In Oklahoma, Rep. Sally Kern’s folks get really hateful

Posted on 14 Sep 2010 at 8:44am

I know I shouldn’t expect anything less from the supporters of Sally Kern, but calling my friend, Brittany Novotny, who happens to be trying to run for office because she is more qualified than Sally a “confused it” is rather uncalled for, don’t ya think? Brittany responds with her usual style and grace:

“If Rep. Kern and her allies spent as much time focusing on Oklahoma’s future as they seem to spend worrying about my past, maybe we could keep teachers in the classroom and rebuild our crumbling infrastructure,” Novotny said. “This type of personal attack is what Oklahomans are tired of, and it shows why Kern and her political allies continue to be out of touch with mainstream Oklahoma values.”

“Certainly there are third parties out there who may not listen to me and may go ahead and personally attack her, just like she may have supporters that don’t take the lead from her and personally attack me,” Novotny said. “It happens. I hope that those voices are kept to a minimum and they don’t overshadow the campaign, because I really do think there are some serious differences in how we see the future of Oklahoma and what we think will be best for our economic development.”

We can all help Brittany unseat a hateful homophobic legislator who infamously proclaimed:

Studies show that no society that has totally embraced homosexuality has lasted more than, you know, a few decades. So it’s the death knell of this country. I honestly think it’s the biggest threat our nation has, even more so than terrorism or Islam — which I think is a big threat, okay? Cause what’s happening now is they are going after, in schools, two-year olds…And this stuff is deadly, and it’s spreading, and it will destroy our young people, it will destroy this nation.

Send a message by giving generously to Brittany right here.
