Prop 8 donors

Filed under: Uncategorized — attaikede @ 3:58 pm

Remember I mentioned Prop 8 a while ago? It was something on the California state ballot back on election day last year.  [edited]

The link above has a maps who donated to the “Yes on 8” campaign.

I checked out the bay area and was totally shocked to find lots of people who donated in the tens of thousands. Not so much in the actual city here but all around in the suburbs. For example — there’s a cluster of 5K donors in the east bay. One “homemaker” donated 25K. Yes. 25 THOUSAND dollars … to bury gay marriage

Sometimes people really scare me.

One point though – notice that the person who created that mashup didn’t sign their name to it.  Is it really ok to create something so inflammatory anonymously?

  1. Can we cause the SAME level of suffering, trauma, and harm to the “YES ON PROP 8” crowd that THEY have inflicted on us?

    To any who say “what suffering?”, my God, you are naive. When laws aren’t in place for ALL, horrible suffering happens. Children permanently separated from parents, assets & property lost, mental disorders, financial devastation, etc….

    I say – Let’s work on SUFFERING EQUALITY. Perhaps those who donated to PROP 8 need to FEEL what we experience when we are EXCLUDED from U.S. law. They need to lose homes, children, property, and jobs….for starters. Fair is fair. Now THAT would be justice.

    Too harsh? But I’m only suggesting that they EXPERIENCE what we ALREADY DO BECAUSE of PROP 8 and similar initiatives.

    I hate to quote to Bible, but “an Eye for an eye”….
