GOP North Carolina Attorney General Nominee Tells Haters: Fight Hard To Keep Our State Straight [VIDEO]

From the Huffington Post:

If state Sen. Buck Newton (R) has his way, North Carolina will be known as the “straight” state. “Go home, tell your friends and family who had to work today what this is all about and how hard we must fight to keep our state straight,” Newton said at a rally Monday, according to video posted by Progress North Carolina Action.

Newton, the Republican nominee for attorney general in the state, said Monday that supporters of the law have to be vigilant and keep their “wives and our sisters and our children” from being exposed “to the sexual predators in the bathrooms.”

Current AG Roy Cooper is running to unseat Gov. Pat McCrory. Former state Sen. Josh Stein is the Democratic nominee to succeed Cooper.

  • Bryan

    Keep flapping your gums, Newton.

  • coram nobis

    Sen. Newton? The laundry called and said your bedsheets are ready. With extra starch so they’ll be nice and straight when you wear them.

  • well, there’s no need for nuanced reading there, eh?

    similar to “keep our state white!”

    btw, what protections will be offered for at-risk transgender youth? oh, right. none.

    “keep our State straight”……. i mean, you can’t make this shit up.

    • HadenoughBS

      Oh, I’m sure, Little Kiwi, if he failed to mention “white” it was huge oversight on this hate-mongering GOPer’s part (not to mention meaning “Protestant” and “KKK-lover”, too).

    • Gustav2

      Gee, do you think the law had nothing to do with restrooms? How could that be?

      • B Snow

        How old is that photo?!?

    • Schlukitz

      Well, folks, I guess that we can be glad that the anti-gay animus is right out there in the open now where everyone can see it. It don’t get no plainer than this!

      http://www.joemygod.com/2016/04/26/gop-north-carolina-attorney-general-nominee-tells-haters-we-must-fight-to-keep-our-state-straight-video/

      In the beginning, the mantra was:

      “Love the sinner. Hate the sin.”

      When LGBT people sought the same civil rights and protections that the Christians enjoy, the mantra changed to:

      “We don’t have anything against the gays. We just don’t want them changing the Christian definition of marriage.”

      When same-sex marriage became the law of the land last summer, the mantra changed yet once again.

      “Keep our state straight.”

      My first question is: Where did all that Christian love disappear to?

      My second question is (and the one that terrifies me the most): What do they intend to do with all the LGBT children that are born from here on out?

      Is there pending legislation to deal with that “problem” as well?

      • Well, their LGBT children tend to either flee to other states. Or congregate in Charlotte. Or hang themselves.

        • Schlukitz

          Let us fervently hope that very few LGBT children resort to the last tragic option. 🙁

          • Librarykid

            Support the TREVOR PROJECT.

      • Christopher Smith

        Might actually persuade the good XTIANS they like abortion after all………
        *sardonic smile*

      • Librarykid

        You are assuming there is Christian love for all. It is more like the key to the executive washroom, something closely guarded by those who have it and not to be lent to those not privileged to have it. The Church is tribalism triumphant and the apotheosis of the good ole boys club.

  • Too bad he doesn’t realize what productive members of society we are. I’ll just keep my 155 IQ and six figure salary in the north where it belongs.

    • WORD!
      they also seem to think that being bigoted will mean none will have transgender, or gay, daughters. i mean….having these beliefs doesn’t ensure you a straight cisgender child……
      they seem to forget that we LGBT people were once, you know, children.

      • Todd20036

        They think that transgenderism and even homosexuality are simply choices.
        Why we gays would instantly turn straight as soon as our dicks touch a lady’s private parts.
        And transgendered undergo hormone therapy and surgery just so they can go into the opposing restroom.
        I’ll keep my government job in DC and never move any further south in retirement.
        Hell, even Florida is off limits until they grow up.

        • what was that joke? “that there are gay people in alabama proves it’s not a choice” LOL

          • Todd20036

            Indeed. Personally I don’t think it’s a choice that gays remain in Alabama. Any gay person there would leave if he/she could, I would bet

            They have no choice, but to stay there.

          • Librarykid

            Sadly true.

        • Rocco Gibraltar

          Did you really say “even Florida?”

