Life on GLAAD´s Blacklist
American Thinker, by Robert Oscar Lopez

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 12/27/2013 7:33:43 AM

Readers will have to forgive me for sounding angry, but the recent news involving GLAAD has enraged me. (snip) In case you don´t know the full extent of GLAAD´s fascism, let me tell you what GLAAD did to me. I won´t hyperlink this, but if you go to GLAAD´s website and seek out their "commentator accountability project," you will find my name. This is GLAAD´s blacklist. Within hours of GLAAD´s publication of my addition to the list, which amounts to an excommunication from polite society, an e-mail was sent to the president of my university, along with dozens of other high

FOX has been an extreme disappointment on this issue. After reading that article it´s becoming clear why FOX has taken a stance against Phil Robertson --not against just his comments, but against him personally.

Follow the money.

Christian America is going to have to stand up against Facism, Communism. We´re way late to the party already. We´ve been brow-beaten and harrangued and PCed into shutting up and taking every vile accusation thrown at us, and it´s not just the "gay" issue that the Left has thrown at us. War on women. Muslims aren´t terrorists and we should love them. The list of issues we´ve kow-towed on is endless, and we´ve got no back-up from the Elected "R"s. They kow-tow and roll over for the Communist Left, and have basically told the people who elect them to sit down and shut up. Don´t make ourselves look bad. Don´t make ourselves look intolerant, when dealing with the most intolerant people known to man.

Forgive the second post, but I´d love to add to #3´s comments.

Christians are way late to the party, I agree. But consider that perhaps it´s because they are Christians--turning the other cheek when attacked. Christians are going to have to stand up, as you say, because sometimes turning the other cheek just gets you slapped on the other side of your face.

I remember a book about Jesse Jackson called Shakedown, but this is far worse. Jackson only wanted money. GLAAD and Southern Poverty Law Center and groups like that are far worse. Pure fascist enforcers.
And yet I don´t see enough conservative think tanks standing up to these tactics. David Horowitz does, but too many others just acquiescence to the black lists.

The real irony is that the t.v. show, "Modern Family", paints a very human and lovable version of a gay couple, and GLAAD, with its total intolerance, has just about negated all those gains.

We can always try launching a conservative form of GLAAD to wipe out the msm.

One example AMAC is now stiff conservative competition for AARP (which I was dumb enough to sign up to for a brief time after turning 50).

There are hundreds or organizations out there like GLAAD, all with dirty secrets to hide and the need to push their agenda a little too hard in order to try to gain legitimacy. Groups such as Scientology, the NAACP, the various flavors of Enviro-whacko such as Greenpeace and most labor unions. They can´t flourish honestly in mainstream society so they get in people´s faces and shout. Those who go along with them do so out of cowardice. Lopez earned a lot of points for calling them on their hypocrisy.

#3. I too have been deeply disappointed in Fox´s coverage of this story. William Lonjenesse (sp) whose work I have previously admired (he covered Fast and Furious and should have won a Pulitzer for it) recently reported the story and simply announced that Robertson had made offensive remarks about gays. Oh really? Who made that determination? Was the report a news story or an opinion piece? Very disappointing in Fox´s journalism standards.

#4, the advice to turn the other cheek was not meant to encourage passivity in the face of assault, though it is often interpreted that way. It is an instruction to turn the attacker´s aggression against them, which can put them in a foolish or dishonorable position. Rather than turning the other cheek, what most people have done when confronted by the fascist PC crowd is to abandon the ring entirely.

Robert, as one anti fascist to another fellow anti fascist, thank you for this declaration of truth about finding yourself on a brutal, controlled GLAAD black list. For some years, we have been studying Hollywood´s totally fascist, controlling anti capitalist, anti conservative, anti libertarian black list. Several great books, RIGHTEOUS
INDIGNATION, PRIMETIME PROPAGANDA, among several other great ones, prove that blacklisting is a widely held business practice in Hollywood´s Communist Party infiltrated culture; it´s Rule of Silence.
We need more information on GLAAD fascism. Perhaps
you have a website to follow, and would you consider authoring a book on this blacklisting, as Andrew Breitbart and Ben Shapiro, both have successfully done,
and as mentioned above ?
America needs the truth about fascists like GLAAD.

