A Year of Social Media Censorship and Harassment – Even a Frivolous FBI Visit Caused by a Lying ‘Gay’ Activist – for AFTAH in 2018

Wednesday, December 26th, 2018

The following was sent out Dec. 23 in the AFTAH e-newsletter:

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all!

“Precious in the site of the Lord is the death of His godly ones.” (Psalm 116:15)

Using the FBI to Harass AFTAH: Adam Flanders, a homosexual activist and convicted sex offender, “reported” AFTAH’s president Peter LaBarbera to the FBI, leading to an October visit by an FBI agent to LaBarbera’s home. Flanders used the absurd and deceitful pretext that LaBarbera might harass or threaten him at his home in California. The agent told LaBarbera that he presumed the complaint was frivolous. To learn more about Flanders’ tactics and criminal past, click HERE.

We are coming to the end of another momentous year, and it has  been a strange, sad and yet hopeful one for me. Four people whom I loved went on to be with the Lord Jesus this year: my father, Pat LaBarbera; my best friend Brian Fitzpatrick (shown below at an Americans For Truth rally); and AFTAH benefactors Peter Huizenga and Ray Young–two of the finest Christian men God has given me the pleasure of knowing.

The Christ of Christ-mas was, in the final analysis, their hope. He is mine, too, and I hope He is yours. My dad–who was a great husband to my mom and father to me, my four sisters and my younger brother Jimmy–humbled himself and accepted Jesus as Savior very late in life. For that I will be eternally grateful.

My friend Brian, once an atheist, was born again in the Lord (John 3) on May 24, 1987 (he put that date on his license plate), and lived for Him from that point onward. Please share his Christian testimony in this blessed holy season. I will miss him but we’ll meet again!

Ray Young and Peter Huizenga were faithful Christian family men and  businessmen who put Christ first and never once even considered backing away from biblical Truth, in an age when so many find a way to do just that.

Brian Fitzpatrick, shown speaking at AFTAH’s rally at the Supreme Court June 26, marking the third anniversary of SCOTUS’ imposition of homosexuality-based “marriage” on the nation. Read Brian’s Christian testimony HERE.

In their honor but more in God’s honor, we at Americans For Truth press forward with our noble yet politically incorrect mission. This has been a very interesting year: AFTAH became a microcosm of the Left’s evil and homo-fascist “social media censorship” strategy designed to suffocate social conservatives in the Public Square. Heck, we even got a visit by the FBI! … read on:

  • Our Americans For Truth Facebook page was “unpublished” and then “erased” after leftist complaints. 
  • My personal Facebook page has twice been put on 30-day hold after a frivolous “hate violation.” (I’m currently still in FB “jail” but I will be “set free” Monday–oh boy, thanks Mark Zuckerberg!)
  • My Twitter page was blocked based on an absurd “hate” warning about a post showing a nasty, anal-sex-promoting “gay” activist giving his critics the finger.
  • Wasting the FBI’s Time & Resources: Flanders later complained to the FBI and they actually sent an agent to my home on Oct. 26!  The agent asked if I planned to harass or threaten Flanders in California. I said of course not, and alerted him to Flanders’ history of harassing conservatives with false “stalking” charges. The agent knew that the complaint was meritless but said the Bureau was obligated to check it out. The litigious Flanders is now threatening to sue me (and other social conservatives).

Despite all this, we at Americans For Truth keep on doing exactly what the LGBTQueer Lobby is trying to stop us from doing: speaking out in the media against a nefarious and revolutionary sexual agenda that threatens to silence Christian conservative speech even as it corrupts the hearts and minds of young children.

We’ll never quit, because the LGBTQ Lobby never quits, and because it’s God’s Truth, not ours. I echo what my friend the late Peter Huizenga told me, “I will never give up on God’s Truth.” I am not intimidated by this Sin Movement, which must be resisted aggressively, even as its errant followers need the love and forgiveness of Jesus. (AFTAH from its inception has boldly defended EX-“gays” like my brother in Christ, Stephen Black.)

Here is the AFTAH media page link, which contains only a portion of our many media appearances this year. Americans For Truth reached hundreds of thousands of people in 2018 — citizens hungry for someone to give it to them “straight,” unapologetically, about Big LGBTQueer.

