I'm super, thanks for asking

It's an unfortunate fact of the gun rights community that, along with the folks who care passionately about liberty, we also have a handful of people who love authoritarianism as long as it only oppresses the choices they don't like.

Case in point. Uncle points out the historical context shared by segregationists, gun controllers, and anti-gay advocates. The internet belched this back:

And a funny thing happened on the way to our new Gay States of America: As the vote on Prop 8 in California showed, most brown and black members of the Rainbow Coalition are not terribly fond of the idea of gay marriage in particular and homosexuality in general.

Buddy, respecting gay Americans' right to marry doesn't make us the Gay States of America any more than respecting your right to speak makes us the Asshole States of America.


  1. I'm a proud asshole-american - how dare you isult my ancestors!

  2. Hey, hey, I just said it wasn't _why_ we're the ASA. By any measure, stealing a guy's tea and dumping it in a harbor is pretty assholey. ;)
