Oh Michele. The only bullying you've experienced at the hands of the LGBT community is when Marcus refuses to go to "the icky place".
 
2014-03-17 02:44:15 PM  
Help, we're being oppressed!

I vote we stick something in Rupert's pooper to see whether he really likes gay sex or not.
 
2014-03-17 03:32:20 PM  
More for me.

Piss off, Rupert
 
2014-03-17 03:52:45 PM  
Well, I wasn't going to go out for a pint tonight...Now, I feel I have to.

MaudlinMutantMollusk: Piss off, Rupert


This.

I know what I'll be drinking tonight : )

Good job Guinness!

Hold on. Didn't the entire GOP just get done telling us that we don't NEED anti-discrimination laws, because those who discriminate against gays will feel retribution from the free market and go out of business? And isn't this exactly what we're seeing happen here? And now they're lamenting it?

"That doesn't make any sense" doesn't really have any effect on them.

How is that gay?

Of course. It's the glory of the sacred free market when it furthers their agenda, it's the worst form of tyranny and bullying when it furthers an agenda they disagree with.

Yep.  It's so hypocritical it often seems like satire.

They think this:
Laws Banning Discrimination Against Homosexuals = Bad and unnecessary because the free market will dictate which businesses succeed or fail.
Laws Banning Discrimination Against any other Minority Group = Bad and unnecessary (see above.)
Laws Banning Discrimination Against Conservative Christians = Good, because this particular group is getting bullied by (insert minority here.)  Without these laws, people can't practice their sincerely-held beliefs, blah blah blah.

Kome: worst form of tyranny and bullying when it furthers an agenda they disagree with.


Kinda like how I hear some saying that "Benghazi was the worst terror attack in our nation's history" and it happened on Obama's watch, so he's an evil murderer blah blah blah.

Apparently it doesn't matter that 9/11 happened on W's watch.  Maybe it wasn't a terrorist attack in their opinions.  I'd respectfully argue that it was much worse than anything that happened in Libya.

Turnabout is fair play, although this is yet another one of those signs of the shifted tide that can only be ignored in the present and will be embarrassing looking back from the future.

I would protest by boycotting FOX News and the Wall Street Journal, but I do that already.
 
2014-03-17 04:32:22 PM  
Crap...I was trying not to drink today but apparently I need to go and buy some Guinness.
 
2014-03-17 04:32:44 PM  
Who the fark is Rupert Murdoch?  Also, why is he still alive?
 
2014-03-17 04:32:53 PM  
Hey Rupert, thanks for that.  Now I'm gonna buy a six-pack of Guinness as a way of saying "FARK YOU!"

2014-03-17 04:34:27 PM  
Time to support these companies.

"Sordid, why did you bring home three six-packs of beer?"
"Supporting these fine companies, of course!"
"You already have some of this beer in the fridge."
"Well, yes, but that was purchased last week."

Rupert owns a lot of stock in Guinness, so by asking for a boycott because they stand up for the LGBT community, it will urge LGBT supporters to fly a middle finger in Rupert's face and buy lots o' Guinness and thus increase the value of his holdings.

Good job... ish?

Rwa2play: Hey Rupert, thanks for that.  Now I'm gonna buy a six-pack of Guinness as a way of saying "FARK YOU!"

I have a feeling he has a massive amount of stock in Guinness...

In related news, everyone continues their boycott of Rupert Murdoch.
 
2014-03-17 04:35:47 PM  
Sorry, Rupert, even if I did stand with you on the wrong side of history, Guinness is the only beer I've never gotten a headache from. That makes it liquid gold in my book.
 
2014-03-17 04:36:05 PM  
To quote William from Mallrats.

"You dumb bastard!"
 
2014-03-17 04:36:18 PM  
I hope Murdoch never drinks another Guinness, Heineken or Sameul Adams again.  He can suck on Schlitz.

Okay, better idea:  "Rupert, if you're calling on a boycott of Guinness, why don't you start by divesting yourself in their stock?"

Practice what you preach...and all that jazz.
 
2014-03-17 04:37:49 PM  
Like the Irish are going to listen to anyone, much less an Australian, who says, "Stop drinking!"

No, Behghazi was bad because Obama didn't go to the embassy with a bullhorn and a hard hat, or something.

He said it wasn't.

Who cares?  NYC's parade isn't even the best one.  Guiness, you're more than welcome to come sponsor the Savannah parade.
 
2014-03-17 04:40:33 PM  
For every Guinness Murdoch followers do not drink, I shall drink two. So there.

/doing my part
//for the greater good
 
2014-03-17 04:40:42 PM  
Meh. I don't drink that crap anyway.
You'll have to pry the rocky mountain goodness, Coors Light, out of my cold dead hands though.
 
2014-03-17 04:41:44 PM  
Oh look. Another one of these stories again....

What's getting tiresome in my mind is some people are "allowed" to have a public opinion and some people aren't...

If I'm a Christian and my opinion is that being gay doesn't make sense, I'm a bigot...

If I'm a LGBT and my opinion is there is no God, it's just their opinion...

I'm not saying I get bullied, nor will I ever say that, but let's all make sure we realize its a two way street and regardless of if you like it or not, the parade committee can do whatever they darn well please, regardless of a few beer makers don't like it.
 
2014-03-17 04:41:57 PM  

URAPNIS: goodness, Coors Light


You've got comedy chops, I'll give you that.

Because evil lives a long time.

You know who will join a Fox news boycott against anything? Seniors about to croak anyhow. Nothing to see here. Move along.

papatex: the parade committee can do whatever they darn well please, regardless of a few beer makers don't like it.


Correct, as can the beer makers, regardless of a few pants-wetting conservative types.
 
2014-03-17 04:43:57 PM  
I read that the parade is not banning gays, they just don't want people carrying sex signs. That sounds reasonable.

URAPNIS: Meh. I don't drink that crap anyway.

how bout we leave it in your hand to keep in cold until we are ready to drink it?

I could use a helpful picture of what a sex sign looks like.
 
2014-03-17 04:44:59 PM  
Gay people like to drink. A lot. And the Irish would buy beer from the devil. Sounds like the right call fro Guinness.
