The OC Weekly jumps on the Benavides hatergate story

R. Scott Moxley, of the OC Weekly, attended last night’s Santa Ana City Council meeting.  Now the OC Weekly has piled on Councilman David Benavides too.  Here are a few excerpts from Moxley’s post:

“Thank you for standing up for the community,” community activist Sean H. Mill told Pulido, Alvarez and Tinajero. “It’s time to stand up to evil.”

A red-faced Benavides stared down at his notes but was eventually defended by one of the Independence Day group participants who said patriotism–not bigotry–had been the group’s mission on the national holiday.

About Zorro

Yes, Zorro is gay. Zorro is gay in San Francisco, black in South Africa, an Asian in Europe, a Chicano in San Ysidro, an anarchist in Spain, a Palestinian in Israel, a Mayan Indian in the streets of San Cristobal, a Jew in Germany, a Gypsy in Poland, a Mohawk in Quebec, a pacifist in Bosnia, a single woman on the Metro at 10pm, a peasant without land, a gang member in Santa Ana, an unemployed worker, an unhappy student and, of course, a good government advocate in Anaheim. Zorro is all the exploited, marginalized, oppressed minorities resisting and saying `Enough'. He or she is every minority who is now beginning to speak and every majority that must shut up and listen. He or she is every untolerated group searching for a way to speak. Everything that makes power and the good consciences of those in power uncomfortable -- this is Zorro.
