jxb465: HotWingConspiracy: These people really are going to start shooting at us soon.

I'm baffled as to why they haven't yet.


It would conflict with their narrative that There Is No Such Thing As A Violent Conservative (TINSTAAVC).
 
2013-10-18 02:26:44 PM  
There is no such thing as a "tea-party".  Just as there is no difference between democrats and republicans.


There are only progessives and regressives.  The "tea-party" is of the later grouping.

Car_Ramrod:  I was just at a lesbian wedding this summer, and you cannot tell me there was any less love that day than in any of the other weddings I've been to. It's nothing less than insanity.


I have a gay aunt, and my wife has a gay uncle who has been with his partner for 3 decades.  I couldn't agree more.  At the very WORST, I can stomach someone who says "Well, I don't agree with what they're doing, but it's none of my business at all."  Seething hatred toward fellow humans is just unconscionable, unless those humans deserve it (That jackass in Cleveland who held 3 women for a decade, mass murderers, etc.)

Even if I were bothered by gays (I'm not), it is not my place to tell other people that their love is right or wrong.

When you find out let me know. I plan to sue the sun for the sunburn I got this year.


Hell, at least the Sun is an object, a physical object. In this context, homosexuality would be, I don't know, an ideological concept? It boggles the mind...

He has earned himself a pretty distinguish nickname.

FTFA:
"Yeah I think that's great," LaBarbera agreed. "I would love to see it. We always wanted to see one of the kid in high school who was counseled by the official school counselor to just be gay, then he comes down with HIV. But we never really got the client for that."

Yes.  He really said that.


Not even an option for "out of context", it's right farking there in the audio file. How are they gonna spin this shiat?
 
2013-10-18 02:35:39 PM  

MindStalker: I think he meant he wanted to see this kid sue their counselor (he's a lawyer, so he wants to see the kid as a client is what he meant, though its badly worded).


Are you in the running for the "Understatement of the Year" award, or something?  :-)

lockers: Does anyone still claim that the TEA party isn't the religious right rebranded?


I actually had an argument online a week or so ago with a twenty-something dood from Arizona who disputed my claim that the Teabaggers were just Moral Majority/Birchers in Libertarian clothing.

His response summed up basically was "Nu-uh, Cos RAND PAUL!11!".

I dropped the subject at that point.

My douchebag delegate does.

"There is no such thing as a Tea Party conservative. Tea Party is a movement that crosses lines. It crosses independents, Democrats, Republicans. And it's a movement itself. As a conservative, we stand for lower government. We stand for keeping more of your taxes in your own pocket and making sure that we keep the best prosperous place for families and businesses to grow as we did in Virginia."

/will not be voting for him

Wait... it he equating "ex-gays" to black republicans?  So they are admitted that black republicans are brainwashed or in denial?

Chariset: Absolutely.  The world needs a list of every single person moronic enough to admit to having been 'harmed' by homosexuality.

I hope they list their grievances too.


The girl I lost my virginity to left me for a chick. I work through the pain by forcing myself to watch lesbian porn. It's like therapy, but with more semen.

The anti-homosexual crowd really wants a name that sounds like the campest, most limp-wrist-ed stereotype of a gay guy lisping out 'ass'?

Tea Party must have been infiltrated by Dem plants.

All this Baggin's activity is very effective at drawing attention away from any real issues the Dems may be facing.

It's a bit like watching a slow-mo trainwreck, where the carriages just keep piling up and piling up.

The former Baptist pastor opined that "homosexuality much more likely leads to AIDS than smoking leads to cancer. And yet the entire nation has rejected smoking, billions of dollars are put into a trust fund to help cancer victims and the tobacco industry was held accountable for that."

So is this jackhole insinuating that I can catch AIDS from secondhand homosexuality?

Because that's what it sounds like to me.
 
2013-10-18 03:14:29 PM  
So... who would they actually be suing? I'm pretty sure that Homosexuals aren't a corporation or other legal entity.

He could probably find someone who was not well instructed about precautions of heterosexual sex and got an STD!

miss diminutive: A tea party leader and former Baptist pastor - who believes that AIDS is God's judgement against LGBT people - this week proposed filing a class action lawsuit against "homosexuality".

This is just weapons grade stupid.

First off, if God did send AIDS as a punishment against homosexuals, why aren't heterosexuals immune? If he did sent it to punish gays, then why do lesbians have significantly fewer cases of HIV? How does one prosecute a sexual orientation? If this man is actually a leader of the Tea Party, is it possible said party is populated by dimwitted, ignorant buffoons who have no grasp on reality and hide behind a veneer of fiscal reform to hide their bigoted and hateful core?


God seems to really, really hate heterosexual Africans.

A guy in my Veterans' Club at college has been HIV positive since something like 1988.  He was one of the first patients on AZT, and seems pretty healthy.  That's some pretty weak-shiat God's wrath.

I'd be willing to bet this guy thought about dudes both times he masturbated into a woman; Which he likely refers to as "sex".
