Since 2008 – Progress Through Politics

A 70 Year-Old Lesson.

Yesterday marked the 70th anniversary of Kristallnacht, or the Night of Broken Glass, Nazi Germany’s pogrom that signaled the beginning of the Holocaust and the stripping of rights of European Jewry. Two hundred synagogues were burned, Jewish businesses throughout Germany and Austria were looted, which eventually led to the deportation of tens of thousands of Jews to concentration camps.

So as we remember the crimes against humanity of which my grandparents were victims of, I want to express my outrage while invoking Godwin’s Law with regard to Prop 8.  

It is outragous that in the year 2008 – that the LGBT community was stripped of their equal rights.  ALL of those that voted for Prop 8 deserve shame and ought to listen carefully to the following:…

You’re on the wrong side of history.

    It’s something that the culture warriors never understand, whether it be abortion (legal for over 35 years now), stem cell research, gay marriage, etc.  These debates will seem pathetically trivial to our ancestors, who will not even be able to conceive of the other side’s position.

    never has been too good about learning from history.

    Hopefully a majority of this country hasn’t become too brain dead to fix the most recent mistake of Prop 8.

    Progress doesn’t happen over night, but fuck how I wish it would.
