Mia Love – the candidate the Democrats don’t want you to know about


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?

    According to the Vile Progs sexism and racism are bad unless women and minorities step out of line.

  2. well myiq2xu—–you have asked the question of our age. My take as always is that the thought of women uniting to use their power in numbers to steamroller everyone else is such a scary thought that we invent these fissures or anything else to desperately prevent women from coalescing. And as you said Mia Love is a three-fer. For me she was far and away the best speaker of the night last night bar none. She made me cry, and I’m not much of a crier. Tears of possibility, hope, inspiration. Imagine that……

      I am right there with you Cynthia Ruccia. She and Nikki Haley both. I had to find Mia Love’s speech because I wasn’t home from work in time to see it. But I didn’t miss much once I found it. They way MSNBC manipulated its viewers last night was criminal. Really, they should be taken to task at the FCC. They did not serve as the Fourth Estate. They served “at the pleasure of the pResident”.
      Women have so much power. It’s too bad that women who were taugh to be people pleasers do not please (or serve) their own best interests.
      It has taken me a lifetime to see that.

      • you’re right Leslie—Nikki Haley was amazing!!! Both daughterts of immigrants who didn’t get invested into the victim mentality

      • cj says:

        I thought Nikki Haley was outstanding, but missed most of Mia Love because none of the networks, not even FOX, bothered to cover her.

        FOX is blowing it big time with Juan Williams. Not one of their viewers tuned in to listen to the sexist, condescending snot dump all over Ann Romney. I was watching & it was so unexpected & so inappropriate that I literally gasped. Then I changed the channel.

    Thanks for posting this since I missed it last evening.
    The media effectively put Ms. Love into a burqa and rendered her invisible for the crime of being… a self-empowered woman.

    Once upon a time, Geraldine Ferraro’s candidacy on the national ticket was a source of pride and recognition for women. I cannot fathom what happened to the Democrats but I look at Republican women and see strength, resilience and power. I look at Democrat women and see party line shills appearing in grotesque and demeaning vagina costumes. What the hell is going on here?

  6. tommy says:

    Now that Mia Love has got national exposure, expect the dems, especially the dem minorities to tarnish and demonize her beyond recognition. She also spoke against O, so theres gonna be hell to pay. I feel bad for her. Shes just a congressional candidate.

    • myiq2xu says:

      What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.

    • elliesmom says:

      You don’t need to feel bad for Mia Love. Just like you don’t need to feel bad for Sarah Palin. Or Nikki Haley. Or any of the other strong conservative women out there. They are like our forebears who pulled the conestoga wagons over the mountains in search of a better life for themselves and their families. Some were lost along the way, but the ones that made it built a better place for themselves and their families. They weren’t inclined to be overcome by the “vapors”. The Debbie Downers and the Sandra Flukes are waiting for someone else to make a better life for them so everything that goes wrong for them is someone else’s fault. If we’re going to build a better place for women to live, work, and love, I know who I trust to get it done. Regardless of their politics.

  7. Lulu says:

    I think this may be viewed as a RNC win. If they thought there was any kind of outrage to be exploited, these speakers would have been covered endlessly . Obviously and pointedly ignoring them is really a compliment and an acknowledgement that they can’t go there. And using sycophant black men such as Juan Williams to go after a quite innocuous Ann Romney is also telling. Is he the only one willing to go there? If that is the best they can do she and Mittens won that one too. Next up is Republican ad carpet bombing non-stop of which Obama will not be able to compete due to poor budget planning and limp fundraising. And Artur Davis had a very good pre-speech interview with Blitzer and came off extremely well on CNN. He has a future as a sane moderate Republican.

    • leslie says:

      Yes. And they were seemingly angry about things that MSNBC didn’t even air. This morning on “Morning Joe” they talked about speeches like Ann Romney’s that they didn’t show last night. That must’ve been eye opening to MSNBC viewers. or not.

      I know viewers of that station who wouldn’t realize those speeches hadn’t been shown because they weren’t watching the GOP convention last night anyway.

  9. amazing—-I wrote my own Mia Love piece on my own blog highlighting her videos. Thought it couldn’t hurt to have as many thinga as possible out there about her. And two people from my distribution list asked to be taken off. I’ve written incendiary things before without that reaction. But——Mia Love? You were right myiq (as usual)——they’re really threatened by this!! Go figure….

