You watch in horror as groups of people are gathered up onto trucks and carted off to concentration camps, where they are held long enough for the furnaces to be assembled in factories owned by autocratic businessmen. And then you get to watch as the skies fill up with clouds of choking black smoke.
And by the time the rest of the world steps in and the horror is stopped, for the rest of eternity your people are labeled as monsters and Nazis, even though you had nothing to do with it. You only watched.

Senator Ted Cruz stopped in Iowa to campaign for the presidency and as usual spewed the kind of bigotry and anti-gay rhetoric we are used to hearing from the newbie from Texas. However, this time he went even farther than usual by telling his followers that he'd strip the Supreme Court of their powers over judges' same sex couples cases.
In the likely event that the Supreme Court brings marriage equality to all 50 states this summer, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) wants to strip the entire federal judiciary of its power to hear cases brought by same-sex couples seeking the right to marry, according to the Dallas Morning News.
Cruz’s remarks came during a speech in Sioux City, Iowa, where the tea party senator also praised the original, more discrimination-friendly version of Indiana’s new “religious liberty” law, and claimed that a cabal of liberals and big business endorsed a “radical gay marriage agenda” which says that “any person of faith is subject to persecution if they dare” disagree with marriage equality.
