Thought Crime: The Reality is Now

     A Family Farm is being punished for expressing thought crimes, with the punishment meant to “deter” people from expressing incorrect thoughts.

     The excuse?

     The family farm rents out their barn and amenities for wedding ceremonies, with family members enthusiastically helping out.  However, they do not believe in same-sex marriage and have been fined $13,000 for not wanting to enthusiastically celebrate a celebration that they do not morally support.

“Here’s the back story. In 2012, Melissa Erwin and Jennie McCarthy contacted the Giffords to rent the family’s barn for their same-sex wedding ceremony and reception. Cynthia Gifford responded that she and her husband would have to decline their request as they felt they could not in good conscience host a same-sex wedding ceremony at their home. The Giffords live on the second and third floor of the barn and, when they host weddings on the first floor, they open part of the second floor as a bridal suite.

“The Giffords have owned and operated Liberty Ridge Farm in Schaghticoke, New York for over 25 years. Like many small farm families, they often open the farm to the public for events like berry picking, fall festivals, and pig racing.”

     Of the $13,000 the family is being fined for, $1500 each is for the “mental anguish each suffered” for being told that two women hitching up ain’t the same thing as a union of a man and a woman.  The additional $10,000 is for “‘the goal of deterrence‘ as well as the Giffords’ clear stance against same-sex weddings.”

Quick Takes – Gender Redefined, Sex-Ed Redefined, & Weddings Redefined

     Another “quick takes” on items where there is too little to say to make a complete article, but is still important enough to comment on.

     The focus this time: Redefining Sexuality so that everything is spiffy… except for sex in the missionary position with an opposite-sex spouse for purposes of pro-creation.

     First, a little mood music:

     Carrying on…

     Can “men” become pregnant?  If one believes that gender is the same thing as biological sex, then the obvious answer is NO.  But if, contrary to the vast majority of societies across time and the entire planet have understood, “gender” is considered something distinct from whether one has dangly bits or not, and any biological female that can become pregnant can be a “man” or a “woman” or any other made up “gender.”

“Well, maybe Exhibit A should be Oprah Winfrey introducing us to ‘the first pregnant man’ in 2008. This would be a woman named Tracey who ‘transitioned’ to being Thomas by having a double mastectomy with a dose of hormones to produce facial hair and such. Thomas thought it would be nice to have a baby someday, and so decided to keep ‘his’ vagina, uterus, and ovaries intact. But for some reason, even though Thomas was legally documented as male, she (oops!) needed a sperm donation. (Life isn’t fair.) In any event, when pregnant, Thomas was happy to pose nude (mostly, anyway) for the camera.

“Thomas has since had two more children and in 2012 decided to undergo surgery for a more complete transition to a male bodily appearance. She now lectures on ‘trans fertility and reproductive rights.’ Most do not understand what a seismic shift in language is being pushed here. In this scheme of things, using the pronoun ‘she’ to refer to a person who goes through pregnancy and gives birth to a child is grounds for punishment.”

     This is not about liberating people, but about deconstructing biological reality and replacing it with delusional and destructive idiocy:

“Let’s think this through a bit more. If gender distinctions are erased in law, all marriage will become legally obsolete. The elites pushing same-sex ‘marriage’ have known this all along. If you thought it was really marriage equality they were after, see point three in this Federalist article, ‘Bait and Switch.’

“If we agree to change language to suit the transgender lobby, we ultimately agree to destroy in law the entire basis (sex distinctions) for the only union that can result in autonomously formed families. The implications for privacy and personal relationships are vast, and we need to understand that.”

     How can you have any privacy against the state if they can define, and redefine, every aspect of you very being?

The Queering of Oppression

     Yet another example has arisen of a business being persecuted for declining to serve a gay customer.  Unlike previously noted examples, the refusal was not based on declining to use the owners personal creative abilities to promote and endorse something with which they morally disagreed, but to outright refuse to serve someone because they cross-dressed.

     Who were these dastardly oppressors?  A gay bar.

     But not just any gay bar, but one targeted towards “Bears,” who “place importance on presenting a hypermasculine image and may shun interaction with, and even disdain, men who exhibit effeminacy.”  The patron who was denied was simply a cross-dresser, and not even one who identified as the opposite “gender.”

     This is yet another example of gays being labeled the “oppressors” rather than the “oppressed.”  It is also a sign of absolute hypocrisy to force acceptance on others and then whine when others do it to you.  If you can force others to “tolerate” and cater to yourself, the groundwork is laid to allow others to force you to “tolerate” and cater to them.

British Cabinet Loses Token Muslim Over Insufficient Israel Bashing

     Baroness Sayeeda Warsi, who served in the British cabinet at Minister for Faith and Communities, resigned over the British government’s stance on Israel.

     Of course, here her connection with radical Islamist party Hizb ut-Tahrir probably didn’t have anything to do with her stance that Israel should just stop being meanies by not letting Hamas commit genocide.

     The irony is that P. M. David Cameron has been willing to go against Israel.  But apparently not against Israel enough.

     Looks like Britain’s Labour Party is courting Warsi, or at least the “kill-all-the-Jews” crowd.

A Question for Ross Miller

     Nevada Secretary of State, and Democrat nominee for Nevada Attorney General, Ross Miller, is on the record that it is not only unacceptable, but that “profiting off encouraging people to fantasize about violently murdering those with divergent political views” isn’t even legal… especially when those with “divergent political views” are fictional zombies.

     With such dedication to stomping on the 1st Amendment in order to protect zombies (and presumably other fantasy monsters), will Ross Miller complain about the game “Battlefield Hardline” where you have the opportunity to kill members of… the Tea Party?

Screengrab of the game on Breitbart

 

“When finding evidence in a trailer that your captors are connected to the construction or sale of a missile, the player character remarks, ‘Looks like your old friends have gone way past bank robbery.’ Marcus replies, ‘One black president and Tony completely lost his shit,’ as a Gadsden flag, a symbol of the Tea Party movement, is displayed prominently on the wall.”
