Paladino: I Didn't Say That, I Didn't Write It, And No One On My Staff Did Either

On the "dysfunctional homosexual" line: He didn't actually say it. This is known fact. It was in his prepared remarks, and Newsday erroneously reported he said it. He didn't. When he got to that part, he just skipped over it.

So where did the line come from? Well, apparently the remarks were prepared by the conservative Rabbi whose congregation he was speaking to:

I reported earlier that Paladino campaign manager Michael Caputo said the remarks were prepared by hosts who'd invited the candidate to Orthodox Jewish areas of Brooklyn, and Rabbi Yehuda Levin, who was helping him navigate the area, backed that up to the Jewish Week's Adam Dickter. Levin is a conservative figure in the community who's strongly anti-gay rights and anti-abortion.

However, there were other lines in the speech - saying Andrew Cuomo set the wrong example by marching in the gay pride parade, where the focus is not solely marriage equality, and saying kids shouldn't be "brainwashed" into thinking a gay lifestyle is "valid" and "equally successful" - that were criticized. Dickter's headline referred to the speech broadly as "anti-gay."

Yeah, well, I don't think any of those latter lines are bad at all. The gay community has to understand that, contra their desires, they will not likely be wholeheartedly embraced by traditionalists, and should stop insisting that that be the goal or the bar for "tolerance." Unless they gay community thinks that 70% of the country is "anti-gay" (and a lot of the gay community does think that, of course), this goal has to be considered perhaps one to shoot for one day, but it can't be made the standard for determining who's "anti-gay" or not.

So, does this explanation get Paladino off the hook? Answer: Yes. I don't get this whole business of delegating campaign communications to outside parties he hopes to court -- and I hope he abandons this bizarre experiment with outsourcing forthwith -- but assuming he's telling the truth, and it does appear confirmed he is, then he had nothing to do with this statement, except hold a piece of paper containing it in his hand.

Which is the same level of culpability of the newspaper reporters who seized on the unstated statement.

8 The REAL problem with Paladino is his temper. He can't control it, and he almost came to fisty cuffs with a NY Post (!) reporter.

He's not going to find a friendlier outlet than the NY Post. So let's face it: he's become a caricature of an out-of-control politician, and because of the GOP of NY wasted this historic chance to nominate a serious candidate just as an incredible pro-Republican wave is coming, Andrew Cuomo - the man that bankrupted the United States almost singlehandedly - will become freaking governor of New York.

What the hell is the matter with New Yorkers?

9 Dare I ask what is the really offensive part of the "dysfunctional" sentence, irrespective of who wrote it? It seems pretty defensible within the boundaries of mainstream Judaism and Christianity. Is the outrage coming from juxtaposing dysfunctional with homosexual or with the assertion that God did not intend for humans to pursue homosexuality?

"There is nothing to be proud of in being a dysfunctional homosexual. That is not how God created us."

11 CoolCzech, I think it was DrewM. that mentioned that it actually looked like that reporter was either anti-Paladino or Pro-Cuomo, when that happened. So the Post might be the most friendly to him, but it doesn't mean that reporter was.

I am serious about my question. I consider myself to be a traditionalist in my personal life, but I don't consider myself to be a social con. Nevertheless, I really don't get the outrage about this statement.

13 As far as tempers go, Paladino is to Mahatma Gandhi as Cuomo is to Sonny Corleone (in more ways than one).

Whatever happens, the bottom line is do we want a hothead businessman who will vote the way we want, or do we want the former secretary of HUD who was an architect of the housing bubble and financial meltdown?

The choice is yours, New York.

Posted by: J.J. Sefton at October 11, 2010 07:55 PM (ulpU/)

14 I know a lot of people like Paladino's "I'm not a politician", loose cannon personality but it's just a terrible fit for NY. Not because he's too conservative (there is that though) but he's too much drama.

In the last 4 years we've gone though Spitzer's drama, which didn't start with Client Number 9 it just ended there but also Patterson 2 1/2 year long death spiral.