          • Todd20036

            Florida has Key West and Ft. Lauderdale, but as of now, it’s government is very dysfunctional.

        • rusty57

          As someone whose dick has touched lady parts, repeatedly, I feel I must tell you it fails as a form of conversion therapy.

          I still would rather my dick touch gentleman parts.

          • Gianni

            I can agree with that. In my young years, I had a time of having my dick touch the lady parts, after all, it was the one sure way to not be gay. I quickly realized that I, of course, loved the feeling on my dick and, at that time, anything sexual was exciting and arousing. However, the fact remained that there was absolutely nothing about the female body that turned me on. It was sex for release even though I genuinely liked my partners. Thankfully, I had the mental wherewithal to realize that this was not what I wanted or needed. It was men for me.

          • David Walker

            When I was in high school back in the Dark Ages and dated owing to societal pressures (not really, but the parents expected it), I had a really easy time getting girl dates because word made the rounds that I was non-threatening. You know, movie or play, pizza afterwords, and home without any rumpled blouses. By senior year, though, it was far more interesting to get drunk with the boys. I don’t know why, but there you are.

          • Christopher Smith

            Which is why all the good ones are gay, David. GRIN

        • Reality.Bites

          She said Californy is the place to be
          So Todd load up the truck and moved out from DC.

          Hill’s, that is. 😉

        • Christopher Smith

          PARTICULARLY Florida, Todd. Home of election fraud and theft, Jeb! , Rubio, Mobster Rick, and oh so many other atrocities…..

        • Librarykid

          YUP. I decided that a long time ago. I don’t even want to travel through hateful, bigoted states, not that there are not some wonderful people there, but I do not want to support the civilization.

      • Yeah but we were the bad kids that god hates and has punished, their kids are immune from gods wrath.

        • Todd20036

          Meanwhile, this bad boy is the only child in my family with a funded retirement and no money issues.

          Even my twin sister, whom I thought was so empathic, is contemplating asking our mother for her inheritance now so she can buy a house. She’s married with a kid, I should add

          Mother is 77 and in fairly weak health.

          This is all kinds of wrong.

          Meanwhile, I’ve never had to ask any parent for my money my entire adult life.

          And yet gay people are immoral and damned.

          • KCMC

            I love you. For correct use of empathic. And so much more.

          • Reality.Bites

            And yet you make me pay $100 for your used jockstraps.

            Shipping and handling my ass!

          • David Walker

            I understand why he would handle your ass, but why ship it?

          • Christopher Smith

            No, no, no, David. Just the jockstraps…….:P

          • Schlukitz

            Proving yet once again, it’s not what you say…but how you say it. 😉

          • Threaten your sis that you’ll go to court to have your mom declared incompetent to handle her own finances in order to protect them for your mom; and if it comes to it follow through. Sis sounds like a right piece of work…

          • NancyP

            Yes, unless your mother is really rich, at 77 she needs to keep a buffer of money for those health services not covered by Medicare. It’s amazing how much a full service nursing home for advanced Alzheimer’s disease costs. It’s amazing how relatively little it can cost to keep a frail mobility-restricted person in their home (visiting nurse, aides).

            Sis needs to concentrate on economizing, and buying whatever home she can afford, or if she has the stomach for it, buying a four-flat and renting the other units for income.

    • Frankly darling they don’t want people with IQs of 155 in North Carolina, they’d much prefer 90 and below. Less intelligent people are so much more maleable. They’ll think what ever you tell them to.

    • Wynter Marie Starr

      Beyond that, where does he think LGBT people come from???

      • Well duh, we recruit them in bathrooms, sheesh, you new here?!? 😉

        • Wynter Marie Starr

          Huh, and here I’m one of those idiots who think people are born along a spectrum of sexuality. I’ve been hit on by a few women, but never in the bathroom. Guess we’re all too busy peeing.

          • Lolz 🙂

          • witch

            The only thing that happened to me in a restroom stall was another person asking to pass some toilet paper, gads I hate it when done you find no paper

          • Wynter Marie Starr

            Yeah, that’s happened to me a time or two as well. The worst that’s ever happened to me was finding a filthy toilet. DId these idiot ever wonder why women in groups tend to go to the bathroom together? It has zero to do with transwomen and plenty to do with straight cis men.

