…is that it’s a legacy of whiny wet blankets fucking it up for everyone else.
I’m borrowing a friend’s “intro to basic American Law”-type textbook, and it’s just amazing…it’s like every legal precedent that we have was set by some solitary butt-hurt whiner that couldn’t just go along with what the majority of society clearly prefers. We’re talking page after page of black-and-white pictures of self-righteous, scowling jehova’s witnesses, mormons, athiests, and other similarly marginal people that suddenly decided that their personal, singular hypersensitivity or proclivity should dictate what the overwhelming majority of mainstream society holds in law. Total fucking bullshit, and anti-Democracy.
Just because some marginal weirdo decided to get their panties in a twist because people were saying a prayer before the big football game, or pledging allegiance in the classroom, or having “Under God” on an official document, or whatever…we have a big fucking trial and now mainstream, middle-of-the-road society can’t do what it overwhelmingly wants to do because of that scowling asshole.
Congratulations, party-pooper! You get your picture in the law textbook, officiously frowning with your ugly kids, and now the rest of society bends over backwards to capitulate to and accommodate your marginal opinion.
