The Colbert Report‘s Stephen Colbert is very impressed with Oklahoma’s governor Mary Fallin (R-OK), who is so opposed to sex-same marriage that she’s stopped all state-owned National Guard facilities from processing any marriages for members of the military.

“Governor Fallin is setting a great precedent here,” he said. “Rather than providing any services for gay people, the government should refuse to provide them for everyone.”

In order to prevent gay people getting their “gay” all over things, he thinks we should shut down the fire department, schools and the military. But even that probably wouldn’t be good enough to ensure that Oklahoma remains Okla-hetero.

“Governor Fallin, I’ve heard that gay people in your state enjoy the scent of your state flower, the Oklahoma rose, just as much as straight people do. So you should order everyone in your state to cut off their nose to spite the gays — because you’re kind of doing it already.”

  • Socialism is Organized Evil

    Although the notion of uniformity may appear to align with democratic processes, it actually erodes our recognition of individual value.

    This was one of his best.

    The collectivist tendencies imported by Stuart Chase are, in all essentials, the German definition of socialism offered by Werner Sombart when he described socialism as a regulated, planned, and controlled system.

      Partner, you must be a genius because I’m a fairly bright guy and I haven’t got a frickin’ clue as to what you’re on about…

        I agree with you. I link to think I have better than average intelligence, so I googled the two names. Werner Sombart was a German economist and sociologist who was a Marxist, he died in 1941. Stuart Chase was an American economist, educated at MIT, who appears to have made numerous quotes that appear on a website named brainy quotes. Not sure what any of the three comments before your’s have to do with the Colbert video.

          Thanks for the sanity check, Bro. I was beginning to think I was becoming “confused” in my old age.

  • Liberalism is Nonsense

    Even though the concepts of cultural evolution and biological evolution share similarities, there are important differences between them.

    “…she’s stopped all state-owned National Guard facilities from processing any marriages for members of the military.”

    I wonder if the federal owned National Guard facilities can process marriages. And what does it matter who owns the building?
