Ah, Republican hypocrisy. Ripe and pungent, flowing everywhere. While they’re flailing across the land to gin up a new moral panic over transgender people needing to pee, they’re also rushing to defend a convicted child molester who was one of their own. Dennis Hastert, form speaker, is guilty of sexually abusing children when he was a wrestling coach, and is about to be sentenced. His pals have written letters begging for leniency, and those letters have been made public, because the judge refused to accept them unless they were made openly.
So here’s the verminous Tom DeLay:
So I know his heart and have seen it up close and personal. We all have our flaws, but Dennis Hastert has very few. He is a good man that loves the lord. He gets his integrity and values from Him. He doesn’t deserve what he is going through. I ask that you consider the man that is before you and give him leniency where you can.
So we get a heavy dose of Christian hypocrisy, too. If Hastert
gets his integrity and values from Him, that really puts an insidious twist on Matthew 19:14 (
Suffer the little children to come unto me).
I also have to ask: do transgender men and women deserve what they go through?
