Gay Groups Drop Support for ENDA Because It Won’t Oppress Christians

Several big name Gay Rights groups — including the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, Lambda Legal, and the National Center for Lesbian Rights — have decided to drop support for Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) — because it includes exemptions for religious organizations.

Several major gay rights groups withdrew support Tuesday for the Employment Non-Discrimination Act that would bolster gay and transgender rights in the workplace, saying they fear that broad religious exemptions included in the current bill might compel private companies to begin citing objections similar to those that prevailed in a U.S. Supreme Court case last week…

If they can’t force church to bow to state, then they’re not interested in ending “workplace discrimination.” (To the extent that it even exists any more, but that’s an aside.)  This tends to validate certain incendiary critics who have argued that the real energy behind the Gay Left (Inc.) isn’t so much the advancement of Teh Gay Rights as it is smashing Christians in the nose at every legal opportunity.

Gay Democrat Seems a Teensy, Weensy Bit Frustrated with DNC Leadership

Sean Eldridge, teh Ghey Dude running for New York’s 19th CD doesn’t seem especially impressed with the level of support he’s getting from the national party.

Things aren’t unfolding that well for him. DCCC Chairman Steve Israel, eager to keep Hughes’ money flowing, has played him for a fool, not even giving him a coveted Red-to-Blue slot until Sean went bonkers on him. “Israel doesn’t help at all,” one heartbroken staffer told me.“All he does for this campaign is ship us bagels and cream cheese every week. We’d all rather have local donuts. He can shove his crappy bagels up his ass with the cream cheese.”

Eldridge’s partner, Chris Hughes, made over a billion dollars from the Facebook IPO. So, you just know that they can understand and relate to the struggles of the American Middle Class.

Meanwhile, Back in North Carolina…

Clay Aiken is certainly turning into a handsome middle-aged lesbian.

The Democrats’ Totally Gay Foreign Policy

Because Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and John F. Kerry have done such a smashing job with US foreign policy and solved all the problems in the world… putting Al Qaeda on the run, restoring global respect for the United States, keeping Russia and China in check, containing Islamist terror, bringing peace throughout the Middle East …  Senate Democrats are proposing that the Administration move on to other matters of great importance.

The bill would establish a Special Envoy within the State Department, appointed by the President, to carry out the bill’s mandate. The Special Envoy would “direct all activities, policies, programs and funding relating to the human rights of LGBT people… for all bureaus and offices of the Department of State and in the international programs for all other Federal agencies….”

Under the law there would be a “global strategy requirement” such that within 180 days after enactment the Special Envoy must create a five-year global plan that will first “fully implement” President Obama’s 2011 Presidential Memorandum that first made LGBT the president’s foreign policy priority.

All other problems have been solved. So, let’s get on with the very important work of making American gays feel important so they’ll donate more money to the DNC.

BTW, if LGBT rights are such a big deal to the president, why is arming anti-gay Islamist rebels in Syria? Why does he treat the only country in the Middle East where gay people can enjoy the basic human right of not being put to death by the state for being gay — Israel — so shabbily? Why does he support the anti-gay Islamist Hamas regime?

Something’s not right about this. It’s almost like his rhetoric doesn’t match his actions at all.

SF Gay Pride Bans Military; Celebrates Traitor

Traitor Bradley/Chelsea Manning is an Honorary Grand Martial of the San Francisco Gay Pride parade; but the National Guard is, as Elizabeth Warren would say, “Heap unwelcome.”

The board of the San Francisco LGBT Pride Celebration Committee rejected a request from the Guard to set up an informational booth at Civic Center Plaza during Pride Weekend.

The military’s current ban on transgender service members serving openly, minority recruitment tactics, and sexual assault scandals were factors in the board’s decision, Pride Executive Director George Ridgely told LGBT news weekly Bay Area Reporter.

Maybe the Guard will be more welcome at the Folsom Street Fair.

No, Deranged Left, Rick Perry Did Not Equate Homosexuality to Alcoholism

Posted by V the K at 8:04 am - June 13, 2014.
Filed under: Gay PC Silliness,Gay Politics

MSDNC — a network that is trusted by an amazing 5% of Americans (which is about the same as the percentage of Americans with serious mental illness [6%] which I am sure is just a coincidence)— is shouting that “Rick Perry thinks being a homersexual is exactly the same as being an alcoholic.”

