This guy’s legitimately nuts.

re: #1 HappyWarrior

I’m just stunned that Kilgore actually thinks anyone would support him and his secession movement, after he said they should be put to death. Does he really think that there are a significant number of gay people living in Texas who hate the federal government so much, that they’d rather live in a country where they could be put to death for being gay? Why would they support him, when if he succeeded in his goal of getting Texas out of the Union, he would turn around and advocate that they be put to death? Why would he think that they would regard the federal government as a bigger enemy than him, since he openly supported putting them to death for their “life style”

It would be like, if Kilgore was a racist, and he said this to a group of black people,

Look I am a white person, I support taking away your right to vote and bringing back segregation, and slavery, but we can debate those issues after Texas secedes from the Union. Right now we have a common enemy

And then expected black Texans to support him in large numbers because the federal government would be so much worse somehow.

Why would gay people support him, if he could succeed, and he and people like him would turn Texas into the equivalent of a North American Uganda?

A Republican, I assume.

Oh Yes! Oh yes he is, and one who is a self parody at that!

Actually come to think of it, the article says this about him,

Under Kilgore’s idea of secession, Texas would be divided into several states. One state could be for gay people. In another, they could be executed.

Okay, that’s only slightly better than we’ll just kill all of you if you’re gay. Still no gay person with half a brain would support him or his cause.

re: #5 CriticalDragon1177

Oh wait, I’m not thinking about the repressed self hating gay people, who refuse to accept the fact that they’re gay to begin with, especially the so called “ex gays.”

Like that bargain wouldn’t turn into a major, fatal betrayal.

I am so glad I do not live in texas, but would it be fun if I did to go to one of Mr. Secede’s campaign events and periodically sigh loudly “you’re such a fuckinliar … zz zzzzz”

The good news there’s practically no way that his campaign is going to succeed anyway.

Adios Texas you’re on your own

One of the “truths” in Texas politics, at least on the conservative side, is that Texas retained the right to secede when it became a state. That isn’t true at all, but what it did have was the right to be split up into several states. Personally, I’m in favor of that, herding the whole lot of them into one of them, and then finding a treaty clause from our war with Mexico that enables us to sell (or heck, just give) that part back to Mexico. Mexico can let them go if they want, but we don’t have to take them back.

Not everyone in Texas is some right wing redneck idiot.

You liberals always think that gay people should vote based on their sexuality, rather than their other interests, Like the log-cabin Republicans, the gay Kilgore supporters just place their economic interests first. Yes, they’ll be stoned to death, but their entire estate will pass to to their heirs without an estate tax taking it and giving it to moochers.

You might want to check on the terms of readmission that Texas, as well as every other Confederate state had to agree to before rejoining the United States after the Civil War.

re: #11 CriticalDragon1177

That’s why I said split it up into multiple parts, and then get rid of the part with all the conservatvies.

re: #14 Norbrook

One problem is, there is no part of the state where all the conservatives live. That’s like saying there’s a part of California where all the Liberals live. Plus I don’t want wingnuts like Larry SECEDE Kilgore to be able to create a society based on what they regard as “biblical principals,” and get away with violating human rights. I don’t want a theocracy that would jail people for not being good “Christians,” on what was once U.S soil. The world is bad enough with all the Islamic theocracies like Iran and Saudi Arabia.

Plus I wouldn’t want to force Americans to move to Mexico, even if we could determine exactly which ones were wingnuts. Things would also be even worse down in Mexico if we managed to send all our far right nuts down there.

re: #14 Norbrook

Oh, and one more thing that I need to point out, not all conservatives are wingnuts. Wingnuts are the far right, and not are conservatives fall into the far right.

Thank you for that. I appreciate it a great deal.

One other thing that bears saying is the Larry Secede Kilgore is not the frontrunner in the Texas Republican gubernatorial primary, Greg Abbott is. Killgore is clearly politically insane, so I’d ask Democrats not to lend him any kind of Operation: CHAOS support. It’s not worth having an easier candidate in the fall if you run the risk of a crazy person being elected. Killgore isn’t just a wingnut, he’s actually dangerous. He’s the kind who’d likely respond to a general election loss with a call for armed insurrection.
