Video clip at the link, and you should watch it if, for no other reason, to get a real appreciation of what a jackass he really is. This poor, mild-mannered CSPAN anchor didn’t deserve the crap he got from Tingles here.
Yes. Chris Matthews is sick of people making fun of him for declaring on national television that he got a “thrill up his leg” after listening to President Obama.
Fishbowl DC notes that Matthews unleashed on CSPAN’s Steve Scully, after asking about the “thrill up his leg” comment during a media panel at a convention in Boston.
“Is the thrill still there?” asked Scully.
Matthews wasn’t thrilled with the question.
“I hope that you feel satisfied that you’ve used the most obvious question that is raised by every horse’s ass right-winger I ever bump into,” Matthews responded, after defending the comment.
Matthews said that he made the comment because he has “traditional values” and loves his country. “I do have physical reactions when people are talking about my country,” he added, noting that a news anchor like Tom Brokaw wouldn’t have said it. …
Ah, I see. The tingle was just he loves his country so much, you wingnuts. He’s just a true patriot, or something.
Oh, and if you refer to him as Tingles (or to the leg “thrill” as a tingle), then you’re gay. Neener neener!
“Perhaps I shouldn’t have said so because I’ve given a lot of jackasses the chance to talk about it,” Matthews continued.
“And usually they say ‘tingle’ which says something about their orientation, but that’s alright,” he added. Later he interjected, “Not that there’s anything wrong with that, of course. I have to throw that in.”
Remember when liberals used to pretend that being gay was OK?
I dunno. Maybe Tingles is still bent on his less than flattering display of mental acumen on Jeopardy!, and that’s why he’s in such a foul mood.
Video clip here (can’t embed it). The magic comes around the 2:15 mark, when an exasperated Romney asks the reporter (who is droning on about gay marriage, in-state tuition for kids of criminal aliens, medical marijuana) if there are any “issues of significance” she’d like to discuss.
See, though, she’s just telegraphing the left’s and the MSM’s (pardon the redundancy) intention: get the ADHD public focused on shiny objects to distract them from the colossal failure of Oba-Mao’s government-controlled central planning economic policies. Sure, jobs have hemorrhaged since he took over, more people have abandoned looking for work, gas prices have more than doubled, foreclosures have spiked, and…oooo, look, gay marriage/medical dope/dog on a car roof!
California going broke paying public 1400+ employees over $200k, but at least they’re focused on addressing the REAL problems plaguing the state
You know the bailout request is coming any day now. Californiastan must figure that the feds will oblige, too. “Too big to fail”, I’m guessing.
Here’s some of the financial management (or lack thereof) contributing to the once-Golden state’s fiscal demise:
More than 1,400 state employees were paid in excess of $200,000 last year, according to compensation data made public for the first time Tuesday on Controller John Chiang‘s website.
One prison doctor collected $777,423 in 2010 and a dentist took home $599,403, according to the website. The president of the state’s stem cell research agency received $482,234.
The database lists state positions by title and allows users to sort by department, salary range and total wages.
Chiang, a Democrat who has received millions in campaign contributions from state employee unions, did not include workers’ names even though that information is public and has been provided upon request for years.
But credit the state legislature for addressing this issue head on. Nah, I’m just effing with you:
A bill to require California public schools to teach the historical accomplishments of gay men and lesbians passed the state Legislature on Tuesday in what supporters call a first for the nation.
Governor Jerry Brown, a Democrat, has not said publicly whether he supports the bill, which he has 12 days to sign or veto once it reaches his desk later this month. If he takes no action, the measure would become law automatically. …
California already requires public schools to teach the contributions made to society by women and by racial and ethnic groups that were historically discriminated against, such as blacks, Latinos and Native Americans.
Supporters of the latest bill said it would simply include gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgender individuals in that existing requirement, making it part of the curriculum in history and other social studies classes.
“We’re going broke, sinking into insolvency. Quick, let’s pass some gay-friendly legislation to deflect attention from our impending bankruptcy! Because at least when we’re belly up, our gay friends will still think we’re fabulous!”
Check this out:
President Obama has decided that the Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional and has asked his Justice Department to stop defending it in court, the administration announced today.
“The President believes that DOMA is unconstitutional. They are no longer going to be defending the cases in the 1st and 2nd circuits,” a person briefed on the decision said.
