Yeah, nothing makes liberals happy because it’s the fight that is the thing. I mixed it up a bit on Facebook on one of those sappy icon thinking people. What got to me was the endless repetition of the “live and let live” propaganda about same sex marriage. Anyone with a clue realizes that it’s basically a blatant lie, no one will be left alone if the SCOTUS rules there is a Constitutional right to same sex marriage. However, if you point this out, you get called names and are shunned for “bashing”. Apparently this is also seen as a religious based argument for some reason, although no basis for that was offered. My favorite bit, though was to told that “it’s the law, so suck it up and get over it” with regard to previous government interventions in society. I pointed out that the law makes same sex marriage illegal, so should its proponents also “suck it up and get over it”. This was not well received.
I was left with a strong sense of DOOM that the zeitgeist has shifted to not just tolerating but actively supporting a totalitarian state, as long as there’s a vote on it. That seems to be the meaning of “democracy” these days. Now that the MAL thinks it has won, the underlying intolerance and hate are no longer concealed. It is because of that that even victory is bitter ashes to the MAL.
P.S. Let’s add the Jesus Stomp Incident to the pile, as it’s another classic example of double standards.
