Las Vegas Weekly Calls Mississippians “Hatemongers” Based On Un-Researched Lies

They covered the Religious Freedom Acts passage because of the MGM and Caesars Entertainment own Casinos in Mississippi.

After talking about the Arizona “turn away the gays” bill, they directed their attention toward MS to compare the Religious Freedom Bill Act to the legislation there saying:

 

a nearly identical measure flew through the legislature in Mississippi and was happily signed by Gov. Phil Bryant on April 3. In a state where gay people still have virtually no protections anyway, SB2681 makes it super-double-with-a-cherry-on-top okay to tell a gay couple to f*ck off.

 

 

They continue to throw around derogatory comments about Mississippians by saying:

Mississippi is not Arizona. There are precious few massive national companies with significant presences there. Lawmakers in Jackson don’t live in fear of being humiliated as bigots on cable news; theirs is a shameless, almost quaint, homophobia.

 

It has already been established that the bill has nothing to do with gay people and private business, but those on the left continue to push their version of hate on others and accuse them of the same.   There is no language in the bill that says that and I encourage the you to read the bill and all the definitions for yourself here.

They could not understand why those Casinos that have stood up for LGBT rights in the past did not speak up.
That would be because it doesn’t do any of the things these people have fabricated it do.

Where were they, then, when Mississippi was pulling a move that Arizona got scathed for only a month earlier? Silent. And where were they when I reached out repeatedly to find out why they didn’t do anything to oppose the Mississippi law? Silent yet again.

 It is their obligation there for the same reason it was their obligation in Nevada, because they are the biggest fish with the most economic clout, and that’s the only thing that persuades hatemongers not to legislate their hate.

 

You can read the whole article here if you would like, but it just goes to show how some people are willing to jump on a complete lie in order to bring “sensationalism” to Journalism.

MS Senator Chris McDaniel Calls Sour Immigration “Crony Capitalism”! Pledges to oppose it.

Standard

Mississippi State Senator Chris McDaniel is now the first to sign the F.A.I.R. (Federation for American Immigration Reform) Pledge.

F.A.I.R. is for “True” immigration reform. This includes: 

No Amnesty, Secure Boarders, End Visa Overstays, Stopping The Hiring Of Non Legal Workers, Enforcement Of Current Laws, Implement A Merritt Based Immigration Selection Process,  End Family Chain Migration, Limit Overall Immigration Numbers, and Support The American Worker.

Brietbart.com quoted McDaniel saying:

    

“What we’ve seen over the past several years is a combination of wage stagnation, growth in welfare programs and even shrinking workforce participation. That comes in large part because of out of control illegal immigration but also because of increased numbers of legal immigration,” McDaniel said. “We have millions of Americans who don’t have a job, plus we have millions who are on public benefits,” he said. “How about we find a way to put those people back to work?”

 

“It is a form of crony capitalism, and Haley Barbour is dead wrong about this—and by extension Sen. Cochran is dead wrong about this,” McDaniel said. “That’s why you see a number of those individuals [both leftwing and rightwing special interests] who normally don’t share much in common reaching across the aisle and compromising on this issue. But this issue is not subject to compromise. This is one of those issues where we must draw a line in the sand and be strong and courageous,” he added.