          • Christopher Smith

            Having been TOLD that by women doing that very thing, yes indeed.

          • Schlukitz

            Always remember to bring a ten-spot with you when you go to a public restroom.

            That way, if the stall next to you is also out of toilet paper, you can always ask the occupant of that stall if they have change of a ten.

          • Christopher Smith

            Well, WM, get with the program. I mean, it sounds like you never even heard of *foot tapping under the stall*?!? 🙂

          • Wynter Marie Starr

            LOL. I’m not sure women do that. I’ve heard that goes on in the mens room, but anytime I’ve ever been in the mens room it’s because the line at the ladies was too long and I needed to use the bathroom.

            Honestly, if I ever did see foot tapping, I wouldn’t think the woman in the stall next to me was after sex. Not that I’ve ever seen such foot tapping.

          • Schlukitz

            Or multi-tasking. Hee he

      • Schlukitz

        A gay stork? 😉

        • Wynter Marie Starr

          The gay cabbage patch!

  • oikos

    Let’s hope the Dem wins this race as well as the Gov’s race.

  • Sam_Handwich

    between presumptive nominee Trump and all this bathroom bullshit, i doubt November will be kind to the NC GOP

    • Blake Jordan

      Haven’t they gerrymandered the state quite heavily, to make it very difficult to get rid of the rethuglican majority in the state legislature?

      • Todd20036

        Even if true, that doesn’t help the Senate nor the governor nor the President.

      • Christopher Smith

        Alas, yes.

  • Dreaming Vertebrate

    Straight State or Hate State? (or both)

  • Dan

    Kind of refreshing to see them come out from behind the “think of the children” smoke screen and be honest.

  • Bad Tom

    Memo to Roy Cooper:
    WE ARE EVERYWHERE!
    And there is NOTHING you can do about that. Nothing.

    • wait….Roy Cooper is on our side.
      or is this /s?

      • Bad Tom

        Twas a silly mistake.

    • FAEN

      Roy Cooper is the Dem that’s against HB 2.

      • Bad Tom

        Ooops.

  • Rex

    Does this clueless fool know that the “sexual predators in the bathrooms” they’re so worried about are straight?

    • Todd20036

      like a certain ex House Speaker?

      • customartist

        The one that used the Right restroom?

        • David Walker

          The senator who tap danced in the men’s room?

    • Gest2016

      Do they realize that 99% of child molestation is by heterosexual fathers. And 100% of abandoned children are the product of heterosexual unions.

      • David Walker

        Yes, but it doesn’t fit their narrative, so it’s not worth mentioning.

  • Mark Neé Fuzz

    Now make up your mind. Do you want to protect your wives and daughters from sexual predators, or just get rid of homos? Apples or oranges? Which is it?

    • Chucktech

      Get rid of homos will do just fine, thank you. Especially when anyone with half an un-bigoted brain knows that those wives and daughters are already perfectly safe in the restroom.

      • Nychta

        More blather about protecting women and children, no actual steps to address real dangers. Wives, sisters and children are definitely safer in public restrooms than in their own homes. From the NC Coalition Against Domestic Violence:
        http://www.nccadv.org/get-help/domestic-violence-information#COMMON_MYTHS

        “About 1 in 3 American women have been physically or sexually abused by a husband or boyfriend at some point in their lives. (Commonwealth Fund, Health Concerns Across a Woman’s Lifespan: the Commonwealth Fund 1998 Survey of Women’s Health, 1999)

        “In 1996, 30% of all female murder victims were killed by their husbands or boyfriends. (Federal Bureau of Investigation, 1997)

        “40% to 60% of men who abuse women also abuse children. (American Psychological Association, Violence and the Family, 1996)”

    • Gest2016

      Exactly. What is this about, hating gays or protecting children? I think we all know the answer to that.

  • Judas Peckerwood

    Nazi fuckwit say what?

  • james_from_cambridge

    What is a gay State? Florida?

    • Rex

      With all the pink flamingos, sure.

      • james_from_cambridge

        And that would make Alabama our taint…

        • Rex

          ‘taint gonna argue on that.

