    Barney Frank has a razor sharp wit and tongue--I'm glad he is on our side! I was ambivalent about his retirement--I wanted for him to be able to enjoy his golden years with his significant other, but I am so glad that he hasn't put his brain and tongue out to pasture...

    ...Frank said the fact that the [Log Cabin] group supports people like Ryan, who "are calling us fewer names and are willing to talk to some of us," is precisely why the Uncle Tom term comes to mind.

    "It is this willingness to acquiesce in a subordinate status as long as the masters are kinder in tone, although [not] in substance, that emulates Uncle Tom," he said.

    The Democratic lawmaker went on to list all the anti-LGBT votes Ryan has taken in the House, and responded to Log Cabin Republicans who complained that he was "ignoring the fact that they are nice." He said he wasn't ignoring that part at all.

    "I accept the fact that many of them are nice. So was Uncle Tom," Frank said. "But in both cases, they’ve been nice to the wrong people."

    A few things...

    1. The best way to get a people to support your cause is by bashing a supporting but slightly dissenting group within you cause. Apparently, Frank wants everyone to think with one mind.

    2. There are issues that gay people care about outside of marriage equality. I know its hard to believe, but its true. I'm voting Democrat in most cases this year, but its not bc of their pro-gay platform. I refuse to vote based on a single issue.

    3. People who are super liberal or staunchly conservative are usually incapable of thinking rationally when it comes to diametrically opposing opinions.

    4. musclefetish is secretly Barney Frank.

    Though a highly intelligent man, he made the wrong decisions at every turn, and compounded his policy errors with the petty and vindictive style of his politics.

    Though I agree with you, the National Review probably not the most unbiased source when it comes to analyzing liberal politics. It's kinda like NBC News with the right.icon_smile.gif

    JackBlair69 saidYou guys are clueless...Oh, but let's worry about gay marriage.


    Fuck you. The day after 9/11, the day your fucking president slept at the wheel while four planes slammed into us. Fuck you, and the ingrown hair on Rush Limbaugh's ass that kept him out of Vietnam. Really, this embassy torching is Obama's fault? Why, because he isn't drone-bombing them into the stone age? What the fuck does your opinion matter any more?

    JackBlair69 saidYou guys are clueless. Barney Frank can cram it - gays are not only concerned about gay issues.

    You wonder why many of us are allied with LCR and GoProud? Here's yet another reason:


    If you haven't noticed, President Obama has fucked up royally.

    Yesterday (9-11, and that was no coincidence) our ambassador to Libya was ASSASSINATED.

    Does this mean anything to you? Obama has been a disaster of a president. Yet the whole media fawns over him like he's some kind of genius.

    Last night that dumbass Maddow conducted an interview with Michael Lewis who wrote a tongue-bath of a piece in Vanity Fair about how wonderful Obama handled Libya and the "Arab Spring."

    This interview took place AS OUR CONSULATE IN BENGHAZI WAS BURNING.

    Meanwhile, our embassy and State Dept were TWEETING (yes fucking TWEETING) incoherent statements, first saying "we're sorry that Muslims' feelings were hurt," then saying "Oh, those statements weren't cleared by the WH."

    Then that asshole Obama repeated the same apology this morning. He said "There's no excuse" for what happened to our ambassador. Yet he said in the same breath that we should stop being mean to Muslims.

    No excuse - yet he excused the fuckers.

    And then he had the gall to tell us that Libyans were taking Amb. Stevens "to the hospital." Bullshit. They were parading his half-naked, near-dead body around the city.

    Oh, but let's worry about gay marriage.

    Yes, God forbid we do not agree with the vocal majority.

    This isn't about "free speech" or some honest difference of opinion. JackBlair is a fucking idiot who thinks Obama is a socialist, communist, Nazi Muslim. You agreeing with him doesn't put you in the brightest company.

    Do you, like him, think Obama's to blame for this? Or are you suggesting that (in a slightly more nuanced way) that a discussion about gay marriage should wait while we contend with this national tragedy? Because that sure didn't come across when you quoted JackBlair's whole fucktard post.

    I think Jack's post speaks for itself, as well as my comment. You seem intelligent enough, you can figure out the rest. icon_smile.gif

    JackBlair69 saidGood point - if we had drone-bombed them into the stone age, this wouldn't have happened, and it would have improved the fucking place.

    The option is still on the table.


    On the table, huh. Yes, our foreign policy leaders need to listen to a fucktard like you. And this "them" you think you'll be drone-bombing: who exactly are they? You're such a fucking retard. Please move out of this country.

    I have Libyan friends, who all have condemned these killings. Shall we lump them all together?

    @JackBlair69 and his one friend

    The point of this thread is that people who cow up to their oppressors are Uncle Toms. You're welcome to put gay marriage at the botttom of your "laundry list" (to use a Romneyism) but pardon us if we call a spade a spade and say you're an Uncle Tom.icon_wink.gif

    JackBlair69 saidIt doesn't occur to the vocal majority that gays should have any other concern except the ones that the vocal majority dictates.


    But fucktard concerns: that's who we should be listening to? I wouldn't trust you to sort laundry. Your discussion topics--meant to hijack this thread from WHAT BARNEY FRANK SAID--to slam Obama is what's out of line. Please go back to building your fallout bunker.

    JackBlair69 saidYour anecdotal experience with nice Libyans does not reflect what is happening in Libya now.

    What is happening in Libya right now is not ALL Libyans, and never is that a reason to bomb someone into the stone age. Seriously, are you that fucking imbecilic?

    JackBlair69 saidI just wonder why you feel the need to say "fuck you" every other post.


    I aim to make it every post that responds to you. You're a fucking idiot, trying to pose as some sort of "reasonable other voice". Yet every stupid fucking thing you blather on about was the topic du jour on Fox News just hours before. Even the employees at Fox News know what an idiot you are for believing them. Hell, they're just working for a paycheck. But you BELIEVE them. Jesus Christ, read a paper for a change.

    I already watch msnbc, don't need any more silly news.


    I don't have cable. I watch the Newshour on PBS and listen to NPR. I feel they give balanced news and avoid the fluff.

    Because you're a fuck eating waste of fucking space in this fucking nation you claim to fucking love.

    And, yes, in regards to a previous post, you have called President Obama a socialist and a communist Marxist, and everything else under the sun. There's nothing wrong with voicing your fuck-filled opinions, but you said, so own it.
