FRC’s Tony Perkins: You Live In Fear Of My HATERPOLOOZA Values Voters Summit

 

In a press release yesterday white supremacist-affiliated hate group leader Tony Perkins sent out a post crowing about his annual HATERPALOOZER Values Voters Summit which begins today with a guest cast straight from hell including: Mike Huckabee, Rick Santorum, Alan West, Sandy Rios, Todd Stames and of course whittle Tony himself.

“Pop Quiz: What annual event has the Left so worried that they are spending tens of thousands in advertising dollars to stop? You guessed it; the Values Voters Summit. In the Washington Post, leftwing groups including GLAAD, (known for its failed campaign to fire Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson,) the anti-Christian Southern Poverty Law Center, and the George Soros-funded ‘Faithful America,’ signed onto a three-quarters page ad demanding that speakers ‘not attend the Values Voter Summit.’ The ad complains that I described homosexual activist Dan Savage’s attacks on Christians as ‘disgusting.’ I believe most people would be hard pressed to disagree with my assertion. The Left is clearly discouraged by the effectiveness of the Values Voter Summit and is willing to fork over a lot of money to stifle speech they disagree with.”

Actually the exact quote that Dan Savage memorably said in the Washington Post was, “Tony Perkins sits on a pile of dead kids.”

That is the truth and thats your legacy, Tony.

 

Michele Bachmann: Gays Want Age Laws Abolished So They Can Prey On Children – Audio

Michele Bachman wicked witch

In an attempt to save her political career for a 2016 run and to make “gay” the wedge issue that it has always been for the GOP.  Michele Bachmann is warning everyone that the gay community will “abolish age of consent laws… so that adults will be able to freely prey on little children sexually.”

Right Wing Watch

During a Wednesday appearance on the conservative radio show “Faith & Liberty,” Rep. Michele Bachmann accused the “gay community” of pushing “deviancy,” “tyranny” and child rape. The Minnesota Republican warned that the gay community will “abolish age of consent laws, which means we will do away with statutory rape laws so that adults will be able to freely prey on little children sexually. That’s the deviance that we’re seeing embraced in our culture today.” She also predicted that gay rights advocates will legalize polygamy and enact “hate speech laws across the United States” in order to bring about “the rise of tyranny.”

Bachmann is shameless in her vicious lies. But I tell you whats shameful is that all our gay organizations remain silent and never stand up to them and demand accountability and apologies for horrible lies and propaganda like this and play the “let them talk ther’ll hang themselves” game.  Well guess what?  They don’t! They have let the Bachmanns’, Perkins, and the whole bigot bunch talk for decades and they will never stop.  Its time to hold them accountable for thier comments.  And its time for Gay Inc. to get off their asses to do so. Tell me didn’t we at one time have an organization called GLAAD that was supposed to deal with defamation? Do your fucking job already and stop throwing award galas.

GLAAD Announces It’s 2014 Media Award Nominations. Meh. – LIST

GLAAD meh

GLAAD has announced the nominees for its annual Media Awards today, featuring 130 nominees in 29 categories and THANKFULLY this year I dodged the bullet once again and was not nominated so I want to thank GLAAD for keeping my integrity and reputation intact.

Other glaring omissions this year include: No Outstanding Web Series category.  Warehouse 13 and Under the Dome snubbed in Television. The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel left out of the Movies category. The Amazing Race who have had numerous gay couples left at the gate in Best Reality Show.  Born This Way and Les Invisibles didn’t make the Best Documentary cut  (But the did nominate the rather controversial and borderline homophobic Valentine Road)

And far be it from me to be picky BUT,  in the Outstanding Mini-Series, BBC’s In The Flesh they purposely avoided saying that the lead character was gay.  That is nothing to be awarded for.

Only two award ceremonies will be held this year due to GLAAD’s financial restraints (They are kind of  broke now and Gay Inc.’s  poor relations) on April 12 in Los Angeles, and May 3 in New York.

Below is the full list.

The Bachelor Juan Pablo Galavis Apologizes TWICE – Did GLAAD Write His Second Apology?

Juan Pablo

“People,

I want to apologize to all the people I may have offended because of my comments on having a Gay or Bisexual Bachelor. The comment was taken out of context. If you listen to the entire interview, there’s nothing but respect for Gay people and their families. I have many gay friends and one of my closest friends who’s like a brother has been a constant in my life especially during the past 5 months. The word pervert was not what I meant to say and I am very sorry about it. Everyone knows English is my second language and my vocabulary is not as broad as it is in Spanish and, because of this, sometimes I use the wrong words to express myself. What I meant to say was that gay people are more affectionate and intense and for a segment of the TV audience this would be too racy to accept. The show is very racy as it is and I don’t let my 5 year old daughter watch it. Once again, I’m sorry for how my words were taken. I would never disrespect anyone.”

