The author of the so-called “Don’t Say Gay Bill” said Tuesday that homosexuality was “very dangerous” and compared it to injecting heroin.
During an tense interview with TMZ, Tennessee state Sen. Stacy Campfield (R) said homosexuality was dangerous because of HIV/AIDS.
“The homosexual community gets AIDS at a 50 times higher rate than the heterosexual community,” he claimed. Campfield said AIDS was such large problem in Africa because sodomy was more prevalent in that part of the world. He added that sodomy was a “deadly thing to do.”
Campfield’s proposed law would prohibit pre-K through eight-grade students from being taught any material that was “inconsistent with natural human reproduction,” such as homosexuality. He said the issue was inappropriate for children.
Near the end of the interview, Campfield was asked why schools shouldn’t teach young homosexual students how to protect themselves from HIV.
“You know, you could say the same thing about kids who are shooting heroin,” he replied. “We need to show them the best ways to shoot up. No, we don’t. Why do we have to hypersexualize little children? Why can’t we just let little kids be little kids for a while?”

Trump’s ex-election security official attacks Giuliani for ‘apparent attempt to undermine confidence in the election’
President Donald Trump and his legal crew of misfit attorneys have waged 39 lawsuits to overturn the 2020 election. All but one of them has been laughed out of court. Trump and his attorney, Rudy Giuliani, have continued going to court in an attempt to get a legal challenge to the U.S. Supreme Court. Trump also fired his cybersecurity czar responsible for securing the election after refusing to corroborate the story that the election was stolen.
In an interview with "60 Minutes," Chris Krebs, former director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, explained that Giuliani and Trump are apparently attempting "to undermine confidence in the election, to confuse people, to scare people.”
‘Failed incumbent’ Trump is being ignored now that his ‘mystique is gone’: Ex-GOPer Dave Jolly
Former Republican Rep. David Jolly explained that there are two problems outgoing President Donald Trump is facing: First, he is resting comfortably in his own house of denial, but second, his advisers aren't doing their jobs in walking him through his lack of options to steal the 2020 election.
"None of those advisers will actually go to work for Donald Trump," said Jolly. "Consider just among the legal community the number of reputable lawmakers that said we won't have a meritless claim because their reputation is on the line as well."
He recalled all of the times Trump bragged that he would hire "all the best people" for the White House and cabinet.
‘Pathetic’ Trump ridiculed by MSNBC guest for latest attention-grabbing stunts: ‘He’s the Republicans’ problem’ now
Appearing on MSNBC's "AM Joy" with host Maria Teresa Kumar, conservative Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin ridiculed Donald Trump for whining about his election loss and making plans to disrupt President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration in January, saying the president can't stand not being the center of attention.
Asked about the president wanting to possibly hold a rally on Biden's swearing-in day, Rubin labeled the president as "pathetic."
"I think it's somewhat ridiculous and it's also a good test for the media, frankly," Rubin responded. "There is absolutely no bigger story than the inauguration of Joe Biden and no one should cover Trump's [ inaudible]. This is pathetic -- jumping up and down, 'me, me, me.'"
