The 2015 NFL season kicked off last night with the defending champion (boo hiss) New England Patriots starting their title defense against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Steelers looked like they were about to get blown out early in this game, but hung in there to actually make it competitive.
But it was obvious they were missing the retired Troy Polamalu, and Brady torched their rookie filled secondary for 4 TD as they won 28-21.
As you know, I’m once again doing my NFL prognostication for this season with Mike and Eli, and we all got that game right. The fun starts Sunday.
Speaking of fun, let’s start calling out fools. It’s time for this week’s edition of the TransGriot Shut Up Fool Awards..
Honorable mention number one we go north of the border for in Canadian comic Nicole Arbour, who ended up losing a movie gig after posting a now deleted fat shaming YouTube video
Honorable mention number two is Rep. James Sensenbrenner (R-WI) who parted his lips to make the absurd statement that Planned Parenthood can’t be funded unless food stamps for children are cut.
And y’all wanna know why I despise the Republican Party and give you the side eye if you part your lips to stupidly say ‘there’s no difference between the two parties’.
Honorable mention number three is Sarah Palin for a double dip of idiocy. First for opening her mouth and saying something that wasn’t standard English at a GOP anti-Iran deal rally in Washington DC.
Then she went on FOX Noise and said that immigrants should learn how to ‘speak American.’
Honorable mention number four is Linda Harvey, for calling on the faux christians to establish gay free sanctuary cities. Yeah, that’s going to run afoul of the 1968 Fair Housing Act
Have several seats, Linda and a nice tall glass of shut the hell up.
Honorable mention number five is Clatskanie, OR police chief Marvin Hoover, who had no problem letting his inner bigot out, then doubled down on the racism after he was called on it.
Honorable mention number six is immigration judge Lorraine Munoz, who let her transphobia run amok when trans people were brought before her court.
This week’s Shut Up Fool
loser winner is Mike Huckabee. He’s going to get multiple flags off the chart ignorance. In addition to trying to pump up Kim Davis as a hero for not doing her job, he parted his lips to say that the 1857 Dred Scott SCOTUS decision is still the ‘law of the land.’
Any middle school history student can tell you it isn’t. The 13th Amendment abolished slavery, and the 14th Amendment established birthright citizenship. Those two amendments were crafted to eviscerate the effects of that horrible case. and make the newly emancipated Black folks US citizens.
The fact this racist fool is trying to run for POTUS on the GOP side and doesn’t know that is problematic on so many levels.
Mike Huckabee, shut up fool!
