Liberal Democrats, LGBT and MSM … You Do Realize that it was President Bill Clinton Who Signed into Law the Federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) in 1993, Right?
TODAY’S DEMOCRATS PARTY IS NOT YOUR FATHER’S DEMOCRAT PARTY, HELL ITS NOT EVEN THE ONE OF 20 YEARS AGO.
Everyone needs to watch the VIDEO below of then Vice-President of the United States Al Gore and President William Jefferson Clinton comments and their gushing over the signing of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) in 1993 (text of HR 1308)and then compare it to the reaction of the Democrat party of today. So as the LGBT crowd is losing their collective minds over the recent passage of Religious Freedom Restoration laws in Indiana and Arkansas with faux-rage, they act like there already is not a federal law that states the same thing and 19 other states that already have their own Religious Freedom Restoration laws. But instead they, Democrats and their willing accomplices in the MSM attack a small business like Memories Pizza instead.
Let’s get some facts straight here as the LGBT community, Democrats and the MSM whine about the passage of a law that was supported by Democrats. Bill Clinton said in 1993 that the federal law would do a better job of protecting Americans of all faiths in the practice of their religion.
- The bill was introduced by Congressman Chuck Schumer (D-NY) on March 11, 1993. You know, that same Chucky Schumer who is supposed to be the next Democrat Senate Minority Leader.
- A companion bill was introduced in the Senate by Ted Kennedy (D-MA) the same day. Yes, Ted Kennedy, the Liberal Lion was for freedom of religion as well.
- It passed 97-3 in the US Senate and on a voice vote in the House.
- President Bill Clinton signed it into law.
Quotes from President Bill Clinton’s speech in signing the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) in 1993:
“It is interesting to note that what a broad coalition of Americans came together to make this bill a reality.”
“We all have a shared desire here to protect perhaps the most precious of all American liberties – religious freedom.”
“The free exercise of religion has been called the first freedom – that which originally sparked the full range of the Bill of Rights.”
“Today this event assumes a more majestic quality because of our ability together to affirm the historical role that people of faith have played in the history of this country, and the constitutional protections those that profess and express their faith have always demanded and cherished.”
“What this law basically says is that the government should be held to a very high level of proof before it interferes with someone’s free exercise of religion.” This judgement is shared by the people of the United States and Congress.”
“By honoring the principle that our laws and institutions should not impede or hinder , but should rather protect and preserve fundamental religious liberties.”
“Let us never believe that the freedom of religion imposes on any of us some responsibility to run from our convictions – let us instead respect one another’s faith.”
EXIT QUESTION: JUST CURIOUS, WHAT HAPPENED TO THE DEMICRAT PARTY THAT SO CHANGED THEIR VIEWS WHERE THEY WERE 100% BEHIND RFRA?
Tammy Bruce Who is Gay Says on FOX & FRIENDS, Gay Liberals Have Turned into a Mob of Fascists and Bullies
WOW, TAMMY BRUCE SAYS GAY LIBERALS HAVE TURNED INTO A MOB OF FASCISTS AND BULLIES … PROBABLY THE MOST INTELLIGENT COMMENTS ON THE ISSUES AS I HAVE SEEN
Radio host and Fox News contributor Tammy Bruce, an openly gay women, spoke the truth on Fox & Friends when she said that LGBT people against turning into fascists. Her remarks were in repsonse to how the LGBT activists viciously and savagely went after Memories Pizza and its owners for their religious beliefs. Tammy Bruce said what everyone wanted to say, but coming from a gay person was much more powerful. Bruce blasted the LGBT community and said, “For you to turn into what we have been fighting against for generations … so that we can condemn people who are different and with whom we disagree, it is the antitheses of what every civil rights movement was about.”
She is 100% correct. Tammy Bruce also stated that Democrats are trying to use this frenzied, wolf-pack attack by gays for their own political advantage. She went on to say, “If there is any one in the world who should understand the vulnerability of being a minority, of being somebody that may be others don’t understand or relate to, the vulnerabilities of work and jobs and be able to live your lives as you see fit, IT’S THE GAY COMMUNITY.” Or so you would think. Will the LGBT take any heed to Tammy’s comments? Probably not.
