Addicting Info: Wife Of NC GOP Senator Says Banning Same-Sex Marriage Protects The White Race

-By Stephen D. Foster Jr.

May 2, 2012- When we think of same-sex marriage, we don’t usually think of it as a racial issue. We think of it as an equality issue. But in North Carolina apparently, it’s a racial issue as recently admitted by Jodie Brunstetter.

Jodie Brunstetter is the wife of Republican Senator Peter Brunstetter, the man who authored Amendment 1 in North Carolina, which if approved by the people, would ban same-sex marriage via the state Constitution. On Tuesday during early voting at the Forsyth County Government Center in downtown Winston-Salem, Chad Nance, a freelance journalist, reports that Jodie Brunstetter allegedly told a group of opponents of the Amendment that banning same-sex marriage is about protecting the Caucasian race and making sure that white people reproduce to keep the balance of power tipped in their favor.

May 2, 2012: Longtime white supremacist and border vigilante JT Ready saw himself as part of a war that few others would fight. He amassed weapons. He donned a uniform. He formed his own brigade of volunteers to walk alongside him as he hunted what he described as “narco terrorists” flowing across the Arizona-Mexico border.

On Wednesday, reports out of Arizona said Ready died, not at the hands of drug runners, but with his own gun during a mad rampage inside a suburban home just east of Phoenix. Along the way, the reports said, he took the lives of four other people, including a toddler.

Talking Points Memo: Wife Of NC Amendment One Supporter: Husband Wrote Bill To Preserve ‘Caucasian Race’

-By Tom Kludt

May 2, 2012- The wife of a sponsor of North Carolina’s Amendment One, a proposed change to the state’s constitution that would ensure legal recognition only for marriage between a man and a woman, reportedly offered an eyebrow-raising explanation for her husband’s support of the measure.

Jodie Brunstetter, the wife of state Sen. Peter Brunstetter (R), has found herself embroiled in controversy after suggesting that her husband’s role in writing the bill — which passed the Republican-controlled general assembly last fall — was racially motivated.
