Nina_Hartley's_Ass: Gotta say, using racism to justify anti-gay legislation is pretty damned efficient bigotry.


The party of small, limited government puts as much policy as possible into a single piece of legislation.

Uggh.. The amount of NC idiocy on parade running up to this vote makes me sad. The fact is that this state is more diverse, progressive, high tech, and just better than it has ever been. Obama carried NC last time and looks to again, and that is really what has these people's panties in a bind. The can't stand or fathom the idea that they are no longer running the full show.

When I grew up here, it was horrible. Diverse? We had black people and white people and that was it. Spaghetti was considered an ethnic food. I felt like I was being smothered all the time. I saw some of my HS friends start to settle down right here.. I was like are you insane? I beat feet right after college to NYC and the surrounding area. Walking down a crowded street and hearing different languages everywhere and different perspectives. It felt like freedom. It felt like I was living. I only moved back because the wife (now ex) had a fit to move back after 5 years.

Now the RTP area is much like I remember from the northeast. These tight a## narrow minded mother farkers just can't accept the evolution of the state. All I remember from my youth is that everyone seemed to always be messing around or worrying about what other people were doing and ensuring conformity. Well those days are either past or on their way out.

Nemo's Brother: The stupid is hurting my brain.


...and yet you support this party vocally and vociferously in these threads day after day.

How do you reconcile "the stupid" (not to mention "the racist", "the bigoted" "the christian dominionist" and "the closeted gay") with your continued strident support? Are you so wealthy that you're willing to overlook such awful actions and words just so that you'll get a tax cut worth millions of dollars?

bdub77: Mikey1969: It was 80 degrees in Winston-Salem on Monday. She should mosey on down to Phx when it's about 117 if she wants to see what ACTUAL heat stroke is all about.

It's like 90 here in Raleigh today, gonna hit 94 on Friday. And it's not the heat that will kill you here, it's the humidity.


I worked in the woods for a summer in Raleigh-Durham. Worst goddamn job I've ever had. We had pieces of duct tape stuck to our pants to pull off the ticks before they bit. We had a contest to see who could have the most in a single day, the winner had 300+.

She is obviously carrying around some weapons grade stupid.

When I hear about people this incredibly dumb, I can't help but wonder how they actually function day to day out in the real world, I mean, it would seem that some of the things normal people take for granted as simple and easy must just be baffling to them.

During a visit to the OBX, we were watching the morning news one rainy morning. The hosts of whatever morning show were just astounded that black and white marrying was becoming socially accepted and how they never used to see a mixed couple holding hands in public. Truly mind boggling.

This did not happen. Please don't lie.


Maybe Bunky was in NC in like... the 60s or 70s or something. That's what happened, right? That's gotta be what happened. Please tell us that's what happened.

It's more of a put-down.

Religion is competitive in the South -- people snarking that they'll pray for you means that you're not as in tune to God as they are, that they're in the position to be superior to you.

You will quickly recognize the phrase has a direct correlation to the size of lampshade hat worn by a woman saying it.

Men saying it will have more annotations in their worn personal Bible than you have.

Lionel Mandrake: Brunsetter:

No. It's just that same sex marriages are not having children.

So, she thinks that a gay man, denied the right to marry his boyfriend, will say "screw it, I guess I'll marry a woman and have children"?

I do not understand these people. They are truly fkn insane.


Funny story! My godfather is gay, and married to a woman. But here's how it works. He's gay, and she's asexual, but they both wanted to foster kids. So they got married in what's basically a mutually beneficial business arrangement.

/they have several foster children they eventually adopted

cmb53208: What worries me though is that at some point, the fundies in the Republican Party are going to become wise to the fact that many black churches preach the same stone-age, anti-science, anti-woman, anti-intellectual, and homophobic derp that white fundie churches do. And at that point, they'll beg the black houses of derp for forgiveness becuase really they weren't much different from the white houses of derp. If these two join forces we may be in for some trouble.


