How is it that Pat Buchanan gets on television? Ever? He’s got to be one of America’s shittiest citizens. In a world of rough justice, the hate police would have gassed him.
Let’s hear it for prejudice
Pat Buchanan | WND | July 01, 2011
. . given that no nation in 20 centuries of Christendom legalized homosexual marriage and, in this century, majorities in all 31 states where it has been on the ballot have rejected it, [Richard] Cohen is pretty much saying that, since the time of Christ, Western history has been an endless Dark Age dominated by moral ignoramuses and bigots.
That’s certainly one interpretation. And a well-supported one. James Joyce: “History is a nightmare from which I am trying to awake.”
You don’t just have to be a nasty human being to be like Buchanan. You have to be stupid, too. What would he have said about Awesome Western Eden after the Emancipation Proclamation? “President Lincoln spits in the faces of slaves by insulting their native country.” Something like that. After the 19th Amendment? “No modern country has survived with women having the right to vote.” If everything won’t stay the same, Pat will organize an exodus. Progress is degrading.
What is the moral basis of the argument that homosexuality is normal, natural and healthy? In recent years, it has been associated with high levels of AIDS and enteric diseases, and from obits in gay newspapers, early death.
My Thor, I want to strangle this guy. What sorts of arguments are these? ‘Sure, people are born that way. But they’re vermin. Look at ’em dying all over the place, like cockroaches.’ And in Africa, it’s heterosexual activity that’s “been associated with high levels of AIDS.” So if missionary position Pat were an African, he’d be the antithesis of normal, natural and healthy. Hell, I imagine he’d tell you that himself. He probably reminds the boys down at the Elks Club the same thing every Monday night.
Still, Cohen is not without a point when he uses the term “prejudice.”
As Albert Einstein observed, “Common sense is the collection of prejudices acquired by age 18.” By 14, most boys have learned on the playground there is something disordered about boys sexually attracted to other boys.
Einstein’s ironic take on common sense to learn us about the intelligence of homophobia? I’m almost at a loss for words. ‘Moron’ doesn’t come close. And what the hell do 14 year-olds learn about the gay ‘disorder’ on the playground? Are gay kids having sex at recess? Or are they too lovestruck to throw a football?
I really wanted to tear to bits this codger-cunt’s screed insult by insult, but I just can’t. I’m too pissed. Too disgusted. I don’t need any more of this crap, I’m off to the bar.
