This is disgusting.I am a strong Democrat and supporter of our President,
and have watched this go on for years.There is no excuse for this, for
birtherism, or other lies/racist agendas.
This is disgusting -- I do not support Mia Love, but whoever
did this should be punished!Our society should be above this.It's just sick!
I do not support Love and I think she is in way over her head. That being said,
racism has no place in our society. This is further evidence that we still have
a problem. That being said, for Love to blame Obama policies for this is beyond
offensive itself. The sender of this material is really messed up, but then so
is Love. She just stooped to the level of the offensive material she received.
I totally agree that this is way out of bounds. However, the fact that there
were images of aborted fetuses raises the issue to me that this is probably a
rabid pro-lifer who is discontented with their own candidate.
"He said it included a picture of Love and her husband, Jason, and a hooded
Ku Klux Klan character. There also were pictures of aborted fetuses, he said."I couldn't tell if it was threatening or anything. It kind of
shocked me, what I saw," he said."Why wouldn't the KKK
be considered threatening? Does this guy think the Klan just has knitting
parties? Also, I'm not sure why "Esquire" thinks that
"she just stooped to the level of the offensive material she
received"?Racism is still very much a problem in our society and
in Utah. It is really sickening.
Every time I read something about Mia Love, I respect her all the more. She is a
genuine class act, and I wish she was running in my district so I could vote for
Hate, unfortunately, is alive and well in many parts of Utah. In my own high
priest group, hateful remarks about other religions, and frequently outright
racist comments are heard. There are times when I simply skip the quorum
meetings because I can't stomach any more of it.
Darn good thing she's not a Democrat, else nearly every publication and
station in the country would be amplifying and elaborating on the story, Obama
would be jumping in the fray, and Romney would have to explain why all
Republicans are racist, sexist bigots--which would doubtless result in some kind
of "gaffe" on his part, which would in turn start another ground swell
of publicity and criticism.
@ EsquireThat being said, for Love to blame Obama policies for this is
beyond offensive itself. The sender of this material is really messed up, but
then so is Love. She just stooped to the level of the offensive material she
received.--Can you please tell me where you are getting your
information that she blamed the Obama administration or his policies for this
act? Nowhere in the article does it say anything about that. Please read the
article before posting on here and making foolish comments that are untruthful.
Why is Love messed up? Oh, because she doesn't agree with you or Emperor
Obama on his crackhead policies and wants to change things? She is a class act
and I wish I was in her District so I could vote for her as well.
Lets not dismiss the possibility that this could be a case of the Missourians
burning their own cabins. How could the Utah Democrats benefit from such junk?
Uh Oh. My "Ruse just to garner increased public support"
Alert just went off.
As Mayor love has a twenty point lead I doubt she needs more public support.
Esquire, you're sick. Liberalism is a disease. Besides that -- you're
telling us the person who did this isn't an Obama supporter? That's
ripe. It was probably Harry Reid.
Yeah, but has Harry Reid demanded, on the Senate floor, that she "prove"
what she's claiming?
I don't know. Within my own ward, there are some characters who don't
even try to mask their hatred. But most other ward members seem afraid to say
anything, and those of us who speak up are shunned. Even our ward leadership is
either frightened of these people are are in silent agreement.There
are times when I simply get up and walk out.
one old man,too bad you don't have to prove you are the real deal.

don't believe you.
"I can say it's racial in nature but I can't tell you it's
criminal in nature," he said.If there is no crime, what are you
investigating?There is no law against a person sending pictures to
another person, even if they are "disturbing" pictures. If the pictures
constitute evidence of a crime, or if they are slanderous, then there is
something criminal that should warrant an investigation.If not, then
What crime is being investigated here?Racism and prejudice are
abhorant. But unless they manifest as criminal behavior, the Constitution
guarantees US citizens the right to dislike others for whatever reason they
@one old manI'm having a hard time believing your story. I've
belonged to quite a few wards in my lifetime and have never ran across the
behavior you are describing.
Anyone want to make a run to Wendover for some bets on who is eventually
identified as the despicable scum sending stuff like that?a. A
right wing fanatic?b. An avid leftist supporter of tolerance and
diversity?and just for fun how about this question:Will
the media coverage of the culprit be the same for either type person, or more or
less if it is (a) right winger or (b) liberal?
Cheers to Mia! You're terrific and you will represent our state well in
Does anyone know if the President has placed a call to her, yet? Or, he might
delegate that responsibility to Sandra Fluke.
Hey, DN Subscriber (Cottonwood Heights, UT), you forgot to add:c.
"I want you to know, I want everyone to know I am comfortable in my skin.
I'm comfortable and proud of my heritage. I'm proud of who I am. I
know where I'm going and I know what we need to do to get this country back
in order again. There isn’t anything that anyone can send me that will
distract me from that so they can bring it,"Now THAT is why I
love this lady!Okay, maybe it's her push for financial
progress. But either way, that is one awesome response!
