Quote# 84882

If look at history from the mid-1960s, we’ve gone from a request for toleration to an imposition of intolerance. We’ve gone from a request to understand others to a determination to close down those who hold traditional values.
I think that we need to be very aggressive and very direct. The degree to which the left is prepared to impose intolerance and to drive out of existence traditional religion is a mortal threat to our civilization and deserves to be taken head on and described as what it is which the use of government to repress the American people against their own values.

Intolerance? Are you fucked in the head? Oh, wait, it's Newt Gingrich, of course you are. We've been doing nothing but trying to encourage tolerance of others. If it means you can no longer pick on the gay minority, it's not intolerant any more than stopping a school yard bully from punching nerds is intolerant.

Why should I take a guy named after an amphibian seriously?

"Why should I take a guy named after an amphibian seriously?"

...on the other hand, I'd vote for someone named Axolotl* GaribaldiNice**, even if he was a candidate for the Official Monster Raving Loony Party:

At least they're not right-wing. Politically, they're leaning more towards the tailplane. X3

*- Because 'Axolotl' is a nice, 'crunchy' word, I find. Also, Axolotls look cute. :3

**- A biscuit reference: Ging(er Nuts)rich (Tea).

The greatest arch-conservative we had in this country, up until 1980s with the coming of Ronald Reagan, was a man named Barry Goldwater.

Barry Goldwater was pro-choice, had no problem with gays serving openly in the military, and was gravely concerned with the rise of the Religious Right, stating that if they ever took over the Republican Party as they were trying to start to do during his time, it would be the end of politics in America.

That's what a real conservative sounds like, to me. Gingrich and his ilk are not conservatives -- conservatives aim to conserve society as it is in the face of radical changes. These people aren't trying to conserve anything. No, they are Radical Christianists (there's nothing actually "Christian" about them) who want to fundamentally change this country into something that it has never been. These people should scare any rational person.

"Barry Goldwater"

Similarly here in the UK, Edward Heath was the last true Conservative; was single all his life, brought this country into the EU, and never made secret his utter distate for the Antichrist Maggie Thatcher (*spit*) and her country-damaging policies.

He was the only Conservative I would've shaken by the hand (those today, I wouldn't piss on 'em if they were on fire; but I'd go to the nearest place possible which sold lighter fluid/turpentine/kerosene to help thing along...! >:D ).

I have a bottle of champagne (which I won in a charity raffle a few years ago) in the fridge, that I'm saving for a special occasion. Either:

A- The glorious day when Fred Phelps finally carks it, removing his inferior subhuman self from this world, putting himself out of our misery.

B- The Antichrist Maggie Thatcher (*spit*) removes her sorry existence from our reality; hopefully her end being more than infinitely painful.

Either way, I shall celebrate.

Oh, I personally wouldn't waste good champagne on the likes of Phelps. Even most dyed-in-the-wool conservatives here in the US hate him. I've got more influence than that guy and I'm a nobody. When he's gone I plan to enjoy a moderately-priced cigar (certainly not a Cuban) lit from the embers of the hellfire that will keep him warm for the rest of eternity -- but that's primarily because I'm always up for a decent smoke.

I suppose, however, that it would certainly be cause to celebrate once ol' Maggie kicks the bucket. Be sure to follow up your celebration of her parting from this mortal coil with a rousing chorus of "Ding-Dong the Witch is Dead"!

The intellectual giant of the right, ladies and gentleman.

I swear I have never heard him say something that wasn't either demonstrably wrong or fucking retarded.

Barry Goldwater would be denounced as a communist by today's GOP.

I love how the names in the american polotical system have been flipped around. Whenever someone says "keeping goverment out of my life is a CONSERVATIVE principle" I laugh. Then I prove that they are a liberal and they ragequit

Nobody is imposing toleration. Opressing others was never in the list of God-giving rights, to begin with. Wonder if you would repeat that in Iran, for example.

If you look at the history from the mid-1960s you'll see idiots spewing the same bullshit as you are today.
