Inaccurate: vegans and lesbians are fine with me.

Nope, I just call them like I see them. In Mr. Blaikie's case, I'm
willing to accept his claims, but recall that "for evil to prosper only
requires that good men do nothing". Being 'open minded' and 'balanced'
with leftists usually gets a person shot or jailed by them in the end.