Be real. No entity in the MSM (television) is going to do a thorough, orthodox analysis on this. Look how they put the emphasis on what Phil said, instead of the fact that it is what the Bible said. Stir in some talk about the First Amendment and you´ve generated enough smoke to keep most people comfortable and confused at the same time!

A National Review editor scolds Steyn for being "puerile,"...

Calling Steyn "puerile" is among the dumbest things I´ve ever heard.

... while people on Fox News say that Phil Robertson should have been suspended.

I didn´t see that but if it was Juan who said it, it can be ignored. But if one of us said it, they should be called on it.

Yet a bunch of people on the right are still terrified of GLAAD, or else actually believe that it´s defamation to say negative things or think negative thoughts about homosexuality.

This fear by the Right must stop. Cowardice is unattractive in anyone but the GOP, supposedly standing up for our rights, is falling down on the job. They are allowing 2% of the population to dictate to the other 98%, most of whom agree that homosexuality is a sin.

OPEN LETTER TO THE RIGHT: Get on board and stopping bowing and scraping. People who bow the knee to the gay lobby will find themselves on their faces when voters kick them in their respective butts.

There was an episode of South Park a few years ago involving the gay teacher character and references to actual homosexual acts. The kids inform the Chef and the Chef initially scolds them about being intolerant, but then the kids tell Chef that the teacher shoved the classroom´s pet rodent up his anus - the Chef goes ballistic and was no longer tolerant of the gay teacher.

For years, decades, polite society has been dancing around the reality of homosexuality. It´s not two nice gay men on Modern Family with their adopted baby holding hands.

This is worse than trying to defect from the KGB with information you have.
These creepy, a minority I might add, ´crotch worshipers´ are terrorist that at times make al-Quada seem mild mannered.
Conservative Christians better realize the depth of this kind of gay Fascism and stand and fight back. Phil Robertson is right and Oscar Lopez has all the information.

For those lamenting about Fox, Fox is not remotely the same Conservative station it was 5 years ago. They have been veering towards the so called "center" for quite awhile now. I guess this includes their positions on the hot button social issues of the day.

Beck is out and Rove is in. Robertson is too much like the backwoods Palin to get any support. He will get brief mention on the Fox News Sunday panel however. They will sanctimoniously say that, although they "never" watch the show, he has his rights of free speech. Next subject.

To #3, #8 and others: When I read about the GLAAD vicious attacks on Phil Robertson, I went to their website. The first page opened was what GLAAD calls their ´Commentator Accountabiity Project´ page, the GLAAD version of the Gestapo ´turn in your friends, parents, siblings and teachers for saying anything not NAZI-approved´.

My first act was to turn myself into the Commentator Accountability Project, explaining that their arrogant, vicious BS was the reason that QUEER is now my preferrred description of those I formerly called ´gay´.

I have been in receipt of nonsensical emails from a RICH FERRARO (apparently the ´VP of Communications for GLAAD´) who calls himself a Christian and said he would pray for me.

My response was that anyone who was associated with a so-called ´accountability project´ was no Christian.

Lopez´ article just reinforced my belief that GLAAD is really an acronym for G´s & L´s Always Against Decency.

One viewing of a You Tube clip of a gay pride parade somewhere, with the guys gyrating down the boulevard in their G strings and little else, with the Home Depot stands for kids to make bird cages all along the route, turned my stomach permanently sour!

A pox upon those fairys and all the business enterprises who tout alliance with such behavior -- Phil Robertson called it correctly.

#19...I agree. Gosh how many times have I stated that people need to stop whining and crying, get off their lazy behind, get out from behind their computer and hit the streets, so to speak.

However, the evidence of 2% controlling America is proof I am right, they are lazy yellow bellied chicken feathered cowards (giving exception to handicaps and shut ins). If I were wrong, Congress, GLAAD and other Liberal "obama hindlicking" communist would not be getting away with their actions.

