Southern GOP Wingnut Politician Calls Colleague’s Dead Son a Homo

by Ken Layne

Needs a little Perez Hilton semen drip on the fat mouth, you think?Let’s check in with the Southerners, America’s old-fashioned obese bigots. Oh, here’s one: Bill James, proprietor of a shitty wingnut website (ACORN breaks the law! criminals are Negroid!) and county commissioner in some slave-holding part of South North Carolina. During an “emotional” debate over domestic-partner benefits, Commissioner Lady spoke sadly of her adult son’s death from AIDS, and then this fat fuck Bill James leans over and says, “Your son was a homo, really?”

And then he added, “Because I’ve sucked every available dick in the South and I don’t remember him.” Ha ha not really, Bill James just said he will never apologize because homo is just what you call fags, come on, just like everybody knows that the Negro Peoples “live in a moral sewer.” (He said that, too, on the record. Ha, racists!) [Charlotte Observer via Wonkette Operative "Jacob S."]

This is my favorite part of the article:

Public reaction to James’ comment was mixed Wednesday, with some people praising what he said and others saying he shouldn’t have spoken ill of another colleague’s son.

It’s not enough to say “well, I think people are perhaps making too much out of it, he probably wasn’t trying to offend her,” no, they actually have to find people who are like “yeah! He was right to call that lady’s dead gay son a homo!”

memzilla December 17, 2009 at 1:18 pm

On The Observer’s site voting question, “Should he apologize for his asshat remark,” 32% say no he shouldn’t, which, oddly enough, is the same percentage of people who thought Bush did a fine job as Preznit.

[re=480592]Dave J.[/re]: This is balanced journalism of the highest order. Some people think teh geys and Negroes should have human rights, and others don’t. Both viewpoints deserve equal treatment! And okay, it was wrong to speak ill of a colleague’s son. But if it had been some random cocksucker off the street: have at it!

Something is queer about this story. It should have been obvious to Commissioner Lady that he meant no offense when he didn’t call her son a fag. Maybe her son was a drug abuser, which is far more respectable than being a gay.

Yikes, this is a representative writing sample from this guy’s site.

“In 1948, the group of folks were white southern ‘cracker’ Democrats passing over a more qualified Black candidate to select the ‘good ol boy’ white bubba.

In 2007, the group of folks was Black inner-city Democrats, passing over the only qualified candidate because he was white to select the Black dude.

Both are examples of Racism.”

I did like the mother’s response” “I’m not sure he understands what it means, because his values are so different from the rest of society.” Nice, subtle way of calling the guy a moran.

Of course the comments are filled with idiots defending the asshole – including one who thinks Lawrence v Texas doesn’t apply to N. Carolina.

I was going to respond, but it’s only going in a circle. I defend a fellow poster who I feel you are maliciously attaching/attaching Christians. You label us hateful names – all the while saying we’re hateful. Your pretty pathetic…but I still forgive you.

He also says he’s forgiving because he’s a Christian, but his god isn’t. WTF?

Mr Blifil December 17, 2009 at 1:55 pm

He just asked a question. So he was wearing a double layer neoprene wetsuit when he asked it. It was ONLY A QUESTION!! Alls he wanted to know was if her son was buried or cremated. Because for a necrophile, it’s not as much fun to break into a person’s home and attempt to fuck an urn full of ashes.

http://www.wcnc.com/home/related/Bill-James-response-to-Vilma-Leake-confrontation-79424342.html

Commissioner Bill James wrote the following in response to calls for him to apologize after a confrontation wtih Commissioner Vilma Leake, during which he said, “Your son was a homo?”

Vilma is a religious hypocrite.

She was married to a Bishop in the AME Zion church. This church has historically opposed homosexuality.

In justifying her position last night in public she used her son’s ‘lifestyle’ and his death from HIV-AIDS to justify voting for benefits to allow individuals to use tax dollars to engage in the same behavior that resulted in her son’s death.

It is akin to someone whose son is an alcoholic and died from the disease, using his death from drinking as justification to have the taxpayers pay for more booze.

Her position was that her ‘faith’ demanded that she do this to support her son and his ‘lifestyle’ which she acknowledges killed him.

In doing so, it is legitimate to ask her what ‘lifestyle’ and in particular whether her son was a homosexual. Her response was to threaten me with physical violence (typical for her). Of course, this isn’t the first time she has threatened elected officials. On the School Board she had a long and checkered history threatening to harm those she disagrees with.

Leake: “Don’t make me hurt you. Don’t do that to me. Don’t talk to me about my son.”

Well, if she didn’t want to make her ‘son’ an issue – why did she use him, his lifestyle and his tragic self-inflicted death from AIDS as the reason for her vote?

Though Ken’s right – North Carolina is like two different countries. You have the greater Raleigh area (Durham/Chapel Hill/Raleigh’s 11 or so suburbs) and, I’d like to think, the Wilmington area (other than the occasional creepy greedy people, Wilmington’s not bad, thanks to the University, the large film industry, the beaches – all the Northern vacationers and ghey movie people scared the rednecks away for the most part, and we even have the state’s only openly gay representative! But I digress).
Anyway, other than those pockets, NC is VERY poor, uneducated and afraid of change. The difference is disconcerting at times – you almost need a passport on road trips (not to mention a translator for the ridiculous accents).

