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.

An African-American poll worker known only as ‘Michael’ first reported the incident to Nance and others also came forward to tell what they heard. According to Nance, “During the conversation, Ms. Brunstetter said her husband was the architect of Amendment 1, and one of the reasons he wrote it was to protect the Caucasian race. She said Caucasians or whites created this country. We wrote the Constitution. This is about protecting the Constitution. There already is a law on the books against same-sex marriage, but this protects the Constitution from activist judges.”

Nance then sought to clear the matter up with Brunstetter, giving her chance to explain. Brunstetter confirmed that she said ‘Caucasians,’ but she couldn’t explain why she said it after being pressed. She claims her statements were taken out of context.
