Ah yes, trying to campaign on disgust and fear. It’s been done, y’all:
One of the PAC’s co-founders, Mike Heath, is fond of statements like this one:
"We should also seriously consider forcing Maine government to end it’s [sic] regulatory franchise over marriage, and give marriage back to individuals and the church. It would be better if our government and political class would choose agreement with Jesus. If this isn’t possible then they must choose neutrality. Some Maine people argue for a constitutional amendment defining marriage as between a man and a woman. This costly venture is likely to produce nothing positive.
And by continuing our focus on political and government solutions to this threat we are probably giving the devil what he wants. Jesus warned us about power and money. There is no place in Maine where power and money are more concentrated than in our state government. We would be naive to trust it… Both political parties have made themselves irrelevant. Maine will not long survive without strong families.
Now here’s my burning question: What if there’s a man and a woman, married in heterosexual matrimony, who just really dig sodomy of all kinds? Is that then a sodomy-based marriage? Or does God give them a Mulligan since it’s not two dudes? I’M SO CONFUSED! Does God have a preference on giving and receiving? Help me, internets!
And it’s just as fantastic as it sounds:
Watch the video:
The look of shock on her face is incredible. Elijah is brave little man, and I commend him.

Goddammit, Sally Kern. She said this while promoting her “wahhhh, I’m a victim!” book, The Stoning of Sally Kern. I think if Sally got stoned once in awhile, it might chill her out a titch. It worked for a white-power girl pop band.
Basically, Sally Kern is a horrible human being who can’t understand why people hate her. Let me boil this down for you: When you say horrible things, people think you believe them. You haven’t really given us any indication we should think otherwise.
UPDATE: As of 10:15 PM MST, it appears the page is down. The sentiment still stands. A little bit of online Way Back Machine research has shown he puts it up as soon as it’s removed. If he does, I’ll update the link. I encourage people to still reblog. We need to be aware of things like this page. It’s one thing to start a troll page. It’s another to start issuing racist, misogynistic threats.
SECOND UPDATE: At 11:45 PM MST, a sharp-eyed Facebooker spotted a brand-new possible profile for this guy. Keep an eye on Carl Zukosky - don’t report just yet.
This Facebook page features racist imagery of the First Family - unfortunately, nothing new on Facebook, and that alone makes me furious.
However, this is why I reported it:
James Earl Ray assassinated Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The intent of this message is quite clear.
In response to a woman who reported them, they posted her full name and location (which I blurred), while a supporter of this page chimed in with a veiled threat of rape:
To view the page for yourself and to report it, please click on the link above.
To Carl Zukoski, owner of the page, and those commenting as supporters of this page, you are the assholes of America.
Oh, and I’ll save you the trouble of posting my name and location because it’s no state secret. My name is Meg Lanker-Simons. I live in Laramie, Wyoming.
And I’m not afraid of you.
Lamborn: Even if some people say, “Well the Republicans should have done this or they should have done that,” they will hold the President responsible. Now, I don’t even want to have to be associated with him. It’s like touching a tar baby and you get it, you’re stuck, and you’re a part of the problem now and you can’t get away. I don’t want that to happen to us, but if it does or not, he’ll still get, properly so, the blame because his policies for four years will have failed the American people.
Colorado followers: If he has a town hall, ask him about this comment. Call his office and let them know what you think about his disgusting, blatant racism: 202-225-4422
Here’s a Facebook poll from the rabidly anti-gay Rep. Steve King, (R-Iowa). He’s equated marriage equality with establishing socialism, that ENDA wouldn’t be necessary if gay people wouldn’t wear their sexuality on their sleeve, and claimed the hate crimes act was the pedophilia protection act.
Something tells me this is not the answer he was hoping he’d get. Click on the picture if you’d like to vote.
Peter LaBarbera, founder and president of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH), responding to Saturday’s gay pride parade in San Diego, where an estimated 300 gay active duty and retired vets marched openly.
I would go to a sexual sin parade - just sayin’. I think it would be entertaining. He’s just jealous there’s no straight pride parade. Oh wait, I forgot. That’s pretty much every single day, isn’t it? Straight people everywhere, smooching, holding hands, parading the products of their sexual acts around in strollers…
Sorry. I just can’t channel that line of reasoning, that relationships are all about flaunting sexuality.
Because it’s absurd.
The largest LGBT advocacy group in Iowa has already collected more than 1,000 signatures demanding an apology from Bob Vander Plaats, head of the conservative Christian organization The Family Leader, only 24 hours after launching the petition.
ThinkProgress released video Tuesday of Vander Plaats erupting in laughter and saying, “That’s pretty good,” after someone makes the joke: “You know what my wife says? She says: Iowa, the state where you can’t smoke a fag, but you can marry one.”
His organization created the controversial marriage pledge, which was signed by Republican presidential candidates Michele Bachmann and Rick Santorum.
The petition calls on Vander Plaats to apologize for his “hurtful and derogatory language.”
