That Which Is Not

Certain gay people are so committed to victim politics that they carry Police chalk in their man-purses.  And to modern artist, nothing brings more approval than poking a stick into the eyes of people with traditional morals and virtues.

So, when an artist in France decided to create, as the centerpiece of his Christmas display, an inflatable tree that looked awfully much like a giant Fire Island Party Favor, he succeeded in causing offense to the sort of people hip artists love to offend; the sort of people who think a sex toy has no place as the centerpiece of a Christmas display.

And, of course, the gay community gets to pretend that this is all about “anti-gay bigotry.”  “Oh, the hatred! I feel so victimized! Give me a Cosmo and a tax subsidy.”

Anyway…  check out the picture and tell me the artist wasn’t trying to poke people in the eye with this.

Left-Wing Democrats Horrified at the Thought of Gays Defending

Posted by V the K at 7:48 am - June 18, 2016.

The Left-Wing Democrat Mayor, Police Chief and City Council of West Hollywood are mortified at the appearance of #Shootback signs urging gay people to arm and train themselves for self-defense against violent criminals and jihadists.

“We are disturbed by them,” West Hollywood Mayor Lauren Meister said of the posters. “We don’t believe in an eye for an eye, and we advocate against gun violence.”

In addition to the mayor, Police Capt. Holly Perez of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department West Hollywood Station, who noticed the signs while going on a run, believes the signs send a bad message:

Yeah, the message that left-wing Democrat Governments cannot be relied upon to protect gay people from violence.

“I understand the sentiment behind them and 1st Amendment rights, but it’s a bad message,” Perez said. “I hope it’s just people venting that they could do this, and I’m hoping their calmness will take over. It’s our job to keep you safe.”

No, it isn’t. The police cannot “Keep you safe,” they can only mop up the blood and maybe shoot or catch the perpetrator after your dead. The police in Orlando did not keep the patrons at Orlando Pulse safe. Neither did the FBI. Neither did Homeland Security.

West Hollywood Councilman John Duran, who is gay, said the signs were upsetting and not the right message for the gay community. “Even during our heightened days of civil disobedience and protest, we have only advocated peaceful means, never arming ourselves and retaliating with violence.”

This is not about retaliation you gay leftist lickspittle, it’s about deterrence, self-defense, and not being dependent on a Government that has proven incompetent at the basic task of protecting its citizens.

Some of the comments in the LA Times article Patterico links are epic in their stupidity, with commenters literally taking the position “We refuse to support gun rights for gay people because Reagan let people die of AIDS.”

After Orlando’s Mass Murder, Anderson Cooper Attacks Florida Attorney General for not Celebrating Pride Month

Yeah, 49 people are dead because the FBI and Homeland Security let loose a deranged Muslim Democrat Terrorist, but you know what the real story is… the Florida Attorney-General didn’t send out a tweet about pride month.

I will say, I have never really seen you talk about gays and lesbians and transgendered people in a positive way until now. I read your Twitter history for the last year, and I saw you tweeting about, you know, National Dog Month and National Shelter Dog Appreciation Day or Adopt a Shelter Dog Month. You know, it is Gay Pride Month. You never even tweeted about Gay Pride Month.

Speaking of Twitter, they have suspended the accounts of Milo Yiannopoulos and Jim Hoft. I guess Twitter hates gay people.

Willful Ignorance

The Gay Left continues to contort itself like a Cirque du Soleil act to find away to blame “Right-Wing Christians” for a mass murder committed by a Muslim Democrat.

