Drain Obama’s LGBTQ Swamp – Sen. Mike Lee Blocks Radical Lesbian Legal Activist Chai Feldblum at EEOC as ‘Threat to Marriage’

Wednesday, December 19th, 2018

UPDATE: VICTORY: LGBTQ legal activist and Obama appointee Chai Feldblum has stepped down from the EEOC, thanks to the principled tenacity of Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah). Please contact Sen. Lee (info below) and THANK HIM for taking action in defense of truth, natural marriage and religious and First Amendment liberty! 

‘Gay Rights’ Over Religious Freedom? Radical lesbian activist and EEOC Commissioner Chai Feldblum (first nominated by Obama) was curiously reappointed to the federal agency by President Trump last year. But her nomination is stalled due to a Senate block by conservative Utah Sen. Mike Lee (R). The above is a screenshot of Feldblum’s Twitter page blocking AFTAH’s Peter LaBarbera–commentary in red is ours–demonstrating her lack of impartiality. Click to enlarge.

We applaud Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) for putting a hold in the Senate on leftist lesbian legal activist Chai Feldblum, whom President Donald Trump foolishly reappointed to the federal EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission) last December. AFTAH has followed Feldblum (an atheist) for many years and fought her back in 2009 when she was first appointed to the EEOC by Obama. By the way, she petulantly blocks me on Twitter, indicating her lack of impartiality and strong activist bias.

Feldblum argues that the battle between “gay rights” and religious liberties is a “zero-sum game” and that LGBTQ legal activists should and invariably will win those fights. I don’t know what Trump was thinking when he reappointed her. After all, he ran for office pledging to his base of evangelical Christian voters that he would ardently defend religious freedom. And “LGBTQ rights” is the Number One threat to freedom of conscience in America today. How about draining that Obama LGBTQ swamp, Mr. President?

Below is a column that Sen. Lee wrote back in February. Please support him by calling his office, and the two Senators representing your state. –Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera

Take Action:

  1. Thank Sen. Lee, online HERE, or by calling his DC office: 202-224-5444. His Salt Lake City office number is 801-524-5933.
  2. Contact your own state’s U.S. Senators through the Capitol Switchboard at 202-224-3121 and urge them to reject this anti-marriage sexual revolutionary at the EEOC.
  3. Contact the White House online HERE or by calling 202-456-1111. Urge President Trump to drain Obama’s federal LGBTQ swamp by withdrawing the (re)nomination of Obama appointee and LGBTQ legal crusader Chai Feldblum.

A Threat to Marriage from the EEOC

By Sen. Mike Lee, Feb. 9, 2018

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah)

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission may seem like an unlikely threat to religious liberty and the institution of marriage. After all, the federal agency was created to combat workplace discrimination by the Civil Rights Act of 1964. But sadly, the agency created to fight discrimination now threatens to discriminate itself; one nominee to the commission’s five-member board wants to use the federal agency’s power to undermine our nation’s founding principles.

Chai Feldblum was first nominated to the EEOC by President Barack Obama in 2009, but she was not confirmed by the Senate. In March 2010, President Obama skirted the Senate by seating Feldblum on the commission when Congress was in recess. The Senate ultimately confirmed Feldblum on a 54-41 vote during a lame-duck session in December of that year. Only two Republicans voted for Feldblum’s confirmation.

Twitter Has Declared War on Biology – Bans ‘Misgendering’ of Transgenders as ‘Hateful Conduct’

Wednesday, November 28th, 2018

Was a man then, is a man now: Bruce Jenner on the cover of the Wheaties cereal box after winning gold in the decathlon in the 1976 Olympic Games. One’s sex is not subjective.

Folks, this is a devastating announcement by San Francisco-based Twitter, which if enforced could lead to the expulsion of hundreds if not thousands of conservatives from the social media platform through politicized “hate violations.” See the recent social media corporate actions taken against AFTAH: by Twitter HERE; and by Facebook HERE and HERE. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; Twitter: @Peter LaBarbera

PS. Bruce (“Caitlyn”) Jenner can never be a woman, because he was born male and will always be a man, possessing male DNA.

Twitter Declares War on Biology

By Dr. Michael Brown, first published 11-28-18 in Charisma News; subscribe to their newsletters HERE.