No.  He didn’t say that. What Rick Perry [who’s the Republican Governor of the state that’s created by itself more than a third of all the new jobs in the United States over the last decade) actually said is much less… incendiary.

 “Whether or not you feel compelled to follow a particular lifestyle or not, you have the ability to decide not to do that. I may have the genetic coding that I’m inclined to be an alcoholic, but I have the desire not to do that, and I look at the homosexual issue the same way.”

People in control of their own sexuality; what a radical and bigoted concept. /sarc

The ironic part is, he is echoing exactly what the gay left has been shrieking for years, “Gayness is genetic.” But suddenly it’s bigoted to say that; or, more like, politically useful to call that observation (Homosexuality is genetic, just as many other things are genetic, bigotry.)

But the left will continue with these smears because they work well on their low-information voter target audience. They managed to make millions of idiot leftists think Sarah Palin said “I can see Russia from my house,” and believe Mitt Romney was going to outlaw tampons, so it’s pretty much that all the idiot lefty blogs will be running with “Rick Perry said homosexuality is like alcoholism,” and all the left-wing mouth-breathers will be saying, “Yup, rightwingnutjobs claimin’ homersexuals is all alcoholics, or somethin’ I hates me some rightwingnutjobs.”

Gay Conversion Therapy and the Hypocrisy of the Progressive Left

Posted by V the K at 8:51 am - June 9, 2014.
Filed under: Gay Politics,Liberal Hypocrisy

The Texas GOP passed a resolution vowing to keep “Gay Reparative Therapy” legal in Texas, and the leftists are throwing their daily all-day hissy fit about it. As usual, the left, who were clearly the cultural aggressors in this (after New Jersey and California made sexuality choice therapy illegal) are now playing the victim.

It’s easy to imagine they would be equally outraged had banned sex change operations and cheered if a blue state vowed to keep them legal. Apparently, the right to undergo chemical and surgical mutilation to change one’s sexual identity is a sacrosanct right. But the right to change one’s sexual orientation, if that’s what one wants, not so much.

I’m not sure such therapy is even very effective, but I think people ought to have the right to pursue it if that’s what they want.

One wonders, if there were therapy that could make a straight person gay, would the left be against it, or would they demand that it receive federal subsidies, like Sandy Fluke’s birth control?

Those of us on the conservative/right-wing/libertarian side tend to believe that people generally have a right to make their own decisions so long as those decisions don’t hurt anyone else.

The progressive left, on the other hand, believe that people have a right to make choices so long as the progressive left approves of those choices. And, furthermore, choices the progressive left approves of should be mandatory and/or subsidized. Those the left disapproves of should be illegal.

The changing blog (and some LCR news)

Posted by Jeff (ILoveCapitalism) at 6:32 pm - June 3, 2014.
Filed under: Blogging,Gay Politics,Log Cabin Republicans

Recently, Log Cabin Republicans were denied a booth at the Texas GOP convention. I’ve debated with myself (a little) if I should even mention it.

Why the disinterest? As longtime readers know, GP is a group blog. Bruce and Dan are Republicans; and more than that, Republicans who have had past dealings with LCR. One of them might want to cover this topic. But they seem to be busy these days. Posts lately have been written mainly by V the K (who has been awesome! – if a little incendiary at times ;-) ), and to a lesser extent by me.

And I have been an Independent for years. I believe V is too. In other words, as committed non-Republicans (presently doing the posts), we may often just not care about LCR-related news. The more so because, over the years and at the national level, LCR has so often abandoned the conservative and/or small-government principles that we believe in.

Speaking purely for myself (and with no knowledge of whether the Texas LCR group is better than national LCR), I can hardly blame any Republican group for wanting to exclude LCR from anything, since LCR so often seem to be barely-Republicans. I believe very much in freedom of association.

But it turns out that anti-gay animus could be at work, in this case, because the Texas GOP platform claims that “homosexuality tears at the fabric of society.” And that is worthy of comment. I find it silly, for the following reasons.

