Wingnuts With Businesses, Part One

Well, at least they are contributing to the economy. Unfortunately, they're also contributing to bigotry and stupidity.

Found in my email this morning:
From one Troy Hake, President of Outside Pride, Inc. (garden product company)
It begins...

"I know the vast majority of you will agree with me as all polls indicate. We are the majority, not the minority as the liberal media would lead you to believe."

Beep! Beep! Beep! Conservative happy-phrase "liberal media" spotted. Verbal wanking on the horizon.

"My wife and I sat down to watch television the other night with our children."

The chillllldren!

"Cold Case was on which is normally a fairly enjoyable show to watch; however, the last half hour of the show dealt with a young man who wished he had asked his male friend to come with him (long story short). The show ended with the two men hugging and obvious intimation they had discovered their gay feelings towards each other."

"Obvious intimation." Meaning what, pray tell? Rubbing of trouser weasels or...a Joe Lieberman/George W. Bush style kissy-poo?

"The very next show was Without A Trace The whole last half hour of this show was about two lesbians who were struggling with their feelings of lesbianism. It ended with full acceptance from one father and the two lesbians making out. Yes, they were kissing right at the end of the show on public prime time television. So much for wholesome family television."

OMG! [Faints dead away from shock induced by hot, lesbian imagery.] Define "family," dipshit. For a lesbian family--yes, they do exist--there ain't nothing wrong with a lesbian kiss. And by the way, lots of homo-bigot, good ole boys like yourself, have a closet full of lesbian porn.

Oh. That's the problem, eh? Seeing that girl on girl action made you all tight in the crotch, right there on the couch, surrounded by The Chillldren.

"Now, I am NOT trying to bash homosexuals and I am not a bigot; however, I feel homosexuality is morally wrong and should not be "promoted" as what is the norm for society."

Ever notice how Simon Cowell of "American Idol" begins his nastiest screes by saying, "I don't mean to be rude, but..."?

For funsies, let's run Mr. Hake's comment through a time machine, back a few decades. "Now, I am NOT trying to bash Blacks and I am not a bigot; however, I feel racial intermarriage is morally wrong and should not be 'promoted' as what is the norm for society." Hmmm.

"Text books are being rewritten as I am writing this to "highlight" every homosexual who has made a contribution to society."

OMG! Gays in history. Next thing you know they'll be teaching children that Blacks, Hispanics and other minorities made a contribution to society. The outrage. What's a White, Christian, bigot to do? [/snark]

"History is being rewritten to promote homosexuality and prime time television is doing its best to make homosexuality a "normal" behavior."

We should only rewrite history to conform to a White, Christian bigot point of view. [/snark]

"If homosexuality was the norm, civilization would have ceased to exist thousands of years ago. Procreation takes a man and a woman. There was Adam and then there was Eve, not Adam and Steve."

Really? Then who created Steve? Who created homosexuals? The devil? (Beep, wrong. Sorry, but according to your Bible, God is the only one who can create.)

Homosexuality has been around as long as there have been humans. (And many species of animals, for that matter.) To date, even with all them pesky gays and lesbians sharing oxygen with us heteros, the human race is populating the planet at a rapid rate.

"There are literally tens of thousand of you reading this email right now."

In other words, you're a spammer.

Mr. Hake asked that I go to CBS.com, click on the feedback button at the bottom of the page and make my opinion known. So I did just that and told CBS to keep up the good work.
