    Do those gay bars, bookstores, and coffee shops finance anti heterosexual hate groups? I don't think so.

    I'm not gay but I'm in a minority group. If Sheriff Arpaio wanted to open a chain of Mexican food restaurants and used some of the money I spent there on financing the Minutemen, I would have some issues with that. On the other hand, if he only wanted to make a profit and retire with the promise of stitching his bigot-ass mouth shut until he died, I'd be the first in line for the tacos.

      We've already seen the arguments they'd use countless times during their successful ballot initiatives against marriage equality: we "undermine family values" and we're "predators for their children" and we "promote promiscuity" and such. Using those arguments and others like them would have essentially the same effect if permitted to silence expression.
