An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Sometimes, you can find some of the most interesting, or in this case semi-amusing, things on the internet. Twitchy is a great site for perusing for such items. I found this ‘tweet’ of particular interest:
Seriously? Heh. I’d never heard of this guy, so of course, I had to check out some of the links provided by other tweets in the Twitchy post. And sure enough….one of the links led me to the LeftPo, who had this to say:
“Mark Clayton is associated with a known hate group in Washington, D.C., and the Tennessee Democratic Party disavows his candidacy, will not do anything to promote or support him in any way, and urges Democrats to write-in a candidate of their choice in November,” read the statement.
Clayton is vice president of the Public Advocate of the United States, a Virginia-based group that advocates a conservative social agenda. The Southern Poverty Law Center calls it a hate group. Its opposition to gay rights is extreme: “GAY MUPPETS CONDEMNED BY PUBLIC ADVOCATE AND NOW SENATOR JIM DEMINT,” “Gay Curriculum Already Out Of Closet And Into Some City Classrooms To Millions In New York” and “Eating Chicken Declared A Hate Crime Pro-homosexual Socialist Dictators Attack Private Companies just like their President Barack Obama Attacks Private Companies” read recent press release headlines.
Ya know…..when a HATE group like SPLC calls something a ‘hate group’, odds are, they aren’t a hate group…they just disagree with the push towards the cesspool of current American society. Of course, ANYONE disagreeing with the evil of the leftist policies are labeled a hate group. Reckon you could lump me in with that label as well, even though it’s not hate in my heart, I just don’t believe acting contrary to God’s Law is a real bright move. Apparently, any group who advocates life, traditional marriage or any sort of family values, as proscribed in the Bible, is considered hateful by the left.
So, this guy wins the Democrat primary, and now, the Dems disown him. Did they not bother to find out anything about him? If he is a volunteer for a group that has OBVIOUS conservative leanings, a rather large, fairly well known group, wouldn’t they find it just a bit unusual for a CONSERVATIVE to run on the socialist…er…I mean Democrat ticket?
Sorry….I just find this so amusing! I think I’m going to check him out a bit more, and who knows…..I just might vote for him m’self.
