San Antonio councilwoman defends secretly recorded anti-gay remarks

Monday, August 19, 2013

SAN ANTONIO — A San Antonio city council woman who was secretly recorded during a staff meeting in which she said homosexuality is “so disgusting” and “against nature,” defended her comments Monday in her first public statement on the controversy that erupted last week.

Expressing no remorse, Elisa Chan said Monday the remarks “were and are my personal opinions.”

Elisa Chan

“The comments from the staff meeting on May 21st were and are my personal opinions and thoughts as guaranteed to me by the 1st amendment to the U.S. Constitution,” said Chan, in a statement. “It is unfortunate that a former member of my D9 Council team betrayed the trust of my staff members and me. I will fight, I will always fight for our freedom of speech, especially in a private setting.”

Chan’s remarks were secretly recorded by a former staffer during a May 21 staff meeting regarding a proposal to amend San Antonio’s nondiscrimination ordinance to include protections for sexual orientation and gender identity.

In addition to referring to homosexuality as “so disgusting,” Chan said, “I don’t think homosexual people should do adoption. They should be banned by adoption. You’re going to confuse those kids. They should be banned.”

“If you wanted to choose that lifestyle, we don’t want to discriminate you, but you shouldn’t affect the young people,” she continued. “How terrible … They’re going to be confused. You see two men go into a bedroom. You see two women kissing. Is that not confusing? It’s confusing.”

San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro condemned Chan’s remarks, calling them “hurtful and misinformed” and that “they don’t reflect the views of the overwhelming majority of San Antonians.”

The recording also captured disparaging remarks from Jeff Bazan, then Chan’s chief of staff, and now a staff member for newly sworn in city councilman Ron Nirenberg.

In the recording, Bazan warns: “The road we’re going … incest and being able to marry animals, that’s all going to happen.”

On Friday, Nirenberg issued a statement indicating that Bazen has since been placed on “indefinite administrative leave.”

The recording was released just one day after a highly decorated openly gay Iraq war combat veteran was booed by a crowd of San Antonio residents when he attended the city council meeting to speak in support of the ordinance.

Chan said she plans to hold a press conference on the issue later this week.

  1. This councilwoman is unqualified to discuss this issue because she issued a blanket false statement. Homosexuality is RAMPANT in nature. Even in insects.

  2. she needs to be removed from office.

  5. Silly cow – nobody suggested that she would be arrested for her foul sentiments and those of her staff, and it´s from that the 1st amendment protects her. The censure of decent people is not included in that protection and she will, with hope, face just that.

  6. She sounds so confused herself. I feel sorry for her to feel so trapped in the closet. These are her personal issues she needs to handle. In the current climate of today´s world, she is committing political suicide. Would she makes these comments while on thwe stage running for office. no she knows it is not good to say. When there are several gay children who came out fine from gay parents. Seeing as most of the children out there have straight parents. I believe the cufusing is coming from their straight marriage. the kids causing problems of today, haqve straight parents. Is she really this foolish. Do they never really think out what they say.

  19. If she is going to judge anyone, it needs to be herself because the last time I checked, she´s no where near perfect. She needs to mind her own business and stay glued to her own life. Like I have said before, hate and bigotry is disgusting and dirty. Like dirty laundry, it needs to be clean before wearing them same thing for her, she needs to clean up her dirty attitude before using it.

    Posted on Monday, August 19, 2013 at 3:20pm
  20. …and of course, she defends it. What was she gonna do? Walk back what she said? OK, who voted for her. You now have the ammunition you need to do the opposite come the next election….

