Of Course: Gay Extremists and Bullies Now Intentionally Driving Christian Businesses out of Business

Infuriating. A bakery has decided it has no choice but to sell cakes from home -- hopefully turning a business into a "private endeavor" beyond the power of the state to coerce.

And thus Americans are forced into unemployment by a movement drunk on self-righteousness and acting with every bit of the bullying cruelty they complain of in others.

I have little doubt that these operations are not being chosen haphazardly-- I believe they're being targeted for just this purpose.

Because scratch beneath the surface of any leftist, and you'll find... well, a leftist, which means a person with a sadistic interest in using the machinery of the state to crush those who think and live differently than himself.

In an earlier thread, I commented, in reply to someone else (Soona? Soothsayer? One of the S's, anyway):

The MFM have invested their all in [Obama]. He's also the idol of their leftist passion. They'll never turn on him.

Obama is not a politician; he is the Highest Exemplar of a Cultural Type. He therefore does not represent just a politics but pinned to him are the aspirations and hopes for validation of a cultural cohort, the New Class.

The media could no more disown him than they could their own White Grandmother.

The only thing keeping me sane is viewing things in these humorous (but true) terms, a bunch of people who think They're Doing Politics but are really only engaging in perpetual self-flattery.

I guess I get very annoyed when I see this going on on the right too, with the various overheated arguments between RINOs and Traditionalists which, let's face it, are overheated precisely because they're Not Really About Politics but rather vindicating and championing one's cultural heritage.

We need to put that aside. Government isn't about vindicating a cultural cohort's minor preferences and mode of life, it's about creating a set of policies which will promote the most cultural cohorts to live their lives in peace, without interference.

But what we see here in Oregon -- as we saw earlier in New Mexico, and as we will see everywhere, unless we do not pass a law sharply delimiting people's right to sue people for unamerican, subversive crime of nonconformity with the current temporary government's ephemeral cultural allegiances -- is the attempt of a group of people who have long contended that they merely wish to be left alone to live their lives in peace suddenly feeling a little power and deciding that now that they have a short-term burst of political muscle, they may now indulge in the bullying and coercion they once thought was kind of a bad thing.

People are monsters and government is worse, as the government is the internet of people -- it permits us to vent all of our hatreds and resentments behind the wall of anonymity and free of the typical social restraints that exist in face-to-face encounters.

The government is the Internet of Life's moderators, and depending on what four-year period we're in, it will tend to let one group of trolls or another run roughshod over people just trying their best to live their lives as they'd like.

Currently the government moderators are just smitten with the Hardcore Gay Triumphalist Trolls & Vengeance Committee.

The Hardcore Gay Triumphalist Trolls & Vengeance Committee should reexamine its assumptions. They will not always have Friendly Moderators.

They might want to start considering the benefits of a society in which the government intrudes less into people's lives and does less coercing towards what the government, at any particular moment, considers The Right Way To Be Which Is Now Subject To Court Order and Enforcement.

No minority, political, racial, or sexual, should be entirely comfortable with making each and every of their actions, thoughts, and beliefs subject to Majority Vote.