Nah, that train left the station long ago. Same with hispanics. Both groups are natural fits for the Republican Party for the reasons you state, but the Republicans have made it clear they don't want their votes. (Some GOP groups, such as the Bush/Cheney/Rove nexus, realize the problem here, but are unable to stop it.)

Right now, pretty much the only people who vote Republican are straight white Christians. And the percentage of voters who are straight white Christians is shrinking every year. Heck, they are now attempting to piss of women as well. Straight white Christian males make up a very small percentage of voters indeed.

Funny thing here is that Obama (whose parents are of different races, of course) won North Carolina in 2008 (albeit by a very slim margin).

It's so refreshing to see Republicans being honest about their true agenda. So many times in the past they've tried to hide their racism and bigotry with nice-sounding euphemisms. I for one welcome this recent burst of honesty.
 
2012-05-02 06:30:49 PM
This makes sense. Most Republicans are white. They want to ensure the continued growth of their beliefs, and thus their party. Therefore, this is purely an effort to stop the rampant man on man republove that we all know continues to proliferate in the underbelly of the Republican scene.

Can't you see? Their race is dying. The gay republican communal hive mind is looking for a way to survive, and so they have to adapt.

It's like Dark City, except the story isn't about John... it's about johns.

ManateeGag: didn't you know, subby, only white people are smart enough to make the choice in what they have sex with. why dem people of color are just animals that fark everything in sight. why do you think they have so many babies?

Sad to say, I think you nailed it. She doesn't care if nonwhite people have nonprocreative sex, because that could mean there will be fewer nonwhite people. What matters is that white people have lots of babies to, you know, keep the gene pool ph-balanced.

God, I have to go wash my hands after typing that.

Also, what a horrid, typically Republican way to respond to the question: Um, ah, other people misinterpreted, I didn't say that, I did say that, that's not what I meant, I have a headache, shame on you for bringing this whole thing up, etc. etc.

Such contempt for the questioner was good enough for the Watergate and Iran/Contra hearings, after all.

lockers: 12349876: If this is such a big concern, take it to the logical conclusion.

Mandate that all Caucasian women have to be preggers every year and the gay men can help out by filling a turkey baster every year.

Alternatively, we could just force all minorities to be sterilized at birth. This way we can keep our adorable caucasian homosexuals and still outbreed.

/yes, I am ashamed of myself, thank you very much


NC already tried. Check out the NC eugenics laws that were finally repealed in the 1980's.

I would feel sorry for them, but I just cannot accept that what they say they believe reflects what they actually believe. To this day I still think Victoria Jackson is some giant obnoxious troll. While I can accept that the human mind is capable of that level of insanity, I can't accept that we, as a society, would allow that kind of insanity to wander freely without some kind of medical intervention.

I look at it as intense method-acting.

Watch them break out in the Speaking of Tongues sometime.

Not a one of them doesn't know, at some level, that they are just spewing out nonsense syllables in an act to conform to peer competition and pressure.

The leader breaks into it and everyone looks at him/her. The leader does it loudly. Soon, not to be outdone, one or two more who've done it many times before will start spewing syllables they know are nonsense, but they don't dare give up the act.

Soon people are pushing the newbies toward the circle, staring at them, pressuring them. The newbies are the most aware of their own act, and they clumsily start babbling, to the congratulations and social reinforcement of those around them.

Every single one of them knows they're lying to the others. Some of them figure out they're all lying to each other. But nobody will ever, ever put it in that context. The social competition is too intense.

This morning the official line was that it was being reported third-hand by a lefty blogger/journalist and that therefore she had never said anything of the sort.

I guess that the lady is now clarifying her comments guts that argument. Now they're waiting for their next talking point/rebuttals.

Next up will be "this woman is a nobody who we've never heard of she doesn't represent the mainstream views of the GOP". The wheel of talking=points is never wrong.
