Satan Sides With Michigan RNC Vice Chairman



When you're running for any kind of office, it's always best to tell the truth, speak your mind and let people know where you stand. And when you're elected to office, it's helpful to know what you're doing and how you're serving us.
From HuffPo:

A new candidate for a Michigan seat on the Republican National Committee wants gays "purged" from the GOP and claims homosexuality is a "perversion" created by Satan himself.  Mary Helen Sears of Houghton County in the state's Upper Peninsula, elected vice chair of the Michigan Republican Party's 1st District last year, posted a rant in April on the Schoolcraft County GOP website -- preceded by a warning asking readers to "please use your discretion before taking any decisions based on the information in this blog."

Gee, how considerate of Ms. Sears to offer such a warning. We wouldn't want anyone to get the wrong impression of how she feels in this or any other issue. Face issues head on, I'm sure she always says.

"How do you handle a hungry man? The Manhandlers." That's the old ad slogan for Campbell's Soup. But that was way back in the mid '70s. We're in the 2024 generation. What does the vice chair of the Michigan Republican Party have to say now?

In the post, Sears claimed that homosexuals prey on children, argued that "Satan uses homosexuality to attack the living space of the Holy Spirit" and advocated that Republicans "as a party should be purging this perversion and send them to a party with a much bigger tent."

Where are the looney bin keepers and white-suited men when you need them? Can you believe this woman is a GOP member? On top of that she's a gay basher? And an ignorant hater?

Sadly she's not alone. Take Dave Agema, a former Michigan state lawmaker who has regularly made anti-gay comments and has been condemned by fellow Republicans, including Gov. Rick Snyder. He's also serving on the Michigan Republican National Committee.

Here I thought it was just West Virginia that's suffering the ill effects of tainted water. Surely there much be some leakage of some kind of crazy juice or insane sauce up in Michigan.

Ms. Sears is up in arms over the seeming tolerance of gays in our society. And the same with communism. She's attacking the higher education leaders as well:

...wrote that Communist college professors were indoctrinating young people and claimed that Charles Darwin's evolutionary theory "gave rise to Hitler’s Third Reich, Mussolini’s Italy and Stalin’s Russia."

She's lumped communism into the ills and dangers following any of us who dare allow gays to roam freely, preying on our young along with college professors who are out to corrupt our older children's minds. Paranoid, much?

"If the GOP continues down this trend and stand for perversions and the daily social fad ... The GOP will be truly dead and Satan will have had his day," Sears wrote.

It's at times like this when you can't help wonder who left the door open to the insane asylum.


Indoctrinated or Educated?


Steve LoneganThe front-runner for the Republican nomination for New Jersey's open U.S. Senate seat, former Bogota Mayor Steve Lonegan, told a tea party audience Monday that young voters were "indoctrinated" against the United States of 40 years ago.  From an article by John Celock:

When Lonegan was asked how he'd reach young voters he shared, "Don't be so disturbed that it's more older people who remember what America was 40 years ago and want to keep it that way, rather than the younger people who have been indoctrinated."

Gee, Steve, did it ever occur to you that if you remember America of 40 years ago that you aren't a young voter.  So to say they've been indoctrinated, I think you're mixing up your verbs -- you mean educated.

He gave the conservatives and constitutionalists in the crowd plenty to applaud. He said American freedoms are "under assault like never before."

He's right.  His ultra-conservative cohorts have been waging a war on women's rights, health care, education, clean air, Social Security, Medicare, voter's rights, immigration reform, student loans, et al.

He criticized what he called the "commie ... I mean common core curriculum," a federal effort to standardize educational requirements.

He's right again.  Liberals and progressives are fighting a common core curriculum -- the one that teaches creationism instead of evolution, denies science, and insists on bible based studies in public school.  They rail against laws that mandate that LIES about the risks of future fertility in women if they have an abortion (See North Carolina's mandated health education bill for 7th grade).

He said Obama's reluctance to approve the Keystone Pipeline System, to bring oil from Canada to the United States, is "destroying our access to real, affordable energy."

Bingo.  He's hit the trifecta... only he's missing a few key points on the Keystone Pipeline.  One: the risk factor.  And two: No oil that flows through the pipeline is guaranteed to the US.  It's to be sold overseas by Canada.  So the pipeline, like a certain bridge in Alaska, is a pipeline to nowhere as far as America is concerned. We take the risks and we reap no benefits once it's up and running.

This whackjob really has his facts down.  No wonder he's going to lose big to Cory Booker.  It's not that Booker's so great, it's that Lonegan's so inept with facts and the facility to understand the world around him.  Or even more locally, in his own state. The former Bogota mayor has taken a series of positions to the right of most Garden State Republicans, including opposing federal aid for Hurricane Sandy relief last year unless other funding projects were taken out of the package.  I wonder if Governor Christie is going to give him a hug like he gave Obama.

Oh, just so you'll know, Booker is the prohibitive favorite against Lonegan in recent polls.  And that's something I think you can take to the bank.


Man shoots and kills himself during gun-safety class at a gun range

Another "responsible gun owner" causes human death, this time his own, from a self-inflicted gun shot to the head. And how ironically sad is it that it happened at a gun "safety" class.

Brian J. Parry is believed to have shot himself in the head with a pistol Sunday during a class at West Coat Armory, a gun range and dealer with outlets in Bellevue and Issaquah.

It gets worse. According to the report, this happened in front of more than a dozen people, and several children also witnessed the shooting. That won't scar them for life at all.

Participants paid $75 for three hours of instruction meant to teach students how to load and use pistols and revolvers.

Someone tell me again how more guns are a good thing? And why children should ever be around them?

VIDEO: Little League team raises funds by raffling off AR-15 rifle

family values my ass

Nothing says family values better than an Illinois Little League raffling off AR-15 military-style rifles like the one Adam Lanza used to massacre six-year-olds at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, and by the Aurora, Colorado shooter.


The Atwood-Hammond group partnered with the local armory for the raffle, which launched on Tuesday. "It has been going gangbusters," Charidy Butcher, co-owner of the Atwood Armory, told “My phone has been ringing nonstop since 4:30 this morning. It’s just been crazy."

Butcher said she's received calls from people as far away as Washington state wanting to enter the June 29 drawing. A ticket costs $20.

"Considered a deadly weapon by some"? Did I hear that correctly? So it's not "considered" a deadly weapon by others, just by some? What else could it be used for, a paper weight?

Think Progress:

[G]un manufacturers have worked hard to associate assault weapons with children. The industry has released ads and articles encouraging children to ask for an AR-15 for Christmas. In internal studies, manufacturers were advised to “start them young” and “target programs toward youth 12 years old and younger.”

Here is the ad that TP is referring to: Ad: Hey kids! “Who knows? Maybe you’ll find a Bushmaster AR-15 under your tree some frosty Christmas morning!”
