The Internet home for American gay conservatives.

Yeah, this whole thing is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard. There is just so much application of double standards it is barely believable, even after all of the other stuff the left has done. I guess it just takes a long time to get used to this sort of moronic behaviour. I mean, more than half of Americans oppose gay marriage, as do a majority of Black people. Is Chicago going to ban Black churches? That is just one of the many, many ways that the sheer stupidity of this thing can be illustrated.

That cartoon might have a valid point if Obama had ever said anything remotely equivalent to Chick-fil-A founder Dan Cathy’s pronouncement:
I think we are inviting God’s judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at him and say we know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage. And I pray God’s mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude that thinks we have the audacity to redefine what marriage is all about.

Obama cannot issue such a statement because he is a marxist atheist.
Mr Cathy’s sentence ia not against Gays, it is against the redefinition of marriage. Too bad the left is not nuanced as they claim to be.

There is no law preventing same sex couples from entering into committed relationships.

So let’s be clear about this. The cartoon poses the question: Why weren’t you clowns picketing Obama when He opposed gay marriage? And Richard R answers, in effect: Because we knew He didn’t really oppose it. In other words, we knew He was kidding lying.

(continued) Meanwhile, Louis Farrakhan says the equivalent of Cathy’s statement and worse – and with the support of Dem leaders, such as Mayor Emanuel. Why aren’t those clowns out picketing the Nation of Islam? Or Chicago City Hall?

Newsflash, Richard R: I happen to agree with Mr. Cathy’s view. And I was gay before it was cool. But then, I have a moral compass and you, apparently, don’t.

I vividly recall the quandary my Left-leaning pals suffered when Whole Foods CEO John Mackey in the WSJ’s Op Ed a few years ago. He voiced his concerns and grievances about ObamaCare, which was at the time (and still is in some circles) tantamount to racism. There were faint calls for a boycott, a smattering of uneasy op-ed rebuttals. Since many of my left-wing amigos make it a point to buy their groceries solely at Whole Foods, they were at a loss. Eventually, the entire matter was abruptly swept under the rug.
Had Mr. Mackey shared Mr. Cathy’s views on gay marriage, would he had suffered the same wrath?

ILC: You got the same thing in 2004, when it was pointed out that President Bush and John Kerry had the same stance on gay marriage. When asked why one was okay and the other wasn’t, the Left (gay or otherwise) said the reason was that they were pretty sure Kerry was lying.
When asked why it was good for Kerry to lie but bad for Bush to lie, no answer was given.

Because, ILC, Richard Rush and his fellow Obama gays operate under a very simple and primitive set of rules: we will beat you up unless you beat us up more.
Richard Rush and his fellow Obama gays know what would happen if they picketed the Nation of Islam’s restaurant or, even better, staged a “kiss-in” therein; they would get the crap beaten out of them.
Furthermore, Rahm Emanuel, the Obama Party, and the media would side with the Nation of Islam for doing it and blame them for being “provocative”.
Since Richard Rush has no comprehension that there are people out there other than the Obama Party and the media, both of which share Richard Rush’s racist bigotry, then, they see Chick-Fil-A as an easy target; the racist bigot Obama hates it, the racist bigot Obama Party hates it, and the racist bigot media hates it. Therefore, Richard Rush and his fellow bigots can do whatever they want to Chick-Fil-A and the racist bigot Obama Party and media will cover for them.
Fortunately, as I tweeted this weekend, it seems to be backfiring. Even better, it associates racist bigots like Richard Rush and their tactics with the Obama Party, and it makes clear to people that gay-sex marriage supporters like Richard Rush are in fact fascist totalitarians who will destroy churches, careers, businesses, and lives unless you kneel before them and do their leftist bidding.
The liar fascist Richard Rush has completely destroyed any argument about his “constitutional rights” when he began advocating and supporting laws and legal force being used against people for expressing their opinion. It is beyond amusing that Richard Rush screams that society be forced to recognize his beliefs and that society should punish anyone who disagrees with him, and that he thinks his argument is the least bit “constitutional”.

Only for a little while. Until it was pointed out that Whole Paycheck’s co-founder was known for being a little eccentric and, you know, sometimes says things he really doesn’t mean.
Even without that type of faux pas, he’s still known around Austin as “Wacky Mackey”.
