Who's a maricón?

Right-wing blog rallies to Escobar's defense after eyeblack stunt

by D'Anne Witkowski - SGN Contributing Writer

A few weeks ago I was sitting around trying to think of something cool and hilarious to do and I came up with the idea of writing 'You are a faggot' in grammatically incorrect Spanish on my face. Totally original, right? I mean, who else would think of such a thing?

As it turns out, Yunel Escobar, a shortstop for the Toronto Blue Jays, did. He really wrote 'You are a faggot' in grammatically incorrect Spanish on his face and then trotted out onto the baseball field in real life.

Unsurprisingly, people noticed and it caused quite a stir, leaving Escobar suspended for three games with his salary for those games reportedly donated to the You Can Play campaign and to GLAAD.

This turn of events has folks on the anti-Gay right flamin' mad. Joseph Farah, the man behind the prominent 'birther' site World Net Daily, was inspired to respond in his Oct. 2 'Between the Lines' column, titled 'Homosexual Fascists Target Baseball.'

'Are Mom and apple pie next?' Farah's column begins. 'Those may be the next targets of the homosexual fascists - who are like the anti-American poofy sect of the Taliban.'

That's right, folks. A grown-ass man writes 'You are a faggot' in grammatically incorrect Spanish on his face and yet Gays are the bad guys here. Personally, I have nothing against moms - heck, I am one myself - and my wife makes a pretty amazing apple pie. Oh, wait. That probably falls under Farah's definition of homosexual fascist activity.

'PINK-SHIRT GESTAPO'
Comparing Gays to the Taliban is a nice touch. Getting offended because a baseball player writes 'You are a faggot' in grammatically incorrect Spanish (I cannot emphasize that enough) on his face is totally comparable to, say, the destruction of the World Trade Center and the murder of thousands of Americans.

Farah also throws in a Nazi comparison just for good measure when he refers to Gays as the 'crude, vulgar, name-calling, arrogant pink-shirt Gestapo.' My guess is that Farah is not trying to be ironic when he accuses Gays of name-calling.

Oh, and Gays are also worse and more oppressive than Castro.

'[Escobar] probably thought once he left Fidel Castro's island paradise that he would be able to speak his mind, joke around, and not fear the thought police,' Farah writes. 'Was he ever wrong.'

Yes, poor little Escobar, coming to America only to get called out for writing fucked-up things on his face.

Farah honestly doesn't see what the big deal is, since 'faggot' is 'used far more often by homosexuals than by heterosexuals.'

'Should non-homosexual Americans be fined, suspended, and humiliated for a remark that wouldn't draw a second glance in most homosexual bathhouses?' Farah writes.

Granted, I haven't spent much time (none, actually) in Gay bathhouses (then again, Farah is the one positioning himself as the expert here, not me). But I suspect that if you walked around with 'You are a faggot' written in grammatically incorrect Spanish on your face in a bathhouse, you would most certainly draw a second glance. Probably even a third or fourth glance, especially if you wrote it on your penis instead.

'Has anyone ... picked up a 'Gay' newspaper lately and seen the kind of obscenity they portray and the filthy language they use?' Farah writes.

Honestly, I don't know what the fuck he's talking about - but he can go suck a bag of dicks.
