Given the length of my recent post on Log Cabin’s spin of the Governor’s speech, I fear that a reference I made there to an interesting comment by Geoff Kors, a left-wing gay activist, might have gotten lost. While he heads the ostensibly nonpartisan Equality California, Kors has shown his group to be in BoiFromTroy’s words “Democratic Hacks.” Boi (no fan of this blog) noted last fall that “Kors and the entire organization have officially jumped the shark and revealed themselves to be Democratic operatives–not gay rights activists.”
Not only is Kors a Democratic activist, but he also appears to be an opponent of tolerance. Kors pooh-poohed the Governor’s emphasis on promoting that noble quality, saying, “Our community doesn’t want to be tolerated. We want to be equal.”
Noting the anti-Republican nature of Geoff’s group, I observed that he clearly does not speak for me, thus, by “our community,” he could not possibly mean all gay people. So, when he references “our community,” that is, the one which does not want to be tolerated, he must then be referring to that of other left-wing gay activists like himself.
Should we do what we can then to give this man what he wants? And do our best not to tolerate the community of gay left-wing activists?
