‘Your Homosexual Reference Is Sick — SHAME!’

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

Dear Shit-fer-brains ....A daily puzzle here at Wonkette’s World News Headquarters is trying to figure out what the hell people are going on about, in their emails to your editors, because it’s a rare occurrence when an angry reader who stumbled across some random three-year-old Wonkette post bothers to identify whatever post was so upsetting. The link or even a vague description would help — help us laugh, we mean. But usually, we’re as confused as the furious Internet bumbler. So many invitations to “go back” to whatever past or present Communist country the reader heard about somewhere that one time, so little context. That’s why it’s always a delight to get an Email of the Day that at least mentions the offensive item!

The puzzle contained within this Letter to the Editor is to find which part is a quote from the post itself, or some source materials linked within, or just the commentary of the reader himself:

Subject: NRA Just Going To Stick Gun Stuff Into Every Bill From Now On

Wonkette – The DC Gossip:

“The last two years have been a disaster for us,” said Representative Carolyn McCarthy, a New York Democrat and a longtime advocate of increased gun control. “A lot of members are just afraid of the N.R.A.”

*Representative Carolyn McCarthy sounds afraid of the US Constitution!*

Oh good! Now they can keep their biggest secret, zombie Charlton Heston raising money for the NRA by giving out handjobs with his cold, dead hands.

*How can anyone take you seriously when you have to use disrespect for a deceased American patriot? Your homosexual reference is sick – SHAME!

Sponsored Intermission



Understandable, perhaps. But the NRA will not stop until federal law mandates that every citizen has a gun in both hands at all times.

*That is also stupid. If you or anyone else does not want a gun, then do not have one. Be sure to patronize “Gun Free Zones” where criminals know where to find helpless victims.*

The picture of Charlton Heston is also stupid; you did not do a good job adding the rifle to it. But it is consistent with the other lies you print.

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

  • thehelveticascenario

    Remember, you can choose to not have a gun, but then it’s your fault when you’re raped/killed/mugged by someone who has one. It’s in the Constitushun.

  • Voyou Charmant

    BBBBBUUURRRRRRNNNNN, you Wonkette idiots.

  • Gorillionaire

    Zombie handjobs are ghey? Man this dude has some hang ups.

  • thehelveticascenario

    Also, handjobs totally aren’t gay if you don’t look the guy in the eyes.

  • ManchuCandidate

    Get your damned homo hands off me, you damned dirty libtard!

    Note to tard boy. The photo wasn’t photoshopped. It’s from a little independent movie called Planet of the Apes.

    Quick…Hire this guy immediately…He’s fantastic

    “That is also stupid. If you or anyone else does not want a gun, then do not have one. Be sure to patronize “Gun Free Zones” where criminals know where to find helpless victims.”

    Has Layne ever said anything that funny?

  • AxmxZ

    At first I read this as “How can anyone take you seriously when you have to use disrespect for a deceased American parrot?” and found myself nodding in agreement.

  • Snarkalicious

    Should have left it at Dutch Rudder.

  • Another DC Lawyer (Again)

    Wait, if my wife (a lady person) gives me (a manly person) a hand job, does that make me gay? If I get a second one from her does it turn me back to straight? Is there anyway I can use this logic to get mroe handjobs?

  • Escape Goat Nation

    They’re only gay if you use your left hand.

  • blinky_twinkie

    You mentioned handjobs in the earlier post, and *everyone* (including blind Glenn Beck) knows that only HOMOSEXUALS get handjobs. So by saying that the NRA was going to dig up Charlton Heston and make him give people handjobs with his cold, dead hands, you were calling dead C-Hest a fag. Geddit?? And that’s just sick! — SHAME!! The N.R.A. is going to be visiting you soon, to “give you a handjob.”

    Silly Wonkette. It’s written in the REDNECK HANDBOOK that handjobs exchanged WHILE HUNTING are NOT GAY (caps exactly as used in the HANDBOOK).

  • RoscoePColtraine

    Charleton Heston. There was a man who was not afraid to take off his shirt and get oiled up for the cameras. Ladies like the image a man covered in sweet, glistening sweat I do believe!

  • Extemporanus

    [re=621359]V572625694[/re]: Gay or not, one is thing certain — Charlton Heston had a very, very small penis.

    (The really freaky thing? That’s his fucking bathroom!)

  • x111e7thst

    Silly SGCB, everyone on Wonkette knows that Charlton Heston did not get a reach-around when buttsexed. Ergo not gay.

  • Brick Oven Bill

    Barack is the one who is most likely gay. We know that Barack likes to eat lots of foods that are not good for him. This display of sensation is common in gay men.

    Now, we know that Donald Young was gay, and the choir director at Barack and the Good Reverend’s Trinity United Church. And now Donald is DEAD. The murder is UNSOLVED. What did Donald know? Did Donald have sexytime with Barry? Did this gay indescretion cost Donald his life?

  • Cicada

    I love mah dead gay patriot!

  • Extemporanus

    [re=621381]Escape Goat Nation[/re]: I prefer a variation on that technique which I’ve dubbed “The Strangler”.

