Delgaudio Protests McAuliffe Inauguration

Terry McAuliffe was sworn in as the governor of Virginia on Saturday and deranged bigot Eugene Delgaudio was there to protest in order to “express demands from a majority of Virginians and Americans demanding traditional marriage.” Never mind that McAuliffe just got elected by a majority. Here’s a ridiculous video he made about it:

I have an idea. Remember the hilarious fundraising email he sent out with this entirely fictional story:

One stormy night I drove to a mailshop hidden deep in a nearly deserted stand of warehouses. I’d heard something was up and wanted to see for myself. As I rounded the final turn my eyes nearly popped. Tractor-trailers pulled up to loading docks, cars and vans everywhere and long-haired, earring-pierced men scurrying around running forklifts, inserters and huge printing presses. Trembling with worry I went inside. It was worse than I ever imagined. Row after row of boxes bulging with pro-homosexual petitions lined the walls, stacked to the ceiling. My mind reeled as I realized hundreds, maybe thousands, more boxes were already loaded on the tractor-trailers. And still more petitions were flying off the press. Suddenly a dark-haired man screeched, “Delgaudio what are you doing here?” Dozens of men began moving toward me. I’d been recognized. As I retreated to my car, the man chortled, “This time Delgaudio we can’t lose.” Driving away, my eyes filled with tears as I realized he might be right. This time the Radical Homosexuals could win.

I think every time he shows up to protest somewhere, a group of “long-haired, earring-pierced men” should show up and taunt him.

    OBVIOUSLY, McAuliffe stole the election. Or something.

  •!/VeritasKnight VeritasKnight

    McAuliffe won a plurality, not a majority.

  • matty1

    Why are they demanding traditional marriage, is there some difficulty in obtaining it?

  • Zeno

    I get the deranged bigot’s e-mails. They all scream about the imminent gay apocalypse and the need to send him money.

  • dingojack

    Uh Delgaudio – they were printing forms*, nobody was forcing people to sign ’em at gunpoint. Unless you think those ‘petitions’** were already printed filled in, and in that case the only rational thing to say would be:

    PriNtINg hOW Doz it wUrK?!? @@



    * Let’s just pretend your little story is even slightly likely to be truthful

    ** If the boxes were ‘stacked to the ceiling’ how did you see they contained anything at all, and how did you know they were ‘pro-homosexual petitions? And all with such a superficial and rapid glace too.

  • eric

    Well, at least they are giving the same care and consideration to their fiction that they are giving to their policy arguments.

  • colnago80

    I should remind folks that this putz is a member of the Loudon County Board of Supervisors, not the Virginia State Legislature. Bad enough that the House of Delegates has assholes like Bob Marshall.

  • Ben P

    I’m sure someone said this in the original thread, but his verbiage choices in that story are pretty….interesting.

    “hidden deep in a nearly deserted stand of warehouses….Trembling with worry I went inside….boxes bulging with pro-homosexual petitions…..Dozens of men began moving toward me.

    That sounds like it could be straight from a bad romance novel.

  • Chiroptera

    Heh. Everytime I see Delgaudio’s name, I think of that very email.

    I wish he’d write his about “experiences” when he discovered the sinister conspiracy that McAuliffe was involved in!

  • acroyear

    i’ve got the long hair. i don’t have a pierced ear but I can fake it with a magnetic pair just for looks.

    I’ll do what i can, once the next election debates start up, ’cause I want this s.o.b. out of my town and out of my county (hell, rumor mill is that he doesn’t even actually really live here, but rather keeps a house in Falls Church as well in order to give his kids the better Fairfax County education that he’s not paying for by asserting residency in Loudoun – where he keeps cutting education spending and promoting NCLB testing).

    He didn’t used to be my rep, but I got stuck with him thanks to the county’s gerrymandering that gave the entire 9-seat board to the Republicans in spite of 4 generally Democratic-leaning regions.

  • d.c.wilson

    Dozens of “long-haired, earring-pierced” men exercising their First Amendment rights to petition the government for reddress of grievances? The horrors! How can we let something like this happen in America?

  • acroyear

    Besides, there was no reason to protest, since they put up an Ohio-style marriage amendment in 2006 in an effort to keep George Allen in office. Didn’t help Allen (he screwed the pooch with the racial slurs), but the amendment passed anyways and nothing McAuliffe can do can change that. It isn’t a law, it is the Constitution of the state, which McAuliffe is powerless to change.

