No, Idaho Statesman’s Micheal Deeds, Being Heterosexual

Does Not Mean Being Intolerant

By Daniel Bobinski

Michael Deeds, one of the few Idaho Statesman writers who’s survived the bloodbath of firings and layoffs over the past few decades, may have survived due to his far-left views. His most recent scribblings have been to slander Eagle businessman Mark Fitzpatrick for proclaiming June to be Heterosexual Awesomeness Month at the Old State Saloon.

At issue, Deeds doesn’t like it that heterosexual men get a free beer on Mondays, that hetero couples get 15% off their bill on Wednesdays, and hetero females get all-day happy hour pricing on Thursdays.

Without having conversed with Fitzpatrick about the promotion, Deeds openly declares, “[T]ons of people are loving Old State Saloon’s thinly veiled hate.”

Serious questions exist here. Is Deeds clairvoyant? Does he understand a person’s motives without seeking a conversation to truly listen and understand? Apparently, Deeds believes he IS clairvoyant, so a challenge is in order:

Mr. Deeds – please provide examples of hate or apologize for your slander.

Let’s say it again but in larger type:
Mr. Deeds – please provide examples of hate or apologize for your slander.

Deeds also proclaims, “Old State Saloon is promoting intolerance.”

Oops. Another challenge is in order.

Mr. Deeds – please provide examples of intolerance or apologize for your slander.

Let’s say it again, also in larger type:
Mr. Deeds – please provide examples of intolerance or apologize for your slander.

Unlike Mr. Deeds, this writer reached out to Old State Saloon owner Mark Fitzpatrick and asked some questions. No hate was sensed coming from Mr. Fitzpatrick in any way. No intolerance, either.

This writer believes it’s a reasonable challenge for Mr. Deeds to “grow a pair” (his own words) and go sit in the establishment for a while. No purchase is necessary. He could even bring his gay and lesbian and queer friends. If Deeds is intellectually honest, this writer has complete confidence Deeds will note everyone is treated with respect and dignity, as all customers are at the Saloon.

When asked about Mr. Deed’s slanderous article, Saloon owner Mark Fitzpatrick replied, “There’s been a strong response with plenty of foul language attached and some threats. I sincerely love people, all types of people. I don’t think choosing to celebrate heterosexuals should be treated with such vitriol. The LGBTQ+ crowd patronizes Old State Saloon often. There’s never been a problem with that, nor do I expect any problems in the future. Anyone mistreating someone for any reason will be asked to leave.”

In fairness, this writer reached out to Mr. Deeds for comment, but no response was provided prior to the time of this publication.

The challenge stands. Provide examples of hate and intolerance, Mr. Deeds, or apologize for your slander.

Idaho Statesman posts libelous, slanderous tweet

To promote Deeds’ slanderous article, an Idaho Statesman’s X/Twitter post from May 30 states that “Eagle bar’s ‘Hetero Month’ puts ‘trans’ in transparent bigotry.”

Again, this is more slander.

The American Heritage Dictionary defines slander as:

  1. Oral communication of false and malicious statements that damage the reputation of another.
  2. A false and malicious statement or report about someone.

The same dictionary also defines bigot as:

One who is strongly partial to one’s own group, religion, race, or politics and is intolerant of those who differ.

It appears the truly intolerant one here is Mr. Deeds. Mr. Fitzpatrick welcomes people of all genders, colors, creeds, and political views into his establishment. He’s simply choosing to celebrate heterosexuality in the month of June. It’s no different than any business choosing to celebrate LGBTQ.

Deeds, on the other hand, is strongly partial to his own Leftist beliefs and appears to be quite intolerant of those who differ, especially since he won’t visit Old State Saloon even in his professional capacity as a journalist, nor converse with Mr. Fitzpatrick over the phone or face-to-face.

Perhaps it’s actually Mr. Deeds who is the bigot.

 

In the interest of full disclosure, Daniel Bobinski, the writer of this article, teaches the Bible study at Old State Saloon on Sunday mornings, has eaten at the establishment on multiple occasions, and has never once observed nor sensed any hate nor any intolerance toward any person in any way for any reason. Dr. Bobinski is also a certified behavioral analyst.

  1. Cool so the business owner won’t mind if I gather up all my gay friends and we show up on a daily basis turning that place, effectively, into a gay bar. Would the owner have a problem with that? Let’s find out……. I am going to call on all gay people in the area to go to this business wearing their best pride outfits. Let’s see how “tolerant” this man supposedly is. This is going to back fire on him big time!

    • First off, stop lying to yourself, there is no such thing as a gay conservative.
      Frankly, the least tolerant people I have ever meet are the homosexuals and other abc types. You want me and others to accept your “pride day”, but you yourself are unwilling to accept, in an intolerant and hateful way, others if the want to have pride in being straight. You don’t want equality, you want supremacy. The abc mob is a sexual supremacy group, only differing from the KKK and Aryan’s in ideology. Your tactics are the same as their’s and your goals are similar too.

    • It will not backfire.Mr Fitzpatrick has a sense of humor and is a shrewd businessman. Only a fool is “tolerant” of deviant behavior. Read your Bible. Sodomites are cursed lest they change their ways and forge a Path to Jesus.

    • Instead of spontaneously commenting on articles others have spent time researching to a complete thought, you should consider putting five hundred words together in a letter to the editor. It would help if you started by describing your name as Gay Conservative, as to me, this is an oxymoron. You have a reasonable chance to turn your message into cream or sour cream. It will be your only chance to show that your case is still alive.

    • That’s so “loving” and “inclusive”. You’re really proving that “loving and inclusive” is a one way street with you. What about letting someone have their own opinions and freedom of speech, thought and action and not trying to force or intimidate everyone to do things your way. You’re really coming off as the bigot and bully. “Get out of line from the parameters we set and you’ll pay”. “We’ll make your life a living hell”. Yea that sounds real loving. Maybe you should change the “pride” motto from love to either “Get Em” or “Revenge”. You people seem very vengeful and angry when everything doesn’t go your way. You say you’re a conservative, yet you seem very intolerant and anti free speech. You have just about all the power brokers kissing your butts left and right and you still want to crush any opposition. That sounds pretty totalitarian to me. You sound like a vengeful bigot. You should practice what you preach and learn to live and let live.
