Cincinnati Enquirer Asks Trump Supporters Not To Be Raging Racist Assholes At Rally Tomorrow

Cincinnati Enquirer Begs Trump Supporters Not To Be Raging Racist Assholes At Rally Tomorrow

Via the editorial board of the Cincinnati Enquirer:

On Thursday, the eyes of the nation will be on Cincinnati when President Donald Trump takes the stage at U.S. Bank Arena for his seventh visit to the region since announcing his presidential candidacy in 2015. Pundits will be watching and waiting for chants of “send them/her back” or some other trope that can be deemed offensive to prove a point and paint our city, state and the Midwest in a negative light.

Don’t take the bait. We’re asking you, Mr. President, your supporters and your detractors to set a new example for presidential visits. Setting an example not only includes people at the rally or protesting it, but those commenting about it on social media. Let’s do our part to dignify the debate about how best to improve our nation and the lives of all Americans. Perhaps if we can show the way, the rest of the country might follow suit.

PayPal Cancels Boston's Straight Pride Fundraising Account, Labeled "Hetrophobic"

PayPal Cancels Boston’s Straight Pride Fundraising Account, Labeled “Hetrophobic”

Clutch those pearls!:

Super Happy Fun America received an email from PayPal on July 29, 2019 notifying us that our account had been permanently limited. This means that we can no longer use PayPal to collect donations. In the same manner as other corporations, they accused us of violating their “Acceptable Use Policy” without citing any violation. In fact, they didn’t even bother to fill in the space on their template. This is an act of cowardice likely designed to avoid a lawsuit by not having a reason on record. We will prove them wrong!

PayPal is just the latest corporation to cancel or suspend Super Happy Fun America’s accounts. BlueHost suspended our website. Patreon and Constant Contact both cancelled our accounts. Super Happy Fun America is a civil rights organization advocating on behalf of the straight community.

Massachusetts General Law c.272, s.98 prohibits discrimination based upon sexual orientation. Other states have similar laws. Super Happy Fun America will hold global corporations to account for their hate against our community. After Netflix attacked Super Happy America and straights two weeks ago their stock plummeted. If corporations think that they can get away with heterophobia then they better think again.

You can watch a clip of slob Straight (Far-right extremists, including the Proud Boys) Pride‘s John Hugo whining like a little man-baby about the “backlash” he has received on a segment of Watters World that of course was done on FOX News earlier this month.

#NeverAgain Movement Hits Back At NRA and Trump With "#What If" PSA - Video

Trump to Address NRA’s Annual Convention, Guns Banned From Convention During Speech

Donald Trump will speak at the National Rifle Association’s annual convention on today in Dallas, Houston, a little more than two months after he lying to stand up to the gun rights organization in the aftermath of the Parkland, Fla., school shooting.

Trump called out lawmakers for being “afraid” of the NRA, saying the group had “less power” over him and even backed raising the minimum age to buy rifles and imposing more expansive background checks — both positions which are strongly opposed by the NRA.

But when the White House actually announced its proposals to improve school safety, the approach was pretty much in line with NRA policy stances.

White House press secretary Sarah “Somkey Eye” Sanders said at a briefing on Tuesday that safety is a priority for the Trump administration.

“But we also support the Second Amendment, and strongly support it, and don’t see there to be a problem with speaking at the National Rifle Association’s meeting,” Sanders said.

Last year, Trump’s visit to the NRA  after the group helped put him in the White House said: “You came through for me and I am going to come through for you,” Trump told thousands of gun rights activists at last year’s convention.
The NRA is facing scrutiny over its finances following allegations that a lifetime member and Russian government official, Alexander Torshin, had funneled money through the NRA to bolster the Trump campaign in 2016.

The NRA said the U.S. Secret Service will coordinate security at this years convention and that weapons” will not in the arena while Trump is present.

“As a result, firearms and firearm accessories, knives or weapons of any kind will be prohibited in the forum prior to and during his attendance,” the NRA said. A detailed list of prohibited items includes ammunition, drones, gun parts, and firearm magazines.

FRC's Tony Perkins Cheers Trump's Anti-Gay Diplomat Visa Policy

FRC Hate Group and Tony Perkins Pray To Stop Special Rights For Gays And End Their Moral Subversion

FRC Hate Group and Tony Perkins Prat To Stop Special Rights For Gays And End Their Moral Subversion

Lord, Obergefell v. Hodges was an assault upon Your institution of marriage, the cornerstone of society. The effort to mainstream transgenderism is an assault on You as Creator and the heart of Your created order. Please help us to prevent the conferring of special rights and privileges for those who embrace aberrant sexual identities, and those who seek to re-engineer American society and law to require god-fearing Americans to submit to such moral subversion. Please stop parent’s rights from being violated, the massive confusion of our youth and the effort to capture their souls. Intervene to waken us, our pastors, churches, families, neighbors, and friends to engage in this fight and win it! – Family Research Council Prayer of the Day.

