Infamous anti-gay pastor and activist, Scott Lively who was recently accused of crimes against humanity in Uganda and is author of the rabidly anti-gay book titled the Pink Swastika which claims that the most ferocious German Nazi soldiers were homosexuals, announced Friday that he will run as a Republican in Massachusetts’ 2018 gubernatorial contest, setting up a primary fight against incumbent Gov. Charlie Baker.
Calling the governor a “Republican-in-name-only,” Lively contended that Baker has hurt conservative values, legislated as a “de-facto big government pro-abortion Democrat” and “plundered the treasury of the Republican Party to wage war on conservatives.”
Further, Lively argued, the incumbent governor “has presided over a sizable drop in Republican enrollments — on track to transforming the Grand Old Party into his own personal nest of corrupt patronage and croneyism that will represent less than 10 percent of the electorate by 2020.”
“Somebody needs to stop Charles Baker before he completely destroys the Republican Party and its foundation of principled conservatism that is the only real hope for restoring Massachusetts to its former strength and health,” he said in a statement. “I think that person is Scott Lively.”
In August of 2013, in response to anti-LGBT legislation in Russia, Lively wrote an open letter addressed to Vladimir Putin saying, “You have set an example of moral leadership that has shamed the governments of Western Europe and North America and inspired the peoples of the world.”
What a fucking Masshole.
