Shut Up Fool Awards-Jadeveon's A Texan Edition

(AP Photo/Craig Ruttle) The 2014 NFL Draft started last night and will run through Saturday.  Thanks to their disastrous 2-14 season the Texans had the first overall pick, and they wisely used it to select DE Jadeveon Clowney of South Carolina 

Can't wait to see him and JJ Watt terrorizing quarterbacks this season

Speaking of terror, it's time for us to segue to our normal Friday 'bidness' of finding out which fool, fools or group of fools exhibited mind numbing ignorance, over the top hypocrisy and head scratching stupidity.

Yep, it's time for this week's Shut Up Fool Awards.

Honorable mention number one is Mark Angelo Cummings, the Florida based trans fool who needs to have several sections of seats in Marlins Park, have a sweet tea flavored glass of STFU along with a Cuban sandwich.   Marky Mark decided to try to step to me again and made himself look clueless in the process when he tried to claim that racism doesn't exist unless it's against white people   

Seriously?    Mark, as I and other people have patiently tried to explain to your willfully ignorant and clueless ass (and predictably in his vanillacentric privileged arrogance labeled us 'angry' for doing so), Racism = bigotry /prejudice + systemic power.   POC's do not  (at least until 2040) have the collective power to oppress whites the way that has been and continues to be done to non-white people by the white majority for centuries. 

It is yours and other white transpeople's clueless dismissal of the point that race and class matter in Trans World, affect a gender transition, bring issues unique to trans communities of color that lead trans POC's to tell you white trans peeps to kiss our azz, form our own orgs and do our own advocacy independent of you.

So I ask the question you continue to fail to answer:  Why y'all so scurred of Black transpeople owing their power?

Honorable mention number two is Uniguest, the Nashville, TN based company that provides Net Nanny software programs for hotel business centers that can't tell the difference between a trans porn site and a GLAAD Award nominated African-American trans blog or a social organization in BTMI/BTWI that focuses on uplifting trans people.  

Yeah, can you tell I'm still pissed about not being able to access my blog in the Doubletree's business center during BTAC?

Honorable Mention number three is North Carolina Pink Republican Steve Wile, who has been campaigning on an anti-gay and anti-same sex marriage platform and got busted for being a drag queen.

Well, well.   Another example of a hypocritical anti-gay Republican

Honorable Mention number four goes to all of Satan's Helpers, Houston Division who continue to oppose the HERO on specious religious grounds.

Honorable Mention number five goes to Jim Coughlan, the Republican (surprise, surprise) controller of Dutchess County, NY who is running for a NY state senate seat.   He got busted for aiming a racist Tweet at MSNBC commentator Melissa Harris-Perry, and then when he got called on it, put out a statement claiming he hadn't seen Harris-Perry's work, didn't know she was African-American and claimed it was just a line from the Planet of the Apes movie and wasn't directed at her.

Yeah right.   Jim, hope you are aware that apes also look like you, too.

New York peeps, make sure this fool doesn't get a seat in your state senate.

Dan Patrick
This week's Shut Up Fool is Texas state Senator Dan Patrick, who is running for the GOP nomination for Texas Lt Governor.

Patrick opened his mouth during a debate with current Lt Governor David Dewhurst to claim it was a myth that Planned Parenthood had anything to do with Texas women's heath.

Note to Dan:  Google is your friend.   The facts are:
*Planned Parenthood health centers focus on prevention: 71 percent of our clients receive services to prevent unintended pregnancy.

*Planned Parenthood services help prevent more than 486,000 unintended pregnancies each year.

*Planned Parenthood provides 585,000 Pap tests and nearly 640,000 breast exams each year, critical services in detecting cancer.

*Planned Parenthood provides nearly 4.5 million tests and treatments for sexually transmitted infections, including HIV.

*Three percent of all Planned Parenthood health services are abortion services.

*Planned Parenthood affiliates provide educational programs to more than one million young people and adults each year.

I'm not even going to rehash all of the other ignorant and bigoted stuff he's said while campaigning for the GOP Lt. Governor's nomination.  It's at myth that the Republican Party cares about anyone that isn't a conservative white male.

Dan Patrick, shut up fool!
