"I am a gay American. Also, I hate the Muslins."

Oh dear, what mixed feelings we are having upon finding out that Jim Hoft, AKA The Gateway Pundit, AKA The Stupidest Man On The Internet, is a card-carrying You So Gay! On the one hand, we do not come to act all high 'n' mighty 'n' liberal, and suggest that somehow Hoft is not a real gay. In fact, we bet he is doubleplus good at suckin' the peen, or at least we will charitably suggest that he is.

We also do not come to suggest that his piece for Breitbart on Monday, in which he, coming out as a gay man, reacts to the horrific Orlando shootings, comes anywhere but directly from his heart. Because here's why:

I came out in the 1980s to family and friends during the AIDS epidemic. I saw a lot of friends get sick. I saw a lot of friends die. I went to a lot of funerals.

It was a scary time to be gay. [...]

But last night at least 49 gays were slaughtered at an Orlando club. [...]

I can no longer remain silent as my gay brothers and sisters are being slaughtered at dance clubs. [...]

Dear God, please no more death.

That is all valid, heartbreakingly so. But do you see all those ellipses? That is where the epic shitstorm of stupid exists, the part where Jim yanks the crown off Breitbart's Milo Yiannopoulos's head and establishes himself as, officially, the Stupidest Homosexual On The Internet.

[wonkbar]<a href=""></a>[/wonkbar]Around the country, LGBT Americans and allies are seeing that, ON TOP of how the killer Omar Mateen seems to have been motivated in part by Islamic extremism, he was obviously primarily motivated by anti-gay hatred. The ISIS shit is kinda tacked on at the end, quite frankly. Hell, there are reports that Mateen checked out several other gay establishments before choosing Pulse, the gay club he shot up. He hated gays, specifically.

Jim Hoft does not see that. He only sees ISIS ISLAMOJIHADI-AYIIIIIIIEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!! Claiming that his people, the gays, need to "come home" to Donald Trump and the Republican party, he says this:

Despite this obvious Islamic attack, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are still in denial.

And this:

After the deadliest Islamist attack on American soil since 9-11 Barack Obama blamed hatred and guns. His inability to called the attack what it is – Islamic jihad – has progressed from denial to psychosis. It’s never been more apparent than Sunday, when Barack was comparing the Pulse club attack to a movie theater shooting by a schizophrenic, that our poor president has lost his own grasp of reality.

Jim then posts a tweet from Sally Kohn, saying that she "blamed all religions." Wonkette readers are invited to read Kohn's tweet with their brains and their reading comprehension skills, to see if that is what Kohn said:

As we said, Jim Hoft is a very stupid man.

Can we have a talk with Jim, gay-bro to gay-bro, diva gurl-friend to diva gurl-friend? Sally is goddamned right. She did not blame all religions, and she did not blame all of any particular religion. (That's what Jim Hoft is doing re: Islam.)

[wonkbar]<a href=""></a>[/wonkbar]The truth of the matter is that the people in America who are completely evil toward ALL MUSLIMS tend to be the very same people who are evil toward ALL GAYS. Likewise, Americans who hate LGBT people are usually motivated by conservative extremist religious belief, whether it's Christian, Muslim, Jewish or the God Hates Fags sector of the Flying Spaghetti Monster church. (Tsk tsk!)

Who are those Americans? Why, some of them are in Jim Hoft's Big Gay Comments Section, sharing their #feelings about Jim Hoft's Big Gay Article:

  • "Meh.

    Democrats killing Democrats is the best news in weeks."

  • "There is no such thing as a hate crime stupid. Nor should homosexuals and freaks with identity disorder be given special dispensation. So called hate crime legislation is just another way of persecuting whites and Christians. The marxists have no problem calling Christians 'homophobes' 'haters' 'extremists' etc. But the slimes get a pass. As your euoropean heroes would say; Bugger off you twit.'"
  • "to the truth..sodomites have to repent just as islamists do. both are enemies to the GOSPEL and the USA.. now you want to come here and guilt trip decent folk.. we tried to warn you about those folk..but y'all tormented Christians like the muslims do..
  • "so now we are to be selective in our facts? that is evil.sodomites are Anti American...and it is important the nature of these folk and their activity.ALL TRUTH must be examined.those folk were worshiping their god of death and the god of death showed up. my only dog in that fight is if they were saved by JESUS before they died.. otherwise this is a waste of time."

They seem nice, and there are many more where that came from. They are the people Jim Hoft has given a home, at his dumbshit blog. And they have some blood on their hands. They are part of why Jim Hoft is grieving right now, and he doesn't see it. He'd rather scream about the jihadi menace and let people call him a dirty faggot in the comments.

Like we said, we do not doubt Jim is a real, bona fide, three-Michelin-starred gay man, and we are certain his feelings of mourning today are genuine.

But God, what a fucking moron.

Guys, it's been one more shit day in a shit week in the fifth shit month of another shit Trump year. Which is why I need to remind you that it's not ALL shit out there! Oh, sure, it's MOSTLY shit, but you know what isn't shit? YR WONKETTE, and the strange community of strange internet people who have made getting through all this shit a bit more tolerable, that's who and what. Which is why you should give us money, so we can keep whanging away at the walls of shit with our shovels and laughing at the shit getting all over, because one of these days we will get it all cleaned up or at least not be up to our waists in shit, and we can all laugh about what a crazy fight it was, as St. Molly Ivins always kept reminding us.

In case you're new here, let me just remind you that Wonkette literally got me, Yr Dok Zoom, out of what wasn't quite poverty, but was pretty much paycheck-to-paycheck desperation. I started reading the site shortly before Barack Obama was elected, began commenting sometime in his first term, and submitted a story tip to Rebecca a few months after she bought the site for 47 dollars and a sandwich (I now understand it was a bit more than that). It was Memorial Day 2012, and she wrote back she was busy with some "stupid thing I have to do for some muneez," but would I like to try writing a blog post myself? "I understand if you say FUCK NO. But maybe you are thinking FUCK YES?" And then she warned me she paid only in Ameros. I did, the post was forgettable but OK, and then I wrote a thing (borrowed from now long-lost comments) that went semi-viral, and suddenly I was that hottest thing in publishing, a freelancer!

In less than a year, Rebecca asked you all to buy me to be your very own pet blogger, and my life suddenly became incredibly good, like as good as an Abba song. It's as good as "Dancing Queen." Thanks to the timing of the whole thing (and to Barry Obama and Nancy Pelosi), I actually had health insurance for the first time in years, a not inconsiderable thing. And you had an Editrix who was not working 12 hour days six and a half days a week and drinking too much from stress. Your continued donations helped hire Evan full time and Robyn and Bianca part time and a whole raft of freelancers, and now Rebecca is down to eight-hour days, five and a half days a week, and drinking because there's a madman in the White House and everything's terrible.

There is a very normal article circulating on the internet right now by a fella named Don Boys (that's not the joke, the jokes are coming), who is both an insane batshit preacher, and also an insane batshit former member of the Indiana House of Representatives. (Also sometimes he blogs at the Daily Caller about how Mike Pence really went balls deep into the gay agenda when he swore in that insane batshit gay guy Rick Grenell as America's ambassador to Germany.)

This article, of course, is about Pete Buttigieg, because what are anti-gay buffoons obsessed with right now? Pete Buttigieg. Boys (still his name) is primarily concerned not with the simple fact that Buttigieg is gay, but with how gay Buttigieg really is. IN THE SEX WAY!

Well, Don, since you asked!

Shall we dive into this thing without the proper prophylactics? We shall.
