Conservative part-time columnist and full-time hate-monger Michelle Malkin describes our anger at becoming second-class citizens and having the right to marry stolen from us as "insane rage", as if it would make sense for us to be calm and happy about an entire class of people being de-humanized.
She quotes from an amazingly slanted article, "Prop. 8 backlash reaches to Texas" that appeared in a Texas newspaper, The Austin American Statesman. The article refers to an Austin-based web site, Warren and Derrick,Â that has a "'blacklist' for businesses linked to money that supported [the] gay marriage ban". ItÂ quotes the site's owners as saying,
""We had some reservations before putting up that list because we realize those were private donors and they may not have been speaking on behalf of the company they work for," he said."
To which Malkin comments, "But they did it, anyway", leaving out the next paragraph in the article, that explains
""But at the same time, they get their salaries from these companies and we would like to see those companies speak up and say, 'Hey, you know, this is not what our organization stands for,' " Clark said."
But it would be too much trouble for Michelle Malkin to offer up full facts.
Most of Malkin's most hateful and caustic words are on the topic of gay people finding love. God forbid, right, Michelle? On our win in the case against Christian dating service eHarmony, Malkin had this to say,
"Homosexuals will no longer be denied the inalienable â€œrightâ€ to hook up with same-sex partners on eHarmony."
I guess if you're straight, in Michelle Malkin's eyes, it's a dating site to find love and a relationship. If you're gay, you must only be looking for sex. I think the proper term for someone like that is "bigot". (Webster's agrees.)
"New Jersey plaintiff Eric McKinley can now crown himself the new Rosa Parks â€” heroically breaking down inhumane barriers to Internet matchmaking by forcing a law-abiding private company to provide services it was never created to provide."
Nice slur attempt there, Malkin, calling the plaintiff a queen. (As if there's something wrong with that.) And eHarmony obviously was not "law-abiding", as the court ruled against it and demanded financial compensation. It would appear eHarmony was breaking the law. More,
"â€Men seeking menâ€ has now been enshrined with â€œI have a dreamâ€ as a civil rights rallying cry of the 21st century. Bully for you, Mr. McKinley. You bully."
Well, in a way, Michelle, yes. And that's what this site is about. Working to ensure that gays have the same rights as straights. You, know, like in the Constitution, that states that all men are created equal. So, if you are standing up for your rights and beliefs, but you're gay, Michelle Malkin thinks you're a bully. If you're standing up for your rights and beliefs, and you'reÂ Michelle Malkin, you're a hero. Do we feel rage? Damn right we do.
