Yes the snark is already out there. I am tired of these social conservatives thinking that it is OK to harm people that don’t agree with them. Think about this you rejects. Liberalism has made large strides in the evolution of what America is. Liberals caused the thinking that blacks and whites should be treated the same. Liberalism has caused the thinking that women should have the same rights as men. So when these people that don’t like the fact that liberalism continues to try and ensure that everybody is treated equally decide to become violent, well they need to go get a prescription of Valium and go sit in their houses and chill.
According to reports, a lesbian in Nebraska was attacked by 3 men in her home, tied and gagged, beaten and had anti-gay slurs carved into her arms and abdomen. Video and the report from NBC News is here.
“My neighbor was standing there, and she had no clothes on,” Linda Rappl, 68, told NBC affiliate WOWT in Omaha, Neb. “Her hands had been tied with zip ties, and the first thing I saw was blood running down her face.”
Rappl said the sobbing woman had cuts all over her torso, arms and face. Rappl said she brought her neighbor inside and wrapped her in a blanket before calling 911.
Police officials said they wouldn’t offer many details concerning the investigation, citing the need to maintain the integrity of the case, but Lincoln police spokeswoman Katie Flood told the Lincoln Journal Star that investigators have no suspects.
Wow. 3 tough big guys were needed to keep 1 lady down and terrorize her and the entire gay communities in Nebraska. And make no mistake about it, it was domestic terrorism. If you are afraid that being public with your homosexuality might get you hurt or worse, then yes, it is terrorism. It is worse than all those Catholics out there syaing that they are being persecuted by the American public. Here, we have facts and video of people being persecuted. We have people terrorizing and killing other Americans because the conservatives in America have decided to demonize beliefs that are different than their own. And as for this being an isolated incident, let’s go down to Texas.
Dallas police are classifying a brutal attack that sent two gay men to the hospital as a hate crime.
The couple was attacked early Tuesday morning in northeast Dallas. Police said the victims were walking to a corner store at about 2 a.m. when five men in a car pulled up alongside them and shouted anti-gay slurs.
“The language used against the victims indicated they were motivated by the perception that they were gay,” said Cece Cox, CEO of the Resource Center of Dallas, one of the primary nonprofit GLBT organizations in North Texas.
Investigators said two of the attackers got out of the car with baseball bats, hitting one of the victims at least four times in the head and knocking him unconscious for a short time. The other victim tried to fight back and got caught in the car’s passenger side door as the attackers sped away.
“It makes me very sad, very sad,” said a friend of the victims, who asked not to be identified for all of their safety. “I hate it for my friends to be in so much pain.”
The friend, who is taking care of the victims, said one man had to get eight staples in his head. The other victim has bruises covering his face and scabs down his arms and legs.
“It was because they were gay,” the friend said.
“Hatred and discrimination still exist, and this is an example that unfortunately we live with that in our lives,” Cox said.
That last statement is very true. Hatred and discrimination still exist. It exists in the town of 15,000 people that I live in. Never mind the larger towns here in North Dakota. Here is one thing that I cannot wrap my mind around from these conservative cowards that attack gay people. You want limited government and limited intervention by others into your personal lives to live how you want, but you don’t practice that with others. I am going to assume that you are God-fearing Christians based on that hypocrisy. Personal experience.
All 3 of these stories are found on NBCNews.com. Finally, I leave you with another story from Texas.
Two teenage girls in a relationship were found with gunshot wounds to the head in a south Texas park, with one of them dying from her injuries, media reports say. Police were searching for their assailants.
Mollie Judith Olgin, 19, and Mary Christine Chapa, 18, were found in knee-deep grass in a nature area in Portland by a couple Saturday, said Portland Police Chief Randy Wright, who confirmed to msnbc.com details first reported by the Corpus Christi Caller Times.
Mollie Olgin died due to the gunshot wounds. Mary Chapa has lived and gave a detailed sketch to the Texas Rangers of the person that shot them. I hope that this scumbag is found and given a death sentence. Shooting people in cold blood is not acceptable in this country and I am sure that this person decided that the lives of 2 lesbians wasn’t worth much. Well, they are worth more than what the shooter thought. They were in the start of their adult life and possibly found true love. We will never know and they won’t either.
It is past time that the country and officials at all levels of government decide to stop this sort of terrorism. Gay people have every right to show their feelings to others. They have the same rights as straight people to love, laugh, and show affection. Until we, the American people, can get that through our thick heads, we will be held hostage by the social conservatives that are more than willing to give a pass to people that commit violence in the name of upholding social standards. And that is the worst form of domestic terrorism. Where Americans are willing to allow the terrorism to exist for their own political reasons. It is past time to condemn these attacks from all sides of the political spectrum, but more often than not all I hear are crickets chirping.
