The Savior's EEOC Nominee says it should be illegal to have Negative Thoughts; we should be thinking purple pixies and rainbow unicorns all the time. Not because Negative Thoughts are all icky an' stuff, but because Negative Thoughts lead to inequality which must be corrected by overbearing government power weilded by complete assholes with law degrees. Especially Negative Thoughts that originate in religious belief, and which can be considered (just who gets to 'consider' anything is left vague) anti-homosexual. Quote:
"...society should “not tolerate” any “private beliefs,” including religious beliefs, that may negatively affect homosexual “equality...Just as we do not tolerate private racial beliefs that adversely affect African-Americans in the commercial arena, even if such beliefs are based on religious views, we should similarly not tolerate private beliefs about sexual orientation and gender identity that adversely affect LGBT [lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender] people...”
Yet another shot fired at all you Bitter Clingers out there. You can read of her insanity in it's entirety here.
The presumptive head of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has just come out openly in favor of discrimination. You can't make this shit up. Provided the discrimination is done on behalf of a favored group, it's all hunky-dory. In this case, the protected class will be homosexuals. The EEOC was set up to combat discrimination, Missy, not to promote it.
I should think that someone who can't even wrap her tiny mind around that simple concept is automatically disqualified for the job. But since the people in Congress who will approve her appointment, eventually, have a vested interest in keeping gays happy enough to vote for them and contribute money to their campaign coffers, they will punch her ticket.
They can do no less.
Just you wait until this sort of pantybunched liberal has to make a choice between the competing groups that make up the democratic base, and the decision quickly becomes a political headache for the democratic party. After all, who comes first on the list when it comes to societal grievance: gays, blacks, women? The fur will fly, blood will splatter, brains will explode. Why, I'm making my popcorn now, because that'll be such a fun fight to watch.
