Email of the Day

Jim Burroway

April 4th, 2012

Everybody's after me.

It wasn’t that long ago that the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) launched an online petition to have Public Advocate banned from the internet — banned from sending any emails at all. But now the Homosexual Lobby has upped the ante through their allies at the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). According to the SPLC, Public Advocate is a hate group. They claim that our defense of true marriage and traditional morals is an act of hate and offensive to homosexuals. They have placed Public Advocate on its Watch List and announced to every radical homosexual and sympathizer that I have to be stopped at all cost.

With our looming victory in Tennessee and the growing fights for real marriage in Maryland, Washington and California — we have become Enemy #1. And now even silencing us is not safe enough for them. With the SPLC leading the charge, they want to destroy Public Advocate once and for all.

…With the SPLC’s declaration of war, the entire radical Liberal Lobby is taking aim at me. Big Media has taken SPLC’s side — repeating the same unfounded accusations and outright lies — while leaders in the Democrat Party have launched public smear campaigns against me personally. They want to destroy my credibility and my mission.

And so I have a personal request of you today Jim.

You get only one guess as to what that request is.

How do you ban someone from sending emails? I’m curious to know what action by HRC was the basis for this latest example of delusion (or lying) from Eugene. Any clues?

He preys on one thing: ignorance.
Ignorance and fear.
OK, two things.

Monty Python aside, he counts on his audience being gullbiel enough not to do their own research. The same Fox news does it. “If we appear professional and credible, then people will think we *are* profressional and credible. So they won’t look elsewhere for accuracy.”

Would it be rude to suggest he update his eyewear?

“Enemy #1…??”

I’m sorry, but if it wasn’t for this website I’d of never heard of this guy.
I suspect most other people besides whatever spectacularly gullible idiots send him money wouldn’t have either, unless they check the SPLC watch list, which I think he’s on.

That doesn’t make him “Enemy #1” and the fact that he says it does, or thinks it does…that just makes him pathetic.

“They claim that our defense of true marriage and traditional morals is an act of hate and offensive to homosexuals.”

No. When you fabricate lies to demonize a group of people, that’s when you end up on the SPLC list. No one hunted you down for staring into a warehouse window… no one broke into your house… no one threatened your wife and children… and on and on.

And, no, it is impossible to prevent someone from sending out emails. You still have freedom of speech (unfortunately). So you can still spew your insane homophobic nonsense. The only difference is, the rest of the world will know you’re a bigot, homophobe and a liar.

I wonder what his children think of his con artist activities.

One guess? Hmmmmmm.

Could it be . . . money? Lots and lotsa ducats and dollars and dosh? Even on a small scale, this guy is a Mammonite. With a smattering of some other nasty entity. Now let’s see . . . he lies. A lot.

Hmmm.

And who is the “father of lies?” Hmmmmmmm.

Could it be . . . Satan?

Well, if he is ever actually prosecuted for his con artist bullshit, goes to jail or ends up on probation (or later, parole) he could theoretically (as his computer appears to be his main means of doing this) be barred from using the internet…but that’s not being “banned from sending emails by the homosexuals.”
No, that’s called “Suffering the consequences of your actions.”

His actions might not technically be illegal, but they’re obviously immoral and if this guy actually IS a Christian I don’t understand how he can’t see that. Bearing false witness is a violation of the ten commandments, and backbiting, subtlety, whispering against others etc. are discouraged in the Bible.

He’s a deciever like all the rest of the ones that do this crap, pure and simple.

“…have announced to every radical homosexual and sympathizer that I have to be stopped at all costs.”

This would be so hilarious, except for the fact that it works awfully well on the ignorant, fearful and not too bright.
We live in an age where EVERYDAY there is some seriously horrific act of violence. Either from individuals, like the mass murder up at a Christian school in Oakland yesterday by an expelled student, and other mass killings prompted by domestic violence or through organized criminals like gang members.

NONE of which has been committed by gay people.
In every aspect of gaining civil and Constitutional equality, I don’t have to tell you all that everything has been done essentially legally, and through all rightful avenues of due process of LAW.
And in no way, have any of our dissenters ACTUALLY been denied any of their rights or been restricted in ways reasonably shouldered by EVERYONE.

