It's the last Friday in the month of April. All the Team Taurus birthdays are being celebrated today. Baseball season has started along with the MLS and NWSL seasons. The NHL and NBA playoffs have started, and the NFL has already released their schedule for the 2014 regular season.
Up I-45 north from me the final preparations are being made for the Black Trans Advocacy Conference set to start four days from now.
And yeah, next weekend I'll be blessed to have another birthday.
But y'all didn't come here to hear all this jibber-jabber. Y'all want to find out who won this week's Shut Up Fool Award.
So let's get busy finding out what fool, fools or group of fools distinguished themselves this week.
Honorable mention number one is Georgia Gov Nathan Deal (R) who signed a law allowing guns everywhere in Georgia including bars. Just what we need, armed drunks.
Honorable mention number two is SCOTUS Chief Justice John Roberts, who in the wake of another wrongheaded decision on affirmative action got excoriated by Justice Sonia Sotomayor who correctly called him and his conservative majority out of touch
Honorable mention number three goes to Ugandan Catholic bishop Charles Wamika, who in his Easter Message praised the Anti-Homosexuality Act and preached genocide against his fellow LGBT Ugandans.
Somebody's going to have to repent for all this evil, and I submit it won't be the gay community of Uganda.
Honorable mention number four is a joint award for drag queen Alaska Thunderfuck and HuffPostGay. The drag queen got in hot water when he posted a video lampooning hated in their ranks trans writer Parker Marie Molloy that ended with Molloy being shot . HuffPostGay initially posted to their site and later had to take down when the wrath of the trans community and our supporters was visited upon them..
I'm going to say this point one more time. It is unacceptable and dangerous to advocate for the murder of any person
simply because you disagree with what they say, and especially when that person is
part of a despised marginalized group who is targeted far too often with murderous violence aimed at it.
This week's Shut Up Fool Award winner is right wing cowboy Cliven Bundy. The newly minted right wing hero, welfare cheat and racist extremist was pumped up by FOX Noise's Sean Hannity before he started flapping his gums and letting ignorant startement come out of it that sent all the pols like Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), TX GOP gubernatorial candidate Greg Abbott, Sen Dean Heller (R-NV) running like Uisain Bolt away from him..
Bundy parted his lips to say this racist tripe about Black people
Bundy then continued to flap his loud and wrong gums and ask why he and his right wing gun nuts weren't getting any support from communities of color for their anti-government protest.
Because for starters you're a bunch of bigoted terrorists in armed rebellion against the federal governemnt and we want no part of that.
Cliven Bundy, shut up fool!
