Sally Kern Is A Bigoted, Vile Excuse For A Human Being

Sally Kern is a bigoted, vile excuse for a human being. Oh, and she's a Republican too. Big shocker there!! According to this bitch, gays are a "bigger threat than terrorism".

Republican lawmaker says gays are bigger threat than terrorists

Oklahoma House representative Sally Kern is under fire after an audio recording was leaked of her comparing gays to terrorists and telling fellow Republicans the “homosexual agenda is destroying this nation.” The recording and accompanying YouTube video have sparked outrage from many, but Kern defends her words, telling the press: “What I’m saying, I believe in.”

The YouTube video posted this weekend by the Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund featured Kern speaking out against gays to a group of Republicans who had invited her to express her views about homosexuality. Leaked audio of the speech is accompanied by images of people holding signs such as “Words matter,” “I am listening” and “You don’t represent me.”

In the speech, given privately to a group of about 50 Republicans, Kern says homosexuality, “according to God’s word, that is not the right kind of lifestyle. It has deadly consequences for those people involved in it.” Although she claims she is “not gay-bashing,” Kern continues by saying gays “have more suicides… there’s more illness, their life spans are shorter… studies show that no society that has totally embraced homosexuality has lasted more than, you know, a few decades.”

Kern also accuses homosexuals of pushing a “gay agenda” and trying to “indoctrinate” children as young as 2-years-old through tolerance education and gay-straight alliances. “This stuff—it’s deadly,” Kern says, “and it’s spreading, and it will destroy our young people. It will destroy this nation.”

The infiltration of gays into city councils also seems to be of major concern to Kern, who speaks out on this perceived problem at length. Kern said that city councils from Pittsburgh to West Palm Beach, FL are under the “control” of gays.

The Oklahoma representative’s hate speech extends several times into another sensitive arena as well, religion. A staunch Christian, Kern says in the speech that “Not everybody’s lifestyle is equal, just like not all religions are equal” and believes gays are an even bigger threat than “terrorism or Islam, which I think is a big threat.”

I love how "Christians" throw around "facts", but they have zero evidence to support their "facts". For example, Kern claims that "studies show that no society that has totally embraced homosexuality has lasted more than, you know, a few decades." Really? What studies would those be? Who conducted those studies? Where is the evidence proving that such studies were actually done? Where are the people who participated in these studies? Oh wait, they would be dead I guess.

Another example of the ridiculous hate spewing forth from this bitch's mouth was her comment that homosexuals are, "pushing a 'gay agenda' and trying to 'indoctrinate' children as young as 2-years-old through tolerance education and gay-straight alliances." Where is the evidence that supports her notion of a "gay agenda"? Where is the evidence that supports her notion of "indoctrination"? I didn't realize that 2 year olds went to school, but okay!! We should be teaching our children about accepting people for who they are. We should be teaching our children to love people no matter their race, religion, sexuality, etc.

She's right about one thing. We shouldn't be teaching tolerance education because I sure as hell wouldn't teach any of my children to tolerate someone who is as ignorant, vile, and bigoted as this bitch is. My children would be taught to stand up for themselves against this type of hatred.

Here's how another site reported the story.

Oklahoma legislator's anti-gay comments stir hostile reaction

OKLAHOMA CITY -- A Republican member of the Oklahoma Legislature has received death threats since telling a political group that "the homosexual agenda is just destroying this nation" and poses a bigger threat to the U.S. than terrorism or Islam.

"I'm not gay-bashing. But according to God's word that is not the right kind of lifestyle," Rep. Sally Kern of Oklahoma City said during an appearance before a group of Republicans. Her comments were recorded and posted on the video sharing Web site YouTube on Friday.

"Studies show no society that has totally embraced homosexuality has lasted more than a few decades," Kern says in the recorded comments. "It is not a lifestyle that is good for this nation."

On Monday, Kern said her comments were edited and taken out of context. Kern said they were directed at wealthy, politically active homosexuals who are contributing money to gay and lesbian candidates for public office in Oklahoma and other states.

"I was talking about an agenda. I was not talking about individuals," said Kern, the wife of a Baptist minister. "They have the right to choose that lifestyle. They do not have the right to force it down our throat.

"I have never said hate speech against anybody. I would never do that."

Kern said she has received more than 3,000 e-mails and hundreds of telephone calls since her comments were posted online. She said a few supported her comments but that most condemned them and that some contained death threats and obscenities.

"I hear what you said and you should be killed...," said one.

"You honestly think that homosexuality is a greater threat than terrorism?" said another. "How someone as petulant and vile as yourself got elected to office, I will never understand."

The only openly gay member of the state Legislature, Rep. Al McAffrey, D-Oklahoma City, said Kern's comments have alarmed gay voters in Kern's district and elsewhere in the nation.

"It saddens me that we hear bigotry from our representatives," said McAffrey, who embraced Kern as the two lawmakers discussed her comments about gays in a state Capitol hallway Monday morning.

"There is not a gay agenda," McAffrey told The Associated Press afterward. "There are a lot of people who have money who are willing to support progressive candidates."

McAffrey said he is a father and a grandfather. "And I happen to be gay. I think we need to look at individuals."

In her recorded comments, Kern expressed concern that gay candidates "are winning elections" and control city councils in Arkansas, Maryland and other states.

A former teacher, Kern also said gays are teaching young public school children that their lifestyle is acceptable. "We're not teaching facts and knowledge anymore. We're teaching indoctrination," Kern said.

"We have the gay-straight alliance coming into our schools. Kids are getting involved in these groups, their lives are being ruined," she said. "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.

"This stuff is deadly and it's spreading and it will destroy our young people, it will destroy this nation."

In a response to one e-mail, Kern said she was primarily concerned about "the aggressive movement" to support gay candidates across the nation and in Oklahoma, where a gay candidate is seeking a statewide office.

Jim Roth, a member of the Oklahoma Corporation Commission who is openly gay, is seeking a full six-year term on the commission that regulates utilities and the oil and gas industry.

"As a public official I have taken an oath to serve 100 percent of our citizens and I only wish that Representative Kern would honor the same spirit of our democracy," said Roth, a Democrat and former Oklahoma County commissioner who was appointed to the statewide position by Gov. Brad Henry last year.

"My focus is on serving the citizens of Oklahoma, not on responding to the rantings of an angry legislator. We all have a duty to serve all people," Roth said. "The politics of division and demagoguery only steal the future from what our state needs for everyone's sake."

Wow, what a big surprise that this bitch would use the famous "my words were taken out of context" defense. Her words weren't taken out of context. She knows exactly what she said. She knows exactly what she meant. And so does everyone else. She meant every single thing she said in the most hateful way possible.

It doesn't sadden me that this is the bigotry that people are faced with. It pisses me off!! This is the kind of shit that creates hate crimes against gay people in the first place. This is the kind of shit that allows it to continue. I bet that if she saw a gay person being beaten, tortured, or murdered, she would walk by without even a second glance. Her response would probably be, "well that fag deserved it".

She can go fuck herself, and so can anyone else that shares her beliefs. People like her are the lowest of the lowest scum on Earth.
