Wingnut: Gay Rights Advocates Are Terrorists!

The competition for bigoted right wingers to see who can come up with the most offensive and hyperbolic comparisons for gay people continues. Joanne Moudy at Townhall.com goes for broke and says gay rights advocates are “terrorists” engaged in a “multifaceted assault on our humanity.”

When the word ‘terrorism’ is used today, most people equate it with Muslim extremists, radical bombings and hijacked aircraft. But there’s another form of terrorism happening right here in America, and the perpetrators are out to destroy the very fiber of our Judeo-Christian heritage and U.S. Constitution. Welcome to the bloody LGBT battlefield where everyone is fair game in a relentless, multifaceted assault on our humanity….

If our elected officials don’t take a firm stand immediately and get actively involved to halt these non-stop assaults on our Constitutional rights, we’re doomed. Conservatives and Republicans must raise their voices before it’s too late.

As Arizona Congressional candidate for D-2, Chuck Wooten recently wrote, “In this era of extreme political correctness, it’s almost surreal that such a small fraction of our society is allowed to torment average citizens over something as fundamental as the Constitutional right of religious freedom. The ACLU’s predictable tactic is “death by a thousand cuts,” but it’s seldom successful. The time for sanity in these situations is at hand and Americans of faith must stand strong and fight tyranny in whatever form it takes.”

The LGBT has systematically embarked on a violent war against anyone who doesn’t tow the line and jump into bed with their sexual promiscuity and deviance, and it’s refreshing to see some serious candidates step up and say, “Enough is enough.” But sadly, if more elected officials don’t defend our constitutional rights in a timely fashion, the hour of opportunity will pass and our religious freedom will evaporate before our eyes.

This kind of idiotic and extremist rhetoric is great red meat for bigots, but does it actually help them convince anyone? I highly doubt it. I suspect that for the vast majority of people, even those who may initially have opposed same-sex marriage, such rhetoric just makes them roll their eyes.

    As usual, remarkably few changes are needed to alter this from a screed against the LGBT movement to a racist screed that would have fit in during the Virginia v Loving era.

    … bloody LGBT battlefield …

    It seems to me that most of the real blood on this battlefield is that of LGBT individuals.

    The LGBT has systematically embarked on a violent war …

    ?!?

    When the word ‘terrorism’ is used today, most people equate it with Muslim extremists, radical bombings and hijacked aircraft.

    Actually, when I hear the word “terrorism,” I think of the right wing militia movement and various “Christian Identity” racialist organizations and the anti-reproductive rights movement.

    But there’s another form of terrorism happening right here in America….

    Exactly, right here in America!

  • Kevin Kehres

    Violent war … right.

    Except without the violence. Or the war.

  • D. C. Sessions

    If I parse that correctly (never a sure thing), he’s arguing that in order to preserve the First Amendment right of Christians to oppress LGBT, it’s imperative that something more than half of the people of the USA be immediately silenced in print and speech and in particular that they be prevented from petitioning their governments.

    Well, he certainly has his priorities lined up.

  • Larry

    something as fundamental as the Constitutional right of religious freedom

    To paraphrase the First Amendment to the Constitution,

    the United States Constitution prohibits the making of any law respecting an establishment of religion, impeding the free exercise of religion,

    Your homework assignment is to explain how gay rights violates your right to the free exercise clause. Please cite specific examples. Pictures of government agents in the act of violating those rights will receive extra credit.

    Uh-oh, I don’t even know where that bed is. Can someone give me directions before the LGBT terrorists get me? And what line do I have to tow and where do I tow it to?

    I don’t think this can even be categorized as “hyperbolic.” It would have to at least be categorically similar to reality, but this is downright delusional. Especially this:

    it’s refreshing to see some serious candidates step up and say, “Enough is enough.”

    “Refreshing”! As if there haven’t been candidates doing this for decades! Oh, yeah, only now have any politicians been brave enough to stand up to the Rainbow Shirt Gaystappo.

