Video: “Sideshow Bob” Elaborates On His Vicious Homophobia


That’s right, according to “Sideshow Bob,” it’s all about “blood transfusions,” “sodomy,” and being “worried about this guy whose got eyes on me.” Can we say “he’s got issues?” Uh huh.

Now, back to sanity: Sen. Mary Margaret Whipple (D-Arlington) replies to Marshall’s rantings: “I think modern day Virginia has no room for that kind of homophobia…people who are willing to be that patriotic, to serve their country, shouldn’t be questioned in any way.”

By the way, since when did “Sideshow Bob” become a medical and/or epidemiological expert? Last I checked, you didn’t have to be gay in order to have various diseases that would make blood donations risky. That includes HIV/AIDS, for which many incidences of transmission in the United States are heterosexual in nature, and for which the majority of infections in the world as whole are heterosexual in nature as well. But, of course, that’s not what this is all about for Bob Marshall and his ilk. It’s raw anti-gay bigotry, nothing more and nothing less. The question is, why don’t we treat people like Bob Marshall as a blatant, outright bigot, who should be shunned by everyone and not treated as a serious member of polite society?  Where, for instance, is the condemnation from Gov. Bob McDonnell? RPV chair Pat Mullins? Rep. Frank Wolf? Perennial Senate candidate George Allen? The silence is deafening.

    Silence from McDonnell is not deafening. This morning’s RTD quotes the governor as saying that while he disagreed with the repeal of DADT, Virginia would obey the law. So he’s cut Marshall off at the knees on this one.

  • Jim B

    There are probably a lot of Virginians that disagree with that nut case, but their silence especially at the voting booth allows people like many of the republicans to spew their hate.

    The men like Marshall and Eugene along with others who create the most wild gay porn and scatological offerings are really sick individuals, if not groups. From what has been a fairly constant stream of men screaming homophobic hate using heated and detailed sex descriptions and talk and then being caught in gay sex is very common.  Whether it is in a mens room stall or photographed with a luggage carrier or stopped for a traffic violation with a gay hooker, or turned in by the “deep” massage guy and a whole lot of preachers repenting after the organist learned something interesting these people almost always are people of power using that power to make laws, rules and regulations to “control” gays.

    For years the LGBT community has called them self-loathing gays, using their public or religious power to try and control their own gay life.  The failure is they can pass all the laws along with hell fire and damnation from the pulpit they want and it won’t change who they are. They hate themselves so much and spend a lot of time and hate against the very community they belong to.  And in the end they will be outed, becoming the butt of jokes because they are so hypocritical.

    When will Marshall and Eugene break?  Good question.  I know any self respecting gay guy would never bend over in front of them in the shower. You never know when these men who are pretending to be straight will crack.

    I hope everyone is tired of hearing Delgaudio refer to Transgenders as IT and tired of hearing Marshall bash gays in the military.  

    I actually served in the US Army, was a volunteer, and would have no problem being in a fox hole with a gay soldier.  We all knew gay soldiers, and when I was a peacekeeping officer in Egypt, we had them there as well at all ranks.  They served with great honor.  

    All Americans need to be treated equally.  As the candidate for Supervisor in Dulles District in Loudoun, I will defend gays and transgenders, make sure they can’t be denied a job on the basis of sexual preference, and make sure they receive full marriage benefits.  It’s the correct American thing to do.  

    No more ethnic bashing of hispanics.  No more gay bashing.  No more bashing of Islam or people of any faith.  

    Civil rights must be at the heart of governance.  Most Republicans are not bigots.  They are as good and true as any Democrat or Independent.  What’s wrong with the leadership around here?  

    Time for politicians and bullies like Delgaudio and Marshall to stop behaving like bigots.  Grow up, guys and be a man.

    Larry Roeder, candidate for Dulles District Supervisor


  • Yes, this Howie Lind. Wow, where do they GET these people?!?

    Senators Webb and Warner on “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”

    In this shame-filled lame-duck session, the Democrats in Congress have been jamming through huge pieces of legislation at break-neck speed before the “adults” take over in January.  These newly elected members from the Nov. 2 “shellacking” (Obama’s word) would not be voting for any of this junk, including overturning the current – and functioning – law of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” that restricts gays and lesbians from openly serving in our armed forces.

    Of note is how the two US Senators from Virginia, Jim Webb and Mark Warner, reacted and voted on this very controversial bill.  They are both chickens, bowing to the left-wing, kook-fringe of the Democrat party who has been driving this repeal since 1993, rather than supporting the vast numbers of active duty and reserve military members and veterans who populate the Old Dominion.  Virginia has the one of the highest, if not the highest, percentage of military and veterans in the country.  Did Senators Webb and Warner both seek to consult their constituents in Virginia and hold hearings and demand to learn from the military leadership how this big change would be implemented?  Not a chance.  They each hid behind the skirts of Secretary of Defense Gates who “assured them that this could be done without impacting the combat readiness of the US military.”  Baloney.

    Why didn’t our former Secretary of the Navy, now Senator Webb, demand to see for himself how the Navy would implement this policy aboard ship.  Why didn’t he ask the Navy would gays and lesbians live, berth, and shower with all crewmembers?  Or would there be separate berthing areas for gay men, gay women, straight men, and straight women?  That doesn’t make sense.  Or would there be separate staterooms for all crewmembers.  That is entirely cost prohibitive.

    No, our former Secretary of the Navy, who was actually fired after 10 months on the job in 1988, did none of that.  (See President Reagan’s quote in his diary when Jim Webb resigned as Secretary of the Navy — “I don’t think anybody at Navy will miss him,” wrote Ronald Reagan.)  And what can be said for Mark Warner who doesn’t know an M-1 from a B-1?  He didn’t do anything either.

    At least they could demand that a fair questionnaire and survey be conducted.  No, they let slide the fact that only 6 percent of the military filled out and returned the survey which now everyone touts the bogus line that 70% of the military is in favor of overturning the ban.  So, 70% of 6% equals 4.2%, and this equates to overwhelming support?  Why didn’t they both force Mr. Gates and Admiral Mullen (JCS Chairman) to ask the other 95.8 % of the military?  What a disgrace.  Virginians will be sure to see that Senators Webb and Warner don’t return to the Senate after the elections in 2012 and 2014, respectively.

  • Wow, I actually agree with Red NoVA on something:

    Unless someone can do a stellar job of explaining this to me, I have no idea why anyone would propose this as a law.

    It seems to me that there should be more important issues than fighting a culture war in the military. What’s next? Are we going to dig up graves from Arlington Cemetary if we discover that one of them is gay?


    Bob Marshall only wants to propose this b/c he doesn’t like gay people. It has nothing to do with the military.
