Am I the only one who sees the parallels between the current atmosphere for gay people in twenty first century America and the beginnings of 1930s Nazi persecution of such groups as Jews, gays, Gypsies, and other minorities; or the racist laws of 19th and 20th century segregated America?
Why does this image keep sticking in my head?
Now there are gay activists threatening to “out” closeted staffers and members of Congress who vote for discriminatory legislation. I’m reminded of Jews who “passed” as Aryans.
I’m scared that this country, pushed by religious insanity, is moving toward a fascist future.
