Michigan Committeeman: ‘Gays want healthcare because of AIDS’


In an effort to unify Republicans with members of the Tea Party, a Michigan congressman expressed his views on traditional marriage, further isolating those in same-sex relationships. 

During the Berrien County Republican Party Holiday Reception on Thursday, former state rep and Michigan national GOP committeeman Dave Agema encouraged members of both parties to unite against same-sex rights.

Congressman calls for shutdown, leads march against it

What political party calls for a shutdown and then gets upset at the institutions affected by it? The grand ole Tea Party does. What was supposed to be a march in opposition of Obamacare, turned into an all-out bashing of the president.

Veterans and anti-Obama demonstrators occupied White House and other landmarks Sunday in protest of monuments being closed due to the shutdown.

The “Million Vet March on Memorials” rally was headlined by Sen. Ted Cruz who advocated for the government’s closing.

The Tea Party’s Uber-Racist ‘Obama Phone’ Ad, And The Black Man Behind It

A new political ad, brought to you by The Tea Party Victory Fund and currently running in white Ohio counties, definitely ranks up there amongst the most racist ads we’ve ever seen.

The ad features an excited Black woman, discussing a free cell phone she received from a federal program.

The ad clearly aims to play up the “welfare queen” stereotype.

From NewsOne:

“In the video, someone asks if the Black woman has an Obama phone. She responds, ‘Yes everybody in Cleveland, you know minorities got [sic] Obama phone.’ Keep Obama in president [sic]. You know! He gave us a phone! He gonna do more!’

STUDY: Racists, Right-Wingers Have LOW IQs

This explains a lot, doesn’t it?

According to researchers at Brock University in Ontario, Canada, children with low intelligence are more likely to be prejudiced and racist as adults. This leads to a vicious cycle, since low-intelligence adults are more likely to gravitate towards socially conservative ideologies that stress hierarchy and resistance to change, thereby contributing to existing prejudice.

In other words, racists and right wingers tend to have low IQs. They’re dumb.

VIDEO: Obama Campaign Calls Out Koch Brothers In New TV Ad

The Obama Reelection Capmaign has unleashed their first television ad of the 2012 election season.

Check it out below.

Dealing largely with Obama’s record on clean energy and ethics, the 30-second spot is also notable for calling out the Koch Brothers, “the wealthy conservative industrialists who have funded the Tea Party and anti-gay, anti-labor politicians such as Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker.” The ad does not mention them by name, instead referring to “secretive oil billionaires” who attack the President with nonfactual ads.

No, the Government Does Not Want Your Guns

Remember when last month NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre talked about the,”massive Obama conspiracy to deceive voters and hide his true intentions to destroy the Second Amendment in our country”? Yeah, I’m thinking he was a little off. Sadly, paranoid gun talk and fear is how the NRA recruits new members, but his whole the “government wants our guns” myth is being shattered by the real non violent movement that started with Occupy Wall Street.

Hey, remember when the Tea Party folks were excising their “right to bear arms” by showing up where the President was speaking strapped and even went as far as marching on Washington with their guns? And remember when the secret service and police tear gassed, harassed, beat and arrested those Tea Party protestors? You don’t? That’s because it never happened. If the government was really about taking away guns they had a perfect opportunity to crack down on a group of obviously delusional individuals, packing heavy artillery, and showing up in areas of high security. If President Obama wanted to hatch some “conspiracy” he had a perfect opportunity at that time.
