I thought long and hard about how to write this article. I literally just read quite possibly the most insane thing I’ve ever come across. It was written by the president of the Tea Party Nation, Judson Phillips, in response to Arizona Governor Jan Brewer vetoing the anti-LGBT bill that was passed by the Arizona State Legislature. And I’m not kidding when I say it’s absolutely insane.
I’ve decided the best way to address this letter is just to go part by part, adding my commentary as we go.
The first part is just a general slam of Jan Brewer saying she’s never been the most courageous Republican.
The left and the homosexual lobby in America went into overdrive to kill this bill. Conservatives rallied for this bill and Governor Brewer opted for cowardice instead of courage.
Well, it’s true – the “left” and “homosexual lobby” (otherwise known as Constitutional Americans standing up for equal rights for all Americans) did do everything they could to kill this bill. But conservatives didn’t “rally” for this bill. Heck, even some of the ones who voted for it in the state legislature said Governor Brewer should veto the bill. Several prominent Republicans, including Arizona United States Senator John McCain, said Governor Brewer should veto the bill.
Why is this bill so important and what did it mean for not only Arizona but America?
The issue can be boiled down to one word: Freedom.
A free man or woman controls their labor. A slave has no control over their labor. A free man or woman decides who they will work for and under what conditions. The slave cannot.
The left and the homosexual lobby are both pushing slavery using the Orwellian concepts of “tolerance” and “inclusiveness.
That ignorance pretty much speaks for itself. Somehow protecting people from discrimination is limiting the “freedom” of those who want to discriminate against others.
The law began as a response to a case in neighboring New Mexico. There, the state of New Mexico allowed a lawsuit against a Christian photographer who declined to photograph a homosexual commitment ceremony. There have been similar cases with bakers in Oregon and Colorado.
The Arizona legislature acted to preempt that happening in Arizona.
Immediately the left and the homosexual lobby went into high dudgeon. Arizona’s SB1062 must be defeated because Americans really are no longer free and must be forced to serve the great liberal state, regardless of their beliefs.
I tried to “Google” these supposed lawsuits, I found absolutely nothing on any of them. And as delusional as this guy is, I really doubt these comments are based on anything factual. Though I could be wrong.
The storm rose against Arizona and Jan Brewer proved she was no Ronald Reagan. She has an honored place in the ranks of the French Republicans. Corporations and business interests, many of whom support far left wing causes, like Apple demanded this bill be vetoed. Apple gives 96% of its political giving to Democrats. Why a Republican listens to a word from Apple or lifts a finger to help them is beyond comprehension. The NFL threatened to pull the Super Bowl from Arizona in 2015.
Someone with courage would have called their bluff. Arizona has Jan Brewer.
This is where it starts getting good. She’s no Ronald Reagan? Does he really think Ronald Reagan would have supported this asinine piece of legislation?
It’s funny though. He talks about the “power of business,” so to speak, being limited by the veto of this bill – yet attacks businesses for using their power to voice their strong opposition to this bill. He slams Apple for being “liberal,” but seems unable to explain why the NFL (which can’t exactly be described as political at all) opposed the bill. He also fails to mention the over 80 other companies who strongly spoke out against this legislation.
The left came up with bizarre and insane arguments against SB1062. They tried to equate sexual preference with race. Unfortunately few will stand up against that grossly inaccurate analogy. The left believes that it has the right to dictate what religious beliefs are allowed.
They need to be reminded what our Declaration of Independence and our Constitution say. Our rights are given to us by a higher power than the government and cannot be taken away.
This guy is calling the left “bizarre?” The “left” tried to equate equal rights with equal rights. After all, couldn’t you replace “homosexual” with “black” in this letter and use it to argue against desegregation?
“The left believes that it has the right to dictate what religious beliefs are allowed.” No, we don’t. What we say is that you can believe whatever you want, you just can’t use those beliefs to discriminate against other people.
Oh, and our Constitution states that Americans have the freedom of religion and makes absolutely zero mention of the words “Christian” or “Christianity” anywhere in the text.
The left loves to come up with absurd hypotheticals to scream that there must be compliance with their fascism, so how about a couple from our side.
