Dan Savage A “Terrorist” Says Santorum-Supporting Kill The Gays Advocate



Dan Savage is a “terrorist,” claims the Rick Santorum supporting Molotov Mitchell — a right wing religious extremist, an advocate of Uganda’s “Kill The Gays” bill, a birther, a World Net Daily contributing videographer, and an uber-homophobe — in this just-released video.

In “Who hates Rick Santorum?,” Molotov Mitchell, who has been making his offensively, often false “For The Record” videos for a few years now, props up Santorum by saying “you can judge a man by his enemies,” asking, “Who hates Rick Santorum?” Mitchell answers his own question, pointing to Santorum’s enemies: “Muslims and Gay Activists.”

“Muslims hate everybody, I mean, half the time they’re bombing each others mosques,” Mitchell falsely states. But what’s to be expected from World Net Daily?

In his video, Molotov Mitchell calls Dan Savage not only a “terrorist,” but a “hollow life form,” “a filth-spewing hate activist,” “a miserable creature,” and, “a hate monger posing as a guy who hates hate mongers.” Mitchell adds, “Dan Savage infects everything he touches,” and says, “Literally, Dan Savage is a walking STD.”

“And that’s why I set up,,” Molotov brags. Molotov’s cute little domain forwards to, which currently is losing its $250,000 “money bomb” fundraising race.

Mitchell, to be fair (not something Mitchell deserves, since he rarely is,) does state some truths, but certainly not the entire picture. Like, the fact that Dan Savage apologized for his comments about GOP Senators made on Bill Maher’s HBO show, “Real Time.”

Media Matters senior editor Terry Krepel last year penned an extensive examination, titled, “Who Is Molotov Mitchell?

The lost value of accuracy, however, is much lower on Mitchell’s agenda. Then again, the willingness to smear Obama with extreme prejudice (and extreme inaccuracy) and an obsession with Obama’s birth certificate — not to mention the homophobia — makes him a natural fit at WorldNetDaily, which has been hosting and promoting Mitchell’s videos for the past year. Since then, Mitchell has been upholding WND’s tradition of lies and smears against anyone who’s not a right-winger like them — and living up to his nickname by preferring fiery, destructive vitriol over intellectual enlightenment.

“For the record”? Not so much. For the hate of anyone who dares to disagree with him or even perhaps just looks or acts different than him? Absolutely.

Molotov Mitchell states, “Most Americans believe, Dan, that marriage is only between man and woman.” Well, Mr. Mitchell, I’ve got a half-dozen nationwide, credible polls that prove you’re wrong, as we know that time after time, the majority of Americans support same-sex marriage. “And all your lies, all your hate speech and threats, can’t change that,” Mitchell claims. Well, Mitchell, all your lies, all your hate speech and threats, can’t change the truth.

In fact, not only do we know that the majority of Americans support same-sex marriage equality, but we know that support in America for LGBT rights is at an all-time high,and that 58% of Americans say homosexuality should be accepted by society. How’s that for truth?

Regular New Civil Rights Movement readers know I’ve had my difference of opinion with Dan Savage, but, as was confirmed when I interviewed Savage a few months ago, at the end of the day Dan Savage has done far more good for our community than most, and I applaud much of his work, even if some, like some of the issues Molotov Mitchell mentions — however he may have twisted them — had been better left unsaid.

Mitchell laments of Dan Savage’s “Google bombing” of Rick Santorum, redefining “Santorum,” and asks, “Why, Because Santorum had a difference of opinion?”

No, Molotov, working to deny American citizens their constitutional rights and denigrating them to the point that the youth in our community are killing themselves is not a “difference of opinion,” it’s verbal assault and hate speech — at the very least — that in many other countries would land someone in jail, and it’s committed in this country daily by hollow life form filth-spewing hate mongering miserable creatures like you.

Pelosi Delivers Brutal Response After McCarthy’s Acting Replacement Orders Her to Vacate Her Office Immediately



Within hours of Kevin McCarthy being ousted as Speaker of the House late Tuesday afternoon, his hand-picked acting successor, U.S. Rep. Patrick McHenry (R-NC), ordered Speaker Emerita Nancy Pelosi to vacate her Capitol Hill offices “by tomorrow.”

McHenry, whose title technically now is “Speaker Pro Tempore,” is a staunch McCarthy ally who worked diligently behind the scenes in January to help the now-former Speaker get elected on the fifteenth attempt, had an aide issue the order.

“‘Please vacate the space tomorrow, the room will be re-keyed,’ wrote a top aide on the Republican-controlled House Administration Committee,” Politico reported Tuesday night. “The room was being reassigned by the acting speaker ‘for speaker office use,’ the email said.”

Politico adds that “House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries’ staff helped Pelosi’s office make the move, according to a spokesperson for the former speaker.”

Pelosi, who was honored with the title “Speaker Emerita” in 2022 by the House Steering and Policy Committee in an effort to help unite the House, did not vote for or against McCarthy’s ouster. She remained in California to attend the funeral of her friend and colleague, the late U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein.

