yes virginia, there is an alt-left

So when it comes to Donald Trump, it's just enough anymore to call him terrible or the worst president in American history.

During his show last night, Jimmy Kimmel detailed a litany of his incompetencies since becoming President:

  • Lied about crowd size and weather during his inauguration;
  • Committed nepotism by hiring daughter and son in law;
  • Demanded investigation of voter fraud despite winning.
  • He calls the Prime Minister of Australia and hangs up on him.
  • He won't shake Angela Merkel's hand. 
  • He doesn't know Frederick Douglass isn't alive. 
  • He claims he can't release his tax returns because they're under audit, then says he's not going to release them at all.
  • Signs an executive order on muslims that he claimed wasn't a ban on muslims.
  • Compliments the president of The Phillipines for murdering drug addicts.
  • Hours after a terrorist attack in London, started fight with its Mayor.
  • Criticizes Obama for playing golf; plays golf every weekend.
  • Shares classified information with Russians.
  • Tweeted typo, then claimed it was a secret message.
  • Praised Jim Comey then later called him a coward.
  • Attacks Attorney General who recused himself from the Russian investigation.
  • The Russian investigation.
  • Hires and fires "The Mooch"
  • Bans Transgenders in the military without informing anyone in the military.
  • Played a dangerous game of chicken with North Korea.
All of the above pales in comparison to what has taken place the past several days.

On Saturday, August 12, Charlottesville, Virginia became the site of the "Unite the Right" rally, a protest which was organized by white nationalists to oppose the removal of the Robert Edward Lee Sculpture in Emancipation Park. During clashes with counter-protesters, a man rammed his car into a crowd of counterprotesters, killing one person and injuring 19 others. A police helicopter monitoring the event fell from the sky and crashed, causing two police fatalities.  No foul play is suspected however.

In his initial statement on the rally, President Donald Trump did not denounce white nationalists by name and said there was "hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides". His statement was widely criticized.

On Sunday, August 13, The President made a second statement

To anyone who acted criminally in this weekend's racist violence, you will be held fully accountable. Justice will be delivered. [...] Racism is evil. And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the K.K.K., neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans.

Trump had reportedly been reluctant to issue this statement, believing that his initial statement was adequate, but he was persuaded to speak again by White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly.  Either way, he decided to make a third statement...


And here's where things get muddled and blurred.

On August 15, Trump appeared before the media from his home at Trump Tower in New York City, to give prepared remarks about the state of the US infrastructure and other economic issues; But during the Q&A part of his press conference, Trump defended his August 12 statement and again said that there was "blame on both sides." He also said:"Not all of those people were neo-Nazis, believe me. Not all of those people were white supremacists by any stretch."


Trump also said that there were "very fine people on both sides and criticized what he called the "very, very violent″ alt-left, a group that, he said, ″came charging in without a permit.″

Following his remarks, both social and mainstreammedia went into overdrive, portraying the counterprotesters as innocen; and deny reports of an "alt-left" movement.

Mark Pitcavage, an analyst for the Anti-Defamation League, told The New York Times that the term was invented to "create a false equivalence between the far-right" and "anything vaguely left-seeming that they didn't like."

Oren Segal, director of the Anti-Defamation League's Center on Extremism, told CNN, the term is simply a rebranding -- "a new name for [an] old hatred."

It's a "made-up term" used by people on the right to "suggest there is a similar movement on the left," Segal said.

George Hawley, an assistant professor of political science at the University of Alabama, said the "alt-left" term has been most aggressively pushed by Fox News Channel's Sean Hannity, but it's not a label anyone or group has adopted for themselves.

"There is no such movement as the alt-left. Obviously, there are left-wing extremists but there is no congruence between the far-left and the alt-right."
source: CNN

Other outlets, including Politico, Wired, et al., have called "alt-left," a myth

But is "alt-left" a false equivalence or rebranding or myth?

Well, Yes and no.

