Gerald Gay calls his fellow legislators “pinko’s” for not passing his misguided, North Korea-ish bill regulating the size of American flags in Wyoming classrooms, mandating their presence, and also requiring daily recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance in Wyoming classrooms.
Anyone else notice the irony of him calling people “pinko’s” and the requiring of the pledge being a big fucking deal during the red scare? Oh yeah, that’s when we inserted “under God” too. Reminder to Gerald NotGay: The people who killed this were in YOUR OWN PARTY. As Sen. Cale Case said, patriotism “comes from the heart, not the law.”
You should follow this. It’s a tumblr dedicated to the most homophobic, Islamophobic, misogynistic member of the Wyoming House. This man has actually stated that banning Sharia law is necessary in keeping with his ideal of legislating via his faith. He also wants to regulate the size of flags in Wyoming classrooms and mandate saying the pledge every morning. Kids who don’t want to are required to leave the room. Finally, he asked members of the Wyoming House to not use the word “gay” to describe homosexuality because it’s disrespectful to his last name.
He’s an all-around asshat.
And why Gerald Gay accidently advocates it:
Rep. Gerald Gay, R-Casper, introduced a proposed constitutional amendment [House Joint Resolution 8] — requiring two-thirds majority votes in the House and Senate, a governor’s signature, and a majority of those casting ballots in the November 2012 general election — that would forbid courts from considering international law or Sharia law when deciding cases.
A few well-established matters in law and practice in Wyoming will impede the advance of Islamic law for a long time to come:
1. Nobody’s proposing abolishing the Department of Revenue’s Liquor Division, the state wholesale liquor distribution center, or the Beacon Club.
2. Likewise, nobody’s out to shut down any hog producers.
3. Payday loan businesses still will charge bleepity-percent interest to customers.
4. Babes still will wear bikinis at Jackson Lake and Alcova.
5. Fools still will gamble at bingo, casinos and Texas Hold ‘Em.
On the other hand, the Wyoming Legislature appears to be succumbing to some Sharia practices:
1. Illegalizing gay marriage, and recognizing gay marriages performed in other states.
2. Not doing much about the gender-wage gap, which fits with Islam allowing both men and women to own property, but with a daughter’s inheritance usually being half that of her brothers.
3. Occasional talk about our laws coming from God. Of course, the debate persists about just what God we’re talking about.
Christian pseudo Shari’ah law? Say it ain’t so…
Rep. Gerald NotGay continues his asshattery and government interference:
House Bill 204, titled “Patriotism in the Classroom,” cleared the committee on a 5-3 vote. Its prime sponsor is Rep. Gerald Gay, R-Casper.
Gay could not attend the committee meeting.
According to his colleague, Rep. Bob Brechtel, R-Casper, Gay decided to introduce the bill after he visited a school classroom and noticed the absence of a flag.
The teacher then pointed to a tiny flag “on a toothpick” stuck on the top of the blackboard.
The bill as it stands requires only a standard-sized flag. It also requires students to recite the Pledge of Allegiance in the first period of the day.
Oh, and any student who wishes to not say the pledge is singled out by being required to leave the room quietly while the real Americans chant. Seriously. They have to leave. I can see Gerald NotGay showing up with his shotgun and yelling: “Hey, you! Jehovah’s witness kid! GTFO, you unpatriot while we chant the chant of the godly land!”
This is what we have to waste our time on. Mandating the recitation of the pledge and display of the official regulation flag of the country, whilst casting the heathen offensive ones aside. Gerald NotGay, our Dear Leader, shall carry us henceforth upon his brawny demi-god shoulders into the future.
