But that would have required specificity instead of disconnected, free-floating paranoia, and Beck might have been (shudder) called out for faulty data.
Yet he has the nerve to claim that liberals can't stand up to debate.
Preaching to choir here. I know. Except, I guess, that it's really venting to the choir.
Who is attacking his marriage? And what exactly does he need others to defend? His right to practice his religion in his home or church? Oh wait, he can do that freely. So maybe his right to force that religion on other legislatively? Or eliminate access to birth control and emergency contraception for himself/his wife/everyone else? His right to ban abortion for his wife and all women? Or his right to force women to have undergo a transvaginal ultrasound in order to get one? I wish he could articulate the actual reasons his marriage or his rights need defending. But he can't because he's full of shit and the only defense needed here is for everyone else who is at risk of or being oppressed by the beliefs of him and others like him.
Actually blip, they are totally tokens; you don't exchange them so much as line them up on the moral high ground so that everyone in the arcade can tell you're going to be playing "I am not a bigot, see" until you set a high score.
I was about to ask if anybody had any idea what he was actually trying to say, but I think you nailed it.
Except the one with "karma." That at least *sounds* like it would be fair and kinda make sense. Nice idea, anyway. Which one is that, Buddhism? I'll give Buddhism an honorable mention.
Rights and beliefs aren't the same.
But then he complains that liberals won't stand up for his beliefs. Why wouldn't they if he believes gay marriage is fine?
And when people repeatedly mention how much they don't care about something it means they do care and they have an agenda and a (varyingly) sophisticated set of rhetorical devices they're about to unleash.
I don't care about peanut butter* but generally speaking chunkiness is gross**, and when someone who, like me, loves peanut butter won't defend my abhorrence of chunkiness, I'm deeply offended, except I don't care,...
* I have gay friends - I think I'm playing soccer with them tomorrow night.
** It's an abomination before the Lord, (not that I care).
What belief? What the fuck is he talking about?
Oh, wasn't he that guy that got on TV who was struck down awhile ago...his empire in ruins and magic ring of power missing? Did someone find that ring? Is it a decoder ring? Will it make sense of what he's saying?
