Pastor: Dem “Shemales” Hate Real Women (VIDEO)

My new favorite Tumblr, Christian Nightmares, is taking pains to document the not-so-brotherly love of the Lord’s more zealous brethren. And thanks to them, I’ve now been acquainted with the hot mess that is Doug Giles. If you have three minutes to check out the video below, you should get to know him, too! He’s the epic new thing in political crusadin’, replete with mesmerizing MTV-style digital after-effects, a skin-tight dragon-applique henley, and action pics of him shooting a bear. Oh, right—he’s got big-league conservative media backing, too.

Giles is the senior pastor of an evangelical flock in my native South Florida called (sorry, Joe Strummer) Clash Church. And if there’s anything a soldier of salvation like Giles should be concerned with, it’s the subject of this video: “Ten reasons why I believe the dour Democratic dames dislike Mrs. Palin.”

Giles’ smiley spunk is indeed impressive: part 5-Hour Energy commercial, part Limbaugh segment, with none of that dreary Jesus talk you might expect from, you know, a keeper of lost of souls. Before he gets around to his Palin list, he squeezes in some time to happily decry “the shemales at NOW and their messengers’ ilk” for criticizing a woman “if she’s not into being a mannish lesbian.” (The visual prop for this is a before-and-after photo montage of Chastity/Chaz Bono, punctuated by several…um…awkward Giles gestures.)

Then, of course, the Alaskan red meat. First and foremost, Giles tells us, Palin’s hot and she knows it. And Democratic women aren’t. (Yeah, we might have heard that before.) But oh, the cutting analysis! Like some lovable foster-care offspring of Jimmy the Greek and Lisa Lampanelli, he intones:

…We all know how jealous and petty some chicks can be when they’re aesthetically upstaged, right?…Catfight!

Other reasons Dem women hate Palin:

  • She’s had five kids, Giles says, “and she has never considered offing any of them”—[Points to abdomen with both hands.]—”in her belly!
  • “Her husband’s not some prissy little metrosexual man-child, but an ass-kickin’ Alaskan!”
  • “The Democrats know that if she ever makes it to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, she’s going to hand the Democrats their shriveled, BB-sized cojones on a pre-market platter while the majority of the USA gives her big…ol’…standing ovation!”

Doug’s cheery message is produced by “Clash TV,” courtesy of HumanEvents.com. Ever hear of them? Human Events, a journal that’s part of the right-wing Regnery publishing empire, has been around since 1944, and its columnists include such heavyweight luminaries as Oliver North, Mike Huckabee, and Chuck Norris. Nevertheless, its longtime editor, Tom Winter, is a vice chairman of William F. Buckley’s old American Conservative Union, so they’re not exactly on the fringe of the fringe in Washington.

Neither, apparently, is Doug Giles:

IT'S NOT THAT WE'RE SCREWED WITHOUT TRUMP:

"It's that we're screwed with or without him if we can't show the public that what we do matters for the long term," writes Mother Jones CEO Monika Bauerlein as she kicks off our drive to raise $350,000 in donations from readers by July 17.

This is a big one for us. It's our first time asking for an outpouring of support since screams of FAKE NEWS and so much of what Trump stood for made everything we do so visceral. Like most newsrooms, we face incredibly hard budget realities, and it's unnerving needing to raise big money when traffic is down.

So, as we ask you to consider supporting our team's journalism, we thought we'd slow down and check in about where Mother Jones is and where we're going after the chaotic last several years. This comparatively slow moment is also an urgent one for Mother Jones: You can read more in "Slow News Is Good News," and if you're able to, please support our team's hard-hitting journalism and help us reach our big $350,000 goal with a donation today.
