Having been humiliated at home, with Americans rejecting their outrageous lies and bigotry, two activists who run organizations dubbed hate groups by the Southern Poverty Law Center, are taking their venomous act overseas. Porno Pete LaBarbera, founder of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality, and Scott Lively, author of the Holocaust revisionist book, The Pink Swastika, are holding a press conference in Washington to announce the launch of their new hate venture. According to their press release:
The Coalition for Family Values, whose purpose is to unify and coordinate pro-family groups around the United States and the world to more effectively oppose the now-global LGBT agenda.
People have often asked why we cover these clowns. It is because when they go overseas they are often treated as experts, rather than discredited extremists. Lively is a fascist who has influenced anti-gay policies in Russia and Uganda — among other places. Porno Pete recently visited the homophobic enclave of Jamaica to promote intolerance in a land that is already hostile to LGBT people.
LaBarbera and Lively know that they have no chance to succeed in nations that protect free speech and freedom of assembly. In such countries, people learn the truth about LGBT people over time and lose their fear. This leads to acceptance and eventually equal rights. These two nefarious charlatans understand very well that they aren’t persuasive and never win logical arguments. Thus, they have become fascists and now campaign in nations that lack basic liberties and human rights protections. If they can criminalize coming out in these backward lands, LGBT people have no chance to share their stories and change public opinion. They know they can’t win with a free and fair debate, so they are helping to enact brutal, repressive laws to cut off debate before it begins.
What these two fascists are doing is unconscionable, despicable, and downright unAmerican. They are campaigning to ensure that LGBT people abroad don’t have access to the same basic constitutional protections we have in the United States. As such, they are working against American interests and conducting a form of shadow foreign policy that undermines our most basic values. The headline of their press release says it all: “New International Coalition Praises Russian Pro-Family Laws and Urges Other Countries to Follow Suit.”
Why would Americans rally in support of a totalitarian police state that has enacted a blasphemy law, persecutes minorities, and prosecutes political opponents? Why would people who claim to care about free trade and capitalism support a regime that regularly attacks small business owners and is so rife with corruption that payoffs and kickbacks are the price of doing business?
Apparently, these traitors only pay lip service to United States Constitution, but jump at the chance to support Putin, who suppresses free speech and is suspected of conducting unfair elections. The real goal of these two monsters is creating a worldwide Christian theocracy. If it suits their purpose to wrap themselves in the American flag, they’ll do it while whistling “God Bless America.” If it is to their advantage to wrap themselves in the Russian flag and pal around with a former KGB operative who reinvented himself as an authoritarian dictator — so be it. These are not patriots, but seditious men with no loyalty to America who spit on our most cherished values.
In formally entering the international arena, these hatemongers have a lot of competition. Most notably is the Rockford, IL-based World Congress of Families. This is the radical organization that is responsible for much of the global crackdown on LGBT people. The LGBT community needs to keep meticulous records on the overseas activities of these Americans. There would be nothing more delightful than to see them tried before an international court, sentenced, and locked in a cage for the rest of their natural lives.