This is what disturbs me greatly about this situation…
The administration has, for two years, defended DOMA in court as being constitutional. Now, all of a sudden, B.O. has belatedly come to the conclusion that it is not constitutional. Regardless of which side of the issue you fall on, isn’t there something unsettling about the government taking a position of defense, and then unprompted by any court orders or subsequent legislation, the government comes to a total about-face and says “OK, we’ve been saying all along that it’s constitutional, but now, we’re going to say it’s not…we’ve been wrong all along”?
Exit question: Dare we to hope the administration will pull the same about-face on the constitutionality (or lack thereof) of ObamaCare?
Kolakowski began her [sic] transition in 1989, and faced discrimination. Initially, she [sic] was not allowed to take the Bar Exam, and was told that she [sic] was not of sound mind.
Yeah, voluntary genital mutilation tends to bring up questions of mental capacity. Normal America is kind of funny that way.
Actually, the people at the fishwrap who wrote the story are “not of sound mind” in that the fishwrap keeps referring to the man with feminine pronouns ”she” and “her”. Look, dude was born with a twig and berries, so that doesn’t earn someone a brand spankin’ new gender pronoun, m’kay?
If you’re going to be gay, fine. No hate from me. But please, don’t shred your nads and expect me to call you a female. I mean, if we’re going to go that route, then I expect you to call me a Bengal tiger because I paint myself with black stripes and
would really really like demand that you officially recognize me as an authentic Bengal tiger.
Upon exiting the most recent debate with Barney Frank, located at WGBH studios in Boston, MA, Republican Congressional candidate, Sean Bielat, gets heckled by a Barney Frank “supporter” while talking to the media. While watching this video, we realized that we recognized this “supporter”. We received confirmation from two eyewitnesses that the mysterious cameraman was none other than Barney Frank’s pot-growing boyfriend, James Ready.
Crist: You know how I flip-flopped on support of ObamaCare? I was just getting warmed up on flip-flops!
I know the tourists here in FL don flip-flops in the summer heat, but our citrus-skinned Oompa Loompa governor is showing the tourists how we do things in the Sunshine State! Next topic for Crist’s flip-flop? A constitutional amendment banning gay marriage. Details:
Florida Gov. Charlie Crist appeared to backtrack from statements he made regarding same-sex marriage during a CNN interview Sunday, saying in a statement that he does not support a Constitutional ban on the practice.
The comments appear at odds with what the Florida Senate candidate told CNN’s Ed Henry on State of the Union, during which he expressed continued support for a ban on same-sex marriage.
“I feel the same way, yes, because I feel that marriage is a sacred institution, if you will. But I do believe in tolerance. I’m a live and let live kind of guy, and while I feel that way about marriage, I think if partners want to have the opportunity to live together, I don’t have a problem with that,” said Crist when asked about his stance against same-sex marriage when he ran for governor four years ago.
“When it comes to marriage, I think it is a sacred institution. I believe it is between a man and woman, but partners living together, I don’t have a problem with,” added Crist, the former Republican-turned-Independent who is leading the three-way Senate race in most recent polls (um, no…he’s not. – CL) and is counting on significant support from Democratic and independent voters to eek out a victory.
In a statement released later Sunday, Crist said he in fact is against a Constitutional ban on same sex marriage and was instead only offering his support for a state ban on the practice.
“I was not discussing an amendment to the U.S. Constitution banning same-sex marriage, which I do not support, but rather reaffirming my position regarding Florida’s constitutional ban that I articulated while running for governor,” he said in the statement.
Read the transcript. Ed Henry asks him twice about supporting a constitutional ban on gay marriage. Charlie’s lying through his teeth (again), and trying to have it both ways (again). Whether you support a constitutional ban on gay marriage or not, fine…but I suspect each of you probably feel strong enough about it one way or the other that you’re not going to shift directions multiple times!
But wait…there’s more! From NRO:
Miami Herald: “Gov. Charlie Crist is not joining his rivals for the U.S. Senate, Republican Marco Rubio and Democrat Kendrick Meek, this Sunday on MSNBC’s ‘Meet the Press.’”
“The governor has long planned Labor Day events, when he’ll be out talking to working families,’’ said Crist spokesman Danny Kanner.
Of course. Those working families require the entire day; clearly, they wouldn’t understand if Crist took one half hour out of his morning to appear, via satellite if necessary, with the other candidates.
Oh, by the way, there’s nothing currently listed for Sunday on the Crist campaign web site events page.
Ed remembers that Chuck blasted Rubio early in the GOP primary for not debating him at the time. Apparently, now it’s fine to duck debates. Don’t like Charlie’s positions? Simply wait a few minutes, and you’re bound to find him espousing a position you like…though no guarantees as to how long that position of his will last, m’kay?
