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.
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.
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.
