TARGET Backed GOP Candidate for Minnesota Governor Tom Emmer Doesn’t Believe In Or Back Anti-Bullying Legislature (Video)

This really isn’t all that shocking considering that Tom Emmer is a total douchebag.  But in a recent debate between Emmer, Democratic Candidate for Govenor of MN Mark Dayton and Independent Candidate Tom Horner, who are both FOR anti-bullying legislature, Emmer who admitted to be being bullied when he was a child himself and has children in public school system strongly came out against it.

I don’t think we need more laws. I think we need more understanding. We need people to start to understand what respect is all about. And guess what? Every one of us has a point of view. We are supposed to respect each other’s point of view, and we’re not supposed to tell somebody, because they have a different point of view, that they are not entitled to have that. We should all be able to have the point of view and respect each other but we don’t need more laws trying to get in between people.

So according to Emmer harassment, hate and violence is nothing more than a POV and should be respected.

Luckily King Douchebag Emmer is behind in virtually every poll and Mark Dayton has the lead. Dayton not only came out strongly for anti-bullying legislation but also gay marriage during the debate and and turned the tables on Republican Teabaggers by reciting the most important part of The Declaration of Independence quoting “that all men are created equal”.

Well played Mr. Dayton!
