Grand Old Pedophiles Lose Another One

By this point we've all heard about the tale (tail?) about Rethuglican Congressman's Mark "Love to slip them off of ya" Foley. The dude who was the chairman of the House Caucus on Missing and Exploited Children was emailing and chatting up a 16 year old male page in a way that can only be described as graphically sexual, perverted and cringe-inducing. Read the chat text and feel the douche-chills.

Speaking of Douche-chills, check out this nugget of congressional hypocrisy:
Title: To amend title 18, United States Code, to protect youth from exploitation by adults using the Internet, and for other purposes.
Sponsor: Rep Foley, Mark [FL-16] (introduced 7/10/2006)

Now it appears that the leadership of the House Republicans knew about the inappropriate contact well over a year ago and did nothing. Worse than nothing, they were probably involved in a cover-up. The cover-up is, after all, the Repiglican's sport of choice.

At least four Republican House Members, one senior GOP aide and a former top officer of the House were aware of the allegations about Foley that prompted the initial reporting regarding his e-mail contacts with a 16-year-old House page. They include: Majority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio), National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Tom Reynolds (N.Y.) and Reps. Rodney Alexander (R-La.) and John Shimkus (R-Ill.), as well as a senior aide to Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-Ill.) and former Clerk of the House Jeff Trandahl.

Taken as an isolated incident, one can make the claim that this is just one more case of a sick and delusional pedophile. Case closed. But check out this extensive list of known Grand Old Pedophiles. I challenge anyone to come up with a list of Democrat politicians, activists and appointees to rival this one. There's some weird psychological phenomenon that connects the party of hard core Christian values to pedophilia.

My own suspicion is that it has much to do with guilt. Many of these guys are attracted to the party that seeks to regulate moral behavior because they feel guilt and shame over their own moral failings. And of course, it helps that the Jesus Party have a convenient scapegoat that they can point to. "Its not my fault, The Devil made me do it."

They blame Satan for their own psychological problems and by extension, the problems of the entire world. And they think they can somehow wash away or make up for their own sins by imposing religious values on the rest of us. They fight their own demons by railing against the very same demons they see all about them. To them I say, "Physician, heal thyself." I'm sick to death of these self-righteous hypocrites trying to control my life because they can't seem to control their own demented urges.

And here's one more theory. Most psychologists and others who work with exploited children will tell you that pedophilia is not necessarily about sex, its about power. The pedophile prefers children because they are powerless and gives the pedophile an inflated sense of self to be able to manipulate and control them physically. I think its no accident that the party that wants to control what we do in the bedroom, how we love and marry, the entertainment that we can watch and listen to, and help siphon all the money and power to an a elite few, would also be the party to attract assholes who get a woody by controlling and manipulating those who are smaller and weaker than themselves.

Thank you, Mark Foley, for once again exposing the soft, pasty white underbelly of America's "Moral Values" party.

Mission Accomplished.


BooFuckingHoo!! Foley claims he is an alcoholic, as though that will excuse his pedophilia.

Whitehouse Press Liar Tony Snowjob dismisses the Foley story as "naughty emails" Snow is truly scum on shit. Whores and used carsalesmen cross the street in order to avoid being seen with this cretin.

There are numerous congresscritters and staffers who knew about this shit a while ago and engaged in a cover-up. These assholes should be voted out in November and then prosecuted.

GOPigs are scrambling for Foley's campaign money. He's got a pretty big warchest and they covet it.

Head of the Congressional Page Board John Shimkus allowed Foley to spend a lot of time with Pages, sometimes alone, AFTER the GOPigs knew that Foley favored young meat.

A Republican staff member warned Congressional pages FIVE YEARS AGO to watch out for Congressman Mark Foley, according to a former page.

New York Rep Tom Reynolds, who heads the National Republican Congressional Committee, knew about this over a year ago and still had his chief of staff, Kirk Fordham, advising Foley as recently as last week.

A poster at Daily Kos makes a good point. Just compare the response of Repiglican Congresscritters to making congress remain in session during an Easter/Holyweek to deal with the attempt to force a husband to keep his braindead wife on life support with their response to Predatorgate. Will the Pigs be less likely to interupt campaign season on behalf of live children than they were to interupt Holy Week on behalf of a braindead woman? You betcha.

Repiglicans have been bashing Democrats over their discomfort with legalizing torture, claiming that the Dems want to "protect" of "coddle" terrorists. So I think it's fair to now ask why the Congressional Republican "leadership" have been protecting and coddling a known child sexual predator for years.

What do you expect?

They're today's Republicans. Reagan Republicans are a thing of the past.

Today's Republicans are the Scum at the bottom of the barrel.

I'm so glad to be a Democrat! I think America has had enough of these lying, cheating, and predatory animals in the Republican houseparty. We've had enough of their racism, thanks to George "Macaca" Allen. We've had enough of their lies, thanks to BushCo. We've had enough of their corruption, thanks to Tom Delay. We've had enough of their anti-Americanism, thanks to Karl "the CIA-agent outer" Rove. Most importantly, we've had enough of the awful decisions made by this administration and their GOP goons, all thanks to the "decider" himself.


