Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, June 18, 2019

The crescendo was familiar. The homophobic climax as forceful as ever. Again, and again, and again, it filled the Pasadena air. "EeeeeehhhhHHHHH," came the primer from Mexican national team fans. And then the punctuation: "P***!" It rattled the Rose Bowl on Saturday night, an inescapable feature of the 2019 Gold Cup's opening-night soundtrack. And in one sense, it was alarming: Here, on international television, in front of some 65,000 people, was an anti-gay slur, the Spanish equivalent of "f*****," being hurled in unison by hundreds of fans at an opposing goalkeeper.

I believe you are mistaking that with what Trump called his comments about sexually assaulting women. Yeah, banter is the word he used.

They yell that at every opposing goalkeeper, it doesn't actually matter if they're gay or not.

Ironic they yell it at opposing goalies but not their own candy-ass flop artists.

Well then I suppose it's nice for the homophobes that they get one right once in a while.

You people are nuts. Lefties are the most against homophobia while righties will call that "censorship", "anti-free speech" and "political correctness".

When's the last time you saw right-wingers protesting against homophobia or for LGBTQ+ equal rights? Never. Even gay pride parades are an evil abomination for the right.

What a joke. I see stories about homophobic right-wingers on a daily basis.

I see homophobic comments from 'left-wingers' right here on a daily basis.

Bigots wear a variety of political hats.

Senate Confirms Judge Who Attacked Roe v. Wade, Called Being Transgender 'A Delusion'

The Senate voted Wednesday to confirm Matthew Kacsmaryk to a lifetime federal judgeship despite his record of hostility toward LGBTQ rights and abortion rights.

The Senate voted 52-46 to put Kacsmaryk, 42, onto the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas. Every Democrat present voted no. Every Republican present but one, Susan Collins (Maine), voted yes.

LGBTQ and reproductive rights groups have been protesting Kacsmaryk's nomination for more than a year because of his extreme views on both fronts. Last week, dozens of human rights groups signed a letter opposing him.

Kacsmaryk fought against protections for LGBTQ people in employment, housing and health care. He called including protections for LGBTQ people in the Violence Against Women Act "a grave mistake." In 2015, when Utah passed nondiscrimination protections, Kacsmaryk called the law "a bad idea" because it suggests that discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity should be taken as seriously as other forms of discrimination. He signed a 2016 letter that called being transgender "a delusion."

Its interesting ...

If this were a bunch of White American football fans saying chanting these homophobic slurs about kickers, the DR left would be all over it ...

Instead they defend it, or a "meh" at best ...

Why?

I'd always heard about soccer players being overly dramatic but never followed soccer so I didn't care. A few months back I was waiting for my order at a burger spot and they had a game on. I was shocked at how obviously bullsh.. these claims of injury were.

On topic, #%*& these fans.

Omg, it took YouTube to learn what the word even is, the article isn't helpful whatsoever.

Mexico Gold Cup chant - I agree, the teams should have left the field.

Sounders fans do the same chant thing, except it's "you suck" or "you're an -----."

Is "you suck" a gay slur now, since the thing being sucked is a D?

The party marching in streets for gay rights is the homophobic party, and the party with priests calling for the execution of all LGBT+ people is the tolerant party.

These alternative facts brought to you by Trump's Deplorables.

If it weren't for alternative facts, they'd have no facts at all.

Thats just how insincere and hypocritical you are, you think marching in the streets is all you need to do.

Lairs and hypocrites ....

So let me get this straight, a homophobic Fat Andy Mattress is all of the sudden concerned about gay people???

Concern fail there son!

Of course he's only "concerned" because he can slam brown people.

So what have we learned here campers?

Fat Andy Mattress is slightly more racist than homophobic, slightly.
