27. Chad, that's just idiotic.
"I guess I know too many people of Afghan descent to believe 'they' want this, anymore than black slaves 'wanted' to pick cotton in Georgia, or Matthew Shepherd 'wanted' to die on that fence."

If anybody had asked the black slaves, I'm sure they would have said they would have rather stayed in Africa, and NOT been brought over here in chains by an earlier generation of imperialist corporatist pigs. And Matthew Shepard didn't invade a nation of rednecks with a gay army attempting to "educate" them, he was just trying to live his own life.

Actually a better comparison would be the homophobes who murdered him. After all (to hear them tell the story) they were merely "liberating him" from the oppression of being gay.