To be clear, yes, the term does appear to have originated by people who are socially conservative, and for no other purpose but to smear, "The left."

However, the term has since been used to describe a faux-moral movement within the movement that loves hurling charges of racism, bigotry, xenophobia, homophobia, transphobia, islamophobia and a bunch of other meaningless buzzwords at anyone they disagree with.

I would know.  I'm gay and a progressive/liberal; and when I, and others here on the left use the term "alt-left," it's to describe "The Regressive left," a movement that is based on hierarchy of "oppression" based simply on minority status, that judges people on their racial/cultural/gender identity rather than their individual merits.

h/t Dave Rubin, Why I left The Left.

So yes, Virginia, there is an alt-left.

It's homophobic, bigoted, anti-semitic, pro muslim, misogynist/misandrist, opposed to the constitution, and pro transgender, an ideology or movement that often channels ISIS, mormonism, fundamentalism, and or other oppressive cultures and religions.

There's nothing mythical and false about them.

Let's be clear about this too. Antifa and Black Lives Matter are just as much responsible for the violence in Charlottesville. The only reason these degenerates were there were to bait and fight the degenerates within the alt-right movement. If they had not shown up, there would have been no vehicle ramming attack... and the rest of us would have been laughing our asses off at the sight of polo shirts and khakis - Tiki torch–bearing fascists who marched on the University of Virginia the night before, crying crocodile eyes over a statue they never knew existed until Friday.

the ISIS subculture with the LGBTQ

It's torches and pitchforkers time once again!

The ISIS subculture within the LGBTQ are calling for the Charlie Hebdo/Pulse Orlando style attack to take place at the offices of Instinct Magazine, all because they published an article that was based on an online debate website which asks the question, "Should the T be removed from LGBT?"


http://instinctmagazine.com/post/should-t-be-removed-lgbtq









Now to be clear, I have an my own gripe with the story; the idea or notion that the debate or ongoing concern over transgenderism is taking place, "in the dark corners of the internet."

Short and sweet, no.  This blog and its writer are out and open about it's opposition to transgenders; the only difference is in I don't feel like posting a selfie to back my words or actions; nor have I been asked to appear anywhere to explain my position.

But that's another story for another day.

There is no darkness where there is light.  The darkness is in those threatening Instinct Magazine and the writer of the piece, Bryan Keating, with violence.

Oh, and about the debate website? Survey says:

80% Say Yes


Deal.

wherein a transgender activist makes the case for seperation of lgb from t

Short and sweet: The L, G, B maybe, and T never belonged together.

The fact that it was may well prove to be the gay rights movement greatest blunder, next to perhaps NAMBLA, AIDS, Ex-Gays, gay conservatives, jesus freaks, bisexuals, asexuals, pansexuals, and the rest of the moonbat genders given access and control.

Oh, and capitulation, assimilation, arrogance, ignorance, hypocrisy, double standards, apathy, cowardice, the idea or notion that serving in the military is an LGBT social justice right...

...Of marriage equality being a one size fits all solution to all our problems.

But no one needs to take anything I've said or written as gospel.

Ask transgender activists what they think of the LGBT social movement, and they'll say or write, "we're screwed."

Bryan Jeffrey “Brynn” Tannehill is a former Naval Aviator and transgender activist who has written for the NYT, USA Today, Salon, The Advocate, The Bilerico Project, and The Huffington Post.
 
In a published piece for LGBTQNation, Tannehill forewarns, "if the legal arguments against transgender people succeed in court, then they will almost inevitably succeed against LGB people as well.

In doing so, Tannehill makes the case as to why, now more than ever, the L, G, and B maybe need to be seperated from the T.

https://www.lgbtqnation.com/2017/08/3-ways-lgb-community-screwed-transgender-rights-fail/

Now to be clear, Bryan is scaremongering the LGB.  Despite my saying earlier President Donald Trump is anti-LGB/T, social conservatives remain disappointed by him.  But it's only been 196 days.  He's got plenty of time to inflict damage on the LGB/T, that's if.

