Bigots is as bigots does
Funny, volunteering for the "Milk" film dragged up a lot of gay history from the 70s, and just the other day Sean Penn, performing as Harvey Milk in 1978, mentioned the Anita Bryants of the world and how they wanted to deny gay people their rights.
Well, today there's another woman spewing the same kind of ignorant, fear mongering vile as Anita 30 years ago: Oklahoma State Representative Sally Kern. Recently, her remarks to a small GOP group were recorded and released on the internet. Her speach was loaded with Archie Bunker ignorance, including propegating the long disproven "gays want to recruit your children" bullshit.
Youtube video of her words.
She even went so far as to claim that homosexuality is this country's greatest threat, "even more so than terrorists or Islam.” She said it's "just a fact” that "the homosexuality agenda is destroying this nation.”
Conicidentally, I'd recently reproduced an old anti-Anita poster as a possible T-short for extra-ing. I updated it for the modern age.
How far we've come...how far we still have to go.
