Lesbian Gangs – Dykes Taking Over – Violence Against Men
Rod Wheeler Got Me!
I had something interesting happen today that hasn’t happened to me before in my 6 plus years of web marketing and SEO work for hire: I am getting stiffed by a “celebrity.” Unfortunately, it is NOT Paris Hilton. Rod Wheeler of Fox News fame contacted me on August 4 regarding redoing his website. We came to an agreement, he started giving me to-dos which included a change in direction to create a new website GetRod.com. During August this involved several hours work, making preparations for receipt of content which was never provided. I sent off a little invoice at the end of the month as is my custom for non-charity clients. Long story short, Rod made the gracious offer of paying me only what he through he owed me, not what I invoiced him. Last message from Rod said “I recant my last offer of a good faith settlement. I suggest you consult with you legal advisors from this point on if you feel any monies are due you.” Any monies would be anything over zero because he never paid me anything. So, a couple of philosophical business thoughts for you. If you are doing business with “celebrities”, make a very careful evaluation or get your money up front because they probably think they are doing you a favor by having you do work for them. If you run into Rod Wheeler, get Rod before Rod gets you. Cash in advance for Rod. This publicity cost me $250. That’s big bucks for a celebrity, apparently?
Rod Wheeler: Bill O’Reilly’s bigotry reaches new heights
The “fair and balanced” network that is FOX News has struck again. On the June 21 segment of The O’Reilly Factor viewers were treated to a “report” about lesbian gangs terrorizing the nation. Seriously. One Rod Wheeler, a Fox News crime analyst breathlessly reports about gangs of lesbian roving our city streets, beating up heterosexuals, and indoctrinating kids while at it. Again, seriously.
Said Wheeler, a former Metropolitan D.C police officer:
“Well, you know, there is this national underground network, if you will, Bill, of women that’s lesbians and also some men groups that’s actually recruiting kids as young as 10 years old in a lot of the schools in the communities all across the country. And they actually carry a number of weapons. And they commit a number of crimes…we’ve actually counted, just in the Washington D.C. area alone, that’s Washington D.C., Maryland, and Virginia, well over 150 of these crews. … And they — like I said, they recruit these kids to be members of these gangs.”
Thank heavens we have Fox to let us know the real threat in the U.S. isn’t straights gay-bashing us, it’s us attacking them! And according to Wheeler some of the women carry pink pistols.
Naturally, Bill being the excellent journalist he is, vetted all Wheeler’s claims before airing them to a national audience, right? Not so fast. Thanks to the excellent Southern Poverty Law Center — a civil rights watchdog group — we know that isn’t the case. The SPL contacted several police headquarters in the region and they have no idea what Wheeler is talking about. And when the group contacted Wheeler he couldn’t provide the name of a single police chief, cite a media source, or any other proof to back up his claims about lesbian gangs in the D.C. area.
Turns out Wheeler is a member of Jericho City of Praise, a conservative mega-church actively working against gay rights. Hmm, I wonder what might be behind Wheeler’s outlandish claims? As for O’Reilly, this is yet another in a long line of homophobic garbage reports he has filled our airwaves with. Both he and Fox are forces of evil in this world. But what really gets me are the numerous gay folks at Fox who delude themselves into thinking their presence somehow helps gay visibility. I’m sure the network treats their gay employees just fine. That will never stop them from demonizing us again and again.
Here is a link to Wheeler’s website or drop him an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. As always, be polite when making your point.
The clip from O’Reilly’s show is after the jump. And for a more humorous take, check out Sarah Warn’s post over at AfterEllen.com. And they say lesbians don’t have a sense of humor!
“O’Reilly Factor” claims lesbian gangs taking over America
Attention all AfterEllen.com readers: the jig is up! Our secret “national underground network” of violent lesbian gangs aimed at criminal activity and recruiting girls into the homosexual lifestyle has been exposed, and we must now move to Plan B (colonizing Mars).
