Bill Maher Actually Makes a Valid Point as People Laugh: “There Is A Gay Mafia, If You Cross Them, You Do Get Whacked” … The Intollerance of the Gay Rights Activists
Liberal comedian Bill Maher proves even a blind squirrel finds an acorn every so often …
During the online-only “Overtime” portion of HBO’s ‘Real Time’ with Bill Maher, the liberal comedian weighed in on the Mozilla controversy, and his comments may actually surprise you. Maher seemed to disagree with gay rights activists for targeting Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich because of a 2008 $1000 donation to support a ballot initiative, proposition 8, that would ban same-sex marriage in California. Not only did the gay right activists target Brendan Eich, they successfully got him removed from Mozilla for simply applying his First Amendment rights of free speech. Bill Maher said, “There is a Gay Mafia, if you cross them, you do get whacked.”
Gay Rights activists just crossed a line that they will wish one day they did not. Paybacks are as they say, a bitch.
MAHER: What do you think about the Mozilla CEO having to step down over his donation to a pro-Proposition 8 group.
The Mozilla — which I’m wearing right now, by the way. I didn’t know what Mozilla was. I saw it on my computer, but — it’s Firefix, right? It’s the browser.
So this guy apparently does not want gay people to get married and he had to step down. What do you think of that, the question asks.
FMR. REP. TOM DAVIS (R-VA): Because he gave $1,000 eight years ago and it’s come back to haunt him.
CARRIE SHEFFIELD, FORBES: Well, and he gave it when President Obama was still against gay marriage. So, I don’t think it’s very fair.
MAHER: Good point. Also, I think there is a gay mafia. I think if you cross them, you do get whacked.
Founder of Westboro Baptist Church Rev. Fred Phelps Sr. is Dead at 84 … Oh the Irony, No Funeral for Fred Phelps
Good riddance to bad rubbish … Hell has a new occupant.
Westboro Baptist Church founder Rev. Fred Phelps Sr. has died at age 84. The founder of the controversial church died of natural causes at 11:15 p.m. Wednesday, according to
church spokesman Steve Drain Satan. Phelps and his misguided flock are known for their protesting of military funerals, preaching their “God Hates …” message. Sorry, but you do not have to be a member or even a supporter of the LGBT community to be against Phelps and the WBC. One only needs to have a clue and a sense of compassion. Never has a group of individuals been so misguided, under the guise of religion. Well, except Muslim jihadist extremists.
Fred Phelps — the founding pastor of a Kansas church known for its virulently anti-gay protests at public events, including military funerals — has died, the church said Thursday.
The 84-year-old died of natural causes at 11:15 p.m. Wednesday, according to church spokesman Steve Drain.
Phelps founded Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, Kansas, in 1955 and molded it in his fire-and-brimstone image. Many members of the small congregation are related to Phelps through blood or marriage.
According to Westboro, the church has picketed more than 53,000 events, ranging from Lady Gaga concerts to funerals for slain U.S. soldiers. Typically, a dozen or so church members — including small children — will brandish signs that say “God Hates Fags” and “Thank God for Dead Soldiers.”
Phelps was often called “the most hated man in America,” a label he seemed to relish.
Oh the irony of ironies … according to his daughter, Margie Phelps, there will be no funeral for Fred Phelps. HA!!! What’s the matter, is the Westboro Baptist Church and the Phelps family afraid that a record number of people will show up to picket and protect his funeral, Hmm? Are they afraid that there will be signs by protesters stating, “GOD hates Fred”. Just curious? But this is the way that hypocritical hate works. It would appear that the iront was not lost on American Power either.
Margie Phelps, Phleps daughter, told WIBW-AM that there will be no funeral for him.
Over the weekend, we learned that Phelps was reportedly “on the edge of death.”
In a statement on his Facebook page, Nathan Phelps, who has been estranged from his father for 30 years, said the senior Phelps was dying in hospice care in Topeka, Kan., and that he had been ex-communicated from his own church in August of 2013.
