Rachel Maddow Interviews David Bahati
Author of the anti-gay bill in Uganda, a bill which includes execution for certain “offenses”.
Of course, he repeats the meme that foreign (read: American) influences are recruiting Ugandan children into homosexuality. This is a conspiracy theory that gets a lot of play in the Ugandan press. Though I do not know where it originated, Rachel observes there is a commonality between Bahati’s rhetoric and historical anti-gay rhetoric in America.
Pretty much all the anti-gay memes fly out here. “It’s for the children”, yuck.
Kudos to Rachel for remaining calm and professional in the face of such backwards thinking.
