One of the most fascinating projects I worked on in political science grad school was a deep dive into the history of the gay rights movement. It’s really remarkable how few people – particularly those who now spearhead, vocalize, or ally themselves to the modern LGBT political movement – actually know this history. How few know that the early pioneers of the movement were utterly disinterested in any notion of “marriage equality?”
How few know that these gay pioneers regarded monogamy and marital domesticity as the sexual paradigm of heterosexuals, a model they rejected?
How few know that the modern LGBT movement was the brainchild of progressive political operatives who saw this “marginalized community” as a vehicle to ride to power?
How few know that the politicization of gay rights has not only warped many of the original aims of the cause, but also introduced a nefarious element – transgenderism – that actually undermines many of the basic presuppositions behind gay ideology?
All these things persistently flood into my consciousness every time I see some trending story involving the LGBTetc movement and its political/legislative demands. Take the recent vote to codify so-called “marriage equality” into federal law – a vote that included affirmative support from the entire Democrat delegation in the House along with 47 House Republicans.
First, credit where it is due. Though they have enjoyed nothing but the firmest, overwhelming support of the American media juggernaut, the political success of this progressive revolution is, admittedly, extraordinary. Just over a decade ago, President Barack Obama was reiterating his support for marriage being respected as the same institution it had been for thousands of years. Now, you can’t be a member of his party in good standing if you don’t reject that position as outright bigotry, and even if you’re […]
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!
