DOMA daddy Knight scolds anyone who'll listen

by Jeremy Hooper

Robert Knight's latest piece is a doozy, stirring up the DOMA waters from all time.

First, he starts with pure silliness, comparing Newton's apple to Newt Gingrich's orange:

"It's a good thing Barack Obama is not in charge of defending the law of gravity, or we'd all be floating up to an airless death."

201103011359He then tells us why we should care what he thinks, connecting himself to DOMA's purest root:

"Allow me to take off the gloves. As one who helped draft the first version of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA)...

Before telling us what we now wants: The impeachment of the current president:

...I regard Obama's order on Feb. 23 to Attorney General Eric Holder to abandon DOMA's legal defense as lawless, reckless, arrogant and a violation of his oath of office. I think it is an impeachable offense."

He then extends the modern day over-the-toppiness, citing the waaaaay fringe Brian Camenker from the even more waaaaaaaay fringe MassResistance as a credible data source:

"If you doubt what they intend, check out Brian Camenker's shocking exposé, "What same-sex 'marriage' has done to Massachusetts." Mr. Camenker, who heads the group MassResistance, is warning the nation that there will be no quarter for those who think homosexuality is wrong and that marriage is the union of one man and one woman. Putting Catholic Charities out of the adoption business was just the beginning, followed quickly by brainwashing children in government schools and denying people jobs."

Robert also lies blame at the feet of those timidRepublicans not willing to go to Brian Camenkerville:

"Why do so many Republicans, when faced with brash evil, respond with concerns about timing or procedure? Where is Reagan when you need him?"

He also goes ad hominem, ascribing a "lunatic" label to equality activists:

"Marriage predates any known human government. It is not open to debate except where lunatics have taken over the asylum and can't see any difference between John and Mary tying the knot and John and Fred playing house."

In general, Robert Knight's piece is an indictment of every single person, right or left, who isn't willing to paint DOMA as a literal threat to civilization itself:

"By declaring his intention to allow radical judges to find a "right" to homosexual "marriage" in the U.S. Constitution, Barack Obama is pouring gasoline on a bonfire that is destroying the legal protections of marriage -- and civilization itself."

And again: This is all coming from a man who was in the room when the sh*tty law was drafted. IN. THE. ROOM.

Stick around, kids: This DOMA war is going to get good. And revelatory. And deliciously divisive on an internal level.
