I have said many times, President Obama is good at what he does. And what does he do, you may ask? He divides our country, stirring up hate and strife wherever he goes. He uses the same tactics on every issue he addresses. It matters not if he is talking about income inequality or the rights of homosexuals, he always uses the same kind of inflammatory speech to stir up his captive crowds to action.
Remember how he sent his minions out to the personal residences of certain CEOs, right after he took office? He had them whipped up about the amount of money the CEOs were making, saying it wasn't fair. That was his first salvo against income inequality. He is doubling down on that issue since he was sworn in for his second term, hence his push to raise the minimum wage.
Homosexual rights is another issue on which he has stepped up his attacks. Remember now, his position on homosexual marriage has "evolved". He was against it during his first presidential campaign. He has since realized the error of his ways and is pushing as hard as he can for their right to be called normal. This push contains the same divisive speech patterns he always uses. Did you know Republicans are trying to segregate homosexuals? That's a new one on me, but that's what the man is saying. I found this on Weasel Zippers, who has a picture of Obama up, calling him the "Demonizer-in-Chief". A more apt description can not be found. I shamelessly borrowed that picture for this post.
Washington Examiner -President Obama in a speech on Friday hammered Republicans who oppose gay rights, saying that some of them wanted to legalize segregation based on sexual orientation.There you have it. Because some lawmakers would like to protect the religious freedom we all thought was guaranteed us by the Constitution, President Obama is declaring some Republicans want to segregate homosexuals. Never mind that the Arizona law said nothing about segregating anyone. No, facts do not matter to our President. All that matters is him getting his point across and if that requires dividing America, then so be it. The ends justifies the means.
In some states, they're so far in the past they're even pushing laws to legalize segregation based on sexual orientation, said Obama in an address to the Democratic National Convention winter meeting in Washington.
As Democrats, we've let the other side define the word 'freedom' for too long, he added.
Obama's comments were likely a reference to a recent Arizona bill that would have allowed businesses to refuse service to gay customers.
I am now going to do something I have not done before, in over five years of blogging. The rest of this post comes from a post I first published on December 1, 2008. It has been only slightly edited to correct the grammar to be relevant for today. I would not normally do this, but when I read what Obama had said, the first thing I thought about was this post. It is called "Is Gay The New Black?" and it begins below this paragraph. The original post can be found at the link.
Let me state, as clearly as I can, that I am against giving homosexual couples the right to marry. Marriage is a sacred union between one man and one woman and homosexual couples have no business encroaching upon that union. At the same time, what two consenting adults do between themselves is none of my business, unless their actions endanger someone else. They should receive the same legal rights as married couples via civil unions, but marriage should be off limits.
On December 16, 2008, The Advocate Magazine, the leading homosexual magazine in the country, had a cover story entitled "Gay Is The New Black". The subtitle is "The Last Great Civil Rights Struggle". In the article, the case was made that being a homosexual is akin to the struggles African-Americans have went through to gain their civil rights. A lot of the article deals with the let down the homosexual movement suffered on November 4, with the passage of Proposition 8 in California and it does its best to portray homosexuals as having suffered greatly from the lack of civil rights, just as African-Americans have suffered. From The Advocate:
History compounds the insult and suggests hypothetical scenarios rendering the mixed result of this election even more absurd. If the California supreme court and the U.S. Supreme Court decisions overturning anti miscegenation laws -- Perez v. Sharp and Loving v. Virginia -- had been blocked by popular vote, Barack Obama might never have been born. His parents would not have been able to marry in several states (although Hawaii, where they were married, had never enacted a law against interracial marriage).It's a stretch to equate interracial marriage with homosexual marriage. It is also a stretch to equate the homosexual struggle for the right to marry with the African-American struggle for civil rights.
