Former UKIP deputy leader Lord Christopher Monckton has claimed that gays sleep with up to 20,000 people over their "short, miserable lives". He also alleges that the LGBT "deathstyle" (as opposed to, you know, lifestyle) leads to diseases like HIV and AIDS.
Monckton once served as a political advisor to Margaret Thatcher and joined UKIP in 2009, rising to the role of deputy leader. In a column for WorldNetDaily, he writes: "Official survey after official survey had shown that homosexuals had an average of 500 – 1,000 partners in their sexually active lifetime, and that some had as many as 20,000."
He adds: "One wonders how they found time for anything else." You mean, alongside all those other gay-only habits like doing our hair and makeup, collecting Barbara Streisand memorabilia and practising our limp throwing arms? Maybe we just have a very organised iCal.
The ex-UKIP member goes on to call AIDS a "gay" disease, writing: "The wages of promiscuity is deadly disease. It is now at last admitted, even in official circles, that HIV is chiefly a disease of homosexuals and drug-abusers – and that a far greater percentage of homosexuals than heterosexuals do drugs."
"AIDS, then, is at root a 'gay' disease, and officialdom’s terrified refusal to admit that fact has killed 36 million worldwide."
Monckton was sacked by UKIP leader Nigel Farage in 2009 after factional infighting in the group. He has since reinvented himself as a climate change denier and has been given a lifetime ban from attending UN climate talks after he interrupted a conference to make a speech about how global warming did not exist.
Nice to know he's expanded his repertoire to include homophobic opinion pieces.