The gay liberals have turned into bullies, when our work is to stop that kind of behavior
Fox News contributor and openly-gay woman Tammy Bruce warned LGBT people against turning into fascists while opposing the controversial Indiana law.
Bruce said LGBT people opposing people who support the Indiana law, like the pizzeria who won’t serve same-sex marriages, goes against everything the gay rights and civil rights movement stand for: respecting other people’s views and lifestyles.
“For you to turn into what we have been fighting against for generations…” Bruce began, adding “so that we can condemn people who are different and with whom we disagree, it is the antitheses of what every civil rights movement was about.”
Bruce then evoked fascism to caution LGBT people on the Indiana law issue: “We saw this with Chick-fil-A, everybody came to Chick-Fil-A’s defense when they were under attack by fascists, by bullies–the gay liberals have turned into bullies.”
Just like with Chick-Fil-A, the LGBT community better be careful here and not overplay their hand. With the initial mob attack on Chick-Fil-A back in 2012 and the massive support shown to the them, it would appear that the silent majority is also coming to the aid of little Memories Pizza.
Owners of Memories Pizza Express Their Freedom of Religion and the LGBT Activists & Cronies Have Become the Bullies that they Have Complained About for Years
THE HATEFUL GAY MOB: WHEN YOU BECOME THEY VERY EVIL THAT YOU HAVE PROTESTED AGAINST, YOU HAVE LOST YOUR WAY AND DON’T DESERVE ANYONE SUPPORT.
The story of Memories Pizza in Walkerton, Indiana is just the most recent example of just how intolerant, vicious and hateful the LGBT community has become lately. The state of Indiana passed a law protection religious rights with the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, a law that was very similar to the federal one and the law passed by 19 other states. However, the LGBT activists, their cronies and and all-too willing leftist MSM attacked and misrepresented the law as being anti-Gay. Caught in the middle of the controversy and in the eye of the storm was little known and unheard of Memories Pizza located in Walkerton, IN.
Crystal O’Conner was asked a so-called hypothetical question by a news reporter, which was probably more of a set up hit piece than a question, if they would not cater a gay wedding? Her answer was, if they came into their restaurant they would most certainly serve them food; however, because of their religious beliefs, they would not cater a gay wedding. The LGBT brown shirts and liberal MSM lost their collective minds.
A small town, family-owned pizzeria has become the latest target of an angry mob of modern-day fascists — hell-bent on silencing anyone who opposes gay marriage.
Kevin O’Connor and his daughter Crystal own Memories Pizza in Walkerton, Ind. — just a hop, skip and a jump southwest of South Bend.
Mr. O’Connor and his family have been forced into hiding and had to temporarily shut down their store after they told a local television reporter that they would not cater a gay wedding.
“If a gay couple came in and wanted us to provide pizzas for their wedding, we would have to say no,” Crystal told ABC 57 on Tuesday.
The backlash against Memories Pizza and its owners, Kevin O’Connor and his daughter Crystal, was immediate, swift and as vile as it gets. The anonymous cowards on social media made death threats and called Kevin and Crystal every name in the book. One not-so swift nut job actually threatened to burn their business down. Did we mention the individual who made this hateful comment, Jessica Dooley, is the softball and girls’ golf coach at Concord High School in Elkhart, Indiana. We should say was the coach was she has since been suspended. Personally, anyone who is this ignorant to have a criminal threat like this belongs no where around students. The police department conducted an investigation and forwarded the case to the St. Joseph County Prosecutor’s Office for possible charges.
“Who’s going to Walkerton, IN to burn down #memoriespizza with me?” Jessica Dooley asked in the tweet, which has since been deleted. “Agree with #FreedomOfReligionBill? ‘That’s a lifestyle they CHOOSE’ Ignorant.”