This morning’s New York Times reports that gay rights “movement leaders” wonder whether “high-profile policy fights like the one over the Obama administration’s recent directive requiring schools to allow transgender students to use the bathrooms of their choice” is increasing violence against gays. The Times’s article, by reporter Sheryl Gay Stolberg, offers potential frames for the mass murder, none of which include Islamic terrorism: “What did it mean that it happened in June, Gay Pride Month? Was it a hate crime against gay people or simply evidence that gun violence is out of control — or both? Gay rights have been advancing at a rapid clip. Has that lessened homophobia? Or maybe made it worse?”
The Atlantic’s religion reporter, Emma Green, posited a “loose connection” between what she called “anti-trans rhetoric” and the Orlando violence, during a segment on WYNC’s Brian Lehrer Show this morning entitled “Orlando and the State of the Gay Bar”: “There is a loose connection that is very difficult to pin down between some of the anti-gay and anti-trans rhetoric that we’ve seen in the U.S. not primarily from Muslim groups but from Christian groups that have laid a foundation for homophobia and transphobia. Although most of the groups that are supporting that type of rhetoric would not condone the type of violence we saw in Orlando, it does create an environment of bigotry and acceptance of homophobia against LGBT people.”
Chad Griffin, president of the Human Rights Campaign, told MSNBC today that what happened in Orlando was an example of the toxic mix that occurs when a “deranged, delusional person is taught to hate” by a “preacher on Sunday morning in church or by a politician.” Actually, no “Sunday preacher” taught mass murderer Omar Mateen to hate; we can be sure, however, that radical Islamic propaganda did.

By the way, Sally Kohn woke up this morning and asked herself, “Can I possibly tweet anything more stupid than I Tweeted yesterday?” And damned if she didn’t succeed.

Words mean themselves. Brilliant. Whatever CNN is paying you isn’t enough for that kind of heady intellectual depth.

The Endless Crusade

As predicted, even after winning gay marriage, the gay left is not going away. Activism pays pretty well, and the hours are good, and the alternative is trying to find a real job in the Obama Economy. So, to keep the donations rolling in to support their worthless jobs, the gay activist left must constantly seek out new enemies to target with their activism; Christian bakeries, for example. One of their new enemies: Religious colleges.

A coalition of more than 80 gay rights groups are expressing profound frustration after unsuccessfully demanding that the National Collegiate Athletic Association divest from “religious-based campuses” that have “requested discriminatory Title IX waivers toward LGBTQ youth.”

Did you know there were 80 gay rights groups? That’s a lot of donor lists to keep worked up and angry about stuff.

The central goal of the letter was to ask the NCAA, which governs athletics at more than 1,100 schools across the nation, to divest and pull support from Christian or religious institutions that have made these requests for waivers.

After the last Christian has been beaten into submission and sent off to Tolerance Camp for Re-Education, what are the gay rights groups going to do next?

 

 

Supporters Raise a Sh’ton of Money for Bullied Christian Family

The Christian bakers targeted by wedding cake fascists have raised $372,000 from a crowd-funding account. (On top of the money they raised on GoFundMe before GoFundMe caved to the Gaystapo and refused to let them fundraise through that serivce).

There are still tinfoil hatters who think that events like these are a scam; because Christian bakers have to power to force lesbians to sue them, then force Government agencies to enact outrageous fines against them, just so they can then go on crowd-funding sites to cash in.

The left is also spreading a rumor that they were not fined for declining to bake the cake, but for harassing the lesbian couple. This is also false.

Meanwhile, On Facebook…

So-You-Think-That-Rainbow-Makes-You-Look-CoolHat Tip: Christopher Cantwell

 

Transgendered Transsexual “Celebrity” Upset at Sharing Flight with Mitt Romney

Even for the left, this is pretty childish.

If you don’t know who (or what) Laverne Cox is, join the club.

When called out for childish rudeness, Cox claimed that *gag* is just a word gay people use to express surprise.  As in, “I just won the lottery. *gag*”

Obviously, if Mitt Romney had been a solid “man-of-the-people” “champion-of-the-middle-class” Democrat like Al Gore or Hillary Clinton, he could have avoided the whole issue by flying on a private jet like they do.

Gay Left Exploits Racism for Profit

A Gay Left Activist group looked at the violence and rioting carried out by Democrat base voters in Fergusom MO and said to themselves, “How can we buck off of this and promote racial divisiveness at the same time?”

