Republican Congressman Ted Yoho Bravely Admits

To loving sprinkles on ice cream, cold beer and the color blue.

"I know there will be those who decry sprinkles as dangerous shards of sugar that can get stuck between people's teeth, but I will not apologize for supporting Our American Birthright to add them to our ice cream desserts.

And while the Radical Left tries to foist warm beer on an unsuspecting citizenry, I do not apologize for preferring my beer cold --knowing that our Founding Fathers risked their lives and sacred honor to preserve their freedom to send slaves to fetch their beers cold from icy, clear mountain streams. I stand with those men in telling the King of England to take his warm beer and clean his buckled shoes with it. For I fear no reprisal from the King of England, knowing that I have God and the military/industrial complex on my side.

And while blue is considered the favorite color of the majority of people all across the world, nevertheless, I will not apologize for my passion in supporting it despite the great danger associated with liking things that most people like. That is because I, Ted Yoho, am not a fucking bitch.

I am actually a spineless cur who knows that having a thoughtful opinion regarding a complicated social issue is the quickest way to be shunned by a stupid electorate who squirm at being challenged in any way. I will always vote to protect the powerful and do whatever needs to be done to enhance my financial portfolio. Belittling women and minorities will remain my passion as I seek to honor my God and follow my hero, Donald J. Trump--or some interchangeable version of that last phrase."

Yoho Won't Apologize For 'Loving His God'

“I cannot apologize for my passion or for loving my God, my family, and my country,”

No one is asking you to apologize for loving God, Congressman Yoho.

As a person who claims the mantle of Christianity, you might want to apologize to Jesus.

Matthew 5:22

But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.

Those are words from the founding document of Mr. Yoho's religion. Speaking as a cynic of religion, I reserve my judgement for the virtue signalling associated with Mr. Yoho's supposed courage in declaring his faith.

Unlike Stephen the Martyr, you won't suffer a barrage of rocky missiles for declaring your association with the Christian faith, Mr. Yoho. You don't deserve brownie points for loving your family or a Medal of Honor for loving your country.

The majority of the human race feels love for their individual families and every single person you despise in Congress is there because they love their country. They wouldn't be putting in the effort to work along side of you if they didn't.

And--not to take anything away from Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez--but George Floyd undoubtedly loved his family. He left behind a daughter and he called out for his mother with his last breath. Lt. Col Alexander Vindman loves his country. That's why he chose to serve in our military. And that's why he chose to risk his military career to speak Truth to Powder and honor our democracy.

You may have tried to position yourself as a brave stalwart of decency and righteousness when you chose to evoke God, Family and Country in your statement regarding your recent behavior, Mr. Yoho. But the truth is, when you were asked to do something difficult--namely, own up to your words and actions--you betrayed yourself for the hypocritical coward that you are.

Perhaps we need a "Fun Products" page.

And I shall start with this one.


Sorry, I cannot find a way to post the actual image. It is cute, though. And one can purchase the design on items such as buttons, t-shirts and mugs.

And, NO. I swear that I am not getting any money from shilling this website's products. If I could swing such a lucrative deal, I would have already made big bucks from Society6 and Spoonflower. I tell people about their products all the time. . . Seriously, those companies need to start paying me.

About Collimator

I love logic and respect feelings. My aspiration here is to engage in reasoned discourse. I believe that Truth Leaks. It may take the time span of a Grand Canyon to wear away at human deceit and denial, but truth always carves its own path.