First, the Texas GOP may be inadvertently serving the interests of LCR: dignifying them with controversy (thus, publicity) that they may not deserve. Second, I do think it would be much more accurate to say that -the extreme Gay Left- tears at the fabric of society, as does the Left in general.

Lesbian Candidate Denounced as Counter-Revolutionary

gay_inquisition_500_web_001

A Lesbian Democrat (correction not a Democrat) candidate for District Attorney in Sacramento is being attacked by gay leftists for not demonstrating sufficient fanatical loyalty to the cause.

Gay and lesbian activist groups are working hard to defeat a Democrat who is running for District Attorney in Sacramento–despite the fact that she herself is a lesbian with a stack of law enforcement endorsements. The reason: they want to punish her for not speaking out against Proposition 8, the now-defunct constitutional amendment enshrining traditional marriage in California, when it was an active issue on the ballot in 2008.

After Prop 8 passed, she continued to decline to comment on it, partly because she was running for judge, and California discourages judges from expressing political opinions. That is not good enough for gay and lesbian political organizations. They believe she should have “held a news conference with her then-partner and their two children denouncing the [Prop 8] initiative,”

What a silly woman for thinking she had independence and for abiding by the ethics of her profession. She should have known that she belonged to the Collective, and owed her loyalty always to the Collective.

Thanks Juan for the Tip.

Clay Aiken Wins Primary

Clay Aiken will be the Democrat nominee for North Carolina’s 2nd Congressional District after a narrow win in the primary and the sudden, unexpected death of his primary opponent.   Aiken will direct his campaign of Koch-brothers derangement, War-on-Women rhetoric, spurious accusations of racism, and promises of Free-Stuff-from-the-Government against pro-Amnesty Republican Renee Ellmers in a race about which I do not care very much.

Speaking of Amnesty, the CEO of the Chamber of Commerce — the puppetmasters of the GOP Establishment Aristocracy — has warned Republicans: Don’t even bother to run a candidate in 2016 unless you grant Amnesty to the millions of units of cheap foreign labor my crony capitalist friends want to replace American workers with. (Stupid, lazy American workers and their desire to for jobs with decent wages to raise their families with.)

Resistance Is Futile

Have you ever seen the “Unimatrix Zero” episode of Star Trek Estrogen Voyager in which the Borg Queen goes nanners because some of her drones have developed independent consciousnesses outside the Borg hivemind? The Queen is so desperate to stamp out any independent thought that she starts blowing up her own ships (beginning at about 2:20 in the video) just to destroy the handful of drones who are thinking independently.

Apparently, being a gay dude in New York City who eats at Chik-Fil-A is a lot like that.

Like many people, Josh Hune loves the succulent taste of Chick-fil-A menu item No. 1, the classic chicken sandwich. Like far fewer fans, Hune also happens to be gay.

“[My best friend] told me I was the worst gay in NYC,” says Hune, 23. “But I personally don’t think my money or my going there is me saying I hate gays as well. I don’t think about it like that $7 is going to some foundation to stop gay marriage. For me, it’s just food.”

The worst gay in New York City… for eating a politically incorrect sandwich.

“I have a healthy fear of the gay mafia,” says William, a gay 26-year-old digital strategist living in Hell’s Kitchen who asked that his last name not be used due to anxiety over backlash to his choice. “But the crispy chicken is orgasmic. This sounds terrible because it’s fast food, but it’s the most tender chicken I’ve ever had.”

If he were using “most tender chicken I’ve ever had” to describe an encounter with an underage boy he picked up in a bus station, the Gay Borg would have no problem with that.

Gay-Baiting Gutter Politics

I think Juan tipped this story.

Carl DeMaio is an openly gay Republican running for Congress in southern California. His campaign literature features pictures of himself with his longtime partner. He has been subject to increasingly homophobic attacks from lefty supporters of his Democrat opponent.

One false attack drew the attention of the San Diego Ethics Commission. An anonymous left-wing group funded a SuperPac and sent mailers of DeMaio Photoshopped next to a drag queen to neighborhoods with a majority of elderly and African-American voters, knowing that such a photo would depress support for DeMaio.

