Canada Forces Daniel Garcia To Follow Lesbian Sister Brenda To Their Violent Fates In Mexico

Daniel Garcia, the Mexican teen who arrived in Canada three years ago with his lesbian sister to escape anti-gay torment, was today deported back to Mexico, following his sister Brenda's removal on Monday. The Garcias arrived in 2007 and filed for refugee status, saying Brenda, now 30, had been attacked for being a lesbian and her partner shot to death; having filed an emergency request for a stay of his deportation, Daniel says his mother has already received threats that he too would be targeted, even killed, if he returned home. Daniel, now 18, has been held in a detention center since last week after he was arrested for supposedly not filing a change of address notice with immigration officials, and failing to appear at a hearing. With immigration officials believing neither Daniel or Brenda faced real danger, today she put him on a plane back to Mexico City.

Serbian Hate Leader Mladen Obradovic Faces Charges Over Belgrade’s Violent Gay Pride Parade

Mladen Obradovic, the fanatical Serbian bigot who leads the the "ultranationalist" group Obraz, will face charges of inciting violence during Belgrade's Oct. 10 gay pride parade, where more than 150 people — mostly police, but also revelers and spectators — were injured. Obradovic and two other Obraz members, who led an estimated 6,000 anti-gay protesters, were indicted just before Christmas and face 12-year prison sentences. Last year Obradovic successfully got Belgrade's pride parade canceled by intimidating organizers so much police said they could not guarantee The Gays' safety.

How Is Chile’s Government Cracking Down On Domestic Abuse? By Calling Violent Husbands ‘Faggots’

A federal Chilean public awareness campaign to fight domestic violence has a wonderful way of convincing macho men not to beat their wives: call them faggots. How creative!

TX: GOP congressional candidate: violent overthrow of government is ‘on the table’

Holy mother of dog, this is the Texas GOP in 2010. This guy is referred to as “Constitutionalist Pastor” Stephen Broden. (Dallas Morning News):

Republican congressional candidate Stephen Broden stunned his party Thursday, saying he would not rule out violent overthrow of the government if elections did not produce a change in leadership.

In a rambling exchange during a TV interview, Broden, a South Dallas pastor, said a violent uprising “is not the first option,” but it is “on the table.” That drew a quick denunciation from the head of the Dallas County GOP, who called the remarks “inappropriate.”

Broden, a first-time candidate, is challenging veteran incumbent Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson in Dallas’ heavily Democratic 30th Congressional District. Johnson’s campaign declined to comment on Broden.

In the interview, Brad Watson, political reporter for WFAA-TV (Channel 8), asked Broden about a tea party event last year in Fort Worth in which he described the nation’s government as tyrannical.

“We have a constitutional remedy,” Broden said then. “And the Framers say if that don’t work, revolution.”

I love the soft sell response by the county chair — “inappropriate” LOLOLOL. WTF!?  Bring on the crazeee…

Also in June 2009, Broden compared those governing the United States to Nazi Germany.


“Let me tell you that is something that happened in Germany when the Jews were walking into the furnaces and they didn’t even try to stop or fight their way. They walked in because they did not believe that this was happening. They didn’t believe that humanity could be so evil. I am submitting to you tonight that is where America is right now. They are our enemies and we must resist them.”

News 8 wanted to know if Broden was trying to say that Barack Obama is like Adolph Hitler. “No I am not,” he said Thursday.

SERBIA: Riot Police Clash With Violent Anti-Gay Protesters At Belgrade Pride

Serbian riot battled hundreds of neo-Nazi anti-gay rioters at Belgrade Pride today, fighting back against hurled Molotov cocktails with stun grenades. Over 100 injuries were reported and almost 200 rioters were arrested.

Thousands of police officers sealed off the streets in the capital where the march took place, repeatedly clashing at several locations with rioters who were trying to burst through security cordons. Several parked cars were set on fire or damaged, shop windows were broken, garbage containers were overturned and streets signs destroyed. Several shops were looted before police restored peace late afternoon. The anti-gay rioters also fired shots and threw Molotov cocktails at the headquarters of the ruling pro-Western Democratic Party, setting the garage of the building on fire. The state TV building and other political parties headquarters were also attacked, with many of the house windows shattered by stones. The protesters, chanting “death to homosexuals!” hurled bricks, stones, glass bottles and stun grenades at riot police. Police responded by firing tear gas and deploying armored vehicles to disperse the charging protesters in the heart of the capital even after the brief pride march ended.

The president of Serbia denounced the attacks, saying, “Serbia will guarantee human rights for all its citizens, regardless of the differences among them, and no attempts to revoke these freedoms with violence will be allowed.” Serbia’s Minister of Justice said that those arrested face up to eight years in prison. Early reports don’t indicate whether any of Belgrade Pride’s attendees were injured. Last year’s pride parade was canceled over the threat of violence.

