What the F have I said about the AFA being a bunch of hypocritical douchnozzles that lie to their followers?Â Man this is getting old.Â Today in my inbox comes the “OMG if we pass HOMO-hate crimes legislation, alls our preachers will go to jail for sayin’ BIBLE things about the fags and dykes!”.Â Okay, so they didn’t say it exactly like that, but that is CLEARLY the intent.Â Go on – read it for yourself:
Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) says under the legislation, pastors, rabbis, or imams could be charged with encouraging or inducing a “hate crime” if they preach against homosexuality.
Yeah well Representative Gohmert, you’re an idiot if you don’t know the difference between free speech and a hate crime.Â Let’s see.Â Right wing idiots like Sarah Palin calling Obama a terrorist?Â Free speech.Â Right wing idiots that support the “tea party protest” and call Obama the N-word?Â Free speech.Â Chaining James Byrd, Jr to the back of your pickup truck and driving it until the man is not only dead, but severely dismembered?Â That’s a hate crime.Â Oh, and Congressment Gohmert – I would expect you to know the difference, since the Byrd incident happened in a Congressional district next to your own!!!!
The killing of James Byrd, Jr – just like the killing of Matthew Shepard, is a hate crime.Â Except in the United States, you can kill a “fag” and not have to worry about Federal hate crimes legislation because of idiots like the esteemed Representative Gohmert and the lies spread by the AFA.
When will Republicans and right-wing preachers stop lying?Â Maybe we should start a “lie” calendar, much like the “It’s been X days since our last accident”.
I think this will count as ProudLiberal’s first “Republican Lie of the Day” post!
