Skip to comments.Ari Fleischer: Why the House must pass ENDA (Remember-the Bushes are CONSERVATIVES!)
Posted on 11/07/2013 6:22:53 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
On Thursday, the U.S. Senate passed legislation to protect gay employees from job discrimination with an overwhelming bipartisan vote. Republicans should support these protections, and I hope the GOP leadership in the House schedules the bill for a vote. Its the morally right thing to do. No one should lose their job, or not get hired, because of their sexual orientation.
Allowing people to be successful in their workplaces is an essential piece of individual opportunity and liberty. Working for a living is one of Americas freedoms. Its a virtue to be encouraged and supporting it is important to the future of the Republican Party. In an era in which the government often punishes hard work and individual success, this bill encourages it.
Since the 1960s, Congress has passed laws ensuring that employers cant discriminate on the basis of race, religion or gender personal characteristics that have nothing to do with how well someone does his or her job. These laws are widely accepted throughout our society. Who among us today would say an employer should have the right to fire someone because of their faith or the color of their skin?(continued)

No, it doesn’t have to pass it.
If these people would STFU and not carry their being queer on their back like a sign, they wouldn’t have to worry about it.
Bushes aren’t even close to conservative and the queers can go piss up a rope!!
The color of one's skin is not a moral choice. Sexual deviancy is.
If an employer doesn't want to be around a deviant all day (much less pay him out of his own pocket) the he shouldn't be FORCED by the Federal Gov't to do so.
Anti-discriminaton laws, almost by definition, create protected classes of employees. This feeds into affirmative action, which leads to less-than-the-best people being hired, attempted indoctrination of all employees that they must never utter bad things about protected employees which, ultimately has led to an evil man becoming President of the United States.
Equal freedom and equal opportunity for all. No more “protected classes.”
Where have all the ‘bushbots’ gone?
No one is going to force me to have a pierced tattooed homo sitting at my reception desk because they want that job.
They can start their own enterprises and do whatever the hell they want.
Advertisers make big, big money from homosexuals- they have less appreciation of ‘value’ than even dumb sluts.
So the media loves them and will reward any politician who nurtures them- it’s money in their pockets.
will the discriminatory act of quota hirings end as well?? oh wait- its okay to discriminate against whitey....
The abrogation of private property rights continues unabated in Mordor on the Potomac. Hat tip, Mike Church. Anyone still think we don’t need a A5CC?
What a distraction. Gays/Transgendered aren’t being fired across the nation en masse.
Fleischer ought to be condemning this timewaster and demanding Reid pass a budget to end the Continuing Resolution drama.
As soon as they figure out how to make a couple million each off of it, they will pass it.
Sure the House can vote on it—after Harry Reid scheduled votes on all of the House bills that have been sent to the Senate. Until then he can go to Hell.
Deviants apparently have the right to work wherever they please. The employer, being the one who provides the job; has no say in the matter.
Mitt Romney 1994:
We have discussed a number of important issues such as the Federal Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), which I have agreed to co-sponsor, and if possible broaden to include housing and credit, and the bill to create a federal panel to find ways to reduce gay and lesbian youth suicide, which I also support.
Homosexuals are already protected in the federal government.
where DOI’s Salazar says: “ - - the Department’s long-standing policy that any type of unlawful discrimination or harassment will not be tolerated and must not occur. This policy affirms the Department’s zero tolerance for discrimination and harassment on the bases of race, color, national origin, religion, sex (including pregnancy and gender identity), age, disability, sexual orientation - - - “
Religious schools and organizations should NOT be required to have openly gay employees. That would violate their freedom of religion which considers the gay lifestyle an abomination.
The Freedom of Religion isn't just for religious organizations. It is for Americans. If my religious beliefs tell me it is wrong to hire such a person I have the same rights as a religious organization.
This is true, but reverse sexism, where homosexuals in leadership positions favor hiring other homosexuals, is also wrong (though frequently practiced).
But also note that the states have never delegated to the feds, via the Constitution, the specific power to regulate workplace issues that don't fall under the Constitution's Clause 17 of Section 8 of Article I.
Constitution-ignoring Democrats and RINOs in DC are beating the drums concerning this issue undoubtedly to win votes from low-information voters who likely don't understand that, with the exception mentioned above, Congress has no constitutonal authority to address such issues.
Every person who applies for a job should claim to be gay. Then if they’re not hired they can file suit.
I agree with you completely.
I understand your fascination with him., well not really, but we are dealing with Obama now, not Romney. Remember, Obama won and he is doing his damnedest to make sure we never forget it.
I'm really not sure what your Post has to do with the discussion on this Thread, but whatever floats your Boat.
Just my opinion, carry on.
Republicans and ENDA, what is the connection, who is who in it, the republican presidential nominee of only months ago and Karl Rove, and George W. Bush from many years ago, all of them are too far back in history for mention? Is it using up too much of the precious bodily fluids of the limited internet space?
Is it OK to go back many, many years to mention Bush, or is it just Mitt Romney who needs to be left out of any negative connections, or ENDA history, or ENDA background, or context?
The Constitution doesn’t mean a fugging thing to this bunch.
They ignore it like it never existed and their pal John Roberts endorses them in it. May Piss be upon him.
They need to pass it like they passed Obama Care - like the stool sample it is - kinda looks like a Tootsie Roll so it might be good...
You’re conflating orientation with activity.
My point was simply this, Romney wasn’t and isn’t President so blaming him for anything is a waste of time.
Try going after Obama with the same venom. He is one ruining our lives. Romney is background noise, a distraction.
We all know the Republican Party sucks, so what else is new?
The election isn’t even a year past, Christie is being pushed for 2016, Palin and Cruz are under attack, things haven’t changed much over the months, and from that simple and short post, people here learned something more about GOPe support for ENDA, and just how long and deep that support runs.
Most people here are learning for the first time, that they voted for it in 2012.
Remember: Hire the mentally handicapped.
Sexual orientation determines what kind of activity a person is involved with.
Like I said, the Republican Party sucks.
The only alternative is to change the Party since a Third Party Vote only gets the Democrat Elected.
When they make Sarah Palin the head of the RNC, I’ll give them the time of day. Prebis had his chance and he blew it and surprisingly he is still in charge. He is the Kathleen Sebilious (sic) of the GOP.
All that being said, when it comes to the General Election I follow the Levin Rule. I was one of those who wasted my Vote on Perot in 1992 and I will never repeat that mistake.
The Primaries are where the rubber meets the road, but when it comes down to the RINO or the Communist, I go against the Commie every time.
Some here disagree, so be it.
If not for the Third Party spoiler in VA, we would have had another Governorship. Instead we got slime dripping Terry. If only...
