Upping the ante

The Homosexual Lobby would like nothing more than for you to stop reading this email.

Au contraire, M. Delgaudio. By all means, please read on:

You see, this November election there are four crucial referendums related to their agenda in Maine, Maryland, Minnesota and Washington. And if you stop reading, they are all the more likely to pass their agenda in all four states.

Public Advocate has a Battleground Action Initiative in place designed to ensure pro-Family values are upheld in each of these four states. …

The Homosexual Lobby is so afraid of our Battleground Action Initiative they have threatened to destroy Public Advocate in court unless I cease and desist all pro-Family operations. And to see that we do not unhinge their 2012 election schemes, they have set their attack dog, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), after me.

The SPLC just held a press conference and announced they plan to file a “legal” attack against me and Public Advocate any day now. The SPLC made their name and fortune through frivolous lawsuits exclusively against conservative organizations. The timing of this announcement is no accident.

I received this email overnight last night. The SPLC’s announced their lawsuit two weeks ago. Of course, while Delgaudio wants you to read his email, he doesn’t want you to know why he’s being sued. The lawsuit stems from Delgaudio’s stealing, without permission, a gay couple’s engagement photo, defacing it, and using it in two Colorado state legislature campaigns. Meanwhile, DelGaudio, who serves on the Board of Supervisors for Loudon County, Virginia, is being investigated by his fellow supervisors over charges that he illegally used county staff paid by county taxpayers for his anti-gay fundraising activities. Speaking of which…

My staff and I have calculated that Public Advocate will need to raise $136,295 by midnight, October 12th in order to properly launch the Initiative. With the election bearing down on us, the timing is critical. If Public Advocate does not have at least an additional $136,295 on hand by midnight of the 12th, I will not be able to authorize the program. …

Can you make a one-time contribution of $200 to fund the Battleground Action Initiative?

“And if you stop reading, they are all the more likely to pass their agenda in all four states.”

So I stopped reading. Will it work? Please?

This statement by Delgaudio is simply galling: “The SPLC made their name and fortune through frivolous lawsuits exclusively against conservative organizations.”

It is jaw-droppingly offensive because it implies that Delgaudio is saying the KKK and other violent, racially-motivated hate groups are merely “conservative organizations”, and it is either willfully ignorant or intentionally misleading about how the SPLC operates. The SPLC works pro-bo (an anathema to Delgaudio, no doubt) and all damages it receives on behalf of its clients go to the clients or their designee. The SPLC is supported 100% by grants and donations.

I still think Delgaudio is probably the least dangerous anti-gay crusader. His organization does nothing but raise money to line Delgaudio’s pockets. It’s always been obvious he’s nothing but a con man, but now it’s very clear the man has no moral or ethical center. He’s been caught stealing (the photograph that got him sued in the first place) and misappropriating public funds (using county employees to do political campaigning and fundraising). But this aligning himself with the KKK (I don’t know how else one could interpret his criticism of the SPLC) takes things into a very dark territory where I don’t think it’s possible to dismiss him as a harmless flim-flam artist any longer. He’s either a cretin, vastly unqualified for the trust his donors and constituents have placed in him, or he is a monster who wishes to subjugate, expatriate, or exterminate those different from himself. He’s probably the former, In fact, at one time I thought he might simply be using religious homophobia and heterosexism as a convenient wedge to drive between sheeple and their money. This may even still be true. But the depths to which he is willing to sink, and the unconscionable rhetoric he is willing to employ, show he is either one of the worst of bigots or pathologically narcissistic and greedy, and maybe both.

“My staff and I have calculated . . . . ”

In my memory, this is the first reference he has EVER made to “staff.” And he makes it at such a truly odd and inauspicious time. There’s got to be a psychological term for this.

Wow, and not just any piddling little $10 — he means it this time.

Who the hell would be dumb enough to give this jerk $200?

@Soren456 I think he means “My ATTORNEY and I have calculated . . . . ”

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.

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