In a vile attempt to cash in on the racial unrest in Ferguson and the tragic death of Michael Brown, gay activist company FCKH8.com releases a video (supposedly) featuring black children from Ferguson. Accusing all white people of being racist and clueless, the children, in a superbly slick production, deliver a racist rant only liberals could be okay with. Well, not all liberals. FCKH8.com is hawking t-shirts for $13. And a whopping $5 (allegedly) goes to “charities that are fighting racism.”

What can be said about Left-wing gay activists? If they’re not supporting genocidal homophobic Mohammedans in Gaza, they’re supporting the Climate Change Scheme (A progressive scam based on junk science to make all of us poorer while a few elites like Al Gore and Tom Steyer get much, much richer.)

Queers for the Climate, a new group of queer-identified activists who have made it their mission to advocate for action on global warming. What does being queer have to do with caring about climate change? The group’s logic goes like this:

“We’ve trained for this fight. We have faced persecution because of who we are and stood up to those who denied our existence.”

Get over yourself, drama princess. The only people denying your existence is that Ahmadinnerjacket guy, and the only people persecuting you because of who you are are the Mohammedans ‘Queers for Palestine’ is rooting for.

Speaking of Mohammedans, I think my embrace of that quaint, 18th Century Term is catching on.

Teaching People Not to be Victims Is Insensitive, Apparently

So, here’s what happened.

A Central California mayor’s remarks that bullying victims should toughen up and defend themselves has sparked anger among some city officials and gay rights advocates.

At a recent City Council meeting, Porterville Mayor Cameron Hamilton said he opposes bullying but thinks it is too often blamed for the world’s problems. Hamilton said some people need to “grow a pair.”

Of course, this didn’t sit well with the Party of Perpetual Grievance and Victimhood. And, naturally, the loudest whining came from the LGBT quarter.

Melissa McMurrey of Gay Porterville told KFSN-TV that she felt attacked by the mayor’s comments. She said bullies often target young gay people.

That’s where we are in Hyper-Feminized Obamerica… telling someone who feels bullied that they should stand up for themselves and be strong is considered an “attack.”

The very idea of teaching people to be strong and independent is anathema to the left. Victims are a key Democrat constituency, and children need to be indoctrinated from a young age not to be independent, but that the protective arms of the state will provide a ‘Safe Zone’ for them.

And, can we be honest about what the left’s obsession with “bullying” is really about? It’s about silencing opinions the left doesn’t want to hear. Just as Zero Tolerance policies have led to kids getting suspended and arrested for shooting finger guns or having a stray Tylenol tablet in their back-packs, Zero Tolerance bullying policies are intended to allow school officials (who tend to be hard-left fascist idiots) to shut down any speech or opinion that might hurt someone’s feelers by labeling it “bullying.”

Chase Bank Asks Employees: “Are You Now, or Have You Ever Been, a Homophobe?”

Posted by V the K at 4:47 pm - July 9, 2014.

Hat Tip: Leah and Peter H.

JP Morgan Chase Bank sent around an employee survey demanding of their employees, “Are you an ally of the LGBT commnuity?”

Each year JP Morgan Chase sends its employees a survey asking questions related to management and other non-controversial issues. A longtime Chase employee told Professor Robert George of Princeton that the survey this year included the following questions for the first time:

Are you:
1) A person with disabilities;
2) A person with children with disabilities;
3) A person with a spouse/domestic partner with disabilities;
4) A member of the LGBT community.
5) An ally of the LGBT community, but not personally identifying as LGBT.

“My personal opinion on gay issues is none of my bosses business,” said none of the people who were upset about the Hobby Lobby decision.

Left-Wing Nuts Decide the Word “Homosexual” Is a Slur

As noted before, on the right, we worry about actual issues: regulation-fueled economic decline, corruption in Government, the erosion of individual liberty, the unsustainable fiscal path of the national Government.

