Josh Hawley Hysterically Breaks Silence: “I’m Not Gonna Cower, I’m Not Gonna Run”

BITCH PLEASE! – Josh Hawley Breaks His Silence: “I’m Not Gonna Cower, I’m Not Gonna Run”

After being silent on Twitter all day after the January 6th. Committee publicly spanked Republican Senator Josh Hee-Hawley for running from the same domestic terrorists he helped fire-up on January 6th. Hawley tried to save face in a speech last night. declaring he would “never run from a fight”.

Via Mediate: Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) was defiant Friday during a speech in Tampa, Florida, when he unironically declared he would never “run” from a fight. The comments were made fewer than one calendar day after the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol attack showed the country video of him quite literally running from danger.Hawley, dressed in jeans and a T-shirt, was addressing a student summit for Turning Point USA, when he made the statement sorely lacking in self-awareness. “Hey, listen I know what I’m talking about because I had them do it to me. I objected on Jan. 6 last year to the state of Pennsylvania. And I just want to say to all of those liberals out there and the liberal media, just in case you haven’t gotten the message yet, I do not regret it. And I am not backing down, I’m not gonna apologize, I’m not gonna cower, I’m not gonna run from you. I’m not gonna bend the knee.

Linda Ronstadt Trashes Mike Pompeo At Kennedy Center Honors Dinner

Linda Ronstadt Trashes Mike Pompeo At Kennedy Center Honors Dinner

Linda Ronstadt, Sally Field and the disco-funk band Earth Wind and Fire awaited their turn in the spotlight Sunday night as part of the latest group of recipients of the Kennedy Center Honors for lifetime achievements in the arts.

According to Sam Greisman, a movie writer and the youngest son of Sally Field, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was having a major sad at the State Department dinner for Kennedy Center honorees.

The White House said Friday that neither Donald Trump nor Melania Trump would attend because they planned to host a Christmas party for members of the Secret Service and their families. Mike Pompeo attended instead and at one point asked asked aloud when he would be “loved”. That’s when Linda Ronstadt replied to his question and she pulled no punches.

Brava Diva!

We are all waiting breathlessly for the video.

Dan Savage DESTROYS Gay Trump Voter Who Wonders Why He Can't Get Laid

Dan Savage DESTROYS Gay Trump Voter Who Wonders Why He Can’t Get Laid

Over at The Stranger this week Dan Savage schooled, shredded and annihilated a whiny gay Trump supporter who wonders why no one in the gay community will touch his dick with a 10 foot pole. 

I am a 28-year-old gay white male living in Houston, Texas. In the six years since I came out and became sexually active, I have used various apps off and on, for dating and for sex. I like to think I have done my best to be respectful of the people I have slept with. Recently, I have noticed a handful of profiles that explicitly state “I do not sleep with republicans” or “Trump supporters swipe left.”

As you might have guessed by now, these labels apply to me.

I am asking you to set aside the (I imagine) revulsion you feel toward me and think clinically of the choices presented to the object of these proscriptions. So far, I have always blocked, left swiped, or ignored messages from these profiles. This is the most charitable course, and is self-respecting.

However, it is also an ethical requirement? There is nothing that betrays my political affiliation on my profile. If I wanted to sleep with one of these people, I could. I could subsequently reveal my voting history or could vanish without my partner ever becoming wise of it.

I view written proscriptions against groups of people as mean spirited at best, but I think everyone has the right to their own filter (even if I view it as the moral equivalent of a Gryffindor saying “I don’t sleep with Hufflepuffs” – and yes, this is your chance to joke about Slytherin). If I sleep with someone while declining to volunteer information that would have caused them to withdraw consent, am I functionally sleeping with them without their consent? Does the interaction (however satisfying their orgasm) devolve into some sort of rape?

Curious to know if you would also reach this conclusion, how you might weigh it relative to other sexual sins and misdemeanors, and more broadly, how you think those of us on the right should treat our woke counterparts when our paths cross romantically.

 

Sorta Wondering If This Commonly Happens

Mr. Savage was not having it and let it rip.

So first let me say: Fuck you, SWITCH. Fuck you for being part of the racist, sexist problem. Fuck you for your deplorable vote in 2016.

Not quite moving on…

Voting for Donald J. Trump—being a gay Republican—doesn’t make you a “member of a group” that has historically faced “proscriptions,” discrimination, and state-sanctioned violence. It doesn’t make you a “member of a group” in the sense that being gay or person of color or Muslim or an immigrant or trans makes you a “member of a group.” You aren’t a member of a protected class. You aren’t being discriminated against on Grindr, Scruff, Recon, et al, for who you are, SWITCH, but for what you’ve done.

