 “I just did what I felt I had to do as a human being.”

VIDEO: “We got a Queer Running For President.” – Sevier County Commissioner Warren Hurst

Below is video of Sevier County Commissioner Warren Hurst’s homophobic, bigoted outburst at their meeting Monday night. Only one person got up and left. The rest laughed.

Homophobia aside, it’s amazing that a white man sitting on a panel of white men can feel like white men are losing rights.

Hurst stood by his words afterwards, according to WLVT. Sevier County is where Dolly Parton hails from.

NEW: “We got a QUEER running for President… the white man has very few rights.”

Watch @SevierCounty Commissioner Warren Hurst’s homophobic, bigoted outburst Monday, telling folks to “wake up”.
