Slam! Kirsten Powers takes on NYT, anti-bullying bully Dan Savage for Christian-bashing

Yes, they did.

You can read Savage’s predictable review here. Fox News contributor Kirsten Powers wonders what other reviewers the New York Times has lined up:

Twitter users, including the book’s author, agree with Ms. Powers.


That’s right. The anti-bullying bully went on an anti-Christian tirade. When high school students protested, he called them “pansy asses.” Ah, the tolerance!

And, of course he did!

Oh, sweetie. If you want to see a persecution complex, you need only look in the mirror. Ms. Powers does not let Dan Savage or his Twitter fans get away with it.

Some of his best parents are Christian, people! Case closed.

Gracious. Savage? Not so much.

Ms. Powers also points out another oh-so-classy act by the anti-bullying bully. It gets better? Not if Savage disagrees with you.

You must walk in good little lockstep, gay Americans.

And Chris Barron of the GOProud “house f**gots”, whom Savage also compared to drug-addled gays, weighs in.


Correct. We’re waiting, Mr. Savage.

    According to most liberals on every subject; debate over, you are all racist.

    • Rulz

      Once they start to lose the argument, which is often.

  • AlmaAlma

    So he has NEVER attacked Christians and Christian belief in the past?

  • $29561723

    Dan doesn’t hate Christians, he just doesn’t like them (LOL). As for the rest of religions, he “doesn’t believe” in them. I’m sure he’d have a great time in Saudi Arabia though, where he simply doesn’t believe in Islam. He might believe it when the police arrest him and he’s tortured to death for being a homosexual.
    But I’m sure that would happen here in America just as easily. Surely.

    • Luke Givens

      I’m sure you as a Christian would also have a great time in Saudi Arabia, when you are tortured to death for being a Christian. But I’m sure that would happen just as easily here in America. Surely.

      • Ben Bollman

        That makes no sense whatsoever.

        • Rulz


          Maybe he was soooo taken in by the comment, he just typed away and hit send?

          I even gave it an up.

          Can’t deny that Christians are persecuted over there.

          Only thing I can figure is that he’d be mad that Saudis don’t tolerate homosexual behaviour (although if you know where some of the private parties are, it’s shocking under happens under the noses of religious tyranny) bothers him because the Muslims in this country are trending democrat, and democrats are supposed to love each other and support progressive causes.

          But, of course, he really can’t SAY it; I mean, who wants to be an islamophobic racist, right? It is “their culture”, after all.

          You’ll still find some question marks from the progressive idealists who can’t fathom why rural stakeholders in the American Federation of Teachers or Big Agriculture still slap a big NO on so-called “gay marriage” and/or abortion on demand, or why coal mining unions are fast going sour on anti-safety protocols to save the environment.

          Then again, I’m no mind reader…..

          • Ben Bollman

            I know Christians are being persecuted over there, it’s just funny that he was trying to say the opposite because he lacks the intelligence.

      • wwbdinct

        It will happen if you and the rest of your pigressive crew get their way.

      • Rulz

        I gave you a thumbs up, Luke, because Christians in Saudi Arabia are persecuted especially if a Saudi converts.

        Otherwise, repeating exactly what someone else says for effect really shows unoriginal, amateur blogging.

  • CrossHugger

    Don’t hold your breath…he is a bully…Hey Dan, homosexuality is a sin, so is pride…Repent and turn away…Christ said your sins are forgiven but go and sin no more….there is love but find it at the foot of the cross in repentence,

  • robert anthony

    What’s next?…a domestic terrorist and radical reviewing a book by the President of the United States….oh, wait..

    What qualifications our so-called media has in deteremining one a ‘writer’, journalist, etc. and affording them an audience. Torre gets one for being black and Dan gets one for enjoying things in his butt.

  • sodakhic

    And thanks, Kirsten, for helping to generate coverage of Gosnell. Never realized abortionist kept trophies of their victims, that blood was on walls , floors, that secretaries were slicing spines.

    • Holly Fragoso

      Which is a sign and a ‘habit’ attributed to serial killers!! Masquerading as a Doctor because of their oath would that be an oxymoron??

  • JR48

    She was right the first time. Dan Savage is an asshole.

  • Ben Bollman

    It is amazing how these liberals do backflips in logic in order to defend themselves. By the way, how come we as Christians are not allowed to question the journalistic integrity of a liberal homosexual reviewing a book by another liberal homosexual atheist about our own Christian beliefs on homosexuality? Pandering to their audience, how brave of them. If the roles were reversed the outcry would be deafening.

    • Luke Givens

      Well actually considering the title of the book in question is “Does Jesus Really Love Me?: A Gay Christian’s Pilgrimage in Search of God in America”, calling the author a “liberal homosexual atheist” sounds rather ignorant on your part. Did you actually bother to read ANYTHING about this particular story before scrolling down and blathering “grrrr homosexual librul atheists bad”?

      • Ben Bollman

        You are right and I changed it, but that doesn’t change the journalistic integrity of the article or anything else I said. It is still biased about Christian beliefs on homosexuality, if you are a gay Christian you are not completely following your own beliefs.

  • Luke Givens

    Well the author didn’t really agree with Kirsten Powers, he said he was glad Dan Savage reviewed the book. But hey, of course the unsolicited opinion of some random whiner from Fox News is much more important than that of the book’s author.

    • TocksNedlog

      Yep. Everybody knows that there’s no one MORE capable of being objective about a book review than the book’s author.

    • Mike Peterson

      To be fair, as an Author its pretty dumb idea to piss off a reviewer for a major newspaper.

  • John_LC_Silvoney

    Savage’s “anti -bullying” campaign consists solely of “don’t criticize homosexuals”.

    The guy is iconic example of the soulless ,gutless ,perverted death-cult lefty hive that has a dominant influence on the culture.

  • neoface

    Jeff Chu and all people who live on the fringe of society are trying to find affirmation from society that they are normal and accepted. That’s why gangs work in their niche, and religion in general works this way, to make people feel belong and loved if they somehow felt out cased. Human nature never changes, most cults understand this and that’s how they get their follows. Sounds like Jeff Chu is seeking universal acceptance.

    And of course all religions and political parties bash others for not being on the same page as them. Full of hypocrisies all around!!!!

    • Todd Hill

      I wonder what they’ll think of themselves when they achieve majority acceptance. At that point it will turn to apathy as most people just won’t give a damn whether you’re gay or straight.

      Will the gay community enjoy being passe’?

  • Love of Country

    Kirsten’s the kind of girl who just might leave the DNC if they keep bashing her for telling the truth about things.


    Post Edit: Since I’m getting a lot different feedback (I always appreciate feedback) than what I expected (if any) I’d like to address all/most of the comments at the same time rather than one by one, if I may.

    I never stated that Kirsten will be leaving the DNC. I actually made many ambiguous remarks like “she’s the kind of girl” and “who might leave” and “if they continue” …

    But IMHO, Kirsten Powers clearly has enough character, especially compared to her peers, that she’s now growing very sick of how crooked, fascist and dishonest the Party is becoming. And presumably, if they keep bashing and threatening her just for telling the truth then eventually she’ll no longer feel comfortable living amongst them even if she’s still somewhat attached to the old DNC Party platform of yesteryear. Either way, I’m proud of her for standing up to her Party whenever she does. And thanks again for the feedback.

    • Rulz

      I’ll this an up, but I don’t think she’ll do that. For one thing, being a member of the democrat party but an open dissenter is a great way to sell your brand.

      • Zane Henry

        Is that called the “Scarborough Effect”? Actually, now that I’m reading that, no. Scarborough is a Dem in Rep’s clothing for the sole purpose of creating his brand out of whole cloth. “Look at me! I’m a (fake) Conservative who disagrees with ALL conservatives to the delight of brain dead libtards”.

    • 2ifbyT

      Even a broken clock is right twice a day. She is not even close to leaving the Dems – her opinions on other stuff are still well left of center.

    • Waynester

      She’s also the kind that blocks those who point out the incongruity of her beliefs. She whines about the Obama Administration–that she helped re-elect.

    • Kate

      To me, she seems like an old-school Democrat- left of center on most issues, but still believing in basic liberties. She seems to have avoided (for the most part) getting sucked into the hateful “Blame America for Everything” socialist crowd.

      • Love of Country

        That’s the way I see it, too, Kate. She’s a good woman and I like her. But she really had a bit of a “come-to-Jesus” moment after Megyn Kelly smacked her down regarding the Black Panthers incident at the polling station in para-military garb back in July, 2010.

