Fresh from its “victory” over Duck Dynasty, the Fascist, Christian-Hating Bully-Boys and Bully-Womyn of GLAAD successfully threatened and intimidated old comedian Bob Newhart into canceling a scheduled appearance for a group of Catholic Businessmen. Ace comments:
GLAAD demands that Christians (fundmentalists, Catholics, those who believe in the inerrancy of the Bible) renounce a core part of their selves in order to join polite society. If they refuse, they will be excluded from society, by use of social pressure to harass, insult, humiliate, ostracize, and economically marginalize those Christians who do not fall into line.
Is GLAAD’s position so weak, so intellectually indefensible, that it cannot prevail in reasoned debate, and therefore all opposition must be bullied into silence? This is how America becomes divided and balkanized; because groups like GLAAD make civil disagreement impossible. “I disagree with what you say, but I will fight for our right to say it,” has become, “I disagree with what you say, and I will fight to see that you lose your job for saying it.”
And some will say, “Well, it’s all right, because the Government isn’t doing it, it’s just a private group.” No, it’s just technically legal for a private group to do it, that doesn’t make it right. The end result is a divided nation where civil debate is impossible.
