If you think he is a bigot, I am in good company.
Keep calling us names... it makes our case for us.
Look at all the names they called Scott Brown....ooops... excuse me, I mean SENATOR Scott Brown!
My post is about a California State law, not the Mid-West.
My post does not, actually, express my opinion about same-sex marriage.
My post is about a mayor who is trying to keep a law-abiding citizen from continuing in his 30+ year seat on a non-profit theatre board because he made a legal contribution to a political campaign (a campaign that won the majority of votes in this state and 38% of the vote in his county).
If you equate my post and same sex marriage with sharia law and the barbaric practices contained there-in, then I think it says much more about you than it does about the "rednecks" you decry.
Although, I don't know if he would really quarrel with my take. I said Mamet wants to expose this world. I did not say the play is meant to destroy it or to force any pat conclusions about it. Although, I do believe that as we continue to talk about, expose and discuss the insidious and stifling nature of political correctness it will die the death it deserves.
The point of my piece is to praise this play for bringing so much out on the table in such a frank way. How the rape mystery resolves and what conclusions the audience may or may not draw from that resolution does nothing to lessen the importance of this play and Mamet's courage in presenting it.
Also, I have many friends that believe the ending was not quite as conclusive as Mr. Stein believes it is. To me the play ends with enough "reasonable doubt" to allow everyone in the audience to reach their own conclusion.
This is an opportunity to SHOW the compassion and caring that conservatives feel.
This is an opportunity to actually DO something to help and not just preach about it.
This is also an opportunity to make an emotional investment in a story, in a people, who have desperately suffered under quasi=Marxist totalitarian rule while the left in our country have encouraged it.
Let us help these people, and then, let us engage in a real and open discussion about our failed policies of the past, and our new investment in Haiti's future. How America can be a light to these people and we can USE our influence to encourage a free, open and democratic society.
dcase: You know me and my fellow contributors here at the Big Blogs well enough to know that after this physical and emotional investment we will not sit idly by and let this administration return to the Marxist-apologist policies of the past.
There will be time enough for politics in the ensuing weeks. Let us SHOW what we Americans can really do. Let us SHOW the compassion and caring that we conservatives have. Let us help these people now and let us then correct the policies that helped create this situation.
