Well, this is chivalrous! Days after Krystal Ball gave birth to her second child, a nasty piece of work called a GOP strategist took to his column to call on Social Services to take away her 5-year old daughter, Ella. Why? Because Ball had the temerity to explain that marriage isn't always between a man and a woman. Right Wing Watch:
GOP strategist Raynard Jackson has a new anti-gay column in Charisma today that calls on social services to take MSNBC host Krystal Ball’s daughter away from her for “indoctrinat[ing] her daughter about homosexual marriage.”
“Social services should remove Ella from this house because her mother is without question an unfit parent,” Jackson writes. “What Ball did to her daughter may not be child abuse legally, but morally it is definitely abuse, and I am amazed that even liberals of goodwill have not criticized her for such abuse.”
What terrible thing could Krystal Ball have done? That video at the top, where she talks to her daughter about marriage and that it's not always one mommy and one daddy, but sometimes two mommies or two daddies. Mind you, this happened in April. Back then the winger blogs along with Breitbart and others tried to make a big splash out of it, and then it died out.
But one scumbag strategist thought it would be really cute to wait until she couldn't speak out in her own defense and went on the attack.
He claims that progressives want to “take another person’s child and brainwash them into believing that homosexual marriage is OK” and “brainwash innocent children to perpetuate their radical liberalism.”
“Is it OK for Ball’s 5-year-old to begin experimenting with kissing boys and girls or touching her classmates in intimate places?” he asks.
Only in this man's dreams did something like that happen, and that should tell you something about the GOP. Reach out to gays, women and Latinos? Why on earth would Republicans do that, when they have so much fun bashing them? Let's just keep that up right through November, 2014, GOP. I'll enjoy watching your party fizzle out like rain on a sparkler.
And Krystal? Congratulations to you, hubby, Ella and baby Lowell from all of us here at C&L.
