article imageElizabeth Edwards: Some Just Aren't Fooled Anymore

By GayConservative     Jul 27, 2007 in Politics
After three short years since her husband's famous Vice-Presidential run with John Kerry; who vocally opposed gay-marriage, Elizabeth Edwards attempts to convince us that she cares about gay rights.
And so the games of liberal-trickery begin....
Since the late 90’s when so-called minorities started to “come out of the closet” as conservatives, liberals have always had a fascinating way of dealing with them. Call me crazy, but I’m pretty sure it had something to do with the Clinton administration’s “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” policy along with the fact that unlike either Bushes, Bill Clinton failed to appoint an African-American to a real position of high power.
As has been well documented, the closest African-American to President Clinton was his personal secretary — Betty Curry. Remember the praise Clinton received for appointing the first female Secretary of State?
How about the praise Johnson got for appointing Justice Thurgood Marshall to the Supreme Court fresh out of the Civil Rights movement? Back when white-Democrats didn’t mind litmus tests for justices, Johnson was sure to be the first politically correct Democrat by making sure a judge would sit on the Supreme Court that did his best to defend hardened criminals, work feverishly with William Brennan to wholeheartedly support abortion rights and oppose the death penalty which led to dire consequences for America (oh yeah, he was black, too). Convicted felons were leashed onto America by the thousands because of previously issued opinions of the Warren Court, where just one year before Marshall came on, Miranda v. Arizona (1966) basically stripped the police of the ability to gain confessions. At this point, the litmus test for judicial insanity was running strong among the most liberal court in the history of this country — thus, Thurgood Marshall was appointed because he passed the “insanity test” even though the majority of the country (aside from the Lennon-lovers and Vietnam draft-dodgers) lived in fear of the kinds of opinions he was issuing.
Johnson boasted of his “historic” decision to appoint an African-American by proclaiming that the majority of black-baby-boys would be named “Thurgood” in honor of his choice. Historian, Doris Kearns-Goodwin researched medical records in New York and Boston shortly thereafter and sadly, Johnson’s prediction utterly flopped — even the blacks that were just granted Civil Rights a few years earlier didn’t like this new justice!
Nonetheless, this was celebrated and like the case of Bill Clinton with Madeline Albright, Johnson was slurped up one side and down the next by white-liberals who support crime and the baby-killing procedure known as abortion.
Upon announcement of Thurgood Marshall’s retirement, you would have thought that President George H.W. Bush would have received rave reviews for replacing him with another African-American — a true Justice — Clarence Thomas. But unfortunately it took white-liberals all over the country all of five minutes to begin labeling Thomas as “Uncle Tom” or “Uncle Clarence.” Somehow the love of promoting African-Americans to positions of higher power had managed to fizzle amongst the “Ebony and Ivory” crowd.
Since Clinton was elected in 1992, I have no choice but to flash forward eight entire years to highlight the next set of African-American Promotees.
Under President George W. Bush, we had the first black-Secretary of State, Colin Powell. By the time this announcement was made, liberals had already decided that Bush was a war-mongering hater of anyone that was not white, straight, or rich. Unfortunately, pausing for a moment to document this massive history-making promotion would have directly contradicted their position. After all, coming up with a new lie would have required energy.
Soon thereafter, Bush also appointed women to the Federal Appeals Court. One in particular was African-American, the brilliant Janice Rogers-Brown. This black woman was loved so much by white liberals in Congress that they filibustered her nomination for two years before she finally got to go to work.
Finally, let’s not forget Condoleezza Rice. The first-ever black-female Secretary of State. The woman who learned Beethoven by the age of five, the woman who graduated college at the age of 19 and was already teaching at Stanford by the age of 26. When liberal-cartoonist, Jeff Danziger got news of the nomination, he celebrated this moment of equal rights by publishing racist cartoons of Condi.
When taking into consideration the overwhelming evidence of liberals’ blatant political racism, I think it is safe to say that in any sane world outside of San Francisco, most Americans now know which party truly cares about equality for blacks.
Given the fact that this liberal-trick isn’t working anymore, straight-liberals have moved on to claim possession of the gays. Liberals like Bill Richardson, Howard Dean, and most recently, Elizabeth Edwards run around talking big-talk when it’s time to rally votes. Considering the latest development that gays also have an incredible sense of style, Elizabeth has even managed to steal-away a fabulous hairdresser for John.
Moving forward, I would like to point out a few Republican v. Democrats issues regarding the gay community:
--In 2000, after the Vermont ruling, gay activists were finally ready to start putting the test of gay-marriage to acts of Democracy. What better place to start than California, right? After Proposition 22 (to keep marriage between man and woman) passed overwhelmingly in the most liberal state in the land, activists did what they have always done best: silence their opposition and return to the courts for their victories. Thus, explaining their mad campaign in May of 2000 against Dr. Laura Schlessinger for something she said on December 8, 1998. (message for the future Matthew Shepards of the world: if you want true justice for crimes committed against you, it’s not a good idea to wait for GLAAD to respond.)
--After the passing of Proposition 22, it became apparent that whomever was going to be in the White House shortly thereafter was going to have to respond to the voice of the people on this issue since GLAAD had returned full-force to their old trick of pressuring liberal-judges to handing them their victories on silver platters. Listen up fellow gays — it did not matter if it was George Bush, it did not matter if it was Al Gore, somehow and someway the President of the United States was asked by the people to respond to this on a national level. This of course led to the Federal Marriage Amendment. Boy did Clinton get out just in the knick of time!
--After the Federal Marriage Amendment was introduced to the country, Americans voted and voted overwhelmingly on mandates against gay marriage. In California, gays were sold out by the straight liberals in 2000 with Proposition 22. In Oregon, straight liberals voted overwhelmingly against gay marriage by 57%. (Bush got 37% of the vote in the general election for Oregon that same year.)
--Arizona rejected the ban on gay marriage. (A red state where Bush won 55% of the vote and a state that overwhelmingly rejects abortion.)
--In the 2004 debates, John Kerry vocally admitted opposition to gay marriage.
--A lot of gays earn nice-sized incomes and are certainly enjoying the Bush tax-cuts (even if they don’t admit it.)
--Currently in 2007, Democrats like Sheila Jackson-Lee are trying to convince us that they want irrationally detailed “hate-crimes” bills passed (because they really, really like us) while they simutaneously want criminals pardoned like Tookie Williams by the types of judges described above. If you were the victim of a beating, would you want your attacker going before that crowd when it was time for justice to be served?
After all of this, members of the gay community within this country have allowed themselves to become sheep for the Clintons, for Howard Dean, for John Kerry, and Bill Richardson when most these politicians have factually declared that they have no interest whatsoever in advancing the rights for gays to marry. This point will be especially re-confirmed all through 2008 as Hillary will be doing her best to prove that she does; in fact, believe in God and really does have “religious values.”
So in conclusion, while some other members of our community are out celebrating abortions, hugging trees, and sweating over global-cooling (ooops I forgot, this isn’t the 70’s!) and allow themselves to continue to be snowed by straight liberals, there are a few of us like myself, Steve Yuhas, Jeff Gannon, Kevin, Patrick, and Philip who tend to think outside the realms of Gayville. All evidence proves that the goal of the Democratic party remains to keep blacks and gays in a sick-victim state to serve at their electoral pleasure.
