HATERPOLOOZA – Value Voters Summit 2011 Day 1 Recap: A Whole Lot Of Santorum

Well The Value Voters Summit aka HATERPOLOOZA  2012 hosted by the officialy designated hate group The Family Research Council kicked off on Friday with satan’s minions from all over the country meeting at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington DC (A Union Hotel no less) to meet with GOP Presidential candidates and hate groups from around the country to discuss among other things: “Limiting Government • Reducing Spending • Championing Traditional Values • Protecting America. Outlawing Abortion; Protecting One Man One Women Marriage; and Repealing DADT”  (What a bunch of sweethearts)

Here are the “lowlights” from Day One.  And I do mean LOW.

*The Advocate reports that anti-gay literature, books, and pictures were everywhere on opening day with one table giving away buttons that proclaim “Ex-Gay Is OK!”

* GOP Rep. Eric Cantor characterized the Wall Street protesters as a “mob” that wants to “divide America.”  Funny I don;t remember him calling the Tea Party crowds from last year anything but “patriotic” – WATCH THE VIDEO

*”Roll Over Rover” Rick Santorum took to the stage to beg for voted and BOLD FACED LIED telling . the Values Voter Summit audience that the president has ORDERED the military clergy to perform same-sex marriages.

 

”Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) is talked about how hays only want gay marriage as an attack on what “Christians” believe in and no other reason and then the fight to unseat state Supreme Court judges who voted to legalize gay marriage. He said that protesters in favor of same-sex marriage were ”almost militant” and “the most unhappy people I ever heard refer to themselves as gay.”

*Ex-Gay Group PFOX denounced Bullying Laws and Hate Crime Laws on the 13th Anniversay of Matthew Sherard’s deadly beating.  And also DEFENDS Michele Bachmanm.

*The Liberty Counsel’s Mat (I’m too stupid to spell my first name correctly) Staver announced that Progressives HATE “Christian” American Values

*The National Organization For Marriage had a nice big table at #VVS11.  All the better to spread their hateful bullshit around with. – Via:  Good As You

*Louisiana Gov Bobby (Deer stick in the headlights) Jhindal heaped praise on Tony Perkins, the former Louisiana legislator who leads the FRC, which places conservative Christian values — particularly on issues like abortion and gay rights — at the center of its politics. But mentioned NOTHING about Perkin’s ties to white supremacist groups and David Dukes of the KKK.

*John BONER Boehner tore into the White House over its decision to no longer defend DOMA  vowing to continue his efforts to provide legal support for the law.  “If the Justice Department isn’t going to defend this act passed by Congress, then we will. “He also warned that Republicans will strip funding from the Justice Department’s budget to pay for the defense efforts

Well that’s Day One of HATERPOLOOZA 2012 in a nutshell. One down.  Two to go!

Its SERIOUSLY going to take weeks of fumigation to get the smell of sulfur and the stench of evil corruption and decay out of that Hotel when the Values Voters Summit is over.
