Maine conservatives form new super PAC in opposition to 'sodomy based marriage'

Ah yes, trying to campaign on disgust and fear. It’s been done, y’all:

Ooh, they even have a voter pledge too!

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.

He’s also Ron Paul’s former Iowa campaign director.

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!

There’s one big fact that’s not backed up. There is no proof that there’s ever anything like a gay, lesbian or bisexual or transgendered child, or teen or human. One of the other things you’re gonna see as I mentioned is a big campaign GLSEN’s gonna roll out this year calling for ‘respect,’ respect! Not just for people, but for homosexual lifestyle. The PR campaign to hold up gay as a good thing: the lifestyle, not the person, because there are no such humans.

Which has destroyed and ended the life of more people? Terrorism attack here in America or HIV/AIDS? In the last twenty years, fifteen to twenty years, we’ve had maybe three terrorist attacks on our soil with a little over 5,000 people regrettably losing their lives. In the same time frame, there have been hundreds of thousands who have died because of having AIDS. So which one’s the biggest threat? And you know, every day our young people…they’re bombarded with ‘homosexuality is normal and natural.’ It’s something they have to deal with every day. Fortunately we don’t have to deal with a terrorist attack every day, and that’s what I mean. It’s more dangerous, and yes I think that it’s also more dangerous because it will tear down the moral fiber of this nation.

Oklahoma State Rep. Sally Kern, proving once again she has new lows to which she can sink.

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.

REPORT PAGE: Liberalism " The Assholes of America "

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.

Representative Doug Lamborn (R - Colo.) Says Dealing With Obama On Debt 'Like Getting Stuck To A Tar Baby'

I wish I were exaggerating:

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.

This is what’s going to happen all across the country the more homosexuality is promoted by the armed services. I would venture to say that someday, we’ll see servicemen marching in uniform in a sexual sin parade like what we saw here in San Diego. So the fact is homosexuality, in other words sin, does not stay in its closet; it always wants to boast and be prideful.

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.

Iowa LGBT group targets Bob Vander Plaats for laughing at ‘fag’ joke

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.

Well, I’ve been visiting all the primary states, and I’ve been talking to people, and people all over the place are asking me, why, in Barack Obama’s America, someone who murders a baby who happens to be white doesn’t get punished.

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?!??!

(via squee-gee)

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.

(via the-madame-hatter)

“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.

(via grumbelina)


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.]

It’s not any different than the NAACP. The Klan is basically a civil rights organization that stands up for the rights of white people. The Montana Human Rights Network likes to blow everything out of proportion.

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.

I can’t agree with lynching anybody for any reason, but that was a different time in our history… We already have a black president, and I’m not sure when we’ll have a white president elected again.

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.

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.

This ‘freedom’ will include much more than a perpetual pansexual pagan party. It will, and already does, include libel, slander, intimidation, corruption of youth, revolt in congregations, suppression of parental rights, revision of language, disease, loss of employment and loss of life. Oh, and did I mention public sex, the porn explosion and public nudity? Welcome to entitlement sex.

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?

In history there’s never been a civilization ever in history that has embraced homosexuality and turned away from traditional fidelity, traditional marriage, traditional child-rearing, and has survived. There isn’t one single civilization that has survived that openly embraced homosexuality. So you say, ‘what’s going to happen to America?’ Well if history is any guide, the same thing’s going to happen to us.

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.
