Democrat-Gazette Supports Holt Campaign!

....by endorsing Bill Halter.

Why is this man smiling?

I am going to blast the Demo-Zette's endorsement so hard that if I had typed it in North Korea the world would believe that they had tested another nuke. To read my nuclear de-construction of the Democrat-Gazette editotrial endorsement, click TUESDAY below and scroll down, or if sent straight here just scroll down.

The Democrat-Gazette gave Senator Jim Holt another boost in his campaign for Lt. Governor in their column which endorsed his opponent, Democrat Bill Halter.

In 04, the Democrat-Gazette harshly condemned Holt for defending traditional marriage by supporting the Federal Marriage Amendment in his race for U.S. Seante against Blanche Lincoln. The Demo-zette, being more enlightened than us regular folk, is all in favor of homosexual marriage, civil unions, et al.

It is now two years later and the recent ruling in New Jersey makes it more clear than ever that Holt was right and Senator Lincoln was wrong. We need a Federal Marriage Amendment to protect traditional marriage from redefintion by activist state judges.

Reasonable people can see that, but the Demo-Zette can't, because they don't want marriage protected at either the state of federal level. At any rate, their liberal tirades against Holt as a bigot and a demogouge probably earned him some votes. Too bad it was not enough in 04.

This time, the Demo-Zette suggests Holt is a bigot and a demogouge because he wants to do everything possible at the state level to discourage illegal immigration. "Thanks Demo-zette, you socialist rascals" Holt must be saying. People are upset about our government's willfull failure to protect us from a flood of illegal aliens. Holt speaks to their concerns.

What is the difference between a "demogouge" and and man who expresses the legitimate concerns of the population? It must be whether or not you are liberal enough for the Democrat-Gazette!

There IS a demogouge in the race for Lt. Governor, but its not Holt, its Bill Halter and Team Democrat. They are the ones trying to terrify the elderly with communications about Jim Holt trying to take away Social Security- which is not only dishonest, but it is not an issue in a state race and they know it.

But the issue that Halter has demogouged the most on is the minimum wage. Halter is not dumb and he is an economist. Unlike most of the voters, he has to know that if Arkansas raises our minimum wage and the surrounding states do not it is going to cost us jobs. It is going to make us less competitive. It is going to hurt the elderly on fixed incomes. He knows, but he doesn't care, because he's a demagouge. He sees the polls are for a government set wage hike so he comes out for it.

Holt could have gone along on the wage hike, but he didn't. He did the right thing whether it was popular or not- the very opposite of the Dem-Zet's portrayal of him. The Democrat-Gazette turns the truth on it's head when they accuse Holt of being the demogouge. It is clearly Halter.

The Democrat-Gazette may be evil, but they are not stupid. They are decidedly tepid in their endorsement of Mr. Halter, stressing how they would like to know more about him. They know plenty, and are trying to leave themselves an out when this guy turns out to be a time bomb with delusions of grandeur. They know Halter is bad news, but in their minds saddling Arkanas with him is a small price to pay to get rid of Jim Holt.

Arkansas, you have a choice. You can vote for the guy who has the endorsement of the Democrat-Gazette, who favors every big-spending program that comes along, including scholarships for illegal aliens, or you can vote for Senator Jim Holt. He does not have the endorsement of the Democrat-Gazette, but Holt does have the endorsements of the following organizations that Arkansans have come to trust:

Arkansas Right to Life; National Rifle Association; National Federation of Small Businesses; Five Groups concerned about Illegal Immigration; the past President of the Rural School Superintendent's Association; the Firefighter's ; the Fraternal Order of Police; and just about every group there is to the right of Ted Kennedy!

If you vote against Holt because of what those bullies at the Democrat-Gazette say, then you are voting against the advice of all of those groups. Please don't let the Ministry of Propaganda AKA the Democrat-Gazette pick your leaders!

Arkansas State Sen. Jim Holt (R-Springdale) likes to demagogue. In 2005, Holt targeted undocumented immigrants, partnering with a man with anti-Semitic views and ties to white supremacist organizations in an effort to pass hard-line anti-immigrant legislation. (Holt later distanced himself from Joe McCutchen of Protect Arkansas Now.) Now, Holt's target is gay people. Holt told National Public Radio in August that there "are thousands of studies, actually I've got over 10,000" of them that show "the homosexual family or the environment is problematic for the child."

As pointed out by Media Matters for America, a reputable watchdog website, the 10,000 figure would only be possible if a such a study had been released every day for the past 27 years.
Holt was reacting angrily to the July decision by the Arkansas Supreme Court that overturned that state's ban on gay foster parents. The court ruled that the ban was based on a particular morality rather than science, and that no research on sexual orientation had found a negative effect on foster children's welfare. Scientific studies from the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Psychological Association support the ruling.

Holt said he picked up the 10,000 number from another anti-gay demagogue, Focus on the Family founder James Dobson. Dobson made that remarkable claim in his 2004 book, Marriage Under Fire: Why We Must Win This Battle. According to Media Matters, Dobson provides no source whatsoever.

The national immigration debate is also suffering from propagandistic number inflation. Robert Rector, a senior research fellow at the conservative Heritage Foundation, issued a report in June alleging that the immigration reforms then being considered by the U.S. Senate would add at least 100 million people to the United States over 20 years, ballooning the size of the population by a third.

Rector's study seemed to defy the most elementary logic. As critics later pointed out, his minimum figure of 100 million is equal to almost the entire current population of Mexico. His high-end estimate of 190 million over the next 20 years would require that the equivalent of the current population of Central America be added, too. A series of leading demographers told the San Francisco Chronicle that Rector's projections were vastly overstated, ignored the effects of emigration and used unreasonably high estimates of legalization and naturalization. Nevertheless, based on his report, two Democratic senators changed their positions and the Senate then passed an amendment sharply limiting a future guest worker program.

Is it too late to change my vote? If I had known Holt was endorsed by the Arkansas Right to life, I might have voted for him.

this site houses the writing of desperate people (some on Holt's payroll) with little to do and little commonsense and decency.

y'all really should move out of the 1950's and open the door to the year 2006.

somewhere there is an insane asylum missing some patients.

I'll take Holt over Halter any day of the week. Holt represents my views as a conservative very well. We certainly don't need porno-Halter serving as Lt. Gov. Senator Holt will serve this state very well as Lt. Gov. and it will be a great night when he wins next Tuesday.

I think it's the arguably the surest statewide race the Arkansas Republicans have this election.
