Shut Up Fool Awards-Let's Call Out The Fools Edition

Well, it's Friday, so y'all know that means it's time for another episode of the Shut Up Fool awards in which I get to call out jaw dropping hypocrisy, mind numbing ignorance and just straight up over the top lies.

So let's get to this week's fools.

Honorable mention number one is Linda Harvey, for suggesting on her radio show Wednesday in her attack on Laverne Cox and the trans rights movement that Satan is behind her trans rights advocacy. 

Linda, stop projecting   Church Lady, tell me who you think is backing Linda's show.  

Honorable mention number two goes to North Carolina US Senate candidate Thom Tillis, who let his pointed hood show and uttered in an interview that White people are the only 'traditional Americans'.

I shouldn't be shocked he said it since he admires the late race baiting Sen. Jesse Helms (R-NC)  
And how's that GOP voter outreach to non-whites working again?   Oh yeah, that's right, you pushed that voter suppression law in your state as the Speaker of the House.  

You know, repeatedly saying racist crap makes your task of trying to beat Sen. Kay Hagan in November harder when you keep pissing off North Carolina's Black and Latino voters.

Honorable mention number three I go local for in Dave Wilson.   The fake Black person for electoral purposes at a recent HCC board of trustees meeting asked that the school withdraw from participation in this year's June 28 Houston Pride parade.   The longtime gay baiter and one of our HERO haters offensively compared it to participating a Klan parade which openly gay HCC trustee Zeph Cappo blasted him on among other HCC trustees.  . 

Will the trial date to remove his ass from the HCC board hurry up and get here? .

Honorable mention number four is for Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R), who opened his mouth and inserted foot about the just passed Texas TGOP plank on reparative therapy.

January 2015 can't get here soon enough.  
Honorable mention number five is Daniel Snyder.   He''s channeling George Preston Marshall and refusing to change the offensive nickname of the Washington NFL franchise he owns despite mounting pressure and another blow from the US Patent Office.   The Trademark Patent and Appeal Board in a 2-1 decision canceled six trademarks on the offensive nickname citing the nickname was offensive to a substantial composite of native Americans.

That pressure only increased after this devastating commercial was aired during the NBA Finals

Honorable mention number six is Rep Steve King (R-IA) who once again showed off his acute case of Obama Derangement Syndrome and compared the POTUS to North Korean dictator Kim Jung Un. 

If he was Steve, your behind along with many of your fellow wingers would be behind barbed wire in the sunny climes of Guantanamo.

This week's shut Up Fool award goes to Mike Huckabee.   This fool at the sparsely attended NOM sponsored rally for marriage Thursday in DC parted his lips to use a section of Dr King's Letter Form Birmingham City Jail to make his loud and wrong argument conflating their losing battle against gay marriage to fighting Naziism.  .

Oh hell no.   Don't even try to take the Good Doctor's words out of context like that.   We already know from his late wife Coretta what Dr King's views would have probably been on this subject

“Freedom from discrimination based on sexual orientation is surely a fundamental human right in any great democracy, as much as freedom from racial, religious, gender, or ethnic discrimination.”
-Coretta Scott King,. National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, 2000.

“I still hear people say that I should not be talking about the rights of lesbian and gay people and I should stick to the issue of racial justice,” she said. “But I hasten to remind them that Martin Luther King Jr. said, ‘Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.’” “I appeal to everyone who believes in Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream to make room at the table of brother- and sisterhood for lesbian and gay people,”
-Coretta Scott King, March 31, 1998.

Those are just two quotes on the subject.  She's been saying it since 1994. 

And I have a Dr. King quote for you to ponder. 

"Any religion that professes to be concerned with the souls of men and is not concerned with the slums that damn them, the economic conditions that strangle them, and the social conditions that cripple them is a dry-as-dust religion." -- Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr

So how dare you Mike Huckabee, twist the words of Dr King to fit your dry as dust so called religious agenda when conservatives like you spent much time demonizing the man in life and even in death?

Have several seats and shut the hell up fool!
