For some, Patriotism is dependent on your sexual orientation

One of the Right's favorite fringe fundamentalist has preemptively come out [pun intended] against supporting Liz Cheney in her apparent run for the Wyoming Senate seat. I'm not fond of Cheney, the waterboarding fan-girl, but to tie one's alleged lack of patriotism on the fact that they support equal civil rights for all laughable. But sadly the status quo in much of the GOP.
In 2009, she inartfully dodged two attempts to press her to declare her position on sodomy-based marriage, which in the end means just one thing: she’s for it.

Although I’m not aware that she has declared a position on ENDA, in 2009 she supported the State Department’s decision, in flagrant violation of DOMA, the law of the land at the time, to extend benefits to same-sex partners.

Said Ms. Cheney, “I think it’s wrong to discriminate, in those relationships, based on someone’s sexual preference.” Homosexual activists prefer her to Enzi for the sole reason that she just might be a “sleeper vote for LGBT rights.”

She supported the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, which is driving values-based members of the military out of the service and ushering in militant homosexuals. Currently, 55-60% of  all sexual assaults in the military now, thanks in part to the DADT repeal, are committed by homosexuals.

Liz Cheney will be an undeniably appealing candidate, and conservatives will be tempted to turn a blind eye toward her support for the deviancy cabal. But we do so not only at our peril but at the peril of the future of our country.

George Washington famously said, “Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness.”

The bottom line: Liz Cheney is not, under Washington’s definition, a patriot. She will throw her weight behind those who are placing improvised explosive devices beneath both of Washington’s indispensable pillars. When the roof collapses on us all, those who supported Liz Cheney will be partly to blame.

  1. Fundamentalism -- even of the Christian variety -- is not "patriotism" it is FANATICISM. Fanaticism, other than the variety devoted to the pursuit of perfection in the Arts -- is a dangerous form of madness.

    If called on to describe myself, I would tell you I am a political Conservative, a liberal, intellectual Christian who seeks more and better common sense reasons for continuing to practice and support the faith. First and foremost, however, I am a Humanitarian with profound Libertarian Leanings.

    As a matter of Principle, I am against ALL forms of GroupThink, which is just another name for Mob Psychology.

    I take my motto from Walt Whiman who said:


    damned good advice, if you ask me.

    1. Sound advice indeed. In my estimation, it points to serious insecurities when one tries not only to sway someone to their point of view but rather, attempts to change factual defintions within their rhetoric to include or exclude their fellow citizens from notional groupings of citizens.

      IOW, if you don't believe as I do, and I consider myself a patriot of the highest order, then you are not a patriot.

      Intellectual curiosity seems not only like a lost art form, but is essentially derided by the narrow minded. And they seem to have the stronger voice in our current culture.

  2. I agree that some on the Right are obsessing over sexual orientation. But those pushing the gay agenda are obsessing over sexual orientation too.

    Frankly, I want to keep the bedroom out of the ballot box!

    1. That depends on how one would define the 'gay agenda'. When the agenda is individual liberty, it should be pushed...and pushed hard.

    2. Depends entirely on the MOTIVE. When the left becomes interested in championing a "cause," however just or noble, you can be quite sure their TRUE motive is to increase their ever-tightening grip on absolute power.

      The left does NOT want "justice," it merely wants BOSS US AROUND, and will use any every "crisis," real or imagined, and every social "problem" to gain leverage in the ceaseless quest reign supreme and unopposed.

    3. There's no argument that this occurs, but with both parties. This is why it is incumbent upon the citizenry to ensure that actual issues of justice and liberty do not get co-opted and abused for rank political gain.

      How we do that with the overbearing duopoly and their media the infernal question.
