Illinois Congressional Candidate Democrat Sean Casten Refuses to Disavow ‘Gay’ Cyber-bully Dan Savage

Wednesday, October 31st, 2018

WARNING: Offensive graphic (created by hateful homosexual militant)

Dan Savage’s “Progressive” Hate: When it comes to dishing out “progressive” hate, few activists on the Left can match the antics of Dan Savage, homosexual-bisexual-transgender activist, sex columnist, author and pornographer. Here is a graphic from Savage’s hate-site, Santorum.com–which he created to demonize and literally destroy the name of Rick Santorum, former Senator from Pennsylvania. Dan and his left-leaning fans came up with this mean-spirited, grotesque “definition” after Savage was offended by something Santorum had said. It is telling that Savage decided the best way to punish Santorum was to associate his name with a disgusting by-product of homosexual sodomy. Despite his hateful stunts and anti-Christian rhetoric–including “flu terrorism” against GOP presidential contender Gary Bauer and an “Impeach the Mother-[F–k-r] Already (ITMFA)” campaign against President Trump, most media, and apparently Democrat politicians like Sean Casten in Illinois, treat Savage like a cultural hero. See video showing Savage’s anti-Christian bigotry below, and the Breitbart story on Casten HERE.

Folks, the Democrats have become the Party of Homosexual-Bisexual Transgender activism and the Abortion Lobby. Here in Illinois (in Congressional District 6), we witness the incredible spectacle of Sean Casten, the Democratic challenger to Rep. Peter Roskam (R), refusing to take back his stated admiration of homosexual activist and proud cyber-bully Dan Savage. AFTAH readers will recall that Savage is the creator of the vile hate-site depicted above, Santorum.com–demonizing and mocking former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum. Breitbart has the story:

Democrat Sean Casten Refuses to Disavow Anti-Christian Bully Dan Savage in Debate Against Peter Roskam

By Joel B. Pollak, Breitbart News, Oct. 22, 2018

Democrat Sean Casten embraced anti-Christian bully Dan Savage in a debate Monday evening against incumbent Rep. Peter Roskam (R-IL) over the seat for the 6th congressional district of Illinois.
Casten, challenged to defend some of the harsh rhetoric he has used in his campaign, and some of the controversial figures he has embraced, refused to dissociate himself from Savage (at 9:27 in the Facebook video of the debate).

“The person I embraced — and I will stand to this day — is Dan Savage, who has been a voice for the LGBT community, and particularly for the It Gets Better project, of teens who were considering suicide.”

Savage, a talented sex advice columnist, founded the “It Gets Better” organization to help gay and lesbian teenagers overcome bullying by peers.

Ironically, Savage then became a bully himself, publicly shaming Christian teenagers at a high school journalism conference in April 2012, abusing his position at the podium to mock their beliefs.

In a video of the event (below), Savage trashed the Bible as “bullshit”:

The Bible — we’ll just talk about the Bible for a second. People often point out that they can’t help with the anti-gay bulling, because it says right there in Leviticus, it says right there in Timothy, it says right there in Romans, that being gay is wrong. We can learn to ignore the bullshit in the Bible about gay people the same way we have learned to ignore the bullshit in the Bible about shellfish, about slavery, about dinner, about farming, about menstruation, about virginity, about masturbation — we ignore bullshit in the Bible about all sorts of things.

Some students cheered, but others walked out in protest. Savage later taunted those who left: “So you can tell the Bible guys in the hall that they can come back now, because I’m done beating up the Bible.”

He went on to call the students “pansy-ass” for protesting, then offered a fake “apology” for hurting anyone’s feelings, adding, “I have a right to defend myself and to point out the hypocrisy of people who justify anti-gay bigotry by pointing to the Bible and insisting we must live by the code of Leviticus on this one issue, and no other.”

Casten justified his support for Savage by suggesting that Roskam, in his sixth term, is not pro-LGBT.

“Mr. Roskam has been a horrible advocate for that community. Maybe he doesn’t like that I support them, but I do.” ….  [Article continues at Breitbart News]

UK Scholars Speak Out Against ‘Transgender’ Despotism

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2018

Scholars note suppression and censorship of academic criticism, harassment, plots to dismiss critics

Trans Power: The above graphic appeared on the Transgender Law Center’s website the day after Donald Trump’s presidential victory in 2016. The colors mimic those of the “Transgender Pride flag,” the equivalent of the “rainbow flag” long used by “gay” activists. Click to enlarge.

