When Rick Scarborough invited Peter LaBarbera, the man who believes there is a Big Gay Inc. and a gay hall of fame, to address his Tea Party Unity group today, anticipation was high for some hilarious Grade-A bigoted stupidity.
They did not disappoint. Among selected topics, Scarborough and LaBarbera discussed the possibility of (I kid you not) somehow filing a "class action lawsuit" against homosexuality.
"We need to work on our conservative, alternate media and say, 'look, don't do the pro-gay thing, why don't you rather step out and support these ex-gays?'" said LaBarbera. "We should encourage Fox News to tell their stories. Fox is now telling the stories of black conservatives because the other media is not doing that, we should all get on Fox and say, 'come on, tell these stories, these wonderful stories of happy men and women who have left the homosexual lifestyle.'"
"Peter, the whole issue of a class action lawsuit, you and I have talked about this a little bit," said Scarborough. "I just wonder if you've explored that, talked to anyone about it. Obviously, statistically now even the Centers for Disease Control verifies that homosexuality much more likely leads to AIDS than smoking leads to cancer. And yet the entire nation has rejected smoking, billions of dollars are put into a trust fund to help cancer victims and the tobacco industry was held accountable for that. Any thoughts on that kind of an approach?"
"Yeah I think that's great," LaBarbera replied. "I would love to see it. We always wanted to see one of the kid in high school who was counseled by the official school counselor to just be gay, then he comes down with HIV. But we never really got the client for that."
