The Hoover Institution Harbors Bigots

Back in July, Dinesh D'Souza wrote one of the most preposterous and ridiculous blog posts I have ever seen.  Not only does it conflate homosexuality with pedophilia (when in fact most pedophiles are heterosexual), but it also implies that if gays and lesbians were in the military, there would be rampant and out-of-control orgies. Oh, yeah, he also seemed to think that the loss of a few American LGBT soldiers wouldn't be much of a loss at all.

Some of the better quotes: 

What happens when an all-male organization like the Catholic clergy allows homosexuality to become institutionally entrenched? The answer is organizational and moral chaos. The priests start hitting on the altar boys.
He noted that if the American military gets soundly whipped in a future engagement, we could always laugh off the defeat and say, 'Well, yeah, but you only beat a bunch of gays.”

The Hoover Institution is a right-wing think tank based at Stanford here in the Bay Area.  It pays D'Souza for this drivel.  Hoover is very much part and parcel of the University. You cannot separate the two. In other words, Stanford harbors people who think LGBT soldiers are disposable. More (and contact info) over the flip.

D'Souza was eventually forced to apologize, but he claimed that these remarks were supposed to be funny. So, what, he's going to be more careful in the future? Oh, so it was funny to imply that all gays are pedophiles in waiting? Or was it funny that a few gay folks were killed.  Which one was supposed to be funny?
