The myth of homosexual oppression -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Posted: July 09, 2009 1:00 am Eastern by Erik Rush Â© 2009 http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=103409 Now, therefore, I, Barack Obama, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim June 2009 as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month. I call upon the people of the United States to turn back discrimination and prejudice everywhere it exists.
â€“Statement released by President Obama, June 1, 2009
There's far more wrong with the above statement than I have space to expound upon here â€¦
On June 29, President Obama held a shameless, retch-provoking pandering session before principals of the American gay and lesbian community. This group, as a voting bloc, wields an inordinate amount of power in the Democrat party and was instrumental in getting Obama elected, hence his perception of necessity in the show of advancing their agenda.
As shall be of little surprise to my readers, the gay and lesbian lobby is counting on Obama to institute sweeping policy changes that will do everything from preventing discriminatory treatment of gays to the legalization of "gay marriage." Who knows; with his Svengali-like powers, perhaps he can even pull off compulsory approval of homosexuality on the part of every soul in America. Because they are such an important â€“ as well as irascible and juvenile â€“ ally, Obama entreated them to exhibit fortitude and confidence in his efforts on their behalf.
I could be snotty and assert that "gay pride" itself is an oxymoron. Instead, I'll just offer some food for thought vis-Ã -vis this inane catch phrase: Let us say â€“ for the sake of argument â€“ that homosexuality is indeed a predilection with which one is born. Isn't celebrating one's homosexuality, then, like a straight person celebrating their penchant for the missionary position? If you frame it like that: who cares?
Don't miss David Kupelian's culture-war classic, "The Marketing of Evil: How Radicals, Elitists, and Pseudo-Experts Sell Us Corruption Disguised as Freedom"
As for Obama, his aforementioned shameless pandering goes back to the 2008 campaign. When he was running for president, he wrote a gratuitously endearing open letter to the Gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender, or LGBT, community. He had an LGBT "Leadership Team." Now, he has an entire subdomain on his website dedicated to LGBT issues.
It's disgusting, and a sad statement as regards the American electorate, that a candidate for president could grovel, bend and scrape in such a manner and even come close to being elected.
It's also a manifest example of the perniciousness of this agenda that the gay population has suddenly become the "LGBT" population. Ingenious how they've managed to insidiously insinuate all things freakish into their poor, oppressed special interest tent.
What's even more disgusting is that during his June 29 panderfest, Obama equated the "struggle" of gay Americans for "equality" with American blacks' quest for civil rights in the 1950s and 1960s. Now, all the junk science in the world isn't going to alter the fact that homosexuality is a choice. There are sufficient experiential commonalities amongst gays that validate this assertion, and no evidence in the area of biological science to suggest otherwise. As such, I have always considered those who make the comparison between blacks and gays as the worst kind of scum. Don't expect me to change my tune just because our precious first black president is making the comparison now.
More disgusting still is the fallacious premise for all of this, being that homosexuals are somehow oppressed in America. They are not. Equating the opposition of Americans toward gay "marriage" (an oxymoron anyway) with oppression, and labeling all who do not unconditionally embrace the gay political agenda as homophobes is beyond disingenuous. Yes, there was a time when gay people had a legitimate reason to be fearful for their safety, their jobs, and their reputations â€“ but that time has passed.
At this juncture, neither I,, nor any other conscientious Americans, seek to disenfranchise gays; we are simply opposed to their lobby's far-left entrenchment and their attempts to redefine morality, marriage and their Orwellian desire for universal "imposed legitimacy." What's going on now is nothing more than boilerplate far left intimidation and mass-scale brainwashing.
This has nothing whatsoever to do with the belief that homosexuality is icky. It has nothing to do with homosexuality being unbiblical. Activist gays and those who support them politically are the ones with whom traditionally-grounded people take exception. If a gay person supports the gay political agenda, they're no different than anyone else who supports furthering progressive ideology that has already proven itself to be detrimental to our nation and our society.
