Shut Up Fool Awards-Post Fourth Anniversary Edition

January 30 was the fourth anniversary of the first time I gave out the weekly Shut Up Fool Award on TransGriot.   That first SUF recipient was Fox Noise's Juan Williams

We enter the fifth year of them with a more urgent need than ever to expose the hypocrisy, ignorance and downright conscientious stupidity that motivated me to create this popular feature on this blog in the first place.

The weekly Shut Up Fool Award has morphed into a Shut Up Fool of The Year and Shut Up Fool Lifetime Achievement Award of which the next five losers winners will be revealed during Oscar weekend.

Speaking of winners, I had a lot to choose from this week, so let's see which fool, fools, or group of fools get honored with this week's SUF Award.

Honorable mention number one goes to San Francisco 49ers defensive back Chris Culliver.  Idiot forgot he plays pro ball for a fan base that does fly the rainbow flag and let fly with homophobic statements in a Super Bowl Week media interview that the 49ers swiftly countered.with this statement.

“The San Francisco 49ers reject the comments that were made [Tuesday], and have addressed the matter with Chris. There is no place for discrimination within our organization at any level. We have and always will proudly support the LGBT community.”

Chris tried to do damage control in a subsequent interview, but the damage has been done.

Honorable mention number two goes to Virginia GOP gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli, who is reading the Rmoney playbook to electoral success.  He's releasing a book February 12 with comments echoing the 47% ones that sunk Mittens failed presidential campaign that Democratic candidate Terry McAuliffe will probably whack Cuccinelli with all the way to November and the governor's mansion.

Honorable mention number three goes to Tennessee state rep Stacey Campfield (R) for bringing back last's year's failed Don't Say Takei Gay bill with the more odious requirement of mandating that teachers and counselors of grade K-8 students inform the parents of kids who identify as LGBT.

This week's winner is Gayle Trotter of the conservafool Independent Women's Forum.  She was at the Senate gun violence hearing using stereotypes women have spent decades fighting against to justify for her gun manufacturer paymasters killing regulations to ban assault weapons.

You have to see this bull feces to believe it.

Gayle Trotter, shut up fool!
