GLBTQ Targeting Youth and Schools

VIDEO: #HatchKids Video Shows Young Children Being Manipulated toward Approving of Bruce Jenner’s Gender Confusion

Monday, June 15th, 2015

“How could a boy turn into a girl?! That’s impossible!”–boy in video protests; other kids say people are scared of change re: “Caitlyn” Jenner

Our Hero in this Video:

Our Hero in this Video: A young boy in the “She Knows” propaganda video below reacts to Bruce Jenner’s girlish transformation by blurting out: “How could a boy turn into a girl?! That’s impossible!”

Folks, this outrageous and highly manipulative short video was published June 9, 2015 and already had 2,735,765 hits on YouTube as of 11:45 PM Central Time June 14; just 15 minutes later, at midnight, it had 2,737,370 hits. The next day, at 11:00 AM Central, the video had 2,763,413 hits. It was produced by a feminist media outlet called “She Knows,” and this “#HatchKids” project video is titled “Empathy.” It would more accurately be titled “Manipulation”–because kids are super impressionable and these children obviously were guided by adults toward making the “right,” politically correct answers.

Hatch Kids’ slogan is “Content for grown-ups, made by kids with a mission,” but it is the She Knows adults who are on a mission here, and they are exploiting kids to accomplish it. Children have always been the target of leftist revolutionary “change agents”–and revolutionaries in general. Radical feminists and LGBTQueer activists are seizing upon Bruce Jenner’s Hollywood- and media-assisted “transition” to “Caitlyn” to indoctrinate children and the wider culture in the Nature-defying illusions of transgender ideology. So-called progressives, imbued with characteristic self-righteousness and superiority, are selling extreme gender confusion as normal–while those who oppose it are cast as lacking “empathy.” Or, the latter are said to be filled with irrational fears (“transphobes”–sound familiar?). Note the video’s high production quality and the femmy adult questioner, likely a homosexual activist.

The producers include one politically incorrect boy in the video, who at the :49 mark blurts out–in a sole affirmation of Truth–“How could a boy turn into a girl?! That’s impossible!” Needless to say, he’s never seen again in the video. Perhaps the producers sent him to Re-Education Camp.

We are in a hot Information War with liberal “change agents” who worship feelings over reality and transcendent morality. Our foes are far more sophisticated in cranking out devious propaganda like this than we are in defending the natural order and God’s Truth. Please use this video to educate your network of family and friends on leftist/LGBT indoctrination tactics. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera

Chicago ‘Gay’ Bathhouse Steamworks Again Lures Young Men Through ‘Spring Break Student Discount’

Friday, April 3rd, 2015

steamworks_spring_break-1WARNING: Offensive Descriptions of Homosexual Perversions

“Think twice about mixing alcohol and/or recreational drugs with sex. They can reduce your ability to make good decisions and can lead to risky behavior—like having sex without a condom.

“Limit your number of partners. You can lower your risk for STDs if you only have sex with one person who only has sex with you.”–“CDC Fact Sheet: What Gay, Bisexual and Other Men Who Have Sex with Men Need to Know About Sexually Transmitted Diseases,” last updated Nov. 13, 2014


By Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera

If you haven’t noticed, most of the media debate surrounding homosexuality–insofar as the media even consider there to be a legitimate “debate”–centers around “marriage” and monogamy. Precious little attention is given to the actual set of behaviors that not only has made–especially male homosexuality–a dangerous lifestyle, but which also provides evidence that homosexualism is precisely what moralists say it is: wrong, perverse and destructive behavior.

Homosexual institutions, organizations and “gay” sex businesses actively recruit young people to join their ranks. Catering to male homosexual sex is big business. Below we have a particularly wicked institution, Steamworks–a Chicago homosexual bathhouse where men go for indiscriminate, anonymous sexual encounters with other men–trying to lure college boys to its debauched premises. This ad ran last week (March 21-29) on the Chicago Steamworks website:


Wanted: Young Men: Web ad for the Chicago homosexual bathhouse “Steamworks”–part of a North American chain–advertises a “Student Discount” for Spring Break 2015.

AFTAH has called for the closure of homosexual bathhouses in the interest of protecting the public’s health–e.g., women who are infected with HIV by male spouses who secretly engage in homosexual acts on the “down low. ” And we have reported on this particular Chicago bathhouse before. It sits in a large, nondescript building on Halsted Street in the heart of the city’s homosexual “Boystown” neighborhood (officially demarcated with “gay” rainbow pillars lining the streets). In fact, about a decade ago, I joined some hardy souls in a late-night “protest/Christian witness” outside this bathhouse.

For years, Steamworks has participated in the annual Chicago homosexual “Pride” festivities. It is part of a North American chain of homosexual bathhouses–others are located in Berkeley, California, Seattle, Washington–and in Canada in Toronto, Ontario and Vancouver, British Columbia.


