Alan Keyes Goes Off And Disses Cheney's Daughter!

Thu Sep 02, 2004 8:19 am

Alan Keyes unleashed a ruthless attack on Vice Pres. Dick Cheney's daughter. He called homosexuality a selfish, hedonistic sin and went further by calling Cheney's daughter, a selfish hedonistic sinner. Keyes also asked that Cheney stop using his name as a national symbol of Republican tolerance.


Hmmm... they just couldn't hold it together for just one more day! It's bad enough that Madison Square Garden has more protesters than delegates! Now this! I'm sure there's more to come....

Hold your horses!

Alan Keyes was NOT at the convention. He said this in a radio interview.
http://news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/ap/20040901/ap_on_el_pr/cvn_keyes_cheney_s_daughter_2

The question was posed to him on a radio station that has a gay audience. Keyes stated his opinion and then repeated it when he was questioned specifically about Cheney's daughter. He didn't change his opinion when asked to narrow it down to one person.

The whole thing that Patrick Guerrero says in his quote (he's exec. director of the Log Cabin Republicans) is based on a false premise: that Keyes went out of his way to attack Mary Cheney. In fact, Keyes was responding to a question that was raised by the radio interviewer. It is the interviewer who was responsible for bringing up Mary Cheney.

I think Alan Keyes is right. Why is it a problem? We have freedom of speech..

Quoted from Merriam Webster Dictionary:

Main Entry: he·do·nism
Pronunciation: 'hE-d&n-"i-z&m
Function: noun
Etymology: Greek hEdonE pleasure; akin to Greek hEdys sweet -- more at SWEET
1 : the doctrine that pleasure or happiness is the sole or chief good in life
2 : a way of life based on or suggesting the principles of hedonism
- he·do·nist /-d&n-ist/ noun
- he·do·nis·tic /"hE-d&n-'is-tik/ adjective
- he·do·nis·ti·cal·ly /-ti-k(&-)lE/ adverb

Main Entry: egoistic hedonism
Function: noun
: the ethical theory that achieving one's own happiness is the proper goal of all conduct

Keyes is saying that the goal of homosexuality is to acheive one's own happiness with no regard for a higher good. In view of Biblical prohibitions against homosexual behavior, I agree.

In view of Biblical prohibitions...

Well in line with Biblical prohibitions you should be stoned to death for eating shellfish (shrimp/lobster/crab) and women wearing pants.... you agree with that too?

Or is it just a sex thing that gets your dander up?

BN747:
I got that email yesterday from a friend. I thought it was funny. Big grin

He called homosexuality a selfish, hedonistic sin
Hell I am a heterosexual and I am selfish, hedonistic and proud sinner!  Laugh out loud
I look forward to going to hell. I’ll pick up plenty of beer on my way down for all to enjoy! Big grin



Kl911:
No one here is debating freedom of speech here. I am glad he said it. Keyes is comic relief. Keyes is a smart man but studied the wrong books and no one takes him seriously. Keyes knows he doesn't stand a chance against Barack Obama so he's going to pick on Mary Cheney instead.

Keyes is a good boy for the Republican Party. Tap dancing at the convention would have been too obvious so he entertains us this way instead.
Maybe he’ll sing a song for us after he loses.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

An ultra conservative African American....what's wrong with this picture? He's not even invited to the GOP convention?

Keyes is going to lose in a LANDSLIDE to Obama whatever his name is...and I'll bet a lot of IL Republicans will either sit out the race altogether or vote for Obama.
And the winner for best actress is....REESE WITHERSPOON for 'Walk the Line'!!!!!!!!

Invited??? After doing what he just did... don't be surprised if sudden 'Tax Evasion Charges appear, or 'charges of improper use of campaign funds' ..but Cheney's not gonna let that slide...

He'd better unfuck himself and he'd better do it fast!

I live in Illinois. Keyes has become an object of ridicule among Republicans, not to mention the rest of the electorate. People are looking forward to the debates as mere farce at this point. My prediction: Obama 75% Keyes 16% others 9%

Re Keyes not being at the RNC - I saw him on BBC World being interviewed inside Madison Square Gardens last night. At least I'm pretty sure it was him - he seemed like a total fascist, and said many scathing things about someone called Obama, so it probably was.

If he tried to attend the GOP convention, they would have handcuffed him again and arrested him just as the GOP did to him in 1996 when he tried to invite himself to the debates with Bob Dole, Buchanan and Forbes.






Alan Keyes wants to scrap Senate elections and go back to the days when Senators were appointed. Yet he is running for Senate?
This guy is a nut!  Wow!

When Zell Miller goes looney, the far right says he's telling the truth. When Alan Keyes goes looney, they suddenly shut up.

A vote for Bush is clearly a vote against freedom. Homosexuals are simply not equal to hetrosexuals, in Bush's view. Then again, this is the same nut who thinks 'the jury is still out on evolution'.

Dear Republicans,

Can you please trot out Alan Keyes against every Democratic contender?

Thanks!
The Democrats

PS Now loving someone and wanting to share your life with them is called "Hedonism!" Fundies sure do have a screw loose somewhere. Best to take either the head out of the ass or the bible and enter the real world.

Two things....

1 Dammit if I am not once again on common ground with BN747 (this must be twice now). Cheney is correct in his conservative view that it is not the governments business what happens in the bedroom between consenting adults.

2 Alan Keyes is our own extremist, jus tlike the DEms have with their own strident hardliners. He is not helping the inage of the party with centrists, but then again Moore is not helping the Dems with the centrists. Everyone has their albatrosses.

JGPH1A
He was speaking about his opponent in the Illinois senate race, Obama Barak. Keyes offered himslef up after the Illinois Republicans self destructed in their efforts to replace their retiring senator. Their original candidate is probably the only guy in history to have to drop out of a race because he was involved in a sex scandal WITH HIS OWN WIFE. (evidently he asked her to have sex in a bathroom of a nightclub in Paris and to have a threeway with a stripper....Damnit to Hell..I am pretty sure I should NEVER run for office).
