here is something very chilling and troubling about this video that shows angry gays jostling an elderly woman, identified by Phyllis Burgess, and destroying her property – a cross, a religious symbol – in a demonstration in Palm Springs protesting the passage of Prop 8:
Here’s a longer clip, where you see just how threatening, intimidating and belligerent the gay rights activists are in denying rights to someone who opposes their view. I believe the loudmouth in white is the same man who in the clip above is seen stomping violently on the symbol of Christ’s passion.
The early part of the clip shows how dangerous the situation was for the lady and the reporter. Fast forward up to 2:28 and you’ll see very clearly the actual event, when Burgess walks in with another supporter of Prop 8, has the cross ripped from her hands and is jostled roughly. You will see a Prop 8 proponent hold a No on 8 sign in front of the camera to prevent the recording of whatever the protesters were doing and saying to Ms. Burgess.
I just did a search on AP and Brietbart for Phyllis Burgess and found no hits. Apparently only Fox News and the desert TV stations see this as newsworthy. Imagine the press coverage we would be subjected to if a lesbian had been surrounded by Mormons, jostled roughly and her … her what? … her sex toy? … had been pulled from her arms and stomped on!
The Mainly Marginalized Media appear to have decided not to cover the incident, preferring not to criticize gays for riotous, rough behavior and the descration of sacred symbols.
