Joey Manley on the election result

This aspect of Bush's re-election disturbs me too. Joey Manley:

They won by playing the hate card: essentially, they have excluded me and my life partner, and millions like us, from full citizenship status, and by rubbing our noses in the fact that they have the power to do so. That is what turned this election, the so-called "moral values" issue. The moral values of exclusion, hatred, disenfranchisement, and fear. This is hard, and it will not be forgotten or forgiven. There can be no compromise with those who deny us our basic human rights. We must fight them (legally, by the way, and non-violently) at every turn. I refuse to accept their bogus morality, and I refuse to accept their authority over my personal choices in life.

Never give up. Never surrender.

I don't call him Fearless Leader for nothing.
