    "President Barack Obama drew the diplomatic line somewhere at the first ever U.S-Africa summit at the White House this week by not inviting Zimbabwe’s brutal dictator Robert Mugabe. But the guest list still included several other African leaders with only slightly better human rights records. The White House promoted the summit as the largest-ever gathering of African leaders in the United States, with more than 50 countries represented. The red carpet was rolled out for Equatorial Guinea's Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, who shot or jailed virtually all his political opponents, Gambia’s Yahya Jammeh, who threatened to ‘cut off the head’...

    World Cup nations Mexico, Brazil, Croatia and Russia are currently under investigation by FIFA. The international governing body of association football are reportedly looking into the fan behavior of these four national football teams regarding recent actions at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. Fans of “El Tri,” the Mexican national football team currently competing in the international tournament are allegedly set to receive disciplinary actions, according to NBC the penalizing procedures have already begun for Mexico’s loyal fans. FIFA’s response comes in the wake of fans seemingly obvious, though still at this point “alleged” racist and homophobic remarks and...

    Ray Cote, the charming fellow pictured here, has resigned as the board of education president in Mahopac, New York, just north of the city, after a hot mike caught him calling a parent fat. "This one here, chubby wubby, she gets fatter and fatter at every meeting. She really does," said Cote at a board gathering that was being streamed live online. A committed mother watching at home put the clip on YouTube, like a small-town V. Stiviano, and now the jerk is gone.

    Hollywood's glitziest party could soon find a new home. Since 2003, the Motion Picture & Television Fund's Night Before the Oscars event has been held at the Beverly Hills Hotel. But now the Sunset Boulevard resort is being boycotted by gay groups and others because its owner, Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah of Brunei, is poised to implement Sharia law, calling for death by stoning for gays and adulterers. The state-owned Brunei Investment Agency owns the Dorchester Collection, which includes the Beverly Hills Hotel, Hotel Bel-Air and properties in Rome, Paris, Milan and Geneva. And that has led to calls for boycotting...

    ROME, January 16, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The Italian Senate is again considering the “Mancino law,” a bill that proposes to criminalize “homophobia,” but this time the bill is gaining increasing opposition – both from Christians, who are concerned about civil liberties, and from homosexual activists, who consider that amendments have rendered it “toothless.” On Saturday, a large rally was held in Rome against the bill organized by the recently formed Manif Pour Tous Italia, a civil liberties association that is concerned that such laws curtail human rights, rather than defending them. Opponents have been vocal in their concerns that the...

    The problem is that people don’t seem to be able to find the right middle. There was a time when homosexuals were wrongly persecuted, when they couldn't even be open about their homosexuality, and that certainly was a bad state of affairs. Luckily we have gone past it and that’s fine. But people are so afraid that we could go back to that time that any criticism of homosexuality is taken as a sign of "anti-gay" discrimination: this is the opposite extreme, in which the persecution and discrimination are actually at the expense of those who disagree with the...

    In Italy, several websites are collecting signatures for a petition opposing the "bill against homophobia and transphobia". It is an oppressive, totalitarian and dangerous piece of legislation, threatening freedom of speech and religion. The petition has already collected 24,000 signatures (including mine) in a few days. The Italian Parliament's lower house, the Chamber of Deputies, is about to discuss a new "bill against homophobia and transphobia". If approved, this law would have serious repercussions on the fundamental human rights recognized by the Italian Constitution, including the right to freedom of thought (art. 21) and freedom of religion (art. 19).

    For years, advocates of the gay rights movement have said that their goal is to make the world a more tolerant place for homosexuals. They have just as adamantly claimed that they had no intention of educating young children in the complexities of human sexuality. Not so in Hollywood. Take, for example, the new animated film Boxtrolls, created by studio Laika. The film is a riff on the old Mrs. Doubtfire morality that suggests that all families are created equal, no matter what their composition. “Families come in all shapes and sizes,” the narrator of the preview says. “Even rectangles.”...

    In a classic episode of "Seinfeld" entitled "The Outing," a student reporter is convinced that Jerry and George Costanza are gay. They strenuously deny being gay, while adding "not that there's anything wrong with that." The phrase almost immediately became part of the way Americans talk about homosexuality. The "Seinfeld" episode came to mind while reading recently about the brouhaha concerning Roy Hibbert of the NBA's Indiana Pacers. During a press conference, Hibbert used profanity and commented about being "stretched out" on the basketball court. And then he used the phrase "no homo." If you're unfamiliar with that phrase, you're...

If you object then you're a racist: Life has become extremely complex in the University of New Mexico's English department in the three years since Lisa D. Chávez, a tenured associate professor, was discovered moonlighting as the phone-sex dominatrix "Mistress Jade," and posing in promotional pictures sexually dominating one of...

