Hate Groups To Protest In Front OF HRC Headquarters

Several anti-gay organizations plan to hold a rally at the main office of the Human Rights Campaign in Washington, D.C. this Tuesday at 11am. According to a press release, the wingnuts intend to "express their objections" to pride month as well as sound off on their claim that the HRC committed a crime by publishing a NOM tax document. Taking part in this hateful rally will be the Americans for Truth About Homosexuality, the American Family Association of Pennsylvania, Apologetics Group, the Liberty Counsel Action and Mission America.

HrcFrom the press release:

Peter LaBarbera, President of the Americans for Truth About Homosexuality, explained: "On Tuesday morning we will gather in front of the world's most powerful homosexual lobby group, Human Rights Campaign, in Washington, D.C., during so-called 'Gay Pride Month' (June) to proclaim the politically incorrect truth: that proud homosexuality is against God; against Nature; very unhealthy; and a serious threat to children and religious freedom. Thankfully, it is also changeable — as proved by the existence of countless thousands of happy former 'gay' men and ex-lesbians.

"Our bottom line is that homosexuality is nothing to be proud of. In fact, practicing homosexual behavior, a destructive sin, is something to be ashamed of. Out-and-proud homosexualism — far from being a 'human right' — is actually a human wrong."

"We will also testify to the lies, dirty tricks, anti-democratic bullying, hate-mongering and intimidation that have fueled the advance of so-called 'gay rights' in America. Recently such tactics surfaced again when HRC obtained and published leaked IRS filings from a pro-natural-marriage group, which it used to attack the donors to Mitt Romney's campaign in an election year," Mr. LaBarbera said.

"It's not surprising that HRC has inroads into the most corrupt presidential administration in history," said Matt Barber of the Liberty Counsel. "The HRC is following the tactics of Saul Alinsky as detailed in his manifesto 'Rules for Radicals.' President Obama and his IRS are evidently aiding and abetting this radical organization. Because sexual anarchist groups like the HRC cannot win the debate on the merits, they must resort to underhanded and, as it now appears, outright illegal tactics in order to gain momentum for their extremist agenda," Barber said.

    It’s not necessary to present the hateful statements of the homophobes in excruciating detail. We shouldn’t be affording them free broadcast opportunities.

    These haters should come to Philadelphia next Sunday June 9th, where they could see a great gay pride parade in Center City and party with about 25,000 LGBT folks and their straight friends at a festival at Penn’s Landing. They would see so many people having fun and celebrating gay pride as an antidote to their sad and dreary hate.

    Words I’ve always lived by: “Homosexuality is not a sin. Atheism is not a sin…sin is an imaginary disease invented to sell you an imaginary cure.”

    The fact that they think the HRC is a radical, sexual anarchist group pretty much sums up how absurdly out of touch they are. Rally on!

  6. K in VA says

    It’s noteworthy that there’s not a whole lot of space in front of HRC’s building, so I’m guessing they’re not expecting a large crowd.

  7. Brian1 says

    As far as I can tell, this isn’t exactly the A list of gay-hater organizations, or even the B or C list. the anti-gay stuff is laughable, but really the funniest line of all was calling Obama “the most corrupt administration in American history”. This is guaranteed to be a freak show.

  8. bructer says

    These nuts always come back to the same thing,there desire to keep the word of the bible as the law of the land that is in and of itself unconstitutional. Go back to your Church’s and leave the country alone to progress to a peaceful and hate-less society. Reglion the root of almost every war.

  9. Jim Stone says

    “Unhealthy” is living a lie in a closet. It is not good for the body or the soul…

  10. says

    They’ve spent years doing nothing but social climbing and spending donation money on luxury vacations….It’s no big surprise they won’t be ready for the real battles….

  11. Onnyjay says

    The wingnuts must be getting hard up for cash, and this is their way of drumming dollars out of the conservatards. The more coverage the nets and mainline press give them, the more money they bilk out of the “faithful.” Ignore these people, and their money supply will dry up, simple as that. But will the nets and the press — all owned by right-wing corps — do that?? Just watch the evening snooze and find out.

  12. MateoM says

    I can’t wait to see pictures of the tens of supporters that show up. It’ll be a who’s who of anti-gay nobodies.

  13. jleo71 says

    Time to get out the balloons full of piss. Or water if the former would be an illegal act.

  14. Jols says

    I hope HRC suddenly decides to blast Lady Gaga at full force on speakers in the street all afternoon long.

