"Another tragic, homosexually related death."

My ex (who was for years part of the deep, dark world of Koch-funded conspirators like the Cato Institute and other boogeymen that makes pro-regressives wet the mattresses in the night -- and yes we are coming for you!) and I used to have two really fun things we did out of bed.  One was for me, in pre-TSA, pre-DHS, pre-Patriot Act days, (in the early 1980s), at the ripe age of 21, to accompany him to the final boarding gate of his plane when he went on speaking trips, and plant a lingering French kiss on him at the check-in desk for the amusement of all the passengers and crew.  (It was more revolutionary back then kids.)

The other was to read the Washington Post or New York Times coverage of some gay person in police custody or a squabble and say "another tragic homosexually related death" since the gay angle did seem to be featured in any mishap with a gay person.

But now we have gay people supplying this bad PR themselves!  Here are two examples.  The first is from the anti-gay, conservative website World Net Daily, surveying death threats by gays against marriage equality opponents.  Whatever you think of their passion, you must admit they aren't good PR.

The second is gay columnist Rick Rosendall in a video telling Washington Times reporter Kerry Picket to "drop dead."  Mr. Rosendall, whom I do know personally, has written for IndeGayForum.com (in our links section) as well as both of the two local DC gay news publications, MetroWeekly and the Washington Blade.  (The Blade by the way, is looking for one conservative, libertarian, or non-politically correct columnist, and even solicited me at an event, but none of my pieces are ever "gay" enough for them, as I tend to write about things that are not "strictly" gay topics, whatever those are.)  Mr. Rosendall, by the way, betrays his ideological blinders in his whispered screeching at Ms. Picket where he tells her she is partisan and ignorant.  He claims DC voters "rejected" education vouchers, the vouchers President Zero and Senator Durbin stole from several thousand poor black DC children a couple of years ago.  He needs this to be true since the modern Democratic Party is funded by selling poor black children to educrat cartels for Democratic Party campaign contributions.  In Mr. Rosendall's own Southern Compromise he wishes to maintain the slave trade in poor black kids if it will fund politicians who will at least throw him a few rainbow crumbs.  In reality DC's poorest, blackest Ward, Ward 8, continues to re-elect former Mayor Marion Barry to the city council and he supports the restoration of DC education vouchers.  And almost 40% of DC parents have pulled their kids out of traditional state schools and switched them to charter schools, with another 5% doing so every year, voting with their feet like refugees from Soviet communism.


Some gays give the anti-gay World Net Daily ammunition, as it were. If you know who they are I think you should consider telling them to stop. It's not good PR. Especially since gay Democrats are among those denouncing tea partiers who mention the Second Amendment as violent fascists. The double standards and hypocrisy already lost you Congress and many state houses and governorships.


Support traditional marriage? 'You're dead'


'I'm a gay guy who owns guns, and he's my next target'

A federal court in Tacoma, Wash., has been asked to order that the names of signatories of a state petition seeking to protect traditional marriage be redacted to protect them from death threats from homosexual activists.


"What is becoming increasingly evident," said James Bopp of the James Madison Center, "is that some groups and individuals, certainly a minority, have resorted to advancing their cause, not by debating the merits of the issue but by discouraging participation in the democratic process itself.


"The First Amendment was designed to ensure that all groups, whatever their persuasion, could participate fully in our republic," he said. That breaks down when some groups or individuals are cowed into silence for fear that they or their families will be targeted or threatened if they speak up."

The issue is the some 138,000 Washington state residents who signed a petition in 2009 to repeal a law that gave same-sex partners all the legal rights of married couples. The petition forced a referendum vote in November of that year in which voters decided to sustain the law.


But because the state considers such petitions "public records," homosexual activists are demanding the names and addresses of the signers in order to post them on the Internet and "publicize on their web sites, in searchable format, the identities of every person who signed the … petition," according to a new filing seeking nondisclosure of the names.

The groups announcing the plans were KnowThyNeighbor.org and WhoSigned.org, according to the filing.

