Matt Barber has a new website, Barbwire (which may or may not, as Rob Tinisai points out, be his drag name), which looks to be just a place to reprint by himself and his bigoted friends. One of them is Laurie Higgins of the AFA’s Illinois affiliate, who joins a long list of right wing bigots who want to adopt a Russian-style anti-gay law in this country.
Google’s recent “doodle” announces to the world that Google is gaga over homosexuality-affirming propaganda for minors. Google’s doodle pokes a virtual rainbow-colored flag in the eye of Russian president Vladimir Putin for signing into law a bill that protects minors from homosexuality-affirming propaganda. A financial blockbuster of a company with roots in the country founded to “promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty” pro-actively endorses the propagandizing of children while a corrupt totalitarian cockalorum opposes it. Curiouser and curiouser.
What is curious is how relentless the bigots are to keep up the pretense that the law only exists to protect children against gay “propaganda.” But since they are arrested people for doing nothing more than waving a rainbow flag, that’s both patently false and a rather blatant violation of free speech.
Exposing minors to homosexuality-affirming propaganda is nowhere more troubling than in our public schools where neither children nor teachers are encouraged to study in depth all sides of issues related to homosexuality. Quite the contrary. Curricula and supplementary resources and activities are controlled by “progressive” dogma, the kind of dogma promulgated by the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN). (Privately, “progressive” teachers actually scoff at the suggestion that there are sides other than theirs worthy of study.)
I know, right? Just like they don’t encourage children to check out the KKK side when talking about lynch mobs and Jim Crow laws, or to give ample consideration to the pro-slavery side in the Civil War, or to the anti-woman side when discussing womens’ suffrage. It’s an outrage, I tell ya, an outrage!
