Wingnut: Gays Part of Communist Plot to Destroy America

Columns like this one by A.J. Castellitto at Alan Keyes’ Renew America website always crack me up. The paranoia, the dark conspiracies, the complete disconnection from anything vaguely resembling reality, it’s just a delightful stew of stupid. Apparently, gay people are unwitting accomplices in a communist plot.

This is hypothetical…..

If one were determined to take down America; if it were not possible by force; the secret weapon would come from a surprising place….

From out of the closet.

As per number 26 of the 45 declared goals for the Communist Takeover of America (don’t blame me – I didn’t make these up) a strategic, targeted area of cultural infiltration would include the presentation of homosexuality as “normal, natural, healthy.”…

Based on the expressed concerns and priorities of the current administration, it’s almost as if they are living in an alternate universe. In fact, one could argue that both the media and our president have been willfully negligent (considering alternative media reports of increased persecution and hostility against Christians worldwide). Meanwhile, religious conservatives, especially those of the Judeo-Christian persuasion, have been experiencing a hostility of a different sort, pertaining to their reluctance to embrace non-traditional marriage.

However, if we take it back to the “hypothetical,” it would seem as if the same-sex marriage phenomenon has proven an exceptionally effective tool in uprooting our fundamental foundations.

When applied to the “takeover” agenda, it could be perceived that American homosexuals are merely commie pawns unknowingly being used for the hat-trick trifecta destruction of freedom, faith, family…..

What if individuals with same sex desires are merely being held up and exploited as objects of intolerance? What if they are just the means to a much greater and darker end-game agenda…..?

If it weren’t merely a hypothetical, you’d almost believe it to be true…..

I have no doubt that Castellito does believe it to be true, which makes it all the more amusing to me. That anyone could believe that communism is at all relevant in the modern world is funny enough.

    Yeah, first gay male couples are now eligible for tax breaks, and lesbian couple have visiting rights in hospitals. Next thing you know, a centrally planned economy managed by a totalitarian dictatorship!

    Funny though, I don’t recall Marx and Engels ever mentioning homosexuality as a tactic . . .

    I think you misspelled “hypocritical.”

    At least YOU know where you are …

    those of the Judeo-Christian persuasion, have been experiencing a hostility of a different sort, pertaining to their reluctance to embrace non-traditional marriage.

    Most of us couldn’t care less whether or not Christians or their junior partners “embrace” gay marriage or not … just as long as you get out of the way of giving LGBT people full rights and privileges under the law … you know, like all Americans expect.

    What if individuals with same sex desires are merely being held up and exploited as objects of intolerance?

    Okay, I need a translation from Moron to English here! Is he actually saying that LGBT people have not suffered intolerance in the US and are just being used by (snicker!) Commies as a stalking horse to overturn American democracy? Where have I heard that before? … Oh, it was the same thing that was said about Martin Luther King (before he miraculously converted to conservatism after he died).

    Ah, I get it. Keeping gays closeted is a matter of national security, because that way all of the closets will be occupied and can’t be used to hide stashes of arms.

    But I always thought conservatives supported peoples’ right to hide stashes of arms in their closets?

    … it’s almost as if they are living in an alternate universe.

    The problem is that you keep leaking into my universe.

    (By the way,Castellitto, I hope you realize that you are the one who lives in the universe where everyone wears a goatee.)

    Harry Hay, a co-founder of one of the first gay rights organizations in America (the Mattachine Society), entered into a marriage of convenience in the 1930s so he could stay a member of the Communist Party. They were purging the gays at that time. One of his boyfriends, actor Will Greer (Grandpa on the Waltons), quit the Party instead. Doesn’t sound like they were using LGBT people as a strategy back when the Communist Party actually had a modicum of influence in this country.

    Now, look, you know he’s right.

    Luckily, there’s a solution; the gayhomos just have to shut up and sit down. Sure, they’ll be objects of scorn and derision again, also violence, and yes, they’d be randomly prosecuted for their activities (or, failing that, their existence), but it will be a small price for people other than me to pay to fight Communism.

    actor Will Greer (Grandpa on the Waltons)

    Geer, actually.

