Kevin O’Leary: “I don't care if you want to marry a goat, I'm for it”

Ezra LevantRebel Commander
 

During the Conservative Party convention in Vancouver, I sat down with investor, "Dragon's Den" star and potential CPC leadership candidate Kevin O'Leary. In this excerpt from our full interview, I ask him about social issues such as gay marriage and marijuana legalization.

MM. i’m not against progress. I’m against regression masquerading as progress. There will be slave owners again as soon as the Muslims are in control. But according to you the Muslims are the heart and soul of progress. The abundance of evidence says otherwise.

“Murder and stealing are not subjective. "

Again, WHY are murder and stealing not subjectively immoral?

Also again, (you’re quite good at avoiding questions) is sleeping with a nine year old is objectively immoral regardless of a persons differing views of right and wrong? Yes or No.

“Pedophilia will never be normalized, because adults fucking children will never be accepted or made legal. "

Again, why will it never be normalized? When I asked before, you said because it won’t. Try harder Michael.

Nnaumbua,

You can’t really be this dumb – but maybe you are.

Pedophilia will never be normalized, because adults fucking children will never be accepted or made legal.

It’s laughable and pathetic that you actually equate gay people and pedophiles and thus think we could be living in a world one day where adults are fucking children and it’s perfectly acceptable, because hey – gay marriage was illegal before too.

Men have been living as women for many decades, so Bruce Jenner becoming a woman wasn’t some new thing – it’s just that he was high profile/a celebrity, so it was covered in the media.

You seem to be living a very sheltered life that has kept you ignorant.

Forgot to put quotation marks around this:

“Yes and Christianity was considered a cult that would get you murdered at one point. Since it’s illegal for adults to fuck children just in a general sense, pedophilia will never become legal or normalized.”

“Nnaumbua,

I see that you are a big fan of hyperbole and straw man arguments.

Murder and stealing are not subjective. "

Yes I agree. I asked you to explain why.

“Do you really have to use sleeping with a 9 year old to make your argument? We are talking about morality in the reasonable every day sense – not the hyperbolic extreme sense.”

I don’t care what you do in your personal life. I am only stating that the slippery slope that conservative retards mention in response to gay marriage isn’t going to happen. You want to fuck your 25 year old daughter and she is fine with it – knock yourself out. You want to marry 5 women – go for it. I don’t care. "

So are you saying that sleeping with a nine year old is objectively immoral regardless of a persons differing views of right and wrong? Yes and Christianity was considered a cult that would get you murdered at one point. Since it’s illegal for adults to fuck children just in a general sense, pedophilia will never become legal or normalized.

Why will pedophilia never become normalized? You do realize Bruce Jenner became a “woman” last year right? Did you see that coming 15 or 20 years ago? Why is it so out of the realm of possibility? Homosexuality used to be illegal. Now it’s not.

It’s laughable to even compare gay people with a pedophile, but I know bigoted and homophobic conservatives will do exactly that to make their slippery slope case.

“Nnaumbua,

Yes – morality is subjective. Your example would be breaking the law and there is difference when it comes to right and wrong. Murder isn’t subjective. "

Are you saying that stealing is not objectively immoral? Why isn’t murder subjectively immoral?

“Just because you may want to save yourself until marriage for example – doesn’t mean that it’s morally wrong for someone to lose their virginity to someone that they don’t plan on marrying. It may be morally wrong when it comes to your religion, but the whole world isn’t following your religion.”

So morality is subjective because people have different views about what is right and wrong. Really? So If I believe contrary to others that sleeping with a 9 year old like Muhammed, then it is not wrong?

“Even people who do follow a religion that say that it’s wrong – do it anyway. Hence subjective. People pick and choose what to follow and what to ignore when it comes to morality. They decide what’s best for them or what they agree or disagree with. "

So morality is subjective because some people don’t practice what they preach? So if I believe that murder is objectively immoral but murder someone anyway, that makes murder subjectively immoral?

