Lisa Dupler, a 33-year-old from Columbus, held up a rainbow-striped John Kerry sign outside the Nationwide Arena on Friday, as Republicans streamed out after being rallied by George W. Bush and Arnold Schwarzenegger. A thickset woman with very short, dark hair, Dupler was silent and barely flinched as people passing her hissed "faggot" into her ear. An old lady looked at her and said, "You people are sick!" A kid who looked to be about 10 or 11 affected a limp wrist and mincing voice and said, "Oh, I'm gay." Rather than restraining him, his squat mother guffawed and then turned to Dupler and sneered, "Why don't you go marry your girlfriend?" Encouraged, her son yelled, "We don't want faggots in the White House!"The throngs of Republicans were pumped after seeing the president and the action hero. But there was an angry edge to their elation. They shrieked at the dozen or so protesters standing on the concrete plaza outside the auditorium. "Kerry's a terrorist!" yelled a stocky kid in baggy jeans and braces. "Communists for Kerry! Go back to Russia," someone else screamed. Many of them took up the chant "Kerry sucks"; old women and teenage boys shouting with equal ferocity.http://www.salon.com/news/feature/2004/10/30/haters/index_np.htmlSigh. Republicans are raising a new generation of haters. It's very sad.Erik
"Communists for Kerry! Interesting. In view of the fact that Bush is fine with outsourcing manufacturing to RED FRIGGING CHINA.The Republisuck party is a sham. It always has been and always will be a party of swine who will stop at nothing and stoop to the lowest possible level to win. They have no conscience and have the souls of INSECTS.Plus they never get laid. Because they are all butt ugly.And they know it.
Sigh. Republicans are raising a new generation of haters. It's very sad.If this goes on Erik, the US will be the new Northern Ireland!!!deejay7
Like folks who post on the internet 18 hours a day...?....Or those who try to intimidate voters outside polling places challenging anyone they think might vote for anyone other than Kerry by pointing and yelling?
Where's the outrage by the Cheney's over this obvious gay-bashing? Oh that's right, only John Kerry pisses them off, even though it's their own base- these types of people- who want gays like their own daughter to burn in h-ll. That is OK with them as long as they get the vote.-Scott
