Bradlee Dean’s latest column at the Worldnutdaily is nothing more than an irrational attack on Elena Kagan and on marriage equality. There’s nothing coherent about it, it’s just a list of bad arguments and insinuations that go nowhere. Starting with this bizarre statement:
In every case, states that have implemented homosexual marriage have done so through unlawful measures.
Really? Maryland, Maine and Washington just passed referendums to legalize same-sex marriage, with popular majorities voting to do so. How is that “unlawful”?
For example, in New York, after Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed the Marriage Equality Act, the New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms (NYCF) filed a lawsuit against the state due to the “out of control political process that was willing to pass a bill regardless of how many laws and rules it violates.”
And this proves that it was unlawful how, exactly? That case was nonsense and it was dismissed. The law that was passed was voted on by duly elected officials and signed by the governor. How could that possibly be “unlawful”? I mean, unless you just think anything you disagree with must be illegal.
Massachusetts, home of radical homosexual Barney Frank, was the first state to “pass” homosexual marriage. It was manipulated through the un-Judicial Court of Massachusetts (again bypassing the people), and immediately thereafter efforts began to overturn this decision by amending the state’s constitution.
And those efforts failed. And the people of Massachusetts support marriage equality by a large margin. Again, how is this “unlawful”?
Now the United States Supreme Court is considering whether to review a challenge to California’s ban on homosexual marriage. Seven million California voters made their voice heard that they were in agreement with “the laws of Nature and Nature’s God,” banning homosexual marriage. Radical homosexual activists got involved and circumvented the people, bringing the case before a radical homosexual judge, Vaughn Walker, who overturned Prop 8.
Yeah, Judge Walker is a “radical.” That’s why Reagan appointed him. And why gay rights groups actually opposed his nomination because he had represented the plaintiffs in an anti-gay lawsuit. Of course, in Dean’s fevered imagination, all gay people are “radical.”
The stage has been set – and just in time. Before the November elections, Obama came out in support of homosexual marriage. Of course, he first had to repeal the military’s DADT policy and place a few minions in key positions … such as the Supreme Court … before he made his announcement.
Such a one is Elena Kagan.
No, that’s false. Kagan replaced another liberal justice. So did Sotomayor. Their appointments didn’t change the outcome of any case involving same-sex marriage a bit.
Elena Kagan had never judged a case a day in her life, yet Obama, unqualified for office himself, has seen fit to “qualify” her on the Supreme Court bench – just in time for the Court to review homosexual marriage.
You don’t have to have already been a judge to be nominated to the Supreme Court. Kagan was one of the most respected legal scholars in the country, by Republicans and Democrats alike. And isn’t it amusing that an ignorant rock drummer with no education at all thinks that a guy who graduated from Harvard Law School is unqualified to be president?