These days, even many “conservatives” are afraid to oppose homosexuality–and the Republicans have nearly abandoned this crucial moral issue. But not AFTAH.

The Americans For Truth website is a go-to site for people all over the world who are looking for someone to communicate the “Truth About Homosexuality,” minus the LGBTQ Left’s and the media’s propaganda filters. (And believe me: we still have not gotten close to conveying the full depravity of the Lesbian-Gay-Bi-Trans-Queer agenda.)

VIDEO: Chaps Klingenschmitt Interviews LaBarbera on Azusa Pacific U., Sesame Street’s Bert and Ernie as ‘Gays,’ Adam Flanders’ Web Bullying

Thursday, September 27th, 2018

Here is a Sept. 25, 2018 interview I did with fearless Christian pro-family warrior, Gordon James (“Chaps”) Klingenschmitt, founder of Pray in Jesus Name Ministries. Here is what we covered:

  • New ‘Revoice’ Heresy wants ‘Gay’ minorities in Church. Christian Azusa Pacific University officially recognizes “gay students” group.
  • Peter LaBarbera explains why Bert and Ernie are not “gay.”
  • LGBT complainers, including Adam Flanders. shut down AFTAH’s website, while Facebook “jails” me for for 30 days because I criticized homosexual perversion and LGBTQ activism.

Thank you for supporting AFTAH with your gifts and prayers! [Donate safely online HERE, or mail to: AFTAH, PO Box 5522, Naperville, IL 60567-5522.] — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera

VCY America Interviews LaBarbera on Adam Flanders’ Web Bullying, Bert & Ernie as ‘Gay Couple,’ and LGBTQ Agenda

Tuesday, September 25th, 2018

“Gay” Activism Corrupts EVERYTHING: A homosexual Hollywood writer declared that Sesame Street characters Bert and Ernie were a “gay” couple–a claim that was quickly shot down by the show’s creators. AFTAH President Peter LaBarbera said LGBTQ activists’ penchant for infusing all facets of life with homosexuality is driven by their need to rationalize their own sinful, unnatural lifestyle. Graphic taken from Sesame Street website video.

The following is a description provided by Milwaukee-based Christian radio station VCY America of their September 19, 2018 radio interview with AFTAH’s Peter LaBarbera. Click HERE to listen on MP3. Hosting for VCY is my friend Jim Schneider. We appreciate VCY’s consistently capable and vigilant coverage of this agenda over the years. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera

Pro-Morality Organization Censored While LGBT Agenda Promoted

Posted on September 19th, 2018

​Date:       September 19, 2018

Host:        Jim Schneider
Guest:      Peter LaBarbera​
​Listen:     MP3 ​​​| Order​​

For the full story on the antics of homosexual activist, convicted sex offender and web bully Adam Flanders, go HERE.

Peter LaBarbera is the founder and president of Americans for Truth about Homosexuality, a non-partisan, educational group dedicated to exposing the homosexual-bisexual-transgender activist agendas.

Peter’s organization has become a victim of censorship and intolerance. The story involves a homosexual activist/convicted sex offender [Adam Flanders] who’s on the sex offender registry list in 2 states. In 3 of Peter’s website stories they had a picture of this man’s mug shot from one of his arrests. He didn’t want that photo to be seen, so Peter noted that this individual sends threatening letters to anyone who publishes things like that, while claiming that his privacy is being violated.

This individual contacted the Internet service provider and communicated that his mug shot is a copyrighted picture. The ISP [FirstLight Fiber] wrote to Peter’s web host and gave them 5 days to take the picture down. The next day, Peter’s entire website was taken down because his web host said this is a specious claim and they refused to take the picture down.

HostGator Shutdown of ‘AFTAH Censored’ Site Continues – Also Closes Down MassResistance Site after Adam Flanders Complaint

Saturday, September 22nd, 2018

Censored, Indeed: Visitors to AFTAH’s temporary “Censored” site, www.AmericansForTruthCensored.com, will get this “503 Service Temporarily Unavailable” notice. The site was shut down by HostGator following a spurious abuse complaint threat by homosexual activist and convicted sex offender Adam Flanders.

