No Class: Guardian UK Attacks “Right-Wing Critic Debbie Schlussel”, Calls Me Gay; UPDATE: Guardian Columnist Says He Didn’t Call Me Gay

**** UPDATE: Guardian columnist Steven Wells writes to tell me that he didn’t call me gay. Instead, he compared me to Hitler. Well, that makes it so much better. See update below. ****
The Guardian Unlimited (which I still remember as the less conceited “The Guardian of London”) has reached a new nadir. Guardian music and pop culture columnist Steven Wells is upset that I apparently have made it “in vogue” to attack far-left superhero movies.
I’m glad he recognizes me (in a very backhanded way) for the very positive (he hates it) trend I started. But he does so with a not-so-veiled, low-class lesbian reference to Ann Coulter and those who’ve followed my lead:

Guardian UK:

Attack PC “Superman” & Bingo! – You Are a Lesbo

Carpet-chewing Ann Coulter wannabes have attacked the superhero community en masse ever since right-wing critic Debbie Schlussel suckerpunched Superman for the hideous liberal crime of not flying to Fallujah and kicking islamofascist ass in the movie Superman Returns (in her essay entitled “”).

Yup, attack Superman and Islamic fundamentalism, and . . . you is a butch ho’ lesbian. Very obvious logic. Oh, and by the way, Mr. Wells, the correct term is carpet-munching, NOT carpet-chewing. If you’re going to make a baseless insult against me, you should at least get it right.
Because everyone knows that if you criticize others for not attacking Islamic fascism and fighting terrorism, you’re a female gay. Not brushcuts, WNBA season tickets, lunch dates with Hillary, and a thing for the Dinah Shore Golf Classic. Those aren’t cues. But being upset that Superman is a girlie-man–that’s what indicates you are a female fruity pebble.
I can assure you, Steven, I’m very straight. Though, you for certain will never get the chance to find that out, and I promise I will never try to determine whether you’ve had backseat travails with Elton John and George Michaels (a strong likelihood given your whimpering over Superman–hello . . .?).
For the record, Steven. I don’t like English men because they are, well, very like you . . . wimpy and effeminate. I like red-blooded, macho American men who own guns and punch people like you out for sport. And I don’t make apologies for it. Yes, there are some American men left who haven’t become girlie-men–your Islamo-pandering country’s new national icon.
But I can see why you like the new, girlie, burgundy-caped Supe and are very bothered that I’d insult your new boyfriend.
Truth, Justice, and All That Other Stuff.”
**** UPDATE: Guardian columnist Steven Wells writes, saying that he didn’t say I was gay. Instead, I’m like Hitler for attacking Superman:

Hey Debbie,
Steven Wells here.
Thanks for the mention. I have to admit the lesbian angle never occurred to me (isn’t that carpet munching?)
Carpet chewing is a reference to that other right wing demagogue, Adolf Hitler, whom, it was rumoured, used to chew the carpet (an actual carpet, one assumes) when ever he got too right wing.
I think the carpet chewing was invented by British propagandists. I don’t think they were saying Hitler was gay. But it’s great to see that your own standards are so high when it comes to detecting homophobia.
Keep it up!
A quick look on Google will set you right.
Steven Wells

Touche. You didn’t call me gay. You called me Hitler. So much more comforting.

Believe me, Debbie, I have family over in the UK, and not all Brits are tea and crumpet imbibing pansies like this guy.

I’m a bit confused. I thought liberals like Guardian U.K. commend homosexuals. For this Steve character to call you a lesbo would strike him somewhat as being homo/lesbophobic, would’nt you agree? Maybe he was alluding to something or perhaps he feels intimidated by your work. Or maybe he lacks balls to challenge your logic so he resorts to name calling and obscenities like most high class lefists do when they can’t win an argument. Been there done that through out my college career. They are all such despicable overgrown babies.

Hi Debbie, please don’t tar all of us Brits with the same brush – there are still some of us here that are red-blooded and are not lily-livered “liberal” wimps (even though we can still be moved by your touching tribute to your late father).
Some of us salute and support our US allies, and I for one almost always agree with the views you so forthrightly and eloquently espouse. Keep up your fine work, and do pay us a visit sometime soon.

Any insult from the Guardian, a paper known for the loud baying of its left wing, holier than thou readers/writes who preach at one and all should be taken as a compliment.

I liked Superman Returns.
Debbie…I gotta know what your beef is with this movie.

“Carpet chewing Ann Coulter wannabees”? The hyprocrisy abounds! Aren’t lefties supportive of the gay agenda? Then why the name-calling, and the demeaning slurs? This infantile moron infers that Coulter fans are lesbians only because he’s too stupid to challenge her on issues. And they let this guy write newspaper articles?

Debbie: Steven is a charter member, it appears, of the “New Castrati” — wouldn’t dare offend anybody (heaven forbid!), a moral relativist, multi-culturalist acolyte of algore and anthropogenic “global warming,” lover of Gaia, and nothing else, best friend of the Islamo-whackjobs (who’d cut his head off at their first opportunity) — your basic, generic Wimp. The fact that he’s British just makes his “wimphood” worse!

I can guarantee this Steven Wells has a mouthful of rotten, crooked teeth. He most likely is a snaggletooth. Most Brits are.

Wells needs “sensitvity training”
(a la Michael Savage and Matt Sanchez):

Stephen Wells is a complete and total “dweebe” and his head is best used for a hatrack!
There is another Stephen – Steven Nary in a new book “What’s the Matter with California” and I am wondering just what happened to him courtesy of gays?
My one final remark – anyone who gives my “adopted” daughter Debbie a bad time will answer to me and God help him/her!

I love this line: I like red-blooded, macho American men who own guns and punch people like you out for sport. lol. It’s so typical of left-wing fascists to label people like us Nazis. The things the left gets away with.

Look up her movie review in the archives. She wrote the new superman was effeminate and the producers just had to throw Lois Lane in as a single mother into the plot.
I agree with her assessment. The New Superman was portrayed as a feminine version of our favorite Super Hero.
I was in awe of the new special effects as was Debbie.
