Accidental Organizing and Determination

by Deborah Lake

Being EXTREMELY bord, I visited the Paltalk chatroom Liberal Destruction of America tonight.

I had just finished explaining that the President of Iran did not say that Iran had no homosexuals, to some poor victim of corporate media. I posted the sentence and the link in the chatroom Liberal Destruction of America. What he really said was: our homosexuals are quiet and yours are loud! Or: Our homosexuals are in the closet and yours aren't!

Lost in Translation

I then received a PM from "D"

Talk about your accidental organizing!

Conversation follows. It's sort of backwards because we are typing to one another rather than talking. Have fun!
