Rush Limbaugh is being criticized for saying Americans won't elect Mayor Pete because he kisses his husband on stage.

It's not a homophobic remark. It's an astute observation.

The president has to deal with world leaders, many of whom despise homosexuality.

Try that with Iran.

I have asked @PeteButtigieg dozen times how can he get nations whose goal is to kill him to respect him. 1/2 countries in world kill homosexuals.
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
Elton John played at Rush鈥檚 wedding...so anyone saying he is homophobic, racist, misogynist etc. is clearly an ignoramus! Also, I don鈥檛 want to see any candidate lip locking on stage...especially when it鈥檚 only for show!
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
I agree. It鈥檚 not homophobic...I don鈥檛 like seeing it either. I鈥檓 not fearful of gays, and I have no hateful feelings towards them, I just don鈥檛 care to see it!
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
Maybe the 95% of the population that is heterosexual agrees with Rush and doesn鈥檛 believe a gay President is what this country truly wants.
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
50 nations in the world are Muslim. Muslims throw homosexuals off buildings. Can you see this guy seriously dealing with the likes of Presidents Putin and Xi? Puhleese, don鈥檛 insult our intelligence with another Manchurian candidate! We are not idiots!

Homosexuality has become something to aspire to. Sexual fluidity is all about switching teams. If the D's can get us to deny our conscience, morals, & values, we've lost.

African, Asian and Middle East leaders and respective communities will run rings around his status. No kidding. 馃槀馃槀馃槀馃槀
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
Sadly we live in a time where making and saying out loud any kind of opinion is considered to be some kind of ism or phobia.
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
Conservatives are regularly accused of bigotry for merely making an astute observation.
 
I agree!!!!!! I DON鈥橳 WANT TO SEE THAT!!! We are in a moral collapse because of the destruction of our values and family!!!!!!! Yes try this in any islamic country!!!!
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
Meanwhile our dopey Prime Minister is over there rubbing elbows and being chummy with Iran's foreign minister. After they killed 57 Canadians.
 
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
Even Barrys husband wore dresses.
 
 
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
It's not just Iran. Many countries, peoples, and cultures find this to be morally repugnant. We've redefined marriage at 5 seconds to midnight on history's clock and we expect everyone else to agree with us before the clock strikes twelve. Really? 馃

Trump doesn鈥檛 kiss Melania on the lips on stage.
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
He wouldn't be able just perform his duties as president these foreign countries do not like homosexuality look at the cruelty they do they will not do business with mayor Pete as president if he cannot conduct foreign policy he cannot do the job.
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
Not just despise, criminalize it with death as punishment. Those are the same regimes that the Dems adore and support.
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
That's not his only problem. He was despised in his own city.
 
I pointed out before that mayor Pete can't exceed at foreign relations given his sexual orientation. Iran would throw him off a building.
He's far too green and inexperienced anyway. Plus his campaign commercials are doctored with inserted false applause.
Just hopeless.
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
First of all Fk Iran, and Fk any other country's moral judgment on what we do here in the United States, including our Second Amendment rights (which often get criticized). Rush's simply questioned Buttigieg's *electability.* And from what I've heard that's all he did.

In reply to @CallingBSonU
I鈥檝e been asking that question all along. Will the Saudi鈥檚 recognize him. The Middle East is a problem for a gay president! Not our bias ... theirs.
 
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
I am sick and tired of folks walking around the issue. There are two political schools of thought: Buttigieg's; and God's. It ain't quantum mechanics.
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
He's right though. Not homophobic just a fact.
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
It's just a reality.we deal with countries who still have laws that kill gays. The world isn't quite ready for that. U.S.A isn't homophobic, the rest of the world is tho, along with some ally countries. They won't take a gay Prez seriously. Facts don't care about feelings
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
The Left loves to label everything as 'racist' ,especially observation.
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
I agree. Many countries still do not recognize LGTB community.
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
That's what I thought too. They aren't going to respect or listen to him. They would rather throw him off the roof.
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
America is not ready for Madam President and the First Gentleman. Try explaining that to your kids.
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
It's a valid point. It's sad when literal observations get hammered bc of political correctness. Right or wrong, point is valid. Is it right Americans might not elect a woman? Absolutely not! Hwvr, it's absolutely right 2 have a conversation about it. That's how dialogue starts.
 
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
"Welcome to Iran, President Pete. Come, the Ayatollah is waiting to meet you in his rooftop residence."
 
He would never be accepted. Our foreign affairs and overseas trade deals but end.
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
God's word in the Bible comes first in my family and many other's feel the same way I do and I'm not going to apologize for being a Christian. It's not normal for two of the same sex to lay with each other. It's starting to be the norm lately but it's WRONG
 
The left hate the truth and facts. (In fact they pretty much hate everything) #GreatAwakening
 
 
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
I keep thinking of places like Iran also. They would have no respect for our President or our country.
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
Very good point...
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
Iran would throw him off a tall building..
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
Try that with any nation in the Middle East and probably Africa and Latin America. It may not be right but it鈥檚 reality, something the Left always struggles to accept.
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
That's a poignant thought I hadn't actually considered. Very true.
 
Americans are extremely compassionate and tolerant of the life choices that some people make but there are many people who feel that some choices, including homosexuality, are simply ABNORMAL and to them the perversion will never be acceptable
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
Those were my exact words this morning!!
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
Same thing applied with Al and Tipper's awkward on stage makeout session... Didn't play well.
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
The left always needs an angle to spin.
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
I said before, we should all chip in and send Buttigieg and his husband on a luxury vacation to Iran 馃嚠馃嚪 They could show them some love.
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
Rush is entitled to his opinion and I happen to agree with it. People need to let people have an opinion it鈥檚 America we are allowed to have an opinion sorry liberals if that bothers you but My opinion is I don鈥檛 give a crap what you think of my opinion
 
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
I agree. But I also found it inappropriate. Keep it to yourself
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
Pete could always hire Schiff as his Sec of State...Iran would love dealing with pencil dick, err, neck.
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
Nobody wants to see that shit
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
These foreign countries would make a COMPLETE mockery of our country! Really! Why are they so dumb, they can't see this?
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
Or Korea Japan Argentina china..... etc
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
Pew Research found that 70% of American`s identify as Christians. Thus, we should have no worries that a Gay candidate will be elected.
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
How many Muslim countries would take a gay president seriously???
 
 
 
My kid and I love the movie Smokey and the bandit but I don't want them seeing a daily routine of Pete and the backdoor bandit kissen on the job America's image reputation is at its worst in Governing and true justice we are in a new era in History and many changes are too come!
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
I haven't seen ANY of our leaders ever being overly affectionate with their significant other... I don't want to see PDA from anyone in a leadership role!! I want them to do their job-not make a damn porno on stage!! Pete is doing this shit for attention
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
I will say this: I don鈥檛 give a flying eff what anyone does in private (home) but the most intimate thing I ever wanna see, in public, is hand-holding. Maybe. I鈥檓 not a prude; I could have ended up in a combat situation when active. 鈥淗ow 鈥榚re鈥, etiquette is still a thing.

In reply to @CallingBSonU
I have tried to make that point. What kind of ME foriegn policy are we going to have if most of those countries would just as soon throw him off a roof as look at him? There are 45 Islamic countries and 50 predominantly Muslim countries in the world. You can write them off.
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
Pete called 63 million president trump voters racist. I could care less his sexual preferences. ...and I鈥檓 not a racist ...so mr and mr buttigeg can both go pack sand ....oops I should probably rephrase that....how about they can both go to H E double 馃彃馃彃
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
It鈥檚 just down right disgusting to me. UN-NATURAL. MY BELIEF. I鈥檒l not judge. God will.
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
The American people are not subject to, not subservient to the bigotry of leaders of other countries.
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
If the Dems nominate Butt a geg, you will see the Bradley effect on steroids. 5-10 million rank and file Dems, who support gay marriage, will draw the mine at the watching POTUS kiss the Forat Gentleman at the Innagural.

God raises Kings and takes Kings away he will not support a persons sin like that
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
Been saying the same thing.
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
I will never vote for Mayor Pete, but it has 0 to do with his sexual orientation & there are LGBT candidates I would support. Other countries don't dictate our leaders - esp when that thinking reeks of small mindedness.

To be fair Obama got away with it for 8 years. Having said that it's most likely because Michael has tits and goes by Michelle HAHA

Good point 馃
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
I never want to explain two little men kissing to my kids.
 
 
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
Its Actually NOT what Rush said tho.
 
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
F anyone that doesn鈥檛 accept people for what they are. I am on the same team but if by chance, Pete is President he is our F鈥檌ng President. Lest we be like the snowflakes I will support our President. We needn鈥檛 worry,Trump will be #46.
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
That ain鈥檛 nothing of what I was thinking.
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
It makes me sick to see. And I'm not homophobic ..Evidenced by the fact that I saw too hot young chicks making out at the park the other day and I was like ...Oh yeeah!
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
 
 
In reply to @CallingBSonU
Yup. Exactly right. The big picture matters.
