New Hampshire State Rep. Al Baldasaro has cheered the GOP booing of a gay soldier, media watchdog reported.

At last month's televised Fox News/Google debate, presidential candidate Rick Santorum answered a question submitted by Stephen Hill, a gay soldier serving in Iraq.

Referring to the recent repeal of “Don't Ask, Don't Tell,” Hill, dressed in an Army t-shirt, asked via a YouTube clip: “Do you intend to circumvent the progress that has been made for gay and lesbian soldiers in the military?”

The audience booed Hill's question, but cheered Santorum when he called DADT repeal a “tragic social experiment” and vowed he would reinstate the policy, if elected president.

Following a town hall on Friday in Derry, New Hampshire, Baldasaro, who recently endorsed the presidential campaign of Texas Governor Perry, said the booing was “great.”

“I was so disgusted over that gay marine coming out, because when he came out of the closet ...” Baldasaro started.

His “brothers” will “start ignoring him. He doesn't realize it, but when the shit hits the fan, you want your brothers covering you back, not looking at your back.”

“Did you have an issue with the audience reaction?”'s Scott Keyes asked.

“Oh no, I thought the audience, when they booed the marine, I thought it was great,” he replied. (The audio is embedded in the right panel of this page.)

Baldasaro has previously said he objects to gay marriage because it leads to polygamy and incest.
