Hard to imagine this happening in the Central Valley which is much more conservative than the SF Bay Area, especially with regards to the definition of marriage.

Are the hords of pacifist Repblicans paying attention — the “higher road” segment of the right?

This heterobashing has to stop from the gaystapo brownshirts.

Where is the media to denounce this hate crime?

Hello???

I agree. I thought the attack occurred here in Sta Monica/West Hollywood but Modesto? Isolated incident. Go 8!

IMO, if the Muslim Messiah gets elected, we’re all fair game.

They have not beaten me up, but I did get a dose of eggs and tomatoes here in So. Pasadena for my “yes on 8” signs. Intimidation will be a hallmark of the Obama administration.

Hang in there. I live 3 blocks away from “The Village”, a GLAAD bastion here in L.A. and gays here are more militant.

You know, I have looked for this news all over the place but every report comes down to a PR report by an anti-Abortion organization. I have not been able to find this report anywhere else at all. No news stations, no papers, no wire service reports.

Now, I don’t outright doubt the attacks, mind you. But I don’t believe ANY report that I have only ONE source for.

Intimidation of a voter is criminal in the FEC laws, carrying the potential of fines and jail time. Report the incident.

The local rag (the Modesto Bee) has an article: Man swipes signs urging passage of anti-gay marriage Proposition 8. I think they minimized the issue in the title. The content contains: "The victim told police he had to get 16 stitches as a result, said police spokesman Sgt. Brian Findlen. "

Will the MSM step up to the plate and scold the Democrats for their hateful rhetoric?

No.

They like it.

And they wish YOU and your children were dead.

It's not a hate crime if it's perpetrated by one of the protected classes. Remember, in the ObamaNation, "All classes are equal; some classes are more equal than others"...

I found one for you. here The spin on this thing has it curving nearly full circle. They have the anti-8 people showing tolerance. I'm beginning to tire of PC Bowdlerism.

Rest assured there will be hundreds of incidents across the nation on election day, from voter fraud to common thuggery. Groups wearing their XXXL “Obama is my n**ga” shirts will be berating those showing support for McCain/Palin, and in some cases, it’ll turn ugly.

It’ll be tamer here in Texas, but I’ll be voting in Houston, and I’ve already had an incident a couple months ago at a restaurant. A woman in her 40s had a few too many to drink and walked over to my table of 20 (it was happy hour) and said “now don’ all you honkies forget to vote Obama! naw i’m sh**tin ya, it don’ matta, McCain’ll have him assassinated if he gets elected. Bye crackas!” and proceeded to stumble out.

She was laughing the whole time...just imagine what will be done by those who are NOT half-joking...

In my neighborhood in Bakersfield, every single house on our street across from me has Prop. 8 signs. (The same houses that display American flags, no surprise)

One must understand the left can never be rejected. If one does not agree with them one is deranged, ignorent, an enemy or all of the above. Therefore, if the left cannot prevail using existing political institutions it will always resort to violence. We, the unwashed, simply cannot be allowed to get in the way of Marxist disciples like Onada, Stalinery and their crowd.

The left is fighting desperately to destroy every tenet that made traditional America the great country it is. It does this through destroying the family, our political and economic institutions and our morality. Moreover, it must also destroy our belief in a deity from which our right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness eminates—not some bunch of political hacks.

Prop 8 will pass with an *Astounding YES* Marraige is ONE Man and ONE Woman.... Homosexuals have rights in thier Civil Unions....

They LIE when they say *We cannot Marry*....They can marry all they want, they do not get to re-define the meaning of marraige...You cannot try and marry a member of your own sex, you cannot marry your pet or your mom or dad or you pet hamster and think the entire state of California that still has sanity is going to sit by why you desecrate the meaning of a *Holy Covenant* Marriage....
The Spawns of NEWSOME have lost!

YES ON PROPOSITION*8 !

Well I’m filling out my ballot now and I just voted yes on prop 8.

Mailed mine yesterday. Hopefully this prop will bring out a lot of Republican voters this year. It would really be nice to see CA go Red this year. What a blow that would be to the Dems!(I know it most likely won't happen but a guy can dream)

We travelled up North this weekend so that my husband and kids could go to Fleet Week. We stayed in Pleasanton and I was really surprised at how many McCain/Palin, Yes on 8 signs and stickers I saw.

Why is anyone surprised????
Those who forget History are doomed to repeat its errors.

Hitler used his homosexual Brown Shirt thugs to intimidate the opposition....
Hitler was the German people's “messiah”....
Hitler was a grand and inspiring speaker....the mobs loved him.
Hitler wasn't even a natural born German - he was Austrian....
Hitler rose to power during economic problems in Germany..
Hitler promised the superior race would rise to power..
Hitler blamed Germany's problems on the Jews...

Sound familiar????
Get the similarities?????