“As for your moronic question – yes. Just because gay marriage is legal – doesn’t mean that animal, incest or pedophile marriages are next to go before The Supreme Court. This is the idiocy of conservatives and the slippery slope. "

Wait a minute, who are you to tell me what I can and can’t do in my personal life? I thought morality was subjective. And what if a 45 year old widowed dad wants to marry his consenting 25 year old daughter? Ditto with Polygamy. If any two consenting adults can be married, why not 3 or 4 consenting adults?

As for pedophilia, it is being normalized with the same arguments used to normalize homosexuality. Homosexuality, I remind you, used to be considered a disorder. As my links below show, some people don’t think that pedophilia is a disorder.

Al,

So obviously you want to take away women’s rights and have your own black slave, since you are so against progress. I don’t view gay people as being any different. They were born that way and they deserve the same rights as everyone else.

“6. Stigma reduction. We recognize the severe stigma directed against minor-attracted people by the media, politicians, law enforcement officials, and some mental health professionals. We oppose the perpetuation of false stereotypes and the use of language that instills fear in the public, fails to promote understanding, and ignores the humanity of minor-attracted people. We realize that stigma and stereotypes force minor-attracted people to remain in hiding and prevent those who could benefit from mental health services from receiving them. We do not believe this serves the interests of children, minor-attracted people, or society in general. Therefore, providers have an obligation within their profession and community to speak up and confront stereotype-perpetuating statements made by professional colleagues, family members, friends, and the media. Providers need to educate professionals and the larger community regarding persons sexually attracted to children or adolescents.”

The thing about slippery slopes is that sometimes they’re true:

“If I seek mental health services, does that mean I’m saying that my attraction to minors is a sickness?

No. We are trying to make services available to minor-attracted people who want them to work through issues unrelated to their sexuality, to deal with society’s response to their sexual feelings, or to develop satisfying and productive lives while living within the law. We are not advocating treatment to change sexual feelings."

http://www.b4uact.org/attracted-to-minors/faq-for-maps/

“We understand that the attraction to children or adolescents is both sexual and emotional, and that individuals do not choose to have these feelings. People who are attracted to minors usually recognize their feelings in adolescence or young adulthood, and feel that they are very different from other persons.”

Pedophi… sorry, “minor attracted persons” didn’t choose their sexuality. It’s just who they are and they are not suffering from a mental illness. Sound familiar to anyone?

Michael Mann said: "Dieter,

No one needs someone like you to tell us what is right and what is wrong. Morality is subjective."

Really? Morality is subjective? So If I think that waltzing into your home and helping myself to your valuables and car keys without your permission is not a bad thing and I do it, then there is nothing wrong with my actions?

“Part of your problem – and this is the same problem that most extreme conservatives have – they believe in the slippery slope.

Well if gay people can legally get married – what’s next? Bestiality marriages? Pedophilia marriages? Incest marriages???

It’s moronic. "

Out of curiosity, do you think that marrying an animal, marrying a child, or incest should be prohibited? What about polygamy?

Dr. Genius said: “Which part, the goat? That’s a rhetorical device O’Leary uses a lot. Regulating pot? Fighting against 1/3rd of the population is senseless.”

Yes, I was referring to his statement about marrying a goat. Out of curiosity, would you object to goat marriage?

“Assisted suicide is something every indebted first-world country is going to need very soon. Half of our healthcare budget is spent keeping dying people alive for a few more months. HALF. We can’t afford this. O’Leary is center-left on social issues and center-right on economic issues. I’m the same way. The government should stay out of your personal life. "

The fig leaf of mercy didn’t take long to drop eh? To whom are you referring when you say “dying people?”

It’s called progress and the advancement of society. Perhaps were you just born in the wrong century. Michael you’re wrong. You are always telling people to get an education. Here’s why you need one: All the homo garbage is not progress just because you slap that label on it. It is actually going back to the decline of Rome with their increasing homosexuality. Apparently it is you who was born in the wrong century or even millennium.

Sexual immorality aways goes hand in hand with the decline of a society. Enjoy the show. It’s going to be a wild old ride into the abyss. The only ones left standing will be the social cons since they are the only ones who have a moral foundation adequate to sustain the onslaught and chaos.