Seriously, this dude’s a friggin’ joke.
Exit question: With Gallup showing a 10% GOP edge in the generic ballot question, an all-time high in Gallup’s history, you think maybe Crist is second-guessing picking this year of all years to bolt the party he’s crapped on for so many years?
Aw, heck, who knows? But Fox News has a handy little run-down on his shifting positions over the years. Read it and chuckle…or weep. Whatevs.
Exit question: If he opposes gay marriage (which he said he does, multiple times), and he supported the right of California to decide for themselves (which they did: 53% voted to adopt B.O.’s position and ban gay marriage), and he applauds the gay judge that just overturned CA’s Prop 8 because Prop 8 was “divisive and discriminatory”…then doesn’t that logically mean that President Kick#ss applauds the judge for overturning the electorate’s decision to implement his own ”divisive and discriminatory” position? “Hey, I sure am glad that judge didn’t uphold my own personal divisive and discriminatory beliefs! It sure would have sucked if my bigoted position were law.”
Police chased reporters away from the White House and closed Lafayette Park today in response to a gay rights protest in which several service members in full uniform handcuffed themselves to the White House gate to protest “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.”
Well, maybe it was just a security precaution. Oh, wait…
People who have covered the White House for years tell me that’s an extremely unusual thing to do in an area that regularly features protests.
In fairness to the White House, this was done by the police. But were the cops asked to do this? Considering the light-skinned…er, I mean “thin-skinned” Chicago thug machine running the show right now, it isn’t far-fetched to draw the conclusion, now is it?
New White House slogan: Transparency is for suckas!
Kevin Jennings, Chairman Zero’s “safe schools czar”, says he was inspired by a cretin named Harry Hay. Hay was deeply involved in the gay pedophile group NAMBLA (North American Man-Boy Love Association). Full details of Hay and Jennings’ undying admiration of him are here.
When B.O. ran for prez last year, he said we should elect him based on his “judgment”. He didn’t say “good judgment”, though, and it’s a good thing…his judgment thus far has been utterly atrocious at just about every turn.
Isn’t “French” and “gay” redundant? I mean, “Not that there’s anything wrong with that!” Excerpt:
A French gay soccer team says its members were victims of homophobia when a team of Muslim players refused to play a match against them.
The Paris Foot Gay team says Tuesday it received an e-mail from the Creteil Bebel club canceling a match scheduled for last Sunday.
“Because of the principles of our team, which is a team of devout Muslims, we can’t play against you,” the e-mail said, according to Paris Foot Gay. The e-mail received Saturday said, “Our convictions are much more important than a simple football match.”
Exit question #1: Is there a designated “straight” soccer team?
Exit question #2: Since when was sexual preference a descriptor of a soccer team?
If you want to know why you can’t take the queer lobby seriously, look no further than this:
Barack Obama’s choice of a prominent evangelical minister to deliver the invocation at his inauguration is a conciliatory gesture toward social conservatives who opposed him in November, but it is drawing fierce challenges from a gay rights movement that – in the wake of a gay marriage ban in California – is looking for a fight.
Let’s see: Warren is against gay marriage…but so is Obama. Hey, I know: get mad at a preacher more so than the president! A tad bit irrational on the part of the drama queens, no?
Why, how can that be? Details from the L.A. Times:
Well, Christoffersen was a manager at El Coyote, the Beverly Boulevard landmark restaurant that’s always had throngs of customers waiting to get inside. Many of them were gay, and Christoffersen, a devout Mormon, donated $100 in support of Proposition 8, the successful November ballot initiative that banned gay marriage.
She never advertised her politics or religion in the restaurant, but last month her donation showed up on lists of “for” and “against” donors. And El Coyote became a target.
A boycott was organized on the Internet, with activists trashing El Coyote on restaurant review sites. Then came throngs of protesters, some of them shouting “shame on you” at customers. The police arrived in riot gear one night to quell the angry mob.
The mob left, but so did the customers
Here’s the side effect of the intolerant queers:
Sections of the restaurant have been closed, a manager told me Friday during a very quiet lunch hour. Some of the 89 employees, many of them gay, have had their hours cut, and layoffs are looming. And Christoffersen, who has taken a voluntary leave of absence, is wondering whether she’ll ever again be able to work at the restaurant, which opened in 1931 (at 1st and La Brea) and is owned by her 92-year-old mother.
Nicely done, pervs! You destroyed the lives of a faithful Mormon couple, sure, but your hate resulted in some of your fellow “alternative lifestyle citizens” losing their jobs. I’m sure they’ll be happy to thank you for killing their livelihood. Just “collateral damage” in your jihad, no?
