#HomoDemons

You may have heard of this ridiculous pastor in Harlem that says ridiculous things. He wants to let everyone know that Obama has unleashed something upon Black men. And no, it’s not the #MyBrothersKeepers initiative…

This is real life people. I need some scotch.

    I was happy to see this. For a while, I was starting to think only white people were bat shit insane.

    OK, I listened to as much as I could before I started getting disoriented. This is the guy who was raving about Obama’s mac daddy. I never figured out what mac daddy meant in that context.

    Now I have to figure out what a ‘homo demon’ is.

    No, they aren’t. But white privilege means you can be white, batshit insane, and a Very Serious Person.

    @Omnes Omnibus: Yeah, I was clicking through and heard a few seconds about the theater and homo demons, which I think I understood but maybe not.

    I like the theater and have bought many theater tickets.

    All my life I’ve wanted to be a mac daddy (for chicks, not for Barry) and it turns out I am just a homo demon, and white homo demon at that.

    On a more serious note, on Tuesday, I did have a young black woman try to explain to me that Obama was the devil. I started to laugh and that she explained that she believed in Jesus and being redeemed in Christ. I didn’t get to hear how that exactly led to Obama being the devil as I quickly disengaged from the conversation.

    @Baud:

    There used to be these black preachers at the DC Chinatown metro standing on soapboxes to preach some racialized twist on Christianity. They had this entire chart showing how all the different kinds of black people today were descended from one of the tribes of Israel. The Haitians came from the Tribe of Levi, the Jamaicans came from the Tribe of Judah, or something – one for each tribe. Joseph Smith adjusted for different racial identity, I guess.

    Craziness knows no racial boundaries. It’s another way I know the racialists are full of shit.

    @The Dangerman: I assume all those places that don’t take American Express are just warding off the homo demons.

    Zam says:

    @Omnes Omnibus: I’ve heard it before. It’s nonsense about people cheering for or being enthusiastic about a candidate = worship. The devil will try to trick people into worshiping him over Jesus, therefore Obama is the devil.

    @Chris:

    Were they wearing bow ties? If so, they may have been Nation of Islam. Like the Mormons, they have an unpleasantly violent past, but these days (at least in LA), they mostly tend to be polite and try to sell you copies of their newspaper.

    I know I’m supposed to hate the Brooks version of To Be or Not To Be, especially since I adore the original, but it really ain’t that bad. It’s not Lubitsch, but who is?

    I think we need a visual of the homo demon. You know– think about it: The Devil– picture popped right into your head, dinnit?
    So is a “Homo Demon” just a flaming* Red Devil, or something a little more imaginative? Maybe a closeted southern GOPer with expensive designer horns and a wide stance?
    Art contest time!!!!

    *pun not really intended, but unavoidable. Fun, too.

    Brooks was smart enough not to meddle with what worked, but rather to aim at adorning it.

    Homodemons? Is this the problem where two demons’ names are so similar, you’re always invoking one when you mean the one?

    Elon, I really think we need more of your singing from the Rent soundtrack.

    Also, I noticed that only black women need to worry about homodemons. I guess lesbiandemons are kind of boring: they just sit around and try to come to a consensus on who’s turn it is to work at the co-op and who’s supposed to empty the cat boxes.

    @MattR:

    I don’t remember if they had bow ties. Mighta been either of them. I wouldn’t say “polite,” but if they had any violent roots, they definitely weren’t showing them there. They were just fruity as a nutcake.

    @Chris: @Mnemosyne: According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, they have become more militant since 2000 when Christ failed to reappear to destroy white people as they had prophesized. I remember them from when I worked in the Times Square area in the late 90’s and they seemed to match Chris’s description – loudly proclaiming their wacky beliefs but not being confrontational about it. (Or at least I think they were the same group that those articles discussed. )

    @MattR: Yeah, I saw those guys too. I was just tryin’ ta get a crepe.

    Unfortunately I’m probably too white to get away with yelling “it’s only a flesh wound! ” at them.

    I think “homodemon” is a very Freudian name for these sorts of….demons.

    @Mnemosyne: There is a guy who gathers his audience on 7th Avenue and 33rd St. I’ve run into them occasionally. Although at this spot the leader usually is quiet when whites walk by and starts talking again to blacks passing by or who are standing waiting for a bus.
