The radical anti-gay right and Donald Trump

0 comments

 

Some years ago I got my name on an electronic mailing list from an organization that calls itself “Public Advocate of the United States.” Despite its official-sounding name and logo,

it has nothing to do with the U.S. government but is in fact a rabidly right wing hate group whose primary obsession is promoting an anti-gay agenda. For instance, here’s the beginning of an email they sent me yesterday:

The radical Homosexual Lobby’s champion — President Barrack Obama — is counting down his final days in office.

That’s why they’re wasting no time on a plan to ambush Congress during the lame duck session.

You see, the Homosexual Lobby is using everything in their arsenal to ram their radical Gay Bill of Special Right’s (H.R. 3185) through Congress and onto Obama’s desk.

Why would I want to receive such nonsense? To be honest, because it makes me giggle! Public Advocate’s “president” is a chap named Eugene Delgaudio, a longtime conservative Republican activist, who has actually been elected to local office in his home town of Sterling, Virginia, a part of Loudoun County that, oddly enough, voted for Hillary Clinton over Trump by a sizable majority. I enjoy replying to Eugene’s emails, which come about once every two weeks, and my replies don’t bounce back. Generally, I’ll write something amusingly provocative—at least, I think my replies are funny. Possibly Eugene–if he reads them—doesn’t. He’s never bothered to write me back, to my regret.

So far-out is Degaudio that on Public Advocate’s website two of his highest-visibilty links are called “Ask Congress To Impeach Hillary Clinton” and “Paul Ryan Silent About Horse-Man Marriage Too.” This latter statement is reminiscent, of course, of Rick Santorum’s infamous 2003 comment comparing gay sex to “man on dog,” proving once again that these right wingers have some weird fixation on bestiality that—so far as I know, and this is pretty familiar territory to me—is non-existent in the gay community. In fact, when we think of bestiality, we have images of rural Appalachian farmers, the kind who probably voted for Trump if they bothered to vote at all, doing things with their cows and sheep.

So what is this HR 3185 Eugene is getting so frothy about? Dubbed by its sponsor “The Equality Act,” it was introduced into the 114th Congress last year by a Democratic congressman from Rhode Island, David Cicillne, and would extend the 1964 Civil Rights Act to include sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity among the prohibited categories of discrimination or segregation in places of public accommodation.” While almost the entire House Democratic Caucus co-sponsored it, it was snuffed out by Paul Ryan’s Republican majority, and while it’s still technically alive, PredictGov.com, which provides real-time predictions of pending Congressional bills, gives it a “1% chance of being enacted.”

Delgaudio’s homophobia has expressed itself through some real howlers. When the Transportation Security Administration proposed full-body airport scans, Delgaudio declared it part of the “homosexual agenda,” adding, “It’s the federal employee’s version of the Gay Bill of Special Rights… That means the next TSA official that gives you an ‘enhanced pat down’ could be a practicing homosexual secretly getting pleasure from your submission.” Lord knows, these TSA queens are everywhere. I hate when they touch my junk.

Then, a few years ago, Eugene attacked a “pirate festival” held annually for the last century in Tampa, Florida, which he accused of being infiltrated by “radical homosexuals” seeking to exploit unsuspecting college students. “When the young men are sufficiently intoxicated, homosexuals dressed as pirates whisk them away to God knows where to take advantage of them sexually.” I confess to having done that myself. Arggh! Me keester got meself a right fine collidge boy down attha festival, me heartie! Ass rye!

What is it about gay rights that makes people like Eugene crazy, anyway? And I do mean crazy, as in “as a loon.” And guess what? Anti-LGBT nutbags now have their toes into the White House. “Every one of Donald Trump’s Cabinet Picks So Far Opposes Gay Rights,” New York Magazine reports.

That’s scary, but the fact that The Donald’s hunky eldest son, Donald, Jr., has a long history in New York’s drag community, where he used to be known as Lady Tramp, may give us some reassurance.
