Slavery language dropped from “Marriage Vow” pledge, because it was “misconstrued”

Political Carnival, links and video.

In a previous post, I wrote about how Michele Bachmann and Rick Santorum signed a pledge that likely has many right wing extremists salivating, and that had some highly controversial, highly offensive language in it suggesting that black children were better off born into slavery.

The anti-porn language was removed last week (file that under, “Mission Impossible”), and now THE FAMiLY LEADER (per Think Progress, the lowercase “i” is meant to represent individual submission) is scrubbing the “Slavery = Family Values” part, too.

“Can be misconstrued.” “Misconstruction.” Yes, that’s right… if you were one of those idiots who thought the LEADER sounded racist, then they’re awfully sorry you somehow twisted their words, “a child born into slavery in 1860 was more likely to be raised by his mother and father in a two-parent household than was an African-American baby born after the election of the USA’s first African-American President” to mean something other than “Boy howdy, them slave kids were lucky ducks! They sure as heck had it good back in the day!”

The best part IMNSHO? Crazy Woman and Frothy Mixture had a contract changed on them after they signed it! IOKIYAR.


Liquid Alert!

Bachmann did not read pledge calling slavery a better arrangement for blacks

Santorum told CNN Sunday that he was "taken aback" by the pledge at first, but host Candy Crowley failed to ask him about the slavery claim.

You're supposed to read the fine print before you sign things, ya fuckin' idjits! Candy "Chins" Crowley is a Repug operative and ain't gonna question anything you do.
