Mike Huckabee, Asshole of the Day for September 8, 2015

Kim Davis was released from jail today, which almost seemed like a disappointment to Mike Huckabee who had gone to Kentucky to throw a rally in her behalf. Having her walk out of jail ruins the optics of the boot of government on the throat of the pious martyr he was hoping for.

But he still found a way to keep the fight going after the judge said that Ms. Davis can’t interfere with the issuance of gay marriage licenses in her county. Huckabee said he would gladly go to jail:

“I have a message for the judge,” Huckabee proclaimed, “and I say this with all my heart: If this judge believes that somebody must be put in jail because a person is willing to stand on the biblical definition of marriage … Let Kim go, but if you have to put someone in jail, I volunteer to go. Let me go. Lock me up if you think that’s how freedom is best served.”

“I am willing to spend the next eight years in the White House leading this country,” he thundered, “but I want you to know, I’m willing to spend the next eight years in jail but I’m not willing to spend one day under the tyranny of people who believe they can take our freedom and conscience away!”

Of course Gov. Huckabee knows that’s not how it works. We don’t let innocent people serve jail time on behalf of the guilty, except of course for those wrongfully arrested or convicted. But by offering he’s trying to get some of her martyr cred to rub off on him and maybe breathe some life into his presidential campaign that is going nowhere.

It does of course beg the question as to what  a President Huckabee would do about gay marriage when he’s in the White House? Would he just ignore the Supreme Court decision? Mike Huckabee is not an idiot– he knows that the Supreme Court is the ultimate arbiter of the law in this country. There is no clause for the law to be whatever the government official claims God told them to do.

And furthermore, Kim Davis doesn’t have to be issuing marriage licenses. There are plenty other jobs she could do that won’t offend her religious sensibility– she is not forced to do this one. It’s a free country. The judge is compelling her to issue marriage licenses to gays as long as she continues to do the job of issuing marriage licenses, but the judge is not compelling her to keep that job. Mike Huckabee hasn’t spent a minute on that one.

So, for pretending that he would go to jail in her place, and trying to steal Kim Davis’ martyrdom for himself– a martyrdom that she could avoid by just quitting her job– Mike Huckabee is the Asshole of the Day.

Steve King, Asshole of the Day for September 6, 2015

Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis has made big news as the last holdout against issuing marriage licenses to gays. To the point that rather than comply, she chose to go to jail, where she currently sits in contempt of court.

And of course when someone uses their religion as a shield to hide their bigotry, there are politicians rushing to her defense as a way to elevate their status in the presidential campaign– Mike Huckabee has started the #ImWithKim hashtag, and Ted Cruz has said he “unequivocally” supports her right to use her government position to oppress gays per her religion.

What none of these people will acknowledge is that they would not support some government official’s right to impose their religious rules on others if that official had a different religion. 

And among all this steps Rep. Steve King, normally only known for his racist xenophobia.  He tweeted this:

There’s really two awful things here:

  1. That Kim Davis is like Rosa Parks
  2. That people should have defied the Supreme Court when it ruled against prayer in public schools

These are both offensive. Prayer in public schools should be offensive to everyone, because if it’s not your prayer, then you wouldn’t want some teacher forcing your kid to say it. To imagine that school prayer is OK is to think that your religion will always be the one in charge. And to not care that others have a different religion than you.

But it’s the Rosa Parks comment that really bothers me. Bigots of all sorts try to appropriate the righteousness of the Civil Rights movement to their pet causes, but there is always some disconnect which suggests that they don’t get why the Civil Rights protesters are heroes.

I saw the other day that people on Twitter were making this Rosa Parks/Kim Davis comparison, but it wasn’t until this weekend that I saw a public figure like Rep. Steve King making it. And it’s offensive because it switches the oppressor and victim:

Rosa Parks was jailed for DEMANDING the same rights white people enjoyed.
Kim Davis was jailed for DENYING gay people the rights she herself enjoys.

Kim Davis is not the Rosa Parks of gay marriage, she’s the person who enforced the rule against Rosa Parks sitting in the front of that bus. But Steve King doesn’t care about that– the only oppression he can see is of people like him, not others. And for that, he is the Asshole of the Day.

It is Steve King’s second time as Asshole of the Day. His first was for his racist statement about Obama not being raised American.

Mike Huckabee, Asshole of the Day for February 2, 2015

When he ran for president in 2007-08, Mike Huckabee had a nice guy image. Of course it would turn out that he was a regular sexist homophobe like so many others, but at the time his bigotry wasn’t out in front.

