Well boys and girls, the preznit has called for a Constitutional Amendment banning same-sex marriage, just as everyone knew he would. And wouldn’t you just know it — The Creature From the Blog Lagoon has penned a response. (You were expecting a link? As if ! )
WAR IS DECLARED: The president launched a war today against the civil rights of gay citizens and their families. And just as importantly, he launched a war to defile the most sacred document in the land. Rather than allow the contentious and difficult issue of equal marriage rights to be fought over in the states, rather than let politics and the law take their course, rather than keep the Constitution out of the culture wars, this president wants to drag the very founding document into his re-election campaign. He is proposing to remove civil rights from one group of American citizens – and do so in the Constitution itself. The message could not be plainer: these citizens do not fully belong in America. Their relationships must be stigmatized in the very Constitution itself.
And this surprises you?
So much for “I’m a uniter” eh Sully?
The truth was apparent from Day One. You chose to ignore it. Why you chose to ignore it is a matter of considerable speculation among politicians, activists, everyday citizens and that most despised of professional minorities, psychotherapists. Indeed Gay Republicans could have the followers of Freud — and even Lacan — up on their feet and running again. Le petit object A has never looked bigger.
None, actually. But I’m sure you and your Log Cabinette pals are hard at work at devising some wiggle room for yourselves.
Well when didn’t we?
Let’s hear that again, shall we?
“I knew this was coming.”
You knew this was coming ?
And yet you insisted on supporting this man and his unelected cabal?
In other words WE MUST JOIN THE LEFT!!!!!
You’ve never attacked the Right before. You’ve only attacked the Left. Only the Left
The Left was the “real problem” for us all — isn’t that right Sully?
But for those of us on the Left, for those of us who started the Gay Liberation movement and continue to lead it inspite of you the struggle isn’t hard at all. It’s obvious. And the lines were drawn long before George W. Bush drew breath.
So whatcha gonna do, Sully?
Because your call to “war” has less resonance than anything Bugs ever said to Elmer. And in the immortal words of Daffy Duck, You’re despicable.
