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

I didn't write hate mail to Ms. Cho. I am wondering though, why someone would spend time and money to hear all the hateful stuff that comes out of her mouth? Care to share your thoughts on that?

Kinda like your posting here. Long on accusations and name calling, short on evidence. I'd live to see the content of the postings fro Ms. Cho's website, and the threads that you read from here to confirm your beliefs about us.

Your timing leaves a lot to be desired. Our brief little scuffle with the Margaret Cho trolls ended about two years ago.

Do you seriously mean to tell us that she's STILL talking about it now? Man, does she ever need to get a life. And some new material.

I have helpfully keyworded this thread "MARGARETCHO" so you can click on the keyword and see for yourself.

By the way, it's spelled "independEnt".

Independents don't select or influence the selection of federal judges. Voting for someone without regard to their party platform shows ignorance of the process.

Election of candidates shouldn't be a popularity contest.

Two points:

1) Disapproval of homosexual activity as unnatural and immoral is not to be equated with racist bigotry. Nor is it "homophobia," which would be the "fear" of homosexuals; disapproval does not equal fear.

2. An abortificant pill, which destroys an already-begun human life after conception, is not the same thing as a "contraceptive," which would prevent conception before it takes place.

Margaret Cho is not worth wasting verbiage on. She's an angry, twisted individual who cannot comprehend that just because she's gay, she is not entitled to be famous or respected.

And that distills the argument that most of us have the gay lobby. So someone is gay - that does not entitle them to any special privileges, nor do they have the right to force "acceptance" down the throats of those who religious or moral perspective says such behaviour is wrong. What we are seeing at present is the browbeating of the public, trying to force matters - one can't look at popular culture without seeing some celebration of "gay life", such as it is. Meanwhile, people of faith are demonised, ridiculed and called by the likes of Margaret Cho, intolerant. One wonders where their tolerance is.

How can you possibly identify comments on another web site as coming from "posters at Free Republic"?

The membership of this site is what, approaching 200,000 people? Who says everyone here is "conservative" (Except for DU and the liberal lefties, of course)

Posters get posting privileges here with almost no background check by the mods for their bona fides. Like you, for example?

Welcome to Free Republic. BTW- hate your nic because of the derogative female term. Suggests you don't think much of yourself, either.

Yes there are a few idiots here- but they are the minority, and are dealt with harshly if they do it on this site.

Go to Democratic Underground, MoveOn.org or any liberal website if you want to see some REAL filth.

Anyone who reads and understands what Margaret Cho says, compared to what folks write on FreeRepublic, will reach a fast and solid conclusion. We deal in facts. She deals in non-factual hysteria.

If you have any trouble with that, please go to Democratic Underground. They share Cho's distaste for facts and political prejudices. You'll feel quite comfortable, there.

Ms. Young, I agree with you. Homosexuals should get married; after all if two consenting adults want to get married why should they be stopped? I mean for the longest time I wanted to marry my sister, and she feels the same way. We both contribute to society; she's a psychologist at a college, and I'm a teacher. This would be a match made in heaven; no one knows her better than I do. Maybe after a few years of marriage we can find a consenting adult cousin and marry her to us then we will be one big happy family. Our kids would be brought up to respect any type of marriage union so long as those involved are happy. Wouldnt that be just peachy keen???

Please explain to us, without being an ignorant fool, why you believe
1. that conservatives advocate limiting the rights of people (give an example please)
2. that pharmacists should be forced to fill orders that violate their conscience or beliefs (do you also believe that doctors should be forced to perform abortions even if they recognize that it is the killing of an innocent human?)
3. that Dubya is limiting choice or freedom (this is one of the most ridiculous arguments made by liberals in decades since Dubya has done MORE to expand freedom and choice than any other president in the last dozen decades)
4. that anyone is making it easier for corporations to harm the environment.

Your biggest problem is that you paid money or at least gave up a couple of hours of valuable time that can never be regained to listen to the hateful and idiotic ranting of an embecile like Ms. Cho. Good luck with your studies. Please take some economics and business courses and try to take them from an instructor that understands free markets.

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.
