unclear on the concept

In the Globe.
Cambridge police received reports yesterday that several white supremacist groups planned protests in the area, and officials beefed up patrols.

But as it turns out, the Globe was accurate, though the reporting could have been a little more explanatory. There WERE groups of, yes, white supremacists, converging just to protest the false-marriages of the homosexuals. They were on TV in all their swastika-glory.

Don't you see the humor in the fact that government workers who would not otherwise stay open 5 minutes late to accommodate a young heterosexual couple eager to get married, will nonetheless OPEN AT MIDNIGHT to help out a mass wave of homosexuals?

Right. The police got the heads-up call from Archbishop O'Malley, who had the inside stuff.

It's only Pastor Fred Phelps of the Westboro Kansas Baptist Church.

Christ will return in a blinding garment of white, therefore we Christians are white supremacists. The Globe is nothing if not consistent.

The "white supremacists" in this case might be like the "anti-abortion protestors" who demonstrate against euthanasia. Or then again they might actually be white supremacists, neo-Nazis, or whatever-- arriving in Cambridge to make a splash. Then the Catholic Church will be expected to apologize for their behavior-- in fact the archbishop has already made his pre-emptive apology-- even though they are not Catholics, and in fact hate Catholics, too.

A minor editorial glitch at the Globe. While the writer was running through the list of all the bogeymen and epithets the left trots out whenever challenged by anybody for any reason -- white supremacists, neo-Nazis, skinheads, misogynists, chauvenists, fundamentalists -- he accidentally chose "white supremacists" when he meant to say "homophobes." The story, of course, was written months ago and only needed a few blanks and a somewhat matching reality to be filled in.