Kudos to Lefitists Holy Bullies and Headless Monsters … Rise above the hate.
I’m sending this message to you in hopes that you may send it on. I hope that as in other times a cooler mind may win out before others make a choice we, the LGBT community, won’t be able to take back. It has been reported today that Fred Phelps has died. It is safe to say that, given his attitude and his devotion to hate, those of us within, and around, the LGBT community will not mourn his end. He caused many families pain at a time when they were already hurting from the death of loved ones. However, this is his legacy, not ours.
As reported at Kansas First News, the founder of the hate-filled, judgmental church may be dead, but the ill-intended message continues. The WBC will continue to picket and spread their message of judgmental hate. Why would they stop, it is the only way they get attention.
Some called his family the most hated in America, and there has been reaction worldwide about the death of that founder of the Westboro Baptist Church, Fred Phelps. According to Tim Phelps, one of Fred Phelps Sr.’s sons, Phelps passed away Wednesday night.
With the news of his passing, there is a question people are asking: Will the picketing stop?
It was business as usual for the members of the Westboro Baptist Church, less than a day after their founder’s death.
“So it’s no different today?” Kansas First News asked Westboro Baptist Church members. ”No different today. Duty is the same,” answered a member who was picketing on 17th and Gage in Topeka.
Fred Phelps Sr., the founder of the radical Westboro Baptist Church is reportedly near death. Phelps is 84. This so-called Kansas church has become infamous for its protests at military funerals and anti-gay sentiments, promoting “Gad Hates Fags”. From the WAPO, members of the Westboro church frequently protest at funerals of soldiers with signs containing messages like “Thank God for dead soldiers” and “Thank God for 9/11,” claiming the deaths are God’s punishment for American immorality and tolerance of homosexuality and abortion. I guess some one forgot to tell this group that God loves, he does not hate.
According to his estranged son via Facebook, Nathan Phelps, Fred Phelps is now on the edge of death at Midland Hospice house in Topeka, Kansas.” Nathan Phelps also said, the elder Phelps was ex-communicated from his own church last year. A second son of the elder Phelps Sr., Nate Phelps, also has confirmed that his father had been voted out of church.
The Rev. Fred Phelps Sr., who founded a Kansas church that’s widely known for its protests at military funerals and anti-gay sentiments, is in a care facility.
Westboro Baptist Church spokesman Steve Drain said Sunday that Phelps is being cared for in a Shawnee County facility. Drain wouldn’t identify the facility but says Phelps is 84 and “having some health problems.”
The information is based on an email sent by the son, Nate Phelps, to a Topeka Capital-Journal reporter. Nate Phelps said his father is near death.
“(Fred) is at Midland Hospice House where, as of yesterday (Friday), he is comfortable without the respiratory difficultly that he was having the day before and is unresponsive,” Nate Phelps wrote, quoting a message sent to him.
After Fred Phelps Sr. was voted out of the church, he was moved to another house where he could be watched for fear of him hurting himself, then he “basically stopped eating and drinking,” Nate Phelps said in the email.
For many years, Fred Phelps Sr. and his wife, Margie Marie Phelps, lived in an upper floor of the church.
A Westboro Baptist Church spokesman declined to comment Sunday on whether a report that Pastor Fred Waldron Phelps Sr. has been excommunicated from the conservative church, known for its controversial anti-gay stance, that he founded in the 1950s.
Sorry, but HATE is not a religion. Isn’t this guy going to be in for a surprise when he finds the Pearly Gates locked and a sign that says, sorry, take this elevator straight to Hell.
Duck Dynasty’s’ Phil Robertson on Indefinite Leave Afrter Following His Remarks on Homosexuality (Update: Phil Robertson Statement – ‘I would never treat anyone with disrespect just because they are different from me’.)
Freedom of Speech & Religion is dead at ‘A&E” … GOOD GRIEF A&E, LET THEM BE!!!
