Obama phones Collins, praises
him for admitting he´s gay

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Joe Picard

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 4/29/2013 10:17:00 PM

President Obama called the NBA center Monday evening to express his support and said he was impressed by his courage. President Obama telephoned professional basketball player Jason Collins on Monday to congratulate him for coming out as the first openly gay player on a major U.S. sports team. According to a White House aide, the president called Collins Monday evening to express his support and said he was impressed by his courage. Collins, 34, is a veteran NBA center who played for the Boston Celtics and Washington Wizards during the 2012-13 season. He is currently a free agent.

Stunning. Absolutely stunning. This is that important to get a phone call from the president??? You would think 0bama had more important things to contend with right now. s/o He is a national disgrace and an absolute embarrassment to this country.

I bet Barry also wanted to know what Collins was doing Friday night.

A lot of us already know that Moochelle is Barry´s "Beard" - a woman who poses as a partner or wife to a Gay man so he appears to be a normal heterosexual so he can fit into society better. It was Rev Wrong´s specialty to fix up Gay members of his church with ugly but eligible women to fulfill the role of a "Beard". Barry looks and acts like he has a touch of Lavender. No surprise that he would call to praise a black sports figure who outed himself as Gay. Too bad Barry wants to hide behind a beard. Otherwise why is this story even news?

Pretty ridiculous how the media are playing this up all evening. You´d think this guy found the cure for cancer and simultaneously eliminated the US national debt.

I thought the objective was to normalize such relationships and make them common and unexceptional. So why all the absurd testimonials to his "courage"? Is there no end to this constant barrage of propaganda and proselytizing?

Obama is all tingly about this announcement.He lives for the day when he can come out of the closet himself and make the same announcement. "America´s First Gay President!" He will be on all the magazine covers. What progress we have made! First non citizen president. First half-black president. (Clinton was the first!) First Muslim president. (Hmmm, note to self: Wait a couple of years after the gay announcement before making the Muslim announcment. It will get better coverage then!)

Let´s recap shall we?

We have a president that couldn´t make time to go to Baroness Thatcher´s funeral, but who can make time to:

1. Golf, golf, golf, and golf some more.
2. Attend Planned Parenthood Gala and end his remarks with "God Bless You" to an organization that engages in the systematic, contract killing of babies in the womb.
3. Can call up a mediocre NBA basketball player because he decides to let the entire world know that, in addition to basketball, he´s a rump ranger.

This, my fellow conservatives, is America´s "light unto the world," our representative to the world. Repulsive and appalling.

It appears to be important, and I´m tired of living in the closet. I want to be free, to be who I am, to be proud of my self. So here goes ... I´m a heterosexual. I feel so much better now you all know. I have loved women ever sense I could remember. I was born this way. I remember watching Peter Pan and how Tinkerbell aroused me. I was only six or seven at the time. It´s not just me either. My accountant is a heterosexual too. So is my car mechanic. Blah, blah, blah.
Who cares? Grow up. Nobody wants to know what others do with their tinker toy. These are the most insufferable, boring people in the world. How is this news? How does this rate a call from the President of the United States. The world has gone mad.

It´s bad enough he´s destroying the country. Does he also have to treat the presidency as another segment of Entertainment Tonight? His values are askew in so many ways it´s mind-boggling. I guarantee conservative Christians and left-wingers are on the same side here - both couldn´t care less, so what, besides rubbing elbows (an ugly thought) with another media/sports celebrity is this all about (besides his own latent...etc.)?

Too hard to top some of the comments above. We tend to be comical about something so dreadful, sinful and shameful because to see it for what it is, is too painful and disgusting.

God struck down cities for this in the Old Testament.

#44 and 53 sum up the situation pretty well. One day, Collins is up, but at the end, Tim Tebow will be at the right Hand of Jesus for his beliefs and faithfulness.

At this point, we are beyond help and must pray for mercy!

Single-handedly, Barry is redefining the traditional basketball terms of:
- "man-to-man"
- "pick-up game"
- "shirts and skins"
- "Get in his jock"
- "backdoor play"
- "one-on-one"
- "double team"
- "easy score"
- "reach around foul"
- "press"
- "swing the ball around to the other side"
- "deep penetration"
- "cross-over move"

Hey, I´m only limited by L.com´s word limit here.

Butt seriously, Barry can´t wait to get Jason and Reggie in for some "two-on-one". Ugh. Mooch is getting a new wig, boob belts and a 3 month vacation featuring nightly bonfires on hundred dollar bills for allowing this.

Surely this part-time federal worker has exceeded all his predecessors employees by not just having ´brushes´ with evil, but by his fully ´embracing´ it. There is a pox on this country that this individual merely symbolizes. For ANY official of the United States to applaud something which the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, unequivocally states as being a sin of degenerate evil, is beyond the pale. This man, and his entire charade as pResident, will be judged harshly by God. If America can survive this plunge into extreme liberalism, these years will be referred to as the worst reign of liberal idiocy in American history and an example for generations to come of just how stoopid liberalism really is.

