WORLD NEWS – Turkish Teen Arrested For Plotting to Blow Up Gay Club In Germany

On Thursday German state police arrested Yusuf Erkocoglu, a Turkish teenager caught planning to blow up a gay club in Frankfurt. German media outlets reported that the 17-year-old suspect has both Turkish and German citizenship.

The US government played a role in preventing Erkocoglu ‘s suspected attack, according to the intelligence source in Germany. United States Ambassador to Germany, Richard Grenell, told the Jerusalem Post : “The US will always work with our German Government partners to thwart acts of terror.

The rise of Islamic terror networks in Germany has created new dangers for Germany, the United States and Jewish and Israeli institutions in the Federal Republic.

Florida Man Sentenced to Death for Killing Gay Couple in Wilton Manors

Florida Man Sentenced to Death for Killing Gay Couple in Wilton Manors

A Florida man, who described gay people as a “disgrace,” has been given the death penalty for murdering a gay couple he met on Craigslist back in 2010.

Peter Avsenew, who described gay people as a “disgrace,” was convicted last year of murdering Kevin Adams and Steven Powell (pictured above) at their home in Wilton Manors.  Adams and Powell were found shot dead and wrapped in blankets the day after Christmas in 2010.

Avsenew, a male sex worker, met the couple after he placed an ad on Craigslist. He moved in with the couple of weeks before their deaths.

The prosecution alleged that Avsenew was found with the couple’s car, an SUV, adding that he had used their credit cards.

Avsenew’s mother turned him in to police after he arrived at her home in central Florida unexpectedly and then made suspicious comments to her.

She also testified against him in court.

Avsenew  who showed no remorse over the murders, sent a hand-written letter to Broward County Judge Ilona Holmes, following his conviction.

The letter read:

“It is my duty as a white man to cull the weak and timid from existence. I will always stand up for what I believe in and eradicate anything in my way. Homosexuals are a disgrace to mankind and must be put down. These weren’t the first and won’t be the last.”

The date of execution has not yet been set. 

Guyana Holds First LGBT Pride Parade - Video

Guyana Holds First LGBT Pride Parade – Video

Guyana held its first gay pride parade, with the country’s gay rights activists accusing the three-year old government as well as the opposition of breaking their election campaign promises to outlaw discrimination against vulnerable groups.

“We are saying enough of the rhetoric, enough of the promises. It is time to make good on the legislative changes that we heard about from both parties in the 2015 elections and we want to see action and we want action now,” Joel Simpson told reporters. He acknowledged that the gay and lesbian community in Guyana is small but “our rights need to be respected like everybody else’s rights so this is a very, very visible way of demanding our rights.”

Several curious onlookers turned out at the starting point and along the route to get a glimpse at the parade by people of all walks of life, races, and ages. There were no major incidents such as such as sustained verbal exchanges between participants and onlookers..

Simpson, who heads the Society Against Sexual Orientation Discrimination (SASOD), said the parade was incident-free. “The parade was incident free. There was a lot of chatter on Social Media here and there and so on but Guyana did us well, Guyana did us proud. We had a completely incident-free, safe, non-violent, first ever Guyana gay pride parade,” he said.

Moments before the gay pride parade, which included a number of male cross-dressers and lesbians, moved off opposition People’s Progressive Party (PPP) parliamentarian, Priya Manickchand called on President David Granger to hold meaningful talks with interest groups to deal with concerns among the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community. “I would say we have to sit down at serious conversations, countrywide conversations where the environment is open and honest to examine the issue as a whole,” she said. She added that LGBT persons contribute to the Guyanese society, and at the same time the concerns by the rest of the country should be addressed as part of an bottom-up education approach.

Guyana which was the site of the infamous Reverend Jim Jones and the Jonestown mass suicide in 1978 is the only country in South America where homosexuality remains criminalized, with sentences which  can include life imprisonment, although they are rarely enforced..

