  • The Decline and Fall of the ‘H’ Word (Homosexual)

    New York Times ^ | March 21, 2014 | JEREMY W. PETERS
    To most ears, it probably sounds inoffensive. A little outdated and clinical, perhaps, but innocuous enough: homosexual. But that five-syllable word has never been more loaded, more deliberately used and, to the ears of many gays and lesbians, more pejorative. “ ‘Homosexual’ has the ring of ‘colored’ now, in the way your grandmother might have used that term, except that it hasn’t been recuperated in the same way,” said George Chauncey, a Yale professor of history and an author who studies gay and lesbian culture. Consider the following phrases: homosexual community, homosexual activist, homosexual marriage. Substitute the word “gay” in...
  • What GLAAD and Muslim Extremists Have in Common

    GLAAD is the Gay and Lesbian Alliance against Defamation. The OIC is the Organization of the Islamic Cooperation, a 56-state organization which constitutes the largest voting bloc in the UN. At first glance, the two groups would not seem to have much in common—particularly when one considers the general antipathy toward homosexuals in the Muslim world.Upon further consideration, however, there are some interesting similarities between the two groups. For example, both are in the anti-defamation business. So as not to exclude bisexuals and transgenders, GLAAD no longer uses the full title, but its mission—to protect the gay community from...

    Listen to an audio version of this column When we read about a Russian television star saying he believes homosexuals should be burned alive in ovens and stripped of their right to vote (before or after the ovens?), then right off the bat, we know we're dealing with a hard-core publicity hound or a lunatic, maybe both. Naturally, no one, other than fellow lunatics, would agree with him. That's not a hard position to take. Conservative radio talk show host, Glenn Beck, weighed in on the story in an appearance on CNN. He had apparently mentioned the story on his...
  • Glenn Beck Has Completely Lost It

    I am concluding that Glenn Beck has either lost his mind, or is slowly becoming a leftist. Today on his site are two rather disturbing videos. The first in which he continues his crusade to support GLAAD, comparing Russia's law protecting minors from homosexual propaganda to the Holocaust, and blowing up incendiary comments made by a Russian actor for no apparent reason other than to help push the narrative of permanent victimhood that the homosexual lobby thrives on. Here, we can be treated to Glenn engaging in left wing obfuscation more likely to be used by Al Sharpton than any...

    GLAAD needs a makeover. Their Queer Eye for Straight Guy Phil Robertson blew up in their face. Just ask A&E. Not since the young Vito Corleone persuaded landlord Signor Roberto’s to “walkback” his decision to evict the poor widow and her dog (“and the dog stays, right?”) has a business decision been reversed as abruptly, awkwardly or hilariously. We can only wonder what Phil Robertson’s version of “and the dog stays, right?” sounded like to the hat-holding and stuttering A&E executives. “Who put a book by that filthy f*ggot on my shelf!” snarled Che Guevara (subject of a History Channel...

    Conservative radio host Glenn Beck told CNN's S.E. Cupp that he would stand with the gay advocacy group GLAAD in the fight against the criminalization of homosexuality in Russia. Beck said it’s ridiculous that Americans were so wrapped up in “Duck Dynasty” and the race of Santa Claus in December. “What are you nuts? That’s the conversation we’re having?” Meanwhile in Russia, he said, “last week one of their biggest stars on television said that homosexuals should be put into the ovens alive.” “I didn’t think you could make the Holocaust worse,” he said, “but he’s like ‘Why the...

    Lots of things that should have happened in 2013 did not. We were supposed to have long ago reached "peak oil" and an age of always-higher gas prices. Wind and solar power -- and a reduced lifestyle -- were our dismal future. But someone or something did not cooperate with gloomy government predictions. After all the failed subsidized green companies, the postponement of the Keystone Pipeline, the radical restrictions of new gas and oil leasing on federal lands, and the promises for radical climate-change legislation curtailing carbon energy use, the United States nevertheless seems awash in old energy.

