Prop 8 Defense Cites Will & Grace and Brokeback Mountain To Prove Lack Of Discrimination Against Gays And Lesbians (Now THAT Is Seriously Demented)

Incredible!

David H. Thompson, the defense attorney in Perry representing supporters of Prop 8, today cross-examined plaintiff witness Dr. George Chauncey, the Yale history professor about how not everybody discriminates against gays and lesbians.  Namely, that the journalistic and entertainment media.

Read the transcript from FireDogLake because I can’t evenm bring myself to post such GARBAGE here.

The overall insanity of that whole line of questiuoning is beyond me.  I suppose African Americans weren’t discriminated against before the 1965 Civil Rights Act because of Amos ‘n’ Andy on the radio and Bill Bojangles dancing with Shirley Temple in the movies, and Hattie McDaniel getting an Oscar.

I also guess Thompson he failed to watch all of “Brokeback Mountain” because the main character is murdered for being gay. “
