Before Sharron Angle was the Republican candidate for Senate from Nevada, she was a member of the far-right Independent American Party. Angle switched parties in 1997 when she wanted to run for statewide office. The Independent American Party is a "Christian conservative-cum-libertarian third party," according to Talking Points Memo.
Back in 1994, the fringe third party placed a 16 page insert in the state's newspapers advocating for a state amendment that would explicitly okay discrimination against the LGBT community by businesses and government. The insert also advertised their new bumperstickers you could buy for $1; it read "Homophobia - No | Homonausea - Yes."
The ad insert, which approvingly cites an 1814 legal treatise titled "Consequences of Sodomy: Ruin of a Nation," is a digest of articles that refer to LGBT people alternately as "homosexuals," "sodomites," and "brazen perverts." The insert includes virtually every homophobic myth ever conceived.
Probably the coup de grace of the insert is the article "Can the HIV Virus Survive in Water?". Writer Lorraine Day, M.D., concluded that yes, the virus can survive in the water. Citing medical journal articles, she raised the specter of HIV infection through public pools, hot tubs, and municipal water supplies.
A copy of the horrifying insert is after the jump.
