Exclusive: Matt Barber on 'gay' activists: 'They've picked a fight they cannot win'
WND Commentary ^ | July 28 2012 | Matt Barber

Posted on 07/28/2012 9:22:39 AM PDT by scottjewell

... The Jim Henson Company ...has severed promotional ties with Chick-fil-A – . . .

Their crime? Failure to obey the nauseating, mind-numbing dictates of political correctness.

Dan Cathy . . . recently made a few innocuous public comments in support of legitimate marriage – sentiments the vast majority of morals-minded Americans happen to agree with...

That’s the thing... about political correctness. It exists in the realm of fantasy...

They float the propagandist idiom “marriage equality” – choosing all the while to ignore objective “marriage reality.”

So-called “same-sex marriage”? A counterfeit... “Gay marriage” is no more real marriage then a rotten apple is an orange.

It’s unavoidable. Marriage is, by definition, the joining of two complementary opposites – two “others.”

“Gay marriage” is mock marriage. It’s fantasy – a dead end. Even a child knows this intuitively and, in their heart-of-hearts, lefties and “gay” activists know it, too. That’s why they respond so violently when people snicker at it or, as in the case of Dan Cathy, even respectfully acknowledge that it’s not grounded in reality...

The wonderful thing about liberals is that they almost universally overplay their hand. They respond to “inconvenient truths” with hysterical, reactionary overreach. There’s been a magnificent backlash from their attacks on Chick-fil-A. They’ve picked a fight they cannot win.. .

This is getting into dangerous territory.

We’re saying that, unless you are on the liberal side of some divisive issue, that you will not be allowed to operate a business in liberal paradises such as Boston and Chicago??? Do we really want to go there????

Have the liberals truly gone over the edge on this one? They think that you should not be allowed to be in business unless you are liberal. I’m usually not shocked by liberal logic, but this liberal reasoning has me shocked.

And I’m shocked that they are pushing mainstream acceptance of such a tactic, of denying business permits and such, to punish businesses which are not liberal.

Yes, it is shocking.

But as Barber points out, it is actually a good thing that they have overplayed their hand. They’ve accidentally revealed to the whole public just how fascist their tendencies really are...

Disagree. They are winning the culture war. Movies and tv celebrate them.

Chilling effect on speech is the goal. Opposing gay agenda in Amy way will one day be illegal hate speech.

Today will be my first time eating at Chick-Fil-A. Gonna make the 75 mile round trip to the nearest one and give them my support.

Side note, will not be shopping at the conveniently located Target near my house, but will drive the extra 10 miles to hit up Walmart.

So,I guess gay activism does produce results.

You are right. For 80 years, five steps left, one step right. People who believe in bedrock principals of liberty and freedom — individualism, marriage, family, self-worth, limited government, God — are derided as “extreme.” We’ve let the enemy take over and control everything.

I agree with you, but the problem in this case is that they've "planted their flag" on an issue where they've taken a side that is utterly repulsive even to many people who support them from a purely partisan political standpoint. Opposition to the "normalization" of homosexuality is so deep-rooted that it brings out strong support from a lot of people who might be largely non-political on most other issues.

They are winning the culture war. Movies and tv celebrate them.

You're kind of making my point. Network television is disappearing before our eyes, and Hollywood movie studios are not exactly strong business models to begin with. You can go to any neighborhood in America and observe a group of pre-teen boys walking home from school or playing sports in a park. The terms "fag" and "faggot" are used almost universally even among kids at that young age as the ultimate insult to any of their peers who acts like a jack@ss or steps out of line in any way. Nothing Hollywood or mass media does can ever change that.

That may appear to be so, but don’t discount that they’ve also pissed off a lot of people to the point where they are now inclined to push back, whereas before they were merely indifferent. Turning an indifferent person into an upset, active foe is not a victory.

Odd since Target was subject to a boycott by Lefty activists a couple of years ago for supporting a conservative politician in MN.

http://articles.latimes.com/2011/apr/08/business/la-fi-target-gay-20110409

This is not to say Target is anti-gay (or pro-gay), but I think they try to be neutral. Most companies have the sense to steer their ship clear of those sorts of rocks. Only entertainment companies have the gall to do so, but then that workforce tends to be over represented by those light in the loafers.

I was watching this controversy all over the news yesterday. I told Hubby they should just say....okay you win, we are leaving. Quit fighting it, let the liberal asshats see how well they do without all the producers money. Pick up and leave to someplace friendly to your values, businesses and people.

Liberals are trying to make homosexuality omnipresent in virtual media, because it is so socially insignificant in reality. It can’t be easy taking 2 percent of the population, (even when the president is one of them) and creating an image of political force. The left has to take every opportunity that presents itself to get homosexuality in our face. One would think it is raining queers. It is an attempt to shame Americans out of our values and moral absolutes, to soften us up for tyranny. Resistance may not be futile, but the left will do everything in their power to make it brutal. Just say no to gay marriage. Fact is, you will be saying yes to what a vast majority of Americans think, even if it doesn’t saturate the media.

