They intimidate, says Tony the anti-equality intimidator

by Jeremy Hooper

Age 8:

Lil' Tony Perkins: I was just sitting here eating my sandwiches, and they went and complained on me. intimidation is what they do best

Principal Orak Bobama: But Lil' Tony, didn't you actually take their sandwiches away from them?!

Lil' Tony: Yes, but I said "God" a lot while I was taking them....

Age 14:

Teen Tony Perkins: I was just here dancing with my date, Mary, when Johnny went and complained on me. Intimidation is what he does best.

Chaperone Pantsy Nelosi: But Teen Tony, didn't you forcibly take Johnny's girlfriend, saying that it was to protect 'the sanctity of Mary'?

Teen Tony: Oh, yea, but...

Age 22:

Collegiate Tony Perkins: I was just sitting here admiring the pretty costumes on the stage, when the cast started yelling at me. Intimidation is what the cast of Hair does best!

School paper editor Machel Raddow: But Collegiate Tony, didn't you bumrush the stage during the nude scene and forcibly clothe all of the actors, saying that freedom of expression doesn't apply anywhere between the navel and the knees?

Collegiate Tony: Yes, but it's okay because I did so on the basis of my personal faith. My actions aren't what matter here -- their reactions are!

Age 46:

FRCFamily Research Council head Tony Perkins (or more likely his ghost writer): In a new campaign, the people of Maine Marriage Equality have decided to unleash some California-style harassment on the churches that publicly sided with traditional marriage -- Question 1. Ever the sore losers, the Left is calling on supporters to file IRS complaints against any house of worship that supported marriage as God intended it. Intimidation is what they do best, and Maine Equality is hoping to show off those talents by stripping Maine churches of their tax-exempt status.
If You Can't Beat 'Em, Bully 'Em! [FRC]

Afterlife:

Just arrived Tony: I better be right about this, otherwise I caused a whole lotta hurt for nothing!!

*It should be noted that this "Maine Marriage Equality" that Tony is referencing is not in any way connected to the official campaign, despite what he wants his followers to believe. It's an individual online effort, seeming to stem from a UMaine student Adam "Sunny" Flanders. Just to clarify.

Your thoughts

My how the bullies whine when called on their actions. They're always cowards at heart.

When is Gaggahorse going to release the names of her donors? She promised that the list would be forthcoming prior to election day, but I guess she and "brain" brown can't be truthful about anything?

I do want to see the tax exemptions for the Catholic and Mormon churches taken away.

Make them pay on all that lovely property they own if they want to play in the political field.

The sad thing is it will work as it has already proven in 31 states - their collection plates will continue to be filled and this needless battle of "us vs. them" will continue because for organizations like the FRC - fear always works when their whole faith is based on innate fear of their own God it no surprise that fear works on their followers.

Alonzo is so right about fear always working - look what it got the Republicans for 8 years - and they're starting to use it again and so many will again be duped by it!
