Sometimes you’ve got to assume that when people are quoted saying terribly homophobic things in the press, they were misquoted. “They can’t really think that,” you wonder to yourself. But when it comes to Joe “the Plumber” Wurzelbacher, you’d be wrong.
In an interview with Christianity Today, the unofficial spokesman of blue collar America’s ignoramuses — and not all of blue collar America — says about same-sex marriage on the state level: “At a state level, it’s up to them. I don’t want it to be a federal thing. I personally still think it’s wrong. People don’t understand the dictionary—it’s called queer. Queer means strange and unusual. It’s not like a slur, like you would call a white person a honky or something like that. You know, God is pretty explicit in what we’re supposed to do—what man and woman are for. Now, at the same time, we’re supposed to love everybody and accept people, and preach against the sins. I’ve had some friends that are actually homosexual. And, I mean, they know where I stand, and they know that I wouldn’t have them anywhere near my children. But at the same time, they’re people, and they’re going to do their thing.”
Joe Wurzelbacher: Linguist expert and proud father.
And why don’t I live in Ohio anymore? Not everyone is like that, but there are enough. Hmmmm, I wonder how that correlates to the brain drain…
Joe the Douchebag has spawn? now i remember why i support in institutionalized sterilization…
He’s just mad because people say he lays pipe for a living. 😉
goodness,what if one of his kids is “one of the enemy”…poor kiddo
I hope the universe practices divine justice and he ends up having a gay kid. 🙂
“I wouldn’t have them anywhere near my children”…I have some friends who are ‘actually’ homosexual…
I’m speechless…did this asshole pay extra for his “double helping of stupid” or did it come free with his GOP membership?
Joe Wurzel-jerk is not only ugly to look at, he’s also got an ugly mind. Like many straight white men from the Republican Party, “two hot chicks” seems to be OK. I bet this jerk has drooled over pictures of lesbians, just like most sleazy straight male hypocrites have.
@Jhon: A mean trick to pull on the kid, though…
An ‘actual’ homosexual? As opposed to what, Joe?
He’s just an idiot. I would say ignore him, but his lot are a large group of what keeps the democratic process going, unfortunately.
And we don’t want him near us or our children.
He must mean his homo friends from gaypatriot.org.
I dunno, guys, never heard a word about him having kids (or a wife, for that matter) – I bet they’re about as real as his ‘career’ as a plumber and that 250 Grand he’s gonna be earning when he buys out his boss. Nothing about this guy is real except his prideful ignorance – that’s all the Republicans seem to have these days.
Good fucking grief! Haven’t this guy’s 15 minutes expired yet?
Sadly what he and Sarah Palin represent in so many ways is the mediocre level education has fallen to in this country. Both of them are being showcased because not one republican is willing to step up to the plate and admit that not only have GROSS mistakes been made but they do not have a clue as how to get them fixed.
Sarah Palin is nothing but a little vixen who no doubt will write a book exposing them for what they are so now they must bow to her every whim and as a political payoff Obama and company leave her alone for the most part (no critisism of her ignorance).
As for Bazooka Joe far more than enough has been printed about this unlicensed plumber. Even Fox Noise ignores him for the most part. Since Hollywood has brought everything else to the wide-screen how long will it be before Mr. Clean makes his debut? He should start hitting the gym instead of the 7-11 at 1am for beer.
Would a friend constitute allowing them to be apart of your life? Now are we talking business friend, mutal friend, acquaintance, the guy you said “hi” to serving your coffee? Or is he the hairdresser that your wife goes to see and shares all your dirty little secrets?
I can’t wait for Megan McCain’s article on this.
Let the guy keep talking because he is just digging himself into a hole. He sounds like a klan member and I’m sure most decent people here the hate underlying all his rhetoric. He is one the reasons why OBAMA won. The Guy is Evil and people see it so the decent folks in the middle are being chased away from the Republican Party. He is doing the work of the Left.
