Why The Foley Gambit Will Fail

The Foley scandal is aimed directly at the heart of the Republican base. The Democrats are still smarting over the anti-gay marriage ballot initiatives that did so much to bring the base out for the GOP in 2004. Foley is major payback for this 'Rovian homophobia' - now John Aravosis and the other gay pride hypocrites think they can make this homophobia work for them. They think that the Republican base (that is, narrow-minded religious bigots, in their minds) will recoil in horror at the entire Republican party for ever allowing a gay person to join it, and that these bigots will then stay home this November.

If this is their strategy, it is quite flawed. We are now living in an age where a protest against mainstreamed homosexuality such as Will And Grace seems ridiculously misplaced - the buffoon Fred Phelps, for example, is widely reviled by everyone who becomes familiar with his antics. The ballot initiatives against gay marriage were not, in fact, rooted in homophobia, but were rooted in the age-old understanding of what marriage is, and a desire to preserve the institution against a new interpretation that simply defies tradition and history. Moreover, arguments against gay marriage such as it erodes the family unit may in fact be specious, but that does not mean they are homophobic. Thus, this strategy will fail, because the Republican Party is no more a party of homophobes than is the Democratic party. Fred Phelps is a Democrat, by the way.

Just who are the hypocrites here, anyway? The only persecuters in this sorry tale are the gay rights activists who take upon themselves the right to politicize another human being's sexuality. In their view, if you are a closeted homosexual, you forfeit all rights to privacy. You must toe the ideological line and support each and every item in their agenda, or else. Isn't this the very kind of blackmail and intimidation that they accuse the homophobes of?

Ken...He resigned. Just as anyone in his position should. However, IF he had been a Dem it would have been a fight to get rid of him. Bill Clinton was in a much higher position and actually LIED UNDER OATH. At least he is doing the right thing by resigning...

We still can't seem to get rid of the Clinton's!...

Posted by: Zsa Zsa at October 4, 2006 03:39 PM

Nor can we get rid of William Jefferson.

Democrats never resign, no matter what.

The feeding frenzy the MSM is hosting for the libs is amazing!...

And the Amish thought their traditions and lifestyle would protect them from these modern sicknesses.

They must be so incredibly disillusioned.

Posted by: Ken McCracken at October 4, 2006 05:11 PM

Ken, fundamentalists cannot be disillusioned. The Amish are "nice" fundamentalists, but they are off in their own little world, literally.

Morons. The Foley case isn't about homosexuality. It's about pedophilia. Apparently you either don't know the difference or have swallowed the myth that they are the same thing.