The only accurate statement to be made of the President and The White House in general is that this is the more corrupt, incompetent and an egomaniac; and that it would be beyond insane to beg and grovel this man for rights and proclamations.

the eichenwald litany

To be clear, none of what what's being written or published affects me personally or professionally.  The reason I have to begin with a disclaimer is because there is some notion or belief I might jeopardize a lawsuit that was settled recently and that anything I say or write might be used by one party to accuse the other party or violating the terms of their settlement agreement.

Hard to imagine that could be so.  I have a niche blog.  It doesn't get read.  My community hates and despises me.  The establishment orgs and media have all but written my off as a nobody because I'm a gay man with a checkered past and as they would have it, the LGBT movement must be sacrosanct; that is, those who advocate for any form of equality, whether be it gay, lesbian, bisexual, and yes, transgender rights, must be pure and angelic.

Ridiculous? It sure the fuck is.

But this is the LGBT movement in a nutshell; and this is what happens when people allow bullies and sociopaths to control the content.

I can't speak to the other side, but I hear or read things are just as batshit over there, apparently.

And now that I got all this mumbo jumbo out of the way, let's talk about Kurt Eichenwald.  
All week long the gay and straight conservative blogs have been reporting on Eichenwald's Twitter spat with Julian Assange, the founder of Wikileaks, who apparently enjoyed a bit of schadenfreude upon the knowledge Eichenwald might have been fired from Newsweek as a result of a lawsuit and settlement.

They're all aghast at the notion Eichenwald, in addition to being a serial fabricator, once lured and bribed a gay camboi named Justin Berry out of retirement, co administered a child porn website with Berry, and rather than turning himself in to the Feds, he instead coerced this former employer, the New York Times into pressuring the Bush government into grant both him and Justin immunity, so he could then write a story about the so called horrors of child pornography and how he, personally, saved a teenager from gay pedophiles, and appear on Oprah! as a hero.

Oh, and have I mentioned yet how Kurt, in addition to ruining careers of would be journalists, is a destroyer of gay lives too?

Because in case anyone hasn't noticed, there's that whole thing, which ironically is being ignored by the media, again. 

Here are a bunch of factoids that won't get reported anywhere but here:

1. Debbie Nathan called out Kurt Eichenwald way back in 2006.  She wrote a piece for Salon.com and it was pulled because, you guessed it, Eichenwald intimidated and bribed both Salon and Nathan into silence.  No one but for me and a handful of other websites and blogs no one read said or did anything.

2. Ten years ago, there was a court case involving a gay man named Tim Richards, and during his trial, he tried in vain to prove Eichenwald not only lured and bribed Justin Berry [back] into child pornography, it was his idea to start a child porn website with him.  
Again, no one but for a handful of websites and blogs no one read, said or did anything about it. Well, to be clear, we tried but were powerless.  When big media and big government work together to destroy a gay man's life and livelihood...

What does one say to that?

Had anyone, more importantly, had you - apparently the only people who read this blog are coward activists - not been afraid of trigger words, there would be no chaos and controversy to and from Kurt Eichenwald.  There would no faking and feigning.

But we do have faking and feigning, and I'm sad to report that it's coming once gay activists and blogs, the former and latter with lots of readers and followers, and whom for some reason they feel some insane need to profiteer and procure for people and groups, or in this case a political party whose sole purpose is in making everyone afraid and telling your whose to blame for it.

The people on my gay right or no better than the ones who purport to be on the gay left.

If you're a gay blog or activist or both - I don't care what your political affilation is - and you didn't know until today Kurt Eichenwald is a serial fabricator and a destroyer of lives and careers....




