Robin Hayes clarifies his 'real Americans' remarks with gay bashing
Rep. Robin Hayes (R-NC08), after his campaign was caught in a flat-out lie over his comments at a rally that “liberals hate real Americans that work and achieve and believe in God” that happened to be recorded, finally decided to issue a “clarification”, saying his comments “came out wrong.”
And lo and behold, the homo-hate came spilling out as well. Matt Comer at QNotes:
He said he was trying to draw a distinction on the differences between liberals and conservatives but admitted his comments were not the right way to do it. In addressing his statements at the rally, Hayes attacked LGBT families.
“As a conservative, I fight for lower taxes and policies that strengthen our values,” Hayes said in the written statement. “Liberals are advocating higher taxes, which I believe punish success – and they are advocating policies like gay marriage that I feel undermine strong families.”
The hard working families of the 8th District and our nation deserve a commitment to education, economic opportunity, civil rights, personal freedoms and the safe, clean environment that we all want for our families.
We’ve had enough of the nonsense from the incumbent aristocracy in DC that has proven they’d rather wedge us apart than bring us together. It’s time for an honest debate on Real Family Values.