By Gina Miller, 10-23-18

More than fifty scholars who work at universities in the U.K., U.S., Australia and elsewhere, and are part of a group of over a hundred, have signed a letter that was published last week in the U.K. Guardian. They expressed their concern about the detrimental effects of political correctness and the “trans” lobby on their ability to research and report their findings regarding so-called “transgenderism.”

The scholars are from a myriad of fields, as they note:

Our subject areas include: sociology, philosophy, law, criminology, evidence-informed policy, medicine, psychology, education, history, English, social work, computer science, cognitive science, anthropology, political science, economics, and history of art.

In part, they express their worries:

We are also concerned about the suppression of proper academic analysis and discussion of the social phenomenon of transgenderism, and its multiple causes and effects. Members of our group have experienced campus protests, calls for dismissal in the press, harassment, foiled plots to bring about dismissal, no-platforming, and attempts to censor academic research and publications. Such attacks are out of line with the ordinary reception of critical ideas in the academy, where it is normally accepted that disagreement is reasonable and even productive.

How unsurprising. The aggressive pushers of “tolerance” are bullies. And just like in the United States under Barack Obama (or whatever his name is), these militant homofascists have imposed their propaganda will on schools and universities in the UK:

Many of our universities have close links with trans advocacy organisations who provide “training” of academics and management, and who, it is reasonable to suppose, influence university policy through these links. Definitions used by these organisations of what counts as “transphobic” can be dangerously all-encompassing and go well beyond what a reasonable law would describe. They would not withstand academic analysis, and yet their effect is to curtail academic freedom and facilitate the censoring of academic work.

Nothing about “transgenderism” would withstand any kind of rational analysis or scrutiny, because its very basis—the notion that a man could possibly be a woman, and vice versa—is not simply wrong, it’s crazy-wrong, a million pseudo-scientific claims to the contrary notwithstanding.

Twitter Locks Out AFTAH’s Peter LaBarbera over 2016 Tweet Calling Homosexual Sodomy a ‘Sin’ that ‘Spreads Disease’

Wednesday, October 17th, 2018

Social media giant rejects appeal; with tweet deleted, account is now active

UPDATE: LaBarbera Loses Appeal: Early this morning (Oct. 19, 2018), Twitter rejected Peter LaBarbera’s appeal regarding what it alleged was an “abusive” and “hateful” 2016 tweet. The tweet called sodomy a “sin” that “spreads disease” and urged a homosexual activist to abstain from it for life. [See LaBarbera’s appeal-letter HERE in LifeSiteNews–which was similarly “locked out” by Twitter for a 2014 tweet pertaining to homosexual health risks; the next day, Twitter reversed itself following a petition campaign by LSN.]

With his appeal denied, LaBarbera deleted the tweet in question from his Twitter feed, and was reinstated by Twitter. See his now-active Twitter page HERE. –AFTAH

Is disagreeing on Twitter “hate”? The above is the “lockout” notice received by AFTAH president Peter LaBarbera Monday, highlighting a 2016 tweet it says was in violation of Twitter’s “rules against hateful conduct.” Jay Franzone is a homosexual activist who abstained from sex for one year so that he could give blood, according to the FDA gay-blood-donation policy revised in 2015. LaBarbera has appealed the decision by Twitter and he cannot access his Twitter account — @PeterLaBarbera — which remains locked out. Read his appeal letter HERE.

To read Peter LaBarbera’s appeal to Twitter and its CEO Jack Dorsey protesting their decision to lock him out for the above tweet, which it alleges is “hateful,” see his full letter in today’s LifeSiteNews. Stay tuned for more on this story.

Sen. Collins Remarks on Judge Brett Kavanaugh and Homosexual Marriage and Abortion Give Social Conservatives Pause

Saturday, October 13th, 2018

Republican Sen. Susan Collins of Maine is largely credited with helping save the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh as Supreme Court Justice–with her reasoned speech Oct. 5 on the Senate floor in his defense. But what many conservatives papered over during the confirmation battle, especially after it turned very ugly with a serious of uncorroborated sex-assault claims against Kavanaugh, is Collins’ assertion that he can likely be counted on uphold both the Obergefell v. Hodges and Roe v. Wade rulings. Those decisions effectively imposed homosexuality-based “marriage” and abortion on all 50 states, respectively.

