The Gay mafia lets the mask slip. Will Republicans seize the moment?
Patriot Update – Calvin Freiburger – 9/10/2013
So far, redefiners have enjoyed the benefit of seeming like they’re the ones who want only to live and let live, with conservatives pegged as the ones using government to cast judgment on gay Americans’ private lives. It’s a massive caricature, but an effective one that appeals to many people’s intuitions when it’s all they hear on the subject.
But this latest wave of persecution—fines, coercion, intimidation, blacklisting, even possible jail time—turns that completely on its head. Suddenly, the redefiners have assumed the role of the tyrants who refuse to live and let live, and traditionalists are the ones facing not only oppression, but oppression of a kind far more literal and tangible than gay couples who can’t get marriage licenses but otherwise remain free to live and love each other however they wish.
The truth is, the Left was never going to be content with legal recognition for gay unions. Thought reconditioning via state power was always part of the plan.
So now that the plan’s latest step has been laid bare, let’s see how many well-intentioned Americans who thought they were merely being gay-friendly by siding with redefinition are willing to go along with it.
Let’s see how many Democrats are comfortable having it hung around their necks.
Let’s see if they’ve got a good explanation for why people should be relegated to second-class citizen status for opposing something their party has only supported for a year—for holding a belief President Obama claimed to share for the majority of his first term.
Let’s see if The One can square it with his belief that “our democracy might work a bit better if we recognized that all of us possess values that are worthy of respect,” as he expressed in The Audacity of Hope.
And let’s see how many voters are convinced by assurances that churches aren’t the Tolerance Inquisition’s next target.
