TN State Senator

Homosexuality Is Dangerous

020113_senator_tmzlive_launch
Tennessee State Senator Stacey Campfield (R-Knoxville) has a message to the gay community -- stop ramming the gay agenda "down everybody's throats" and leave the straight people alone!!!

Sen. Campfield just called in to "TMZ Live" to talk about the strongly-worded email he sent to a pro-gay voter ... who had objected to a bill Campfield recently reintroduced to the Tennessee General Assembly.

During the call, Campfield insists he doesn't hate gay people -- he just doesn't believe students from kindergarten through 8th grade should discuss ANYTHING gay related.

Among the highlights:
-- Campfield says the people in the gay rights community are "the biggest bullies in the world."

-- Campfield says comparing the gay rights movement to the African American civil rights movement is "insulting to the civil rights movement of the black people."

-- Campfield says he wishes the gay community would just leave the straight people alone ... saying, "We don't wanna hear about it every day ... quit trying to ram it down everybody's throats ... and quit pushing it on everyone. Just leave us alone."

Some people in the newsroom disagreed with the State Senator's views ... check out the video.

FCUK YOU, HARVEY. You couldn't address this man and call him out on his statements and then his backtracking when he called into live. You'll now pull the same crap you did with Culliver, all high and mighty and screaming to the heavens because no one is there to defend themselves. I should've known you'd pull this. If you all at TMZ in the Gay community felt so strongly you should have had an intelligent debate, instead you wait until after the phone call and call him out on what he said. PATHETIC. I'm so disappointed in you guys.

I don't really care what the newsroom has to say. TMZ staffers have as much credibility as a wet fart.

And Republicans wonder why they continue to lose election after election. Unreal. This is why I became an Independent.

He is just ensuring that one of his kids will be gay.......and I may be going out on a limb here.........but, I'll bet 100 bucks the senator has had at least one **** in his mouth in the past.

Gays aren't the biggest bullies in our society, the taxpayer funded feminist entities and bureaucrats are the biggest bullies, using government power to rip families apart through the family courts and through every possible media source.
But gay people are human and therefore capable of being selfish and bullying, no more or no less than heterosexual people.

The biggest bullies are Obama's leftist socialists. The gays aren't trying to raise your taxes, take your jobs or destroy the constitution. If you leave them alone, they will leave you alone.

He's right. Everything in this world is either fake, false flags, all white or all gay.
