Skip to comments.Gay advocate sees rise of anti-gay groups joined with Tea Party

Interesting to me this morning to read renowned gay advocate David Badash's (New Civil Rights Movement in America)piece :
"Exposed: Koch Brothers, Karl Rove, Tea Party Coming Together With Anti-Gay Groups".
I have been wondering for some time whether the Tea Party would have any sort of effective power of political back-lash against the whole gay marriage/gay equality agenda. Now I see that Badash is recognizing this and stating his concerns about it openly.
I see signs here that a social conservative pushback - one that is organized and effective - may finally be in the offing.
In his piece Badash says:
"David Brody, the chief political reporter for CBN News admitted in an MSNBC Morning Joe discussion this morning that the Koch Brothers, Karl Rove, and the Tea Party are coming together with major anti-gay organizations and a hate group, the Family Research Council."
He then makes reference to a poll which finds the tea party is the "political group which hates gays most" [because 94% of them do not support same-sex marriage]. He continues:
"CBN News is the Christian Broadcasting Network, founded by televangelist Pat Robertson in 1961. Brody, author of the new book, The Teavangelicals: The Inside Story of How the Evangelicals and the Tea Party are Taking Back America, is also a political contributor to Glenn Becks GBTV network, according to CBN.
We talk about the pro-life groups but the pro-life groups are also the Tea Party type groups, in other words, theyre all coming together, Brody told the panel, explaining the close relationship between the Tea Party, Tea Party organizations, the Koch Brothers (who fund those groups,) anti-gay organizations, and anti-gay hate groups.
Heres my point: Concerned Women for America, a pro-life group, theyre working with Americans For Prosperity, Tim Phillips group, and so theyre doing a lot of bus tours together.
Americans For Prosperity was founded by the Koch Brothers.
While Concerned Women for America is not technically a named anti-gay hate group, they are mentioned in this Southern Poverty Law Center article, 18 Anti-Gay Groups and Their Propaganda at least five times. They, their work, and their people have been embedded in several other anti-gay hate groups, like the Family Research Council, Traditional Values Coalition, Americans for Truth About Homosexuality, and Chalcedon Foundation, the SPLC reports."
Badash then goes on to site the Southern Poverty Law Center's statistics on CWA and how it "equates homosexuality with pedophilia". Also that CWA dares to question the official numbers of anti-gay hate crimes [we know too well the number of hoaxes].
His piece can be read @ :
A quote he uses from CWA (which I happen to be in agreement with CWA on) is from the SPLC files:
Last year, CWA accused the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), a group that works to stop anti-gay bullying in schools, of using that mission as a cover to promote homosexuality in schools, adding that teaching students from a young age that the homosexual lifestyle is perfectly natural
will [cause them to] develop into adults who are desensitized to the harmful, immoral reality of sexual deviance.
I have never seen people so afraid their bathroom privileges will be taken away. Maybe if we give tese Cinderellas some Midol they’ll go away.
More desperation from the commie left. Sorry comrades! It ain’t working.
I’m against sodomy in the same way I am against cancer, AIDS, ecoli, or Sean Penn. All are diseases that ruin lives. Why is it that I can say I want cancer eradicated and be commended for it, but be labeled a bigot if I want homosexuality eradicated?
Southern Poverty Law Center is the hate group.
“Because 94% of them don’t SUPPORT Same-Sex Marriage.” Support, when mere tolerance became Hate.
Better that then those ‘log smugglin’ republicans
I see this fear as a good sign for our culture. I think some of it is reality-based, insofar as a long overdue backlash seems to be on the horizon.
What I have a problem with is the hate and vitriol coming from the homos themselves.
Most people are repulsed by their behavior. It's always been that way. They'd better get used to it, because trying to force people to see them differently has and never will work.
Rather than lash out violently at the normal heterosexuals, why not seek professional help? Maybe they could volunteer to re-institute themselves for their own good, and for the sake of those they're going to hurt someday because of their personal, uncontrollable inner rage.
Divide and conquer.
Gay v straight
white v non-white
successful v envious
religious v non-religious
etc. etc. etc.
Yesterday saw more non-assimilating muslim women with their children (are we paying for their upkeep?) in my little corner of the world...it’s like they’re multiplying. Imported specifically to conquer the US is what I thought.
I see your point but their side never will.
Yes indeed. And the author states openly that not supporting “marriage equality” is a sign of hate. It could not be for any normal and logical and natural reasons. I believe they are moving toward a nightmare which is of their own making: They have pushed too far and become too arrogant, and will be the cause of their own political demise.
Yes they are.
It sure can seem that way...
Of course: They upped the ante with each concession from our side.
It’s a pro-normal group not an anti-gay group.
I know, and its high time their side quit monopolizing the terminology.
Defending Traditional Marriage is labeled “anti-gay”.
So is protecting our kids from predators wanting to use the Boy Scouts as hunting grounds.
Obama is a Muzzie. Muzzie’s are allowed more than one spouse. I see him marrying Reggie Love on stage at the DNC.
Yep, and in the ‘70s they swore they just wanted the right to be left in peace.
Now they demand government provide them 72 “virgins”, here and now.
I like the way people throw Rove’s name around, as though he is the mastermind of the Tea Party. At best, Rove is sticking around to feel relevant, something that is going to become more and more difficult as the Tea Party grows in influence. At worst, Rove is allowing himself to be used by the Obamamedia to aggravate conservatives.
“Anti gays” means morally enlightened Christian groups and others who despise the gay agenda and the wholesale promotion of perversion. We would be more than happy to leave gays alone, if they would leave tradition and our children alone, and enjoy their perversion without inundating the rest of us with it. ...Not to deflate gay vitriol, but our social conservatism goes way beyond opposing the gay agenda. We aren’t narrow minded, single issue nuts like radical gays.
Good way of expressing it.
Oh, so what. “Anti-gay” groups and “hate” groups - the leftists simply mean any group that dares not to celebrate their idiocy.
I agree - I just hope this “movement” is real enough and can push back at them; they need to quit always having everything their way and on their terms.
