Right Wing GOP Rep Flips Out At Straight Lawmaker: Stop Touching Me, I Am A Heterosexual! [VIDEO]

Penn Live reports:

A conservative state lawmaker on Tuesday affirmed he was a heterosexual as he took issue with being touched in the arm by a male colleague. Rep. Daryl Metcalfe, chairman of the state House State Government Committee, during a meeting castigated ranking Democrat Matt Bradford after the latter touched his arm while addressing him.

In a terse tone, Metcalfe, a Butler County Republican, interrupted Bradford, who was sitting to his left at a conference table, immediately after the seemingly innocent gesture to say:

“I’m a heterosexual. I have a wife. I love my wife. I don’t like men as you might so stop touching me all the time. Keep your hands to yourself. If you want to touch somebody, you have people on your side of the aisle that might like it. I don’t.”

Rep. Bradford is married to a woman.

PREVIOUSLY ON JMG: In August 2013, Melcalfe called for impeaching all pro-gay politicians. In June 2013, Metcalf used a chamber rule to stop openly gay state Rep. Brian Sims from speaking about the historic DOMA ruling on the state House floor, saying that Sims was in “open rebellion against God’s law.” In 2011 and in 2012 Metcalfe introduced bills to insert a ban on same-sex marriage into the state constitution. Both attempts failed.

        Yeah she got a big kick out of it too. I got the sense most people in the room were as well

        • David Walker

          Many of his colleagues do a pretty heavy-duty eye roll when he is mentioned in any context. PA legislators are not utterly stupid. Close, but not utterly.

        That’s no lady, that’s a Republican politician.

      • Shy Guy

        I’m just waiting for the wingnuts to spin this into “See! Democrats don’t take sexual harassment seriously!”.

      • Chris Baker

        Yup. Back in the day, I was terrified of doing anything that might be perceived as gay. Over-correcting to a point. While straight guys don’t give a second thought to slapping each other’s asses and making physical contact, I would never have touched another guy and felt really uncomfortable when a guy touched me — Like on the arm or shoulder. So signs point to a possible closer case.

    • David Walker

      Since the honorable gentleman from Butler, PA is chairman of the state House State Government Committee, he gets to decide what can go to the House floor for debate. A few years ago, a marriage equality bill was ready to go and the ACLU made a general invitation to all who were concerned to attend the meeting. It was reschedule for a small conference room, but many of us managed to get in. He assumed everything was ready for his veto, but then he told us to recite the pledge of allegiance. What was truly moving for me was the crescendo after “under god.” “…with liberty and JUSTICE FOR ALL!” It was as if he were put on notice. Although it was high on the agenda, since he was asshole in charge, he kept putting it off in favor of what he admitted would take less time to discuss. When there was nothing else to get in its way, he ended the meeting abruptly, saying that there was to be a vote on the floor and they all needed to be there. We got booed. He clearly was not ready for that day. Tee hee. No, it never got to the floor and we kinda knew that. But it felt good knowing he knew the mood of the room.

    • Uncle Mark

      I wonder how infuriated the Republican would be, if the roles were reversed. Obviously it was Metcalfe’s intent to enrage Bradford, and he would probably continue to make insinuations about Bradford’s sexuality to hurt & unsettle his colleague. I’m sure being laughed at by a sexually secure Democrat was thoroughly unexpected.

      This certainly does beg others to wonder upon Metcalfe’s sexuality, if not his maturity

    • Dale Snyder

      Exactly! I also love how the christian asswipe says “maybe some people on your side like it.”

      Um, ALL gay sex scandals seem to involve REPUBLICANS.

    • margaretpoa

      Sounds like the whole room was laughing at the idiot

    • justmeeeee

      Did you hear a voice from off camera calling out, “I like it” after the lady protested?

  • NZArtist

    Geeze, you gotta ask… what happened to these people to make them so anti-touch?
    Seriously. That’s not a normal human reaction to someone touching your arm. It was a totally innocent gesture. That man has some *serious* issues to deal with. Holy hell.

