(Jesse) Ventura speaks out against Minnesota gay marriage amendment
Duluth (Mn) News-Tribune ^ | 9/17/12 | MplsSteve

Posted on 09/17/2012 6:26:20 PM PDT by MplsSteve

Former Gov. Jesse Ventura is speaking out against a gay marriage ban on the Minnesota ballot.

The former Independence Party governor and longtime gay rights supporter appears in a video posted online Friday by Minnesotans United for All Families, the main group working to defeat the proposed constitutional amendment. Voters will decide in November whether to add the ban to the state's constitution.

In the video, Ventura says, “Love is by far bigger than government can ever be.”

Nothing surprises me about this ass-clown. His four years as Governor were an embarrasment to this state.

Comments or opinions - anyone?

Ex-Gov is a freakshow. His comments only marginal, they were even so when he was Gov.

The Amendment will pass even though the state is severely democrat.

I guess "Buncha slack-jawed faggots around here!" was meant as praise and not ridicule.

“Love is by far bigger than government can ever be.”

Jesse's self-love is certainly far bigger.

It's cute how he thinks any give a damn about what he has to say.

Yep... he's a piece of work.

When he drones on about 9/11 being an inside job, then we know his brain has turned to mush. Must have been those years of having his head bashed into the pole during his days of wrestling.

Apparently there were no UFO or Big Foot sightings in Minnesota in the past week for Jesse to investigate.

Our media has mounted a campaign for decades to confuse people into not knowing the differance between mere sex and true love.

I thought he renounced his citizenship and moved to Mexico? I guess he still keeps his finger in the pie?

What, no conspiracy theory attached to his latest pontification? Gov. Turnbuckle has been on the receiving end of a few too many atomic drops.

The weight lifting and pro wrestling circuits are filled to the brim with homosexuals, both inside and in their fan base.

Arnold got lots of unsolicited expensive gifts from them during his Mr. Universe days, and always went out of his way to be homo-friendly. It paid off for him.

It wouldn’t surprise me one bit if Ventura had even crossed over for a while to further his career.

The latest from ex-Governor ass-clown:

Ventura Talks 2016 Presidential Run On ‘The View’

Barbara Walters asked Ventura why he doesn’t run again. He said he might.

“If I do run for president…I will run as an individual with no political party,” he said. “If you vote for me, you won’t have the baggage of these two gangs.”

Like Jimmuh Cartuh, the Clintons, and herpes, he just won't go away.

I can’t decide which photo is more damning—the one you just posted, or the one of 0bama cozied up on the couch with the fruity, mustachioed little fellow.

“”””I didn’t know Ventura was a homosexual. You learn something new every day.””””

He is not a homosexual but his boyfriend is.

Good Grief-—Ventura! You should know that sodomy isn’t about “love”; it is about lust and boys. Your promotion of homosexuality is promoting child abuse and forcing children to think such evil behavior is a “right”. Rights don’t come from Satan in this country-—or from Barney Frank or some base urge to pleasure oneself or masturbate in holes or other orifices not meant for that use. How sick are you?

All homosexual cultures are filled with pederasts like Sandusky and John Maynard Keynes and like the SA Brownshirts and Hitler. Guess you think that when you habituate yourself with debasing and dehumanizing behaviors, like getting pleasure out of sodomy, can promote Virtue! Wrong—habituation of Vice only destroys Virtue. Vice makes one evil. Sodomy will always be a vice—it is unnatural and intrinsically disordered and a fixation on prepuberty and idolization of self.

Educate yourself, Ventura! All homosexuality is about dysfunction and lusting after boys-—the age of when these pederasts were raped or seduced by some homosexual. It is sexist beyond belief and bigoted.

Jesse Ventura is not a conservative, He was a really bad Governor not much different than Ahrnold... hopefully we have passed over the idea of celebutard politicians

Ventura did have some great ads when he first ran for governor. I remember thinking he would win because they were so clever. (and he did). Too bad he was such an idiot—maybe too many steroids or something ate up his brain. He is such a convoluted “thinker”. No logic and reason most of the time.

Ahrnold and him are really arrogant asses. They are too full of themselves to even think. Probably couldn’t understand a word of Hayek if their life depended on it.

Our media has mounted a campaign for decades to confuse people into not knowing the differance between mere sex and true love.

Amen to that. This isn't about love at all - it's about changing the definition of an institution that has existed since the dawn of man to include two guys that like to play with each other's a-holes and wallow in each other's feces.

The real truth is that marriage was never about love. Marriage, throughout history, was always a contract for securing family bonds and creating children (heirs). Only in our recent Disneyfied history have we decided that marriage is all about finding your "soul mate" and being "happy" - both of which are very narcissistic reasons for entering into a holy union because the union becomes all about you and what the union can bring you, rather than about "us" or what you can bring into the union. Naturally, you want there to be love in the union, but it is not the most critical element.

Well, once you change the concept of marriage to be solely about one's personal fulfillment, then naturally every perverted freak will want to get in on the action and demand it as a "right". If you return to the old way of looking at marriage - as a responsibility that one is assuming rather than a privilege that one is being granted, then a lot of the propaganda that the homos use now simply falls away.

I might not understand a lot of things but I found myself actually enjoying the logic and common sense of Hayek, Bastiat and others

He just gives more reasons for Minnesotans to vote for it. Do folks want to agree with Ventura or with Jesus Christ(Matthew 19:4-6)?
