The San Gabriel Valley Tribune reports that the "Save Our State" a.k.a. "Minutemen" a.k.a.

This is a fairly good article covering the June 25'th anti-hate rally coming up here in two days though the right-wing newspaper continues to change the number of anti-hate participants from the May rally ever downward.

What's interesting about this article is the stark contrast between the peaceful anti-hate protesters and the "Save Our State" a.k.a. "Minutemen" a.k.a. Whatever they're calling themselves this time around.

On the anti-hate side of the ledger, we see all the various and diverse groups of individuals pledging to behave themselves as always, as is done in a polite, civilized, Constitutional Democracy where community, laws, and respect for others is the rule of the land.

On the hate side of the ledger, we read demands, threats, refusals, violence, refusal to obey proper rules of reasonable conduct, and everything that the American ideal is opposed to.

Above all, in this article -- ironically published in a heavy right-wing newspaper -- we see easily and clearly who's on the side of wrong, and which side is actually upholding the American ideals of civilized society.

My opinions only, of course, and only my opinions.
