Since 2010, I’ve passed out the Shut Up Fool Lifetime Achievement Awards during Oscar Weekend to not only call out fools who just have grown beyond the weekly award, but give myself something to do in the years I refuse to watch the Oscars because they have had a severe lack of melanin in their nominations.
This year I’ll be tuned in, but the Shut Up Fool Lifetime Achievement Awards will go on as scheduled Sunday night when I announce the Class of 2017 winners.
But before we get to Sunday, let’s get our usual Friday business out of the way in naming this week’s Shut Up Fool weekly award winners.
Honorable mention number one is a group award for the CPAC attendees who were waving Russian flags with Trump on them during his speech to the event today.
And these are supposed to be the intelligent conservafools. Lord help us.
honorable mention number two is Jackie Evancho who after singing at Trump’s inauguration, is now shocked that he has yanked the protections for trans kids, and is even more shocked he won’t meet with her and her trans feminine sister Juliet.
Really? When everyone was telling you not to sing at his inauguration and you did so anyway, and now you’re shocked that he won’t see you after you cave him the propaganda cover he was looking for?
Honorable mention number three is Caitlyn Jenner, who called out Trump and told him to ‘call her’ after yanking protections for trans kids.
Now Caitlyn’s azz wants to speak up after we told her for months that the GOP she supports doesn’t like trans people. You’re going to have the same success getting him to call you that Jackie Evancho is having , none.
Sit your azz down somewhere.
Honorable mention number four is the Texas University Interscholastic League (UIL), the governing body for Texas HS sports. They refuse to change their rule that would allow Texas trans high school students to compete based on their gender presentation, and now they have the situation of having a transmasculine student being forced by their rules to wrestle against girls.
He is competing in the Class 6A championships in suburban Houston.
Fix the rules UIL. Let trans boys compete against trans boys and trans girls compete against trans girls ,
Honorable mention number five is the Trump administration for pick an outrage
This week’s Shut Up Fool winner is Tampa Bay Bucs QB Jameis Winston, who opened his mouth and let something stupid fly out of it while speaking to a Tampa area elementary school.
During the 40 minute speech he said that ladies are supposed to be silent, polite and gentle. That may be the motto for the Stepford Wives in the conservafool ranks, but not during a time in which we need to be speaking truth to power in the fact of an unjust government.
Winston later apologized for the inarticulate remarks, but naw homey, you need to have several sections of seats at Raymond James Stadium and ponder the long proud legacy of African American women who didn’t stay silent about things that mattered like Angela Davis, Coretta Scott King, Sojourner Truth, Ida B. Wells, Shirley Chisholm, Audre Lorde, Congresswoman Maxine Waters…
Well behaved silent women don’t make history or confront injustice.
So on behalf of all women cis and trans, Jameis Winston, shut up fool!
