The first-place winner is Clint McCance, a school board member in Arkansas, who wishes all gay people would just do the world a favor and kill themselves:
“Seriously they want me to wear purple because five queers committed suicide. The only way im wearin it for them is if they all commit suicide. I cant believe the people of this world have gotten this stupid. We are honoring the fact that they sinned and killed thereselves because of their sin. REALLY PEOPLE.” (errors his)
There’s a page promoting the firing of McCance on Facebook that also shows where he said he’d run his children off if any of them came out to him as gay. He says they “know better” and have “solid Christian beliefs.”
A close second for the honor of Vile Person of the Day is Tim Profitt, the man who stomped on a woman at a Kentucky Senate debate and is now saying she should apologize to him. What does he expect her to say? “Oh, I’m so sorry, Mr. Profitt, that your goons wrestled me to the ground and my shoulder just happened to find itself under your foot. I didn’t mean for you to give me a concussion.”
You can watch the video at DailyKos and decide who really deserves the apology.
