‘Weekly Standard’ Editor William Kristol Won’t Condemn Paper’s Email Ad Warning of ‘Homosexual Indoctrination’

William Kristol, the editor of the conservative Weekly Standard, has refused to condemn an email advertisement sent out by the paper that was written by Loudon County, Virginia wingnut and anti-gay activist Eugene Delgaudio, warning people that federal anti-bullying legislation is a secret plan to "indoctrinate" children with "homosexual propaganda".

The Human Rights Campaign called on its members to contact Kristol and demand he condemn the ad. The Log Cabin Republicans blasted the paper for sending it out as well.

You may recall Delgaudio's nutty fundraising letters and his work against the Student Non-Discrimination Act in the past. You may recall that Delgaudio fought tooth and nail against an anti-discrimination ordinance in Loudon County, labeling transgender people "it" and "real life Tootsies".

DelgaudioThe email, in part:

Dear Pro-family American, The Radical Homosexuals infiltrating the United States Congress have a plan: 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," (H.R. 998 & S. 555) that's exactly what they'll do. Better named the "Homosexual Classrooms Act," its chief advocate in Congress is Rep. Jared Polis, himself an open homosexual and radical activist. And it's dangerously close to becoming the law of the land….

….You see, the Homosexual Classrooms Act contains a laundry list of anti-family provisions that will: Require schools to teach appalling homosexual acts so "homosexual students" don't feel "singled out" during already explicit sex-ed classes; Spin impressionable students in a whirlwind of sexual confusion and misinformation, even peer pressure to "experiment" with the homosexual "lifestyle;" 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;" Force private and even religious schools to teach a pro-homosexual curriculum and purge any reference to religion if a student claims it creates a "hostile learning environment" for homosexual students. And that's just the beginning of the Homosexual Lobby's radical agenda….

….other countries like Britain are already experimenting with this kind of legislation, such as mandating public schools inject pro-homosexual content into every aspect of education. Word problems in math classes are now to include homosexual characters.  History classes will document the "civil rights" struggle against the "oppressive" pro-family establishment. And it's even started to infiltrate our state governments. In California, lawmakers want to "require schools to portray lesbians, homosexuals, transsexuals … as positive role models to children in all public schools." Sexual deviants being held up as models of virtue?

H.R. 998 already has 150 co-sponsors in the House! And S. 555 already has 34 co-sponsors in the Senate! That’s why I need you to act quickly — right away — to protect our nation’s youth. I have prepared the official “Protect Our Children’s Innocence” Petition to Congress for you to sign.

Please click here to sign it right away so I can rush it to the Capitol with thousands more.

The Weekly Standard, which reportedly apologized to its readers,  tells Politico the ad was not properly vetted but Kristol refuses to condemn it.

    Wow – we’ve infiltrated Congress? I had no idea…seriously, the piece reads like a parody out of the Onion.

    Delguadio seems to be committing fraud with absolutely no consequences to it. Hmmm. Maybe he’ll someday finally step on the wrong guy’s tits and the IRS will give him a little closer examination…


    Maybe William Kristol won’t condemn the ad because he’s WILLIAM KRISTOL! Duh.

    He looks like another closet queen who should hook up with that lawyer who was harassing the student. Forget his name, but he looks like Pee Wee Herman. These 2 would make a fab couple … and for once they would keep their issues away from all of us!

    My partner and I are unlucky enough to
    live in Loudoun County and have been witness to Del-uglios antics for quite a long time. He is total trash and keeps getting himself reelected because no one else in his white trash district votes except for the wingnuts like him. He is a total disgrace of a human being.

    Look at that pic of him……you can just tell that he USED to GET PICKED on in school..NO DOUBT about it…IM SURE he was called ever name in the book, Fag,Fem,Queer…etc etc…and now to this day, he’ll do and say anything Anti-gay to make people /sheeple believe he isn’t GAY!

  7. Henry says

    Careful now. I think we’re in danger of conflating Kristol with the Delgaudio freak we see in the picture. Four words for Delgaudio: HE MUST BE OUTED!! Hell, maybe Kristol needs to be outed too!

    Also, a suggestion here: Kristol refuses to pull the ad because, as hateful and disgusting as it is, it’s constitution-protected free speech. That won’t stop (nor can it) what Del-freak-o calls the “homosexual agenda” from pressing on: treating everybody with humanness, compassion and respect. Plus, we have the right to free speech too.

    Why is it the majority of these wackos are found in the republican party, almost always amd so few in the democratic party?

  9. justinw says

    @Robert in NYC
    … because the GOP is their primary natural environment and espouses policies that enable them. That’s why.

  10. cbhermey says

    What really bothers me is that people read that trash and believe it! Of course that’s what’s at the heart of a lot of evangelical ‘christian’ drivel too. These idiots with glib tongues count on the fact that the ones listening to them are more ignorant of the facts than they are.

    Just a friendly point … The Weekly Standard isn’t a paper, it’s a magazine … A POS magazine, true, but a magazine nonetheless.