Duck Dynasty is a huge success and loved by so many, but the show may be going the way of the Do-Do bird. A&E has placed Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson on indefinite leave after he dare speak the truth of his religious beliefs in an interview with GQ Magazine. So once again we see that a network does not believe in freedom of speech or freedom of religion for an individual to make comments on his own time that had nothing to do with the show, Duck Dynasty. The comments that got Phil Robertson in trouble:
“It seems like, to me, a vagina – as a man – would be more desirable than a man’s anus. That’s just me,” Robertson stated. “I’m just thinking: There’s more there! She’s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I’m saying? But hey, sin: It’s not logical, my man. It’s just not logical.”
Hat Tip: The Drudge Report
It didn’t take long for the LEFT, GLAAD and LGBT community to go after their scalp.
From The Hollywood Reporter:
A note to A&E, Phil Robertson did not say that his comments or beliefs were that of A&E. So much for tolerance at A&E. The reason why 9 million people watch Duck Dynasty is because these folks are common, folksy people that many can relate to and are real. They are not a train wreck like most all reality shows. How shameful that A&E be pressured by GLAAD.
A&E has placed Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson on indefinite hiatus following anti-gay remarks he made in a recent profile in GQ.
“We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson’s comments in GQ, which are based on his own personal beliefs and are not reflected in the series Duck Dynasty,” A&E said in a statement. “His personal views in no way reflect those of A+E Networks, who have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community. The network has placed Phil under hiatus from filming indefinitely.”
The news comes after Robertson compared homosexuality to bestiality in an interview with the magazine. He’ll likely appear in season four, which bows Jan. 15, since production is largely wrapped.
“It seems like, to me, a vagina — as a man — would be more desirable than a man’s anus,” Robertson says in the January issue of the men’s magazine. “That’s just me. I’m just thinking: There’s more there! She’s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I’m saying? But hey, sin: It’s not logical, my man. It’s just not logical.”
Weasel Zippers adds, Phil Robertson said, “It seems like, to me, a vagina—as a man—would be more desirable than a man’s anus. That’s just me.” So true … and I would add that probably 99% of the men that watch Duck Dynasty probably feel the same.
UPDATE I: A&E released this statement from Phil Robertson addressing the controversy:
“I myself am a product of the 60s; I centered my life around sex, drugs and rock and roll until I hit rock bottom and accepted Jesus as my Savior. My mission today is to go forth and tell people about why I follow Christ and also what the Bible teaches, and part of that teaching is that women and men are meant to be together. However, I would never treat anyone with disrespect just because they are different from me. We are all created by the Almighty and like Him, I love all of humanity. We would all be better off if we loved God and loved each other.” Beyond that.
UPDATE II: Just another case of MEDIA BIAS.
Many people have argued over the years, in the face of the obvious evidence, that the media cannot be systematically biased to the Left because it would not make business sense to spurn more than half the population as customers. However, the recent decision by A&E to fire its biggest and most lucrative TV star because it is more concerned about catering to homosexuals than making money vividly demonstrates that politics and propaganda are more important to the media companies than making a profit:
FEAR THE BEARD!!!
A&E best be very careful as a backlash boycott and protest of the network and their sponsors by the 9 million viewers of Duck Dynasty could be right around the corner. A&E might want to “Fear the Beard,” this down home, country family is more popular than A&E.
UPDATE III: Sarah Palin blasts A&E for their suspension of Phil Robertson; Declares free speech ‘endangered species.’
- Rumors of Bert & Ernie being gay have circulated for years. Official word is that they aren’t gay or straight, they are puppets and don’t exist below the waist
Daily Commentary – Friday, July 5, 2013 Download
Hmm, Lady Gaga Sings The Star-Spangled Banner at NYC Gay Pride Event … “Land of the Free, and the Home for the Gay”
SHAMEFUL … You know, I do not care what side of the gay marriage debate you are on, I do care that you show respect for the Star Spangled Banner.
