Please Explain!!!
5/13/05 | G.M. Young

Posted on 05/13/2005 6:47:37 AM PDT by independantbitch

Hello. I am a college student that has gotten interested in politics within the last few years. I come from a long line of independants who raised me to vote for whom I agree with the most, not based on party affiliation.

Last night, I attended a performance of Margaret Cho in Indianapolis. One of the last things she mentioned was all of the hatemail she recieved from members of Free Republic. I couldn't believe what I was hearing. Surely this has to be a joke. So when I got home, I read the hatemail on her website. Then I logged onto this site and read some more. It wasn't a joke.

Call me naive, but it seems to me that Margaret Cho is so "hateful" because, like me, she is angry and doesn't understand why people are so afraid of giving others equal rights. If gays and minorities contribute to the workforce, pay their taxes, and want to enjoy the rights that other Americans (straight whites) do, why shouldn't they be allowed that? What are conservatives so afraid of? It was interesting to me that when posters had no legitimate argument, they resorted to making comments about Cho's weight and race as a negative, which reminds me of how sixth graders behave. I was disgusted with the comments posted by the members, and it saddened me that these people are probably teaching their own kids racism, homophobia, and bigotry at home.

Please explain to me, without being so racist, bigoted, and just plain nasty as you were about Ms. Cho, why so many conservatives feel that it's perfectly fine to limit the rights of people they don't identify with, why it's okay for pharmacists to refuse contraceptives base on their own opinions, and why you believe that it's okay for Dubya to limit choice, freedom, and continue to make it easier for corporations to harm the environment.

It doesn't make sense to me, how seemingly intelligent people are so adament about taking a step backward. I would like to hear your thoughts, since I only have one Republican friend, and the only thing he'll say is that he's a Republican b/c his dad is, and that he's just against partial birth abortion.

P.S., I would especially like to hear from those of you who wrote the hatemail to Margaret Cho, because I am interested in what you have to say about this...

G.M. Young

A song, for your troubles...:


Alice In Chains - Grind
From the album "Alice In Chains"




In the darkest hole, you'd be well advised
Not to plan my funeral before the body dies, yeah
Come the morning light, it's a see through show
What you may have heard and what you think you know, yeah
Let the sun never blind your eyes
Let me sleep so my teeth don't grind
Hear a sound from a voice inside
Sure to play a part, so you love the game
And in truth your lies become one and same, yeah
I could set you free, rather hear the sound
Of your body breaking as I take you down, yeah
Let the sun never blind your eyes
Let me sleep so my teeth don't grind
Hear a sound from a voice inside
In the darkest hole, you'd be well advised
Not to plan my funeral before the body dies, yeah
Let the sun never blind your eyes
Let me sleep so my teeth don't grind
Let me sleep so my teeth don't grind
Hear a sound from a voice inside

Did it ever occur to you that the reason Cho gets hate mail is because she practices hate speech?

You made a wise choice in selecting that name.  You've banned yourself by refusing to follow the rather limited rules from the outset.

If gays and minorities contribute to the workforce, pay their taxes, and want to enjoy the rights that other Americans (straight whites) do, why shouldn't they be allowed that?

What rights do NON "straight whites" lack that everyone else has?  Blacks can't marry?  That's NOT the reason for illegitimacy in the black community, if that's what you're thinking.  In fact, they don't fit your cozy little racist sterotype, but black people can and do marry.  A gay man can't marry?  Last I checked he could, Michael Jackson for example.  He can't marry another man?  Guess what neither can I.  Would you support my wish to marry my wife's sister in addition to my wife?  Polygamy is a LOT more popular than gays wanting to get married, why don't you support that?

why it's okay for pharmacists to refuse contraceptives base on their own opinions

Why do liberals feel it's okay to force people to do things against their faith, so long as it's in lockstep with liberal dogma?

It doesn't make sense to me, how seemingly intelligent people are so adament about taking a step backward.

And you define forward as what, whatever liberal feel good orthodoxy says it is?  When we throw away all that society is based on, we end up with another typical liberal train wreck - Nazi Germany, Mao's China, Stalin's Russia, Pol Pot's Cambodia.  How many innocents do you need to murder before you realize your philosophy is not just deeply flawed and running counter to God and human nature, but downright evil.

You are right to ask questions, but somehow, I doubt you'll wait for the answers.  Margaret Cho can give you all you'll need.

When you say "I'm a college student who has gotten into politics in the last few years" I think what you're actually saying is that you saw that stupid Michael Moore movie Farenhype 911.

OK, you're naive. No, you're ignorant, uninformed, or just plain stupid. Margaret Cho is hateful because she is a self-loathing hateful fool. If she is angry, it is because others don't react to her hateful schtick with sympathy but rather with disdain (as she deserves). If she thinks people "are so afraid of giving others equal rights" then she, like you, is delusional. It's so easy to say "you people want to deny others rights", but that doesn't make it a valid statement. The fact is, nobody is trying to deny anybody's rights, but idiots like Cho don't bother with facts.

