Will Past Pro-‘Gay Marriage’ Video Hurt Wisconsin GOP Congressional Candidate Sean Duffy?

Will MTV ‘Real World’ Star Turned Politician Compromise on Homosexuality?

WARNING: OFFENSIVE IMAGES AND DESCRIPTIONS

Sean Duffy appeared in a 2003 movie, 'The Wedding Video,' which promotes "gay marriage" and includes some crass scenes. In this one, someone drew lewd graffiti and images on the car of the homosexual partner of 'Wedding Video' protagonist Norm Korpi. In the movie, Korpi is "engaged" unknowingly to a male homosexual porn star. The pink text at top is from a video critical of Duffy's role in the movie, created by Duffy's primary opponent, Dan Mielke.

Normally preparing to write a story about a congressional race — especially a Republican primary contest in northern Wisconsin — does not require watching a pro-homosexual “marriage” mockumentary featuring MTV “reality” stars, and created by the founder of “Gay Entertainment Television.”

Yet that is what I found myself doing for this story about the 7th Congressional primary race in Wisconsin between Republicans Sean Duffy and Dan Mielke. The two are vying to replace retiring Rep. David Obey, chairman of the House Appropriations Committee and one of the most powerful Democrats on Capitol Hill. Wisconsin’s primary is today, Sept. 14, 2010. 

Mielke, an organic farmer, is making his second run at Congress after losing 61-39 to Obey in 2008. He has made an issue out of Duffy’s role in the 2003 film The Wedding Video, by homosexual artist Norman Korpi. Both Duffy (Real World: Boston) and Korpi were cast members of MTV’s Real World — a “reality” TV show in which young people chosen from across the country are thrown together to live as housemates with cameras running. Duffy’s wife Rachel (formerly Rachel Campos) was also a star on Real World: San Francisco, and is a friend of Korpi, who introduced her to her future husband. Sean and Rachel Duffy now have six kids.

Does Adultery Matter? Liberal Blogger Rich Miller Blasts RFFV; Conservative Illinois Review Ignores Debra Olson Cheating Sex Scandal

Below is reprinted from Americans For Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH). Note also that as of Tuesday afternoon, the influential “conservative” blog Illinois Review had yet to pick up on RFFV’s Debra Olson/Brien Sheahan adultery story. However, thanks in part to Dave Diersen’s GOPUSA e-mail — which circulates widely to Republicans statewide — many in the GOP are talking about the story.  AFTAH writes:

Does a Candidate’s Adulterous Past Matter? Just Ask Rich Miller…

Over at Republicans For Family Values, a political site, I examine the case of a local DuPage County, Illinois candidate running on a strong “pro-family” record — Debra Olson — who has engaged in adulterous affairs — as revealed mainly by the aggrieved wife of David Allen, Olson’s former illicit partner. To some voters, that’s a serious issue and a big story. To others, it’s just that much more “religious right” prudery.

Here’s how Illinois liberal political blogger Rich Miller (Capitol Fax Blog) tries to slam my RFFV story:

One of Peter LaBarbera’s websites is currently attempting to out a suburban county candidate for having adulterous affairs. No link [read: Miller refuses to link to the story]. Try to avoid the Google. It’s really disgusting. LaBarbera has stooped to a new low.

Ouch, Rich. You wouldn’t want your readers to actually READ the piece you are criticizing, would you? Bottom line: Miller is an intolerant leftie who hates social-issues conservatives. Why is it a “new low” to investigate and expose serious moral compromise in the life a very public Republican “Christian pro-family” leader? (Of course, when Miller exposes hypocrites, it’s OK.)

Letter: The Liberals in the Media are Winning!

Now that John McCain and Sarah Palin are finally going after Barack Obama on his extremist associations and core values (something they should have done a long time ago), the media is attacking them for bringing up dated history and not focusing on the one thing all Americans really care about … the economic crisis. And when McCain and Palin also address the economic crisis, and tie in Mr. Obama and his fellow Dems to the root cause of the crisis, they accuse them of “mud-slinging” and negative politics (which they say no one wants to hear).

Where were the media when Obama and his cronies viciously, and most often falsely, attacked everyone from John McCain and Sarah Palin to an abortion survivor who only asked that Barack Obama consider her plight in his abortion position? Complicit, and AWOL.

How do the Republicans win the White House when nearly everything they say goes through the liberal filters in the media?
