Russia vs. the LGBT Globalists
A Climate of Hate and Fear
By Dr. Scott Lively
Whenever and wherever normal people resist the mainstreaming of homosexuality, the LGBT movement and its allies attribute that resistance to “a climate of hate and fear” orchestrated by evil “homophobes” who exploit the prejudices of the ignorant by telling lies about “gay and lesbian people” who “just want equal rights.” They predict a wave a violence against “sexual minorities” and then set out to create their own evidence in support of it, all for the purpose of manipulating public opinion and public officials into the role of “protectors of the innocent.”
Here in America the strategy was first initiated on a small scale with human rights commissions at the local level in the 1970s, then at the state level and finally nationally in conjunction with the current massive leftist campaign to create a constitutional right to “gay marriage” by judicial fiat. Homosexualist Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy famously struck down the federal Defense of Marriage Act in United States v. Windsor on the grounds that opposition to homosexual “marriage” was motivated by “animus” (hatred). SCOTUS will likely use the same false logic when it rules for “gay marriage” this summer (absent a miraculous intervention by God).
This dangerous LGBT strategy has now gone global and the target is the Russian Federation.
To those who don’t fully recognize the Machiavellian character of the LGBT movement, or the extent to which the American media (even to an increasing extent FOX News) has become a sort-of “Gay Pravda,” what I’m about to state may seem crazy, but bear with me.
Not that it doesn’t also serve other globalist interests, but I have come to believe that protecting and advancing the LGBT agenda is the primary reason that Barack Obama orchestrated the coup to start a civil war in Ukraine. (See this excellent article on the theme that Obama‘s foreign policy is ideologically-driven, though it doesn‘t specifically address the homosexual agenda: http://us-russia.org/2934-stratfors-george-friedman-and-realism-in-american-foreign-policy.html.)
We were reminded this week that the LGBT agenda is a “core value” of the Obama administration when he appointed the first ever U.S. global envoy for “gay rights” http://news.yahoo.com/us-names-first-envoy-gay-rights-211447354.html. He had previously tasked the State Department to make the LGBT agenda a top priority of US policy abroad. http://www.massresistance.org/docs/gen2/12a/obama_memo_120611/index.html
To the Obama administration this is, literally, again literally, what is meant by “American values,” though most people don’t grasp this and still translate the phrase to something benign and wholesome such as “Mom and Apple Pie” or the like. TO BO, core values are not freedom of speech — that’s clearly trumped by “gay rights” in his world. Nor economic freedom — you can’t run a business that refuses to bake cakes, take photos, or provide flowers for “gay weddings.” Core American values to Obama are publicly celebrated sodomy and doctor-assisted transsexual self-mutilation.
In this commitment to “gay rights” BO is joined by and represents an ideological cartel of global elitists who have cooperated together to force it upon the world. More on that in a later essay.
The Russian anti-propaganda law, passed June 11, 2013, was the first truly effective international counter-measure since the "gay" agenda went global around the turn of the millennium. Typically, the “gays” characterized the law as hateful and an incitement to violence, but in doing so they revealed that propagandizing children is part of their agenda, since the law simply classifies "propaganda of non-traditional sexual relationships" as material that cannot be distributed among minors and commands the government to protect children from it. http://www.article19.org/data/files/medialibrary/37129/13-06-27-russia-LA.pdf
Just after the passage of this law Barack Obama did an about-face on the "reset" policy (in which Russia had been recognized as an equal partner in the world community) and instead began reviving cold-war rhetoric.
During the Sochi Olympics of February 2014, BO tried to steer Russia back into line through the usual media-driven pressure tactics (which don't work on Russians who endured worse under the Soviets).http://www.scottlively.net/2014/02/22/pro-russian-press-conference/
When that didn't work BO started the civil war in Ukraine to force Russia into its current no-win scenario there. US diplomats were caught red-handed in the early stages of this regime change: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/02/06/victoria-nuland-eu_n_4740004.html.
Nuland said “F*** the EU,” because it resisted the plan for forced Ukraine regime change as inimical to it’s business interests but (in my view) the US didn‘t care because it‘s interests were ideological and punitive.
BO knew, of course, that Ukraine to the Russians was the strategic equivalent of Cuba, or even Hawaii, to the US and they could never simply acquiesce to the transfer of their most critical warm-water port in Crimea and oil interests in the east to a hostile US-controlled regime.
The Russians were deliberately pushed into a situation where they could be portrayed as bullies — rather like the way a couple of “gay” activists set up the conservative State of Texas as aggressors. They (allegedly) orchestrated their own arrest for sodomy so they could portray themselves as victims to a Supreme Court majority (led by Kennedy again) looking for a chance to strike down the anti-sodomy laws. Thus we got the 2003 Lawrence v Texas ruling, which was used as the “moral impetus” for the first “gay marriage” law in Massachusetts in 2004.
Texas wasn’t breaking down anyone’s door to enforce its sodomy law (any more than the Russians were aggressing against Ukrainians before the US coup) but was pushed into doing so by LGBT agents provocateur. No one produces better agents provocateur than the LGBT movement, which has presumably been well represented in the US intelligence agencies since Bill Clinton lifted the ban on top-secret security clearance for “gays” in August 2,1995.
