Judge’s haters only prove their hate

As I had predicted they would, the wingnuts are trying to make an issue out of the fact that federal Judge Vaughn Walker, who recently overtuned Proposition H8 — ruling that to prohibit same-sex marriage (yes, even at the ballot box) violates the equal rights guaranteed to all Americans in the U.S. Constitution — himself is gay.

Ironically, the wingnuts, by claiming that Walker should have recused himself from the case because of his sexual orientation, only prove that they’re a bunch of hateful, discriminatory bigots — and that such venomous discrimination is routinely leveled at non-heterosexuals.

Suppose that a heterosexually married judge had heard the case and that he had ruled to uphold Prop H8. Could I, as a gay man, then have argued that of course the judge should have recused himself — that a heterosexually married judge couldn’t have been unbiased in ruling on a case about same-sex marriage? And what would the victorious homo-hating wingnuts’ response to that argument have been?

Um, yeah.

I suppose that, following the wingnuts’ “logic,” no non-white judge ever can preside over a case involving racial discrimination, and that no female judge ever can preside over a case involving sex discrimination. Only conservative, heterosexual, “Christian” white males can be impartial judges, the right wing apparently believes. That itself, of course, is incredibly discriminatory and biased and unfair, but when were the wingnuts ever about fairness? 

Oh, well. The wingnuts can piss and moan all that they want. They’ve lost the battle over same-sex marriage.

Repugnican California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Democratic California Attorney General Jerry Brown, who will succeed Schwarzenegger, both have asked Walker not to stay his ruling, but to allow same-sex marriages to resume in California as soon as possible, just as same-sex marriages were conducted in California in 2008 after the California Supreme Court ruled in May 2008 that to prohibit them violates the state’s constitution until Prop H8 in November 2008 wrote discrimination against non-heterosexuals into the state’s constitution.

The Schwarzenegger administration’s filing with Walker urging him not to stay his decision proclaimed, “The administration believes the public interest is best served by permitting the court’s judgment to go into effect, thereby restoring the right of same-sex couples to marry in California. Doing so is consistent with California’s long history of treating all people and their relationships with equal dignity and respect.”

Yup.

What flies at Mormon cult headquarters in Salt Lake City, Utah doesn’t fly here in California.

Yeah, it’s too bad that the Mormon cult and its anti-Christian allies spent more than $40 million to force their backasswards, ignorant, hateful “Christo”fascist beliefs on everyone in the state of California, and it’s too bad that we real freedom-loving Californians had to spend almost that much money to defend ourselves against the unprovoked attack from the Mormon meddlers in Utah, but the fact is that the Mormon motherfuckers were incredibly fucking stupid for having taken on California. They bit off waaay more than they could chew.

Ironically, the unprovoked attack on California by the cabal in Salt Lake City is likely to make legalized same-sex marriage the law of the land.

My official prediction: The U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals will uphold Judge Vaughn Walker’s ruling, and then the U.S. Supreme Court either will refuse to take up the case, leaving Walker’s ruling intact, or will hear the case and explicitly uphold Walker’s ruling. Then, in all 50 states it will be illegal — because it is unconstitutional — to deny marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

Shit. I’m starting to think that we non-heterosexuals might thank the Mormon cult for (quite inadvertently) bringing us same-sex marriage in all 50 states before we ever would have achieved it on our own…

As of right this very moment, only the residents of Massachusetts, Iowa, Connecticut, Vermont, New Hampshire and Washington, D.C., have the right to marry whomever they wish to marry. It took years just to gain those victories.

Now, same-sex marriage will be legal again in California shortly.

And as goes California, so will go the nation.

Suck on that, “Christo”fascist motherfuckers.

A dingbat ate my anchor baby!

Ann Cunter parodied on “Saturday Night Live” as a “manserpent”

Gee, I had thought that the cause of our nation’s problems were such parties as the corporations that evade billions and billions of dollars in taxes while we working people sure pay ours, the bloated-beyond-belief military-industrial complex that gobbles up billions and billions of our tax dollars in perpetual wars for the war profiteers while things literally crumble here at home, corporations that spill millions of gallons of oil into the ocean and then are defended by likes of Repugnican Tea Party candidate Ron Paul and Repugnican Big Oil bribe collector Rep. Joe Barton of Texas, and corporations that ran our economy into the ground through their hocus-pocus practices and then got hundreds of billions of dollars in bailout money, because it’s socialism only if needy people get any money. (Wait — according ot the wingnuts, corporations are people, right?)

Oh, and corporate-caused global warming.* 

But I was wrong.

The nation’s economic collapse has nothing to do with the greedy corporate criminals (a phrase that is redundant) who are responsible even for the melting polar ice cap.

No.

It’s the anchor babies.

You haven’t heard of an anchor baby?

Well, that’s because this dire threat to the nation was just discovered by the Repugnican Tea Party (only coinky-dinkily because elections are just around the corner, you fucking cynic).

Seriously, though, how does a dire problem just materialize?

OK, true, the British Petroleum oil spill — which the Repugnican Tea Party says is no big deal stop picking on BP whom we owe an apology because picking on BP is un-American — more or less just materialized, but anchor babies have been with us for a very long time.

“Anchor babies” are babies that non-U.S. citizens give birth to in the United States of America in order, the theory goes, for their parents to claim U.S. citizenship. And the babies’ births are paid for by us, the taxpayers.

Ann Cunter cares passionately about this new-found “issue,” which is the topic of her latest venomfest.

Seriously, though, Cunter has become a fucking caricature.

Just when you thought the acid-for-blood harpy couldn’t get any more evil and vile, now she (and her scaly ilk) are after the poor, brown-skinned people’s babies.

I repeat: Babies.

Again: Babies.

Because Jesus Christ clearly taught that we should persecute babies.

Cunter’s biggest problem with the brown-skinned babies probably is that she isn’t allowed to eat any of them. And I am pretty sure that her jaw detaches from her skull and that her fangs fold back, enabling her to swallow a baby whole.

But just remember, voter, in November, that the nation’s ills have nothing to do with the white-skinned white-collar criminals who have been bleeding this nation dry for decades. (In the past 30 years, since 1980, we’ve had a pro-rich, pro-corporate Repugnican in the White House for 20 of those years, and for the remaining years we’ve had a Repugnican-Lite, corporate-ass-kissing “Democratic” president running the show.)  

No, don’t go after the filthy few rich plutocrats who are so far fucking removed from the damage that they cause the masses that you never even see them.

No, with your torches and pitchforks, go after those brown-skinned anchor babies.

Babies.

Because babies, especially those born to poor, brown-skinned parents, can’t fight back, and it takes real fucking bravery — you know, those cojones that “tea party” princess Palin-Quayle recently was talking about — to attack the weak and the relatively defenseless.

Just like Jesus would do.

*Cold-blooded reptiles love the heat. Maybe that’s why the members of the Repugnican Tea Party love global warming so much…
