The FBI has released it’s annual report on hate crimes showing that, broadly, hate crimes rose 2.7 percent in 2019 . While crimes targeting people for their sexual orientation ticked up only slightly it shows a higher percentage of hate crimes were perpetrated against gay men for the third straight year raising from 57.8% in 2017 to 61.8% in 2019.

Hate crimes against lesbians, bisexual, and transgender  individuals remained unchanged.

LGBT Hate Groups Received Millions of Dollars in COVID-19 PPP Small Business Loans

LGBT Hate Groups Received Millions of Dollars in COVID-19 PPP Small Business Loans

It has been exposed that LGBT hate groups, anti-immigration groups and anti-Muslim groups have received MILLIONS of dollars in government-aid backed Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) , intended for small businesses with 10 or fewer employees that have been harmed by the ongoing COVID-19 epidemic.

Via The New Civil Rights Movement:

The groups include the anti-Muslim organization The Center for Security Policy; the two anti-immigrant groups, the Center for Immigration Studies and the Federation for American Immigration Reform; and three rabidly anti-LGBTQ groups, the American Family Association (AFA), Liberty Counsel and the Pacific Justice Institute (PJI).

The  Liberty Counsel received somewhere between $350,000 and $1 million from the PPP program while listing they had no jobs to retain . It is unclear what Liberty Counsel was planning to do with its hundreds of thousands in government loans but I am sure we can all guess.

The largest loan went to the anti-LGBT hate group the American Family Association, which was allotted between $1 million and $2 million to support 124 jobs.

In its 2017 tax filing, which is the latest available, the AFA reported revenues exceeding $18.4 million, net assets of about $30 million.

In 2010 AFA’s most notorious wingnut Bryan Fischer blamed gay men for being Nazis and causing the holocaust.

“Homosexuality gave us Adolph Hitler, and homosexuals in the military gave us the Brown Shirts, the Nazi war machine and six million dead Jews.” — Bryan Fischer, AFA director of issue analysis for government and public policy, 2010.

Other AFA statements on homosexuality include:

“This [policy] means a man can simply say he ‘feels like a woman today’ and enter the women’s restroom … even if young girls and women are already in there. Target’s policy is exactly how sexual predators get access to their victims. And with Target publicly boasting that men can enter women’s bathrooms, where do you think predators are going to go?”
— Tim Wildmon, April 2016.

“Homosexuality is a poor and dangerous choice, and has been proven to lead to a litany of health hazards to not only the individuals but also society as a whole.” — AFA Action Alert, July 20, 2012.

“The homosexual movement is a progressive outgrowth of the sexual revolution of the past 40 years and will lead to the normalization of even more deviant behavior.” —Don Wildmon, AFA website.

“Homosexuals are rarely monogamous and have as many as 300 to 1,000 sexual partners over the course of a lifetime. … [T]he risk of sexual abuse in a homosexual household is much greater than in a heterosexual household.” – Bryan Fischer Web post, “The Truth about Gay Marriage and Civil Unions,” 2006

This Gay Latino Trump Supporter Will Make Your Brain Explode

This Gay Latino Trump Supporter Will Make Your Brain Explode

Pete Gomez, a gay metal sheet worker was interviewed by the Fort Worth Star Telegram about his support for Donald Trump, who held a rally in Dallas last week.

Said Gomez:

I definitely have a different mentality of using your brain and not your heart because your heart will deceive you. And I just want everyone to know in the LGBT community that Trump is for us. The 2nd Amendment is for us. We need to stand with this president because he’s the only one who is helping us restore this nation back to everything we’ve ever had which is so amazing. We literally are going to make America more greater than it’s ever been and keep it that way.”

If you’re saying shit like “make America more greater” then you definitely are not thinking with your brain.

This just proves that there are stupid uneducated gay people just like there are stupid uneducated straight people. 

Dozens of Straight Pride Attendees Drowned Out By Hundreds of Counter-Protestors in Modesto, CA

Dozens of Straight Pride Attendees Drowned Out By Hundreds of Counter-Protestors in Modesto, CA

Despite being denied a permit for a Straight Pride event in Modesto, CA the organizers secretly planed to go forward with it and announced Saturday afternoon that the location of the event would be at the Planned Parenthood on McHenry Avenue in Modesto.  

The information was previously kept secret supposedly because of alleged and unsubstantiated threats of violence.

While only a few dozen Straight Pride participants actually showed up to the clandestine event, they were met by over 200 counter-protesters who shouted them down carrying signs, with phrases like “If being gay was a choice I’d be gayer” and “This was not on my gay agenda.”

