WARNING: THE FOLLOWING CONTAINS PROFANE LANGUAGE THAT SOME MAY FIND OFFENSIVE. READER DISCRETION IS ADVISED.
The folks at HillBuzz.org dropped a major bombshell this morning. Theyre reporting that they have what they consider to be unimpeachable sources who say that Illinois Republican Party Chairman Pat Brady referred to the HillBuzz.org writers as a bunch of #### ####. That exact slur was reportedly uttered by Pat Brady obviously in the presence of others just this weekend.
For the record, its no secret that the writers at HillBuzz are gay men. They are quite honest about that and in fact they make reference to their lifestyle quite regularly in their writing. So at least they are honest about it unlike some others high-up in the Illinois GOP hierarchy and unlike at least a couple of candidates running statewide right now on the GOP ticket. Pat Brady clearly has no problem with those gay men. It appears that Bradys hatred and anger only come out when its gay men exposing his lack of leadership.
Pat Brady is no doubt upset that HillBuzzs dogged coverage of a Cook County Republican Party sex-related scandal (that turned into a cover-up scandal) eventually got legs. The Huffington Post for example picked up on the story and published its own recap last week. And then on Friday some Democrat women held a press conference in Chicago to try and take full political advantage. Since few normal people know who Pat Brady is, the Democrats tried to tie-in GOP gubernatorial nominee Bill Brady. That was probably an unfair stretch, but they did it anyway. NBC-5 Chicago weighed in with coverage.
The Illinois Republican Party Snatching DEFAET from the Jaws of VICTORY!!
Make that DEFEAT from the Jaws of VICTORY!
My bad. I thought the offensive word was the F bomb. ;-)
Having lived in the San Francisco Bay Area for 40 years I have to ask: what is wrong with the word faggot? It is used all the time in the Gay capitol of the West.
Pat and Nellybelle.....both straight.
He spoke the truth. What’s the problem?
Illinois has a Republican Party? Who’d have known?
At least he didn’t call them tea baggers.
Well are they?
If they are then when did a citizen speaking the truth in a Nation that values and protects free speech become a crime?
Animals and 'progressives' are dangerous when they're scared.
ya the old shoot yourself in the foot deal...what a fail.
ya the old shoot yourself in the foot deal...what a fail.
That the punishment doesn’t fit the “crime” doesn’t seem to ever enter into these name calling snits.
Why should a person lose a job over a non-violent word?
I mean, really? Is there a legitimate reason for this?
Unimpeachable sources? In DC....hahahahahahahaha
Did anyone notice if this bunch share membership with JOURNOLIST?
Bet they don't ~ I'd suggest they go complain about being excluded from exclusive Leftwingtard trash sites actually.
And I care why? I just point at them and laugh anymore. I shouldn't really; their mental illness is no laughing matter; but I can't help myself.
Oh Good Lord....DROP IT.
The hypocritical, rank, stink to high heaven dems say and do EVERYTHING corrupt, manipulative, dishonest, profane and get away with it.
I say WE IGNORE THIS JUST LIKE THEY DO.
Let the infant marxists “jounolists” wack jobs *gasp* and feign *horror* at this..let them faint with shock...let their delicate little hothouse sensibilities cry all over this big bad statement.
Because we know their weedle bitty pure liberal delusional selves never have anything but humane, bright and shiny thoughts and intentions for the wonderful world they want to help bestow on the rest of humanity, right?
Because they are enlightened...they are so wise—and kind-and pure—and oh yeah most important..so HIP...and they hang with Joy Behar and actors and junk...
homosexuals call themselves this all the time.
school kids use the same term.
Brad should fight and come out with support for traditional marriage and stopping this social RINO nonsense.
Okey dokey then. HillBuz.org are proudly gay guys/gals. What is the skinny on republicannewswatch.com then, eh?
Being that truthful is simply unacceptable!
How so? I dare say he's probably got more people cheering him for speaking his mind that there are homos calling for his resignation. Republicans need to do more of this...stand up and resist the steady push to normalize a perverted, immoral, vile, disease-spreading lifestyle choice.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
Yeah, only Progressives have the right to call Tea Party folks tea baggers and not be called out by the Obama media...I’m sorry main street media.
Lets make jokes while an idiot goes all out to cause us that election.
A known bunch of left wing homosexuals btw...
reporting that they have what they consider to be unimpeachable sources
This is the State version of JournoList.
Awwww. Poor polymorphously perverse progressives. Let’s throw them a pity party. Awwwwww. Did jour wittle feewings get huwt? Did somone viowate your civiwl wights by cawing you a name other than “heroic community organizer” or “civil rights advocate?”
No, only if it’s viewed as “offensive” to some precious group.
They eat cigarettes?
Perhaps it WAS a faggot, but now it's just HOT WOOD, entendre intended.
Damn shame, when stating the truth is grounds for dismissal.
I still haven’t found a Constitutional right to not be offended.
“At least he didnt call them tea baggers.”
That is exactly what he should say to any reporter who questions him about the incident. “I definitely didn’t call them tea baggers as you (mr. reporter) and the slime over at hillbuzz have referred to me and my constituents.”
I thought I was very savvy (I’m a good girl, but thought I was well aware of lots of gutter talk and goings-on).
You just threw in ANOTHER term I’ve never heard.
I never heard of “tea-bagger/ing” until last year, either.
I’m still being steadily corrupted after all these years.
Here in Boston we had a talk show host who referred to a candidate for governor as a “fat lesbian”. She was fat. She was a proud lesbian but they ran him out of town anyway.
Rahm Emmanuel may be orchestrating a re-run of the past.
He ran ads against McSweeney (for Bean) that started by raising a minor issue and constantly repeating “McSweeney, out of the mainstream.” McSweeney (his campaign manager) did not respond although he had the money. He probably figured it was minor.
The ads pounded away non-stop “Out of the mainstream”.
Then in the final week the ads changed to “extremist”. McSweeney had not built his own image. So Rahm built it for him. McSweeney was toast.
Currently, Pat Brady (and unelected self-appointed State Central Committee) have not built an image for the IL GOP. It is a confusing and fuzzy mixture of corruption, cronyism, sex scandal, anti-corruption, tea party, etc, etc.
So, since Brady has not built an image for the GOP, Rahm (and friends) will fill the vacuum.
Brady has not yet found the backbone (and other anatomy) to exclude the corrupt from the party and limit the party exclusively to the non-corrupt.
Okay, let’s do.
It’s not a slur if it true.
I say we bring back use of words like “faggot” and “queer”. That is the only honest way of referring to people who engage in homosexual behavior, because it is the only way to confer properly the inherent disgust. Allowing the Left to sanitize certain behaviors and peoples, removing words from the language and coopting positive words (”gay”), is an Orwellian method of shaping thought. If a word for a concept is removed from the language, it makes it more difficult to express or even form the concept. Likewise, if you outlaw all terms for a behavior that have negative connotations, you remove the ability to express disapproval and disgust with the behavior, making resistance to its spread more difficult.
Tie a string around it, set it afire and you'll have a flaming faggot.
No, he should have said “sodomites”...;-)
