New York Times, News Shows In Meltdown-- Over Paladino's "Gay Parades Are Disgusting" Remarks
The New York Times reports "Despite an uproar over his remarks about gays, Carl P. Paladino appeared on national television on Monday and expressed revulsion at gay pride parades."
And "Mr. Paladino restated his criticism of Andrew M. Cuomo, his Democratic opponent for governor of New York, for having taken his young daughters to a gay pride parade, saying that such events were inappropriate for children.
"Is that normal? Would you do it? Would you take your children to a gay pride parade?" Mr. Paladino asked the host Matt Lauer on the "Today" show, speaking of Mr. Cuomo.
"I don't think it's proper for them to go there and watch a couple of grown men grind against each other. I don't think that's proper. I think it's disgusting."
"No, I don't regret the remarks," he added."
So the national news media and now the New York media and the entire Gay Lobby is jumping up and down demanding an apology for his "insensitive" remarks because of recent crimes in New York and elsewhere.
So so-called gay rights advocates in the media are using criminal acts performed by bad people to make matters worse-- they demand all the good people who practice morality should endorse obscene acts and bend to the pro-homosexual lobby.
People who physically attack gays are criminals.
People who question homosexuality and its public propaganda assault on Christians for their moral beliefs or for their values are not the same as criminals.
Treating moral people as criminals who should be condemned will fuel the Tea Party Express and further distinguish moral candidates,or citizens, and will backfire on the New York media and their elitist backers in the liberal monolith (the "unbeatable" gay lobby and special interests).
The two issues are separate and not equal. One has nothing to do with the other.
The entire establishment repeats "there's nothing wrong with public displays of lewd homosexual behavior" as if to treat what Mr. Paldino observed directly as an "overreaction".
Later in interviews at 1:30 p.m. Monday, Carl Paladino defended his remarks and stood his ground in the New York Times interview.
"Young children should not be exposed to that at a young age. They don't understand, it's a very difficult thing," Mr. Paladino said. "And exposing them to homosexuality, especially at a gay pride parade - and I don't know if you have ever been to one, but they wear these little Speedos and they grind against each other and it's just a terrible thing."
Mr. Paladino elaborated on those remarks during his interview on "Good Morning America," saying that he and his wife had "stumbled on" a gay pride parade once during a trip to Toronto.
