I’ve never fallen for the claptrap that we should all be “tolerant.” I’m a live-and-let-live kind of guy and I treasure free speech, but let’s face it, outside of Nat Hentoff, Alexander Cockburn, and the late Christopher Hitchens, few on the Left really do. I learned this lesson the hard way when I went to college in the late 70s. Grades, grad school, and girls were all-too-often contingent on not saying the wrong things.
So where was I? Oh yes. Now that homosexuals have been granted a sanctity that black people could have only dreamed about when Theophilus “Bull” Connor was turning water hoses on them, I get especially tickled when the Brownshirts show their true colors.
The idiot mayors of Boston and Chicago decided to take on Chick-Fil-A because *GASP* the CEO of that fast-food franchise believes what President Obama said he believed about marriage just a few short months before his views “evolved.”
These bozos (Mendino and Emmanuel) should be welcoming any company which is willing to set up shop in their economically depressed cities. In a saner world, they’d be booted out of office or subject to immediate recall. Of course that’s not what’s going to happen because many of bigger cities in Blue-State America are giant rotten boroughs, with indigent populations who live off the largesse of government. As long as the Liberals keep shovelling out other peoples’ money to them, then they’ll keep relatively quiet.
Ironies abound: Rahm Emmanuel knows that Chicago is more dangerous than Baghdad. So what’s his bright idea to keep the peace? In our political theater of the absurd, he suggested that the Black Muslims (who hate Jews, whites, and gays in equal measure) should police the streets of Chicago. Boston’s Tom Menino helped open a new mosque in Boston the other day. I wonder if anybody told them what the Koranic penalty for sodomy is?
Nah. Muslims can stone homosexuals to death but that’s OK because they’re part of the Oppressed People EverywhereTM, Christians though aren’t allowed to look the other way when it comes to sodomy.
Anyway, you wouldn’t know it from the Lamestream Media but Chick-Fil-A had their best month ever. And all those “gay kiss-ins” at the various outlets failed spectacularly. That’s one reason I don’t despair about the secularist insanity that has gripped our world. Whenever Lenin was dealt a military set-back, he asked if the Reds still controlled the telegraph office. As long as they did, they could spin a defeat into a victory and hopefully demoralize the Whites. Those days are gone. That’s why the Homintern continues to fail; despite all the “popularity” of gay “marriage,” it never ceases to fail at the ballot-box, even in ultra-liberal states.