  31. The irony concerning the fact that the City of San Antonio, City Attorney Michael Bernard and SAPD Chief William McManus are being sued in Federal Court for violating the US Constitution when city “leaders” banned whistleblowers from City Hall and public meetings in an effort to stifle free speech and conceal decades of corruption is lost on the local media.
    Councilman Diego M Bernal is at the center of ongoing efforts to attack our family and religious values when he speaks of “rights” for himself and other gays BUT is a member of a City Hall inner-circle violating the US Constitution with a 45 month long
    illegal, unconstitutional criminal trespass warning issued to hide public/police corruption including three decades of theft/fraud involving tens of millions of City, County, State and Federal funds. …..
    San Antonio TX city attorney Michael Bernard continues to use public funds to finance an ONGOING criminal conspiracy to conceal criminal activity inside the City and County. Bexar County District Attorney Susan Reed and her office has helped her former First Assistant DA conceal the crimes by stalling any investigation and providing
    “get out of jail free “ protection to everyone violating the law in an effort to assist City Attorney Bernard’s efforts to hide the criminal activity. We object to the use of OUR money and OUR City/County resources in efforts to conceal the theft and misuse of tens of millions of OUR dollars. …..
    In the years leading up to a February 2009 Whistleblower lawsuit city attorney Bernard paid the law firm of Fitzpatrick & Kosanovich to help city attorney Deborah Klein and others defraud our judicial system and illegally coach witnesses to conceal three decades of fraud and theft. The same law firm has again been hired by Bernard to help conceal an unconstitutional, illegal criminal trespass warning he issued to help hide his
    crimes, forty-five months of Texas Open Meeting violations and the underlying
    criminal activity. Attorneys Fitzpatrick and Kosanovich have in the past presented false statements to the Court ( and were paid at least $ 56,900 ) and again – in violation of the law- present false statements in documents submitted to US District Judge Xavier
    Rodriguez ( case 5:13-cv-00051) in an effort to hide the public/police corruption impacting tens of millions of OUR dollars. DA Susan Reed’s “Get Out Of Jail Free” protection allows attorneys Kosanovich and Fitzpatrick to lie with no fear of prosecution. …..
    A hearing is scheduled for Sept 20 where the Court will again be reminded of the ONGOING criminal conspiracy and efforts of the Defendants (including Councilperson Diego M Bernal) and their attorneys to defraud the Court and conceal their crimes.
    The DOJ, the FBI, the DPS, etc. have been asked to file criminal charges.

  36. No one is denying this woman´s right to say whatever she wants to say, but I think the whole tautology of “I can say whatever I want to, because I´m protected by the First Amendment” is wearing extremely thin. Even though she is indeed exercising her right, this type of “free speech” is hate speech, plain and simple. She, along with other politicians, is making ill-informed, gratuitous statements about homosexuality, something about which neither she nor they have a lot of knowledge. We´re not “confusing” or “recruiting” children simply because some of us would like to adopt. I strongly suggest that she get her facts straight before launching anymore invectives. And while she´s at it, since she´s so hellbent on nature according to the Bible, she should probably read Matthew 7 in its entirety.

  42. It´s like she never met any real gay people in her entire life. An elected official should be making decisions and forming opinions based on facts, not on some fantasy line view of the world and a willful laziness to keep on blinders about those not just like her.

    Posted on Monday, August 19, 2013 at 3:47pm
  43. There is no defense for what she said. Period. She ought to be removed from her position immediately right along with the other men in that room who were party to that disgusting diatribe of filthy garbage they said about gay people. None of which is true. I do not intend or want to commit incest or shag and farm animal, just because I am gay, and for them to state so liberally that EQUALITY protections would throw the door wide open for such criminal acts to occur, according to them, GOD HELP US ALL if that who will be representing me or my family!

  44. Defend? There is no defense for hate speech, whether publically or privately. Brava to the ´former member´ for outing her. (oh, now that would be justice, wouldn´t it?)

    Posted on Monday, August 19, 2013 at 3:52pm
  49. Doesn´t matter who they are! If you´re going to discriminate , than prepare for a lashing in return! She´s one to talk, considering, not to sound racist, that some people regarded her people as not so desirable at a time! We need REAL equality. Idiots like this should be put away somewhere and shut up for good.

  87. I agree with Zechery. This woman has the right to speak her peace. That is what the 1st Amendment guarantees. It does not follow that she will be protected from being judged as a bigot, and uninformed about the Constitution for what she has spoken about.

  89. She was correct in one comment she made. Her 1st admendment rights allows her to state her opinion, it doesn´t mean everyone around must agree with her misinformation though. If I lived in her district I would not vote for her. Then again, that is my opinion.

