They don't like The Gays in Oklahomo, er, Oklahom-A.
They think we're worse than terrorists; they think we caused this economic downfall; they think we are responsible for Mylie Cyrus' career and Kate Gosselin on Dancing With The Stars. If it's bad, blame it on The Gays.
Out there in Oklahoma, the legislators have been trying to find a way to remove the LGBT from protection under Hate Crimes Legislation, because it's Oklahoma-Okay for gays to be bashed and brutalized and murdered for our gayness.
But, those Oklahoma legislators are as stupid as they are hateful. See, instead of removing The Gays from hate crime protection, they made a boo-boo and removed race and religion instead!
Yup, that's right!
If you wanna bash an African American, a Mexican, an Asian, you can do it in Oklahoma!
If you wanna bash a Baptists, a Catholic, or a Jew, you can do it in Oklahoma!
Par-tay, for the haters!
Oklahoma State Senate Minority Leader Andrew Rice said that when the Senate passed Senate Bill 1965 on March 10, it eliminated hate crime protections for race and religion. This particular bill states that local law enforcement agencies should not enforce any sections of federal law under hate crimes statutes listed under Title 18 U.S. Code Section 245 unless they are in correlation with Oklahoma's hate crimes laws. But the protections for sexual orientation and gender identity in the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Act are not listed under Section 245, but Section 249.
Rice said, in response to the error, "Numbers is hard."
Okay, maybe he didn't say that. but doesn't this make Oklahoma, home of Dingbat Wingnut Asshat Sally Kern, look even more dumb?
