ISBL Asshat of the Week: Sandy Rios

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.

When the idiots come out to play...
I always wonder when people say such stupid things if they truly believe it or are saying it for the shock value.

What drug is this woman taking that her brain is reduced to mush? Mind you she works for Fox News so unadulterated trash goes in her ears and comes out her mouth as the same unadulterated trash

I wonder how you select the Asshat of the week. There seem to be so many potential winners. Texas alone must provide you with dozens of candidates each week.

And I say that as someone who grew up (somewhat) in Texas and knows whereof he speaks.

@ Michael Dodd

Yeah, there are a lot to choose from, but generally it's the one ... hee hee the ONE ... that sounds the most like they need to have their mouths taped shut.