  94. Frankly, there is no defense, including personal views, that any public official can offer up when they make anti-gay, discriminatory remarks. To hell with her 1st amendment rights. She is promoting hate and that is a crime. She should be removed from office and face a court hearing for making such comments.

Please don´t be bigoted and racist in your remarks against her here. Be angry, but don´t be stupid. Makes you look the fool too! Her ethnicity is something she can´t control, nor can you control yours, so think about the comment you leave here.

  110. Of course she´s dead wrong and I couldn´t disagree more with her. However, I´ll spot her points for owning her statements. None of that ” I was misquoted.”, or “What I said was taken out of context.” No, she flies her bigotry flag quite proudly. She´s someone a challenger will be able to have an honest debate with.

  112. Yeah, if it were a private setting I would let this woman have her deplorable hate speech & pity her ignorance. However this was a PROFESSIONAL SETTING, in a government staff meeting-NOT ACCEPTABLE. Just saying if she had, for example, been discussing interracial couples & how that could “confuse children” she already would have been shown the door.

  121. We will NOT be your SCAPEGOATS anymore! People like this individual need to realize that it is one thing to have a personal opinion- it is quite another to use your opinion as a matter of policy and rational for enacting discriminatory laws and regulations- if this individual lived during WW2 , she would have found herself on the receiving end of bigotry and racial profiling –

    Posted on Monday, August 19, 2013 at 10:17pm
  122. “Chan said she plans to hold a press conference on the issue later this week.” Backpedaling are we? Have you FORGOTTEN that not so long ago, Asians were NOT allowed to live in WHITE neighborhoods, where addressed as ´Chinks´, ´Gooks´, and ´Japs´? And have you FORGOTTEN about the internment of the Japanese Americans out of racial fear? It seems you have forgotten the lessons learned by your forefathers and you should be ashamed!

  159. As a child of immigrants, Asian and a woman in an elected position you should be ashamed of your bigotry and hate. You should resign and hopefully someone less toxic will fill your position. May you someday find peace in giving up your hate of those different than you. You need to develop an open mind and a closed mouth.

  162. It´s not a private setting. She´s an elected official meeting on taxpayer time. This is for the record comments. If she doesn´t like that her offensive comments are part of the public record, she should either not make ignorant comments or not be in public office.

  173. Personal opinion in a public office makes it fair game. Everyone is entitled to beliefs however, when you are a public elected official, it is your duty to conduct fair and ethical treatment of others period. There is no middle ground.

You should be ashamed of yourself, if there will be another election, definitely you are OUT,,!!! bec IF the people around you are mostly gays and lesbians, NOBODY will gonna vote for you,,,,respect the human rights miss council woman,,,

    Posted on Tuesday, August 20, 2013 at 4:12am
  183. She can say whatever she wants in her house. While on duty as an elected official, she has the moral obligation to abide by the Constitution and ensure all people in her area have all rights as afforded by law.

    Posted on Tuesday, August 20, 2013 at 4:12am
  184. Does she know that Asian people were discriminated against many years ago? Does she know that Asians were denied the right to be American citizens just for being Asian? Is she going to continue discriminating the same way Asians were discriminated many years ago? She needs to learn something before holding any public office. Pathetic.

    Posted on Tuesday, August 20, 2013 at 4:12am

  187. Since she has a view against homosexuality, then I could have made a comment on her being Asian and how Asian people can not drive. It is a two-way street, people should pick their words very carefully and assume that they´re being recorded at all times in public and in private. And the common word of thumb that our mothers have taught us “if we do not have anything nice to say, don´t say it at all”.#Elisa_Chan #ElisaChan #sanAntonio #homophobia #lgbt

    Posted on Tuesday, August 20, 2013 at 4:25am
  192. As far as I´m concerned she at least gets credit for sticking to her words unlike the other how many people that say stuff like this then are allowed to get off scot free because they think “oh wait! My actions have repercussions! I am SO sorry…”

    Posted on Tuesday, August 20, 2013 at 4:27am
  193. @Cary

    Sorry, but your comment is offensive to those who are mentally ill.

    This woman is ignorant. Ignorance is learned and not something people are born with.

