Sandy Rios, Fox News contributor and certifiable loon, has suggested that the sexuality of Brandon Bastion, the engineer of the Amtrak train that derailed in Philadelphia earlier this week, was “a factor” in the crash.
Oh, yes she did.
But let’s be clear, this is nothing new for Rios, who is also the governmental affairs director at the anti-gay hate group, the American Family Association, made the claims on her radio show:
“I’m not inferring that this accident happened because he was gay, but I do think it’s an interesting part of the story and you can bet it would be edited out. I think it’s a factor and I doubt you will hear it anywhere else.”
She’s not saying it’s a factor but she wants everyone to know he was gay because, well, gay people want to kill straight people and especially Christians, so maybe this train accident was the first part of our Evil Plan to destroy anyone who isn’t gay; or something.
Rios then said Bastion, who says he no recollection of the crash, might have been “going through some confusion that has to do with the very core of who they are”:
“Someone I know who worked for a very large airline started taking hormone shots and put his entire plane at risk because he had an emotional, angry outburst to something that happened.”
So, again, she isn’t saying this happened because he’s gay, and she isn’t saying he was taking hormone shots, but she is saying that this could be the case because she’s a pandering, lying, asshatted, bigot.
And the ISBL Asshat of the Week.
