Headline Of The Day: “What’s Wrong With Discrimination?”

Jesse Lee Ferguson, writing for World Net Daily, says discrimination is a God-given right.

Here’s just an excerpt:

“America was much better off when its businesses routinely posted signs that read, ‘We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone,’ and meant it. After all, they ‘built it,’ and freedom – like the freedom of association – was universally understood to be a natural, God-given right.

“But now, in our more ‘enlightened’ age, freedom has been squashed in favor of special rights for protected groups, and ‘hell to pay’ for unprotected groups.

“LGBT groups have been effective in linking their immoral cause to the noble civil rights movement. In reality, gays never wanted equality. They wanted society to accept their sinful lifestyle, or else. LGBT groups – to be blunt – act like fascists.

“What’s so bad about discrimination anyway? Discrimination has always been a hallmark of freedom. The ability to discriminate is given to us by God so that we can make right choices.”

Colorado Bakery Cleared Of Any Wrong Doing In Refusing To Make “Hate Cake”

The Azucar Bakery in Colorado has been cleared of any wrongdoing by the Colorado Civil Rights Division for refusing to bake a cake with a hateful message.

LGBTQ Nation reports:

The state ruled that the cake shop had every right not to make the cakes on the grounds that the message on the cakes would be “derogatory.”

The complaint against Marjorie Silva, owner of Azucar Bakery, was filed by Castle Rock, Colo., resident Bill Jack, who claimed Silva discriminated against his religious beliefs when she refused to decorate a cake showing two groomsmen with a red “x” over them and messages about homosexuality being a sin.

Silva said she would make the cake, but declined to write his suggested messages on the cake, telling him she would give him icing and a pastry bag so he could write the words himself. Silva said the customer didn’t want that.

In its ruling, the state determined that because Silva would have responded to any other customer the same way, the bakery didn’t refuse service because of the customer’s religion.

Just another asshole trying to make a flawed point over the anti-gay bakers who refused to make a cake for a gay wedding celebration in a state where public accommodation laws include sexual orientation in their civil rights acts.

Sean Hannity At CPAC: “If I Was Stupid Like A Liberal…”

Sean Hannity took some of his free time at CPAC today to throw red meat to the crowd in the form of insults about liberal Americans:

“Let’s say I had a bees nest at my house. If I was stupid, like a liberal, and I took a baseball bat and I knocked down the wasp nest and the bees sting me, it wouldn’t be my fault, it wouldn’t be the wasp’s fault.”

But this guy would tell you he’s ‘fair and balanced.’

He then followed up with a strange joke – “I have x-ray Fox vision and I can see some young women — you don’t even know it yet but you’re pregnant. But it’s not your fault!”

The insults start around the 7:15 mark.

Scott Lively is super-mad that HBO’s “Last Week Tonight” told the truth about him

Crimes against humanity defendant and current (don’t laugh) Massachusetts gubernatorial candidate Scott Lively is waaay upset that John Oliver quoted Mr. Lively (with video, no less) on HBO’s “Last Week Tonight” this past Sunday.

As many folks know, Mr. Lively has spent considerable time and energy traveling the world spreading anti-gay propaganda and supporting laws like the recently passed “Kill The Gays” law in Uganda.  He, of course, denies that he’s anything but loving and compassionate.

You know, Scotty, the problem with technology is what you say is now with us forever. All your anti-gay propaganda captured in “lively” color.

But Mr. Lively has now taken to his personal hate site to rail against Oliver’s extensive truth-telling.

“Friends, On Sunday night I was attacked on HBO’s ‘Last Week Tonight’ a supposed comedy/news show in the mold of The Daily Show.

The host is a Brit named John Oliver.

I find it funny that lefties like John Oliver who pose as humanitarians are the masters at dehumanizing other people through ridicule and never give the subjects of their smears a fair chance to respond.

I’m calling out John Oliver as a liar and a fraud who couldn’t go ten minutes with me in an unscripted, unedited debate. Without his teleprompter and his cheap-shot, out-of-context video clips he would be exposed as just another left-wing loony.

Oliver is lying through selective editing re Rwanda and several other points. His show was one continuous stream of malicious LGBT propaganda in the guise of comedy.

Yes, it will likely negatively affect the voters, as it was intended to do. It’s one more example of the ‘politics of personal destruction’ that Saul Alinsky taught the ‘progressives,’ including journalists, to practice.”

You can check out the clip that has Scott Lively’s panties in a bunch below:

Tea Party blogger arrested for sneaking into opponent’s wife’s hospital room

Clayton Thomas Kelly

Tea party blogger Clayton Thomas Kelly has been arrested for sneaking into an adult care facility and taking a photo of US Sen. Thad Cochran’s (R-MS) wife, who is being treated for Alzheimer’s:

Clayton Thomas Kelly runs a political blog called Constitutional Clayton, where he posted a story April 26 attacking Cochran and supporting state Sen. Chris McDaniel, who’s challenging Cochran in the state’s GOP Senate primary this year.

The piece included a picture taken bedside in Rose Cochran’s room at the nursing home, where she has lived since 2000.

In a press release, the Madison Police Department said that Kelly “had illegally and improperly obtained an image of a vulnerable adult resident without their consent for his own benefit.” He was charged with exploitation of a vulnerable adult, and his bond was set at $100,000.

In a statement, the Cochrans’ attorney, Donald Clark, said his clients’ “privacy and dignity have been violated,” according to the Clarion-Ledger.

McDaniel has denounced the shenanigans, but Cochran’s campaign isn’t completely convinced McDaniel’s camp is completely in the clear. Apparently, McDaniel’s campaign manager knew about the arrest before news reports.

Ah, the Tea Party – the gift that keeps giving…

Rep. Steve King: We shouldn’t have legal protections for ‘self-professed’ behaviors

I love that Rep. Steve King isn’t even sure what groups are covered in the “Civil Rights section of the code.”

“Special rights for SELF-PROFESSED BEHAVIOR?” King means the gays here, I assume.

And then there’s the moment at 1:36 when King says “How do you know who to discriminate against?”

Umm, the answer would be “No one.”

Finally, isn’t religion “self-professed behavior?” You aren’t born to a specific faith – Christian, Jewish, Muslim…

And people change faith all the time.

Things that make you go “hmm…”

DC lobbyist proposes a law banning gay players from the NFL

Via the Huffington Post, you can file this under “Never Gonna Happen.”

Republican lobbyist Jack Burkman wants to see Congress pass his “American Decency Act of 2014,” which would make it illegal for “self-declared homosexual football players” to join an NFL team unless it “provides facilities for homosexual players which are entirely separate and distinct from the facilities used by heterosexual players.”

Burkman proposes a fine starting at $3 million for any violations of the proposed “law.”

“I felt that if the NFL doesn’t have any morals, and people like [Commissioner] Roger Goodell, who are just go-along-get-along guys, just want to appease advertisers, appease corporate America and all that stuff,” Burkman said earlier this week, “I figured, well, it is time for conservatives in Congress to step in and define morality for them.”

Earlier this week,  Burkman predicted that dozens of members of Congress would rally behind his proposal.  I’m highly doubting that will happen.

Of course, this is never going to happen. So you have to wonder what kind of publicity Burkman is looking for here since it only serves to portray him as a jackass.

By the way, Burkman has an openly gay brother. Weigh that one out in your heads.
