Swanson: Civil Unions Make Colorado Worse Than North Korea

Kevin Swanson and Dave Buehner continue to stake their claim to being the dumbest and most outrageous voices in wingnut radio. After Colorado passed a bill allowing civil unions for gay couples, they declared that state to now be even worse than North Korea.

Swanson: Colorado’s become probably the worst state in the union right now and I happen to be broadcasting from the state of Colorado. The front page of the Denver Post yesterday morning gave us a picture of our leaders that is the House Majority Leader in Colorado who is celebrating and dancing on the gravestone of the old Christian order of the last 2,000 years because they have won and God is dead as far as they are concerned. We have the House Majority Leader, and by the way 10 percent of the House and Senate in Colorado are homosexuals, and Dave they are performing a homosexual act on the front page of the Denver Post, meaning that the Denver government as far as I’m concerned is probably the most immoral government, flagrantly thwarting the government of God in Heaven, and they are doing it far worse than anybody in Communist China government has ever done, probably worse than the North Korean government as well.

I would say at this point in the history of America, Colorado government is the worst in the world as far as flagrantly thwarting God’s law on the front page of the Denver Post. Dave, a homosexual act being performed in this picture on the front page of the Denver Post, just shocking, I saw you turn your head, you took one look and turned your head, you didn’t want to look at it, I’m going to turn it over.

Buehner: The headline should read ‘Capital Crime.’ A little pun intended there because it is a capital crime.

Swanson: These are our leaders. This is Ahab. This is Nero. Well, Nero did effectively the same thing, he was doing the same thing and of course he persecuted Christians, which is what happens, so not completely unusual in the history of the world. But Dave we’re talking about the apostate Christian West and showing the big middle finger to God above and thwarting his law. This is about as blatant as I’ve ever seen in my life; this is the most blatant thing I’ve seen in my life.

Buehner: This is brazen, what San Francisco has done on the city level, Colorado is now doing on the state level.

I think they should move to North Korea and see if Colorado is really worse. And please take Dennis Rodman with you.

    Gee, Colorado only approved same sex civil unions. That must make Maryland, Washington State, and Maine worse then Nazi Germany because the voters in those states approved same sex marriages.

    10% of the Colorado legislature is gay???

  2. Moggie says

    “Capital crime”. So Buehner has pretty much explicitly said that he believes people should be executed for being gay.

    Ahab?

    All that most maddens and torments; all that stirs up the less of things; all truth with malice in it; all that cracks the sinews and cakes the brain; all the subtle demonisms of life and thought; all evil, to crazy Ahab, were visibly personified, and made practically assailable in Moby Dick. He piled upon the whale’s white hump the sum of all the general rage and hate felt by his whole race from Adam down; and then, as if his chest had been a mortar, he burst his hot heart’s shell upon it.

    What’s Billo ever done to this Swanson person?

    Ahab?

    If you clean the spittle off (warning: strong industrial solvents needed, wear protective clothing and handle with extreme care), it’s perhaps a typo for Arab. In this nutter’s mind, Arabs=Muslims, Muslim≠Xian, ¬Xian⇒Teh Gay/commie/whatever, ergo!, criminals. No jury or trial or even law needed.

    Here‘s what the Minority Leader did. Not exactly doing a jig on christianity’s grave whilst indulging in iccky HomoButtSeks, more like kissing someone – the horror, the horror, the horror!!

    Here’s a story on the picture. Warning SFW gaysex…please have your fainting-couch at the ready!

    But I had to laugh at the qualifiers on this sentence: “I would say at this point in the history of America, Colorado government is the worst in the world as far as flagrantly thwarting God’s law on the front page of the Denver Post.”

    See, North Korea is worse at flaunting god’s lawls but they can’t get it on the front page of the Denver Post – The Lord of the Universe’s preferred print medium! (If you use that Denver Post, I expect remuneration!)

    doh – dingo beat me to the link — but his is HuffPo. Hah – Jeezues would never read huffpo (unless it was in incognito window).