And if that is not bad (and stupid) the KKK affiliated Perkins later sent out a paranoid money beg email:

The Left is pulling out the stops to destroy President Trump and to stop conservatives any way they can.

Here are five ways the “Progressives” have intensified the war on your values and freedoms:

1) Igniting an explosion of propaganda sold to Americans as “news.” The mainstream media are overwhelmingly committed to undermining President Trump and the conservative cause. We now know that many supposedly nonpartisan journalists were heavily — even financially — committed to Hillary Clinton’s candidacy for president.

2) Destroying public trust and spreading confusion. The media are hard at work in supporting the leftist agitators by spewing “fake news” and sounding the alarm about nonexistent crises virtually every day — dutifully affirmed and repeated by liberals in Congress and statehouses across the nation — all designed to deceive the American people.

3) Unleashing lawless radicals in the streets and town meetings. It’s now evident that Barack Obama is behind the mobilization of tens of thousands of radical agitators to shout down conservative members of Congress when they hold town meetings back in their districts and states.

4) Maintaining a shadow government working against the American government. Obama appointees who are still serving as unelected bureaucrats inside the federal government are now working against the Trump White House, essentially operating as a sort of “shadow government” from within the government itself. A torrent of suspicious leaks, some of them endangering our national security, as well as several other outrages, have made it painfully clear that enemies of America are at work inside the federal bureaucracy.

5) Coordinating and unifying the falsehood and disruption. The Left is obviously unified in its anti-Trump messaging, and its attacks are clearly coordinated across the entire spectrum of liberal media platforms and organizations.

While the Left threatens with a new level of agitation, I am encouraged. We have already made remarkable progress, and looking ahead, we have a golden opportunity to make even greater progress. Your support for FRC Action has enabled us to establish good, strong relationships on Capitol Hill and inside the administration.

As you read these words, multiple strategies are moving forward:

  • We’re working faithfully with conservatives on the Hill to craft and pass crucial pro-family legislation.
  • We’re working to see the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act passed to spare countless babies from an agonizing death by abortion.
  • We’re working with the Trump administration to unravel and reverse a whole host of extremely damaging executive orders issued by President Obama before he left office.
  • We’re working to defund Planned Parenthood.
  • We’re working toward repeal of the oppressive Johnson Amendment, the utterly unconstitutional law that muzzles the free speech of pastors and others doing faith-based work through churches and nonprofit organizations.
  • We’re just months away from implementing our plan to build upon the base of conservatives in Congress for the 2018 election.

And there’s much more, of course. But here is the bottom line: For the first time in eight long years, we are not obligated to play defense. We can get a terrific array of positive things accomplished — if we are willing to do the enormous amount of work that it’s going to require.

But our success will depend on the generosity of committed conservatives like you. So I ask you to give a generous contribution today to keep our work going strong.

All that hate … and one cracked pot to store it in.

 

TCNN WTF? - CNN Hires Anti-Gay Rick "Frothy Mix" Santorum As “Senior Political Commentator”

CNN WTF? – CNN Hires Anti-Gay Rick “Frothy Mix” Santorum As “Senior Political Commentator”

The Hill reports:

CNN is adding a new group of political contributors and commentators, including a former presidential candidate and a reporter who shot to prominence covering President-elect Donald Trump. Former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.), who ran for president in 2012 and 2016, is joining the network as a political commentator, along with former Rep. Steve Israel (D-N.Y.) and former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm (D).

The Washington Post’s David Fahrenthold and Wesley Lowery will be joining as contributors, along with J.D. Vance of National Review and Salena Zito of the Washington Examiner. Fahrenthold in October broke the story of Trump’s “Access Hollywood” video, in which he brags about sexually assaulting women. He also investigated Trump’s claims of charitable donations.

I guess CNN really is fake news.

Fuck you CNN.  Just Fuck You.

 

Rick Santorum’s Top 10 Anti-Gay Comments

*“Every society in the history of man has upheld the institution of marriage as a bond between a man and a woman. Why? Because society is based on one thing: that society is based on the future of the society. And that’s what? Children. Monogamous relationships. In every society, the definition of marriage has not ever to my knowledge included homosexuality. That’s not to pick on homosexuality. It’s not, you know, man on child, man on dog, or whatever the case may be. It is one thing. And when you destroy that you have a dramatic impact on the quality.” (2003)

*“If the Supreme Court says that you have the right to consensual sex within your home, then you have the right to bigamy, you have the right to polygamy, you have the right to incest, you have the right to adultery. You have the right to anything. Does that undermine the fabric of our society? I would argue yes, it does.” (2003)

*“I guess because you stand for traditional marriage and you believe that, you know, that people should, we should have a society that affirms one man and one woman as marriage, that makes you someone who’s a hater, someone that doesn’t, doesn’t like people. I disagree with people, by the way, who are gay and straight who believe in changing the marriage laws. But it’s a public policy discussion, and this is the, this is really the problem that we see on the left which is the personalization of politics. I mean, we have a policy disagreement, and, and which I am very passionate about. I admit that. Because I do believe the family, integrity of the family is important for the future of our country. But that does not mean that, that I don’t like people or I hate people or that there’s something wrong. The only thing that’s wrong is their opinion.” (2011)

*“But what I can say is that the state is not doing a service to the child and to society by not putting that child in a home where there is a mother and a father. This is common sense. This is nature. And what we’re trying to do is defy nature because a certain group of people want to be affirmed by society. And I just don’t think that’s to the benefit of society or to the child.” (2011)

*“Is anyone saying same-sex couples can’t love each other? I love my children. I love my friends, my brother. Heck, I even love my mother-in-law. Should we call these relationships marriage, too?” (2008)

*“I’m worried when many people will stand up and say, ‘well whatever the Generals want.’ I’m not too sure that we haven’t indoctrinated the Officer Corps in this country that they can actually see straight to make the right decisions.” (On repealing Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell) (2011)

*On gay adoption: “A lesbian woman came up to me and said, ‘why are you denying me my right?’ I said, ‘well, because it’s not a right.’ It’s a privilege that society recognizes because society sees intrinsic value to that relationship over any other relationship.” (2011)

*“I certainly would not approve of [a bill moving through the California legislature compels the state to add gay history to the state education curriculum], but there’s a logical consequence to the courts injecting themselves in creating rights and people attaching their legislative ideas to those rights that in some respects could logically flow from that. So I’m not surprised.” (On teaching LGBT history in schools) (2011)

*“I would argue, this right to privacy … doesn’t exist in my opinion in the United States Constitution, this right that was created, it was created in Griswold — Griswold was the contraceptive case — and abortion. And now we’re just extending it out. And the further you extend it out, the more you — this freedom actually intervenes and affects the family. You say, well, it’s my individual freedom. Yes, but it destroys the basic unit of our society because it condones behavior that’s antithetical to strong healthy families. Whether it’s polygamy, whether it’s adultery, where it’s sodomy, all of those things, are antithetical to a healthy, stable, traditional family.” (2003)

* “ I have no problem with homosexuality. I have a problem with homosexual acts. As I would with acts of other, what I would consider to be, acts outside of traditional heterosexual relationships. And that includes a variety of different acts, not just homosexual. I have nothing, absolutely nothing against anyone who’s homosexual. If that’s their orientation, then I accept that. And I have no problem with someone who has other orientations. The question is, do you act upon those orientations? So it’s not the person, it’s the person’s actions. And you have to separate the person from their actions.” (2003)

“In this case, what we’re talking about, basically, is priests who were having sexual relations with post-pubescent men. We’re not talking about priests with 3-year-olds, or 5-year-olds. We’re talking about a basic homosexual relationship.” (On the Catholic Church’s international pedophile priests scandal, in which, for decades, priests have sexually assaulted, molested, and raped young boys and girls.) (2003)

SHOCKER! – Report Finds That HRC Is A “Exclusionary, Judgemental, White Mans Club” #Duh

Gay Inc

 

BuzzFeed is reporting that an internal report commissioned by HRC found that employees of  the organization described the “equality” organization as a “judgmental”, “homogenous”, “exclusionary” and “sexist” “white men’s club.” The report indicates that HRC promotes white, male individuals who are perceived as masculine over those that are female, transgender or feminine-identified.

From BuzzFeed: 

“One of the most frequent concerns that rose was the sense of an organizational culture rooted in a white, masculine orientation which is judgmental of all those who don’t fit that mold,” the report states in summarizing its survey findings. “Disparate treatment toward women and those with ‘soft skills’ was frequently cited by staff — both men and women — and there is a sense that if you operate outside of that orientation, you will not be successful at HRC.”

That perception is also borne out in the experience of minority employees, according to the report, summarizing survey responses at one point as follows: “More than half of multiracial and Latino people and 83% of genderqueer people feel they are not treated equally based on their identity.”