 

Homeland Security Investigates Facebook Terror Threat Against Columbus Pride

 

The Columbus Police Department and Homeland Security are looking into a Facebook post that called for the killing of LGBTQ people, ahead of this weekend’s Pride Festival. The post was made to a page dedicated to the event; the poster wrote, “I hope this event turns out like the Boston Marathon a few year’s (sic) back.” The post continues with, “All [LGBTQ people] should be killed or at least relocated.”

Thursday it was confirmed the poster was an employee of the Columbus City School district. The district responded to our inquiry by saying, “We have also been made aware of his inappropriate comments and are working to address the situation.” There has been no word on what disciplinary action has or will be taken; the employee appears to have used a personal Facebook account to make the comment. Columbus Police say they are looking into the post, and have informed Homeland Security which is now also getting involved. –  via NBC News 

Chris Dodds, 48, who’s Facebook page was extremely alt-right and white supremacist leaning has since been removed by either Facebook or Dodds himself.  

Dodd is a garage assistant supervisor who has worked for the school district since 2004.

Columbus City Schools is working  on his termination

“Columbus City Schools values and celebrates its diversity. Please know that we are working with authorities to address this matter and his actions. We do not tolerate discrimination of any kind,” said Scott Varner, a spokesman for the school district. “We are currently working toward Mr. Dodds’ termination.”

The school district does have a policy on free speech in non-instructional settings that states, “The professional staff member’s expression must be balanced against the interests of this District. The following guidelines are adopted … to avoid situations in which the professional staff member’s expression could conflict with the District’s interests.

More than 400 teachers, staff, students plan to march in Saturday’s Columbus Pride Parade to counter Dodds hate.

Gay Man Denied Entry To USA At Canadian Border Because Of SCRUFF Profile

Gay Man Denied Entry To USA At Canadian Border Because Of SCRUFF Profile

Gay Man Denied Entry To USA At Canadian Border Because Of SCRUFF Profile

A Vancouver, British Columbia man  was denied entry to the U.S. after a U.S. Customs and Border Patrol officer demanded he unlock his phone, searched his computer, and looked at his Scruff profile and other sex-related accounts before he was turned away at the border and denied entry to the United States.

Canada’s Daily XTRA reports:

The officer suspected the man was a sex worker because he found messages from the man saying he was “looking for loads,” and assumed it meant he was soliciting sex for cash.

While the misunderstanding might sound funny, it underscores the bitter reality that non-Americans have very few rights at the border, and that even suspicion of criminal behavior can be used to deny non-Americans entry.

André, a 30-year-old Vancouver set decorator who declined to give his full name for fear of retaliation from US Customs, describes the experience as “humiliating.”

The customs officer also reportedly looked at his profile on BBRT, a barebacking hook-up site, and emails attached to a Craigslist account containing sex ads.

While Americans have an absolute right of entry into the country, they can still be detained or have their electronic devices seized,” writes Daily XTRA’s Rob Salerno. “A non-American who is asked to hand over their devices and passwords is faced with the dilemma of protecting their privacy or potentially being denied entry to the US.”

Wonder if CBP will let Milo into Canada the next time he travels internationally.

The Bitch Is Bachmann! – Michele Bachmann: Gays, Muslims, and BLM Want To “Seek Domination Over American Freedoms’

 Michele Bachmann: Gays, Muslims, and BLM Want To "Seek Domination Over American Freedoms’

 

Former Republican Congresswoman and current Deplorable Swamp Trump adviser Michele “Crazy Eyes” Bachmann has returned and is claiming that gay people are working hand-in-hand with Islamist terrorists and the Black Lives Matter movement to destroy American’s values.

In an interview with the extremist right-wing website Wingnut WorldNetDaily Bachmann states:

Once liberties fall, the groups break with each other in a race to impose their particular views on the American populace,” she said. “Causing liberties to fall is a long-term project, and they will use whatever allies they can get to realize that phase of their goals.

