United States Congressman George Santos (R-New York) became the first openly gay non-incumbent Republican elected to the House of Representatives in the November 2022 midterms. But a newly surfaced video from 2020 shows Santos railing against children whose parents are the same gender.

Speaking with right-wing commentator John Stubbins on his podcast, Indivisible, Santos – who has been outed as a fraud and pathological liar – said that schools should refrain from teaching kids about family diversity and declared that same-sex couples have destabilizing influences over a young person's psychological development.

Stubbins, meanwhile, agreed with all of Santos' points, which were debunked years ago.

Santos:

Well, look at it this way, John. The family unit's been under attack for decades. Look in different ways, right? In different ways. The flavor of the decade is same-sex couples. Oh, that's so, okay? Look, to each your own. I don't have anything against that, but they're teaching in school, kids, you don't need a mommy and a daddy. You can have two mommies. You can have two daddies. I think that's a little much for kids.

Stubbins:

Right. And it's not their place.

Santos:

And that's an attack on the family unit in the sense where they're just making excuses and reasoning to explain to kids why there's only one mommy or why there's only daddy, you know, and there's no other person, that it's okay to be like that. That's your unique type of family. I want to go back in time and think, why would it be bad for minorities in general? And that includes me, right? But why would it be bad for us to have a mom, a dad in the same household, your little brothers and sisters, you know? And then I keep thinking, because then that creates stability. And stability raises good individuals who can, who are independent thinkers...

Stubbins:

Yes.

Santos:

... who have instability in the family unit, you reap havoc. One parent can't parent two kids as well as two parents. And there's always that feminine touch to boys from the mother and that masculine touch to boys from the father. Same thing goes for the daughter, and it creates equilibrium and balance.

Stubbins:

Yes.

Santos:

Skills are tipped, and there's nobody left there, and you have just one-sided, you start creating troubled individuals. Troubled individuals are easier to manipulate and indoctrinate, and they buy pretty much anything and drink any Kool-Aid you give them. So that's why destroying the family unit has given the ability to eliminate any demand. We'll give you more money if you have no father. Each child will be worth more money if you have no father in the house. So that's the problem. That's where we stand.

Stubbins:

Yeah.