    • skyweaver

      Yeah I’m with you. The look on his face after he said to stop touching him, I almost felt sorry for him he looked so unhappy. (Almost.)

  • Sam_Handwich

    we should send him a gay cake to cheer him up

  • JoeMyGod

    Somebody send Melcalfe a bag of dicks.

  • Ninja0980

    Only thing that would have made this better is if it had been Brian Sims.

    • robindaybird

      I don’t think so, if Brian Sims had done it the right would take up arms about inappropriate homosexuals, since it was a straight married man, it just makes him look like a paranoid loon even to his side

  • JohnMyroro

    Projection. He’s a Republican.

  • Goodboy
  • Ross

    So, in short, Metcalfe just came out of the closet.

    • JohnMyroro

      In true GOP style.

  • Ron Robertson

    He’s just shown he has a VERY strong reaction to touch from another male. So strong that it should make anyone question why, because it’s not a normal reaction for anyone normal.

  • Stogiebear

    That poor little snowflake. We should arrange for that other great heterosexual of the Republican Party to go over and comfort him: Marcus Bachmann.

        For two years I’ve wanted to bend my assistant over the couch in my office and let him have daddy’s full attention. But I’m pretty sure he’s also just friendly in the way the young hetero boys are now and also that’d be a hot but terrible idea.

  • drtrmiller

    Bets on how long it takes before Metcalf starts tweeting #MeToo?

  • Stev84

    Only a matter of time before he is caught with a rentboy

    • Tread

      3:1 odds his wife already caught him with one. Or at least his Manhunt subscription on their credit card bill. “Honey? What’s Online Buddies?”

  • Joe in PA

    I’m only here temporarily.

    • OdieDenCO

      it’s the internet. it’s permanent!

  • Natty Enquirer

    I think he’s got issues beyond being a closet ‘mo. He looked triggered to me.

    • gaycuckhubby

      He looks like he should be prevented from being around triggers. But you know this mentally unstable white boy got an arsenal at home

        Gah!

          He killed him after this scene

          • Cuberly Deux

            Yeah, I know.

            I still don’t get why that movie was so lauded.

  • Treant

    Men should take the opportunity to touch him at every opportunity, and give him come-thither eyes.

    Remember to report any passes he makes at you in the bathroom, and send video of you laughing in his face.

  • Yixing’s Fluffer

    “Why do all these homosexuals keep sucking my cock?”

  • Harveyrabbit

    That dude’s mentally ill. In other words he’s a Republican.

  • Nate

    If that’s where you mind goes from a simple arm touch, me thinks you are hiding something.

  • LarryChemEngr

    Daryl Metcalfe is a notorious asshole. In fact, if you look up “asshole” in Webster’s dictionary, Daryl Metcalfe is listed as an example.

    Honestly, homophobia of this magnitude means only one thing. Darryl is a closet case.

        No. That’s not ironic.

        Fleeing to Germany to escape Trump and his Nazis,

        And I’m a gay Jew.

        That’s ironic

        • Paul Ohbehr L

          I’m a Minnesota German Catholic. (Well, very ex-Catholic now and ex-Christian). I remember my mother who’s 87 saying how much my grandmother (from west central Minnesota, 2nd generation American) hated Hitler. Yet it seems as though some of the younger generation (much younger than me) (though also including near me at age 60) are just in love with Trump. I think if my grandmother could come back to life, she’d knock some heads together and call them bad names in German and in English. Now with Trump wanting to create a secret spy service to spy on Americans, it’s totally creepy. When in the past, people said it was wrong to compare Trump to Hitler, since the election, he’s done so much to prove he’s just like Hitler in so many ways. Who would have ever thought we would have had an American version of Hitler here. Elected by the American people (well. thanks to the Electoral College and fraud).

      • Cuberly Deux

        Good point.

  • Zeldacat

    The fuck? What was wrong with just saying “please stop touching me”? Some people don’t like being touched.

