Sally Kern: We’ve had 3 major terrorist attacks, but we’re bombarded with homosexuality daily

Sally Kern

It’s been more than two years since Oklahoma State Rep. Sally Kern made the statement that homosexuals are a bigger threat to national security than terrorists. And Kern is still trying to explain why.

From an interview with Fox 25 in Oklahoma City, which reported recently on Kern’s race against Democratic challenger Brittany Novotny, who happens to be transgender:

When you mention the name Sally Kern, most people think of the now-infamous speech she gave two years ago, declaring homosexuals more dangerous to America than terrorists. But that is the first of many misconceptions Kern says she wants to clear up.

“Here in America we’ve had what maybe three known real big terrorist attacks on our nation,” Kern said. “But every day our young people especially, all of us, but our young people especially are in a sense bombarded with the message that homosexuality is normal and natural.”

Media Matters: Beck’s views vs Dr. King’s; follow the rally w/Rude Pundit

I have to start out with this statement: Alveda King is a boil on the civil rights movement. What a joke; a CNN reporter just called her appearance “significant.” That this is the spin when this niece of Dr. King has a long history of anti-gay bigotry that does not mirror the beliefs of most of Dr. King’s immediate family is absurd. Given Alveda thinks genes trumps an acquired belief system regarding social justice, you’d think she’d be considered a whack job, but no.

Anyway, as Beck’s “Restoring Honor” rally in Washington, DC proceeds on the mall, Media Matters has a primer on the stain reality that this event places on Dr. King’s memory. Over to the right, I highly recommend following The Rude Pundit‘s @rudepundit) blow-by-blow coverage of the event.

King forcefully advocated for drastic action by the federal government to combat poverty; supported “social justice”; called for an “economic bill of rights” that would “guarantee a job to all people who want to work”; and stated that we must address whether we need to “restructure the whole of American society” — all ideas that Beck has vilified.

Beck accuses progressives of trying to rewrite history and implores his followers to read original sources, but a review of King’s own words clearly shows that Beck’s insistence that he and his followers are the custodians of King’s dream and legacy is nothing more than a lie.