This is a pathetic obvious plea for media attention. He saw how much press little miss runner-up got for her comments so now he’s trying to jump on the band wagon.
So he doesn’t want “actual” homosexuals near his kids? How come the interviewer didn’t ask for specifics as to why?
What a crazy country we live in. Not too long ago, in Florida, a judge gave custody of a child to a CONVICTED murderer, the father because the mother was a lesbian, in a committed relationship.
Obviously, I’m saying Joe the Jerk is obviously unaware that his children probably already do hang out with some people who are much “Worse” than homos!
why do these obvious homophobes always say they have gay friends. knowing a gay person is not the same as being friends. and with the way joe talks he has not got any gay friends.
are his child support payments up to date?
Really? Does anyone even say Honky anymore?
There is some text missing here. Allow me to fill in the gaps.
I’ve had some friends that are actually homosexual(I’ve had them on the couch, the kitchen table, back of a car) . And, I mean, they know where I stand(The third tree on the left at the sixth truck stop on Highway 57), and they know that I wouldn’t have them anywhere near my children(because I never learned to share in kindergarten).
My rule number #1: The degree of homophobia is directly proportional to latent homosexuality.
another stupid nitwit from a red state. its disgusting how the republicans use these hillbillys to stir up the hate in the middle states for there own agenda.
@Queerky: Wrong! Almost all anti-gay bigots are haterosexual. Stop being a water carrier for haterosexuals. The idea that haterosexuals are pure and perfect and gay people are everything evil is bigoted and completely false.
Do you read English?
@sal & @Jhon: Hopefully someone in that family would love them and accept them for who they are. How sad that their father is such an idiot H8er.
@dk: Yep, nothing describes Joe the Nonlicensed “Plumber” better than media whore.
Some people just need to have a steroid-and fried-food-induced heart attack in front of their tv while watching Bill O’Riley!!!
“My rule number #1: The degree of homophobia is directly proportional to latent homosexuality.”
HEY! That’s MY rule, too!
I love how these folks pick and choose what Christian rules to follow…
he mentions “what a man and woman are for”…I can only assume that he means procreation. well, God ALSO said that man & woman are supposed to have sex ONLY for procreating purposes. if they can’t have kids, they aren’t supposed to get down. also, no masturbation as every sperm is sacred. does he subscribe to THOSE rules, too?
I saw this tool on “Real Time” a few weeks ago. He parrots conservative talking points so much that they start sounding like non sequitors. I’m just as perplexed as Pragmatist in that I thought his 15 minutes were up.
@Queerky: Yes, I do. Basically you said closeted gay people are responsible for anti-gay oppression and I told you were wrong, heterosexuals are. Sure there are a few gay people that are doing haterosexuals’ work including you. Gay people like you say anti-gay bigots are gay to keep haterosexuals clear from their record of oppression. Gay people like you say someone they don’t like is gay because it keeps haterosexuals clear from their record of oppression.
Well, I don’t want him anywhere near my son, so I guess we’re equal.
sorry to butt in but…
“Basically you said closeted gay people are responsible for anti-gay oppression”
no, Queerky didn’t say that. what he DID say was that the level of one’s homophobia is usually directly proportionate to how deep in the closet he or she is.
NO WHERE in that post does it say that closeted gays are the ones responsible for anti-gay oppression.
and as a breeder myself, I take offense to your term of “haterosexual”. I may be straight, but I ain’t narrow.
@Jhon: Don’t wish that. That kid will have to have this man as a father.
@Jaroslaw: wow really?
@atdleft: yup,hope so
PLAYS WELL WITH OTHERS
Hey douchebag: your 15 mins were up years ago, go the fuck away…
First of all not all republicans are this ignorant. A homosexual is attracted to the same sex while a pedophile is attracted to children. I have a question for you, joe- if gays are also pedophiles then explain why so many men and women are convicted of molesting children of their opposite sex? While I’m on the subject I want to point out how hypocritical democrats are on this subject. You elected a president that kisses the asses of Muslims who in turn kill gays in their country.
