US State Dept to force gay agenda on foreign nations!
POSTED: March 30, 2012
1. Obama directs State Department and US agencies to force foreign countries to support international homosexual agenda!
Back in July, MassResistance reported how the Pakistanis angrily denounced the US Embassy's open homosexual parties as "cultural terrorism." Well, that was just the beginning.
Now, foreign countries which seek to protect their citizens against homosexuality and the homosexual movement will be actively confronted by America's State Department, foreign service, and other federal departments, according to a Presidential Memorandum released by the Obama Administration announced on Dec. 6.
Full court press against traditional values worldwide
The directive, titled "International Initiatives to Advance the Human Rights of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Persons," is subtitled "memorandum for the heads of executive departments and agencies." It outlines the Obama Administration's orders to various departments, including the foreign service.
Unless countries around the world subordinate their own social and religious values to U.S. demands that they embrace homosexuality and the homosexual movement, they can expect interference from the US government in their internal affairs and punishment -- using foreign aid and in international commerce, trade, banking, travel restrictions, and the like.
Mirroring the homosexual lobby's (and the Left's) traditional tactics, Obama is characterizing this as a "civil rights" quest for homosexuality and transgenderism.
In the memo, Obama declares that America will be targeting foreign countries having laws or customs which "criminalize LGBT status," don't allow LGBT pride celebrations, or allow other "discrimination" against homosexual or transgender behavior. Obama also repeats the homosexual lobby's mantra that there is widespread violence and murder against "men, women, and children for their perceived sexual orientation" causing him to act, but he does not give any specifics.
Obama says in the memo:
"I declared before heads of state gathered at the United nations, 'no country should deny people their rights because of who they love' . . . Under my Administration, agencies engaged abroad have already begun taking action . . . as we in the United States bring our tools to bear to vigorously advance this goal.
Taking specific actions immediately
The memo outlines specific steps that the United States is taking:
Broad spectrum of US agencies part of worldwide fight for "LGBT rights"
The memo specifically engages the following departments and agencies:
The Departments of State, the Treasury, Defense, Justice, Agriculture, Commerce, Health and Human Services, and Homeland Security, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the Millennium Challenge Corporation, the Export Import Bank, the United States Trade Representative, and such other agencies as the President may designate.
As an example, this past week the Department of Homeland Security announced that it is modifying the customs regulations at US borders to expand the definition of the term "family" to include homosexual "families."
Obama has also posted a memo bragging about his "record" already pushing the homosexual agenda.
A committed radical - look for more oppression to come
Even when Obama appointed homosexual activist Kevin Jennings to the Department of Education, people doubted his deep commitment to the homosexual movement. This should quell doubts anyone may yet have.
Take another look the list of federal agencies involved, and the vehemence of the Obama administration on this. Make no mistake about it. This will lead to increasingly brutal oppression against people with traditional values both in America and around the world.
2. On same day: Hillary Clinton pledges $3 million to international homosexual groups pressuring & subverting foreign governments.
In her speech, she said:
This morning, back in Washington, President Obama put into place the first U.S. Government strategy dedicated to combating human rights abuses against LGBT persons abroad. Building on efforts already underway at the State Department and across the government, the President has directed all U.S. Government agencies engaged overseas to combat the criminalization of LGBT status and conduct, to enhance efforts to protect vulnerable LGBT refugees and asylum seekers, to ensure that our foreign assistance promotes the protection of LGBT rights, to enlist international organizations in the fight against discrimination, and to respond swiftly to abuses against LGBT persons.
Starting a worldwide homosexual terror group?
As she said, this $3 million is "to start the fund."
Look for enormous funding to come from various far-left government and private sources. This is quite frightening, because these radical groups can be used to perpetrate all kinds of sleazy and quasi-legal destabilizing and harassing activities in foreign countries that US government agencies can't do so easily.
3. Gov't sanctioned website for homosexual activists in US State Dept. and foreign service reveals how far Obama Administration has taken us.
It boldly describes (and celebrates) homosexual and transgender activism in top government agencies and embassies.
A few articles and links from the website: (We are not making this up! This is actually being done by the US State Department.)
4. US Dept. of Health and Human Services holds "Conference on LGBT Health".
Last summer MassResistance reported that the nation's blood supply is facing new danger from political pressure to change rules regarding homosexual blood donors. The major pressure was to ignore public health principles and bow to dangerous political correctness was from Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.
Now Sebelius is going even further. Her keynote speech centered around new legislation forcing insurance companies to cover the destructive effects of reckless homosexual behavior even if they are pre-existing conditions. She has also worked to have insurance cover "domestic partners," and to extend the coverage for expensive "preventive testing" of homosexual-related diseases and health risks. These new mandates, of course, will help dramatically raise the price of health care for all Americans.
This is not simply a dog and pony show. HHS is serious about normalizing homosexual and transgender behavior in the US health system. Sebelius has also published:
What HHS doesn't talk about
In this Orwellian scenario, the US Department of Health and Human Services doesn't say a word about the extensive well-documented medical and psychological dangers of homosexual and transgender behavior both from an individual and overall public health standpoint. HHS's outrageous direction is a victory for the Orwellian forces of political correctness, but ultimately it is a tragedy (and probably criminally if not morally negligent) for the people will suffer from those tragically addictive behaviors, and all of society affected by it.
Moreover, if ObamaCare survives, it won't be long before we taxpayers will be forced to subsidize "gender reassignment" surgeries and procedures.
5. Will Republicans stop this madness if Obama is defeated in 2012?
A Republican president will almost certainly put in place a new top layer of government officials, and will likely put a stop to the worst of Obama's excesses. But will the trends continue? Will the general policies linger? Will homosexuality still be pushed throughout the State Department and foreign service? Will the middle and lower layers of departments keep their momentum? Will homosexual (and transgender) activists still have a blatantly visible and active role in government and policy?
It depends. Mitt Romney has stated publicly that he strongly supports "gay rights," supports homosexuality in the military, and would appoint homosexual judges and top officials. As Governor of Massachusetts, his administration supported broad homosexual activities in the schools and even trained state social workers to support homosexuality and transgenderism in the youth they worked with. This is not a good sign. Ron Paul supports "gay rights," though to a lesser extent. Newt Gingrich would likely inject much more common sense into government, particularly in foreign affairs. Rick Santorum would probably do the best job of sticking to principles and moral courage in the face of hostile liberals and weak-kneed Republicans, particularly on this issue.
But ultimately in the larger picture, we can't just depend on politicians. It's also up to all of us to refuse to be silenced on these issues. If we don't stand up and be counted and constantly reiterate the truth -- if we don't lead from the grassroots level -- how can we expect our elected officials to uphold these values?
MassResistance will help you take back America!
