What exactly is wrong with a man going into a men's room
looking for anonymous sex?
Why is it illegal?
Egregious crimes have been committed by uncountable numbers
of our high elected officials that have resulted in the death, dismemberment,
immolation, starvation and poisoning of millions of people, and so far not
ONE of them has spent a minute behind bars. Few have even lost their jobs.
But one guy goes for a quick weenie wank and from our duly
elected representatives and the pimp media erupts a deafening ubiquitous
What's most frightening about the Larry Craig debacle is not
about getting hit on in the crapper, it's that there are actually POLICE hiding
in toilets everywhere, waiting to bust us.
Think about it -- next time you go pee in a public restroom.
My advice is to hold it 'til ya get home. Not worth the risk.
Odds are there's a cop in there, hanging out (!) -- just
waiting to slam the cuffs on some poor slob -- like us.
This country's Gestapo doesn't stop at snooping on emails or
eavesdropping telephone calls, or spy video cams.

What scares ya?
That Craig might have been looking for some?
What's the big deal?
Here's what scares me.
That every goddamn place we go, there's a cop, or a camera.
That under the lie of some loonie War of Terror, we are
being surveilled and spied upon, literally everywhere.
And, get this straight -- this means YOU. And they want
you to KNOW it.
Especially if you are UnWhite.
Here is a section from the transcript of the interrogation
after the bust.
The Cop says: "I just, I just, I guess, I guess I'm
gonna say I'm just disappointed in you sir. I'm just really am. I expect this
from the guy that we get out of the hood. I mean, people vote for you."
Did ya get that?
"I EXPECT this from a guy . . . out of the HOOD"
The COP says he EXPECTS this from an UNWHITE person, but not
from a nice white guy, a SENATOR forchrissakes.
He EXPECTS it.
I have heard not one word about this from anywhere.
Sharpton? Are you awake?
The Press is positively enthralled with Craig's sexuality,
but not one peep about a cop blatantly and publicly proclaiming his fundamental
racial prejudice, proud of his pattern of racial profiling.
As for his fellow senators, do you think they would be
treating Craig like Typhoid Tom if this wasn't about faggots?
Men are supposed to fuck WOmen, hookers, young girls, their secretaries, other senator's wives -- whatever. That's
Senator David Vitter and who knows
how many others admit to seeing the DC Madam and her stable. Hey thass OK. Its
just Men being Men.
There's a littttle Strom Thurmond in alla us boys, ya
But Craig -- uh oh. A faggot. Mark Foley redux.
String him up. We gotta show America what we do to Faggots
Ya do what Tucker Carlson says (on National TV, to
great applause) he did -- ya go back with a few testosterone poisoned good ole
boys, and kick the faggot's ass.
Har har har.
Now I think they got the right man, but for the wrong
I don't care who Craig licks, or where. I don't care where
he sticks any part of himself, or how.
That's up to him and the consenting adult lickorstickee.
I do care that Craig was a war-mongering racist hypocrite,
who has the blood of thousands on his hands.
A man who rushed to vote for the very spying that bit him.
He deserved to be outed as a murderer, a snoop, a gay
bashing homophobe, a willing and enthusiastic reactionary bastard.
So, good that he's gone.
But not at this price.
Because we are next.
Right now, thousands -- hundreds of thousands -- of us are being arrested, and imprisoned
by the I.C.E. for being Brown.
Right now, the president and his stooges have the power to
name us as traitors and not only bust us, but imprison us as enemy combatants.
And not just bust us, and imprison us, but take away everything we own.
Just because they think or have reason to believe us "to
have committed, or to pose a significant risk of committing" various
acts, in their SOLE judgment.
So, do you see?
Do you see that we are all walking into the toilet, every
And that we are all subject to the whims of millions of cops
who are just sitting there, hiding, waiting for us to drop our drawers?
Let down our guard for an instant?
Craig was one of Them. But he was one of Us as well.
And ya better believe it.
