Kuhner: They’re Gonna Burn Us at the Stake!


Jeffrey Kuhner, a columnist for the Moonie Times and a first class nutball, went on Janet Mefferd’s show and struck the persecution pose, claiming that the “gay gestapo” will make sure anyone who criticizes them will be “burnt at the stake” and have their careers destroyed. But first, they engaged in what passes for witty banter among the wingnuts:

Mefferd: I love this line, the left got so mad at you for saying this, you say, ‘the last thing Wisconsin needs is Barney Frank in a dress’ and I thought, who is that insulting, Barney Frank’s manhood? I’m not even sure. Aren’t they transgender-friendly, why are they mad about that?

Kuhner: He’s married now and I’ve issued a challenge to Barney Frank. I said, Barney, the purpose of marriage is to have children, now if you and your male husband or wife, I don’t know how to put this, your male partner, if one of you can get pregnant because now they’re in the honeymoon phase, they’re lovers, I said if one of you can get pregnant and you can pull off a miracle I will openly support gay marriage. So I am waiting for a miracle from Barney.

Mefferd: That’s very magnanimous, well good for you.

How terribly clever.

Kuhner: There’s nothing tolerant about it, there’s nothing inclusive about it, there’s nothing compassionate about it. They preach an intellectual, moral totalitarianism. Either you accept homosexuality or you are burnt at the stake, professionally your career will be finished, and they will do everything possible to destroy you. Well to me, that’s not America.

So unimaginative. The gay gestapo isn’t going to burn you at the stake, they’re going really old school — they’re gonna feed you to the lions. Isn’t it amusing how the same people who are still complaining that gay people aren’t thrown in jail for being gay are the ones crying persecution?

    Hey Kuhner, Frank is in his 60’s, and presumably so is his partner. Straight couples in their 60’s who get married aren’t expected to bear children, so are their marriages illegitimate?
    That smell of smoke is not stakes ready for ignorant bigots, it’s your own stoopid, burning everything around it. Aaagh! Teh stoopid! It burnsss!!!

    Ah, yes, the Gay Gestapo. Who can forget the story of when the real Gestapo discovered the secret annex where Anne Frank’s family had been hiding, and wrote a stern editorial rebuking them and their gentile supporters?

    That is how it happened, right?

  3. Christoph Burschka says

    Is it even entering their walnut-sized brain that the term “Gay Gestapo” makes precisely as much sense and is precisely as offensive as “Jew Gestapo”?

    Don’t see what the big deal is. Just get Larson to exorcise the gay demon. And then move on to President Obama. You’d think a true patriot would do that for free. Perhaps he should exorcise Romney first. But that might be risky. Romney might just be an asshole without the help of a demon.

    Fischer and his cronies tout some book written by some guy who wrote that the Gestapo and all of Hitler’s top people were gay based on evidence obtained by thorough extraction from the author’s arse. I cry bullshit though, if the Nazis were all gay, they’d have better taste in uniforms (and probably wouldn’t be throwing gay people in concentration camps either.)

  6. Randomfactor says

    Meatlump looks crazier than Howard Dean on crack.

    A shotput toss to the head will do that to a guy. Well, that and sharing half his brain with a gay golem.

    Fortunately, he can’t actually VOTE for Romney, not being registered in his home state.

    Well, because

    a) Being transgender-friendly is not the same as being transgendered.
    b) Being gay is not the same as being transgendered.
    c) Barney Frank is not transgendered, nor does he ever engage in cross-dressing to my knowledge, so he’s no more likely to wear a dress than Jeffrey Kuhner presumably is.
    d) Being gay does not make a man into a woman, or a woman into a man, which is what Kuhner was actually suggesting, and
    e) Even women– trans or cis– do not fucking wear dresss all of the time. Some don’t wear them at all.

    All of which would be obvious to someone whose understanding of gender is more developed than that of a five year old (“Boys have penises, wear blue, and play with trucks! Girls have vaginas, wear pink, and have babies!”) but sadly this describes neither Kuhner nor Mefferd.

