Put It In Context, Part 2

(Before anyone asks, yes, I will address the repartee between Gov. Jan Brewer and President Obama – just not right now. I’m giving Obama the opportunity to respond.)

As I mentioned in the last post, I have been accused of doing nothing but complaining about the mean things that liberals say. Also, as I mentioned, the person who made that accusation has never read anything I’ve written calling out those on the right that I disagree with (that would include George W. Bush and Joe Arpaio). So, without further ado, here is the promised outing.

Meet Jeffrey Don Davis.

In Todd Starnes’ report on the incident at Shawano High School in Wisconsin, there were three or four out of a few hundred who posted genuinely hateful comments. This guy led the pack. He was good enough to make his profile picture available to the public on Facebook. He apparently went to technical school at Texas State Technical College and studied computer networking. He also apparently has no idea that Sarah Palin vetoed a very popular bill as soon as she took office in Alaska – the bill that would have stripped same-sex partners of state employees of any and all benefits. I say that because he has her listed as one of the people who inspire him. He lists several other people who wouldn’t agree with what he does. Here is a sampling of his drivel:

“Joe Distefano But it’s ok for a perverted hate pig like you to express your hatred of decent people who do not want to be exposed to your disgusting behavior. As for expressing our beliefs in GOD, GOD himself judged homosexuals and found them to be severly lacking.”

“Dawn Dickinson I have news for you Dawg, some sex change bulld*ke does not a man make.”

“Joe Distefano I speak my anti-pervert opinions in public and the only demeted ****** who ever dared to criticize me spent the night in the hospital. Opposition to sexual perversion (including homosexuality) in public is nothing more than good taste and common decency.”

“Joe Distefano Yes homosexuality is a perversion just like pedophilia, bestiality, incest, coprophagia, necrophilia, etc. Actually I had a pervert call me a bigot for opposing homosexuality, I spit in his face, he swung at me and I kicked the **** out of him. Once again you POS, anytime you want to see a bigot, just look in the mirror.”

“Joe Distefano Once again idiot, don’t try speaking for your betters, you have more than enough trouble speaking for yourself. Jesus’ father, GOD sentence homoNazis to death.”

“Jeff Taylor I”ll bet you’re mighty macho when another ****** takes your boyfriend to the bathhouse and leaves you in your mother’s basement.”

“Chris Green I take your word that you’re a faggy-behind-a-keyboard.”

“Jeff Taylor If you want to hit on that pervert, buttboy, take it somewhere that decent people don’t have to see it. In typical fag fashion you give up and accuse me of being a fag too. At least your STDs still allow you to think enough that you realize that decent people consider accusations of homosexuality to be insulting.”

“Chad Jonathan Walls As compared to your peach fuzz? Do you keep those cats around to lick cream off your face or do you keep them around to molest. After all, homosexuality is a perversion just like bestiality.”

“Jeff Taylor Go **** yourself instead of the little boys your chase after you demented stool sample.”

“Conrad Shull while an animal like you seeks to put your filthy hands in the pants of little boys. NAMBLA is a homosexual org.”

“The truly intolerant bigots infesting America are homoNazis. I don’t ask for their tolerance. They will tolerate my opinion whether they want to or not and that’s a rule that I personally enforce.”

“Michael Fitzpatrick I don’t ask old faqqots like you to tolerate me. You will tolerate me whether you like it or not.”

THAT, liberals, is hatred. You cannot reason with a person who will threaten you like this. Most of the others engaged me in honest, civil conversation – they asked questions that weren’t staged as thinly-veiled challenges and respected my right to disagree, as I respected theirs. But when you behave like this, whether you’re a religious nutcase on par with Fred Phelps or you’re a liberal claiming that you don’t have to tolerate what you classify as hatred (usually things far milder than this guy and the two who agreed with him), you invalidate your own argument. You make yourself a hypocrite with what Mr. Davis said just as surely as you would by saying, “you anti-gay collaborators need to remember what was done to the Nazi collaborators – they had their heads shaved, their throats slit, and their bodies hung from lampposts.”

In short, here is my belief: Jesus never touched on homosexuality. He did, however, tell us how we should behave. Nowhere in scripture did He give us any command to be belligerent, get in people’s faces, spit on people, judge them, hate them, or spark a fight and later claim you were defending yourself.

