‘New Motherf–king Tone’ Update, and Also: New Commie Wonkette Editor

Gay-rights activists are among the most hateful people in the world. Remember the Prop 8 reaction in 2008?

Taking to the streets in furious indignation, activists created an “enemies list” of those who had contributed to support the measure, targeting them for boycotts and protests.
The elderly co-owner of a Mexican restaurant, who had given $100 to support the referendum, was driven to tears as she confronted “60 members of Los Angeles’ LGBT community” who demanded an apology and an equal contribution to a proposed effort to repeal the referendum. . . .
One activist who helped compile the enemies list told Time magazine: “My goal was to make it socially unacceptable to give huge amounts of money to take away the rights of one particular group, a minority group.” Of course, the restaurant owner’s $100 contribution to the “Yes on 8” cause was not “huge,” but the principle is the same.
As the California activists spewed their fury — allegedly vandalizing Mormon temples, making terroristic threats toward Catholics, and hurling racial epithets at African-Americans (who voted 3-to-1 in favor of Prop 8, according to exit polls) — their vitriolic rage highlighted how the progressive rhetoric of “rights” undermines and destabilizes political consensus.

Homosexuality has gone from being “the love that dare not speak its name” to being “the political agenda that won’t shut up,” and its enthusiasts — 3.4 percent of the U.S. population, according to a Gallup poll last year — seem determined to make up in angry outrage what they lack in numbers. Tim Graham calls attention to one Daily Kos diarist’s self-righteous rant:

Do you not remember who you motherf–kers are? . . .
You no good low-rent gaggle of hateful self-serving bigot-for-hire whiny a– titty babies.
Entire election cycles were gleefully covered in slick wall-to-wall homophobia and hatred.
Remember that sh-t? Good. Now go f–k yourselves. Here. Here’s a ratty leather glove covered in rusty spikes. No. No. Here’s two. You can all go bend over and collectively fist each other in a frenzy until all the pain equals all the hate and the stupid you have given us for ages in spades. You all made your bones stoking and exploitating hate. . . .
Eat all your sh–t and feel some real f–-king shame.
Calling you ‘Bigots’ to your collective faces is just a really, really good f–king start.

Isn’t it time for Mary Katharine Ham to do a sequel to this video?

Some of you young people might not believe it, but there was a time when being gay was mostly about sex. Also, disco.

Then, during Ronald Reagan’s presidency, being gay became mostly about blaming Republicans for AIDS. Nowadays, being gay seems to be mostly about wishing violent death on Republicans.

How homosexuality changed from being a personal preference to being a political identity is deserving of an essay or even an entire book, but nobody’s offering to pay me to write either. Still I can’t help but wonder: Is hating Republicans really that much more fun than sex and disco?

Speaking of fun and hate, M. Joseph Sheppard is a blogger I’ve sometimes linked and vice-versa, and he cited me as an authority on the “Red Diaper” milieu that produced Obama’s top political advisor David Axelrod. There is a backstory: It seems that Wonkette got a new editor, Rebecca Schoenkopf, a self-declared “Commie,” and Sheppard was having some kind of tiff with the aforesaid Commie who — in “punching down” at her stubborn nemesis — threw in the accusation that Sheppard is “constantly citing white supremacist Robert Stacy McCain as some kind of moral authority.”

Sheppard brought this to my attention on Twitter, and when I checked over at Wonkette, I noticed they had moved on from punching down at Sheppard (and his “white supremacist” friend) to calling Michelle Malkin an “anchor baby.”

Because they’re all about racial equality, you see.

And then I immediately hit Joe Sheppard’s tip-jar for $20, and now recommend that everybody else do the same.

Anybody who pisses off a Commie that much deserves it.

    Yep; One political forum I was on had a Dr. From TX who was gay. He said in all seriousness that he would run over Christians who thought marriage should be between a man and a woman, but that he didn’t want to go to jail. Another one said “Christians should be locked up in concentration camps” so as not to “infect” the rest of society. If the folks who think this way ever gain more power that’s exactly where we shall be and these nutcases will be gald to see us in ovens.

    To be fair, if you spent your life identifying the whole of your existence in terms of being a homosexual, doesn’t it make sense that you’d always act like you had a dick up your ass?

    Given that the gay community is doing everything it can to suppress public knowledge of the continuing spread of AIDS in its ranks, I’d say hating Republicans is at least safer for gays than sex, which may be why they’re so cranky….

    Disco? Definitely. “Sex” defined as “shoving things up yer behind”? Definitely.

    I’ve thought a lot about what it was that started me on the path away from being what Andrew called a being “default cultural liberal”. He told the story about how he went to Tulane and realized that fly-over country people weren’t actually a bunch of redneck hicks who had sex with their sisters, and how he listened to Rush as he delivered scripts in Hollywood, to meeting Drudge, and how it was the Clarence Thomas hearings that was the last straw.
    For me, it started with the gay rights movement circa 1990. It’s such a dishonest agrument. And they are so nasty. Really horrible bullies. They can dish it out but can’t take it. Then I started reading Ann Coulter during the Lewinsky mess. I loved her. Her columns would make me laugh out loud. The Bush derangement. My last straw was Belsan. I had tried for the years since 9/11 to argue with the “root cause” crowd but it wasn’t until the day the siege at Beslan ended that I realized it was pointless to try to reason with people who weren’t capable of reason. That was it for me.
    These people must be defeated. You cannot reason with them, you cannot compromise with them because enough is never enough. Fight back. And if you don’t have it in you to fight back then stop attacking and silencing those of us who will.

    Like I wrote before, this is just the fear reaction they have because they all know, deep down in the heart of their bottom, that the gravy train will be stopping soon.

    Just go peruse Doug Ross’ (The Economy Charts Boss) site and look at his charts and blogging on the run on the banks beginning in Europe.

    Yeah, it’ll be here soon enough, and then these pathetic, screaming mice will be running for cover behind Conservatives with guns.
