    Before coming to RJ, one had no view on the American gay left, but now I do.

    There is an angry core of the American Gay Left who use cyberspace as the latest forum to unload on how the American right have done them wrong. Ignoring the damage their very own doctrine of bile and vitriol has done America damage too. One ponders: Do they put themselves before the better of America?

    I know some will dismiss what I have to say, as they won't to remain blind to the truth, and damgage they do, and put all the wrongs of America, on the right, and demand I stay out of American politics, because I'm an Aussie; not just an Australian.

    But..........since American politics has and can infect, and effect my county, I reserve a right to an opinion, and since for a number of years now, I have been the target of the hatred from many gay and bisexual left of America, I have a right to an opinion. yet many left feel that if your opinion is diffrent to theirs, you have no such right.

    Now I'm not saying all gay left are bad, just as I'm not saying all right are good either.

    But I have found the doctrine of bile and vitriol from the gay left shocking, and they need to open their eyes and see the damage they too do, and step up to the plate and claim it, own it., and then maybe they may see the change they seek.
    Just saying.

    No movement is free of extremist nut-jobs. Reasonable people judge a movement on its content, not its freaks.

    Just saying...uhh...what?

    Unless I skimmed too quickly, I didn't see any truth, neither a point nor a claim, other than, the american gay left need to open their eyes.
