So the headlines read “NFL 35 – Homophobia 0.” Greed and big business wins over bigoted extremist Christian right bullsh*it. This is two extremist factions fighting to get out of each other’s pants,’
We’re of course talking about Arizona’s out of control REPUBLICAN racist legislative majority going down to defeat by a veto by its own out of control Governor the wicked witch of the South West Gov. Jan Brewer.
When she came up against the NFL, John McCain, The Chamber of Commerce and Meygn Kelly it was time to bail on her own bigots,…After all she thought “gays and no Mexicans.”
There are similar disgusting homophobic legislations pending in many other States.
WHAT DOES THIS SAY ABOUT THE STATE OF THE UNION?
This is indeed a divided nation. Obama’s election and reelection is “the good”…The jealousy and the obstructionism, by the GOP minority is “the bad”..and the fact that Obama is black and commandeer in chief has brought out the open racism that was always broiling under the surface of this country …is “the ugly”.
Should we be amazed? No way…
I’m about as amazed as when I found out about Dick Cheney’s choice of Halliburton to supply the food for the US troops in Iraq..
I’m about amazed as when I realized that New Jersey’s governor was a bully and a crook. I ‘m about amazed as when Anderson Cooper told us he was gay.
We are living in two different countries and probably have been for a long time. We come together to celebrate the Olympics and the World Cup but apart from that there is such a wide gap between the so-called Christian white America and the rest of us its incredible…and now we can see it on the map very clearly.
America is fighting three wars at the same time internally right now .
#1 The old values of the North vs the South. This is being sustained by corporate America which would love to go back to the days of slave labor under a different banner…no regulations and no unions, A 1% aristocracy running the whole thing with no opposition.
#2 The Right Wing Christian doctrine of “exceptionalism” through a one dimension wrong-headed biblical philosophy that demands adherence to completely out of date laws written by angry old Jews who could not get laid and didn’t have air conditioning or bagels.
#3 The war against minorities by the ignorant racist whites.
The good guys will eventually win all these wars as the babies being born are turning a lighter shade of brown.
We are however in for a bumpy ride folks as the insanity of Christianity ‘s lunatic fringe fights its way to its own demise and big business spends billions attempting to impose its will on free people and the way they want to live there lives.