    Instead of sitting on my hand to make it fall asleep — which it is, at best, for only a minute or two — I garotte my wrist until my hand turns completely numb and purplish. With it in that state, I can literally go for hours.

  • Norbert

    [re=621395]Extemporanus[/re]: That purple sofa is so gay!

  • Cicada

    This somehow proves that Charleton Heston was a gay zombie furry.

  • RoscoePColtraine

    I usually ignore your posts because I don’t want to encourage more out of you, but…

    “We know that Barack likes to eat lots of foods that are not good for him. This display of sensation is common in gay men.”

    Your word salad intrigues me. Perhaps if you could rearrange the sentence into some coherent meaning? And then provide some of your well-researched data to back up your knowledge of what gays enjoy?

  • Zadig

    [re=621357]fredb[/re]: The best part is, a few months back, the local paper (Commercial Appeal) published a list of concealed carry permit holders. God knows why, but it’s public record, so meh.

    The gun nuts freaked the fuck out, because apparently now criminals (blacks) will bust in the house to take their delicious weaponry. Apparently it doesn’t matter whether you have a gun or not, hearing someone’s full name places a magical compulsion on robbers to do crimes to them.

    [It would likely do so in a German falsetto reeking of cum and gun oil.]

    [re=621431]Jim89048[/re]: Hey, don’t knock it ’till ya try it and wind up in the hospital for gangrene and priapism-related emergency medical treatment!

  • Brick Oven Bill

    I will re-arrange the sentence, but only for you Roscoe. The following sentence is not factually accurate, as our knowledge is limited to things we see, hear, smell, touch, and taste. TeeVee does not count. But anyway, here we go. Behold:

    “We know that Barack likes to eat lots of gay men. This display of sensation is not common in food, as food does not have sexual impulses, as far as we know, unless you are eating things like live toads, which I saw once on a TV show, with a gay host, in Japan.”

  • doxastic

    [re=621423]Zadig[/re]: Isn’t indulging in robbery-fantasies the reason people buy guns? That’s like showing up to an orgy and getting mad that the host invited EVERYONE.


    The headline read, “NRA Just Going To Stick Gun Stuff Into Every Bill From Now On”

    SGCB was drawn to this article because 1). the “B” in SGCB stands for “Bill” and 2). Bill thought he was going to get stuffed with Charleston Heston’s gun.

  • JMP

    [re=621422]RoscoePColtraine[/re]: Funny, I thought stereotypically gay men were supposed to be obsessed about their appearance, instead of commonly eating unhealthy. But it is sad and predictable to see that the nutcases are spreading murder rumors about Obama just as they did with the Clintons.

  • Davidwatts

    [re=621452]Brick Oven Bill[/re]: You lost me at the faulty epistemology.

    Handjobs are gay?

    That must mean that handjobs are outlawed.

    They can have my handjob when they pry them from my cold, dead hands, fuck them!

    If handjobs are outlawed, only outlaws will have handjobs!

    Handjobs don’t kill people, people kill people!

    Regulating handjobs violates my Second Amendment right to bare arms!

    Regulating handjobs violates my Second Amendment right to bear arms (my penis is a registered weapon)!

  • RoscoePColtraine

    [re=621457]JMP[/re]: Let me see if I understand what Bill is trying to prove. Barack is gay and had gay sex with somebody, who he then had to kill in order to keep the affair quiet. He also ate the guy because he is a cannibal. The evidence is in Barack’s unhealthy diet and obesity. In Japan they have gay teevee hosts who have people eat live frogs on their program. This also proves the story of Barack’s homosexuality to be true.

    Makes sense. I’m onboard.

  • Geogre

    I think the author was upset that you outed Charleton Heston.

    Apparently, this author believes that “handjobs” are always male to male and homosexual and has never been in the Boy Scouts.

  • Geogre

    [re=621422]RoscoePColtraine[/re]: It’s pretty weird, alright.

    I think it starts off with the always-valid argument by analogy. “Barack Obama does something unwise. Gay men do this unwise thing, too. Therefore, he shares their sexual orientation.”

    From there, it goes on to try the ever popular tuquoque: “Obama’s the real gayfer, so Chuck Heston and NRA handjobs are no big deal.”

    It then adds evidence to seal the deal: “This is empirically true of gastronomes of frogs and other forms of Japanese television host.”

    It is a magnificent piece of nonsense. It should be on a poster at a teaparty rally.

    [re=621475]RoscoePColtraine[/re]: I’m still not sure if Bill is a for real crazy conspiracy theorist, or trying to be funny and failing miserably, ending up just plain confusing instead.

    …uh, could someone pick my daughter up from kindergarten for me? And send my regards to the Episcopalian Ladies’ Bake Sale, but I am not sure if the 22-caliber sport pistols they are packing really qualify as “guns” — they know I adore the peach melba, but I am going to have to choose life and limb over their well-meaning but ultimately insecure pastry table.

    That’s just life in this here America. When guns are outlawed by homosexuals, only homosexual outlaws have guns.
