The Usefulness of Same-Sex Marriage to the Left

Posted by PITHOCRATES - March 21st, 2013

Politics 101

The Clintons and President Obama opposed Same-Sex Marriage when Campaigning because of Blacks and Hispanics

Hillary Clinton is now in favor of same-sex marriage.  After being against it when running for president.  Just like her husband.  Who was against it while running for president.  Even signing the Defense of Marriage Act of 1996 into law while he was president.  This Clinton-era law defines marriage as the union of one man and one woman.  But Bill Clinton now supports same-sex marriage.  President Obama made it categorically clear when campaigning that he believed marriage was the union of one woman and one man.  But he has since changed his mind, too.  Why?

The Williams Institute looked at five surveys that show anywhere between 1% and 2.5% of the population is gay or lesbian.  It’s about twice this number if you include bisexual people.  Which we can ignore when it comes to marriage.  For if you identify yourself as bisexual it pretty much excludes marriage from your future.  For a marriage is the union of two people.  And the only way to be a practicing bisexual in a marriage is to cheat on your spouse.  Or have an open marriage.  Because your spouse can be only one sex.  Which is not really a union between two people.  Just a loose association.  So with only 1-2.5% of the population being gay or lesbian why the full-court press by the Left?

More times than not when the issue gets on a ballot the people vote it down.  So same-sex marriage is not a burning issue with the people.  Which explains why the Clintons and President Obama were opposed to same-sex marriage when they were seeking elected office.  And why they changed their position only after it wouldn’t affect their campaign.  For they needed the help of two blocks of voters to win their elections.  Blacks.  And Hispanics.  Two very religious blocks who oppose same-sex marriage.  So not only does the general populace oppose same-sex marriage so do two critical constituencies of the Left oppose it.  So I ask again.  Why the full-court press by everyone on the Left?

The Left exploits the LGBT Community just like they exploited the Black Community for Political Gain

The Left hates Christianity.  And Republicans.  Because a lot of them are Christians.  They hate the Religious Right.  Who moralize.  Who oppose free birth control for our kids in high school.  And abortion.  The Left says Christianity oppresses women.  Forcing them into marriages instead of having a career.  And they hate the institution of marriage.  Some on the far Left go so far as to call sex in marriage rape.  Because a married woman is a second class citizen in a male-dominated society.  Mere chattel.  With no rights.  There is no love in marriage.  Only subjugation.  The Left can’t fathom the idea of any woman choosing to be a stay at home mom.  Yet they’re all for same-sex marriage and the adoption of children by same-sex couples.  For apparently there is no oppression of a stay-at-home spouse raising babies if that person is in a same-sex relationship.  For if it’s a same-sex marriage then all the traditional trappings of marriage apply.  And it’s a beautiful thing.

And now we see what the big deal about same-sex marriage is.  It’s not about that 1-2.5% of the population.  It’s about using the issue to destroy the Republican Party.  And Christianity.  For Republicans and Christians don’t oppose same-sex marriage.  They oppose lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered (LGBT) people.  At least that’s the message the Left is putting out there.  Especially to our young people.  Who overwhelmingly vote Democrat.  Who when asked what percentage they think the U.S. population is LGBT they respond with numbers as high as 20%.  Or 30%.  Something the Left doesn’t discourage.  In fact, they encourage this false understanding.  By pushing the boundaries in entertainment wherever they can.  Like that story about a real estate agent who has only two properties listed for sale. One on the road into town.  And one on the road out of town.  Because everyone driving on that road sees his signs they assume he is the biggest agent in town.  Because his signs appear to be everywhere.  So when LGBT appear on television and in the movies people see them everywhere.  And assume a large percentage of the population is LGBT.  So they feel that the opposition to same-sex marriage is not about legal and tax issues as much as oppressing a large percentage of the populace.  They see the Religious Right not as a defender of traditional marriage but something akin to the Nazi Party trying to purge undesirables from their good Christian society.  In addition to them to being evil rich people who want to take food away from hungry children.  And, of course, racists.

So the Left exploits the LGBT community for political gain.  Just like they exploited the black community for political gain.  After being the party of slavery and Jim Crowe Laws the Left changed their image.  From hating blacks to loving them.  Especially with their Great Society.  In particular with Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC).  Which disintegrated the black family.  The state replaced the father in the black family.  Removing the positive male role model from these kids’ lives.  Moved these single mothers into projects in the inner city.  Which became rife with drugs and crime.  Problems that soon found their way into the schools.  Making it a struggle for a kid in these schools to get the education they needed to get a job or go on to college.  Which is why crime is rampant in the inner cities.  And unemployment is highest among black young men.  This is what the state did to the black community.  It’s horrible.  But it did accomplish their objective.  The black community tends to vote Democrat.  Because the Democrats are always looking out for them.  Giving them things like AFDC.  While Republicans are racist Nazis who want to take things away from them.  Just because they are black.

The Left paints Republicans as Nazis trying to Purge Undesirables from their Good Christian Society

The Left wants to give out free birth control to high school kids.  And provide access to abortion.  Because there are few things kids want to do more than have fun grownup style.  And few things let them do that like free birth control and abortion.  Now with the popularizing of the LGBT lifestyle the Left is encouraging kids to be open and to explore bisexuality.  That there is nothing wrong with this lifestyle.  Or experimenting.  Which is tragic.  Because being LGBT is not like trying a different type of food for a little variety in life.  It’s not a causal dalliance.  Kids growing up gay struggle with their sexual identity.  And they try to hide it.  Because kids can be cruel.

A college student secretly recorded a gay encounter of his roommate and made it available for anyone to see.  It was so horrible an experience to live with that the kid didn’t live with it.  He committed suicide.  Which isn’t uncommon in the LGBT community.  For being LGBT is not just a lot of sex and fun.  It can be a living hell coming to terms with who you are.  And then telling your friends and family.  It’s one thing if you’re a celebrity in today’s pop culture.  But it’s another story when you’re just some kid already feeling isolated and alone.  Even though today’s culture is more accepting than it ever has been there are still a lot of cruel people out there.  And a lot of digital recording devices.  A woman who lets loose on spring break only to have a perspective employer pull up pornographic images of her when Googling her name is bad.  But being thrown out of the closet at the same time?  Try imaging that hell.

So the Left wants to do for LGBT people what they did for blacks.  Get as many of them as possible to fear and/or hate Republicans.  So they vote Democrat.  Even if it destroys these people.  For they don’t care about these people.  All they care about is politics.  And power.  Which is why they had no qualms over destroying the black family.  Or encouraging a lifestyle of anything goes.  Because who are we to say what is right or wrong?  Kids are going to have sex no matter what we say.  So we should do the only responsible thing we can do.  Help them to have sex.  And, yes, we can warn them about that sex resulting in an unplanned pregnancy or the myriad venereal diseases they could catch as long as it’s in the context of using birth control or having an abortion.  And we don’t moralize.  But we have to be a little more careful about warning them that their sexual life could end up on some pornographic website.  Because that would just be fear-mongering.  And that’s not what the Left wants people to fear.  They want them to fear Republicans.  And Christians.  Who are little more than Nazis trying to purge undesirables from their good Christian society.
