Releasing more toxic gas into the atmosphere, right-wing gas bag Sebastian Gorka has alleged that a gay wedding on the children’s show Arthur will lead to the downfall of civilization.
Gorka, a wingnut radio host and former Trump advisor, launched into a rant on his radio show earlier this week labeling the marriage a “war on our culture.”
“Civil society doesn’t exist,” Gorka fumed. “Friendship doesn’t exist, family doesn’t exist — only permanent revolution. Have you seen what I’ve posted on my twitter feed, with regards to family? Arthur is a children’s cartoon. I think it’s actually made with your money, PBS. My children used to watch Arthur 15 years ago, about a rodent-like creature that lived and had fun in his cartoon world. The new season of Arthur will have one of Arthur’s teachers at school, a male teacher, married to a fellow male rodent. Did you have any questions about there being a culture war, ladies and gentlemen? Did you have any doubt in your mind? This is a war for our culture.”
Gorka’s rant refers to a storyline on the long-running PBS show in which the title character’s teacher, Mr. Ratburn, marries a man. The episode has received an overwhelmingly positive response.
Sebastian Gorka is no stranger to incendiary rhetoric or to fringe beliefs. The radio host has previously implied Islam is not a religion, but rather a violent ideology, supported a pro-Nazi order in Hungary and previously worked for alt-right news site Breitbart News. He was also caught carrying a gun aboard a plane in 2016, and numerous critics have uncovered evidence that he may have falsified his doctoral degree from Corvinus University in Hungary.
