Quote Of The Day – Gary Cass

“The Southern Poverty Law Center has utterly discredited themselves by this provocative attack on organizations that promote traditional family values. Labeling mainstream conservative organizations as ‘Hate groups’ is defamatory and is simply an intimidation tactic. We call on Congress to cut off their funding. Defend Christians.Org will work to form a coalition of organizations to lobby Congress to withhold funds from SPLC. We will also demand Congress restrict Federal law enforcement from relying on the biased SPLC reports. The SPLC has been reduced to a far left propaganda organization that uses hype and hysteria to enrich a few liberal attorneys at taxpayer expense and has long out lived its usefulness.” – Gary Cass of the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission, which was already on the hate groups list.

Does anybody know how much federal money the SPLC actually gets? Their Wikipedia page doesn’t appear to mention such a thing.

UPDATE: Thought so! Readers point out the the SPLC does NOT get any government funding. Good luck with that call to Congress, dumbass. You can let Mr. Cass know of his error: 954-551-9770.

Quote Of The Day II -Jimmy McMillan

“I would love to put on my website that the Board of Elections can suck my dick, I would love to do that, but I got little children going to my website, I can’t do it, the motherfuckers. I would love to, before every one of them go to bed at night, suckin’ my damn dick. That’s what I’d love to put on my website. Every fuckin’ one of them, you know.” – Rent Is Too Damn High gubernatorial candidate Jimmy McMillian, who is suing New York for 0M because they left the word “damn” off his ballot line.

Quote Of The Day – David Frum

“Halloween is overwhelmingly an adult holiday. This year, for example, Americans spent an estimated 0 million on costumes for children, billion on costumes for adults. Where did that adult dress-up party begin? As best we can tell: in San Francisco’s Castro neighborhood. In the 1970s, that neighborhood emerged as the heart of a new home-owning, bourgeois, coupled gay community. A local variety store had long sponsored a Halloween street festival for kids. In the 1970s, the street festival transitioned into an adult party of lavish costumed theatricality. The ‘Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence’ — a troupe of transvestite nuns — got their start here.

“The Castro Halloween party spread to other gay neighborhoods in the 1980s: Greenwich Village, West Hollywood, Key West, Florida. In 1994, University of Florida anthropologist Jerry Kugelmass published a book on the new trend, Masked Culture, describing Halloween as an emerging gay ‘high holiday.’ And after a while — the straights imitated. From the spread of disco in the 1970s — to the habit of paying money for sparkling waters such as Perrier — culminating in Halloween, gays have incubated and developed major cultural trends. Straights adopt, and then ungratefully forget whom they are adopting from.” – Conservative columnist David Frum, writing for CNN.com

Quote Of The Day – Chris Robinson

“As a band we’ve been trying to string together these moments, the kind of moments I’ve had as a music fan that have blown my mind. That’s not happening when you’re texting or checking your fucking fantasy league stats. I personally think you should be too high to operate a machine at our concerts.” – Black Crowes frontman Chris Robinson, whose band has joined a growing movement to ban the use of cell phones and digital cameras at their concerts.

Also onboard are Wilco, White Stripes, and Natalie Merchant, the last of whom recently dissed the army of raised cameras facing her, saying, “I’m right here. This is live. This is where the show is.” About one-third of the audience at the Scissor Sisters concert I attended last month seemed to be recording the show for YouTube, making me wonder about the diminished enjoyment resulting from such a conscious removal of oneself from “the moment.”

Quote Of The Day – Emma Ruby-Sachs

“The big question is, does this bold move save the Log Cabin Republicans? Right now, the House has passed the repeal of DADT and is waiting for the Senate to get up and do the same. The only problem is, Republican opposition to the measure is permanently stalling all efforts. In response, the Log Cabin Republicans spend a lot of time on their website criticizing Obama for his broken promise to repeal DADT. Excuse me? Did any of you Log Cabin Republicans vote for Obama?

“Didn’t think so. In fact, chances are, there are many gay Republicans who voted for representatives that served their economic interests and not their equality interests. Many of them likely voted for Republicans who opposed Obama in his push to repeal DADT. Your own website commits to electing Republicans for Congress. So, if you wanted Obama to be more progressive on gay rights, you should have helped him win more support in Congress and the Senate. It’s an easy equation. Obama is, by all accounts, gutless when it comes to equality measures, but he certainly is going to do more than any Republican candidate in office.

“If you think this comment on Log Cabin Republicans is unfair, here is a challenge to you: get newly reformed hard right-wing Republican Senator Scott Brown to commit to voting for the repeal of DADT and I will withdraw all comments about your anti-equality effects. If you want to work within the party to change the party, we need to see some evidence of the effectiveness of that approach. Otherwise, despite your legal win — a well-deserved legal win — you are still an affront to all equality seeking groups.” – Emma Ruby-Sachs, writing for the Huffington Post.

Quote Of The Day – Ana Matronic

“Mum said, ‘We can’t get back together because dad is gay.’ It wasn’t said in a brutal or shocking way. Although I was young, I knew dad now felt about men the way that he had once felt about my mother. Basically, I understood this meant they’d never be together – and at six, that sucked.

“I may have chosen that path subconsciously, but I didn’t think, ‘Right, life mission: I’m going to understand what it’s like to be a gay man. I’ve always been a very flamboyant person and I think I would have ended up there anyway. I was born and raised in a very artistic household. I went to drama classes at school. My mother is an incredibly artistic woman. I think that regardless of whether or not my father was gay, I would have sought out creatively passionate people.” – Scissor Sisters vocalist Ana Matronic, discussing her late gay father, who died of AIDS when she was a teenager.

Gay Designer Michael Smith Taints Obama’s Oval Office With Stolen MLK Quote

While fancypants interior decorator Michael Smith won't say how much he spent redesigning (or anything else about) Barack Obama's Oval Office makeover, maybe he should reveal where he looked for historical facts. Because that quote he's got laid in the carpet? The one attributed to Martin Luther King Jr.? It's kinda doesn't belong to MLK.

Quote Of The Day – David Frum

“What is happening to the GOP? First our elected officials tire of bashing gays and now our pundits? Perhaps Republicans are beginning to see the writing on the wall. Public opinion is changing rapidly in favor of gay marriage rights. In just 10 years gay marriage has become legal in 10 countries, 5 U.S. States and the District of Columbia. A just released CNN poll found half of all U.S. citizens now support gay marriage and Columbia researcher Suzanne Goldberg reported on CNN that ‘research indicates younger people are beginning to see sexual orientation as a benign variation”. Even the Tea Party has generally sat on the sideline on social issues, preferring to focus on matters of economics and less government.

“The religious right may be having a conniption, but younger Republicans increasingly appear to believe that opposing gay equality is inconsistent with a belief in increased liberty and smaller government. Although the religious right will continue to be a strong presence in the GOP for years to come, changing demographics are not on the side of anti-gay forces and the GOP appears to be awakening to this reality.” – Conservative columnist David Frum, in an essay titled GOP Drops Fight Against Gay Rights.

The Freepers, of course, have already labeled their erstwhile hero a traitor. And as always in Freepistan, all things LGBT boil down to buttsecks.

-”Frum is all excited about our children being taught that anal sex is normal and natural. How will Frum feel when his son is in a hospital at age 35 or 40, unable to hold his own feces in anymore? Something for the GOP parents to look forward to I guess.”
-”Let’s not forget the painful hemorrhoids requiring painful surgery leading up to the rectal prolapse, the genital warts, and the genital, oral or anal cancers.”