His paranoia is virulent, and might pose a real risk. He needs to see a psychiatrist. He’s so afraid of gay people, he’s seeing demonic gays, and conspiracies of gays everywhere or hearing voices that didn’t say what he thinks they did.
What a sick man.

Let’s be honest. He’s targetting an age demographic who usually don’t understand computers at all.

Once a month, the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors invites public comment. I spoke last night. The new all Republican BoS that took office in January has been opening each meeting with a sectarian Christian prayer. Two members of the Norther Virginia Atheists spoke, and the second, Lydia spoke about the SPLC designation. When she mentioned Supervisor Delgaudio’s name, he raised his hand, and when she mentioned his hate group status, he mouthed “oh my” and squirmed through the rest of her talk.

At the break, I walked up to Supervisor Delgaudio and informed him that he looked nervous, and that his behavior was out of character. I asked if he was ok. He responded “I’m having fun. I always have fun.”

He’s having fun? But he’s in danger of being banned from the internet and denied the ability to send emails. That means no more fund raising.

I guess he’s happy with the rate of donations and how easily people fall for the “HRC can have people banned from the internt” line.

I’m not exactly a genius myself…and I can’t imagine someone being so blasted ignorant that they’d fall for a line of BS like that. If someone knows how to access the crap this guy’s spewing (by checking their email) they should be smart enough to know he’s lying.

In this day and age, you have to WANT to be ignorant, I think that’s why we have so much know-nothingism in this country. If you don’t know anything (or act like you don’t) you can act how ever you want or believe whatever you want.

The longer they just keep trying to ignore reality the worse its going to hurt when reality WON’T be denied anymore. What goes around, comes around.

So, is he, or is he not, now listed as a hate group?

Snowman

April 6th, 2012

His organization is listed by the SPLC.

I’m not sure if he’s the only “staff” member or not. The Wikipedia article said his organization’s main activity in “working for conservative causes” appears to be paying him large sums of money.

Once a racist always a racist. Let’s invite the KKK on the Board of Supervisors and bring back John Crow’s laws.
Down with the Constitution and equality for all. That is what he preaches.
It makes me sick!

What Are Little Boys Made Of?

In this original BTB Investigation, we unveil the tragic story of Kirk Murphy, a four-year-old boy who was treated for “cross-gender disturbance” in 1970 by a young grad student by the name of George Rekers. This story is a stark reminder that there are severe and damaging consequences when therapists try to ensure that boys will be boys.

Slouching Towards Kampala: Uganda’s Deadly Embrace of Hate

When we first reported on three American anti-gay activists traveling to Kampala for a three-day conference, we had no idea that it would be the first report of a long string of events leading to a proposal to institute the death penalty for LGBT people. But that is exactly what happened. In this report, we review our collection of more than 500 posts to tell the story of one nation’s embrace of hatred toward gay people. This report will be updated continuously as events continue to unfold. Check here for the latest updates.

Paul Cameron’s World

In 2005, the Southern Poverty Law Center wrote that “[Paul] Cameron’s ‘science’ echoes Nazi Germany.” What the SPLC didn”t know was Cameron doesn’t just “echo” Nazi Germany. He quoted extensively from one of the Final Solution’s architects. This puts his fascination with quarantines, mandatory tattoos, and extermination being a “plausible idea” in a whole new and deeply disturbing light.

From the Inside: Focus on the Family’s “Love Won Out”

On February 10, I attended an all-day “Love Won Out” ex-gay conference in Phoenix, put on by Focus on the Family and Exodus International.

Testing The Premise: Are Gays A Threat To Our Children?

Anti-gay activists often charge that gay men and women pose a threat to children. In this report, we explore the supposed connection between homosexuality and child sexual abuse, the conclusions reached by the most knowledgeable professionals in the field, and how anti-gay activists continue to ignore their findings. This has tremendous consequences, not just for gay men and women, but more importantly for the safety of all our children.

Straight From The Source: What the “Dutch Study” Really Says About Gay Couples

Anti-gay activists often cite the “Dutch Study” to claim that gay unions last only about 1½ years and that the these men have an average of eight additional partners per year outside of their steady relationship. In this report, we will take you step by step into the study to see whether the claims are true.

The FRC’s Briefs Are Showing
