Comment Promotion: Castro and Teh Gheys

 Commenter Cyril on Fidel’s Legacy of gay oppression.

The Cuban Freedom Flotilla (of 1980), however, involved a little secret that very soon came out. Socialist Cuba had—and has—the distinction of being the world’s only nation to experience a mass emigration based on sexual preference. Huddled in the crowded boats fleeing Castro’s Cuba were an estimated 10,000 homosexuals.

The attack on homosexuality began within a few Years of Castro’s taking power. Long before the crusades of Anita Bryant or Jerry Falwell, Castro stated that “those positions in which one might have a direct influence upon children and young people should not be in the hands of homosexuals, above all the educational centers.” A homosexual was a “deviate” who could never rise to the level of conduct required of “a true Revolutionary.”

Gays suffered greatly at the hands of the two new socialist bureaucracies. Thousands of them were placed, without benefit of trial, in camps run by the Military Units for Aid to Production. Basically these were forced labor camps, where gay people were mistreated and often assaulted and where it was not unusual for them to be executed or driven to suicide. After a while, international protests compelled the closing of these camps, but the persecution has continued in other forms

But, The Gay Left sees things differently.

There are others, including some LGBT activists, who have lauded Cuba’s government for providing free education and health care, while fighting poverty and discrimination, the Blade notes.

“Pain, emptiness, commitment are very intense and difficult feelings to separate,” gay Cuban blogger Francisco Rodríguez Cruz, who supports the Castro family, told the Blade. “It’s like going through the story of my life.”

And some gay and AIDS activists who visited Cuba earlier this year noted a thriving gay scene and reported that the government-run health care program has benefited Cubans living with HIV.

The same people promoting the fake news that “Mike Pence wants to electrocute gay teenagers” have no trouble defending a despot who murdered and brutalized gay people and sent AIDS sufferers to concentration camp. Because Socialist.

BTW: That “thriving gay scene in Havana” is the petri dish where ‘Cuban Super AIDS‘ was probably spawned.

Also, look at pictures of Havana from before Castro’s revolution and Detroit from the same period; both thriving. Then look at Havana after 50 years of Socialist rule and Detroit after 50 years of Progressive Democrat rule. Tell me again how Socialism works.

Baffled Left-Wing Journalist Discovers Gay Trump Supporter

Posted by V the K at 11:05 pm - November 21, 2016.
Filed under: Gay Politics

Dave Eggers went around the country doing what the Democrat Media Complex didn’t do very much of during the election —- talking to voters outside The Bubble —- and despite hearing what they were saying, is still at the end of a very overlong article, still baffled why the left was rejected by most of the country.

In Michigan, he met a middle-aged gay man who supported Donald Trump. (Most leftists are unaware of the existence of gay people outside the coasts.)

Steven McManus has come out of the closet twice. First as a gay man, then as a Trump supporter. We were sitting at a coffee shop in Detroit’s Eastern Market neighbourhood, and McManus was almost vibrating. This was two days after Trump’s election, and McManus was elated – about the victory, yes, but more personally, about the fact that after Trump’s election, he’d had the courage to post a message on social media declaring his support of the president-elect.

“I lived a lot of my life as a closeted guy,” McManus said, “and the liberation I felt as a man coming out was similar to how I felt coming out for Trump. You really truly think you’re the only one who has these feelings. It’s liberating. I felt it was time to come out again.”

“Trump was the only candidate talking about the trade imbalance,” McManus said. “Being a businessman, a successful businessman, he understood why business decision-makers, at the highest levels of their companies, move their production overseas.” McManus was angry when auto companies, after receiving bailouts from the US government in 2009, continued to move production to Mexico. “In Detroit, we gave America the middle class. But this is now a false economy. The housing market is decimated, and the middle class is shrinking. I want someone to shake it up. Let’s move the whole country forward.”

McManus is not blind to the rareness of an openly gay man supporting Trump. “But I don’t have to vote a certain way based on my sexuality. In my mind we’ve moved beyond having to vote Democrat just because you’re gay.” And he’s not worried about a reversal of the hard-fought right to marriage gays just achieved. “We’ve got our rights now,” he said. “It’s settled.”

