Rick Perry “failed fundamental character test” with anti-gay ad
SFGate: Politics Blog ^ | 12/9/11 | Joe Garofoli, Chronicle Political Writer

Posted on 12/09/2011 5:09:21 PM PST by SmithL

Rick Perry is waaaaaaaaay behind in polls everywhere, so he’s literally throwing a Hail Mary pass to Iowa’s conservative evangelical Christian community with a new TV ad that is getting pounded across the political spectrum — and even from within Perry’s campaign — for its anti-gay message.

“I’m not ashamed to admit that I’m a Christian,” Perry says in the ad currently in heavy rotation in Iowa. “But you don’t need to be in the pew every Sunday to know that there’s something wrong in this country when gays can serve openly in the military, but our kids can’t openly celebrate Christmas or pray in school.

“As President, I’ll end Obama’s war on religion, and I’ll fight against liberal attacks on our religious heritage.

Top GOP strategist Steve Schmidt — who ran both John McCain’s 2008 prez campaign and CA Guv Arnold Schwarzenegger’s 2006 re-elect — called the ad “despicable,” . . .

lol.

That is not really anti-gay, that is more of pointing to the vastly different way groups are being treated these days.

Perry is definitely going “all-in” in Iowa but he doesn’t have many chips to put in the middle of the table.

Can we take back the language please? Can we call out gays for being the most homophobic for using “gay” as a euphemism (that *everyone else* has accepted) to hide their HOMOsexuality?

Resist. We must.

It's anything but "despicable". It's gutsy, straight to the point and it's the truth. Our society is as depraved and perverted as the Roman Empire under Caligula. A reckoning is coming and it's not going to be pretty.

>>>”the jacket Perry wore is remarkably similar to the one in Broke Back Mountain”>>>>

It is also just like the one Mr Ditter wears when he goes to see the bucking bulls he raises. It is remarkably similar to the ones the cowboys in the PBR wear and well as every farmer and rancher in the whole country. But of course this guy wouldn't know that because they don't wear them in San Francisco. Let's hear it for CARHARTT!

You know what fails a fundamental character test? Badmouthing your own candidate’s running mate in a presidential election when you’re the campaign manager, that’s what.

Steve, I think Rick Perry is about as likely to sprout wings and fly as he is to win the nomination at this point, but you’re a human secretion stain on the Republican party and the conservative movement. And I don’t mean from above the waistline, sunshine.

There is a huge population of silent Americans who resent the idea that gays get preferential treatment to other groups in our society. When it comes to their children being sent home for expressing a little Christian thought, it has many outraged. When it comes to receiving letters from their brave heroes in the military about the behavior of the gays, it has many crawling up the walls in frustration. During this Christmas season, it has many Americans resenting the spirit of Christmas being closed out from the public square.

Governor Rick Perry pretty well nailed it.

When you employ euphemisms such as “gay” and “choice”, then you’ve already surrendered, doofus, I have long argued.
It doesn’t matter what you say after that!

No, but he'll sure get the 5% committed evangelical vote.

10-12% in Iowa.

Then nothing.

“”...and Perry would be an excellent VP. I like his values and his honesty.””

After I saw an interview he did with Wolf Blitzer (I know! I know! I do watch CNN as I know what to expect) this week, he’s looking better to me all the time!

I saw someone today griping about him forgetting something again and here I sit not able to tell you what he forgot because I have forgotten. We all do it so what’s the big deal?

There's forgetting and there's forgetting...He's got a lot on his mind. I think he's the only candidate with a real full time job...and that's a damn big state with a lot of stuff going on.

So did Obama forget it was 2011 when he signed the guest book in England...2008 ????

You can’t serve in the military if you’re too short, too tall ! , too fat, too skinny. That’s because unlike most civilian government jobs, the military serves a vital function. Openly gay behavior is detrimental to morale, and due to their feelings of alienation, have a history been high security risks (Private Manning).
Since Leftists don’t know what “rights” really are, they have dfficulty in distinguishing between rights and privileges.

Perry/Newt? Newt would never select Perry. He would end up like McCain,having the VP candidate far more popular than he is.

And Perry would not select Newt. He’d select someone closer to his own values. He’s mentioned some people he’d like in his cabinet who are really good people.

My dream ticket as I have said before is Perry/Palin. Who knows it might happen.

I do not believe that Perry would accept the nod for VP.

Dipping into the Rat-native rhetoric of envy-based politics has its hazards even though it does highlight liberal hypocrisy. But true, San Fran would never have voted for Perry anyhow.

I'm familiar with Carhartt. I like the fact that it's made in the USA, but it's also union-made, so I don't go out of my way to buy it unless it's something I really want or no one else makes.