I don’t issue threats. I don’t need to. All I will say is that the bible also does tell us to be wise, and while we are to love mercy, we are also to obey justice. If you do wrong and I catch you, I will act appropriately. It is reprehensible that you would try to claim that your religion gives you the right to behave as if there are no rules. You’re an embarrassment to conservatives and the biggest single reason why I find it so difficult to talk to liberals.

  1. I had no idea Sarah Palin vetoed a bill that stripped same sex couples of benefits. Funny how leftists want that fact hidden. I am appalled by Jeffrey Don Davis and his kind. Ugh.

  2. She sure did, Jen. It was her very first act as governor. What’s more, the bill passed overwhelmingly with the very same voting constituency that put her in office in the first place. I think that took a lot of guts and it is one of the reasons that I have very little patience with gays and lesbians who claim that Sarah Palin hates gay people.

    I’m pretty sure our friend Mr. Davis doesn’t know that, either.

  3. Talking with many liberals is actually just like talking with far-Right reactionary nuts. They both have the same way of shouting over everything you try to say, ignoring everything you say that makes sense, basing their views on feelings, speaking as if the things they believe are obvious when they clearly aren’t.

    Nothing infuriates those in either camp more than being told they sound just like those in the other. But they do. They really are Tweedledum and Tweedle-dumber.

  4. Oh, how stupid of me.. I put my name in the e-mail address field and my e-mail address in the name field. Mel…. can you please delete the above comment (I would do it myself but don’t see a way) and keep this one instead?

    I guess I am probably that commenter on your youtube video who accused you of one-sidedness. Fair enough, I only learned about your existence through the Ethan Sabo debacle on advocate.com and have not read your years’ worth of posts on here, so I was wrong to state that you only call out liberal and more specifically gay liberal hate/ignorance.

    I don’t really know…. I’ve seen nauseating comments like this one from conservatives and I’ve seen nauseating posts by gays. Maybe it’s the websites that I frequent or maybe it’s my own bias but it seems like the virulently anti-gay crazies form a more substantial minority among conservatives and Christians than the virulently anti-conservative anti-Christian crazies form among liberals or gays. If we stick to those who actually have some sort of power or voice in the media (political leaders, religious leaders, leaders of lobby groups/non-profit organizations, or even prominent bloggers or social media sites) rather than comments from random people on advocate.com or foxnews.com who would probably pee their pants and run if faced with one of the subjects of their spittle flecked keyboard tirades, MY GUESS is that the anti-gay crazies and liars still outnumber the anti-conservative/Christian crazies and liars, by a fair margin.

    Also, I note that you rightfully characterize Jeffrey Don Davis as his own person, with no other conservative or Christian being responsible for the words or actions of Jeffrey Don Davis, it’s just “gay liberals” that are hateful. My opinion, your wordings seem to be more general when it is liberals doing the hating… just saying.

  5. Done.

    I will say this about the gay leftists who hate me: other gay leftists refuse to call them out or come to my defense. The only time any gay leftist ever came to my defense was when another called me a “quisling c**t” and the woman who responded (rightly) called the comment sexist. The only reason I paint liberals broadly is because that has been my experience after years (quite literally, I have been trying for YEARS) of trying to have a civil debate on certain subjects.

  6. My news director once told me that being a gay conservative was an oxymoron. I moved on. He’s still the ND at a backwater TV station in NE Missouri. Unless of course that he has moved on or come out. Communication travels slowly from that part of the world, but I digress. Neither Bill, nor I believe that gay marriage is an answer to anything other than an increase in some enterprising divorce lawyer’s wallet. Neither of us is in favor of forcing anyone to recognize our defacto situation. But try to deny either of us our rightful claim to each other’s property/residue upon our deaths and you’ll be fightin’ a couple of well-armed and well educated faggots.

  7. I do not feel that everything has to be chgnead in order to support civil actions. Burt and Ernie are puppets as it has been stated by Sesame Street. Thiey are designed for children to see them as non descript. There is no relationship or connection to race, color or creed. They are perceived as male and that is their only human characteristic. There is no reason to expand on their character. The show, Sesame Street, was created approximately 40 years ago and it has maintained a clear, nonbias , non controversial image withstanding critical issues in society. It is timeless. I feel we should help it remain as non bias as it has always been without changing these two characters. Other characters may be created if the show feels the need. They are masterful at teaching children values and respect for all people. Keep up the good work Sesame Street.
