Ludmya “Mia” Bourdeau Love (born 1975) is the mayor of Saratoga Springs, Utah, and the Republican Party 2012 nominee in Utah’s 4th congressional district. She will face six-term incumbent Democratic Representative Jim Matheson for the seat in November 2012.
Someone apparently forgot to tell Mia Love that the Republican party hates women, blacks and Mormons, because she’s all three. She’s also a conservative. The Democrats aren’t happy about about the infringement on their racial monopoly. MSNBC (The Official Network of the Obama Campaign) literally blacked her out:
When popular Tea Party candidate Ted Cruz, the GOP nominee for Senate, took the stage, MSNBC cut away from the Republican National Convention and the Hispanic Republican from Texas’ speech.
MSNBC stayed on commercial through former Democratic Rep. Artur Davis’ speech, as well. Davis, who recently became a Republican, is black. Then, when Puerto Rican Governor Luis Fortuno’s wife Luce’ Vela Fortuño took the stage minutes later, MSNBC hosts Rachel Maddow and Chris Matthews opted to talk over the First Lady’s speech. And Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval? Noticeably missing from MSNBC, too. Mia Love, a black candidate for Congress in Utah, was also ignored by MSNBC.
I don’t know about you but I tune into political conventions for the same reason I tune into ball games – to watch the action, not to hear the announcers talk.
How bizarre did things get last night?
The Grio is “the official NBC News community devoted [to] perspectives that affect and reflect the African-American community.”
But the sexism award for the evening goes to Juan Williams, the token “liberal” at FOX News. He said that Ann Romney “looked to me like a corporate wife.” That is one of the standard sexist attacks on all Republican women – they are just Stepford wives that are incapable of independent thought or action.
Why does the party of women and minorities hate women and minorities?