The web hosting company HostGator continues to block the website of AmericansForTruthCensored.com, which was created after the gay-activist-inspired takedown of the main AFTAH site August 24.

The temporary AFTAH “Censored” site was taken offline by HostGator following an “abuse” complaint by Adam Flanders, homosexual activist and convicted sex offender (“Sexual Abuse of a Minor”), whose email activism led to the shutdown of the main Americans For Truth site. Flanders is listed on the sex offender registry list in Maine and California. For more information on Flanders, go HERE.

HostGator Caves Again: The above graphic is what a web click for MassResistance.org yielded last week after HostGator took down the organization’s  website. HostGator was merely capitulating again to a deceitful “abuse” complaint by convicted sex offender Adam Flanders. MR quickly was reinstated through another web host company; go HERE. Flanders has been waging e-war against MassResistance for years.

Meanwhile, last week another Flanders complaint led HostGator to take down the website of MassResistance, a leading pro-family organization fighting LGBTQ activism. Over the years, Flanders has lost repeated battles with MR regarding content pertaining to him on their site that he wanted removed.

The MR site is now being hosted by Jared Heath’s company, Altha Technology. Heath hosts the main Americans For Truth site that was taken down for more than two weeks after Flanders targeted AFTAH for three separate posts that published his mugshot photo from an assault charge in Maine. He claimed the mugshot photo below was “copyrighted.”

After Flanders appealed to ISP (Internet Service Provider) FirstLight Fiber, with which Heath and Altha Tech. had a contract, the corporation suddenly closed down AFTAH’s entire website.

Flanders is attempting to raise funds for a legal fund “because of the anti-lgbt hate groups targeting me.” Yet he has not responded to a request from Americans For Truth President Peter LaBarbera to publicly and privately apologize to Christian singer and songwriter Paulie Heath, who he cruelly mocked in a wicked graphic distorting her face (see below). See also the LifeSiteNews article on Flanders’ harassment campaign against AFTAH.

E-Bully? Adam Flanders has been waging an e-war of fraudulent web “abuse” complaints against AFTAH and other pro-family groups. He absurdly claims that the above mugshot from a 2006 assault arrest in Maine is his own “copyrighted” property.

No Apologies for Hate: Adam Flanders has not responded to AFTAH President Peter LaBarbera’s call to publicly and privately apologize to Christian singer Paulie Heath (left), whose visage he viciously distorted in 2005 by creating the evil graphic at right. The same Flanders now tweets against “bullying” and “hate.”

ISP FirstLight Fiber Shuts Down Entire AFTAH Website – Kowtows to Convicted Homosexual Sex Offender and Web Bully Adam Flanders

Flanders sends emails claiming mugshot from assault arrest against teen boy is “copyrighted” property; two gullible corporations buy it and close down AFTAH sites

Media Release September 17, 2018
Contact: Peter LaBarbera, [email protected]; 312-324-3787

A “Copyrighted” Mugshot? This mugshot photo of homosexual activist and registered sex offender Adam Flanders is from a November 24, 2006 arrest in Maine on assault charges against his underage boyfriend. Flanders–who later held a knife to the neck of the boy, then 16, to threaten the boy’s dad–is on the registered Sex Offenders list in Maine and California after pleading guilty in 2008 for  “Sexual Abuse of a Minor” for having sex with an underage boy. Flanders says he is the “sole copyright owner” of the photo–and he used that absurd claim to threaten AFTAH’s web service provider, FirstLight Fiber, which bowed to his demands. The photo above was evidently taken after Flanders was arrested on assault charges on November 24, 2006, according to his Criminal History Record as obtained from the Maine State Bureau of Identification. (See page 2 for Assault arrest apparently associated with this “11-25-06” mugshot.) NOTE: Flanders’ claim that the above mugshot photo exposes his Social Security number is also bogus. The numbers on the black card are NOT his SSN number; the information on his jail wristband is not legible. Perhaps that explains why this same photo remains on MassResistance’s site despite Flanders’ fanatical attempts over several years to have it and other material removed.

