J.D. Vance opposes protecting his own interracial marriage because he hates gay people so much

Another day, another stupid remark from GOP clown of Ohio J.D. Vance.

This week, the Hillbilly Elegy author said he doesn’t support federal legislation to codify protections for same-sex or interracial marriage, calling it a “bizarre distraction” from other more important issues, such as outlawing porn, banning anything LGBTQ-related from classrooms, and forcing 10-year-old rape victims to birth babies.

Speaking to reporters at the Ohio State Fair on Tuesday, Vance was asked about the Respect of Marriage Act, which passed in the U.S. House last month.

The law repeals the Defense of Marriage Act, which defined marriage as a union between one man and one woman. It would requires states to recognize all marriages as long as they were deemed valid in the state where they were performed.

Vance, who is married to an Indian-American woman and whose U.S. Senate campaign is being largely funded by gay billionaire Peter Thiel, replied, “You have a sky-high inflation crisis, you have a huge recessionary problem, and we’re arguing about rights that have already been granted by the Supreme Court. It seems like a bizarre distraction for a country that actually has much, much deeper and more serious crises.”

He went on to argue that the Respect of Marriage Act raises religious liberty concerns and doesn’t account for the rights of churches or nonprofits to operate according to their values.

Because irony is apparently dead, shortly after making the remarks, Vance released a new campaign ad on Twitter featuring his wife, Usha, talking about their loving interracial marriage and beautiful son.

In May, Vance told the fearmonger rag Crisis Magazine that he wanted to ban all porn because he believed it was harmful to American families.

“I think the combination of [adult entertainment], abortion have basically created a really lonely, isolated generation that isn’t getting married, they’re not having families, and they’re actually not even totally sure how to interact with each other,” he said.

We’d argue a much more effective way to ensure the safety and longevity of American families would be to codify protections of marriages, not banning porn.

Now, some tweets…
