Holy shit!

You know you kinda hope that misheard or misunderstood that, for the sake of the kids at least, but nope.

Since first making remarks last week using a derogatory term for gay and lesbian people, a Mercer County delegate has escalated his comments, drawing a rebuke from the state Republican Party and possible punishment by the House of Delegates.

Del. Eric Porterfield, R-Mercer, told reporters Monday after a private meeting with House Speaker Roger Hanshaw, R-Clay, he wasn’t sorry for remarks he made during a House Government Organization Committee meeting Wednesday.

During that meeting, Porterfield called the LGBTQ community a “socialist” group, and used an inappropriate word used to demean lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgendered individuals. During television news interviews Friday and Sunday, he compared members of the LGBTQ community to the Ku Klux Klan. He stood by those comments Monday.

“I don’t only not regret them…the LGBTQ are the most brutal tyrannical group in our country,” Porterfield said. “They’re the closest thing to political terrorism in our country.”

During an interview on WVVA-TV in Bluefield Sunday, Porterfield was asked what his reaction would be if his young son or daughter came out as gay to him when they are teens.

“I would take her for a pedicure, I’d take her to get her nails done, and see if she could swim,” Porterfield said. “If it was my son, I’d probably take him hunting, I’d take him fishing, and I would see if he could swim.”

The West Virginia Republican party has denounced Porterfield for his remarks, but I think it is a little too late to put this genie back in the bottle. 

Seriously what is it about the Virginias that makes the people there think it is okay to don blackface or attack the LGBTQ community?

    Porterfield’s wife is as nuts as he is and sadly they have two poor wee children.
    Frankly, I’m surprised any one would stand close enough to this vile man to even shake his hand let alone
    procreate with him to make gay or straight babies.

    So the new derogatory buzz word for the republicans is “socialist”, what happened to “liberal”.

    Well they can put his fat ass on a diet in prison.

    “Describing himself as a “pretty wild, out-of-control teenager,” he later attended a Bible college at age 20.
    In 2006, at age 32, he was immediately, permanently blinded in a physical altercation.
    Tenure and controversies>
    In February 2019, Porterfield faced criticism and calls to resign after he made a series of homophobic comments. After using an anti-gay slur in committee on February 6 while advocating for an amendment that would nullify local LGBT anti-discrimination ordinances, he appeared in interviews on February 8 calling the LGBT community “a modern day version of the Ku Klux Klan” and a “terrorist group.”
    On February 10, wearing a Make America Great Again hat for a television interview with WVVA’s Rachel Anderson, he implied that he would drown his daughter and son (ages 4 and several months, respectively, at the time) if they ever came out to him as gay.
    West Virginia Republican Party chair Melody Potter denounced Porterfield’s words as unacceptable, saying further that they were “hateful, hurtful, and do not reflect the values of our country, our state, and the Republican Party.” In response,
    Porterfield refused to apologize and doubled-down on his original statements, calling LGBTQ people “brutal monsters.” {GAGA}
    “Porterfield has also cited his opposition to a law banning conversion therapy as a contributing factor in his decision to run.” <Wiki*P.

    OT~Born Innocent was the highest-rated television movie to air in the United States in 1974.
    The movie deals with the physical, psychological and sexual abuse of a teenage girl, and included graphic content never before seen on American television. GANG RAPEd<{changed my life}
    "In the final shot, Barbara looks on helplessly as she sees Chris, an innocent, intelligent, decent girl, now fully transformed into a violent, pathological, manipulative, vengeful and cold person, no longer having any guilt or remorse for her actions"

    P.s. By choice-I've never seen the Exorcist.
