Speaking of being dicks, it’s a toss-up between these two sterling examples:
Thousands of women protested when Michigan State Rep. Lisa Brown (D-West Bloomfield) was banned from speaking on the House Floor for a day after she used the word “vagina” during a debate over anti-abortion bill.
But her colleague, State Rep. Wayne Schmidt (R-Traverse City), said Republican leadership’s decision to silence Brown was no different than putting a child in timeout.
“It’s like giving a kid a timeout for a day,” he told Lansing radio host Patrick Shiels. “You know, hey, timeout, you wanna comment too far, you spoke your piece. We’re gonna let these other people have their dissenting comments, and then we’ll get back to business.”
Yeah, those silly womenfolk and their childish behavior to protect their precious ladybits. Don’t they know that men rule? Get back in the kitchen, bitches.
And then there’s Bill Donohue, the one-man self-appointed scold for the Roman Catholic church:
Catholic League president Bill Donohue, a vocal conservative voice who recently warred with The Daily Show over a “vagina manger,” has infuriated prominent Jewish leaders with a private email last week to Philadelphia Rabbi Arthur Waskow. Waskow, a progressive rabbi involved in the Jewish Renewal movement, had criticized the Vatican and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops in a Huffington Post op-ed for “attacking the religious freedom of millions of American women and the religious freedom of American nuns” over contraception. Donohue responded with a note to Waskow that launched an email exchange that ended with a warning, forwarded to BuzzFeed by a source close to the rabbi, that “Jews had better not make enemies of their Catholic friends since they have so few of them.” Donohue also includes a postscript saying, “I do not have a long nose.”
Mr. Donahue’s has made a living out of screaming about other people being anti-Catholic if they scratch their ass during the playing of Ave Maria. So a ration of antisemitism is perfectly okay. After all, they killed the Baby Jesus.