    This douchebag, though…wow. Dude, you have issues.

    • Treant

      I tend to be one of those people who dislikes being pawed by casual acquaintances and strangers. I find that leaning back a bit helps.

      But that? It was a little touch on the arm.

      • Robincho

        I’m sure that Hetcalfe is VERY used to leaning back a bit. Or a lot, depending…

      • Natty Enquirer

        It may have been the last in a series of arm touches. But the normal adult way to handle that is to emphatically pull back without having to say anything.

    • I also thought of endless episodes of siblings in the back seat during long road trips: “Mommy! He’s touching me again! Make him stop! And I don’t want my peas touching my carrots!”

      But yeah–bottom ine was projecting his homosexuality on to others.

    • BlindBill

      I suspect it is a “clever insult responce” that he had memorized and been longingly waiting for a chance to regurgitate on camera …. but in his rehersal fanticies, everyone in the room did not laugh at him —- Reality can bite one in the ass

  • Randy503

    He should have told him there is nothing to worry about because he is just not that cute.

        I can separate her activism from her talent. I do the same for Kelsey Grammar, Jon Voight, Dennis Hopper (Though he’s dead.)

        I watched the first season of Feud and thought she was perfect as Bette, wasn’t an impression of her, more of a subtler take.

        • Treant

          I can respect that. In her case, it’s too egregious and I don’t want to support her monetarily by watching any movies, viewing ads during presentations, and so on.

          I’m summarily unforgiving of anybody who helped put Dumpy into office.

          • Cuberly Deux

            I get it. If there’s any group I tend to black list it’s the LCRs and other homocons. Especially when they refused to acknowledge Obama’s efforts….meanwhile they all ran out to get married post haste.

          They are amazing up close and personal. We’ve gone along the Skagit river when the salmon are running and viewed them,100’s. But you still can’t appreciate the weight,wing span and shear strengths of the talons until you have opportunity to hold(actually he holds you) one. Gal pal worked at wildlife rehabilitation center that had one that would never be able to be released and was used for education. I wasn’t prepared for the weight and no way to escape that wing span. His wing bitch slap rivals my wife’s.

          Pet owners live longer and generally happier people . Anyone with the shit stain on 1600Pennsilvania Ave attitudes should be investigated. Ted Bundy comes to mind

        He’s such a germophobe that he won’t eat a package of Oreos if has been opened; I’m sure dogs are right out, much less dog poop.

        • greenmanTN

          He’s a germophobe yet he eats at McDonalds all the time. Go figure.

          • thatotherjean

            i suspect that, since he’s convinced that so many people love him, he thinks that nothing can happen to his food between the fryer and the McDonald’s sack. Obviously, he’s never seen the YouTube record of all the things that can.

    • Uncle Mark

      Keith Olbermann did a whole piece about how obvious it was that Trump never had any pets…either growing up or as an adult. It explains how he would use his oft-used “like a dog” phrase incorrectly almost every time. He also goes on about his obvious lack of empathy and the giant hole in him that he is always trying to fill with money, women, possessions, and adulation

      • JCF

        Pets teach you empathy—of which Drumpf has ZERO.

    How childish! I also don’t like being touched by the people I work with, but I would never interrupt a meeting with supposed professionals to proclaim my heterosexuality. You take som
    eone aside and explain you don’t like to be touched, that simple.

    What would be great is everyone this man touched regardless of how innocent it was you flip out and scream at him. Yah know him accidentally bumping someone’s foot under a table or the person in a chair in front of him. Show him in the most embarrassing way that flipping out is childish. Mom, Jenny is on my side. Mom, billy is looking at me funny. Lol

    • BobSF_94117

      Metcalfe claims that he has asked Bradford to stop it several times. I can sort of understand the frustration.

      The homophobia in his outburst is for more qualified mental health professionals to assess.

