Blackmail and Threats From the Right

Maggie Ghallager and her ilk have the gall to accuse us of blackmailing and harassing Yes on 8 supporters by boycotting their businesses, suddenly casting themselves as victims. Not only, as many have pointed out, did the Yes on 8 people publish the names of No on 8 supporters, but people like Ghallager (Bill O'Reilly, who jumped into this) and the rest of the right-wing back have boycotted everything from the country of France to department stores that say won't put the word "Christmas" in their holiday displays.

Now comes the latest: They are threatening the judges of the California Supreme Court if they rescind Prop 8. They're welcoming the court's decision -- as long as it the decision they want.