I know you weren't commenting on the ad, but I had to go watch it for myself to see what all the fuss was about. The degenerates can't seem to handle the truth and will grasp at anything to ridicule the messenger. So the guy in the Brokeback Mt. movie wore the same or similar jacket? What the he!! does that have to do with anything? There are some really nasty comments on the RPerry2012 channel.

Garofoli is DNC stenographer masquerading as a “journalist”

Same with Carla Marinucci of SFHate.

They ran Palin hit pieces on a daily basis for three years until she decided not to run.

They will attack any GOP candidate while lying by omission regarding the misdoings and incompetency of the Dems, especially Obama.

It is a dream because Palin didn't go through Hell three years ago just to end up in second place on somebody's ticket in 2012.

I'm far from a Palin fan but even I know she could jump in the race right now and start polling well above Perry.

Boo hoo...


Genesis 13:13
Now the men of Sodom were wicked and were sinning greatly against the LORD.

Genesis 18:20-21
20. Then the LORD said, "The outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is so great and
their sin so grievous
21. that I will go down and see if what they have done is as bad as the outcry that has reached me. If not, I will know."

Genesis 19:4-7
4. Before they had gone to bed, all the men
from every part of the city of Sodom--both young and old--surrounded the house.
5. They called to Lot, "Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them
."
6. Lot went outside to meet them and shut the door behind him
7. and said, "No, my friends. Don't do this wicked thing.

 

Psalms 12:8      The wicked freely strut about when what is vile is honored among men.

Ain't this just FABULOUS??      More?

Isaiah 3:9   The look on their faces testifies against them; they parade their sin like Sodom; they do not hide it. Woe to them! They have brought disaster upon themselves.

2 Peter 2:13b  Their idea of pleasure is to carouse in broad daylight. They are blots and blemishes, reveling in their pleasures while they feast with you.


 

 

Ezekiel 16:49-50
49. "`Now this was the sin of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy.
50. They were haughty and did detestable things before me. Therefore I did away with them as you have seen.



2 Peter 2

 1.  But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them--bringing swift destruction on themselves.
 2.  Many will follow their shameful ways and will bring the way of truth into disrepute.
 3.  In their greed these teachers will exploit you with stories they have made up. Their condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their destruction has not been sleeping.
 4.  For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but sent them to hell,  putting them into gloomy dungeons  to be held for judgment;
 5.  if he did not spare the ancient world when he brought the flood on its ungodly people, but protected Noah, a preacher of righteousness, and seven others;
 6.  if he condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah by burning them to ashes, and made them an example of what is going to happen to the ungodly;
 7.  and if he rescued Lot, a righteous man, who was distressed by the filthy lives of lawless men
 8.  (for that righteous man, living among them day after day, was tormented in his righteous soul by the lawless deeds he saw and heard)--
 9.  if this is so, then the Lord knows how to rescue godly men from trials and to hold the unrighteous for the day of judgment, while continuing their punishment.
 10.  This is especially true of those who follow the corrupt desire of the sinful nature  and despise authority.   Bold and arrogant, these men are not afraid to slander celestial beings;
 11.  yet even angels, although they are stronger and more powerful, do not bring slanderous accusations against such beings in the presence of the Lord.
 12.  But these men blaspheme in matters they do not understand. They are like brute beasts, creatures of instinct, born only to be caught and destroyed, and like beasts they too will perish.
 13.  They will be paid back with harm for the harm they have done.
Their idea of pleasure is to carouse in broad daylight. They are blots and blemishes, reveling in their pleasures while they feast with you.



But there IS hope!!!

1 Corinthians 6:9-11

 9. Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived:
     Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders
10. nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
11. And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

 


If you could NOT change, you would be in most pitiful shape...

I saw the ad before I saw it on FR. I knew Perry would get in trouble for it. It is not PC. No one mentions that it wrong that kids can't say Christmas. BTW didn't I hear that the word holidays comes from “Holy days”?

So to all my freeper friends, happy Holy Days, the days when Mary and Joseph traveled to Bethlehem where Jesus Christ was born!

Maybe if we say Holy Days instead of holiday we can cause some libturds heads to explode!

Back in June when the possibility of a Palin campaign was being bandied about, this was my dream ticket...

Photobucket

"All these candidates have strengths. Rick Perry and his 2nd Amendment support and that's indicative of he being a constitutional conservative who understands that the Federal Government cannot take away the rights that are inherent, written out very clearly in our Constitution."

"At the end of the day it will be that GOP Constitutional Conservative candidate who we do need to support. We need to back this person up."

Source-Sarah Palin Interview with Sean Hannity-Dec.1,2011

Sarah Palin had comments about Cain,Romney,Gingrich,Perry,Santorum,Paul and Bachman. Her remarks were complimentary of all the candidates, with added praise for Rick Santorum.

The only candidate she referred to specifically as a "constitutional conservative" was Rick Perry.
