One of the things we have seen with the Kaitlyn Hunt case that has really struck me is how the gay rights movement has been used as suckers by her family.
As more and more facts continue to come out and the reactions of Ms. Hunt’s defenders become more vitriolic to the point where her father is making copyright claims on her pictures ,any assertion by any person not 100% behind gay marriage is to be ignored and if you are in fact Gay and don’t support Kate Hunt you become an unperson:
A gay couple on the Treasure Coast is afraid to show their faces because they say they’ve been attacked personally for their opinions opposing Kaitlyn Hunt. They fear backlash from the “Free Kate” campaign that is 52,000 members strong on Facebook as of Tuesday night.
“I’ve already been vilified for my opinion on social media.”
But this isn’t a low profile gay couple, up until a few days ago, both men held high ranking positions in a Treasure Coast LGBT advocacy group.
It all seems like something is happening that I warned the Gay Community about back in September of last year.
As you know I’m an opponent of Gay Marriage and would support a constitutional amendment to define marriage as one man one woman, but I’ll tell you this, if I was a supporter of Gay Marriage with even the slightest knowledge of the history of the Gay Movement and I read the arguments in the Gawker article (you can almost hear the cry of “Bigot” to those would disagree with the author) I wouldn’t just be insulted, I’d be furious.
I suggested the gay movement get in front of this business fast to head it off and not be associated with such a movement but as the game plan of the #freekate people becomes more plain it seems exactly the opposite is going on. We are starting to see people using this as a “bigotry litmus test” and no amount of information to the contrary will be accepted.
This is already a trap that apparently with the exception of a few people such as Joan McCarter the left and their media allies foolishly didn’t avoid as Stacy McCain put it:
“To say that liberal media coverage of Hunt has been ‘favorable’ is to say that the Sistine Chapel ceiling depicts a favorable image of God.”
And that’s really what it’s about, y’know? Who gives a crap about a commonplace criminal procedure in Indian River County, Florida?
But the media said everybody should care about it: The Today show actually portrayed an accused sex offender as a sympathetic victim!
What was the name of the producer who approved that, huh? I would like that person to explain the half-assed background research that led them to believe that Kaitlyn Ashley Hunt (Booking #2013-00000708) was a plausible civil-rights martyr.
and that support isn’t confined to media
That kind of high-powered public-relations blitz is not cheap and does not happen by accident. Hunt’s supporters include the American Civil Liberties Union and the gay-rights group Equality Florida — the latter organization led by Nadine Smith, who met privately with President Obama two years ago — as well as the 501(c)3 non-profit Purpose Foundation, which receives funding through such philanthropic giants as the Ford Foundation.
And if these traps weren’t bad enough, with June 1st coming the #FreeKate movement is in a position to set the biggest trap of all under 100 miles and 100 minutes away from the School where it all took place.
For those of you who don’t know June 1st annually is Gay Day at Disney World Florida and apparently has been for over two decades:
“Homosexuals will be celebrating the 23rd anniversary of Gay Day wearing matching Gay Day merchandise, such as T-shirts,” the One Million Moms website reads. “There will also be transvestites dressed in drag showing their support for the event.”
And for those who think it’s just a day where Gay people can enjoy the park in solidarity it appears it might be a little more …interesting:
I can’t help but think of, and feel sorry for – the unsuspecting family who saved for years for a once in a lifetime trip – only to arrive and find that Disney had in fact, been invaded by he-women and shaved down muscle boys. By itself that would not be a problem, but the sheer number of people who seem to go out of their way to rub their sexuality in everyones face during this ‘event’ is nothing short of disgraceful…
… I don’t like it when I hear pompous windbags telling me I’m going to burn in hell for being gay, and I’m sure most of the free world would appreciate a visit to Disney World that did not include the vision of grown men in go-go shorts, and ads for lubricant prominently displayed throughout the host hotel. Oh, and while we’re on the subject of ‘image’ at the host hotel (this year it was the Sheraton World on International Drive)– the line of beer trucks outside the resort was a nice touch, and the liquor kiosks and condom ads every 5 feet will certainly not further the image of us as a bunch of drunken sex fiends.
our proudly gay 42 year old man goes on.
It is widely known throughout the gay community in Orlando that if you want good drugs and great sex, the first week of June is a great time to visit. So much so, that the Orange County Sheriff’s office found it necessary to station deputies and drug sniffing dogs in the lobby of the host hotel. And before the oppression chorus starts warming up, just get real – we all know that it goes on in droves during gay week – and it’s not ‘oppression’ if it’s justified. I don’t mean to imply that every person attending gay days is a drug crazed lunatic – the vast majority are not – but no one in the gay community can deny how pervasive this problem is, and the problem travels with us.
Now given that clientele and event and more importantly given this map with Disney under 100 miles and 100 minutes away…
…I would bet real money that the Hunt family will decide this is the perfect day to pack up the family and head to Disney World.
And therein lies the trap.
The Hunt family’s efforts have been hampered by the release of facts, facts which show not a person persecuted due to sexual orientation but an indulged young lady pursuing a very underage girl after repeated attempts by her parents to warn her off, that story has been slowing getting out online but what if they find an audience that hasn’t heard that side of the story?
Picture it, what do you think will happen if the young Kaitlyn Ashley Hunt and her parents come to Disney world and tell the story of the struggle of their young blond attractive 18-year-old girl who, according to the Media, activists and her supporters is being persecuted by the family of her lover simply because she is a lesbian to the crowd Pete Werner is describing?
They will hoist the entire family on their shoulders, and open up their wallets.
As of the moment of this writing the Free Kate site has raised what, $24,000? You get them down to Disney on June 1st with a smart phone and a credit card reader and it will be the most money a phony blond has raised since Tina Brown talked people into buying Newsweek for her.
It will be great news for the Hunt family, it will be great news for the Free Katie Crowd.
But for the Gay Community that is starting to win more and more votes and arguments the whole Kaitlyn Hunt = Rosa Parks business simply makes them pawns not only in the Hunt’s family quest to avoid any consequences for her daughter but for the same crowd that has looked at the reactions to that Gawker piece with great interest.
You have been warned.
Update This guy nails it:
If the #FreeKate movement wants all LGBT persons to be treated equally, that equality isn’t just limited to legal privileges. Legal responsibilities are just as important, and that includes punishments for the commission of crimes.
In this case, true LGBT equality under the law would ensure Kate sees her day in court.
Does the LGBT movement want equality or power? That is the question and this case will provide the answer.
