Former Trump adviser and Nazi-collaborator medal wearing prick Sebastian Gorka is in the news again. This time it’s because the fake-aristocratic snowflake is freaking out about public television children’s show Arthur. If you haven’t come across the cartoon Arthur it’s probably because you aren’t watching television with kids younger than 5 or so. Arthur is a successful children’s book series that has become a successful, long-running PBS kids show. It’s a world of anthropomorphic aardvarks (like Arthur) and his other anthropomorphic animal friends. It’s not for older children. And according to Sebastian Gorka it is the greatest threat to western civilization.
The Washington Post reports that Gorka, who works on a radio show called “America First,” went on a little rant about a new episode of the children’s cartoon, where Arthur’s third-grade teacher Mr. Ratburn gets married … to an aardvark! But all joking aside, it’s a gay marriage that the show makes no mention of as being anything more than a wedding for one of the show’s beloved characters.
“This is a war for our culture, and that’s why we exist here, on ‘America First,’ on the Salem Radio Network,” Gorka said…
“My children used to watch ‘Arthur’ 15 years ago, about a rodent-like creature that lived and had fun in his cartoon world,” Gorka said. “The new season of ‘Arthur’ will have one of Arthur’s teachers at school, a male teacher, married to a fellow male rodent.”
Sebastian Gorka is one of those big-talking right-wingers who can’t find enough safe spaces in his little bubble to make him feel secure. Even the Public Broadcasting Service won’t let little hate-filled Gorka alone! Today’s preoccupation with LGBTQ rights on the Gorka radio show seems to coincide with the announcement that the Trump administration will be opposing the Equality Act that would extend federal equal rights protections to LGBTQ Americans across the country.
Congratulations Mr. Ratburn! 🌈🐀https://t.co/8ejkwU1sfU

Sounds like the Trump administration and the right-wing homophobic base are trying another way to sell their old hatreds.