"The bullying tactics of Bob Vander Plaats and the Family Leader have gone too far," said Troy Price, One Iowa Executive Director. "The overwhelming response we have seen shows just how Vander Plaats’ actions have hurt loving, committed couples and their families across the state. This type of language has no place in the conversation about marriage. Bob Vander Plaats must apologize to the thousands of Iowans he has offended with his actions."
You know what to do, folks. Here’s the link to the petition.
Update - Okay, this is Salon right fucking now:
We got trolled, kids. Quote isn’t real, but damn if it doesn’t sound like something she’d say, huh?
Michele Bachmann to Sean Hannity on the Casey Anthony verdict
I honestly thought this quote was fake at first. Like, I just, what even is this. (via la-frida-phile)
Wait… she’s blaming Obama for the Casey Anthony verdict?!??!
I’ll tell you how, Michele. It happens when the prosecution’s entire case hinges on hearsay, circumstantial evidence and testimony like “Well, she wasn’t distraught when i saw her this one time…”. I don’t know if she did it or not, but the Obama administration has like, ZERO to do with it. It was because of lousy investigation work, lack of physical evidence, and shoddy case building. In other words, Michele, THE SYSTEM WORKED EXACTLY AS IT WAS DESIGNED TO DO. Shut up.
“who happens to be white”
I guess basically she’s saying that in Obama’s America, the courts don’t care if white children are murdered. So because we’ve elected our first black president, centuries of culturalization have been reversed and we’re now living in a black supremacist society.
This must be that primo fair-and-balanced anti-mainstream shit that brings in the big bucks for Fox.
SERIOUSLY?! What the fuck goes through her head?! I imagine it goes somethig like this: “YOU GUISE! THE GUBMINT CAN’T DO ANYTHING RIGHT EXCEPT GET AN UNAMERICAN COMMUNIST NAZI MARXIST ELITIST MUSLIM ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT ELECTED WITH THE POWER TO INFILTRATE A FLORIDA JURY IN ONE MURDER CASE!”
I’m pretty sure no one has asked her this question. [I guess I’m probably right there.] I’m also pretty sure this dog-whistling racist thinks in all caps, too. [I stand by that statement.]
John Abarr, Republican candidate for US House in Montana, defending the KKK and comparing it to the NAACP. Seriously.
This was his stance fifteen years ago. What’s his current concern? The white nationalist site White Reference summarizes it as such:
Despite severing ties with the Klan in 1997, he maintains a pro-White racial attitude, saying that the election of Barack Obama prompted him to get back into politics. “I think that the fact Obama got elected shows that the white people are starting to lose their political power,” said Abarr, who last week filed the paperwork to let him start raising money. “I am running to draw attention to the fact that white people are becoming a minority and losing our political power and way of life” …
Because of Abarr’s pro-White stance, some leading RINOs are already running for cover, including former Congressman Rick Hill, who denounced Abarr as a “racist” and opined that Republicans were founded on freedom, liberty and equal opportunity. Hill is considered a front-runner for Governor in 2012. Others weighing in on this story are Politico and the Huffington Post, loaded with the typical sampling of retarded anti-racist comments.
Anyone who argues racism is over because Obama is black, or argues that only racists notice race, etc… I’m pointing them right to this guy.
John Abarr, a 41-year-old former organizer for the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan and Republican candidate for Montana’s only US House seat. Don’t worry, the GOP isn’t supporting him. They haven’t supported anyone with the KKK for nine years.
And yes, he just used historical context to explain away lynching.
Bryan Fischer is ranting about a gay man, R. Clarke Cooper, heading up finance and fundraising for the RNC. R. Clarke Cooper is the executive director for the Log Cabin Republicans.
Fischer’s on a roll with this whole false analogy of the GLBTQ community, the GOP, and slavery. Seriously, wtf? I don’t get how this logically works - even in a bigot’s mind.
Linda Harvey, founder of Columbus, Ohio-based Mission America. Read the rest (if you must) here.
Guess what she does? That’s right, hit the metaphorical roof when marriage equality passes. Here’s her organization’s mission: Fighting against “Homosexuality, Neopaganism / Witchcraft, Fighting the “gay” Agenda in Schools, Homosexuality / Bisexuality, Witchcraft / Neopaganism, Feminist Theology / Goddess Worship, and Compromised Christianity”
"Perpetual pansexual pagan party" does have some marvelous alliteration and a catchy vibe to it, no? Someone needs to make Linda’s worst fears come true and just play some disco while holding up a banner reading "Perpetual pansexual pagan party here!" while she’s doing her radio show. Check it out, there’s plenty of public sidewalk and a Frisch’s right across the way. So win?
Pat Robertson, reminding us
again that teh gayz are gonna destroy ‘mericuh.
Same as it ever was, eh Pat? How many years have you been making this claim? Two things: First, throughout history, every civilization fails. See what I did there? No civilization will continue indefinitely. Second, Rome embraced Christianity approximately 150 years before it fell. So, Pat, by your logic Christianity is just as likely to have caused the fall of Rome.
Your move, pal.
