Posted on 11/28/2011 8:05:14 PM PST by SmithL
The Tennessee Tea Party is speaking out about Representative Frank tonight and their view is sparking some controversy. After hearing he's retiring, the Tennessee Tea Party tweeted "Good riddance, you perverted sodomite POS!!!"
"I am appalled," says the Tea Party Nation's Judson Phillips. "This statement does nothing to advance the goals of the Tea Party movement and goes a long way towards offending people we need to be involved. Barney Frank is the worst congressman in the last century, but dumb comments like that tweet do not help our cause."
A spokesperson with the Tennessee Tea Party told FOX17 NEWS via phone tonight "If people think we've gone too far, it's Barney Frank that's gone too far."
The Tennessee Equality Project released a statement tonight, saying "The Tennessee Equality Project condemns the comments made by the Tennessee Tea Party about Congressman Barney Frank. Name-calling and bigotry have no place in our public debates. Americans can disagree without denying one another's humanity. Attacking an accomplished public official based on sexual orientation or gender identity shows the need for an open discussion about discrimination. If adults don't set a good example, we can't expect to address issues like bullying in our schools or discrimination on the job. TEP is ready to have an adult discussion with the people of Tennessee."
In 1987, Frank became the first congressman to voluntarily admit he is a homosexual.
So does bawney’s butt!
Ease up, you Volunteers!
Ol’ Barney just wanted to be able to spend more time with the wife and kids.
(Oh, wait a minute.)
Judson Phillips is always in surrender mode. This is the same idiot who called for a more “humane” GOP approach on immigration, and denounced SB1070. He represents NO ONE.
Wai....wut? I don’t see a problem, here.
Judson Phillips is a leftist Tea Party infiltrator. We need to be aware of him.
"I am appalled," says the Tea Party Nation's Judson Phillips.
I am also appalled.
Just because Mr. Frank's unusual sexual procedures may sometimes involve coming in contact with POSs (plural) does not imply that he is a POS. That is not logical.
Don’t tell me. The Tennessee Equality Project is a “gay rights” group. Right?
The media sure like to pretend that there is a “The TEA Party” as if there one organization.
BTW, Barney is a perverted sodomite, why is that controversial?
REP. Frank is a horrible human being. Calling him names isn't going to help us, however.
Barney Frank can go to hell. His leftist-statism has done innumerable damage to America.
“I am appalled,” says the Tea Party Nation’s Judson Phillips.
Hey Judson. I am appalled at YOUR comment. It does nothing to advance the goals of the Tea Party movement and goes a long way towards offending conservatives we need to be involved. Barney Frank is a homosexual who allowed a male prostitution ring to be run out of his congressional offices. Calling out his sick perverted behavior that is a disgrace to our nation does help our cause. Being afraid to do it only hurts our cause.
“The Tennessee Equality Project”
I wondered what the Tennessee Equality Project consist of.
I did a search and found that it is a queer advocacy group.
What part of “perverted sodomite POS” does he find objectionable?
Can you say, “agent provacateur”?
“Americans can disagree without denying one another’s humanity.”
Barney has denied and violated his own humanity for his entire adult life.
In the process,he has offended God and at least 90 percent of the population of America.
Mr Phillips wants me to have some empathy for the old deviate?
...if by voluntarily you mean being exposed for having a male prostitute as your live in boyfriend/aide/driver.
Barney Frank isn’t a human being; he sold out humanity a long, long time ago.
