Murder Fueled By Anti-Gay Hate Haunts Bachmann

As a Bashing Survivor by a group of neo-Nazi skin heads in college (Creston, IA.) this really hits close to home, to me...

Over the weekend, anti-Gay hate fueled violence claimed the life of a teenager of only nineteen years in Waterloo, IA. where Rep. Michelle Bachmann was born.  Don't expect the Des Moines-area news to run with this story, however, seeing as they are very clearly justified towards the right in terms of Gay equality!

Andrews, who was slated to start studying interior design at Hawkeye Community College, spent part of Thursday practicing with members of the Crusaders, a drill team sponsored by Union Missionary Baptist Church. He led the step team for the group, which was days away from competing in March Against Darkness.
Night found him at Nakita Wright's home on Cottage Street.
She said the problems started at about 12:45 a.m. Friday when she and Tudia Simpson, her cousin, went for a walk down the street. Andrews opted to stay behind, waiting on the enclosed porch, she said.
The two women hadn't made it as far as Adams Street a block away when they heard yelling back at the house. They ran back and found a truck stopped in the street, and the occupants were taunting Andrews, calling him "faggot" and "Mercedes," a feminization of his first name, Simpson said.  ....

At some point during the scuffle, Nakita Wright felt her leg brush against something on the ground. She looked down and saw Andrews.

"I tried to help him up, and then this boy ran back and kicked him in his face," Nakita Wright said.

(There's their "Christian love" for you!!!)

If the local media would cover stories like this, it might have the positive effect of culturally denouncing any attempts by the Theofascists in our state and our country from being so openly hostile in their motivation directed against our legal rights.

I urge everyone reading this blog to contact the following local TV news programs and demand they report on the brutal hate-filled murder of a local Gay man!  Here are the websites for WOI TV (Chan. 5), KCCI TV (Chan. 8); and WHO TV (Chan. 13)....we don't have a local Fox News affiliate.  The gods know that, had their been a report of a black man committing a crime, the news would have been all over it, or a man molesting boys couples with a piece against Gay men sunbathing nude at a privately owned part!  I am serious about this final point; during the month of June I was watching the evening news and one station paired a piece about a local man who was found guilty of having molested children with a piece re: a privately owned Gay beach along a stretch of river that families frequently raft down.  One would have to be somewhat impaired to not know what they were attempting to do--they were very clearly trying to play upon anti-Gay animus and homophobia!  I, for one, want to know who puts these stories together in such a fashion!  They were clearly playing upon offensive stereotypes intent upon vilifying us to our local citizens!
