Investors Business Daily is a piece of shit

The Invesotors Business Daily posted this article about the Boy Scouts discriminatory practices anonymously (without any byline that I could find.)

But the Boy Scouts, who require a belief in God and therefore also “discriminate” against atheists, are not comfortable with the idea of openly homosexual men leading young boys into the woods.”

Hmm, why the quotes around “discriminate”? eh?

What does discriminate mean?

Definitions of discriminate on the Web:

  • recognize or perceive the difference
  • marked by the ability to see or make fine distinctions; “discriminate judgments”; “discriminate people”
  • treat differently on the basis of sex or race
  • distinguish; “I could not discriminate the different tastes in this complicated dish”
  • noting distinctions with nicety; “a discriminating interior designer”; “a nice sense of color”; “a nice point in the argument”

So, why the scorn quotes rround “discriminate”, Investors Business Daily? And why the anonymous author? Could it be because you’re all pieces of shit?

And they write more, of course:

If America is about anything, it’s about the right to hold beliefs and views with which others disagree, the right to express and act on those views, and the right to freely associate with others holding similar views. That’s not bigotry; it’s true diversity.”

Fine. But that doesn’t mean groups which discriminate get preferential treatment from the government, for example, $1 a month rent on a $200000 a month facility. According to Investors Business Daily, the Boy Scouts dont’ discriminate, despite that they do not allow gay or atheist members, and should be allowed to have preferential treatment in the form of a token $1 per month rent bill instead of the $200,000 fair market value. What are you guys at IBD, a bunch of communists?

Investors Business Daily is, if this article is their opinion, a bunch of DISHONEST LYING SACKS OF SHIT. They try to spin the issue away from the Boy Scouts discriminatory practices and try to portray it as Big Government squashing the poor Boy Scouts. No, it’s Big Government simply deciding not to subsidize an organization which discriminates against people on the basis of religion and/or sexual orientation. Get a fucking brain, you morons at IBD. Better yet, shoot the brain you have with the guns you undoubtedly own after pasting your NRA membership card onto your forehead, until it quits working entirely, or, if as it seems, your brain has already quit working, shoot it anyway.
