Remember the above sound byte from Florida Senator Marco Rubio from a while back? He was whining about being called “bigoted” because he is allegedly “pro- traditional marriage.”
Of course this is how he feels about the ability to fire someone for being gay (hint – he supports it):
Or adding gays to immigration legislation (hint – he is totally against it):
“If this bill has in it something that gives gay couples immigration rights and so forth, it kills the bill. I’m done,” Rubio said Thursday during an interview on the Andrea Tantaros Show. “I’m off it, and I’ve said that repeatedly. I don’t think that’s going to happen and it shouldn’t happen. This is already a difficult enough issue as it is.”
Marco Rubio opposes allowing gays to be married. He opposes adding gay couples to comprehensive immigration legislation. And he opposes protecting gays from job discrimination.
My question is just at what point is it okay to entertain the notion that Rubio has a nasty bias against the gay community?
Senator Rubio reminds me of when white racists attempted to push the false narrative that they weren’t “anti-black,” but “pro-white.”
No matter how noble or unassuming he attempts to make it sound, we are still talking about denying people rights simply because of who they are.
And here I thought that was bigotry.