Sinceramente,

Juan Pablo Galavis.

So here we have Juan Pablo blaming English being his second language, his comments being taken out of context (even though there is audio), and or course stating that he has “gay friends” to get out of it. One has to wonder what context J.P.G. actually meant to use the word “pervert?” in.

Of course this apology only happened after GLAAD possibly smelling money from ABC reached and some free publicity reached out to J.P.G. and then reported his apology on their website which is totally different than the apology above that Juan Pablo Galavis posted on his Facebook page.

The apology on GLAAD’s website reads:

“I have heard from many gay Latinos today who are hurt because of what I said and I apologize. I know gay parents and I support them and their families. They are good parents and loving families. I am a father and I know the feel of being a father, why wouldn’t I want my gay friends to also be happy parents? I also want gay and lesbian youth to know that it is fine to be who you are. Gay or straight, Black or White, Latin or American, what matters here is to respect who we are. I look forward to meeting with gay and lesbian families as well as Monica and Wilson from GLAAD. Gay and lesbian people, and the children they are raising, wrongfully face discrimination and I want them to know that I’m on their side.”

Whats really interesting is if you read the Facebook apology and GLAAD’s version even though they are different don’t  even sound like the same person wrote them.  Do they?

Did GLAAD help write this apology specifically for their website and release?

Of course Juan Pablo will be meeting in Los Angeles this week with Monica Trasandes, a leads GLAAD’s Latino and Spanish-Language Media Program, and GLAAD’s Wilson Cruz who never met a piece of publicity he didn’t like.

FRC Hate Group Leader Tony Perkins: GLAAD Is Evil!

Tony Perkins is a Homo

“Although the victory belonged to the Robertsons, the real winners may be the American people — who finally witnessed homosexual activists for what they are: intolerant bullies. As FRC has said for years, the goal of GLAAD and others is to silence anyone who dares challenge the idea that homosexual behavior should be celebrated. We’ve seen these vicious tactics used against wedding florists, bakers, photographers, sports journalists, students, and teachers who’ve been fired, hauled into court, fined, suspended, and ordered to violate their religious beliefs by endorsing same-sex ‘marriage.’ For once, the American people have stood up and shouted, ‘enough!'” – Family Research Council hate group leader and white supremacist Tony Perkins, via email.

I wonder how much GLAAD paid Tony to give them some good press?

 

 

AFA’s Bryan Fischer: ‘Duck Dynasty’ Controversy Proves ‘We (The Bigots) Are The Mainstream’

Bryan Fischer lunatic

 

Milking the Duck Dynasty debacle for all it’s worth, Bryan FISTer Fischer of the American Family Association spoke with a caller about the “Duck Dynasty” controversy and declared that the main lesson of the entire fiasco was: – “that Phil Robertson and the American people like you and me that agree with him, that we are the mainstream. It’s the gay activists, it’s the gay lobby, they’re the ones that are on the fringe … [The ‘Duck Dynasty’ cast] represent the values that you and I and the great majority of Americans share”

Of course Fischer as usual is full of shit.  The only thing that that the Duck Dynasty flap proved was that our multi-million dollar LGBT organizations, namely GLAAD and the Human Rights Campaign are not able to truly handle these issues and should stick to throwing galas and hobnobbing with celebrities and politicians which is a very sad fact indeed.

 

GLAAD Denounces A&E’s Ducky Dynasty Decision While Variety Reports They Were In On it.

GLAAD sucks

 

GLAAD has finally issued a statement over A&E’s decision to reinstate anti-gay and racist “reality show” patriarch Phil Roberson of Duck Dynasty.

Via press release:

“Phil Robertson should look African American and gay people in the eyes and hear about the hurtful impact of praising Jim Crow laws and comparing gay people to terrorists. If dialogue with Phil is not part of next steps then A+E has chosen profits over African American and gay people – especially its employees and viewers.”

Variety reports though that GLAAD was in talks with A&E, knew about the decision beforehand and had promised the cable giant that their would be no major backlash.

A+E Networks CEO Nancy Dubuc and other top execs had extensive conversations with the Robertson clan about how to move forward with the show after the decision to suspend Phil Robertson sparked a furor about his right to voice his opinions.

The execs also kept in close contact with reps for GLAAD, the NAACP and other orgs in an effort to find a path to allowing the show to continue. 

Before A+E announced its reversal on Robertson’s suspension and plans for a PSA campaign aimed at promoting tolerance, GLAAD and NAACP were apprised of the cabler’s decision — ensuring that there would be no immediate backlash from the two prominent advocacy orgs.