Below is the excerpt of Collins’ speech dealing with these two social and “culture war” issues. It should be remembered that three former SCOTUS Justices appointed by Republican presidents–Anthony Kennedy (appointed by Reagan), Sandra Day O’Connor (also appointed by Reagan) and Justice David Souter (appointed by George H. W. Bush)–often sided against social conservatives on abortion and homosexuality. We hope Justice Kavanaugh, who clerked for and effusively praised the retiring Kennedy (a hero to LGBTQ activists) will not follow in their footsteps. [The full text of Collins’ speech is HERE.] — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; Twitter; @PeterLaBarbera

____________________________

Sen. Susan Collins:

…Others I’ve met with have expressed concerns that Justice Kennedy’s retirement threatens the right of same-sex couples to marry. Yet, Judge Kavanaugh described the Obergefell decision, which legalized same-gender marriages, as an important landmark precedent. He also cited Justice Kennedy’s recent masterpiece cake shop opinion for the court’s majority stating that “the days of treating gay and lesbian Americans, or gay and lesbian couples as second-class citizens who are inferior in dignity and worth are over in the Supreme Court.”

Knight: SPLC – Hate, Inc. – Loses the Pentagon but Gains Silicon Valley

Friday, October 12th, 2018

Fake “Hate”: Above is the entry for Americans For Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH) on the Southern Poverty Law Center’s (SPLC) “Hate Map.” The spurious map lops conservative groups opposing the LGBTQ agenda, illegal immigration and radical Islam with fringe racist groups like the KKK. The SPLC is leading the Left’s smear campaign against conservatives, with its strategy of labeling Christian moral advocates and cultural opponents as “haters” to marginalize them in the public square.

__________________________

By Robert Knight

The hate business may not be what it used to be – at least on the government level.

The Defense Department has become the latest federal agency to sever ties with the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), an Alabama-based, hard-left group whose “hate map” is being used against Christian groups.

Well, bully for the Pentagon for showing that bully to the door.

The DOD’s pullback from the SPLC was reported by the Daily Caller, which said that a Justice Department attorney stated in an email that the DOD “removed any and all references to the SPLC in training materials used by the Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute (DEOMI).”

In 2014, the FBI dropped the SPLC from its resources page after congressional staff, acting on behalf of the Family Research Council (FRC) and other Christian groups on the “hate map,” met with FBI officials to discuss their concerns, according to the Daily Caller.

Once hailed for tracking the Ku Klux Klan and other extremists, the SPLC has in recent years been wielded against mainstream Christian organizations over their defense of Biblical sexual morality and marriage.

If you say out loud that men are different from women, you just took a big step toward the “hate map.”  If you say that marriage necessarily involves both sexes, bingo.  And if you say that it’s not loving to steer boys into identifying as girls, you might earn an SPLC mention alongside skinheads and Neo-Nazis.

The SPLC also targets those who oppose illegal immigration and those who believe Islamic expansionism is a threat to freedom.  All in all, the SPLC might want to consider changing its name to Hate, Inc….

Famous San Francisco Drag Queen Used to Teach Honesty to 2nd Graders in New California Textbook

Thursday, October 11th, 2018

The following is a media release by the California Family Council:

World Famous Drag Queen Used to Teach Honesty to 2nd Graders in New CA Textbook

A famous San Francisco Drag Queen with a prostitution record named Jose Julio Sarria is lauded for his honesty in a new second-grade textbook being introduced in school districts throughout California. Elk Grove parents will have an opportunity to view the textbook and offer their comments at the school district headquarters tomorrow afternoon.

The new curriculum was created to comply with a 2011 state law requiring that LGBT historical figures be added to K-12 history curriculum. Although the California State Board of Education recommended several textbooks that comply with the FAIR Education Act, the final decision on which textbooks to use is in the hands of local school districts.

“California textbooks should provide information, not indoctrination. Many parents have strong objections to equating the moral character of Abraham Lincoln and Martin Luther King to a drag queen with a criminal record,” said California Family Council President Jonathan Keller. “In addition, many mothers and fathers find it highly inappropriate to introduce six and seven-year-old children to transgenderism, cross dressing, sexual orientation, and other controversial sexualized topics. The law does not require this and educators should not accept it.”