{snip}

So, SWITCH. Honey, baby, darling. The question you should be asking yourself isn’t, “Why won’t some gay men sleep with me?”, but rather, “How on earth do I sleep at night?” (Alone and deservedly so, of course, if you take the question literally. But I don’t mean it literally.)

And for the record, SWITCH: even if Trump weren’t attacking gay men and other queers—and even it hadn’t been abundantly clear before the election that, if elected, Donald Trump would attack gay men and other queers (THE ASSHOLE PICKED MIKE FUCKING PENCE AS HIS RUNNING MATE)—you still shouldn’t have voted him. Even if he weren’t an anti-LGBT bigot, SWITCH, he’s a racist bigot and an anti-Muslim bigot and a sexual predator. You should’ve cared enough about women and people of color and immigrants—many of them queers—to vote against Alternative Universe Pro-LGBT/Anti-Everyone Else Donald J. Trump.

Here in our universe, Trump is attacking queers and it makes sense that queers don’t want to sleep with queers who helped make those attacks possible and continue to support Trump despite them. Someone who puts “no fats, no femmes, no Asians, no blacks” on your profile? That gay guy is mean spirited and that shit is unnecessary. (There are kinder ways to express your precious “preferences,” guys.) Someone who puts “no Trump supporters” on his profile? That gay guy doesn’t want to be alone in a room with someone who approves of gay bashing and who can blame him.

There is MORE so I suggest you head over to Dan’s column and check it out.  It’s deeeeeelicious.

 

Beast and the Beauty: Eric Trump “Totally Disgusted” That Gus Kentworthy Read Ivanka To Filth.

Eric Trump appeared on Fox & Friends Monday, where he was asked about his reaction to Gus Kenworthy’s Olympic tweet stating that he was “so proud” of everyone who worked so hard to get to the Olympics, ahead of the closing ceremonies “Well…Everyone except Ivanka. Honestly, wtf is she doing here??” 

Quasi-Ericmodo Trump replied:

I think it’s disgusting.

The Olympics is a time of happiness,” he added. “We did great, we won so many gold medals. Ivanka is an unbelievable representative for this country. She is so poised, she’s so elegant. She’s a role model for so many people.”

So, to hear that, that’s not what the Olympics is about. Politics should not enter into the Olympics.”

When asked if it bothered him Eric-modo continued:

“Yeah, it does bother me, and it should bother us as a society. Can you imagine if Sasha or Malia [Obama] went over to the Olympics and somebody said that about them?” he added.

To that this humble web-journalist replies:

“We watched Sasha or Malia grow up.  We knew Sasha or Malia. Sasha or Malia was a friend of ours. Ivanka, you’re no Sasha or Malia.” 

*We’d like to apologize to Quasimodo for any discomfort that the comparison to Eric Trump in this post might have caused.

BURN!: NY State Lawmaker Proposes ‘PENCE’ Bill Banning Gay Conversion Therapy

rainbow-flag

In a brilliant “burn” Patrick Burke, a legislator in New York’s Erie County, proposed a bill this week that would ban gay conversion therapy for minors. The proposed law which would only affect Burke’s county, which includes the Buffalo-Niagara Falls metropolitan area. The law is named the Prevention of Emotional Neglect and Childhood Endangerment—or PENCE, for short.

Said Burke:

Conversion therapy is an abomination. It is clearly abuse. It’s brainwashing. It does real damage. Even calling it conversion therapy takes the edge off of what it really is.

The Vice President-elect has been a supporter of this, and he’s earned the name. People need to remember this. Mike Pence’s views are extreme. I don’t want them to become normalized. This isn’t normal—none of this is OK. We have work to do.

During his campaign for Congress in 2000, Pence’s platform stated that funds for HIV prevention and care should be redirected toward conversion therapy rather than programs that “celebrate and encourage the types of behaviors that facilitate the spreading of the HIV virus”:

“Congress should support the reauthorization of the Ryan White Care Act only after completion of an audit to ensure that federal dollars were no longer being given to organizations that celebrate and encourage the types of behaviors that facilitate the spreading of the HIV virus. Resources should be directed toward those institutions which provide assistance to those seeking to change their sexual behavior.”

Conversion therapy—”counseling” that uses psychological, spiritual or physical methods to try to change a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity—is currently banned in five states: New Jersey, California, Oregon, Illinois and Vermont, as well as in the District of Columbia.