Enough already with the self-congratulatory back-patting (or should I say butt-patting) on the part of pols like the odious Obamas.

Really, how much "courage" does it take for anyone to "come out as gay" these days?

Answer: Zero. No one will attack this man, either verbally or physically.

Nor will his career suffer -- on the contrary, his employers will now fear taking any kind of negative action against him, even if he does a terrible job.

# 11 The majority of Americans have no idea that Obama
was raised by a transvestite nanny during his formative years in Indonesia.
Amazingly , many biographies and newspapers like the NYT, USA Today , UK Mail,
Baltimore Sun et al. actually reported the transvestite nanny story .
Despite those single sentences ,
Barry´s very bizarre and warped childhood is papered over
by the same media that spent days
on a prank Romney played in high school.
Americans do not know that Barry and his cross dressing nanny
slept in the same bed for years.
When a young boy is forced to share a bed
with an older gay man who sometimes dresses in drag
, ..for years .. he cannot possibly be well adjusted and normal.
Unless he´s had years of therapy. And even then...
His ex nanny now goes by the name Evie , but, when
he/ she raised Barry , he went by " Turdi ".
Evie / Turdi has told many interviewers :
´But he did see me trying on his mother´s lipstick, sometimes.
That used to really crack him up.´
“When I’d fetch him from school, his friends would mock me and
shout ‘banci, banci’
( a street name for transgenders ) ...said Turdi, ..
“His friends would call him names like ‘Barry Negro’
when they lost a football match, ..."
His pet was an orangutang named Tata.
It just goes on and on and on.

Hey, fellow conservatives, let´s stop biting at obozo´s ankles like small pug dogs.
Our task #1 is to educate low-informed who are not reading lucianne and not listening to Mark Levin. And the only way to do it is to demand from the conservative leaders, names like Sarah Palin, DeMint and Congressional Tea Partiers, to work hard to create conservative mainstream media - local newspapers and TV stations. Raising funds, urging Kochs and Trumps to invest....
Scolding leftists here gives us some ventilation relief, but unfortunately, zero result! Commies don´t care, they will continue their "transformation".

Hey #62 you forgot over the back foul and between the legs dribble...LOL. Seriously why is what Collins did so courageous? I for one do NOT care what you do in the privacy of your own home but there in lies the rub. The whole LGBT community seems to think that it is celebratory when they "come out of the closet" What they won´t get through their thick skulls is that the majority of American could care less. Now for our president to come out and call this man to praise him is not only in keeping with the Odumbo logic but it is nothing more than pandering. What´s next Collins at the White House. Watch for it folks it just might happen.

O must believe this is a perfect way to divert our attention and concerns from the important things in our country - Benghazi, the economy, that stupid so-called health care act, and on and on. I´m truly sickened to think of him calling this basketball person and praising him for announcing he is gay - who cares! Sexual orientation should be private. Under O, our country´s morals and ethics continue a downward plunge - so very sad.

Like most things here, I am preaching to the choir. How can this guy be compared to Jackie Robinson? Jackie Robinson was prevented from playing a sport because he was black, a situation he could not change and could not hide. This guy has not been prevented from doinfg anything, infact he has had a twelve year career. The only thing he wants to do is tell us all openly his sexual preference. Unfortuantely, his preference has beciome his defining characteristic and this is why he is the anti-Robinson. Robinson wanted to play because he was a ball player. Sue he knew the first balck ball player came with responsibility but he was still just looking to play ball. This guy just wants to be known as gay. Basketball doesn´t play into it.

I don´ follow basketball, but it seems to me that a 34 year old player is basically at the end of his career. The article stated he was a free agent. My tin foil hat has me wondering if Collins made the "gay" announcement to insure that he would be picked up by a team. After all, if no team signs him then they will face the fire storm of being homophobes. He now has a contract in the bag, so to speak.

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

Sheesh! Talk about a complete ingrate... Many people suspect that the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) instigated an over the top paramilitary confrontation with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy at the behest of Senator Harry Reid especially since the new BLM director, Neil Kornze, was an aide to Reid. So how does Harry´s son, Rory Reid, thank the BLM rangers for putting their lives at risk over desert tortoises that are being euthanized by the Feds? Why, he slams them as "losers" on Las Vegas television station KSNV where Rory serves as a commentator from the left. You can see Reid in

In fact, since 9/11 extremists affiliated with a variety of far-right wing ideologies, including white supremacists, anti-abortion extremists and anti-government militants, have killed more people in the United States than have extremists motivated by al Qaeda´s ideology.

Sylvia Mathews Burwell, President Obama’s nominee to lead the country’s health care overhaul, remains entangled in a lawsuit brought by shareholders of MetLife accusing her of misleading investors as a director of one of the country’s biggest insurance companies. The federal lawsuit, filed in New York, says the company used a Social Security death index to stop making payments when beneficiaries died, but the company wasn’t as diligent about using the database to track deaths of its policyholders, which triggers payouts, the lawsuit said. Last year, a judge refused to toss a federal lawsuit against the company, including claims against Ms. Burwell

The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings.
