Nanny State Indeed!!!
Roy’s post on Santorum’s proposed “war on porn” and Rightbloggers’ objections to said war, is full of win:
In fairness, we must say that many rightbloggers didn’t approve of Santorum’s porn crackdown — but not for the reason you might expect: They opposed it because cracking down on porn is, in their view, the liberal position.
Indeed, rightbloggers are forever attacking liberals with stories like “LIBERALS: ACLU Wants Porn in Prisons” and “Put sex in any vile cultural product and liberals applaud,” and putting out books like Porn Generation: How Social Liberalism is Corrupting Our Future.
Yeah, that seems weird to us, too. Liberals are notoriously pro-porn; why, just last week in the comments section to this column, we were repeatedly harangued by a troll yelling about liberals and their filthy porn.
Also, Obama has in fact called off the DOJ’s porn hounds, probably in order to weaken the nation’s moral fiber in preparation for a Muslim takeover. Republicans, on the other hand, sometimes require their own candidates (at both the local andnational level) to sign anti-porn pledges. And when they want to sink a Democratic jobs bill, they just stick an anti-porn clause to it, as they know Democrats are no more likely to support it than a vampire is likely to kiss a crucifix.
But when Santorum took an anti-porn position that, research suggests, would not go over well among red-state males, rightbloggers suddenly decided Big Government could take away their porn when they pried it from their warm, sticky fingers.
Good luck with this little crusade, Ricky. Might as well vow to take away everyones Iphones while you’re at it. I love how wingnuts rail about excessive government overreach, but then propose new laws (and with them a whole bunch of added costs to implement them) aimed at such pressing issues. I know that with: 9% unemployment, tension in Iran, eroding infrastructure, and increasing inequality, we mustn’t let these distractions take our eye off the balls!!! –Uncle Eb/John
