Samuel "Joe the Plumber" the Unlicensed Contractor, Tax Cheat, and Non-Business-Owning Small Business Owner Wurzelbacher Needs to Add "Bigot" to His Name

From Reverent & Free: R&F Retraction
I'd like to retract something I wrote about Samuel "Joe The Plumber" Wurzelbacher last October.

Me : "...I'm sure he's a swell guy."

I was wrong. He's a fucking bigot.

This has been a R&F Retraction.
Oh Craig, surely you're overreacting, it can't possibly be that b-
Q: In the last month, same-sex marriage has become legal in Iowa and Vermont. What do you think about same-sex marriage at a state level?

JTP: At a state level, it's up to them. I don't want it to be a federal thing. I personally still think it's wrong. People don't understand the dictionary--it's called queer. Queer means strange and unusual. It's not like a slur, like you would call a white person a honky or something like that. You know, God is pretty explicit in what we're supposed to do--what man and woman are for. Now, at the same time, we're supposed to love everybody and accept people, and preach against the sins. I've had some friends that are actually homosexual. And, I mean, they know where I stand, and they know that I wouldn't have them anywhere near my children.
Samuel, I hereby order you to shut up.
On behalf of America, shut up.
On behalf of those of us who realized your fifteen minutes were up the moment you lied about who you were to ask a lying, loaded question to our current President, shut up.
On behalf of those of us who don't care about Fox Noise's worship of you for being a good little liar, shut up.
On behalf of those who have watched you gain your undeserved fame for your mendacity and willingness to say what the other bigots want you to say, shut up.
But most of all, on behalf of those of us who tire of the hate, the bigotry, and the endless repetition of hateful, harmful lies, shut up.

Samuel Wurzelbacher, shut the hell up.
