Three time former GOP presidential candidate Alan Keyes is delusional.
On TV a few days ago, Keyes said that he does not believe the shooting in a black church by a white supremacist was racially motivated. Seriously. Despite the statements of witnesses or the fact that the shooter himself published a racist manifesto online. Keyes says that the “storyline” about racism being the motivation for the multiple shooting was “fabricated without much regard for the facts” and attacked people who sought to “play the race card” in the wake of the shooting.
And then he played the gay card. Keyes actually suggested that the shooter was committing a terrorist act on behalf of gay rights and against churches who oppose gay marriage. Keyes speculated that the shooter may have been trying to terrorize people who oppose “the destruction of traditional marriage.”
I know this is hard to believe, but you can watch Keyes say it himself:
Keyes also claims that any animosity he has faced because he is black “pales in comparison to the animosity I have encountered based on my Christian faith”. The only explanation I can come up with is that he faces animosity because he says really stupid and annoying things about his religion. Maybe he should shut up.