It is now. For the last few years he’s shown his nasty side, particularly when it comes to denying gays the same marriage rights he himself enjoys. And here’s the latest example:

Huckabee said that for him, same sex marriage is a religious issue.
“This is not just a political issue. It is a biblical issue. And as a biblical issue, unless I get a new version of the scriptures, it’s really not my place to say, ‘Okay, I’m just going to evolve.’ It’s like asking somebody who’s Jewish to start serving bacon-wrapped-shrimp in their deli. … or asking a Muslim to serve up something that is offensive to him or to have dogs in his backyard,” he said. “We’re so sensitive to make sure we don’t offend certain religions, but then we act like Christians can’t have the convictions that they’ve had for over 2,000 years.”

Everyone knows Jews don’t eat pork, and we would never make them eat it. But this analogy of Huckabee’s is way off. 

Asking a Christian baker to bake a wedding cake for a gay couple is not the same as making a Jew serve pork. Pork is against the Jewish religion, but cake is not against Christianity.

For Huckabee’s analogy to work, you’d have to be forcing the Christian baker to be having gay sex in his bakery, or forcing him to allow the customer to have gay sex there. No one is making them do that, or even suggesting it.

And don’t tell me it’s about them not serving people who sin. Baker’s don’t ask if a cake will be brought home and eaten by an unmarried couple before they have sex, which is also a sin. Mike Huckabee never once suggested that a Christian baker not serve a straight person who may have committed a grave sin, or intended to. Huckabee only wants Christians to be able to discriminate against gays. And for that, he is the Asshole of the Day.

Greg Abbott, Asshole of the Day for October 14, 2014

by TeaPartyCat ()

After the Supreme Court’s recent decision to let stand the Circuit Court rulings allowing gay marriage, the writing is on the wall. Now some states have decided to give up the fight– to stop wasting money and time on a losing cause and grudgingly just allow gays to have full marriage rights in their state, including recognizing gay marriages that happened elsewhere. That’s what Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker did, and Walker is no friend to gays.

But not everyone is ready to give up the fight. Down in Texas, Attorney General and GOP nominee for governor Greg Abbott is still grasping at straws for reasons to deny gay couples the rights he himself enjoys:

“First, Texas’s marriage laws are rationally related to the State’s interest in encouraging couples to produce new offspring, which are needed to ensure economic growth and the survival of the human race,” Abbott wrote.

“Second, Texas’s marriage laws are rationally related to the State’s interest in reducing unplanned out-of-wedlock births. By channeling procreative heterosexual intercourse into marriage, Texas’s marriage laws reduce unplanned out-of-wedlock births and the costs that those births impose on society. Recognizing same-sex marriage does not advance this interest because same-sex unions do not result in pregnancy.

So Texas only has incentives and special treatment for marriage to encourage offspring and to avoid out-of-wedlock births. That’s his argument.

But of course that’s just total bullshit. How do I know? Because straight couples in their 70s get to get married even though there is zero chance that a pregnancy will occur. But Texas let’s them get married, but not gay couples still young enough to bear children.

And, we should point out, Greg Abbott has also defended all the crazy Texas anti-abortion laws, and for all the moralizing about out-of-wedlock births with regards to gay marriage, they certainly prefer it to letting an unmarried woman get an abortion.

So, for pretending that Texas marriage laws are all about procreation and out-of-wedlock births, and not about discriminating against gays, Greg Abbott is Asshole of the Day.

It is Greg Abbott’s second time as Asshole of the Day. His previous win was for justifying a racist voter ID law based on a case it wouldn’t actually prevent.

Matthew Franck, Asshole of the Day for October 8, 2014

by TeaPartyCat ()

The Supreme Court refused to hear appeals yesterday on the circuit courts that have overturned gay marriage bans recently. All those courts cited the Supreme Court’s decision on DOMA, the Defense Of Marriage Act, as their reason for overturning, so it’s really no surprise what happened.

But gay marriage still offends straight people who are entitled full marriage rights themselves. And given the hyperbole of slippery slopes and endangerment of children, you’d think that gay marriage somehow was going to dissolve all existing marriages and force straight people into gay marriages on pain of death or some nonsense. Of course none of that is true.

In the wake of the the decision there has been a spike in clutch-the-pearls hysteria by straight men. And competing for most offensive was National Review writer Matthew Franck, who called the Supreme Court decision “a slow-motion Dred Scott for the twenty-first century.” Then later explained what he meant as:

In Dred Scott it was the false idea that some human beings can own other human beings, and that a democratic people cannot say otherwise. In the same-sex marriage rulings it is the false idea that men can marry men, and women can marry women, and that democratic peoples cannot say otherwise.

