Dominican Cardinal Goes Full Baldwin on New U.S Ambassador

Posted by on Jul 01, 2013 at 7:57 pm

We can’t understand why anyone would be offended. Just the past few days we’ve discovered it was perfectly acceptable to call someone a toxic little queen, and the left sure doesn’t seem to mind. So what’s all the hubbub about calling someone a maricón?

The Roman Catholic cardinal in the Dominican Republic responded on Thursday to news that President Barack Obama had nominated an openly gay man as ambassador to the island nation by calling him a ‘maricón’ — slang for ‘faggot’ or ‘sissy’ — during a press conference.

Cardinal Nicolas de Jesus Lopez Rodriguez took questions on Thursday in the capital city of Santo Domingo about the appointment of James ‘Wally’ Brewster, an Obama campaign donation ‘bundler,’ as his nation’s top emissary from Washington, D.C.

Asked to shift topics to a question about agriculture, the high-ranking clergyman brought laughs from reporters by saying, ‘We went from faggots and lesbians to chickens, now?’

‘In the United States anything can happen,’ he complained. ‘But there’s no one in this country who doesn’t know what my position is on the matter.’

Supposedly Brewster isn’t there to promote the gay agenda, but the Dominican is 70% Roman Catholic, so it’s a poke in the eye from Obama, who’s suddenly found a fetish for appointing gay ambassadors.

One Spanish-speaking source who has spent five years in the Dominican Republic told MailOnline that the word ‘maricón’ is equivalent to ‘faggot’ or ‘queen’ in English, but can also be used to insult gay men as ‘sissies’ or ‘wusses.’

The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Santo Domingo did not respond to a request for comment emailed in English.

But some journalists in the Dominican Republic are predicting broad resentment toward the U.S. over Brewster’s nomination.

Writing in the newspaper Acento, columnist Jose Alberto Ortiz said ‘Obama knows that a large majority of the Dominican population rejects [the idea] that two people of the same sex can unite in matrimony and form a family.’

It’s not so much the fact they’re gay that Obama’s appointing them, it more like they’re big financial supporters and this is the payoff.

President Obama has nominated five gay men to top diplomatic posts in the past month alone.

They include Brewster, former Obama for America finance chief Rufus Gifford (Denmark), Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Daniel Baer (Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe), former Office of Personnel Management director John Berry (Australia) and former HBO executive James Costos (Spain).

Costos and his partner, decorator Michael Smith, bundled more than $1.1 million in donations for President Obama’s re-election. Brewster, too, was in that exclusive $1 million-and-over club.

    It seems like business as usual to nominate ones political/financial allies. It has happened since the beginning of time. ‘Nothing to see, Move along’……

    Also an indicator of which team Obozo is most comfortable playing on.

    Guess those Chicago bath house stories were true….

    You Obozo supporters should be so proud you got a two-fer: first Afro-American Prez and first gay prez

    The Cardinal could have been more PC and called the Obamabongo friend “Mariposa”,
    it is less offensive for gays. But for most
    Latinos of any religion a homosexual is not a
    cool status. Only in the US the gays are placed
    above everyone else. How totally idiotic!
    Money talks loud and clear for Demorats…..

    Upon arrival, the new ambassador has to present his/her credentials to the sovereign. What if the sovereign refuses to accept those credentials?
