Nonsense. In any case, though, Farrakhan is hardly relevant to this thread (to the extent that anything is relevant to this thread).

Farrakhan recently "helped" Rahm Emanuel. And Ted Nugent recently "helped" Tommy Thompson. Inasmuch as the theme of this thread is government as bully, i.e., fascist, and Rahm Emanuel, as mayor of Chicago, recently acted as a bully, Farrakhan - a known Jew hater and gay hater - gets drawn in.

So let's see if I understand what you're saying. Ted Nugent appearing at a political rally to support Tommy Thompson is the same as Louis Farrakhan providing members of the Fruit of Islam to patrol an area of Chicago that has had a 40% rise in murders in the last year. Therefore, Farrakhan is a leftist.

Or maybe your point is this: In the case of Chik-Fil-A, Emmanuel is putting politics (social justice for gay people) over practicality (profits for Chik-Fil-A), which is bad, but in the case of Farrakhan, Emmanual is putting practicality (safety for Chicago citizens) over politics (Farrakhan's history of anti-semitism), which is bad.

Or maybe your point is that Rahm Emmanuel is a hypocrite, in which case I seem to remember you never answering why you condemned pro-Recall leaflets in Madison containing voting information on individuals, but you didn't say anything about anti-Recall leaflets in Janesville that included salary information and the recall petition signature information on individuals.

Are the same people supporting Chick-fil-A fighting to make divorce illegal when not done according to the Bible? Are they using their faith to justify their undue superiority over those who get divorced merely for personal reasons?

You see, you may not agree with someone’s decision to get divorced, but you recognize their right to it.

And this is not to say that divorce and homosexuality are the same thing. One is a choice (divorce) the other is most clearly not (homosexuality). So imagine denying someone a right you hold dear because of factors completely out of their control…

That is bigoted. It's also hypocritical, because the rules for divorce are very clearly defined in the Bible, yet are rarely adhered to. For "Christians" in this country to speak out so strongly about the breakdown of the family in regards to gay marriage and not divorce shows their hypocritical and bigoted view of the issue.

or to the extent that this thread is relevant to anything except as an example of reverse psychology: Chick-Fill-A's owner's fascist statements provoked a reaction, so they attack the reaction rather than look at the reason for it.

Actually, I really do. The mainstream leftist drive by media editing to make him fit their projection, all the while the pig eric holder's new black panther party putting a 10K bounty on him, not to mention that the racist piglet--the lil guy with the big mouth and glasses---tweeting out his home address?
yeah, nothing to see here....

BTW, I'm just kidding about eric holder and spikie being pigs.
I'd never insult pigs like that ya know.

I'll say "mothership" farrakan is a pig. Wait, he can't be pig can he? Does he eat pork? Hot dogs? He dresses too slick to be a pig.
I heard him speak one time at the UW madison. Yeah, all that crisco in his hair, he's not a pig. He is clearly racist. He kept talking about the "blue eyed people" in a derogatory manner.
I did get a kick out of his silent women in their brown tarps, or burkas.

What's wrong with nugent?

Coming from someone as nonpartisan as yourself, that really hurts :cry:
