Stacey Campfield. No, that is not what my porn name would be if I took my middle name and the street on which I was raised. Stacey Campfield is a state senator of Tennessee, who also happens to be the Gingrich Tennessee Campaign co-chair. Stacey is especially known for introducing a bill that would require death certificate for aborted foetuses, and mandating that women of Tennessee who seek abortions get ultrasounds of their wombs prior to the procedure.
Don’t worry, gays, Stacey Campfield doesn’t reserve his disdain just for women! He hates you too! :-D. Campfield introduced a bill that would ban discussions of homosexuality in classroom grades K-8, the nicknamed “Don’t Say Gay” bill. Because if you don’t talk about something, it doesn’t exist! He also claimed that homosexual men pay higher insurance rates due to their risky lifestyles and their low life expectancy…”risky lifestyle” is a euphemism for “butt sex”. Because you all know, gay dudes are always just ramming their dicks up people’s butts, like, all the time! In January, he repeated the claim that a gay male flight attendant f***ed a monkey while in Africa, got AIDS, and spread it to the world. Even in the face of the facts, he hunkered down and stuck to his story.
OK, a few things: (1) What is it with these anti-gay activists focusing strictly on anal sex? Do they have butt fetishes? (2) Would the “Don’t Say Gay” bill, if passed, bar same-sex couples from going to PTA meetings for their children? Must the children of same-sex couples not talk about their parents? (3) By what logic would a flight attendant get off of a plane, and instead of heading to the nearest bar to pick up men (or women), head straight to the jungle and say, “Ooh look, a monkey! I’m gonna f*** it!”?
Perhaps Martha Boggs, owner of the Bistro at the Bayou in Knoxville, TN, had the same questions running through her head as well. When the “good” senator went to her restaurant to eat, he was refused service and asked to leave the premises. Boggs’ reason: "He's gone from being stupid to dangerous. It's just my way of standing up to a bully”. Bravo, Ms Boggs. Should I find myself in Knoxville, I am going patronise the f*** out of your establishment. F*** H8.
As expected, Campfield blogged about the incident and brought up another civil rights movement:
"In the 60's my grandfather sat at the lunch counters with the blacks in Knoxville to help break up the segregation of the races. I guess some people still support segregation…Some people have told me my civil rights were violated under the 1964 civil rights act in that a person cannot be denied service based on their religious beliefs…I just figured this is just another example of the open minded tolerant left. They claim tolerances for divergent points of view.....Until someone actually has one. Then they don't know how to handle it."
Oh, I think they knew how to handle it. After all, you did get you’re a** bounced out of the restaurant. Furthermore, “the blacks”? I am having a hard time believing ANYONE in your family sat with “the blacks” in the 1960’s. Maybe it’s true, but I wouldn’t be surprised if you made up that as well.
The best thing about these anti-gay pundits is that they get very mad when you make comparisons to the Racial Civil Rights Movement and the LGBT fight for equal rights, yet they are so quick to bring up the Civil Rights act and claim their First Amendment rights were violated when someone stands up to them. To an extent, they’re right; they are being discriminated against, but it’s because they are bigots. Liberals are bigoted against bigots. If you wish to stifle someone’s rights because he/she is different from you and you don’t understand it, then I want nothing to do with you. Don’t get me wrong; you have every right to speak your mind on a subject. Just remember, people have every right to respond to your exercise of free speech, so long as it does not violate your rights. If a wedding planning agency refuses service to gay clientele, the company can’t get mad if the gay clientele initiates a boycott. If you say that gay dude + monkey + butt-f***ing = AIDS, don’t whine when a restaurant owner refuses you service. Just as you’re picking lines of the bible to follow to justify your bigotry, you can’t pick and choose what parts of the Constitution you’re going to follow. Go all in.
