Staver: EEOC Ruling Will Cause a Revolution

Mat Staver, the dumbest lawyer in America not named Larry Klayman, is furious about the EEOC ruling that Title VII of the Civil Rights Act forbids discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation because it is also gender discrimination. He Fires up the outrage machine and declares that it will lead to a revolution:

The Washington Post reported the EEOC voted 3-2 that Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act “forbids sexual orientation discrimination on the job because it’s a form of ‘sex’ discrimination, which is explicitly forbidden.”

When government goes beyond its authority it represents lawlessness, argues Staver, and it erodes the Republic.

“And this results ultimately in revolution, when people cannot use the normal administrative, civil processes and can’t rely upon the rule of law, people get frustrated,” Staver warns. “They push back and you give them no recourse but to resist or revolt, and I think that’s exactly where we’re headed with this kind of lawlessness.”

I always laugh at these predictions of massive civil disobedience and unrest because of same-sex marriage. Most people just don’t really care about it either way and now that it’s legal nationwide, they’ll care even less. The sky isn’t going to fall, dogs and cats aren’t going to start living together, people aren’t going to stop having kids. And no one is going to revolt over it.

Staver and his ilk imagine themselves as the leaders of some new movement that is going to reverse what has happened and return America to its glorious, discriminatory past. It isn’t going to happen. Like George Wallace and racist leaders of the 60s, you’re going to find yourself talking to fewer and fewer people, becoming more isolated from the mainstream until no one bothers to listen to you anymore. And you’re going to be almost universally reviled, much sooner than you think.

    Now, look, everybody knows that the Government protecting Unpopular Minorities is lawlessness.

    I think the US needs a revolution. Judging by what I read here, it’s beyond salvage now. The only question is, peaceful or French style?

  • dugglebogey

    The greatest victory for me in the same sex marriage result is that, since I never really had a dog in this fight, it will just become a fact of life and I can stop hearing about it all the time.

    Of course, that requires all these assholes who are still somehow against it to STFU.

    Staver is projecting again. He figures that just because he’s revolting, other Americans are too.

  • whheydt

    I agree with D. C. Sessions. I find Staver to be utterly revolting.

    Sir, please make sure you are out front, in the front line as it is, when you confront the government troops’ lines or come at me.