  15. UFFDA says

    By use of the word “sin” they have lost the power of sensible people. Sin is a ridiculous concept, and besides that it rocks.

    Oh, and MateoM finally said something enjoyable to read.

  16. Houndentenor says

    You know someone is a wingnut when they think HRC is a radical organization. On can hardly imagine an organization less radical (or less effective)than HRC.

  17. Neal says

    HRC is radically? I have never thought about that since HRC rarely helped the ballots in 4 states.They are just cocktail party.

  18. Daniel says

    HRC should serve them soda and cookies. And use it as an educational opportunity. Then people should ask the protesters on camera to condemn the polygamists and slaveowners in the bible. Which the protesters won’t do because otherwise they’d be admitting the bible was written by polygamists and slaveowners.

  19. Michaelandfred says

    The funny part is that they had to send ALL of these people to Washington to fill the crazy void left by Michelle Bachman.

  20. Jerry says

    Why wait until Tuesday- fly down to Sao Paulo, Brazil, and tell 4 million participants in Gay Pride how wrong they are- if you dare!

  21. AdamTh says

    Sounds like a fun week for the fine folks at Right Wing Watch! Looking forward to seeing their vids on YouTube.

  22. DannyEastVillage says

    Peter LaBarbera is closeted and drinks too much (and no wonder); and Matt Barber is closeted and a wuss.

  23. andrew says

    The protest at the HRC Headquarters won’t be as much fun to watch due to the absence of the twisted Phelps Family.

  24. greenfuzz says

    Lets hope that the Phelps clan would join them on tues. Also Linda Harvey has to get back to central Ohio so she can lurk around the gay pride march.

  25. itches says

    Come on. You’ve obviously never looked closely at a line of lesbians signing up for marriage licenses. Pot calling the kettle black on bizarre looking crowds. You people sound so evil. Don’t be alarmed when it all comes back on you.

  26. says

    LaBarbera just has a kid or two of his own that he wants to get rid of. He’s anti-abortion, but he is in favor of the Rick Warren method of ridding yourself of your own unwanted children.

    Enjoy it, pig.

  27. Mike B. says

    As the dig on Obama indicates, the homophobia here is a tool that facists are using to stir up fanatical sentiment on the road to political power. Same way Jews were persecuted, then finally rounded up and killed.

  28. Kyle says

    “The most corrupt presidential administration in history.” That deserves a big ole LOL. That dude has a short memory.

  29. millerbeach says

    So the truth comes home to roost. It’s all about that Black man in the White House. Still eating at you, isn’t it? Still gets stuck in the back of your throat every time you have to say “President Obama”, doesn’t it? How sad you are. HRC stands for Human Rights Campaign. Nothing sexual about that. It got its biggest boost upon the gruesome death of Matthew Shepard, in Wyoming, back in 2001, I believe? Do you remember the details of that wicked event? I doubt it, as all of the AFA must suffer from collective dementia. Do you all ever tire from the constant diet of hate upon which you dine? Do you seriously think you are doing the work of Jesus Christ? By hating? Show me where in the Bible it says it is o.k. to hate and judge God’s children…I only know of it as being a sin to do what you are doing. God knows no difference between sins, a sin is a sin. So go ahead and keep sinning in the name of Jesus. Good luck with that after-life in hell.

    Sorry LaBarbera:. You can blow that ol’ Familiar dog whistle about Saul Alinaky tactics, and try to hang it around OUR necks, but it’s the same crap that FOX has heavily tied to their meme about a ‘Socialist/Communist Obama. And that dog just don’t bite.

    Your hopes to smear HRC with criminal conduct charges AGAINST NOM while not saying ONE DAMN WORD about NOM refusal to obey Court ruling after court ruling by releasing Donor Names when EVERY US COURT has demanded it, is galling…or Hypocritical.

    So whatdoyasay? Want to apologize to us?

    Just remember one thing, Mister LaBarera: It is YOU who is on the Hate Crime Watch List. Not us.

    And you will only hope that WE show YOU the mercy YOU have NOT shown us.

  31. mic says

    I’ve taken a good look at my posts over that past few days. I am not happy with my opinions. I think I have let these group’s own hatred creep into my life a little too much. And that is NOT the person I want to be, for my husband, or our community.

    In the future, should I have something to say on our boards, and with your patience, I will offer it from a rational and sincere p.o.v.

    I’d like to see if I really do have anythingnto offer the conversation.

    I apologize for not adding anything except more vitriol.

    Don’t forget to take pictures of these nutballs! It’s always fun exposing ignorant bigots and a$$hats.
