Rick Perry wore same jacket in anti-gay ad that Heath Ledger wore in Brokeback Mountain
Daily Mail ^ | 12.9.11 | LEON WATSON

Posted on 12/09/2011 1:07:12 PM PST by trumandogz

He was only trying to make a folksy appeal to conservative Christians in Iowa.

And what he had to say was unlikely to cause much controversy with the evangelicals who dominate the Republican Party's caucuses there.

But when Presidential hopeful Rick Perry donned a brown jacket and spoke to the camera for his latest campaign ad he didn't expect to be so widely mocked.

I’m no big fan of Rick Perry, but this alleged ‘controversy’ (what? another one?) is nothing but bullsh*t.

And he once flew in a plane that a drug smuggler once flew in. And..... I heard he even used to go to a place called N-head Rock.
 
While some may get upset and offended at thse lame attempts to smear Gov. Perry, I'm glad they're trying. It makes them look stupid. And very gay, as well
 
This is the best they can do?
 
lololol

Yes, quite trivial, but it is funny that the Daily Mail ran with the story.

There is an underlying hypocrisy to the fact that the same people who claim to be for the normalization of homosexuality to always be the ones using homosexuality as a means of mocking others.

Is the comparison between jackets supposed to mean something?

Looks like a Carhartt jacket I’ve seen in their stores.

Oh BS, Go to any construction site in the winter and you will see 90% of the people there with that kind of jacket. Carhart has many jackets that look like that.

Wait...

An ACTOR trying to look like a cowboy, wears a coat that a REAL cowboy wears...

And someone wants to make a point that the REAL cowboy is copying the ACTOR?

Am I getting that right?

How nuts is that?

So what? Ledger in his homo role was dressed by the costume dept of the film production company, to resemble someone who lives out west and works on a ranch. Whether you like Perry or not,,,he is dressed normally for where he lives.

Are we also supposed to stop wearing boots cause two homo actors* wore those costumes in their mockery of western masculinity?

* Sure i know, i know,, they were only “acting” and supposedly not homos. Of course,,, nevermind that Jimmy Stewart would never have kissed a man for a role, or John Wayne, or Ronald Reagan, or Clint Eastwood, or Errol Flynn, etc etc,,,

Perry has a Carhart on, Broke back has some sheepherders coat plus Perry's ad isn't anti-gay. As a matter of fact is simply states there is something wrong when you can serve openly gay in the military but not openly celebrate Christmas in school.

You gotta stoop pretty low to join this chorus.

Let's see how many people we can get on this awesome thread.

Which shows the danger of the homosexual rights movement. They will steal, corrupt and pervert more and more of our culture if allowed to do so. A jacket once considered a man’s jacket can now symbolize homosexuality. Gestures, clothes, activities, etc… all that once could be considered normal for men or women can be perverted into standing for homosexuality. Thus our culture will be more and more perverted and our children will be under attack by these growing amounts of homosexual symbols used a means of mocking or intimidating them.

People had better start to call a spade a spade and fight back against the perversion of homosexuality. Homosexuality is a corruption of natural human sexuality and is a danger to any culture.

Well, the day is still young. We have a few more hours to go. But, unless something even more inane comes along, this does take the cake.

Hopefully it will get pulled since garbage like this is not why I have Free Republic as my "must read" website.

I agree. Of course, you could go over to the Herman Cain on “Hannity” – 12/8/11 thread. It's just a big written shouting match over there. The site is having a bad day today (or a good one, depending on your perspective).

Well, they both have zippers, and the color is similar.

Of course, no self-respecting gay dude would mistake those two jackets for the “same”.

What a silly article....much ado about nothing.

These jackets are very popular and I’ve seen them in many catalogs & stores. Real cowboys wear them all the time.

This Brit rag is just trying to create controversary.....and the Ad wasn’t anti-gay.

It merely pointed out that it’s now OK for gays to serve openly in our military but Christian children can’t pray in our schools and celebrate the real meaning of Christmas!

Christmas is a celebration of Christ’s Birth not just a ‘holiday’. There are many ‘holidays’ during the year but only one Christmas.........has ‘Christ’ in it.

Good god you are as pathetic as the Paultards and 0bama zombies.

More straight men wear Carhartt than gay men. Carhartt until recently was still made in the US.

This site has really sunk to the bottom of the barrel. I’m beginning to think there is more rational and intelligent discussion at the DUmp than there is here.

Ditto!

Just look at how the word "gay," once meaning happy in a lighthearted way, has been perverted. The word "pride" is undergoing the same metamorphosis--just google "LA pride," "San Diego pride," etc. and see what comes up--believe me, it will not be the Chamber of Commerce site.

So. You have a problem with “this site” mocking and ridiculing a lame attempt to smear Gov. Perry? You’ve been here 10 years. Tell us. Has there ever been a time when FR did not laugh at queers?

I’d post the link to the DUmp where you can find that “rational and intelligent discussion” you long for. But I figure you have it bookmarked.

Yeah, it's a Carhart barn coat, big deal. This is kind of like when Anderson Cooper came up with his little quip about "teabaggers", invoking a homosexual "inside joke" that most normal people didn't get, but homos like Keith Olberman jumped all over to show that they were hip to the joke.

The only people who will pay any attention to this are other homos who actually saw "Brokeback Mountain", which probably includes the author.
