Hateful Group Asks Parents To Keep Kids Home on Harvey Milk Day

Milk
This Wednesday is Harvey Milk Day in California; a day which is intended to celebrate this important gay rights activist. One conservative anti-gay organization, SaveCalifornia.com, is using radio ads airing in Sacramento and Los Angeles to urge parents to keep their kids home from school that day. Randy Thomasson, the president of the group explains his reasoning behind the illogical boycott:

According to the Sacramento Bee, the group's president, Randy Thomasson, says: "This is harmful to children...This is not academic, it's brainwashing." Thomasson also explained his feelings on the holiday to CBS13: “Children belong to the parents, not to the state, and to force a sexual agenda and a political agenda upon children, that’s highly inappropriate.”

What is highly inappropriate is the all of the information as well as a video posted on on the group's website which is full of hateful lies and anti-gay propaganda. The alarmist image above is from the group's website.

Watch a CBS13 news segment about the anti-gay campaign, AFTER THE JUMP.

  1. "Parents have a right to drive their own children to suicide, and we don't need you liberal activist gays telling their kids that they're ok, when the parents would much rather pay for a funeral for their son or daughter than some elaborate gay wedding"

    kthanks.

  2. Of course children belong to parents Randy; and parents send children to school for education.

  3. "Children belong to the parents"? Didn't ownership of one human being by another end in the U.S. when slavery was abolished? It's more like the parents have an obligation to care for their children.

  4. They don't want their children to learn history:

    GAY politician murdered by hateful man

    and this:

    it is WRONG TO KILL GAY PEOPLE.

  5. Kiwi: Ultimately parents have to "pay" right Kiwi? But, they cannot keep their children home from school? Remember how Harvey Milk died? Maybe some parents fear violence on that day. Kiwi, sometimes you go beyond comment, you just spew....

  6. (((((rolling my eyes)))) @ Big Peach. You really think that's the parants' motivation? Really? I think you might be an internet troll and as such are ridiculous.

  7. The picture they chose to use of Harvey says it all, "protect your kids from the scary crazed gay man!"

  9. In light of the school shootings in Connecticut it's poossible. Roll your eyes all you want . Don't forget the mascara. Disagreement is always "troll" FU!

  10. Brad: Your hate for the parents matches their hate for your cause. Not everyone will agree. I hope you realize that.

  11. So this group thinks that kids should have a day off for Harvey Milk Day instead of an inschool day for Harvey Milk Day. Guess they didn't give that a lot of thought.

    I agree. For that matter, let kids stay home for Martin Luther King Birthday Junior Day and Ethel Merman Day.

  12. omg! Those poor children certainly need protection from this holiday!!! What is the worst thing that could happen......they might learn something.........

  13. actually, it doesn't. smart people get it, so you don't.

    it's not hatred when you're combatting agressive prejudice and bigotry. you idiot :D

  14. Are these parents afraid their kids will be gay...or that THEY already are?

  15. Not weird at all, they are trying to protect their children against XXI , I guess ????

  16. Concern troll somewhere else, Big Peach.

  17. Big brother Kiwi reporting from Canada. Maybe MateoM can go to each school and teach the kids what a troll is. Kiwi already has the market cornered on hate. He burns..

  18. So Big Peach is actually just Ratbastard/Uffda. The same exact anti-Kiwi rant. You're transparent, Peachy.

    How many effing aliases do you have?!?!?!

    Posted by: MateoM | May 18, 2013 6:23:48 PM


  19. Would you look at that; Big Peach opened it's mouth and all sorts of stupid fell out!

    Hey Peachie, Peachie...come play with us... We'll teach you all about the scary gay agenda....right, all my Brothers and Sisters?

  20. Towleroad, please post the results of their boycott. It is always interesting to see how effective or ineffective these bigots are.

  21. Andrew: What lube would you recommend to these bigots?

  22. And they are the same people who want to impeach the Muslim Socialist Obama! These people are Neanderthals. They will always exist. Their children will learn the truth when they grow up, and many of them will hate their parents for teaching them to hate instead of to love.

  24. Gee, a school day free from the children of bigots! Not a bad way to celebrate Harvey Milk Day.

  25. These irrational and 'upset' supposed 'parents' have CHOICES: 1)They can send their child to a religious school and pay to have the priests molest or rape their children. 2)They can have them join the Boy Scum of America and learn how to discriminate and gay bash. 3) They can have them join the military and be raped by their commanding officer OR they can FOLLOW THE LAW and send their children to PUBLIC school(paid for with taxpayer dollars) and learn about diversity,love and mutual respect for others! :)