At the end of the article, Eggers is still pretty much convinced the reason Trump lost is racism and Misogyny. His closing argument:

We are entering an era where uniquely vindictive men will have uniquely awesome power. Dark forces have already been unleashed and terrible plans are being made. On 3 December, the Ku Klux Klan are holding their largest public rally in years, to celebrate Trump’s victory, which they claim as their own.

I wonder if the left is going to be able to perform any sort of introspection at all after this election. They seem to be stuck at the “denial” and “rage” stage of the grieving process. It must be harder, on the left, to question one’s own dogma because of the vast media-academic echo chamber constantly reverberating with “We are right and perfect. Our enemies are racists, misogynists, haters and bigots. Their opinions are not worth listening to.”  I wonder if leftists have the basic skills to step back and look at their beliefs with any mount of objectivity.

Welcome to the Party

Gay Dude rejects “LGBT” label, rejects the Permanent Victimhood of LGBT Activism, and points out that the LGBT Activist movement is about 30 years behind the times.

This is what happens when society changes so quickly. Teenagers fighting for recognition of their identity and causing controversy for taking their same-sex date to prom went to college and learned about advocacy, gay history (from the generation of the 70’s and 80’s) and devoted themselves to fighting the injustice. But by the time they got old enough to be in charge, all the injustices were gone – but the passion and the narrative remained. Today we have an entire generation of gay people in their 30’s who have not left high school in their minds. They are still fighting Ellen’s 1996 battle. They are still carrying the torch for their 1980’s mentors. They are are still arguing against Falwell and raging against Reagan. Still trying to prove homosexuality isn’t a choice or sinful.

My generation has finally built the inclusive, diverse, safe, celebrated and socially influential gay movement we dreamed of as teenagers with complete arguments against all opposition and we simply cannot accept that its obsolete.”

What can I say but… Yup.

But the Activist Left has to keep the Coalition of Permanent Victimhood. After all, if gay people acknowledged and were satisfied with their social gains, all the professional activists at HRC, NGLTF, P-FLAG and the other groups would have to get out in the real world and find real jobs; which are pretty scarce in the Obama Economy.

Sad Republicans Who Don’t Get Milo

Filed under: Gay Politics

What author is trying to say: Trump’s “Redneck” base has adopted Milo as a token gay person to hide their deep homosphobia and gay hatred. (Which is how those deplorables really feel about gays.)

Simpler and Far More Plausible Explanation: Trump’s base never hated gays to begin with and just welcome Milo as part of the team.

Also, Milo’s very existence cheeses off the sort of left-wing bigots [and fanatical #NeverTrumpers] who imagine that gay-hatred is universal on the right and among the lower classes they think of as beneath them. The author seems to be more of a Jeb-Loving Sad Republican than a leftist; but I can’t help think Milo has done more for conservative gays than Jeb or any other Sad Republican could have.

Democrats have nominated transgenderoids to run in heavily Republican congressional districts in Colorado and Utah: Both of them are named ‘Misty.’

Misty K. Snow will run against tea party favorite Sen. Mike Lee in Utah this November, while Misty Plowright will challenge Rep. Doug Lamborn in Colorado.

Both solidly represent Democrat Party values.

“[Misty Plowright] has been in a committed long-term relationship with her wife Lisa for 9 years. Colorado did not have marriage equality when Misty and Lisa first got together. They had moved to Seattle in 2007 and were able to obtain a domestic partnership in 2010 before moving back to Colorado. Legislation changes converted their domestic partnership to legal marriage in 2014. They have both been in a loving, long-term, committed relationship with their mutual partner, Sebastian, for the last 2 years. All 3 partners support each other emotionally, physically and financially. “

Massachusetts Governor Hasn’t Kneeled Enough to Please Gay Left

Posted by V the K at 10:13 am - April 14, 2016.
Filed under: Gay Politics

Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker has bent over backwards to accommodate and codify into law the Gay Left’s social agenda. However, he was recently disinvited from a Gala hosted by the Gay Leftist National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce because:

  1. He attended a conference in Las Vegas that also happened to be attended by people the Gay Left doesn’t like.
  2. 2.His support of a Tranny Bathroom Bill was deemed insufficiently enthusiastic.

There’s also an ambition Democrat State Legislator in the mix who maneuvered to have the Republican Governor disinvited (which suggests that the stated reasons for the disinvitation are bogus, and he was really disinvited for political reasons), and the Gay Left happily obliged.

