AKA: Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month
“Marriage is … in its origin a contract of natural law… It is the parent, and not the child of society; the source of civility and a sort of seminary of the republic.” – Justice Joseph Story (Commentaries on the Conflict of Laws)
It is said that Nero fiddled while Rome burned. Barack Hussein Obama, likewise, has certainly been occupying himself with frivolity whilst the U.S. economy edges closer to collapse.
The community-organizer-in-chief took time out from his busy Memorial Day golfing schedule to proclaim June “National Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Pride Month,” as he has done annually since his election. “The story of America’s LGBT community is the story of our fathers and sons, our mothers and daughters, and our friends and neighbors who continue the task of making our country a more perfect Union,” said Obama, who apparently comes from both an odd family and neighborhood. He instructed all Americans to “rededicate ourselves to the pursuit of equal rights for all, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.”
That instruction prompted support from legions of his Socialist Bourgeoisie, including, for example, those at the Federal Reserve Bank in Richmond, who, as the central government freefalls toward insolvency, ordered the “gay pride” flag flown with our national flag.
Fed spokesman Jim Strader claimed, “It represents the bank’s commitment to diversity and inclusion.” The bank’s chief operating officer Sally Green added, “We strongly support a diverse and inclusive culture at the Richmond Fed and … the ‘pride’ flag as an example of our commitment to the values of acceptance and inclusion.”
Meanwhile, the economy continues to deteriorate. “We don’t know yet what happened in terms of this particular blip,” said Obama, referring to a shocking May jobs report that saw a paltry 54,000 new jobs created and the nation’s unemployment rate increase to 9.1 percent. That “blip” portends the sinking of the ship, but at least Obama and his flock of gender-confused sycophants can take comfort in knowing that our nation will have a “diverse and inclusive culture” when its economy collapses.
For all the attention the gender-challenged draw, one would think that they represent at least as large a constituency as the Democrat Party’s most devoted dependency — blacks — who make up about 12 percent of our population. But, despite Obama’s insistence that they are “our fathers and sons, our mothers and daughters, and our friends and neighbors,” according to reliable research and surveys, homosexuals compose less than 3 percent of the population. So, why all the attention?
The answer to that question is not readily available on the pages of most conservative political journals because rarely wade into the race debate. The exceptions, of course, are my conservative colleagues who happen to be black. Their skin color renders them relatively bulletproof from the Left’s “racism” canard, thereby allowing them to expose Democrat “plantation politics” without undue threat to their livelihood. Rarer still are analysts who take on the LGBT agenda. Those who do will most certainly be accused of “intolerance” and chastised for their opposition to “diversity and inclusion,” and their syndicators may be subject to commercial boycott (one more reason The Patriot Post does not accept advertising).
However, concerns about such accusations should not keep conservatives from “outing” the truth, so call me what you will — preferably after reading Gender Disorientation Pathology, my summary of how we should respond to the homosexual agenda.
Clearly, the “homosexual normalization” is a high priority for the Left, and they are focusing most of their energy on two fields of opportunity. The first is overturning federal laws which “discriminate against gays,” beginning with proscriptions concerning homosexuals in our military service branches.
Until 1993, when Bill Clinton instituted the so-called “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy giving legal standing to homosexuals in our military and intelligence institutions, those organizations maintained long-standing moratoriums prohibiting homosexual employment because they posed a high risk of compromise, and moreover because of the obvious degradation of morale associated with homosexuals in military ranks. However, in 2008, Obama made it a “top priority” of his administration to repeal DADT and allow open homosexual access to any and all military operations.
In 2010, the United States suffered the largest intelligence compromise in history, by a disgruntled homosexual, Army PFC Bradley Manning. Devastated over news that his “partner” was leaving him, Manning attempted to win back his boyfriend’s affections by “heroically” stealing, according to allegations, some 500,000 classified documents and communiqués from the government’s SIPRNet and JWICS intelligence sharing networks. He then provided them to WikiLeaks for publication. Manning is now in lockdown at Ft. Leavenworth, charged with “aiding and abetting the enemy,” which is a capital offense.
