The Gay KK

Best of the Web Today found this story, and seems to have coined the clever little phrase in the title, but Rod 2.0, a black gay blogger and writer, reports on a rally outside the Mormon Temple in LA:
It was like being at a klan rally except the klansmen were wearing Abercrombie polos and Birkenstocks. YOU NIGGER, one man shouted at men. If your people want to call me a FAGGOT, I will call you a nigger. Someone else said same thing to me on the next block near the temple...me and my friend were walking, he is also gay but Korean, and a young WeHo clone said after last night the niggers better not come to West Hollywood if they knew what was BEST for them.

Rod goes on to report that two Gay group spokespeople have condemned this sort of scapegoating, but I learned something else I did not know. Way back in 1981, following Reagan's election, People for the American Way was founded by television producer Norman Lear. According to Wikipedia, which admits that this is not a neutral article, it was, ostensibly,
"an energetic advocate for the values and institutions that sustain a diverse democratic society ... threatened by the influence of the radical right and its allies who have risen to political power."[1] Its principal targets have been Religious Right organizations such as Christian Voice (USA), Moral Majority, and Focus on the Family.

How things change. They have now gone radically toward the pro-gay agenda. Their president is an out lesbian mother, and they now include freedom of "sexual orientation" in their values statement. That was completely missing in their founding statement.

And they still claim to desire "freedom to worship", so I wonder if they have condemned those who are protesting outside Mormon churches whose worship requires the condemnation of homosexual practice ... Or if they will condemn Rod 2.0's comparisons of a rally by Black churches in support of Prop 8 to the Nazis:

Using the Nuremberg rallies as an inspiration, or perhaps sporting events in totalitarian societies, three dozen anti-gay, black pastors use hundreds of marching Los Angeles school children to encourage blacks to vote "yes" on Proposition 8.

Steve Lopez at The Los Angeles Times describes the quasi fascist spectacle:

The uniformed children were a nice touch Tuesday at the Crenshaw Christian Center, marching out of school with U.S. flags -- like good little soldiers in a holy war -- to hear ministers preach against the evils of gay marriage. ...

The Yes on 8 banners read: "For Children. For Families. For Our Future."

Apostle Frederick K.C. Price stepped to the microphone. "I believe and teach the Bible," he said, pausing briefly, as if nothing more needed to be said.

But he went on to quote Genesis, saying marriage is that which occurs between a man and a woman. To veer from that course, he suggested, would "jeopardize our children's future."

I wonder if he is familiar with the Gay Nazis and how he feels about them ....
