World Net Daily’s magazine: for folks who are astonishingly stupid

Timothy Kincaid

November 4th, 2010

World Net Daily, the website who never goes a day without at least a few Shocking! Discoveries! about the Homosexual! Agenda!, is declaring that America has a gay obsession. Other than the obvious observation that WND is looking at a mirror and thinking its a window, they offer evidence that is even stupider than usual. It’s even stupider than when they told us that homosexuality is caused by soy products.

In fact, so gay obsessed are WND… oh, I mean America… that WND’s “magazine” Whistleblower (only $40 for the year, buy now!!) is dedicating the next issue to AMERICA’S ‘GAY’ OBSESSION.

It’s full of fascinating and fanciful articles such as:

* “The ‘gay’ deathstyle” by J. Matt Barber, in which the attorney explores implications of the shocking news that 20 percent of “gay” males in the U.S. are HIV-positive [actually it’s 11.8%, but Barber isn’t very good at comprehension and can’t read beyond the first paragraph]

* “The zero-sum game of ‘gay rights'” by Peter LaBarbera, an eye-opening survey of casualties in the escalating war between homosexual activism and Americans’ freedom of conscience

* “What’s causing all the ‘gay’ teen suicides?” by Linda Harvey, who shows that while some blame anti-homosexual bigotry, the truth may be quite the opposite

Yes! Buy now and read that what America really needs today is more anti-homosexual bigotry so as to stop ‘gay’ teen suicides. And WND is so impressed with its magazine that they are printing testimonials from, well, themselves.

“This issue of Whistleblower is simply terrific,” said WND Editor Joseph Farah, “and there is no other news organization that will provide this kind of amazing information and analysis on a critical issue most are afraid to touch.

“Everybody who wants the America of the future to remain ‘a shining city on a hill’ needs to read ‘AMERICA’S GAY OBSESSION’ – and share it with others,” he said.

Added Kupelian: “I know everyone these days is preoccupied with politics and the economy, and may feel that ‘gay rights’ is just some ‘marginal social issue.’ I have news for you: This ‘marginal’ issue is increasingly outlawing the Christian faith. That’s not an exaggeration: Owen and Eunice Johns, a lovely Christian couple, want to open their home to foster children – but the government refuses and condemns them because they’re Christians who believe homosexuality is a sin.

“Get it? It’s no longer a matter of whether homosexuals are fit to adopt children or take them in as foster parents,” said Kupelian, “but rather, it is now Christian parents who are considered unacceptable to raise children. This is happening more and more.

“If you want to stop the rapid criminalization of Christianity, you need to read ‘AMERICA’S ‘GAY’ OBSESSION.'”

Just one small problem… the Johns are not exactly a clear example of America’s gay obsession or even of America’s “rapid criminalization of Christianity”. In fact, the Johns aren’t American at all. They live in Derby, about 130 miles north of London. And “the government” which is “condemning” them is not the United States but the United Kingdom.

But it’s okay. World Net Daily knows that their readers never look up anything for themselves. Or, if they do, they probably won’t know that England is not part of America. You see, WND counts on its readers being stupid. Really stupid. Astonishingly stupid.

Tying your other recent post in with this…

Why are you so intolerant of WND?

Zero sum game?

The rain falls on the just and unjust alike.

Poor Farrah, headed into the dark night with a half lit lamp.

WND Editor Joseph Farah… …WND counts on its readers being stupid. Really stupid. Astonishingly stupid.

That explains why there are no footnotes in his book “Taking America Back.”

WND touting America’s Gay Obsession—not too, too much irony there.

Charging almost $40.00 for the uninformed musings of LaBarbera, Barber and Harvey. Almost enough intellectual wattage to make a small bulb glow a bit.

And that whole it-happened-in-England thing.

What’s the thing with the footnotes? Beck was going on about his footnotes, too.

Did yoda say, “Footnotes not make one great!”?

I appreciate WND’s for its humor sometimes.

“The radical ‘gay rights’ agenda, including same-sex marriage and open homosexuality throughout the armed forces, is about to be forced down Americans’ throats.”

Great choice in metaphor.

“Shoving your homosexuality down my throat” is one of the favorite phrases of anti-gays. I hear it so often that I’ve started wondering if there’s something Freudian going on there.

November 5th, 2010 | LINK

Freudian? Oh, definitely. Let’s face it, is simply is NOT NORMAL to be so obsessed with, and focused upon, other people’s homosexuality. A happy, well-adjusted person simply doesn’t care all that much about whether people are gay or not. I can’t help but think that the leaders of all these rabid anti-gay groups have some serious mental issues…

Is this the official publication of GOProud? (Now, that would make some sense…)