But Pelosi, the first and only woman Speaker of the House, who served from 2007 to 2011 and again from 2019 to 2023, did not take McHenry’s order lying down.

“With all of the important decisions that the new Republican Leadership must address, which we are all eagerly awaiting, one of the first actions taken by the new Speaker Pro Tempore was to order me to immediately vacate my office in the Capitol,” Pelosi said in a statement, according to Politico’s Nicholas Wu. “Sadly, because I am in California to mourn the loss of and pay tribute to my dear friend Dianne Feinstein, I am unable to retrieve my belongings at this time.”

“This eviction is a sharp departure from tradition. As Speaker, I gave former Speaker Hastert a significantly larger suite of offices for as long as he wished,” She noted.

“Office space doesn’t matter to me, but it seems important to them,” Pelosi added. “Now that the new Republican Leadership has settled this important matter, let’s hope they get to work on what’s truly important to the American people.”

‘Radical Left Marxists’: Trump Launches Attack Hours After Judge Imposes Gag Order



Just hours after New York Supreme Court Justice Arthur Engoron imposed a limited gag order and directed Donald Trump to remove his social media post targeting and attacking, by name, the judge’s law clerk, the ex-president Tuesday evening issued an attack targeting the legal system, and apparently, by extension, Attorney General Letitia James.

Judge Engoron’s Tuesday order barred Trump from “posting, emailing or speaking publicly about any of my staff,” as Politico reported. The judge’s gag order did not extend to any officer of the court, witnesses, or anyone else involved in Attorney General James’ $250 million civil fraud case against Trump.

“Consider this statement a gag order forbidding all parties from posting, emailing or speaking publicly about any of my staff,” Engoron said Tuesday afternoon. “Failure to abide by this order will result in serious sanctions.”

Judge Engoron had announced in court: “This morning one of the defendants posted to his social media account a disparaging, untrue and personally identifying post about a member of my staff.”

“Personal attacks on members of my court staff are unacceptable, inappropriate and I will not tolerate them in any circumstances,” Engoron added.

Politico described Trump’s social media post as “a message alleging [the law clerk] ‘is running this case against me.’ The message was pulled from an account on X with fewer than 200 followers. Trump then linked to an Instagram account for Greenfield’s campaign for a judgeship in Manhattan civil court.”

“’How disgraceful! This case should be dismissed immediately!!’ Trump added. He also posted a photo of her alongside Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and referred to her as ‘Schumer’s girlfriend.'”

And while the judge ordered the social media post taken down, there’s nothing that can be done about the email blast Trump sent to “millions” of his supporters that included the post, as The New York Times reported.

Tuesday evening, despite having already been given one gag order, Trump appeared to tear into the legal system and Attorney General Letitia James in a series of false claims.

After claiming James’ civil lawsuit against him was unconstitutional and election interference, Trump wrote the decision to apply that statute to him “was done by Radical Left Marxists design, and is not the America we know.”

“It is so unfair that I am being tried under Section 63(12), which is unconstitutionally being used to punish me because I am substantially leading Crooked Joe Biden in the polls,” Trump wrote on Truth Social. “It is a Consumer Protection Statute, and not meant, at all, for Election Interference purposes, which is what this is all about! Under this Section of the law, I am not even entitled to a JURY (there is no checking of a box alternative!).This was done by Radical Left Marxists design, and is not the America we know. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”

As The New Yorker reported last week, the law Trump is referring to was “passed at the behest of one of” James’ “Republican predecessors, Jacob Javits.”

‘Terrorist Attacks’: Murphy and Cornyn Slam House GOPers Over McCarthy Ouster



After U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) and seven of fellow far-right House Republicans voted to oust their own Speaker of the House for supporting a bipartisan vote to keep the federal government of the United States from a shutdown, a powerful Senate Republican and Democrat are both strongly denouncing the work of the few GOP extremists who toppled Kevin McCarthy.

U.S. Senator John Cornyn, a hard-core Republican of Texas and a former member of the Senate Republican leadership team, blasted the eight House Republicans for their “terrorist attack,” and warned it will happen again.

“We saw a similar thing happen to Boehner, Ryan, and now McCarthy. I’m sure the next speaker is going to be subjected to the same terrorist attacks,” Senator Cornyn said, according to HuffPost’s Igor Bobic.

Responding to a Texas radio talk show host from his official social media account, Sen. Cornyn added, “A handful [of] House members just want to blow up the institution and themselves in the process. Sad.”

U.S. Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) called the ouster “a deeply embarrassing moment for America. A consequence of a Republican Party that has become so radicalized that it can no longer function as an organized political party.”

“Nobody should be rooting for this circus,” added Sen. Murphy in video recorded as he watched the House voting to remove McCarthy as Speaker. He warned that the ouster of McCarthy will now take the House away from the critical work of keeping the government open after November 17, “instead of working on a budget.” And he warned that no new funds to help Ukraine defend itself against Russian President Vladimir Putin’s war have been authorized.

“These are life and death stakes,” Murphy said, lamenting this “makes us look so weak and foolish around the world.”
