Yup, I’m going there. Just maybe not in the manner you think. To start, let’s note a few facts…
1. Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson was interviewed by GQ, during which he expressed negative viewpoints about homosexuality.
2. A&E, the show’s host network, immediately indefinitely suspended Mr. Robertson, stressing how “disappointed” it was at his expressed “personal beliefs,” which “are not reflected in the series” and “in no way reflect those of A+E Networks, who have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community.”
3. Liberals like championing specific groups and causes at specific times, even if it’s to the detriment or disregard of other groups and causes.
Think Fact #3 has nothing to do with #1 and #2? Think again.
Once upon a time, women used to be the “minority” that mattered. Everything was an issue of sexism and inequality against the fairer sex (an insult in and of itself, since it was wrong to see that women are more attractive than men), who were always being battered and wronged.
But let’s face it: You can only cry sexism so many times before it begins to get boring. After a time, ladies were no longer hip to support, and so they took a backburner to…
Blacks. Suddenly, it was all about African Americans. Everything was an issue of racism and inequality against the darker skinned (an insult in and of itself, since we can’t admit that human beings come in varying skin shades), who were always seeming to be battered and wronged.
But guess what? You can only cry racism so much before it gets boring too. So as time progressed, African Americans became old hat as well to be replaced by…
The LGBT crowd. These days, it’s rainbow this and pride that. Everything is an issue of homophobia and inequality against homosexuals (now – I kid you not – an insult in and of itself, because… because liberals are nuts), who are always seeming to be battered and wronged.
But homosexuals shouldn’t get too comfy either. They’ll end up getting “boring” soon enough, likely losing their “battered and wronged” status to illegal immigrants, who are starting to trend.
None of these movements championing one group or another are at all based on compassion or nobility. They’re based on people desperately trying to fit in and feel good about themselves, which makes them entirely selfish. Otherwise, why does nobody care these days when women get treated like sex objects or blacks find it so much more difficult to make the cut on SNL?
