terror threat: terrible

Oklahoma Lady Adds Gays To Her Personal Terrorist Watch List

Do you remember Oklahoma state Rep. Sally Kern? She just loves those gays, if by “loves” we mean, wants to send them to Gitmo, for terrorism. And since it’s almost the Very Special 10th Anniversary of 9/11 and all, it seems she figured this would be a good time to remind America of her cause, which is to explain that the gays are worse than the Muslin terrorists, because gay people are out doing their glitter jihad on Jesus every single day.

In 2008, Kern said homosexuality is “the biggest threat our nation has, even more so than terrorism or Islam,” and called it a cancer that is “spreading” across America and “will destroy our young people.”

Now Right Wing Watch reports that a few days ago, she spoke with Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality to promote her new book, The Stoning of Sally Kern. She repeated her claim that homosexuality is “more dangerous” than terrorist attacks because unlike terrorism, we have to deal with it every day.

KERN: And you know, every day our young people…they’re bombarded with ‘homosexuality is normal and natural.’ It’s something they have to deal with every day. Fortunately we don’t have to deal with a terrorist attack every day, and that’s what I mean. It’s more dangerous, and yes I think that it’s also more dangerous because it will tear down the moral fiber of this nation.

Kern went on to say that homosexuality is eroding the “principles of religion and morality” our nation was founded on and “without virtue this nation will not survive.”

Blah blah, happy anniversary to this lady, who will be celebrating alone, weeping over here 9/11 memorial coin collection. [ThinkProgress]

          Well hell! There has to be some fun in the teaching biz. There sure wasn't any money. The article should have gone on about how the class chose a student to be "it" and how the class went outside and gathered up stones and, well, you know… Nothing like hands on stuff.

  1. mavenmaven

    She's married to a pastor. Does her obsession with homosexuality reflect a "little problem" in her home?

      1. poncho_pilot

        being Klingon he probably likes Shakespeare and you know what that means? that's right: transvestites.

    1. Pristine_ODummy

      Her son's gay, and her husband has ties to the KKK. I suspect her obsession with homosexuality reflects a whole fucking shitload of problems in her home.

        1. Pristine_ODummy

          This makes me feel like a bit of a blogwhore, so, disclaimer, this is MY blog.

          However, I linked to the interview with young Jesse Kern. The rumour about her husband having ties to the KKK was blogged by Pam Spaulding (I think) back when she was posting at Firedoglake, and the post is still up, but the actual information doesn't seem to be there. I believe it was also circulating ad Democratic Underground, but I distinctly remember it from when I was blogging regularly. She's quite a regular at various anti-gay pits.

      1. flamingpdog

        Great! Now she's going to have to be President so she can have a Presidential library afterward to hold all these (unsold) books about her.

  2. KeepFnThatChicken

    Someone has to remind us what Leviticus says. After all, everyone else is listening to what the fossils are saying.

    1. Pristine_ODummy

      I'd rather take her out in a furry with a syringe on top, if you get my drift.*

      Christian terrorist Timothy McVeigh was born in Lockport NY. He hated Oklahoma as much as everybody else, apparently. (No offense, DustBowlBlues)

    The only reason you "have to deal with homosexuality every day" is because you're a closet case. And not only are you in denial about your sexuality, but you're also in denial thinking that your idiotic culture war is even winnable at this point.

    1. JustPixelz

      The reason you have to "deal with" homosexuality is because these men and women are our fellow citizens. America is the people who show up. The show up for work, school, volunteer. They show up in the military, the police, the fire department (and the fire department calendars). They raise their kids and watch out for their neighbors.

      The lesson I choose to take from 9/11 is not the paranoid fantasy that "they" are destroying us. It's that people are good. On that day, they called home to say "I love you". They helped strangers escape the danger — sometimes dying in the effort. They fought back and made God work like the devil to take their lives. And they didn't check each other's religion, sexual preference, political party or immigration status.

      1. Steverino247

        That was wonderful. That paragraph should be on the memorials and printed in every book of quotations from now on.

  4. ShaveTheWhales

    The Stoning of Sally Kern, eh? There are only so many possible interpretations:

    1. She's not a running back, so not that one.

    2. If people had actually been chucking stones at her, I'd think it would have made the news, so probably not.

    3. She has accepted hemp as her personal savior? Pretty much all that's left.

    Except, of course

    4. Profit!!!!!

      "The Stoning of Sally Kern"

      If she works on the Sabbat, it would be our duty to stone her to death, according to the Bible….