      • ECarpenter

        People who were brought up without that Puritan touching taboo don’t consciously touch other people like that, it’s just another communication band. It’s as natural as talking or breathing, as we see from the entire primate kingdom.

        It takes religion to warp things like a hand on your (clothed) arm into sexual assault, which is what this right-wing guy has going on in his head. So no, I have no sympathy for him. He can’t help what was done to his mind as a child, but he’s had lots of time to get over it. He’s just another closeted right wing jerk who lives an unhappy life and will die an unhappy death.

        • BobSF_94117

      It should have been there by at least 2004. That’s when he introduced his man/woman marriage amendment. He’s in charge of what can be debated, so it naturally got to the floor. It lost overwhelmingly. It reintroduced it, the Senate said they wouldn’t consider it if it got of the House, and that was that.

    OT but another update on the SoCal fires.

    The fire in Ventura County is over 50,000 acres, no containment. The fire in the Sylmar/Sunland area is over 11,000 acres, no containment. The fire up in the Santa Clarita area that started this morning is at 5000 acres and about 5% containment. The wind event is scheduled to last until Friday, with Thursday being the worst day. Fixed wings haven’t been able to fly over the fires in Ventura County or the Sylmar area fire because of the winds. They apparently were able to start flying them for the Santa Clarita fire. At least 30 houses have burned in the Sylmar/Sunland area fire and at least 150 homes in the Ventura fire but it’s going to end up being way more than that. Homes have been burning all day.

    Hate to bring up the horror show today but a friend on another forum brought up a good point.
    Despite the bigots claims only Christians have been “targeted”, there have been Muslim cab drivers sued as well when they’ve tried to ignore discrimination laws, mostly cab drivers.
    If Kennedy goes with this theory, can you imagine how easy it will be for Muslim bigots to kick same sex couples out of their cabs/refuse to pick them up in the first place and then claim bias, given who is in the White House and the uptick in hate crimes?
    Or a conservative Jew etc?

      “While standing for the picture, I made an inappropriate and flippant comment by saying, ‘This isn’t my idea of a threesome,’ which was intended as a partisan comment about being in a photo with a Liberal member of caucus,” Mr. Bezan said.

    • Does this mean that the new Chancellor, Sebastian “The Wunderwuzzi” Kurz gets to come out of the closet? (The slogan for this campaign ad was “Black is Hot”. This is before he changed his party’s colour to teal. Word is he is privately happy about the court decision even though most in his party opposed the move — since it removes it as an issue as a European bone of contention. Wuzzi wants Austria to stay in Europe.

      Prior to the show she wrote a couple books “I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence” and “Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People”. Around, I believe the latter, she was on Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me. She introduced Peter Siegel to the Volcano vaporizer when she brought it up as a crafting aid. He didn’t know what it was, and she was trying to delicately answer the question. I found it hilarious.

Only Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge on Windows, and Safari on Mac, support 1080p HTML5 player streams while Chrome, Firefox and Opera only streams up to 720p in quality.

          I loved him as Major Nelson and even more as J.R. I saw him and his wife in the New Orleans Marriott a couple of years before he died. He was in the lobby being very friendly and just chatting with people. He was kind of the opposite of J.R.

            The young seem to be switching from cotton to dry-tek-style synthetics t-shirts. I like the way some of their colors blend and they feel silky.

          I haven’t run Windows in a decade. I got tired of having to replace my computer every time Microsoft decided to update.

          • safari

            That reminds me.

            The final opportunity to get the free upgrade to Windows 10 expires at the end of this month. The “official” upgrade offer ended in July. However, there is a page to download the Windows 10 update for free if you claim you need assistive technology, like large text.

            After the 31st of this month, Windows 10 will cost $120 for the home edition.

            I mention this since I did update my mom’s Windows 8 laptop to Windows 10 because it had better syncing features for her phone to get her photos off it. Plus I *hate* the Windows 8 interface.

