The anti-gay cartoon Oklahoma County commish Brent Rineheart's used for re-election

This is pretty disgusting to me, but I'll let you call it.

I watched this dude on CNN's American Morning before heading out to work today. John Roberts asked him if he were homophobic. Rinehart's response verbatim: Well, I'm not even sure as to what homophobic means.

"But let's just keep in mind that we are in a cultural war, " Rinehart continued. "Not just here in the state of Oklahoma but nationwide."

Sadly, far too many people think like this idiot in rural America. Urban areas, too.

SMH @ how this backward yokel spelled "pedophile" incorrectly each time he tried to use it in the cartoon.

That's just one page in the comic book Oklahoma County Commissioner Brent Rinehart sent to his constituents seeking re-election:

In one panel, you've got Satan holding up a pitchfork, the balloon overseeing his head says, "If I can get the kids to believe homosexuality is normal." And Angel on the other side of the panel says, hey, Satan, not with Brent around you won't."

Yes, is more where this homophobic foolishness came from and yes, it does get worse than this.

In this panel, there's a lineup of caricatures of gay men, one of them wearing a toga. Some of the signs that they're carrying say we're here, we're queer, get used to it, I want be a Boy Scout leader.
