    The fact that they are even comparing it to the US tea party movement is beyond despicable.

    And the last sentence of the article:

    "Saudi Arabia is currently considering a law for women to cover up their eyes if they are deemed too "tempting."

    The things we let some of our allies get away with, the justifications we use to go to war with other countries.

    It would also greatly increase the number of traffic accidents, and decrease the number of sandwiches.

    “It isn’t that some gay will get some rights. It’s that everyone else in our state will lose rights. For instance, parents will lose the right to protect and direct the upbringing of their children. Because our K-12 public school system, of which ninety per cent of all youth are in the public school system, they will be required to learn that homosexuality is normal, equal and perhaps you should try it. And that will occur immediately, that all schools will begin teaching homosexuality.” – Senator Michele Bachmann, on what will happen if her same-sex marriage ban amendment fails to pass in 2004, appearing as guest on radio program “Prophetic Views Behind The News,” hosted by Jan Markell, KKMS 980-AM, March 6, 2004

    I don't think it's despicable. I think it's entirely apt.


    How are tea party positions even remotely close to that? One's emphasis is on the debt and the other is totally about authoritarian rule depriving citizens of any kind of basic rights.

    So then why is so much effort put into their anti-gay and anti-choice crap?