I sat on the patio with Wayne and two other El Coyote managers — Arnoldo Archila and Bill Schoeppner — who happen to be gay.
“We always joked around with Margie,” said Schoeppner, who’s been on the job 26 years. “I’m a Democrat and voted for Obama; she probably voted for McCain — so what? If she were a bigot or a homophobe, you wouldn’t have had all these gay people” working at the restaurant or eating at it.
“You can express yourself as a citizen,” said Archila. “Not everyone has to believe the same things.”
Like hell they don’t! Disagree at your own peril.
The queers get all kinds of moronic ideas, but this one probably takes the hot fudge cake. From JWF:
…Just the latest in the five-week temper tantrum by the angry, militant gays.
Some same-sex marriage supporters are urging people to “call in gay” Wednesday to show how much the country relies on gays and lesbians, but others question whether it’s wise to encourage skipping work given the nation’s economic distress.
Organizers of “Day Without a Gay” — scheduled to coincide with International Human Rights Day and modeled after similar work stoppages by Latino immigrants — also are encouraging people to perform volunteer work and refrain from spending money.
Sean Hetherington, a West Hollywood comedian and personal trainer, dreamed up the idea with his boyfriend, Aaron Hartzler, after reading online that a few angry gay-rights activists were calling for a daylong strike to protest California voters’ passage last month of Proposition 8, which reversed this year’s state Supreme Court decision allowing gay marriage.
It isn’t clear who a comedian would call in gay to, but let’s humor them. …
“Hello, boss? Yeah, I don’t think I can come into work today. I mean, I felt fine when I hit the hay last night. But I woke up wearing a pink feather boa and leather #ssless chaps while singing Village People songs with a jar of Vaseline beside my pink lamp. That, plus my gerbil’s missing. So I think I’m gonna call in ‘gay’ today, if it’s all the same to you. I should be less gay tomorrow, though. See you then…toodles!” (Two snaps and a circle…)
Nothing says “we’re just like everyone else” quite like attacking churches, religious people, and normal Americans. From FNC:
In the nearly four weeks since Election Day, gay activists and thousands of their supporters have rallied outside Mormon temples around the country, protesting the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints’ support for California’s Proposition 8, the ballot initiative to make same-sex marriage illegal in the Golden State.
There have been calls to boycott the annual Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah; some activists have called for a boycott of the entire state of Utah. Protesters have defaced some church buildings, and in Arapaho County, Colo., the Sheriff’s Office is investigating a possible hate crime — the torching of the Book of Mormon on a church’s doorstep.
Even the state of California itself has announced that it is investigating the church’s involvement in Proposition 8, which was approved by a vote of 52 percent to 48 percent and, barring a Supreme Court overturn, will ban gay marriage in the state.
There have been no other reports of backlash against other groups that supported Prop 8, notably African-Americans and other churches and religious denominations that turned out in heavy numbers to push through the ban.
Exit polls after the Nov. 4 vote showed that 70 percent of black voters and more than half of Latino voters voted yes on Prop 8. About two-thirds of self-identified Christians supported the ban, and married voters and parents also showed strong support. The Knights of Columbus, the Catholic Church and evangelical groups in the state also urged for a ban on gay marriage.
So why is the Mormon Church the only target?
It’s because of the money, says Evan Wolfe, executive director of Freedom to Marry, a New York-based group that supports same-sex marriage.
“The Mormon Church hierarchy led the way on this attack on gay families and the California constitution,” Wolfe said. “They provided more than half of the funding. They provided the ground troops and were a major political force in a way that no other group was. …”
Let’s cut to the chase and call it like it is: these drama queens are nothing more than lily-livered cowards. I mean, this right here says it all:
Lorri Jean, CEO of the L.A. Gay and Lesbian Center, wrote on the organization’s Web site that she doesn’t blame African-Americans or minority groups for the passage of Prop. 8.
Why not “blame them”? Why would you not blame the acutal people who voted on the matter? Why attack a religious organization (Mormons) that has little influence in a gi-normous leftist state like CA? If you really believe that Mormons drive policy decisions in Californiastan, I’ve got some prime beachfront property in Oklahoma I’d like to sell you.
Virtually all groups of people who voted “No” on Prop 8 would fight back (many with force) against the queer lobby’s heavy-handed tactics. Mormons won’t. These sissies know that, so they throw their limp-wristed temper tantrums with impunity. Sad and pathetic. May God have mercy on their depraved souls.
