Reasons to vote no on Prop 8 in CA: Mass Resistance and the Wirthlins

So I recently became aware of the fact that Mass Resistance has been classified as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center and decided to do a bit more research.

During my research I saw the sporadic contacts between the Wirthlins and Mass Resistance. Apparently they had their sensibilities hurt when the book King and King was read to a second grade class, one that their precious son was in.

A fairly innocuous book if you ask me. But the Worthless Wirthlins had a different view of the book. So much so that they had to meet with Estabrook School Principal Joni Jay and the teacher, Mrs. Heather Kramer.

And of course the Wirthlins showed THEIR notes. And for more Mass Resistance wackiness read here.

I absolutely love Ms. Jay’s comments that the Wirthlins could read every book in the library. That was great. I’d love to see her notes on the meeting, I’m fairly certain that the words ‘anti-gay’ show up in the notes several times.

And the Wirthlins saying they weren’t assuaged, that was just over the top. Assuage means to lessen the intensity, to pacify, quiet, appease and quench. In other words, the Wirthlins want it their way or the highway.

It is very understandable why the Southern Poverty Law Center would classify Mass Resistance as a hate group, the evidence is overwhelming when you think about it. And as a special treat, here are the Wirthlins on video defending their point. Robin Wirthlin gets very emphatic about homosexuality.

  1. If these parents are so concerned about their children, and what they learn in public school, then it is time for them to become much more active in their education. Here in Florida there is a giant movement where parents are sick of their children not learning at all, so Homeschoolers are very abundant, most of the families I know more than 70% are homeschooling their children and they are not taught anything about prejudices at all. School is for education, and not politics. Parents shouldn’t bitch, they should school their children the way they want, so get off your ass and teach your children life skills and stimulate those brains.

  2. What a load of crap. Typical for the neo-con right wingers. They blow everything way out of proportion. They act like they are being persecuted, when in reality gay bashing is common place. I hope that one of the children is gay or lesbian.


  3. Yeah, Cpat. Mary. Homeskoolig (typo intentional) is definitely THE Aswer. God FORBID that a child be taught that prejudice is wrong, no matter who the target of that prejudice is. We would’t want THAT, now would we?