Gays and lezzies need the other sex to reproduce. If they think they are even with male and female marriage, let them reproduce together without help. Let the man on man and the woman on woman reproduce a child. THEN they could say they were even and the same. Simply put, The Lord said it was an abomination to Him. He said it, I believe it. Thus, at the Great White Throne of Judgment, they will answer for it. Liberal do not believe in God because they do not want to admit that they are actually under His control. But, as Scripture says, every, and that is EVERY knee shall bow and every mouth shall confess that HE is LORD! That simple. Liberal, in the end, will HAVE TO ADMIT He is who He said He is. Because of their unbelief, they are destine to eternal hell with their pal satan.

Liberal logic makes even less sense when you consider they will welcome anti-gay Muslim-run businesses with open arms.

Makes your head spin. No wonder they never use logic in a debate.

Haven’t seen any of those. Yes, I would find such disturbing. Guess it depends on locations. Stores often try to cater to local sensibilities.

Then again, I also don’t really read any print ads so I’m not well informed in that area. Don’t get the local paper, and throw out the flyers in my mail without looking at them. I find those policies are generally better for my tranquility.

The other side of the truth is that these fools are so out of there mind that they will at some point call for the outlawing of traditional marriage and male/female relationships. In other words you will have to be gay or else it will be considered a crime if we follow this stuff to its logical and sick conclusion. The break down of real values and morals is an ugly thing for a society once it goes down that road.

Here’s how the gay agenda can ultimately defeat Chickfil-A.
Just covert (or pervert) every rooster in the nation to practicing gay sex. Results become no more chickens. For faster results just convert all existing chickens into lesbians and shun the roosters altogether. Any Rooster who breaks the rules will be circumcised and then prosecuted for a hate crime.
That will teach Dan Cathy a lesson, ehehehehe.

“Gay marriage” is mock marriage. It’s fantasy – a dead end. Even a child knows this intuitively and, in their heart-of-hearts, lefties and “gay” activists know it, too. That’s why they respond so violently when people snicker at it or, as in the case of Dan Cathy, even respectfully acknowledge that it’s not grounded in reality...

The heart of it: they overreact when we say the Emperor is butt nekkid. Sad.

True, but things can reverse if the other side stops capitulating and being passive and complacent.

Moreover: If the political and social climate were to change suddenly and drastically:

things have a way of changing when economic hardship, global war, natural catastrophes set in. Sad to think it will take all of that to reverse this trend, but I do believe anything less will not do the trick.

Yes they crossed the line. I frankly have no problem if lefties want to boycott my favorite businesses as long as they let me know they hate the places where I shop. When they do that I make it a point to shop there more often.

Where the lefties went over the line was in getting the governments of Boston and Chicago to try to intimidate Chick-fil-A by the denial of permits and stating that they don’t want businesses with MY VALUES in their town. Well the normal, everyday, go-along-to-get-along, moderate, mind-your-own-busienss, family-values Americans had a visceral reaction to the Nazi tactics of Boston and Chicago and as a result everyone is jumping on the Chick-fil-A bandwagon and the liberals are literally going insane over it (Just read some of the comments on the Chick-fil-A facebook page).

They can’t believe that people are not following the politically correct zeitgeist that they have been slowly cramming down our throats and we have risen up against their PC tyranny.

I am hopeful that this is the first defensive volley in the war to destroy our American values. I pray that the liberals continue to overplay their hand because it is great to see them standing on the firing lines and shooting themselves in the feet.

The culture war is on. The battle lines have been drawn and the soldiers are on the march. Let us hope that someday we will look upon the Chick-fil-A war as the Waterloo of the left’s war against Christians and traditional Judeo-Christian values.

ONWARD CHRISTIAN SOLDIERS

Marching on to Chick-fil-A... and beyond!

See you all there on August 1 AND August 3.

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner!

Buy gift cards for your liberal friends and families.

Take America back.

I think its a mistake to assume its overreach and that they can’t win. Recent history suggests otherwise.

What I think will happen is that they’ll tone down the rhetoric a tad, but then actually implement the ban behind the scenes in a more subtle manner. As any pol knows, there are a thousand ways to do it.

And, yes, it is a slippery slope. I can imagine Government punishing citizens for contributing to the GOP because some bureaucrat decided it “promotes hatred” of some sort.

This is just another strong indicator the liberals not only are loosing the American voter, but are having to also recognize it.

Liberals are routinely counter-intuitive, where most people with any common sense would see if they're in a losing position would either meld it to more meet the consensus or would at least not keep digging the hole of trying to force everyone to go along with them.

To quote Michael Savage, "liberalism is a mental disorder".

