Sen. David Vitter broke ranks with his far-right brethren and endorsed the Common Core education reforms and that has the Tea Party of Louisiana hopping mad. So mad that they cited a fake article claiming that Common Core turns kids gay from a site called Broken World News.
The Broken World News article could not be more obvious a parody:

“Some kids are a little more decisive than others,” says Raymond Johnson of Biblical Concepts Ministries, “Choosing one’s sexual orientation can be a difficult decision. I know it was for me. But the materials in Common Core are coercing students in the direction of homosexuality.”
The punchline: The “about” page for Broken World News says:
Disclaimer: If you believe any of the shit you read here you are a freaking moron.
That has now been conclusively proven.
