CA Gay’s Are Cowering, Cowardly Morons Who Deserve Prop 8

with 7 comments

US-POLITICS-GAY MARRIAGEBy Being Afraid To Confront California’s Liberal Democratic Establishment & Obama’s Campaign Managers, California’s Gays Lost Big.

So why are they trampling crosses and blaming Christian conservatives?  They didn’t pass it. Democrats, Obama supporters did.

.

Here are some facts as opposed to the bullshit being blogged and talked about California’s Proposition 8:

  • 52% of the electorate supported the ban on same-sex marriage
  • Men and Women supported it fairly equally
  • 53% of Latinos threw their support to the ban
  • 70% of African Americans supported it
  • President-Elect Barack Obama has his opposition to Gay marriage, on religious grounds
  • 49% of Asians supported it
  • 61% of Californian’s supported Obama, 10% higher than were against Prop 8
  • House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has stated her strong opposition to Gay marriage
  • DEMOCRATS ARE STILL THE LARGEST VOTING GROUP, BUT NUMBER OF INDEPENDENTS AT NEW HIGH.

    At the close of registration for the June 2008 primary, 16.1 million of the 23 million eligible voters in the state were registered to vote: 44% as Democrats, 33% as Republicans, and 19% as independents. The number of Californians registered in the Republican Party has declined since the 2004 primary, while the numbers of Democrats and independents have both increased by over half a million voters: Democrats from 6.5 to 7.1 million; independents from 2.5 to 3.1 million.1_marriage-equality

  • REGISTERED AND LIKELY VOTERS VARY NOTABLY ACROSS REGIONS.

    Although Los Angeles County is home to the largest share of the state’s adult population (27%), only 25% of the state’s likely voters reside in the county, which also includes the largest percentage of residents in the state not registered to vote (32%). The San Francisco Bay Area constitutes 20% of the state’s adult population but claims 23% of the state’s likely voters and only 15% of those not registered to vote. On the other hand, the proportions of the overall adult population and likely voters are similar in the Central Valley, Orange/San Diego Counties, and the Inland Empire. For example, the Central Valley contains 17% of the state’s adult population and 17% of its likely voters.

  • Among those voters self-identifying as “Christians” as a whole, 70% supported Proposition 8. But by racial break down, over 85% of African American’s supported it.  Slightly more Black women supported the proposition than did Black men.

So, what this tells us is that although the San Francisco area has less total voters than the Los Angeles area, more Bay Area citizens actually turn out to vote.  By a margin of 15% over Christian’s as a whole, African American voters supported it. Over 90% of them were Democrats.

Once again, Gay’s have misplaced their loyalty for absolutely no logical reason. Once again, the Gay Community has turned a blind eye to reality and are “blaming” their loss on White, Conservative Christians, when in point of fact, if more liberal Democrats who were Black, Hispanic and Asian had opposed Prop 8, if Barack Obama had not come out in opposition to Gay marriage, the measure would have been defeated.

So long as Gay’s participate in this blatant fraud on the part of their so-called leaders, ignoring the party and political philosophy (liberalism) which has always sold them down the river, they have no one to blame but themselves.  They are so insecure and afraid to lay the blame where it belongs, they will continue to abdicate responsibility for their future, for their lack of political power.

1_gay_crossfirereWhere are the Gay leaders with the integrity to acknowledge they were not done in by Christians, White Christians, but were done in by the Liberal Democrats and their demogogery, like Obama’s,  of opposing Gay marriage, but also opposing Proposition 8?  Can’t they acknowledge the truth?  Or do they prefer playing victim, blaming Christians, and Republicans out of habit?

Thousands of gay rights activists have been lining the streets of California cities to express their deep anger, frustration and demoralization at the passage of Proposition 8. And this week, organizers said they were ready to take their fight global.  As the grassroots coalition of loosely-organized groups on such websites as Facebook and MySpace succeeded in delivering winning numbers of protesters in California and Utah, momentum for a national, and even international, effort has emerged.

Signs that California was about to export its newly-found gay activism first appeared over the weekend. I predict this is but the tip of the iceberg in a new Culture War front.  There are tens of thousands of radical leftist organizers with nothing to do after the Obama victory.  Nothing to do but falsely blame Christians for all manner of complaints, and the attacks on Mormons and Evangelical Christian churches has already began.

Have no doubt the Obama organization is breathing a sigh of relief, and certainly encouraging all this, because it will distract President-elect Obama’s most radical, fanatical supporters from focusing on his failure to make good on his most left-wing promises.

On Wednesday, in New York City, thousands of gay rights activists lined themselves along Columbus Ave. outside of the Manhattan Mormon Temple near Lincoln Center to protest Mormon involvement in the passage of Proposition 8.

