I Didn't Say It ...

Kevin Swanson, the Kill The Gays Pastor, ranting about the Best picture Oscar winner… seriously:

“The Academy Award ceremonies this week provided the best film and best director Oscar to a violation of the worst possible sexual sin mentioned in Leviticus chapter 18. Maybe I’ll just leave it there, I don’t want to defile the ears of my listeners. But this was another milestone in the moral degradation of Hollywood and the nation itself.  What it did was it presented the ultimate sexual depravity—and, again, I don’t want anyone thinking what this is—but the ultimate sexual depravity as presented in Leviticus 18 is presented in this movie as a tender and romantic and a beautiful thing. Even saying that is just disgusting. God says, ‘Be careful, I might just bring this to you if you violate my law to the level of egregiousness contained in the moral commands in Leviticus 18.’ It’s these abominable practices that are being committed in this nation today and glorified at the highest echelons of the nation.”

Cuz a woman fell in love with a sea creature and Kevin’s brain goes right to bestiality. Of course, this is the same man who blamed female gymnast’s outfit for Larry Nassar sexually abusing them.
Seth Meyers, on the allegations that Stormy Daniels make have _____’s dick pic:

“So we are looking at the very real possibility that Donald _____ sent Stormy Daniels a dick pic. Can you even imagine? Oh, you can, and that’s why you’re making those awful noises. It would look like a flaming-hot Cheeto sitting on a Brillo pad.”

Now how am I supposed to scrub my brain of that mage?
Elizabeth Porter, Florida State Republican, because, of course, Representative, downplaying the recent activism by the students at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School:

“We’ve been told that we need to listen to the children and do what the children ask, are there any children on this floor? Are there any children making laws? Do we allow the children to tell us that we should pass a law that says ’no homework’? Or you finish high school at the age of 12 just because they want it so? No, the adults make the laws because we have the age, we has [sic] the wisdom, and we have the experience.”

Oh, you stupid, stupid woman. These ‘children’ will be voting as early as next year and I hope to everything hopeful they come gunning for your stupid, illiterate ass.
Shepard Smith, Fox New host, on _____ caving to the NRA:

“There is broad-based support for raising the gun age limit. There is a limit of 21 on handguns and they’re talking about doing it for everyone else. The President said to the kids at Parkland, ‘I’ll go strong on this, I’ll work on this age thing.’ He came up to the general public and said to the Congress, ‘The NRA has a lot of pressure on you, but not on me so much.’ And then he met with the NRA. So what happened this time is what happens every time. It’s what happened after Newtown, it’s what happened after Florida, after Pulse nightclub, it’s what happened after Las Vegas. It’s what happened when Luke Woodham, way back in the day before there was a Columbine, when Luke Woodham went shooting up the place in Pearl, Mississippi, same thing. It happens every time. The NRA gets to them, and that’s that. You can like that or not like it, but that’s the fact of what happened. That’s exactly what happened.”

I do so enjoy seeing even Fox news pundits calling out _____’s hypocrisy and the terrorism of the NRA and cowardice of the GOP.
Joe Scarborough, on Morning Joe, on _____’s Hate Speech:

“The booing is getting stronger by the day whenever he goes out there and whips up like it’s a Mussolini rally. Yes, that’s what I said. There is certainly nothing American about what Donald _____ did in Pennsylvania when he tries to turn an entire audience, whether it’s against Katy Tur or Chuck Todd and this weekend he went after Maggie Haberman. When you’re in rallies like that and you whip your supporters into a frenzy, there are real life consequences to that. Threats follow, often death threats.”

Words matter.even those that spew forth from an Illegitimate President.
Alan Cumming, whose new show Instinct premieres this week, talks about playing openly gay former CIA operative and making network TV history:

“It’s the first time on a network drama that there’s been a gay character in the leading role, [but] it’s like the fourth or fifth thing of the characteristics of this person is that he’s gay and married and a happy solid marriage. And actually, what I think is really amazing is that most of the time, especially on network TV when someone is gay, when there’s a gay character it’s like, ‘they’re gay gay gay’ and it’s all about their sexuality and usually in a negative way. But the fact that this has a character whose gayness is way down the list of things that are most important about him is a positive thing and also the fact that when you do see his same-sex life it’s in a really positive way and that’s two things I don’t think are represented enough in this country.”

I said this last week about "gay skater Adam Rippon" being a skater who is gay; and I saw it again, over at The Gay Almanac, in a post where writer Edward Albee said he was a writer who was gay and not a gay writer.
Don't limit us to being one thing.
Ellen DeGeneres, opening up about one of the most tragic losses in her life:

“My girlfriend was killed in a car accident when I was like 20 years old. And I wasn’t doing comedy, I think I was probably waitressing someplace at the time. I was living with her when she was killed. I couldn’t afford to live where we were living together and so I moved into this tiny little basement apartment … I was sleeping on a mattress on a floor and … I just thought it would be amazing if we could just pick up the phone and call up God and ask questions and get an answer. It just unfolded, I just wrote the entire thing and when I finished, I read it and I thought, ‘Oh my God, that’s hilarious. I’m going to do this on Johnny Carson and I’m going to be the first woman in the history of the show be asked to sit down.’”

Fast forward to 1986, Ellen appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, and became the first ever female comedian to be invited to sit down on Johnny’s couch after a stand-up routine based on that Phone Call to God.

I guess that only an "adult" would equate not wanting to be shot in class to not wanting homework. SHEESH!!!! Sorry for the language.

Kevin Swanson... I'm surprised he didn't bring up the god part, and doesn't his wife violate Leviticus 18 every time she has sex with him? Oh, wait, maybe they don't have sex.

Some very admirable and funny people here today (and, no, I'm definitely not talking about Porter and Swanson. Scary when I agree with someone who works for Fox News. I so admire Ellen Degeneres.
