Knight/Kleder decry 'GayKK', all the while ignoring the actual 'anti-gayKK'

by Jeremy Hooper

    In another of his chats regularly posted on the Concerned Women For America's website, "Concerned Woman" Robert Knight today speaks out against a recent protest by gay activists in Machias, Maine, in which students and professors dressed in outfits that made them look like what Knight's chat partner, Martha Kleder, describes as the "Ku Klux Klan in Technicolor." Knight and Kleder decry the tactics of the gay rights fighters, attempt to refute claims that those opposing gay rights are "haters," and generally make it seem as if they are teeming with morals, and that they can't for a second understand why the gays should feel passionate antipathy towards the anti-gays' attempts to convert, stigmatize, and deny them of equality.

The big, pink, discriminatory elephant they ignore, however -- on their "pro-family"/anti-gay side is the ACTUAL KKK!!! To us, this is the chief point the gay activists were trying to convey; the Ku Klux Klan has taken on opposition to gay rights as a key platform. Even if you disagree with the klan in every other way, if you are vehemently opposing any and every policy that works to eliminate the demonization of homosexuals, on this issue, you are standing on the same side of the fence as the kkkooks. Has history ever remembered klan-supported sentiment to have been the correct, "morally sanct" stance to take?

Now, we weren't at the protest and only have this one picture (courtesy of CWA, via CCL of Maine's Michael Heath) to illustrate what transpired in Machias, so we can't be sure if the KKK/anti-gay gay gay connection was, in fact, the point the queer activists were trying to get across. But if not, it should have been -- the shared sentiment on this particular issue is undeniable, becoming increasingly more prevalent, and deeply unsettling.
