Love it or leave it

Senator Jim DeMint clearly hates America for its freedoms. As a local paper reports:

DeMint said if someone is openly homosexual, they shouldn’t be teaching in the classroom and he holds the same position on an unmarried woman who’s sleeping with her boyfriend — she shouldn’t be in the classroom.

“(When I said those things,) no one came to my defense,” he said. “But everyone would come to me and whisper that I shouldn’t back down. They don’t want government purging their rights and their freedom to religion.”

Perhaps no one came to his defense because he’s dead wrong.

    It’s hard to say which is worse.

    “Hopefully in 2012, we’ll make headway to repeal some of the things we’ve done, because politics only works when we’re realigned with our Savior.”

    I guess their rights and freedom of religion depend on everyone being aligned with their Savior.

    What does he have against unmarried women who sleep with their boyfriends? I mean, it happens. Maybe they were out hiking all day and were just very, very tired.

    Add to that an evening of some great sex, and I’d be surprised if the couple could stay awake all night. Does DeMint just want them to keep at it like animals all night long without a nap at all? OK, maybe the 18 year olds, but once they get a little older they will need some sleep in there sometime.

    DeMint does not hate America for its freedoms. He hates the rampant satanic immorality that the far left freakshow hippy commies have brought upon our land like a plague. He, like millions of other normal people in America, wants his country back. he wants to ditch these satanic liberal fascists and get America back to where it should be. DeMint does not hate America. He loves it and wants it to be normal again.

    Cap’n Patriot: America is NOT yours, nor does it belong to any individual. You cannot have back what was never your to begin with. It is everyone’s…. it is OURS. Just because it is not being run the exact way you seem to want right now is a poor excuse to slander everyone who does not agree with you.
    The far left is is not more satanically immoral than any other chunk of society you care to mention… at least they admit what they do openly.
    Last time I checked, the sun still rose in the east and set in the west, as it will continue to do long after we are all long gone.

    Just remember: this is the party of small government: small enough to fit in your bedroom. Or womb.

    National leaders like DeMint have far more influence over the public than any teacher. Why isn’t DeMint calling for moral purity among his own colleagues?

    A lot of this comes down to public/private and rich man’s/poor man’s morality. The rich and powerful have always had freedom to whore around at will. If they wanted an abortion they shipped their daughter/wife off to Mexico or Europe.

    The rich and powerful have long had the ability to get away with this sort of thing. Look into the private lives of our ancestors. The Sally Hemings relationship to Jefferson:

    Of course it has always been this way. What is different is that starting in the early-60s and on the poor and middle class started to increasingly emulate the behavior and attitudes of the rich. Instead of just an elite 2% doing it, behind closed doors with their reputations protected by a lapdog press and assertions that the rich were special, it was an option for everyone.

    And then, only then, did it become a subject for pearl-clutching scolds, finger waggers, and preachers.

    The same is true for the housing bubble. The rich had long been able to operate on extreme margins, with no-document loans, with a knowledge that the elite club would make sure they could not fail. Ws business experience was a series of sweetheart deals, incompetence and loss, followed by forgiveness and another sweetheart deal being offered. Wash, rinse, repeat. That is how it is done in high society.

    It only becomes a national issue when the unwashed masses make the mistake thinking that they have the same rights and privileges as their betters. Or that like their betters society will tolerate, cover up, and quietly forgive their indiscretions.

    Senator Jim DeMint wants to go back to the day when special rules for special people rigid but unspoken norm, and the unwashed masses knew their place. When the working man viscerally understood that ‘There is a club, and you’re not in it’.

    But everyone would come to me and whisper that I shouldn’t back down.

    Even if he wanted to he simply doesn’t have that kind of time.
