David Prater may be losing his mind…

It may be time to elect a new district attorney for Oklahoma County.

No, this isn't a sponsored post written by the Video Vigilante or supporters of Jerome Ersland. It's just the first thing that popped in my head after learning that our seemingly innocuous Oklahoma County DA has endorsed noted Islamophobic homophobic nutsack protector Paul Blair for State House District 41.

Remember him? He's the right-wing extremist who held a big press conference last month claiming that photos of him wearing KKK garb were photoshopped.

Here are details of Prater's endorsement via the McCarville Report:

In a Republican primary runoff for Senate District 41, Paul Blair today got a bi-partisan endorsement from Oklahoma County’s current and most recent District Attorneys. David Prater and Wes Lane announced their endorsement of Blair on Tuesday.

“Paul Blair is a friend and someone I have a great deal of respect for,” said Prater.  “In a time when people are quick to compromise the tenets of their faith for the sake of political correctness, Paul is steadfast in his faith and lives consistent with his world view.  Paul Blair’s courage, character and faithfulness impresses me.  I know that Paul is a man of his word.  I ask you to join me in supporting Paul Blair for the good of Edmond and all of Oklahoma.”

First of all, why's the District Attorney for Oklahoma County even endorsing a candidate in a state house primary election in Edmond? Is he wanting to get better concessions at the county courthouse?

Also, there's a huge difference between political correctness and blatant bigotry. For example, here are a couple of examples of political incorrectness...

"What do you do when your dishwasher breaks down? Get a new wife!"

or

"Why do little boys whine? They are practicing to be men!"

Here are some examples of bigotry:

“You look at some of the things going on in America and you would think we’ve moved into the Twilight Zone. But ultimately, all of these forces—the force of Communism, the force of the radical homosexual agenda, the secularist movement in America—they all have the same source, the same ultimate conspirator, and that is Satan.”

or

Since Oklahoma citizens already have equal justice under the law, why is the City Council of the largest city in the most conservative, God-fearing state in the Union so anxious to create a special protected class for those that participate in the homosexual lifestyle?  Will you next provide a special class of protection for adulterers?  What about those who struggle with addiction to pornography?  Why is anal intercourse the only perversion that demands to be protected as a special class of citizens?  Advancing poor public policy like this in red states is a stated goal of powerful and well-funded groups promoting the radical homosexual agenda. 

For what it's worth, the examples of bigotry come from mouth of Paul Blair.

Anyway, you kind of have to wonder (and worry) what David Prater, a registered Democrat, is doing supporting a religious zealot like Paul Blair. Is he okay? Should we hold an intervention? Is he dealing with a case of Derplahomanitis? Who knows, maybe Blair has some photoshopped images of Prater attending a KKK rally. That would explain a lot.
