In the whole of the great state of Oklahoma there is only one paper worth reading, the Oklahoma Gazette, a free publication that is distributed weekly. In general I would characterize the publication as liberal leaning especially for around here but all view points are represented most notably in the editorials and letters to the editor. Case in point, here's a published letter to the editor from the June 30th edition:
"Sick of it
I have read your so-called magazine for the very last time. The June 23 issue was filled with filth supporting the gay agenda. Regarding the gay pride weekend, who cares?
Your garbage magazine has become more and more liberal as the years have gone by. You ran an entire article on a fag who plays the piano with AIDS (Hailey R. Branson, 'The man at the organ'). Was that supposed to make us feel sorry for him? Well, it did not. He is getting what he deserves. AIDS is a gay disease designed by God to wipe out fags. You, Mr. Editor, are probably a fag yourself.
And the idiot who wrote the article (Chicken-Fried News, 'There’s something about Sharia') defending Sharia law and Muslims should be fired, you moron. Do you remember 9/11? Yes, we despise Muslims, and rightfully so. They want to kill us and dominate the world with their religion. We do not want them in this country, much less this state.
I may keep a couple copies of the Gay-zette around in case I run out of toilet paper, because that is all it is good for.
So, you liberal dipshits keep up the poor work. When you realize Oklahoma is a conservative state, maybe the popularity of the Gay-zette will go up. You will never get a penny of my advertising money.
I'm not really surprised that an Oklahoman would have this kind of view, I am a little surprised the Gazette would publish such a vitriolic letter. I'm sure they'll get a lot feedback before next week's edition.
I think my friend, who is active in the Air Force, said it best: she said she should write a letter back explaining to J. Simms that she's proud to protect his freedom and right to say stupid things! Me, I would just suggest that J. Simms blow me. For those reading who live elsewhere, wouldn't you just love to live here or visit Oklahoma?
