5. Let me get this straight: someone who is homophobic accuses

 

CNN anchors of being a 'Gay Gestapo' for trying to silence homophobic comments on the airwaves? I think it would be better to have said 'pro-gay Gestapo,' as the original phrasing conjures up visions of the Village People ca. 1980s.

I suppose if you had a 'Nazi Gestapo' (redundant) you could have a 'Gay Gestapo' but it sounds stilted and confusing as all get out.
