    The Homosexual Activist Movement, A Cultural Blitzkrieg, The Discussion Resumes

    in Politics Conservative

    The extent, breadth and most of all SPEED of the advance of the homosexual activist movement can be compared to the Nazi Advance thru Western Europe in the spring of 1940,  particularly in the fact that its putative opponents are similarly unprepared to resist it.  The Nazi Blitzkrieg relied upon striking deep into the vitals of its enemies rear echlons,  moving rapidly with little regard to flank protection and reinforcing any breakthrough to achieve chaos and disruption in the enemy's rear areas and destroy unit cohension through panic and uncertainty..  These were tactics that had not been seen before and blitzkreig's victims had no answer for it.  


    Today we are witnessing the cultural equivalent of Blitzkieg with the homosexual activist's recent successes in weakening the RFRA in Indiana, and an irresolute defense by Ind governor Mike Pence and others.  Is the analogy too far reaching, wrong as a shorthand description of what is transpiring today, or does it have merit, along with other factors that describe the successes of this baleful movement?
