Watch it, George, your Homophobia is showing


U.S. Sen. George Allen


When I jokingly suggested yesterday that you hold a press conference with some black minstrels to address the explosive allegations surrounding your persistent use of the N-Word, I didn’t think that you’d actually do it.

You did, as the above picture attests.  God is soooo Good!  Everything I suggested you did, right down to the black preachers railing against same-sex marriage. Where did you find those Negroes?  Did you call rent-a-negro

If you didn’t call rent-a-negro, how did you “procure” their services?  I’ve heard that some “men of the cloth” are for sale, I just didn’t think y’all could round up so many.  I guess you’re so desperate to be pictured with friendly black faces that you’d say or do anything, pay anything to get them to “appear.”

Kidding aside, there is a serious matter I need to discuss with you.  No, Felix, I don’t mean the N-Word thing and your obvious lying.  It has to do with your homophobia and this B.S. event with the black preachers against same-sex marriage.

I’m afraid it just doesn’t look good for you to be defending yourself against charges of using racist epithets while engaging in a bigoted hatefest against the gay community.  It kinda validates the charges of racial animus and bigotry. 

As for the so-called “men of God” who participated in your mutual hatefest, I have this to say: Your ignorant musings about gay people are contrary to the biblical admonition to “love thy neighbor as thyself.”  You are beneath contempt for allowing yourselves and your ministry to be used as one of George Allen’s weapons of mass distraction.

Mrs. Coretta Scott King, before her passing, made it clear what she thought about this question.  Her eloquence is illuminating, she said “Homophobia is like racism and anti-Semitism and other forms of bigotry in that it seeks to dehumanize a large group of people, to deny their humanity, their dignity and personhood…this sets the stage for further repression and violence that spread all too easily to victimize the next minority group.”

It should be clear to all those who are sentient that you are an unrepentant racist and homophobe that is undeserving of the honor of representing the commonwealth in the Senate. Your gay bashing, confederate nostalgia, and rank dishonesty regarding your malicious use of our nation’s most infammatory epithet consign you forever to the ashbin of history.

  1. I agree with you. I think his homophobia does help to validate past allegations of racial animus and bigotry.

    The rent-a-negro comment was funny. I’ll never understand how Black people – especially men – could be so affirming in denying people civil rights. I will understand how they don’t make the connection.

    I understand the whole Biblical aspect, but they don’t see how people used the Bible against Black people now they are doing it to others?

  2. T,

    It totally escapes these minstrels that they are participating in the same type of religious demogoguery that served as an ideological crutch for white supremacists. Mrs. King understood it. Too bad her preacher daughter and her husband’s niece don’t.

    As for the rent-a-negro comment, I couldn’t really resist that 🙂

  3. I agree with you. This is truly a “Picture of the Week”. Unfortunately many black preachers and politicians have been doing this type of thing for a long time. These preachers have never been held accountable. It’s time to make that happen!

    Your post along with a post by Jack and Jill Politics highlights the issue of black preachers being pimped by white politicans. It’s really time for progressive African American bloggers such as yourself, Field Negro, Jack and Jill Politics, Terrence Says, Oliver Willis, Mirror on America, Black Prof, Black Commentator and so many others, to come together to create our own BLACKnetroots effort to hold politicans both black and white accountable when it comes to our communities. Lets talk off line when you get a chance:

    You have much hatred in you. It looks as if you hate yourself . You need to read about Sodom and Gomorrah in the HOLY BIBLE.