Why does the following not surprise me at all? Lady Gaga sang “The Star-Spangled Banner” to kick off New York City’s gay pride celebration Friday night by changing the lyrics to pander to the folks in the crowd that were celebrating the Supreme Court’s two recent gay marriage rulings. The ever-controversial singer sang the following while clenching a “rainbow” gay flag, “Oh say does that star-spangled flag of pride yet wave” and then disrespectfully changed the lyrics to … “O’er the land of the free, and the home for the gay”.
And they wonder why some folks have an issue? You just can’t keep it classy. You claim you want equality, but you take every opportunity to conduct yourselves in an unconventional and provoking manner. You were not pledging your allegiance and proudly singing the anthem to the American flag, you were doing to to the gay flag. Sorry, but I do believe the definition of marriage is that between one man and one woman, as it has been for thousands of years. I think it should be a state’s right to chose. However, that being said, what ever your believe is, is your belief. But do not think that you can force others to believe what they do not. Marriage is more than the common benefits one gets because of being married, that is a perversion of marriage that government has inflicted upon us. No one should get any more or less benefits, entitlements, tax breaks, etc whether they are married or not. However, there is one thing that I do demand and that is that you respect the United States National Anthem and the Star Spangled Banner.
Elon University/Charlotte Observer Poll Has Romney in the Lead over Obama 47% to 43% in North Carolina … 30,000 Names of Dead People Still Registered to Vote in NC
A new poll in North Carolina by the Elon University/Charolotte Observer has GOP candidate Mitt Romney in the lead over President Barack Obama 47% to 43%. Sorry, but even with the Democrat National Convention being held in NC this week, there is no way that Obama is winning the Tar Heel state in 2012. Obama won North Carolina in 2008 by the slimiest of margins. Obama is hard pressed to win NC, especially since he went against their same sex marriage law and especially black churches voiced their outrage.
The new Elon University/Charlotte Observer Poll shows the GOP presidential candidate leading President Barack Obama 47 percent to 43 percent in North Carolina.
The poll, which has a margin of error of 3 percentage points, surveyed likely voters from Aug. 25-30, during the GOP convention in Tampa. Elon did the poll in partnership with the Observer and the News & Observer of Raleigh.
No way that Obama wins North Carolina.With unemployment in NC higher than the national average and the fact that the banking industry is huge in the state. That same banking industry that Barack Obama demonizes. Oh and how comical and hypocritical is it that Obama will be giving his speech in the Bank of America Stadium where the Carolina Panthers play.
Then again, there is always the Democrat constituency of the “Dead” vote. Ever wonder why we need voter ID laws? The following is 30,000 reason why. As the Gateway Pundit opines, you know what they say, 9 out of 10 dead voters vote Democrat.
A Raleigh-based group devoted to reducing the potential for voter fraud presented the N.C. Board of Elections on Friday with a list of nearly 30,000 names of dead people statewide who are still registered to vote.
The Voter Integrity Project compiled the list after obtaining death records from the state Department of Public Health from 2002 to March 31 and comparing them to the voter rolls.
Rick Warren Tweets: @dancathy just called me. #ChickFilA has already set a world record today … As the Left Shows the Hypocrisy of Their Hate
Rick Warren tweeted that Dan Cathy, the CEO of Chick-Fil-A, called him and said that they had already set a world record toda for food sales and there was still 7 hours to go out in the West. Honestly, it does not surprise me at all. The one’s the I frequented today and passed by were a zoo. There were traffic jams at every location and people standing in line as if waiting to go on an amusement park ride at Disney World. At one location I stopped at today, they had served 10,000 customers. A note to the intolerant LEFT, backlash is a bitch. Today, waiting in line for a Chick-Fil-A chicken sandwich in support of free speech, in November it will be waiting in line to take our country back.
Mike Huckabee is amazed at the outpouring and a victory for ‘We the People”
Christians are allowed freedom of speech as well and many are tired of the Anti-Christian sentiment
and attempted censorship of commerce because they disagreed with someone’s opinion.
As Hot Air opined, Somewhere, a Burger King ad man’s toying with the idea of having “The King” declare himself “100% pro-life.” We might want to ad a pro-second amendment “Red Haired” little girl with pony tails as well.
