Homophobia is over!

Looking at the Huffington Post headline this evening (“No More Matthew Shepards”), I couldn’t help but think of Steven Colbert’s declaration that racism was over when Obama won the presidency. How’d that work out?

So the President signed a bill that would expand a 1968 law making it a federal hate crime to assault people based on their race or religion to include sexual orientation. Now, according to the headline, there will be no more assault on people based on their sexual orientation? How does one respond to something so stupid?

Are they implying that no one has been assaulted because of their race since 1968? That’s some powerful law you have there.