People understand Islam abhors homosexuality, yet they often join forces in protests with gay activists. The answer is simple, Black Lives Matters, the gay agenda, as well as Islamic supremacism, all seek domination over American freedoms.

They cannot reach their aims separately, but they can realize the fall of individual liberties if they work together. Once liberties fall, the groups break with each other in a race to impose their particular views on the American populace causing liberties to fall is a long-term project, and they will use whatever allies they can get to realize that phase of their goals.

There has been no news if her husband Marcus “Buffy” Bachmann is involved in the “domination” attempt.

Gay Blood Ban Art Installation Near Chelsea Market In NYC Proves Powerful Point

Gay Blood Ban Art At Chelsea Market

 

Two dumpsters filled with fake blood bags has been set up near the Chelsea Market to raise awareness on the FDA’s outdated and stigmatizing gay blood ban against gay men.

“Gay men are still discriminated against, they’re not allowed to donate blood,” said Mike Devlin, Creative Director at FCB Health.

Devlin and FCB Health created this art installation in partnership with The Gay Men’s Health Crisis to raise awareness about the thousands of pints of blood he says are lost every year due to the gay blood ban.

For decades, the Food and Drug Administration prohibited men who have sex with other men from donating blood.

Last year health officials eased the ban — now gay men have to remain celibate for a full year before donating

“As the universal donor I’m O negative. I feel like my blood could have a lot of use, it’s a civil injustice to a large population that we’re unable to donate our blood,” said one man.

The donation issue made headlines again after the Orlando nightclub shooting — when dozens of gay friends of victims wanted to donate blood — but discovered they couldn’t.

And while the FDA said in the wake of the shooting that they “empathize” with those who want to donate, they said the scientific evidence was not available to support an alternative to the current deferral policy.

“Every pint of blood that gets donated is actually screened, everyone. Mine yours anyone who donates, so the fact that gay men are still barred from actually participating in something that is very much a human thing —to donate blood to friends and family — it doesn’t make sense,” added Mike Devlin.

Organizers behind this blood project hope this Installation creates an image for the public to see just how much blood is potentially lost.

“It’s a waste of a very important source I think, we could use much better, I don’t think there’s a reason to ban it,” said Yoev, another passerby.

Officials from the Gay Men’s Health Crisis say they’re continuing to push the FDA to accelerate their review of the ban so that everyone’s blood will be treated fairly.

Other countries without the ban have perfectly safe blood supplies. Italy, for example, replaced a similar ban fifteen years ago with an approach based on sexual practices. This “individual risk assessment” approach did not harm blood safety. In 2015 Argentina lifted its ban on blood donation from gay and bisexual men. Health Minister Daniel Gollán declared that the change is “scientifically and technically accurate” and based on a medical approach that replaces that old concept of ‘risk groups.’

British Spy Agency Head Apologizes For Agency’s Past Treatment Of Homosexuals

British Spy Agency Head Apologies For Agency's Past Treatment Of Homosexuals

The head of Britain’s digital espionage agency, GCHQ chief Robert Hannigan has apologized for the organization’s historic prejudice against homosexuals, that the agency’s ban on homosexuals had caused long-lasting psychological damage to many and were excluded from working there saying it failed to learn from the treatment of World War II codebreaker Alan Turing.

“The fact that it was common practice for decades reflected the intolerance of the times and the pressures of the Cold War, but it does not make it any less wrong and we should apologize for it,” Hannigan said. At GCHQ, Turing is now seen as a genius— “a problem-solver who was not afraid to think differently and radically,”

Homosexuals were not only discriminated in the agency’s past but were also fired from their jobs if found out and forced to go into “treatment” because of the belief that homosexuals were more easily corruptible and could be blackmailed because of their sexuality into giving up secrets or being turned to work for the other side.

Now more than five decades later in January of 2016 Britain’s MI5 spy agency was  named that country’s best employer for promoting lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender diversity.