  8. dingojack says

    No, I think he was thinking of Ahab, who was married to Jezebel (so not even close to a same sex marriage there then).

    Damn, I was predicting that would happen only if a state passed gay marriage and more restrictions on guns. What is CO now that they’ve passed gun control as well; worse than Hell itself?

    No but it was an interracial one Phoenican and Hebrew, which still pushes the right buttons with at least some of the target audience.

    “Swanson: Colorado’s become probably the worst state in the union right now and I happen to be broadcasting from the state of Colorado. “

    Well, that should get the locals on side then!

    Also I think maybe he was meaning Captain Ahab from, ahem, Moby Dick.

    @2. slc1 :

    Whyever wouldn’t it be? Seems about the right proportion in my reckoning.

    @3. matty1 : Cheers for those links. Yeah, nothing bad or really blatantly sexual even. Just two men kissing. Seen every day in a lot of nations worldwide generally as a polite greeting custom anyhow – although perhaps not usually with so much tongue – though you couldn’t really tell from that pic anyhow! Very tame. Wonder how Swanson & Buehner woudl react to coverage of the Sydney mardis gras!

  13. StevoR : Free West Papua, free Tibet, let the Chagossians return! says

    Argh! Blockquote fail – second line is Slc1’s naturally.

    Also ‘woudl’ = would in last line.

    @ Moggie :

    “Capital crime”. So Buehner has pretty much explicitly said that he believes people should be executed for being gay.

    That’s what strikes me as by far the worst thing here in this otherwise comical bit of hyperbole too.
    Isn’t that blatant and illegal hate speech even in the US of A?

  14. w00dview says

    Basically the law does not mention LGBT rights one way or another but the culture condemns any sexuality outside of producing children for the good of the state.

    So basically, what the religious right wants to happen in the US? Just replace state with God and their agenda is identical. I love it when wingnuts don’t realise that they share more in common with actual commies than people they accuse of being commies.

    It’s this Ahab:

    1 Kings 16:29-33
    And Ahab the son of Omri did evil in the sight of the LORD above all that were before him.
    And it came to pass, as if it had been a light thing for him to walk in the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, that he took as his wife Jezebel the daughter of Ethbaal king of the Sidonians, and went and served Baal, and worshiped him.
    And he raised up an altar for Baal in the house of Baal, which he had built in Samaria.
    And Ahab made an idol pole; and Ahab did more to provoke the LORD God of Israel to anger than all the kings of Israel that were before him.

    It’s all this idol-worship bullshit. Or *actual god worship* – Yahweh just happened to kick Baal’s ass and Elijah killed all his prophets, so of course if you supported the losing god, you’re “teh most evil”.

    @ 20. slc1

    Re StevoR @ #18 – 10% seems high to me but what do I know. Is 10% of the Australian Parliament gay?

    I do not know for sure but think that is probably the case. We Aussies definitely do have some gay politicians most notably former Australian Greens Party leader Bob Brown, ALP senator Penny Wong who is married to her partner and has a child with her and South Aussie Minister for social inclusion Ian Hunter who married his boyfriend Leith Semmens in Spain in December last year around the 20th.These are just the most prominent trio who are very publicly out and well known.

    Ten percent is, so I gather, around the correct percentage of the general population of all people that is gay. That figure may well of course be an underestimate given the stigma attached and Kinsey’s findings.

    My feeling is that if anything ten percent is an underestimate and at least ten percent of Aussie politicians are but I haven’t checked the numbers and it is, of course, difficult to make an accurate count given the potential likelihood that an unclear number will still be in the closet.

    Re StevoR @ #23

    The usual estimate quoted in the US is 5%. However, how does one count switch hitters? If they are counted as gay, then the number might be up around 10%.

  18. says

    When Kinsey came up with his 10% figure he was looking at sexual behavior not identity, for obvious reasons (especially during Kinsey’s time) there are more people who engage in same sex behavior than who consider themselves homosexual or bisexual. 5% is the number who identify as gay/lesbian (not sure if it includes bisexual/pansexual, wouldn’t be surprised if it didn’t since they often get ignored in such surveys).
