"I have concerns about some of the language that is being used because I saw this myself in the late '70s in San Francisco," Pelosi said, suddenly speaking quietly. "This kind of rhetoric was very frightening" and created a climate in which violence took place, she said.Funny think is Dan White (a democrat) killed Moscone and Milk not over the issue of anyone’s sexuality or politics, he killed them because Moscone wouldn’t reappoint White to a commission he once headed and when White lobbied Moscone for it Milk chimed in and objected as well.
Former San Francisco Supervisor Dan White was convicted of the 1978 murders of Mayor George Moscone and Supervisor Harvey Milk, a gay rights activist. Other gay rights activists and others at the time saw a link between the assassinations and the violent debate over gay rights that had preceded them for years.
Kind of takes the wind of the sails of that bullshit comparison when you know the fuller story.