Don Grundmann, the founder of the National Straight Pride Coalition, said he’s proud of his few supporters who showed up for standing up for their right to free speech and his group’s fundamental principals.

“Masculinity, femininity, the natural family of man, woman children, babies, born and unborn western civilization, Caucasians and all people, all of those are basic foundations that are under attack,” Grundmann ranted

Max Reed a member of the Modesto Non-Violent Collective, who helped organize the counter-protest that began at Enslen Park and then left to confront Straight Pride supporters in front of Planned Parenthood said “This community is standing together to reject this group and what they represent,” Reed said. This is not what Modesto is about. We’re about inclusion and diversity and unity.”

Other counter-protesters say they hope their strong turnout sends a message to Grundmann and his Straight Pride supporters across the country.

“When people want to come into your own backyard and spread a message that you don’t agree with then you have a right to stand up against that too,” Wendy Byrd, President of the NAACP Modesto Stanislaus Branch, said.

Joshua Home Child Abuse

Christian Conversion Therapy Camp Owners Charged W/ Trafficking, Abuse and Forced Labor Of Underage Boys

NBC – KX0N News affiliate reports:

More than a year after boys were removed from a nonprofit in Burnet County, the couple who ran it are facing trafficking charges. A grand jury indicted Gary Wiggins, 49, and his wife Meghann Wiggins, 34, on Trafficking of Persons charges.

They are both accused of “knowingly” trafficking four underage boys and “through force, fraud or coercion” making them “engage in forced labor or services.” The two ran Joshua Home, which officials described as a place that “purports to be a residential home for troubled boys.”

According to the indictment, the trafficking allegedly occurred between May 17, 2018 and July 25, 2018. Eight boys between the ages of 10 and 17 were removed after a multi-agency investigation into allegations of abuse, neglect, labor violations, fraud, licensing violations and human trafficking.

The couple had previously run the Blessed Hope Boys Academy in Robertsdale, Ala., in 2016 which was closed after a 20/20 investigation in which boys who’d been sent there spoke out against the abuse that included forced exercise, solitary confinement, withholding food, and various conversion therapy torture tactics.

One boy Lucas Greenfield who was sent there for being gay told 20/20 Lucas Greenfield whose mother sent him to Blessed Hope because he is gay, told 20/20 that Gary Wiggins regularly beat they boys. “He took off his belt and started swinging,” and told them: “I’m going to get the demon out of you and make you straight.”

The Wiggins’ remain in custody at the Burnet County Jail. They are both being held on $100,000 bond.

Trump's Dept of Labor Proposes Rule Allowing Federal Contractors To Discriminate Against LGBTs And Others

Trump’s Dept of Labor Proposes Rule Allowing Federal Contractors To Discriminate Against LGBTs And Others

The new rule to let businesses with federal contracts cite religious objections as a valid reason to discriminate against their workers on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sex, LGBT status, and other characteristics — thereby skirting worker protections created by past presidents.

Bloomberg Law reports:

The proposal would cement current exemptions that “religion-exercising organizations” can use to shield themselves from bias claims for hiring decisions and other actions motivated by religious belief. That includes religious entities as well as “closely held” companies acting in accordance with an owner’s religious beliefs, two senior DOL officials said.

The proposed rule has been pending review by the White House’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs since April, after it was published in the Labor Department’s regulatory agenda in October 2018. The proposal will be open for public comments until Sept. 16.

In Detroit, an armed white supremacist group called the National Socialist Movement (NSM) descended on the annual Motor City Pride Festival, where they held placards, gave Nazi salutes and displayed armbands with swastikas.

Photos from the event, which was attended by thousands of LGBT+ supporters, showed a group of around 10 neo-Nazis marching surrounded by police officers.

U.S. State Department Refuses Permission To Embassies on Foreign Soil To Fly Rainbow PRIDE Flag

NBC News reports:

The Trump administration is rejecting requests from U.S. embassies to fly the rainbow pride flag on embassy flagpoles during June, LGBT Pride Month, three American diplomats tell NBC News.

The U.S. embassies in Israel, Germany, Brazil and Latvia are among those that have requested permission from Trump’s State Department to fly the pride flag on their flagpoles and have been denied, diplomats said.

Although the pride flag can and is being flown elsewhere on embassy grounds, including inside embassies and on exterior walls, the decision not to allow it on the official flagpole stands in contrast to President Donald Trump’s claim to be a leader in supporting LGBT rights overseas.

Our advice to Embassies abroad. Don’t ask for permission. Do it anyway.

Fuck the Trump administration.
