    You mean politicians attend events because they think it will help them
    Politically and failing to attend might hurt them politically?

    Knock me down with a feather! Did anyone else know this sort of behaviour goes on?

    How do you define homophobia?

    That we remember is not what actually happened, not history, but those hackneyed impressions they tried to hammer into our memories by constant repetition.

    Homophobia is such a strange word. They arenít scared of gays , they just think what they do is wrong.

    Telling that he wasn’t asked to step down for defending cowboys and Indians , training kids that it’s fun to pretend to shoot dead native Americans isn’t cool.

    I guess when he hosts , it will make up for past descrimination against two minorities so maybe that’s why. A good day for blacks and midgets .

    Lavender Mafia?

    Havenít heard that term used here in a while. There used be a chap named Dengler use it regularly, and invite people from far-right sites over to help out his arguments. Strange phrase.
