Right-Wingers Pitch An Online Hissy Fit After NASCAR Posts A ‘Happy Pride Month’ Tweet

Everywhere they look, political conservatives see signs that they’re under attack as American culture becomes more inclusive and accepting of alternative lifestyles and points of view.

Nowhere is that clearer than in the issue of LGBTQ rights, especially with Pride Month starting yesterday and ads going up around the internet calling for tolerance. As Philip Bump of the Washington Post notes, 2023 has become the “summer of anti-LGBTQ panic.

At its heart, this is a backlash from the right against a feared future. It’s an effort to change the country’s trajectory, blaming the current path on perceived indoctrination. The past few decades suggest that the right might soon discover that they aren’t creating a new road forward but, instead, a few last speed bumps.

NASCAR is one of the last bastions of “good ol’ boy” culture remaining, with its most fervent fans residing in the deep South, and now even that is become more inclusive, as proven by a tweet the organization sent out with the message, “We celebrate the LGBTQ+ community during #PrideMonth and beyond.”

That didn’t sit very well with right-wingers who compose the vast majority of NASCAR fans. After all, if you can’t watch cars going round and round and hate gay people at the same time, what in the hell has become of America??!!

Of course, that was the very same mindset during the 1950s and 60s when it came to civil rights for black Americans. How dare these people want to eat in the same restaurants and have the same opportunities!

As you’d expect, many NASCAR acolytes vented their bigotry and rage in response to the Pride Month tweet.

Right-Wingers Pillory Ted Cruz For Daring To Criticize Uganda’s Disgusting Anti-LGBTQ Law

For perhaps the first time since he was elected to the U.S. Senate, Ted Cruz (R-TX) actually made a principled stand on an issue that every American should be incensed about.

On Twitter, Cruz harshly criticized a new law enacted in the nation of Uganda which makes homosexuality a crime that can be punished by death.

ABC News reports on the new law:

The Anti-Homosexuality Act 2023, which was introduced in Uganda’s Parliament in early March, calls for the death penalty for “aggravated homosexuality,” which is defined as cases of same-sex relations involving people who are HIV positive as well as with minors and other categories of vulnerable people. Anyone else who engages in gay sex could face life imprisonment if convicted, while anyone caught trying to have same-sex relations could face up to 10 years in prison.

Surprisingly, Cruz posted a harsh condemnation of the law on Twitter.

“This Uganda law is horrific and wrong. Any law criminalizing homosexuality or imposing the death penalty for ‘aggravated homosexuality’ is grotesque and an abomination. ALL civilized nations should join together in condemning this human rights abuse.”

Hats off to Ted Cruz for taking this stand. He’s almost never right about anything, but he managed to get this one right.

But while many supported Cruz’s tweet, right-wingers slammed him, suggesting that he was part of the problem and that LGBTQ discrimination should be allowed.



Marjorie Taylor Greene Defends Her Boyfriend After He Gets Busted Dressing In Women’s Clothes

Ever since she arrived in Congress, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) has made it clear that she is a proud bigot when it comes to the issue of equal rights for LGBTQ Americans, even going to far as to suggest that members of the LGBTQ community are trying to “groom” young children so they can sexually exploit them.

But today karma caught up with the controversial Georgia Republican in the form of a video being distributed on social media which shows her current boyfriend, Brian Glenn, who works as director of programming at Right Side Broadcasting, dressed in drag as part of a news broadcast he did several years ago, according to Newsweek.

Sharing the clip, which is captioned “A Tuna Christmas to open at Casa Manana,” Greene said Glenn had dressed as a woman “for morning news in Dallas years ago reporting on an upcoming local theatre production.”

Greene reacted to the video by attacking those who had shared it, but she clearly didn’t understand her own blatant hypocrisy, writing:

I’m literally lol’ing.

@brianglenntv dressed in drag for morning news in Dallas years ago reporting on an upcoming local theatre production and the morons over at Patriot Takes think this is an attack. Brian loves the throwback and is reposting.


The left is so stupid.

Reaction to the video and to Greene’s pathetic attempt to dismiss it was righteously harsh and hilarious.

Fox’s Laura Ingraham Has A Meltdown Over Non-Binary Characters In ‘Transformers’ Cartoon

Now that most of the right-wing anger over Bud Light partnering with a trans TikTok influencer has begun to die down, conservatives have begun looking for another focus for their narrow-minded hatred and loathing.

And it appears that Fox News host Laura Ingraham has found the perfect candidate for conservatives to be enraged over: A non-binary transformer from the “Transformers” cartoon TV show.

Mediaite reports that Ingraham was in a lather Friday evening on her show.

“Now, as a parent, you often ask yourself what do my kids need?” Laura Ingraham told viewers. “A loving family, a roof over their heads, a life grounded in faith and freedom. But you probably never thought what they really really need is a non-binary robot. But that’s exactly what Paramount thinks they need because in Transformers: Earth Spark, that’s what they’re giving them. The series is made for kids ages seven and up, and here they are introducing a character named Nightshade last November.”

After Ingraham shared the “Transformers” clip, she began ranting yet again.

“[T]he show is shoving these inane pronouns down the throats of seven-year-olds. I mean, we’re lucky to get them to spell the regular pronouns and get those straight.”

“So what’s next? Well, this isn’t normal, it’s not trendy, it’s not cool. These are destructive and corrosive lies. And they’re only gonna end when enough responsible adults say, ‘Cut it out. We’re not funding this anymore. So. don’t be afraid to stand up and say that.”

Oh my God! They’re teaching kids to be tolerant of others! It’s the end of civilization as we know it!

Memo to Laura Ingraham and her ilk: If you don’t want your kids to watch “Transformers,” then don’t let them. The rest of us aren’t as paranoid as you are.

Megyn Kelly’s Controversial Red Cap Blows Up The Internet And Gets Her Branded A Bigot

Former Fox News host Megyn Kelly — who currently does a podcast on SiriusXM radio — became the talk of the internet due to a red baseball cap she wore in a photo taken with a friend of hers in Miami.

According to Mediaite, Kelly tweeted out this message:

“Thank you for a HUGE week on the ⁦@MegynKellyShow⁩. In Miami celebrating our friend’s 50th & looking fwd to another great week of shows starting Monday,” she wrote above the image. Kelly’s hat, red with white lettering, had the words “Make Women Female Again.”

After getting lots of replies asking Kelly where she had gotten the cap, she replied.

Posie Parker is the pseudonym of Kellie-Jay Keen-Minshull, a notorious anti-trans crusader. An anti-trans rally held by Parker in Melbourne in March was attended by neo-Nazis who raised their arms in Nazi salutes:

The Victorian government said it was open to looking at further action against the display of hate symbols after a group of protesters performed Nazi salutes outside parliament on Saturday. Clashes broke out on Saturday between rival protest groups on the steps of Victoria’s parliament after a group of men performed Nazi salutes. The men had gathered in support of British anti-transgender activist Posie Parker.

Kelly’s tweet has since gone viral, with over 1.3 million views, and while right-wingers were delighted by her cap, many others were not so impressed.

Here’s a sampling of Kelly’s brainless podcast with her whining about the firing of Tucker Carlson:
