I love the coded language that the GOP uses to TRY to hide bigotry.
Gee, she doesn’t have “Heartland Values”. Really? Iowa has gay marriage, they seem pretty “Heartland” to me.
Apparently he would have attacked abolitionists for not having good Confederate Values.
These people and their actual moral values. The GOP absolutely hates those because they have a lot less than none and suck like leeches the morals and values out of every conservative.
@Cam: Agreed – I love how the treadmill of cultural euphemisms has turned again to accommodate bigots in our relatively more tolerant times. Gotta love how versatile a tool language is. Values, family, morals, traditional – I’m starting to loathe these words. The media needs to call them out for what they are: code for “fags and dykes are icky and should be further marginalized on the basis of my mythical beliefs.” It’s impossible to have an honest conversation with these Newspeakers. They’ve reframed gay rights discourse because they realize on some level how untenable their position is: “We don’t hate gay marriage, we just support traditional marriage.” I don’t even know how to respond to such a nonsensical proposition.
IT’s our job to call them out when they use words like values, morals and such. These are code words and we all know what they are about. When you call them out on it, they quickly scurry away.