Now if you’re not familiar with the Dred Scott decision, it held that African Americans, whether slave or free, could not be American citizens and therefore had no standing to sue in federal court. Even free black men could not be US citizens, even though they had been born in the US. It’s a horrible, horrible thing, even during the times of slavery.

So of course Dred Scott is nothing like the Supreme Court allowing gay marriage. Dred Scott took away citizenship rights from free men, whereas the Supreme Court is now allowing free men and women to have the full rights of marriage that all citizens enjoy. Franck’s explanation is ridiculous and without merit. He’s arguing that the Supreme Court has denied voters the right to oppress and deny minorities the rights the majority themselves enjoy. He has made Dred Scott about majority rule, not about full citizenship rights.

Which only brings up the question of why he pulled Dred Scott out of his ass for comparison, since it so clearly doesn’t fit. It’s part of a pattern with people who want to dress their bigotry up in righteous clothing, where for example they might try to hide their desire to deny poor and sick people health insurance by claiming that the Nazis had health insurance too. It all boils down to:

  1. Pick something everyone knows is evil. Hitler, slavery, you know, something that everyone considers pure evil.
  2. Accuse those that disagree with you of that evil, regardless of how poorly it fits. No amount of hyperbole is too much.
  3. Everyone decides to support your bigotry.

At least that’s what they all think will happen. But of course Nazi and slavery comparisons are old and tired, and get no traction beyond those who already share your bigotry, thank God. But that doesn’t stop them from trying.

So, for claiming that granting gays the same marriage rights that he himself has is like denying African American freemen full citizenship, Matthew Franck is Asshole of the Day.

It is Matthew Franck’s first time as Asshole of the Day, but one of many to be featured here for being an asshole about gay marriage.

Dan Patrick, Asshole of the Day for August 7, 2014

by TeaPartyCat ()

Gay marriage bans continue to be struck down in the courts, and as they move their way up to appeals courts, the arguments are getting pretty strained. In fact North Carolina’s attorney general even said he won’t defend his state’s ban because there are no more legitimate arguments to make.

But even so, that hasn’t stopped people like the Texas GOP, who filed a brief in the state appeal saying:

The lieutenant governor and attorney general candidates have signed on with 61 other Republican lawmakers saying Texas’ desire to ban same-sex marriages is akin to its prohibitions against bigamy and incest.

The coalition’s brief in support of the state quoted proponents of the ban during legislative debate on the issue, who said recognition of gay marriages, “could lead to the recognition of bigamy, incest, pedophilia, and group marriage.”

The brief asserted that, “restrictions on marriage relating to these moral considerations remain valid. Thus, the goal of actively trying to prevent those practices from becoming valid is entirely rational public policy.”

In the brief, the Conservative Coalition argued that Texas leaders did not intend to discriminate against homosexuals with the marriage ban.

The brief stated (minus legal citations): “While the laws restrict same-sex marriage, they do so not by declaring that homosexuals cannot marry, but by defining marriage as it will be recognized by the State. The laws apply equally to everyone. They were not enacted to ‘disparage and injure,’ anyone. Nor were they enacted out of ‘animosity against homosexuals.’ To the contrary, the laws were enacted with a desire to elevate the state’s legal recognition of marriage to a level that society has celebrated throughout history.”

They say this, I’d point out, without mentioning any proof. That is, their argument is that recognizing gay marriage is a slippery slope to things we all agree are bad, like pedophilia and incest, except that it’s not provable. There has never been gay marriage in the past, and pedophilia and incest of course have always occurred. They also can’t argue based on the places that have recognized gay marriage earlier than in the US, because there are no laws in those places now recognizing incest or pedophilia as rights. So the slippery slope is something that just feels like proof to them.

Usually this slippery slope arguing happens on TV or in front of audiences, and not in a legal brief. That, to my knowledge, is taking the slippery slope into new territory.

And so I’d like to point out a few things about how ridiculous it is to claim that recognizing gay marriage will open the door to other things:

  1. Gay marriage is based on consent. So allowing it does not open the door to arrangements that don’t involve consent such as pedophilia. Pedophilia is wrong because the child cannot consent. Without both parties’ consent, there is no marriage.
  2. Gay marriage is expanding the definition from two consenting adults of different genders to any two consenting adults regardless of gender. It does not increase the quantity of people involved like polygamy. And gay marriage was never legal, whereas polygamy used to be, and still is in some places around the world. But polygamy recognition never led to gay marriage recognition, so why should we believe that recognizing gay marriage will lead to polygamy being recognized again?
  3. Incest is about sex, not marriage. Family members already enjoy many benefits of association for tax, legal, medical, and inheritance purposes that gay couples do not get. Granting gay couples marriage rights doesn’t change the rights and obligations of family members.

