What pisses me off continuously about the political situation in this country is the way various political and human rights issues are mixed up in the way they are represented. Nothing illustrates this better than today's human rights march. If there is something that does a disservice to what I stand for and believe in it's this march more than anything. Why, if I am against homophobia, must I also stand against the deportation of illegal immigrants? Why, if I am against homophobia, I must be implicitly assumed to be voting meretz or something of the sort? Why, if I don't like the biometric database, I must be assumed to be against the naqba law as well? Why, on the other hand, if I am right-winged in some of my views, must I be represented by some bigots who think this country should have a halakha law? In short: why can't I have some moderate right-wing and some moderate left-wing views without those being monopolized by fascist racist religiously-balooney homophobes from one side and whiney cocksuckers who think the human rights of people who violate the law, like suicide bombers and illegal immigrants are sacred, from the other. Why can't there be some sanity?!
