While viewing the video of Jane Svoboda, an incredibly misinformed and perhaps seriously deranged woman, ‘testifying’ before the Lincoln Nebraska City Council. My jaw dropped to the floor and I was unable to close the gap. She was railing against a proposed LBGT protection ordinance. From her opening salvo about a television show in Holland titled Winter Wipeout and her claim it featured the wholesale slaughter of human beings, attributing the slaughter to it being produced by “gays, bis and orgiers.” From asking why they like to watch people perishing, to spelling out the word penis, to claiming that the thrill of gay sex was in the murder by penetration of said penis into the intestines of the receiving partner. It was a non-stop freak show of a speech. And that was just the first 40 seconds of her five minutes before the Council.
Here’s the video:
It would have been funny if it weren’t for the fact that it was so tragic. There are people in this country who claim that “God hates gays” and who refuse to acknowledge that gay people are also creations of God and as such, deserve the same rights as the rest of us. This woman is the kind of person who will hold her nose, go to the polls and vote for Mitt Romney, a man who once said he would defend and expand the rights of gays and lesbians although he does not support same sex marriage and civil unions. She and others like her will vote for Romney because they are so blinded by hate, they will vote for anyone but Obama and they don’t care that a President Romney will dismantle this country, much as he did companies during his tenure at Bain Capital selling us all down the river. The rich will get richer and the rest of us will get the shaft. But those damned gays won’t be able to get married! Or teach. Or work in hospitals. Or be protected against hate crimes. At least, that is what Ms. Svoboda is aiming for.
The video speaks for itself and the message is clear. We absolutely, positively cannot let lunatics like this decide the 2012 election. They already decided the 2010 election and look where that got us.
And just a side note: the guy behind her is priceless!
