Porno Pete’s Hate Academy Flops

Truth Wins Out reports today that Porno Pete LaBarbara’s Hate Academy is a complete dud, with the number of attendees barely exceeding the number of scheduled speakers. The Hate Academy, which began Wednesday, it meant to train young aspiring anti-gay bigots on how to more effectively enable the brutalization of LGBT people across America. One of TWO’s spies notes: “It was an exhausting 12-hour day. The speakers were less charismatic than tree stumps. I would rather turn Bill Gates’ vast fortune into a giant mountain of pennies and count them, than endure one more tedious anti-gay seminar.”
