MP Apologizes For Nonsensical “Homosexual Faggot” Remark


Canadian politico Tom Lukiwski sure knows how to trash talk. Or is talk trash? Regardless, this 1991 video of the conservative MP definitely qualifies as garbage. Globe and Mail explains:

The video was taped in 1991, inside the Progressive Conservative campaign headquarters of Grant Devine who was making an unsuccessful bid for re-election as Saskatchewan premier. It was released by the Saskatchewan NDP Thursday, after it was found in an office.

It features several shots of a young staff clowning around. In it Mr. Lukiwski tells the camera: “There’s A’s and there’s B’s. The A’s are guys like me. The B’s are homosexual faggots with dirt on their fingernails that transmit diseases.”

He obviously doesn’t know us at all!

Lukiwski promptly apologized for the comments following the tape’s release, saying: “I’m ashamed [of] the comments. If I could take those comments back, I would… I have no prejudice against gay people whatsoever. Those comments do not reflect the type of person I am.” As one can imagine, the politician’s apologies are doing nothing to curb the calls for his job. Oh, also, the video may not be safe for work.

      This idiot should step down! He also made xenophobic remarks about Ukrainian people, which were branded “racist”, but in my opinion, they weren’t since Ukrainians are also white, but yeah. New Democrat MP Bill Siksay, who is also gay has asked the government to “take proper action”. We’ll see what happens!

      I am never talking around a video camera ever again. I wonder what I’ve said in the past that could come up and bite me?