    I find Meat Loaf’s endorsement of Mittens to be disappointing, especially since I LOVE his singing voice (well, when he still had a singing voice–today he seems to relie more and more on background singers) and when he sings anything written by Jim Steinman… Epic. That said, This is man who built his musical career on lusty songs about youthful rebellion and making out in the backseats of cars; yet, he’s signing on to a party that stands in direct opposition to those ideas. Maybe he’s getting old and crotchety, maybe that rural Texas upbringing is finally kicking in, or maybe he’s always been a hypocrite who plays one ole on stage and another in “real life.” Who knows?

    They preach an intellectual, moral totalitarianism.

    Also, in most western countries, you’re forced to embrace the totalitarian notion that murdering your mother in law in order to avoid dreadful family reunions at christmas is a bad thing. And no one dares to complain about this blatant moral tyranny.

    There should be a rule that you’re not allowed to claim that a group of people who historically have be burnt at the stake are going to burn you at the stake until they’ve actually got out the rope and matches.

    “Maybe he’s getting old and crotchety, maybe that rural Texas upbringing is finally kicking in, or maybe he’s always been a hypocrite who plays one ole on stage and another in “real life.” Who knows?”

    From what I’ve read about him over the last twenty or so years, I’d say he was born a prick.

  12. says

    It’s weird, because when I think of historical cases of people being burned at the stake, seems like the people doing the burning don’t tend to be secularists of any stripe.

    “I said, Barney, the purpose of marriage is to have children…”

    So he’s saying that limp-dicked old me and my post-menopausal girlfriend have no reason to get married?

    Yet these people are the same ones who get all gooey and sentimental when a pair of 90-somethings get married in their nursing home…

    So let me get this straight; It is his right to preach from the pulpit that homosexuality is an abomination, to prevent homosexuals from having the same civil marriage rights, to allow the discrimination of homosexuals in employment, to do all the other things to prevent homosexuals from becoming accepted citizens and participants in our civil secular society, but if his opponents disagree with him and actively

    The complete post. (Fat fingers and a laptop with a touch pad don’t always get along.)

    I think the current crop of fundamentalist christians think that if their right to persecute others is diminished it means they are being persecuted. If they suffer economic or social reprisals for promoting unpopular beliefs, they are being persecuted.

    As has been said many times, ‘the stupid, it burns.’

    I read this as he thinks gay people want him to be gay. It seems unlikely but as a Kinsey 2 (look it up) I only get to go to the meetings every other month. Is recruitment going this badly guys?

    “He’s married now and I’ve issued a challenge to Barney Frank. I said, Barney, the purpose of marriage is to have children… I said if one of you can get pregnant and you can pull off a miracle I will openly support gay marriage. So I am waiting for a miracle from Barney.” Or from Newt Gingrich??

    “Either you accept homosexuality or you are burnt at the stake, professionally your career will be finished”. I could be mistaken but, if you have been or will be burnt at the stake your career is not near the top of the list of your concerns.

  18. markr1957 (Patent Pending) says

    I haz vasectomy and Mrs. r1957 haz hysterectomy – it would truly be a miracle if she somehow got pregnant – does that mean our marriage is void? I am 100% certain that if 2 men or 2 women anywhere get married it will not affect my marriage in the slightest!

    The only thing burning around here is teh stoopid!

  19. Big Boppa says

    Either you accept homosexuality or you are burnt at the stake, professionally your career will be finished, and they will do everything possible to destroy you.

    I can understand his concern. Nothing puts a damper on the old career like being burnt at the stake.

    The gay Gestapo? Weren’t the Nazis persecuting gay people?
    And “burning at the stake”? Wasn’t that something that Christians did?

    The irony…. It hurts!

    billdaniels, the innertubes are yours.

    Thank you very much for shining the pure light of reason into the dank, dark shadows of idiocy and fear.

    woob-woob-woob nyuk nyuk nyuk!

    Mr Wrott: Sointantly! Thanks.

    Mr Hugo: According to a book I read–I think it was the Pink Triangle by that scum Scott Lively–in Nazi Germany there was a continuing battle between the super-macho-gay SS and the effeminate other gays. The effeminate ones were the only ones sent to the concentration camps. The macho ones ran the camp. In my opinion, if Hitler had been gay, he certainly didn’t come across as super-macho. It must have been very confusing for gay Nazis.
