I have never been so scared in my life. I truly believe that if we let the Republicans take over in power that gay people will slowly, but surely, be locked up in jail. These far right wing people – who spread hate and fear – will gain power and change the laws that allow us our freedoms. This isn’t the fringe, people, the following quotes are actually from the party platforms of Montana and Texas.
“We believe that the practice of homosexuality tears at the fabric of society, contributes to the breakdown of the family unit, and leads to the spread of dangerous, communicable diseases.”
“Homosexual behavior is contrary to the fundamental, unchanging truths that have beenordained by God, recognized by our country’s founders, and shared by the majority of Texans.”
“Homosexuality must not be presented as an acceptable “alternative” lifestyle in our public education and policy, nor should “family” be redefined to include homosexual “couples.
We support the clear will of the people of Montana expressed by legislation to keep homosexual acts illegal.
Do those sound like people who can be reasoned with?
And, if we’re not locked up, perhaps we can be “cured” like Christine O’Donnell is insisting.
Until the Republican Party stands up and says NO to the “fringe”, I don’t think any of us can vote Republican anymore.
I support lower taxes and smaller government, but these people are a threat to my very existence. They threaten my livelihood. It’s one small step from outlawing homosexual acts to making it illegal to hire a homosexual.
They came first for the Communists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew.
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn’t speak up because I was a Protestant.
Then they came for me, and by that time no one was left to speak up.
It can happen here – we’ve done it before. Remember? We locked up all of the Japanese during World War II. They lost everything.
We can do it again. It didn’t take much for Hitler to convince an entire country that Jewish people were evil.
It won’t take much for the O’Donnells and Ravndals of the world to pass the laws needed to round up all of us gay people – one at a time. It’s what they want and if we elect them, it’s what they’ll get.
I think I’ll go purchase a gun, because I’ll need it in order to protect my family.
