Berlin Holocaust Memorial to Gay Victims Vandalized–Again

Berlin’s memorial to gay victims of the Nazis has been vandalized for the second time in four months. Berlin police say a window on the outside of the memorial has been broken, probably with a stone. The window allows visitors to see inside the concrete memorial and view a video of a same-sex couple kissing.

The memorial in Berlin’s Tiergarten park was inaugurated in May and suffered similar damage to the same window in August. A protest held after that attack to denounce intolerance and homophobia drew more than 100 people including Berlin’s openly gay mayor, Klaus Wowereit. [AP]

    Puh-leeze! I submit both instances weren’t by gay hating vandals but by gays who hate that the our victimization by Nazis has been trivialized into a giant concrete crapper and our love trivialized to a ludicrous film loop of two twinks making out.

    Blow the sucka up!

    Great spelling on HOLOCAUST*

  • Ahem!

    I am surprised the jews allowed us that. So far they have monopolized the situation and played it to their maximum benifit. Even after all these years every other movie, talk show, tv shows has to deal with jews. Why? And heaven forbid one should mention that, you will be feathered and tarred. Yet when other groups mention their distress they are shunned or ridiculed. And they say the jews are not running the USA! What a bunch of crock!