A calm, competent conservative might have played well this year but more drama? People have had enough of Governors melting down and Paladino is one long meltdown 24/7.

It was an overly exuberant Obama supporter. He'd written the book and wanted O to read it. (Little did he realize that O's been reading the same 5 books for the past couple of years, based on the ones he lists when asked.)

You're covering about 40 years worth of history, a lot of different offices and a good bit of geography.

I'm talking about a very short time frame and one office. I don't think Paladino would wear well and people are seeing that.

He never had a shot but let's just be honest and admit the campaign he's run in the last 3+ weeks has done nothing but make a long shot longer.

45 Even Rudy probably would have lost against the Cuomo machine. His father destroyed another former NYC mayor back in the day. The line the Cuomo machine used in a whisper campaign against Ed Koch? "Vote for Cuomo, not the homo" - which some have attributed to Andrew Cuomo, who was running his dad's campaign.

From many accounts, Andrew Cuomo is as much of a hothead as Paladino, but being a professional politician, hides it better. Paladino's trying to needle Cuomo into a big blow-up.

59 Well, apparently the remarks were prepared by the conservative Rabbi whose congregation he was speaking to:

You mean "orthodox" or "hassidic". 'Conservative', with respect to Judaism translates more to 'moderate' in political terms (though quite a few Conservative Jews lean left like the wacko Reforms). I know that you used a small-case "c" and were using conservative in its political sense, but it is a bit confusing in the context.

In any event, there was nothing wrong with anything that was said or written. Even left handers understand that they will have certain difficulties in life because the world is, generally, right-handed. That's just how it goes. Those who want homosexuality accepted as normal (which it will most probably never be even close to being) are at war with Nature.

Did you intend to link to something else, because that's just the full clip of the speech in question, not a new speech.

I don't know Paladino's strategy overall, but I don't see what's shocking about a Catholic man speaking to an Orthodox Jewish group about a topic that they apparently wanted him to address and basically saying what his Church (and theirs) teaches is God's intention vis a vis human sexuality.

I doubt gay marriage or gay topics are the most pressing ones facing New Yorkers, but I think if we've learned anything from CA and Prop 8, institutionalization of gay marriage is far from settled in this country. I don't see it as a huge losing issue.

I'm tired of hearing about "his temper"....you should see andrew's temper, he makes palladino look like a choir boy.

You are ignoring the fact that the guy is a real estate developer. That is a "seat or your pants" profession. Not lawyers who prepare, though he is a lawyer but not by trade, and not college professors who prepare and want to be in everyone's business and everybody's mom and dad. Business people are used to being thrown into a situation and surviving in tact with the advantage. Most lawyers and college professors and most professions would run from your average business meeting, tail between their legs, holding back the tears as they would have been "torn to shreds" merely using the english language.

If New Yorkers want to keep electing pussies then they are going to find themselves being taxed up the wazoo and bankrupt...planning to leave the state. You guys better hope palladino wins or you'll end up with lots and lots of New Yorkers as your neighbors.

Oh and today he criticized Andrew for taking his kids to the gay parade. He's right, that's no place for kids, just like the village halloween parade is an adult affair. (a great affair, a lot of fun, but adult)

Paladino's overall strategy is pretty clear to me: drag Cuomo into the mud, get under his skim, getCuomo to show off his legendary temper, lower Democratic turnout and win.

78 Y'know, it's just weird that the breeders keep slagging homos as perverts or weird or something. I mean, the parades they have are just people like you and me. Here's a gallery of photos that proves the point:

79 Gay parades are...........gay. What the fuck does that have to do with the Red Diaper Baby Socialist fucks trying to neuter my Country??? I'll tell you.....NOTHING.
Shut the fuck up about Gays until it become expedient to talk about Gays. Realpolitik. He had a slight chance now he has NO chance. I call that fucking dumb.
As Jonah Goldberg said on Fox tonight........ban the cameras.

