    Angry Republican Virginia Foxx calls Matthew Shepard's brutal murder 'a hoax'



    The House Republican chosen to lead the charge against including women, people with disabilities, and gays in America's already-existing hate crimes law - existing law already counts violent crime based on the race, religion or national origin of the victim as a "hate crime" - just referred on the US House floor to Matthew Shepard's murder as "a hoax."

    You will recall that Matthew Shepard was the young gay men in Colorado who, a decade ago, was tied to a fence, Jesus-like, pistol whipped in the head some 50 times, then left for dead in the cold fall night, only to be found a day later clinging to life. Shepard died five days later. Even though Shepard's murderers admitted that they killed him because he was day, the far-right bigots who control the Republican party couldn't resist the opportunity to gay-bash Shepard one last time. Now by referring to his brutal murder as a hoax.

    Here is what North Carolina (figures) Republican had to say about Shepard's horrific murder:


    If you didn't vote for this bill -- against this bill and against this rule for anything else, you could vote against it because we are spending additional money. i also would like to point out that there was a bill -- the hate crimes bill that's called the matthew sheppard bill is named afte a very unfortunate incident that happened where a young man was killed, but we know that that young man was killed in the commitment of a robbery. it wasn't because he was gay. this -- the bill was named for him, hate crimes bill was named for him, but it's really a hoax that that continues to be used as an excuse for passing these bills.


    Now let me quote you what really happened:


    During the trial, Chastity Pasley and Kristen Price (the pair's then-girlfriends) testified under oath that Henderson and McKinney both plotted beforehand to rob a gay man. McKinney and Henderson then went to the Fireside Lounge and selected Shepard as their target. McKinney alleged that Shepard asked them for a ride home. After befriending him, they took him to a remote area of Laramie where they robbed him, beat him severely (media reports often contained the graphic account of the pistol whipping and his smashed skull), and tied him to a fence with a rope from McKinney's truck. Shepard begged for his life. Both girlfriends also testified that neither McKinney nor Henderson was under the influence of drugs at the time. The beating was so severe that the only areas on Shepard's face that were not covered in blood were those where his tears had washed the blood stains away.


    A hoax? Belittling the brutal murder of a 21 year old college student? And Republicans wonder why their angry, hateful, pathetic party is now only 20% of the US population.

    Watch the video for yourself. Then feel free to call this sorry excuse for a human being and tell her what you think of her bigotry.

    I wonder where Virginia Foxx stood on letting blacks swim in our pools fifty years ago. Actually, I think I already know.

    Why don't we just recreate the 'incident' in question, substituting her for Matthew, and then she can see how much of a 'hoax' it was.

    Well it was also said they pretended to be gay, just to get him in the truck. Then they asked for his wallet, when he refused that's when they started beating him. If that's the case, then it's not a hate crime, but a robbery....
    That's why she's saying the use of his name in order to have this bill passed is a hoax, not that him being gay, or his killing was a hoax.

    Poor guy. It's really sad what happened.

    They said they chose him because he was very small and they knew he couldn't fight back.

    Pretty sure if they just wanted to rob him, they would have done so and dumped him out somewhere. The fireside lounge is a gay bar. They wanted a gay target. They targeted him cuz he was gay. Then they beat him to death because he was gay.

    If you say so. I don't know, I wasn't there, nor have I read the evidence. I was just reading notes from the case.

    pretty much common knowledge.. they went to a gay bar, targeted him, made like they wanted to have some sexy times, got him in their truck, drove to a fence, smashed him around some and left him for dead.

    Oh yeah, and took his wallet. They went fagbashing for moneyz.

    Virginia Foxx is an ignorant cow who burn in hell! That poor guy was targeted because he was gay, plain and simple. If they wanted to rob him, they could've done so and not slowly killed him.

    For that disgusting piece of trash Foxx to demean Matthew's life and murder like that is utterly disturbing and reprehensible. He was a human being who deserved to be treated with kindness and respect. Fuck that cunt and the horse of judgment she rode in on.
    Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

    Exactly. They fucked him up for no other reason than he was gay.

    It's sad that woman called this a "hoax." She's a hoax.

    I don't know all the details of this case, but historically, gays have been convenient targets for a certain class of thieves because many gays were closeted. And in order to report and provide details of the crime they would have to admit they were in a gay bar and basically out themselves to their family, friends, community.

    Another reason to choose a gay or lesbian as a victim -- especially in a conservative community -- would be that the police would not care enough to follow procedures, and that if it made it to trial the jury wouldn't be sympathetic enough to rule in the victim's favor.

    Adding to those elements is the particularly sadistic nature of this crime. Tying this guy to a fence, hitting him more than 50 times (a very slow, painful death), would seem to imply an extreme amount of antipathy toward someone who would normally be someone you would just stick up and bash a couple of times. It does seem to leave his homosexuality hanging out there pretty obviously as a reason for such hostile treatment.

    Moreover, I would think that because these guys had homophobic tendencies, that they felt the need to cleanse themselves of their earlier "feigning gay" behavior, by performing the ritual of beating the living crap out of a gay person, proving at some kind of atavistic level that they "are heterosexual after all".

    So, that's why I think it qualifies as a hate crime toward gays.
