Tennessee Lunatic GOP Stacey Campfield Pushing Texas-Style ‘Merry Christmas’ Bill (Video)

Stacey Campfield, the Republican Tennessee state Senator who has made quite a name for himself with his controversial statements and legislation, is at it again. This time, he is channeling Rick Perry and the state of Texas, which is NEVER a good thing to do, by introducing his version of the “Merry Christmas” bill.

Despite not being able to come up with a single instance of a Christmas controversy in any Tennessee public school, Campfield has decided that his state just has to have this bill, named SB 1425, because of an imaginary threat to Christmas trees in public schools all across Tennessee.

“This stops all these silly lawsuits that say you can’t say ‘merry Christmas’ or ‘happy Hanukkah’ or have a Christmas tree,” said Campfield.

Campfield’s lone reason given for the bill is that he knows people who are “afraid of lawsuits”, and that the “ACLU is always freaking out about that stuff.”

Hedy Weinberg, executive director of the ACLU in Tennessee, said “Sen. Campfield is envisioning a problem that does not exist. As Gov. Haslam has said, legislators should not be filing legislation just to be wasting paper, and this seems to be one of the things that would be in that category.”

Indeed.

Campfield is infamous for his “Don’t Say Gay” bill, as well as another bill that would lower the amount of public assistance to families with kids with poor grades or school attendance, and he believes that AIDS started when a homosexual man had sex with a monkey.

Watch this David Pakman video that exposes the idiocy of Campfield, as well as an 8-year-old girl, Aamira Fetuga, who follows Campfield around and helped force him to drop his bill tying kids grades to welfare.

    Personally, I really don’t care if someone uses their child in a benign manner, such as this. That really is a non issue in most cases. What I do care about is getting idiots like Campfield and his fellow Teapubs out of ALL government positions. They are intent on foisting their personal favorite flavor of “Christianity on the rest of us and he is a prime example of the stealth method they have chosen to do it.
    They figured out that they will never succeed by going directly to the national level and making the big changes for the whole country in one fell swoop. This is not going to deter them from doing what they see as “God’s work”, returning us to the “Christian” nation that we never were. They think that by doing it one state at a time they will eventually gain the power to inflict their heinous agenda upon the nation as a whole.
    This “Merry Christmas” bill sounds too much like the Texas bill to believe that it is a coincidence, without taking the time to look it up I think it is fair to guess that it may be another bill created by ALEC. Even if it is not I think it would behoove all states to find out which of their legislators are associated with this disgusting organization and remove them from office. There is no place in a free nation for a corporation whose only function is to write law subverting the Constitution and the ideals upon which this nation was founded.

    In regards to Campfield’s proposed legislation that would lower the amount of public assistance to families with kids with poor grades (in the David Pakman video) : The politician’s proposed legislation will, in effect, burden children with the responsibility of providing food for the child’s family by linking food stamps, etc to the child’s academic performance. That’s an obnoxious idea and the mother, in this instance, was not out of line by confronting the politician with her daughter in hand.