        This thrashing truly changed Kirsten for the better as I’ve noticed she’s been much more honest/less disingenuous in her remarks and comments ever since then.

  • Jaynie59

    This is pretty infuriating. But not really because it’s typical. Michelle Malkin and Twitchy routinely attack, in the most viscious, gleeful ways, people like Donald Trump and Ann Coulter. Call them all sorts of names dripping with contempt.
    But, for some reason, Kirsten Powers is seen as some kind of hero because she occassionally states the obvious. Weird, isn’t it? Unfortunately, no.
    If you understand how liberals think, and you read her tweets posted here, Kirsten Powers hates Christians, too. And no, I won’t apologize for saying that, as she did, because I’m right.
    When Kirsten Powers denounces the Democrat party as the Progressive Socialist movement it has become then maybe she’ll have some credibility. Maybe. Let’s see if she still supports Hillary in 2016. My guess? Yup.

    • daeghrefn

      In the first place, I don’t think the focus is so much on lauding Powers as it is showing the idiocy of Savage and his ilk. Secondly, who says Trump and Coulter are sacrosanct? Do you get equally worked up when Conservative Goddess Coulter attacks conservatives “in the most vicious, gleeful ways”? ‘Course not.

      • Jaynie59

        Coulter never does that. She uses humor and sarcasm to attack RINO’s, sure. Just as she does to liberals.

        I didn’t say Coulter and Trump are “sacrosanct”. I won’t defend Ann’s Christie love, or The Donald’s birther fixation. But just because you have a blog on the internet that doesn’t mean you have to burp out every thought you have about people who are on your side. Go after Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. Defend a far left liberal like Kirsten Powers while trashing Ann? Bite me.

        • daeghrefn

          “Coulter never does that.” B.s. She does it habitually — and completely gratuitously — regarding one Sarah Palin. And you can only go statement by statement, not this false choice between “defending Powers” and “trashing Ann”. Bite yourself.

  • Rulz

    “@kirstenpowers10 @fakedansavage Fine, I’ll say it. Dan Savage hates Christians. So does NYT.”

    If you have to labour to say that, you’re not getting either enough of the proper information or are just in denial about what’s going on.

    “@kirstenpowers10 Thanks. I’m going to read this book now and do my own review… without reading the predictable hate from @fakedansavage”. Gay Patriot.

    Thank goodness!

  • lazypadawan

    So tiresome.

  • Marcy Cook

    Now that was funny the way Dan got his jock strap all twisted. I wish I had some popcorn.

  • Cal

    Kirsten Powers is far too reasonable a person (most of the time) to be a liberal.

  • daeghrefn

    “Fox Newsers” are liars, but MSNBC comes straight from the Ministry of Truth. Gotta love it.

  • Utahlady

    Dan Savage is a hater! It does not matter what his sexual preference , color or religion(or lack of) is. He has a deep seated hatred of anyone around him that does not look like him in a mirror or agree with everything he says and or believes. He is indeed mentally ill!
    Why Kirsten on any decent person cares what he says or does is very confusing to me.

  • DurkaDurka

    I don’t need some liberal to protect Christians once a year, while they encourage genocide and slavery the other 364 days of it. Thanks Kirsten, but please, piss off and go back to NAZI camp. We don’t need your help.

  • lainer51

    There may be hope for Kirsten, however, you can’t fix stupid and she stumped for Barry so………….. can’t get more stupid than that!

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    Between he, Fred and Michael, Dan is my least favorite Savage.

  • Tantalus XVI

    ” And I said I believed in no gods, plural, and rejected all faiths, plural. It wasn’t an attack on Christianity, singular.”

    Then why comment at all? STFU and be gay and happy. Kirsten’s right with her comparisons.

  • Kate

    Dan Savage- the gay version of Toure?

    (I’m sure they would both something racist/homophobic about this comparison.)

  • Chris Chambers

    This is why the New York Times is dying.

  • Laurel

    Why does every tribal faction within the left always demand out of one side of their mouth complete loyalty and fealty and out of the other side scream for diversity?!

  • nanaof12

    She’s a big girl! She can handle thses guys handily. I have seen her do the same on Fox! She is not a biased person.She calls em as she see’s em. She gives hell to both sides. Kudos girl!
