    Arnold calls Democrats in CA "Girlie Men", Gays get mad


    Schwarzenegger Calls Dems 'Girlie Men'

    LOS ANGELES (AP) - A spokesman for Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger said Sunday that the governor would not apologize for calling lawmakers "girlie men," despite criticisms from Democrats that the remark was sexist and homophobic.

    Schwarzenegger dished out the insult at a rally Saturday as he claimed Democrats were delaying the budget by catering to special interests.

    "If they don't have the guts to come up here in front of you and say, 'I don't want to represent you, I want to represent those special interests, the unions, the trial lawyers ... if they don't have the guts, I call them girlie men," Schwarzenegger said to the cheering crowd at a mall food court in Ontario.

    The governor lifted the term from a long-running "Saturday Night Live" skit in which two pompous, Schwarzenegger-worshipping weightlifters repeatedly use it to mock those who don't meet their standards of physical perfection.

    Democrats said Schwarzenegger's remarks were insulting to women and gays and distracted from budget negotiations. State Sen. Sheila Kuehl said the governor had resorted to "blatant homophobia."

    "It uses an image that is associated with gay men in an insulting way, and it was supposed to be an insult. That's very troubling that he would use such a homophobic way of trying to put down legislative leadership," said Kuehl, one of five members of the Legislature's five-member Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Caucus.

    "It's ironic that the governor would try to find a metaphor for weakness when his real problem is that we're being too strong," she added.

    Schwarzenegger's criticism of Democrats stems in part from their support of one bill prohibiting schools from contracting services with private companies, and another giving workers authority to sue their employers to enforce labor laws. Each side accuses the other of caving in to special interests.

    At a rally Sunday in Stockton, the governor gave a speech almost identical to the one he delivered in Ontario but without the "girlie men" remark. Spokesman Rob Stutzman said the line was dropped because Schwarzenegger had already sent the message he wanted to send, not because he regretted his remarks.

    "It's a forceful way of making the point to regular Californians that legislators are wimps when they let special interests push them around," Stutzman said. "If they complain too much about this, I guess they're making the governor's point."

    Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez, a Democrat, said that while he wasn't upset by the remark, his 13-year-old daughter was.

    "She's a young girl who knows the governor and really likes him a lot and didn't find the term to be a positive term, and finds it to be derogatory," Nunez said. "It was no question a very, very insensitive comment to make. I personally am not intimidated or threatened by it, but I think it really is beneath Gov. Schwarzenegger."

    Just another vain attempt by the dems to use any little thing they can to paint republicans in a bad light. They know the jig is up, and after Bush completes his seccond term as president, Arnold will run and there will be no stopping him.

    And if you think that's impossible because Arnold was not born here, There is actually a bill on the floor as we speak, proposing to amend the constitution to allow foreign born citizens to run for president. IMHO, This has been an inevitability due to the nature of how the USA came into being. Lastly, the most suprising thing about this bill is that is was authored by "uncle Ted" himself.

    It's just an easy issue to try and attack from, and with todays' partisan politics seeming to be more and more divided throughout the country, it does not suprise me he was attacked for it. (Then again the gay community seems to think everyone is attacking them at all times, regardless of party). Given the same concept, the other side would do the same thing, it's a dirty business. I don't necessarily see a problem with the remarks, he was just using a common pop culture term to his advantage.

    It must really piss the dems off that there is another Republican (actor) gov. of CA for them to grasp for straws like this. Whining "Mommie, the big body builder called me a 'girly man'" just proves they are.

    i just dont see how they could see it as homophobic...

    when you think of girlie man do you think of a gay dude or a weak-ass whining bitch of a man? i think of the latter and always have...

    i guess it depends on how you were brought up; but this is the context that he meant it in... calling someone a sissy is a big thing even for adults... now its big because of stupid political and social correctness, you cant make such a comment...
    well he's got the balls to go out and say "**** you girlie man"
    I'll vote for him in 2008 if he's running.

    i bet gays aren't mad at all

    i bet it's all media hype as usual

    why would gays get mad? Just cause you're gay doesn't mean you're a girly man. I know gay guys that are complete studs. Being gay has nothing to do with being girly.

    I respect your opinion Matt, but the way I see it, this is inevitable. The world is so small now and things are a lot difrent than they were 200 years ago. IMHO, unless you have native american heritage, somewhere down the line your anscestors were imigrants. Our country was built on that.

    I have native America in my family tree but the founders of the country were immigrates yes but they had immigrated way before the birth of the nation.
    And it might be inevitable but it will be a sad day in my house when it happens.. I have family that have been around since the Georgia colony was founded.. and if you know you history, then you know that the people from the Georgia colony were not the "best" of people in some cases and my wife's family is 2 generation Yugoslavian, her grand mother and grandfather immigrated in the '20. Now, before anyone jumps on me about being anti immigrate, I AM NOT. I just thing if you are moving to a new country you should attempt to fit in, not force everything to do like the place where you came from...But the thing that is NOT happening with many of the newer immigrates is assimilation. They don't seem to want to fit in with the country and adopt some of the ways that American's do things. Arnold seems to be the exception and not the rule on this.

    Arnold's girlie comment is silly but overblown. Its more interesting he attacks special interest groups when he worked out a sweetheart deal with energy companies like Enron to settle the $9billion California energy scandal. That man like any politician has no shame.

    With you 100% on this, it is getting horrible in big cities (NYC, MIAMI, LA,DALAS, etc). It scares me when I walk down the street and hear more foreign languages than I do english, I thought this country was about starting over, not bringing your past with you.

    Historically people who speak different languages, have very different believes, and live close to each other tend to at some point start killing each other.

    Diversity is fine, but a common belief system, language, and culture go a long way towards maintaining stability and peace.

    Would that be considered a 'hate' crime in Canada?
    I've heard some incidents that it would...
    California is very diverse too.

    Personally, I just want them to try to fit in.. you don't have to go to extremes like my wife's grandfather, he wouldn't let any of the kids speak Slavic after they got to the US.

    And isn't it beutiful that we live in a free demacratic society where every individual can determine wether or not they want to vote for any given candidate;born american or not.

    t d p, the difrence between you and cr4ytonic is that you live in Canada. Most of us americans are pretty high strung. Diddn't you see "bowling for columbine"?

    think about what you're saying. you're sounding like a "racist." who cares what languages you hear on the streets? why does that scare you? embrace the cultural diversity! that's one reason America is so great! I'm from LA and i don't see a problem. where are you from?

    Cr4 and Matt are absolutely right. Fit in or get out. When in Rome... so to speak. Also, I do not care what anyone thinks of me after this, but I tell you true that homosexuality will be a rebuke to the entire nation and will def. contribute to America's downfall one day. Don't close your eyes to reality, start learning the difference between healthy diversity and detrimental deviance. Christ IS the truth so if you don't know, you can't understand. However, there is an absolute standard, and we should all follow it, regardless of what you believe personally.

    I live in washington, DC. 16 of the 17 hijackers all had "mohammad" in their name, some of them drove a plane into the pentagon, less than 2 miles from my house. The plane that went down was aimed at the WHite House, less than 2 miles from where I live. I am often downtown working. The DC sniper was named "mohammad" too, he killed several people. The local news is always full of terrorist threats. People start shooting at you in LA for no reason, driving planes into buildings and you will get scared too. I have to go through a metal detector at every gov't building I enter.

    I'm not a racist, but I am not stupid either and I can see a general trend. I haven't heard about any black guys named "Bernie Mac" or stealing planes and just going crazy.

    Yeah there are christian/white crazies too. I think its smart to keep an eye on people who spend alot of time hanging around abortion clinics.

    Damn guys isn't about being racist or anything.. We live in ONE country and we need to speak ONE language for a unified country. It is very hard to have everyone "pulling" the same direction if no one speaks the same language or has the same common culture. I personally don't care what damn color you skin is but I do care if you attempt to fit in or not.. I am not trying to totally take everything away from what culture you came from but at the same time, I don't want my culture taken away from me because you think that you don't need to fit it.. Now all the groups that have came over to this country, the Irish, the Poles, the Salves, the French, the Scottish, the English, the Germans, the Dutch, and even the African-American ( I know they were not here under their own free will but some of the other groups weren't either, look Irish Potato Famine or Indenture servitude) all brought parts of there cultures to the US but at the same time they attempted to fit in as a group.. even the Germans and the Dutch, two of the most stand offish of the groups (think Amish).

    Me either. Arnold was a great body builder but I don't like him as a politician. It's possible he's changed but after reading some biographies on him he is really an elitist.

I think you might need to take off the rose colored glasses and wander back to that little hole you came out of.. and apparently you didn't read my other posts.. it is the same thing I have been saying the entire time.. and I don't think keeping my mouth shut will happen on here unless one of my bosses on here steps in..

    Lance, lance, we didn't mean to freak ya out there senor, but maybe you need to STF up if nobody else can tell you, don't try to tell them either. You wanna be fair right? Also, LA is not safe. It will be one of the first places you see the evidence of what we're trying to tell you. It's not racism, Muslims hate you and you don't even know it! We are your friends, don't forget it buddy. And I do support what CR said.

    I have and he has done nothing wrong and I will never tell him to close his mouth, ever.


    Deep breath people before this explodes into something very nasty. Then I will delete and we don't want that.

    Right now I am really trying to decide if we need to keep this one open or not..
    Lancelot, I don't have a problem with you but I do have a problem with you wanting me to censor things.... I also do have a problem with CR or DR D but I don't agree with what they are saying.. and all this is seeming to do is fan flames that didn't need to get started in the first place..

    My comment is more something to ponder rather than a statment on belief.

    The drive for diversity in a sense is the drive for tolerance and acceptance. To truly achieve tolerance, one most be willing to tolerate concepts that are contrasting to one's own. While racism (to me) appears foolish and fruitless, should one who strives for tolerance and diversity not be willing to affirm that ls racism is simply an alternative conviction? Does this not appear to be a downward spiral?
