Alabama mayor defends comments on ‘killing out' gay and transgender people, ‘baby killers'
2019-06-05
[AL.com] Chambers wrote:

"We live in a society where homosexuals lecture us on morals, transvestites lecture us on human biology, baby killers lecture us on human rights and socialists lecture us on economics."

When a Facebook friend replied that they "hate to think of the country my grandkids will live in," adding change would "take a revolution," Chambers replied: "The only way to change it would be to kill the problem out. I know it’s bad to say but without killing them out there’s no way to fix it."

Chambers initially denied writing the post to WBRC but later said they were meant to be shared in a private message as opposed to a public post. He also said the comments were taken out of context.

"I never said anything about killing out gays or anything like that," Chambers told the television station, saying his posts was referring to what would happen in a "revolution."

"If it comes to a revolution in this country both sides of these people will be killed out," he said.

Chambers was not at city hall when AL.com attempted to contact him and the person who answered the phone said he did not have email. He has not responded to questions sent to him via the city clerk.

Carbon Hill is in Walker County. The town has a population of some 2,200 people.

#4  Chambers has a view of things and way of expressing that is not shared by many, but diversity is our strength after all.

#3  P2k, there is and I've moved here. People are generally very nice as long as you avoid the Massholes that migrate north and do to NH what Californicators are doing to Colorado, Oregon, WA etc.

#2  Lots of people die in civil wars. No getting around it. It's nasty. BTW, isn't there one state with a motto - Live Free or Die

#1  As Gowron said, "How do you kill an idea?" Every bad idea ever thought up becomes part of the human race's intellectual baggage. Just as bad money pushes out good money, merely having better ideas is no insurance of a decent outcome. That said, I'm just not up for thoughtcrime exterminations, it would rebound in ways I'd rather not contemplate.
