You would think by now that a group like the left-leaning LGBT Network, led in this case by one David Kilmnick, would know better.
Kilmnick self-describes in this article in the Advocate as “someone who has spent over three decades fighting for the rights of our LGBTQ+ communities, particularly safe spaces for our youth.”
Kilmnick is outraged by HBO Real Time host Bill Maher — an unabashed liberal — as follows. Here’s the headline: Bill Maher Has Gone Too Far With Anti-LGBTQ+ Comments He says, in part, this: On last Friday’s Real Time With Bill Maher , Maher said the number of youth identifying as LGBTQ+ is rising because it’s “trendy,” while he spewed other harmful, homophobic and transphobic rhetoric. Maher continued his vitriolic commentary by taking several more potshots at LGBTQ+ youth, including claims that society was “experimenting” on children through the use of puberty blockers and genital surgery as a means to perpetuate culture wars. Maher correlated his comments on “trendiness” with statistics on LGBTQ+ youth in California versus other states, like Ohio, claiming that “either Ohio is shaming them or California is creating them. Kilmnick then goes on to say this: HBO must take immediate action and remove Bill Maher and simultaneously take action to let every LGBTQ+ youth know they are loved. Right.
Full disclosure, I know Bill Maher and have appeared a couple times on his show in the long-ago. The second time, in fact, I was there to discuss my firing by CNN in 2017 because the network was upset at my calling out the far-left Media Matters for its obsession with anti-Semitism. Which is to say, we were discussing free speech in America.
Bill from the left and I from the right agreed that free speech was essential to a free country.
Now here we go again […]
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