Michael Mann: Taxing and regulating marijuana will be ineffective. The criminal will undercut the price and increase the potency and sell harder drugs. This is a problem that will eventually hurt not only communities because of the rise in crime but will lead to more personal harms to users. Sadly the pro drug crowd is unconcerned about the fall out and only seem to be interested in monetary gain. Your explanation of “certainly a fucking plant” reminds me of some of the most ridiculous justifications my pot using friends use to make like “marijuana can’t hurt you because it comes from the ground”. Uhm yeah everything pretty much comes from the ground but I wouldn’t suggest smoking poison Ivy or scores of other lethal substances and as far as your contention that human rights trump religious belief first off the only reason why Gay marriage was passed was Chretien forced the legislation through in such a sleazy manner it lead to the resignation of one of his own cabinet ministers. There is no medical proof that a gay gene even exists. https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/foremost-uk-gay-activist-admits-there-is-no-gay-gene Finally in our charter of rights we acknowledge the Supremacy of God and freedom of conscience in other words God trumps the charter and unlike the U.S. there is no guaranteed separation of church and state. http://www.theccfblog.ca/2012/12/no-constitutional-separation-of-church.html

MICHAEL MANN said: “Jan, No – it was so that they had the same rights as everyone else. They don’t want something that resembles marriage – they want marriage and rightfully so.
Separation of church and state – the Catholic Church have no say in the matter and their beliefs are completely irrelevant.”

Just wait until your hero Trudope imports more jihadis and Islam makes a power play.
Seriously doubt there will be a cry for separation of church and state when that happens. More likely the instances of persons being tossed off tall buildings will escalate……………!

Liza,

It wasn’t changed on a whim. It’s been something that gay people have fought for – for many decades and before you were born. It ONLY became legal in Canada in 2005 and in America in 2015.

Century old things get changed all the time on a whim by the way. It’s called progress and the advancement of society. Perhaps were you just born in the wrong century.

Kenneth,

You can speak your mind all you want, but you need to understand that free speech doesn’t mean free of consequences.

You can be fired for the things you say in the name of free speech and you can be mocked and attacked for the things you say in name of free speech if what you are saying is deemed to be bigoted, racist, homophobic, hateful or simply on the wrong side of history.

Free speech goes both ways. You can say what you want, but people can also say that you are idiot for having those views.

What Jamie and Anthony Z said.
Anthony posted, ". Having government involved in marriage only gives them the power to force their version of it down the throats of school children and prosecute religious bakers and florists. "
It is actually an infringement on everyone’s rights. It shouldn’t be an issue dictated by the government. Give couples who live together some legal rights to each others shared assets but that is as far as government interference should go. The centuries old definition of marriage can’t be changed by the whim of the government.
commented 2016-05-29 12:05:04 -0400
Far as I’m concerned the issue isn’t gay marriage, but the rights of a particular preacher, church, cake-maker, hall-renter, to say “NO”.

That’s the thing I want Conservatives to deal with.

And by extension, the right to say NO to anyone who wants to board an airplane, drive a car, write a cheque, etc., with his/her face covered.

No harm in same sex marriage?

Try the condition of “irreconcilable differences” when seeking a divorce. Right now the list for differences is pretty long and defensible.

Toss in something “incompatible orientations” or “gender differences” and you will open up a whole level of stupid.

In a society that is becoming increasingly relativist and immoral in its judgements, anything goes is not the sort of thing that should be accepted. Just wait to see how far one will take it and you will be amazed at the outcomes. And these outcomes will have real impacts across the larger society.

We are already witnessing the growing “elephant’s graveyard” of uteruses, as women are finding marriage options dwindle because marriage is regarded as disposable or customizable for some political end. The abundance of terminally single women (and not by choice) are resulting in mental illness and rising mortality rates among women. As matters grow worse, the real costs of such policies will be incalculable.

Anonymous, you can continue to toss out terms like bigot and homophobe and islamaphobe etc, etc but it doesn’t make it true. It is simply another of the tiresome attempts of the left wing to stifle rational discourse. Give it up already and move on to actually engaging in rational discourse. You..you..you… conservaaphobe.
