@spamfest: that's hairsplitting and disingenuous.OK, instead of saying he occasionally throws rocks at black men, he throws them at homosexuals. Better?I'm a staunch Republican and I applaud them for forming their own 'community'. I genuinely hope it makes the game more enjoyable for them.However, 2 points:- the implication is that Republicans and the Right are misogynist, homophobe, and exclusionary. Read this guild's comments carefully and recognize that perhaps Republicans are just a little more honest in recognizing their own foibles?- I find it curious that it's always been the Left that's been downright militant about characterizing such voluntary associations as exclusionary and divisive, not to mention habitually trying to 'invade' them. It's clear that this is not a group that welcomes all members - you're really not welcome if you espouse a different political view, and won't let the random anti-Republican non sequitur go by uncommented.I'm not going to say it rises to the level of tendentious hypocrisy, but I'd hope that the next time they encounter a social association that they aren't welcome into, they might remember that they too have a social group that's exclusionary, AND THAT'S OK.
