Entertaining, if It Wasn’t Pathetic
Goodwill towards men and women “… regardless of … gender (preference) …” ? A simple lesson in genetics – just because one has a particular sexual preference does not change that person’s gender. I thought only God (or a good surgeon) were the only ones that could change genders hence the noting of a preference is patronizing to say the least. Regardless, when people go out of their way to be politically correct, rest assured that the last thing they care about is the people and beliefs that they are endearing. Such zeitgeist nonsense is equivalent to the bigot that proclaims “yeah, some of my best friends are spics and niggers”. Etymology 101 – goodwill towards all men suffices because “men” means all of humanity.
Goodwill towards men and women regardless of political leaning? Really? So can one infer that this group will stop advocating the shooting of those with different political leanings? Or will it finally honor its public assertion to allow the chairman of the recall committee to address this group? Or better yet, will this group, so as to buttress their public proclamation, make a public apology for such criminal behavior of their members?
Goodwill towards men and women regardless of political leaning? Really? Oh, as opposed to the attempt to squelch the free speech of those that this group did not agree with under the ruse of the ill-fated pitiable “civility referendum”. The thought process of this group, as if it has any, is as if we all have succumbed to the high concentration of alum in the city drinking water and therefore can’t recall anything farther back than the previous paragraph.
Goodwill towards men and women regardless of national origin? Really? So can one infer that this group will stop advocating the denigration of minorities through the use racial slurs? Or better yet, will this group, so as to buttress their public proclamation, make a public apology for such racist behavior of their members?
The irony that has escaped no one except this group is that the newspaper printing this “letter” is the very same paper that the group pressured to have a reporter fired because the group did not like the reporting. Not that the reporting was wrong or biased, mind you. Apparently the “goodwill” does not extend to people that the group doesn’t agree with. And by the way, isn’t wanting someone fired antithetical to the tenet of goodwill? So, will this group make a public apology to the hard working honest man at the newspaper that they unsuccessfully tried to have fired?
Without the public apologies, the letter to the paper is but yet another disingenuous and sanctimonious publicity stunt. Which of course has backfired.
And then, so as to prove that there is a god, or that someone at the newspaper has an extraordinary sense of humor, immediately next to this inane letter there is a letter from a local citizen that for all intents and purposes describes this group as something akin to a bunch of third-rate actors in a German beer hall circa 1939. Don’t think so? Check out the video of this group on this very same blog.
Therefore, what we can really look forward to in 2007, sans the above noted apologies that assuredly will come right after the city manager and the some of the city council members cease their association with this group, is more droll entertainment from this crowd. A plea to the 20 or so members of this group: please keep paying your dues, for the comic relief is better than any other entertainment on Marco.
