Even Andrew Sullivan Is Disgusted with the Gay Left

The hounding of Brendan Eich has inspired Andrew Sullivan to direct some disapprobation toward some people who actually deserve it for a  change.

His flaw lies in assuming the progressive left wants a “tolerant and diverse society.” They don’t. Read the responses to his Tweet. Most of them are totally on-board with intolerance and witch-hunts.

The gay left is reveling in their power to ruin anyone whose opinion is not in line with what they consider acceptable. As I said before, they are only going to get more obnoxious.

Nick Adds: Naturally, Mozilla closed comments on their milquetoast post about ‘diversity’ in relation to their decision. (Trackbacks are open, but such a cowardly and pandering move doesn’t deserve the mention, so sorry GP fans, you’ll have to search it out yourself.) How disgusting. I think it was Greg Gutfeld who said (something along the lines of): Diversity is great until you point out any way in which people are different.

Andrew (who I once respected immensely) gets a rare broken-clock nail-on-the-head here. As someone who’s perplexed by the Gay Kommunity’s fascination with marriage (why anybody would actively invite the government to involve itself in his personal relationships is beyond me and the topic of a million other posts I’ve written or at least considered writing, but beside the point…), I find their suppressionist approach is stomach-wrenching in its hypocrisy considering the alleged and self-declared oppression of this subset of society.

After All, It’s Not Called the “Human Protection Agency”

Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency went all Tuskegee on some Americans, so they could justify their economy-crippling Eco-Agenda.

The Environmental Protection Agency has been conducting dangerous experiments on humans over the past few years in order to justify more onerous clean air regulations.

The agency conducted tests on people with health issues and the elderly, exposing them to high levels of potentially lethal pollutants, without disclosing the risks of cancer and death, according to a newly released government report.

In a similar vein, once the Obama Administration and their Union allies took over General Motors (with the help of many billions of taxpayer dollars), promoting the “success story” (“GM is Alive and Bin Laden is dead”) became much more important than the safety of those who purchased Government Motors products. Hence, while the Obama administration was publicizing non-existent defects in the vehicles of competing, non-union car companies, they were hiding a deadly defect in their own product that killed at least 13 people.

The fix for a faulty ignition switch linked to 13 traffic deaths would have cost just 57 cents, members of Congress said Tuesday as they demanded answers from General Motors’ new CEO on why the automaker took 10 years to recall cars with the defect.

But if history teaches us anything, it’s that where socialism goes, death follows. The state is always more important than the people.

Progressives: Not Fans of Free Speech

Interesting post over at the Volokh Conspiracy analyzing the dissent of the left-wing Supreme Court Justices in the recent McCutcheon campaign contribution case. This summation does not do it justice, so, by all means read the whole thing.

The takeaway is this: To the Conservative Right, Free Speech is a basic human right. To the Progressive Left, Free Speech is a civil right, that is only worthy of protection to the extent that it serves the interest of the State. The dissent in McCutcheon relies on the latter conception of speech to justify limiting people’s ability to participate in the political process.

Justice Breyer’s dissent today shows the way, as he revives the old Progressive conception of freedom of speech as serving instrumental purposes (which he calls “First Amendment interests”), rather than protecting individual rights or reining in potential government abuses.

We on the right see the world very differently from our opponents on the left. You may also note that all four “liberal” justices agreed that Free Speech is only a right to the extent that it advances the state’s interests.

Our freedoms are hanging by a very slender thread indeed.

BTW, Democrats have responded to the McCutcheon ruling with the usual deranged histrionics. However, none of them have put their newly found outrage into practice by renouncing donations from George Soros, Tom Steyer, or any of the other lefty billionaires financing Democrat campaigns.

Lesbians in Germany have demanded, and been granted, a Lesbians-Only Cemetery.

A 400-square-meter (4,300-square-foot) area of the Lutheran Georgen Parochial cemetery, established in 1814 in central Berlin, will be reserved as a graveyard for up to 80 lesbians, said Usah Zachau, a spokeswoman for the Safia association, a national group primarily for elderly lesbians.

The association said it had created a burial area to be inaugurated Sunday, as a space “where life and death connect, distinctive forms of cemetery culture can develop and where the lesbian community can live together in the afterlife.”

Climate change is real

…It’s just probably not man-made.

Bruce re-tweeted this graphic from Sam Thiessen’s stream. I don’t necessarily agree with its exact argument about volcanism. But it is a nifty reminder that we’ve always had climate swings – and our latest swing is within the natural norms:

swings in global temperatures, 2500 BC to 2007 AD

From what I understand (feel free to update me/everyone in the comments), the man-made CO2 increases are insufficient to explain any of these swings, and recent atmospheric measurements show a distinct *lack* of effects or “signature” that should come from any CO2 Greenhouse effect.

Given that, and given the normality of global climate change, there is precious little reason to blame it on humankind. The major advocates of Blaming Man are people with axes to grind: they want to keep getting their multi-billions of research & conference grants, they want their companies to be given government subsidies, they want world socialism, etc.

No, it isn’t Tina Fey:

As Ed at Hot Air says, “Maybe Jimmy Fallon really does want to follow Jay Leno’s tradition of full-political-spectrum comedy.”