So gay marriage is not a slippery slope to these other things. It is only a slippery slope to gays having the same rights as couples as everyone else already does.

And finally they throw in this, as though it is somehow provable, or even likely given what supporters of gay marriage so often get caught saying:

They were not enacted to ‘disparage and injure,’ anyone. Nor were they enacted out of ‘animosity against homosexuals.’

Or in other words, See? We’re not bigots because we say we’re not. Sorry, assholes, but you don’t get to be the decider of what your motives are.

Finally, who gets the award today? We don’t give it to groups, so I’m giving it to the highest ranking person signing on, which is lieutenant governor candidate Dan Patrick. So, for pretending that legalizing gay marriage will somehow lead to legalizing polygamy, incest and pedophilia, without a shred of proof, Dan Patrick is Asshole of the Day.

It is Dan Patrick’s first time as Asshole of the Day.

Keith Ablow, Asshole of the Day for July 9, 2014

by TeaPartyCat ()

In the year since the Supreme Court overturned the Defense Of Marriage Act (DOMA), every single time a gay marriage ban has come before the courts, it has been struck down. No federal judge has upheld such a ban, and now Utah has appealed to keep theirs to the Supreme Court, where many people expect they will lose.

But that hasn’t stopped the homophobes from predicting that legalizing gay marriage will ruin everything and bring God’s wrath down on America, as though somehow America has been protected all these years because apparently God was so happy with us during the times of slavery and Jim Crow and the near extermination of the Native American tribes. In their minds God was fine with all that murder, but will remove his protection now that two men are allowed to kiss.

And a favorite argument of theirs against gay marriage has been the slippery slope– that if gays are allowed to marry then all hell will break loose. And they always end up with people marrying their dogs. Always. The argument against gay marriage is that it will open the door to bestiality. They say it without explanation as though it were obvious. And even though Rick Santorum had his last name turned into an anal sex joke by Dan Savage more than a decade ago, they just keep saying it. And today it was Fox News’ go-to psychiatrist, Dr. Keith Ablow explaining how gay marriage leads there:

Here’s the thing, the state needs to get out of the marriage business because here’s what we can expect. There’s no way that the state of California can deny a marriage license to four spouses now. Eight spouses, or I would say three human spouses and the canine they absolutely love because if love is the foundation of marriage, they can love their dog, too.

He doesn’t explain it, like always; the logic is that if you allow anything else in marriage than one man and one woman, then there are no rules. To him and his fellow conservatives, you can’t change the rules without losing them all.

Of course they overlook that marriage has changed, even in the Christian Biblical tradition that they so often refer to as being sacred– in that Bible women were property of fathers or husbands, they were forced into arranged marriages with no consideration of their consent. And there was polygamy. Many of the Bible patriarchs had multiple wives.

So marriage did change– it has not been always just one man, one woman, with both parties consenting. And changing from two people of different genders who both consent to any two people who both consent is a change a majority of Americans accept and want, and in no way opens the door to polygamy or bestiality. Gay people must consent to marriage just as straight people do, whereas animals cannot consent. So no door is opened to bestiality here, and conservatives all know how truly unacceptable it is to still be making that comparison here in 2014. And for that, Keith Ablow is the Asshole of the Day.

It is Keith Ablow’s 2nd time as Asshole of the Day. His previous time was for saying boys will be boys and we can’t restrain them, so girls shouldn’t wear leggings.

UPDATE: Judge strikes down Kentucky gay marriage ban

via AP: Kentucky gay marriage ban struck down.

A federal judge in Kentucky has struck down the state’s ban on same-sex couples getting licenses and marrying in the state.

However, Tuesday’s ruling was temporarily put on hold because it will be appealed, meaning it is not yet clear when same-sex couples could be issued marriage licenses.

Previously the judge stopped Kentucky from denying marriages performed in other states, and the Kentucky AG refused to defend it so the governor got outside council after saying this:

Now the judge is saying the state must perform gay marriages, so what will Gov. Beshear do? Let it happen, or appeal so he can milk a few more months of discriminating against gays out of it?