What goes on in a bathhouse? I can only know from reading accounts by people who have been there: men young and old pay to get in. They buy a locker for their clothes–$5 off the usual price with a student ID, according to the “Spring Break”ad–and then walk around in a towel, which of course makes it easier to engage in sodomies with complete strangers. Customers can pay extra for a private room.

There is a sauna, showers and hot tub–and surely sodomitic acts occur in all three. Homosexual pornography spews from TVs throughout the building to stoke the hyper-sexual, orgiastic atmosphere. I cannot imagine the hygienic violations at a place like Steamworks but it is telling that in online reviews of this and other “gay” sex clubs, men complain about sticky floors.

The depraved and vile goings-on in bathhouses predictably contribute to the astronomically high rates of STD rates among homosexual men, but the response of government health bureaucrats and researchers to the crisis seems to be to use the bathhouses and “gay” sex clubs as distribution points for condoms and “safer sex” information–rather than to close them down or at least regulate them more tightly. That’s sort of like passing out anti-gambling literature at a racetrack but it has been the politically correct “safer sex” mentality for decades.

REMEMBERING JESSE: The Deviant Homosexual Rape-Murder of Young Jesse Dirkhising

Friday, September 26th, 2014
The 7th-grade photo of Jesse Dirkhising, from the Lincoln School yearbook in 1999 -- the same year he was killed after being raped and sodomized by homosexuals (and lovers) David Don Carpenter and Joshua Macabe Brown.

This 7th-grade photo of Jesse Dirkhising is from the Lincoln (Middle) School yearbook in 1999 — the same year he was killed after being sadistically raped and sodomized by homosexuals (and lovers) David Don Carpenter and Joshua Macave Brown. Dirkhising’s murder was largely ignored by cultural elites — while homosexual Matthew Shepard’s murder was given extraordinary, worldwide media coverage (based on a false “hate crime” narrative).


Update 9/26/2014: Fifteen years ago today, a 13-year-old Arkansas boy, Jesse Dirkhising, was sodomized to death by two older homosexual men who used him as their “sex toy.” This account by my friend and AFTAH adviser Allyson Smith gives the sordid and astonishing facts of his sadistic rape-killing.

Both of Jesse’s assailants, the more sinister (and older), David Don Carpenter, who planned the sickening, penetrative assault on Jesse, and his (their)  lover, Joshua Macave Brown, were friends of Jesse’s mother, Tina Yates, who naively allowed the boy to go away with the men and stay the night in another town. Tragically, Yates’ “pro-gay” attitudes contributed to the cruel death of her son.

We remember this Victim of Homosexuality today. Jesse would be 28 and in the prime of his life today were that life not robbed from him by sadistic “gay” predators who used him for their deviant sexual pleasures. More coming on this. — Peter LaBarbera. AFTAH


The Homosexual Rape-Murder of Young Jesse Dirkhising

No National Cathedral memorial event for Arkansas boy — while “progressives” continue to stoke Matthew Shepard “hate crime” myth shattered by new Stephen Jimenez book

The following article by my good friend and AFTAH writer Allyson Smith is adapted from her definitive 2002 article on the horrific and gruesome murder of a 13-year-old Arkansas boy, Jesse Dirkhising — who died from asphyfixiation and drugging after being brutally and sadistically sodomized by a homosexual man, under the twisted guidance of another (his much older “gay” lover). As WND reported,

“Dirkhising was found by police unconscious on the floor of a Prairie Grove, Ark. residence around 5 a.m. Sept. 26, 1999, his hands bound with duct tape and his mouth gagged. Police later determined Dirkhising had been repeatedly raped over a period of hours, including with foreign objects, by [Joshua] Brown, then 22, and Davis Don Carpenter, then 38….[A]uthorities said after the last rape he was left bound and gagged while his attackers ate a sandwich. He died of suffocation, a coroner’s report found.”

The two homosexual lovers who sexually tortured the boy — Joshua Brown and his older partner, Davis Don Carpenter — were both friends of Jesse’s mother, who reportedly was happy to let her son hang out with the men and even stay over the weekend in their apartment in a town 32 miles away. [Go HERE to read a PDF facsimile of the initial police report of the crime.] In 2000, AFTAH’s flagship newsletter, Lambda Report, reported:

“Evidence from the Jesse Dirkhising case suggest the Arkansas boy’s killers were following bondage and sodomy rituals of the type laid out in scores of books and magazines fueling the growing “leather” subculture — popular among “gay” men — that eroticizes pain, dominance and humiliation.”

