This is a few years old, but in my opinion it shows how obnoxious some liberals can be. Another example of them thinking everything has to be about them. This is a reason why I never want to associate myself with far left values. If you want a gay marriage, fine, but don't go being in my face about it.

What do you think?

People should always strive to be polite. I wouldn't single out gay marriage activists, however. I could post videos of tea party activists being loud, rude and disruptive at meetings about Obamacare. Can activists be rude and obnoxious? Sure. But you'd have to have a peabrain to believe it's only on the progressive side of the aisle.

Now, in the spirit of being polite-- Have a great night.

Looks like people expressing their views to me. That's the way town hall meetings go. Tempers often flare up. Surely you can't be so blind as to think that only liberals behave in a combative manner. Would you like me to post videos of conservatives behaving badly?

Have you no integrity?

Why is every other post in this section have to be "crazy conservative says this" or "idiotic liberal says this." Both sides have lunatics. Can we stop pointing it out and focus on the intelligent people who are looking to discuss? This constant fingering pointing and pretending that one side is less guilty of close mindedness than the other needs to stop. Act like adults.

I get that many like to shove gay marriage at people and throw the word bigot around. The thing is, there's a group across the street shoving the Bible at people and screaming 'abomination' at the top of their lungs. Pointing this crap out doesn't make a difference and I've really grown tired of people pretending one side is doing it more because anyone with an internet connection and a the slightest amount of objectivity can see that's nonsense.

I thought the first woman who spoke in favor of GM did a great job, very well written speech and very much in the spirit of Democracy. The older woman I think was trying to tell the liberal peanut gallery the truth about what she was up against in the State Legislature but of course they had to be louder than the one next to them and score their points. Just reinforces my theory that the vast majority of these far leftwingers are really children inside. They need a lot of attention.

I think most of them have personality disorders so they are drawn to controversy and issues like this, I bet many of them don't even believe in what they are railing on.

How does it make them "far left wingers" simply to support gay marriage ? Even a number of Conservatives support gay marriage.

Do you think these gay marriage activists were rude and obnoxious?


and clownish, vulgar, crude, surly, repugnant, and mostly...predictable.
