Hey, Buttars, Let The Kid Decide What He Wants For Himself, Okay?

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

Did you see this YouTube yet! It involves the latest comical statement from America’s most famous super-homophobic state senator, Chris Buttars of Utah: “I meet with the gays here and there. They were in my house two weeks ago. I don’t mind gays. But I don’t want ’em stuffing it down my throat all the time. Certainly not in my kid’s face.” Ha ha “they were in my house two weeks ago” might be better than the sexual double entendre that follows. Saw a few of ’em in mah cupboard and had to lay a few more traps; got ’em good ‘n’ scared for now, but they’ll be back. [Think Progress]

Hey there, Wonkeputians! Shypixel here to remind you to remember our Commenting Rules For Radicals, Enjoy!

  • bored with gravity

    I have no words…. you just can’t make this stuff up.

  • MLHencken

    HIs name is Buttars. That is all.

    Remember, it’s only homosexual if the tips touch.

  • memzilla

    His homophobia is explained by what the kids in back in grade school must have nicknamed him back in the day, what with having the word “butt” in his name and all.

    True homophobia is directly proportional to the number of unintended homoerotic double entendres one can make in a single statement, so WIN for Chris Buttarstick!

  • chascates

    Stuffing what down where?

  • Gopherit

    So the gays were sticking it in his kid’s face and stuffing it down his throat at his house? Does he have a playroom? And getting your kid involved? That’s all kinds of wrong, senator.

  • Crank Tango

    Dr Fuhnke?

  • SayItWithWookies

    Didn’t his mom teach him not to talk with his mouth full?

  • RoscoePColtraine

    So he hates sucking dick, but is ok with taking it up the ass? His silence on the issue of buttsecks is deafening here, AM. I. RITE?

    Old, wrinkled closet cases are eeeewwwwwwww, also.

  • Sharkey

    He’s not gay, he’s just bi-curious.

  • Lascauxcaveman

    “But I don’t want ‘em stuffing it down my throat all the time,” he said, exasperated, when his wife caught him in the act the third time this week.

  • NixonNow


  • Hooray For Anything

    What exactly were they doing by “stuffing it down his throat?” Forcing him to watch Glee? Criticizing his wardrobe? Taking poppers and dancing to Lady Gaga all night in his living room?

  • Extemporanus

    “Go get Buttars.”

    “I have to hurry. I have a cab waiting.”

    “Go. Get. Buttars.”

  • Sharkey

    He just doesn’t want the gays taking over the railroads, steel industry, and aerospace. And you know what else? Broadway.

  • Cicada

    Why is it that these old homophobic guys just can’t get enough of talking about the gayss and their disgusting, horrible, perverted sex practices and how said practices are getting “stuffed down their throats”.

    Here’s a hint Senator: stop clicking on those links from Manhunt. It really helps with the whole “yucky gays shoving their cocks in your mouth” problem.

  • ManchuCandidate

    Now we know who the author of this Onion gem was…


    Child fucking bukaki in UTAH?????????????

    The old man sounds like he’s had too many shoved down his throat over the millennium. Also.

  • CapnFatback

    They were in my house two weeks ago.

    Buttars could tell because when he came home, the living room furniture was arranged according to the principle of perfect feng shui and the TV was left tuned in to The Real Housewives of Orange County.

  • magic titty

    So…that’s not Creed from The Office?

  • CapnFatback

    How old is his kid? 46?

  • Graphictruth


    Never has one of my t-shirts been more appropriate.

    Please steal this idea. No really, please. (the linked size works really well in a blog entry, no problem using just the image, either. :)

  • RoscoePColtraine

    Who was it, oh I think it was Yukon Cornelius who said it best, “You eat what you like, and I’ll eat what I like.” It might have been followed by a WAH-HOO!!! if I’m not mistaken.

    Stop-action animated children’s Christmas specials from the 60’s had insidious hidden messages, indeed.

  • Min

    “But I don’t want ‘em stuffing it down my throat all the time. Certainly not in my kid’s face.”

    I would have to agree. Seeing that kind of thing could warp a youngster’s mind. Just the thought of it has warped mine.

  • leftcoaster

    I like how new legislation in Utah is run by the Mormon Church before it’s passed into law. And how everyone, from the lawmakers to the reporter, just accepts this as routine.

  • V572625694

    Please, [re=464162]Graphictruth[/re], this is not a commercial site.

  • Potater

    A Utah politician? Agrees with the LDS church?

    Get outta town.

  • the problem child

    Just don’t be “acting out” and he will support gay rights not to be discriminated against in housing and employment.

  • user-of-owls

    [re=464164]RoscoePColtraine[/re]: Oh, thank Gog! I was waiting for any chance at all to link to this review of Rudolph. The review is hysterical, but the comments are flat out off the charts. Here’s a tease from the review:

    I think ‘dentist’ is supposed to mean that he is homosexual. The guy that cuts my hair (Hi, Len!) is a super amazing guy, but he is gay and he talks exactly like Herbie does, so it seemed that using ‘dentist’ was a way to put one over on the sponsors and the government. Take that, President Reagan!

