Craaaaazy: Top Virginia GOP Advisor Shares His, er, Views on Homosexuality


    Ben “NLS” Tribbett breaks the news on his Facebook page about a rabidly anti-gay bigot who’s a leading Virginia GOP operative (e.g., he lists himself as a “Senior Advisor” to Dave Brat in 2014) named Steve Waters. Shocker that he’s a Republican political operative (Keith Fimian, E.W. Jackson, George Allen, and the others Ben lists) huh? By the way, one of this guy’s Facebook posts rants about a “rainbow flag flying over the U.S. Embassy in Israel.” Here’s what Waters thinks of that:

    Would Obama fly the Christian Flag? I doubt not! Purely evil and utterly disgusting as to what Presidential Leadership is in 2014 in the United States of America. George Washington and other GREAT Presidents are rolling in their graves in disgust!… Would Obama fly the Christian Flag? I doubt not! Purely evil and utterly disgusting as to what Presidential Leadership is in 2014 in the United States of America. George Washington and other GREAT Presidents are rolling in their graves in disgust!

    Now, he’s back on his favorite theme, the supposed evils of homosexuality, with his latest: “Is it normal for adult males to have to wear diapers because their rectal muscles have been abused so badly they can no longer control or tighten them to avoid pooping in their pants?” Also: “I will say this, if homosexuality is so normal, how come the diseases, illnesses and cancers connected with it are so abnormal. Even the CDC recognizes this.”

    UPDATE: This is great, the guy actually goes on Ben’s Facebook page to try and defend himself. He claims: “I’ve got history, natural law and biology on my side on this one. What do you guys have, emotion. You should know emotion doesn’t work well in public policy.” Also hilarious: “I love seeing mean-spirited liberals lose their cool in a debate and all they can do is show people the huge gaps in their tolerance, or lack there of.” He then adds: “I don’t have a problem with homosexuals, I have an issue with them wanting to pervert marriage and tell pastors what they can preach. The good thing is y’all have over stepped on this one with the bi-sexual/transgender side. The American people aren’t ready for that, nor kissing cousins wanting to marry.” Also: “Logic, good one. A man putting part of his anatomy where ‘poop’ comes out of. Yep, that’s love alright.” And this: “Anything I say is going to be regarded as “hate” by you guys so I won’t even try. I’ll say this, you guys use the hate word so often it loses its effectiveness. Like I said, you want to get screwed up the rear as a man, that’s your business, but don’t try and force society to have to accept it. There’s no precedent for your claim. Natural law buddies, have a good one. I’m so glad we had this opportunity to discuss this. If you are on this thread and happen to be a lesbian or gay guy, I wish you well and please take care of yourself and don’t dismiss this stuff without consulting your physician. This is pretty serious stuff. I love you all! Goodnight and God Bless!”

      LOL!!!!!!!!!  Has it really come to this?

      The guy is a moron and many in Brat’s district believe the same thing and are going to send Brat to Congress.

      Ben needs to start attracting a better class of people to his Facebook page.  

      And Lowell, you are much better than this type of “sewage” blogging.  This is like National Enquirer BS.

      Anyone here know what the Christian flag looks like. I’ve been a Christian for nigh on to 77 years and I don’t recall ever seeing one.

    • Today, senior Virginia GOP adviser Steve Waters unleashed a barrage of unacceptable, offensive and wholly inappropriate attacks on LGBT individuals.  Waters has worked for and advised a wide range of Virginia Republicans, including U.S. Senator George Allen, Delegate Bob Marshall, and current Congressional candidate David Brat. In light of his hateful behavior, the Democratic Party of Virginia released a statement from State Senator Donald McEachin:

      “Senselessly attacking a group of people like this is far beyond unacceptable and cannot go without repercussion,” said Senator Donald McEachin. “His open hatred for LGBT individuals bizarrely coupled with blatantly false medical claims has no place in Virginia discourse. Given the progress Virginia has made in recent months towards inclusion and equality, it would be unacceptable for Republicans to allow such ignorant behavior to set the Commonwealth back. Republican leadership and all Virginia Republicans, many of whom have relied on Steve Waters’ guidance, should condemn his actions immediately.”

      This guy is so rich with idiocy. He fails the fool test, kinda dumb and donna get things right away, is masters the idiot test (and not the medieval one).  How many people can screw up copying, almost verbatim, the idiotic statements of the professional homophobes?  Only those who are in on the “facts”, who happen to be professional homophobes such as Tribbet, can do it.

      The true believers who are tuned in to “daddy in the shower” Dobbs, and Paul Camroon, are able to find the right channel.  This guy is a big idiot and one who deserves to join the other homophobes in the breakroom.
