BEFORE Election Day, national media hand wringers forged a wildly popular narrative: The right was, in the words of New York Times columnist Paul Krugman, gripped by "insane rage." Outbreaks of incivility (some real, but mostly imagined) were proof positive of the extremist takeover of the Republican Party. The cluck-cluckers and tut-tutters shook with fear.
But when the GOP took a beating on Nov. 4, no mass protests ensued; no nationwide boycotts erupted. Conservatives took their lumps and began the peaceful post-defeat process of self-flagellation, self-analysis and self-autopsy.
In fact, in the wake of campaign 2008 there's only one angry mob gripped by "insane rage": left-wing same-sex-marriage activists incensed at their defeat in California. Voters there approved Proposition 8, a traditional-marriage initiative, by 52 percent to 48 percent.
Instead of introspection and self-criticism, however, the sore losers who opposed Prop. 8 responded with threats, fists and blacklists.
That's right. Activists have published on the Internet an "Anti-Gay Blacklist" of Prop. 8 donors. If the tables were turned and Prop. 8 proponents created such an enemies list, everyone in Hollywood would be screaming "McCarthyism" faster than you could count to eight.
A Los Angeles restaurant whose manager made a small donation to the Prop. 8 campaign has been besieged nightly by hordes of protesters who have disrupted business, intimidated patrons and brought employees to tears. Out of fear for their jobs and their lives, workers at El Coyote Mexican Cafe pooled together $500 to pay off the bullies.

I object - there should always be a Paul Krugman alert...
They should have pooled their kitchen knives.
Viva El Coyote!!!!
I guess it would be a hate crime to kick their A$$ instead of paying money out. How hard can it be? ohhhh...
Methods of intimidation included choices of wardrobe critiques and style of dress put-downs./s :)
Personally, I think it’s good to see Michelle find her muse. When domestic muslims, Mexican immigration, or the ACLU aren’t in the headlines, she normally gets depressed and withdraws. The constant focus on the economy was sucking the life out of her. If it weren’t for the gay rights uprising, we probably wouldn’t have heard from her until her annual secularization story series, which traditionally begins some time around Pearl Harbor Day.
Consider this a try out for Obama’s Civilian Security Force.
Yo man! Remember, a fa____'s a buy, man! He'll kick your a$$!
That'd be some embarrasin' sh*t! Gettin' beat up by a fa____!
Ok, here’s a quick question?
What’s to keep them from protecting the safety of a)themselves, b) their patrons, c) their business by giving these bullies EXACTLY what they deserve? (I’m thinking 2nd amendment...)
Or is it because they’re in California?
Kramer: "You're a marriage bully!"
That is extortion and this national group should have their activities investigated by the authorities under RICO.
