Republican New Hampshire State Rep. Nancy Elliott has just become a blog superstar in because of this snippet posted on Feb 9 on YouTube for all the wrong reasons.
In her fanatical opposition to New Hampshires Gay Marriage Law, she hysterically outright lies in her hate fueled opposition.
In her statements, she claimes that grade school children are being subjected to lessons about gay anal sex techniques.

She even went so far as to level such an allegation during a recent hearing on a bill to repeal the state's marriage equality law, much to the confusion of school officials who vehemently denied her claims.

"I heard yesterday from a mother that in fifth grade in Nashua, they were given as part of their classroom instruction naked pictures of two men showing a presentation of anal sex," she said during a recent session, according to New Hampshire newspaper The Nashua Telegraph.

"This is directly related to the bill," she continued. "Because we have made a marriage of same sex, they are now teaching it in public school. They are showing our fifth-graders how they can actually perform this kind of sex and they are condoning, they are saying this is normal and this is something that you may want to try."
Her full quote went like this:

And so, you know I started thinking, and we're talking about taking the penis of one man and putting into the rectum of another man, and wiggling it around in excrement. And I have to think, I'm not sure, would I allow that to be done to me? All of us, that could happen to you. Would you let the happen to you?"

Now, I really don't believe for a second that Elliott believes a word of what she is saying in regard to school children and anal sex. She isn't stupid, but she is a vicious hate filled manipulative liar.

This is the kind of hyperbolic over the edge, down right nasty, outright imflammatory lying technique that is commonly employed by the Party Of No to influence their weak minded constituents.
Just like Glenn Beck has admitted: He does not believe the garbage he spouts. Like the people directing the climate change denial, like the teabag leaders who are using the "birther" controversyand have convinced their flock that they are paying more taxes ins pite of the fact that in reaity, their taxes have been cut. They are lying and they know it. The bigger the lie, the more they can use the logic and the decency of their opposition as a weapon against them. The denial of a lie becomes the fuel that keeps it alive.

There is an organization which tries to do the work that an responsible society should be doing 24 hours everyday...It's a lonely job , but MediaMatters does it. Relentlessly fact checking a media out of control in our amnesiac flabby world. Support them, because they support you.

Hello Microdot,
Good Post. Yes much like those who testified in the Dover, PA trial. Yes those who professed of being of Christian values and who tried to throw out real science and have their religious "Intelligent Design" taught as a science class. Yes it was those same Christians professing Christian values, were the ones who lied in the court room after swearing in on the Bible to, “Tell the truth, The whole truth, and nothing but the truth so help your God.”

Yes once on the stand, they Lied, and Lied some more, in fact they Blatantly Lied through out the whole trial. The judge recommended that the whole group should be charged with Prudery that lead to Obstruction of Justice.

Just because someone professes to be a good Republican Fundamentalist Christian does not mean that they have any Morals, Scruples, or any true following of Jesus’s teachings of Christian Values. As a mater of fact, I find the TRUTH with these people to be quite the inverse. All posing no substance.

Thanks for the comment, Engineer.
This particular incident seemed to encapsulate all that I find wrong with politics in America today.
All politicians lie, we all exagerrate at times, but the incendiary level of the manipulative hypocrisy that is allowed to pass unchallenged in America has become the style, the norm.
Even Silvio Berlusconi couldn't get away with this shit in Italy. Instead of lying, he just shuts down the press....
Gadfrey...I can't help myself, I just start ranting again....
