It has more to do with thought police. When we have a people preaching about how the LGBT community should be permitted to marry, and anyone who disagrees with them is wrong and publicly vilified, that’s inappropriate. It today’s society, if you are a white middle class heterosexual male, you are instantly guilty of: - Sexism- Racism- Homophobia- Oppression- Bigotry- etcWhat makes my opinion any less valid than the next person’s? Why is my expression of support of traditional marriage being deemed hate speech, but when the LGBT community barks about how wrong we are, it’s considered socially acceptable? It’s the double standard that is the issue. We can be called whitey, crackers, etc. But if we even utter the term “black” we are racist. Everyone is allowed to use every epitaph known to man in a demeaning manner towards us, but if we use anything other than “approved words” to describe others we are bigots. It’s crap. And when set against the backdrop of this Ferguson case where the large individual assaulted a police officer, charged him and the autopsy confirms it, people still think there’s some vast conspiracy to oppress (insert group here). And those in the media pander to their base to try to rile them up so they can get more headlines. And idiots like Sharpton and Jackson thrive on this kind of conflict. We need a new MLK Jr. We need someone to preach to the masses to exercise calm, and come together as a people instead of trying to find a way to divide us. And stirring the pot in an attempt to exact “social justice” doesn’t accomplish that. All it does is continue to drive a wedge. And that’s what we are seeing in Ferguson.
