Alzheimer's?

From Gerry Milligan...I cannot think of any other answer to Pat Robertson's assertion that "Black Lives Matter" is trying to lead ‘lesbian’ and ‘Marxist’ revolution. Where do these right-wingers get their ideas?

By spinning and twisting the truth until it is broken. Basically any time a group in the US asks for something that is good for the whole society it is tagged as being socialist or Marxist. And, there is a single statement in the BLM website that holds up support for families that do not fit the nuclear definition of family. So, that has been twisted into the idea the BLM hates families, is anti-marriage, or is specifically promoting LGBTQ+ relationships.

The nut job Pat Robertson obviously thinks LGBTQ+ have super powers. He has blamed them for hurricanes, 911, and a number of other things in society he doesn't like.

Basically Robertson's vision of America is a white run country where anyone who is different is a second class citizen or ostracized. Fundamentalism has its roots in segregationism and white supremacy.

Pat is always suggesting something bad that happens is because of gay people.

Using Pat's own logic, the US elected an immoral unethical man as president and now we are in the middle of a plague. Using Robertson's logic then clearly evangelicals who support Trump have brought Covid-19 on us as God's judgment. Do I believe that? Of course not! But it makes as much sense as the idea that BLM is some kind of lesbian Marxist conspiracy.

Actually, it makes more sense than Pat does.
