Linda Harvey Thinks Gay Employees Should Be Fired

In case you were wondering, if you’re gay, you’re a really lousy employee. Or at least that what Mission America’s Linda Harvey believes. The high priestess of homophobia told her radio listeners that employers not only have the right to fire LGBT employees, but that they should fire them. It’s all about what Harvey deems “high moral standards,”

“This does not deprive anyone of a job by the way, except those who insist on displaying these lifestyles to everyone and forcing their acceptance,” Harvey insists. (To put it another way: no one loses his job except the person who was fired.) If you don’t want to get fired, Harvey has a simple solution: don’t be gay. “The fact is that no one needs to be involved in homosexuality and all of the good qualities a person may have that might make that person otherwise an excellent employee don’t require a homosexual lifestyle.”

And — you knew this was coming — the real victim here is Linda and her pals, not the employee who was canned solely out of bigotry. “Now the activists won’t like this and I may get another slew of hateful emails and such from the tolerance crowd but really where is the actual concern for the rights and beliefs of others? The track record on these so-called non-discrimination regulations shows a consistent and disturbing pattern of bullying and abuse.” Of course, the “tolerance crowd” that Harvey is not part of represents about three-quarters of the American public. We’re looking forward to watching Harvey’s bouffant explode as that number keeps growing.

    Who the F#@( is Linda Harvey? NEXT…

    Who is this Linda Harvey? Never heard of her. Why not a nice big article about her walk to Hayseuss gathering the fear and loathing as she passes by. That would be so friggin special. Then I would have a point to focus on when I respond to her biggotry and narrowness! Share with me, Queerty, share with me!

  • rbmckinney

    And “they” wonder why there is “occasionally” a gay backlash?! I’m sorry, but it’s just this type of bigotry and intolerance that sets my hair on fire–hers has so much hairspray and lacquer on it that the fire department would have to be called. I have no words that would escape a censor.

    Will you stop posting pictures of her and Bachmann, Fuck sake I’m already in chemotherapy for exposure to that vile witch, I don’t need to also be forced to take a bath in a Chernobyl reactor too.

    Fuck sake.

    I recall a friend taking his last breath during the AIDS holocaust. He said there will be a backlash if we don’t keep the pressure going. I think we exhaust our efforts by giving such a person even a pixel worth of recognition. Tho I totally respect your right to express yourself, I don’t think we should let those people sap our energy for what is right, honest, fair, and within the law of the land. No one can hurt me unless I let them works for me.

    Another smiling bigot….

  • Gordon

    Now, now, she’s seen Hay Seuss so let her smile away! He is, methinks, not smiling back at her bigotry and ignorance.

  • jackpapa

    Can’t SOMEBODY shut this cunning runt off?

  • Caliban

    Just as soon as it becomes legal to fire Christians I’ll get on board.

  • PSPoolside

    Thank god I own the business. Would I be free to do the same of Ms. Harvey?

  • Gordon

    Damn straight (pardon, please) you would! It’s that old “good for the goose/gander thing”, don’t you see!

  • GlitterKidder

    Catch fire you nasty old dried up hag…

  • Gordon

    Glitter: Please tell me that you didn’t look down there. Please tell me that. Eeww! You’ve got more gutz than I do. I shudder to think!

  • macmantoo

    Actually she should be fired for looking so constipated. Geeze, everywhere I’ve worked every gay person out performed most of the straights there. Even where I work now 6 of the 7 of us in my department out perform most of the straights working. They’re too busy talking about getting a piece or who they did last weekend.

  • Yiannis

    Isn’t interesting that when you spot that helmet hairdo and that false, hateful smile, you can be pretty sure that a big bigot is behind it. If you carefully observe her eyes, you can see the darkness behind them.

  • Dionte

    I wonder which Demon is in her body.

  • darkanser

    @BigWoody: Oddly, I’m not alone in wondering WTF is this Linda Harvey. Well I guess that’s what search engines are for– not that I really care to find out.

  • Spooky

    If American’s don’t know who this sick, distorted person is. Why does the rest of the world have to keep reading about her?

  • 1EqualityUSA

    Never trust one who frowns and smiles at the same time. Conflicted.

  • Harley

    Well, Queerty, please continue to keep us informed about who our real enemies are. I appreciate the continued coverage of all the hatred and bigotry that is vomited forth from the maggot infected puss ulcers (henceforth referred to as MIPUs) and their brainwashed minions. It’s been made VERY clear that MIPUs love to fire people. Just ask head MIPU Mitt Romney. That gives them POWER. And you know what power does. It turns you into a MIPU. And it’s NOT pretty.

  • anzboy

    She looks like the prim and proper girl’s mom from movies/musicals based on the mid 20th century that wants to keep the current social order, but always loses in the end(and uglier too).