And every letter/e-mail the commenters are posting from James makes him look like an even bigger asshole. viz.:

(some random guy writes):I sent him an email saying how distasetful and ignorant his comments were…..also saying I thought Charlotte was a progressive city…this was his reply to me…I have actually copied his email…..

Progressive? Where did you get that idea?
Homosexual conduct is illegal in NC (even after Lawrence V Texas).
We arrest 250 homosexuals each year in Mecklenburg alone for either a “crime against nature” or “solicitation of a crime against nature”….

Redhead December 17, 2009 at 3:39 pm

[re=480837]finallyhappy[/re]: The thing about the south is that, yes, not everyone is dumb and bigoted and inbred… but a fair amount are. You get pockets of relatively metropolitan areas that are not at all like that – and then huge expanses of rural, redneck, backwards areas where they are, and then some. If you look at municipal governments in the pockets of civilization, they’re not bad. When you go to the rural areas, well… and sometimes, even in one county, you can have really civilized areas and really, well, not-civilized areas.

Unfortunately, the dumb second-cousin horse fuckers (at least THAT ONE was in South Carolina!) vote too. And damn there are a lot of them.

I live in NC, not in the Raleigh area but in the foothills, and I can assure that some areas are becoming more progressive. “Becoming” is very important part of that sentence though. Change is slow but it it’s coming, we’ve gone from a solid red to a possible swing state.

I would also like to remind everyone here that dumbfuckery is not geographical. I’ve met plenty of racist assholes from northern states too.

[re=480640]Gorillionaire[/re]: I think I read some of your father-in-law’s comments there. He probably was the one claiming that if a Liberal had said this, no one would mind, and it would receive no coverage at all.

Or maybe he was the one claiming that Vilma Leake (mother of the dead young man) is clearly a “racist”, since she’s, like, black.

This “THE BLACKS ARE ALL RACISTS!” Dumb Redneck meme is *so* bizarre. At least very few of them can spell “racist” yet (e.g. “rasist”, “racsist”, “rascist”, “racisist”, etc., very similar to the spellings they invent for Fascist.)

I’m always amused/horrified by the fantasies these people have, all about the Mayhem and Destruction that will be wrought upon the Glorious White Race the moment the black and brown people get more power. I think it derives from their deep internal certainty that this kind of hatred and annihilation is what they, themselves, the crackers, actually deserve. I’m guessing they’re thinking “Paybacks are hell!”

If only.

[re=480869]Flight_Test[/re]: Agreed. Speaking as one who has often said that we’d all have been better off if Lincoln were a little bit more like Buchanan, one is forced to admit that Connecticut has its Lieberman, Minnesota has its Bachman, my native state of Iowa has Pappy Cornpants Grassley AND Steve King, Nebraska has Ben Nelson, Montana has Max Baucus, Alaska has Sarah Palin, Oklahoma has Inhofe, and let’s not even mention Utah, Idaho and Wyoming.
Hell, half the country is retarded. More than half.

North Carolina is kind of the Connecticut of the South. I sure wouldn’t let my child go to school in a state which spawned and educated George Bush and spawned, educated and elected Joseph Isadore Lieberman.

Man, that Yale must be a fucked up place. You would think that a former Price Waterhouse and Arthur Andersen man like Bill James would have graduated from there instead of Broward Community College and Flordia Atlantic.

If you guys wanted to do the whole secession thing again, I don’t think anyone would really mind up north here. Really, go ahead. We don’t mind.

[re=480908]GayInMaine[/re]: So, how’d that gay marriage work thing work out in Maine? Wasn’t there some kind of vote? From what I heard, Maine voted the same way that Bill James would.

You know, every time I forget enough of this sort of bullshit (just one example: in my home town they filled the one public swimming pool with concrete and turned it into a parking lot, back in ’61 or ’62, the spring after the court order requiring its integration; they JUST got around to building a public pool a few years ago, you know, just the 40+ years later) to allow myself to THINK about moving back home (VA, not NC, but still), the Good Lord sends an unlikely angel, like this dumb-ass cracker, (bless his cracker-ass heart), as a way of telling me, look, pal, you night want to give it another 20 years or so, you hear?

So, you know, thanks Big Guy, that’s a big 10-4, message received loud and clear…

Lest I forget, look hard enough and you’ll see that El Gordo’s photo went through the tinting process used to turn B/W shots into color. Except for this “colorization” technique, no one gets perfectly uniform, pale ‘flesh tone’ except at a mortician’s.

His skin actually a brilliant fuschia. His lips are a deliecious cherry red.

His hair? Hmmm.

You’d think that fat white male southern butt fukkers would be more tolerant of teh geyz.

BeWoot December 17, 2009 at 7:24 pm

Someone has to say it. This is not the Bill James who does that great work with baseball statistics. So don’t go switching to soccer because of this nimrod. I think his game is pocket pool.

Ha! North Carolina. Left there in ’79 and never looked back. Buncha damn hillbillies with little dick minds and pussy ass smart mouths. Of course California has those, too. Damn. Will I ever learn?

What, all this talk of North Carolina and not one mention of John Edwards and his love child?

Disappointed in y’all.
