Thursday, Todd Starnes attempts to use the Roanoke tragedy to advance his anti-gay agenda. Todd Starnes is an idiot.

Starnes writes:

There were no headlines reading “Gay Black Man Guns Down White Heterosexual Reporters.” There were no calls to ban the rainbow flag. No presidential speeches or Civil Rights marches.

A black man killing white people because of the color of their skin — that’s not a narrative they wants to talk about. Because in their world — that’s not a hate crime.

Aside from the fact that there is no evidence that the two reporters were gunned down because of their skin color, white people are not a protected minority.
