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.

Please don´t tell me, just prove me wrong.

"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".

Labor Fascism in Chattanooga

As the labor movement tells the story, two months ago, the silly, ungrateful Volkswagen factory workers in Tennessee foolishly rejected the generous invitation of the company and the United Auto Workers to welcome the Detroit-killing union with open arms. In an election supervised by the federal National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), the workers in VW´s Chattanooga plant rejected UAW representation by a vote of 712 to 626. Amazingly, the UAW and the automaker both refuse to take the workers´ "no" for an answer. The two sides are acting in unison to overturn the democratically expressed will of the workers.

For more than 160 years, Henry David Thoreau´s essay on Civil Disobedience has inspired Americans to "make known what kind of government would command his respect" so that we could live under that government in good conscience. Ultimately, in a free society, that´s all we have that is truly our own; our conscience. Following its dictates, says Thoreau, is the only rational way to live your life and be true to oneself. It had been years since I read Civil Disobedience and I was surpised by how Cliven Bundy´s words echoed many of the theses in the essay. Legal experts overwhelmingly agree

A Soros-funded nonprofit New Yorker magazine called “one of the most important radical environmental groups in the country” has issued a statement denouncing the Bureau of Land Management‘s (BLM) decision to back away from a showdown with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and hundreds of supporters. A scientist for The Center for Biological Diversity (CBD) blasted BLM saying the federal agency “has a sacred duty to manage our public lands in the public interest…instead it is allowing a freeloading rancher and armed thugs to seize hundreds of thousands of acres of the people’s land as their own fiefdom.” CBD is funded by Earthjustice

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.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups.