Ah, yes…they “only want to be treated like everyone else”, right? Details here. Even the moonbatosphere is starting to think (which is a first for them) that “You know something? This kind of behavior may cause our side to look kinda bad, no?”
Pray for God’s children who are being assaulted by these depraved and lost souls in San Fran-freakshow. Pray for said depraved and lost souls, too.
McCain criticizes Frank for his contribution to the financial mess, and Frank whips out (OK, bad choice of words!)…yep…the “gay card”!
Frank yesterday dismissed McCain’s words as “an appeal to prejudice” that he said reminded him of past Republican efforts to raise voter concerns about the prospect of congressmen Charles Rangel and John Conyers, who are black, becoming committee chairs.
“I’m flattered by this,” said Frank, who is gay. “But I don’t think I’m the single most important member of the House after Nancy Pelosi. There are also a lot of straight white men who are committee chairmen.”
McCain’s chief speechwriter, Mark Salter, shook his head when asked to respond. “We’re bringing him up for his quotes,” said Salter. “We’re prejudiced against wasteful spenders and tax hikers.”
Is it possible that we’re a little torqued that Barney Frank was bouncing Fannie Mae orbs off his chin while going to bat for Fannie/Freddie during his day job? Maybe we’re a bit bent that he and his ilk have destroyed our economy, especially the mortgage sector? Perhaps we detest his socialist “let’s tax the rich more and gut the Defense Dept. budget” words of wisdom?
Nah. We’re OK with all that trivial stuff. No, our hang-up is that he likes man-meat up his squeakhole. Darn it, he’s got us figured out!
Excellent column by Andrew Breitbart! The setup is a description of Palin Derangement Syndrome:
Palin Derangement Syndrome, a more irrational variant of the Bush contagion, doesn’t require sufferers to know anything about the subject of their hatred. Anonymous, unsourced rumors fuel the fire (book banning, speaking in tongues, creationism, etc.). Lovely family photos hacked from a personal e-mail account displayed on commercial Web sites push more buttons. Asterisks from Mrs. Palin’s biographical sketch – “moose hunter,” “small-town mayor,” “wife of champion snow machine racer” – cause excessive sweating and irregular heartbeats. She even fired a guy who Tased a 10-year-old. (Oh wait, she didn’t.)
What will happen when they find out she shops at Wal-Mart?
And now, mix in some unhinged Hollyweird muffmunchers:
Sandra Bernhard celebrated the 20th anniversary of her career-ending one-woman show, “Without You I’m Nothing,” warning that if Mrs. Palin were to go to Manhattan she’d be “gang-raped by [her] big black brothers.” The lipstick-on-a-pig lesbian also called Mrs. Palin a “bitch” and an “Uncle Woman.”
Joyless niche comedian Margaret Cho blogged, “She is evil,” fantasized about having hateful sex with Mrs. Palin and attacked a multitude of her supporters: “If you were truly Christians, you would let gays get married, and send them #$%ng presents from Bed Bath and Beyond!”
Everything-aholic Lindsay Lohan (“Mean Girls”) joined the Sapphic pile-on by issuing a joint diatribe with her putative partner, disc jockey Samantha Ronson: “Is our country so divided that the Republicans’ best hope is a narrow-minded, media-obsessed homophobe?”
Not since Rosie O’Donnell & Co. manhandled Elizabeth Hasselbeck weekdays on “The View” have liberals been so gleeful to watch a bitter lesbian tear down a confident and beautiful conservative Republican woman. Unresolved high school lust and angst at well-adjusted cheerleaders and popular prom queens should be left for medical professionals, not for midmorning television gabfests.
Heh. Anywho, the gay marriage thingy:
Yet none of these gilded-ghetto living haters point out that their savior, Mr. Obama, stands against gay marriage, too. Is that change Melissa Etheridge can believe in?
Like President Clinton, who supported regressive anti-gay-rights legislation such as “don’t ask, don’t tell” and the Defense of Marriage Act, Mr. Obama gets a massive pass from the activist gay left and their stenographers in the mainstream media.
The never-reported political reality is that both Mr. Clinton and Mr. Obama understand that key components of the Democratic Party – the black and Hispanic blocs – hold views that Brad Pitt would deem “homophobic.”
For these minority groups, and for many other religious Democrats, gay marriage is a nonstarter.
Yet liberal celebrities and activist journalists never hurl epithets at these coddled groups no matter how retrograde their ideas. President Bush correctly pegged this phenomenon as “the soft bigotry of lowered expectations.” Political correctness, the rigging of politics using different rules for different groups, and buttressed by the media, ensures that Democrats always have the upper hand.