Not a word about today’s activities has been whispered on Chick-fil-A’s feed even though CFA has been trending on Twitter off and on all day. As noted in the earlier post, the suspicion is that the company’s lying low about what’s happening in order to extricate itself from the front line of the culture war, but I wonder if today’s outpouring will draw some sort of recognition tomorrow. If Dan Cathy’s willing to tout the numbers to Rick Warren, presumably an official acknowledgment and thank you is on the way.
I would have to say that because of such a tremendous outpouring of support today by “We the People”, CFA is going to have to make some sort of announcement. When they do, the numbers are going to be staggering.
What the Left and the Gay community does not understand is your hypocrisy makes people ill. You are the first to cry hate speech and discrimination, yet it is you who spews vile hate and intolerance. Like this moonbat, hate filled Leftist (VIDEO) calling others hateful when he is a perfect example of what hate is all about.
Chick-Filet-A Appreciation Day a Resounding Success … Supporters Come Out in Force of Free Speach & Traditional Marriage
Eat Mor Chikin … You Betcha!!!
For those gay activists that thought they were going to protest Chick-Filet-A for the restaurant owners free speech comments have awoke a sleeping, silent majority. Today was Chick-Filet-A Appreciation Day and let me just say wow, what a resounding success.
Huge crowd across America came out in support of Chick-Filet-A today as supporters of the restaurant voiced their right of free speech with their wallets and presence. Every Chick-Filet-A had patrons in endless lines waiting to order stretching out the doors and around the building. Cars waited in lines that wound around the restaurant, into streets. It was simply amazing.
It used to be that taking a bite of a chicken sandwich just meant you were hungry. Now it has become a symbol of whether you stand for or against same-sex marriage, or – alternately – the right to express your personal views without fear of retaliation.
At Chick-fil-A locations across the country, people voted with their wallets today, coming out to express support for the fast-food chain after CEO Dan Cathy said in an interview that he is a firm backer of traditional marriage.
“I believe what the Bible says (about marriage),” Chauncy Fields told us after wolfing down a breakfast of chicken and biscuits. “So I came out here to support Chick-fil-A and the movement.”
On a personal note, today I passed by five Chick-Filet-A restaurants during the morning hours, lunch time and this evening. OMG, the cars and people were everywhere waiting patiently in line to order their food and show their support for CEO Dan Cathy, Chick-Fil-A, free speech and traditional marriage. I went out for lunch today to go to Chick-Fil-A to show my support and there were so many cars as far as the eye could see wrapped around the building twice and into the adjacent mall parking lot. Needless to say, I had to pass. However, this evening on the way home I stopped at one closer to home and guess what, at 8 pm the line was still just as long as it was during lunch. Many items were actually sold out. The supporters basically were asking the servers, just give me anything you have left, we are here in support of you. A Chick-Fil-A in West Nashville, TN was reported to have closed early because they literally ran out of all food.
Make no mistake about this Gay America and those misguided politicians who attacked an individual for his free speech and called him and his restaurant bigoted. Do you hear yourself? Do you people ever look in the mirror? It isn’t just Gay individuals, liberals, Muslims and PC folks that have a right of free speech, guess what, so do Christians. You don’t get to threaten people for their opinions. But of course there were the cowards that called in bomb threats in a feeble attempt to stop the outpouring of support. Guess what, you failed! To the corrupt politicians, you certainly do not get to prevent individuals from opening businesses in your cities. You have the nerve to call others bigoted and make accusations of discrimination. What is it exactly that you think you are doing?As for Friday’s “kiss-in”, the Lonely Conservative is correct, the crowds will be much less, but look for the liberal MSM to make it appear larger than reality. Does anyone really think that a “kiss-in” is going to change minds? Seriously, I don’t care to see hetero’s PDA in a restaurant, what makes you special!
Maybe one of the best titles of a post of the day comes from The Other McCain, I Love The Smell Of #ChickFilA At Noon. It Smells Like. . .Liberty. Amen Brother!