As fate would have it, only a year and a few days separate the anniversary dates of the rape-murder of Dirkhising (September 26, 1999) from that of the assault on murdered Wyoming homosexual college student Matthew Shepard (October 6, 1998). But only one murder — with its contrived, convenient and politically-correct “hate crime” story-line — became useful to pro-homosexual “progressives” and the liberal media, while the other was largely ignored.

Shepard’s 1998 murder (condemned by this writer and many pro-family groups and leaders at the time) drew worldwide coverage as a supposed “anti-gay hate crime.” It is still commonly commemorated as such — despite the publication of homosexual author Stephen Jimenez’s new book, The Book of Matt: Hidden Truths About the Murder of Matthew Shepard, which shatters that the longstanding media and LGBT activist narrative that Shepard was targeted and murdered “because he was gay.”

Jimenez, building on his groundbreaking 2004 ABC News 20/20 expose showing that Shepard’s death was largely a drug robbery, demonstrates conclusively that Shepard not only knew his killer, Aaron McKinney — who like him was a methampthetamine dealer — but partied with him and may even have been involved sexually with him. (In his murder trial, McKinney attempted a “gay panic” defense, claiming that he sought to punish the supposed stranger Shepard because the latter came on to him at a bar.) Jimenez interviewed ten sources who testified that McKinney knew and associated with Shepard.

National Cathedral marks Matthew’s death, not Jesse’s

Seemingly oblivious to the well-researched revelations in Jimenez’s book, the Washington National Cathedral, in the nation’s capital, held an anniversary event last weekend in remembrance of the Shepard murder in the context of “honoring gay youth.”

In contrast, there were no national commemorations last week of Dirkhising’s 1999 murder. Conservatives have attempted with little success over the years to get the “mainstream” media to acknowledge that the pedophilic, sadistic-sex killing of young Dirkhising by two homosexual lovers deserved as much coverage as the brutal beating of Shepard. But the response that often came back was that the Shepard case (as an alleged “hate crime”) had something to teach America (i.e., about “hate” and tolerance) while the Dirkhising case was merely another sordid sex crime.

Symbolizing the media double-standard, TIME magazine essayist Johnathan Gregg wrote back in 1999:

“The reason the Dirkhising story received so little play is because it offered no lessons. Shepard’s murder touches on a host of complex and timely issues: intolerance, society’s attitudes toward gays and the pressure to conform, the use of violence as a means of confronting one’s demons. Jesse Dirkhising’s death gives us nothing except the depravity of two sick men. There is no lesson here, no moral of tolerance, no hope to be gleaned in the punishment of the perpetrators. To be somehow equated with these monsters would be a bitter legacy indeed for Matthew Shepard.”

In a courageous work, openly homosexual author Stephen Jimenez has laid bare the many media myths surrounding the Matthew Shepard murder.

In a courageous work, openly homosexual author Stephen Jimenez has laid bare the many media myths surrounding the Matthew Shepard murder — which was a drug crime and not a “hate crime.”

Now the evidence continues to mount that the entire foundation of the Shepard story underlying Gregg’s tendentious thesis is bogus and its true lessons have nothing to with hate or “gay tolerance” — but rather the dangers of meth addiction, drug and alcohol abuse, family breakdown, reckless living and even the effects of homosexual molestation. (Ironically, the Dirkhising story teaches some of those same lessons.) Jimenez documents (HIV-positive) Shepard’s repeated sexual aggressions, and the book ends with this shocking revelation:

“Matthew Shepard was a victim of sexual abuse and molestation as a boy and as a teenager…Apparently, his wounds from being sexually victimized also manifested in another common, but tragic pattern: The victim becomes a perpetrator himself….At age fifteen Matthew was arrested for molesting two eight-year-old boys in his Casper [Wyoming] neighborhood…Matthew’s juvenile arrest record had been quietly concealed.”

Not all crime victims are equal

Unfortunately, there is a politically-correct hierarchy of victims in the United States — and (white, middle class) “gay” victims are at the top while, perhaps, boys seduced and abused by homosexual pedophiles are at the bottom. Most Americans have never heard the basic facts surrounding Jesse Dirkhising’s troubled upbringing and the savage sexual assault that cruelly cut short his life as a young teenager. On the other hand, most Americans have heard a false and grotesquely simplified ‘spinning’ of the Shepard murder that just happens to fit the needs of the “Gay” Lobby and the liberal media who have come to be its most important allies. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH

PS. Americans For Truth has obtained firsthand materials surrounding the prosecution of Dirkhising’s murderers and will have more on this story. We will also lay out in greater detail some of the startling facts about the Shepard murder brought forth by Stephen Jimenez in his The Book of Matt. [Allyson Smith’s article is after the jump]

Whatcott and LaBarbera Get a Trial Date – Oct. 29 – for Canadian Free Speech Test Case

Tuesday, June 24th, 2014

My friend Bill Whatcott–the leading pro-family activist in Canada fighting the aggressive LGBT Lobby–just sent out this notice:

Whatcott and LaBarbera get a trial date

By Bill Whatcott » Tue Jun 24, 2014 12:10 pm

Dear Friends,

I just talked with our lawyer Michael Weber (part of Tom Schuck’s NSWB lawfirm). The trial date for Peter LaBarbera and I for witnessing at the University of Regina will be October 29, 2014. We were charged with Mischief after we set up abortion signs and one sign saying “Sodomy is a sin,” on the public walkway at the University of Regina back on April 14th. Approximately 20 or so pro-abortion and pro-homosexual protesters set up a counter protest across from us. Notwithstanding that I have two Court of Queen’s Bench decisions affirming my right to protest on public university campuses, Peter and I were arrested and charged and the pro-abortion/pro-homosexual protesters were allowed to continue with their demonstration unmolested.

VIDEO: Do You Fear God or Man on Homosexual ‘Marriage’?

Monday, April 7th, 2014

On May 11, 2013, I spoke at a pro-family rally and posed the question, “Do you fear God or man?” on the issue of homosexual “marriage–which, of course, is not truly marriage in the eyes of our Creator. The rally was sponsored by Illinois Family Institute and was held outside of (Republican) State Rep. Jim Durkin’s district office in Western Springs, Illinois. At the time, Rep. Durkin was undecided on a pending homosexual “marriage” bill but he ended up voting “No.” The bill ultimately passed the Democrat-dominated Illinois General Assembly and was signed into law by Gov. Pat Quinn (D). It goes into effect June 1, although unnatural “gay marriages” are already allowed in Chicago and surrounding Cook County due to legal action.   –Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH [Watch this on YouTube here:]

Chick fil-A CEO Dan Cathy Sells Out – Heeds Advice of ‘Gay’ Activist to Retreat on Pro-Natural-Marriage Advocacy

By Peter LaBarbera

Dear AFTAH Reader,

As usual, the Culture War over sexually immoral same-sex behavior is hot, and AFTAH is in the thick of it. We will have more on the regrettable backpedaling by Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy, who says it was a “mistake” for him to speak out for natural marriage. The Atlanta Journal Constitution, which interviewed the chicken fast-food exec, reports:

“Cathy said he decided to step back from the gay marriage debate after prayer and conversations with co-workers and friends, including Shane Windmeyer, a gay supporter of marriage equality who helped Cathy understand why marriage was important to the gay community.”

Talk about snatching defeat out of the jaws of victory!

NOTE: Shane Windmeyer is a homosexual activist and the founder and executive director of Campus Pride, which aggressively pushes for the acceptance of homosexuality, bisexuality and transgenderism on college campuses. Gee, what a shock that Windmeyer wants his friend, Dan Cathy, to SHUT UP about homosexual “marriage”….Lesson for pro-family advocates: in my experience, when Christians “dialogue” with homosexuality activists, the “gay” activists usually end up winning the most concessions and biblical values are compromised.

I wish I could say I’m stunned, but I’ve grown used to Christians and “pro-family conservatives” selling out in the Culture War over homosexualism. As I told American Family Radio talk show host Bryan Fischer Thursday, the “Gay” Lobby is playing hard ball, and Christians are playing tee-ball. Click HERE to view a “Right Wing Watch” clip of my interview with Fischer. And go HERE to view a story in Huffington Post (“Huff Post Gay Voices”) about my comments. (Yes, HuffPo has its own “gay cheerleading” section–No Moral Voices Allowed!)

I told Bryan that Cathy “sold out” all those good Americans who–after all–had rallied by the hundreds of thousands to support his RIGHT TO SPEAK OUT for God’s natural design for marriage as between a man and a woman. I mean, isn’t that why so many people showed up on “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day”–because we were sick and tired of people of faith being silenced by homosexual militants and their pro-LGBT media enablers?

Also, the Journal-Constitution reports, “Progressive website Think Progress earlier this month reported that Chick-fil-A’s foundations — WinShape Foundation and its namesake Chick-fil-A Foundation — “dramatically” cut donations to groups gay marriage supporters consider anti-gay.” AFTAH will be checking into this as well. How sad if this is true.

One last thing: isn’t it interesting that PRO-homosexual-“marriage” execs like Starbuck’s CEO Howard Schultz don’t retreat from publicly speaking out FOR counterfeit “marriage”? In fact, liberal corporations are more sold out than ever in publicly supporting–and funding–All Things “Gay”–so once again it’s the Christian, “pro-family” side that is engaging in unilateral surrender in the battle for Truth on homosexuality and marriage. Meanwhile, the Homosexual Lobby is louder and more aggressive than ever in pushing its lies and demands!

AFTAH will have much more on this story and other examples of Christian defeatism in the Culture War….