    Editor's Note: NewsBusters Publisher and Media Research Center President President Brent Bozell released the following statement today regarding the broadcast and cable news media's silence about President Barack Obama's use of a crass sexual slang term to refer to Tea Party members. If President George W. Bush had slurred the gay-rights movement during his presidency, it would have immediately dominated the news of every single national media outlet. Reporters would have pummeled the Administration and demanded an explanation and apology for the offense, and rightly so. You don’t smear anyone – let alone fellow Americans who elected you to office...

    Three days after he decried the lack of civility in American politics, President Obama is quoted in a new book about his presidency referring to the Tea Party movement using a derogatory term with sexual connotations. In Jonathan Alter’s “The Promise: President Obama, Year One,” President Obama is quoted in an interview saying that the unanimous vote of House Republicans vote against the stimulus bills “set the tenor for the whole year ... That helped to create the tea-baggers and empowered that whole wing of the Republican Party to where it now controls the agenda for the Republicans.” Tea Party...

    You’ve probably heard of Geert Wilders, the “far right” Dutch politician currently on trial in Amsterdam for offending Islam. But have you heard of Guy Earle? He’s a Canadian stand-up comedian currently on trial in Vancouver for offending lesbians. Two lesbians in particular. They came to a late-night comedy show he was hosting and got a table near the stage. They were drunk, and began disrupting the act, and so he did the old Don Rickles thing and put down the hecklers. So, naturally, the aggrieved party went to the British Columbia “Human Rights” Tribunal, and Mr Earle has now...

    In an interview, U.S. Representative John Conyers, D-Detroit, repeatedly referred to anti-government activists as "tea baggers" and said that their "rational abilities" are "compromised" because of their anger. "We are here now to understand the frustration of the tea baggers and the people who are angry," said Conyers. "Many times when you're angry, your rational abilities are compromised." The comments came at the Michigan Democratic Party endorsement convention. Conyers, who is Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, turned the conversation towards the tea parties and the recent health care bill after being asked how Democrats could remain in contention in...

    California Assembly Concurrent Resolution No. 82—Relative to public education and discrimination-free zones. ACR 82, as amended, Hall. Public education: “Discrimination Free Zones.” Gee, does this mean if I don't like someone because they sell drugs in public grade school, I have somehow discriminated against them based on their behavior? Have I now committed a crime? legislative counsel’s digest ACR 82, as amended, Hall. Public education: “Discrimination Free Zones.” This measure would encourage public education institutions to designate each campus as a “Discrimination-Free Zone” to provide a safe haven from intolerance or discrimination, to enact appropriate procedures that meaningfully address acts...

    This column is a little inflammatory... Last week, in this space, I appear to have awakened a movement larger than the one I achieved prior to my last colonoscopy. Who could have thought that government resentful "teabaggers" existed here in the rain forests of the Puget Sound? After my recent personal encounter with these activists in the other Washington, I imagined that they were simply part of the extensive production capability of FOX News. Who would have thunk that they are very much alive and well and reading blogs here at Seattlepi.com? It would appear at first glance that my...

    So today we have a recording released on YouTube where Michelle Obama is making reference to Barack’s HOMELAND of Kenya. Where did this video come from and why was it released? This was recorded in front of LGBT Delegate Luncheon in August of 2008. So why now? Be careful, birthers, don’t let common sense and facts get in your way when addressing Obama’s qualifications, they’re just looking for a reason sit back an mock you. You can’t touch this. What’s even more interesting in the video is how she insinuates that everyone that has AIDS is gay.

    Well, I finally saw my first LIVE Tea Party yesterday. It was going on at the corner of University and Oakland Park in Sunrise where I was heading to do some couponing activities at WalMart. My first observation was that it seemed a lot more exciting in person than just watching a Tea Party on YouTube. Even though they were just making an appearance with the Gasden Flag and signs such as "Remember November," their mere presence served as a great reminder to folks driving by. I also knew it would drive the DUmmie types even CRAZIER than they...

    ISTANBUL — When Turkey's family affairs minister recently described homosexuality as a curable disease, she was roundly criticized for discrimination and flouting human rights. But for activists her remarks only underscore what they say is increasing prejudice, discrimination and violence -- even from police -- against homosexuals and transgender people in this Muslim-majority country stuck between its conservative roots and flourishing modernism. A total of 45 gays and transgender people were killed over three years in "hate murders", said Demet Demir, a transsexual and leading activist from Istanbul-LGBTT, a civic body promoting homosexual rights. "In February alone, five people were...

    We are seeing similar homophobic acts from the left here in the States. San Francisco, long thought of as the gay capital of the world, has turned on the gay community to bow and scrape to Islam. Last week I wrote about a group Muslims who shot a gay man in his face. In that piece I noted that the homophobic shooters were not identified as Muslims in the San Francisco Chronicle -- SF Gate. What is not known is that allegedly this was not a decision made by the media, but by the DA. Worse yet, the story wasn't...
