Shut Up Fool Awards-Easter Weekend 2015 Edition

After bouncing around the country for the last month, I get to slow down just in time for Easter Weekend and try to decide what open, affirming and radically inclusive church I will attend this Sunday for Easter services.

Today is Good Friday, in which according to our faith tradition Jesus Christ was crucified and died on the cross and rose from death on Easter Sunday.

This Good Friday is also one in which I get to do our usual TransGriot business of calling out the fools in our midst, and I need to get started doing that.

Honorable mention number one is Rush Limbaugh, who I gots to call out for comparing gay marriage to bestiality in an attempt to defend the discriminatory Indiana RFRA..   Hey you should know, you're a beast no woman wants to marry or stay married to..

Honorable mention number two is the idiots who came up with the #whitegirlsrock hashtag because their vanillacentric privileged fee-fee were 'offended' by Black women and girls owning their power. 

"So whoever is offended by Black Girls Rock!-ing and whoever thinks that black empowerment threatens their own power should confront their own racism"
-Beverly Bond, Founder of #BlackGirlsRock

And from Olivia Cole's (a white female BTW) Huff Po post:

“All of the things you take for granted are what you're protecting when you shout down Black Girls Rock: your Whiteness, the system that upholds your face as the supreme standard of beauty, your place in the center of a culture that demands people of color remain hidden in the margins, present, but only barely and never overshadowing the White hero/heroine. Your discomfort with black girls who rock tells me that you prefer the status quo: you prefer for black faces to remain hidden, you prefer for America's heroes to have White faces, you prefer for black actresses to wear aprons and chains.”
-Olivia Cole

Honorable mention number three is Pat Robertson, who crawled out of his crypt and unleashed the cray-cray on his 700 666 Club show.    First he told the anti-gay pizza makers in Indy to 'shut up' because they want to continue pimping their tired 'oppressed Christian cake baker' spin line.

Honorable mention number four is Rick Santorum, who displayed his lack of knowledge of American History and called the separation of church and state a Communist idea.   Rick, didn't know that Thomas Jefferson and James Madison were on a par with Lenin and Karl Marx.

The purpose of separation of church and state is to keep forever from these shores the ceaseless strife that has soaked the soil of Europe in blood for centuries.”
-James Madison

Honorable mention number four is Richard Sheridan, the longtime gaybaiter in Dallas who is a write in candidate for mayor who was just busted for connection to a recent anti-gay vandalism spree

Honorable mention number five is Tom Cotton, who thinks that critics of the Indiana RFRA 'should get perspective'.

How about you 'get the perspective' that discrimination is not acceptable in this country?

Honorable mention number six is Ted Nugent, who crawled out from the rock he's been under and blamed the POTUS for the suicides of veterans.

So sayeth the chickenhawk who avoided service in Vietnam.

This week's Shut Up Fool winner. is Michele Bachmann, who just compared the POTUS to Andreas Lubitz, the pilot who caused the Germanwings crash last week in her WTF level criticism of the Iran nuclear deal..

People are still grieving over that terrible tragedy and you open your mouth to let something that stupid fly out of it.

Yeah, we get it that you and your fellow Republifools are doing Bibi Netanyahu's dirty work for him and trying to undermine this deal so this country will be forced into another war.   But as Winston Churchill once said, "It is better to jaw jaw than to war war."

Thank God you are no longer in Congress.   And you need to shut your jaw jaws up fool!

Michele Bachmann, shut up fool!
