New York city councilman won’t apologize for saying chamber is controlled by ‘homosexual community’

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.”

But Diaz has declined to do so, tweeting, "what’s homophobic about saying that the gay community controls the city council?"

"I’m giving them credit for the power and influence they have," he added...…

Yes, indeed. How is it hate speech?

I was under the impression, apparently erroneous, that the gays consider themselves a positive influence, or at least a benign one, so how's this any difference than saying some other legislative body is controlled by brown-eyed people, or people with round faces, or people with red hair, if that in fact is the case?

By protesting, the gays themselves are making it sound as if it's a bad thing, as if they're a menace.

2. I must repeat, if the gays consider themselves good people,

why is this a slur? It's after all saying the city council's run by good people.

3. Don't the gays want that control?

But if they have it then they lose their victim status.

What a quandary.

4. ".....What a quandary....."

We got a member here from Colorado, who brags about how his state is now run by the gay special interests, from the governor on down.

Although not gay himself, he apparently thinks gays are the best thing since sliced bread.

But if one suggests his state is run by gays, he gets upset, as if there's something bad about it.

6. Why does every whack job have to apologize?

Geez, how can you live outraged all the time? So what if he thinks the council is controlled by gays? Lots of people believe in green energy, I don't ask them to apologize.
