So Much for Voting Your Conscience

This is a sad, sad statement on our society when people are publicly outed, hunted down, and threatened for donating money for a political cause.

Overtones of Kristallnacht in Kalifornia...

I particularly like the part about the website showing a map where Prop 8 supporters live. Usually when people protest in front of someone's home for the purposes of intimidation, there's a burning cross involved.

Now the enraged brownshirts of the New Left in San Francisco know where to find homemaker Donna Mohr, who contributed $100 to Prop 8.

Wow! That is scary. That is just unbelievable. Almost like a modern day interactive witch hunt. The San Francisco Inquisition.

Yes I am aware of this. As I reside here in the "peoples democratic republic of California" Or "union of soviet socialist kalifornians" this is not news. I don't think the article mentioned the 80 something year old restauranter in Los Angeles who was publicly humiliated , threatened and had her restaurant boycotted because of this.

Yeah, I did read that in an earlier article. She has a daughter that runs the restaraunt with her right?

Dan Cooper, of Cooper Firearms endorsed Barak Obama. It is an employee owned company so his employees threw him out for endorsing Obama sin ce his actions were counter to those of the company and threatened their livelihood.

Different than what is going on in California. No one outted Cooper. He openly endorsed and donated to Obama's campaign and was quoted in USA Today.

It was a business decision by the owners of the company. No different than if the CEO of Hormel or National Beef came out promoting being a vegitarian and donated to PETA.
