Clint McCance facebook page

Clint McCance is a big fan of fishing, God, country and procreation. What he's not a fan of, apparently, is the "fags" and "queers". The Arkansas school board member (I'll pause while you let out a whimper) is saying what so many others want to say but can't. Unfortunately, he's giving voice to a deep-seated hatred for people living lives he does not relate to.

Last night, he posted a rant on his Facebook page that lit up the internet:

"Seriously they want me to wear purple because five queers killed themselves. The only way im wearin it for them is if they all commit suicide. I cant believe the people of this world have gotten this stupid. We are honoring the fact that they sinned and killed thereselves because of their sin. REALLY PEOPLE."

"...being a fag doesn't give you the right to ruin the rest of our lives. If you get easily offended by being called a fag then dont tell anyone you are a fag. Keep that shit to yourself. I dont care how people decide to live their lives. They dont bother me if they keep it to thereselves. It pisses me off though that we make a special purple fag day for them. I like that fags cant procreate. I also enjoy the fact that they often give each other aids and die. If you arent against it, you might as well be for it."  [Advocate]

Apparently, asking people to wear purple in tribute to a bunch of young people who saw no hope for their lives is ruining Mr. McCance's life.

One way of looking at this is to say point out that he's just a lowly school board member and that there are probably far worse people in far more powerful positions across the country and that those are the people we should be publicly shaming and, hopefully, removing from power. Another way of looking at it is to say we have to seek these people out wherever they are and to stop them from impressing negativity and hate on children, no matter how "small time" that hate is.

Just because a bigot got elected to a school board (a school board, for crying out loud), doesn't mean the bigot is capable of reason or empathy.

I wouldn't usually suggest this, but this man needs to be harassed until he leaves his seat on the school board. God forbid there might be a !gay! kid in that school district. The last thing they need to hear is that they should be committing suicide.

If Mr McCance doesn't care about how people live their lives, why is he so angry about how people live their lives? I'd hate to see how he would react to something he genuinely cares about.

Yes, there is absolutely nothing gay about sitting in a boat from the crack of dawn in the middle of lake with a bunch of other guys playing with with your rod and getting drunk. This is not homophobia, this is self loathing.

Based on your magnificent spelling and grammar, I'm just going to naturally assume that you're probably an uneducated moron that buys "Tap Out" shirts and plays Xbox with your "bros". Grow a brain. Do you think wearing pink ribbons for breast cancer is something we should ban because there are people dying of brain tumors? Should we not have Black History Month because there's not a Mexican History Month or an Asian History Month? We honor those poor teens because they COMMITTED SUICIDE based on the way society treated them.

And yes, it is OKAY for men to "fuck" each other. Just like it's okay for you to sleep with that (most likely) fat bitch you call a wife (if you even have one, which I doubt) and spawn another fucking catastrophe to this earth. It is disrespectful to mankind for people like you to exist. How can you compare drug addiction and homosexuality? Men having sex with children is not HOMOSEXUALITY you dumb fuck. That's called PERVERSION. Gay teens kill themselves because of PEOPLE LIKE YOU who don't take the time to understand, but would rather bash them because in your mind, "They're just a bunch of fags."

Why am I even attempting to have a logical conversation with you? Go open a can of Keystone and watch the Fishing Network.

Leaving the bigoted opinion out of it, how did someone who doesn't know the proper use of English get elected to a board of education in the first place? There is no such word as thereselves! It's themselves. Please elect educated people to educate your children!

And speaking of education and bigots - why is it that the other bigot posting on this page (FUCKTHEFAGS) can't spell either (or use punctuation apparently)? Anyone see a link between basic education/knowledge and compassion here besides me? Just wondering....

Ok this guy is a huge jerk but does it bother anyone that a school board member is using words like...wearin and thereselves!!!!! Stupid opinion aside he can't even spell... thereselves is not even a word and wearin... enough said!! If the school board sounds like this imagine the district!!! Let the gay kids leave they will get a better education in a different district!!!