After the Ukraine coup d’etat, BO and his media stooges then joined with anti-family GOP snake-in-the-grass John McCain and his fellow neo-cons (and their media stooges) in a relentless campaign of war propaganda on the theme that Russia is intent on reconstructing the evil Soviet empire. In just over a year Obama and McCain et al, have turned Russia into a pariah state in the view of the US and EU sheeple, based on nothing but disingenuous portrayals of the Ukraine crisis and unsupported fear-mongering that Russia intends military adventures against the Baltic states.
Incidentally, John McCain’s former chief strategist, Steve Schmidt, was hired in 2013 by the ACLU “to build GOP support in the states for legislation to make gay marriage legal” http://www.politico.com/playbook/0613/playbook11032.html.
And while we’re on the subject of Republicans, don’t believe for a second that the GOP establishment is not kowtowing to “gay rights” behind the scenes just as much as the Dems do it openly. Even under ostensibly pro-family George W. Bush the State Department was pushing the homosexual agenda around the world. I personally confronted the diplomatic staff at the US embassy in Riga, Latvia in 2007 for helping to organize a “Gay Pride” parade in defiance of an overwhelming pro-family majority in that conservative nation.
Apparently deciding it’s now time to stop hiding their homophilia, Bush dynasty heir apparent Jeb just hired a top LGBT activist as his communications director http://stevedeace.com/news/bush-hires-one-of-d-c-s-30-most-influencial-homosexuals-as-communications-director/
And here’s another bombshell that missed the conservative media. The Human Rights Campaign effort to characterize American pro-family activism in foreign countries as fostering “hate and fear” (an effort which labels me Public Enemy #1) was funded by GOP mega-donors Paul Singer and Daniel Loeb http://www.washingtonblade.com/2013/11/06/controversy-over-hrcs-international-push-paul-singer/
Back to Russia. Recently I was interviewed by the BBC for a documentary the producers said was about “the global culture war.” However, the interview focused heavily on my reaction to the reports of — Surprise! — an alleged increase in “anti-gay” violence in countries that have passed laws against homosexuality” particularly Russia and Uganda These reports (which they never showed actually showed me) were allegedly prepared by Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, the United Nations, and Sexual Minorities Uganda (SMUG), bastions of impartiality all. (Btw, SMUG is suing me for “Crimes Against Humanity” for preaching against homosexuality in their country). http://www.scottlively.net/2012/06/28/my-analysis-of-the-smug-lawsuit/
This brings us back full circle to the theme of this essay. I told the BBC interviewer that I did not view any of these sources as trustworthy on the issue of homosexuality and cited the Matthew Shepard and David Kato murders as evidence. Indeed, I had already accused Human Rights Watch of indulging in pro-“gay” propaganda in their first video purporting to show Russian anti-gay violence (released to coincide with the Olympics), where I exposed the LGBT movement’s fraud in their characterizations of the Shepard and Kato incidents: http://www.scottlively.net/2014/02/10/the-anti-russian-human-rights-watch-video-is-a-hoax/
So here’s the moment of truth for pro-family analysts and advocates. Do you really grasp the extent to which LGBT leaders and activists will go to serve their own interests? You’ve seen what they do at the street level, against Christian businesses, etc. What would that deviltry look like on an international level, if, say, the President of the United States were a “gay” activist?
In August of 2013 I sent a open letter to President Putin, thanking him for signing the anti-propaganda law. In it I warned him “not to assume that you have fully solved the problem by the enactment of this law. The battle to protect your society from homosexualization has only just begun, and you may be surprised to discover in the coming months and years just how aggressively many world leaders will work to try to intimidate and coerce you to capitulate to homosexualist demands.” http://www.scottlively.net/2013/08/30/an-open-letter-to-president-vladimir-putin/
Regardless of where one stands on Ukraine or Vladimir Putin, just for a moment consider where the pro-family movement would be if it hadn't been for the Ukraine coup. Russia would still be (relatively speaking) a respected member of the international community offering an alternative, genuinely pro-family model for social policy. There would likely be at least a half-dozen nations which would have adopted the anti-propaganda law for themselves (with many more considering it) and there would be a healthy international debate raging on pro-family vs LGBT visions for the future. I believe the tide would probably have begun to turn in our favor, at least on the global scene, if not yet in the US or EU.
Is it really so far-fetched to believe that morally wicked, Imperialistic, Alinsky-ite Obama (credibly alleged to be a homosexual himself) started the Ukrainian civil war to punish Russia for opposing the “core value” of America, the priority of his State Department? Or (more importantly to the “gays”) to prevent the Russians from leading a pro-family counter-revolution in the world?
Are you as a pro-family conservative really going to accept the word of Barack Obama, John McCain and the mainstream media that Russia is the bad guy in this story? If you do, you really don’t know your enemy — and I’m not talking about Putin.
Next time you hear the implication that Russia has created “a climate of hate and fear” in Ukraine, Russia or anywhere else, just remember whose go-to strategy this is for smearing its opponents and how deeply they are entrenched in the media, the White House and now the GOP establishment as well.
