RINO Pro-Homosexual Agenda Exposed in Dist. 12

October 31, 2012   ·   By   ·   3 Comments

Remember when several “Republicans” recently endorsed a Democrat  in the South Dakota District 12 House race?

While it’s true that every great now and then you find a Democrat whose actually more conservative than some “Republicans” (especially given the sorry state of what passes for “Republican” these days), the odds are still high that a Democrat choice is going to yield liberal results.

Does that hold true for the Democrat these “Republicans” endorsed in South Dakota Dist. 12?  Yup.

A new mailer has gone out exposing what the South Dakotans of Dist. 12 can expect if they vote for Mike Knudson…and what they can expect if they listen to “Republicans” like the RINOs who endorsed him.

The text of the mailer:

Mike Knudson is bragging that several radical pro-homosexual activists are endorsing him.

These eight pro-homosexual legislators (The “Gang of Eight”: State Senators Angie Buhl and Joni Cutler, state Representatives Mitch Fargen, Gene Abdallah and Suzy Blake and former state Legislators Sandy Jerstad, Casey Murschel and Bill Thompson) are working to push their extremist agenda on South Dakota.

Together they have:

  • Introduced legislation forcing employers to accept deviant sexual behavior.
  • Voted to force homosexual “marriage” on South Dakota.
  • Supported the extremist homosexual lobby in their ongoing effort to keep pastors and priests from speaking their beliefs about deviant sexual behavior.

Why is Mike Knudson aligning himself with this radical homosexual agenda?

Some people don’t like cards like this. They aren’t “nice.” Well, undermining family, marriage and the moral fabric of society definitely isn’t nice. The best advice I have for people who don’t like having their liberal positions and alliances exposed on cards like this is: don’t support liberals or liberal positions. If you don’t want to be exposed as a liberal, don’t support liberal positions. It’s as simple as that.  And if you don’t like seeing your friends exposed as liberals, counsel them not to support liberal positions. If you’re going to support liberalism, the least you can do is be open and up front about it; for Pete’s sake, don’t run around trying to deceive people!

Once again, we see wolves in sheep’s clothing, pretenders who have stolen the Republican brand to provide cover for themselves…even as they undermine Republican values and the Republican agenda. In war, if you dress up in the enemy’s uniform while attacking that enemy, you can be shot for espionage.  No one is advocating RINOs should be shot (though RINOs like to whine about such faux ideas to make conservatives look mean), but Republicans should take it very seriously when people portray themselves as one of us while they undermine our values and goals. It should not be tolerated.

There are plenty of other RINOs out there who are using the Republican brand to purchase safe political passage for themselves…even as they undermine Republican values and the Republican agenda.

Don’t forget that RINO Gov. Dennis Daugaard gave aid and comfort to such liberals-against Republicans who represent authentic Republican values-in the GOP primary a few months ago.

Remember it when the GOP caucuses for the 2013 legislative session; they need to choose real Republicans, not liberals in Republican clothing. When you support liberal candidates, you support liberalism. When you support liberalism, you oppose Republican values-the values that made our nation great.

Remember it when it comes time to elect a new governor in 2014; we need one who will fight for Republican values, not play for the other team and sell them out to socialists and liberals.

Limbaugh’s ‘Jesus on Trial:’ The Verdict is in

J. Matt Barber

With his latest book, “Jesus on Trial: A Lawyer Affirms the Truth of the Gospel,” David Limbaugh remains true to form. In fact, having read nearly every manuscript he’s penned, I believe this to be, hands down, David’s best and most important work to date. While managing to make each sentence of each chapter in this page-turner fascinating, Limbaugh also provides proof beyond any reasonable doubt that Jesus Christ, in both His historical and spiritual respects, was, and is, exactly who He said He is: God incarnate, the living, physically resurrected Savior of the world and the only, yes, that means the exclusive, path to God the Father.

Republicans shouldn’t pander to Hispanic voters

Star Parker

The immigration issue is now a political football because of the political baggage it carries. Both parties want the votes of the Hispanic population, the most rapidly growing demographic in the country. And this is the same population most sensitive to the immigration issue because most of the illegals within our borders are from Latin American countries.


SOS: Speaking of Seniors - Government and Turtles

Woodrow Wilcox

What do the federal government and turtles have in common? Speed! One of our senior citizen clients got married in October 2013. After her honeymoon, she did the responsible thing and asked the Social Security Administration to change the name on her social security card to her new, married name. A few weeks later, she got a new card with her married name. But, Medicare never sent her a new Medicare ID card with her new last name.


The Perfect Plan

A.J. Castellitto

159 House Republicans (including my district rep) and 33 Senate Republicans voted for arming Syrian rebels against the will of their constituents. In the meantime, our borders are a mess and our own government has been enabling (or simply ignoring) a multitude of illegal entries via land and air. Not only are we arming those who hate us (and will eventually come for us) but we are ignoring (and/or supporting) those who are planning and plotting something against us on our own soil.

EB-5 Program a Ted Kennedy Brainchild

Bob Ellis

The EB-5 "cash-for-visas" program has generated a lot of controversy and discussion in South Dakota over the past couple of years. Did you know the EB-5 program that some "Republicans" have embraced was created by a Democrat Ted Kennedy bill?


"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
