By now you have heard that Brewer has vetoed the Arizona Jim Crow gay-bashing law:
After days of protests and criticism levied against her state, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R) said on Wednesday that she vetoed SB 1062, which would have effectively legalized discrimination based on religious grounds.
Brewer said she had not heard of one example of religious freedoms being attacked without the bill, considered it broadly worded, and did not address any specific concerns.
She further said that SB 1062 “has the potential to create more problems than it purports to solve” and would be divisive “to a degree that no one would ever want.”
Brewer was reportedly in emergency meetings earlier in the day concerning the bill, which was passed by the GOP-dominated state legislature earlier this month, prompting not only objections by residents, businesses, and fellow Republicans, but threats of a boycott from prominent actor and activist George Takei and the prospects of the National Football League moving the Super Bowl out of the state in response.
At some point they will learn.
Actually, no, they won’t. I was burned once before with my peak wingnut speculation, and they won’t learn. Clowns like this asshole are just going to have to all drop dead, and the next generation will have fewer bigots, and the subsequent generation will have fewer, although by then we will have figured out someone else who is acceptable for the time being to abuse. The only thing that is going to change things is for these octogenarian bigots to die off.
Also, depressingly enough, the only thing that for now will keep these bigoted scumbags in line is their beloved free market, which has actually figured out that the LGBT community spends money like everyone else, and they have a lot of straight friends. Other than that, I see nothing keeping the new Confederacy trying to keep pulling this bullshit. I mean, what else can you think about these people?
Demographic changes are our only hope.