On the left, they worry about vocabulary.

In part, this is a mark of desperation, David Brock and his merry band of Soros-paid nutjobs are desperate for anything they can fling against the one news outlet that airs opposition views to leftist hegemony. There is no real racism, sexism, or homophobia on the right. So the left, in its desperation to remain peeved and aggrieved, must constantly lower the bar and change the rules. Hence, they declare that a previously inoffensive word is now offensive, so they can have their self-righteous tantrums about it. Also, note the new phenomenon of the “micro-aggression,” defined as a behavior that would not bother a normal person, but sends a politically correct leftist into paroxysms of outrage.

It’s also like the old English Aristocracy’s custom of establishing obscure collective nouns to refer to animals (a sleuth of bears, a whoop of gorillas, a murder of crows). The primary purpose for which was to distinguish themselves from the ill-bred peasantry, who were presumed not to know these things. In the same way, the left’s obsession with PC vocabulary is also intended as a social marker; those who use PC terminology are part of the class. Those who don’t can be safely mocked and looked down upon.

The real obsession of the left isn’t inclusion, it’s exclusion.

FYI: Add McDonald’s, Coca-Cola, and Visa to the List of Things You’re Supposed to Hate

The gay left wants you to be super-mad at McDonald’s, Coca-Cola, and Visa for sponsoring the Sochi Olympics, and not because McDonald’s killed the McRib, Coca-Cola tastes like battery acid, and a Visa affiliate is still employing Alec Baldwin. The usual suspects… Mr Michelangelo Signorile, Mr. Dan Savage, and Mr Jon Avarosis are, of course, totes apoplectic.

Hey, @McDonalds: You’re sending while goons wearing Olympic uniforms assault LGBT people.

So, everybody has to hate McDonald’s and Coca-Cola, now, in addition to Hate Chicken, Hobby Lobby, and all those other things and people political correctness requires you to hate. However, it still okay… and indeed, politically correct… to support the Iranian Government, sharia law, and the Palestinian Authority; all of which carry out regular acts of real brutality against gheys but get a total pass from the left because shut up.

Meanwhile, Back at the MSDNC 3-Ring Circus

Let’s take a quick trip to Crazytown, and see how the inmates are doing.

If you want to understand the die-hard, dead-ender Obama cultists, sometimes you have to look under that rock of MSDNC and see the pale, squishy things that dwell underneath it.

 

GLAAD Are Just Terrible People

Fresh from its “victory” over Duck Dynasty, the Fascist, Christian-Hating Bully-Boys and Bully-Womyn of GLAAD successfully threatened and intimidated old comedian Bob Newhart into canceling a scheduled appearance for a group of Catholic Businessmen. Ace comments:

GLAAD demands that Christians (fundmentalists, Catholics, those who believe in the inerrancy of the Bible) renounce a core part of their selves in order to join polite society. If they refuse, they will be excluded from society, by use of social pressure to harass, insult, humiliate, ostracize, and economically marginalize those Christians who do not fall into line.

Is GLAAD’s position so weak, so intellectually indefensible, that it cannot prevail in reasoned debate, and therefore all opposition must be bullied into silence? This is how America becomes divided and balkanized; because groups like GLAAD make civil disagreement impossible. “I disagree with what you say, but I will fight for our right to say it,” has become, “I disagree with what you say, and I will fight to see that you lose your job for saying it.”

And some will say, “Well, it’s all right, because the Government isn’t doing it, it’s just a private group.” No, it’s just technically legal for a private group to do it, that doesn’t make it right. The end result is a divided nation where civil debate is impossible.

2013 Toxic Queen of the Year – MALE and FEMALE

If you follow me on Twitter (and you should)…. you’ll know that I’ve been giving out the daily #ToxicLittleQueen Award for the past few weeks.  The origins of the award come from none other than Alec Baldwin.  Daily recipients show similar disregard for tolerance and decency.