          • I hate Windows 10. I have blocked it on my mom’s computer by playing around with her registry – she is running Windows 7 (she is a disaster with downloads, I once had to manually remove 433 trojans in safe mode) — but the work in downgrading my photographic files would not be worth converting back. I just should go back to Mac next year.

          • johncAtl

            My new work computer has 10 on it and I’m dealing with it, but Win7 was a perfect OS. My personal PC has been a Mac for more than ten years. I was a reluctant Apple fan, but over time I learned that Apple products just work. You don’t have to fight with them.

            I have five different versions of python installed and a half dozen different compilers. With no native package management system, I’m at the mercy of people who maintain third-party libraries. I can tell you that they don’t always work.

          • johncAtl

            That’s not the fault of the OS. And it’s not something that I would want an OS to try and manage. The thing I hate the most about Windows is the registry. What a piece of garbage.

    Metcalfe is, unfortunately, my “representative” in the PA House. My votes for his opponents never do much good, thanks to GOP gerrymandering. I do send him e-mails on occasion.

My e-mails try to remind him that he should be addressing problems here in Pennsylvania, such as the gas frackers essentially raping the state instead of worrying about the Mexican border.

    Just lifted this from a poster on Political Wire:

    From today’s Washington Post:
    Flynn lied to the FBI about the substance of his conversations with Kislyak.
    Jeff Sessions repeatedly told Congress that neither he nor anyone else on the Trump campaign had any contact with Russians, which we now know was false; not only did Sessions have multiple contacts with Kislyak, he was aware of contacts George Papadopoulos had with Russians.
    Tuesday the New York Times reported that while national security aide K.T. McFarland told Congress she was unaware of the nature of Flynn’s dealings with Kislyak, newly released emails show she had detailed knowledge of those dealings, which strongly suggests she lied to Congress.
    Donald Trump Jr., in a statement personally dictated by President Trump, lied to the public about that notorious meeting with a group of Russians offering dirt on Hillary Clinton.
    That’s a whole lot of people around Trump who are acting like they have something to hide. And nobody has more to hide than the president himself; he didn’t withhold his tax returns because he’s so modest about how wealthy he is. If Mueller is getting deep into Trump’s finances, we may well find out just what he’s been working so hard to keep the public from finding out.

    I’m not sure if the last paragraph is the WaPo or if it’s a comment by the PW poster. He doesn’t make it clear.

    • safari

      Deutsche Bank was subpoena’d. Rachael had a great opening in her A-block today describing how Deutsche Bank laundered money from Russia and how, strangely, they kept funding Donald’s projects even after he defaulted on his loan with them and sued them in the process. His business interests are going to get slammed.

      • billbear1961

        A gangster’s “business interests” SHOULD get slammed.

    It’s been a week since a 19-year-old white kid threatened to shoot people at our local community college. When he was arrested at his apartment he had an AR15, 12 loaded magazines, and another rifle. In the 71 minutes since the first threat, the college *evacuated* its personnel rather than give a shelter in place order, and the police arrested the suspect.

    I’m still wrapping my head around what it would mean had that not happened.

    • MikeBx2

      How were the police alerted about him before he acted?

      • safari

        He informed a friend to avoid the campus and laid out part of his plot. The friend informed the police.

          My friend’s father dated a woman for years before his wife died of Alzheimer’s Disease. What, he was supposed to sit home for decades?

          They never did marry, but nobody had much problem with it before, during, or after. Except my friend, a little, but that was more loyalty to the mother she used to have.

          • billbear1961

            Did your father’s friend–like these FRAUDS–relentlessly preach sermons and spend all his time condemning OTHERS for their terrible, terrible immorality?

          • Treant

            Actually, he was a very devout Moravian and served as the equivalent of a deacon.

            The church didn’t give a crap either. 🙂 While behind the times, the Moravians are getting up to speed slowly; it’s mostly the African congregations that are holding them back.

