Quote Of The Day – Amanda Marcotte

“[B]igots cannot wait to play the victim. Don’t give them legitimate cause. Just as with the people sending glitter bombs to anti-choicers. Yes, it’s funny watching a bunch of people who would literally force you to give birth against your will whine because they have glitter in the carpet. But these folks are dying for any angle they can get to play the victim. If they can get the tiniest toe hold to claim that your actions extend beyond free speech into harassment and attempt to cause material harm, they are going to grab it and hang on for dear life. So don’t.” – Raw Story columnist Amanda Marcotte, responding to the threats against the Indiana pizza parlor. Marcotte suggests that merely quoting bigots verbatim is “often enough to make your point.” Which is kind of the entire theme of this here website thingy.
