This morning on CSPAN a caller called in and asked Wayne MacDonald, Chairman of the New Hampshire Republican party, was aked if Mitt Romney has a big penis. NOT that he is a big dick which really goes beyond saying.
The host cut MacDonald off before he could answer.
CSPAN will be broadcasting LIVE from the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition’s eleventh annual Fall Banquet and Presidential Candidates Forum in Des Moines, Iowa which will feature Herman Cain, Ron Paul, Rick Santorum, Michele Bachmann, Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry which I am sure will be nothing more than an LGBT bashfest and a discussions about draconian puesdo religious issues.
The group, part of Ralph E. Reed Jr.’s Faith and Freedom Coalition, describes itself as “a 21st century version of the Christian Coalition.” Reed has said his coalition is designed to act as a bridge between the tea party movement and evangelical voters.
Reed, who became a political consultant after leaving the Christian Coalition, formed the group after his attempt to launch a political career in Georgia collapsed when his ties to disgraced casino lobbyist Jack Abramoff became an issue and after writing an unsuccessful political thriller called Dark Horse.
Although the Coalition is of modest size now, the group is just getting started. Reed’s proven ability to organize the Religious Right faithful and raise money make this an organization to watch.
During his time with the Christian Coalition, Reed was known for his intemperate, often violent, imagery. (He once bragged about leaving political opponents in “body bags.”) Time has not mellowed him. During the March forum, Reed discussed the possibility of “replacing the government by force.”
The line is apparently part of Reed’s stock speech. He also used it at an earlier gathering of Tea Party activists, telling the crowd, “[W]e have not only the right, but the moral obligation to overthrow that government by force if necessary, and form a new government that will protect our rights.”
Way to go CSPAN. Totally responsible broadcasting, ASSHOLES.
At this moment in Washington, DC the first historic hearings on the ‘Respect for Marriage Act’, the bill which would repeal the so-called ‘Defense of Marriage Act’ (DOMA), have begun in the Senate Judiciary Committee
And C-SPAN is not airing it.
I called CSPAN’s Washington DC office and voiced my displeasure at why CSPAN after covering almost the entire Values Voters summit in 2010 was not broadcasting this important LGBT hearing.
Their reply was that whenever the House and Senate is in session that CSPAN 1 and CSPAN 2 are always dedicated to showing them exclusively and that CSPAN3 covers others hearings, seminars, discussions and programming in Washington, DC. So I then inquired what was showing on CSPAN3? I was told it was The Exxon Mobile Spill In The Yellowstone Hearing until 12 Noon EST and then The Counter Narcotics Efforts In Afghanistan Hearing.
Narcotics Efforts In Afghanistan is more important to CSPAN than American Citizens Civil Rights.
I asked if the ‘Respect for Marriage Act’ hearing was on the schedule at all to which I was answered “No “but they have a camera there and might show live segments during Congressional breaks.
CSPAN refused to answer me when I asked who did the scheduling for CSPAN3 and also refused to give any definate answers to if any of the ‘Respect for Marriage Act’ hearing would be shown at all.
This is UNACCEPTABLE.
PLEASE CALL CSPAN @ 1-202.737.3200 AND DEMAND ANSWERS WHY THEY ARE NOT SHOWING THE HEARING AND HOLD THIER FEET TO THE FIRE.
