GOP Nevada Senate Candidate Sharron Angle Tied to Virulently Homophobic Newspaper Insert

Angle

Tea Party favorite Sharron Angle's prior years as part of Nevada's 'Independent American Party' have been shrouded in mystery, according to Talking Points Memo, until now:

"The far-right third party that Nevada GOP Senate candidate Sharron Angle called home in the 1990s supported abolishing 'the debt money system' and ran a vitriolic anti-gay insert in state newspapers that portrays LGBT people -- or, as Angle's party called them, 'sodomites' -- as child-molesting, HIV-carrying, Hell-bound freaks, according to documents obtained by TPM."

More on that insert:

"The ad insert, which approvingly cites an 1814 legal treatise titled 'Consequences of Sodomy: Ruin of a Nation,' is a digest of articles that refer to LGBT people alternately as 'homosexuals,' 'sodomites,' and 'brazen perverts.' The insert includes virtually every homophobic myth ever conceived. Sample headlines include: 'Homosexual Curriculum In The First Grade' ... 'Flawed Science Nurtures Genetic Origin For Homosexuality' ... 'No Constitutional Right To Be A Sodomite.' Here's a passage from an item headlined 'True Homosexual Character Revealed': "Homosexuals argue that they are a peaceful and gay people. Yet ... Dr. Paul Cameron of the Family Research Report writes "the top six U.S. male killers were all homosexuals."

  3. Ah, yes, the Tea Party/GOP and their wacko tea bagger followers....now that's the true "Ruin of a Nation".

  4. Is anyone surprised that the Tea Bagger Birther party, aka the right wing GOP, is nothing but a bunch of racist, homophobic and I'm sure anti-semitic bigots?

    Last year it looked like Harry Reid was toast, thanks to these nuts that may not be true any longer.

  7. I know she and the Teabaggers make a lot of noise and get media attention, but I think this nutjob is toast as long as information like this gets front page news in NV. AND as long as Reid can keep from tripping over his own dick.

    The kind of stuff that is coming out about her already is the kind of stuff they usually wait until a month before the election to bring out to distract the opponent. But there is SO much wacky shit about her that I think we'll get more and more running up to election day. AND, one would hope they will have a debate or two so Reid can show just how professional politicians act --- at least in a debate.

  8. Uh, oh... Sharron has now lost the two gays in our state who were voting for her!

  9. I have read the reason the polls show her still in the lead is that here have been no polls taken since she won the primary. Therefore, the effect of revelations about her extremist positions--specifically on Social Security and Medicare--haven't yet been reflected in polling.

  10. I think that Harry Reid should simply run an ad with Sharon's face and the ad line should read: She wants to make drinking beer illegal.

    That should do the trick in Nevada.

    And scarily enough, she actually said it.

    REALLY asshole? You managed to use that word in regards to what? Did you burst a big creamy on your XboX, Dick?

    As far as crazu goes, I am amazed at the idiot homos in my state who are talking about voting for someone with so many issues that work against the country and Nevada. We have a very small group of Gay Republicans here and I am filled with disgust for any of them who are planning on voting Republican after this and the Texas GOP platform.

  13. Six top Murderers were Homosexual???

    WTF is she talking about?

    The #1 top murderer is G.W. Bush who's illegitimate crusade in Iraq has cost nearly a Million Iraqi lives alone, not to mention the thousands of American boys and girls.

    Last time I checked, Bush is a breeder.

    Well there is that Jeff Gannon thing...

    She needs better researchers.

  15. Oh those wacky teabaggers. Boldly taking America into the 18th century!

  16. I remember that insert--I was 17, newly out to friends in Carson City. I think it may have helped overturn antisodomy laws in the state--the thing really was so absurd, irrational, and hateful. If I remember correctly, it said that all gay men consumed "six pounds of feces per year." It repeated absurd mistruths about the threat of contacting HIV in swimming pools, and even in public drinking water, as morticians drained the blood of those dead of AIDS into the public sewer system.

    It's terrifying to think of her coming to power in the Senate.