          • james_from_cambridge

            Then you’ll also agree that Mississippi is our asshole.

          • Rex

            The smell alone convinced me.

          • james_from_cambridge

            …and I’m spent.

            If that’s the case, then Europe isn’t even hard.

          • customartist

            Not that there is anything wrong with that

    • Blake Jordan

      California and New York?

  • if only we had a critical, independent media that might ask him, “Senator, so what you’re saying is that there are no gay people in your state, and that you want none to move or live there?”

    really, i want someone to make him say that out loud. but we don’t have that kind of press.

    • Chucktech

      “Oh, c’mon, now, George…”

      Even if that’s the stupid shit, no-response response these mythical “journalists” might receive, any otherwise disinterested viewer would look at that and say “Ha! George nailed him!”

    • Mark Neé Fuzz

      Our media are much too busy with more important issues, such as keeping up with the latest antics of those vapid Whoredashians.

    • Wynter Marie Starr

      As far as I’m concerned, he did just say that. He forgot to add straight allies, however. I’m sure he thinks straight allies are evil as well.

      • Six Pins Delores

        “I’m sure he thinks straight allies are evil as well.”

        I adore our evil straight allies

        • Herald

          Thank you!

        • Wynter Marie Starr

          Well, thank you as I’m one of those evil straight allies. I’m very proud of the fact that a homophobe once called me the Devil’s Handmaiden. I’ve taken that would be insult and I wear it proudly. When my kids act up, I remind them just who they are dealing with, LOL. (Just kidding, my kids, while not perfect are really nice.)

          • Six Pins Delores

            You are welcome and the world could use more evil straight alies such as yourself and their lovely offspring

  • Is there any polling data on this race?

  • RealityBass

    I’ve been to North Carolina, and the men I had sex with there were probably not straight.

  • Rex

    Give it time, he’s gonna say by saying “Straight” he didn’t mean “not gay” but like “on the straight and narrow” or some similar bullshit.

    • Mark Neé Fuzz

      Nope. He meant straight. Period. These laws have always been anti-gay backlash regardless of the spin.

      • Rex

        You know that, I know that – but these guys have backpedaling down to a science.

        • m_lp_ql_m

    Are these guys even aware of the message they’re sending to the world?

    • sfbob

      I’d say ‘no.’ One might have expected this sort of openly stated bigotry fifty or sixty years ago but now? The message appears to be “See how out of touch we are? We still think it’s 1960.”

    • geoffalnutt

      They aren’t aware there is one.

    So is he saying he wants to send all LGBT North Carolinians to some other state? Because that’s what it sounds like. How can you “keep” the state “straight” when it never was “straight” in the first place?

    • customartist

      Maybe they can “Build a Wall”

    Dear Senator Newton,

    Your actions will have equal and opposite reactions.

    That is all.

  • geoffalnutt

    First ‘The Straight State’, then The Straight White State’…then ‘The Straight White Christian State’. It’s really just “The Hate State’.

  • Sean Taylor

    oh for god’s sake

  • Blake Jordan

    If you remove the “non-straights” from the state, the over all “goodness” of the people in the state will decrease noticeably.

  • Richard B

    ewwww…Sen. Buck Newton used to served as an aide to Senator Jesse Helms on the Foreign Relations Committee in the U.S. Senate.
    We have a lot of work to do in this inbred corner of the country.

    “… fight hard to keep our state straight.” and our men’s rooms for real men on the d/l.

  • Gaymurcan

    Straight supremacists: more comfy in Russia.

  • Duh-David

    But I thought it was all about protecting the children in public rest rooms. So what he’s saying is it really is about hating gays?

    • Yup. Always was. Never was anything else. Only with HB 2 they tipped their hand: They want to make ALL forms of discrimination legal again.

  • billbear1961

    So, what’s next, you monumental JACKASS, a law that says you can’t LIVE in NC if you’re LGBT?!

    I would no longer put ANYTHING past these goddamned Nazi CRETINS!!

    Go to HELL, “Senator”!!

    FUCK you AND your FASCISM!!

    The Rule of LAW shall be UPHELD unless true DEMOCRACY in this country perishes!!

    You lay your soiled, hateful hands on the Constitution of the United States at your PERIL!!

