Flotsam & Jetsam

I’m painting the spiffy new backyard studio today, so I haven’t the time to treat things on an ad hoc basis; here’s a couple things that caught my eye this morning:

First: Shennanigans!

The term “La Raza” has its origins in early 20th century Latin American literature and translates into English most closely as “the people,” or, according to some scholars, “the Hispanic people of the New World.” The term was coined by Mexican scholar José Vasconcelos to reflect the fact that the people of Latin America are a mixture of many of the world’s races, cultures, and religions. Some people have mistranslated “La Raza” to mean “The Race,” implying that it is a term meant to exclude others.

err… BULLSHIT. I may have failed third year Espanee-ol, but I totally aced Round One. You can twist “illegal alien” into “undocumented worker” to your heart’s content, but those two words: “La,” and “Raza,” have definitive meaning, unquestioned by any linguist. You can’t just be “The Decider” and rewrite your own damn dictionary to suit political positions.

Next: Tucker Carlson = Pussy; Has Been Since Grade School
A day or so ago Little Master Bowtie announced on “Hardball,” while yabbering about alleged George Michael wannabe US Senator Larry “Stallboy” Craig, that he, his pure self, had been “bothered” in a public bathroom.
(from the transcript):

TUCKER: Let me—let me put it this way. Whether he‘s gay or not actually is not our business, and I do think it‘s indefensible that the newspaper in Idaho spent a year interviewing 300 people to answer the question, Is he gay? That‘s none of your business. Having sex in a public men‘s room is outrageous. It‘s also really common. I‘ve been bothered in men‘s rooms. I think…


SCARBOROUGH: … but have you been bothered in public restrooms, Dan?

Because I know I haven‘t.

TUCKER: I have. I got bothered in Georgetown (INAUDIBLE)

ABRAMS: Really?

TUCKER: … when I was in high school. Yes.

But wait, there’s more…


TUCKER: You know what I mean? It‘s insane!

SCARBOROUGH: Was he the guy in Georgetown, Tucker?


TUCKER: No, actually. I got that—my point is—let me just say…


ABRAMS: What did you do, by the way? What did you do when he did that? We got to know.

TUCKER: I went back with someone I knew and grabbed the guy by the—you know, and grabbed him, and—and…

ABRAMS: And did what?

TUCKER: Hit him against the stall with his head, actually!


TUCKER: And then the cops came and arrested him. But let me say, I‘m the least anti-gay right-winger you‘ll ever meet…


TUCKER: … but I do think doing this in men‘s rooms appears to be common. It‘s totally wrong, and they should knock it off. I mean that. I think it‘s—I can‘t bring my son to the men‘s room at the park where he plays soccer because of all these creepy guys hanging around in there. I actually think it‘s a problem. I‘m sorry.

ABRAMS: All right…

SCARBOROUGH: No, no. That‘s fine. George Michael didn‘t think it was a problem, though, did he.

TUCKER: I think it‘s nasty.

video here.

Where’d you grab him, you evil scamp? And who was the big butch friend you sought to defend your manhood?

Of course, this anecdote brought Tuck a world of subsequent shit:

The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) today called on Tucker Carlson, NBC News and MSNBC to apologize for remarks made on Tuesday night that appear to condone violent assault.

And Carlson, a born and bred Beltway Boy, tried to talk out of both sides of his mouth at the same time:

Let me be clear about an incident I referred to on MSNBC last night: In the mid-1980s, while I was a high school student, a man physically grabbed me in a men’s room in Washington, DC. I yelled, pulled away from him and ran out of the room. Twenty-five minutes later, a friend of mine and I returned to the men’s room. The man was still there, presumably waiting to do to someone else what he had done to me. My friend and I seized the man and held him until a security guard arrived.

Several bloggers have characterized this is a sort of gay bashing. That’s absurd, and an insult to anybody who has fought back against an unsolicited sexual attack. I wasn’t angry with the man because he was gay. I was angry because he assaulted me.

No, Wimpy. Your butt covering (pun fully implied), self-proclaimed reframed for pop consumption reaction would have been entirely different if you were accosted by a chick. If that was the circumstance, the only reason you would have sought this “friend” out would have been to live out a “Penthouse Letters” fantasy about having a menage a twat.

You sought out a friend who was big and went back to have your friend kick the fag’s ass… and a little shit like you probably had to pay the dude to do it.

Turn in you balls, Carlson. You make “Silky Pony” look like Chuck Norris, even when he has his wife running point. For crap’s sake, even your name brands you a member of “Weenies International.”

Tucker = “gimme your lunch money.”

At least that was the rule where I went to grade school. You hadda punch yourself out of that bag.
