CANDIDATES BEWARE OF “SAVE” DADE!

::: OFFICIAL FDL STATEMENT :::

“SAVE” DADE’S ENDORSEMENT:
INAPPROPRIATE AND UNACCEPTABLE
UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE

{Unanimously Adopted in Miami, Florida on March 2, 2012}

AS OUR STATE’S largest minority-led Democratic voters’ civil rights and social justice advocacy organization, the Florida Democratic League (FDL) is a battle-proven champion in the struggle for equality and respect for the dignity and rights of all Floridians regardless of race, color, sex, disability or creed.

The League, its directors, members and friends, are deeply troubled that any candidate would naively seek the endorsement of groups working against equality, human rights, civil liberties, constitutional freedoms, and the common good of all Floridians. We refer to groups such as the KKK, “SAVE” Dade, Equality Florida, Aryan Nations, among others, pushing ideological agendas that attack our cherished values, undermine the Rule of Law, and threaten, with their hate, bigotry and intolerance, the very fabric of our civil society.

“SAVE” Dade, in particular, is an extremist ideological hate group publicly on record in support of overthrowing Florida’s Constitution, undermining fundamental voter rights, and pushing an extremist ideological agenda that seeks to force all of us to accept as normal and sane, universally-rejected, sexual behavioral choices, fetishes, preferences, “identities” and “expressions” in violation of our Constitutionally-protected equal protection and due process rights.

<> HOW DO WE KNOW THIS?

Among its many egregious and unethical political practices, between 2002 and 2008, “SAVE” Dade attacked important democratic initiatives, voter referendums, and citizen petitions as well as openly and unabashedly endorsed the criminal violation of the fundamental right of citizens to democratically petition their government.

In 2010, the group attacked the basic rights of abandoned and orphaned children to adoption by families capable of providing them with healthy, sane, and biologically correct examples of sexual behavior, identity and expression. In 2014, “SAVE” Dade attacked Florida’s constitutional respect for the time-tested, voter-approved, historical definition of the institution of Marriage.

“SAVE” Dade has offended fair-minded citizens for exercising their constitutional and civil rights to frankly disagree with the hate group’s extremist ideology. Furthermore, it has supported the violation of the dignity, equality, and constitutional rights of all Floridians.

Given the numerous factors that influence the successful outcome of a political campaign, responsible candidates will never accept a hate group’s endorsement, even when it may appear as politically expedient, as this is inappropriate and unacceptable under any circumstance.

<> CANDIDATES BEWARE! DON’T BE FOOLED.

Candidates should be very weary of “SAVE” Dade, for while the group lures candidates with promises of endorsement and support, the group is not actually interested in helping any candidate, but rather in getting candidates to endorse and publicly support “SAVE” Dade’s extremist, ideological agenda! This is the outfit’s real objective.

In the end, many candidates have gone down in tragic defeat by naively getting in bed with “SAVE” Dade; while many successful ones would have won with even more votes had they wisely declined “SAVE” Dade’s so-called “endorsement.”

Consequently, respectfully declining “SAVE” Dade’s endorsement demonstrates a candidate’s honesty, integrity, commitment to the common good, and respect for the most cherished values, principles and ideals of fair-minded, tolerant Miami-Dade countians.