You're not outraged by Kurt Eichenwald and his bullshit attempts at passing himself off as a paragon of morality and humanitarianism, you're acquiescing.

trump bans transgender persons from military service and the lgbts are mad for some reason

President Trump announced that after consulting with his generals and military experts, transgender people will not be allowed to serve in the U.S. military "in any capacity."

http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/trump-transgender-people-allowed-serve-us-military-capacity/story?id=48858128

The so called LGBT establishment are all having an apoplectic fit at present, and it begs to question why.  The idea or notion of Trump being pro-LGBT was a trick started by gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender social conservatives to keep the gay and lesbian left distracted, downtrodden, disorganized, and divided.

And fools they be, they bought it.

One blogger says or writes, "This announcement flies in the face of previous statements proclaiming himself to be a “real friend” to the LGBTQ community."

Another blogger notes this news comes less than one month after Trump ignoring Pride Month



Because that's what we all want; A proclamation from the most dysfunctional White House in memory.

To be clear, there was period in which I supported and advocated for transgenders to serve in the military. But that was until someone else pointed out the absurdity of having so called LGBT people wanting to enlist in the military and go abroad and kill and terrorize people all over the world.

Banning Transgenders from serving in the military may just be the one and only smart decision President Trump has ever made since taking office.

moran v. newsweek only proves justice has a funny way of not making sense

Bill Moran is a former writer for Sputnik.com who sued Newsweek and Kurt Eichenwald for libel and intentional infliction of emotional distress, this after Moran wrote a story that was based on a bad source, and Eichenwald retaliating by first witting a story for Newsweek alleging Moran was a Russian conspirator and then using threats and bribery in order to stop Moran from writing additional stories about him.

This may or may not include Bill's blgs on Eichenwald's sordid past involving child pornography. Moran pulled those stories from Medium.com despite them going viral.

On Friday, PasteMagazine.com reported that a settlement was reached between the two parties although no additional details were given.  

Newsweek did though removed two articles by Eichenwald which smeared Moran and Sputnik and there have been rumors Eichenwald no longer works at Newsweek because of the settlement.

For the record, Mr. Moran told me a week ago his lawsuit had been settled but asked me not to blog, write, comment, or make any sort of public declaration until today.  I'm not sure why, but I agreed anyway, despite the settlement having no burden or impact on me personally. 

 I'm just an advocate and blogger seeking justice for someone who was harmed by Kurt Eichenwald, someone who wasn't as fortunate as Moran....

But should have.

Back in 2005, Kurt Eichenwald, then a writer for the New York Times, was lauded worldwide for a story he wrote about the horrors of child pornography and saving a male teenager named Justin Berry from "gay pedophiles". It was a story that led to a Congressional hearing, an FBI investigation, and multiple arrests, including Tim RIchards.

But soon afterwards, and thru Tim's arrest and trial, it was learned that Kurt Eichenwald not only lured and bribed Berry into child pornography, he had administrative access to his website, and he viewed Berry masturbating and having sex with other teen boys and masturbating over 22 times and that thru an alias, would offer Justin proposals to make him more money.

It was also learned that the New York Times, thru Kurt, had pressured the then Bush government into giving both Justin and Kurt immunity and agreeing to have Richards take the blame for Kurt and Justin's crime.

For eleven years, Tim has been in a federal prison somewhere in Texas, doing time for a crime Kurt and Justin committed, biding his time, waiting for the moment when the media finally realizes what a dreadful mistake it was to accept Kurt Eichenwald's version of events as gospel.

Had they done so sooner, it's most likely Moran would haven't stumbled his way into Eichewald's ugly side, let alone anything having to do with Kurt Eichenwald.

To be clear, there was a brief moment earlier in the year in which alot of journalists, bloggers, and writers all took a sudden interest in Eichenwald's sordid past, moreso, of a website that was created seeking justice for Tim Richards.  Everyone took interest in a set of court documents Richards had published online which proved he was being framed for a crime committed by Eichenwald and Berry.

More importantly, they all began to ask that all important question: Why isn't Kurt Eichenwald in a federal prison? 

But as quickly as everyone took notice into Eichenwald's sordid past, all off sudden, no one wanted to anymore.  It's almost as if someone, perhaps some group suddenly told everyone to shut it all down, cut loose, obey orders, and fuck off.

