Yet another right-wing whackjob emerges from the cave





A new candidate for a Michigan seat on the Republican National Committee wants gays "purged" from the GOP and claims homosexuality is a "perversion" created by Satan himself.

Mary Helen Sears of Houghton County in the state's Upper Peninsula, elected vice chair of the Michigan Republican Party's 1st District last year, posted a rant in April on the Schoolcraft County GOP website -- preceded by a warning asking readers to "please use your discretion before taking any decisions based on the information in this blog."

In the post, Sears claimed that homosexuals prey on children, argued that "Satan uses homosexuality to attack the living space of the Holy Spirit" and advocated that Republicans "as a party should be purging this perversion and send them to a party with a much bigger tent."

Michigan's representatives on the Republican National Committee have lately stirred other controversy, mostly due to Dave Agema, a former state lawmaker who has regularly made anti-gay comments and has been condemned by fellow Republicans, including Gov. Rick Snyder. .........................(more)

Because I sure as hell don't feel like I evolved here.

3. I love her! Let's make her the face of the GOP!

The big problem with Democrats is that we let Republicans off the hook by promoting the "Teaparty". They need to own these people! She is a republican just like Bill Krystal, Chris Christie and every other Puke who has disassociated themselves frome their kooky base when it's convenient (most of the time).

They are all one party...that is the way they vote!

5. Adolf Hitler would have been a Republican in today's whacked-out GOP, yes?

8. The GOP sympathized with Hitler in the 1930's

Check out the German American Bund.

7. Scary stuff!

In between Detroit and Ann Arbor, Michigan seems a lot like Indiana.

No offense to Michigan!
