On her radio program earlier this week, Sandy Rios, governmental affairs director for the American Family Association, talked about the deadly Amtrak crash that killed eight people and sent 200 more to the hospital in Philadelphia earlier this week.
While running her mouth, Rios (pictured) mentioned that the engineer of the train was gay, then suggested this was likely “a factor” in the crash.
“I’m not inferring that this accident happened because he was gay,” Rios said, “but I do think it’s an interesting part of the story and you can bet it would be edited out.”
(Ms. Rios, if you’re reading, perhaps it was “edited out” because… it’s doesn’t matter!)
Rios continued by suggesting that the engineer may have been “going through some confusion that has to do with the very core of who they are.” She then launched into the story of an airline pilot who she says “put his entire plane at risk because he had an emotional, angry outburst to something that happened” in regards to hormone therapy he was receiving.
“I don’t know,” she concluded, “but I think it is something to be discussed and I think it’s a factor and I doubt you will hear it anywhere else.”
