Bigot of the Week Award: April 6, A.G. Crowe and Bobby Jindal

6 Apr

Bigot of the Week

Thank you to my friend Bonnie for this week’s nomination for BWA.  Wow!  What a whopper of a Bigot Award this week!  Crowe is one of those true monsters that will do anything and everything to keep white heterosexual Christian men in power.  Crowe’s recent bill, which is now law allows charter schools to refuse to admit gay students.  Gee, does this sound like discrimination to anyone else?  Crowe defended his bill of HATE by saying:

…the bill is designed to ensure that executive branch agencies and local governments stop including bans on discrimination against characteristics not listed in state law as a condition for private companies to do business with their agencies.

How lovely, you amazing bigot.  The new law also allows the schools to deny students on their ability to speak English–Racist much?

The ever enlightened (cough, cough, cough)  Gov. Bobby Jindal responded: “We’re against discrimination, but we don’t believe in special protections or rights.”  Special rights?  Did he really just say that?  What special rights?  I worry most about the impact this will have around LGBT youth–they are clearly not safe in the state of Louisiana.

And we have a dishonorable mention this week going to another Southern Republican Governor, Nikki Haley of South Carolina. She seems to have accepted the role of apologist for her party’s attacks on women, as demonstrated by her appearance on The View this week. Making a confusing argument against the government interfering with contraception choices (which is EXACTLY what her party is trying to do), she is the latest in a series of self-loathing minorities trotted out by the GOP.  Obviously, Haley is a modeling herself off the Stepford Wives!

    When I think of these people telling me and other amazing people we are going to hell. I always respond in my head with see you there, I will be the one making sure you get an extra close spot to satan at dinner.

      That made me laugh. I always think of Satan saying: “Gosh, y’all are kinda mean.”

        I think of Satan from south park and his boyfriend sadam hussein. From the south park movie.

        Bonnie, I included a link to your blog, so I hope you get some good traffic. I love your blog!

        I have got some crazy good traffic from the link!
        Thanks 🙂

        Good. I’m glad, dear heart.

    You used the best definition for A.G. Crowe, a MONSTER. The bill is nothing but a divisive piece of BS!

    Gov. Bobby Jindal should realize that some people, especially people in his party, would view him as a walking special right considering his ethnicity.

    I would love to shake Nikki Haley but I don’t want to disturb the last couple brain cells playing ping-pong in her head. It is so sad to see the self hatred that is so ingrained into the GOP.

      Oh my god your comment tickled me so much! As usual you are spot on regarding Jindal and his party. I fear our Haley and the entire GOP are sharing a brain, thus no one knows whose turn it is to use the brain.

      • James Queale April 6, 2012 at 12:39 pm #

        Is that why they are always using the term “Group-think”? It all makes sense now.

      • Michael Hulshof-Schmidt April 6, 2012 at 12:45 pm #

        Exactly! Can you imagine a GOP meeting: “Okay, who has the brain? Where is it? Whose turn is it to use it?”

    It’s hard for them to share, after all isn’t that socialism?

    • Michael Hulshof-Schmidt April 6, 2012 at 1:37 pm #

      Share? What does that word mean?

      • James Queale April 6, 2012 at 1:47 pm #

        “Share” is a word no one should speaketh unless one needeth to, for it holds great evil power. Beware! I think I read that in the Bible.

        You need to be listening more to job creators! 🙂
