"Vote Yes" vandals: Pro-gay Blaine homes defaced with spray-painted genitals

Images like this one on a "Vote No" sign were also spray-painted onto garages.
On Monday, we told you about Minnesota for Marriage's culture of victimhood -- the state's leading anti-gay marriage group takes to social media and makes a stink whenever one of its signs is defaced as if it provides a compelling reason to vote yes.

So it's ironic that what looks to be the most egregious act of vandalism so far during the marriage amendment campaign was seemingly perpetrated by supporters of the vote yes cause.

The Pioneer Press reports that sometime between Monday night and Tuesday morning, "Vote No" signs outside nine Blaine homes were defaced with graffiti. Even worse, some of the homes were left with spray-pained images of male and female genitalia and "Vote Yes" messages on garage doors.

All the vandalized homes are located near either Radisson Road and 132nd Lane or near Lakes Parkway and 120th Court.

No arrests have yet been made, but if the perpetrators are found, they could face felony charges, depending on how much it costs homeowners to repaint their garage doors.

For what it's worth, Minnesotans United for All Families hasn't mentioned the vandalism on social media.

If the anti-marriage side wants to get into pissing matches about who is suffering more vandalism and sign stealing, I know of a block in St. Paul where almost everyone had a MN United Vote NO sign, until one morning no one did. But please Christian conservatives, tell us how you're so oppressed. Having to live with the knowledge some people aren't the same as you, how unfair!

There need to be more opportunities for open dialogue between neighbors. It is a harmful community act to vandalize other's property. More understanding and less spray paint.

I'm voting No. But please remember this has also happened to vote Yes signs around the Twin Cities. Both sides need to grow up.

There is no such thing as pro or anti gay. That's like saying you're pro or anti blue eyes. For this issue, there are only bigots vs normal people. Calling bigots "anti-gay" or even homophobic gives them way too much credit.

This sounds like something Vote No persons would do to get a little negative press.

Curtis,They have probably figured that if they do catch a case of Gay1-N1 they can just be cured by their local minister. Gay is no more permanent than the flu. :-/

Oh, also, pro-gay obviously means professional gay. You know, like they've played college gay, spent time in the minor gay, and finally got called up to the big, gay league.

I'm surprised they got so close, aren't they afraid of catching gay?

 @stronnes Do you feel cool just randomly posting this? Do you think it's going to matter or are you so full of yourself and your brain-dead opinion that you just have to squeeze out as many simple-minded solicitations of intolerance as you can in a single day? Get a life, and stop telling others how to run theirs.
