The media are lying about the content of North Carolina’s bathroom bill, but that hasn’t stopped washed-up 80’s musicians and politically correction corporations from pitching hissy-fits about it to demonstrate how hip and “tolerant” they are.
Aided by media that are both incompetent and often transparently biased, along with a burgeoning corporate culture that has discovered the economic benefits of public moral preening, we have what Stella Morabito aptly terms the “LGBT mafia:” a profoundly illiberal social movement rather single-mindedly determined to stamp out even minor and inconsequential dissent from its orthodoxy. It’s not going anywhere. In fact, it’s getting worse.
I have a really bad stomach flu, so I am going to make these points quickly. And they’re nothing I haven’t said before.
- A person should not have to surrender his Constitutional Rights (speech, association, religious conscience) just because he opens a business.
- No one suffers any actual physical or economic harm when someone else declines to bake a cake for them, or asks them to use the bathroom that corresponds to their birth certificate.
- The left doesn’t take religious belief seriously (except for Mohammedans, who must never be offended in any way). They think religion is a silly little hobby, and cannot fathom how a person’s behavior could be motivated by heartfelt religious belief. It’s easier to just call it “hate” and use it as an excuse to deny people their Constitutional Rights.
This whole thing has less to do with any sudden love the left has developed for trannies, and more to do with the left discovering that the vulgar use of power to bully people they don’t like feels damned good, and they’re going to keep doing it.
All the talk about bathrooms misses their point.
Every knee must be made to bend.
It’s not about the knee.
It’s not even about the bending.
It’s always about the making.
