Joss Whedon has become legitimately unhinged. He made no secret of the fact that he didn’t like Donald Trump and didn’t support him for President. He bankrolled a $1 million celebrity campaign warning voters away from Trump during the 2016 election, he used social media to spread the message, and relied on his celebrity capital and A-list celeb buddies to spread the message far and wide.
It didn’t work. Trump is still president. And Joss has become completely unglued and somewhat hysterical.
He linked to a story about gay people reportedly being killed simply for their sexual preference.
Authorities in the southern Russian republic of Chechnya have reportedly kidnapped dozens of gay men in the past month and killed at least three as part of an roundup ordered against LGBT people there.
As horrific as that sounds, Whedon suggests it could soon be worse for gay people stateside.
Seriously. What the fuck, Joss? Have you lost your everloving mind?
For all his faults, Trump is actually damn good about leaving gay people alone to live and love as they please and supporting equal rights for LGBT people. He has no problem with gay people getting married, and has said so publicly. He was the first and only GOP presidential contender to publicly state that people should be able to use whatever bathroom they see fit, and he nominated openly gay Richard Grenell to become the next U.S. Ambassador to NATO!
Good lord! That’s about as far from killing people for their sexual preference as you can get without actually being gay!
But, of course, that won’t stop Joss from losing his shit on social media, because TRUMP! REPUBLICANS! DERP!
Look, Joss. I like your work. I liked Buffy and Dollhouse, and I’m a dedicated Firefly fan. I think you’re doing a great job for Marvel, and I love the Avengers movies. (Note: Agents of Shield blows goat dong, just sayin’.)
I think you’re a talented producer and entertainer, and I’ve enjoyed your work over the years.
But you need to get a hold of your quivering testes, and chill the hell out. You’re embarrassing yourself.
At no point did Trump ever exhibit anti-gay behavior. (And no, Pence doesn’t count. The “gay conversion” garbage was debunked months ago.)
And not only that, but if you’re comparing our system of government to that of Chechnya, which is led by a criminal thug, who is fond of torture, and who thinks Russia should outright attack Georgia and Ukraine and whose government claimed the alleged murder of gay men in Chechnya was nothing but an April Fool’s joke, you need mental help.
The United States is a bicameral, constitutional Republic. Chechnya is a third world shithole, partly controlled by Russia, and partly run by the criminal thug mentioned above, who seeks to impose Islamic law on all who live there, who banned alcohol and gambling and forced women to wear headscarves, and who publicly spoke in favor of polygamy and declared that lessons in the Koran and Sharia should be obligatory at Chechen schools. Add to that the absurd claim that gay people don’t exist in Chechnya, and it was therefore impossible to execute any of them, and you have shades of crazy that matched Iran’s Imadinnerjacket, who also claimed Iran didn’t have gay people.
In other words, Joss, the comparison is so absurd, that I have to wonder about your mental health.
I didn’t vote for Trump either. I didn’t support him, and I continue to criticize him when appropriate.
That’s what sane people do, Joss.
Unhinged lunatics like you, go on inane, rambling, paranoid tirades that have no grounding in reality, and make the rest of us embarrassed to be part of the same human race as you.
Perhaps you should spend a little more time condemning the government of Chechnya (such that it is) for this atrocity, and less time spewing outlandish speculations about a guy you don’t like, who happens to be the President. Oh, wait… I forgot. Chechnya is Muslim. I guess you can’t possibly condemn that, right, Joss?
Perhaps some lithium might do you good.
