Yes, Houston Mayor Annise Parker called suspended “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson a “redneck wingnut.” And the Texas Democrat wants you to know she was “serious.” Because she’s, like, a leader and stuff.

It’s a good thing there’s nothing else pressing happening in Houston.

    Recall.

    • IMPEACH_BOBO

      EXACTLY RedSoloCup, with the recalls on FLEEBAGGING [email protected] lately I bet she would be gone too !! Just like the gun control FLEEBAGGING WING NUTS in Colorado who were just recalled !!! I would take offense with the word REDNECK too, WTF is a sitting Mayor doing using that F**KING word to begin with !!!!

      Why is it lately people in power think they can call white people names but they would never do it to a musIim or minorities, what a F**KING HYPOCRITE & RAClST she is !!!! We need to start cracking down on all racist not just the one the LAME STREAM MEDIA & the FLEEBAGGERS think are racist !!!

      • PatriotRG

        not just calling white people names – punched in the head in broad daylight and calling it a game, masses of black on white crime is ignored from rape robbery to murder, the lame street media ignores those stats like the plague, It doesn’t sit to well with their 1960s liberal narrative of the poor oppressed black race. In fact how about broadly 5 million white people losing their health insurance so mostly blacks without health insurance can be insured ?

          Funny… wasn’t aware a sitting US Senator was guilty of being a Cuban citizen… He’s more American than you are numbnuts..


          He gets freedom of expression,.. but apparently, an idiot liberal mayor thinks we should hold reality shows stars to a vastly higher standard, of civility and worrying about the tender feelings of a protected group,…

          Than she thinks we should hold a sitting mayor too..

          Phil represents Phil, and those who choose to align with him..

          She is by oath, required to represent ALL the citizens of her city..

          But…. like every idiot liberal on a holy war to irradicate people she hates for thought crimes, half the citizens don’t count in her world.. Just the ones who believe or submit to her harassment.

          What is it with hard left ideologues.. they somehow think the standards they demand of others..

          never apply to them..

            So, you need to make comments about “making phallic objects for men to blow on” even though they “hate gays” .. Are you a closet gay for eating a banana or hotdog? Have you used a stray? You’re sucking on a phallic object. Quite a rediculas statement to compare a duck call to a phallic device. I’ll give it to you that you ARE right about the long hair. Also, the Bible is all applicable, not just the “red words”. So when parts of the Bible talk about homosexuality, which it does, it doesn’t matter if it was Jesus, Paul or Moses. I’d assume that you aren’t married. My wife makes me dress up for family pictures often. Also, they could have been working a job, or had a standard of shaving that kept them without beards. Or the fact that as you mature you can grow facial hair better. Who cares is they did or didn’t have a beard. They also, to my knowledge, don’t use foul language. But you do, your values do not align with mine.

      Wendy Davis WILL BE the new Governor of Houston per Molly. I did meet the Mayor of DFW Airport on twitter, though.

    • LauraAndRhino

      Interestingly, I cannot register my disagreement with Molly Ringwald. So, I am commenting here, in response. You’re right Molly, Annise Parker is the mayor of Houston, TX. However, Ms. Parker’s hatred of anyone who is different from her or has a different value system because of their biblically- based beliefs. He stated his preference & his belief. That doesn’t give Mayor Parker the license as a powerful, governmental employee, who was elected by a wide variety of people, to single out whites, and those who believe that God’s living word is immutable and perfect, redneck wingnuts and add her voice to those in favor of cultural Marxism- controlling our thoughts and speech, if it doesn’t happen to be politically correct. Funny though, I don’t see the same uproar about the Muslims who believe in Islam and practice Sharia law. They kill homosexuals.

      While #PhilRobertson might have been crass & very direct, he also said that he was full of sin and that he was not there to judge anyone, but to do as God has commanded those who follow & love Christ, that is to love God with all your heart, mind, spirit, & strength. And secondly, to love others as you love yourself. He said God is in the business of judging us, that he, Phil Robertson wasn’t in the business of judging others.

      Just another thought, the current Pope and all the Popes before him, all stand in agreement with Phil Robertson. The Pope is lauded with praise, Phil Robertson is punished and told to shut up. It’s just another example of the hypocrisy and fascism of the liberals that only what they want talked about & who can say it should be allowed.

