Attention – Libs and the media: I am not a bigot, homophobe or racist. I just disagree with you.
Don’t worry, I’m not angry in the least when you scream I’m any or all of the above – I know it’s not personal – you’re just directing the ad hominen at me because I identify as a conservative. If I were a liberal or Democrat, you wouldn’t utter a peep – by Joe “The Plumber” Wurzelbacher.
Case in point: Who said the following after the signing of the original “Religious Freedom Restoration Act” that just became law in Indiana? Bet you can’t guess and no fair Googling..
“We all have a shared desire here to protect perhaps the most precious of all American liberties — religious freedom.
.. Today this event assumes a more majestic quality because of our ability together to affirm the historic role that people of faith have played in the history of this country, and the constitutional protections those who profess and express their faith have always demanded and cherished.
The free exercise of religion has been called the first freedom, that which originally sparked the development of the full range of the Bill of Rights..“
That was none other than the homophobic, bigoted, anti-gay President Bill Clinton.
That’s right – President Clinton himself proudly signed the original RFRA 20 years ago with overwhelming support by a Democratic-majority Congress and sponsored by none other than that gay-hating, Bible-thumping, bigot Chuck Schumer!
I know you’re saying: “But that was ancient history‼ Waaaaaa‼ We’ve evolved‼ Waa”… Shut-up.
Here’s my favorite and most germane part of Bill Clinton’s speech about the need for a Federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act:
“.. Our Founders cared a lot about religion. And one of the reasons they worked so hard to get the First Amendment into the Bill of Rights, at the head of the class, is that they well understood what could happen to this country, how both religion and government could be perverted if there were not some space created and some protection provided.”
The key word here is “perverted” and I’m not talking about Bubba being serviced under the Oval Office desk by a chubby intern his daughter’s age. “Perverted” is what we’re buying into here with all the outrage over the passage of Indiana’s RFRA legislation – which is very similar to Bill Clinton’s RFRA .
When people support businesses threatening to move out of Indiana, the NCAA considering relocating tournaments and the media writing headlines with the phrases; “Anti-Gay Legislation”; “Bigoted Governor”; or “Legalizing Hate.”
The meaning of “faith” has been perverted, the concept of “freedom” has been perverted and the very fabric of what made this the greatest and most benevolent country in history is being perverted.
The effort by the left and it’s lapdog press to enforce and codify political correctness continues to erode our fundamental Rights as laid out in The Constitution and The Bill of Rights.
I don’t like the idea of same sex marriage, I believe it to be wrong. It doesn’t end bigotry or get rid of discrimination, it only changes the definition of traditional marriage and that’s been my answer when asked.
When I give that answer, I am labeled by the left as a hateful, bigoted homophobe. Doesn’t matter that I have friends who are homosexual, or that it’s not the issue when it comes to friendship anymore than someone who doesn’t allow you to smoke in their house or around their children.
Do they hate you? No, they just don’t want you smoking around their kids. But I digress..
Truth is, if I decided I could not be friends with someone because I disagreed with their choices, hell, I wouldn’t have any friends. Yes, I have gay friends – does that mean I agree with their lifestyle? No, but does that make them less of a person? Pa-lease.
I have a buddy that is a homosexual, but he doesn’t’ let it define who he is. In my eyes what defines him and why I like him is because he has character. He believes in a lot of the same things I do. He is intelligent, driven and I believe one day will make this world a better place.
Do I have to mention that President Obama voted for RFRA legislation when he was in the Illinois Legislature?
“Waaaaa – he evolved! He’s the first gay president..” Shut up.
No one, not even leftists; anarchists, MSNBC hosts, Occupy protestors, or Maoist wannabees believe Obama “evolved.”
David Axelrod, a former top political aide to Obama, wrote in his book last month that Obama believed in same-sex marriage before he ran for the White House, but hid that position for political reasons.
I know, I know – you say I am a racist because I don’t like Obama. Wrong again, wedding cake breath – I don’t like Obama because I believe he is bad for America. There are many Black men that I would love to see as President, because they inspire and they’re leaders.
Herman Cain is a good friend of mine that I think would have made an incredible President. But you on the left don’t think he is black enough. Alan West, Ben Carson, Sheriff David Clarke, Condi Rice, Kevin Jackson – all black Americans the left loves to hate and calls them “Uncle Tom’s” because they dare to think independently from the liberal plantation.
But that’s how it is with liberals – its textbook Alinsky and his “Rules for Radicals.” Deride, demean and accuse someone of hate when you can’t win on the merits. Remember that political correctness is nothing more than folks saying something they don’t believe. It’s the stifling of honest interaction – used as a weapon by the left. At its core, PC is a lie.
Case in point: Hillary Clinton said this about the signing of Indiana’s RFRA:
“Sad this new Indiana law can happen in America..”
A lot of sad things happen in America Hillary, including your husband humiliating your young daughter in public, you enabling it and sticking by him for your own political ambitions.
Sad, indeed when you tell the father of a SEAL murdered in Benghazi you’re going to; “Make sure the person who made that YouTube Film is arrested..” Sad when you have your emails destroyed; sad when you testify; “What difference does it make?”
Sad that you have more tricks up your sleeve than a hooker. But I digress..
So what is Indiana’s “Religious Freedom Restoration Act” anyway and why is Hillary Clinton so upset about it? Is it really “a license to discriminate against gays”?
The Indiana RFRA legislation allows a person’s free exercise of religion to be “substantially burdened” by a law ONLY if the law furthers a “compelling governmental interest.”
In other words: It depends. Sometimes the courts rule in favor of religious exemptions, sometimes not. Problem is, the left is not honest about what it is, and what it isn’t – unless it’s Bill Clinton and Chuck Schumer with their wet fingers in the air. Then it’s all good, baby. We’ll just evolve, don’t worry.
Conservatives look to history, of course, for the facts and even some liberals dare to speak the truth:
“.. In the decades that states have had RFRA statutes, no business has been given the right to discriminate against gay customers, or anyone else.”
— Stanford law professor Michael McConnell
Nevertheless, the righteous NCAA is considering not holding events in Indiana; Apple executives have their panties in an iWad; the CEO of SalesForce is pulling out of Indiana (they happily do business in China!) and San Francisco is banning all taxpayer-funded travel to the state.
That last one may get everyone on board with the RFRA, when you think about it. On a side note: Miley Cyrus is outraged! Her tongue refuses to cross the State line into Hoosier territory..
The best, thou, is Hillary Clinton’s evolved “outrage.” She’s another one I doubt ever believed in the definition of marriage as being between; “One Woman and One Horny Redneck.”
Does she even realize the irony of her words or how people laugh at her when she tweets over the weekend; “We shouldn’t discriminate against ppl bc of who they love”.. ?
I guess the only question left is will Hillary Clinton still accept campaign funds from Indiana?
