County Official Rants About A 'Queer' Running For President, Loss Of White Men's Rights

A county commissioner in Tennessee launched a tirade against the Democratic presidential field and the general state of white men in America on Monday during a debate about guns. 

Warren Hurst, who sits on the Sevier County Commission, spoke up during a discussion on an upcoming vote to become a gun sanctuary city. He told the crowd, many of whom were holding little American flags, that it was time to “wake up people.”

We got a queer running for president  if that ain’t about as ugly as you can get,” he said, in comments captured by Knoxville-based station WVLT. “Look what we got running for president in the Democratic Party. We can go over here to Hoss’ jail [the Sevier County sheriff] and get better people out of there than those running for [the] Democratic [nomination] to be president of the United States.”

Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, is running in the Democratic primary. If elected, he would be the first openly gay president. His campaign didn’t immediately return a request for comment.

At least one woman objected to Hurst’s remarks and stormed out, but others applauded and agreed with him. 

“I’m not prejudiced, but by golly, a white male in this country has very few rights and they’re getting took more every day,” the commissioner added.

In  a follow-up interview with WVLT , he stood by his comments and noted that he has some Black friends. HuffPost repeatedly attempted to contact Hurst, but his line was busy.

“I’m not prejudiced, but by golly, a white male in this country has very few rights and they’re getting took more every day,” the commissioner added.

Golly he's so literate and polished and diplomatic.  He's quite the wordsmith.  

He should run for president.

Nah, it's ok. I think "they’re getting took" would be the Hillbilly Present Continuous tense.

Maybe he should tell everyone which rights he's had taken away because of homosexuals

Toothless Man: He got a real pretty mouth ain't he?  

They ought to do a remake with Mitch McConnell playing the part of Ned Beatty

People that complain about them queers spend way to much time thinking about it.

They usually have several skeletons in their closet.

a white male in this country has very few rights

White males lost all their "rights'? God, this sounds so much like my family I can't stand it. What they have lost is their status as top dog, though by god, they keep trying.

Oh my, the poor white man has lost all his rights. What a frickin load of BS. The only thing that he's lost is what little intelligence he had.

When you ask these people exactly what rights they have lost , they suddenly become tongue tied or develop amnesia.
