This afternoon I unfriended a person, who posted a link to a Gendertrender post that attacked parents of transkids, who supported their cildren transitioning while very young.
I consider the people of Gendertrender to be full blown Nazis who would cheerfully exterminate transsexual and transgender people.
Treating them as having anything legitimate to say id pretty much the same as citing David Barton on the intent of the Founding Fathers when it comes to the separation of church and state.
Or actually like citing a white supremacist on matters of race.
If you embrace the beliefs of those who post on Gendertrender I do not want to associate with you.
But with this person it went one step further. They are part of the quasi-anti-Semitic BDS movement. A movement that pretends their anti-Semitism is really anti-Zionism.
I do not support everything Israel does. I sincerely wish there could be peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians. But I am also aware of the repeated Muslim launched wars aimed at the annihilation of Israel and the Jewish people living there.
I am aware of the suicide bombers that pushed the Israelis into their hard line position.
Further I am fully aware of the thinly disguised anti-Semitism on the part of many in the BDS movement.
Thinking for myself and having a personal set of ethics makes following any one’s party line difficult, especially when the people parroting that party line seem more intent on pushing an ill disguised radical agenda that is in contradiction to my personal values and ethics.
Too many of the ultra radicals on both the left and the right really embrace some pretty damned hateful ideologies.
So it goes… Disassociation with the click of a button.
