14. check out the pink pistols' enemies list
Edited on Sat May-19-07 11:42 AM by iverglas
The following organizations have lent monetary, grassroots or some other type of direct support to Anti-Gun organizations. In many instances, these organizations lent their name in support of specific campaigns to pass Anti-Gun legislation such as the March 1995 HCI "Campaign to Protect Sane Gun Laws." Many of these organizations were listed as "Campaign Partners," for having pledged to fight any efforts to repeal the Brady Act and the Clinton "assault weapons" ban. All have officially endorsed Anti-Gun positions.

For more details on these companies or groups, see the section on Anti-Gun Corporations/Corporate Heads, below.

This detailed information is being supplied, to make the owners of stocks, and users of products and services, totally aware, of whom these organizations or people are.

It would take many pages to print out; I assume it's just cribbed from the NRA's enemies list.

If you're a Methodist, you're there. If you belong to the ACLU or the American Bar Association, you're there. Most people at DU are probably there, one way or another.

College Democrats is there. The Women's National Democratic Club is there. The YWCA is there. The United Nations is there. The Union of American Hebrew Congregations is there. The Unitarian Universalists are there and the United Church of Christ is there. Physicians for Social Responsibility and PETA and People for the American Way are there.

Oh good grief, I wasn't even looking at all the Hollywood liberals on their own separate list.

Aaliyah - Singer
Aerosmith - Pop Music group
Allen, Krista - Actress
Allen, Steve - Entertainer*
Amis, Suzy - Actress
Anderson, Louis - Comedian
Anderson, Richard Dean - Actor
Arquette, David - Actor
Asner, Ed - Actor

-- and obviously, that's just the "A"s.

And cartoonists -- Garry Trudeau's there.

All the big MSM are there. Except Fox.

And a whole lot of big corporations -- Disney, Hallmark Cards. So I wondered: any overlap between the PPs' enemies list and a list of anti-gay corporations? I found this one on a quick google:

Lemme see ... Denny's and Domino's Pizza, two easy picks. ... Nope, they're not on the Pink Pistols' enemies list. Maybe the PPs have a separate list for anti-gay people and things ... but I'm not seeing it.

That link does have Fox on the list.

Oh, and Jerry Falwell isn't on the PPs' list.

Their links page:

No Democratic links there. No links to anywhere I'd want to be going. Not even, oh, the Human Rights Committee. Not a single GLBT-focused/friendly kinda link at all.

Here's a good one: "The Hate Crime Myth"
(On edit - just realized that the PP link took me off the site; sorry for the icky link)
Three fine reasons why "hate crimes" legislation is a bad idea.
"People don't save people. Guns save people."

Not in my world or any world I want to live in.
