Shut Up Fool Awards-Houston's Hot Edition

It's been a little warmer than normal for early June here in H-town.   The week began with back to back record 105 degree F days on Sunday and Monday, but cooled down to just a mere 95 degrees F high yesterday.

The predicted H-Town temperature for today is only 92 degrees F, so it's dropping back down to the temps we normally see for this time of year (thank God).  I'm already cognizant of the fact that June 21 hasn't arrived yet, and neither has the month of August when we usually get our triple digit temps.      

That's okay, as long as I have plenty of Blue Bell in the freezer in my favorite flavors, I'll be alright

It's Friday, and y'all know what time it is.   It's time once again to discover who is going to be our Shut Up Fool Award winner for this week.

As always, we had a bumper crop of fools across the political spectrum this week.   Ann Coulter, Sean Hannity, Rep Paul Ryan (R-WI), Rep Eric Cantor (R-VA)  Herman Cain, Rick Santorum,  Rep Anthony Weiner (D-NY), a Fox Noise group award, a group award for the Transsexual Taliban, and the blogger RIPPA.

Honorable mention this week goes to comedian Tracy Morgan for his June 3 comedy routine in Nashville, TN that bombed big time when he went on a homophobic tirade onstage with Truth Wins Out's Kevin Rogers in the audience.   Morgan reportedly slammed President Obama for supporting the LGBT community, called homosexuality a choice, and even threatened to stab his own son to death if he ever came home from school and told his father he was gay.

When the audience tuned on him, Morgan remarked, "If gays can take a dick up their ass, they can take a joke.”

But this week's award goes to Wanda Sykes, who said during a recent interview with Piers Morgan it's harder to be gay than Black.

 “I’m not talking about the history of black people, of African Americans. I’m talking about at this point right now… I don’t know of organizations and groups like Focus on the Family and such anti-gay organizations who are putting up so much money – millions and millions of dollars – into stopping me from, you know, being black or telling me I can’t exercise my blackness,"

 To quote Maya Wilkes, Oh Hell No!

Did you forget about the Republican Party and the same conservafool movement are also spending millions of dollars to steal elections, roll back the civil rights progress we fought, marched and died for and love oppressing Black people be they straight, gay, cis or trans?

What you said was another one of the problematic anti-Black statements you've made since you came out, and it's already being seized on by gays wishing to pimp the BS 'Blacks are uniquely homophobic meme.'

Wanda Sykes, shut the HELL up  fool!