Yesterday, I realized that despite just starting the honor several weeks ago…. I really should bestow the Toxic Little Queen of 2013. But there were SO many suggestions, that I’ve had to break it into two categories.

Feel free to vote for your favorite each day.

Winners will be announced on Twitter on Christmas Eve.

Democrats Think in Stereotypes

Imagine if an Obamacare Advocacy Group (i.e., liberal Democrats) put out an ad promoting Obamacare to blacks that featured black men and women eating fried chicken and watermelon while singing a hymn to Obamacare set to the tune of “Camptown Races.”

Imagine if an Obamacare Advocacy Group put out an ad promoting Obamacare to Hispanics that featured Hispanic men and women driving around in low-riders and picking lettuce while singing a hymn to Obamacare set to the tune of “La Cucaracha.”

Now, with those thoughts in mind, ponder this ad put together by an Obamacare advocacy group to promote Obamacare to Teh Gheys.

Leftist Panel Bashes Christianity, Reiterates Hackneyed Cliches

A panel of left-wing groups (including the Human Rights Campaign) meeting in Washington DC declared that religious liberty is a threat to the leftist social agenda, and must be stopped at all costs.

The audience received a similar narrative of religious beliefs functioning as a Trojan horse for discrimination from ACLU senior counsel Eunice Rho, who denounced attempts to pass a Religious Freedom Restoration Act in various states.

“These are very dangerous because they can allow religion to be used to harm others,” Rho said.

You see, religion, like all else in a progressive, secular society, exists only to serve the needs of the State.

And, of course, what left-wing panel would be complete without the hackneyed recitation of grievances and tiresome cliches.

“People [are] using the term ‘liberty’ when they really mean ‘my liberty, your slavery,’” the Rev. Dr. C. Welton Gaddy, president of the Interfaith Alliance, said during the discussion. Gaddy compared Christian florists who don’t want to provide service for gay weddings to employers who posted “whites only” signs in their windows.

Yeah, the Jim Crow persecution of blacks is precisely and equally identical to gays having to go across the street to a different baker to get a wedding cake because… feelings!

And if you open a business, you give up your Constitutional Rights to Free Speech, Free Association, and the Free Exercise of Religion. So sayeth the left.

Now it’s Greek bug-chasers

UPDATE: (thanks Peter in the comments): The WHO has reversed itself on this:

“The [offending] sentence should read, ‘Half of the new HIV cases are self-injecting and out of them few are deliberately inflicting the virus’.”

“This was just a gross editing error for which the WHO apologises,” said its spokesman, Gregory Hartl.

Good for the Greeks! Now, if the other reports about bug chasers in the UK and the US have been retracted or disproved, that would also be interesting and please let us know in the comments.


As if to follow-on to my earlier post, “UK bug chasers: America’s future?”, comes this sad report from the World Health Organization, page 112:

Case study: countries’ experiences of financial crisis – Greece

Suicides rose by 17% between 2007 and 2009 and to 25% in 2010, according to unofficial 2010 data (398). The Minister of Health reported a further 40% rise in the first half of 2011…Homicide and theft rates have doubled. HIV rates and heroin use have risen significantly, with *about half of new HIV infections being self-inflicted to enable people to receive benefits of €700 per month* and faster admission on to drug-substitution programmes. Prostitution has also risen…

Emphasis added. In pursuing the cradle-to-grave Welfare State, Europe has created a society of smothering government regulation, taxes, “benefits” and controls where:

  • People can no longer get ahead, or even survive, in the private economy.
  • People can survive if they qualify for government-paid benefits.

Is it any wonder that economic crisis results? And that, in the midst of the crisis, some people will do anything to qualify for government-paid benefits?

To escape the trap, Europe must do the opposite. It must dismantle the Welfare State, creating a society of freedom where most people can’t get money from government, and can survive, or even get ahead, in the private economy.
