It’s old news already, but it bugs me:
A bill that aims to expand the state’s film incentive program — an effort to attract jobs, which is likely to pass — would add language limiting a proposed 5 percent tax credit to productions that do not exhibit or imply “nontraditional family values.”
The bill’s sponsor, Representative Stephen L. Precourt, an Orlando Republican, told The Palm Beach Post that he wanted to encourage filmmaking akin to “The Andy Griffith Show.” On Tuesday, after declining requests to clarify what he meant, he released a statement denying that the new requirement for the tax break was in any way discriminatory.
John Stemberger, president of the Florida Family Policy Council, a conservative group that supports the bill, said that “traditional” means marriage between a man and a woman. He called the proposal “a brilliant idea” that was pro-family, not anti-gay.
If these two guys were cue-ball bald and they put their heads together, they’d make one shiny asshole, wouldn’t they?
For a while there, conservatives and libertarians railed against “social engineering,” accusing liberals of deploying laws and policies to bring about social change. It was, in their pious opinion, morally wrong, an abuse of big government to intrude upon individuals’ prerogatives and rights, political correctness run amuck.
Of course, that was then, when they didn’t approve of the agenda. This involves homuh-seshuals, so all bets are off.
Back then, the liberals wanted to ram their agenda down our throats because (they said) it was morally correct. As obnoxious, sanctimonious, and off-putting as they were, at least they were upfront about it.
These two lying sacks of shit slaughter logic and slime the English language. The bill’s sponsor actually denies this clause is discriminatory. The Council President says it’s “not anti-gay, “ but “pro-family.” These two jokers don’t have the courage to claim moral authority for their brand of social engineering, they talk in code and sneak around it. Nutless invertebrates, they make garden variety liberals look like Viking warriors.
I guess for them the appeal of Andy Griffith was Don Knotts.
