Ok this is funny. As far as I can tell this guy is just saying what he thinks is true but you can’t even say what he said without getting in trouble.
From the Hill:
A city lawmaker in New York is refusing to apologize for saying that the city government is “controlled by the homosexual community.”
Bronx city council member Ruben Diaz Sr., described as a conservative Democrat, made the comment while speaking on the Spanish-language radio program, “El Desahogo,” last week, according to The New York Daily News.
City Council Speaker Corey Johnson, who is gay, and others called for Diaz to apologize over the comment.
“The disgraceful and homophobic comments made by Ruben Diaz Sr. don’t reflect this city’s values,” New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) tweeted on Saturday. “The council member owes an apology to @NYCSpeakerCoJo and 8.6 million New Yorkers.”
Lol notice he’s not saying that what he said was false, only that you can’t say that out loud!!
He’s not backing down either:
What’s homophobic about saying that the gay community controls the nyc city council ? I’m giving them credit for the power and influence they have.— Rev Ruben Diaz (@revrubendiaz) February 9, 2019