African-Americans have certainly been treated badly in our country's history. The fact that our country ever allowed slavery is a disgrace; calling another human being property and buying and selling entire families is a travesty. African-Americans have been discriminated against throughout the history of America. Even after slavery was abolished, these people had to fight every step of the way, just to be recognized as normal people, just to be recognized as free. They were not served in a lot of restaurants, they even had separate bathrooms. If someone even thought a black man looked at a white woman, he was subject to beatings and/or sudden death. It didn't matter if he was guilty or not, there would be no trial. The homosexual marriage fight pales in comparison to what those who have suffered real discrimination have gone through.
In the south, the Ku Klux Klan (KKK), with their white robes and crosses, terrorized black people and white people, who were deemed to be sympathetic to the African-American cause. People were killed and their houses burned to the ground, all because they were either black or too friendly with a black person. I say again, the fight for homosexual marriage doesn't even come close to that kind of treatment.
Several years ago, a young homosexual man by the name of Matthew Shepard, was brutally attacked and killed near Laramie, Wyoming. There is no way he deserved what happened to him, no matter what his sexual preference was. It was never proven that the murder was a hate crime towards homosexuals, but some of the facts suggest it was. This kind of act would be equatable to some of the treatment African-Americans have received in our country. If ever a crime fits the description of "hate crime", the murder of Matthew Shepard does. Being denied access to eHarmony because Dr. Neil Clark Warren doesn't know enough about homosexual relationships to match two people up is neither discrimination, nor a hate crime.
The entire issue about homosexual marriage is not about discrimination or civil rights. The majority of Americans do not believe they or our government should interfere with the acts of two consenting adults, as long as no one is harmed in the process. Most of us do not agree with those acts, but in reality, it is their right to do as they please. However, the fight for homosexual marriage is not about that. Instead, it is a fight to prevent homosexuals from intruding upon what most Americans consider a sacred union between one man and one woman. Civil rights does not and should not even enter the discussion. To do so is a slap in the face of African-Americans and any other ethnic groups who have had to fight every step of the way, just to gain access to basic rights. In some cases, it has been a fight to just be considered a person and not property. That's real discrimination; the denial of homosexuals the right to marry is not.
Every day....fag, fag, fag....The guy is mental!!
How the pRes_ _ent must miss his daily forays in bath houses.
So does Obama intend to close all the gay bars?
I don’t want a minority of our population telling the Majority what to do. That is not segreation, that is keeping your perversion to yourselves, and not shoving it onto those of us who don’t believe in it or want it in our faces. There are to many ways around your issues both legal and financial or getting a cake or dress, go to the districts that cater to you stop picking on CHRISTIANS, you don’t take your crap to Muslims, they might just cut your head off, you just pick on devoute CHRISTIANS who don’t have the money to fight your orgs or bad press you cause.
Haha...Suggest???...what a stupid statement. I think the facts are that it wasn't.
Some of the trial testimony suggests it was a hate crime. We may never know the full truth. Sorry if you think that’s a stupid statement.
I cannot even comprehend this anymore.
There’s one homo I’d like to segregate-away from the White House and the executive branch of our government.
I thought dims and libs believed in democracy....you know majority rule.
so, if the majority of us are opposed to homosexuality why aren’t they in favor of siding with the majority??
Shepard would have been killed just as dead if he had been the ultra hetero Dos Equis guy.
He's not mental, he's either gay or bisexual...
No one who isn't would invest this much time, energy, resources and political capital...for such a small percent of the population...
I want to segregate ALL liberals. Put them in big city ghettos and string razor wire to keep them in.
“...of wanting to segregate homosexuals....”
Homosexuals do a pretty good job of doing that themselves.
(They may not like the company of breeders, you see.)
Its a lot bigger than Obama. The whole gay agenda is driven by global interests. After all, the world bank is threatening to withdraw loans from nations that oppose it.
I personally think the ultimate goal is population control.
Well, what is he supposed to do? Focus on that silly business in the Ukraine?
Either way, your interaction displays why we are losing the battle - you both give credence to the "Hate Crime" meme.
I cannot even THINK of one example where anyone has suggested “segregating”. The most we have asked for is “don’t ask, don’t tell” - i.e. peaceful coexistence.
