In theocrasies like Iran, executions of gay youth are notorious and blatant. However in America - the land of the free and home of the brave - executions of gay and lesbians youth take on a covert, smiling but cowardly face, draped in hypocritical religiosity, set to dulcet musical tones. Observe:
Focus on the Family has unleashed their most shameless homegrown "Kill the Gays" effort yet. Just as kids were going back to school, TrueTolerance.org was launched. Their message is about protecting children for horrible "homosexuality lessons" under the guise of tolerance. Nice. The typical family-values-style jujitsu of the Christian Right.
This is where we are in America. The body count of gay teens climb as we move toward the November mid-terms. If the endless and heartbreaking stories of lives cut short like Tyler Clementi's, if the lascivious actions and fork-tongued rhetoric from vile anti-gay GAY Jesus PIMP Eddie Long (and his ilk) don't light a fire under you to action, then this TrueTolerance video from Focus on the Family will.
Remember, these are same Tea Party people who are trying to distort truth and out-right LIE their way into power.

Shirts echo 'white pride' slogan used by white supremacists
Some of the comments to the above article in support of these shirts suggested people are "too sensitive". And if "blacks" and "gays" can be proud, then what's wrong with this?
Well, this sort of thick-headed, willful ignorance of historically disparaged groups doesn't happen by accident. It's orchestrated, and oh-so-transparent.
The reason this shirt is wrong is clear: Heteros never thought it was necessary to assert how proud they were until homos demanded equality. Whites never did either, 'til Blacks demanded equality. This is clearly a reactionary, anti-gay pseudo-movement by tongue-in-cheek 'activists' from the far right, affectionately known around these parts from this day forward as the Ku Klux Tea Party.
Since Obama, like in every other era in American history where the status quo was shaken, the bigot right rose in outcry. And just like all those previous times when they decried the evils of race-mixing and "evil-ution", and like like those Westboro freaks raising their children to hate (below) they're fighting a losing battle.

Yes, its true, even the Ku Klux Klan hates the Westboro Baptist Church, and they've placed a disclaimer on their website to prove it. ⇒
Distancing itself from Fred (God Hates Fags) Phelps' Westboro freaks just says the modern, friendlier, revisionist Klan is not totally stupid, though still insane. But don't think their all gay-friendly these days. No, they still hate us, and everyone else who isn't all four of the following: White, hetero, hateful and Christian.
What really wow-ed me though was reading their website and how they've rewritten history to make themselves heros instead of the disgruntled Confederate soldier terrorists they were:
Awwhh ... they sound down-right cuddly. No mention of the number of freed blacks who were terrorized as depicted in the below Harper's Weekly illustration, dated, ironically, 1873. I guess that's how "natural order" was restored ...
Today's sympathizers of the Confederacy, like Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour and others, are also lamenting the Klan.
Sadly, these confederate flag waving, racist, homo-hating Christians are on the rise, again, just like in the post-civil war south when they thought Blacks were going to take over. Just roll through a Palin/Bachmann rally or chat up some TeaBaggers. You won't find a Bull Connor or a George "segregation fo'eva" Wallace among them vocally advocating Supremacist views - but you can feel it. You can smell it.
In Tea Baggers, Ku Kluxers, and Red Shirts, Berry Craig put it this way:
You won't see any pointy hoods or as Craig put it, "dunce caps", on these people in the Tea Party video below. Like I've said over and over, those disgruntled racist misspelled-sign carrying McCain/Palin voters had to go somewhere - unfortunately, it wasn't away.
