Angry Gays Make Sally Kern Fear for Life

Oh Sally- what makes you think we'd even waste our time? It'll be quite enough to see you voted out of office.

Quote:
Oklahoma state representative Sally Kern, who has called gays more dangerous than terrorists, apparently means that literally — she recently said she believes her antigay stances could put her life in jeopardy.

Kern, appearing Monday on the conservative religious radio show WallBuilders Live, told hosts David Barton and Rick Green that “fear gripped my whole body” when she realized she was receiving angry emails from gay people after a video of her remarks about gays and terrorists was posted online in March 2008.

Green commented that her reaction was likely “physical fear” rather than merely “political fear,” and she responded that she and her husband “asked ourselves the question, are we willing to even lose our lives over this?”

You tell a group of people that they're worse than terrorists and they get mad? Who woulda thunk it?

At first I was surprised, but then I reminded myself that this happened in the US.

Has anyone actually threatened her? Or is she basically just paranoid?

"Boys. Bring out the mascara."

I can see how that can make anyone terrified.

And one of them is living in fear for her life-style.

She might be forced to actually get a job, and work for a living!!

Best comment in the thread.

Seriously, she might be trying to give her outlandish claim some creedence - say that Teh Gheys are dangerous, then back that up by saying they're after you....

No, nevermind - that sounds even kookier than her original position. Carry on.

If she "accidentally" tripped and "unfortunately" broke her neck I wouldn't feel bad.

Good grief. Terrorists?

Society should progress, not regress. We need to clean out the cache, because we've got a serious memory leak taking place.

It's time to a reboot, and update the system to The American Dream v2.0., the new and improved operating system that actually enables everyone to enjoy life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Sally, how about those terrorist conservatives bombing abortion clinics (including one in your district in 1995)?

When homosexuals refer to "da bomb" you realize that's not a reference to an explosive device, right?

You know what? Just the title made me laugh.

For some reason a image of a whole lot of guys shouting "Its not faaaaaaaaabulous!" really loudly at some middle aged women popped into my head.

She's insane. That's really the only way to look at it.

This should be a spin off of Angry Birds.

Angry Gays: Political Edition

Then you have a bunch of gay guys in purple leotards that you trampoline towards a GOP tower with Sally Kern on top.

I've held off for a day, but it's time.

Isn't this one of the bogy-men issues that you-know-who warned his people about?

I really wanted to use 'back door' in my post but I don't want to get banned.




I wonder where this 'fear' comes from? Michelle Bachmann made a similar claim of fearing for her life when she was 'kidnapped' by lesbians. I almost think that it's some kind of sexual fantasy designed to play well with the knuckle draggers. After all, Sally's from Oklahoma...
