The liberals in this country are always crying and preaching about fairness and accepting others even, when they are different than you. But why is it that they are the first to attack and ostracize anyone who disagrees with their value system, what right do they have to do that? Repeatedly we have seen the left attack anyone who doesn’t agree with their ideas concerning so mant issues amonge them are gay marriage, abortion, entitlements, gun rights and so many others.
A Chick-fil-A vice-president was attacked just because he used his right to voice his religious beliefs concerning gays. He simply said that he supports “the biblical definition of the family unit”. He never said that he thought that gays were sub-human or that they should be banned from society. He never said that he would not hire gays. He never told any employee to treat gays any differently than heterosexuals. He and his company have always treated gays with respect. All he did was use his right to voice his opinion concerning his religion and what did the “tolerant left” do, they tried to make his employer go bankrupt. Everyone has the right to choose to buy their food or not. But what right does anyone have to try to bankrupt a company just because the owner has a religious view different than theirs?
I thought this country was founded on principles within our Constitution that included religious freedom and freedom of speech? How can we have those rights if we are attacked every time we exercise those rights? The only way those freedoms will ever work is by EVERYONE honoring them and tolerating the beliefs and views of others. S. Truett Cathy, the owner of Chick-fil-A shares his vice president’s views and he is entitled to his beliefs and he is entitled to voice them any time he wishes. It is also his right to do so. What right does anyone have to deprive him of that right?
The best thing that came out of the conflict with Chick Fil A was that it pole vaulted Chick Fil A to the number one chicken fast food retailer in the country. Chick Fil A only has some 1000 franchises and is open only 6 days a week compared to the number two chicken fast food retailer which has over 4000 franchises and is open 7 days a week. That’s right Chick Fil A now sells more chickens that KFC. The boycott of Chick Fil A backfired on the liberal left because it made the company even stronger.
It is true that the left has a right to voice their opinions as well as anyone, but they don’t stop there they take it a step further. They tried to destroy all the people with opposing views. That is not tolerance it is more like Totalitarianism. What right do they have to do that?
This isn’t an isolated incidence it has gone on for decades. Do you remember the recent news story about Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson? Not only was he attacked but they tried to kill his television show all because he voiced his religious beliefs. He also never attacked gay people he simply said that gay actions were against God’s wishes. He quoted Biblical scripture that totally supported his view. Phil’s problems started long before his famous interview. The liberal network tried everything they could to stop any prayers to be shown on the show. This was supposed to be a reality show about the Robertson family as they really are but the major part of what makes the Robertson family who they are is their religion. But their religion wasn’t considered an acceptable reality to be aired. Another words the network wanted to have only the reality that agreed with their idea of reality. What right did they have to do that? They had the right to edit the show anyway they chose but they didn’t have the right to change the Robertson family from what they are.
Even more recently Brendan Eich CEO and co-founder of Mozilla was forced to step down from his position because he actually donated $1000 to a political movement to stop gay marriage in California back in 2008. The liberals have successfully taken his job from him and made him a pariah. I’m sure their ugliness has rubbed off onto his personal life. Who would hire him now? How can he ever live a normal life again? What right do they have to destroy a person for making a donation to a political or charitable organization?
This sets a very dangerous precedent in America because it tells everyone that you better tow the “party line” or be ostracized. This is all done in the name of political correctness which is nothing more than censorship. Censorship is not a Constitutional value or right, nor is it even mentioned in the Constitution. Free speech and religious freedom are not only mentioned but they are both a Constitutional right. Therefore I have to ask, if you believe in the Constitution then what is more important, free speech and religious freedom or censorship? What right do they have to censor religious free speech?
How is it possible in America for censorship to rule over our Constitutional rights? The only answer to that question is that our Constitutional rights are being made null and void. How is this happening? It is happening because we allow it, by our silence. How many people were outraged by the fact that Constitutional rights were stomped into the ground by the liberals? Also how many people actually did something about it? How many people spoke out? How many people protested? How many people turned the tables on the OkCupid for urging their users to drop Mozilla? How many people dropped Mozilla after it dropped Brendan Eich? What rights do you exercise when you see injustices?
If the liberals want to play hard ball then we have to play hard ball with them, but at an even higher level. We must bring our “A” game, if we are going to have any chance of redeeming our Constitutional rights. If we don’t take a stand now, then when will we? If we had taken a stand decades ago when political correctness first raised its ugly head then we would not be in the mess we are in now. The longer we wait the bigger the ugly monster gets, soon it will be too big and powerful to stop.
Americans need a fire set under their lounge chairs or something like that to get them up off the sofa. We need a new Constitutional Revolution to force America back to the core values it was founded on. The liberal ideology that has creep into our laws and government houses needs to be purged and removed from our shores.
Are you willing to become a patriot who is willing to do whatever needs to be done to bring America back from the brink of the socialist abyss or are you just another couch potato who isn’t worth the time it takes to peel you off the sofa? You need to decide which one you are because it is up to you to make the move. It won’t make a difference if someone else has to peel you off the sofa.
As of this moment I am making a stand against this intolerance, I am taking the liberal approach and I am no longer using Mozilla Firefox as my web browser. It was my preferred browser but it is not part of my preferred ideology. Therefore they are no longer my preferred browser. Anyone who bows to the liberal blackmail is not a patriot and not a friend of the Constitution. Everyone should stop using any product that comes from a company that bows to the liberal extortion. If we want to make a difference then we have to do something different. Will you join me?
If we don’t have the right to voice and practice our religion then what right do we have to do anything?

I am a devout Constitutional conservative and Christian. My only degree is in life experiences, which comes from a lifetime of learning from life. I derived my education from being part of this great nation and that has given me more of an education than I could ever get from any text book. I love this country and everything it is supposed to stand for. I write to bring it back to its roots and to help stop the destruction that is coming to this country both morally and physically.
