FULL TITLE: Houston Mayor Annise Parker calls Phil Robertson a 'redneck wingnut' whose views are 'completely irrelevant'
I have never watched Duck Dynasty, so I dont think about it much at all, Parker responded. Ive been a gay community activist since the mid-70s.

Interesting how the FReepers who continually rip on NYers and NJites for their liberal politicos somehow fail to rip on all Texans for degenerate elected officials like Annise Parker.
Houston, we have a problem...named Annise.
I would expect this kind of bull**** to spew from the mouth of a Houston “mayor”. Texas needs to cut that sewer loose.
Battle lines are slowly being drawn for the future civil war....the left will lose badly...
ah words of wisdom from another know nothing leftie
seems to me they do a pretty good job of it . and of course NY and NJ have so many more to rip
I’ll bet I could spend 15 minutes on bing and find a statement of hers decrying the coarseness of American political debate.
I’d say what she/he? has to say is completely irrelevant.
If she doesn't have callouses on her elbows, I'd be very surprised.
I never even heard of Anus Parker until I read this FR thread.
I don’t think that rednecks give much weight to the opinion of an aging rug muncher like Annise.
At least she didn’t stoop to name calling.
Pray America is Waking
From Wikipedia: “Parker and her domestic partner, Kathy Hubbard, have been together since 1990.”
Really? it is in the big cities there but it does not permeate out of there and at vote time Texas is a solid RED (I hate that term) State.
BTW, I am a NY State Resident and I would get out in a NY minute if it wasn't for my wife's need to be close to her family....
Would any Texas Freeper care to to explain how Houston elects this as it’s mayor? I thought only Austin was nutso?
Yet somehow “redneck” is neither racist nor offensive
How many non whites are ever referred to as “rednecks”?
A redneck wingnut with three times her IQ.
Hey Annise, I was of the belief lesbians were supposed to be tolerant and above name-calling.
Big US cities all suffer the same malady regardless of the state they're in, apparently.
Left-wing nutbag politicians are the norm for large Texas cities.
Because he shares the viewpoint of the Bible believing Christians who live in your city and sure didn’t vote for you?
Houston, we have a problem...
Most conservatives fled to the suburbs long ago. The major cities all have very liberal Democrat mayors, not just Austin but Houston, Dallas and San Antonio too.
“Left-wing nutbag politicians are the norm for large Texas cities.”
Because they wouldn’t succeed and get power anywhere else.
Houston proper is mostly minority.
Houston has the biggest, most elaborate abortuary in the world.
So many homosexuals in power... cannot be a coincidence. Just can’t.
All big cities are lefty. Doesn’t matter where they are. Just like all public schools are crap, no matter where they are located. Your local schools are not different, that would be wishful thinking.
Reminds me of this quote from the Lutheran Satire-
‘”I’m disgusted by Phil Robertson’s views on sexuality,” says actor currently filming new Roman Polanski movie.’
Don't mess with Texas...
Ya know, if it were not for Houston, San Antonio, Dallas and Austin, Texas would be 100 percent conservative..
In CA, we've understood that for years...
And I call her a dimocrat cow. So what.
What a queer answer Annise Parker has.
“Interesting how the FReepers who continually rip on NYers and NJites for their liberal politicos somehow fail to rip on all Texans for degenerate elected officials like Annise Parker.”
Well, stand back, because here is one born and bred Texan who will call her the worthless scrunt that she is. I don’t discriminate based upon geography.
“Would any Texas Freeper care to to explain how Houston elects this as its mayor? I thought only Austin was nutso?”
Aside from that fact, I don’t personally consider Houston to be part of Texas. It’s a strange place down in the swamps between us and Louisiana. It’s rumored that they have a football team. Now, Dallas which I do consider part of the Texas, is getting pretty bad having now gotten the reputation of being the San Francisco of the Southwest.
She’d better hope her car never breaks down Ouachita Parish, Louisiana.
Say, isn’t she Houstons first Lesbian Mayor?
So, I googled the ostensible quote from the Houston mayor, and not a single article mentions WHERE or WHEN or to WHOM this statement was made or the context, nor do ANY of them provide any attribution.
In fact, there are just a few hits on the quote and they pretty much seem to all be in a circular echo chamber of couple dozen 4th tier web sites.
It may be true, but at this point it looks apocryphal.
Oops. Just found the attribution:
Houston Mayor :
Ive been a gay community activist since the mid-70s. What some redneck wingnut has to say about the GLBT community is completely irrelevant.
We have been called Wing Nuts since some clever by half invented the term during the Clinton Administration I believe. It could have been longer ago than that.
Turn about is fair play. How about the opposite, the left wing? I’m glad you asked. The Nutwing of course.
Sure glad they don't do that with CA~