    It is up to the attorney general (Herring, the Democrat who won on the very close recount) to decide whether or not VA will defend the amendment if it is challenged in Federal Court, and McAuliffe doesn’t have the power to stop Herring, no matter which choice he makes.

    Hoo boy, I love that story. You’d think it would get old, but it never does.

  • caseloweraz

    Damn, that Delgaudio fellow must be as good as James Bond. Bravely probing into a warehouse swarming with young male miscreants, he gets the goods on their nefarious endeavor and then, recognized, manages to escape from within the throng bent on stopping him.

  • caseloweraz

    “Founded in 1981, Public Advocate has sent volunteers to inaugurations since 1988…”

    Reminds me of the phrase often heard in military organizations: “Appoint a volunteer.”

  • cptdoom

    I realize this guy is a putz, and barely worth the effort to laugh at him, but I have to say it sticks in my craw when the pro-marriage equality position is described as an “attack” on traditional marriage. I don’t know of a marriage equality activist who doesn’t support traditional marriage (although there are more radical gays and lesbians who want to do away with the institution altogether, for everyone) and there is no jurisdiction in the world that, in any way, limited the ability of hetero couples to be married after the advent of recognized same-sex relationships.

    I come from a long line of the very marriages Delguadio and his ilk promote – maternal grandparents married nearly 40 years, paternal grandparents married over 55 years and parents married nearly 35 years, with all marriages ending only in the death of one spouse. My sister, my only sibling, is in the 22nd year of her marriage. I support(ed) all those marriages, as I’ve supported the marriages of friends, co-workers and 16 of my 17 first cousins (17th was gay and died before the advent of marriage equality), including many of their second and third marriages, and even some I was dubious about from the start (but, hey, it’s their lives).

    When you set out to stop the legal recognition of lesbian and gay couples, you are not defending marriage; you are defending heterosexual supremacy, pure and simple.

    Re acroyear @ #10

    Falls Church City resident here.

    I hope he lives in the Greater Falls Church area and not the City of Falls Church, which has its own school system.

    “… it was a stormy night when I drove…………..”

    In the wingnut universe that would be the script for an awe inspiring, award winning thriller. Special award for the soundtrack would go to RResurrection and the 12 disciples.

  • matty1

    That sounds like it could be straight from a bad romance novel.

    That’s an excellent point, Delgaudio needs a new career away from politics for the sake of pretty much everyone and this could be it. Do Mills and Boon do an unintentional homoeroticisim range?

  • marcus

    “…“long-haired, earring-pierced men” should show up and taunt him.

    Hey! I qualify (except for the gay part) but I would be more than happy to show up somewhere and taunt him severely.

  • Area Man

    I think every time he shows up to protest somewhere, a group of “long-haired, earring-pierced men” should show up and taunt him.

    Along with their huge inserters and bulging boxes.

    Seriously, I don’t know what’s funnier, the blatantly homoerotic language, or that Delgaudio fancies himself a real-life Batman, traveling to the warehouse district on a dark and stormy night and being instantly recognized by the bad guys as their nemesis.

    Where is Viginia? (see caption on the video) Is that where the wild vagina roams free?

  • acroyear

    Wolf’s moderate GOP seat may go to the Democrats after all. Wolf’s won significantly the last few elections due to the lack of any real support for the Democrats side, but recently the Democrats have been rallying on the state level in this area (eastern Loudoun, the most populated part of Wolf’s district besides Winchester) against the hard-right for electing McAuliffe’s replacement in the state senate – the GOP picked another religious nutcase Cuccinelli-type (and the moderate GOP person quit the party and is running as an independent).

    And at the congressional level, the same thing happened, the GOP candidate is Sen. Richard H. “Dick” Black, a right-winger so stupid he was willing to say there is no such thing as spousal rape (back in 2002). Even last year, on the abortion issue, he violated Godwin’s Law regularly.

    It *should* be easy to defeat these types of lunatics. The fact that it isn’t is extremely sad.

  • dingojack

    Those ‘100,000 petitions’ supporting the DDD weren’t stored in a warehouse during ‘a dark and stormy night’* by limp-wristed old white guys (with fabulous permed and rinsed hair) by any chance? @@



    * the whole fable sounds as if Edward Bulwer-Lytton was hired to write homo-erotic porn designed to subtly corrupt a Mormon bible-study group . Too bad he didn’t finished with: ‘And I would have gotten away with it too, if it weren’t for you meddling kids!’ (at least that would be semi-believable).
