towards anyone who doesn't celebrate this cause.
Obergefell represents the complete failure of American democracy and the illegitimate usurpation of law-making power by five unelected judges. But that isn't news, really - the Supreme Court has had that problem for a long time.
The news is all about the irrevocable decision that has been taken, to create a constitutional right to same-sex marriage.
It is a destructive and serious historical error, but history has indeed been made today. The Supreme Court has enshrined the views of one side of the marriage debate within the Constitution, thus making them virtually unassailable. Try taking back a constitutional right.
But the Supreme Court did something even more far-reaching: it created a new form of "racism". The majority decision leans heavily on the view that same-sex marriage is just like interracial marriage. The corollary conclusion, of course, is that anyone who opposes same-sex marriage is essentially no better than a racist who is motivated by mere animus.
How do we treat racists?
Now that everyone who opposes same-sex marriage has been officially categorized as a racist under the U.S. Constitution, a new era begins.
Before this day, the playing field was still level, and each side wielded leverage in its own ways. Each side was at least theoretically entitled to the same treatment in the media, in public forums, in professional life, and so on. Support for same-sex marriage was a matter that was still up for debate, and there was at least some recognition of the fact that reasonable people could disagree.
Expect all that to change. Racists are not worthy of any respect, or debate, or representation, or even of being heard. They ought to be silenced, rejected, pushed out, mocked, jeered, and personally and professionally destroyed. They are not entitled to "equal protection" in our society. They are the personification of evil and injustice, and as such, they are the "cockroaches" that must be exterminated.
That, in a nutshell, is a preview of what's coming next.
There will be no holds barred any more. With the Constitution in the palms of their hands, those who support gender ideology have all the sanction they need to give short shrift to proponents of traditional marriage, no apologies.
The darkness has descended upon America, and much of the world is being pulled into the shadows. Obergefell marks the fall of freedom and reason. This is a time of mass delusion, and totalitarianism is already knocking on the doors.
A personal taste of the future
Yesterday before the decision came out, I had a Twitter conversation with a man who wrote to me in response to one of my articles. Here is how the conversation went. Although it was just one exchange, I think it is very illustrative of the tone and treatment that we can expect:
@lea_singh your essay is nothing but a concession of total defeat. it's not only that we won, it is even more that you have been rejected.— Abe List (@abelisted) June 26, 2015
@lea_singh nail in your coffin was choosing incompetents like 33yo never-married virgin Ryan T Anderson as your spokesman. delicious.— Abe List (@abelisted) June 26, 2015
@abelisted No Abe, nail in our coffin was your successful campaign of instilling fear through shaming and ruining those who opposed you.— Lea Singh (@lea_singh) June 26, 2015
@lea_singh winning is the only thing. I'm legally married 10yrs, live in Beverly Hills, and will continue to fund cause of shaming bigots.— Abe List (@abelisted) June 26, 2015
@lea_singh Fat Maggie Gallagher? 33yo Never-Married Virgin Ryan Anderson? Buffoon Brian Brown? You? That's your A-team? No wonder you lost.— Abe List (@abelisted) June 26, 2015
@abelisted Are insults the only thing you've got? Do you judge the truth by its cover? Ghandi wasn't exactly GQ material either.— Lea Singh (@lea_singh) June 26, 2015
@lea_singh not the only thing, I also have your desperate, defensive and breathtakingly swift total defeat, plus your ignominy.— Abe List (@abelisted) June 26, 2015
@abelisted Don't forget defeat at SCOTUS is not reflective of public opinion. That, you have lost so far, my friend. https://t.co/hb20Qnsici— Lea Singh (@lea_singh) June 26, 2015
@lea_singh 57% of US in favor, incl 80% of millennials ie the future. plus Fortune 500, Wall St http://t.co/iuwN7QciAl your defeat is total.— Abe List (@abelisted) June 26, 2015
@lea_singh moreover I am not and never will be your friend.— Abe List (@abelisted) June 26, 2015
@abelisted Not quite "total" but yes, support is growing. Due to social psych, not to truth though. https://t.co/MC6uaVWve5— Lea Singh (@lea_singh) June 26, 2015
@lea_singh are you the genius who appointed 33yo never-married (but gay obsessed) virgin Ryan T Anderson as spokesman for marriage? lol.— Abe List (@abelisted) June 26, 2015
@abelisted You can lol, shame and insult, but how about reasoned discussion on the arguments. Don't see that much on your side.— Lea Singh (@lea_singh) June 26, 2015
@lea_singh why should i bother? i have nothing but contempt and disdain for you. my marriage doesn't affect you but here you are spouting.— Abe List (@abelisted) June 26, 2015
@abelisted I know you do. I don't have contempt for you. But your ideology does has massive effects for all society.— Lea Singh (@lea_singh) June 26, 2015
@lea_singh you're nothing but sub-fecal scum, an ugly girl embittered.— Abe List (@abelisted) June 26, 2015
@abelisted I see you went to Harvard. I did too. I don't talk like you though.— Lea Singh (@lea_singh) June 26, 2015
@lea_singh go change @AmericanPapist 's Obamacare diaper, he can't manage on his own and NOM fired him so he's broke. Run along.— Abe List (@abelisted) June 26, 2015
Abe wrote to me: I didn't seek him out. But clearly, he had only one motive here. Notice the mockery, gloating and insults. Notice the hate. Notice the refusal to engage in any kind of reasoned dialogue.
