Reports: Orlando shooter was patron at nightclub, on gay hookup apps https://t.co/HMLZPuBCvE…— Washington Blade (@WashBlade) June 14, 2016
Those who preach intolerance and self-hatred have blood on their hands. But I suspect that instead of recognizing this, they will start talking about gay-on-gay crime. We've heard their poisonous sermons before.
Meanwhile, on a wooden deck beside woods, one of Bernie's smarter supporters torches her Elizabeth Warren t-shirt. Just the latest example of the odd tendency of arsonists to burn down their own neighborhoods.
Thank you, Mr. President. #ImWithHer
An excellent speech by Hillary Rodham Clinton.
A powerful moment in Hiroshima as our president embraces one of the Hibakusha, a survivor of the atomic blast 71 years ago. My heart soars. I am so proud of this man, who with simple grace leaves the haters in the dust and honors the better angels of our nature. He enlarges himself and us.
The haters on the right are going ape. It is a reminder of the despicable alternative we are faced with this year. We can defeat the haters if we simply stop making excuses and vote. 71 years are long enough to cling to the bitterness of the past. If we do not heal, we make a hollow mockery of Yad Vashem's "Never Again, Never Forget."
Time magazine's rainbow cover sparks outrage https://t.co/Rbu8t99qpF— Washington Blade (@WashBlade) May 25, 2016
This article quotes one objection to the Time cover:
“Dear @time this is a gay pride flag, not a trans pride flag. This is erasure and a failure of basic due diligence,” one person tweeted.
Erasure? Really? The cover of Time Magazine is the opposite of erasure, whether you like the illustration or not. According to Wikipedia, "Unlike within the wider LGBT communities worldwide which have adopted the Rainbow flag, the various transgender individuals, organizations and communities around the world have not coalesced around one single flag design. Instead there are several flags used and endorsed by the varying transgender individuals, organizations and communities." The cover design is a striking graphic inspired by the far better known rainbow flag, which our enemies certainly regard as including the T even if you don't. This is the sort of fake controversy that causes people whose support we need to roll their eyes and turn away.
