American Taliban Mobilizing Against Gay-stapo
Apparently the far right wants blood and they are doing all of the right things to get them some.
Screeching and fear-mongering over gays in our midst is nothing new for them but those who pay close attention to their antics are recognizing that we have entered a new phase—the mobilization and deployment of armed-to-the-teeth, anti-gay wingnuts who are coming around to a belief that they have a sacred mandate to eliminate the gay.
Guys like Scott Lively have been gay-bashing for a long time and are relatively harmless because their self-interest trumps their desire to scuff their Guccis in the trenches. Up until recently, Lively would rather go to Latvia or Uganda, where he’s a bigger fish, and persuade some petty satraps there to go out and kill their own gays.
He is evidently smart enough to know that the tiny minority of Americans nutty enough to support his agenda will never get much of anything done - at least, legislatively. And Lively’s gay-bashing cottage industry of books, speaking engagements and his hate ministry Abiding Truth Ministries has barely netted enough to keep him in Crown Victorias.
So he’s decided to run for Governor of Massachusetts on a platform that includes “Your President, Barack Obama, Is a Fag.”
Meanwhile, Lively’s book The Pink Swastika has become something of a cult classic in the gay-hate microcosm. The book explains that homosexuals are the true inventors of Nazism and the evil genius behind many Nazi atrocities.
The Pink Swastika fairy tale, [indulge me, please] has taken root and is flourishing in the gay-hate echo chamber. There’s even a whole insider argot that has grown up among these folks—they regale each other with horror stories about homo-fascism and the gay-stapo and Pastor Jeff Allen, a gay-bashing media gadfly has warned his flock that gays:
. . . really do console themselves with fantasies of their own Kristallnacht, in which Christians are euphemistically ‘taken out of the way’ as part of the ‘gay’-stapo’s ‘final solution’ to the ‘Christian problem.
He warns that gay rights activists have an “enemies’ list” and are bent on “marginalizing or eliminating their opposition.”
As a pastor, I am not going to sit around and wait until they come after me and my church in what amounts to an updated version of Rev. Niemöller’s list. It will be too late by then.
Sounds ominous . . .
Another place that Pastor Jeff Allen likes to hang out is TruNews, hosted by Rick Wiles, who says that LGBT activists are literal Nazis and their true objective was not world domination by the Aryan race, but a global homosexual society.
And, here comes the warning:
If it’s not stopped, it will end up in America just like it was in Germany but it won’t be the Jews that will be slaughtered, it will be the Christians.
Christians, he said, will be hunted down and tormented for their beliefs.
They’re going to hunt you down and they’re going to persecute you. That is the spirit that is alive in this country right now and is being embraced by political leaders in both parties, it is the new Nazism.
And, of course there is the doyenne of gay hate, Gina Miller, who spews regularly on Alan Keyes’ soapbox RenewAmerica.com.
The Godless communists (or fascists, if you prefer) are using the homosexual agenda to work toward eradicating Christian opposition to their plans, which are Satan’s plans. If you know your Bible, then you know that Christianity is destined to be outlawed. We are moving steadily toward a time when Christians here in America will be in danger of state-sanctioned murder for their beliefs.
Now, I just know I’d get locked up if I started something like that about Christians . . .
At any rate, when that kind of demonization is afoot, is it any wonder that billboards like this are cropping up in Red States?
Well, I could go on and on with examples, there are plenty of them out there.
But, instead, maybe I can be of some small help to a few of these troubled souls by reassuring them that there is nothing less interesting, to myself and all of the gay people in my community, than their colorless, paranoid little world. We don’t want to think about you, much less round you up and kill you.
Some of us may have some empathy for your having to live such rigid little, hate-filled lives that you have to amuse yourselves with middle-school Nazi fantasies but we’re not going to try to fix that for you. Or change your minds.
We have lives to live and we’re anxious to get on with that. You should try it . . .
