I suspect he’ll learn a thing or two about “gays” while he’s in prison....

How do we know that the assailant knew that the victim was gay? Maybe he thought the victim was straight but effeminate. Do we know that the victim was, in fact, gay?

My point is that the media likes to report about gay victims because it incites more outrage than the attack of a straight guy. But does it really make a difference? The law needs to protect victims; gay and straight alike. The assault of a gay guy is not more important than the assault of a straight guy.

“....the video opens with an unseen cameraman and a second man outside the grocery store. The second man announces, “Round one. Jack City. No faggots.””

“As the man is beaten, the giggling cameraman announces, four times, “No faggots in Jack City.” An onlooker can be heard saying, “No faggot, man.””

I don’t think the police know who the victim is yet, so no telling if he is “gay” or not...but the perps sure seemed to think so. As for me, I don’t care. I don’t believe in “hate crimes” but I do believe in “crimes” and these little punks need to do some time in prison.

In other news....
A heterosexual man was attacked somewhere, but nobody cares.

Ever notice how these dirtbags almost always jump their victim from behind, and ALWAYS gang up on him or her? You never see any of these punks fight one on one.

Fudgin’ cowards.

Holder’s people. If they had attacked a white gay man, would this have even been reported?

Round two, another epic battle between protected demonrat groups. Yesterday was unionistas vs. Mexicans. Today, we have holder’s people vs. The lavender mafia. Who will win? And more importantly, can both sides lose?

These street gangs oppose faggots, but yet stay on their plantation and vote for the pro-fags over and over again.

Most gang members are dirt poor. This means they need welfare benefits to feed and house themselves. They think the GOP presents an ongoing threat to those benefits. They'd also like additional welfare benefits, which are more likely to come from Democrats. In general, any contest between prejudices and freebies is generally loaded in favor of freebies.

the mugshots of these losers look like characters out of central casting. Lock them up and throw away the key....and forget to throw food in the cage until there are no signs of life

I agree, especially when the strongman they are looking for is characterized as:

Dan 11:37 “Neither shall he regard” the God of his fathers, “nor the desire of women”, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all.

However, they may be secretly looking for a future where their latencies are justified as in:

http://www.defendthefamily.com/pfrc/books/pinkswastika/

The homosexuals in the Nazi Party were very violent against the left leaning communist effeminized homosexuals.

They thought of themselves as hyper-masculine men and not homosexual.

It's really screwed up....to say the least.
