Message of hated should NEVER be tolerated and a call to action

Meet Oklahoma State House Rep Sally Kern otherwise known as the latest anti-gay homobigoted jackass to be caught red-handed putting her foot in her mouth.

Following in the footsteps of Danbury's cable access talking head bigoted hate-mongers and ultra anti-immigrant political boneheads whose true colors were exposed to the public, unaware that her conversation was bring recorded, Rep. Kern let her hair down and went on one of the most disgusting anti-gay rants ever.

Pam's House Blend has the disgusting details:
Mother of god, this is horrible. We nominate to the patheon of homo hate Oklahoma State Rep. Sally Kern (sallykern@okhouse.gov). She didn't know that she was being recorded in a meeting, so we get the a nice insight about what she thinks of her gay and lesbian constituents. Perhaps she doesn't think she has any.

About 30 seconds into this homobigoted, fact-free, BS screed, Rep. Kern actually says how she doesn't hate gays (of course not!), then proceeds to continue on her tirade of filth.



Some tidbits:

Studies show, no society that has totally embraced homosexuality has lasted for more than, you know, a few decades. . .

I honestly think it's the biggest threat our nation has, even more so than terrorism or Islam.

They want to get them into the government schools so they can indoctrinate them.

[...]

They are going after our young children, as young as two years of age, to try to teach them that the homosexual lifestyle is an acceptable lifestyle.

You know, gays are infiltrating city councils...did you know that the city council of Eureka Springs is now controlled by gays -- they are winning elections.

One of my colleagues said We don't have a gay problem in our community...well you know what, that is so dumb. If you have cancer in your little toe, do you just say that I'm going to forget about it since the rest of you is fine? It spreads! This stuff is deadly and it is spreading. It will destroy our young people and it will destroy this nation.

Just as in the case of Danbury former Majority Leader, the anti-immigrant Pauline Basso and Oklahoma native and Danbury Planning Commission member Joel Urice's racially insensitive anti-immigrant emails, the backlash from Kern's remarks are overwhelming.
Members of the metro's gay community are finding it hard to believe Kern also says homosexuality is a bigger threat than terrorism.

"What she's saying is outrageous, and completely a betrayal of the public trust for someone who is elected to a public office," Reverend Scott Jones of the Cathedral of Hope said.

[...]

Reverend Jones says Kern's rant is filled with everything but the truth. "Historical errors, psychological errors, scriptural errors, and just one thing after another that she makes in that speech," Jones said.

A number of those attending say they plan to write, e-mail and call Representative Kern's office first thing Monday morning and they're urging the rest of America to do the same.
Please help us let Rep. Kern know that we heard her message out and clear by signing up at the Victory Fund's website.

...I wonder of Rep. Kern's response to her stupidity will be better than Danbury's own political cowboy from "The Sooner State"?
