Van Jones: We Donít Want to See ĎNo Gaysí Signs in This Country
Cybercast News Service ^ | March 3, 2014 - 12:32 PM | Melanie Hunter

CNN co-host Van Jones, in a roundtable discussion on ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopolous” on Sunday, compared Arizona’s SB 1062—which has been vetoed by Gov. Jan Brewer—to the civil rights movement, saying, “We don’t want to see ‘no gays’ signs.”

“The one great achievement of the last century, we took out of American lexicon six words, ‘we don’t serve your kind here.’ We took those words out. It took the civil rights movement to do it. Dr. King got killed trying to do it. ‘We don’t serve your kind here’ is not acceptable anymore. Those ‘no blacks allowed’ signs came down. We don’t want to see ‘no gays’ signs allowed in this country,” said Jones, co-host of “Crossfire” and former green jobs czar for the Obama administration. “That’s not what this law would have done,” Rich Lowery, editor of the National Review, said in response. …

The people who own businesses that are being hijacked by same-sex couples and their liberal allies, the wedding photographers, the cake makers, and the like, have never said “no gays”. They have said that they cannot be enablers for morally repugnant behavior. They have objected to circumstances that not only chill but destroy free expression and free association. They also say that they thought slavery ended in the late 1800’s.

But this is not about getting all wedding photographers and cake makers to be happy to accept gay customers. This is a “two-fer” with gays: they get to rub their personal choices in the faces of people who find them repugnant and they get to destroy marriage as an institution.

Because government is no longer willing to defend marriage as God defines it, it is time to return marriage to the private sphere where it came from and always really belonged. Gays can get married but will not be able to force others to approve of it, and will not be able to force others into slavery to serve and enable their sinful actions. If liberals demand that we remove the Ten Commandments from government, they cannot attempt to cling to marriage in an attempt to destroy it. If we must have separation of church and state, let us also have a separation of marriage and state.

The Left is trying to replay the civil rights era of the blacks. It gave them lots of political mileage. If you can cast yourself as on the civil rights for gays team, you reap political benefits. You can use it to demonize those who are not on board for religious reasons. And, using the Alinsky method, you can destroy your opponents.

In the case of Van Jones, we can use the Alinsky method against him. We can say his Marxist politics is against the civil rights of all people. In the case of Marxism, the elite party members oppress the civil rights of the people they rule. With them there are no rights endowed to us by our Creator. Van Jones is the oppressor of all the people.

I really don’t think gay people were ever held as slaves, and I don’t think declining to recognize holy matrimony between two men is quite the same thing as posting a “No Gays” sign. It’s a nice, greasy little bit of propaganda, though. Jones is good at what he does, but what he does, isn’t good.

Hey Fanny Jones,

Does that mean that dry-cleaning shops in Harlem owned by blacks MUST accept the Klan outfits that KKK members bring them to be cleaned? If the shop owners perform pick-ups, MUST they stop by the most recent cross-burning to pick up the KKK outfits?

I suppose a man wearing a KKK outfit can board a bus in Harlem and everyone will just smile and say, “Well, that’s his right. It’s a free country,” right?

And gays, are you going to serve professionally everyone who comes into your salons etc., even TV evangelists who preach against homosexuality? I don’t think so. A female representative just lost her hair stylist because she supports the Biblical definition of marriage.

Guess what. I support the hair-stylist’s right to stop serving...for whatever reason. It may not be good for business, but that’s his/her right.

Same with every other business owner.

When the leftists are getting hammered economically because of their Socialist policies, they always turn to the social issues.

This is all about the 2014 elections.

Approaching 2016, watch radical feminism and women’s rights (focusing on lesbian rights) take center stage as Hitlery prepares to be coronated.

COMMUNISM

IN THE U. S. A.