"It scares the crap out of them that I´m a professor and fluent enough in the way research works to know that the ´consensus´ on same-sex parenting is a fraud."

I´m not sure why that would scare them -- many global warming skeptics knew all along that the ´consensus´ on warming has been a big fraud, and see what good that´s done.

Even just observing that it´s a fraud is enough to get eye rolls from folk who trust the mainstream news, who start mumbling about knuckle-dragging mouth-breathers who watch Faux News. Unless the mainstream media are willing to back you up, it doesn´t matter how much proof you have of the fraud on the Left.

Create a mirror campaign that deals similarly with those who choose to act as proxy to GLAAD due to cowardice or ideology. I believe there is a majority which is opposed to GLAAD trying to make their non-supporters into thought criminals a la Orwell´s 1984. They are driving me to support the re-criminalization of sodomy.

GLAAD and others like them are reprehensible. But they do NOT represent all gays either. They are a leftist cabal pushing their communist agenda. And #21, that description is no more indicative of gays than calling white men rapists and serial killers. You cannot generalize an entire group on the acts of a few. There are many good family-oriented gays. There are also many so-called Christians and straight family-men who engage in sick perverted acts, adultery, sodomy and other sins. Let´s not even get into the priests...who were preying on kids even when my dad was an alter boy in the 30´s. In other words...leets leave the negative generalizations to the lefties who don´t see individuals...we are better than that.

This is downright horrifying. I too did not know the background of Mr. Lopez and it makes it all the more frightening. Kudos to him for having the courage to stand up against them, in spite of the losses he has suffered. How did this tiny segment of society gain so much power?? The only difference between these haters in GLAAD and the Klu Klux Klan is the fact they don´t wear white robes and they hate all heterosexuals. You can bet your life if this terrorist group behaved this way against blacks the hacks Jackson and Sharpton would be screaming and wailing at the top of their lungs. It´s time that those being abused by this group stand up to them and not allow this outrageous, lawless, fascist behavior to continue.

Yo...yo... For many years Virginia Medical Examiner Dr. James C. Beyer wrote various medical articles about how to "identify" homosexual motivations in murder investigations. The usual identifier would be the not just the manner of death ( say stabbing) but the ferocity of the attack....30-40-50 stab wounds would raise the issue of whether the killer was a homosexual. Dr. Beyer also felt that the Nazis involved with the "Final Solution" were most probably homosexuals as deduced from the truly vicious nature of many of the killings carried out by the mobile killing units in the East. So you folks are "shocked" by exactly what? That GLAAD has some sort of little vicious "black list"? SMALL Potatoes. Do some reading.

You know what is curious?

The entertainment industry has always been crazy over the "blacklisting" and communist investigations in the entertainment industries.

Now they are all on board.

So see, if you believe in overthrowing the government and embrace communism, you should be left alone, and actually, put up on a pedestal for having "courage".

Finding male gay anal sex repulsive and sinful, well, you need to be blacklisted.

I only became aware of Robert Oscar Lopez through his last two articles. I work with many gays. I always have. For the very first time in reading Lopez´s articles did I finally read the truth of the gay community, their lifestyle and their agenda. It is refreshing to hear one man reveal the truth as only someone on the inside could know it. I pray America backs his truth and stands against the fascist GLAAD gay left agenda. It is not just about changing societal norms but about about destroying America. Christian values or not...Americans had better stand up against the villainous left. Our entire future, our children´s future and America´s future depends upon it. American´s need to understand being politically correct is being muzzled and giving up their right to free speech.

Why do you believe Obama hides his gay history? Because it is not palatable and Americans understand that in their gut....whether they have the gumption to express it or not.

I am stunned that GLAAD and Senator Joe McCarthy of the House of Un-American Activities not only hold similar beliefs of intolerance, elimination of freedom of speech, association and assembly but employ identical tactics of blacklisting.

So now, gays and facists goose-step together in their views and approach to those who disagree.