      • really?

        Sharia law does not only call for killing homosexuals, it is done horrifically as a lesson to others through, public beheading,or buried alive…nasty..I wonder what gays would think of that kind of religion,but nothing said against muslims…

An old man from out of town pulled over to ask directions, looked back and saw them hooking up to his car and thought it was being stolen. He ran back towards it, was struck and killed.

Double standards much, liberal bitches? (And by “bitches” I mean ALL liberals, male and female)

  • notenoughtime

    Think Phil Robertson can take on the redneck wingnut label and wear it well. The Houston mayor on the other hand shows little class and dignity!

    • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil ✓Mate

      Since she has never met Mr Robertson and has made that comment apparently only upon what she’s read in the last week, I think I’ll do the same.

      Mayor Parker is just another Moonbat t*rd whose views are completely irrelevant. Who cares.

  • Pat

    I CARE!

  • The Masked Avatar

    Redneck?
    Phil is beyond redneck.
    He … is … INFRA-RED-NECK!
    And he is awesome.

    • Michelle ✓classified

      He describes himself as “white trash” so I’m sure he’s not at all offended by being called a redneck wingnut. However, I thinks it’s really inappropriate for an elected official to be using those words in a public forum. A little professionalism goes a long way.

    Mayor Dumdum called a redneck wingnut a “redneck wingnut” because he’s a redneck wingnut. FACT. Mayor Dumdum shouldn’t have to repeat herself saying “redneck wingnut” ’cause Mayor Dumdum don’t give a fig about an irrelevant redneck wingnut. Why do y’all care that Mayor Dumdum doesn’t care so much? I’m serious.

    Late, late edit: Hmm. It would appear that “Mayor Dumdum doesn’t care so much” wasn’t obvious enough.

    • Calcat36

      Ok then, let us call a spade a spade. Annus is a fat, left wing radical lesbian nut job.

      • Casca

        Don’t forget ” intolerant, anti-Christian Bigot” as well

    • Red Fred

      Because she was elected to represent everyone in Houston, and her comments reflect a high level of unprofessionalism and bigotry.

      • CO2 Producer

        It’s clear that Mayor Dumdum seriously doesn’t care that Phil Robertson is a redneck wingnut–and an irrelevant one at that–since she quoted herself saying he’s a redneck wingnut, whose views, by the way, are totally not relevant. I will add that I don’t care about Mayor Dumdum enough to utter the name Mayor Dumdum anymore. I’m not joking.

    • Calcat36

      Ok, then call the spade a spade. The mayor is a radical left wing nut job carpet muncher. Whydo you feel the need to defend it?

      • CO2 Producer

        Just to reiterate, I don’t care about Mayor Dumdum enough to say her name, Mayor Dumdum, one more time. And again, I don’t get why anyone cares that Mayor Dumdum doesn’t care so much that she has to say it again.

        • Calcat36

          Did I miss the sarcasm? This has me befuddled: I don’t get why anyone cares that Mayor Dumdum doesn’t care so much that she has to say it again.

          Is Twitchy making her comments available to the Nation and proving her to be a biased bigot?

          • CO2 Producer

            Twitchy showed me that Mayor Dumdum seriously doesn’t think we should care that Phil Robertson is a redneck wingnut with irrelevant views. Mayor Dumdum wants us to not care about that redneck wingnut’s irrelevant views so much that she’s said it at least twice by her own admission. I hope she says it again. Not that I have any interest in what Mayor Dumdum repeatedly says she doesn’t care about or anything. I’m over Mayor Dumdum already.

          • Calcat36

            Catching on. Seems like she pulled a nikki sixx…

            She claims to be a Christian, and slamming another Christian who is actually following Christ must be very hard for her to grasp.

            Thumbs up CO2.

          • CO2 Producer

            Thumbs up, Calcat. But not once did I not say I did not care, nor that I was not serious. Just to be clear.

          • Calcat36

            Hey, I am just trying to keep up with what the screen is yelling at me eye holes! My brain tends to do its own thing, and that is why I sought to clarify. If you were not serious, and you did not care, would we be having this conversation?

