As veterans of many gay pride parades in San Francisco and Chicago, we’re used to anti-gay protesters. Usually these are misguided bible-beaters with signs bearing Biblical verses. Annoying, but fairly harmless. We’re not used to the absolute hatred that we saw in today’s anti-gay mob. These people had burning anger in their eyes, as they shouted “Kill The Gays,” raised their arms in the unmistakable Nazi salute, threw glass ash trays into the crowd, and pushed up against the police barricades.
