This week my cup runeth over with Dickheads (and not the good kind). I considered preempting my scheduled exposure of the moronic comments about Don’t Ask Don’t Tell made by 2012 Republican presidential pretender Haley Barbour, in order to write about the brutal, horrific, inhumane and plain disgusting story that Rolling Stone broke yesterday about the US Army in Afghanistan. But I’ve decided to leave that story to be told by the media, and will put my thoughts into one of my Mini Fred Op-Eds in the near future. I was so violently nauseous with upset over that story, that I need a few days to get my thoughts in order.
So, for now, let’s talk about someone who I look forward to speaking about as the 2012 election draws closer, former governor of Mississippi and current governor of racial, bigoted rhetoric, Haley Barbour (R-MS). Everybody keeps talking about how intelligent Haley Barbour is. However, even if I were able to ignore his ridiculous inbred-sounding accent, it’s pretty impossible to consider a man that says some of the things that he says in this interview with the equally revolting Bryan Fischer, anything but a politically pandering piece of poop.
When asked about whether or not he would reinstate Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, Barbour says:
‘When you’re under fire and people are living and dying over split-second decision, you don’t need any kind of amorous mindset that can effect saving people’s lives and killing the bad guys.’
The lack of faith that Republicans seem to have in poor old heterosexual men to be able to fend for themselves when the big bad gay men give them unwanted advances, is comical. My mother said it best a few weeks ago when she said: ‘The thing that scares men about homosexuality the most is the fact that, for the first time in history, they may have to deal with same type of the unwelcome sexual advances that we (women) have had to endure for centuries.’
I couldn’t agree more, obviously, and for anyone to attempt to slice and dice the reasoning behind the way Republicans like Haley Barbour view homosexuals as anything other than good old fashioned bigoted discrimination, is laughable. Call Haley Barbour for what he truly is: a racist, homophobic, dickhead.
Another highlight of the interview included Barbour’s ignorant statement in which is he says ‘It’s silly to think we have prostitution in MS.’
Right, because Mississippi isn’t the poorest state in the union or anything. Anyway, watch the video for yourself.