            I just ask that she be held accountable as she holds others accountable. She holds a lot of crap for Phil…

        Yes, but the views of irrelevant redneck wingnuts don’t matter to her, nor should they matter to anyone else. I think that’s obvious after she repeated the assertion on Twitter.

      • Jay Stevens

        Couldn’t be that many. She got elected.

    • JamesMc

      If Mayor DumDum did not care, then why did Mayor DumDum stick her DumDum neck out to say such a DumDum thing to begin with? If the matter was truly irrelevant to Mayor DumDum, she wouldn’t have bothered with dismissing the relevance of her initial DumDum comment. Mayor DumDum seems to struggle with foot-n-mouth syndrom and should stop chewing on her heels.

      • CO2 Producer

        Mayor Dumdum said the views of Phil Robertson, that redneck wingnut, are irrelevant. That’s all she said, and then she said it again to show how serious she was about that redneck wingnut’s irrelevance. I’m done talking about Mayor Dumdum now. She means nothing to me. I mean it.

  • mickeyco

    Really shouldn’t be surprised considering the way our prog prez refers to people he doesn’t like. I’m sure the mayor is every bit as professional, gracious and dignified as he is.

    • H50 ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      Whut?

      • Calcat36

        She is a United Methodist. An alleged Christian following denomination.
        She has a domestic partner. Not a Christian belief/teaching.
        Having a domestic partner is code for being homosexual.

        Phil said he did not believe, according to his Christian belief, that homosexuality is in accordance with the Word of God.

        The homosexual mayor passed judgment and called Phil a redneck for disagreeing with her life style choice, making her a heterophobe, as Phil is a proud heterosexual.

        Phil said he passes no judgment, he just disagrees with the choice made.

        The United Methodist mayor passed judgment on Phil in a bigoted way because she happened to take his belief too personally because of her chosen lifestyle. A “Christian” passing judgment on another Christian, and according to the liberal playbook, the homosexual “Christian” is always superior in thought, the same thought liberal democrats shared with respect to slavery. Not to mention that had the republicans not fought the democrats for the female right to vote, she would be “at home in the kitchen” where her democrat masters said she belonged. January 10, 1878- U.S. Senator Aaron Sargent (R-CA) introduces Susan B. Anthony amendment for women’s suffrage; Democrat-controlled Senate defeated it 4 times before election of Republican House and Senate guaranteed its approval in 1919.

        Is that Christian behavior? Or following the Word of God?

        There is some stupid quote in the Bible about splinters and logs in eye balls. 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 still stands.

        Houston always votes (D), and Parker is a semi-liberal, but, as far as I have seen, she has never come across as a typical intolerant left-wing bigot, until now. Luckily, I don’t live in Houston, but Parker has been popular there – it will be interesting to see how this plays out for her – I have a feeling she will be forced to apologize pretty quickly.

          I see, thanks. Later in her T/L she clarified that she didn’t care what PR said. Her tweet was inarticulate, but her attitude seems to be in line with the mainstream gay community who doesn’t care and supports PRs right to free speech over agendas.

      Now if that equates to ‘We love Everybody” then you have a SERIOUS COMPREHENSION PROBLEM. Calling someone EVIL is NOT LOVE.

          • http://plumstchili.blogspot.com/ PlumDumpling

            Your voting laws just disenfranchised a retired Republican Speaker of the House. And it is disenfranchising Republican women. It was a stupid move. Now you have annoyed your own female base.

          • BAW

            No, Wright was NOT “disenfranchised.” That is what you were led to believe and what you accepted as truth without question but it is NOT what happened. Even the stories the press put out were NOT about him not being allowed to vote. It was something that happened prior to election day.

            The stories were about him going to the DPS office to get his free Voter ID (it’s actually called a EIC) without the necessary documentation. Whether he did it intentionally or because neither he nor anyone with him had the sense to realize you couldn’t just walk in and demand the free ID without the proper documentation I don’t know and don’t care. Either way it was just a show and nonsense.

            It was reported that he and an “assistant” would return on another day with his birth certificate and if he was then qualified he would have been given his EIC. You aren’t given one just because you say you want one, you get one if you do not have any of the other legally acceptable forms of Voter ID.

            Even if he didn’t, if he showed up at the right polling place on election day (which given his inability to follow the rules he might not have) he would have been allowed to vote even without any ID. He could have cast a provisional ballot – that’s the law. And the provisional ballot law has been the law in Texas since before it was part of Federal law.

            I am a woman. I have been voting in Texas elections for decades. I know how it works. I have seen illegal voting but I have never seen anyone refused their right to vote. You may be foolish enough to believe the left’s lies but don’t speak for Texan women. We have not been “disenfranchised” – we would not be “disenfranchised.”

            While you’re “annoyed” Dumpling, Texan women like Texas men believe in election integrity. And we support Voter ID to insure that our votes count. We don’t fall for the lies of the left. That is your problem.

            Wendy Davis tried to put on a show too because her name was different on her driver’s license and her voter registration but she signed an affidavit and she voted. You believe whatever nonsense you choose but the majority of Texas women are smarter than that, tyvm.

            Do you know anything about Wright? The Wright Amendment? John Mack? Why Wright left Congress? It was funny when the press reported the story and referred to him as the “respected” former…..

            Do you have any idea how many people actually applied for and got EICs? In other words, how many eligible Texas voters didn’t already have ID.

            Of course you don’t because facts and reality mean nothing to a mindset that is based on nonsense, talking points, and lies.

            Last count I saw, it was no where near “thousands!” As I recall it wasn’t even approaching hundreds.

            Your side lost this argument years ago in Crawford v. Marion County Election Board. And your position has only weaken since then. But go on pretending and lying to yourself. It makes no difference to anyone else.

            I am sure you can supply me with all the numbers. We shall see. I think I will be cheering as Texas turns maroon and then blue. It is inevitable. You all have annoyed and stomped too many people.

          • BAW

            It was in early October that the DPS reported they had issued less than 20 EICs statewide. And I believe they’d started issuing them back in June. They’d opened some DPS offices for special Saturday hours just to issue EICs and sent out mobile units. I’m not sure they’ve updated the information but it will not have changed a lot. Simple truth is almost every eligible Texas voter has an ID. We almost all drive you know. Not a lot of mass transit in Texas. All those thousands you claim will be “disenfranchised” are as imaginary as the Texans you claim have been “annoyed and stomped” on by the right. We are the right.

            Wendy Davis lied and claimed to be conservative on many issues to get elected to the State Senate. She has been exposed now and not just for her extreme pro abortion position. It’s highly unlikely she can even get re-elected to the Senate much less statewide. But don’t believe me, send her your money. She represents your values and you should support her. Keep hope alive.

          • http://plumstchili.blogspot.com/ PlumDumpling

            If Wendy does not win this time, and I think she may win, she will win the next time. Texas is going blue and soon. Why do I think so? You are and will be annoying and/or disenfranchising many women, Repub, Dem and Independent. Not a good thing to do. Women vote in greater numbers than men. Shoot yourselves in the foot instead. There will be less damage.

          • BAW

            I have no idea what you are talking about. But I can tell you for a fact, the way the left and the press represent things in Texas are far different from the way things actually are in Texas. We will see.

            When I want to know about Texas, I read Texas sources.

            I will tell you one thing. Texas used to be number 4 in the states with the most STDs competition. Since you closed the women’s clinics, your state is burning. And there is a gonnorhea out there that antibiotics do not touch.

          • BAW

            Whatever Dumpling. Reading over this thread it occurred to me that there’s a particular sort of supporter that showed up here which leads me to believe there’s a reason.

            And the fact is while as a Texas voter I’ve never paid a lot of attention to Mayor Parker since I don’t live in Houston, I now have good reason to oppose her if she decides to run for higher office. I now have a good example of why she does not represent Texas or Texas values. I’m sure I’ll find more if need be. But opposing concealed carry was enough to defeat Ann Richards (and she was a decent governor and funny as she could be). So whatever your hopes are for Parker, I hope you aren’t too invested in believing Texans will make it happen.

          • http://plumstchili.blogspot.com/ PlumDumpling

            I have no hopes for Parker. My interest in Texas only stretches so far. I have my own circus to look after.

      “For there are eunuchs who were born thus from their mother’s womb, and there are eunuchs who were made eunuchs by men, and there are eunuchs who have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven’s sake. He who is able to accept it, let him accept it.”

            Nonsense. There is nothing to be saved from. God loves me absolutely. Everybody goes to heaven.

            Man is correct. As a guide to moral living, the Bible sucks the big badoodie. I am a religious Christian. I differ from my fellows in that I have actually read the Bible. If you followed Biblical moral principles, you would be arrested.

    AWH yes redneck the new racist word used to describe conservative white men. Something on the level as the n-word.

  • really?

    And the reason she inserted herself into the controversy unnecessarily is what? Is this woman hard up for publicity?? Most Texans would probably relate more to Robertson than this mayor. How did a democrat get elected in Texas anyways?

    Ah, yes. There’s more of that “love and tolerance” those liberals are always telling others to practice.

    I’m so glad that I don’t have the misfortune of having this woman as mayor of my town. I’d be greatly embarrassed to be represented by someone with the maturity of a 13-year-old.

  • Jm1965

    The black mayor of Philadelphia went out with a group of other racists during the 2012 campaign and shouted down Romney when he visited west Philadelphia. He heckled Romney for visiting black neighborhoods during his campaign. Sadly, those poor people have voted for the same party that has kept them poor for half a century and they shout down the white man who wants to help them lift themselves out. Mayor nutter made it clear he only represented some citizens of Philadelphia…shameful.

    • http://plumstchili.blogspot.com/ PlumDumpling

      Nutter is my Mayor. He is excellent. I am very happy with him. He has been the chair of the national Mayor’s association and he is doing a good job. I am pink.

      • Jm1965

        I’m happy for you. He clearly told the white candidate that he had no business in west Phila. If that makes you happy, you must be on the winning side of his racist views. I’d find it unacceptable either way. But if you like your mayor to judge based on color, he’s your guy.

        • http://plumstchili.blogspot.com/ PlumDumpling

          Got a link? Love to hear or read the speech. I found this and it seemed appropriate to me. Could not find anything else:

          Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter (D) addressed protesters and the media, quipping that Romney “suddenly somehow found West Philadelphia.”
          “It’s nice that he decided this late in his [campaign] to see what a city like Philadelphia is about,” Nutter said. But, he added, “I don’t know that a one-day experience in the heart of West Philadelphia is enough to get you ready to run the United States of America.”
          “You want to have an urban experience?” Nutter added. “You want to have a West Philly experience? Then come out here and talk to somebody in West Philly.”
          Philadelphia’s district attorney, Seth Williams, said Romney does not understand the plight of urban America and was hiding from “real Americans.”
          “Instead of just talking at the school and getting back on his huge bus, he should come out, he should walk 60th Street, he should talk to folks who are out here that are mad so maybe he could understand how real Americans, those that live here in urban America, the issues that are important to us,” Williams said.

          • Jm1965

            He did say, “I don’t know why he’s here. He talked about him visiting “the heart of west Philadelphia”.
            He said it wouldn’t prepare him to be president. Btw, what has Obama done for education. He kicked poor black kids out of the private school that his kids attended to appease the unions. But what did mayor bitter mean by “the heart of west philly”? What demographic does he mean? Talk about code. A sitting mayor heckling a man for visiting “the heart of west Phila” is just as inappropriate as the Houston mayor mocking the white people of her town with derogatory terms. Feel free to pretend it didn’t happen that way. And pretend black panthers didn’t intimidate voters and that precincts didn’t shut out white voters and end up having 100% votes go to Obama. Party and race first, right?

          That is not what he said in the clip I posted. Please link me to a place that says that or the speech. I cannot find it.

        Do not ever call a lesbian a pansy to her face, or you will be picking your teeth up off the floor.

    hmm some one doesn’t have any aspirations to be re elected does she ?

    • DrCaligari

      I don’t think this will make one iota of difference as long as she’s doing her job properly.

  • http://about.me/vaticanlokey Vatican Lokey

    So the Mayor of Houston said some things she believes about this Robertson fellow. He said some things he believes as well. It is their right as Americans to free speech. What I fail to understand are those who claim the Mayor is intolerant of Mr. Robertson while supporting the intolerance he expressed for the gay community. What’s the difference?

    Um. He is a red-neck wingnut and indeed who cares what he thinks his crazy god thinks about gays?

    Well you wingnuts obviously, but people who matter don’t care.

      Of course not. Don’t you know that only conservatives are worthy of free speech?
