Gov. Dannel Malloy from Connecticut cuts to the chase:
Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy (D) on Tuesday described Indiana Gov. Mike Pence (R) as a “bigot” and said that politicians have a responsibility to speak out against Indiana’s divisive religious freedom law.
Pence is “not a stupid man, but he’s done stupid things,” Malloy said during an interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “And signing this law — and quite frankly promoting this law, knowing exactly what it was going to do — was an incredibly stupid thing for him to do.”
“When you see a bigot, you have to call them on it,” he said.
Later in the segment, Malloy said Pence made his intentions clear when he signed the bill into law flanked by “three homophobic men who have made it a part of their business to make gay people as miserable as possible.”
More of this. There’s no reason to play around with these homophobes in 2015. Call them what they are. I don’t give a shit what Clinton signed 3 decades ago, the 1st Amendment is all the protection from religious persecution that anyone needs. You need more, write an amendment to the Constitution.
I’m so old I remember when Muslim cab drivers refusing service because of alcohol was a big deal for Republicans.
