    What on earth does any of this have to do with hate? FYI, the majority of Americans oppose gay marriage, abortion and support Arizona's right to enforce the law. Good on them. But I guess this doesn't matter when you're striking poses on the internet, trying to look all hip and 'progressive'.
    Fuck off back to CE.

    It's almost as if big business owners are sympathetic towards conservative causes.. No one's mentioned the urban outfitters & prop 8 gifts? There's a real paradox..

    Who gives a fuck?

    I find it hilarious that people wont buy something just because the company donates money to some thing they don't agree with. Pure stupidity.

    THANK YOU

    I am going to boycott Right Wings .... right after I order a pair of GTs this week. But I promise to atone for these sins by using them to kick a random fascist in the teeth!

    Not sure what the big deal is. Not only is it indirect (supporting a group who chose to support a candidate) but the group is supporting the candidate for economic reasons, not because they hate gay people and mexicans. Seems like a pretty important distinction to make.

    I thought this said "Boycott Red Wine?" and I was all prepared to get pissed off. Now I don't care. Carry on.

    Red wine would be a lovely boot colour, but lacks the cache of saying "I'm gonna lace-up my Right Wings and head down to the Art College for a cappuccino and check-out the poetry slam, brah!"
