Dumb-ass game show host, Chuck Woolery, best known for hosting such TV pablum as Love Connection, Scrabble, and Lingo, is also a radical, rightwinger. Who knew?
Huffington Post caught up to Woolery at the CPAC convention on Friday where he expressed his views on civil rights. He slammed the recent Prop 8 court ruling which determined the anti-marriage equality proposition was unconstitutional and said gays don’t need civil rights. In fact, he believes African-Americans need no civil rights.
“Majority rules. We were born with natural rights. We don’t need civil rights. African-Americans don’t need civil rights. They don’t need them. They have inalienable rights granted by God in the Constitution. I mean, I’m discriminated against all the time. I don’t care. It doesn’t bother me. I’m discriminated against because I’m old. I’m too old to get a job as a game show host. They say, well, the guy’s 71 and in five years he’ll be 76. And I’m a one per center, and I’m absolutely discriminated against as a one per center.”
Other rightwing Republican game show hosts include Wheel of Fortune’s Pat Sajak, Price is Right’s Drew Carey, and Jeopardy’s Alex Trebek.
