Do You Believe Sen. Brownback (Or Any Family Member) Doesn’t Know About Uganda’s Gays?

Why won’t Sam Brownback, the Republican U.S. senator from Kansas, join the other members of D.C.’s religious cult The Family to denounce Uganda’s Kill The Gays bill, which the group, arguably, helped perpetrate? Even John Ensign, the anti-gay moral-less senator, is coming out against it. Brownback insists to a roving camera-equipped camera that he doesn’t know about the bill, so he can’t comment. But how about in general terms, does he support the death penalty for gays? Yeah, can’t comment on that either.

Which — for now, as in, this very second — we’re fine with. Politicians are wise not to make public comments to strangers armed with cameras about things they are unfamiliar with. But we suspect Brownback isn’t telling the whole truth about whether he’s familiar with the bill. And if he wasn’t then, he should be by now — he watches Rachel Maddow’s show. So, now that “this very second” has passed, how ’bout it, Brownback?

    If he isn’t familiar with a subject that both the president and the Sec. of State have spoken about then he is obviously too lazy and unqualified to represent his state in Congress……Or he’s just lying.

    Senator Brownback is a huge huge huge liar and hypocrit. He despises gay people.

    Naturally the Washington Post published a gigantic 2-page spread on what a super-kind & Christian man Brownback is last year. It was a huge love-fest extolling his wonderfulness and kindness.

    Meanwhile he was doing everything in his power to destroy all gay people and promote countless schemes to get rich militarist Republican fascists even richer.

    I am almost sure Brownback is just lying. He has been to Uganda on a number of different trips over more than a decade. He has met with Ugandan political leaders during each of those trips. He is certainly aware of the issues in Uganda. He almost certainly suggested some elements of that legislation.
