Adulterous GOP NY gov. candidate Paladino attacks gays for ‘targeting children’, says gays are ‘dysfunctional’ – oh, and he has a love-child

UPDATE: He has a love-child?  What a freaking hypocritical ass.

Great thing to say when we’re in the middle of a gay youth suicide epidemic, you bigoted ass.

“We must stop pandering to the pornographers and the perverts [he pronounces the word "per-VERTS"] who seek to target our children and destroy their lives. I didn’t march in the gay parade this year -the gay pride parade this year. My opponent did. And that’s not the example we should be showing our children…

“And don’t misquote me as wanting to hurt homosexual people in any way. That would be a dastardly lie. My approach is ‘live and let live.’ I just think my children and your children would be much better off and much more successful getting married and raising and raising a family, and I don’t want them brainwashed into thinking that homosexuality is an equally valid and successful option – it isn’t.”

And his prepared remarks also said the following, per the NYT:

“There is nothing to be proud of in being a dysfunctional homosexual.” But Mr. Paladino omitted that statement when he gave the speech.

NY’s GOP gubernatorial candidiate Carl Paladino: gays are dysfunctional

I can usually muster something pithy with a little tact when it comes to garbage like this, but I’m cramping like a mother so I’ll just say to Mr. Paladino: “f*ck you too.” Gay City News:

Paladino, an attorney and Buffalo real estate developer, met with Jewish leaders in the Brooklyn neighborhoods of Boro Park and Williamsburg on October 10.

During the Williamsburg appearance, a journalist from WNYC Radio reported that Paladino said, “I just think my children and your children would be much better off and much more successful getting married and raising a family, and I don’t want them brainwashed into thinking that homosexuality is an equally valid and successful option. It isn’t.”

The Daily News reported that Paladino said, “I didn’t march in the gay pride parade this year. My opponent did. There is nothing to be proud of in being a dysfunctional homosexual. That’s not how God created us, and that’s not the example that we should be showing our children, and certainly not in our schools.”

Andr?s Duque at Blabbeando has more details, including video.

First came a Tweet from journalist Azi Paybarah about four hours ago:

In williamsburg speech, @CarlPaladino says: “I don’t want [kids] brainwashed into thinking homosexuality is an equal valid…option” #nygov

Then the video Azi posted on his YouTube page to back up his Tweet (above)

Apparently, according to Capital Tonight’s Liz Benjamin, upset at being snubbed by a number of Hasidic Jewish leaders today, Paladino spent the day with ultra-homophobic Rabbi Yehuda Levin, and didn’t mince words.

I’ve not been following this race closely, but does he have a chance in hell of getting elected or are New Yorkers losing their grip on reality?

Since Carl has made headlines for forwarding bestiality pornography it begs the question, is bestiality something we should be showing our children, oh, keeper of good, American values?

Carl Paladino: Children Shouldn’t Be Brainwashed Into Homosexuality

Teabagger lunatic and New York GOP gubernatorial candidate Carl “Imprison The Poor” Paladino today said, “I just think my children and your children would be much better off and much more successful getting married and raising a family, and I don’t want them brainwashed into thinking that homosexuality is an equally valid and successful option–it isn’t. There is nothing to be proud of in being a dysfunctional homosexual. That is not how God created us.”

Paladino was touring Orthodox Jewish neighborhoods in Brooklyn where he made the remark, also saying to at least one group that he would veto a same-sex marriage bill as governor. A spokesman for Attorney General Andrew Cuomo, Paladino’s opponent, immediately fired out this reaction: “Mr. Paladino’s statement displays a stunning homophobia and a glaring disregard for basic equality. These comments along with other views he has espoused make it clear that he is way out of the mainstream and is unfit to represent New York.”

RELATED: Speaking of brainwashing, Carl Paladino has been a fucking hero to the homocons over at Hillbuzz. Wanna bet today’s asshattery doesn’t change their tune a bit?

Teabagger Carl Paladino To New York Post Reporter: I’ll Take You OUT Buddy!

Teabagger loon Carl Paladino got into a heated shouting match with a New York Post reporter yesterday after the reporter demanded to see evidence that Attorney General Andrew Cuomo has been cheating on his wife, as Paladino has begun to claim. Paladino, as we know, has a ten year-old daughter from his own adulterous affair with an employee.

After Dicker asked Paladino what evidence he had to make accusations to Maghabe at Politico that Democratic gubernatorial frontrunner Andrew Cuomo had cheated on his ex -wife, Blain reports, Paladino turned the tables, assailing Dicker over the Post’s coverage of the daughter he fathered a decade ago with a woman other than his wife. “I want to know why you sent your goons after my daughter, Fred,” Paladino demanded. “You send another goon to my daughter’s house and I’ll take you out, buddy!” Paladino also raised the issue of Cuomo’s former marriage in a Newsday report this morning, saying he wanted the media to “go after Cuomo and his paramours” but, again, offering no evidence of what he was talking about. Paladino’s campaign manager, Michael Caputo, separated the two men and sent his candidate into the men’s room to calm down. Then, Caputo accused Dicker of working for Cuomo and doing his dirty work, so to speak. At one point, Blain says, Paladino cursed Dicker, saying, “F— him!”

Here’s a grainy clip of the altercation. New York, baby.

Carl Paladino Vs. Joy Behar

“Joy Behar should be absolutely ashamed of herself for referring to Carl’s daughter as illegimate. She’s a child and does not deserve that kind of treatment from a woman who should know better. That’s catty, it’s pissy and strikes of something that someone would say when suffering from a sudden hot flash. The only person here who’s illegimate is Joy Behar’s hairstylist. Joy is off Carl Paladino’s christmas card list.” – The Paladino campaign responding to Behar’s mention of his ten year-old love child on The View.

Paladino supports “traditional marriage” – the kind in which you adulterously fuck your employee, have a baby with her, then not tell your wife about it for ten years.

NEW YORK: Teabagger Gov Candidate Carl Paladino Sends Out Stinky Mailer

Tea Party candidate for New York governor Carl Paladino has sent voters a mailer that stinks. Literally. Via the New York Times:

“Help Carl Paladino turn Albany upside down and take out the trash!” the mailer concludes. The mailer may be a bit much for some. Even before you open it, you notice an odor, according to a reporter who tested the mailer at Mr. Paladino’s campaign headquarters in Buffalo. It isn’t awful at first. Garlic or onions? Or maybe cloves or really bad perfume? But after a few minutes, the smell gets worse and worse, and eventually, you realize that it smells like a landfill. That is not a coincidence; the smell was “captured,” technically speaking, at a landfill, according to the campaign.

The latest poll shows Paladino tied with GOP candidate Rick Lazio. New York’s primary is tomorrow.

Joe. My. God.
