It was on this date in 2009 that one of the regular features on this blog that you TransGriot readers have come to know and love is my weekly Shut Up Fool awards in which I shine a bright spotlight on hypocrisy, stupidity, and jaw dropping ignorance.
The inaugural fool I selected as the Shut Up Fool Awards weekly winner was FOX Noise’s Juan Williams
The weekly SUF feature grew into the Shut Up Fool of the YearAwards that I reveal on New Year’s Eve, and the upcoming Shut Up Fool Lifetime Achievement Awards.
During Oscars weekend I select five people or groups and retire them from weekly SUF award consideration unless they do something so breathtakingly jacked up I just have to call them out on it.
But let’s get to this week’s anniversary edition fool, shall we?
Honorable mention number one is every conservafool who spoke at Rep. Steve King’s (R-IA) Freedom Summit.
Honorable mention number two is Sarah Palin. The 2010 Shut Up Fool of the Year winner not only killed her 2016 GOP presidential nomination chances with a rambling disjointed speech, after holding up a Ready For Hillary car magnet, the pro-Hillary PAC raised $25,000, enough to qualify Palin for national finance chair status.
Honorable mention number three is a local one for FOX 26 ‘News’ stenographer Damali Keith, for two transphobic reports this week that repeated the discredited trans bathroom predator lie and the lies of the HERO opponents with the trial about the ordinance just starting.
Honorable mention number four Pat Robertson. He advised a fiscally struggling senior to take out a reverse mortgage on her home in order to pay
700 666 Club dues.
Honorable mention number five is faith based hater James David Manning, who admitted what many of us suspected already when he stated he’d been ‘tempted by the gay lifestyle‘
Dude, you’re probably still hitting New York’s gay hotspots to chase the boys. Somebody please take a photo of this closet queen out and about in the gayborhood.
Honorable mention number six is all the University of Michigan frats and sororities involved in #CrimingWhileWhite and destroying two ski resorts.
Honorable mention number seven is Shepard Smith, who is whining about FOX Noise not being considered a legitimate news outlet.
When you network admits it is a propaganda arm for the GOP, orders its predominately blonde female on air talent to wear short dresses that if they sit wrong will confirm what genitalia is between their legs, and has NEVER won a major journalistic award in over 20 years of operation, and over a decade of surveys has proven that FOX Noise watchers are the least informed people in the US, deal with it.
If you want to be considered a serious news guy, leave FOX Noise.
Honorable mention number eight is Texas State Rep Don Huffines, who is trying to tap into his inner homobigot and file unjust legislation to roll back LGBT human rights laws in the Lone Star State.
Somebody needs to make sure this Teabagger isn’t doing any wide stances in state capitol bathrooms.
Honorable mention number nine is Ben Carson. He continues to be the frontrunner for the 2015 SUF of the Year award and coon it up for his conservamassas at the FreeDUMB Summit by putting a new twist in their tired cake analogy by claiming that anti-gay marriage bakers would poison the cake.
Honorable mention number ten is 2014 SUF of the Year winner Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), who parted his lips to say that God would punish America for the jacked up diplomatic relationship between Netanyahu and President Obama.
He also kept the momentum for a repeat SUF Of the Yerr Win going by parting his lips to say after a federal abortion restriction bill failed thatRepublican females made the GOP look bad.
Dude, that ship sailed in 1964, and it’s you Republican males that have done far more damage to the GOP brand than any of your wacky GOP females like Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, Joni Ernst, Virginia Foxx, Marsha Blackburn….
This week’s shut up fool winner is Milwaukee County (WI) Sheriff David Clarke, who did his best Uncle Ruckus impression on FOX Noise and blamed the NAACP and Black single mothers for police shootings of unarmed Black men and boys.
How about putting the blame where it really lies, too many trigger happy racist cops instead of attacking single mothers .
Sheriff David Clarke, shut up fool.
