Pawlenty of Bigotry: Minnesota Republican Party Produces Anti-Gay Video

sign carried at 2004 Marriage Amendment Rally

Senate candidate Mark Kennedy's recent fundraising letter said that Kennedy's highest priority - above national security was getting the Federal Marriage Amendment passed. One would think the war on terror would be a higher priority.

Now the Drama Queen reprints the Republican Party of Minnesota Press Release announcing this video. I'd like a copy of this puppy. I'd like to challenge Republican Party Chair Ron Carey, Governor Tim Pawlenty and Speaker Steve Sviggum to explicitly condemn these hateful signs carried at the 2004 Bachmann Amendment Rally.

2004 Bachmann Amendment Rally

MN GOP UNVEILS NEW VIDEO ON STATE MARRIAGE AMENDMENT
Republican Party of Minnesota Chairman Ron Carey today unveiled a new video encouraging Minnesotans to contact their legislators and ask for an up-or-down vote on the marriage amendment. The video will be mailed to thousands of Minnesotans later in the week.

"Having an up-or-down vote on the marriage amendment enjoys broad bipartisan support in our state. This new video encourages citizens to get involved and ask their senators for an up-or-down vote on the marriage amendment," Republican Party of Minnesota Chairman Ron Carey said.

"It's time for the politicians in St. Paul to allow for up-or-down vote on whether to have a marriage amendment to our constitution. We hope Minnesotans who support an up-or-down vote on the marriage amendment will call their senators and have their voices heard," Carey added.




Now what's the difference between the type of signs displayed at the 2004 Bachmann amendment rally and the signs carried at Andrew Kemple's funeral?

It seems that the Republican Party of Minnesota has given up on being the party of lower taxes and limited government.