Should a devout baker be required to create a cake for a homosexual wedding that has a giant phallic symbol on it or should a baker be required to create pastries for a homosexual wedding in the shape of genitallia? Or should a photographer be required to photograph a homosexual wedding where the participants decide they want to be nude or engage in sexual behavior? Would they force a Jewish photographer to work a Klan or Nazi event? How about forcing a Muslim caterer to work a pork barbeque dinner?
First, I would like to point out the misspelling of the word “genitalia.”
But don’t let that distract you from the other parts of this particular section which are completely insane.
What bakery makes “giant phallic” wedding cakes? Not only that, who has a wedding featuring something in the shape of a giant penis or vagina? That shows how absolutely ignorant this fool is. To him, being homosexual means you must be obsessed with sex.
I guess straight couples couldn’t request a penis shaped wedding cake? Is this something only homosexuals would do?
And I absolutely love his idea of a homosexual wedding where people break out in sudden nudity, engaging in some sort of sexual behavior.
What the hell does he think goes on during a gay wedding? Giant orgies?
But once again, isn’t this something straight couples and straight weddings could technically do as well?
Then let’s not forget the fact that any bakery, or photographer, can simply refuse a job. Someone can offer them a job, they can simply decline – end of story.
A couple requesting the service of a particular baker or photographer doesn’t mandate that the particular baker or photographer chosen must work their wedding.
And I’m not even going to comment on his ridiculous Nazi reference. It’s just stupid.
SB1062 was never about discrimination. It was about the left imposing its will on Americans who disagree.
The most common victims of the left wing homosexual assault on freedom have been Christian bakers and photographers. These are not uncommon skills. In even the most rural areas you can find them.
Does anyone really believe these cases of Christian bakers or photographers being sued over their refusal to provide services. Over the last couple of years, a number of articles have been published in professional photography magazines about how to cater to homosexual weddings. For many photographers, this is a growth industry.
If a photographer or baker doesn’t want to take a particular job, liberty says they have the right to decide how their labor is used. Slavery is when the state tells them their labor will be used whether they like it or not.
SB1062 is a bigger story than simply the story of a cowardly governor who has no core beliefs.
I honestly have no idea what this guy’s obsession is with bakers and photographers. “These are not uncommon skills.”
Wow, really? You don’t say!?
“Does anyone really believe these cases of Christian bakers or photographers being sued over their refusal to provide services.” Nope, sure don’t. Hey – he said it. I can’t help if he didn’t seem to even remotely proofread his letter.
With or without this Arizona legislation, photographers and bakers can still refuse to do something.
Besides, if a straight Christian couple requests a “penis cake” from a bakery – and the bakery says they won’t make it – is that then an attack on Christianity?
Because I hate to break it to this clown, but I have seen several “x-rated” cakes – at heterosexual bachelor/bachelorette parties. I don’t get why he seems to think that only homosexuals would request such an item.
Oh, I know why, because he’s a moron.
And let’s take things a step further. What if a Muslim baker refused service to a Christian woman because she wasn’t wearing a burqa? Would Mr. Phillips be speaking up for their right to refuse service?
Nope. Because to people like Mr. Phillips, “freedom of religion” means “freedom to practice and force Christianity on everybody – any other religions can get the hell out of the country.”
SB1062 is the story of liberalism at work in America.
Liberalism is the paranoid belief that leftists have that somewhere, someone may be thinking for themselves. It is the tyrannical belief that no deviation in belief is allowed from the decreed orthodoxy.
It is the antithesis of liberty.
It is tyranny on the march.
And this was the conclusion of his rabble.
I love how he acts as if liberals are unable to think for themselves. He wrote this piece of trash letter, advocating some of the most unbelievable ignorance I’ve ever witnessed, yet he says liberals don’t have the ability to think for themselves.
This letter was by far the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever read – and I’m not really exaggerating.
And the scary part is, this guy is the is the president of Tea Party Nation.
He’s not some random person they found on the street. This guy is the president of the Tea Party Nation – and he’s completely out of his mind. (Though to be fair, I’m sure some random guy they found off the street would make far more sense than Judson Phillips.)
The utter stupidity, ignorance and insanity that’s found inside this letter really can’t be summed up in words. There’s no closing to this article that I can provide to accurately summarize the astounding ridiculousness of what anyone who read this letter might be feeling. Hell, I can’t even find the words.
This letter is filled with such ignorance, hate, stupidity, insanity and deranged mental illness that I’ll conclude by letting it speak for itself.