  • user-of-owls

    [re=464179]the problem child[/re]: See, he has a problem with the gays who are ACTING out, but are really still in the closet.

  • Sharkey

    [re=464185]user-of-owls[/re]: That was quite enlightening. The review of Inglorius Bastards was good, too. As was the public Amazon wish list :)

  • you cannot be serious

    [re=464128]Crank Tango[/re]: He just blue himself.

  • Mr Blifil

    Something tells me perhaps he does want them stuffing it down his throat. Like, all the time.

  • geminisunmars

    And his all time favorite movie is “Last Tango in Paris”.

  • Neoyorquino

    Deceptive MSM editing. The raw footage contained his full comments: “I don’t want ‘em stuffing it down my throat all the time. I want them to start gently, and then, with a steady rythym, gradually build up speed. That’s a homosexual lifestyle I can swallow.”

  • user-of-owls

    [re=464203]Sharkey[/re]: I didn’t read that one. Actually stumbled on the site searching for a Yukon Cornelius image. The comments are what really made me guffaw.

  • AxmxZ

    “They were in my house two weeks ago.”

    *puts face into hands a la Jon Stewart*

    Go ooooooooon…

  • AxmxZ

    Geez, Buttars, if you don’t want to eat dicks all the time, then take a break or something. Go without dick-eating for a day or two, let your jaw rest.

  • Oldskool

    I hope his alarm company is videotaping whatever goes on in his house, especially two weeks ago.

  • magic titty

    [re=464217]geminisunmars[/re]: Whose isn’t?

  • glamourdammerung

    [re=464136]Sharkey[/re]: He is not gay, he is just really into guys.

  • geminisunmars

    [re=464249]magic titty[/re]: True. But he feels special affinity. After all, there was a call-out just to him, by name.

  • glamourdammerung

    [re=464171]leftcoaster[/re]: It is even better when you consider the Mormon’s beliefs about blacks.

  • Hunger Tallest Palin

    But I don’t want ‘em stuffing it down my throat all the time.

    Damn right! Every day between 5.00 and 5.15 he stops gobbling knob and sucks on a Ricola instead.

    From his wikipage:

    Buttars is also a recipient of the Boy Scouts of America’s Silver Beaver award for distinguished service to the BSA.

  • Extemporanus

    [re=464217]geminisunmars[/re]: And this is his favorite scene —> [re=464141]Extemporanus[/re]:

  • artpepper

    They were in my house two weeks ago.

    First you have some innocent sleep overs; next thing you know, some guy is stuffing it down your throat.

  • Lascauxcaveman

    [re=464185]user-of-owls[/re]: Heh. That’s an awesome review/comments. Greatly improved my evening at work. Thanks.

  • geminisunmars

    [re=464284]Extemporanus[/re]: I bow to your encyclopedic knowledge.

  • Extemporanus

    [re=464303]geminisunmars[/re]: President Obama? Is that you?

    I bow-chicka-bow-wow right back at’cha!

  • geminisunmars

    [re=464307]Extemporanus[/re]: Sending me off to bed with a chuckle. Soon as I finish this last ciggie. Michelle sends her regards to you.

  • Daveislikelol

    Well, he’s a Republican, ergo he is gay. And they’re never the nice, consensual kind either. I bet he’s all about the rentboys and what he can stuff down their throats, in his house.

    Boy Scouts? per-leeese.

  • Lutipold

    “I just don’t want their lifestyle stuffed down my throat!” he said while having worked towards legislation to force a lifestyle upon people.

  • Lazy Media

    Oh, hamburgers, if the gays come over to the house again, Mom and Dad are gonna ground me but good.

  • bitchincamaro

    “I’m not ready to propose legislation. I wanna’ sit on it a while.”

  • hunter.blatherer

    Just watch, the Mormon “church” is going to be a more effective advocate for gay rights than the Human Rights Campaign. I know that’s not saying much, but still…

  • Bearbloke

    Buttars has an interesting connection to “stuffing it down my throat all the time” at the Utah Boys Ranch…

  • Sharkey

    [re=464228]user-of-owls[/re]: Teenage girls (women?) …

    You were searching for a Yukon Cornelius image, why? Ack, ya know what, I don’t freakin care, just keep your talons sharp and the paychecks will keep flowin.

  • canadasteve

    I don’t mind straight people, as long as they act gay in public.

  • Can O Whoopass

    And yet, he changed his name from Chris ‘Crisco’.

  • Gayer Than Thou

    Something is seriously wrong with America if that dried-up old closet case is getting it stuffed down his throat on a regular basis and I can’t give it away. When oh when will health care reform finally pass so that we can have mandatory socialized gay sex like any civilized nation?
