“I hear you loud and clear, Barack Obama. You don’t represent the country that I grew up with. And your values is [sic] not going to save us. We’re going to take this country back for the Lord. We’re going to try to take this country back for conservatism. And we’re not going to allow minorities to run roughshod over what you people believe in!” Arkansas State Senator Jason Rapert (R-Of Course)
Wow. If this is Republican Outreach, they’re doing it wrong.
Rapert is the sponsor of a bill that passed in state senate that would ban abortions after six weeks. Clearly it’s unconstitutional and will probably be struck down in the courts if it passes and and signed by the governor. But once again, another example of how state and local governments are going nuts — and we need to pay closer attention.