Every decent American whether straight, gay, bi, and transgender should be outraged by the tactics of not only GLAAD but also JJJr. and ALL other entities that are beginning to destroy careers, reputations and livelihood.

And the entire entertainment industry should be in total outrage as 1,000s of careers were destroyed in 1950s never to recover.

Yet the HYPOCRISY is deafening.

GLAAD is not representative of ordinary gay people. It is an elitist and smug organization which occasionally issues statements about TV shows to keep its image alive. Apart from that, it holds a ceremony once a year where it gives awards to straight female celebrities who once claimed to "kiss a girl".

The driving force is the classic dirty little secret of progressivism, greed and envy, and these deadly sins are amply on display in Baghdad-by-the-Bay these days.(snip)Yesterday, hundreds of SEIU members rallied in front of Twitter HQ to denounce the greed of the company that provides jobs and plenty of other tax revenue to assorted governments that employ SEIU members.

Last week we witnessed repeated efforts by Democrats to polarize the country along racial lines. Eric Holder, speaking at Al Sharpton´s conference, implied that he and the President are being treated harshly because they are black. (snip) The Republican base that Steve Israel says is animated by racism, nominated me -- an American of African descent and a great grandson of slaves -- for Lt. Governor of Virginia. They embraced me warmly, treated me respectfully and supported me enthusiastically. The liberal media on the other hand set out to destroy me. My white Democrat opponent was even caught on camera

Harry Reid’s jihad against the Koch Brothers has already yielded a hilarious video compilation of his 134 mentions of their name. But now with new information, his Koch addiction can become a potent tool in the hands of Republicans. Call it karma, if you like, but the former boxer now leading the Senate majority has left himself wide open. It turns out that Koch Industries employees and PACs have donated to quite a large number of Congressional Democrats.(snip) The ads practically write themselves: Mary Landrieu’s Majority Leader says the Koch Brothers are un-American.

The internal contradictions of the progressive alliance that dominates San Francisco have erupted into violence, and there is every sign it will continue. Conservatives have an opportunity if we are clever. (snip)I had not set foot on Hayes Street for at least a couple of decades when I went there last week.

Alas, another reporter asked me the same question I have been repeatedly asked for the past five years. “As an African-American, why are you a member of the Tea Party?” It dawned on me to ask the reporter, “If you are a thinking patriotic American, why are you not a member of the Tea Party?” It is stunning that reporters cannot see the absurdity and racism against white voters in their assumption that Tea Party membership (pushback against Obama's agenda) equals racism. For the first time in U.S. history, are Americans required to submit to their president's agenda or suffer the mainstream media and Democratic party branding an R on

Retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens penned a putrid op-ed in the Washington Post claiming he knew how to fix the Second Amendment to end controversy over its true meaning. The first 10 amendments to the Constitution placed limits on the powers of the new federal government. (Snip) As Second Amendment expert and activist Clayton Cramer says, Stevens is pushing a bunch of hornswaggle. I wish that I could say that Justice Stevens was engaged in an accurate although misleading statement. But it is not even that. It is both inaccurate and misleading – and not even in a very clever way.

Two of the biggest and best-connected lobbyists in Washington, DC are divorcing each other, and in the process they are placing on the public record the amazing wealth that can be generated by helping rent-seeking powerful interests shape the laws and regulations that separate Americans into winners and losers as the state confiscates a fifth of our GDP and regulates much of the rest. Matthew Continetti chronicles the divorce of Tony and Heather Podesta in the Free Beacon, and it is arresting reading.

One of the guidelines of liberal propaganda is that if you are going to lie, lie big. Global warming, Obamacare, Romney’s a heartless guy. It might be time to add to the list the famous Anthony Porter exoneration in Chicago in 1999. Not only is Porter likely guilty of the double murder he was initially charged with, an innocent man therefore sits in an east central Illinois prison serving a 37-year sentence. His probable framing was largely orchestrated by a since-discredited “journalism” professor and his students at Northwestern University, a cowed prosecutor’s office in Cook County, and a Chicago media that

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future.

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast
