Fuck you, Virginia Foxx

I mean, just, fuck you.
“The hate-crimes bill that’s called the Matthew Shepard bill is named after a very unfortunate incident that happened where a young man was killed, but we know that the young man was killed in the commitment of a robbery. It wasn’t because he was gay,” Foxx (R-NC 5) said during Wednesday’s House debate of hate-crimes legislation.

Shepard, a 21-year-old gay student at the University of Wyoming who was murdered in 1998, is often linked to hate-crimes legislation since his widely publicized killing was viewed as an anti-gay attack.

But Foxx said it is “a hoax” to use Shepard’s name for today’s hate-crimes bill, which includes new protections for gays and lesbians. She argued Democrats are only using it “as an excuse for passing these bills.”

  • I was raised in Winston-Salem, sad to say, and am ashamed to point out that Foxx won her job by being the comparatively reasonable Republican.

    However, I actually know a sometime politician & veteran who can someday, I hope, be persuaded to run against her.

  • Jesse Helms would be proud.

    Except he's too busy spinning in his grave!

    Ha! Ha! Ha!

  • I hope I live long enough to see us stop electing these idiots that are a national embarrassment to us as North Carolinians!