Hypocrisy? Get outta here!
Clumsy on her lesbian training wheels (awesome line! -Ed.), Miss Lohan and Miss Cho, Miss Bernhard and Miss O’Donnell, are granted immunity for their outrageous rhetoric because they are party girls – Democrats through and through – and creatures of the media. And because of this protection racket, none will be forced to attend sensitivity training for crossing the line last week against Mrs. Palin.
It’s also why few will know that the Alaska governor vetoed legislation that would have prevented gays from getting marriagelike benefits. It’s also why the media made Republicans Mark Foley and Larry Craig the butts (no pun intended? – Ed.) of jokes that would be considered homophobic if hurled at liberal Democrats.
If not for double standards, the left would have no standards at all.
Dude…this is so disturbing. Boy George has put out a pro-Obama music video. Does this @$$clown really think he’s helping The One?
My favorite of the comments there:
Wow … to quote Eric Cartman:
“One time, I saw two guys kissing in a park … and I thought THAT was the gayest thing I’ve ever seen, but now this.”
Reason #4,253,345 to not vote for Obama.
I have a great deal of sympathy for these parents, as I would for any parent who loses a child. It’s a form of grief that I pray I will never experience. But I think it’s clear that their anger is misdirected here. From Californiastan:
The family of a gay teenager who was fatally shot in class blames the school district for allowing their son to wear makeup and feminine clothing to school — factors the family claims led to the death.The parents and brother of 15-year-old Larry King of Oxnard filed a personal injury claim against the Hueneme school district seeking unspecified damages for not enforcing the dress code.King, an eighth-grader at E.O. Green Junior High School, was shot in February. Classmate Brandon McInerney pleaded not guilty to the shooting last week. He was charged as an adult and also faces a charge of a committing a hate crime.The family’s claim, filed last week in Ventura County Superior Court, said administrators and teachers failed to enforce the school’s dress code when King wore feminine clothing and makeup to school.His parents, Dawn and Gregory King, said faculty members knew their son had “unique vulnerabilities” and was subject to abuse because of his sexual orientation. …
I hate to pile on the parents, but I have to call it like I see it: if you don’t want your kid wearing a dress and lipstick to school, then for the love of God, do not let your kid wear them to school! Heck, that goes for any form of clothing or makeup!
Besides, let’s assume for a moment that the school would have implemented and enforced a dress code that said boys must (perish the thought) dress like boys! The ACLU and various gay rights groups would have been all over that school like Barney Frank on a Chippendales table dance. They would have screamed “discrimination”, and sued the school. The school wouldn’t have been able to win, one way or the other.
To me, this is not a referendum on gayness. This is a clear cut case of personal responsibility, and the family wants to sue because they abdicated their responsibility. It’s not right.
Political correctness run amok in Eurotrashland. From the UK:
Police officers in an area with a high crime rate are being taken off the beat for an awareness course on sex changes.
The half-day training class is meant to help them deal with a colleague who is beginning a new life as a woman.
The ruling, which applies to 344 police and 166 civilian staff, has been deemed ‘political correctness gone mad’ by senior officers.
It was announced in a letter from Humberside Police’s former Chief Superintendent Kevin Sharp to all staff within the force’s A division.
This covers Grimsby and the surrounding area in North-East Lincolnshire — a region which last year had 41.5 crimes per 1,000 residents, compared with a national average of 28.
In his letter, Mr Sharp informed staff that the sex-change officer, a 42-year-old married PC now called Lauren, had been suffering from gender identity dysphoria. This left him feeling like a woman trapped in a man’s body.
Mr Sharp wrote: ‘As from today, Lauren starts her new life and over the next few weeks you will receive awareness training during which you will be able to read a personal letter from Lauren. …
Obviously, hurting some tranny’s feelings is a much worse crime than robberies, rapes, assaults, and murders.
What consenting adults do behind closed doors is none of my (or anyone else’s) business. But what gets taught to our school kids is most definitely my (and everyone else’s) business. From (where else?) Californiastan, written by (where else?) San Fransicko’s own Democrat Assemblyman, Mark Leno:
A conservative group is warning parents about a bill under consideration in the California state Senate that requires public schools to have an official “Gay Day.”
AB 2567 requires Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger to proclaim May 22 of each year as Harvey Milk Day, putting it on par with President’s Day and Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
The bill designates May 22 “as having special significance in public school and educational institutions and encourages those entities to conduct suitable commemorative exercises on that date.” …
No word on whether the kids will have “suitable” festivities such as The Vaseline Olympics, Village People Karaoke, or a group reading and re-enactment of Heather Has Two Mommies.
