Don't mention the war

As everyone in Charles Johnson's home state of California knows, last week a slim majority of voters voted Yes on Proposition 8, which imposes a ban on same-sex marriages.

Since then, tens of thousands of protesters have poured into the streets of Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, and other cities. Some of the protests have been violent; most have resulted in street closures and other unpleasantness.

Usually, when protests of this magnitude occur -- especially when the overwhelming majority of the protesters happen to be liberal Obama-lovers -- Charles and his loyal doppelgänger Zombie are at their keyboards 24/7 breathlessly reporting every single questionably-worded sign and rude chant.

But now -- not a word. From either of them.

Either Charles and Zombie don't think the furore over Proposition 8 is newsworthy, an attitude that is easily dispelled by the quickest glance at the front page of any California newspaper, or they lack the cojones to admit to their rabidly conservative readership donor base that they actually agree with the protesters' contention that religious biases have no place in the state Constitution.

Charles has created an extremely bigoted and hateful support base for himself which has obviously created some problems, neo-nazis/white supremacists and facists would be something else he struggles with.

He seems to be reluctant to disown the homophobes though... perhaps he's sufferend enough in terms of income from chasing away the Nazi's.
