If you got an e-mail from someone calling himself “Public Advocate of the U.S.” you might be tempted to think you were hearing from a government official.
Not a chance. You’d be hearing from a group in Falls Church, VA., the late Reverend Jerry Falwell’s old turf. According to their own website, the group is devoted to opposing same-sex marriage, prohibiting women from choosing to have an abortion, fighting against “Gay Rights” (they put the phrase in quotations marks), and a whole bunch of other early-Neanderthal ambitions. Oh, but they’re for something, too. Tax cuts.
The kind of anti-homosexual hatred the Falls Church creeps are stirring up is the kind that leads to lynchings, street assaults, bullying and harassment of kids in school and other violence.
I didn’t go looking for these goons. They found me. Here’s how it happened:
I put one of my e-mail addresses on the mailing list of a “self defense” training school some while ago. I wanted to do – and did do – a blog piece about the school because it was giving away just what the average Joe needs to blow away the neighborhood and disembowel his neighbors: free AK47s and bayonet sets.
Evidently Dr. Ignatius Piazza, the chiropractor-turned-gun-guru who runs the school traded my e-mail address to the so-called “Public Advocate.” Hey, it makes sense. If I’m really interested in owning a free AK-47 and a bayonet set, it stands to reason I’m the kind of red-blooded patriot who’s also open to bayoneting pregnant women as they try to enter abortion clinics, blowing away doctor who provide abortion services, or reducing the National Endowment of the Arts to rubble.
The Falls Church creeps wrote to me asking me to contribute money to fight The Student Non-Discrimination act, aimed at the reduction and bullying of gay and lesbian kids in classrooms around the United States. To get me fired all up with outrage, they keep calling the act “The Homosexual Classrooms Act.”
The purpose of the act, they said in a truth-twisting and sometimes outrightly lying letter, is to
Indoctrinate an entire generation of American children with pro-homosexual propaganda and eliminate traditional values from American society. Their ultimate dream is to create a new America based on sexual promiscuity in which the values you and I cherish are long forgotten. I hate to admit it, but if they pass the deceptively named “Student Non-Discrimination Act,” that’s exactly what they’ll do.
The letter from the “Public Advocate of the U.S.” also lied to me that the Student Non-Discrimination Act would:
Exempt homosexual students from punishment for propositioning, harassing, or even sexually assaulting their classmates, as part of their specially-protected right to “freedom of self-expression;”
Nowhere does the act say any of this. You can read the bill yourself, S555, straight from the U.S. Government Printing Office (a real government agency) here. Warning: the text is so boring you may have to prop your eyelids open with toothpicks.
What the so-called “Public Advocate of the U.S.” really wants is your money. They’re asking for “contributions” of $30 to $200 so they can keep making a living by pumping out hate-filled, lie-laden trash.
