Ever notice the left and the libertarians always accuse the right of using cultural issues to fire up their base? And that such issues unnecessarily divide the country and the Republican party? But when the left brings up divisive cultural issues to fire up their base, those same critics of the right are quiet as a church mouse.
The lame duck Congress and Senate are devoting all their precious time before Christmas break to solving THE most pressing issue in the entire country, now that OmniPorkII has been pulled off the table in abject defeat. You guessed it! They are trying to jam the repeal of “Don’t Axe Don’t Tell” down the military’s throat. Heaven forbid that some faggot somewhere might want to tell the world that he is a buttpucker right now, without waiting for the next Congress to adjourn.
And all you cultural conservatives who want to rise up and object to the repeal of this doctrine? “Hush, child. We got more important things to do,” the libertarians will tell you. “Focus on fiscal issues. Focus, focus focus.” When what they really mean is “Fuck Us.” In other words, we–cultural conservatives–are dupes to the Republican party. They want–and dearly need–cultural conservatives to make up their base, and to help enact their fiscal conservative issues. But then they–Republicans and libertarians– try to keep we cultural conservatives from even joining the fray.
The reason the cultural conservative Republicans keep fighting the cultural issues is not to fire up their own base, it is because the disgusting left keeps bringing up those issues, always attacking, and the cultural conservatives are the only ones left to fight back.
