Christian preacher uses zoo analogy to argue against interracial marriage: ‘You don’t see eagles marrying buzzards’

Rabid right-wing Christian Dave Daubenmire, who thinks “Jews should be begging to become Christians,” and that a Pete Buttigieg presidency would be “beyond wicked,” is back at it again.

But this time, after taking his grandkids to the zoo, he’s attacking interracial marriage.

In a bizarre rant, he noted “you don’t see eagles marrying buzzards,” and other absurd and racist comments like “at the zoo last night I don’t think I saw one Oriental married to a black.” That zoo trip also included a visit to an aquarium, which gave him the opportunity to make the observation that “the guys who take care of that aquarium, keep certain fish out of that aquarium,” because they may eat each other.

It’s anyone’s guess as to what that has to do with interracial marriage, but there’s one very big point to be made here: Each of the animals he mentioned are all different species. Whether he and his fellow racists like it or not, humans are all one species.

But that’s Daubenmire for you; he’s a laughable racist of the worst sort.
