Shut Up Fool Awards-Stupidity Is Too Damn High Edition
Every week I shine the TransGriot spotlight on the people or groups that exhibit outrageous hypocrisy, mind numbing stupidity, overbearing arrogance, and jaw dropping ignorance for your perusal.
And now, let's get busy revealing this week's fools.
Honorable mention number one we go across The Pond for in British TERF Julie Bindel who asserted being gay is a choice. I know more than a few peeps in the GL end of the community who have some elegant and not so elegant things to say to her behind on that topic, so I'll let them call her out.. I'll have fun with her the next time she says something transphobic.
Honorable mention number two is a favorite for this year's Shut Up Fool of the Year Award in Rep. Louie Gohmert. (R-TX). Gohmert Pyle racistly opened his mouth to charge that the POTUS would protect women from 'hundreds of thousands of immigrant rapists'
Who is going to protect us from your hundreds of thousands of hours of clueless and racist jibber-jabber?
Honorable mention number three is Rep Renee Ellmers (R-NC) for her idiotic comment about men needing to bring policy discussion down 'to a woman's level'.
hmm, methinks you've had too many washes, sets, and cranial rinses at the GOP Stepford Salon.
Honorable mention number four is ExxonMobil, who got busted by HRC for lying about their non discrimination policies.
Honorable mention number five is the National Library of Singapore, which announced they would be destroying all pro-LGBT books Still won't change the fact that TBLG people exist in your nation and everywhere else around the world.
Honorable mention number six is Thomas Thorpe, who is facing first degree murder charges in Florida, refused help from the public defender assigned to him because the public defender in question is African-American.
This week's Shut Up Fool winner is Tea Klux Klan member Scott Esk, who is running for the Oklahoma legislature as a Teapublican and had comments resurface this week that gays should be stoned to death. .
Instead of criticizing him, we should be thanking him for being candid enough to reveal he's a homophobic bigot. He also proves once again why I loathe libertarians even more than I do Republicans.
Election Day is rapidly approaching. handle your business people.
And oh yeah, Scott Esk, shut up fool!