Excellent response.

If gays and minorities contribute to the workforce, pay their taxes, and want to enjoy the rights that other Americans (straight whites) do, why shouldn't they be allowed that?

Let's get something straight. If someone is born whatever color, fine, I have no problems with that. Gender: (the real chromosone related thing) no problem with that.

But some things in life are choices.

I am far from convinced that homosexuality is something programmed into the genetic code, otherwise there would not be the full-court press recruiting drive being blasted out of virtually every media and 'educational' orifice at my grandchildren and my family.

I am not homophobic. I am not afraid of homosexuals.

But I am, frankly, disgusted.

Especially by people who have made choices which they prefer not to keep to themselves, but who demand to bombard my grandchildren from an early age with the repugnant details of their perversions, and demand the right to do so, in an attempt to recruit them.

I will allow people their choices, but do not claim those choices as a basis for equality, any more than chosing to use drugs, and DO NOT MESS WITH MY KIDS.

I am more offended when these people would make a travesty of the Holy and Sacramental union of marriage by demanding they be allowed to marry, or be considered as the equal of a couple which in my belief system God ordained, when He finds their practices (as do I) an abombination.

When anyone proclaims that, by virtue of their particular perversion, they somehow have the right to rub the rest of society's noses in their affairs, they invite attack.

I made none of the claimed 'attacks' on the woman in question. But if the defense of all I consider decent must come at the expense of her claimed right to proseletyze perversion, so be it.

If someone decides to be less than equal, and claims a right to be equal, that will carry no more weight with me than deciding to dig ditches and claiming a right to be paid as well as a Doctor.

In case no one told you, actions have consequences.

DANG, I just can't win, first I get busy over at the WFTD, then when I see this ping, I can't get the VK's up and active (they glare balefully "Troll? what Troll? it's a Friday!!" So after some VERY careful negotiations and lectures concerning Duty, Honor, and Vountry, I get "Tigger the Merciless to open her eyes and agree to the Zot.

But, by the time I drag the VK to answer the Zotfather's Orders, the Troll has been banished, gone, destroyed, by the all-powerful moderators.. Tigger is not pleased. amd is ready to admisister the dreaded "one claw of retribution" to gwmoore/

But, duty calls, herewith the reluctant VK and the ZOT.

SORRY TROLL, YOU HAVE AWAKENED A SLEEPING GIANT


THIS VIKING KITTY HAS SENTENCED YOU TO THE ZOT!!

I don't like Margaret Vho either, so she gets the ZOT as well !!!!

You are so pathetic, I don't even know where to start! You are a product of "critical thinking" that is being brainwashed in our public education system. If you can't see what my point of view is, you should seriously question what you have been taught and try to come to a few conclusions of your own thinking. As Molder said, "The truth is out there", it's up to you to go find it!

Cho, in her own words:

I had this really irresponsible boyfriend. I was having such a bad time in my life, and my lost fame kept coming up as the reason why ... and I got pregnant, and I had to have an abortion, so I went to the doctor to have an abortion, and I'm having the abortion, and the doctor said, "You know, when you had your TV show, it really didn't capture who you are as a comedian. And I think if you go back and do it again, that you should really strive for more creative control." And I said, "You know what? That's fine, but could you just kill my baby?"

Charming lady, isn't she? *rolling eyes*

yet you do, why??

Mainly because liberal scum like you do so.

my question (to anyone) is what special privleges? i have never heard anything stated by anyone gay requesting "special privileges".

Oh? Shall we talk to the citizens of Toronto who were told that a beauty pageant for women was not on, yet one for she-males was?

next thing was "those who (i think you meant whose) religious or moral perspective says such behaviour is wrong." so your religion tells you that something is wrong? if you think something is wrong- Don't do it. if you stand for or against something- by all means voice your opinion about it. but the problem with society (both conservative and liberal) is that they think they should be able to enforce those opinions and beliefs on the rest of us.

Liberal bottom feeders such as yourself want to force society into "acceptance" not "tolerance". There is a difference. Tolerance means you go your own way. "Acceptance" means we're forced to silence any criticism.

whatever happened to live and let live? until we all agree to disagree there will never be any kind of balance in society. this will only lead to war. aren't we civil and mature enough not to have civil war II?

As previously stated, it's not tolerance you're after or "live and let live". You're not going to be happy until everyone "accepts" the homosexual lifestyle as "normal" or at least is forced to "accept" it publicly. That's not tolerance, that's not live and let live - that's shoving your belief system down someone else's throat.

And pardon me if I want to shove my boot so far up your arse that your breath will smell like shoe polish for a month for telling me what I may or may not think.
