And here’s Soviet-style totalitarianism in Canada. Again, this is not about the girl’s beliefs or the practice she opposes. There were obviously no rainbow poppies in the USSR. Back there it would be about the red young pioneer kerchief. Or, more likely, if we are talking about a 17-year-old, girl a pair of earrings she refused to take off. But the self-righteousness of her hounders and the language they choose would be identical.
Of course, I also think that the practice of sticking rainbows on anything because it’s fashionable to virtue-signal is idiotic and does absolutely nothing for gay rights. Zero gay people were helped (or, I’m guessing, asked for) by this girl’s persecution. But that’s not even the point in this story, though.
I know I sound like a broken record with this kind of thing but I really, truly recognize something sinister being created around us and I don’t know how to convince people to take it seriously. The “it can’t happen here” mentality is too strong.
