Star Parker Thinks The Gay Has Turned Europeans Into Zombies


Joseph Farah and his mustache did an interview with Star Parker, self-professed former “welfare queen” turned wingnut activist, and she made some truly bizarre statements. She apparently thinks that giving gay people equality has caused people in Europe to stop talking to one another and become zombies.

“But the laws, um, the laws that are pushing homosexuality out into society,” said Parker, “when, when, when you have this type of vileness exalted, the wicked go on the prowl. That’s what the Proverbs says, is that if the wicked can now go on the prowl, people with the resources will now pull away, and so they become much more private.”

She concluded, “So while you have ill activity now in the public square, you have those decent people and quiet communities becoming much more, you know, refined, and more closed. And that’s not healthy for us as a society because when you go start walking out in the public square and nobody talks to each other, that’s what they do in Europe. They’re just a bunch of zombies and we don’t want that as Americans.”

*tilting head to the side* They just get weirder and weirder, don’t they?

    Wingnuttia seems to have a former social demon for everything they hate. Ex-gay, ex-atheist, ex-liberal, ex-welfare queen.

    …that if the wicked can now go on the prowl, people with the resources will now pull away, and so they become much more private.

    So the job creators don’t like equity? First taxes made them sad and depressed so they stop making new jobs now two people they never met and will never will meet are making them with drawn, what a fragile bunch.

    Because here in America, we talk to random strangers on the street…. Wait, we don’t.

    Of course we do.

    Usually the conversation starts with “You ain’t from around here, boy” …

    Sounds like the title of the first of a series of children’s books that is just waiting to be written. Look out Roald Dahl!

    Wow, “vileness exalted” and “wicked go on the prowl”. That little screed was the vilest of the vile. Is this her way of celebrating halloween, because that is scary.

  6. dugglebogey says

    I’m enamored with the idea that keeping gay people in the closet is keeping them out of “our society.” THEY WERE STILL IN SOCIETY, RETARD. It’s just now they are being honest about who they are, because they don’t have to lie to be able to do things like NOT GET THE SHIT KICKED OUT OF THEM OR MURDERED BY REDNECKS LIKE YOU.

    Ahh, I think I get it now why fundies always claim they’re not being allowed to talk and express themselves. It all makes sense if by “talk” they mean “beat the shit out of”. They don’t do that in Europe, but here in America we talk to each other, with proper sinattacks, clawses and punchyouation.

  8. says

    what the flick is she gabbling about? What has “This President” done against her goofy faith?
    Pushing homosexuality out into society?
    I get this from xtians now and then because I refuse to pretend to be something I’m not. They say “why do you have to shove it in our face?”
    This from the bunch that goes from door to door telling me I’m hell-bound and evil.

    ” because when you go start walking out in the public square and nobody talks to each other, that’s what they do in Europe. They’re just a bunch of zombies and we don’t want that as Americans.”

    I wonder…does she know that “Europe” is not a country or nation?
    The level of stupidity exhibited by such a statement lets me to believe she has the same problems with geography that a large number of americans have, including former presidents.
    I just spent two weeks on the Azores islands…people were talking everywhere in public. What happened?

  10. jnorris says

    you have those decent people and quiet communities becoming much more, you know, refined, and more closed

    They’re called gated communities and are so to keep the minorities out. Has nothing to do with any god.

  11. eric says

    So while you have ill activity now in the public square…

    Its worth pointing out that by “ill activity” she means free speech.

    After all, nobody’s demanding we legalize sex on the streetcorner. The thing going on in the public square that she’s upset about is people admitting to being gay, talking about being gay, wearing t-shirts in support of causes she doesn’t like, etc., etc…

  12. richenry says

    Damn, she knows us Europeans only too well. I can’t even go to the corner shop to buy a Cornetto without some wicked zombie prowling behind me… or was that a film I watched?
    Wait… does she think “Shaun of the dead” was a documentary?

  13. John Pieret says

    *tilting head to the side*

    Oh, You meant you were tilting your head to the side … it would be pretty hard for her to get her head that far up her ass by tilting it to the side.

  14. Ex Patriot says

    I am american living for the past 14 years in a small country in Europe and that stupid bitch should come to the cafe where I have coffee each morning and see tjhe zombies talking to each other and to me. People here are more friendly than most I ever met in the states. I walk to the cafe each day when I can and it is always good morning, how are you today and such. The stupid cow should come to Europe and find out dumb she really is

  15. Nick Gotts says

    Ex Patriot,

    You could have said that without the misogyny – we have enough of it in Europe, we don’t need to import it from the USA.

  16. magistramarla says

    When I visited Europe I found the people there extremely friendly and outgoing.
    Japan was even more friendly, and the last time I looked, most of their citizens aren’t even xtians.

  17. eric says

    Any zombie who attempted to eat her brains would die of malnutrition

    We can generalize this; of course the zombies hang out in Europe instead of the USA….