  • dugglebogey

    Is it the actual buttsex that destroys america? Even if the gays quit completely, would buttsex with a woman also cause the demise of this (apparently incredibly fragile) nation?

  • Trebuchet

    The biggest Stalinist in the world today is Vladimir Putin, who is totally promoting the gay agenda.

    This is just wrong. He pretends as if the gays are somehow the victims here, when we all know that they’re the masterminds behind it.

    Back in the USSR, Bourgeois Vice (“Crocketovich, is time for busting of drugs importer down at warf!” “Tubbsichi, I am in agreement for this!”) was a huge show, back in the 80s. It would have been even bigger, but nobody had TVs.

    What is this “Communist Takeover of America?” A book? And what are the other 44 declared goals? Although, it seems that these shouldn’t be listed as goals but as strategies, since the goal is a commie takeover. Even if he didn’t make it up, he probably knows who did.

    It appears that the original source is from this book, written by this fine fellow. Going by his history, my guess is he just claimed a bunch of things he didn’t like were obviously part of a communist takeover plan. A quick perusal of google results shows that a ton of right-wing sites use it as evidence that current society is going down the tubes, but nothing seems to indicate that this list was part of some official communist-group’s plan.

    The book is from 1958. Fortunately, the arbitrary association of “things we don’t like” with “communism” is completely a thing of the past.

    It’s a pastiche of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, you can find it at this link.

    The ultimate source is the 1958 book The Naked Communist by the late delusional Mormon whackaloon (and supporter of the John Birch Society) Cleon Skousen, one of the founding philosophers underpinning the modern Sovereign Citizen’s movement; David Barton seems to be cut from similar cloth, although I’m not aware of any direct connection.

  • colnago80

    Re abb3w @ #20

    Skousen was a former FBI agent who was a pal of J. Edgar. He is sometimes paired with a former Australian Fred C. Schwarz who wrote a tome entitled, You Can Trust the Communists (to do just as they say). Ole Fred also founded the Christian Anti-Communist Crusade.

    No, no, no. We now know that communism was the strategy. The goal has been to ram the gay agenda down our throats.

  • lorn

    “As per number 26 of the 45 declared goals for the Communist Takeover of America (don’t blame me – I didn’t make these up) ” …

    The list doesn’t come from any communists party plan, it comes directly from the book: “The Naked Communist” written in 1958 by Cleon Skousen.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Naked_Communist

    Cleon Skousen “disregarded all federal regulatory agencies and argued for the abolition of everything from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration to the Environmental Protection Agency.[24] He also wanted to repeal the minimum wage, eliminate unions, nullify anti-discrimination laws, sell off public lands and national parks, end the direct election of senators, eliminate the income tax and the estate tax, remove the walls separating church and state, and end the Federal Reserve System.”

    From: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cleon_Skousen

    Skousen is a real piece of work. He is a favored source of tragically wrong history for many on the right.

    In other words A.J. Castellitto, an anti-gay bigot, posted at Alan Keyes’ Renew America website a claim based upon a list in the book “”The Naked Communist” written by Cleon Skousen, a right wing nut case, and misrepresents this list as being written by the communist party.

    There is so much wrong there they have to stack it up.

    If you want to divine what other parties are intending it might be best to limit yourself to writing produced by those parties and avoid citing materials written by their critics as original source materials.

Do you know there are radicals in this country? There are commies that meet up in Cali in the 90s and discuss ways to take down America?

    So marriage is what? Arbitrary….? It’s what based on what?

    “Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.”

    “I sought everywhere in vain for the secret of their succeess, until I entered the church. It was there, as I listened to the soul-equalizing and soul-elevating principles of the Gospel of Christ, as they fell from Sabbath to Sabbath upon the masses of the people, that I learned why America was great and free, and why France was a slave.”

    If you really want truth follow the money trails….. At the end of those trails you will find your truth & your agenda…… God Bless!

    Aah, looks like we have our very own semi-housetrained wingnut!

    The wikipedia article on Clousen includes the following:

    In fall of 2007, political commentator Glenn Beck began promoting The 5,000 Year Leap [Another piece of Clousen drivel] on his show, describing it as “divinely inspired” and written by someone “much more intelligent than myself”.

    Now that’s what I call damning with faint praise!
