New Demand From Progressives, Reparations For Gay People
The Federalist Papers ^ | 6/14/2019 | Omar G. Encarnación

Posted on 06/15/2019 7:51:07 PM PDT by Beave Meister

Other countries are taking steps to atone for their shameful past treatment of L.G.B.T. people. The United States should too.

The New York Police Department apologized last week to the gay community for the 1969 raid of the Stonewall Inn, the fallout of which is widely credited with spurring the contemporary gay rights movement at home and abroad. Timed to coincide with Stonewall’s 50th anniversary, the statement by Commissioner James P. O’Neill said in part: “The actions taken by the N.Y.P.D. were wrong — plain and simple” and “the actions and the laws were discriminatory and oppressive, and for that, I apologize.” The apology is the culmination of a decades-old struggle by gay activists for recognition of wrongdoing on the part of the police — one that few activists thought could ever become a reality.

With the surprise apology, the United States has taken its most significant leap yet into “gay reparation,” or policies intended to address the legacy of state-sanctioned repression of homosexuals. Although relatively new to the United States, gay reparation has been debated and legislated around the world for close to two decades and is a logical progression in the maturation of the gay rights movement. Having largely secured rights once thought to be virtually unattainable — especially same-sex marriage — gay activists, especially in Western democracies, are turning their attention to addressing the historical legacies of homosexual repression.

What about left handed people or redheads? Do they deserve reparations too? And this is why there are never going to be reparations for anyone.

Will God have to pay reparations for Sodom and Gomorrah, even though they’ll all still go to Hell?

Several of my great-great etceteras were gay.

Bearing and getting children with the true desires of their hearts buried and secret.

I would like to collect on their behalf.

Where do I send a claim?

What about those of us from abusive homes? What about people born with gene mutations that led to them getting cancer or having heart failure? What about those who lost their parents in military service, or who lost loved ones to violence (e.g. Kate Steinle’s family)? What about financial reparations to those who lost their jobs and whose families suffered because they lost their jobs to illegals?

The list is long. I am so very, very, very tired of the stupidity and selfishness of those on the left.

Stonewall wasn’t a legit bar. Because the regulations on bottle clubs are so much lower than for bars (little running required and just one point of exit), it was a Bottle Club and it was run by The Mob.

Stonewall had TWO income streams —selling booze and blackmailing closeted gay guys who were problem customers; not paying on time, or just not paying, or repeatedly hitting on guys who weren’t interested in them, or fighting.

Most of them time the guys getting blackmailed got pissed and paid. But sometimes they threw a fit, and Stonewall was one of those times when a yuge fight broke out, not just eye-rolling, scoffing and pulling hair but fists thrown, etc.

Plus the media was mob friendly so they reported on the ruckus in a way that made it seem like the cops had been somehow oppressive.

The Left transformed Stonewall from a tizzy on steroids and injected it with a bunch of made-up righteous outrage to make it into some type of moral cause.

Just like the did with that homo Wyoming meth dealer Matthew Shepard; they turned him into a Christlike figure crucified on a barbwire fence owing to nothing more than intolerance.

It was BS:

Shepard had told two other gay meth dealers that he’d given them AIDS. Before that they did envy his drug pipeline from Chicago —they wanted those. But after his little AIDS outburst they got pissed and went and killed their rival drug dealer.

Shepard was leaning against a post that formed part of a barbed-wire fence, he wasn’t HUNG on it.

Reparations need to be paid by militant Marxists and those “moderates” who stand with militant Marxists hellbent on the destruction of this country, the family, and Western civilization itself.

Fact: the Stonewall veterans organization in NY encouraged their members to vote for Trump. I spoke with the group’s leader and confirmed it.

I just now realized my auto-spell selected “repartitions” instead of "reparations". I sometimes type very quickly, relying on auto-spell to correct any misspellings. Guess I need to look more closely at which word they've selected.

How about reparations from the fags for introducing and spreading AIDS??

How many have died due to their depraved urges?

Their contribution to Hepatitis of various types is well known, particularly Type C.