Either way, there is a lesson to be learned here. One, you have to be in absolute obedient lockstep with the gay left (as difficult as that is to do when you’re on your knees) because the slightest deviation will not be tolerated. Two, if you are a Republican, you will probably be unwelcome anyway because the Gay Left is pretty much just a segment of the Democrat Coalition anyway.

Streisand:

[Barbra Streisand] made ridiculous and patronizing demands on interior decorators who recently worked on her $100 million Malibu mansion.
“They were told by a friend of hers, ‘Now children, you cannot make eye contact with Babs. You know that she does not like that. Do not look at her while you’re here,’ ” reveals our source.

Confused Elderly Woman:

“It’s enough I have to see you shit-kickers every day, I’m not going to talk to you too!! Just do your G*damn job and keep your mouth shut.” – From the book American Evita, by Christopher Anderson, p.90 – Hillary to her State Trooper body guards after one of them greeted her with “Good Morning”

It’s amazing how many gay men worship those two miserable women.

Gay Activists to Bring NFL to Its Knees

Posted by V the K at 11:09 am - November 6, 2015.
Filed under: Gay Politics

The Lesbian Gay Bullying Totalitarians failed to pass an ordinance in Houston that would have allowed Trannies and People Who Claim to be Trannies to use whatever bathroom  they felt corresponded to their sex. Because the people rejected their agenda, the LGBT have decided to be all vindictive and stuff.

Voters in Houston this week voted against a bill allowing men to use public women’s bathrooms. LGBT activists claim this is transphobic, and in a futile act of revenge, are demanding an economic boycott on the entire city of Houston including the 2017 Super Bowl. Because hate-speech.
“The Super Bowl is slated to come in 2017, and there are rumblings of plans to ask the NFL to move and go elsewhere in support of LGBT people and other groups HERO would have protected,” LaRue said. “I also talked to some people last night, and we’re planning to create a voluntary system and group made of people who, while not obligated by City Hall, will still choose to enforce HERO’s protections in their businesses.”

I actually approve of the last bit; getting businesses to set policies voluntarily without the heavy hand of Government is as it should be.

But as for LGBT activists boycotting the SuperBowl? That’s like me giving up pedicures for Lent. When they threaten to boycott Oscar Night, then we’ll know they’re serious.

OTOH, I wouldn’t be surprised to see the NFL cave on this, because a lot of people have decided that appeasing the mentally ill is just easier than standing up for normalcy.

Terry Jean, the wealthy gay activist and major Democrat donor, tried to pay of the underage boy he was arrested for raping. But, the judge said, “Nunh-Unh.”

A proposed civil settlement by gay activist and Obama bundler Terry Bean that would have cleared Bean of criminal charges for an alleged sexual encounter with a 15-year-old boy was rejected by a Eugene, Ore., judge, according to Oregon Live.

Bean, who raised over $1 million for President Barack Obama’s two presidential campaigns, was arrested last November and charged with two counts of third-degree sodomy and one count of third-degree sex abuse. The charges stemmed from allegations that the 66-year-old Bean and his 25-year-old boyfriend had sex with the teenage boy in a Eugene hotel when he was 15.

Michael Sam Cannot Accept That He Just Isn’t As Good As People Who Don’t Like Football Think He Is

Michael Sam is claiming the only reason he doesn’t play in the NFL is because of the gay thing. (Because, remember how he got absolutely no support from anyone when he tried out for the NFL? Remember how brave and courageous nobody said he was?)

Cut. Jib. Newsletter. has a riposte.

I wonder whether Sam realizes that NFL teams gleefully employ murderers, strong-arm robbers, drug dealers, drunk drivers, wife beaters (did I miss anything?) and other assorted delights. In fact, the only thing they don’t like is the conservative and religious values of Tim Tebow! If Michael Sam were good enough to play in the NFL, he would be playing in the NFL. That he couldn’t cut it in the Canadian Football League is a powerful argument that he just isn’t good enough! After all, Canada is an enlightened, modern country, without America’s irrational hatred of homosexuals.

With the Left, It’s Always Subtraction by Division

If the Progressive Left had a mission statement, I think it would read like this. “To constantly and forever categorize and divide people into special interest groups based on race, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, religion and other factors and keep them forever in conflict so that we can forever grow Government power to manage the conflict.”

Case in point.

