Group Behind #ShootBack Posters Says Gay Community Can’t Protect Families if Elected Officials Disarm Them

On Thursday morning, residents of West Hollywood, California, awoke to find their neighborhood had been plastered with rainbow-colored Gadsden flag posters that were emblazoned with #ShootBack.

The posters, 30 of them in all, were spotted near West Hollywood City Hall, the Pacific Design Center, and The Abbey, a well-known gay lounge. One also appeared in front of the home of artist Chad Michael Morrisette, who had covered the roof of his house with 50 mannequins after the terrorist attack in Orlando on Sunday.

    If the Demorats were to lose the homo vote, that would be yuge.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if it was someone who listened to Milo’s speech that you posted a link to a couple of days ago. He did mention that the Israelis shoot back and that that is something the gay community needs to emulate.

      If I remember right it was even more direct than that. I think he actually said to someone holding the “Don’t Tread On Me” version that it should say “Shoot Back”.

    Is the gay community in general figuring out what we’ve been saying since 1776 (or 1215 depending on your frame of reference), or is this only select elements of the gay community who have always felt this way?

    • Select!

      I have good reason to suspect that the queer activists represent the whole queer community as much as the professional Jews represent the Jewish community. In other words I do not think they do.

    I think this was the work of a lone gay wolf, or maybe even a straight wolf, who did this under cover of darkness because he was afraid of not finding enough support. If he is gay he might be ostracized by the other gays, and if he’s straight he would be attacked as a right-wing agent provocateur.

      Sabo acted alone, I’m willing to bet. There is no ‘group.’

    Muslims in Toronto now posting up ads to stop islamophobia but here’s the original Poster produce by a company that was only asked to show the racism and hatred in Toronto .
    Looks like the black women hates whites but finds it islamophobic for gays to oppose sharia sanctioning murdering homosexuals.

      There is no such thing as an irrational fear of Islam. So sorry no Islamophobia. There is however and irrational fear of Pork. So there is Porkophobia.
