I am so sick and tired of the narrative that members of the LGBT community, pro-choicers, and liberals are the problem with this country. It seems any time I tune into the news there’s some new jackass spewing intolerance, hatred, and calling for a mass eradication of people who’s only crime was to have the audacity to have a difference of opinion. The fuck?
Here I was going about my day enjoying myself especially after reading about Chrissy Teigens latest antics with a twitter user who dared come for her parenting skills when I came across this article:
As you can imagine, the first thing that popped into my mind about this was, “What the actual fuck?” The next, “Click bait, it’s gotta be click bait.” After all, who would be ignorant enough to say some shit like this on a regular day let alone during Pride month?
The article goes on to summarize how the Mayor, yes the Mayor of this relatively small town took his basic ass on Facebook, a public platform and began to comment on a post, according to reports from CNN, that read:
“We live in a society where homosexuals lecture us on morals, transvestites lecture us on human biology, baby killers lecture us on human rights and socialists lecture us on economics!”
To which the mayor replied:
“The only way to change it would be to kill the problem out. I know it’s bad to say but with out [sic] killing them out there’s no way to fix it.”
Now what the fuck does that message say to you.
When you read this message what does it infer?
That members of the LGBT, pro- choice sympathizers, and liberals, all deserve to die because what?
We believe in everyone’s right to be able to do with their bodies what they choose. How fucking dare we!
It gets better though. Once this bigoted asshole gets called on his shit, he first tries to deny his public statements, then after realizing he’s been caught red handed, owns up to his words but tries to deflect by saying that he thought he was having a private conversation.
On what fucking planet??!?!?! How did you think this Mayor Chambers?
First of, in the age of social media, information leaks, gotcha politics, and Donald fucking Trump, aren’t we ALL well versed in not posting anything online whether in a private conversation or not that you wouldn’t want to come back and bite you in the ass later?
Second of all, is me knowing that you didn’t intend for your hate speech to reach the audience it was targeted towards supposed to make it easier for me to swallow your hatred?
Let’s get real here.
This man represents a group of people who share his opinions and view on the subject and is probably why the headlines aren’t already reading that he has been removed from office. For him to have felt so comfortable speaking about this in such a public way, because I refuse to believe he thought he was talking about this is private, speaks volumes for this town and the mindset of some of his constituents.
But he still, doesn’t stop here. It’s almost like he is going for some sort of bigot asshole of the year award when he attempts to insult our collective intelligence by issuing a condescending apology where he states:
“Although I believe my comment was taken out of context and was not targeting the LGBTQ community, I know that it was wrong to say anyone should be kill [sic].” – Mayor Mark Chambers
Who the fuck does he think he’s talking to?
Comprehension skills are on deck my good sir. I can read.
So can everyone else who has read the words posted by you, meant only for the eyes of your backwoods, “traditionalist”, homophobic, ignorant, insufferable, comrades.
The fact that this man still holds this elected government position speaks volumes for this town and their ideals. In my opinion, this just another instance where the insolence of our president has opened up the platform for every dogmatist to slither from under their rocks and shed their skins for all the world to see.
Here’s a flaming fuck you, to you Mayor Mark Chambers. May you continue to age with the grace you deserve, or don’t.