  5. Guppy06

    Mosaic morality has a lot of "give to the poor, support widows and orphans, and don't oppress aliens," but none of that wins Republican primaries.

  6. Troglodeity

    Every day, our young people grow fatter and fatter as they're bombarded with McDonald's burgers and fries.

    So McDonald's is more dangerous than a terrorist attack.

      1. Geminisunmars

        I first read "Cummingtonite is a metamorphic amphibole" as Cummingtonite is a metaphoric ambihole and thought I'd reached a clever parody site.

  7. fxgeorges

    What infuriates me more than our president siding with ‘Muslim Terrorist nations’ over Israel is the fact that American Jews vote overwhelmingly for him. 2012 will be no exception because American Jews care little for Israel.

    1. gurukalehuru

      fxgeorges may be wildly OT, but there is a nugget of truth contained. An American politician COULD stand up and say "Fuck Israel!" and still garner a healthy percentage of the Jewish vote. We are not all Likudniks.

    2. GregComlish

      You know what infuriates me? Ideologically-driven morons who goad Israel into taking the most belligerent, self-destructive stance towards their neighbors from the comfort of their own home.

  8. Spurning Beer

    America's moral fiber used to be dacron polyester, or maybe canvas, but now it's turning into Spandex, or even lamé.

    This is NOT what the Founding Fathers would have considered "fabulous."

    Oh wait. They were all about silk waistcoats and stockings.

    1. Native_of_SL_UT

      I can't wait for America's moral fiber to be made out of that Sham-wow material so I won't have to get out of this chair to pee.

        1. flamingpdog

          DAMN, my keyboard and monitor really appreciate the fact that I didn't have any fluid in my mouth when I read that.


      The Founding Fathers would be willing to cut any wasteful federal spending, as long as we can strengthen the Victoria's Secret Service.

    Send 'em all to Glit-Mo.

    The Navy Seals aren't enough. Send in all the Village People.

    She is another who "hates the sin, but loves the sinner." NO WAIT. She hates both.

    When she talks about saving our asses, she means it literally.

  10. x111e7thst

    "KERN: We have heard tonight already that in prison there’s more black people. Yes, there are, and that’s tragic, it’s tragic that our prisons here in Oklahoma, what are they, 99% occupancy? But the other side of the story, perhaps this is something we need to consider: is this just because they are black that they’re in prison or because they don’t want to work hard in school?

    Always hiding in the woodpile when they should be in school, those black people.

  11. JustPixelz

    What a sensitive and heartfelt slap in the face to people who lost loved ones on 9/11! That gays and lesbians — who seldom crash airplanes in to buildings or strap on suicide bomb vests — that those people are more dangerous to America than fanatics using cultish tribal imperatives to commit mass murder.

    Notice also that she equates terrorism and Islam as lesser threats. When I hear people like her say torture — torture, for God's sake! — is justified, I know it's not homosexuality that is eroding our moral principles.

    And when I hear Republicans cheering the death penalty, I wonder if they've forgotten Jesus got the death penalty. (Had to get that off my chest.)

    1. Steverino247

      They didn't forget, that was part of God's plan, you know. He had to be crucified. Had the Romans drowned him in a toilet, we'd have massive bowls atop every fucking hilltop in the country.

      1. flamingpdog

        And had the Pharisees had him stoned rather than the Romans having him crucified, instead of Catholics doing the sign of the cross, they'd be repeatedly pounding their foreheads with their fists.

  12. BarackMyWorld

    You know who else went around saying an innocent group of people were the biggest threat to their country?

  13. Papa_Uniform

    Just about the time I've got it all settled in my mind that the stupidest people in the world are in Texass someone in Oklahoma opens their mouth. Now I've got to start all over again.

    1. Negropolis

      I'm guessing she is no fun anywhere.

      I would not do her in the bed,
      I wouldn't do her in the head.
      I would not do her here or there,
      I would not fuck her anywhere!

  14. Goonemeritus

    I’m trying to think of the violent wing of the gay rights movement. To my knowledge acts of terrorism have been visited upon them but not the other way around. Perhaps she is confusing glitter with anthrax’s.

  15. fletc3her

    If someone writes about a book about a "stoning", but has never been "stoned", can you chuck the book at them at signings? Something to think about.

  16. ttommyunger

    I am 70 years old, have no job and basically no life; yet I have never pondered the question: "I wonder what others are doing with their genitalia?". What is wrong with these people? Project much?