Ah, The Old Saving Your Political Career by Starting a Rumor You Had Sex with a Gay Prostitute Trick

Posted by V the K at 8:47 am - August 8, 2015.
Filed under: Gay Politics

In our current political climate, it is apparently better for a male politician to be accused of having sex with a gay prostitute than a female politician.

State Rep. Todd Courser planned the distribution of a fictional email alleging he had sex with a male prostitute in a bid to conceal his relationship with Rep. Cindy Gamrat, according to audio recordings obtained by The Detroit News.

Courser, a Lapeer Republican, said on one recording the email was designed to create “a complete smear campaign” of exaggerated, false claims about him and Gamrat so a public revelation about the legislators’ relationship would seem “mild by comparison.”

They should resign. And if they don’t resign, they should be kicked out of office. Their constituents should hold them to a higher standard than Democrats hold theirs to.

Lesbian Senator: Individuals Do Not Have Freedom of Religion

Posted by V the K at 2:29 pm - July 6, 2015.
Filed under: Gay Politics

The Democrat Party is becoming increasingly hostile to the First Amendment in toto, because it stands in the way of so much of what they want to accomplish.

Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.) says the 1st Amendment’s religious liberty protections don’t apply to individuals. On MSNBC last week, Wisconsin’s junior Senator claimed that the Constitution’s protection of the free exercise of religion extends only to religious institutions, and that individuals do not have a right to the free exercise of their own religion.


An Oregon judge has a similarly Stalinist take on the First Amendment
.

[The Judge in the Oregon Wedding Cake Fascist Case has imposed a gag order on the defendants,]  He doesn’t want Christian sympathizers to buy cakes from them, and thereby diminish their state-ordered pain.

He is determined that the state of Oregon shall beggar them and they shall remain beggared — so they don’t get to talk about their principled refusal to bake cakes for gay weddings, nor solicit business on that basis.

This is, obviously, anti-American and vengefully Stalinist.

A “Golden Power Couple” Falls from Grace

Chris Hughes made several billion dollars through the hard work of… um, being Mark Zuckerberg’s roommate, so he bought out the liberal New Republic publication. His husband ran for Congress on a platform of being married to a rich dude (as a Democrat, of course) and lost handily. The left loved them because they were young, gay, and rich… but that wore off.

Hughes and Eldridge were a golden power couple.

Yet, in the space of two and a half years, the glitter has dulled. The Daily Beast in one article called Hughes and Eldridge “America’s Worst Gay Power Couple.” In another, focusing on Hughes’s recent actions at The New Republic, where he had abruptly replaced the editor, Franklin Foer, and thereby caused most of the top writers and editors to leave, the Daily Beast Photoshopped a picture of Hughes’s face onto the body of Prince Joffrey from Game of Thrones—immature, incompetent, deadly, and a king too young. For his part, Eldridge had run for Congress in upstate New York, losing badly and, in the process, acquiring a reputation as a carpetbagger. Hughes and Eldridge had been lucky beyond any reasonable expectation, and had worked very hard. They had seemed destined to become one of those Washington couples whose dinner table drew a diverse array of the best and the brightest (not that they voiced such an ambition). But inexperience and a high profile are a chancy mix, and the two young men were now widely viewed as entitled brats.

I predict a messy gay divorce in the future and/or an allegation involving the sexual abuse of a minor; because that’s something that seems to go hand-in-glove with being a gay Democrat power broker.

[Yeah, I misread the phrase "golden power couple" the first time through, too.]

Sally Kohn… the lesbian pundit who thinks we shouldn’t be bombing ISIS because that’s what they want us to do, who doesn’t understand that its the job of the legislature to pass laws, who thinks Christians and Jews commit terrorist attacks at the same rate Muslims do, and is just, generally… a very, very stupid person, now says she hopes her daughter grows up to be a vapid, militant lesbian… just like her.

I live in the liberal bubble of Park Slope, Brooklyn, where no yuppie would ever admit to wanting their kid to be anything in particular, other than happy. But more often than not, we define happiness as some variation on our own lives, or at least the lives of our expectations. If we went to college, we want our kids to go to college. If we like sports, we want our kids to like sports. If we vote Democrat, of course we want our kids to vote Democrat.

I’m gay. And I want my kid to be gay, too.

Pretty sure Ms. Kohn would accuse normal parents who hope their kids grow up to be normal of homophobia. So, let’s just let everybody figure out the math here.