I recently did a little computer-generated test to help determine my “physiological age” as compared to my “chronological age.” (Thankfully, I was 8 years younger than my chronological age, 55 rather than 63.) One of the first questions I was asked was whether I was male or female. Why? It’s because – brace yourself! – men are biologically different than women. What a revolutionary concept!

But if a computer program is going to determine your physiological age vs. your chronological age, it needs to know something about your biology since, to repeat, men are different than women.

Medical science understands this.

Genetic studies understand this.

Still a man… Click on photo (taken at an International Mr. Leather event in Chicago) to enlarge.

Common sense understands this.

But it appears Twitter no longer understands this.

So, Twitter has updated its terms of service, adding further information under the category of “Repeated and/or non-consensual slurs, epithets, racist and sexist tropes, or other content that degrades someone.”

Specifically, Twitter explains

“We prohibit targeting individuals with repeated slurs, tropes or other content that intends to dehumanize, degrade or reinforce negative or harmful stereotypes about a protected category. This includes targeted misgendering or deadnaming of transgender individuals.”

Note carefully that last sentence, which singles out “misgendering” and “deadnaming.”

Facebook Deletes AFTAH’s Facebook Page, Citing ‘Hate Speech’ Violation

Tuesday, November 20th, 2018

Social media giant cites “safety” concerns and being “respectful,” but by not respecting and tolerating Christian conservatives’ views, is Facebook guilty of ‘hate’ and bigotry?

Facebook ‘hates’ conservatives (or at least their ideas): This is the notice AFTAH received Sunday from Facebook. Jason Salamone is an administrator of the AFTAH FB page. We are appealing the decision. Facebook has “unpublished” AFTAH’s or Americans For Truth President Peter LaBarbera’s pages on previous occasions.

Folks, leftist social media censorship is accelerating, because “power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely” (Lord Acton). On Sunday, [Nov. 18, 2018,] Facebook took down–“unpublished”–AFTAH’s (Americans for Truth About Homosexuality) Facebook page, saying we violated their “hate” standard. We are appealing the decision but unlike Twitter, Facebook does not even let the groups they banish make a case for why the ban is wrong and should be reversed. This ban is beyond Orwellian: Facebook provides no specific examples of *how* our AFTAH posts violated their alleged “hate” standard, but you can see what sort of posts “triggered” these progressive-techie snowflakes HERE, or below.

I tweeted this:

From Twitter: [Sunday] the cowardly yet proficient anti-conservatives at Facebook took down (“unpublished”) our AFTAH (Americans For Truth) FB page, citing violations of their spurious “hate” standards. We are appealing. Look for a piece on this in WND…

Of course, the “hate” charge is spurious and ultimately effectively precludes all MORAL opponents of homosexuality from using Facebook. AFTAH, a Christian educational organization, has from its inception condemned real hatred and violence against homosexuals (or anyone). We have long denounced groups like Westboro Baptist Church with its preposterous “God Hates Fags” message. Please help us spread the word on this cowardly social media censorship of ideas that run counter to “progressive” sacred cows. Thanks. — Peter LaBarbera, Americans For Truth; Twitter: @PeterLaBarbera

Here is an example of an Americans For Truth post that Facebook deemed “hateful”; see full story HERE:

 

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.

A Cartoon about Judging and Transgenderism – Was Creator, ‘Heteros Inspiring Pride,’ Censored by Facebook?

Wednesday, September 21st, 2016

Site vilified by pro-LGBT activists — for using memes to highlight leftist intolerance — disappears from Facebook

By Peter LaBarbera [@PeterLaBarbera]

Folks, here is a good and accurate cartoon meme by a site called “Heterosexuals (Heteros) Inspiring Pride” — which apparently has been kicked off of Facebook (see second graphic below). The creator(s) of this site are despised by the Left for making some cool memes like this one (click on graphics to enlarge):

 

heterosexuals_inspiring_pride_meme_judging_transenders

 

Here is what comes up when you go to the “HeterosInspiringPride” Facebook link at the bottom of the meme:

 

facebook_censors_heteros_inspiring_pride_9-21-2016

 

We’ll try to get to the bottom of this–but I suspect it is just another case of “snowflake” leftists–in this case, biased Facebook geeks–not being able to tolerate criticism and a lively debate over ideas. How naive of Heterosexuals Inspiring Pride to put a Facebook site identifier on all their compelling graphics!

What are LGBT activists and allies afraid of?