But the fix was in and the vile attacks against Memories Pizza was in. They became Public Enemy #1 of the LGBT Hit squad. Not ISIS or countries like Saudi Arabia who kill gays just for being gay, but Memories Pizza. Why, because a bully always picks on the little guy. The O’Conner’s were forced to close down their business because of the mob. Really, the owners of a business were forced to close their business for fear of their own safety. NICE JOB LGBT. Is this what is has come to? Where is the tolerance from the gay community? You mean everyone is supposed to not only tolerate but accept the LGBT? Maybe the LGBT might want to take some tolerances classes of their own.
The family business came under fierce assault by LGBT activists and their cronies — accusing them of being anti-gay bigots. Their Facebook pages were smeared with gay pornography. Their phones were overwhelmed by vulgar and profane threats.
What is sad is that the MOB mentality was allowed to act in this manner and the media fanned the flames. It was not too long ago when the gay community cried foul when the heterosexual mobs used to do the same to them. But of course its different now because the LGBT community is doing it. Sorry, there is a way to do something and a way not to. The idea that people are forced to accept what they do not believe is insane. Most people have a if that’s what you want to do and that’s your right, than so be it … but do not think that you get to infringe on my right with yours.
The SCOTUS Reject Free Speech Appeal over Cinco de Mayo School Dispute Filed by 3 Students at Live Oak High School in Morgan Hill, CA
The Supreme Court of Mexico rejected Cinco de Mayo school dispute appeal … T0o bad it was the Supreme Court of the United States … What happened to the Country I grew up in?
Reuters reports that the SCOTUS rejected the on Monday appeal and left in tact a lower courts ruling that school officials in California did not violate the free speech rights of students by demanding they remove T-shirts bearing images of the United States flag at an event celebrating the Mexican holiday of Cinco de Mayo. REALLY? So a school can tell American students in America to remove their American flag shirts because it would cause an incident at an American school. Honestly, what the “F” happened to this once great nation? Justice isn’t just blind at the SCOTUS, it also appears to be stupid.
Just curious, who thinks that the SCOTUS would have decided 180 degrees different if the school officials had asked the Mexican students to take off their shirts with the Mexican flag on it so not to insight a riot? Or if it were black students who were made to take off shirts that might cause an incident? Or if Gay-Lesbian students were forced to take off their rainbow shirts for fear of causing an incident? I think we all know the answer.
The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday left intact an appeals court ruling that school officials in California did not violate the free speech rights of students by demanding they remove T-shirts bearing images of the U.S. flag at an event celebrating the Mexican holiday of Cinco de Mayo.
The court declined to hear an appeal filed by three students at Live Oak High School in the town of Morgan Hill, south of San Francisco. School staff at the May 5, 2010, event told several students their clothing could cause an incident. Two chose to leave for home after refusing to turn their shirts inside out.
The school had been experiencing gang-related tensions and racially charged altercations between white and Hispanic students at the time. School officials said they feared the imposition of American patriotic imagery by some students at an event where other students were celebrating their pride in their Mexican heritage would incite fights between the two groups.
What part that this is America doesn’t the Supreme Court quite not get? Only in America is it considered a bad thing to wear something patriotic. This is just pathetic. Unlike in Mexico, citizens are supposed to have rights in the United States. Supreme Court, that means all citizens, including white Americans.
Just so everyone understands, Cinca de Mayo is not Mexico’s Independence Day, it celebrates the defeat of the French army during the Battle of Puebla in Mexico on May 5, 1862. Mexico’s Independence Day is on Dieciséis de Septiembre, but that doesn’t quite have the same ring does it? However let’s get real, today Cinco de Mayo has become more of an American holiday than a Mexican one giving folks the excuse to suck down some Margaritas and some cervezas like Negra Modelo, Dos Equis, Tecate or Corona.
