Hate the Hater Haters.

I moved from Southern California to Louisville, KY about a year ago. I really miss California even with all of its peccadilloes that just simply piss me off. It is the state of anti-freedom liberties. I am sure that in the future, I will comment on them, but this issue is in the news, so I will comment.

Opponents of Proposition 8 lost 48% to 52%. People showed up and performed their civic duty. They made their choice. The losers are sore. I can relate to that in that goodness in our nation was also defeated by a similar margin in the Presidential election and an even greater margin in the legislative bodies of this once and future great nation. I would like to storm welfare offices and university faculty offices across the nation to protest the lies and hate that have given us the government that we deserve (same link as previous).

On to the point. From what I have read, it is mainly the LGBT community who has singled out the LDS as the primary benefactor and catalyst for the pro-prop-8 victory. That is, 10% blames 1.9% for 52%. Certain deviant behavior rights activists have called for a boycott of anything LDS, including the Sundance Film Festival simply because it is near Salt Lake City.

As I recall, back in the 1930's, a political group was having problems and decided to focus the blame on a specific group to shift blame from the real issues. By blaming a small but visible group for all of the ills of society the rest of us can unite as one people and overcome the hatred of the few. We cure hatred by focusing our hatred on the haters.

I am comparing the deviant left with the Nazis. Should I write a book called Liberal National Socialists? The People spoke in California. I am truly surprised that Prop-8 passed, but it did, and I am pleased. Now it is up to the state supreme court to decide that the will of the people is unconstitutional and overturn the verified and uncontested popular election results.

I definitely think the LDS have some major theological issues. They are a little nuts from what I have learned on South Park. HOWEVER, they are an important ally in the fight for conservative values. They are an opponent of my enemy and are thus my friend. Therefore, a boycott of them is an offense to me.

I don't know what the gays are so upset about. They are on the road to victory. Just a few years ago, a similar proposition won by a much bigger margin. It's only a matter of time before the gays win for good. I guess they're just embarrassed that they lost in their own back yard, so to speak.

So would you have voted for Mitt Romney had he been the GOP candidate? I only bring that up to stoke some fires. I, too, have gained a slightly friendlier view of the Mormons in the wake of the gay riots. And my opinions of them, and Mitt, are well known around here.

A time zone... OF THE FUTURE!

Well, everybody better look BELOW this post for new content between now and Dec. 12, then... including the post I just wrote...

Got it. I was wondering how that got there. I guess Mongolia has its own, quite subtle, form of global terrorism...

I started writing this one yesterday, so when I first published it, it was below the wine one. I tried to change it to the 2nd, but I guess it went to the 12th. Just wait until I start talking about the 2012 event ahead of time.

Marty,

Ha ha ha, I get the "they lost in their own back yard" comment. I think the issue is that they desire to 'gain' in their 'back yard' that makes the practice so disgusting among other things.

Yeah, I tried to make it a double entendre. But it is their back yard. Who'da thought, though, that with SF being pretty much one of the throbbing hubs of the gay movement, and with West LA being its southern appendage, that the gays could ever lose in Lotus Land?

Alright. Enough of the disturbing imagery.

Every Mormon I've met has been a "nice person". They certainly share some of the same social beliefs with evangelical Christians. Their religion is just a little weird. But politics is secular, and they're an ally.

It's interesting that a group that was once noted for its deviancy (polygamy) is being vilified by another in the same boat. The Mormons are being singled out in CA because of the amount of money they contributed, not the 1.9% of votes.

I actually beg to differ, Chris: the mormons are being singled out because they are The Other, and largely defenseless. Can't go after those horrible Christians because they're too big and well organized. But the Mormons make a good target because of their weirdness and vulnerability. In other words, they're the new Jews to the PC fascist state.

Ben, that is the metaphor I was going for. Thank you.