    Those who are mentally ill don´t choose to be that way. She is choosing to be ignorant.

    Please respect those with differences and disabilities and do not use “mentally ill” as an insult.

    Thank you.

Why those so critical and divisive to the American society always get to be public leaders. Why……?……Where is Liberty, Freedom, and Justice promised to all in our Constitution.

  229. When are people going to learn that while you have every right to express a judgmental opinion, that right does not keep YOU safe from being judged for having that opinion. It goes both ways. Say what you want, but be prepared for the backlash. So here´s my opinion, Ms Chan is a huge ignorant bitch. Children will be confused? Well, maybe, if YOU choose to keep reality from them. It takes about, what, 20 seconds to explain it? I feel sorry for her children, thats for sure.

  234. I have nothing against her having her personal opinions, as long as they don´t get in the way of her doing her JOB without bias. It´s like my mother. She doesn´t agree with my lifestyle, but it doesn´t make me less in her eyes because I am her daughter. If the woman can work FOR the people without her discriminatory attitude dehumanizing a specific class than who are we to take away her right to an opinion?

  237. And what good are you doing, Holly, with your hate speech and discrimination of her race? Your hate is as powerful as anyone else´s and your voice will be remembered as spreading it, rather than defusing it. Hate does not beget hate. We need to find more positive and constructive ways to express ourselves to the world around us or we will be no better than the bullies and oppressors we rally against.

  243. People are allowed to disagree with one another. That´s called life. It´s the back and forth vileness and hate and the dickishness that makes it all so disappointing. My mother doesn´t agree with my lifestyle. Does that make her evil? Should she go live in Russia? She doesn´t hate. She doesn´t discriminate. She just doesn´t agree.

  256. El you are a typical waste of sperm and child of assumed privilege and like Chan strive to fuck your way to the middle and step on others to prove self worth. When in all honesty you are deeply self loathing and pathetic. You and Chan are what´s wrong with the world. So sorry your parents divorced it shows angry little pig. Did your mother catch your father taking it in the ass by the Gardner again.And El contrary to how successful you might think you are. The rest of us can´t wait to see you embrace your obvious trailer park roots. So pick up a bag of cheese balls and embrace your true queen The honey boo boo child.

  269. as a trans woman this is my opinion–yes she sucks. however this is HER opinion and she has right to have it like everyone of us here has the right to be who we are. She just needs to keep it out of government work, where its important to be objective. El mariachi or mandingo whoever the fuck you are–Im just going to call you Pepe–you also have the right to your opinions, and if it´s against the veiws of this page please kindly fuck right off–where its your right to have these opinions..post them where your other bigoted misinformed asshats are. As far as wishing we were “normal” most of us..we think we are normal for who we are, if you think it´s abnormal, well that seems to be your problem doesn´t it? Maybe you need to see a sex therapist to be more confident in your self esteem, because you´re clearly NOT comfortable in your own sexuality, which doesnt mean your a big Nelly there Pepe, it just means your “saintly mother” or your “idiot mother and idiot father” didn´t explain all the aspects of sexuality and desire. I didnt imagine so, but i dont imagine she taught you much, considering you jump to insults and playground wrfare, you´re more funny than insulting, not funny ha ha, but funny as in ” aww poor thing feels inadequate” then point and laugh funny.

    Posted on Tuesday, August 20, 2013 at 8:59am
  270. As for the rest of us…the lgbt community and gay men are the worst at this, has the worst habit of trying to “outbitch” everyone..well here is the slam of the day, and you deserve it…The problem with these right wing homophobic people is their inane ability to act like injured toddlers…but do you want to know whatd even more disgusting…is how we respond to it…we end up saying worse and doing worse things than they do…it´s disgusting, and disgraceful, and this is why people cant accept us, because our behavior ends up being far more embarrassing, seemingly proving them correct in their assumptions…KNOCK IT OFF..the making out in front of protesters, the dry humping in front of protesters in public, the horrible insults hurled at anyone who hurls them at us–WE ARE BETTER>>>yes better than you Pepe<<< so we need to begin to act like it. I am ashamed at being a part of this community a lot because of this, not because of who we are–but because how we fucking conduct ourselves. ANd yes white trash assholes like El mandingo or whatever the fuck, will troll you from time to time, but seriously, one pimple popping, skinny excuse of a man isn´t anything to get your panties in a wad over..look at him lol…We need to be treated equally, not better, we need the same rights not more, and we need to conduct ourselves with a little fucking decorum…They WANT to draw you into a fight, and guess what–you follow blindly right into the ring like a puppet…ive said it before and ill say it again..disgrace disgrace disgrace…we´d have probably had our rights by now if it wasnt for some of us