RUT-ROH, look for the LGBT Nazi’s to bash Billy Crystal for having an opinion against theirs …
Long time actor Billy Crystal told the Television Critics Association that gay scenes aren’t “to his taste”. Billy Crystal stated,I hope people don’t abuse it and shove it in our face to the point where it feels like an every-day kind of thing.” Crystal’s basic point, which is most likely the same opinion as many people, V writers are “pushing it” when it comes to gay story-lines, and is wary of seeing same sex relationships shoved “in our face.” Crystal just touched the third rail of PC society and came out with an pinion that was not pro-Gay. Look for him to now be branded a “homophobe” by the oh so tolerant LGBT community
SOAP: When we were younger, there were no such things as homosexuals
Billy Crystal, who played one of the first openly gay characters on TV in the Seventies, told the Television Critics Association that gay scenes aren’t “to his taste”.
Speaking during a panel interview in Pasadena, the actor said: “Sometimes I think: ‘Ah that’s too much for me’.
“Sometimes, it’s just pushing it a little too far for my taste and I’m not going to reveal to you which ones they are. I hope people don’t abuse it and shove it in our face to the point where it feels like an every-day kind of thing,” Crystal added.
Of course Billy Crystal, now persona now ‘persona non grata’ with the LGBT, as well as mocked and cursed. However but it was actually Crystal who was a trend setter for the same haters during the 1970′s when he played an openly gay character, Jodie Dallas, during one of my favorite shows of all times. ‘Soap’.
And here comes tweets from those tolerant folks that ask everyone else to be tolerant, but themselves.
Whoopi Goldberg & Rosie O’Donnell Go At It Against Each Other Over Racism … “YOU ARE A WHITE LADY TELLING ME WHAT IS RACIST!”
WHEN THE VIEW ATTACKS EACH OTHER … OMG, THIS SHOW HAS GONE IN THE TOILET, NO WONDER BARBARA WALTERS JUMPED SHIP.
There is nothing better than two liberals trying to out-liberal each other. Take a good watch and listen to Whoopi and Rosie go at it when it comes to racism in America. However, what might have been the best exchange was when Rosie O’Donnell tried to compare being gay to being black. Whoopi wanted no part of the comparison. Aren’t liberals so tolerant?
“Listen! You are a white lady telling me what is racist to you,” Goldberg said, with O’Donnell shooting back, “I am a gay American.”
“It’s not the same!” Goldberg said, raising her voice.
“You guys need to know what real racism is … Racism is when someone comes up and says (expletive) and die. That’s racist.”
Goldberg added that it was “ignorance,” and not racism, that caused racial profiling, but Cox disagreed, stating that it was caused by “implicit bias.”
“I’ve been black for 60 years,” Goldberg said. “For me, stupidity, dumb folks who just say dumb stuff because they’re not looking or paying attention to the person they’re talking to, which is why people could walk up to Obama and not look up at him and see that it’s the President.”
i guess it would be astonishing for blacks and gays to hear that even white folks have been profiled, followed in stores and asked to do things as if they were the hired help.
First Openly Gay Football PlayerDrafted by NFL Team Michael Sam Has Been Cut By St. Louis Rams (Update: Clears Waivers)(Update: SF 49′ers Appear to Need D-Line Help)
Michael Sam, the first openly gay football player drafted by an NFL team has been cut by the St. Louis Rams. According to Rams head coach Jeff Fisher, the decision to cut Sam was “a football decision” Fisher said he was “proud” to be a part of the historic moment when Sam was drafted, but he also thought the emphasis on Sam’s sexual orientation was overblown. In the end Fisher and the Rams both stated that Sam’s sexual orientation was not a factor in the decision to cut him. I would have to agree as it was also a football decision to draft him.
I am sure the gay activists will disagree.
As reported at ESPN, Michael Sam officially hit waivers Saturday at 4 p.m. ET when all NFL teams had to trim their rosters down to the league-mandated 53 players. From there, the other 31 teams will have until noon ET on Sunday to put in a claim for Sam. If he goes unclaimed, he will be free to sign with a practice squad.
