FOX News is trying to make waves with a fantastic Facebook encounter from State Representative Brian Sims (D-PA), but Pennsylvania’s first openly gay legislator is not having it.
Last week, an internet troll targeted the Rep’s Facebook page with obscene, bigoted language, and Sims took the incident viral with this incredible response:
“David, I can’t tell if you’re just a really dumb little boy or an angry bigot but I know for sure that you shouldn’t have posted your grandmother’s telephone number on your Facebook page so many times. She and I just had a very disappointing chat about you. We’ll talk soon…”
Late to the game, but undeterred, FOX News published the story today, and again, Sims delivered a perfect response:
At a time when FOX and its extreme right allies are trying to cover up for its crimes and dangerous rhetoric with platitudes, it’s nice to know that Brian Sims is ready and willing to speak truth to the powerful.
And their grandmothers.
