"Focus On The Family: Anti-Bullying Efforts Are A Gay Front."
Does your kid beat up pansies at school? No? Then he's probably a homo! According to Focus on the Family, birthplace of most of America's insane bullshit, anti-bullying campaigns in schools are just a front for the Homosexual Menace. "We feel more and more that activists are being deceptive in using anti-bullying rhetoric to introduce their viewpoints, while the viewpoint of Christian students and parents are increasingly belittled," FotF's Candi Cushman told the Denver Post.
See, it works this way: bullies tend to pick out kids who are different. And gays are different. Being gay is wrong, so -- it just stands to reason -- that in this case the bully is right. The bully's only real crime is in being a jerk about it. Really though, Little Lord Fauntleroy there was just asking for it by being all gay and stuff. If he'd just knock off being a six-year-old flamer, everything would be cool. But with anti-bullying campaigns, the bully's God-given right to be an asshole is abridged and, really, is that the message we want to send to our kids?
The Homosexual Menace was, of course, less than silent on this. "In terms of LGBT youth, we certainly hope that Focus on the Family agrees that the current environment in which nearly 9 out of 10 LGBT students experience harassment each year in school is simply unacceptable," said Eliza Byard of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN). "But we won't hold our breath."
Yeah, good luck holding your breath while little Bruno's slapping the shit out of you anyway. That's Focus on the Family, folks, telling Americans it's OK to be pricks since 1977. (Talking Points Memo)
-Pretty much the same guy-
After Glenn Beck's big "White-People-are-Sad" rally at the Lincoln Memorial this weekend, people are wondering what he would've been like if he'd been around when Martin Luther King jr. gave his "I Have a Dream" speech. Turns out, it's not all that hard to figure out. Political cartoonist David Fitzsimmons demonstrates:

"Robert Gibbs Accuses Gretchen Carlson Of Playing 'Political Games'."
C'mon Gibbs. She's FOX's pretty and cheerful morning imbecile. Political games? I think she'd have trouble mastering Chutes and Ladders. (Mediaite, with video)
