Southwest Tea Party Really, Really Supports Chick-fil-A


Tossing around such charming phrases as "fag scum" and "sodomy based marriage," the Southwest Tea Party took to Twitter yesterday to show their support for Chick-fil-A and its homophobic CEO, Dan Cathy.

Some classy stuff, right here.

  3. Does this individual base his marriage on the intercourse which he has? Is it a missionary marriage?

    And again, those who rely on that ol' 'extinct/destruction' meme are the ones who truly have some serious closet issues. If you're an anti-gay man who is attracted to women, you're never going to play the "extinct" card. You're only going to play it if you're constantly trying to overcome your own urges.

    The Southwest TP Tweeter is protesting a *little* too much here.

  4. These tweets all look they were written by one person - the same idiot.

  5. Since when did Tripp Palin start tweeting?

    btw, hate to break the news to him but this country was most definitely not set up based on Judeo-Christian values. It's unreal these guys just want to rewrite history. But, you know, why let a thing like facts stop you?

  8. @Wes Thank Towleroad, it has already given them all the publicity they crave for.

  9. @KOP5 Exactly, I agree. They know they won't be able to play 'hetero' for long and so will get extinct.

  10. Someone should ask Mr. Cathy if this is the family values and Christian values he's trying to promote. According to the Soutwest Tea Party it is.

  11. 16 followers. 30 tweets ever. Bloggers seriously need to learn some journalistic integrity.

  12. This is how Hitler stirred up the German Catholics to hate minorities and become Hitler's Nazis who went on to murder millions of people. Hitler was a Catholic and the first antigay Christian mad man terrorist who murdered gays and Jews and wanted to kill anybody who disagreed with his insanity. Don't think it can not happen again, it has and will if we do nothing to stop mad men like him.

  15. They have 16 followers. Why on earth are you giving someone with only 16 followers publicity?

  16. Does anyone doubt that he is saying what a lot of his ilk feel?

  20. 16 followers ... and following 36 themselves.

    Blogging about this feeds right into the liberal gay stereotype.


    Posted by: Cinesnatch | Jul 26, 2012 2:27:48 PM

  21. 16 Followers and 15 of those followers are following more people than their own following base. Doesn't speak much to influence.

  22. To the "this isn't news" or "there aren't enough followers for this to qualify as news" crowd:

    Think about the nutty TP rhetoric; not just what you're reading from this single Tweeter; but think about how increasingly insane/zealoty/rabid/violent Tea Party rhetoric has risen to. This is all an unfortunate consequence of the older generations or the poorer Southern folks getting der Internet.

    You see, before, nutty people had nutty thoughts, but kept to themselves because they knew they were nutty and feared people would learn how nutty they actually were.

    Now, we have scores of blogs, written by scores of "good" "Christian" "Patriots" who "love Jesus" and "love the Constitution." Every derpy zealot who reads these blogs, these Tweets, and "news" sources (like World Nut Daily) now feels *empowered.* They feel like they can be open with their nutty rhetoric. And thus, it multiplies and intensifies. If we don't stop it, if we don't call peoples' attention to it, it will continue to spread.

    And that's why it's news.

  23. well, maybe they got 16 members but only one of 'em is responsible for all those tweets - and my money says that one is a closet case.

  24. The Tea Party has once again revealed itself for what it really is: a glorified version of the KKK.

  25. Well, how Christ like of the precious little Christians.
