Fox Attacks Barney Frank for Calling Scalia a 'Homophobe'

Scalia FOX news attacks Barney Frank for calling Antonin Scalia — a man who has said that gay kindergarten teachers might "induce" children to become homosexuals, has compared homosexuality to murder, cruelty to animals, or polygamy, and has said that laws against gay sex "served the same interest" as laws against bestiality and incest — a "homophobe."

How dare he!!!

If you missed it the other day, here's the interview to which they're referring.

  1. It's all right to legislate and express yourself like a homophobe, but it's insulting to be called one?

    Priceless.

  2. Fox news has become the parody of the parody of itself.

  3. Proof positive that anybody who watches Fox News is a fucking retard. Some Republicans ARE intelligent - and they're the ones who know better.

  4. Don't understand why the righties are in such a lather. In their universe, "homophobe" is a compliment.

  5. If you don't like being called a homophobe, stop being one. That is my simple and sincere message to Fox and those who support and take antigay discriminatory stances.

  6. I could only watch 19 seconds of that clip before becoming overcome by the hypocrisy and having to stop.

    Also, the idea that Barney Frank is the "far left" kind of cracks me up. Wait. Scratch the "kind of."

  7. Fox is struggling to remain relevant at a time when nobody cares.

  9. Nino actually makes me laugh in the same way that a belligerent jerry springer racist does. He's not unfunny, it's just that the jokes he makes are like bigoted jokes. You laugh at the person who thinks they're being funny than at the jokes themselves. Yeah, I'm really going to waste time expressing outrage at fox news...lower than the onion in providing hard hitting coverage.

  10. When asked whether he has ever sodomized his wife, he looked down in shame, NOT because he was embarrassed by the question, but because it caused him to recount the thousands of dollars he spent on whores.

  11. er, are bigoted jokes...not like. And the arguments are jokes, too...bigoted jokes.

    Posted by: TANK | Mar 24, 2009 2:23:26 PM


  12. All this Faux outrage seems misplaced. I'm sure Scalia is PROUD to be a homophobe.

  13. Yeah, Fat Tony's got fragile balls. He’s so sensitive he should be woman.

  14. Thomas is a racist- Alito is a closet case- Roberts closet is bigger than Alito- Scalia was beaten by dad for being a girlie girl

  15. I simply cannot watch FOX. It's an endless stream of wingnut hype... and it's a complete joke!

    Posted by: Mike | Mar 24, 2009 3:02:11 PM


  16. I love the part of the video with the commentator who notes that Scalia was only affirming the constitution doesn't sanction "homosexual sodomy" - cause you know there's that part in the constitution covering "heterosexual sodomy" and the list of approved positions for intercourse (Dirty Sanchez, Reverse Cowgirl, etc.)

  17. homophobe or not, justice SCABIA is a vile piece of humanity.

    Posted by: alguien | Mar 24, 2009 3:58:25 PM


  18. Actually Justice Scalia's argument wasn't that technical and it he did attack homosexuals and "the so-called homosexual agenda". There is no better word than homophobe for Scalia. He's the worst.

  19. ..Liberals use name-calling to personally attack and personally demonize people that don't agree with them... Coming up next on FOX: Activist Judges, Militant Gays, Leftist-Extremists and The Radical Homosexual Agenda.

  20. I quit watching fax ages ago. Screw them and their advertising money. There are better networks out there and there always will be.

  21. They don't call it faux news for nothing.

  22. If you are a true conservative, you would not support laws against so-called sodomy. You would want the government 100% out of your bedroom.

    You would support those laws if you were a homophobe, however.

    Apparently to Scalia, the true meaning of being an American means having our lives dictated to us based on the hypocritical teachings of his catholic cult.

    Posted by: paul c | Mar 24, 2009 10:00:37 PM


  23. Scalia supports the Catholic Church and any money he gives to them is available to pay the salaries of priests who rape children.

    Scalia therefore pays for children to be raped.

    He should be in jail.

  24. Homosexual Sodomy? LOVE IT!
