"Enlarge the Gap"

Sadly, the main way you can tell this is satire is that it sounds a lot more toned-down and reasonable than the actual spew coming from the likes of Luddite, Limblargh, Gangrene, Torquemada, and the rest of the Living Dead. Just this modest proposal:

We must fight. Today, a white male child will be born into an oppressive society where the color of his skin will only be a great advantage, not an incomprehensibly powerful advantage. That child will see that there is now extra competition out there between himself and his dreams. That child will be born into a society that - while understanding his cultural values and belief systems - will no longer automatically fearfully submit to them. That child will be destined for a life of dreams and promises that will only very likely be fulfilled. The guarantee is now gone, and we must get it back.

My white male friends, we shall overcome. We are a theoretically oppressed majority, but our voices can be heard. White men, spit the imperceptibly less silver spoon from your mouths and yell to the skies “The White Man will rise again! Power to the white male.”

Thank you, and I have retained counsel, several bodyguards, a maid, hairstylist and personal valet on this matter.”

Re. the Liddy article: I have no words. (I picked the "Contemplating Suicide, but only because of the speedo pic" in their online poll, I notice it was the second runner.)

Thank you for the torquemada link, it explained this insanity.
Insofar as you can use the word "explain" for this stuff.

yeah, "explain" really...doesn't, does it.

"It's all falling into place. Unfortunately that place is nowhere near this place."

CrackerLilo said... brilliant. You have no idea how many times I've wanted to ask these assclowns, "So if we're not supposed to be looking at race and gender and stuff, you got no problem with the Supreme Court being made up mostly of black lesbian atheists just so long as they're fair-minded, right? Right?"

Maybe someone will make a video of that. ;-)

I don't think any conservative will mind a black lesbian atheist, as long as she rules against equal rights for women, blacks, GLBT people, and atheists. The right is perfectly satisfied with Thomas.

belledame222 said...

That, and "fair minded" means "does everything I want them to do." Which -most- black lesbian atheists kind of won't, by definition. So.

apparently some religious rights folks are faintly hopeful or at least holding their fire on Sotomayor because they think she might uphold the family values stuff, based on Catholic background and previous rulings, or more accurately general lack of them. I think they'll be disappointed; mostly what she seems to be is a stickler for the legal fine print (generally a good quality in someone who's, y'know, gonna be on SCOTUS; but kind of the opposite of "judicial activism"), but hey, I won't try to dissuade them. And I suppose we could be unpleasantly surprised, but I think as long as it's a good case there's nothing to worry about.
