Gay Bashing: Its the Collaborators, Stupid

by Stop Uncle Tom Gay-Bashers Thursday, Feb. 03, 2005 at 6:15 AM

The necons, directed by Karl Rove and the Bush Faith-based Initive federal money, is wooing black preachers willing to be puppets in their homophobic campaign against 'gay marriage'

As usual, the Dummycrats and the corporate liberals have been caught flat footed by the ne-cons, who are pick-pocketing what has been the most solid base for the Demos and progressives since the New Deal - inner-city black church-goers.

WHAT'S NEEDED IS A RETALATORY STATEGY BY REAL PROGESSIVES, INCLUDING LGBT'S, SUCH AS REGISTERING AND VOTING IN THE REPUBLICAN CONGRESSIONAL PRIMARIES in 2006[ for a progressive, or , IF NONE, the candidate most embarrassing to the GOP, such as Bill Simon, Calif. candidate for Governor in 2002] , AND ABSTAINING FROM CHRISTMAS SHOPPING OR GIVING TO ANY RELIGIOUS BASED CHARITIES.

THE CHIEF NEGRO-INCHARGE-UNCLE TOMS ARE LISTED IN THE TIMES ARTICLE AS :

CRENSHAW CHRISTIAN CENTER'S K. C. PRICE AND REV. JESSE LEE PETERSON.

DIRECT ACTION PICKETING OF THESE TWO SUPERSTITION-SPREADING, GAY-BASHING, BUSH FAITH-BASED HAND-OUT-SEEKING TOM'S SHOULD BEGIN AT ONCE. PRESSURE SHOULD BE PUT ON THEIR CHURCHES TO DISMISS THESE TWO ANTI-LGBT ASSHOLES, AS WELL AS THE OTHER TOM PREACHERS MENTIONED IN THIS AND ANOTHER LA TIMES ARTICLE A WEEK or so AGO [FEATURED A MILWALKEE, WISC. 'MINISTER']!!!

WHEN WILL PROGRESSIVES STOP STANDING FLAT FOOTED AND ALLOWING THE NEOCONS TO SUCKER PUNCH THEM???

IT'S NOT THE BUSHES ALONE THAT NEED TO BE OPPOSED, IT'S THEIR COLLABORATORS, SUCH AS THESE SO-CALLED PREACHERS.

See article :

"Black conservatives who supported President Bush in 2004 and gained new prominence within the Republican Party are launching a loosely knit movement that they hope will transform the role African Americans play in national politics.

The effort will be visible today [FEB. 1] at the *** Crenshaw Christian Center, one of Los Angeles' biggest black churches, headed by televangelist ***Frederick K.C. Price. More than 100 African American ministers are to gather in the first of several regional summits to build support for

****banning same-sex marriage — a signature issue that drew socially conservative blacks to the Republican column last year.







Before the meeting, one prominent minister plans to unveil a "Black Contract With America on Moral Values," a call for Bible-based action by government and churches to promote conservative priorities. It is patterned loosely on the "Contract With America" that former House Speaker Newt Gingrich used 10 years ago to inaugurate an era of GOP dominance in Congress.

A separate group with ties to Gingrich will announce a similar "Mayflower Compact for Black America" later this month in Washington, which includes plans to organize in key states ahead of the 2006 and 2008 elections. And at the end of the month, the Heritage Foundation will cosponsor a gathering of black conservatives in Washington designed to counter dominance of the "America-hating black liberal leadership" and to focus African American voters on moral issues.

Those events all enjoy support from the Republican Party and its allies in the philanthropic and religious worlds. The meetings have a common goal: to foster a political realignment that, if successful, would challenge the Democrats' decades-long lock on the loyalty of black voters.

The effort has proved so successful already that Democrats who make up the Congressional Black Caucus are quietly expressing alarm — and planning countermeasures.

"I am frightened by what is happening," said Rep. Major R. Owens, an 11-term Democratic congressman from New York who has been conferring with colleagues in the Congressional Black Caucus. "Our party is in grave danger. This Republican movement is going to expand exponentially unless we do something."

In the last seven presidential elections, the GOP's share of the black vote ranged from 8% to 11% nationwide.

But by courting conservative blacks in battleground states — reaching out through programs such as the president's faith-based initiative — GOP organizers believe they made the difference that secured Bush's victory in 2004. In Ohio, for instance, a concerted effort increased black support for Bush from 9% in 2000 to 16% in 2004, providing a cushion that allowed the president to win the pivotal state outright on election night....."
