Thus it's hard to disagree with the idiot Josh Marshall, at Talking Points Memo, when he argues that the left's depraved push for butt-ream acceptance is like the fall of the Berlin Wall. It's a done deal now, "It's Over" (via Memeorandum).
Frankly, it won't matter if it's "all over" or not. Last June's two rulings at the Supreme Court marked the national shift as far as I'm concerned. The left's corruption and lies in the Proposition 8 case were legion, but never came up on appeal to the high court. A majority of California's voters were swept aside like a spilled salt shaker. County clerks were marrying homosexuals that night, although the 9th Circuit was obligated to a weeks-long implementation delay under normal court procedures. None of it mattered. The law doesn't matter. Leftists literally leverage it to their desires as the go.
When the Duck Dynasty controversy broke last week it was just another event in the long line of criminalizing free thought by the left. Wilson Cruz, GLAAD's spokesman, summed it up when he issued the homosexual fatwa, "The country is changing and even the state in which Mr. Robertson lives is changing and he needs to get in line" (seen here at this Bill O'Reilly segment, at the one-minute mark). Wilson uttered those words with such a mien of contempt that I can see him now organizing a firing squad in front of all of those hold-out patriots who dare not toe the line to the left's fascism.
And it's truly fascism that drives this movement. I had no idea that GLAAD keeps an enemy's list for media distribution, which the organization uses to keep dissenting opinions from reaching mainstream news outlets. It's right here at the GLAAD homepage, "Commentator Accountability Project." Robert Oscar Lopez explains how it works, at the American Thinker, "Life on GLAAD's Blacklist," and note especially the conclusion:
GLAAD is hoping that the current surge of anger over Phil Robertson will begin and end with Duck Dynasty, and then the rest of us who have been erased and whose lives have been destroyed by this totalitarian organization can be out of the way again. Broom, meet rug -- sweep the human waste underneath, march on to the next court case, and proclaim victory.Lopez concludes as if it's not actually all over, that conservative America will in fact turn back the tide of leftist indecency and totalitarianism.
There's only one way that GLAAD will come out of this kerfuffle unscathed -- if you, the conservatives of America, let them. Please don't. This is much bigger than one reality show.
I'm not so sure, for the reasons that I've outlined above. The cultural rot is carving down much deeper than the issue of homosexual rights. It's down to the very question of what counts as morality and truth. And thus it's down to the question of whether America will for long remain a nation under God. And I guess therein lies kernel of hope, for in the end all of us answer to a higher truth, because make no mistake we've reached high pitch in the battle of good versus evil. Around the world countries are refusing to make that stand against evil, and thus evil continues its march of triumph. Just look at the British government's official response to the murder of Drummer Lee Rigby and you know it's a long way before people decide to say enough is enough. Right now it's moral rot all the way down. Something's gotta break at a visceral level before it turns around. Maybe GLAAD's jihad against Duck Dynasty will be it. If not, folks better watch what they say before Wilson Cruz lines them up and shouts "fire!"
And now, perhaps some related hope at Twitchy, "Report: ‘A&E caves,’ Phil Robertson will be back on ‘Duck Dynasty’."
