There is no limit to the dumb crap wingnuts will believe, no mental contortion too great, no combination of dogwhistles too insane, when it comes to propping up the completely disproven, intellectually bereft worldview of the American fundamentalist bigot. Consider this video round-up of the most insane things said by wingnuts in the hearings on whether or not to rescind marriage equality in New Hampshire. I’ll let Igor Volsky set it up for you:
Below is a video compilation of some of the most outrageous claims levied by opponents of the measure, along with a musical surprise from a supporter of marriage equality:
- REP. ALFRED BALDASARO: “The same thing happened in Canada, where they passed gay marriage. Now they’re fighting in the courts to get 3 husbands, 3 wives.”
- SEN. FENTON GROEN: “[Homosexuality] will significantly increase their risk of serious diseases and can be expected to significantly shorten their lives.”
- HOWARD KAUFMAN: “A future redefinition of marriage that permits polygamy would facilitate the introduction an aspect of Sharia or Islamic law that permits a man to have up to four wives.”
Sharia law. Oh, dear god. Watch it:
It’s a wonder how they figure out how to put on pants in the morning.
