San Antonio Councilwoman Elisa Chan met with her staff in private to talk about how to address a nondiscrimination ordinance. She wanted to find a way to talk about gay people that would indicate her distaste for them without actually speaking against them, because, much to her consternation, gay people are for some reason considered human these days. She and her staff talked openly about how much they dislike gay people (“it’s against nature!”) and how much they wish homosexual sex was still illegal. They talked very freely about all this. After all, it was private, right?
Except, no. One of the staffers recorded the session and released it to the press. The recording is embedded below. I’m warning you, it’s pretty disheartening to listen to idiots like this in 2013. But it’s also enlightening to see what they’re really saying when they think nobody’s listening. Conservatives in this country still have a long way to go.
