South Carolina Lawmakers Incensed Because They Are Gay
Guess who's paying for this daring piece of Gay Travel advertising? The taxpayers of South Carolina! Yukyukyuk...
This ad was put together by the gay advertising company "Out Now" as part of its "So Gay" campaign, an "an effort launched in London, England... to lure homosexual tourists to South Carolina and five U.S. cities." This is about as dangerous a ploy as luring Muslim travelers to, well, South Carolina, or luring Jewish travelers to... South Carolina. South Carolina is not very diverse, and every time it gets mildly diverse they basically lynch the diversity away.
But as South Carolina's Palmetto Scoop has learned, the state's own Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism is using a chunk of its $14 million annual budget to help fund the "So Gay" campaign, including this delightfully gay ad.
Cue the South Carolinian Republicans getting upset:
- State Republican Rep. Greg Delleny: "It’s simply unbelievable that PRT would be using our tax money to promote the homosexual lifestyle."
- State Republican Sen. David Thomas: "South Carolina is a wonderful, family friendly destination not a Southern version of San Francisco. This campaign goes against our core values."
Thomas and Delleny have allegedly pledged to kill one Negro family for every thousand spent on the San Francisco-style gay advertisements.