New York governor Andrew Cuomo introduced an executive order in February that banned insurance coverage of conversion therapy as well as prohibiting the practice in all facilities falling under the jurisdiction of the New York State Office of Mental Health. Cuomo’s executive actions came after a statewide bill banning conversion therapy passed in the state assembly but failed to gain traction in the state senate.

Burke hopes if his bill passes in the Erie County Legislature, it could have a ripple effect.

“This could have ramifications throughout at least New York state,”

Video – Lisa Lampanelli Donates $44,000.00 To GMHC In Westboro Baptist Church’s Name

Bad girl comedienne Lisa Lampenelli was so stoked after hearing that the inbred mostly bastard children of whackadoodle Fred Phelps and the Westboro Baptist Church wanted to picket show last night in Topeka, Kansas,  Lampanelli for every “person” who showed up to protest from the WBC, she would donate $1,000 to the Gay Men’s Health Crisis, “the nation’s oldest HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment and care services provider”:

Said Lampenelli to TMZ:

It’s gonna be hilarious to write out the checks to the GMHC and have them send thank you notes to the WBC for their ‘generous contributions.

I’d love to see their inbred faces when they open those thank you notes! Hopefully their jaws will drop so fast that their three remaining teeth and cro-magnon foreheads will plummet to the floor.”

By the end of the night Lampanelli donated $44,000.00 to GMHC in Westboro Baptist Church’s name.  (But not before she went outside and teased them before her show just a tad first)

Anti-Gay Florida "Pastor" Terry Jones Stokes The Fire Of Right Wingnut Hate By Holding "International Burn A Koran Day," On Sept. 11, 2010 (Video)

Anti-gay religios nutcase “Pastor” Terry Jones of the Dove World Outreach Center in Gainseville, FL is no stranger to rgose of us who follow the radidly anti-gay, right wingnut, religious zealots who attack the LGBT Community using religion as a way to gather lemming followers. 

Jones and his follwers were against the election of Gainesville’s openly gay mayor, Craig Lowe, earlier this year. Lowe was the subject of an anti-gay leafleting campaign during the campaign, led bu Jones which focused on his sexuality. The leaflets asked voters to “Please help to make this town more like San Francisco, CA. Don’t let Traditional Values Activist [sic] use scare tactics against you!”  The leaflets also told voters that Lowe would support an “agenda” that included “Gays in Women’s Restrooms,” as well as “Gay Marriage,” “Gay Public Sex Education,” and “Gay Oriented Churches,” among other things and they also set uup signs reading “No Homo Mayor,” later shortening that slogan to “No Homo.”

But not content in just hating “Homos” Pastor Jones and his folowers are now going after the Muslims.  The church set up signs declaring that, “Islam is of the Devil.” When one of the church’s signs was vandalized on the evening of July 21, the church website sought to pin the act on gays the following day. “This is private property and vandalism is a crime here in America,” read the text, going on to say, “In Islam, many actions that we consider to be crimes are encouraged, condoned or sheltered under Islamic teaching and practice, though. Another reason to burn a Koran.”

Jones has come up with a plan to stand firm for righteousness: he’s calling on his followers to burn copies of the Qu’ran, the holy book of the Muslim faith on Sept. 11th no less.

The Friendly Atheist blogger Hemant Mehta called up Jones to ask what’s behind the burn. Jones tells him this is not about hate but about Christian truth — and bringing Muslims to convert. Says Jones:

We love the Moslems and hope that they would come to true salvation. What we are attacking is Islam, the religion, and Sharia law, the political system.

According to Jones, the organizers got the idea from another Facebook event, “Everybody Draw Muhammad Day” earlier this year (sigh).

Response from Florida’s Islamic community has been relatively muted so far. September 11 this year falls within the Eid al-Fitr holiday when Muslims mark the end of fasting for the holy month of Ramadan. RNS reports that local Muslims are planning to use the feast as an opportunity to share Islamic traditions and Qurans with the church members and the wider community.

“We don’t want to do anything that would be reactive,” said Ramzy Kilic, communications director of the Tampa Chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations

In the Orlando Sentinel, Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) National Communications Director Ibrahim Hooper said,

“American Muslims and other people of conscience should support positive educational efforts to prevent the spread of Islamophobia.”

He said CAIR’s research shows that anti-Muslim bias decreases when people have access to accurate information about Islam and are able to connect on a personal level with ordinary Muslims.

Terrorism in the US has not been a one-way street either and the Islamic community in Florida has been one of it’s recent targets.

On May 10, a pipe bomb exploded in the Islamic Center of Northwest Florida in Jacksonville. No worshippers were hurt, but Kilic said the planned burning of Qurans could escalate tensions in the area

What a scary fucking country we live in.
