I’m glad that Kevin DuJan is healthy again and actively blogging at Hillbuzz. He’s a gay man who self-identifies as a Christian, so it is safe to say that we disagree on a couple things. But I enjoy his candor and commentary on many issues. He knows firsthand how vicious the Left can be to anyone who doesn’t follow the company line on all things Liberal, and he has some profound insights into the LGBTQ and pro-abortion subculture.
Here are two recent posts that I highly recommend.
First, see Advice on how to deal with gay family member who’s been brainwashed by the Left, if nothing else for his refreshing thoughts on “gay marriage.”
What’s happening here is classic Leftism…where the Left wants everyone to be victims and martyrs, because that makes them easier to control. The Left has a clear and vested interest in making gays hate their families, because that means the gays won’t ever want to vote the way their families voted…and this helps guarantee more votes to the Democrat Party.
You see how the Left keeps the black community disfunctional, impoverished, and dependent on entitlement programs so that black entrepreneurs never emerge and blacks never achieve middle class status (where they would start wanting to vote in their own economic best interests, and not for Democrats who have kept black people in ghettos for decades).
The same thing happens with gays: as long as the Left can convince young gay guys who’ve just come out that the people they grew up with all hate them for being gay, then Democrats can keep checking off the gay vote every election, using certain wedge issues to keep hate flowing at conservatives and Christians.
It is a well-orchestrated and heavily implemented scheme that’s run unchallenged for decades.
When a young gay guy like your brother starts reading The Advocate or Genre or Out magazine, in his exploration of his sexuality, he starts being brainwashed by the Left without realizing it. The next step is for him to start picking up the Left’s anti-family, anti-Christian talking points, as broadcast by Anderson Cooper, Rachel Maddow, Rosie McDonalds, Sandra Bernhardt, Margaret Cho, Bill Maher, and other mouthpieces the Left uses to make hatred of conservatives and Republicans “cool”.
Being young and gay is partly about the search for acceptance. It’s about feeling different and seeking someplace where that difference is encouraged and not stifled.
The down side of all of this is that young gay guys like your brother fall under the influence of the Left, which fills their heads with the idea that life is just about rocking that hot little gym bod in as little clothing as possible as much as possible, reveling in the nonstop party that’s life in a place like Boystown, and shouting a giant F*** YOU! to everyone back home in Mineral City or Eureka Springs or wherever the guy was from.
It’s horrible, really, this brainwashing.
And the damage it all does is VERY difficult to undo.
Especially in terms of the key wedge issue the Left has used to divide gays from their families — and that’s the term “gay marriage” that the Left makes a line in the sand…which is often evolved into an insurmountable barrier between people who love one another.
I have said this many times before, and I will keep saying it: if gays really wanted full equal rights, they would have sense enough to stop using the religious term marriage and start talking about spousal rights. Better yet, show some of their trademarked creativity and invent A WHOLE NEW WORD for the spousal relationship between two guys and the similar arrangement between two women. DO NOT TAKE A RELIGIOUS WORD and adulterate its meaning. If there is no “gay baptism”, no “gay communion”, and no “gay confirmation”, there should be no “gay marriage”.
Here’s a case study of “The Tolerant Left” at work…in this instance, self-proclaimed “liberal” (read: Leftist) women in New York City who voted for Obama, have always called themselves Democrats, and who hate a woman in their office who’s gotten pregnant, is getting married, and is happily starting a family.
My friend Delphine works in a non-teaching position at a major institution of higher learning in New York City, in an office that is almost exclusively female, Obama-voting, and Leftist. The Big Boss of the office is a ridiculously wealthy Manhattan socialite who enjoys the prestige of her position (hobnobbing with the Mayor quite often, frequently being interviewed for her opinions on matters related to academia, having lunch with celebrity alumni, etc.) and the many millions of dollars her former husband left her, before the divorce. This woman recently came out as a lesbian, and this liberation has turned to militancy on some levels, in that she clearly grinds an axe against women in the office with family responsibilities (since, not having those of her own, she seems to believe people under her on the organizational chart need to be at her disposal 24/7/365, husbands and babies be damned). She is what has been termed an evangelical or fundamentalist lesbian, who braids politics and autocracy into sexuality. Of, course, Big Boss is a big Obama supporter who makes many disparaging remarks during official staff meetings about Governor Sarah Palin, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, columnist Ann Coulter, and other conservative women.
The hatred exuded by Big Boss is real and palpable…she is a very angry woman who takes her emotions out on those unfortunate enough to work for her. She is the tyrant of her ivory towered fiefdom.
Just below her on the org chart is Little Boss, who is unmarried, childless, and upset in her 50s that marriage and children never happened for her (though she’s never stopped to wonder if it was her bad attitude and poor treatment of others that caused any of this). She, too, is a big Obama supporter and also never misses an opportunity to viciously malign Governor Palin or Congresswoman Bachmann in particular, often calling them both the “c-word” right there in the office, in front of the whole staff, as if it was the most natural and professional thing in the world to do.
. . .
Delphine just turned 30 last month, and is expecting her first child. The baby was a total and complete surprise blessing, and she and the father have decided to get married this fall, before the baby comes. Delphine is the most practical and efficient woman I’ve ever known and is not the center-of-attention type. Meaning, just because she’s pregnant doesn’t mean Delphine has morphed into a “Hey! Come look at my sonagram! Come help me pick out baby names!” sort of person, because that’s just not her. Never has been, never will be.
Clearly, she told the office she is pregnant. She told everyone she is getting married. She’s had to adjust her habits a little because of the baby, but has not missed a single beat at work and has not drawn any sort of distracting attention to herself because she is pregnant. She is the model employee, in fact, and she’s damn good at what she does for this university. They are most lucky to have her in their employ.
Well, Big Boss and Little Boss have been harassing her since she told them she was pregnant. They don’t mind her getting married so much, even though Big Boss told her that her fiance is “ugly”, direct quote, but it’s the baby these two have an obsessive problem with.
Big Boss started things off by sneering at Delphine not long after she learned Delphine was pregnant, which Delphine thought was just her imagination for a while. Big Boss is very angry at the world in general and often believes she was snubbed by Mayor Bloomberg or Governor Cuomo or someone, possibly Elmo, so Delphine didn’t realize her pregnancy so offended Big Boss until she had her performance review…and in the middle of it Big Boss started several sentences with “That damn baby better not…” and ended them with “or else your job is in jeopardy!”.
. . .
The problem is that not everyone is as comfortable standing up to bullies on the Left as Delphine. And not everyone knows how to handle this garbage in the workplace.
Because the media protects the Left at every turn, it’s also rare to see stories like this told in print.
I wonder what would happen to the Left and people like Big Boss and Little Boss if “Case Studies of the Tolerant Left” became things regularly published online, from people who deal with this garbage in the trenches and have no other outlets to voice their exasperation.
There is no “Tolerant Left”.
There’s only the Left, in all its dictatorial we-know-best-do-as-we-say INTOLERANCE.