Gay rights activists say the Mormon Church’s meddling – and overwhelming financial support – in California politics tipped approval of the gay marriage ban. Many of the protests in California were directed at the Mormon Church.

Dennis Williams told The Associate Press:

.

I’m fed up and disgusted with religious institutions taking political stances and calling them moral when it’s nothing but politics.  Meanwhile they enjoy tax-free status while tying to deny me rights that should be mine at the state and federal level.”

.

The Obama victory and the complicity of the press in actively supporting and promoting him has unleased a major Culture War initiative.  Watch and see.

  2. Hm.

    The anti-marriage crew spent $350 million dollars and lost 9% of the votes they’d had in 2000, passing Prop 8 only by a narrow margin.

    President-Elect Obama has explicitly said he’s againast Prop 8 and for repealing DoMA – which repeal will give all legally-married same-sex couples in the US federal recognition of their marriage.

    The anti-gay bigots are lying liars that lie a lot, basically…

  3. Well, obviously you don’t spin. Much.

    Obama did what most politicians do, he positioned himself firmly on BOTH sides of the issue.

    I cannot believe you missed Obama categorically stating, in public, on TV, for all to hear, that he was AGAINST GAY MARRIAGE. On religious grounds.

    Months later, shortly before the election, when asked, he said he did not endorse Prop 8.

    That was sure a courageous stand, wasn’t it? He spent no money to help them, funneled zero dollars to the anti-8 campaign, and didn’t exactly go out of his way to make his feelings known. As opposed to the many public statements and press releases about his opposition to Gay marriage.

    Read up…even Nancy Pelosi stated Obama’s position, her position, the official position of the Democratic Party.

    But a nice try, jesurgislac, albeit lame, to re-write history.

    October 21, 2008, Sacramento Bee: “For what it’s worth, Hollywood-favored Democratic Presidential Candidate Barack Obama opposes gay marriage.”http://www.sacbee.com/825/story/1332620.html

    Shoreline Times – 10/21/2008

    A step forward

    “Both Barack Obama and John McCain
    oppose gay marriage but believe that gay couples should be given the same legal rights as heterosexual ones.”

    Like Barack Obama, I am strongly opposed to the notion of gay marriage. That is also the official position of the Democratic National Committee.”

  4. I cannot believe you missed Obama categorically stating, in public, on TV, for all to hear, that he was AGAINST GAY MARRIAGE. On religious grounds.

    I didn’t miss it. But if Obama does repeal DOMA, then regardless of his personal religious views on marriage, he will have ensured that same-sex married couples get federal recognition.

    It is entirely possible – and I hope it’s true of Obama – for a religious person both to believe that gay marriage is against their religion, and to believe that the state has no business enforcing religious rules on anyone.

    But in any case, your claim that “President-Elect Barack Obama endorsed Proposition 8” is simply a lie: he did not.

  5. That all you got? Some petty nit-picking?

    FYI, it was a mis-type, about Obama endorsing Proposition 8. Thanks for being so civil and pointing that out by calling me a liar. I corrected my mistake.

    Your post is typical of Obama-bots. You have chosen to believe, hope Obama will do something he has shown no past proclivity to do, and demonize Christians and conservatives, never failing to give them the same benefit of the doubt you bend over backward to give Obama.

    Democrats (liberals all) have never given the Gay Community anything. Not once, not ever. Oh wait, I misspoke. Bill Clinton gave Gay’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”!

    And as I said, leaders in the Gay community continue to follow them blindly, or perhaps by design, those “leaders” paid in small ways by the Democrat power brokers to sell their own out.

    I can see you are someone not interested in facts, and are, like most liberals, a petty tyrant, refusing posts that show you to be wrong on your own blog, but expecting conservatives to grant you free expression on theirs.

    Be gone now, you will not be allowed to post anymore.

  7. To state that Barack Obama “has [stated] his opposition to Gay marriage, on religious grounds” is bending the truth a bit.

    While Obama personally believes that marriage should be between a man and a woman, he explicitly opposed proposition 8. He also said he supported repeal of federal DOMA “to provide equal federal rights and benefits to LGBT couples.”

    In the light of that it’s disingenuous to represent Obama as a political supporter of Proposition 8.

    The analysis of pro-Obama voters shows that many who support Obama also support Proposition 8. I agree that that is a political factor that should be addressed by the campaigns to remove obstacles to gay marriage in California and elsewhere.

    But make no mistake, on what was a no-hoper issue as recently as the last Clinton administration, considerable progress has been made. In particular younger voters do not support anti-gay measures as strongly as their elders do, and there is evidence that this represents a generational shift.