The first of a series on the Communist conspiracy and its influence in this country as a whole, on religion, on education, on labor and on our government

^^No Communist, no matter how many votes he should secure in a national election, could, even if he would, become President of the present government. When a Communist heads the govern- ment of the United States — and that day will come just as surely as the sun rises— the government will not he a capitalist government hut a Soviet government, and hehind this government will stand the Red army to enforce the dictatorship of the proletariat, ‘’

Sworn statement of WILLIAM Z. FOSTER

Head of the Communist Party in the United States

If you ever find yourself in open debate with a Communist the facts here given can be used to destroy his arguments completely and expose him as he is for all to see.

Every citizen owes himself and his family the truth about Com- munism because the world today is faced with a single choice: To go Communist or not to go Communist. Here are the facts.

1 . What is Com-munism? A system by which one small group seeks to rule the world.

2. Has any nation ever gone Communist in a free election?

No. 3. Then how do the Communists try to get control?

Legally or illegally, any way they can. Communism’s first big victory was through bloody revolution. Every one since has been by military conquest, or internal corruption, or the threat of these.

CONSPIRACY is the basic method of Communism in countries it is trying to capture.

IRON FORCE is the basic method of Communism in countries it has already captured.

1 2. What would happen to my insurance? The Communists would take it over.

34. Where are their headquarters in the United States, and who is in charge?

Headquarters are at 35 East Twelfth Street, New York City. Wil- liam Z. Foster, of 1040 Melton Avenue, New York City, has the title of “Chairman of the Communist Party of the United States,” but Foster is actually just a figurehead under control of foreign operatives unseen by and unknown to rank and file Communists.

55. What is the emblem of the Communist Party in the United States? The hammer and sickle.

36. What is the emblem of the Communist Party in the Soviet Union? The hammer and sickle.

57. What is the flag of the Communist Party in the United States? The red flag, the same as that of all Communist Parties of the world.

49. What kind of people become Communists?

The real center of power in Communism is within the professional classes.

Of course, a few poor people respond to the Communist claim that it is a “working class movement.”

But taken as a whole the Party depends for its strength on the sup- port it gets from teachers, preachers, actors, writers, union officials, doctors, lawyers, editors, businessmen, and even from millionaires.

It took the civil rights movement to do it.

As menioned in related threads, many federal civil rights laws that have no basis in enumerated rights amended to the Constitution by the states are "void, and of no force, as Thomas Jefferson would probably put it.

Note that enumerated constitutional rights are the ones in the Bill of Rights and also the voting rights amendments.

What's going on is civil rights leaders have evidently never been correctly taught how constitutionally enumerated rights work, especially after FDR's activist justices "nuked" 10th Amendment-protected state sovereignty in the 1940s. So misguided civil rights leaders have inadvertently established many federal civil rights outside the framework of the Constitution, meaning without the required consent of the Constitution's Article V supermajority of states. And today's constitutionally-impaired civil rights "leaders" are now making the same mistake with trying to force constitutionally indefensible federal civil rights which protect the gay agenda.

But it remains that the states are free to make laws which discriminate on any basis that they have not amended the Constitution to expressly protect, as long as such laws don't also unreasonably abridge enumerated protections.

Regarding the gay agenda, what I don't understand is why "secular" business owners who compete with Christian-owned businesses wouldn't welcome the patronage of gay people that Christians business owners would rather not deal with.

Finally what Christian business owners need to keep is mind concernig the gay agenda is the following. They don't want to be a stumbling block to people struggling with same-sex temptations, but who would nonetheless be receptive to the good news of Jesus. After all, 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 indicates that certain members of that church had been involved in same-sex relationships but had evidently repented and accepted God's grace to turn their lives around.

The social issues are more adaptable to the Alinsky method. They will use it to paint their opponents with political tar and feathers. We can do it right back to them. It means getting down into the sewer and fighting them. No hold barred.

We need to distinguish between man’s laws and God’s laws. Neither the Supreme Court nor the US Constitution is going to protect Christians from the world. Far too many Christians have made the mistake of thinking that because they live in America that the laws of the state would be a reflection of the laws of God. As you can see, they aren’t. We Christians have to accept the fact that we are IN the world, and we are not going escape all the evils and temptation from living in the world. We are IN the world, but we do no have to be OF the world. A time of great suffering is coming for all those that follow the Cross of Christ.

