While Vice President Joe Biden was shooting from the lip about hope and “chains,” a 28 year-old Virginia man, Floyd Lee Corkins II, posing as an intern at the Family Research Council’s Washington, D.C. headquarters, told a security guard, “I don’t like your politics” before shooting the guard in the arm.
The guard and others subdued Corkins, who was then taken into custody. He’s been charged with assault with intent to kill and bringing a firearm across state lines. Searching his backpack, authorities found a box of ammunition and 15 Chick-fil-A sandwiches.
The Family Research Council advocates conservative positions on social issues and opposes gay marriage and abortion. Liberals look for any opportunity to blame a shooting on Conservatives and look away when their own distorted, socialist views fan the flames of insanity. What was this particular Liberal doing with a gun, by the way?
Obama misrepresented himself during his first campaign, particularly to religiously conservative blacks and Hispanics, downplaying his stance on same-sex marriage and abortion. Once he was elected and sworn in, his pro-marriage façade began to fade away. According to David Limbaugh’s (yes, Rush's brother) new book, The Greater Destroyer: Barack Obama’s War on the Republic:
“…Obama is by far the most socially liberal president in the nation’s history, a man who has reignited the nation’s culture wars and brought them to a fever pitch,” Limbaugh writes. “A fierce abortion advocate, he holds radical views on a full range of social and cultural issues…. [his] administration reliably sides with the extreme left wing of the Democratic Party.”
Limbaugh gives factual evidence of Obama’s real stand on gay issues, “painting Conservatives and Republicans as intolerant homophobes who favor a ‘small America,’ as opposed to the inclusive ‘big America’ he purports to embrace.”
“During his [first] term, Obama also signed a hate crimes bill into law that adds “sexual orientation” as a protected class, and even extended his gay rights policy to America’s foreign affairs, introducing a gay rights declaration at the United Nations, marking the first time the U.S. had endorsed such policies in that forum. He further mandated that U.S. foreign aid would be conditioned on the recipient country’s policy toward gay, lesbian, and transgender bias, and required all government agencies involved in foreign affairs to promote LGBT.”
Of course, that didn’t stop Obama from extending a $900 million grant to the Palestinian Liberation Organization (ostensibly in the hopes of “appeasing” the PLO), according to Limbaugh’s previous book, Crimes Against Liberty.
“While still claiming to oppose gay marriage, Obama strongly supports the Respect for Marriage Act, which would repeal the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which defines marriage as a union between one man and one woman. DOMA provides that states may refuse to recognize the validity of same-sex marriages in other states or territories; and prohibits the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriages” thereby relieving clergy from performing the ceremony.”
Obama denounced DOMA as unconstitutional and indicated he would not allow the law to be enforced the law or defended in court, Limbaugh says.
Now we come to the Family Research Council:
“Judicial Watch President Tom Fritton complained, ‘The evidence suggests the nation’s highest law enforcement is refusing to enforce the law to appease another special interest group.’”
“All of this is troubling,” Limbaugh says, “because the administration, by waging war against traditional marriage, is placing the imprimatur of government on the view that supporters of traditional marriage are somehow morally flawed and bigoted. As Archbishop Dolan, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, said, ‘Our federal government should not be presuming ill intent or moral blindness on the part of the overwhelming majority of its citizens, millions of whom have gone to the polls to directly support DOMAs in their states and have thereby endorsed marriage as the union of a man and woman.’”
"When the Family Research Council sued the Justice Department for internal documents related to the decision [to strike down DOMA], the DOJ withheld 27 pages of e-mails, providing Judicial Watch to file a Freedom of Information Request lawsuit.
Obama cagily argues for same-sex marriage as a civil rights issue, but marriage is not a “right”; it’s a privilege. Beyond deciding what they can do with their money, homosexuals have no particular right in this case, no more than anyone else does who, for instance, might want to marry their sister, their child or their dog, or engage in bigamy or polygamy.
Limbaugh writes further, “Indeed, the DOJ argued in a brief in a recent lawsuit that federal courts should rule that treating same-sex couples differently from married homosexual couples should be the legal equivalent of racial discrimination.” What’s more, Obama wants a federal mandate to allow same couples to adopt children and “the Office of the Navy Chaplains issue, then rescinded, a directive requiring Navy chapels to allow same-sex wedding ceremonies.”
“The assault on traditional marriage poses a threat to religious freedom,” Limbaugh cautions.
"According to scholar Thomas Messner, if enough people come to believe that the support for traditional marriage is tantamount to bigotry – which is the precise argument the Left often makes – then believe in traditional marriage could “come to be viewed as an unacceptable form of discrimination that should be purged from public life through legal, cultural, and economic pressure.
“This concern is neither imagined nor exaggerated. Messner describes three principle ways religious liberty could be suppressed:
1. Entities holding to the traditional marriage view could be denied equal access to various government benefits, and public sector employees could be subject to censorship, disciplinary action, and even termination.
2. Individuals could be subject to greater civil liability under nondiscrimination laws that include sexual orientation and marital status as protected categories.
3. Proponents of traditional marriage could be subject to private forms of discrimination and a climate of contempt for the expression of their views.”
We already know what can happen if you criticize a “protected” group, like the 94 percent of Blacks who voted for Obama. While it’s not surprising, if you were to question their ignorance about the Democrat party with which they align – why would you vote for a party that included Lyndon Johnson who, while invoking the War on Poverty, laughed about the N-people – your race - would be voting Democrat “for the next 200 years” because the Democrats had basically bought their votes? – you’d be strung up socially and probably fired from your job for suggesting such a thing.
Men, of course, have known for centuries that they don’t dare criticize a woman.
That an armed Liberal burst into the Family Research Council with a gun, shooting a security guard, tells us a good deal about the Democrats and their quest for equality. What did Obama say about bringing a gun to the fight if “they” brought a knife?
We brought our credit cards to Chick-fil-A and, just as Obama promised, “they” brought a gun.
