Not long ago, some reader sent me something from “Equality California” where its prejudiced leader Geoff Kors was breathlessly reporting that people who opposed gay marriage were motivated by “hate.” I replied that anything that anything that highly partisan Democrat said should be taken with a grain of salt because he was so keen to find hatred among his ideological adversaries.
Mr. Kors acts as if every person who doesn’t support his agenda on gay issues does so because of some kind of animus against gay people. Only he doesn’t use such eloquent language, preparing to use various forms of the word, “hate,” either as verb (“to hate”), noun (“hate”,”hatred”), adjective (“hateful”) to describe social conservatives harboring un-PC opinions of homosexuality.
And yet, as per Nick’s post yesterday, Mr. Kors’ prejudice against those who do not share his worldview is, in many ways, the prevailing attitude among the politically educated gay class. They have determined, as Nick put it, “an uncanny knack for painting opponents of their agenda as being full of ‘hate’.”
Like Obama Democrats seeking to discredit their opponents by questioning their motives to create an excuse for dismissing their arguments without debating them, gay leftists wish to smear their adversaries so as to press ahead with their agenda without making their case.
Perhaps that’s it, perhaps there’s something more to it than that. And were I not traveling and spending time with my family, I might give it more thought. Perhaps tomorrow when I return to the open road.
Nick made a great point which bears repetition and re-articulation–and serious consideration. Why is it that gay leftists wish to paint anyone who disagrees with their agenda as “haters”? Note how many of their number insist on calling us “self-hating.”
ADDENDUM: And this relates closely to the point I have made repeatedly wondering why gay marriage advocates prefer to smear their adversaries than make the case for gay marriage.
