Stacy McCain on the Chick-Fil-A nonsense:
Better yet, if you’re going to get angry over every business run by traditionalist Christians, you should also boycott Domino’s Pizza (founder Tom Monaghan is a hard-core Catholic) and Little Debbies (produced by the McKee family of Collegedale, Tenn., who are hard-core Seventh-Day Adventists).
All of this goes to illustrate the totalitarian spirit of gay-rights radicalism, which aims toward the extirpation of dissent.
Amanda Marcotte (via NRO) on the subject:
Blocking Chick-fil-A permits on speech issues is wrong and unconstitutional. Don’t go there, folks.
. . .
Fight bad speech with more speech. It’s weak to think our arguments have no power.
. . .
Plus, making martyrs out of them by denying them their fundamental right of free speech is counter-productive.
. . .
I basically refuse to give the government power to ban me from making money to punish me for my political opinions. Full stop.
I sensed a great disturbance in the force this morning and the sight of Amanda Marcotte on the same side of an issue as Robert Stacy McCain certainly qualifies. I mean Marcotte’s position is so damn…American!
Both Stacy McCain and Amanda Marcotte understand a basic truth: Don’t give government a power over you that you won’t trust your enemies with.
A hint to the HRC. If your position is so far left that when you look across the line you’ve crossed Amanda Freaking Marcotte is standing with Robert Stacy McCain on the other side, you’ve jumped the shark.
I eagerly await the Marcotte/McCain photo, holding wine glasses together.
Update: Stacy says the link above is to a post by Smitty, Smitty says that one’s not his Just to play it safe is here a Stacy post on the subject:
Exit question: Is it a good sign for America that Marcotte gets this or have my expectation gotten so low that an American respecting the 1st Amendment is a big deal?
DaTechGuy Fundraiser is still in progress. I will happilly accept support from readers of Robert Stacy McCain or Amanda Marcotte as my bank account can’t tell the difference.
Any help is appreciated. For details click here for the progress check the thermometer to the right and to kick in hit DaTipJar”.