    Posted on Tuesday, August 20, 2013 at 10:19am
  274. Matthew Pearce, now you know that not all straight people are evil. There are many good straight people who are trying to work to increase rights and acceptance of the LGBT community. I can understand and appreciate your frustration and anger, but it is unfair to lump all of one people into a single category based on the atrocious actions of some.

    Posted on Tuesday, August 20, 2013 at 10:23am
  275. Her attitude is absolutely atrocious! And the shameful part of it is that she doesn´t care. She has the nerve to defend the indefensible! She should be voted out of office!

    Posted on Tuesday, August 20, 2013 at 10:50am
  277. As an elected official, I remind you that you represent all of your constituents. Your personal opinions have no place in the governance of the citizens you represent. Your meager attempt to justify your hatred of those different from you, only serves to demonstrate why you are unfit to govern. In my opinion you should have no say in the design or implimentation of any law due to your bias. You owe a big apology to the gay community and should step down immediately from the position you hold. I doubt you will be re elected. You are going down! (no pun intended) Bigot

  278. Feel free to drop her a message on her Facebook page.

    Posted on Tuesday, August 20, 2013 at 11:31am
  279. She is an idiot. The only thing that is disgusting about the topic of homosexuality and her “discussion” is her unparallelled ignorance. I´d be glad to debate her on the topic as soon as she can speak in complete sentences.

    Posted on Tuesday, August 20, 2013 at 11:43am

  281. Why did she not run on this platform. If it is her personal opinion. this should have came out in here campaign. Their personal opinions is why we elect them. I bet she had nothing but good to say about the gays while running for office. She wanted their vote. This shows me what kind of politician she is. just like all the rest, a liar.

  290. I don´t see how that´s a defense and if she thinks it is, she´s stupid and bigoted. Of course those are her personal opinions – that´s the point.

    Posted on Tuesday, August 20, 2013 at 12:54pm
  291. El you are unbelievable, Gays should be burned at the stake or beaten? WOW GET A FREAKING LIFE, being homophobic to your extent is FUNNY as hell, we don´t bite lol, were aren´t contagious, and I was raised in a very wonderful home, and was and am brought up right, i have respect, integrity, and honesty, I have a beautiful daughter, that i take very good care of, and we have a beautiful home, Being gay is NOT a choice, and there is nothing wrong with it, If you don´t like it fine, but your hate and ignorance proves how your were raised. STOP THE HATE!!!!

    Posted on Tuesday, August 20, 2013 at 12:55pm
  292. well she shouldnt get a salary that is also sponsored by gay tax payers!and for someone who is part of a minority too, she´d better shut the hell up!or maybe we should send some clan-members to her house and let them tell HER THEIR opinion about non-white people!

  295. Lady ur just as fucked up at the reat of the haters. Ur also a coward for hiding behind the 1st amendment. But the problem here is that u discriminated the entire gay community and its also slander and libel because not all gays are disgusting. So guess what the 1st amendment doesnt apply to slander and libel charges. U wud b charged with harrassment. Furthermore, u shud know that as a councilwoman u are always being recorded or quote by the press or someone else. U should also know that u never make stupid comments during a council meeting. U have just destroyed ur political career.

    Posted on Tuesday, August 20, 2013 at 2:37pm
  302. As disgusting as her opinions are (in my opinion), I´m never a fan of someone secretly recording someone else and releasing the material, though I am sure there are exceptions to that idea that could be appropriate.

    Her opinions being released in this manner and without her consent is only going to give her incentive to dig in and not be open to other ideas, is my guess.
