Video: Sam Clovis pre-launches U.S. Senate campaign by going on rabidly anti-LGBT show, accusing gays of wanting to breakdown society

by Jeremy Hooper

Radio host Sam Clovis is expected to soon announce his intent to run for U.S. Senate, looking to fill the seat of retiring Democratic stalwart Tom Harkin. As a pre-game to that expected announcement, Clovis chose to go on the American Family Radio show of the exceedingly hostile Bryan Fischer, where the would-be Senator accused marriages like mine of having a real agenda geared at "breaking down the family" before then attacking basic nondiscrimination protections for LGBT people (his logic being that "there aren't enough of 'em" and the left-handed and blue-eyed aren't protected).

Clip is cued to the (far-)right place:

So wait, we're too much of a minority to have basic protections against unfair employment practices, yet we are powerful enough to "breakdown" the family and society in America? Um, no, Mr. Clovis—you have to pick one. We're either a non-entity that doesn't meet your standard of recognition or we're a heat-sinking missile with the power to destroy all that is holy. It is hard to see how we can be both.

This might be a fun candidacy!