Lefty Metalhead said...

Oh, and Reagan GOP weren't much better with their fighting of secret wars. The conservative movement, as of November 7, is dead!

Good Riddance!

don't count out Diebold and selectively malfunctioning and understaffed polling places on Noveember 7 to help the RePigs hold on to their precious power.

Lefty Metalhead said...

I just visited several right-wing blogs, including Redstate and Instapundit. It seems as though these wingnuts are trying to blame the MEDIA. So the media is to blame? What about Foley and the GOP leadership who sat on the information? The GOP is officially out of touch with reality.

Lefty Metalhead said...

BLSABOB, that's a good point. These sex fiends will do anything to win.

BigNewsDay said...

That's funny. It's the media's fault that Foley likes little boys.

Damn librul media!

Lefty Metalhead said...

Why don't Republicans use bookmarks?

Because they bend over pages!

Ranando said...


How come not one word of this over at AZ?

BigNewsDay said...


I am one of the only left-wingers on AZ, and due to the political nature of this story, I would rather discuss it here on the BND Blog. The entire AZ team has agreed to keep politics away from that blog, and I respect that position.

Ranando said...

That's a good policy BND, thanks for the reply.

Ann Coulters bastard son said...

Yes, and Brit Hume over at Fox thinks this is just another sex scandle kind of like Clintons.

B.L. Sabob: now "completely heterosexual" said...

Reichwing Moron Mantra:

When you can't defend your behavior or policies, BLAME THE MEDIA!!

Britt Hume, like Tony Snow is just a scum-on-shit propagandist. The Repiglican party blows smoke up their asses and it comes out their mouths for public consumption. By the way, is it just me or does Britt Hume look like Herman Munster's angry little brother? The entire leadership and propaganda arms of the current rightwing are sad, demented people deeply in need of psychiatric care. They hate the world almost as much as they hate themselves and can only relieve the suffering through the subjugation of others. In a truly just world, they'd be overthrown and executed.

Foley's Attorney: "He's not a pedophile. He's an alcoholic."


Yeah, I know that whenever I get drunk, the first thing on my mind is chatting with 16 year old boys about jerking off and measuring cocks.

Who the fuck does he think he's fooling?

One of the most disgusting things I have ever seen is in Oklahoma City (which isn't surprising) and it is at the Cowboy Hall Of Fame (yes, I have been to it, unfortunately). It is a life size bronze statue of Ronald Reagan dressed in cowboy gear, I guess it's from some stupid movie. If that site wasn't disgusting enough... there was this douche bag with 3 (count them) 3 cameras. A digicam, a 35mm, and a video camera. He filled up all three on just this stupid fucking statue. I watched this guy film the statue for a long time in amazement, I wanted to fucking kick his teeth in.

Ronald Reagan is Bush's hero. Ronald Reagan is the reason this war is happening. He IS the reason the people of the Middle East hate America.

Hello B.I. and all,

If they're going to go around attacking others for not living up to their professed values, it's a damn good idea to be truthful and actually walk the walk. Logs and motes in the eye, glass houses, kettle's and pots, and what goes around eventually comes around, et al. Karma's a bitch when She finally decides enough is enough! This wouldn't have been so bad on Republicans if they hadn't been such arrogant hypocrites in order to corner the so-called values voters! Now the Two Candlesticks and Two Witnesses (Truth and Justice) are breathing fire and raining hailstones!

Christian Political Leadership, Hypocrisy, Duplicity, and Purposeful Evil

The current scandal involving Congressman Foley is merely the latest in an amazingly long list of blatant deception and duplicity by Republicans and the Christian Right in recent years. While bedeviling us all with their holier-than-thou pretenses, they consistently support and/or perform blatant greed and abominable evil. Never forget the extent of their arrogance over the last two decades and especially the last 6 years. It is beyond amazing that Christians continue to blindly support such obviously blatant scoundrels, even as they are repeatedly exposed going against the most basic of human values. The level of hypocrisy and duplicity boggles the mind. There is no longer any doubt, whatsoever, that Christianity is little more than a purposeful deception used by political and religious leaders to dupe, manipulate, and coerce entire populations into giving them wealth and power, which they always use for greed, injustice, and abominable evils.

The actions of Foley and those who covered up for him directly parallel the actions of scores of priests that have raped innocent children, preyed upon others for centuries, and had their actions hidden and abetted by the Vatican. Now, in eerie repetition of Vatican history, we have a power hungry Christian Emperor (GW) working closely with the Vatican and Judeo-Christian aristocrats to lead crusades in the so-called Holy Land. Furthermore, to leave little doubt about the reality of this assessment, the USA, as the new Holy Roman Empire, is about to legalize the torture it has perpetrated in recent years while steadily reversing many of the democratic and civil freedoms that people gained when the Vatican and royalty lost control of their European empire at the turn of the nineteenth century. Now we see them following the same old path of evil as they strive to cement the status of the USA as the latest proxy Vatican empire. Make no mistake about it, the new dark ages are looming on the horizon unless we do something proactive to prevent it.

Remember that those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it!
