I see a t-shirt. I see a message on the t-shirt. The message supports 5 things, at least 4 of which are closely aligned with the history or rights of our country. Love Trump or hate him, he IS the President. He was ELECTED. Get over it. Personally, I read the Bible, I own 3 handguns, and I love liberty and BBQ! Where’s the “hate”? As soon as word of the t-shirt, a marketing tactic by the bbq food truck, got a wider distribution than their own customers, what do you think happened? Predictably, the other lgbtq fan base got their metaphorical guns out and started blasting away.
The owners of the bbq truck, the “haters”, were soon awash in threats of violence and calls for boycotts and…..stuff that looked like hate. Real hate! I don’t see any hate in the message, I see some things to love. Do the homosexuals, transsexuals, lesbians, and queers—whatever the hell that means—own the lgbtq trademark? Is there even one? The word hate seems to work like a truncheon to stifle speech, disagreement or, in my case (with regards to the other lgbtq base), distaste. Yes, distaste. Have you ever seen a “gay pride” parade? Now imagine that distasteful public display without the restraining influence of the public. But that reality never gets talked about, does it? It’s always about love and alternative family and tolerance, never about anal sex and other lgbtq manifestations.
I am beyond sick of capitulation to the hate truncheon. This is my blog and I’ll say what I want. The real haters are those who threaten harm to anyone who disagrees with them, and use EEOC’s and lawsuits to smother dissent, or religious principles that have upheld civilization that gives even the real haters rights. The real haters are those self righteous Pharisees who cry “hater” at anyone who believes in upholding the traditional nuclear family and God’s ordained sexual differences. Oh, how unkind of me, who purports to follow Jesus Christ. Really? In Matthew 23, Jesus enumerates the guilt of the Pharisees,with “woe to you, hypocrites” six times. He criticizes them for their willful blindness. Like people who cry “hater”, then threaten violence and gleefully harass anyone they disagree with. That’s a hypocrite.
Now, where can I git me one of those shirts?
