As reported by EQUALITY CALIFORNIA, this sign, "Dan White Hero. Killing A Queer" was sighted at the Prop 8 hearing last week as the California Supreme Court heard oral arguments against and for the Prop. For those of you that don't know, Dan White was the man who shot San Francisco Mayor George Mascone and City Supervisor Harvey Milk in 1978. Both men were killed by White's bullets.(Dan White's attorney at his trial argued what is known today as the Twinkie Defense). This poster should be one of outrage and disbelief!
Is this 2009 or is this 1809? To believe that some people still feel this way about any group is unbelievable! That anyone would feel this much hate as to call a killer a hero is beyond my imagination! But unfortunately, some things never change as sophisticated as we think we are.
