Ever have a day (or in my case, night) where as soon you look at your social network of choice, you just want to scream “Fuck!!” at the top of your lungs? Lately, that seems to be the case whenever I get an update from a friend in my home state (who we’ll call Twiggy to protect his identity). We met in school before I was expelled, and he was one of the most open-minded, if naive, people I knew, but since moving back to his hometown, he has become, essentially, a closed-minded imbecile.
In high school, Twiggy was a gay artist who was completely against the policies of Dubya, saying they were a plague on the country that was going to lead us to world war 3. Flash forward 5 or 6 years, and now he hates the current administration, thinks that everything POTUS has done in the last term and a half is destroying our country from the inside out, and has shown his utter disdain for civility by ending the post that sparked this rant with “Call me crazy but I’m beginning to get the idea that Romney would’ve made a better president than Saddam…um, I mean Obama. “ This kind of bullshit is something that sounds natural coming from an RWNJ, but not from a (presumably still) intelligent gay male who’s greatest achievements are in arts.
Make no mistake, I’m not deifying our president; I know he’s made mistakes (the NDAA being one of the biggest ones), but I also point out where he’s gone right (Do I need to list examples?). My problem here isn’t that he doesn’t support the president – that’s his prerogative, and his right as a citizen – my problem is that he seems to be proving the theory that the GOP’s brand of conservatism is a disease more virulent than the common cold. Unfortunately, it seems like it’s only going to get worse.
Because I enjoy pain and suffering, I am signed up for several emails from right wing hatemongers and professional liars. One of them, Eugene Delgaudio stands out for his prolific and incredibly unbalanced emails. Several times a week, I get a breathless message telling me all about the homosexual agenda and how they want to destroy America.
Here are a few samples:
I see well-known agents of the radical Homosexual Lobby everywhere. They are huddled in dark corners scheming and plotting. They meet secretly with members of Congress in hopes of tempting them to advance their perverse agenda with campaign cash and the promise of votes. (3/24)
The radical homosexuals know that they cannot pass their perverted agenda by vote, so they resort to activist courts and aggressive legislators. (3/10)
The Offense to Marriage Act, repealing the Defense of Marriage Act which has stood for over a decade against the Homosexual Lobby.
If passed, wedding gown-clad men smooching before some left-wing clergyman or state official is just the beginning.
You’ll see men hand-in-hand skipping down to adoption centers to “pick out” a little boy for themselves. (3/06)
I read this crap on a regular basis so you don’t have to. Let me just climb back up on my cross now…
As you can see, this person is either mentally unstable or just lying through his teeth. In either case, he is obviously a bigot of the highest order. I’m not even sure how I got on his list and, until now, I didn’t know who he was. Turns out he is an elected official. Yeah, This guy is a government worker while sending out these emails and running what is now officially labeled a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. And he’s been reelected more than once.
Yeah, conservatives don’t have a problem with bigotry but liberals are the real monsters.
