I really can’t stand a**holes. I mean...I probably AM one, but only to other a**holes. I guess I dislike pre-emptive a**holes. The Family Research Council is a group of pre-emptive a**holes. Their name belies their true intentions. They claim to want to maintain the American family, but then they do everything to destroy people’s families through Islamophobic rants, anti-sex education initiatives, and homophobic rhetoric. Most of what they say to get hate-based legislation and initiatives out there are booklets of lies with a contorted bible verse stamped on them. then they say they do what they do because they care about the direction of our country. There was this one country in Europe who’s main political party cared so much about its country, it murdered 7 million people (not counting soldiers who fought against them) to prove it. That started with pamphlets, too...just saying...
Floyd Lee Corkins probably shares my sentiment about FRC, as he allegedly walked into the DC headquarters, uttered something to the effect of, “I don’t like your politics,” and opened fire, shooting a security guard before being subdued. Floyd Lee Corkins is a f***ing a**hole. Now the FRC is on every conservative news site (...so basically the 700 Club, Fox News, TBN, and your local Chick-Fil-A) claiming that the Southern Poverty Law Centre (a group that designates hate groups), GLAAD, and other pro-gay groups were the breeding grounds for the type of violence that Corkins enacted. Does this make any sense? The group who routinely depicts non-white, non-Christian, non-heterosexual people as less-than-human are claiming that groups who want everyone to be treated equally are breeding grounds for violence. This is your fault, Corkins. What were you trying to do, start up a new radical leftist group that uses the threat of violence as a tool instead of the law itself? Were you going to call it the Pink Panthers or something?...OK, maybe not “Pink Panthers”; copyright infringement...But still, you gave the FRC the ammo more rhetoric to fire back. A**hole.
Charlie Rogers, a lesbian woman from Lincoln, NE, claimed that on 22nd July her house was invaded. The assailants stripped her naked, tied her up with zip ties, carved homophobic slurs on her body, then torched the house with her in it. She escaped to the neighbour’s house and call the police. A month later, on 21st August, Rogers was arrested for making a false report. There is overwhelming evidence that her wounds were self-inflicted and that she may have staged the whole thing. If this is true and Rogers lied, then she is one crazy a**hole. There are too many d***s in America who claim that half the reports of assaults on women are false claims and that the wolf-criers just want attention or revenge for bad nights. This, of course, is the farthest from the truth. Only a completely demented f*** would lie about such a heinous crime. Furthermore, there are more than enough crimes against the LGBTQ community. You didn’t have to make this up. Now the antis are going to say that the real numbers are inflated, leading to even more crimes to go unreported. If your crime was faked, you’ve indirectly endangered people’s lives. A**hole.
The lesson here is that a**holes come in all shapes and sizes. The unfortunate thing is that if you are not a white, Anglo-Saxon, Christian, heterosexual male, your a**holery will be scrutinised, and your actions will reflect on whatever minority group to which you belong. It sucks, and it’s not fair, but it’s true. One woman throws a tantrum in the office, and now ALL women are crazy. One black dude banged a white girl some time ago, and now we’re ALL after your pretty little white children...OK, that actually might be true for Clarence Thomas and OJ Simpson, but the rest of us don’t really care! Minority a**holes, please be careful of where/when you display your douchebaggery. You’re giving your detractors ammo every time you load YOUR guns.
