When A Homophobic TEApublican Leaves A Voice Mail!

Richard Sheridan, a former Dallas City Council candidate was pummeled in his election on Saturday, winning only 28 votes. Furious, Sheridan focused his anger on Dan Koller, a reporter for D Magazine who he felt was responsible for his loss. This voice mail is incredibly abusive and profane – but it gives a glimpse into how deranged Tea Party-type homophobic lunatics really think, act, and feel.

Here’s the voicemail, along with some commentary uploaded to YouTube, by The Young Turks.



Americans Against The Tea Party is a group committed to exposing the Tea Party’s lies, violence, racism, ignorance, intolerance, bigotry, and corporatist fascist efforts to subvert our democratic process – and we are organizing to defeat Tea Party/GOP candidates on ballots everywhere.


  1. Good stuff and thanks for posting this but please do something about the subtitles. Sometimes they make absolutely no sense at all and have no resemblance to what is being said. It’s distracting at the very least.

  2. voice of reason

    If you would have done some investigation, you would find that this nut job votes in Democrat primaries.

  3. “When I see you, I’m not sure what I’m gonna do…… You will regret it…” Apparently the voters have spoken..we don’t need this loser on ANY city council ANYWHERE. Douche…I hope he reads these comments…

  4. There is something strangely chilling about the way some straight people sit around congratulating each other for having penis-vagina sex, as if it were some kind of an achievement or something.

  5. And now the backlash of the teaparty hate speech begins. People are finally seeing the truth about the teaparty and what they really stand for.

  6. it’s Texans like this bozo that makes me want to say I’m from anywhere but Texas.

  7. It does not require a reply…… The article, the person is exhaustive…. everyone should know what to think of this man if you are not as he is.

  8. He’s just a bully and he needs a good beat down. Fail fail fail you pitiful little man.

  9. I love his use of the word “Sodomite.” . The Bible gives two sets of reasons for their destruction. Ezekiel:”‘Now this was the sin of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy.

    Jude: And don’t forget Sodom and Gomorrah and their neighboring towns, which were filled with immorality and every kind of sexual perversion.

    Given that the Tea Party supports policies that amount to hating your enemy (who is your neighbor according to Matt. 5:43-44) and oppresses the poor, then what this man is would be, at best, a Sodomite calling another man a Sodomite because he (Sheridan) thinks they other man is a bigger Sodomite.

    Irony is lost of these people.

    • Well spoken. I have also been through many of the passages which “condemn homosexuality”, yet I have never been able to correlate those descriptors with modern gay lifestyles. I would posit that modern prisons with the problems of rape are closer to what the scriptures actually condemn. That makes me wonder how Conservatives can be so supportive of funding prisons and yet so self-righteous about moral and ethical people who also happen to be gay.

  10. Funny how the worst thing a homophobe can think of to call someone is “c–t.” I guess they don’t like women much, either.

    • You’re absolutely right. Homophobes hate gay men for betraying the patriarchy and (so they think) “making ourselves like women”, which is to say, inferior. Whereas lesbians “dare to try to raise themselves to the status of men”, and therefore must be put down (except when they’re having male-style sex for the delectation of men, because that’s hawt).

  11. Despicable. Such a sore loser.

  12. What an ignorant ass. If you made sure that everyone knew your opponent was gay, and you still lost by that great a margin, homosexuality obviously doesn’t matter as much to the electorate as it does to a bigot like you. Get over your brainwashed tea-party mentality. Oh, and learn some new cursing terms–calling someone a “c-nt over and over shows you don’t care any more for women than you do for “sodomites”. OMG! Sodomites–seriously? That’s the best you can come up with? Crawl back into the hole you teabagging idiots came from and don’t come out til you’ve evolved.

  13. from that attitude this guy displayed in this angry call it is a good thing he lost the election. hatefilled raving bigots should not hold public office.

  14. When the worst thing you can call someone is the private parts of a woman, the “C” word, you must not think very highly of women.

  15. He says that when he sees the reporter that he doesn’t know what he’ll do.

    What he’ll do, like the rest of the teacake cowards, is go kick rocks.

  16. He can’ even Cuss properly ! Sounds like a kid just making up stuff.

  17. Oh what an absolute disgrace…. this is just awful.. He is the coward.

  18. Guess he’ll never hold public office, except maybe in, Idaho, Mississippi, Alabama, North Dakota, Kansas, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and, um, Texas. 8)

  19. I worry about the 28 people that voted for him.

  20. Twenty eight votes out of ten thousand votes cast. You’d almost think that more people than that would have voted for him accidentally or by random choice.

  21. good progressive folks come from all over…maybe in different proportions but from all over nonetheless.

  22. Wah wah wah. It just shows how an uneducated baby talks when he is upset.
    Go Teabag your closet boyfriend you little bitch.

  23. My guess would be that he utilized his entire vocabulary on that message, the fact that he had to keep repeating himself tells me he doesn’t know any more words. His intellect would certainly suggest a VERY limited vocabulary.

  24. Interesting how many times he repeated the “C” word. Is this some indication that he has to demean someone sexually to affirm his masculinity?

  25. Remember this is Dallas where they ar proud of Killing a President
