Generation Chickenhawk: a look at The College Republicans
A must view video. Here’s the generation that will not sacrifice a damn thing in Dear Leader’s Big Military Misadventures — they want to let the poor do the fighting. These College Republicans have important work to do on the home front. Listen to all of the lame excuses why they just can’t serve (but they would if they could, you know).
Max Blumenthal takes us on a hilarious and shocking tour of the College Republican National Convention, where the GOP’s next generation cheer on the war in Iraq, then make sorry excuses for why they can’t serve. Also featuring Tom DeLay, brainwashed evangelical youth, and moving interpretive dance by Blumenthal.
The College Republicans also weigh in on LGBT rights. Man, if this is the future of America, the country is so in trouble. I had to transcribe some of the hilarity (with a few screenshots); it’s after the jump.
I don’t mind gays having regular privileges because they are citizens and all, but they should not receive special privileges above everyone else.
Sarah Billingham of Christian High School in St. Louis Missouri:
That’s not what we were made for. God didn’t create us to be gay.
Max Blumenthal: So it’s Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve…
[This then sends the above “priviliges” guy into a tizzy because it makes the young Republicans look like bigots, so he interjects…]
Young Republican: You didn’t have to say that…oh my goodness. Everyone at one time in their life has had an inclination towards the other…towards the same sex, but just because you have inclinations doesn’t mean you’re gay, because if you have inclinations you might be curious and stuff like that. If you accept it, then you just suppress your feelings and you pray about it to God and you know that you are not, you’re so much stronger as a person.
Max Blumenthal: So have you accepted it?
Young Republican: Yes, I have accepted it, I have prayed about it to God, and I know for a fact that I am not gay.
