Rubin Navarrette can kiss my gay a*s

Ruben Navarrette recently posted an opinion piece on CNN suggesting that including legal protections for gays and lesbians in the immigration reform package was really just a clever way for opponents of reform to kill the bill. Until I read Mr. Navarrette's long winded justification for discriminating against the LGTB community I was a supporter of reform.

Not so much now.

Excluding a specific group of people from legal protections that are being offered to everyone else in order to get what you want for a group you favor is prejudice no matter how eloquent your defense of that discrimination may be.

"Adios, immigration reform" works just fine for me Mr. Navarrette.

Bottom line, no inclusion, no support and Mr. Navarrette can blame his own bigotry for that change of heart.

Below is a link to the article on CNN and the comment I left....

www.cnn.com/2013/05/10/opinion/navarrette-imm...

Ruben Navarrette can kiss my gay a*s.

"...The votes will vanish. And so, for the sake of the estimated 40,000 same-sex couples that would be affected by such an obscure change, an estimated 11 million people will be out of luck. Adios, immigration reform."

So now we're willing to look the other way and pass one more law that discriminates against gay people just for the sake of what...immigration reform?

Undocumented immigrants get a green card and a path toward citizenship and gays get thrown under the bus one more time?

Do the right thing. Put the amendment in, fight to get the bill passed and if you fail at least you didn't sell your soul for some hollow, morally bankrupt "victory".

I'm tired of LGTB equality being something progressives only support when there's no cost and no risk to what they believe is "really" important.

Do the right thing Ruben, support equality for everyone or admit that you're just as big a bigot as the people you've made a career out of complaining about.

Well, except for the "get a clue" part...thanks.

No, I haven't read much his stuff and from what I found on that page it looks like I haven't missed much.

Not sure why, but I thought he leaned more to the left.

Thanks for that link.

That "get a clue" thingy was just a bad imitation of Velma Dinkley. I probably should have wrote "Jinkies!" instead. I tend to forget that the people I'm talking to are not watching the same thing on T.V. as I am. jejeje

Namaste Primo! I pray all is well on that side of the hood. All is well here. The kids came back from school for the summer. I'm not sure how I feel about that yet. LOL! I got used to the quiet empty nest.
This is the first time I watch that video.., Ojala Que Llueva Cafe a'la Ranchera. LOL!
But V, why the hell is Rubén wearing a plaid skirt?
Oh you know you love having the kids around the house Mail, who do you think you're talking to? LOL!
As far as that plaid skirt goes, good question, I'm going to have to do a little research.....He could be a Scottish Mexican you know, or perhaps he prefers to hang loose...LOL!

Do it bro! Go back to school. The worse that can happen is that you learn something useless. LOL!
Go for it bro. The best that can happen is that you stumble into a provocative lecture that validates what we already know. LOL!
Seriously, if not for professional development - do it for intellectual curiosity's sake. It will impress your kids.
Im going to do it Mail, I'm going to check out curriculum at PCC, short for Pasadena City College, it's the nearest college around, and the cheapeast too, I'm considering some courses in World History and photography, it'll be hard to find the time but I think I can do it.
Thanks for the advice Primo, I've actually been wanting to do this for a long time.
