Tom Cotton Tells US Gays: Be Thankful You're Not Being Hanged, Cuz That's What They Do To Homos in Iran!
Tom Cotton (You know, the guy who went behind the US president's back and cozied up to a foreign government to tell them not to trust America -- that Tom Cotton.) Well he seems to be obsessed with all things Iranian, and not just a little bit envious over how they treat their gays:
"But I also think it's important that we have a sense of perspective about our priorities. In Iran, they hang you for the crime of being gay."
So, you gay homo-Americans! Quit yer complaining about not being treated equally under the law! If you lived in Iran or any other Muslim country, you'd be dead!
I wonder, Tommy, how those Muslim countries treat people who sneak behind their leaders' backs to give aid and comfort to foreign countries negotiating with them? Hmmmm.
I think Tommy would be missing a head, wouldn't he.
From the Daily Kos:
"Cotton is impatient and angry that he's being asked to talk about something as unimportant as equality in America when the only issue he thinks anyone should be talking about, ever, at all, is how we can start a war with Iran. And his way to work the conversation back around to where he thinks it should be is to say, roughly, "shut up and be grateful we're not executing you." Classy, classy guy."