Obama’s response? He has had scant to say about Manning’s treason, and just months after Manning’s arrest, and before Democrat congressional ranks were decimated by incoming Republicans from the midterm election, Obama had Democrats in Congress push through “Do Ask, Do Tell” legislation, which ended any proscription against homosexuals in the military.
This will open the gate for the other primary “gay agenda” items, such as legal recognition of their partners for insurance and other financial benefits. Obama already ordered Navy chaplains to perform same-sex unions, but Congress pulled the reigns back on that maneuver, reminding Obama that the Defense of Marriage Act is still intact.
The second field of opportunity for homosexual normalization is the indoctrination of children at ever-younger ages with homosexual propaganda. The Left subscribes to the Marxist model for success: Karl Marx wrote, “The education of all children, from the moment that they can get along without a mother’s care, shall be in state institutions at state expense.” His student Vladimir Ilyich Lenin concurred, “Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.”
They are aggressively engaged in re-education of the young, attempting to pass the “Student Non-Discrimination Act” and a myriad of other measures at the federal and state levels which force the implementation of homosexual teaching curricula in government schools.
So, why would Obama attend to the demands of a small Democrat protectorate by advocating such damaging and high profile legislation?
An indispensable common denominator upon each of these pillars is what Founder James Wilson called, “[T]hat important and respectable, though small and sometimes neglected establishment, which is denominated a family … the principle of the community; it is that seminary, on which the commonwealth … must ultimately depend.”
Marriage is the foundation for the family. As such, it is the fundamental building block of the Republic. Thus, the Left relentlessly chips away at this institution because it inherently challenges the authority of the state.
Obama and his socialist cadres seek to establish dominion over We the People by disuniting us according to race, creed, sex, religion, ethnicity, wealth, ad infinitum, and indoctrinating us with the pretense that we must depend on Democratic Socialism for our protection. By adding “sexual orientation” to the list, they seek to undermine the fundamental building blocks of our society — marriage and family.
The repeal of DADT was the cause célèbre for the Democrats’ “gender identity” constituency, and unless it is undone by the next president and Congress, it will prove a powerful tool for the state to institutionalize the erosion of marriage and family. As for Obama’s ongoing commitment to subordinate the authority of the family to the autocracy of the state, consider the length of his recent proclamations as an indication of his priorities.
In the last month, Obama’s presidential proclamations included Military Spouse Appreciation Day (502 words), National Day of Prayer (546 words) and Memorial Day (620 words and 18 holes).
However, Obama’s Proclamation for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month was 826 words, not to mention all of his other comments and the launching of the new White House website, “Winning the Future for LGBT Americans,” ad nauseum.
Despite all the rhetoric, here are the quick and accurate facts about homosexuals and their behavior. There is no “gay gene,” no innate trait or brain distinction between heterosexuals and homosexuals. Homosexuality is not a “civil right” as identified anywhere in our Constitution or its amendments. Homosexuals experience substantially higher instances of mental illness. Homosexuals are, in fact, implicated far more often, per-capita, than heterosexuals in cases of child sexual abuse. The number of “hate crimes” directed at individuals because of homosexual proclivity is minuscule, totaling 267 among 860,853 aggravated assaults in the FBI’s most recent year of record. Homosexual orientation can change, and efforts to correct homosexual pathology are not “harmful” to the individual.
In regard to the homosexual agenda, its objectives must be understood and its actions aggressively halted.
In regard to homosexuals, I encourage you to read Gender Identity, The Homosexual Agenda and The Christian Response. I also suggest you read Advancing a Heterosexual Public Ethic With Grace, Wit, and Natural Law, and for an excellent booklet on responding to the secular challenges to traditional sexual morality, see “Gender Identity.”
