Alabama mayor defiant after he’s caught ranting about ‘killing’ LGBT Americans

Published

on

Mark Chambers, the mayor of Carbon Hill, Alabama, is remaining defiant after he made comments about “killing” LGBT Americans in a recent Facebook rant.

AL.com reports that Chambers recently went off on a social media tirade against gay Americans and “socialists” while lamenting the purported decline of the United States.

“We live in a society where homosexuals lecture us on morals, transvestites lecture us on human biology, baby killers lecture us on human rights and socialists lecture us on economics,” he fumed.

When a Facebook friend of Chambers argued it might “take a revolution” to right the ship, Chambers didn’t disagree.

“The only way to change it would be to kill the problem out,” he replied. “I know it’s bad to say but without killing them out there’s no way to fix it.”

Despite his seeming endorsement of violence, Chambers has told local news station WBRC that he only meant to describe the likely outcome of a second American civil war and wasn’t calling for violence specifically targeting LGBT Americans.

“I never said anything about killing out gays or anything like that,” he said. “If it comes to a revolution in this country both sides of these people will be killed out.”

Chambers has since removed the post from his Facebook page.

Trump thinks he’s still the star of a reality TV show as coronavirus death toll continues to mount: op-ed

Published

This Sunday, President Trump fired off a series of tweets where he bragged about the "ratings hit" of his coronavirus briefings --  a series of tweets that one columnist described as an example of "complete amorality" as doctors, nurses, and other public servants put their lives on the line battling the spiraling pandemic. Writing for The Week this Monday, Joel Mathis contends that as the country reels from being turned upside down, Trump is "looking into a mirror, asking it to assure him that he is the fairest of them all."

Donald Trumps needs a coronavirus scapegoat — and right now it’s China

"If we are at war, who is the enemy?" asks Fred Hiatt, editorial page editor for The Washington Post in a smart piece that examines the question of who constitutes a target for a self-declared "wartime president."

While it is obvious that the enemy, in this case, is a tiny, sticky, invisible microbe that stubbornly gloms onto surfaces or leaps through the air to weaponize subway cars or shared gym equipment or a touch to the face.