CHICAGO, IL—The entire website for Americans For Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH.org) was shut down for more than two weeks beginning August 24 after a convicted homosexual sex offender, Adam Flanders, threatened a lawsuit against FirstLight Fiber, the Internet Service Provider (ISP) for AFTAH’s web host company–claiming his mugshot photo from a 2006 assault arrest against a minor boy was “copyrighted” material.

Flanders, a homosexual activist, is a registered sex offender in both Maine and California, where he now lives. He pleaded guilty in 2008 to “Sexual Abuse of a Minor” involving a boy aged 14 or 15. He also admitted to engaging in homosexual sex with his then-14-year-old boyfriend when he (Flanders) was 18–in a 2007 public letter exposing a Maine “gay youth” club. Later, Flanders sought to retract the letter and demanded that web sites take it down.

Flanders has a long history of making such litigious and mendacious threats containing absurd, exaggerated and sometimes nonsensical claims against pro-family leaders and websites that have exposed his past criminal offenses and other actions.

The mugshot photo in question can be viewed at upper right. AFTAH will not take it down because it is obviously in the public domain and not “owned” by Flanders. (Mugshots are routinely used in news stories and political ads.) Note also that after years of Flanders’ harassing threats and even a $1 million “defamation” lawsuit against pro-family hero Brian Camenker and his organization, MassResistance (see below), the identical Flanders 2006 mugshot photo printed by AFTAH remains posted throughout the MR site. Had Flanders’ accusations any legal merit, would Camenker leave them up, risking further ordeals?

Weighing legal options

Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans For Truth, and Jared Heath, CEO of Altha Technology, AFTAH’s web host company, are weighing their legal options against Flanders and FirstLight Fiber, the ISP that capitulated to his spurious email demand. Another ISP, HostGator, took down an AFTAH temporary site (see below); that site, “Americans For Truth Censored,” remains down.

“Flanders’ reckless actions and the ISPs that bowed to them have caused me and Jared Heath, the ex-Marine who runs AFTAH’s web host company, severe emotional and mental distress. They also have caused us significant financial harm and damage to our reputations,” said LaBarbera. “I know Flanders wants to erase his crimes from the web, especially his Sexual Abuse of a Minor conviction, but we will never give in to his intimidation tactics.”

Internet Bully: This vicious and venomous image was created by Maine “gay” activist Adam Flanders to bully Christian singer/songwriter Paulie Heath and intimidate the Heath family. Paulie’s husband, pro-family hero Mike Heath, was head of the Christian Civic League of Maine at the time. See below.

LaBarbera also called on Flanders to privately and publicly apologize to Paulie Heath, Jared’s mother, for the horrific and demented web-bullying graphic he created in 2005 cruelly distorting her visage (see below).

Flanders held knife at teen boyfriend’s throat

As this 2013 U.S. District Court document reveals (p.2), Flanders was arrested again in 2007 for another, more violent crime involving the same boy, now 16. According to U.S. Magistrate Judge Margaret Kravchuk’s decision, Flanders knifed the father of the teen boy lover after violating a court protection order to stay away from the boy. In that altercation, when the boy’s father came to rescue his son, Flanders held a knife at the boy’s throat, and knifed both the father and the boy in the altercation.

FirstLight took down the entire AFTAH website on August 24, 2018, three days after receiving an “abuse” complaint demanding “removal of copyrighted content pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA).” AFTAH site has been up since September 10 using a separate IP address, but Flanders is continually working to take it down, and is again threatening legal action against LaBarbera and Heath.

FirstLight’s reckless takedown of an entire pro-family website containing thousands of articles–based on a single email containing outlandish assertions by a homosexual activist trying to erase his criminal history–demonstrates the growing crisis of anti-conservative censorship in Corporate America.

As AFTAH was reeling from Flanders’ harassment, it learned that Facebook had demanded that the AFTAH Facebook page take down a harmless post involving another homosexual activist, Phillip Picardi. The post, shown HERE and below, shows Picardi taking a selfie of him kissing another man as he defiantly gives the finger to critics upset at his defense of an article promoting anal sex in Teen Vogue, a magazine for young girls. Picardi is digital editor of Teen Vogue.

The following is a sample of Flanders’ previous outrageous and litigious stunts:
