With the election over, Linda Valdez has a new drum to beat

The Arizona Republic’s Queen of Left-lurching has outdone herself this morning. In an editorial that began on the high note of congratulating President-elect Barack Obama’s historic victory, it took a mere three paragraphs before she lapsed into her real agenda of the day: Berating the voters for approving Proposition 102.  The Marriage Amendment passed easily by a 56.2 – 43.8  margin. That’s 1,135,604 votes to 884,597, Linda.

The proposition, is the constitutional amendment which easily won widespread support, with these twenty words: Only a union of one man and one woman shall be valid or recognized as a marriage in this state. Arizona citizens saw this as a necessary protection against a future liberal legislature or an activist judge, such as we have witnessed in California.

Linda Valdez, should be basking in the glory of seeing her Democrat politician, Barack Obama, a man with a slim resume and decidedly liberal agenda, win the nation’s top honor. Instead, she has moved on to her newest theme, that of promoting homosexuality as a “civil rights” issue.

Sorry, but that doesn’t fly. One relates to melanin pigmentation in the skin, while acting on the other is a choice. Sexual orientation is not a civil right.  Homosexual activists, in fact, represent one of the most powerful lobbies per capita in the country. Mychal Massie, chairman of the National Leadership Network of Black Conservatives-Project 21, addresses the subject of equating the two issues in this cogent article, Homosexuality is not a civil right.

And on the election outcome and racial undertones, OneNewsNow, runs this analysis.

    Valdez is a typical liberal, unable to take pleasure in the goals they attain. There is always another issue to ram down the throats of their fellow Americans — always another leftist hill to climb.

  2. Chuck says:

    Mychal Massie’s article is a well reasoned piece that sets the “civil rights” aspect straight. This should be read by each and every person who has any doubts about this important issue and the way it has been repackaged and manipulated.

  3. John Q. Public says:

    Valdez is running with her agenda as long as the ship of Republic stays afloat. The newspaper has already enacted numerous staff cuts and the size of the newspaper is skeletal. The pages are physically smaller and the content is compressed down to the fewest sheets possible. It has become a joke. The East Valley Tribune is now only printed four days a week. The Christian Science Monitor has gone entirely Internet. Other national papers are disappearing entirely. If the Republic was rational, the ownership would recognize the need to make an effort to be more responsive to its readers or it will soon be history, too. It’s evident they don’t care.

    Homosexuals have eqaua rights, they can marry a person of the opposite sex as can every heterosexual. They want to redefine marriage. Different deal. Marriage is imbeded in human nature as man woman and maybe a child.
