‘Call Me a FAGGOT, I Will Call You a Nigger’

For years, I’ve written about liberal fringe groups that seek legitimacy by equating their issues to the black civil rights struggle. What I find interesting with the whole Proposition 8-gay marriage clash is that the very gays who want to be like blacks, now find themselves at odds with a black population that not only is insulted by the comparison, but voted overwhelmingly against the marriage initiative.

In a cover story for the Advocate magazine titled “Gay is the New Black,” Michael Joseph Gross wrote,

“These past few years we’ve made so much progress that we’d begun to think everybody saw us as we see ourselves. Suddenly we were faced with the reality that a majority of voters don’t like us, don’t think we’re normal, don’t believe our lives and loves count as much or are worth as much as theirs.”

“… we’d begun to think everybody saw us as we see ourselves.”

Been to a gay pride parade lately?

Yet even some gay leaders are reluctant to directly tie their fight to the African-American legacy. They acknowledge significant differences in the experiences of gays and blacks, ranging from slavery to the relative affluence of white gay men to the choice made by some gays to conceal their sexual orientation, which is not an option for those with darker skin.

“I believe we are very much in a modern-day civil rights struggle,” said Joe Solmonese, president of the Human Rights Campaign, the nation’s largest gay rights organization.

Here’s yet another unfortunate result of the Democrat Party’s ongoing whitewash of history, both politically and academically. Some gay people are totally clueless, thus foolish in making the comparison between the American black versus gay experience.

Gays were not legally enslaved for centuries. Gays were never segregated in education, in the military, or socially overall up until the last 50 years. Again, the comparison is ludicrous.

I would never want gay people to have to walk in my shoes, but until they have, they have no right to demand a share of our legacy. They demean the black American experience and now that some feel empowered to say “Goes to show that Negroes truly are the most underdeveloped race when 70% are homophobic. Kind of funny because that’s also their IQ”, it shows some were never our friends and don’t deserve whatever support they had.

Let me provide a couple of prominent examples of the left using black people for politically-correct posturing.

A few years ago, there was a movie produced by the Farrelly Brothers called “Shallow Hal” which was protested by obesity advocacy groups who, rightly or wrongly, felt discriminated in employment and in public perception. In order to prove their point, they used black people….

The organization asserts that movies like Shallow Hal, American Sweetheart and The Klumps not only reinforce stereotypes and myths about fat people, but underscore the prejudice against fat people in this country.

‘Putting thin performers in fat suits is no different than putting white performers in blackface’, says Maryanne Bodolay, executive administrator of the National Association to Advance Fat Acceptance.

Considering the “thin epidemic” plaguing Hollywood for years, thin actors are placed in fat suits because of a lack of larger actors; not because fat actors are barred from employment opportunities as was the case with blacks decades ago.

There was the now-infamous PeTA exhibit…

Continuing along the Animal Liberation Project, an exhibition recently launched by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), there are pictures of black men and women being branded, bloodied and burned, contrasting with shots of various domesticated animals in similar positions.

One of the most provocative images, however, is that of an African-American’s chained foot opposite the equally shackled limb of a circus elephant.

While animal rights activists today argue that animals were the “first slaves”, one could argue that even then, they were treated more humanely than blacks and the ongoing comparison between blacks and animals is what got the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals in trouble in the first place.

Then again, as we ARE talking about liberals who are the last to admit they’re ever wrong, using blacks is always their prime go-to…

During the whole Proposition 8 debate, a fascinating amount of gay racism was also exposed.

It was like being at a klan rally except the klansmen were wearing Abercrombie polos and Birkenstocks. YOU NIGGER, one man shouted at men. If your people want to call me a FAGGOT, I will call you a nigger. Someone else said same thing to me on the next block near the temple…me and my friend were walking, he is also gay but Korean, and a young WeHo clone said after last night the niggers better not come to West Hollywood if they knew what was BEST for them.

“How to deal with the black community”….

Scapegoating blacks for the passage of Proposition 8 may be convenient, but is fact-challenged.

While blacks make up only around 10% of California’s population and the 2008 turnout high, not all turned out. The 70% that voted against gay marriage can’t be singled out with any sense of fairness, and slurring all black people is the very thing gays complain is done to them.

Other demographics voted against the proposition, so they are all homophobic haters (which is what the activists would prefer to believe). But to use racial epithets against one isn’t exactly the tactic we’ve all been instructed by the left to tolerate.

And using the safety of Internet forums to declare that hate is cowardice at the very least. Staging huge protests in front of the Church of Latter Day Saints is safe. Taking those protests to The Hood and using racial epithets there would take courage.

Unlike the civil rights protests where people risked, in some cases, life and limb to participate, gays are not putting all on the line with theirs. The tactics used thus far shows just how courageous these pro-gay marriage activists have chosen to be and who the real haters are.

    Gays have the same rights as everyone else. A Gay man has the exact same right to marry a woman as I do. He may not want to exercise that right, but he has it. As for “Love”, that’s not a legal requirement anyway.

    I’m just wondering when they’re going to start protesting for equal rights for S&M practitioners.

    If you guys think the gays are being uppity now, just wait until they insist on gay affirmative action (and set-asides), on political districts being drawn that protect gay districts, and so on. It’s all part of their civil rights struggle, you know.

    But what if it’s a gay-black-republican? I’m sure he/she/it would hear all sorts of racial comments.
    Sorry, was too serious in here.
    It’s ridiculous to compare a life-style choice to a race. That’s like comparing Tennis players to Iranians. (It doesn’t make any damn sense). And I still think it’s BS that ANYONE should have more rights than me or my family because of gayness, sex, religion, race, hobbies, criminal record, martial status, etc…If gays think it’s so bad here they should move to the middle east. Then they’d know how good they have it and maybe shut the hell up. Or maybe move to Lesbos…..

    If you dress up in a ballerina costume and prance about half naked in a gay pride parade you’re never going to be treated as an equal, because

    …..wait for it…..

    ….you’re not acting like an equal.

    That was the big mistake. The major difference between the fag agenda and the civil rights movement…The homosexuals already have their rights, the African American community did not have rights. Plain and simple. When they made the comparison to civil rights, that only confirmed my vote against them (which I was doing anyway)

    Comparing skin coloration (any color) with fagot behavior is a outrageous insult, and denotes a full lack of intelligence. Normal people — being Caucasian, African, Asian or whatever — have their families and rise their children, and cannot be compared to a nihilistic lifestyle.

    … a pretty ballsy title indeed, however, it not only GETS your attention, it sums up (as well as) articulates the author’s thought process, theory and conclusion … all wrapped up in exactly what a headline is suppose to do … GET YOUR ATTENTION!!!

    The problem today, is that too many can no longer deal with what’s real (i.e.: Free Republic). This is purely an opinion piece, which BTW carries with it much credence and a whole lot of history.
