My Mistake

I just removed a rather harsh post that was based on this article.   New evidence shows that the real crime was to compound one stupid on top of another. Thanks to a commenter at Cowgirls place for reporting that it was just a hype. Hype or not, discrimination and violence are unacceptable methods of expression.

It is true that our sole Congressperson, Denny Rehberg, has been using his power and his expression to prevent the re-authorization of the Violence Against Women Act VAWA because he does not want the VAWA to extend protections to tribal Indians or the lesbian gay trans-gendered bi-sexual LGBT community.  

 Rehberg's misuse of power is simply unacceptable.  Please vote for Jon Tester so that Denny can go home and learn how to get along without bullying anyone.

At no point ... (0.00 / 0)
would I tell you at all how to blog.  This is just my opinion, but I think you should have left the other post up, with a update.  And at no point are you responsible for admitting your mistake.  You didn't make one.  Joseph Baken did.

His mistake did more damage than can be counted here.  Going into the future, any time Ellie Hill or other concerned politician calls for the very needed protection of GBLT people, they will be countered with the ridiculous fallacy of "Yeah, but, that one guy lied!"

The lesbian couple in Missoula whose home was burned down because they wanted the same health benefits afforded to any hetero couple didn't lie.  The dozens of people in Missoula and other Montana towns who are beaten or have their property destroyed by the ignorant are not lying. But I'll just bet that Dennis Rehburg will belly up to any bar in the state and feed the hate by telling jokes about how that one guy lied.

Thanks Rob, (0.00 / 0)
That would have been a better way to do it.  I was trying to put the first post back in draft form and have it only be available to people who were looking for it and I goofed it.

live and learn,I guess.

Pretty sure the lesbian couple did lie... (0.00 / 0)

The lesbian couple did lie, according to experts.


Although never proven, I'm 98% sure it was a lie.  Just as I knew Baken was lying.  I was attacked for saying so until the truth came out.


Constructing elaborate lies to garner sympathy for a cause is destructive to the cause because sooner or later, the truth will come out.  

Hi Andy, (0.00 / 0)
I am sure that some people do lie, and others make mistakes about all kinds of things, but I know that people are belittled, bullied and even beaten because who they are makes other people uncomfortable.  

It is simply not okay to belittle, bully or beat someone for any reason, even if they make us uncomfortable.  I said us because I am no angel myself, but one or two or a hundred liars would not change the fact that it is simply not acceptable behavior.  Period.