  10. DandyTiger says:

    Artur’s speech was fantastic and powerful too. What MSNBC did is vile and pathetic, and just sad. They are an embarrassment not just to journalism, but to humanity in general. They’ve been escalating the batshit crazy about race and the “foreign” thing for weeks to the point where they’re screaming at people about it and not listening. Matthews is shaking and spitting and screaming at anyone he can. And then they pull this obviously racist shit of not covering certain people, and this misogynist shit about Republican women.

    What is the point of their existence exactly? Obviously they are there to do harm and otherwise cause trouble. How much and in what form? Race wars when Obama loses so they can cover them and get ratings? What lengths will they go?

    Could Clint Eastwood be the Mystery Speaker ? That would be fun 😀

    OT. I just left an unplanned rant on John W Smart’s blog. I’m copying here because this attitude I am seeing a lot of on the left is getting on my nerves.


    I’m sorry, when did “family” become a hate word? When did someone saying that their marriage is not “storybook” but “real” become an attack on non-traditional marriage?
    Seriously, some people are acting like everything.is.about.them.
    If we’ve come to the point where straight people are not allowed to say nice things about their spouses or romantic partners without being attacked as haters, then no conversation is possible.
    When Mitt Romney went to inner-city Philly to talk to about education and charter schools he talked about two parents being important. The press immediately called that anti-gay marraige. But how many black inner city kids have the problem that their two gay parents can’t get married – no, the overwhelming reality in Philly’s school problems is that teen moms are raising fatherless kids. There’s only so much that schools can do to help kids when their family – (yeah, I said that word so obviously I’m an anti-gay bigot) – when their family life sucks up the wazoo. But the media and the left would prefer to ignore that problem because it’s generates more campaign donations to pretend that the problem is anti-gay bigotry.
    For the record I have always supported gay marriage but this attitude is crap. The country does not revolve around gay issues.

    • DandyTiger says:

      There you go again, trying to have a real conversation about the real issues.

    • threewickets says:

      The New Dems are running on an implicitly anti-family anti-children platform. It’s the strangest thing in elections I’ve seen in my life.

    • yttik says:

      I know! I don’t understand the hatred towards family, either. Gay marriage is about family. Single people come from families. We’re human, our lives revolve around the whole concept of family.

    • PiperMN says:

      Luv your rant and happy that you posted it here and there. My thinking is that there are people (dems and former dems) who don’t want to vote for Obama but are looking to find reasons to not vote for Republicans.

      So I ask this question – If O is re-elected what will he do in second term without any reelection constraints or working with Congress as he likes to rule by executive fiat?

      • votermom says:

        I think you are absolutely right – looking for an excuse not to eat their veggies (vote GOP).

        And the idea of Obama unfettered by any future election frankly scares me. I predict massive federal looting by him & his cronies. He’d be cashing out like crazy.

    • leslie says:

      Well Done, votermom!

      Have another coffee on me. 😉

    • elliesmom says:

      There are many people who have one issue that colors all of their thinking. When they encounter someone who agrees with them, if that other person isn’t as invested in it as they are, they fight with them over it. They don’t seem to get it that pushing at someone harder is likely to turn him or her away from their cause. Gay marriage and abortion are two issues that I have become more conservative over because the proponents for them have oversold their case to a point where I now see the rational on both sides. I don’t want to get any less supportive of same sex marriage or a woman’s right to have an abortion than I am right now so I have stopped engaging with zealots. I have very good friends who could marry if they literally moved a mile. If being married was truly the most important thing to them, they’d put a For Sale sign on their house and do it. But their real issue is having their lifestyle accepted as mainstream. Which won’t happen through bludgeoning people. Or hating on people who enjoy having a traditional life style.

  13. DandyTiger says:

    So funny to hear the Ron Paul supporters who walked out complain about their disenfranchisement. The RNC disenfranchised about 10% of their delegates. Poor babies. They should try the Democratic party if they want to learn about disenfranchisement.

  14. votermom says:

    This cracked me up.

    Too bad Bill is being held hostage though
