I see huddling homosexuals. Send me 20 bucks.

Dear Jim,

It’s hard to write you this. My office is in trouble.  And I need your help. I have been working overtime fighting against the radical Homosexual Lobby.

Today, I’m worried.

Despite passing Thought Control and repealing Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, the radical Homosexual Lobby is drooling for more this year in Congress. And with this Congress, they have adopted new tactics.

I see well-known agents of the radical Homosexual Lobby everywhere. They are huddled in dark corners scheming and plotting.  They meet secretly with members of Congress in hopes of tempting them to advance their perverse agenda with campaign cash and the promise of votes.

This, in spite of the fact that we’ve defeated a major portion of the Homosexual Lobby’s perverse agenda in the past. Together, we held off the Gay Bill of Special Rights in 2011, and cut off the efforts of pro-homosexual Obama White House, but we had to spend everything to do it. The Homosexual Lobby knows this, and it knows as well as you or me that if we can’t finance ourselves, we won’t be able to stand up to them in the future.

That’s why I need to ask you today to seriously consider making an emergency contribution to Public Advocate.  Even a donation of $20 or $40 would make a huge difference.

“I see well-known agents of the radical Homosexual Lobby everywhere. They are huddled in dark corners scheming and plotting.”

I suppose if I saw Eugene on the street with a sign around his neck bearing that quote I’d be tempted to toss him a few coins.

Oh, poor Eugene. He’s off his meds again.

I think “Box of Rocks” has a sibling….

The Box of Rocks informs me that Eugene is no longer welcome at respectable family functions. The last time he showed up he got stoned.

Um… “passing Thought Control”? Did I miss that? were my thoughts being controlled at the time?

March 16th, 2012 | LINK

He’s a one-man hate group. *SMH*

@MCB, you have misunderstood the Thought Control legislation. The thoughts of gay people are NOT being conrolled. Gay people are now controlling the thoughts of everyone else.

We are finding it especially difficult to control Eugene’s thoughts because we are finding it especially difficult to find his brain!

Did you not get your neighborhood thought control device? I’m sure you were on the list to get one . . .

Honey, if I’m huddled in a dark corner with another gay man, chances are we’re not scheming and plotting.

But we might be doing the homosxual agenda.

I look forward to my monthly DelgaudioRantAGram, I like the laughs. The only sad thing about it is that the guy is apparently pulling in over $1m a year for this BS.

Protesting the proposed Civil Disobedience law at the State Capitol isn’t exactly huddling in dark corners. It also protects your right to protest the homosexual lobby, honey.

God can answer your prayers and mine without breaking a sweat. It will be okay.

March 16th, 2012 | LINK

Oh, Ben in Oakland, you just made my day.

I don’t know, if we all throw in a buck or two, do you think Eugene could buy a tinfoil hat to keep the huddled homosexuals from controlling his thoughts?

Ben In Oakland

99 cents or less at 99 cents or less for enough tinfoil to cover his pointy head.

I’m living in Japan right now (and straight) so that probably explains why I didn’t get mine.

Seriously, though, what on *earth* is he referring to? Do people on the right really believe some evil mind-control bill got passed?

March 17th, 2012 | LINK

Nurse Mildred Ratched: “If Mr. Delgaudio won’t take his medication orally, we’ll just have to find some other way to give it to him.”

He’s clearly off his meds, yet again.

I guess I don’t feel sorry for anyone stupid enough to give this con artist money.

I don’t think this guy ever took meds. Seriously, he needs a serious psychiatric evaluation.

That boy ain’t right, is MY preliminary diagnosis.

March 17th, 2012 | LINK

What is this Gay Bill of Special Rights he always mentions? Is it a reference to anything real?

March 18th, 2012 | LINK

@joe It is not a reference to anything real. “Special rights” is one of the code phrases the extremist haters use to refer to anything that recognizes that gay people are human beings.

Since their underlying premise is that gay people are not human beings, but something beneath human, we are not entitled to basic human rights and dignity. Therefore, any law that might protect us from having these basic human rights being violated is granting us “special rights.”

Shouldn’t the IRS or something be investigating this guy? Is he a not-for-profit, or just a regular scam? I notice that he pays himself fat “consulting fees” that use up almost all the budget.

March 18th, 2012 | LINK

This dude needs to get a job.

Oh that’s right…consulting fees…so he’s a consultant?? To who exactly??

I have this wierd mental image of him sitting across a table from a large mirror, talking to himself.

You can’t really work for yourself or your own organization as a consultant, can you? Is paying yourself consulting fees from your own nonprofit legal? I wouldn’t think so…

Everyone should donate a penny to his cause. Whoever processes his credit card donations will charge him considerably more than one cent to process each one cent donation.

March 19th, 2012 | LINK

You would think people would be smart enough to not give this guy money in the first place, but I guess if you’ve got the right words to say you can make a living out of asking people for money.

Just cause it might be legal don’t make it right, most of us have to work for a living.

I love the penny donation idea though, how long before he’d send emails out begging for THAT to stop?? Let’s all bankrupt this guy, LOL.

March 19th, 2012 | LINK

Sadly, I’m not entirely sure that the credit card processors even will accept less than a $1 transaction…

But, if you ever get a postage-paid envelope from the guy, paste it onto something heavy and send it in. The Post Office will debit his account. I try to do this whenever I get mailings from the GOP or right-wing causes (I had to stop donating to equality-minded Republicans because I got inundated by mailers from hateful Koch whores like Jim DeMint, Mitch McConnell and Eric Kantor. I filled the postage-paid envelopes with everything they sent with them, plus some pennies for extra weight.)

March 20th, 2012 | LINK

MattNYC, I love your idea…maybe we can save the Post Office by giving them more business, AND fill the mailboxes of the Idioticans with the junk mail that usually goes into the recycling box. Which they get to pay for receiving, so it’s a win/win! How do I get on his snail-mailing list?

March 20th, 2012 | LINK

What about sending donations to Lambda Legal, or your local Pridefest organization, and giving Eugene credit for the donation? They get needed donations, and he’ll get mailings and thank yous and requests for money!
