Joe the Plumber: I Wouldn’t Let Gay People near My Children

In an interview with Christianity Today, Joe the Plumber first defended calling gay people queers, then he said, “I wouldn’t have them anywhere near my children.” Joe the Plumber has many sides and none of them are good.

Joe was asked about same sex marriage at the state level, “At a state level, it’s up to them. I don’t want it to be a federal thing. I personally still think it’s wrong. People don’t understand the dictionary—it’s called queer. Queer means strange and unusual. It’s not like a slur, like you would call a white person a honky or something like that. You know, God is pretty explicit in what we’re supposed to do—what man and woman are for. Now, at the same time, we’re supposed to love everybody and accept people, and preach against the sins. I’ve had some friends that are actually homosexual. And, I mean, they know where I stand, and they know that I wouldn’t have them anywhere near my children. But at the same time, they’re people, and they’re going to do their thing.”

Joe’s “gay friends” are cool with the fact that he won’t let them near his children? Is he serious? I am going to take a guess here, but don’t think that Joe has ever had any gay friends, or maybe he used to have gay friends, and then he wouldn’t let them near his kids, so they are friends no longer. What’s Joe afraid of? Does he think that homosexuals will rape his children, or maybe they will gay up his kids?

This kind of backwards attitude is reason why the GOP has driven completely off of the cliff. I don’t understand why the GOP keeps putting Joe the non-Plumber out there front and center. Every time this guy appears in the media, it results in another black eye for the Republicans. Joe looks like an uneducated racist homophobe, which some would argue makes him the perfect face for the current Republican Party.

  1. I would not let you near my children. I don’t need them to be around a misinformed bigoted liar.

  2. In addition to not being a plumber, his name is Sam. So maybe we should call him Sam the Homophobe from now on?

  3. ….. that at a minimum 1 of his kids become “queer” and that at least one grandchild from each of his children become “queer.” Karma, Dear Unlicensed Plumber, can be a b*tch.

  4. Perhaps by “gay friends,” he means guys he picked up at the gay bar and took to a motel for the night, where they wouldn’t be anywhere near his kids. I don’t think he’s worried about gay people raping his kids or gaying them up; he’s just afraid they’ll tell ’em what daddy likes to do when he gets drunk…..

  5. “People don’t understand the dictionary”? First of all, Joe, you don’t have a college degree, but I thank you for enlightening us what a definition of the word “queer” is.

    Joe…listen up…you’re depriving a village of an idiot. Run, run, run to that village.

    You are a star struck moran that was plucked out of a ocean of thousands and held up as a model bigot cum average republican joe idiot. Stick to unclogging toilets.

  6. haha fags … think you are so smart and deprived of being human… stop being little titty babies hiding behind that rhetoric of being born that way and whining all the time because your choice brings you pain and sorrow . grow up and be an actual man or actual woman, do you think you are the only people that are persecuted the difference between you and others is that you can help what you are and yet you put yourself through that BS anyway… are you looking for sympathy and attention or are you just hiding behind the shroud of faggetry to mask your weakness of how piece of shit human you are… If you want to to play hypochondriac then play it on the side of being mentally retarded cause apparently its a plague

  7. Perfect standard bearer for the GOP….as much as I want him to vanish, he’s too good for the demise of his party….

  8. Does Joe actually take care of his children? I think he and Sarah Palin are twins who were separated at birth with each getting halk of one brain.

  9. Wow…just wow. Instead of spending your time in your mother’s basement watching porn, playing video games and fellating FOX News, maybe you should pick up a science book or magazine every now and then. Read up about the latest discoveries of the “gay gene.”

    I think it is you who hide behind cuss words and “anonymous” as a way to mask your weakness, cowardice and total uselessness to the human race.

    And lastly, what does hypochondria have anything to do with mental retardation? I swear, when you have nothing to say, you will grab at anything and try to pass your rubbish off as a valid point.

    YOU, are on the verge of mental retardation. How sad for you.

  10. Ah, and there it is.

    When you’ve got nothing of value to offer, you resort to nothing but infantile name calling. That might work if you’re three years old at a playground. But this is adult stuff now, something you are completely incapable of. Keep it up, preschooler.

  11. haha not only did you fall in the trap once but you fell in twice poor ignorant PILLOW BITTER… blind anger is your weakness consider yourself defeated … twice… haha looks like someone else needs to pick up a book once and a while…. but all that to say this YOU SUCK AT LIFE you should probably hide from the world in your little closet of homoness haha oh and in case you didn’t catch it the first time PILLOW BITTER

  12. Looks like Sam/Joe is just another homophobe that has profound (same-gender tendencies! You don’t need Freud to figure this one out people. Where there is smoke there is FIRE and boy this fire is out of control. t As my grandmother once said, Evil thinkers are evil doers!” If Sam’s/Joe’s unconscious tendencies are not homosexually oriented, he is certainly fixated on some sexual perversion(s). Perhaps the children he has been around should be interviewed!!!

  13. @, Your an idiot with a big mouth and dont have the sense god gave a lemon! I dont pretend to know what your persuasions and dont care as long as you dont hurt anybody ! I think idiot, bigots should be persecuted, I think there should be a giant cone of silence, a stupid ball,for people like you, so know one has to hear your verbal diarrhea.Stupidity is encouraged just look at the state america and the worlds in! Why dont you go breed another one, theres not enough people like you in the world you smuck??belief ,fag, homophobe,god, retard,your a real tool and I doubt for you thats a choice !Good luck to you and antone who comes in contact with you———————-plague.

  14. It’s just too funny that in 2008, McCain touted this cretin as the American Everyman. The more he talks publicly, the more he makes a fool of himself. So, how does he determine whether someone is gay, other than those who advertise that fact about themselves unmistakably? Another problem with his comment, other than the fact that it is stupid and homophobic, is that his children will eventually meet countless numbers of people who are racial minorities, Democrats, Independents, gays, and Republicans who don’t fit his mold, unless they are hermetically sealed off from most of America.

    His remarks reflect poorly on him and those who think like him, rather than those he condemns. They reek of some obvious insecurity he has about himself. The end goal of child-rearing is to teach kids to think for themselves and follow a moral code, but he obviously has little confidence in his own ability to do so. If he did, he would be teaching tolerance for differences, among other things and not projecting his own hatred to them. This country is rapidly changing, and he and his ilk are having a difficult time adjusting to that fact.
