NY State Rep. Yvette Clarke Honors Jamacian Gay Murder Music Performer Beenie Man

 U.S. Representative Yvette Clarke who has an outstanding LGBT voting record seems to be a bit clueless when it comes to anti-gay Jamaican reggae murder music. 

At last weeks  Reggae Rhythm and Blues Festival in Queens,  New York’s she welcomed and  honored gay hate performer Beenie Man (whose lyrics include:  “I’m dreaming of a new Jamaica, come to execute all the gays”) by saying to him  “We welcome you back to the United States of America… We honor you. You have been an outstanding performer and you have made all Jamaicans proud.”

Yvette you need a better aides and a better research staff and you also need to issue an apology immediately.
