I Didn't Say It

Lil Nas X, addressing homophobic comments about his same-sex kiss on the BET Awards:

“y’all hate yourselves so much. y’all live your lives trying your best to appease straight ppl. y’all are uncomfortable with what i do because y’all are afraid they will be uncomfortable with you. work on yourselves, i love who i am and whatever i decide to do. get there … i still have a long way to go. i’ve never denied that. when you’re conditioned by society to hate yourself your entire life it takes a lot of unlearning. which is exactly why i do what i do.”

That was everything.

Get there.


William Barr, former Thing 45 Attorney General, on the loser’s claims of voter fraud:

“If there was evidence of fraud, I had no motive to suppress it. But my suspicion all the way along was that there was nothing there. It was all bullshit.”

And yet it took you eight months to say it publicly?

Fuck off Billy, you’ll be remembered as a traitor to this country.


Adam Kinzinger, Illinois GOP Congressman, on Thing 45’s rally:

“They really truly believe that [the twice-impeached, one-term loser] was elected president again. What you saw yesterday was a recycling of all his old talking points. It was a rally of a loser president. He’s the first president to lose re-election in decades. And I don’t know why these folks would go there and just sort of worship a loser. They did.”

And they continue to because they are sheep wo believe conspiracy theories and lies.


Mitt Romney, Utah GOP Senator,  showing support for investigating the 1/6/2021 insurrection:

“Here in the U.S., there’s a growing recognition that this is a bit like WWF [World Wrestling Federation], that it’s entertaining, but it’s not real. And I know people want to say yeah, they believe in the big lie in some cases, but I think people recognize that it’s a lot of show and—and bombast, but it’s going nowhere. The election is over. It was, it was fair. [The Big Lie is] … should never happen again and any effort to understand why it happened is in, my opinion, appropriate."

And to be fair, since the GOP wants to suggest it was antifa and BLM and the FBI, all organizations or movements they loathe, wouldn’t they want an investigation.

Cuz, you know, it looks like they’re a bunch of goose-stepping traitors.


Michael Fanone, DC Metropolitan Police Officer, injured at the January insurrection, talking about his conversation with GQP goose-stepper Kevin McCarthy:

“I asked [McCarthy] specifically for a commitment to denounce [those Big Lie comments] publicly, and he said that he would address it at a personal level with some of those members. But again, I think that as a leader of the House Republican Party, it’s important to hear those denouncements publicly.”

Fanone says that, in his mind, McCarthy didn’t agree to any of his requests.

But Kevin McCarthy puts himself, Thing 45, The Big Lie, and the GQP, over this country.


Kataluna Enriquez, healthcare administrator, fashion designer, LGBTQ advocate and out trans woman of color, on being crowned Miss Nevada USA:

“Huge thank you to everyone who supported me from day one. With pageantry, people think it is only about beauty. But it’s how you present yourself, what you advocate for, what you’ve done and the goals you have. I didn’t realize we won on the 52nd anniversary of Stonewall. I wouldn’t be able to stand without the voices of those who fought for my rights and against police brutality. My community, you are always in my heart. My win is our win. We just made history. Happy pride.”

Her win cements her spot as Nevada’s representative in the Miss USA pageant later this year, making her the first out trans woman to compete in the event’s history.

Congratulations Kataluna!

If William Thing Barr thought there was nothing to the Big Lie then why not say so back in November? Particularly as you were leaving in December, hopefully to have the time to take all those stains off your resumé.

Whoa. Kataluna is literally stunning. So beautiful!
And you know the cultist Repugs will never accept Agolf Twitler incited the January 6 insurrection. Never. They are the 'law and order' party only in name. The MAGAts are their only hope. Well, that and voter suppression and overall fuckery.

Love LilNasX. That boy has his head on right. And he takes on the haters right there in social media. Not one to shy away to call their bullshit. Love him.

Barr is trying to redeem himself. Some people will applaud his move because they have the attention span of a gnat. I will not forget. And neither will half of the country.

Adam Kinzinger does it again! I love that he gives no fucks.

And it's amazing about Kataluna Enriquez.

And how sorry is it that an injured police officer, Michael Fanone, who defends and helps keep safe the capitol for these losers, personally pleads with McCarthy about this and McCarthy still can't address it. Fuck that loser! He's is a fucking coward! I almost wish the whole police and security force would just walk out and say good luck bitches! Leave the building defenseless I say.

Some good quotations here this morning!

Adam Kinzinger’s intelligence and honesty is refreshing. Mitt Romney surprises me. Lil Nas X is an exceptional role model and leader. Michael Fanone has become a hero and representative of truth. Kataluna Enriquez Is a breathtaking, surprising, and inspiring. Amazing that this all can be going on with People like Bill Barr still encouraging lies and hate.

Barr is trying to save his image, which was corrupted from the jump.

She's gorgeous! An out loud and proud!
I loved Nas' statement.

I may have to watch Miss USA when it's on!

I'm still bothered that Kinzinger stayed on the Thing 45 bandwagon while he was in office, but he gets props for speaking out now!
And I find it ironic and vile that the Party of Law and Order treats a police officer this way.

Mostly good stuff, which I like.

I've always thought of Mittsy as a bit of a flip-flopper but it is refreshing to see both him and Kinzinger speak up.
Lil Nas and Kataluna rock, and rule.
I cheer Michael Fanone for speaking out.
And, as AM might say, Bill Barr can FOAD!!!

Barr is a coward!

I don't know if the tide is actually changing yet, but the waves are growing much smaller.

The members of Congress who are insurrection/big lie supporters are such chicken shits they can't look the police in the eye and do the right thing, which is tell the truth and apologize. I like Kinzinger. I suppose his district will get rid of him. Kataluna is gorgeous. Too little too late from Bill Barr.
