Your “friend and mine,” Peter LaBarbera has returned to the tactic that has made him a controversial laughing stock in pro and anti-lgbt circles.
He is back to posting risque pictures of Folsom Street Fair in San Francisco. Now while I won't repost the picture, I will post his explanation:
The cities with large homosexual populations, and which advertise themselves as “gay’ meccas, are the most perverse in the world. San Francisco is an example. Deviance begets deviance, pushing “tolerance” to preposterous extremes. Only the committed, and corrupted, social liberal sees this as acceptable. A couple of years ago when I and others went to observe Folsom and protest the public depravities, we were struck by how straight liberals came to accept these hideous “fairs” in the name of tolerance. One reporter, who told me she had been raised in a Christian home, acted as if we outsiders who were condemning the public lewdness were more suspect than the debauched behavior itself. (I doubt her mother would agree.) God does indeed give people over to a reprobate, depraved mind – and it is only through the inestimable grace of God that some men and women once lost in the twisted world of Gays Gone Wild (and its advocacy) leave it and return to sanity. — Peter LaBarbera, www.aftah.org
The photo below was taken by an Americans For Truth reporter who attended the annual Folsom Street Fair in San Francisco on Sunday, September 25, 2010. It confirms that public sex continues at the devent sex “fair” despite past pledges by fair organizers and the city to stop public nudity and open sex in the streets (following exposes by AFTAH and others in previous years). Children were photographed attending this event.
In the (redacted) center of the photo, a naked man is standing on the ground performing oral sex on another naked man, who is standing on the stage of a booth sponsored by ‘Steamworks,’ a local bathhouse (anonymous homosexual sex club). Behind him (at left), another barely-clad man grabs the genitals of a fellow “fair”-goer at Folsom
I can forgive LaBarbera for the inaccurate claim about what happens in cities with “large homosexual populations” and I won't be petty as to criticize the fact that he can't spell “deviant” (goodness knows he has used it a lot to describe the lgbt community) because I am “thrilled” that the “Porno Pete” side of his personality has returned.
For those who are not in the know, LaBarbera is famous (or infamous) for attending subcultural events like Folsom Street Fair, taking pictures of gay men in questionable activity (while making sure to ignore the heterosexuals engaging in the same activity) and posting them on his Americans for Truth webpage along with descriptions about what exactly the men were doing in the picture and at times, relating how long it took them to do said activity.
And even when the pictures show no risque activity at all, we can always count on Porno Pete to manipulate them to imply that they do, like he did in May during a tirade against Progressive Insurance for their pro-lgbt support.
He would like to think that what he does is an attack on Democrat Nancy Pelosi and the lgbt community at large. But his activity has been the subject of much criticism in religious right circles and derision in lgbt circles.
And it's beginning to remind me of some cheesy, but enjoyable television movie I recently saw. A prim and proper woman is possessed by an alternate personality which would force her to dress in black, seek out men, and kill them.
Oh come on. Can't you just see it? LaBarbera spends the entire year pretending to be an upstanding “pro-family” activist but every time Folsom Street Fair rolls around, the voices in his head start to talk to him. He tries hard to ignore them, but they become louder and louder until they overcome his will.
Under their spell, he enters a secret chamber in his house (paid for no doubt by his years of dubious “anti-gay activism) where in a closet is a complete leather outfit equipped with a secret camera and a pair of butt-less chaps.
He puts on the outfit and stares at himself in the full length mirror that sits in the middle of his secret chamber.
Peter LaBarbera, the proud “pro-family” activist is gone and in his place is Porno Pete, the radical, extreme anti-gay activist who takes no prisoners, but lots of pictures.
We knew the music video for Pink's "Raise Your Glass" would feature same-sex couples. What I didn't know is that Katy Perry's "Firework" would beat her to the self empowering trend (see: Christina Aguilera's "Beautiful"), where society's cast offs (the fats! the gays! the nerds!) are told to celebrate themselves: "So raise your glass if you are wrong / In all the right ways / All my underdogs." Messages of empowerment tied to catchy hooks? I'm in! Though with her line about "dirty little freaks," me thinks she doth Lady Gaga "little monsters" too much.