That ought to have been the real story told yesterday or today; How the media has it both ways with a serial fabricator.

But in way though, I understand totally why this happens, over, and over, and over, and over again:

The idea or notion that all gay men are pedophiles has been instilled into everyone's brain; no one is allowed to argue against the trope, not even journalists critical of other journalists and their reporting methods.

And it doesn't really matter whether or gay people are telling the truth, accept personality, or establish themselves as civic minded.

No, yes, all it takes is for that one person to yell, scream, point, or shout pedophile or child molester, and sit back and watch everyone run, run, run away.

Or in Eichenwald's case, declare himself a hero for writing a story about saving teenagers from gay pedophiles, all the while pretending not to notice the real pedophie is Kurt Eichenwald.

what does transgenderism have to do with marriage equality?

In a nutshell...

Not.a.fucking.thing.

But It does though add further complexity to a problem I've been having of late with #DropTheT movement, a campaign that was started originally by gay and lesbian people seeking divorce from the cult of transgender.

It's overrun with social conservatives who are using transgenders as a proxy to attack gay and lesbian rights, and parents and feminists who purport to be fighting back against the transgender trend finding common ground with "gender apostates;" the latter, people who supposedly reject the ethos of modern day transgender movement but not its beliefs, customs, and practices.


All of the above are making it difficult, if not, outright impossible, for me, and maybe others, to make the case why gay community needs to divorce itself from the transgender agenda.

Gay and lesbian rights are now in danger of being rolled back thanks in part to transgenderism, vis a vis, the insane idea or notion transgender people are being segregated, humiliated, and or bulled by society because they can't use the bathroom that corresponds with their actual gender; or worse still, aren't being legally allowed to pervert themselves in full view of women and children.

Oddly, this known fact or reality seems to have been dropped if not erased altogether and replaced once again with the ridiculous, albeit homophobic arguments against marriage equality and gays.


For the past twelve hours my Twitter feed has been inducted by people arguing with someone named John Howard, an anti-gay social conservative who once tried to be in write in candidate for the Senate in Arlington, Massachusetts.  He also has a blog - eggandsperm.org - where in it, he's tried unsuccessfully to make the argument marriage only exists to support sexual reproduction and that gays should be treated like siblings and prohibited from marriage.


Seems Mr. Howard blames marriage equality for transgenderism and wants Congresss to pass The Natural Marriage and Reproduction Rights Act, a law that will end marriage equality rights in the US and "preserve natural conception rights."

It's gibberish logic and his arguments are against gays, not marriage equality. Mr. Howard needs transgenderism to be lumped in with the LGB because doing so makes it easier for him and others to argue against "LGBT" rights.
But for the sake of I don't know what exactly, let's address some of many flaws Mr. Howard has been making on Twitter.

First, T
he primary purpose of marriage is not sexual reproduction.  Gay and lesbian people won the right to marry mostly because there was no longer a rational basis for the government to exclude the right to marriage to gay and lesbian couples.  The arguments christians and conservatives had against same sex marriage weren't about marriage at all but an attack on gays.

Same sex conception is a logical fallacy created by anti-gay social conservatives to attack gay and lesbian people.

To be fair, it's a dodgy logic that was put to rest once the Supreme Court ruled same sex couples have the same right to marry as do opposite sex couples.  Unfortunately, what with gay activists making the insane claim male and female are interchangeable, and transgenders who marry, get pregnant, give birth, and refuse to acknowledge the reality of their child's gender or sex, it's sort of understandable why Howard would revive these insane arguments against the "LGBT."

There's now a lingering fear that "LGBTQ" rights are in danger of being rolled back under the Trump Administration  and anti-gay social conservatives smell blood in the air.

For decades gay and lesbian people fought hard against anti-gay bigotry and won. Now it's at risk of having it all washed away thanks to the insane cult of transgender.

Hard to believe this all started because I agreed to drop "LGBT" from my Twitter bio.