    Will someone please explain to Ms. Moudy that a glitter bomb is not a real bomb?

    Re Pierce Butler @ #9

    Considering the heavy rumors about Perry being a switch hitter, that shows a lot of chutzpah on his part. Maybe there was a Freudian slip there and Perry is admitting to have genetic coding for same sex attraction which he tries to fight it off.

    Texas Governor Rick Perry (R-Moronistan) just today equated being gay with being an alcoholic. Even for someone as dumb as Governor Goodhair, that’s like not even trying any more.

    anyone who doesn’t tow the line and jump into bed

    Idiots can’t even get their idioms right! You don’t tow the line. You tow the boat, or the car. You use a tow line to do these things. When you “conform” to a rule, whether jumping into bed or not, you toe the line!

    Think of it as Apologetics. It’s less to get you in to the fold and more to keep in the already convinced.

  • dugglebogey

    Terrorism is about instilling fear. The only fear (other than the fear of those funny feelings inside that you don’t understand) is that they’re afraid that they can’t openly espouse bigotry and hate in public anymore without people calling them bad people.

    A violent war? What violence? I doubt there is, because if there was even one single example, they would never stop screaming about it.

  • dugglebogey

    What a dickhead. Talking about the LGBT “Violent War” then giving examples of several lawsuits.

    Oh the violence, will it ever stop?

  • John Pieret

    the perpetrators are out to destroy the very fiber of our Judeo-Christian heritage and U.S. Constitution

    Yeah, those bastards are destroying our Constitution by trying to enforce it!

    And then I read the news about what happened in Detroit. I cannot become angry and stay angry over such things or I will die a crotchety old fart. So. “How many tough guys from Detroit does it take to beat up a gay guy? Eight.”

    So, Joanne Moudy, is this the sort of thing you intended?

  • Claudia Sawyer

    Is there a style book that suggests what percent of the time they should use: “Judeo-Christian”?

  • Scientismist

    “Our Judeo-Christian heritage”; “assault on our humanity”; “Enough is enough”.

    That last phrase does take me back. It’s what I recall George Will (then editor of the National Review) and other faith-fueled gay-haters using as a rallying cry 36 years ago in support of the Briggs Initiative (Prop 6) in California, a law that would have required the dismissal of any public school teacher who was gay, or who even publicly supported gay rights. Not even (the yet to be sanctified) Ronald Reagan could swallow that one.

    Does their Judeo-Christian heritage and religious freedom really require that they deny the humanity of others? Is it really enough that they no longer execute or imprison us, or sew pink triangles on our clothes?

  • dingojack

    Thorne – Clearly due to their BUTCH, MANLY and definitely NOT GAY nature, they need to be towed* (with feigned reluctance) into bed with a same-sex partner, despite how irresitably delicious they find the idea of HAWTSWEATYMANBUTSEKS to be. Manfully resisting allows BIGHOMO to shove it down their throats (if not once, then a few times anyway). Assuming emission doesn’t occur first, of course.

    The important thing, when waging war, is to have a flag. I learned this from Eddie Izzard. The gheys have their homo rainbow flag.

    Texas, people, Texas. It’s a reference to the Alamo. Being before football, the almost-unanimous decision to stay and die wasn’t because of “shifting the goalposts.” Instead, those larger-than-life heroes of the Lone Star Republic actually “towed the line” to get everyone on the same side.

    Actually is a bare-knuckle boxing idiom. The contestants had to begin ‘toe to toe’ on either side of a line drawn across the ring.(c early 1800’s).

    Joanne Moudy states:

    Welcome to the bloody LGBT battlefield where everyone is fair game . . .

    The only bloody people I know in this conflict are LGBTs; where conservative Christians provide the “moral” justification to hate and inflict violence against LGBTs.

    A local evangelical church has recently been posing, falsely, as being against bullying. That while continuing to abuse the gay children that are forced to attend that church. They recently exposed their hypocrisy even further by having some Duck Dynasty “stars” attend their annual music festival: http://bigticketfestival.com/big-ticket-country/.