  18. Acolyte of Sagan says

    …..when you go start walking out in the public square and nobody talks to each other, that’s what they do in Europe

    Nah, that’s just London; the rest of us are a very sociable bunch.
    I must admit that I had a wee giggle at the thought that homosexuals are ghetto-ising the rest of us. And we all that in the wingnut imaginary world, those ghettos would lead to – the campest camps of them all. “Sorry, duckie, but if you’re not wearing the rainbow badge, it’s the ovens for you-hoo”.

    Star Parker states:

    . . . when you have this type of vileness exalted [gays out of the closet with more of their rights protected], the wicked go on the prowl. That’s what the Proverbs says, is that if the wicked can now go on the prowl, people with the resources will now pull away, and so they become much more private.”

    She concluded, “So while you have ill activity now in the public square, you have those decent people and quiet communities becoming much more, you know, refined, and more closed. And that’s not healthy for us as a society because when you go start walking out in the public square and nobody talks to each other, that’s what they do in Europe. They’re just a bunch of zombies and we don’t want that as Americans.”

    This is a new low in conservative Christian thinking.

    Usually these people fail by depending on post hoc thinking to falsely claim their bigoted beliefs reconcile to their gods’ position on the matter, which is proved by some prior catastrophic event. E.g., Katrina happens, New Orleans has gay people; therefore God hates gays so much he’d cause a catastrophe. (Where the gay neighborhoods did better than the more religious ones; after all, God’s aim remains poor.)

    But here Ms. Parker is looking for anecdotes that aren’t real to prove a Bible verse is prophetic. So what’s next? Conjure up a Katrina that never happened and claim that’s proof conservative Christian hatred of gay people and their families has once again been validated as the same position as their gods’?

    Aren’t we all ex-welfare queens? We don’t start immediately supporting ourselves as soon as we exit the womb.

  21. Lyle says

    @Doug Little #25.

    Lazy babies should get jobs. Instead they just eat, sleep, poop and cry. I want my country back.

  22. Pen says

    @ Acolyte of Sagan # 22 – you’re sounding a bit like Ms Parker, mate. Leaping to conclusions based on limited experience. I find my little corner of London to be the friendliest place I’ve lived out of many. No worries about not fitting in here! Actually, isn’t slagging off zombies a bit provincial and prejudiced, come to think of it?

  23. freehand says

    “you have those decent people and quiet communities becoming much more, you know, refined,”

    And this is a problem… why?

  24. caseloweraz says

    Uh-oh — Zombies of Europe.

    They’re those Continental folks
    whom Star Parker invokes
    as emblems of division.
    She says they never talk
    When in public they walk.
    Her claim deserves derision.

    Oh no! Zombies of Europe
    Oh no!

    You see them partyin’ with delight
    In cities now and then.
    Little old lady got conversated late last night;
    Zombies of Europe again…

    Best not go where they are;
    They’ll dance your heart out, Star.

    So we already had Warren Zevon, but my mind went in a different direction. All I can think of reading this is the Beastie Boys. I mean, she’s saying that gay people have effected the way that people talk in Europe, in a way that she describes as ill. There’s only one conclusion. They brought Ill Communication to Europe.

    In all seriousness, is it this easy to get a piece of wingnut welfare? I mean really, all you have to do is assert that gay people in Europe have made people not talk to each other? I know that people in the right have made careers out of claiming all sorts of untrue things about places that their ignorant followers will never go, but this is just so simplistic and stupid.

    It’s ironic though, I’ve been becoming more social talking to gay people. Call it what you will, autistic spectrum disorder, aspergers, just being socially weird, but talking to people isn’t always easy for me. But I’ve been interacting with a bunch of gay people (or rather a group with a surprisingly high proportion of gay people) for a while now, and have been developing my social skills a bit.

    So thank you, “the gay”.

  26. blf says

    Wow! I must have hallucinated most of today, which was spent walking around the South France seaside village where I live, having coffees and talking, a few beers and talking, some appointments (more talking), and running into several people I haven’t seen in, oh, something like a week. Didn’t have any brainz, but did have a great seafood dinner. The fish did look a bit like a zombie…

  27. iangould says

    No, no, no.

    That Europeans are ville and inferior to Americans is true, of course

    But it’s not because of their laws on gay rights it’d because of their laws on hate speech.

    By all means exalt Americans’ manifest superiority but do it for the right reasons

  28. Robert B. says

    What dugglebogey said. We and our homosexuality were always in society, Ms. Parker, we just weren’t talking to you. If you didn’t have such a whiny grip on our tax deductions and hospital visitation rights, we still wouldn’t be talking to you. (In fact, I’m not sure why straight people talk to you.)

  29. scienceavenger says

    After all, nobody’s demanding we legalize sex on the streetcorner.

    I am. The world would be a happier place.

  30. Thumper; Immorally Inferior Sergeant Major in the Grand Gynarchy Mangina Corps (GGMC) says

    Hi! *waves*

    I was born, raised, and currently live in England, which makes me a bona fide European *holds up certificate*; and I am here to assure you all that I feel no hunger for human brains. Thanks. Carry on!