    Well, that only took decades. Who knew that the Leftist Playbook would finally get seriously winged by a duck caller? [SNIP] As the year ends, the un-suspension of Phil Robertson is exactly the moment to understand that what Mr. Robertson and his family — who rallied to their patriarch — have accomplished is no small thing. This “controversy” in fact had nothing to do with gays or African Americans. In fact, the Robertson-A&E dust-up was merely the latest in a long — very long — line of leftist attempts to impose supposedly sophisticated moral pretensions on the rest of the...

    Unpleasant video footage of reinstated Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson has emerged in which he appears to advise young men to marry underage girls because they are easier to control. In the 2009 Sportsmen's Ministry talk, Robertson, 67, who began dating his wife when she was 14-years-old, advises his audience, 'You got to marry these girls when they are 15 or 16. They'll pick your ducks' - which is a literal reference to removing dead bird's feathers. Warming to his stereotypical redneck theme, Robertson, who was suspended from the A&E hit for nine days earlier this month for homophobic comments,...

    At first, the gay advocacy group GLAAD successfully urged A&E network to punish Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson for comments about homosexuals he made in GQ. But now that the network has relented and returned the elder Robertson to his reality show, the advocacy group is not very happy at all. "Phil Robertson should look African American and gay people in the eyes and hear about the hurtful impact of praising Jim Crow laws and comparing gay people to terrorists," GLAAD said in a statement to the press. "If dialogue with Phil is not part of next steps then A&E...

The winners: Robertson and his family.They held fast to their values and learned how deep their fan base really is.

A play based on Shepard's killing, "The Laramie Project" became, according to the...

Whether you use any of the various synonyms for the word normal or employ it as an adjective or a noun, one thing is certain: Two men using a surrogate mother to produce a child is anything but normal.

    An Internet-born movement to encourage solidarity with teen victims of gay bullying has spurred several celebrities, schools, and media to officially promote the pro-homosexual campaign by wearing purple this past Wednesday. A young woman named Brittany McMillan, who spread the idea on her Tumblr account, and was championed by the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), reportedly began the movement, which is intended to memorialize homosexual youths who have killed themselves. Several media outlets endorsed the movement, including CNBC, the Today Show, E!, HGTV, Philadelphia Magazine, Ms. Magazine, The View, and numerous Spanish-language media. Even the New York Stock...

    Back in 2007, we assembled background info on the horrid propaganda play, “The Laramie Project.” Performed at high schools and colleges around the country, it uses raw emotion and lies to draw youth into the sexual-radical “rights” cause. The recruitment efforts never let up. So we’re not surprised to see “Laramie” being pushed again by Arts Emerson and the Boston Globe this week. They’re even exploiting the Governor’s daughter as a “panelist”. Emerson faculty are working with the sexual-radical groups GLAD, GLAAD, PFLAG, GLSEN, Matthew Shepard Foundation, Human Rights Campaign, and Boston’s “Theater Offensive” (“ambitious programming [on] the cutting edge...

    Despite NBC's decision to allow same-sex couples to apply for its "Modern Love" wedding contest, there were none among the four finalists revealed this morning on the "Today" show. When the call for entries opened earlier this summer, the "Today" show faced pressure from GLAAD after the network said couples needed to be eligible for marriage in the state of New York to enter. Executive producer Jim Bell met with GLAAD to discuss the contest and its rules and, following that meeting, "Today" extended the contest deadline and announced that it would allow same-sex couples to apply. Viewers can now...

    A 10-year-old boy has been named grand marshal for a gay pride parade this weekend – prompting a family advocacy group to call the decision "child abuse" and urge the local mayor to withdraw city support for the event. The American Family Association spoke out against Will Phillips' scheduled participation Saturday in the Northwest Arkansas Pride parade in Fayetteville, Ark. "It's shameful that adults would abuse a brain-washed child in this way," AFA President Tim Wildmon wrote in a press release. "He's obviously just parroting the nonsense he's been told by manipulative adults. For gay activists to trot out this...
