Michele Bachmann, batshit crazy Congresswoman, on what to do if Hillary runs for President:
"Two things that need to be done: Remind people [Hillary Clinton] is seeking to become commander in chief … how she has operated in the past with these types of responsibilities. She was in charge during the Benghazi debacle. If a person reads the Senate Intelligence [Committee] report and the House Foreign Affairs [Committee] report … it is damning for Hillary Clinton. Effectively she would be Obama’s third and fourth term in office. I think there was a cachet about having an African-American president because of guilt. People don’t hold guilt for a woman. I don’t think there is a pent-up desire."
So, Michele says we aren’t ready for a female President, and yet she continually touts herself as Presidential material.
I don’t know whether to laugh or cry.
Oh hell, laugh, it’s Michele Crazy Eyes Bachmann after all!
Bristol Palin, on those kids these days:
“’Lazy hands make a man poor, but diligent hands bring wealth.” Proverbs 10:4.’ … I came across this Scripture and wanted to pass it along. I love it because it reminds me of my parents and the work ethic they instilled in all of us kids. If you want something, you go out and work for it. No one owes you anything, and I’m embarrassed to be in a generation that doesn’t have that mindset. Honest, hard work, is the only way to do it right. Don’t rely on anyone to provide for you. The world doesn’t owe you anything!"
This from a barely educated high school graduate whose only claim to fame is riding her wackadoo mother’s failed attempts at politics to a role on a TV dance competition.
Seriously, Blister, take a seat. You’re more done than your mother.
Joaquim Chissano, Mozambique’s former President, on anti-homosexuality laws in Africa:
“We can no longer afford to discriminate against people on the basis of age, sex, ethnicity, migrant status, sexual orientation and gender identity, or any other basis – we need to unleash the full potential of everyone. As an African who has been around a long time, I understand the resistance to these ideas. But I can also step back and see that the larger course of human history, especially of the past century or so, is one of expanding human rights and freedoms. African leaders should be at the helm of this, and not hold back. Not at this critical moment.”
One rational voice in a sea of homophobic lunatics.
Greg Ellis, former Dallas Cowboys defensive end, on Michael Sam joining the NFL:
"If he pats somebody on the butt — I hope ESPN don’t get mad and never have me back — but if he pats somebody on the butt, how is that to be received? If he does that how is that to be received? If he said, ‘Come on baby’? I called guys baby all the time on the football field, but when you have taken a stand and went and go public and say that, ‘I am gay,’ how is that going to be received? I’ve seen guys, I had guys on the Dallas Cowboys football team — I won’t mention names — who did not want you to pat them on their butt. So God forbid if you pat one of those guys on the butt it’s going to be a major problem.”
Wait, so Greg Ellis pats guys on the ass and calls them ‘baby’ and he’s worried about Michael Sam.
Get a mirror, Greg and take a good long look.
Greg Ellis, again, going on and on about Michael Sam and locker-rooms and showers:
“People who’ve never been in an NFL shower room, not just locker room, it’s a open room. We don’t have private curtains. It’s just an open-form shower, so everybody sees each in the nude. Well if you’re looking at men as if you’re looking at women or vice versa, how are those guys to receive that? I don’t know. I don’t know how they will receive that. But I do know it would be a situation where I would go to the coach and try to work something out to say, ‘Obviously this is going to be a problem. What can we do? The kid can help us play, can help us win football games. We need him on the team. But this situation right here, we need to do something.’”
Sounds as though Greg liked to touch guy’s asses, call them ‘baby’ and then look at them in the shower.
Seriously, does he really think Michael Sam, or any gay player in or out of the closet, has spent their lives working and training and practicing football to make it in the NFL just to have sex?
Take a seat next to Blister Palin, Greg, because the Dumbass Bus is coming to get you, too.
Desmond Tutu, on Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni and the “kill the gays" bill:
"When President Museveni and I spoke last month, he gave his word that he would not let the anti-homosexuality bill become law in Uganda. I was therefore very disheartened to hear last week that President Museveni was reconsidering his position....We must be entirely clear about this: the history of people is littered with attempts to legislate against love or marriage across class, caste, and race. But there is no scientific basis or genetic rationale for love. There is only the grace of God. There is no scientific justification for prejudice and discrimination, ever. And nor is there any moral justification. Nazi Germany and apartheid South Africa, among others, attest to these facts."
It’s a shame Museveni doesn’t have the thought processing capabilities of someone like Tutu.
It’s plain and simple; it’s love and why should it bother anyone?
George Takei, the now openly gay Sulu, writing to Arizona in the wake of the state’s proposed Gay Discrimination law:
"Dear Arizona, Congratulations. You are now the first state actually to pass a bill permitting businesses — even those open to the public — to refuse to provide service to LGBT people based on an individual’s 'sincerely held religious belief.' This 'turn away the gay' bill enshrines discrimination into the law. Your taxi drivers can refuse to carry us. Your hotels can refuse to house us. And your restaurants can refuse to serve us … If your Governor Jan Brewer signs this repugnant bill into law, make no mistake. We will not come. We will not spend. And we will urge everyone we know–from large corporations to small families on vacation–to boycott. Because you don’t deserve our dollars. Not one red cent."
I hope folks, gay and gay friendly, listen to this and turn away from Arizona.
You don’t think I’m worthy of being served by your business? I don’t think your business is worthy of me.
Paula Deen knows just how Michael Sam feels:
“I feel like ‘embattled’ or ‘disgraced’ will always follow my name. It’s like that black football player who recently came out. He said, ‘I just want to be known as a football player. I don’t want to be known as a gay football player.’ I know exactly what he’s saying. I’m fighting to get my name back.”
Notice how she can't be bothered to remember his name?
And how does this disgraced cook know how a black gay athlete feels about coming out and how does it compare to a racist losing money because she's a racist.
Seriously, Paula, I asked you once to stop talking.
Apparently you weren't listening.
