Just got a call from my MI State Rep, a GOPer, of course. [View all]
She left a message on my voice mail to tell me that she's having a cyber town meeting with the State AG at the local library. And you know what the important topic is going to be?
OK, I'll tell you… This highly important topic is, "Keeping our kids safe on the internet."
Of course, she wants to talk about internet porn and child molesters, but I wonder what she'd say to a parent whose child was being bullied because they're gay. Or perhaps to the parent of a child who's being harassed by his or her peers because they're standing up for labor rights or against the law which prohibits same sex marriages in this state. Or maybe harassment by fans of our Nerd Governor and all of the right wing psychos who are running amok in Lansing.
"Internet safety," my ass.
The Fucking Michigan Republican party has just destroyed democracy in this state.
