Ellen's Message to Rep. Sally Kern

If you haven't heard the latest bit of gay bashing ridiculousness, Oklahoma State Representative Sally Kern went on an ignorance-filled tirade and someone recorded it. Then it hit YouTube and someone made a video out of it. And then an online protest cropped up and suddenly it was national news. And this last week, chat show host Ellen DeGeneres addressed the issue on her show.

Here is the video from Victory Fund, a group that helps to elect members of the LGBT community to political office, featuring audio of Rep. Kern's hate-speech, alongside video of the "I'm Listening" online protest.

Learn more about the Victory Fund and their protest. And find out more about the Sally Kern scandal and it's fallout over at Pam's House Blend.
