President Obama Proclaims June “Gay Pride Month”

Written by 

Every year he has been in office President Obama has made it a point to cozy up to America’s tiny homosexual activist minority by officially recognizing June as “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month.” This year, of course, was no exception. Having just come out officially in favor of legalizing same-sex “marriage,” the President followed up on June 1 by issuing this year’s proclamation setting aside the entire month to commemorate the valuable contributions that gays, lesbians, transvestites, and an odds-and-ends assortment of sexually- and gender-confused individuals have made to American society.

“The lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community has written a proud chapter” in American history, declared Obama with this year’s announcement. “From brave men and women who came out and spoke out, to union and faith leaders who rallied for equality, to activists and advocates who challenged unjust laws and marched on Washington, LGBT Americans and allies have achieved what once seemed inconceivable. This month, we reflect on their enduring legacy, celebrate the movement that has made progress possible, and recommit to securing the fullest blessings of freedom for all Americans.”

The President used the proclamation to remind the “gay” community of all he has done for its members, and how much homosexual voters owe him their support come November. “Since I took office, my administration has worked to broaden opportunity, advance equality, and level the playing field for LGBT people and communities,” Obama said. He pointed out that it was he who forced through the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr., Hate Crimes Prevention Act, bullied Congress into ending the common sense “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” ban on homosexuals serving in the military, and is currently doing everything he can to overturn the federal Defense of Marriage Act and legislate the redefinition of same-sex partnerships as “marriage.”

But “more remains to be done to ensure every single American is treated equally, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity,” continued the President. “Moving forward, my administration will continue its work to advance the rights of LGBT Americans,” he promised as he officially recognized June as “LGBT Pride” month and invited the American people to celebrate homosexuality as a normal — even praiseworthy — lifestyle.

On the heels of his proclamation, Obama appeared at a June 6 fundraiser attended by some 600 homosexual activists and “gay rights” supporters, including lesbian talk-show host Ellen DeGeneres and 1970s pop singing star and actress Cher, whose own daughter went through “gender reassignment” and changed her name from Chastity to “Chaz” in an effort to live as a man.

OneNewsNow.com reported that Obama “appeared to feed off the energy” of the crowd as he pledged to block any attempt at the reinstatement of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” ban. Signing the repeal of that ban, Obama said, was a high-water mark for him as President.

On June 5, Stars and Stripes, the government-funded armed forces newspaper, described the results of the lifting of that ban, joyfully reporting that homosexual military personnel openly celebrated their lifestyle at a special “LGBT Pride” reception thrown by the U.S. Ambassador to Japan in Tokyo. “I can’t believe I’ve been in the Air Force 23 years living in secret, hiding who I am, and now I’m invited to a reception by the emissary of the president of the United States,” Stars and Stripes quoted one attendee, Air Force Master Sgt. Marc Maschhoff.

The military newspaper reported that the event “was an exciting and emotional night for Maschhoff and a handful of other U.S. servicemembers. Maschhoff traveled with his boyfriend — who is also an airman — from Misawa Air Base in northern Japan to Tokyo for the event. Maschhoff said he was invited by the embassy because of his affiliation with the group Outserve, a Washington, D.C.-based association for gay servicemembers with chapters worldwide.”

Amazingly, President Obama has appealed to his supposed Christian faith to justify his support for normalizing the homosexual lifestyle through the force of his office. OneNewsNow reported that on the same day he made his “LGBT Pride” proclamation, and right after a group of black pastors asked to meet with him over their concerns about his endorsement of same-sex marriage as a civil right, “the president pointed to his wife and told ABC News, ‘When we think about our faith, the thing at root that we think about is not only Christ sacrificing Himself on our behalf, but it’s also the golden rule — treat others the way you’d want to be treated.’”

Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality pointed out that the President is behaving “as if rights based on perverse and immoral behavior are basic rights…. Of course, those aren’t basic rights. Basic rights are what we all share as Americans. Rights based on perversion, on changeable homosexual sin, are not basic rights.” He added that “for a man like Obama, who professes to be a faithful Christian, to be celebrating an agenda based on using the government to create rights based on changeable homosexual behavior — that’s a travesty.”

Bob Stith, a strategist on gender issues for the Southern Baptist Convention and head of its Task Force on Ministry to Homosexuals, told Baptist Press News that Obama is purposefully casting “all those who have a genuine, biblically based belief that homosexual acts are sin as haters.” But, he added, “it is not prejudicial to say that certain acts which have been viewed as sin for over 3,000 years by all three major religions are still sin.”

Stith added that the “words the president uses in his drive to normalize homosexuality clearly portray any who disagree with him as prejudiced bigots. Those who agree are loving and brave. The danger here is that those who dare to seek to protect the definition of marriage which has stood unchallenged for thousands of years are themselves the victims of prejudice and hate.”

Sadly, Stith said, Obama’s “LGBT Pride” proclamation “shows no interest in preventing this kind of bigotry. Rather it is another example that if something is repeated often enough it will be accepted as truth even if the evidence doesn’t support it.”

    Actually Ross, as documented in Scott Lively and Kevin Abrams book "The Pink Swastika", homosexuality played a huge role in the Nazi Party.
    http://www.defendthefamily.com/pfrc/books/pinkswastika/html/the_pinkswastika_4th_edition_-_final.htm

    American Family Association's Bryan Fischer wrote an excellent article entitled "Throckmorton, history, and gays in the military" describing the homosexual/Nazi connection as well:

    "As far as the role of homosexuals in the rise of the Nazi Party, historians for decades — before homosexuality became such a touchy topic — were quite matter-of-fact about the truth that Hitler recruited and used homosexual thugs.

