Chuck Woolery: Ex-'Love Connection'-host believes gays, blacks 'don't need civil rights'
During the 1980s and early 90s, you probably came across Chuck Woolery trying to help singles find their ideal mate on Love Connection.
Nowadays he’s espousing his utlra-conservative political philosophy, for better or worse
Last Thursday after meeting with former Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Washington, D.C., Woolery asserted that the U.S. Court of Appeals was wrong to find the anti-gay marriage California Proposition 8 unconstitutional.
According to The Huffington Post, he claimed that gays and African-Americans don’t need civil rights or legal protections against discrimination.
“Majority rules,” he said, referring to the Proposition 8 vote in 2008. “We were born with national 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.”
