It’s not a difference of opinion. They are wrong.

Yeah, so, stop treating racism, sexism, homophobia, anti-vaccination and climate change denial as a difference of opinion. It’s not a difference of opinion. They are wrong.

The media, in its quest to appear impartial, gives racists, bigots, anti-vaxxers and climate change deniers a platform to promote their lies. The media is both-sides-ing this country to death.

I like “Grease 2” more than “Grease,” but you like “Grease” more than “Grease 2.” That’s a difference of opinion. Denying that science is a thing and claiming that vaccines cause autism or that climate change is a hoax is not a difference of opinion. That’s wrong.

I’m over it, my friends. You say this bullshit to me, I’m not going to pretend that we have a difference of opinion. I will tell you that you’re wrong.

That is all.

California’s new and ‘improved’ State Constitution

Yeah, so, I’m not going to get on my soapbox about the Prop. 8 vote … again.

Honestly, I just can’t wrap my head around it. According to the California Supreme Court, the majority is legally allowed to discriminate against the minority. So, I guess Article 1, Section 1 in the California State Constitution should be changed to say:

“All people are by nature free and independent and have inalienable rights unless they’ve got The Gay. …”

So anyway, last November after the conservative, ignorant dolts in this state passed Prop. 8 thereby stripping human beings of their rights, MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann offered an impassioned commentary that I think is worth re-sharing on this blog.

Yeah! What he said!