Of course GLAAD’s press release above was written a full 12 hours after A&E’s announced their decision to re-instate Robertson and after gauging the reaction of the LGBT community. But don’t be fooled.  GLAAD was  actively involved with the decision to re-instate Robertson and they knew all about it beforehand.  Their latest press release was nothing more than smoke and mirrors in an attempt to save face and I am sure it will be the last one to be released about this whole Duck Dynasty debacle.

 

 

 

Here It Comes – FRC’s Tony Perkins Brags About Duck Dynasty Win Over The Nasty Intollerant Gays

Tony Perkins FRC KKK

“The attacks on Phil Robertson revealed to the American people that the push to redefine marriage is less about the marriage altar than it is fundamentally altering America’s moral, political and cultural landscape. A&E Network’s reversal in the face of backlash is quite telling to the American people who are growing tired of GLAAD and cultural elites who want to silence people and remove God and His word from every aspect of public life.

“The goal of GLAAD is to silence anyone who dare challenge the idea that homosexuality is normal. However, the Robertson family’s refusal to cower to GLAAD’s bullying and the ensuing backlash to the suspension, unlike anything since Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day, finally forced A&E Network to withdraw the suspension. We’ve also seen these intimidation tactics used against wedding florists, bakers, photographers who have been hauled into court, fined and even ordered to violate their religious beliefs by participating in same-sex weddings.

“Where is the fairness there? Where’s the tolerance? There is none. This is why hundreds of thousands of Americans had enough and took a stand by signing petitions in support of Phil Robertson and the right of Christians to quote the Bible. – Proven  KKK and white supremacist group affiliated Family Research Council President Tony Perkins.

Prepare for more of this in the weeks to come.

Thank you GLAAD and HRC for being such LOSERS,

 

 

Duck Dynasty Fans Create National Chick-Phil-A Day – QUACK! QUACK! (I told you so) QUACK!

Chick-Phil-A

 

And here we go!

In response to A&E’s recent suspension of Duck Dynasty’s patriarch Phil Robertson over his racial and anti-gay remarks, groups around the country are beginning to promote Jan. 21 as National Chick-Phil-A Day. Those that support Robertson are encouraged to wear camo and/or Duck Commander gear and eat at a Chick-Fil-A restaurant on that day.

The movement (?) has more than 25,000 sign ups for their event, and wants all freedom of speech and God loving Americans to support the restaurant chain and the show.

“Join a national movement in supporting two of the biggest brands to have, in recent history, come under fire for sharing an opinion on personal faith-based beliefs,” the group’s Facebook page said. “Join us on January 21st as we make a loud and undeniable statement… we will no longer be silent.”

Chick-fil-A who knows a little something about anti-lgbt controversies, has issued a statement that the restaurant chain “is in no way affiliated with or sponsoring the Chick-Phil-A Day events”

QUACK! QUACK! (I told you so!) QUACK!

Is Duck Dynasty Becoming The Next Chick-fil-A Disaster for HRC and GLAAD?

LOSER

 

Well here we go again kids.

Learning absolutely nothing from the Chick-fil-A disaster of 2011 both GLAAD and HRC are falling back into their “failure to follow-up mode” again this time regarding the hate speech of Phil Robertson of the A&E’s “reality” show Duck Dynasty and allowing the right-wing to twist it into a “freedom of speech” and “freedom of religion” debate instead of what its really about.

You see the same thing happened in 2011 with Chick-fil-A. In the beginning it wasn’t about “gay marriage”.  It was really all about Chick-fil-A donating money to anti-LGBT hate groups.   The problem was that after our illustrious overpaid leaders fired the first shot over it the religious right and the GOP sized the opportunity to make it about same-sex marriage.  After that did HRC and GLAAD actively fight back and try to set the record straight and put it back on track? No. They got quiet and waited for it all to calm down and let the haters control the conversation and spin it to their advantage.

Now a year later the same thing is happening again.

If you fire the first shot you need to be prepared to fight to the end.  At this moment every anti-LGBT right wing hate group, GOP politician and tea party loon is using any media outlet they can to twist Robertson’s hate speech into a “freedom of religion” and “freedom of speech” issue and trying  making us seem intolerant and the bad guys.  And they are beginning to succeed because HRC and GLAAD are either to afraid, or too inept, or just too utterly PC to media blitz back and  fight back and stop their spin to set the record straight .

Its becoming Chick-fil-A all over again.

And while we are on the subject of our wonderful organizations where in the world is Rae (Carmen Santiago) Carey and the Task Force on this? Have they even released a statement?  Can someone PLEASE tell what exactly what the Task Force’s “task” is and what Rae Carey does to justify over a $250k+ a year salary from an organization that raises only 8 million dollars in a good year and does nothing?

With leaders and organizations like this is it any wonder we’re still second class citizens?
