Three GOP Presidential Candidates Sign Pledge To Investigate LGBT Community
Get ready for another round of McCarthyism. Mitt Romney, Michele Bachmann, and Rick Santorum have all signed a pledge to form a commission to investigate the LGBT community if elected President.
This pledge was created by the National Organization For Marriage, and they have a history of extreme views against homosexuals and anyone who votes to extend marriage rights to them.
The pledge reads as follows.
I, [candidate name], pledge to the American people that if elected President, I will:
[…] establish a presidential commission on religious liberty to investigate and document reports of Americans who have been harassed or threatened for exercising key civil rights to organize, to speak, to donate or to vote for marriage and to propose new protections, if needed.
In other words, the extreme right wing is going to persecute homosexuals on a whole new level if they have power after the 2012 Election. Homosexuals and supporters of marriage equality will be intimidated, interrogated, and stripped of their right to speak freely. The religious right wing has been allowed to push their un-American and unconstitutional agenda for far too long. Americans must push back. If we continue to do nothing, we could all be persecuted by this fanatical group.

Also, add being stripped of our right to free speech over the Internet, right of assembly, right of redressing our government, right of expression, protecting from being searched and seized, right to trial by jury, right to be protected from cruel and unusual punishment, and so on. 
These people are egotistical monsters! America will not last much longer with any of these three in charge!!

You can’t be fucking serious. This isn’t far off from what we recently saw in Russia over the LGBT community. Is that the kinda America that these republicans want to live in? A America modeled after Russia? I don’t think so.

These three still think Russia is a big place where people have funny names. I don’t even think they could explain the use of patronyms.

Let’s reiterate what we just witnessed: a contender and one-time frontrunner for the nomination of the Republican Party declared that America should eliminate food stamps, Medicare and the expansion of Social Security, before stating that America should emulate China’s social safety net. And the Republican audience cheered her.

At some point the pearl clutchers and bipartisan fetishists are going to acknowledge that there is a political civil war in this country, that the right wing is going off the rails at an accelerated pace, and that these people represent a grave threat to democracy should they ever take power again.

It’s not just the Bachmanns of the world are living in a dystopic fantasyland. The GOP base is living there, too.

Michele Bachmann is the Lennie…

huffandstuff:

Anyone want to explain that to me? Are they kidding?

The meeting with Bachmann they’re trying to set up has to be for some secret Candid Camera-style sketch comedy sting. Right?
