Seething Gay Activists Urge Boycott of Black People

Oh, sorry, I meant against the state of Utah. Conveniently omitted from this story is the fact 70% of the black voters in California rejected gay marriage at the ballot Tuesday, but going after the base of the party wouldn't help the cause, so it's time for a diversion. Since these bigots hate Mormons, they make a convenient target.

Nice to see the Washington Post use an angry far-left blogger as a source here.
Utah's growing tourism industry and the star-studded Sundance Film Festival are being targeted for a boycott by bloggers, gay rights activists and others seeking to punish the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for its aggressive promotion of California's ban on gay marriage.

It could be a heavy price to pay. Tourism brings in $6 billion a year to Utah, with world-class skiing, spectacular red-rock country and the film festival founded by Robert Redford among popular tourist draws.

Gay rights activist John Aravosis, whose well-trafficked is urging the boycott, is unapologetic about targeting Utah rather than California, where voters defined marriage in the state Constitution as a heterosexual act.

Utah, Aravosis said, "is a hate state," and on this issue, "at a fundamental level, the Utah Mormons crossed the line. . . . They just took marriage away from 20,000 couples and made their children bastards. You don't do that and get away with it."
Typical leftist intimidation tactics. When the little babies don't get their way, they flip out, make threats and blackmail an entire state.

Meanwhile, one of the dumbest people on the planet said California voters were too stupid to understand what they were doing. She has a point. They did vote for her.

Thanks to Gateway Pundit for the link.
