SD Lawmaker Goes on Racially Charged, Homphobic Rant After Trying to Secede from USA

Posted by on Fri, Nov 23, 2012 at 11:19 AM

Lora Hubbel, a state representative for South Dakota's 11th District, recently signed a petition that asked Obama to "peacefully (let) the state of South Dakota withdraw from the United States of America and create its own new government."

While that might just seem like common prairie politics, the local paper, the Argus Leader, ran a letter from Sioux Falls resident Donna M. Yocom, who called the secession plea "hypocritical." After all, it came from from the same sort of Republicans who chastised Democrats as unAmerican for protesting the Iraq war. "When suddenly someone is elected whom they find less appealing and less likely to support their views, it is perfectly fine to want to leave the country entirely," Yocom's letter said. She added that Rep. Hubbel's participation was "appalling."

Well, Hubbel wouldn't let that stand.

Signing in with her Facebook account, Hubbel launched into a comment tear on the newspaper's website that alleges that "Obama isn't black...he's less than half black (Arab Black? maybe not even African black)." She went on—among other crazy quotes—to say that the problem with the federal government these days is this: "We teach out [sic] kids how to have free gay and experimental sex in the 6th grade."

But there's more—her full comments are after the jump.

Obama isn't black...he's less than half black (Arab Black? maybe not even African black)...would love to see Allen West, Alan Keys, JC WAtts and Clarence Thomas advanced....

ok…so I clicked a box that said “sign the petition”. The exact same petition has been there for the last 3 presidential elections, why the feigned outrage now? Where were you in 2004 and 2008? Here is why I am frustrated with our Federal Government: We kill our most precious innocents by abortion; We teach out kids how to have free gay and experimental sex in the 6th grade; We allow every form of uncivilized form of debauchery and call it tolerance; We silence our churches and confine them to the 4 walls of a building; We mock prayer and Christianity and anyone who dares to defend it is ridiculed and targeted; We start wars just for political and economic purposes and watch our young men and women die or become maimed (why not? we allow the cheapening of life in the womb); We now have a totalitarian HealthCare law by Daschle’s (co-author)own words has nothing to do with “cost savings”…but everything do about controlling behavior. So out of frustration I clicked a box …EVEN after years of writing pro-American articles and being an advocate for the underdogs …. EVEN after saying there really is no way for us to secede…. EVEN after trying for years to better South Dakota and warn people about the road we are traveling down…. How dare I? instead of playing wordsmith in an editorial – just call me.

Hubbel did not return a Facebook message seeking evidence that Obama isn't black or evidence of that we teach kids "how to have free gay and experimental sex in the 6th grade."

Her campaign web site is all sorts of crazy. It reads like a parody site:

@4 - Thanks for the heads up on her site, you're right - it does read like a parody. But sadly that is what she and most of her kind are.

From what the Internet sometimes tells me, that's how they teach sex ed in Japan. Obama's only getting us caught up with the rest of the First World.

WHERE just where do people like her get their world view? What school EVER taught free gay sex let alone the reasonably priced Gay sex? And to 6th graders no less. College does not even teach Free Gay Sex 101. WHERE is that school? What church is silenced? Westboro Baptist screams bloody hell at every funeral it can crash. The Catholic Church is constantly blaming other people for its ills. And JWs and Mormons and any other religion is free to preach its message outside of "the 4 walls of a building". Who elected that nutty woman into office?

well she might be right about Obama, I mean, have you ever seen him try to dance - Ellen has better moves (but I don't know what "Arab Black" is????)

Seriously, this is hilarious, glad she had to shut down her FB page

It was this bit that got my attention:
We start wars just for political and economic purposes and watch our young men and women die or become maimed

Why? Because on that point she agrees with most liberals. Which means, were our political system not clearly divided into a binary of all-issues-bundled-together-in-one-party platform, it might be a hopeful indicator of broad popular support for cutting the military budget. But as it stands, if one opposes her other views, one has no choice but to reject cooperation with the constituency she represents on this point of agreement.
