Every time I start to think that politics don’t matter… that there’s nothing we can do about it anyway… that they’re all alike… a lovely little Neanderthal like Tom DeLay will come along to set me straight (no pun intended).

In a speech to Knox County Republicans, DeLay clarified for me exactly why he and his cronies must be removed from power. For if he is to be believed, we Americans don’t give a damn about the economy or taxes or jobs or health care or education or the environment or terrorism. What we are (and, by his reckoning, should be) most concerned with is the crisis of homosexuality.

Americans “have been tolerant of homosexuality for years, but now it’s being stuffed down their throats and they don’t like it,” DeLay said. “They know it will undermine the very foundation of this society, will undermine our understanding of what families are.”

The very foundation of this society.

Let that sink in for a bit.

According to DeLay, if the trend continues, when you get up in the morning life as you know it will cease to exist. The fact that the state officially sanctions a commitment between two people in love without regard to their body parts will destroy the very foundation of this society.

“…security and prosperity are not worth anything if you don’t maintain and protect the American family from the onslaught that is attacking the family, starting with gay marriages,” he said. “We believe the American family is headed by a man and woman, and that is marriage, and that is the foundation of this country.”

You unmarried folk have nothing to contribute to society. You celibates are taking up valuable resources, denegrating the sanctity of the family. You homosexuals are an evil blight that must be eradicated…

There is one thing DeLay said that I agree with wholeheartedly, and I will use it to maintain my resolve in working toward the defeat of foul bigots like him:

“Every now and then, an issue that is central to who you are and what your world view is comes along.”

Thank you, Mr. DeLay, for clarifying that for me.

[ Thanks, Scott ]

  1. It’s delightsome people like this that spurred me to get myself ordained as a minister.

    Damned if I’m just going to cheer from the sidelines. I’m not just supporting same-sex marriages, I’m performing them. In defiance of the law, because it’s a law that has the same “separate but equal” crap as white and colored fountains and having people sit at the back of the bus.

    Tom Delay can kiss my heterosexual, married ass. Of course, I probably don’t count in his grand plan since we aren’t having children.

  3. domino says:

    Tom DeLay needs to come out of the closet. After all doesn

    I think domino’s onto something there. The ‘good’ Senator is likely pandering for votes, but I think there’s a fair chance that he’s just a scared little boy inside, wearing mommy’s lipstick and getting down to Erasure. I think it’s telling that he chose the image of homosexuality being ‘stuffed’ down people’s throats, for instance. That got a raised eyebrow and an ‘I see…‘, from this reader, at least.

    Either way, DeLay can go ‘stuff’ himself. Speaking as another hetero married type, I don’t need his backwards rhetoric and hate-flinging bullshit in my world. Somebody flush that goober.

  5. Scott says:

    Not to be pedantic — well, okay, maybe I am being — but DeLay is a Representative, not a Senator.

    I’m just trying to do my part for society by providing a balance to the foundation of American society…so’s we all don’t get too, uh, cocky and start taking that shit for granted. And by that, I’m eating as much pussy as possible. I’m getting DeLayed every chance I get!

  7. Solonor says:

    Yeah, whatever, Scott. ;p

  8. Linkmeister says:

    DeLay actually has opposition in his district this time; if you have any spare political cash you could throw it towards the guy (I think his name is Richard Morrison…Charles Kuffner is my Texas politics source; he’s posted about DeLay a lot).

    I thought it was womens rights that was going to “undermine the very foundation of this society”, or wait… maybe I’m thinking of the abolishment of sergregation… Why is ‘That’ arguement always the staple fallback. Seriously, I could see him ringing up a pizza delivery place ‘What? delivery in a HOUR? What’s this world coming to, must be the undermining of the very foundation of this society’.

    And since when is Straight Hetro Lovin ‘The very foundation of this society’? When did that happen? I thought it was love. Liberty and the American way… or was it just pie.
