“This issue is lost. I don’t care what the Supreme Court does, this is now inevitable — and it’s inevitable because we lost the language on this. …” – Rush Limbaugh
TODAY’S so-called conservatives are completely clueless about the ideology they trumpet. However, Rush Limbaugh is so pitifully ignorant about it he actually believes that marriage equality, gay marriage, was lost by the right because they’re bad at political Scrabble.
This is how fundamentally they misunderstand the very foundation of this country, which is what they parrot all the time, but never defend. It begins with one simple, but powerful, word.
That word is backed up by another.
Both are supported by every document our founders ever wrote.
Extremist Republicans and so-called conservatives today didn’t inevitably lose the marriage equality battle because of a political word game.
The extremist American right lost the marriage equality debate, because it comes down to the basic freedoms of people in this country to be treated equally under the law, without exception.
These people are so fundamentally lost it’s truly incredible to watch what’s playing out right now. They are fumbling through historic times without a sense of what’s actually happening.
As we get further into the 21st century, generations will look back on people standing against history’s turn and wonder how people like Rush Limbaugh and others of his ilk ever held sway.
Technology has made right-wing radio a communication dinosaur, something I’ve been waiting to see happen for a very long time.
Times are changing. Adapt or die off.
Conservatives need new leaders very badly and this week just how badly was on full display.
Democrats came out one by one, evolving on marriage equality, which may not seem like much, but compared to Republicans they looked like oracles.
