Molotov Mitchell is running for NC State Senate. He's pretending to be a moderate. He's removed or hidden a lot of his awful videos from YouTube and such.





Anti-gay filmmaker Jason 'Molotov' Mitchell challenges for NC Senate seat





Posted by Colin Campbell on February 27, 2014





A conservative filmmaker who’s questioned President Barack Obama’s U.S. citizenship and voiced support for Ugandan anti-homosexuality laws filed Thursday to run against N.C. Sen. Josh Stein of Raleigh.





Republican Jason Mitchell will appear on ballots under his nickname, Molotov Mitchell, in N.C. Senate District 16, which includes parts of West Raleigh, Cary and Morrisville. Stein, a Democrat, has held the seat for three terms and is also the Senate minority whip.





Mitchell made news nationally in 2010 when he posted a video in support of a Ugandan anti-homosexuality law that would have imposed the death penalty on violators. The video is now listed as “private” on YouTube, but a Huffington Post report included this quote from the film: “Like the great Dr. (Martin Luther) King told us, ‘the moral arm of the universe is long but it bends towards justice.’ Ugandans, stay on the right side of history.”





Mitchell has also reportedly made videos arguing that Obama’s birth certificate is fake, and he’s called Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor “an anti-American racist,” adding that he “wouldn’t be surprised if this broad lived in a commune with Bill Ayers,” according to Huffington Post.





Most of the videos cited in 2010 news reports have been pulled from YouTube or changed to the “private” setting. On his campaign Facebook page, Mitchell offers a more mainstream Republican message.more:
