Funny thing...

I'm reading a bunch of right wing goofballs saying that objections to the Cordoba mosque aren't about the restriction of religious freedom but rather about respecting the discomfort and anguish we still feel about the 9/11 bombings. Odd, then that when blacks complain about the discomfort caused by flying the Confederate flag, they're told to grow a thicker skin. (Of course, the analogy falls apart since the Confederacy was actually about trying to retain the right to keep slaves, and Sufism <> Wahabism, but whatever. I refudiated the original point, so there.)

Similarly, in Perry v. Schwartzetc, if the argument is that objections to Walkers ruling are rooted not in bigotry, but in disagreement with a judge's ability to overrule state level legislation, would you like to revisit Heller? Yeah, didn't think so.
