The Yes On 8 people at the Prop 8 trial going on in San Francisco make me want to scream. Daily.
Thursday's star witness, Dr. (of what?) William Tam signed on to Prop 8 early on. He testified in court that, among other things, he gets his education on LGBT people from the internet, he believes what NARTH preaches but doesn't know what the American Psychological Association says about us, he thought San Francisco was run by homosexuals (apparently the Prop 8 proponents crowned Tom Ammiano queen of the the city) and admitted that Gavin Newsom, the mayor of San Francisco, is not gay. I am sure the lovely Mrs Newsom is glad to hear that.
There were several attempts by Yes On 8 and the Rev Tam to keep him off the witness stand. He tried to withdraw last week. Thursday they gave it another run, trying to keep him and his family safe from the raging homosexuals. Every day there is a lot of whine to go with the cheese how about how all of these people are terrified of us. What?? We might criticize their clothes or makeup? How about that bad hair do?
So let me show all of you the emails I received right after the Prop 8 election.
A BULLET IN YOUR HEAD IS THE REAL ASNWER
Yes, they don't know what it means for the misspelled word to be red.
SHOOT A GAY DAY :) HOW ABOUT THAT ONE?
Love the smile.
FAT LESBIANS EVIL FEMENISTS KILL ALL HOMOS NOWW HAHHAAHA
What a loser, can't even spell "haha."
GLORIA MUST DIE - KILL GLORIA SAVE OUR KIDS
Oh, so personal.
All these landed in my email at the same time on 11/08/08, just a few days after the election.
Obviously I reported this to the county sheriff who took this very seriously. I was told to have someone walk with me out to my car at night, always be attentive to my surroundings, and change my routine. They gave me a case number and then proceeded to try and find firstname.lastname@example.org.
Living in Silicon Valley really has its perks sometimes. Law enforcement knows how to track these emails down. They got a subpoena for Yahoo to access their computers and track where the email came from. The first place that they got a hit was from the rural area around Moffett Field which is very close. They tracked the ping from Montreal, Canada and could do nothing further because it had gone out of the country. Damn!
As one of my nerd friends pointed out, this was not the real site for the emails. This was not a Canadian issue, it was someone who knew how to bounce an email from the shadows. No one in Canada would care about this enough to send this kind of hate.
So when the bed wetters in San Francisco cry foul, I want to take my copies of the emails and wave in their idiot faces, especially the whiny Andrew Pugno and say, "This is what a real threat looks like, you homophobe. This is what you created." I hold all of them responsible for all this disgusting behavior they have unleashed on us.
"Your home boy William Tam got publicly humiliated Thursday. He fully admitted that he knew he was lying throughout the campaign. How can you live with yourselves? You are all immoral."
One more thing, thank you David Boies and Ted Olson and the rest of the team. You have been magnificent.
