Mike Knapp, Ike Leggett and the rest of the council when confronted with this law claimed that public accommodations don’t include bathrooms. The citizen groups responded stating that such an interpretation flies in the face virtually all court opinions and other laws. In other words, a business owner could have a “white’s only” bathroom and claim its not a public accommodation if Knapp and Leggett were believed.
In the meantime the gay rights crowd mobilized to intimidate the petition gatherers. Dana Beyer, Senior Advisor to Ducy Tractenberg and formerly known as Wayne Beyer led a team of gays around the county intimidating the citizens. Video of the action can be found on YouTube. http://youtube.com/results?search_query=dana+beyer+maryland&search_type=
Having failed to stop the petition the gay groups have now brought lawyers and out of town activists to look at the signatures and intimidate those who signed. Their plan is to call each person who signed and convince them to withdraw their signature. Using out of town money and talent and other unfair tactics the gays are doing everything they can to keep the bill out of the hands of the voters.
One 69 year old grandmother said of Mr. Beyer “a man dressed as woman came up to me and said he was here to ‘re-educate me’ about the bill.” The grandmother told Mr. Beyer that she was already educated.
Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot and Ho Chi Minh would be proud of Mr. Beyer’s “re-education” efforts and the joyous support of his bosses on the Montgomery County Council. As of today, Gender Identity Disorder is still a mental illness. Why is the council collaborating with madness?
