Gays embrace Nazi symbology


This post is my reaction to the story Teachers Won't Hang Gay Rights Poster. It has two elements that get me enraged. First is that people are not outraged that gay groups use the symbol (a pink triangle) that the Nazi's used in concentration camps to identify gay prisoners. The so called plight of today's homosexual in now way, shape, or form related to the inhuman actions of the Nazi's. This is not a symbol of pride nor is it appropriate as a symbol for any organizations use other than its historic reference as a marking used by an evil group. The image I have included (from the archive of US Holocaust Museum) shows the pink triangle used by Nazi's to mark those considered homosexual.

The second element that makes my blood boil is the incredible hypocrisy. The leftist, like the principle quoted in the story, don't see the problem hanging a gay symbol on the wall!!!!!! Gee, can I hang a Playboy Bunny on the wall in the classroom as a symbol for the straight students? How about a poster promoting Young Republicans? How about a poster for Jewish unity? How about a poster to make the Catholic students feel protected and welcome? OF COURSE WE CAN'T. But we can put something up that is 100% related to who someone wants to have SEX with on the classroom wall...that's ok?????...and Principal Amy Furtado has no F'ing clue what the controversy is about???? Tell me, please someone tell me, how these people are blind to the hypocrisy here.

By your logic, I guess Hindus should stop using the swastika in their religious symbolism since it's associated with the Nazis...

MOV, give me a break...you're obviously all fired up because Alito's in, and Sheehan looks more foolish with each passing day :)

Who says I like Sheehan? What I do like is being able to say what I want no matter how ridiculous in this great country, and Sheehan has the same right too.

And what's with completely avoiding my point? You talk about Sheehan and Alito but stay silent about the real point I'm trying to make which is that almost any symbol has multiple connotations depending on the time, place, and culture.
