Great Moments in GOP Rebranding: RNC’s Dave Agema Says He Doesn’t Hate Gays, but They’re Destroying America
Right Wing Watch has video of Republican National Committee official Dave Agema on conservative talk radio, helpfully explaining that he has absolutely nothing against gays, you know, personally. He just thinks they’re destroying the world. Even Switzerland.
The former Michigan state legislator said on The Renegade River Show that gay rights weaken the family “and when you start destroying the family unit in a nation, the nation starts to crumble from within.”
“Look at the Greek empire, look at the Roman empire,” Agema continued. “Basically, I am trying to protect America.”
He also maintained that schools are “teaching the homosexual lifestyle, how to be a homosexual in some sort of class that they’re teaching that we’re paying for,” and argued that gay marriage had major repercussions in Denmark, Netherlands and Switzerland (a country that has not legalized gay marriage).