    O/T but there is a bill going through Congress that will nullify all gun control laws or come pretty close to doing it.
    It has 3 Democratic sponsors who are using the state lines shouldn’t nullify your rights argument.
    Those three co-sponsors were happy to push the vile Federal Marriage Amendment by the way.
    I know sometimes you have to grit your teeth and support a candidate (Manchin) that is more conservative then you like but these three are vile POS to the LGBT community and the fact they weapons that can kill people aren’t a threat in all 50 states but same sex couples getting married is..
    They can all go to the Hell they believe in.

    • johncAtl

      It doesn’t matter. The Republicans are quietly filling the Federal courts with right wingers and nobody is paying attention. Congress is going to be able to pass outrageous, and un-Constitutional, laws that the courts will uphold. We are truly fucked.

    OT:

    Keisha Lance Bottoms (D) delivered her acceptance speech for Atlanta Mayor. Mary Norwood (I) not yet conceding and calls for a recount. Recount automatic anyhoos because the margin razor-thin (maybe like 750 votes). Is Atlanta Cascade, or is Atlanta Buckhead? Is Mary a Trump mole? Is Keisha a Reed puppet?

    Also, I’m high as a kite.

    Genesis 1:12 ‘I give you all the plants and herbs to use’ (paraphrased).

    • johncAtl

      Wow. Norwood lost to Kasim Reed eight years ago by a really small number of votes.

      I didn’t vote in the general election because I knew it would come down to Bottoms and Norwood in a runoff. I voted today for Bottoms because the Georgia Log Cabin Republicans endorsed Norwood. They were both highly rated by Georgia Equality on gay issues, and I would be happy with either as mayor. But I’m not voting for anyone that the LCR endorse.

      • easygoingmister

        We just moved out of Atlanta proper in June so I was a spectator for this one. Like your logic on the LCD endorsement.

      The key being “well-adjusted.” A normal person would have just moved his arm away from the touch. Clearly Metcalfe has some issues.

    May 18, 2019: “PA state rep Rep. Daryl Metcalfe (R) was arrested for soliciting sex from a male under the age of 16. He was caught by sting-agents while on his knees, fellating a 14 year old mixed-race youth and begging to swallow the boy’s sperm. As he was led away in handcuffs, Metcalfe screamed about Jesus allowing him to do things that ‘normal’ people are not allowed to do, that he was really a heterosexual but doing secret research on the hidden gay agenda. As he was booked, police officers discovered poppers and meth in his pockets. This is a developing story.”

  • greenmanTN

    OT, but I just spent the last 30+ minutes searching for a video but can’t find it because I can’t remember the title or the name of anyone in it.

    A short comedy film starring a blond female standup comedian who looks a little like Amy Schumer but is not Amy Schumer. She’s on a blind date in a nice restaurant and starts telling her date about a movie she has seen recently about a group of tough girls at a high school who bully a meek girl, who is getting progressively angrier and it’s building toward some violent confrontation. The movie within the movie looks like a 1950s B-film and the girl gang all have big teased hair, laugh too loud, etc.

    The problem is that she is acting all this out in front of her blind date, complete with loud singing of the tough girl theme (BAH BAH DA), the loud laughs, the operatic suspense music, the dialog, embarrassing the hell out of him. So it’s kind of a crazy date movie.

    Does this ring a bell with anyone?

    Edit: NEVER MIND, I found it!

    Odd but interesting. DC comics is doing a 6 issue run of The Snagglepuss Chronicles, a serious take on what it was like to be a closeted gay man (or in this case a gay pink mountain lion) in the 1950s. It’s based on the Hanna Barbera cartoons but in this version anthropomorphic animals are a regular thing and Snagglepuss is a celebrated playwright in the Tennessee Williams mold, but married to an actress who acts as his beard while he is secretly gay in the oppressive McCarthy era.

The next scenario had the boss shaking the hand of a male employee while gripping his bicep. I hesitated and clicked “nope” and got the question wrong. I admit, my porn-viewing experience may have colored my perceptions just a bit. Fortunately, it was the only question I missed and at least I erred on the side of caution.
