"Death to fa"...er, wait, "Let Minnesota Vote!"

So, the bigots are going to be rallying at the Capitol against gay marriage on April 20th (also Hitler's birthday, but I'm sure that's just a coincidence). Last time around, though, some of the signs were a little, how shall we put it, extreme for the tastes of the organizers. Sure, many of the people who oppose gay marriage actually do hate homosexuals, but putting that on a sign isn't good for media relations, apparently. So this year, organizers have some guidelines for signmakers (warning: PDF file). I especially like the "It’s Simple: Either You’re for Marriage or You’re Against It" suggestion, demonstrating the fact that many of these people's brains actually are monochromatic.

Personally, I would like to see a "Being a bigot is kewl" sign at the rally, but I probably won't. Oh well.

My favorite was "Senators: Stop Playing Politics with the Future of Minnesota Families." I guess they also suffer from severe irony deficiency.

The organizers can send out all the memos they want, but I don't think it'll do much good. They're presuming most of their base knows how to read.

Actually i think we should be encouraging the various nut jobs to further their goals with ever more outrageous signs.

Nothing will get sensible Minnesotans more angry than radicals pushing an meaningless agenda while real problems are left unaddressed.

The most damning thing being said about the Bachman bill is why waste the time when other things are much more important.this sort of goes with the Minnesota passive agressive attitude that unless the house is on fire, leave it alone. Another problem with getting Minnisotans involved with politics is that the state level comes off as boring.

did anyone capture photos of the event? there were two folks in particular (nazi kids?) with some rather inflammatory signage, but they were there only briefly then look to have been kicked out...
