“Protecting & Defending” the truly vulnerable (No, not him. HIM!)

This is 14-year-old Jamey Rodemeyer:

He killed himself earlier this month after being relentlessly bullied and hounded by schoolmates for being gay.

But never mind Jamey and the many other LGBT teens worldwide who suffer ceaseless harassment and sometimes kill themselves. You know who really needs a new organization to protect them from discrimination? The adults who proclaim that our LGBT friends and neighbors are second-class citizens and freaks who are destroying society and then suffer professional and personal blowback when people discover their very public pronouncements on the topic.

Luckily, Maggie Gallagher resigned her position at NOM to create just such an organization.

Gallagher’s initial cause célèbre is consultant Frank Turek, author of several antigay screeds, including Correct, Not Politically Correct: How Same-Sex Marriage Hurts Everyone. Turek, who used to deliver—I shit you not!—diversity consulting services, was “outed” as an antigay bigot when someone at one of his client companies Googled his name and discovered the antigay books he’d authored. His contract was not renewed.

Free market at work? No. As usual, when a wingnut gets five in the snot-locker from the “Invisible Hand,” it’s intolerance, oppression and an abridgement of free speech that must be rectified in the courts. Via donations.

It’s not like Lady Gaga is going to perform a tribute for Frank Turek’s dead diversity consulting career, now is she? So he gets Ms. Gallagher, who is clearly the next best thing.

Still, as a straight married lady, I rather object to the new organization’s title: Marriage Anti-Defamation Alliance. Above all, an organization’s title must convey its purpose (just as “Rumproast” immediately sets expectations for the content of this blog). Maybe something like “Kweer Klux Klan” would be better.

*shudder*

I hope BofA and Cisco stand firm and don’t take him back if he sues them (which it looks like he’s going to do) but I don’t have much hope of it.

a diversity consultant who hates gays?  He’s lucky he’s not being sued for malpractice.

Sounds like the NOMbie gig no longer brings in the $$ if Grifterella has shifted to this sad crap.

I hope BofA and Cisco stand firm and don’t take him back if he sues them (which it looks like he’s going to do) but I don’t have much hope of it.

Actually, the companies are more likely to face lawsuits from their employees if they let this clown in the door, not to mention bad press and possible violations of local/state law.

The BEST he can hope for is a check for whatever he would have been paid to speak at the appearance that was cancelled. (Unless the contract contains language that gives the client the right to cancel for whatever reason, in which case [Sad Trombone].)

Personally, I’m hoping he pushes it so he and mHaggie discover just how very unpleasant corporate counsel can be.

My guess is Turek is angling for the lucrative Christian Martyr speaking circuit, where he’ll join such distinguished company as Carrie Prejean. Hey, it’s a living!

But seriously, WTF did the antigay “diversity consultant” expect? If I ever decide to put myself forward as a candidate for Ladies Non-Profane Internet Speech and Online Deportment Society Steering Committee Member, I hope I’d have enough class not to whine about it if they decided my propensity to say “FUCK! FUCK! FUCK!” on the internet a lot disqualifies me.

You don’t wanna join that group, Betty. Buncha shitstained fuckheaded twatwaffles. (BRAP!)

Great piece!
Love the “Kweer Klux Klan.”

Thank goodness someone is fighting for Turek’s right to be a bigot. After all, he’s a member of the most discriminated against group in the history of America: a straight white Christian male.

My heart bleeds, truly it does.

Thanks, HTP.  That makes me feel better!

You know what?  Fuck him (and Maggie G) with a rusty pitchfork.  Cry me a fucking river.  Sorry.  No snark on this—just anger.

Frank (sorry, Doctor Frank) has already started his martyrdom tour, and is being repped by the likes of Townhall’s Dr. Professor Mike Adams.  A bit more here from the horse’s mouth.
