“Johnson’s engaged in “blame whitey” by another means, which is particularly ironic in light of his ‘right-wing con job.’ The Mormon church in Utah was behind most of the California campaign, as the left gleefully and hatefully exposed, and there is no reason to think they were kidding. Hell, their side WON. How often do right-wing con jobs actually win? It was the left-wing court that reversed the popular vote. Which is par for the course. Exactly what we see on race. And illegal aliens. See California’s, again, Prop. 187. It’s a tiny elite setting the agenda. Let’s not blame generic heterosexuals for the imposition of a tiny-elite agenda. It isn’t far. It isn’t accurate.”
Note: It needs to be stressed here that the “gay marriage” supporters lost the metapolitical argument even in California.
Prop 8 was a constitutional amendment that banned “gay marriage” in California. After the opponents of Prop 8 lost at the ballot box, they sued and the issue went to the Supreme Court, where the 5-4 “conservative” majority voted 5-4 to deny standing to its supporters to defend the law in federal court.
California also passed Prop 187. Arizona passed SB 1070. Alabama passed HB 56. In all three cases, the supporters of illegal aliens lost the metapolitical argument with voters, but because of the existence of the Union, the opponents were able to find federal judges to gut all three laws.
Prop 8 was yet another illustration that you can often win within the system at the state level (every Southern state has a constitutional ban on gay marriage), but because of the existence of the Union, every issue of importance that affects the lives of hundreds of millions of people is decided by a tiny liberal elite in Washington.
There is already a pending lawsuit against Alabama’s ban on gay marriage. We know from our experience with the Loving decision (which struck down every anti-miscegenation law in Dixie) and the Brown decision (which integrated every public school in Dixie) that as long the Union exists the issue will ultimately be decided by a tiny cabal of non-Southern liberals in DC.
The Left is running the same plays that it ran against segregation, the anti-miscegenation laws, and with abortion. It never won any of these arguments. It used federal power to impose its will on the states and then announced that the issue was settled. Homosexual marriage, illegal alien amnesty, and gun control are all distractions from the real issue – the existence of the Union – in the absence of which the states would still retain the power to legislate these issues to the tastes of the people who live there.