80 Peter King was just on the JOhn Batchelor.....he was talking about how "brennan has to go" and King knows cause of his position. Batchelor forced him to talk about Palladino and he ended up endorsing him by saying "I support the candidate of the party" but not before he waterboarded palladino with words. He also said "he could do a lot with Cumo"....It's disappointing, King sounds like he could be posting on here. I'm really disappointed in King. Really, I hope mccarthy loses her seat so king can see that even the republicans who support him if he gets all RINOeee....will leave him .....

83 Ace, who made you fold? Rush? Didn't hear the show.
Small favor to the denizens of Upstate NY who have been raped by Democrats for 4 decades. No jobs. No business. The slight chance to remedy that situation tossed into win by this ballsy neophyte and you spin it.
Shit. Who to turn to now?

84 The gay community has to understand that, contra their desires, they will not likely be wholeheartedly embraced by traditionalists, and should stop insisting that that be the goal or the bar for "tolerance.

Meh.

I wouldn't worry so much about the official "gay community" feeling accepted by traditionalists.

They would HATE that!

I'm guessing that there is a not entirely negligible (and fluid) percentage of the "gay community" that finds "being gay" and therefore against "Traditional Views" much more of a draw than homosexuality, per se.

To this day, I've no idea why BDSM displays needs be a prominent part of a "Gay Pride" parade.

(Just going on remembrances of when I lived on Cornelia Halsted, in the early 90's.)

86 Just because he didn't say that homosexuals were dysfunctional, doesn't mean he didn't say that homosexuality isn't an equally valid "option" which is a thoroughly discredited strain of psychological thought (that homosexuality is an 'option'), and clearly offensive to many. And stupid.

87 The fellow in comment 59, "iknowtheleft",took the words right out of my keyboard. Yeah, "conservative" is probably a misleading term to use.

It's actually not "discredited." Homosexuality was de-listed as a disorder not as the result of a series of peer-reviewed studies, but as a result of political pressure. Such regard for science.

Anything else people ought not to say because the words are "clearly offensive" to many, cupcake?

91 He showed up at an event to read a speech that was prepared by the hosts of the event???

WTF???

Seriously, I might buy that if he were there to present some kind of award or something, but a candidate for governor accepting a speech from someone outside his own staff when he arrives at a speaking engagement?

Weak, dude - really weak.

92 Yehudah Levin is a loose cannon. Back in the mid 1980s when the NYC Council was holding hearings on outlawing discrimination based on sexual orientation Mr. Levin stated in response to an inquiry from me about jewish tolerance given their fragile place in goyische communities-(my paraphrase),--that Hitler was God's instrument in eradicating deviant jews (communists, unionists, socialists, non practicing jews) but God saved the saintly jewish leaders. After his short exposition on God's righteous destruction of the fallen European Jewish community through Hitler, I could not listen or support anything else coming from that man's mouth (or was it his a-hole?).

93 Paladino has nothing. He is rude, vulgar and bigoted. Maybe that woud be acceptable if he had actually done something for anyone but himself. Instead, he abuses the system to make a buck. You have respect for career politicians after that, for while they are corrupt, somebody else benefitted. Worse, Paladino actually criticizes those people for beng imperfect and whines that this same criticism is unfair when applied to him. He is the one taking cheap shots at others' lifestyles, but he threatens a reporter for following his mistress and bastard kid. "Why doesn't anyone talk about Cuomo." He is divorced and not criticizing others' private lives.

94 The Catholic Church is not going to be changing its teachings on homosexuality any time soon. Sensitive teens better learn to toughen up.

Let me know when the Catholic Church is running for governor. I'll move to Italy.

Having your private life broadcast around campus is just shitty, and taking offense is not especially weak, unless you have a problem with the Fourth Amendment to TEH CONSTITUTION.

99 First of all I think I should tell you that your post is covering quite a different topic.Fine, so still an "alternative lifestyle," but how about not driving gay
teens to suicide by adding to the teen angst with homophobia? This is
what minorities mean when they talk about "taking us back to then." I
don't pine for the days of Stonewall.
