Gay Tech Bears Share Their Plans For JebBushForPresident.com With Rachel Maddow: VIDEO

Rachel Maddow and tech bears

As you may or may not know, visiting JebBushforPresident.com doesn't take you to the kind of website you were likely expecting, and that's thanks to a pair of tech bears who laid claim to the domain back in 2008. Rachel Maddow caught wind of their project and invited them to her show for an interview. After highlighting the Twitter antics of Ethan Czahor, the misogynistic excuse for a human being that Bush hired to be the CTO for his online campaign presence, Maddow dove into the interview with CJ Phillips and Charlie Rainwater about themselves and their plans for JebBushforPresident.com.

As mentioned in our previous coverage, they intend to use the domain - which they bought for $8 - to educate people on LGBT issues in the U.S. and what lives of gay couples are like. Weirdly enough the Jeb Bush campaign never approached the men to try and buy the domain off of them.

Rachel Maddow Examines The Gay Marriage Chaos In Alabama: VIDEO

Rachel

On her show last night Rachel Maddow dug into the marriage melee that ensued yesterday in Alabama following a decision from the U.S. Supreme Court not to extend the stay of a federal judge's ruling striking down Alabama's ban on same-sex marriage.

AlAs Towleroad reported, while some same-sex couples in the Heart of Dixie were able to tie the knot, others were prevented from doing so because probate judges in some Alabama counties either refused to grant marriage licenses to same-sex couples, citing an order from state Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore that declared same-sex marriage was incompatible with Alabaman's constitution, or refused granting marriage licenses to any couple, gay or straight. As one headline aptly put it, "chaos reigns."

Watch as Rachel slams Judge Roy Moore's hypocrisy and discusses what the U.S. Supreme Court's decision could mean for their upcoming consideration of gay marriage with law professor Kenji Yoshino, AFTER THE JUMP...

Rachel Maddow Shows Some Love to Gay Tech Bears Who Own Jeb Bush Presidential Campaign Website: VIDEO

Maddow2

In a segment on an odd set of stories from Oregon, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow took a look at CJ Phillips and Charlie Rainwater - the self-described high-tech bear couple who bought www.JebBushForPresident.com back in 2008 and are using the site "as a platform to educate our friends and family about political impact to LGBT families."

Maddow, who called the story "the single most amazing thing you need to know about Oregon today", also used the segment to educate her viewers about bears - or as she calls them "everyone's favorite happy gay subculture."

Rachel Maddow Dissects the AFA's Desperate Attempt to Distance Itself From Bryan Fischer: VIDEO

Maddow1

Last night, MSNBC host Rachel Maddow continued to shine a spotlight on the American Family Association's efforts to distance itself from radio host Bryan Fischer in the lead up to a Republican National Convention trip to Israel backed by the AFA. Maddow, who broke the story of Fischer's firing Wednesday, pointed out some choice quotes by Fischer and questioned why the RNC would continue with the trip in light of the fact that Fischer was being kept on as AFA radio host.

The RNC, for its part, issued the following statement to MSNBC last night after days of refusing to comment:

"We don't agree with Bryan Fischer's comments and are glad AFA has severed ties with him."

Maddow, of course, wasn't buying it and devoted the latter portion of her segment to doing what she does best - taking a magnifying glass to the GOP's longstanding policy of cozying up next to extremist organizations and figures.

AFA Spokeshater Bryan Fischer Fired: VIDEO

Fischer

Rachel Maddow is reporting tonight that Bryan Fischer, virulently anti-gay Director of Issues Analysis for the American Family Association, has been fired from his position.

MaddowMaddow reports that the firing was due to Israeli press reporting that Reince Preibus and the RNC are taking a trip to Israel which is being funded by the AFA (see headline below).

Meanwhile, Bryan Fischer spouts on his radio show nearly every week (as Towleroad readers know very well) that "Jews have no right to practice the faith of Judaism in the United States" and that gays are behind the Holocaust and Naziism.

He said this week that the gay agenda is driven by the "unvarnished energy of Satan."
