Gay schoolkids vs. WHO's bully broadcaster:
These 16 Iowa GOP lawmakers just pledged to ruin
Des Moines Area Community College (DMAAC) for hosting anti-bullying Governor's LGBTQ Youth Confab

Update — WHO radio bully Jan Mickelson on Friday's show:
"I'm going to stand up to these varmits... The gays were upset because you were drawing a line at goats? ...This culture belongs to the people who built it... I want to defund every one of the institutions that have been captured by evil.

Last Thursday, the Iowa Family Leader held a press conference, including several of the 16 Iowa GOP legislators who have pledged to blackmail DMAAC by threatening to cut $25 million of state funding unless it ceases support of the Iowa Governor's Conference on LGBTQ Youth, which is organized by Iowa Safe Schools.
     Here was their statement:
     Based on our desire and commitment to be faithful stewards of our tax dollars, we cannot in good conscience vote to give taxpayer dollars to people or to groups who pervert the Bible, teach our youth to engage in dangerous behavior, and target individuals like Jan Mickelson for hatred and bullying.
     We have proof that the Des Moines Area Community College (DMACC) Diversity Commission is using tuition and taxpayer monies to sponsor the Governor’s LGBTQ Youth Conference, as a result of information obtained by the DMACC Young Americans for Freedom chapter, through a Freedom of information Act (FOIA) request.
     Therefore, we Representatives of the people of Iowa, will vote against appropriations for DMACC unless they withhold taxpayers’ dollars from the Governor’s LGBTQ Youth Conference.
 WHO's Jan Mickelson, to a highly amused Tom Latham: Can you [GOP
congressmen] just pull a busload of those nuns over and pistol whip them? Source
     The evidence that the DMACC Diversity Comission is teaching kids to "target" defenseless WHO broadcaster Jan Mickelson was a workshop description on the conference website:

The Iowa GOP has a plan to defend WHO Radio's house bully,
Jan Mickelson, from gay schoolkids being taught how to
kick back at radio homophobes: financially destroy the
school that sponsored the seminar that taught them how.
Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Right Wing?

     Learn messages and methods to fight back against propaganda from the extreme right wing, from Fox News and Rush Limbaugh to Bob Vander Plaats and Jan Mickelson. Discover resources to get the most up-to-date information available and work toward a more progressive Iowa.
     Evidently the 16 Iowa legislators below are so terrified that a workshop might teach gay kids how to defend themselves against broadcast bullies like WHO radio's Jan Mickelson, that they are willing to financially destroy a community college to stop it.