In a democracy, it is the responsibility of government, at all levels, to protect and defend the rights of all citizens, including the rights of legitimate minority representations.

But this can not and should not always be done at the expense of the larger public interest and larger public good!

The gay movement, for years, has been protected, defended AND promoted, NOT just by individuals, but by government, often at the expense of that public interest and public good.

Until there is some kind of sensible reversal on the part of many governments in our nation, state, local, county, municipal and of course federal, our beloved nation is heading towards a terrible meltdown!

One of the things that absolutely infuriates me is the arrogance and sanctimonious blathering of the homosexuals about “their special rights”. Really? And what would those be? Buggering all of the time with any human, plant, or animal and embracing their inner pedophile?

Remember when Gianni Versache was tortured and murdered by another gay, Andrew Cunanan? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gianni_Versace

When the gay-loving media found out that Versache’s murder was gay, they had an absolute cow! It was find Gianni's murderer 24/7 in the media. All of law enforcement was to drop everything to find the killer of their fave rave, Gianni. The gay community was also in a tizzy because the promiscuous male buggerers didn't know if their new “partner” was really a gay serial killer. Oh, heavens! The homosexual lobby breathed a collective sigh of relief when Cunanan killed himself 8 days after Versache’s body was found. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andrew_Cunanan

What the militant 2% of the gay population has not figured out is they are increasingly loathed and despised by the 98% who do not share their perverted lifestyle and values. The more they attempt to legitimize it, the more violent the blowback when it comes. Payback will not be pretty.

There are many more who have not surrendered, seems you have.

The “culture” they are leading in is the one they defined, the one catering to school kids and those with school kid mentality.

In one aspect you are right, they won the government. Not the same as winning the hearts of this citizenry.

We allowed the liberals to take over because America has always been a pushover to give everyone the “benefit of the doubt”. Just like Germany and Japan, once this sleeping giant is waked up just in the nick of time, it always fights back. We are about to reach that point.

I printed out all the Chick-Fil-A locations in my multi-state driving territory yesterday; and also made it a point to go to Chick-Fil-A for dinner. Cars in the drive-thru lane went around the side of the building, maybe 15 patiently waiting, and the inside was packed, too. And I'm in a blue state that always elects Democrats.

In every state where gay marriage has been put on the ballot, it is always defeated by 2-to-1. This is, indeed, a fight they can't win, because they are outnumbered and consumers want their "chicken sandwich - hold the hissy fit." But the tantrums do seem to be good for business.

Sad thing is most business owners are not liberal. The majority of small business in this country are owned by the fiscally conservative and more socially conservative in most ways. Liberals cannot continue existence without these conservatives. In those cities that begin to discriminate because of personal social or political reasons will die because the remaining welfare recipients will burn them to the ground when they are denied their freebies.

This is not to say Target is anti-gay (or pro-gay), but I think they try to be neutral.

About ten or twelve years ago, Target threw the Salvation Army Christmas bell ringers off their properties in response to pressure from gay activists who objected to the Salvation Army's pledge for moral straightness in its permanent employees (which most of the bell ringers are not).

I emailed them that I would no longer shop at Target, listing all the Targets I had bought from with my credit card (I travel a lot). Not only did I make good on my promise; but their next quarter earnings were dismal; so lots of other people boycotted, too. The same thing has recently happened to J.C. Penney's for trying to "espouse" gay marriage at a traditionally family-oriented store. They lost money and their top executive lost his job.

Many stores are also learning their lesson about the "Happy Holidays" or "Holiday Trees" crapola. People who want Christmas trees do not want the Christ out of Christmas, and vote with their feet. That's what free markets are supposed to do.

Maybe your view is correct and I am evaluating society wrongly, but I fear not. Either way we fight to the last man (or woman)!
Temporal hope for a better future, for victory is not necessarily for this warrior. we fight because we can not live in this time without being forced to arms. we fight because at stake is justice, righteousness, goodness, beauty. and on the side of these we want to be numbered by He who will finally make all things just and right and good and beautiful.

Right you are; and this one is so easy! Just make a little more effort to go buy some nice chicken sandwiches, or order a gift card online for family who live near a C-F-A. Painless and delicious.

They also have great salads, including chicken salad, whole wheat bread if you want it, fruit salads, nice desserts, those fabulous waffle fries and milkshakes with whipped cream. They are promoting peach shakes now in the summer.

Also, they sell excellent iced sweet tea or unsweetened iced tea either in beverage cups or in gallon jugs -- why buy Arizona or Turkey Hill when you can support the institution of natural marriage?

This is not to say Target is anti-gay (or pro-gay),”

They now have special recognition in their bridal registry for same sex couples. This is in addition to the special tee shirt they were selling honoring the gay community.

They certainly can do what they wish as a business, but we won’t shop there any more.
