Happy Independence Day! Today is our nation's 238th birthday, and it is being celebrated across the country with parade, concerts, barbecues and after sunset, massive fireworks displays.
Well, except on those parts of the Eastern Seaboard where Hurricane Arthur is making a mess of things.
It's Friday, and y'all know that that means TransGriot readers.
It's that part of the week that y'all tell me you absolutely love in terms of me calling out this week's fool, fools or group of fools in the weekly TransGriot Shut Up Fool Awards.
So without further delay, let's get to me calling out with your help the hypocrisy, stupidity, and just WTF moments that made these people SUF award worthy.
Honorable mention number one I stay local for in christopimp Rev. Max Miller, who is shilling for homobigot Dave Welch in their GOP sponsored attempt to roll back the HERO.
Max during his gross violation of Exodus 20:16 stated that he and fellow gay baiting ministers weren't anti-gay because they had gat family members.
Um, yes you are, especially when you pushed a petition drive on behalf of white conservafools seeking to repeal Houston's newly passed a comprehensive human rights law that protects the human rights of everyone in our city limits.
Honorable mention number two goes to 2011 Shut Up Fool of the Year Herman Cain for making homophobic cracks about Burger King's 'Proud Whopper' they sold in a San Francisco arealocation during Pride.Weekend on his website.
Honorable mention number three to Adam Richman, who engaged in fat shaming with a female critic and told her she should kill herself. He lost his new show on the Travel Channel as a result.
Honorable mention number four is Bobbi Kristina Brown, who hurled transmisogyny at Angela Bassett because she was pissed off Bassett turned her down for the role of her mother in a biopic on Whitney Houston she is debut directing
Bobbi Kris, you need to sit your ass down and have several seats. Your mother was one of the 50 most beautiful women on the planet, a multiple Grammy Award winning singer, actress and a ground breaking teen fashion model. The only thing your spoiled brat ass shares with your mother is her DNA.
Honorable mention number five is Joan Rivers for her transmisogynist and racist comment that First Lady Michelle Obama is a transsexual. It's not cool to attack the femininity of the FLOTUS by calling her a trans woman when there is ample evidence she isn't. It's racist to do that when there is a 400 year history of the femininity of Black women being denigrated.
This is also not the first time you've made a comment aimed at the First Lady that has gone flat. We still haven't forgotten the offensive Blackie O 'joke'. As someone of Jewish heritage who comes from a people who know firsthand what it is like to be dehumanized, you should know better.
This week's shut up fool is a group award for the five conservative male justices of the SCOTUS for the Hobby Lobby decision.
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg says it best for me in her scathing dissent of the 5-4 decision.
I'm going to say this. SCOTUS conservafool majority, shut up fools!
