In The Eye Of Newt

Newt Gingrich thinks that anti prop 8 demonstrations are "gay and secular fascism in this country that wants to impose its will on the rest of us, is prepared to use violence, to use harassment. I think it is prepared to use the government if it can get control of it. I think that it is a very dangerous threat to anybody who believes in traditional religion."

Check out the fear language. And the purposeful lies.

Here in France, people protest at the drop of a hat. That's because they have a tradition for making their voices heard. Because they believe they have the right to dissent, and to peaceful protest. They actually believe that the government serves the people, and not vice versa. These darned socialists and their democratic ways. Sheesh.

If you happen to live in Sacramento, please join this peaceful protest. Or any of the protests that are happening nationwide. Whether you are gay or straight, this is about standing up against discrimination and hate. Take action to make all of our voices heard (Hat tip to my friend Lori over at Hahn At Home):
