Freepers Love Russian Authoritarianism

President Obama went on the Tonight Show last week and said of Russia’s new law forbidding advocacy of equal rights for gay people “whether you are discriminating on the basis of race, religion, gender or sexual orientation, you are violating the basic morality that I think should transcend every country. And I have no patience for countries that try to treat gays or lesbians or transgender persons in ways that intimidate them or are harmful to them.” Naturally, that sent the Freepers into a frenzy of stupidity and bigotry.

Well homosexuality is a violation of the laws of God and HIS holy word…

Obama’s “new morality” is the amorality of hedonism. He’s New School.

Do as thou will shall be the law of the land. At least under the Satanic worldview…

Morality is grounded in God.

God calls homosexual sex an ‘abomination’.

Obama is against basic morality!

But this is my favorite:

Obama’s rhetoric is what all immoral totalitarians are using these days. You cannot speak God’s truth because you are “intimidating” or “harming” another person.

They will use this excuse in the very near future to arrest, jail, and persecute Christians who dare to tell the truth – that sin is sin.

It’s “totalitarian” to speak out against a law that throws people in jail for speaking in favor of equality. Throwing them in jail for that? Not totalitarian. Up is down, black is white, war is peace. And it continues…

Libs didn’t have issue with Russia when they supplied the VC.

No issues with Russian when the take the opposing isde in every ME nation.

The fags finally found their issue with Russia.

May Obama die of AIDS.s l o w l y…

I would venture to guess he already is. In his native Africa they call AIDS “The Slims”.

He wants the rest of us to suffer and die before he does.

Clearly the voice of morality.

Exactly. New homosexual laws will undermine the ability of the established church to keeps its doors open. Once the church goes underground, repentance and purging will begin, and only those who are true believers will be a part of it as those will be “branded: like the Jews in Germany…

Yes, he’s a demon.

And he’s moving into the same league as Stalin and Hitler…

Whatever Skippy Light in the Loafers.

Yer a real princess…

I saw that too. He’s such a fag…

If I had to be around Michelle, being gay wouldn’t look so bad.

Ladies and gentlemen, the conservative base.

    I would say “base” sums it up nicely.

    Of all the abominable comments on that page, this one offended me the most.

    You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means. – Me & Inigo Montoya

    How DARE you try to drag Inigo Montoya into your stupid homophobic bullshit?

    Look, Ed, Freedom of Speech was never meant to protect speech that normal people are against. That’s just common sense.

  • eric

    Come now, Ed, that only represents 40-60% of the GOP base. The corporate side of the party has no religious bias aganist gays or other minorities at all. True, they oppose equal treatment laws because its a form of government market regulation, but they have nothing personal against gays.

    Now the religious right suddenly wants the US to become more like Russia?

    Obama’s amateur stupidity and ignorance is without limits.

    Yeah, he should leave it to the professionals at Free Republic.

    If Obama spoke in favor of the Russian laws, we’d get the opposite reaction. When your entire political philosophy boils down to Obama==bad/not-Obama==good, this is the kind of result you get.

    Libs didn’t have issue with Russia when they supplied the VC

    VC? Viet Cong? As in Viet Nam, an event ended around 40 years ago, such that most of the people you are talking about are DEAD?

    It never ceases to amaze me that partisan rightwingers think that if they can apply the same label to you and someone long dead, somehow that makes you a hypocrite if you don’t believe as the deceased did.

    Earth to Teatards, in a font you’ll understand: FOR IT TO BE HYPOCRISY IT HAS TO BE THE SAME PERSON!

    Now there’s a Red Scare I can understand

    “…whether you are discriminating on the basis of race, religion, gender or sexual orientation, you are violating the basic morality that I think should transcend every country. ”

    Mmm, yes. And how many years were you in office before your views evolved to that point, Mr. President?

  • oranje

    Does the idea of gay sex really scare them that much? Wow. It’s not my thing, but because I don’t practice it, that doesn’t mean I’m going to go out and build an entire philosophical, legal, “moral”, and ethical architecture to not only announce that I don’t practice it, but to then trample the civil rights of those who do.

    Sheesh. Sex is fun. Let consensual adults enjoy it as they will.

  • scienceavenger

    Sex is fun.

    There’s your problem right there. The people opposed to you were Eleanor Roosevelt fans: “Sex is something to be endured.”

  • unemployedphilosopher

    It’s exactly shit like this that got me away from teaching ethics. Oh, I’ll still do it, but my department chair has told me that I’m no longer allowed to try to set students on fire with my mind, which removes some of the amusement. (And no, before you ask, I never got it to work.)

    They might want to read their history books a bit more closely. It was under those evil pro-VC Democrats, Kennedy and Johnson, that US involvement in Vietnam escalated from advisors to US forces in direct conflict with the Vietcong and US aircraft bombing North Vietnam. Conversely it was that stalwart anticommie crusader Richard Nixon that introduced Vietnamization, the gradual withdrawal of US combat forces and advisors from South Vietnam.

    Thus Mr Obama proves he is a secret Islamist because only a Muslim would say stuff like he did.
