NC Politico’s Wife: Marriage Ban Needed “To Protect the Caucasian Race”

The hits just keep coming, don’t they? Chad Nance, a Winston-Salem freelance journalist who is currently active in electoral politics, spoke with poll workers about a conversation they had with Jodie Brunstetter, wife of state Sen. Peter Brunstetter, who is described as the architect of Amendment 1:

Nance paraphrased the remarks, as told to him by those who were present: “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 said he recruited a friend, who works for the Coalition to Protect All North Carolina Families, to witness his interview with Jodie Brunstetter. He said Brunstetter reluctantly acknowledged that she had used the term “Caucasian” and then repeated the statement previously attributed to her, but substituted the pronoun “we” for “Caucasian.” Nance said Brunstetter insisted there was nothing racial about her remarks, but could not explain why she used the term “Caucasian.”

An edited transcript from the video Nance took of his conversation with Ms. Brunstetter is here. The video itself has not been posted.

Now this is quite interesting. They’re trying to say letting same sex couple marry would be detrimental to the white race?

That is just wrong on so many levels.

Well, didn’t the NOM document dump pretty much explain in detail how the only time African Americans or Hispanics are useful to the anti-gays is when they think those people will be anti-gay??

I remember back in the 80’s when gay issues were seen as primarily white. Looks like the paradigm has flipped, eh? Now the anti-gays are the white priviledge based “elites” so much for the “liberal elites” they keep ranting about, eh??

I’m surprised they didn’t actually try and use the whole demographic winter conspiracy theory.

This crap is ridiculous, cut the skin and we all bleed the same color. People need to grow the fuck up.

I don’t trust this. It just makes no sense.

Are “Neanderthals” a protected class? Didn’t know they could actually utter such psycho-babel.

ive said all along that all this hatred showed towards obama is racist in nature. its not about policy or socialism or marxism etc etc. this again coupled with the NOM information shows that the republican party despite all there denials are a party of white evangelical thinkers who are racist in there very nature. “conservatives” have left the building, “christianist” have taken over.

What Are Little Boys Made Of?

In this original BTB Investigation, we unveil the tragic story of Kirk Murphy, a four-year-old boy who was treated for “cross-gender disturbance” in 1970 by a young grad student by the name of George Rekers.

Slouching Towards Kampala: Uganda’s Deadly Embrace of Hate

When we first reported on three American anti-gay activists traveling to Kampala for a three-day conference, we had no idea that it would be the first report of a long string of events leading to a proposal to institute the death penalty for LGBT people. But that is exactly what happened. In this report, we review our collection of more than 500 posts to tell the story of one nation’s embrace of hatred toward gay people. This report will be updated continuously as events continue to unfold. Check here for the latest updates.

Paul Cameron’s World

In 2005, the Southern Poverty Law Center wrote that “[Paul] Cameron’s ‘science’ echoes Nazi Germany.” What the SPLC didn”t know was Cameron doesn’t just “echo” Nazi Germany. He quoted extensively from one of the Final Solution’s architects. This puts his fascination with quarantines, mandatory tattoos, and extermination being a “plausible idea” in a whole new and deeply disturbing light.
