Lt. Gov. James “Duke” Aiona, the Republican candidate for governor, has not made his opposition to civil unions a significant part of his campaign.

But, behind the scenes, many of Aiona’s conservative supporters have used civil unions to motivate voters. On Friday, two big rig trucks circling the state Capitol had activists with both Aiona-Finnegan and “No HB444″ signs.

This video was posted on YouTube warning of the consequences if former U.S. Rep. Neil Abercrombie, the Democrat, is elected governor. Abercrombie has said he would sign the civil-unions bill into law.

    HATERS! BULLIES! why don’t these people move to Uganda or Iran! They would love it there…. I just do not understand why this is such an issue. This is all because of religion and their teachings of hate and intolerance. I say TAX the churches!

  2. Teddy Freddy:

    Is this the best they’ve got? Aiona is going to lose. Reminds me of the Arkansas school board.

  3. Eric Ryan:

    I’m no fan of Aiona or Finnegan, Jason. But maybe, instead of conservatives moving away from Hawaii, you and the other “tolerants” could move to San Francisco.

    Whoa, the gays are taking over…I’m shaking in my boots. Seriously? This video is pathetic. I’m so happy to be a member of the tolerant party where bigotry and intolerance are a thing of the (long) past. Shame on whomever made this video.

  5. OldDiver:

    Eric, Jesus was a tolerant. Remember that.

    Those that believe that the gay community has been discriminated against should take a long and hard look at the reality. In the Ole’ South, blacks were lynched and killed without hesitation. In WWII, internment camps were set up for US citizens who were the wrong nationality.

    What I don’t see is a great deal of facts to back the claim of discrimination and loss of civil rights by gays. The quest for civil unions and, ultimately marriage rights, by gays are just a ploy to get monetary benefits and not an issue of true discrimination, in my view.

  7. Djou neighbor:

    Wow, MF, you need to review the definitions of “civil rights” and “discrimination” before you post nonsense again.

  8. Eric Ryan:

    Interesting and convenient revisionist point of view, OldDiver. As a Jesus expert, perhaps you can enlighten us by recalling the name of the street in Sodom and Gomorrah that Jesus’ apartment was located. Also, how many gay weddings did Jesus officiate? While you’re at it, can you recall the name of that best-selling book which makes it clear “a man shalt not lie with another man as with a woman”? Note to OldDiver: One can still be tolerant and reasonable without having to ‘tolerate’ absolutely everything.

    The maker of this video MUST take it down immediately, because it uses a HUGE AMOUNT of photos and images that he has no copyright to use. YouTube will delete his account and ban his e-mail. In addition, the people whose likenesses he uses will SUE HIM!

  10. Hannah Miyamoto:

    I’ve gone through that video carefully. George Takei, Sulu on Star Trek, and his partner are at 0:08. Also, one of my friends is at 0:22. This fellow better take down all his videos, or ELSE!

  11. jaded:

    @Hannah — file a complaint with YouTube ASAP for copyright infringement.

  12. Ryan Adverderada:

    anyone else confused by the video? i get that the video is meant to scare people who are abhorred by gays and gay marriage. but all it shows are happy couples who look in love and are sharing their moment with their friends and families.
