This Charming Republican Senate Candidate Loves Trump And Using Gay Slurs

by matt baume July 06, 2016


Hey, this Ted Busiek guy sounds fun! He’s not afraid to tell it like it is, and apparently “like it is” is calling anyone who challenges Donald Trump a “self-righteous faggot.”

Busiek was referring to Trump’s performance in a 1993 clip, where the businessman argued on-camera that Native Americans shouldn’t be allowed to run their own tribe’s affairs because “they don’t look like Indians to me.”

Good lord. Evidently, that 23-year-old clip met with Ted’s approval, and he wrote, “DONALD TRUMP. Putting self-righteous faggots in their place since 1993. How I love this fellow.”

Ted later walked back the comment, ever so slightly. He told reporters that he didn’t mean the word “faggot” in a “hateful sense,” just that it’s another word for someone who’s “obnoxious” and “kind of being a jerk.”

He added, “You can insult somebody without being hateful,” and said that gay couples shouldn’t be allowed to get married or adopt children. He’s also called trans people “perverts.” Okay so what does he actually think hate is, if this isn’t it?

Trump hasn’t responded publicly to the kerfuffle. But the end result of the whole thing is that we are yet again talking about the guy, so on balance he probably considers this a PR victory.

Racism Is A Major Problem In The Gay Community, And This Election Proves It

by Dan Tracer October 27, 2016

For Trump.” [...]