Yes, that’s what Fox’s The O’Reilly Factor actually suggested last week (except for the Mars part, although I’m sure someone will suggest shipping us all there any day now) in a segment they aired about the growing problem of lesbian gangs terrorizing heterosexuals by stabbing and beating them, and brandishing pink guns (as if any self-respecting lesbian would carry a pink gun).
The claims were made by host Bill O’Reilly and “Fox crime analyst” Rod Wheeler (picture above, right), a former homicide detective who is clearly either mentally unbalanced, confused, willing to say anything to get on camera, or thinks every woman who isn’t interested in him is a lesbian (or D, all of the above).
I could analyze how ridiculous and unsubstantiated Wheeler’s claims are, point out their similarity to the outrageous stories the Nazis made up about the Jews back in the day, or question how such clearly inflammatory and inaccurate assertions based on distorted information got past even Bill O’Reilly’s fact-checkers, but other bloggers have already done so quite handily (see here, here, here, and here, plus check out this gay male take, and this well-researched rebuttal).
Instead, I’ll just make fun of it. Because what else can you do in the face of such insanity? (Well, besides telling Fox what you think about these outlandish claims, boycotting companies that advertise on The O’Reilly Factor, and reading more about O’Reilly’s record of distortion, all of which I plan to do shortly).
Here are a few of the choicer statements made in the segment:
O’REILLY: In Tennessee, authorities say a lesbian gang called GTO, Gays Taking Over, are involved in raping young girls. And in Philadelphia, a lesbian gang called DTO, Dykes Taking Over, are allegedly terrorizing people, as well.
Yes, and here in my New York apartment, we have regular meetings of LSOC (Lesbians Sitting on the Couch), where we brandish hard plastic remotes menacingly at our television set while cruelly biting down on popcorn kernels. Quick, catch us before we strike again!
O’REILLY: When they recruit the kids, are they indoctrinating them into homosexuality?
WHEELER: Yes, as a matter of fact, some of these kids have reported being forced into performing sex acts and doing sex acts with some of these people.
That’s right, don’t be mislead by the fact that 97% of pedophiles are male — it’s lesbians who are the real danger to your children!
O’REILLY: …it makes sense that, if you had lawless gay people, they would do this kind of thing, but you don’t associate it, you associate homosexuality more with a social movement, not a criminal movement, but you’re saying this is all over the country, detective?
WHEELER: It’s all over the country. It’s mainly in your larger cities, you go from New York to California to wherever you want to name, you can see these organizations.
Um, hate to break it you, Ron, but those “movements” happening “all over the country” are called “pride parades,” and the only thing criminal about them is the sports bra-only look some lesbians try to pass off as actual outfits.
WHEELER: “We’ve counted, just in the DC area alone, over 150 gangs or crews or networks.”
Yes, it’s true, we’re just one cell short of being a full-fledged terrorist network. Don’t bother asking us where bin Laden is — we’ll never tell!
Clarification and apology:
First of all, let me thank you for your feedback surrounding the O’Reilly Factor discussion on Lesbian Gangs. I received several e-mails from viewers, some positive and some negative, offering comments and constructive criticisms. Some of the e-mails I received were threatening and simply hostile. Click here for a sample e-mail I received from one viewer.
During the O’Reilly Factor segment on June 21st, while engaged in a discussion on Lesbian gangs, I inadvertently stated that gang members carry pistols that are painted pink and call themselves the “Pink Pistol Packing Group.” I was not referring to the gay rights group “Pink Pistols” who advocates for the lawful rights of gays to carry weapons for protection. Further, I mentioned that there are “over 150 of these gangs” in the greater Washington DC area. What I actually meant is that there are over 150 gangs in the Washington DC area, some of which are in fact lesbian gangs. Lastly, I mentioned in the segment that there is this “national epidemic” of lesbian gangs. A better choice of words would have been to say that there is a growing concern nationally, and especially in major urban areas, of increased gang activity, which includes some lesbian gang activity.
I apologize for any misunderstanding this may have caused.
