From WTOL-TV in Toledo, Ohio:"Merrill Keiser, Jr., is a trucker by trade, and he's hoping his next journey takes him all the way to Washington. His goal is a seat in the US Senate, but first he has to make it through the primary that will determine which Ohio Democrat will be the November ballot.
The Fremont man is causing some controversy with one of his beliefs. He tells News 11 homosexuality should be a felony, punishable by death. 'Just like we have laws against murder, we have laws against stealing, we have laws against taking drugs -- we should have laws against immoral conduct,' Keiser says."
What if this hate-filled moron called for the execution of all blacks or all Jews ? Would the public outcry be similarly subdued? Would the press still report it as a cute curiousity or merely an alternative viewpoint? Where is moral outrage in 2006?
Lest I be accused of picking on Republican crackpots, Mr. Keiser is a registered Democrat. He has never before run for political office, but now seeks to enter the Ohio Democratic primary for the US Senate seat presently held by the beleaguered Senator Mike DeWine (R-OH).
I just can't believe a Democrat would regurgitate this hate speech. He must be a Republican plant. Please...someone tell me I'm correct.....
