‘Douche du Jour’: Republican Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler Compares Gay Marriage to Pedophilia & Incest
US Representative Vicky Hartzler, a Missouri Republican, appeared at the Eagle Forums Collegians 2011 Summit in Washington, DC yesterday. There, the fundamentalist congresswoman addressed the gathering of conservative college students and spoke about the implications of societal acceptance of same-sex marriage. Hartzler shockingly compared gay marriage, the leading civil rights issue of our time, with the crimes of pedophilia and incest. Here are some of her disgusting remarks:
“[Same-sex marriage] starts you down the road to opening up licensure to basically meaning that a license would mean nothing if you let everybody with that standard. For instance, you know, if you just care about somebody and have a committed relationship, why not allow one man and two women or three women to marry? Why not allow group marriage? There are people out there who want that. Why not allow an uncle to marry his niece? Why not allow a 50-year-old man to marry a 12-year-old girl if they love each other and they are committed? So, pretty soon if you don’t set parameters, you don’t have any parameters at all.”
This is a woman who’s political fortunes have been built on a foundation of bigotry and discrimination. According to Right Wing Watch, Hartzler has fought hard to block the repeal of ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,’ the recently repealed ban on homosexuals serving openly in the US military. She has also been a staunch defender of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), a federal law that defines marriage as a union of one man and one woman. She also spearheaded the successful effort to amend the Missouri constitution to ban same-sex marriage. Hartzler, who believes that homosexuality is a choice, is also opposed to hate crime laws that prosecute those who murder people because of their sexual orientation.
This rabid bigot has twice been elected to public office by the people of the great state of Missouri.
Since Hartzler loves prayer and hates gays so much, here’s a little prayer for her: please, god (I’ll pretend you’re real for just this line), make Vicky Hartzler’s grandchildren turn out to be raging bull dykes or fierce, fabulous queens. Now that would be justice!
