Anthony Weiner Dances To Song Calling For Killing Lesbians And Gays

Anthony Weiner, the Ansel Adams of crotch selfies, has a new embarrassment to deal with. The one-time front runner in the New York City mayoral race, Weiner’s campaign has been on life support ever since word that he had assumed the name Carlos Danger to continue his sexting ways. Now video has emerged of Weiner dancing happily to a song that calls for the murder of lesbians and gay men.

At the West Indian American Day Parade in Brooklyn this weekend, Weiner decided to get down (if you can call dad dancing that) to a Jamaican dancehall song, Bumbo Red. According to Gawker, which posted the video, Bumbo Red’s lyrics would never qualify it for the official song of Gay Pride:

Lick a shot inna a battyman head!

Lick a shot inna a lesbian head!

All sodomite dem fi dead,

All lesbian dem fi dead.

In Weiner’s defense, the words are hard to make out. But for someone whose entire candidacy has become a punchline, Weiner hardly needs to look any more clueless than he’s proven himself to be already. That’s particularly true after a summer characterized by an outburst of vicious gay bashings that included murder.

Not that it matters to the election results: Weiner is in the single digits in the polls, suggesting that if the entire rest of the field dropped out, the citizens of New York would probably opt for Nick Gruber as a write-in candidate before they’d cast their votes for Weiner.

The lesson: no matter how catchy the beat, make sure you listen to the lyrics.

      Anyone have a definition for “a parody of a parody”?

      Can we just get through one effing day without mentioning Nick “I am ruthlessly straight” Gruber? Is Queerty getting paid to shill for that douchebag?

      I’ve a better question, why is it acceptable for them to be playing this type of song that calls for the murder of gay and lesbians? How angry would they be that a float in a pride parade was calling for these people’s murder! Just goes to show that soulless zombie sheeple come in a races, not just white Rethuglican!

      Funny how Queerty neglects to mention Weiner’s party affiliation, but if he were a Republican . . . well, you can bet it would be the #1 issue.
      Double standards, and all that.

      Weiner is such an idiot.
      He needs to go back to his porn career because his political career is over.

      @Lawerence: It’s not acceptable at all. They got away with it because most people couldn’t make out the lyrics. Hopefully, this story will get picked up by more mainstream media and parade organizers will have to answer for it. I’m not a fan of Weiner, but I don’t think he meant to celebrate this particular song.

      What’s amusing is if he quit and Huma took his place she’d probably win. From what I’ve read the taxes are going to go sky high(ER) no matter who gets in and there’s going to be business and wealth flight out of the city which of course happens with that. Other cities are going to benefit bigtime.

      @BJ McFrisky:

      Oh I’m sorry BJ, are we supposed to pretend that the parties are equal when it comes to gay rights?

      Lets see here. Which party is it that has gay rights in their party platform, and the party that pushed for a repeal of DADT?

      And….which party is it that has in their party platform, taking marriage rights away from gays and outlawing marriage.

      So please stop with the phony outrage. At this point you’ve become a parody of yourself.

      As for Weiner…is he anorexic or has the stress of being a douchebag made him stop eating?

      As though we didn’t know Weiner was already a clueless yutz.

      I’m not a Weiner fan either. And I agree with you that I don’t think he was aware of the lyrics to the music he was dancing to. However, Anthony David Weiner is not qualified to run for political office only for the reason that he lied about one of his indiscretions. We must hold politicians to the highest standards of character – after all, they make laws for the rest us! Voters must not tolerate liars.

      @manjoguy: If we screened out all of the liars, we’d have no politicians to chose from, LOL.

      Which party enmeshed our country in slavery? Democrats
      Which party imposed DADT? Democrats.
      So you see, the Dems aren’t as angelic as you perceive . . . but then again, liberals never ever are aware of their own hypocrisy (see Obama’s “evolution” on gay marriage). If I’m a parody, Cam, then you’re a sideshow.

      @BJ McFrisky:

      It’s funny, BJ, I write a post pointing out how you are unable to stay on the point of the story because you are such a partisan that you ALWAYS have to attack the Democrats.

      And how do you respond?

      With ANOTHER off-point post, not dealing with the original story attacking the Democrats. LOL!!!

      Thank you for being so predictable, at this point you should be charging per post for the sheer entertainment value. As you notice, nobody on here is defending Weiner in the way that you have defended every anti-gay GOP bigot that directly attacked us. But that’s because deep down it seems like you agree with them.

      I would’ve ignored your typically catty response, except for the fact that you stated that your original comment was to point out how I don’t stay on the point. That’s not true at all. Your original comment read as follows:

      “Oh I’m sorry BJ, are we supposed to pretend that the parties are equal when it comes to gay rights?
      Lets see here. Which party is it that has gay rights in their party platform, and the party that pushed for a repeal of DADT?
      And….which party is it that has in their party platform, taking marriage rights away from gays and outlawing marriage.”

      That mentions nothing about staying on point. All you’re doing is defending Democrats. How predictable. Talk about your self-parodies . . . lordy.

      Anthony Weiner is a hot mess. It’s amazing how this little appendage creates such downfalls for politicians and religious leaders.