But just curious, notice that ESPN did not go out of their way to mention the many other players who were cut and had their dreams of playing in the NFL crushed. So, for the St. Louis Rams the decision may not have been about Sam’s sexual orientation, but for the media, that was the only thing it was about.
Michael Sam, the first openly gay football player drafted by an NFL team, was cut by the St. Louis Rams Saturday but one of the nation’s most prominent gay-rights organizations and the team’s coach predicted the defensive end will start the regular season with another team.
“This is not the last of Michael Sam,” Sarah Kate Ellis, president and CEO of gay-rights advocacy group GLAAD, said in a statement. “America is ready for its first openly gay NFL player, and Sam’s strong preseason performance leaves us confident that he’ll be wearing an NFL jersey come the regular season kickoff.”
Rams head coach Jeff Fisher told reporters Saturday that the decision to cut Sam was “a football decision,” and that competition to make the team was an uphill battle because the Rams is deep in the position he plays. Sam, 24, came out in February and was the first openly gay player drafted in the history of the NFL when the Rams picked him in the seventh round.
Michael Sam is unlikely to have a future with the Ram’s as they are deep at the defensive line, which makes me wonder why any NFL team would waste a draft pick in the first place for a position that you had no need to draft for. Any how, maybe he will get a look-see in San Francisco, they appear to be in need of D-line help.
All 21 players released Saturday cleared waivers. Sam’s future was a major topic on Twitter, some of it vitriol, some reasoned.
The Rams appeared unlikely to re-sign Sam to the 10-player practice squad because the defensive line is their strongest unit and they need help elsewhere.
- Accusing the First Lady a being transgender is out of line and lower class than usual for the aging, not so funny comedian
Daily Commentary – Monday, July 7, 2014 Download
She said what, get ready to be audited by the IRS?
Oh my while being asked by a street reporter whether a gay president or a female president will take office first, Joan Rivers says Barack Obama is gay and Michelle is a tranny, … not that there is anything wrong with it.
Joan Rivers calls President Obama “gay” and describes Michelle Obama with a homophobic slur in a new video.
Asked by a street reporter whether a gay president or a female president will take office first, Rivers replied, “We already have it with Obama.”
“You know Michelle is a tr*nny,” she went on. “A transgender. We all know.”
Hypocrisy Hillary … Wow, if Hillary Clinton can’t keep composed on liberal NPR, how is she going to handle questions as a presidential candidate or will the MSM just give her a pass like Obama?
Get ready for Hillary Clinton’s favorable ratings to drop even more as America listens to Hillary Clinton and suddenly remembers that the Clinton era gave us the words, parsing and “Clintonesque”. Neither an endearing quality. In what can only be described as another disastrous interview, Hillary Clinton snaps at the radio host Terry Gross on NPR for pressing her on her gay marriage record. Note to Hillary, an NPR interview is supposed to be a liberal softball. More at Hot Air.
CLINTON: “No, I don’t think you are trying to clarify. I think you are trying to say that I used to be opposed and now I am in favor and I did it for political reasons. And that’s just flat wrong. So let me just state what I feel like I think you are implying and repudiate it. I have a strong record. I have a great commitment to this issue and I am proud of what I’ve done and the progress were making.”
Defensive, Testy Gay Marriage Interview
In an interview this afternoon on NPR, Hillary Clinton gets testy and defensive about her and her husband’s gay marriage record.
After 6 minutes of questioning, Clinton attacks host Terry Gross for pressing her on whether she changed her mind on gay marriage or she publicly stated something she had always believed.
GROSS: “So that’s one for you changed your mind?”
CLINTON: You know I really, I have to say, I think you being very persistent, but you are playing with my words and playing with what is such an important issue.”
GROSS: “I’m just trying to clarify so I can understand-”
CLINTON: “No, I don’t think you are trying to clarify.
During the interview, Clinton also attacks gay marriage opponents who “believe they have a direct line to the divine” and claims that “not that many” people supported gay marriage when her husband signed DOMA into law.
