To its supporters, the legalization of same-sex marriage is now immortalized in the image of a rainbow flag — to the conservative Weekly Standard magazine, however, the moment is best depicted by a rainbow kill-dozer.
Tweeting out a 2,000-word piece from Monday anticipating that the Supreme Court would uphold the right of same-sex couples to marry, the neoconservative magazine simply wrote: “You Will Be Assimilated.”
Attached was a visual aid — an image of a giant rainbow steamroller apparently destroying a small town.
Driven by a handful of shadowy and presumably gay men, the machine was drawn rolling over small businesses and places of worship under an ominous sky with a dash of lightening.
The casualties of the giant gay steamroller: a church, “Bob’s Bakery,” “Dom’s Deli,” a joint labeled simply, “Pizza,” Smith & Smith Law Offices, a photography studio, and “St. Jude’s Christian Academy.”
“Corner Cafe” remained intact across the street, but appeared to be the next target in the path of the rainbow juggernaut.
You Will Be Assimilated
