Hump Day Lunch Break Rant starts now! Brought you this week by the letter H and the number 8. (Hint: put the two together. Yeah. Hate.)
I am starting off with a pre-emptive mea maxima culpa this week, to ward off the replies I’m sure to get: Vile hater-y bigot-head homophobe? Yep, you nailed me. And I hate women, hobos, trees, clean air and water, orphans, and puppies. I may even put the latter on top of my car. Don’t eat ’em, though.
Fair enough? You knee-jerkers satisfied? Cool. Now, let me converse with the rational folks for a bit. Here comes the title for this rant:
“Felching Intolerance From The Rectum of Democracy”
Last night, my neighbors to the South (North Carolina) overwhelmingly voted for Amendment 1. Said Constitutional Amendment defines marriage as between one man and one woman. The Twitterz subsequently caught fire. Positively flaming, they were.
Several of us who happen to not be knee-jerk reactionaries thought it might be a good idea to capture the most bigoted tweets via Retweets. So many of these anti-NC tweets were, well, fabulous.
“Burn the whole fucking inbred state to the ground” was the main (ahem) thrust.
Of those I Retweeted, a pattern emerged (besides the bigotry of calling those you disagree with “inbred” and “bigots”, with no apparent sense of irony). Fully 90% of these uber-tolerant, diversity-loving folks reside in another of the 31 states (so far) with similar laws.
Apart from that unbridled ignorance of their home turf, most had tweets indicating support of the Occupy (pardon the pun) “movement.”
I found it funny (as in, “queer,” not “haha”) that Occupy folks love to chant, “THIS is what democracy looks like”, and the #NoH8 NC-haters seem to agree, but only in theory. Not practice.
Selective moral outrage, emotional knee-jerk, and now selective love of majority rule? Does the hypocrisy know no bounds?
Guess not. It’s what the professionally-offended Left (and the victimhood Right) do best: push the boundaries of cognitive dissonance.
For those of you upset at NC, with your anal beads in a bunch or your lubed-up “Coexist” fists – google Baker v. Nelson. And know this: personally, twinks, I don’t care if you shake your moneymaker at (or IN) another consenting male’s sphincter-snack. And ladies, go elbow deep in any willing frumious bandersnatch you can find. But NC voted. Deal. Or move to a state that has yet to pass such an amendment, and vote your beliefs (and bigotry) in YOUR backyard.