From the focus groups, the report details criticism from younger staff and female staff about their contributions not being valued. In a listing of comments made, one staffer said, “Younger staff in particular are exploited and not rewarded financially.” Another said, “Straight women and lesbians get sexist treatment from gay men at HRC.”

HRC President Chad-Rosa (I make 400K @ year)  Parks-Griffin responded to the report noting that the organization is already “aggressively” pursuing ways to improve its workplace environment:

“Like many organizations and companies throughout our country, HRC has embarked on a thoughtful and comprehensive diversity and inclusion effort with the goals of better representing the communities we serve — and hiring, nurturing and retaining a workforce that not only looks like America but feels respected and appreciated for the hard work they do every day.” […]

“As we fully anticipated, the report flagged problem areas that the organization has already begun to tackle aggressively,” Griffin said in his statement. “We’ll continue to address them, one by one, as any serious organization recognizing these challenges would.”

Not only is this old well known news to everyone.  But HRC had  to waste THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS on a “commissioned” diversity study to find out what everyone has known for 20 years?   If it weren’t so sad it would be almost comical that HRC actually needed  a *report* to figure this out.

It really just shows exactly how tone-deaf HRC is to the real LGBT community.

Republicans Refuse To Give Up, Attempt Last Ditch Effort To Stall Executive Order On LGBT Federal Contractors

GOP SCUM

 

Now that the Department of Labor has issued its final rule on the implementation of President Obama’s executive order banning federal contractors from discriminating against LGBT employees. House Republicans seeing a chance to screw with not only Obama but also the gays are now trying to stall the order’s enactment.

Via Buzzfeed:

House Education and Workforce Committee Chair John Kline, a Republican from Minnesota, and Rep. Tim Walberg, the Republican chair of the Subcommittee on Workforce Protections, made the request for a 60-day public comment period for the rule in a letter to the head of the office responsible for enforcing it. “[W]e understand the public was not afforded an opportunity to submit comments as provided under the Administrative Procedures Act (APA),” Kline and Walberg wrote to Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs Director Patricia Shiu. “Public comment is essential to all rulemakings.” After laying out their argument, they write, “We therefore urge OFCCP to withdraw its final regulation submitted to [Office of Management and Budget] … so the process for implementing [Obama’s executive order] can be done with the transparency and public participation typically afforded under the APA.” They ask for a response from Shiu “no later than December 17, 2014.”

This is a preview of what the next 2 years will be like. Add the Senate to the House.

There is something seriously mentally wrong with Republican politicians.  And worse the people who voted them into office

 

KY Dem Gov Steve Beshear’s Hired Lawyers: Gay Marriage Stops Rednecks From Having Babies

Fuck You!

The private lawyers that Kentucky’s Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear has hired to defend the states unconstitutional ban on same-sex marriage have filed papers saying that the ban should be retained because only “man-woman” couples can naturally procreate — and the state has an interest in ensuring that they do.

Appealing a federal judge’s decision that the state’s ban violates the constitutional guarantee of equal protection under the law, Beshear’s hired counsel say Kentucky has a legitimate interest in encouraging procreation to support “long-term economic stability through stable birth rates.”

U.S. District Judge John G. Heyburn II in February struck down Kentucky’s law and constitutional amendment banning the recognition of same-sex marriages performed in other states, saying Kentucky had offered no rational basis for treating gay and lesbian couple’s differently.l.

In a 32-page appeal, attorney Leigh Gross Latherow says Kentucky has an interest in maintaining birth rates, which, if allowed to fall, can induce economic crises because of the reduced demand for good and services and the reduction of the work force. She cited recent dips in the economies of Germany and Japan tied to declines in their birth rates.

The appeal doesn’t explain how allowing gays to marry would reduce the birth rate among heterosexual couples. It also doesn’t address gay couples who give birth through surrogates or other alternatives.

Heyburn had rejected the procreation argument, saying exclusion of same-sex couples on that ground “makes just as little sense as excluding post-menopausal (heterosexual) couples or infertile couples on procreation grounds.”

But the state’s appeal says that just because “man-woman couples who are infertile or incapable of naturally procreating are allowed to marry does not nullify the rational basis for a man-woman marriage classification.” The state says laws don’t have to be perfectly symmetrical to past muster under the equal-protection clause.

The state’s brief says “the power to define and regulate marriage is one uniquely within the realm of the state legislatures.”

It also says that Heyburn erroneously determined that Kentucky’s 1,222,125 voters who passed the constitutional amendment banning gay marriage “lacked a single rational basis for Kentucky’s adoption of the traditional man-woman marriage model.”

“The institution of the man-woman marriage is deeply rooted in the history and traditions of our country,” the appeal says. “A right to same-sex marriage is not.
