Suppressing civil rights never has worked, and won't now. Life is going to get really hard for those on the wrong side of the argument soon.

In addition to being a drummer for k.d. lang, Jerry Roe is apparently a member of a music group called — cough — the Friendship Commanders. Unfortunately for him, though, the only thing he’s commanding is loser-dom.
Gee, Jerry. It’s not very friendly of you to threaten those with whom you disagree. And it wasn’t too friendly of k.d. lang to retweet the veiled threat.
Do tell: how exactly is life going to get really hard for us? You’re against suppressing civil rights, but what about conservatives’ right to free speech? What about consumers’ rights to eat where they choose? Do the Friendship Commanders boast crickets on lead vocals? Because all we hear is “chirp, chirp, chirp!”
Prior to his threatening tweet, Roe retweeted this message about #ChickFilHATE from the Human Rights Campaign, “the largest civil rights organization working to achieve equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans.”

Supposedly, clicking on the link takes you to an article describing Chick-fil-A’s “extensive history of discriminating against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals.” If you should happen to find evidence of Chick-fil-A’s bigotry, please let us know, as we’re coming up empty.