“Guess what. I support the hair-stylist’s right to stop serving...for whatever reason. It may not be good for business, but that’s his/her right.”

That reminds me of an incident my Dad told me about. During the civil rights era and afterwards, my Dad was a barber. He said blacks would go around testing different businesses to see if they would be served. One day a black guy came in his barber shop, sat down in the chair and asked for a hair cut. My Dad cheerfully said, ‘Why sure.’ ‘I’ve never cut a black person’s hair before but I’ll be glad to give it a try.’ The guy got up and left.

There were bars in the 60s and 70s that didn't want gays harassing the customers.

(photo from Barney's Beanery, a popular bar among West Coast artists and writers)

There are still gay-only bars. And they make special effort to humiliate any outsiders (one in Houston famously made any guy entering surrender his underwear).

The double-standard exists.

That's an easy one.

Burning a cross is not protected speech.

But getting taxpayers to pay a homo to dip it in a jar of urine IS.

And burning an American flag IS.

Yes, exactly. How shall we order a society where we must not allow government to have the power to intrude on private matters between consenting adults? I don’t want to have a government that is so powerful that it can decide that what my wife and I do in the privacy of our own home is somehow a “crime”.

Having said that, there is a difference between what behavior government declares to be illegal and what God does. How do we, as a nation where we forbid government from expressing an opinion about religion (via the First Amendment), and requiring it to allow any religious expression or none at all, how do we engender a society that is moral, including one that is moral with respect to sexual behavior?

Christian churches and their clergy used to have a loud voice in the public square and in the public mind. But not only have they been shouted out of the public square, some have been so seduced by the spirit of this world that they even support and enable sexual immorality.

Long ago, state and local governments stopped enforcing laws about co-habitation with a member of the opposite sex. Government in the last several generations has not sanctioned groups of people peacefully living together. If government cannot muster the ability to forbid a “hippie commune” and the resulting feral children, how can it forbid same-sex co-habitation, polygamy or polyamory?

(I am amused at how advocates of same-sex marriage are repulsed by the suggesting that it will lead to legalizing polygamy.)

God is not mocked. At some point He judges a society and first withdraws His blessings and then imposes punishment for immorality. He promises such. But that is a message for those who know and love God to bring to society, not government. And I don’t want to give Catholics or Baptists, or Muslims, the power of arrest, jail and deadly force, to impose what they see as moral on me.

Now, how to have a peaceful moral and godly society? Sometimes you can’t. In Luke 4:29 an entire city ejected Jesus an attempted to murder him for being truthful with them about their attitude towards God’s truth.

Leviticus 18:22-30 MKJV
(22) You shall not lie with mankind as with womankind. It is abomination to God.
(23) And you shall not lie with any animal to defile yourself with it. And a woman shall not stand before an animal to lie down to it. It is a perversion.
(24) Do not defile yourselves in any of these things. For in all these the nations are defiled, which I cast out before you.
(25) And the land is defiled. Therefore I visit its wickedness on it, and the land itself vomits out those who live in it.
(26) You shall therefore keep My statutes and My judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations, neither the native, nor any stranger that lives among you.
(27) For the men of the land who were before you have done all these abominations, and the land is defiled.
(28) You shall not do these so that the land may not spew you out also when you defile it, as it spewed out the nations that were before you.
(29) For whoever shall commit any of these abominations, even the souls who commit them shall be cut off from among their people.
(30) And you shall keep My ordinance, so as not to do any of these abominable customs which were committed before you, and that you do not defile yourselves in them. I am Jehovah your God.

There was a time I didn’t care one way or the other. Still don’t, in some cases.

But I’m so tired of the “In Your Face Faggots” that I would seriously consider a “No Homosexuals” sign. I might not do it because it would also offend a lot of straights, but I’m tired of being told homosexuals are special people that I must admire.

It seems to me that “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” is good advice for public behavior, homosexual or heterosexual...just leave your sex life in your bedroom!
