!! OMG, happy hump day! Hosted by the woman with the giant MAGA hat outside of Mar-a-Lgo who wants to be taken seriously !!

A Trump-supporter upset about the FBI raiding Trump’s Mar-a-Lago is FED up with the Feds! And she’s putting on her protest hat which is the the same size of Yosemite Sam’s – but make it fascist! Woof. 🙁

“The Democrats are weaponizing the FBI and it has to stop!” the totally-not-crazy-seeming woman declares in the video, which has been viewed over 1.2 million times in less than 24 hours. “The FBI is not here to weaponize against another president. It never has happened before.”

She continues, “They should go after things that are clearly a violation, meaning the Hunter laptop, which they don’t even have to investigate because the laptop is right there. All the evidence is right there. Hillary. All of that is not investigated. President Trump is investigated because they’re scared that he’s running and he will win again.”

See the words straight from the horse’s mouth after the jump! Don’t let your brain rot while doing so.

!! OMG, quote of the day: Dr. Anthony Fauci says government response to Monkeypox must address anti-gay stigmas !!

Dr. Fauci, a pioneer in the fight against HIV/AIDS, said that the federal government must do everything it can to underscore make the population understand who the real “enemy” is.

“The enemy is the virus, not anybody who’s being afflicted with the virus,” he said.

According to the World Health Organization, the monkeypox virus is transmitted “from one person to another by close contact with lesions, body fluids, respiratory droplets and contaminated materials such as bedding.”

“We need to get our arms around understanding just the extent of the spread, how it’s spread, what population,” Fauci said.

“Right now it’s focused — because it’s about 99% among men who have sex with men. We’ve got to understand the modality of transmission, the manifestations, also the risk for people like children and pregnant women,” he added. “So we’ve got to reach out to the community, particularly men who have sex with men, get rid of anything that even smacks a little bit of stigma, and make sure we outreach to them.”

– Dr. Anthony Fauci, on that the government’s response against Monkeypox must include combating anti-gay stigmas that could be associated with the disease.

!! OMG, Donald Trump describes LGBTQ+ people as “sickos” in speech eluding to 2024 run !!

We feel absolutely sick. That evil, orange Oompa Loompa is back at the podium and spewing even more hate than ever. For a man that once tried to convince the LGBTQ+ community he was an ally (unsuccessfully) by dangling around a pride flag and having his daughter do a pride speech – our stomach just prepared itself to make a dhiarrea. Trump took the podium for a bizarre speech where he made up stories about trans women with 30-foot-long arms and described LGBTQ+ people as “sickos who are pushing sexual content in kindergartens: [via queerty]

“Federal, state, and local government should aggressively enforce existing statutes to stop the perverted sexualization of minor children,” he said. “You have the statutes.”

The “sexualization of children” is a phrase that the right has been using this past year to refer to any discussion of LGBTQ identities and children. The expression has been applied to discussing LGBTQ people in school or having LGBTQ books like And Tango Makes Three – which is about a baby penguin with two dads – available in school libraries.

It also gets used when supportive parents who don’t force their children to follow gender rules around clothing, or parents who support their transgender kids’ identities.

“The society that refuses to protect its children is a society that soon will not be able to protect anybody,” Trump said. “This is a hallmark of cultural and social decay against which we should fight back very hard and very soon we don’t have time to wait years to do this.”

“The sickos who are pushing sexual content in kindergartens or providing puberty blockers to young children who have no idea what a puberty blocker is – neither do I, by the way, neither do most of the people in the audience as you smile,” he said. While he was at least honest about not knowing anything about health care for transgender youth, he took a strong stance against it.

“Let’s just say they’re not good – are not just engaged in acts of depravity in many cases they are breaking the law and they should be held fully accountable,” he said.

“By the way, we should not allow men to play in women’s sports. So crazy,” he said.

Find his full, hate-filled speech after the jump. If you are LGBTQ+, OR cis for that matter, and still supporting this fascist loser, you really need take a long hard look in the mirror.

!! OMG, WATCH: NBA legend Charles Barkley sends message of love to gay and transgender people: “I love you. And if anybody gives you sh*t, tell them Charles said, ‘F**k you.'” !!

The LGBTQ+ community has historically faced a ton of oppression, and the sports industry – well… they’ve also been pretty homophobic and closed off at times to LGBTQ+. There’s been so much discrimination simply as a result of one’s gender or sexuality in this traditionally “masc” hobby/industry. So it’s VERY refreshing to watch an NBA icon like Charles Barkley use his platform to spread understanding, love and acceptance within his space. Believe it or not, basketball has a huge influence on a lot of people!

“I Love You. And If Anybody Gives You Sh*t, Tell Them Charles Said, ‘Fuck You.'”

Werk! Check out Charle’s message on video after the jump.

!! OMG, anti-gay “manosphere” pastor has been accused of multiple gay sexual relationships !!

Well, well, well! It looks as if Los Angeles-based anti-gay pastor, online radio host, and “manosphere” star Jesse Lee Peterson is alleged to have had multiple gay relationships and exhibited a pattern of sexually harassing male associates. Several of Peterson’s former friends and associates have come forward, including one who claims to have been in a decade-long sexual relationship with Peterson.

Radical right-wing Catholic site Church Militant first broke the story in June with a 30-minute video featuring interviews with the men accusing Peterson of making sexual advances toward them. Another, Patrick Rooney, says he was sexually involved with Peterson, who is unmarried, for roughly 10 years, despite being married to a woman. Find more on this after the jump!

!! OMG, WATCH: This TV anchorwoman handles two transphobes like a total boss !!

Anchorwoman Olayemi Olurin put two transphobic contributors talking in circles yesterday on The Hill TV, in their place. She did NOT let down, hinnie!

Commentators Robby Soave and Kim Iversen spent the entire segment emphatically wondering why they weren’t “allowed” to deadname Elliot Page in the public eye. Meanwhile, Olurin stuck to her guns and remained the sole voice on the panel to understand the concepts of basic respect and personhood.

So they have no problem moving from Anakin to Darth Vader, but for some reason Elliot Page really gets their goat!? Hmmm, I wonder why… Find the video after the jump.
