Tennessee Republican Rejects Young Girl's Request For Help While Crowd Cheers - VIDEO

Tenn Rep

The young girl, whose name is Josie, according to the video's description, was at the tea party event of over 200 people to ask a question about immigration reform. She looked Tennessee Republican Rep. Scott Desjarlais in the eye and asked "Mr. Desjarlais, I have papers but my daddy doesn't, what can you do to make sure he can stay?" 

JosieAccording to the National Day Laborer Organizing Network, the group that uploaded the video to YouTube, Josie's father is in the middle of the deportation process. "Since her father was placed in deportation proceedings, she's been going to therapy to deal with the anxiety," the group reports. Her apparent bravery unfortunately did little to sway Rep. Desjarlais, who thanked her for speaking before saying, "The fact still remains that we have laws and we need to follow those laws." Politics aside, Desjarlais' response would likely seem civil to most...if it wasn't for the fact that members of the crowd were enthusiastically expressing their support in the background. 

If Desjarlais's name seems at all familiar to you, Joe. My. God. can help you jog your memory:

"You may recall that Rep. Scott DesJarlais' (R-TN) campaign website bills him as working to outlaw abortion and as a defender of God-ordained man-woman marriage "and PROUD OF IT." But in typical Teapocrisy style, his own divorce papers revealed him to be an adulterer many times over who pressured one of his mistresses to abort his child."

Corsi: Marriage Equality Will Lead To Polygamy, Pedophilia, Priests Charged With Hate Crimes: VIDEO

Jerome Corsi


Jerome Corsi, author and "resident crackpot" of WND, was one of the speakers attending the Eagle Forum's Collegians Summit in Washington DC. During his speech, he spouted many familiar arguments frequently used by homophobic conservatives, that marriage equality will inevitable lead to polygamy and pedophilia. 

"It's very hard, once these barriers are broken, once the logic of a Judeo-Christian faith is broken down, so that people no longer believe in fundamental issues such as sin...We begin heading towards a kind of Paganism that we've done before. Ancient Rome experimented with this."

Corsi also cautioned those in attendance that establishing a constitutional right to same-sex marriage would inevitably lead to hate crime charges against anyone "who preaches a Biblical, Judeo-Christian interpretation that anything except a marriage between a man and a woman is a sin."

Marco Rubio at CPAC: Denying Gays the Right to Marry 'Does Not Make Me a Bigot' - VIDEO

Rubio

Florida Senator Marco Rubio spoke at CPAC Thursday afternoon, Think Progress reports:

I respect people who disagree with me on certain things, but that means they have to respect me too. Just because I believe states should have the right to define marriage in a traditional way does not make me a bigot. Just because we believe that life, all human life, all life, all human life is worth of protection in every stage of its development doesn’t make you a chauvinist. In fact, the people who are actually close minded in American politics are people who love to preach about the certainty of science in regard to our climate, but ignore the absolute fact that life begins at conception.

Alabama GOP Official Compares Obama to Hitler, Says He's Going to Gay-Indoctrinate the Nation's Children: VIDEO

Zeanah

An Alabama GOP official warns of the dangers of the Common Core State Standards Initiative to develop educational benchmarks that states can voluntarily adopt, comparing Obama to Hitler in the process, Right Wing Watch reports:

During a speech at the Wetumpka Tea Party, Elois Zeanah of the Alabama Federation of Republican Women compared the adoption of Common Core to the indoctrination of children in Nazi Germany, with President Obama teaching children and imposing an “anti-Christian, anti-capitalism, anti-America…pro-homosexuality, illegal immigration, unions, environmentalism, gun control, feminism and social justice” curriculum.

“They are going to force us to pay to indoctrinate our own kids,” Zeanah warned, “this is not a novel like ‘1994’ [sic], it’s Common Core.”
