Sebastian Gorka, a former national security official in the Trump White House, had an angry meltdown on his Salem Radio program this week over an LGBT wedding depicted in the PBS cartoon “Arthur.”
The Washington Post reports that Gorka was triggered by a recent episode of the show in which Arthur’s teacher, Nigel Ratburn, married Patrick, a local chocolate shop owner.
“This is a war for our culture, and that’s why we exist here, on ‘America First,’ on the Salem Radio Network,” Gorka said.
Gorka then went on to claim that the marriage depicted on “Arthur” was part of an insidious left-wing plot that stretched all the way back to the French Revolution and that was responsible for former President Barack Obama’s rise to the White House.
“Civil society doesn’t exist, friendship doesn’t exist, family doesn’t exist,” Gorka said of the ideology behind the episode. “Only permanent revolution.”
Gorka went on to say that he was particularly upset at the show because it’s one that his children used to enjoy watching.
“My children used to watch ‘Arthur’ 15 years ago, about a rodent-like creature that lived and had fun in his cartoon world,” Gorka said. “The new season of ‘Arthur’ will have one of Arthur’s teachers at school, a male teacher, married to a fellow male rodent.”
