On August 18, the U.S. Department of Agriculture hosted an event called the LGBT Rural Summit (see middle of page) meant to discuss ways to make life better for LGBT people in rural Iowa. Drake University hosted the event.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture, along with Drake Law School, One Iowa, the National Center for Lesbian Rights and True Colors Fund organized The Iowa LGBT Rural Summit.
According to Drake’s press release, the event is intended “to share information about programs and services that exist to protect, promote, and strengthen LGBT members of rural communities. Issues related to housing, education, health care, youth empowerment, and more will be discussed.” Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack was the keynote speaker.
One Iowa’s executive director, Donna Red Wing, said the Department of Agriculture is not giving out special money specifically to LGBT people. They are focused on ensuring that everyone understands what the Department of Agriculture does, including the LGBT community.
In response, Rush Limbaugh went off on a radio show rant about the dangers of ‘Lesbian Farmers’, accusing the US of “trying to bust up one of the last geographic conservative regions in the country…rural America.”
Have you heard the latest Democrat scam? Have you heard about the agriculture department’s financial grants to lesbian farmers? You think I’m making this up? See, this is how they do it.
Rural America happens to be largely conservative. Rural America is made up of self-reliant, rugged individualist types. They happen to be big believers in the Second Amendment. So here comes the Obama Regime with a bunch of federal money and they’re waving it around, and all you gotta do to get it is be a lesbian and want to be a farmer and they’ll set you up. I’m like you; I never before in my life knew that lesbians wanted to be farmers.
I never knew that lesbians wanted to get behind the horse and the plow and start burrowing. I never knew it. But apparently enough money can make it happen, and the objective here is to attack rural states. They’re already attacking suburbs, and that has been made perfectly clear by what happened in Milwaukee. They’re going after every geographic region that is known to be largely conservative. They never stop, folks. They are constantly on the march.