The filing on behalf of Protect Marriage Washingtonexplains the real problem is the documentation of actual threats that have been made against those who support traditional marriage, a litany of what the Los Angeles Times described as a "vengeful campaign.

Among the documented threats:



  • "I will kill you and your family."
  • "Oh my God, This woman is so f---ing stupid. Someone please shoot her in the head, again and again. And again."
  • "I'm going to kill the pastor."
  • "If I had a gun I would have gunned you down along with each and every other supporter…"
  • "We're going to kill you."
  • "You're dead. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but soon … you're dead."
  • "I'm a gay guy who owns guns, and he's my next target."
  • "I warn you, I know how to kill, I'm an ex-special forces person."
  • "Get ready for retribution all you bigots."
  • Burn their f---ing churches to the ground, and then tax the charred timbers."
The evidence included churches marred by graffiti, swastikas on lawns and walls, bricks thrown through windows and doors, adhesive poured into locks, suspicious packages of white powder sent in the mail – "all for nothing more than supporting traditional marriage."


"On two occasions, both in Washington state, a group called Bash Back! boldly accepted credit for vandalizing houses of worship, writing in one case, 'when we [graffitied your walls] and glued all the doors shut, we threw open our own doors and tattooed those words on hour (sic) hearts. Welcome to our world s---heads.'"


According to the filing, "When some activists could sense that intimidation was not working … they resorted to threatening the families – even the children – of supporters. In one case, the perpetrator threated to 'kill' the supporter's child and the whole family; in another, to 'harm' the supporter's family; and in another, to rape the supporters' daughter."


The reason for the demand for the names and addresses was made clear earlier, according to the filing.


"In an obvious attempt to dissuade people from signing the … petition, two homosexual advocacy groups – Massachusetts-based KnowThyNeighbor.org and Washington-based WhoSigned.org – announced their intentions to obtain the identities of every person who signed the petition; to publicly expose the persons on their respective web sites; and to make their web sites 'accessible and searchable.'


"Dave Ammons, communications director for Defendant Sam Reed, posted a blog entry on the Secretary of State's web site explaining that the alleged reason for wanting to publicly expose … petition signers was to get 'voters to think twice about signing' … and to allow opponents to 'be able to talk with their neighbors and townspeople who signed to explain the ramifications.'"


Homosexual promoters have stated publicly they want to post the personal contact information on the Internet so that activists can find them for "uncomfortable conversations."


"We've got affidavits from more than 60 people who were targeted, harassed. There are newspaper reports of more cases. This seems to be a concerted campaign … to attack and stifle the opposition through harassment," Bopp earlier told WND.


When the court case originated, a judge ruled in favor of the signers' privacy, but the ruling was overturned by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. The U.S. Supreme Court then said that the petitions are open records in general but did not determine the specifics of this controversy.


The current request is for a federal court ruling that instructs Washington Secretary of State Sam Reed not to publish the names and addresses.


According to a statement from Bopp, "The question is, Why do they want them? Not only is it unclear what purpose it would serve to release the names at this point, there is also a very good reason not to release them. Together with its briefing to the court, Protect Marriage Washington presented hundreds of pages of documented examples of threats and reprisals directed at supporters of traditional marriage, not only in Washington but across the country. The evidence includes death threats, extensive vandalism, overt threats of destruction of property, arson and threats of arson, intimidating emails and phone calls, hate mail, mailed envelopes containing white suspicious powder, blacklists, loss of employment and job opportunities, and gross expressions of anti-religious bigotry, including vandalism and threats directed at religious institutions and religious adherents – all for doing nothing more than standing up for traditional marriage."


The federal court filing said, "The evidence compiled is overwhelming in demonstrating a 'pattern of threats' and 'specific manifestations of public hostility' … against those who have, often out of a sense of religious conviction, voiced opposition to the homosexual movement. At their core, however, these reprisals are 'not so much anti-religions as anti-democratic.'"
"When dialogue and disagreement degenerate into the thuggery of intimidation and retaliation, civility is lost, and with it our liberties," it warned.
