Scott Esk (R-OK) – ‘GOP Moron of the Day’

Via: Raw Story

1

A magazine editor in Oklahoma was putting together candidate information for a feature when a friend alerted him to online comments posted last year by a candidate for state representative.

“This guy posted on Facebook that homosexuals should be stoned to death,” said Rob Morris, who published the Moore Monthly and MooreDaily.com. “My first response was, ‘You’re nuts, nobody would be stupid enough to do that.’”

But Scott Esk, a Tea Party Republican and John Birch Society member, did exactly that – repeatedly.

The GOP candidate responded to a post on Pope Francis saying “who am I to judge?” on homosexuality by posting numerous Old Testament quotations prescribing capital punishment for LGBT people.

Another commenter asked, “So just to be clear, you think we should execute homosexuals (presumably by stoning)?”

“I think we would be totally in the right to do it,” Esk said. “That goes against some parts of libertarianism, I realize, and I’m largely libertarian, but ignoring as a nation things that are worthy of death is very remiss.”
