Just look back 10 years to when Republicans controlled Congress and the White House - how many gays were exterminated by the "evil" Republicans?
10 years ago the Republicans had engineered anti-gay State Constitutional amendments in over a dozen States, as part of Karl Rove's strategy to demonize gays in order to energize the electoral base and get George Bush reelected. That plan worked. Or did you forget that?
Gays weren't exterminated, but we were made into second-class citizens in State after State, our civil rights officially stripped away. And it has continued, with even more States passing anti-gay laws and Constitutional amendments since then, every one due to Republicans. Please explain that.
