Back when I lived in the Mission District of SF in the 80’s, thugs (most likely not Democrats) would beat up gays in the Castro on a weekly basis. The fags were a soft target, the kind that bullying sociopaths like to use for weekend entertainment. The gays organized into self defense patrols via the Harvey Milk Club and the Mattachine society and before long the thugs began limping away from that neighborhood missing an ear or two. This is for real. Attacks on gays stopped real quick.

We make the mistake of thinking that an issue starts with its most recent reporting. Most issues have a history that needs to be factored into the mix.

There are criminal thugs, and then there are cultural thugs.