That was so egregious and false that the group was fined by the city’s Ethics Commission, but even after that, and with his 100 percent voting record with the LGBT community, the Left still didn’t speak up to defend him. They told DeMaio, “It’s complicated.”

“I’ve found more tolerance, acceptance and inclusion from social conservative groups who have to reconcile that I’m a Republican who happens to be gay…versus the intolerance the LGBT leaders see me as a gay man who happens to be a Republican,” DeMaio said.

This reminds me of another gay-baiting advertisement, this one made for the 2006 Campaign of Democrat Senator Max Baucus.

Renowned in political circles, the ad set porno music to 20-year-old footage of a video from Taylor’s cosmetics business. The video showed Taylor in a leisure suit rubbing cream into another man’s face. As the spot faded to black, it showed Taylor then seeming to reach for the man’s crotch as a voice-over said “Mike Taylor — not the way we do business in Montana.”

The campaign operative behind that homophobic, gay-baiting ad was a certain Mr. Jim Messina. Far from being repudiated by the Democrat Party, Mr. Messina went on to run Barack Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign; a campaign that featured allegations that his opponent had given a woman cancer, wanted to outlaw contraceptives, put black people in chains, and outlaw tampons.

The gutter tactics worked, and gutter politics will continue to be practiced for so long as voters reward gutter politicians. Voting for a politician who uses gutter tactics is tacit endorsement of gutter tactics.

Finland Issues Tom of Finland Stamps

Debated whether to insert the image and then decided… um… No. But you can see it here.

The Finnish postal service, is releasing commemorative stamps featuring the art of Tom of Finland, or Touko Laaksonen (1920-1991). Laaksonen remains a towering and iconic figure in the gay art scene. His sketches, often explicit, were unapologetic depictions of gay sex and relationships. Laaksonen’s subjects were almost always muscle-bound, handsome figures, often bursting out of their clothes. His work, a meditation on masculinity, was also heavy on leather fetish imagery.

Given the Democrat Party’s ceaseless gay-pandering, (like Obama’s recent choice for an openly gay clergyman to deliver the prayer at Easter breakfast) I expect that a similar set of Robert Mapplethorpe stamps will be issued here before too long. I just hope they’re the self-adhesive kind. Nobody wants to lick that.

Showing Who Their Heroes Are

The Gay Left has decided that the ideal choice for Honorary Grand Marshal of the San Francisco Pride Parade is convicted traitor Bradley Manning.

Today, the nation’s largest Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Pride Celebration Committee announced on its website that WikiLeaks whistle-blower traitor (-Ed) Chelsea Manning has been chosen to represent the event as a 2014 Honorary Grand Marshal.

Manning thanked the San Francisco Pride Committee from Fort Leavenworth military prison, declaring, “As a trans* woman, I appreciate the Pride movement’s significant role in bringing together diverse communities and elevating the public profile of the fight for queer rights. I have always enjoyed attending Pride celebrations given the opportunity, and I’m deeply honored to receive this title.”

Obviously, he was the only gay person in the military worth honoring.

Then, I remember this article from The Onion, and Bradley Manning seems perfect: Gay-Pride Parade Sets Mainstream Acceptance Of Gays Back 50 Years

 

 

Points to Ponder

The good news is, by next Sunday, the Mozilla controversy will be yesterday’s news. The bad news is, the gay fascists will be behaving even more obnoxiously by then.

But in the meantime, Matt Walsh thinks l’affaire Mozillique has stripped the mask off the gay activists.

It’s no secret anymore. Without question and without exaggeration, the ‘gay rights movement’ is the angriest, most ruthless, most controlling, most intolerant of all the ideological enterprises in the country. Now, everyone knows it.

And the Bookworm Room blog argues “We don’t have a “gay mafia,” we have a “gay Soviet.”

Once, we were a country that used its government to advance the notion that “that every person is entitled to a private life and deserves respect as a human being, irrespective of the extent of his political loyalty or contribution to the state.” Now, we’re a Soviet nation, in which private citizens are told that they must publicly recant their heresies or be destroyed.

