LOS ANGELES, April 6, 2015 — While conservatives obsess over Iran plotting to blow up the world, liberals obsess over whether some people in Indiana had their feelings hurt. Whenever Democrats lose political momentum, they smash the “In case of emergency, break glass” window and reach for social issues. This week’s cause du jour came from a gay rights community unaware that it has already won. For many liberal activists, picking fights is necessary to distract from political failures that cannot be fixed and political successes that no longer require militancy.
For those who have a desire to be bored with the least important controversy not involving a Kardashian, welcome to Indiana. Governor Mike Pence signed a religious freedom law. Religious evangelical conservatives supported it. Leftist gays opposed it. The liberal media descended on Indiana businesses on a Duck Dynasty mission, determined to find ordinary business owners they could demonize. This would allow the continuation of the narrative that Middle America are a bunch of hillbilly bigots. One pizza owner offered an opinion only after it was solicited.
Crystal O’Connor said that the family business would not cater a gay wedding because it goes against their Christian values. The O’Connors have no legislative, executive, judiciary or administrative agency powers. They sell pizza. They have political opinions that they kept to themselves until they were asked to offer thoughts about a law they had nothing to do with passing.
In the name of tolerance, liberals subjected the O’Connors to death threats and warnings that Memories Pizza would be burnt to the ground. Leftists from Occupy Wall Street to Wisconsin union activists have a history of resorting to violence when conservatives dare to disagree with them.
This leads to the issue that is at the heart of the liberal hypocrisy movement.
What if the O’Connors were not white evangelical Christian conservatives? What if Memories Pizza were owned by blacks? What if it were owned by Muslims? What if it were owned by Arabs?
Based on past actions and inactions, liberal activists would keep their mouths shut and run away with their tails tucked between their legs.
Harken back to when California voters passed Proposition 8, which banned gay marriage. It passed with 53% of the overall vote, yet the losing side was not in the mood to chant, “This is what democracy looks like.” Evangelical churches supporting Proposition 8 were harassed. The CEO of Mozilla was ousted merely for quietly donating to the pro-Proposition 8 campaign. White conservatives were labeled bigots.
66% of hispanics voted and 70% of blacks voted for the law. Not one word of criticism was aimed at them. Blacks and hispanics are vital to the liberal identity politics coalition, so anti-gay leanings are the price to pay.
As for Islamistc terrorists, they just murder gays, women, and anybody else that does not submit to their warped concept of Allah’s will.
A movement that truly cared about gay rights, women’s rights and other supposedly marginalized communities would not engage in selective outrage. Well actually, yes, it absolutely would.
Christian conservatives are attacked as intolerant, but it is their very tolerance that causes them to be abused, harassed and bullied by leftist cowards. Liberals feel safe attacking Christians because they know that Christians will not behead them. It is easier to lash out at a Christian pizza owner who just wants to quietly live his life than dare criticize an Islamist who may skip dialogue and go straight to the munitions stage of discussion.
For those requiring further evidence, zero Christians and Jews spent Easter and Passover murdering innocent children and women, gay or straight. The people who murdered 150 people in Kenya were not Republicans in red and blue diagonal neckties upset about taxes. Tea Party attendees do not set gays on fire. Islamists count such activities as part of their weekly hobbies. Islamists enjoy their machetes as much as elderly ladies cherish their macrame.
This is why so many Americans contributed over $800,000 to Memories Pizza. They are not bigots. They are just sick and tired of liberal hypocrites leading fake political movements based on fictional controversies. Conservative Christians just want to be left alone to lead their lives and escape the clutches of morally bankrupt liberal activists and their pre-planned protests.
Liberals need to know the race, gender and ideology of their potential harassment targets before deciding whether to speak out. This only proves that when it comes to talking about equality and rights, liberals have nothing of value to say.
