Tea Party honcho Rick Scarborough, never one to mince words or thoughts, believes that it’s fruitful to explore a class action lawsuit against gays — not for imagined deeds, but for simply being gay.

In a broadcast conversation with lamented LGBT anti-activist Peter LaBarbera, Scarborough felt out the verdant possibilities:

“Peter, the whole issue of a class action lawsuit, you and I have talked about this a little bit. I just wonder if you’ve explored that, talked to anyone about it.”

Riffing further on the manifest evil of homosexuality, the intellectual heavyweights opined thusly:

Scarborough: “Homosexuality much more likely leads to AIDS than smoking leads to cancer. And yet the entire nation has rejected smoking, billions of dollars are put into a trust fund to help cancer victims and the tobacco industry was held accountable for that.”

LaBarbera: “Yeah, I think [a class-action lawsuit is] great. I would love to see it. We always wanted to see one of the kids in high school who was counseled by the official school counselor to just be gay, then he comes down with HIV. But we never really got the client for that.”

Apart from the disjointed narrative flow, one can’t help but conclude that these august thought-leaders are dead serious.