I think they’re both right. And the really sad and scary part is most of the gay activist left is happy about what they’ve brought down on us.

Gay RI House Speaker Resigns as Corruption Probe Deepens

The powerful Democrat Speaker of the Rhode Island House of Representatives resigned this weekend as Federal Agents and Rhode Island State Police raided his home and office collecting evidence of corruption in state Government.  Gordon Fox was the first openly gay statehouse speaker in the United States and a champion of the cause of same sex marriage; also a crook, apparently. Fox was once hailed by the media as “courageous” for his stance on gay marriage. “Courageous” is a word the media use to describe politicians who agree with the majority opinion of the media and the Democrat left.  As he once described himself, in a weird sort of self-victimizing compliment:

Fox once summed up his unlikely rise to become one of the most powerful figures in Rhode Island government this way: “I’m a biracial gay kid that wasn’t supposed to be speaker.”

Giving people high office and power on the basis of their being “Historic Firsts” has never worked out well, has it?

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.

Conservatives, gay politics, and lost opportunities

At the time of the Supreme Court rulings on same-sex marriage this summer, it seemed to me that by ruling as it did, the Supreme Court had involuntarily handed many conservatives a great opportunity to move beyond the issue of gay marriage in ways that they hadn’t in the past.  Instead of making it a social or cultural issue, many conservatives could have sidestepped the issue entirely by talking more about economic issues and questions of taxation and state-sponsored benefits instead.

After all, the plaintiff in the case which challenged the Defense of Marriage Act was moved to file suit largely because of the estate taxes she incurred when her partner passed away.  So instead of viewing  it as a social or cultural issue, they could have taken up the cause of greatly reducing estate taxes for all regardless of marital status.

While I’m obviously biased on the issue, it seems to me that running on an anti-gay agenda is not a winning issue for conservatives.  I recognize that social conservatives played a very big role in the Reagan revolution, and I acknowledge that social conservatives are still an important part of the base that the Republican Party needs to keep winning elections.  But I believe that there are ways to accommodate social conservatives without alienating other potential voters.  Talking about court appointments is one way of doing this, because one needn’t be a social conservative to believe that the court should focus more on applying and interpreting the actual intent of the Constitution rather than legislating from the bench.  Likewise, one can have an honest debate about tax policy and whether or not it is in the state’s interest to carve out special exceptions for marriage or whether the state should get out of the marriage business all together and just simplify the tax code instead.

There are some signs that more and more Republican are getting this message.  On September 11 of this year, Politico reported on a survey that showed that more and more Republicans are embracing libertarian views about government.  (Hat Tip: The Blaze.)

FreedomWorks commissioned a national survey of registered voters last month, shared first with POLITICO, that finds 78 percent of Republicans and GOP-leaning independents self-identify as fiscally conservative and socially moderate.

It’s not that Republicans are suddenly self-identifying as “libertarians” and devouring Ayn Rand novels, but more that they seem to be embracing underlying libertarian priorities and views about the role of government.

The Politico piece goes on to quote the Republican pollster who ran the poll saying that more and more voters are disturbed by both the size and the intrusiveness of government in the Obama era:

Republican pollster Kellyanne Conway, who ran the poll, said she’s seeing a spike in voters who feel the government is too expensive, invasive and expansive.

“The perfect storm is being created between the NSA, the IRS, the implementation of Obamacare and now Syria,” she said. “People are looking at the government more suspiciously. They’re looking with deeper scrutiny and reasonable suspicion.”

It all sounds great so far from my perspective.  I think this is a direction that Republicans need to embrace to be able to win significantly in the future.
And then, there’s the sad case of Virginia.  I first heard of Ken Cuccinelli when he was elected Attorney General of Virginia in 2009, in an election that many viewed as a sign of trouble ahead for the Democrats in 2010.  I knew he had played a large role in fighting Obamacare and in bringing the fight to the Supreme Court, and so it seemed to me that he would have a good chance of being elected Governor of Virginia this year, especially since he is running against corrupt Clinton crony Terry McAuliffe.  Over the summer, though, I kept hearing that Cuccinelli was not doing well against McAuliffe in the polls, and I wondered why that might be.