John Eastman, Asshole of the Day for June 19, 2014

by TeaPartyCat ()

Last year the Supreme Court ruled the Defense of Marriage Act, known as DOMA, to be unconstitutional. Of course the Defense Of Marriage Act wasn’t some nice thing about protecting marriage– it was defending marriage against gays getting to marry too. Of course for bigots and homophobes this ruling was a horrible thing, and we named both Justice Scalia and Pat Robertson as Asshole of the Day for things they said after the decision.

But you can see why they were so upset– on the basis of this ruling in every state where there has been a challenge to a gay marriage ban, courts have used the DOMA decision to overturn them, though many are still under appeal. No court has upheld a gay marriage ban since the Supreme Court’s ruling.

And today the National Organization For Marriage held a rally in Washington, DC, they called the “March For Marriage”. It was sparsely attended, but had some big name speakers including Mike Huckabee, who said God would condemn the country over gay marriage and Rep. Tim Huelskamp, who said “real men” oppose marriage equality.

But of all of the speakers, National Organization for Marriage chairman John Eastman stood out when he  compared the Supreme Court’s decision striking down the Defense of Marriage Act to the Dred Scott decision.

Dred Scott is considered the worst decision ever by the Supreme Court, and it’s easy to see why. It held that African Americans, whether slave or free, could not be American citizens and therefore had no standing to sue in federal court.

Dred Scott held took away citizenship rights from free men, but John Eastman thinks that states not being able to deny rights to gays is equal to the federal government denying rights to all citizens who are black. Can he not see that in Scott the Court denied a group of citizens equal rights, and in the DOMA decision they granted equal rights?

Well, of course he can’t. Because he can’t see things from the gay citizens’ point of view. He doesn’t see DOMA granting or restoring rights– he sees that he is losing something he used to have, namely, that the state enforced his bigotry against gays and oppressed them and denied them rights. He’s mad that gays get to be like him. In the zero sum world he perceives, gays having equal rights mean he’s lost his right to be treated better than them by the state. And for that he is the Asshole of the Day.

It is John Eastman’s first time as Asshole of the Day, though one of many for whining about how other people getting married is an affront to their rights.

Steve Beshear, Asshole of the Day for May 9, 2014

by TeaPartyCat ()

After a judge said Kentucky had to recognize same-sex marriages from other states, as they recognize all other marriages performed in other states, the attorney general refused to defend the law in court. And that could have been that.

But then Gov. Steve Beshear stepped in and hired attorneys to defend the state’s refusal for him. And on what grounds does he want to keep the ban in place? Because gay couples can’t conceive children naturally:

Beshear’s argument to the Sixth Circuit echoes claims made by many other states defending marriage bans. Notably, because same-sex couples cannot “naturally procreate,” they are “not similarly situated to man-woman couples” and thus do not deserve the same benefits of marriage. Same-sex marriage, the brief argues, is a “new right,” so the state’s ban does not violate same-sex couples’ equal protection when it comes to marriage. But Beshear applies these assumptions in a new way: because same-sex couples do not contribute to the birth rate, it’s not economically beneficial for Kentucky to recognize their marriages.

“Though there is a cost to Kentucky by granting tax and other benefits to man-woman couples, a stable or growing birth rate offsets the cost,” the brief argues. “Only man-woman relationships can naturally procreate, and only those relationships, therefore, are afforded the state sponsored benefit.”

As arguments for denying people rights go, this is a pretty poor one. And it falls apart quickly.

If he and Kentuckians really believe this, then of course they would only grant the right to marry to couples who can have children. They wouldn’t let just anyone get married. That would mean:

  • No marriages for people beyond childbearing years. Sorry straight 60-year-olds– living in sin is your only option as Kentucky won’t recognize your forbidden love.
  • Fertility tests prior to getting marriage licenses. If either the man or woman is unable to have children, then they cannot marry, because there’s nothing in it for Kentucky.

But of course Kentucky does no such thing. No state in the nation refuses to let different sex couples marry for any reason assuming they are of age. So this isn’t about the economic benefit to Kentucky; it’s about bigotry. And whether Gov. Beshear is himself a bigot or seeking to be reelected by bigots doesn’t matter. And for that, Steve Beshear is the Asshole of the Day.

It is Steve Beshear’s first time as Asshole of the Day, but one of many, many winners on the topic of gay marriage.

This decision is bigger than the previous one, but we’re assuming Gov. Beshear will still fight it even though the writing is on the wall for discrimination against gays– I mean why not milk a few more months of hate while you can, right? Asshole.