    Here, for instance, are several excerpts from William Shirer's classic work, "The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich."

    "But the brown-shirted S.A...many of its top leaders, beginning with its chief, Roehm, were notorious homosexual perverts." (p. 120)

    "He, who was so monumentally intolerant by his very nature, was strangely tolerant of one human condition — a man's morals. No other party in Germany came near to attracting so many shady characters. As we have seen, a conglomeration of pimps, murderers, homosexuals, alcoholics and blackmailers flocked to the party as if to a natural haven. Hitler did not care as long as they were useful to him." (pp. 121-122)

    "...[T]here was a demand...that the criminals and especially the perverts be expelled from the movement. This Hitler frankly refused to do." (p. 122)

    "The Munich S.A. had become notorious for the homosexual habits of Lieutenant Edmund Heines and his friends..." (p. 122)

    Here is historian Louis Snyder:

    "What was needed, Roehm believed, was a proud and arrogant lot who could brawl, carouse, smash windows, kill and slaughter for the hell of it. Straights, in his eyes, were not as adept in such behavior as practicing homosexuals."

    Here is historian Thomas Fuchs:

    "The principle function of this army-like organization was beating up anyone who opposed the Nazis, and Hitler believed this was a job best undertaken by homosexuals."

    Historian H.R. Knickerbocker:

    "Roehm, as the head of 2,500,000 Storm Troops had surrounded himself with a staff of perverts. His chiefs, men of rank of Gruppenfuhrer or Obergruppenfuhrer, commanding units of several hundred thousand Storm Troopers, were almost without exception homosexuals. Indeed, unless a Storm Troop officer were homosexual he had no chance of advancement."

    Machtan writes credibly that Roehm was murdered in 1933 not because Hitler was offended by his homosexuality but because Roehm knew of Hitler's sexual proclivities and threatened to expose him publicly.

    The Nazis also trashed and burned the Sex Research Institute, headed by the effeminate homosexual Max Hirschfeld, again not because of its link to homosexuality but because the institute contained so many damning files on the sexual inclinations of leaders in the Nazi Party.

    For instance, Ludwig L. Lenz was the assistant director of the institute, and explained why the institute was the "first victim which fell to the new regime."

    "The answer to this is simple...We knew too much. It would be against medical principles to provide a list of the Nazi leaders and their perversions [but]...not ten percent of the men who, in 1933, took the fate of Germany into their hands, were sexually normal...Many of these personages were known to us directly through consultations; we heard about others from their comrades in the party...and of others we saw the tragic results....Our knowledge of such intimate secrets regarding members of the Nazi Party and other documentary material — we possessed about forty thousand confessions and biographical letters — was the cause of the complete and utter destruction of the Institute of Sexology."

    Historical Note: Gaiety Cut Short

    In the 10-year run up before the Nazis took over the German Government, during the German Depression—many homosexuals and transvestites identified themselves, made known their sexual orientation. Then after the Nazis and Hitler took control of Germany, known homosexuals were arrested and charged as criminals under Reich Laws. Interestingly, there were known homosexuals in high levels of Nazi Government and in the Military that kept a low profile; perhaps the reason they weren’t arrested. Today in part due to Obama, gays, lesbians and transvestites are openly celebrating their sexual orientation. History has shown such celebrations can be cut short if a totalitarian or other government unfriendly to homosexuals takes power. In retrospect, some things that happened in Germany in the prelude to Nazi Fascism are now manifesting in the United States, for example (NDAA) The National Defense Authorization Act appears almost a copy of the Nazi’s (Discriminatory Decrees) passed by the German Parliament and sign by Hitler on February 28, 1933 that suspended sections of the German Constitution that protected civil liberties. Under (NDAA) U.S. Government can deem any person or group a threat to national security; a terrorist, combatant or belligerent to order someone arrested and detained indefinitely without charges or trial. That might potentially include homosexuals should a future U.S. Government be unfriendly to gays or for political gain invoke NDAA to eliminate homosexuals.

    I believe that people with a homosexual life should be treated with kindness and not with hate or hate crimes. Hate crimes need to be punished by the law and this includes any type of Bullying of another person only because of their sexual choice. I also believe if two humans that practice homosexuality should have the legal right to practice it in private, in their own home of choice.

    Personally, I have enough in my own life to try to deal with and to do the right things and do not have any need to tell anyone else what to do or how to do, Unless I am asked. So in that respect, I would hope we can all take care of our own lives to the fullest and stop the hate of others that may be different than ourselves. We all really are different from one another and No two snowflakes are the same.

    I still of the belief that marriage is between a Man and a Woman, and children to have a Mother and a Father. At this time, I cannot see changing this. But if the LBGT's want to live together and do whatever, that is their choice. I see absolutely NO Reason at all to Flaunt their sex in front of everyone on the streets and see NO reason for any Public Schools Education should be teaching what it all is and/or what they do with each other.
    Sexual Education should still come from the home, regardless of what that is.

    No hate here, No special treat either. Just be human, be kind, keep all your sexual activity from being flaunted all over the streets. Thank you for the same consideration you want from everyone else.
