Goat Killer endorses idea that homosexuals are killing black people

by: Eric B.

Wed Mar 12, 2014 at 10:03:13 AM EDT


Ken Braun, political columnist for MLive, writes about Goat Killer's latest Facebook post.

An ‘event horizon’ is the spot near a collapsing star where gravity becomes so intense even light cannot escape. Dave Agema, Michigan’s Republican National Committeeman, serves a similar purpose. He captures ridiculous statements flying within his orbit of paranoia and sucks them down as his own.

I would substitute "stupid" for "ridiculous," but that's splitting hairs. Let's see what he's on about.

Last Wednesday, (activist Stacy) Swimp posted an online essay entitled: “Genocide: Homosexuals Systematically Killing Black Americans.” The original post later disappeared, then reappeared with an incendiary new title: “Genocide Alert: Homosexuality Systematically Killing Black Americans!”

“Good article Stacy,” chimed in Agema with a March 6 Facebook post referencing Swimp’s original title. “I wonder how Ken Braun of the Grand Rapids press [sic] will spin this to serve his agenda!”

Briefly summarized, Swimp presents statistics showing gay men having a higher incidence of HIV infection and mixes this with additional unfortunate statistics regarding HIV and African Americans. With this, Swimp proclaims the “homosexual agenda” can “rightly be identified as genocidal against Black Americans.”

Braun writes that Swimp goes on to claim that this lazy correllation is proof positive of "systematic genocide" of black people by homosexuals.

At this point, there's no need to revisit Goat Killer's greatest hits because they're fresh in memory. All we need to do is point out that since the Republican Party refuses to get rid of him as a national committeeman for saying these incredibly stupid, narrow-minded things that he speaks for all of them.

Dave Agema, official spokesperson for the Michigan Republican Party, believes that homosexuals are committing acts of genocide against black people. And with that, we give you yet another successful launch of a Republican Party minority outreach campaign.

I'm only now imagining the kind of implosion Agema will have when the judge makes a ruling on that Detroit marriage and adoption case, next week.  Hopefully, it will be epic.

It's so funny that Agema has shown time and time again his only reason for wanting to be elected to office was not to govern, but to troll the electorate.  I don't think he gives two sh%ts if he's eventually forced out of his post, but he's going to make his party work for it, no doubt.  He must have been a terror as a child and teenager, and absolute terror.  I would have liked to see it come sooner than later, but when karma puts him in his place, it's going to put him there with a vengence.


Keep talking, Dave. (4.00 / 1)
Every time he opens his mouth, he creates new Democrats. My twenty-something daughters and their friends are absolutely disgusted by this kind of shit.

How's that rebranding going? (0.00 / 0)
Let's see here:

1. Dave Agema does this.

2. Paul Ryan called "inner city" people "lazy." (It's pretty clear what he meant by "inner city.")

3. Many congressional Republicans are opposing immigration reform. (To think that 44% of Latinos voted for W!)

4. They're trying to control women's bodies.

5. They want young people to have lots of debt but no jobs.

So Reince/Bobby/Saul/etc.: How's that whole rebranding thing going?