One thing that annoys me about many (not most, but many) gay people is their childish accusations that if you oppose any aspect of the gay agenda (be it marriage, openly serving in the military, adoption of children, subsidized #ssless chaps and Village People posters, etc.), that your motivation is your own latent homosexuality. “Tee-hee…you’re really gay, neener neener!”
In this instance, though, I have to throw them a bone. OK, bad choice of words! How about “They may have a point”? Yeah, that’s more like it! Anywho, from Weasel Zippers:
Only in the Muslim would homosexual rape be the punishment for homosexuality…..
Kamal was just 16 when gunmen snatched him off the streets of Baghdad, stuffed him in the trunk of a car and whisked him away to a house. But the real terror was about to begin.
The men realized he was gay, Kamal said, when he took his shirt off and they saw his chest was shaved. (That tripped their gaydar? Dude, every wrestler in the WWE, plus every one of the male American Gladiators, would apparently qualify as homos with this low threshold of proof! – Ed.)
“They told me to take off my clothes to rape me or they would kill me immediately. This moment was the worst moment in my life,” he told CNN, weeping as he spoke of the 2005 ordeal.
I was watching them taking off their clothes, preparing to rape me. I did not know what to do, so I started shouting loudly, ‘Please do not do that! I will ask my family to give you whatever you want.’”
A U.N. report on human rights in Iraq reinforces the accusations of violence. Although gays are supposed to be protected by law in Iraq, it says, they face extreme brutality.
“Armed Islamic groups and militias have been known to be particularly hostile toward homosexuals, frequently and openly engaging in violent campaigns against them,” the report said, adding that homosexuals have been murdered.
Islamic weirdbeards punish gay Iraqi by performing an act of gay rape. After all, nothing says “I can’t stand queers!” quite like…uh, sodomizing one.
Methinks Ibrahaim and Abdul were repressed young jihadis.
While I’m on my “gay-bashing” (to use a leftist term) kick today, how about this ludicrous story from Mount Virus?
The warped, whiny, politically correct victim culture has reached a new milestone of insanity:
A homosexual man who has a blog on Sen. Barack Obama’s campaign website is suing two major Christian publishers for violating his constitutional rights (which “rights”? – Ed.) and causing emotional pain, because the Bible versions they publish refer to homosexuality as a sin.
Bradley LaShawn Fowler, 39, of Canton, Mich., is seeking $60 million from Zondervan and another $10 million from Thomas Nelson Publishing in lawsuits filed in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan, the Grand Rapids Press reported.
I’m sure if he goes judge-shopping long enough, Mr. Fowler the Barack Obama blogger may even find one who agrees with him that scholarly translations of sacred texts should be obliterated if they cause offense. News flash: The Holy Scriptures and the Christ they tell us about are an offense and a stumbling block to people everywhere determined to live their own way – including Mr. Fowler’s hubris to think that he has unveiled a biblical interpretation that has eluded scholars for centuries. …
The dude blogs on the Obamessiah’s campaign website. Wait, lemme guess: “This isn’t the hypersensitive atheist nutbar queer I knew!”
Exit question: according to this flit boy’s logic, shouldn’t God be a defendant? Yeah, good luck with that.
Considering the British government routinely grabs its ankles for the worshipers of “The Religion of Perpetual Outrage”, I imagine they’ll fold like a French soldier on this matter, too. From Double Plus Undead:
From the “You Can’t Make This Stuff Up” department:
Bristol City Council wants to prune bushes and remove cover from an area known as the Downs to improve the landscape and encourage rare wildlife.
But its own gay rights group has opposed the move, claiming that cutting back the bushes was “discriminating” to homosexual men who used the area for late night outdoor sex known as dogging.
Work on the beauty spot has been temporarily delayed while talks with gay rights groups take place to try and break the deadlock.
According to the article, yes, screwing in the bushes is illegal, but they’re having this ridiculous debate anyway. I mean, it’s not like there aren’t any hotels in the Bristol area. I’m sure they’d be happy to have these “gentlemen” as paying guests, but yeah, cutting back overgrown bushes where people congregate to have illegal public sex is discrimination. I’d say “Get a room,” if I wasn’t afraid of a Hate Crime lawsuit.
Oh, come on, Englandistan! I mean, just where are a couple of limpwrists supposed to ride the Hershey Highway…indoors? That’s just crazy talk!
