Anti-gay marriage supporters can't be anonymous

Supporters of the ban on gay marriage said public disclosure of their financial supporters had put the donors at risk of personal harassment or boycotts to their businesses.

Fred Karger, founder of gay-rights group Californians Against Hate, said the initiative's backers had threatened boycotts against businesses that failed to donate to their effort during the campaign.

Wow. Can you show me a better example of hypocrisy?

Boycotts are at the very heart of free speech - if you act like a douche and own a business, expect to have that thrown back in your face.

Not agreeing with something doesn't make you a "douche"

There will also be people that seek these business out because of their support of the ban so it will probably even out, unless you happen to be the owner of a tanning salon.

So they have the nerve to tell people how to live, but not the balls to own up to the fact?

psst, hey, Allanis, this is irony.

I still don't get this whole thing.

Prop 8 was voted upon in November, but people are still upset about the outcome of that vote.

I didn't vote for Obama, but he was elected as my President. I have accepted that, and support him.

Folks just need to get over this and move on.

Public disclosure of political donations is a hot debate. Some people think it should be 100% public. Others say 100% private. I can see both sides of the issue, honestly, especially for people in business. For me, as long as the same standard is applied to people on every side of an issue, I'm okay with it.

I do have a problem with this bit though...

It's one thing to boycott people who donate to the other side, but to take the stance of "give us money or we'll boycott you" is intimidation, no different in character than a schoolyard bully.

the pro-prop 8 people used the same laws they're bitching about now to extort money from businesses.

    • WaPo isn't partners with the CIA. Amazon Web Services, which sells servers to thousands upon thousands of companies and websites, sold servers to the CIA. You can buy your own now right here. Does that make you partners with the WaPo? https://aws.amazon.com When Jimmy Dore says "600 million dollars is more than the Washington Post is even worth!" he's being a dumbass. The Washington Post didn't make the deal with the CIA so what they're worth is irrelevant. Amazon Web Services sold them servers, and they happen to have the same parent company as the Washington Post. The thing about Jimmy Dore is that he is absolutely utterly obsessed with Hillary Clinton. Like, utterly obsessed. Everything goes back to Hillary Clinton to him, and his obsession has morphed into skepticism of the Russian investigation, because he views it as an excuse for why Hillary lost. He can't accept the Russia stuff being true because if it's true then maybe Clinton didn't lose on merit. And so his skepticism of the Russia investigation has led him down the path of 'well the Deep State is conspiring against Trump' and 'the Deep State is the real true evil.' He fact-checks nothing. It's Alex Jones level poo.
    • Anyone who can equate any modern presidency at any moment in time with the embarrassment we see right now is off their gd rocker. What is really telling is that we now see that Trump can't just be casual.  He can't just talk it up with other peers.  He can't just chill the f*ck out. Seriously....people like this are weird as hell.   It's been obvious he's the head of a business but not a business savvy guy since the Apprentice.  I don't understand why we want the Sharknado meets 80s bad guy of Presidents.
