During Friday’s legislative session, Wisconsin Democrat Assemblyman Gordon Hintz walked back and pointed at Republican Assemblywoman Michelle Litjens and said, “You are fucking dead!”

“After we voted to engross the bill, the Democrats stood up; they were all screaming and hollering and throwing a fit. And Representative Hintz walked back—I sit in the back row behind all of the Democrats—and he pointed directly at me and said, ‘You are f’n dead!'”—Michelle Litjens, Wisconsin Republican Assemblywoman

Hintz phoned Monday morning and apologized to Litjens for his terroristic threat. Right now no major media outlets other than Fox News have reported on the story. They must figure Hintz’s apology sufficient and it’s time to move on.  

Just last week the three-term Oshkosh lawmaker apologized for receiving a sexual misconduct citation during a prostitution sting at the Heavenly Touch Massage Parlor in Appleton.

In the 4:03 animated video below, a progressive-minded teacher is questioned by a taxpayer about the union protests in Wisconsin. If you can get past the computer generated voices, the video reveals the typical mindset shared by so many leftists.

The following transcript excerpt is from the video:

Teacher:  “I can’t believe what is going on in Wisconsin.”

Taxpayer:  “What do you mean?”

Teacher:  “That conservative extremist governor Walker is trying to break the unions in Wisconsin.”

Taxpayer:  “He is?”

Teacher:  “Yes, look at the mess he created in Wisconsin. The public schools are closed. The state is not passing any bills.”

Taxpayer:  “Didn’t the Democrat senators flee to other states to block a vote? Didn’t the public teachers walk off their jobs while still being paid to teach? Aren’t they forcing the governor to lay off teachers?”

Teacher:  “They were forced to do that. That Republican extremist Walker is trying to destroy the middle class and they have to take a stand.”

Taxpayer:  “Didn’t the teachers’ unions demand that taxpayers pay for 100 per cent of their retirement and 100 per cent of their health care while the middle class has to work till 90 to pay for it?”

Teacher:  “The unions are fighting for the middle class”

Taxpayer:  “By demanding more money from the middle class for themselves?”


Teacher:  “This is all a national conspiracy created by the Koch brothers, by the Republicans, and by Fox News.”

Taxpayer:  “What makes you think that?”

Teacher:  “Rachael Maddow says so.”

Taxpayer:  “Do you believe everything she says?”

Teacher:  “Yes. Liberals like her are very smart, and they always tell the truth.”


Teacher:  “The unions are exercising their democracy by protesting.”

Taxpayer:  “Is that how you felt about the tea party protests?”

Teacher:  “No, the tea party is a bunch of racists who won’t accept the results of the 2008 election.”

Taxpayer:  “How about the results of the 2010 election?”

London’s High Court ruled yesterday that homosexual rights take precedence over Christian rights. The family court ruled that Owen and Eunice Johns’ Christian views on homosexuality could harm 5-8-year-old children and banned them from foster parenting.

The Equality and Human Rights Commission told the court that children risk being “infected” by Christian moral views, and the court agreed, ruling “The equality provisions [in The Equality Act (Sexual Orientation) Regulations 2007] concerning sexual orientation should take precedence.”

“This is a sad day for Christianity. The judges have suggested that our views might harm children. All we were not willing to do was to tell a small child that the practice of homosexuality was a good thing.”—Eunice Johns

The retired couple, who had been foster parents since 1992, had taken a break and reapplied to Derby City Council in 2007 to begin caring for children again, but social workers feared that their Christian beliefs about homosexuality would conflict with the 2007 Act.

Consequently, the couple sought clarification of the Act from the High Court over whether they should be excluded from foster parenting because they believe homosexuality is “against God’s law and morals.”

“We wanted to offer love and stability and security to a vulnerable child. Eight-year-olds we have looked after want to play, not talk about their sexuality.”—Owen Johns

Before the ruling, the couple had been foster parents for 15 children and was praised by social workers for being “kind and hospitable people” who “respond sensitively” to children.

Yesterday’s High Court ruling may set precedent for other councils to keep religious people who believe that homosexuality violates God’s law from becoming foster parents.

Derby City Council denied that it had discriminated against the Johns’ on the grounds of religious belief.

“[I]n the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection …” [Homosexuality is an unnatural affection practiced by homosexuals who “defile themselves with mankind.”]
