NC City Commissioner Bill James Now Comparing Gays To ‘Prostitutes And Pedophiles’

“This is about the speech police and controlling an issue that they have gotten a lot of heat over, because you can’t go around censuring people for having a different opinion, or for expressing it. It’s like having a resolution saying we’re going to be uber-sensitive to prostitutes and pedophiles because we don’t want them to get mad.

—Bill James, the Republican Mecklenburg County Commissioner who referred to gays as “sexual predators” in an email chain with colleagues, reacts to the possibility of his peers (led by by Democrat Harold Cogdell) pushing through a resolution that would “[oppose] inflammatory speech or discrimination because of sexual orientation.” Looks like somebody’s gonna have to call the police again.