  17. Redhead

    homosexuality is “the biggest threat our nation has, even more so than terrorism or Islam,”

    *beats head against wall*

    Yeah, well, I have to deal with teabagger ret@rds every day. Trust me, they far by far the biggest threat.

  18. Pristine_ODummy

    I gotcher "principles of religion and morality" and "virtue" right here, bitch.

    Clearly this lady needs a tradesmens' entrance delivery real bad. I would hatefuck her with a barbed wire dildo, if nobody else is willing.

  19. natoslug

    Oh fuck her and the horse she rode in on. The horse is probably a lot fucking better in bed. (this comment makes sense after 4 margaritas, hopefully it will also make sense sober. We'll see, if I remember to check tomorrow or Monday or whenever the fuck sobriety settles in).

    1. HistoriCat

      Everything is better after 4 margaritas.

      Damn it – it's Saturday night and I have no margaritas. I want my country back!

      1. natoslug

        I had a bottle of Blue Curacao, limes and a bottle of cheap tequila. It was a solution in search of its own problem. Now I have a fuzzy monitor and 16, 485 pictures to sort through. I'm thinking I should have handled my photo editing desires 12 hours ago.

        1. HistoriCat

          Now I have a fuzzy monitor and 16, 485 pictures to sort through.

          What would really help in that situation … is a margarita.

  20. DustBowlBlues

    Oh, shit. What a day. Boring errands and while I'm waiting for the water to boil to soften up the new mouth protector, or whatever those things are called, i hit the space bar to find a little diversion on the nettubes. First thing to come up is a sidebar on the Xian Science Monitor about arctic ice melting at even faster rate than previously thought and then when I go to the wonket for a laugh, someone's evidently trying to have sex with Rick Perry to blackmail him and this crazy lady puts OK on the wonket laff-riot hit parade.

    What would it cost me to keep OK's dust addled dickwads off the wonket. It's still "my" wonkette, isn't it? Kristen? Or Junior–if you're still out there and whatever your real name is, how about it? I know Oklahoma is one, big, endless, easy laugh but, even though I know how fucking stupid and hateful everyone but me and the couple dozen other Democrats who live here are, I'm still capable of being embarrassed by everyone else, especially like this Sally Bitch.

    1. jqheywood

      I feel your pain…I grew up in Arizona, and most of my family lives there still. I hang my head in shame almost daily here on our Wonkette. Of course, I did spit water all over my monitor the other day with the comment about AZ being the "meth lab of democracy," and the reply that "Yes, but it's a dry meth."

  21. comrad_darkness

    “principles of religion and morality” are being eroded all right, by Republicans who give tax money to millionaires for private jets while starving school children. The gays are causing this how, exactly?

    Dumb fucking bitch.

  22. frequency_one

    "She repeated her claim that homosexuality is 'more dangerous' than terrorist attacks because unlike terrorism, we have to deal with it every day."

    By that logic, brushing my teeth is also more dangerous than terrorists. Damn gingivitis…

  23. frequency_one

    "She repeated her claim that homosexuality is 'more dangerous' than terrorist attacks because unlike terrorism, we have to deal with it every day."

    By that logic then brushing my teeth is also more dangerous than terrorists. Damn gingivitis…

  24. poorgradstudent

    If you want an example of the nation's "moral fabric" being torn down, watch the clip from the Republican debate where the audience cheers at the mere mention of over a hundred executions. Now I'm not sure what the gayz have to do with that, but I'm sure Sally can explain it to me.

  25. Indiepalin

    Her website explains that another of her goals is to make English the official language of Oklahoma, which would certainly be an improvement…

  26. Tundra Grifter

    How did Jon Stewart miss this one in his masterful summary of "conservatives as victims?"

    A textbook case…

  27. India tours

    In the United States, the first seaside resorts in the European style were at Atlantic City, New Jersey and Long Island, New York.

    In Continental Europe, early resorts included: Ostend, popularised by the people of Brussels; Boulogne-sur-Mer (Pas-de-Calais) and Deauville (Calvados) for the Parisians; and Heiligendamm, founded in 1793, as the first seaside resort on the Baltic Sea.

  28. Aluminium Window

    A window is a transparent or translucent opening in a wall or door that allows the passage of light and, if not closed or sealed, air and sound. Windows are usually glazed or covered in some other transparent or translucent material like float glass.
