    White gays love to blame minorities for homophobia, but the reality is most of the anti-gay people are white – especially the ones in France.

    Anyway, France sure does seem like a violent, intolerant sh1thole. I have no desire to visit again after seeing the true colors of this country ever since the gay marriage issue came to the forefront.

    Thank you for your courage Clement.
    Too bad the haters,the supposedly religious folks,the political leaders and all the others that continue to dehumanize and murder GLBT folks through words and heinous actions only show how incredibly weak and unstable they really are.
    Goodbye my gay brother.
    FU killers.

    Was Meric gay or a pro-gay straight ally?

    Also, I hope the French justice system actually works this time. The sentences for people who rioted on May 26 was a small fine, and even that was suspended. For all America’s flaws, it can at least put killers away for life.

    well, just today a texas man was found not guilty of murdering a woman. why? the jury decided that since she was a prostitute who ripped him off of 150 bucks, he is therefore innocent.

    Antifascists are a violent leftist group. Clement would still be alive if he didn’t join a radical left-wing group.

    France should probably ban knuckle-dusters.

    MateoM, antifascism is stupid and dangerous. We should remember that Hitler and Mussolini were both radical socialists with a leftist background.

    @ “We should remember that Hitler and Mussolini were both radical socialists with a leftist background”

    You’re being sarcastic, right? If not, it’s time for me to log out and go home.

    The “fasci” groups of Italy were radical left-wing socialists labor groups. Mussolini’s father was a member of them, and Benito was an admirrer of Karl Marx and member of the largest socialist party in Italy .. until he found Nietsche and atheism.

    Why is it that the biggest monsters always come from the left wing?

  9. says

    It’s very strange to talk about left-wing “monsters” on the day when the right-wing has murdered a leftist activist who stood on the pro-gay side, our side. Do some TR posters actually think that the same right-wing thugs (the same type of nationalist anti-gay thugs who target Gay Prides in Eastern Europe) wouldn’t be happy to do to you what they did to Clement Meric?

    @Kev C: the group he joined might be violent, but all accounts here in France say he himself wasn’t, being quite frail (he recently had leukemia apparently. Remember he went to a private clothes sale, and got hit without having himself fought.

    @Dana: There is no mention of him being gay, just that he supported marriage equality. He was a friend of the babysitter of my kids, I might have more information tomorrow.

  11. Kev C says

    Yes, it’s a shame that he joined a violent group if he was non-violent. Antifascists have also murdered neo-nazis in Europe, and yet these two groups have more in common than they realize.

    Neo-nazis oppose immigration from homophobic countries. Antifascists support muslim and african homophobia.

    This would be hilarious, if not such a sad indictment of how poorly some people understand history.

    “Fascist Faggots”

    This is a common phrase used by anti-fascists. Fascist faggots, Hitler was a homosexual, the nazis were gay, etc. This is the rhetoric of Scott Lively and the rhetoric of the anti-fascists. They have more in common than they realize.

  14. Queer Supremacist says

    @Kev C: Politics make strange bedfellows.

    I think it’s time the LGBT community find common ground with the pro-2nd Amendment crowd.

  15. says

    @Kev C: You’re warping history to suit your opposition to the left. There is no anti-gay equivalency between the group Clement Meric (who stood up against homophobia) belonged to and the anti-gay right who spearheaded the violent, homophobic demonstrations around the marriage law. The leftist parties in Europe aren’t attacking gay people. You sound like a neo-Nazi propagandist when you make such ludicrous statements.

  16. Kev C says

    The only reason people join an anti-fascist group is to stomp on skinheads and fight neo-nazis. That’s it.

    I reinterate, Clement would still be alive if he listened to people like me. And he’d still be dead if he listened to people like Ernie.

  17. FunMe says

    Left is right and right is left.
    Black is white and white is black.

    FASCIST Kev C. is such a joke. Don’t crazy people always spill out nonsense like he does?

  18. Xuan says

    @Kev C
    Maybe you should assume that it is you who is uneducated. You are only discovering now that Fascism and Nazism are anti-capitalistic movements, finding their support with the poorest, and coming to power in time of deep economical crisis.

    Assimilating socialism to Fasci to fascism is like saying that the Pope is jew because Jesus was.

    Also, you blaming Clement for his death is like blaming a gay kid for being beaten to death for being gay. If he had only listened to you…

    Oh and btw, Clement was a student at Science Po, one of the most elite school in France and in the world.

  19. Kev C says

    Is the Pope jewish? It depends on whether you accept that Christianity is a jewish sect (it was) that required conversion to Judaism (it did), which meant accepting the tenets of the Torah and Old Testament (it does).

    At a certain point, denial is it’s own reality. Christians are not jews because they deny being jews, and nothing more. Similar to marxists and fascists. They both hate each other but are formed from the same impulses.
