    I think, theyrereal, that you (the royal You) can fight to get the fascists out of power and fight for gay rights, women's rights, poor people's rights, environmental rights.

    You don't need to give up on anything to get the fascists out of power.

    You say:

    Beyond that [getting the fascists out of power], nothing else really matters, does it?

    I think the crux of the argument of everyone who is disagreeing with you is that, NO, THERE ARE STILL THINGS THAT MATTER.  There are still things that are just as important, and we feel that equality for all human beings is just such a thing.

    Niemoller decried about his selling the trade unionists down the river, the Communists, etc.  Then it was his turn.

    I can see that you're near the same page as all of us, I just think you're too willing to sell out to get the current administration out of power.  If they do get out of power (Goddess willing), but you've sold out -- you will regret it.

    When y'ain't got nothin', ya got nothin' to lose.

      a bigot and the apologist for the bigot- what makes the post you are trying to talk to a bigot is that we end up with the same result in a different way: the end of our rights. this was true of jim crow  and slavery as well- real is saying nothing new. although appparently its new to him. but then that was clear when he thought of hollywood as rep'ing what gays face in the US.

      Fear is not a winning strategy.
