Tennessee is a national embarrassment. They’re the new Alabama (not that the old Alabama is any great shakes). They’re still racist, and now seem more and more liberated to spout other forms of bigotry, including homophobia and religious bigotry against Muslims. We even had to create our own “label” for Tennessee here on AMERICAblog Gay, because there are so many stories about how bigoted that state is.
These people are freaking nuts. And they run the Republican party of Tennessee, and are far too influential in the Republican party nationally.
We have some extremely backwards parts of our country, and sadly they’ve taken over one of the two political parties.