  • So this is the face of the new anti-LGBT bigotry. LGBT supposedly equals sexual predator again, the same old blood libel from a decade ago.

      • Christopher Smith

        “And certainly not all at ONCE.”

    • MickinDetroit

      my thoughts exactly… these things seem to follow a script.

    • I am confident we do not want to know what kind of porn this guy collects.

      • David

        Considering what this guy is obsessed with…. Yes, we absolutely positively do NOT what to know what this dude is into.

      • TrollopeReader

        XHamster declined to return phone messages this afternoon …

  • j.martindale

    It was all the incentive I needed to make a contribution to Josh Stein’s election campaign. North Carolina doesn’t belong to this bigot. It is not his to make “straight.” I am a taxpayer, and I am insulted by this homophobia.

  • Blake Jordan

    The federal government should step in and save North Carolinians from their governor, state legislature…

    • oikos

      We have to vote for that to happen and so do the people of NC.

  • justmeeeee

    Your state is already quite bent, Buck-o!

  • FAEN

    You’re correct Sen Newton-how can you or your party POSSIBLY fix our crumbling infrastructure, make sure our environmental laws are being followed etc while gay people like me are running around being gay.

    • Gustav2

      As long as Duke energy can operate all is right with the world!

      • FAEN

        McBigot’s lips are still surgically attached to Duke Energy’s ass.

    • TrollopeReader

      They (NC legislature) won’t allow the coastal communities to even *plan* for sea-level rise …. seriously.

      • FAEN

        Oh yeah I know. Elections have consequences. Hopefully we can get the legislature back to the Dems sooner than later.

  • Mark

    Last I heard the gay baby gene is carried by straight parents. What the fuck, Buck?

    • TrollopeReader

      Obviously those parents need to be … sent away ….

      • Mark

        Or maybe he’ll just kill the babies….

        • TrollopeReader

          probably best to do the parents, so it doesn’t happen again.

  • TrollopeReader

    He’s a nice man…… I wonder if “keep the state straight” (2016) is similar to “keep the state white” (c 1964) … ??

    • billbear1961

      VERY similar!!

    • Craig Howell

      “Make North Carolina Mississippi Again.”

  • So wait…if they’re claiming that these are just men putting on dresses in order to molest/rape women in restrooms, wouldn’t that by definition classify those men as straight?

    I’m so confused. RWNJ “logic” hurts my brain.

    • Gianni

      Applying the word ‘logic’ to their juvenile attempts at thinking only makes the pain worse.

    • Friday

      Yep, look what it already did to *theirs.*

  • D. J.

    The US needs to start a major expansion of mental health centers. Look how long it took for NC to rid itself of Jessie Helms. He’d still be yammering if he was still breathing.

  • CCleverly

    Ignorance and animus much?!?

    V O T E to keep ignorant people out of office.

    • Blake Jordan

      Hopefully statements like this showing HB2 is about animus towards LGBT+s will help greatly in federal court!!!

  • These guys need to come with laugh tracks.

    Note to whats-is-name: North Carolina is no straighter than any other state.

  • Gianni

    From all the bathroom blather flying out of the blowholes of these assoles, one would believe that police blotters across the nation are overflowing with complaints of women/girls having been attacked/molested in ladies’ rooms by “men in dresses”. It’s too ludicrous to even fathom, yet, the right-wing fanatics and the usual assortment of republican dodos buy it hook, line, and sinker. This lie is worth votes to these hateful politicians.

    • TrollopeReader

      as some in law enforcement mentioned after this was passed ….there is no “crime” to arrest for in the bill, and they were befuddled (their word) as to how to enforce HB2 ….

      • Gianni

        Exactly. Law enforcement have to be shaking their heads having been legally saddled with somehow trying to prevent a non-existent crime. They’ll just have to wait for someone to call them and report an incident. I have a feeling it will be a long wait.

  • RainbowPhoenix

    Well, it’s nice to see people admitting that the only reason for these bills is to make us unwelcome.

  • Mark

    You KNOW that is a face that has scene a glory hole or two…..

  • TrollopeReader

    WK Kellogg foundation cancels Asheville conference (500 people) costing $1.5 million (The New Civil Rights blog) … was to have been year #1 of a 7 year deal ….

