‘Given Sandy Hook, you have to make reasonable compromises’
In exchange, gay men should make reasonable compromises over Penn State.
They will simply have to accept being registered and kept a safe distance from children.
This isn’t a violation of their rights. It’s just common sense. The public has a right to know.
It highlights the fallacy of the old media/left propagated concept of the political spectrum. It demonstrates how most who have been branded “the right” are in fact libertarian in social matters as well as financial ideology. (…)
It is the so called “right” who now champion free markets, free speech, absolute equality and individual freedom. They have, in essence taken the roll of the paleo liberal and much of the old line progressive. It is the left who champion restricting individual freedoms, building monopolies and the new civil injustice in the form of using the state to silence dissent.
Which leaves us to accurately assess who or what we are facing across the culture war battlefield? They are certainly NOT liberal or progressive – unless you consider civil/social hypocrisy “progressive” and reactionary draconian statism to be “liberal”.
It is time we defined and labeled the new intolerance and destructive authoritarianism which has taken the place of the old liberal and social democrats – it is in fact some new kind of liberty/equality-hating intolerant statism.
We must accurately define this new enemy and make it abundantly clear that they have thrown both liberalism and civil social democracy under the bus.
