A must-read: How "gay rights" is being sold to America
POSTED: August 20, 2010
Probably the most disturbing thing about conservative Ann Coulter's decision to speak at GoProud's homosexual activist event has been the support she's gotten from other conservatives!
The liberal blog Politics Daily quotes representatives from National Review, Fox News, and Red State as defending her decision. And some go even further. RightWingNews is a co-sponsor of that event. And well-know activist Grover Norquist is now on GoProud's Board of Directors!
And these are the "conservatives." And it's happening across the country. How has this cave-in happened?
The most incredible propaganda campaign ever
They've bought the product, that's how. The successful selling of "gay rights" to America is among the most incredible propaganda feats of all time. It is well described in David Kupelian's excellent book "The Marketing of Evil: How Radicals, Elitists, and Pseudo-Experts Sell Us Corruption Disguised as Freedom". This book should definitely be in everyone's library.
This week the publisher, WorldNetDaily, posted the entire first chapter: "Marketing Blitz: Selling Gay Rights to America." If you don't have the book this is really worth reading. It will open your eyes to this terrifying and tragic movement that is imprisoning all of us.
Some excerpts from that chapter:
In February 1988, some 175 leading activists representing homosexual groups from across the nation held a war conference in Warrenton, Virginia, to map out their movement's future. Shortly thereafter, activists Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen put into book form the comprehensive public relations plan they had been advocating with their gay-rights peers for several years.
Kirk and Madsen were not the kind of drooling activists that would burst into churches and throw condoms in the air. They were smart guys - very smart. Kirk, a Harvard-educated researcher in neuropsychiatry, worked with the Johns Hopkins Study of Mathematically Precocious Youth and designed aptitude tests for adults with 200+ IQs. Madsen, with a doctorate in politics from Harvard, was an expert on public persuasion tactics and social marketing. Together they wrote "After the Ball: How America Will Conquer Its Fear and Hatred of Gays in the '90s."
Kirk and Madsen's "war goal," explains marketing expert Paul E. Rondeau of Regent University, was to "force acceptance of homosexual culture into the mainstream, to silence opposition, and ultimately to convert American society." . . .
In the "gay rights" movement's relentless struggle to legitimize homosexuality, and in the greater society's veneration of them as heroes of the great civil rights crusade of the new millennium, we've forgotten one thing. In the endlessly clever media campaign that's bamboozled everyone, "restructured their consciousness," turned their hate into love and their rejection into acceptance, something crucial has been lost.
We've forgotten about reality. We've been living in a Madison Avenue fantasy world of marketing images and carefully crafted rhetoric in the foreground, with court battles, fascistlike intimidation, and relentless waves of persuasion in the background.
But what about the truth we've left behind? What about the reality of homosexuality, of what causes it, and of what it means physically and spiritually for those so oriented? Do we even care any more?
Let's rewind and go to [the book written by] former Congressman Robert Bauman, who in poignantly describing his internal struggles against his homosexual compulsions confided that he had been sexually seduced when he was five years old by an older boy.
Did that experience have anything to do with Bauman's future homosexuality?
There was a time when psychiatry, psychology, religion, and common sense all said "yes." In fact, sexually abused young males are "up to 7 times more likely to self-identify as gay or bisexual than peers who had not been abused," concludes the peer-reviewed 1998 study, "Sexual Abuse of Boys," by William C. Holmes, M.D. and Gail B. Slap, M.D.
On that topic, a reader recently wrote to me: "We are a family of eight siblings and the oldest is gay, and has lived with the same partner for 41 years. At various times, my siblings and I have tried to discover why he is gay and none of the rest of us are. We finally found out through an older cousin that my brother was repeatedly sexually molested when he was six years old by a 19-year-old man"...
The people who support this movement and who uncritically believe its lies are exposing their own self-centeredness. It's always easier to follow the left's phony definition of "compassion" which ultimately leads to destruction and misery on so many levels. Real compassion involves telling the truth and helping people deal with their addictions in a healthy manner.
Unfortunately, too many in the conservative movement are selling out and caving in.
