Time for the backlash
If you don't like to hear me cuss, don't read this fucking post!
The backlash that everyone and their mother tried to tell the "gay rights" movement that was coming. I can't count the number of people who tried to warn everybody. Mrs. du Toit tried, I've tried, hell there were legions of people out there screaming "STAY OUT OF THE COURTS" at the top of their lungs, but NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, you didn't want to listen to us! No, you had to decry us as bigots, you had to scream about MARRIAGE APARTHEID, you had to sneer at us "redneck conservatives" who were stuck in the 19th century, DIDN'T YOU?!
FUCKING DIDN'T YOU?!?!?!?!
Bush flat out stated that if the judges continued to legislate from the bench, he would back a constitutional amendment to define marriage as between a man and a woman, didn't he?
But you didn't listen to him either, did you? No, you would just continue to get some judge to wave his hand and make it the way you wanted it! You would bypass the ENTIRE FUCKING LEGISLATIVE PROCESS, thereby insuring that the people, through their elected representatives, would have ABSOLUTLY NO FUCKING SAY ABOUT IT, didn't you?
FUCKING DIDN'T YOU?!?!?!?!?!
Well congradu-FUCKING-lations, you now have a constitutional amendment being written to erase EVERY LAST FUCKING BIT OF PROGRESS YOU EVER MADE! Since you tried to bypass legislation WHICH PEOPLE WOULD HAVE BEEN FINE WITH, you now get to reap the rewards! When you took the voices of the people out of your nifty little solution, you in effect gave them a figurative kick in the nuts and said "FUCK YOU, PLEBE! WE DON'T CARE WHAT YOU THINK, WE'RE DOING IT THIS WAY!"
But people only stay down for so long after they get kicked. And when they get up, they're mad.
You could have gotten legislation passed, and it would have been fine. You could have argued your case in the open, and it would have been find. YOU COULD HAVE GOTTEN THE DESIRED RESULT BY LEGISLATION, and it would have been fine. But you didn't. And now this country is worse off because of it!!! Thanks to all you people who think that legislation by judicial fiat is just hunky-dory, we are now about to have a FUCKING CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT! ARE YOU FUCKING HAPPY NOW???? ARE YOU FUCKING PLEASED WITH YOURSELF????
The worst part is that this Amendment stands a good chance of being passed! Maybe if people got the hell out of San Francisco and Vermont, you could figure out what the hell people in this country think! But you didn't fucking do that, you just told everybody to shut up and deal with it! And now the people are pissed and they're about to shove back in a way that will set this country back YEARS! ALL BECAUSE YOU COULDN'T FUCKING BOTHER TO DO IT RIGHT!
Fuck it, you've made your bed, now you get to sleep in it. You wanted to have your way, and you wanted it right now, and fuck everybody else YOU'LL JUST THROW A FUCKING JUDICIAL TEMPER TANTRUM UNTIL YOU GET YOUR WAY FUCKING WON'T YOU!
I hope you're happy. I'd like to say that this would be my last post on the whole subject, but I know I'll probably get pissed AGAIN and rant AGAIN, so fuck it. I tried being nice. I tried yelling. I tried to point out that by getting a judge to force your opinion down citizens throats was the wrong way to do it, and I got called a bigot. Now the backlash that everyone and their mother predicted is here.
I'm going to try to fight that backlash, but I don't know if I can. I honestly think that this Amendment is a bad idea. I might just be in the minority.