  • Dave in Boston

    “Buck Newton” is obviously a contrived name. “Fig Newton” would have been better, and better for your digestive tract and subsequent “movements.” That’s what he’s selling isn’t it? A load of crap.

    • Christopher Smith

      Hmmmm. Wonder if he could be marketed as a laxative–or an emetic…

  • Gianni

    Perhaps that will be the new state motto: NC, The Straight State. Will make a lovely, welcoming billboard as one crosses the state line into NC: Welcome To NC, The Straight State (No bathroom fears here, ladies).

  • SoCalGal20

    Just heard on the radio during my lunch break that the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors just voted 4-1 to ban travel to NC and MS! 🙂

    Mike Antonovich was the no vote.

  • swirl

    I would say he means “straight” as “correct” but knowing how these people think, he means in a sexual sense.

  • Randy503

    Oh, that should attract all the millenials!

  • Up next a new NC bill mandating the ouster of all LGBT citizens. Allowing businesses and homes and personal property of LGBT folks to be allocated to the state.

    • Friday

      Too socialist. It’ll be to the churches.

    • TrollopeReader

      wasn’t there a NC “pastor” that wanted us all rounded up, fenced in, and then we’d be the “last” of lgbt’s in the state?

      • Hmm, sounds scarily familiar! I think you’re right, sadly enough.

      • Curieux Bleu

        “Pastor” Charles Worley: Build a 100 mile long pen for all the rounded up gay men with electrified fence and drop some food over the top. A separate pen for the Lesbians. Pretty soon they’ll all die because they cannot reproduce.
        :
        Apparently the problem of LGBT would be solved for good in his
        (un-Godly) opinion.

  • Cuberly

    Ah, ok then. Well I see their atheist recruitment efforts are proceeding according to plan.

  • Friday

    Well, let’s remind this candidate that just like for him personally, if your state has to ‘fight hard’ and be ‘ever-vigilant’ to ‘stay straight,’ …you ain’t.

  • Gil

    Straight? As opposed to what, crooked?

  • WhiteJesus

    Douche Newton

  • Ninja0980

    No animus there folks, none at all.

  • Wynter Marie Starr

    No worries, jackass. You can be as straight and stupid as y’all like. A couple more years and you’ll have nothing but inbred hillbillies. This straight woman would never step foot in the state again.

    • TrollopeReader

      wait a sec …. you mean there are some that aren’t inbred hillbillies?

  • Cosmo Tupper

    Oh, you mean like Iran?

  • bkmn

    They (the GOP) don’t care bathe good of the country.

  • j.martindale
  • Paul

    This makes me absolutely sick. I wonder if this will be on the Evening news or discussed inv the mainstream media. I feel so sorry for the good people of North Carolina who do not subscribe to that vile hatred.

  • You see, people, this is what happens when you cut mental healthcare budgets.

  • Bob Conti

    Who knew that these idiot Republicans would push my formerly staunch Republican father/North Carolina voter, into voting for Democrats?

    • TuuxKabin

      Hmmmm, don’t cha’ think you may have had a lil’ influence as well? Askin’ for a friend.

  • John

    So, if this nut gets elected, is he going to start rounding up gays for the camps?

  • Friday

    Got Misfits covers on ukelele, now all I need is a mai tai and maybe some naughty spells to work on. 🙂

  • Christopher

    Some people will never learn.

  • Schlukitz

    WTF? Are we in some sort of time-warp?

    I can’t tell if we are in 1930s anti-Semetic, Nazi Germany or racist, 1950s America?

  • TrollopeReader

    Yet another open-minded politician who blocks people and comments on FB. Keeping his staff busy, as there are lots and lots of negative posts ….

  • Wow! Once they achieve this feat of eliminating the entire LGBTQ population, perhaps they can work toward being the Christian (not including those Papists!) state, followed by becoming the White State – and last, once it is all Straight, Christian and White, they will attract all the “best” organizations for their international headquarters – the KKK, Focus on the Family. ADF, FRC, NOM, and the rest of the bigot groups, as corporate America (excluding Hobby Lobby and Chick Fil’A) moves elsewhere.
