(Huffington Post)   Tea Party speaker: "We will not be silenced by f*ggots." Clearly this is a tea-party colloquialism that somehow relates to economic issues. Perhaps he meant "Keynesian acolytes"   (huffingtonpost.com) divider line 503

These dolts have not been silenced by reality, so I doubt anything else will silence them either.

halfof33: So Fark picks up a story from Huff Po who picked up the story from Daily Kos who picked up a Tweet from a gay rights activist who says:

"I'm not sure who was speaking when we heard that. Btwn all the police kerfuffle & Tea Party people in our faces, a lot is blurry"

Sounds legit.


I agree, totally unreasonable to think that people honoring a guy who advocates the murder of gays would use such crass language.

firefly212: rynthetyn: firefly212: rynthetyn: firefly212: Bad fight to pick, TEAbaggers... gays aren't hipsters... they've been fighting their whole life, you've only been fighting (record low) taxes since we got a black president. You think your guns make you intimidating? You don't know shiat about intimidating until you've seen a pissed off drag queen.

We're here, we're queer, get used to it?

We're here, we're queer gym rats, and the cops better be on your side, because your rascal, no matter how many flags you put on it, is not all that intimidating.

These TEA party people are the Taliban, honoring those who would kill people in the name of religion, honoring tyranny... these dolts are exactly what was meant when Sinclair Lewis wrote of tyranny coming wrapped in a flag and waving a cross.

And yet they're convinced that they're the last thing standing between this country and socialism.

I mentioned upthread that my sister wound up at a tea party event on Saturday after having her main exposure to the tea party be through regular Daily Show viewing, she was flabbergasted by the level of stupidity that was being spouted. And yet those are the people whose votes they have to get if the candidate she was campaigning for hopes to get elected in their community.

Aye, you'll have the freedom to do as we please, anything else is (scary word goes here).

The thing is, though the tide has turned recently in favor of equal rights for gays, most of us are not unfamiliar with this breed of douchebag. I've been jumped before for coming out of the wrong club, such is life. If I'd been jumped for being white (oddly enough also has happened), these idiots would be the first to cry out about inequity... but when it comes to beating me up for being gay, well that's just what God wants, so it should be legal. They rationalize their big-government side with Jesus doublespeak (as though the sermon on the mount mentioned gays), but ultimately, these people want to borrow more money from Chin ...


At the event my sister was at, dependence on foreign oil was socialism, but sustainable energy was also socialism. And you should pull your kids out of the public school and homeschool them because the public schools are indoctrinating children by telling them that there's more than one kind of family and that's socialism. And they know what socialism is because they've been talking to people who lived in socialist countries and it's just the same. Because anything other than indoctrinating people exactly the way we want to indoctrinate them is socialism.

Hmm, she couldn't answer the question whether it was Lively or not.

She also didn't get any responses when she asked her pals for help.

She also did not report it contemporaneously, but mentioned it later that night.

Wait, so gays are interchangeable terms with jewish people now? Oh wait, no, I get it... you see gays control hollywood by way of stylists, and since hollywood controls the nation by threatening it with a Gigli sequel, we're totally in the drivers seat.

Yeah, don't you know, we're the most powerful people in America? The only reason we don't have equal rights is because the fun is in the takeover of the country, and since all the fun is in the chase, why would we want to do it overnight? We've got to toy with those poor unsuspecting traditional values folk, let them think they're winning, and then pounce when they least suspect it.

I suppose to be fair to the poor paranoid young republican tea partiers from my hometown, the law school I'm at is the one you go to if you want to control our state one day, while they went to the schools that you go to if you can't get into either of the top schools in the state. So I guess even while still a student, I must already be ahead of them in their minds.

I think the phrase was representative of a sentiment, they hate the gays... nobody gives a fark about the verbage, they care that this organization that is supposedly about taxes is also taking up a platform advocating mass murder. So ya, headline indicates that teaparty hates gays, is it accurate verbatim, I don't know... is it accurate in that those farkwits are calling for mass murder of gays, well, almost... the headline understates the actual level of hate they have. If anything, the headline is far too f'ing nice about what they were doing... the sentence is not nearly as relevant as the sentiment.

I was underwhelmed by the evidence supporting the claim.

More like cop having to choke said douche for being a douche is pretty obvious. The cop selected one out of the crowd and it wasn't his wig, it was his douchiness. The fact that he wanted to fight someone that was walking away after knocking his wig off and then wouldn't back down when the cop told him to, screams 'douche.' It looks pretty obvious that the cop got his attention with the physical contact and it appears the chicken-shiat douchiness stopped before he was arrested. I guess he got the hint that lawful orders to backoff are lawful orders, otherwise I'm sure he would have resisted.

/BTW, it was the LGBT fashion police that knocked his wig off, not a Tea Party dick. His clash was giving the movement a bad name. They thought he was a Tea Party mole being dressed like that.