The poison that festers in these fools’ minds is toxic to America’s soul. I’ve said numerous times that political correctness is lethal to America, and by God (insert politically correct deity here), these morons are proving me right. Here’s the narrative:
In a New York Times editorial responding to the Florida decision, Dan Savage, an author, syndicated columnist, and adoptive father, wrote, “The real choice for children waiting to be adopted in Florida and elsewhere isn’t between gay and straight parents, but between parents and no parents.”
By prohibiting gay and lesbian people from adopting, there are unquestionably fewer potential adoptive homes for children. “If people are going to hold a narrow opinion of who can adopt,” [Human Rights Campaign official Lisa] Bennett says, “they are sentencing some children to a life without a loving home.”
Minority children in foster care are being ill-served by a federal law that plays down race and culture in adoptions, a report released on Tuesday said.
The report, based on an examination of the law’s impact over a decade, said that minority children adopted into white households face special challenges and that white parents need preparation and training for what might lie ahead. (Because apparently, kids with gay parents will not need to be prepared for “what might lie ahead”, right? – Ed.)
To summarize: “Sentencing some children to a life without a loving home” is only possible if both parents are queer, but not possible if the parents are of a different ethnicity. Got it?
Just me mentioning this makes me politically incorrect…a badge of honor I wear proudly!
Poor MSNBC. They must be scraping the bottom of the barrel on a slow news weekend. Apparently, the former first daughter was hopping from one gay bar to the next with PA Dem Gov. Rendell for a photo-op. A lesbian copped a feel of Chels’ derriere, without incident. If someone can tell me why this is newsworthy, I’m all ears.
And in case someone wants to know “If it’s not newsworthy, then why are you talking about it, Mr. Liberalism?”, I have three replies: (1) Please…call me “Crush”, since Mr. Liberalism is my father (his first name is “Ihave morethantwofunctioningbraincellssoIcouldneversubscribeto”…see why we call him “Mr. Liberalism”?); (2) I am notorious for taking the MSM to task for making non-stories into stories, so I’m just being me; and (3) dude, the story mentions lesbians. ‘Nuff said.
Memo to MSM: Get. A. Life.
And a memo to the Philly gay community: Having a gay bar named Woody’s should not evoke any howls of feigned outrage when people like me make fun of you. What, was The Manhole aready trademarked?
Until I see some dude decked out in a pair of leather #ssless chaps with a pink feather boa screaming “Cher rocks, m’kay?” through his lipstick-caked piehole before self-detonating in a mall, I’m gonna have to disagree with this wingnut on that contention. From FNC:
A YouTube audio clip of a state lawmaker’s screed against homosexuality, which she called a bigger threat than terrorism, has outraged gay activists and brought death threats rolling in.
“The homosexual agenda is destroying this nation, OK, it’s just a fact,” Rep. Sally Kern said recently to a gathering of fellow Republicans outside the Capitol.
“Studies show no society that has totally embraced homosexuality has lasted, you know, more than a few decades. So it’s the death knell in this country.
“I honestly think it’s the biggest threat that our nation has, even more so than terrorism or Islam, which I think is a big threat,” she said. …
While I don’t disagree with her on the insidiousness at times of the gay agenda (such as attempting to force kindergartners to hear Heather Has Two Mommies and King and King), comparing rump-humping sodomites to camel-humping jihadists is way beyond the pale. Two dudes behind closed doors plotting what to do to each other with Crisco and some jumper cables poses no threat to me or my countrymen. Two weirdbeards behind closed doors plotting what to do to the NYC subway system with some C-4 or cell phone detonators does pose a threat. Quite frankly, that was a moronic comparison.
Martina Navratilova has regained Czech nationality more than 30 years after fleeing a Communist regime she now compares favourably to that of her adopted country America under President George Bush.
The nine-time Wimbledon champion and one of the world’s greatest ever tennis players, Ms Navratilova was born in Prague. She fled in 1975 at the height of the Cold War after being denied the right to compete in professional tennis in the US, where most major tournaments were then played and to where she later moved.
After angering the Communist authorities and living in America for six years, she became a US citizen.
Yesterday, however, she told a press conference in Tokyo that she now has her home citizenship back. “I lost it at the time I defected. I got it back on 9 January,” she said.
The widely respected star had previously spoken of her disdain of the government of her adopted nation. “The thing is that we elected Bush,” she told the Czech newspaper Lidove Noviny. “That is worse. Against that, nobody chose a Communist government in Czechoslovakia.” …
I don’t get it! I mean, I thought if anyone loved bush, it was the strict vagitarian Martina Navratilova! Oh, well, don’t let the door hit you on the schlong on the way out of the country, Martina.