Bryan Fischer’s new bigot eruption: Muslims are violent, dangerous, & stupid because of inbreeding

Remember that Bryan Fischer works for a “Christian” organization called the American Family Association. It is based in Tupelo, Mississippi. He has made it clear that his tolerance for difference fails to exist when it comes to LGBT Americans, and now he’s unleashed a level of public religious bigotry toward Muslims that boggles the mind.

The level of dehumanization is ghastly and foments the spread of a vile, narrow image of America to the rest of the world. WWJD, Bryan? (via Right Wing Watch):

Lowered intellectual capacity is another devastating consequence of Muslim marriage patterns. According to Sennels, research shows that children of consanguinous marriages lose 10-16 points off their IQ and that social abilities develop much slower in inbred babies.

The risk of having an IQ lower than 70, the official demarcation for being classified as “retarded,” increases by an astonishing 400 percent among children of cousin marriages.

In Denmark, non-Western immigrants are more than 300 percent more likely to fail the intelligence test required for entrance into the Danish army.

Sennels says that “the ability to enjoy and produce knowledge and abstract thinking is simply lower in the Islamic world.” He points out that the Arab world translates just 330 books every year, about 20% of what Greece alone does.

In the last 1,200 years years of Islam, just 100,000 books have been translated into Arabic, about what Spain does in a single year. Seven out of 10 Turks have never even read a book.

Sennels points out the difficulties this creates for Muslims seeking to succeed in the West. “A lower IQ, together with a religion that denounces critical thinking, surely makes it harder for many Muslims to have success in our high-tech knowledge societies.”

Only nine Muslims have every won the Nobel Prize, and five of those were for the “Peace Prize.” According to Nature magazine, Muslim countries produce just 10 percent of the world average when it comes to scientific research (measured by articles per million inhabitants).

In Denmark, Sennels’ native country, Muslim children are grossly overrepresented among children with special needs. One-third of the budget for Danish schools is consumed by special education, and anywhere from 51% to 70% of retarded children with physical handicaps in Copenhagen have an immigrant background.

Learning ability is severely affected as well. Studies indicated that 64% of school children with Arabic parents are still illiterate after 10 years in the Danish school system. The immigrant drop-out rate in Danish high schools is twice that of the native-born.

Mental illness is also a product. The closer the blood relative, the higher the risk of schizophrenic illness. The increased risk of insanity may explain why more than 40% of the patients in Denmark’s biggest ward for clinically insane criminals have an immigrant background.

The U.S. is not immune. According to Sennels, “One study based on 300,000 Americans shows that the majority of Muslims in the USA have a lower income, are less educated, and have worse jobs than the population as a whole.”

Bottom line: Islam is not simply a benign and morally equivalent alternative to the Judeo-Christian tradition. As Sennels points out, the first and biggest victims of Islam are Muslims. Simple Christian compassion for Muslims and a common-sense desire to protect Western civilization from the ravages of Islam dictate a vigorous opposition to the spread of this dark and dangerous religion. These stark realities must be taken into account when we establish public polices dealing with immigration from Muslim countries and the building of mosques in the U.S.

Let’s hope America wakes up before a blind naivete about the reality of Islam destroys what remains of our Christian culture and our domestic tranquility.

This is complete and utter bullsh*t. What does Islam have to do with inbreeding? The United States has a good portion of its population in various regions — where Christianity in one form or another — that also had inbreeding. And the point is? How is the religious practic itself responsible for that? And what about the inbreeding of the ruling classes in Europe? How does that fit into this ridiculous paradigm?

The fact that the American Family Association would endorse and publish Fischer’s crap only confirms that junk science is a diet that this organization — and others like it — must consume and regurgitate into the public discourse. None of these people can or should be taken seriously or deserve time on the airwaves to gin up the anti-Islam irrational fervor that has taken over a slice of the public. That the AFA sees a benefit from going down this path after losing ground fighting The Homosexual Agenda shows how sick and craven Fischer and the Wildmon’s are.

UPDATE: A wealth of information about Bryan Fischer and his anti-gay, bigoted activities in Idaho is at independent journalist Jody May-Chang’s “The Fischer Files.”

Since leaving Idaho in mid 2009, Fischer has been catapulted into the national spotlight by ratcheting up his racist and homophobic hate propaganda on his American Family Association radio show and blog.

Had it not been for a complacent, lazy and negligent Idaho news media, perhaps Fischer would not now be the national poster boy for anti-Muslim racism, criminalizing gays and an embarrassment to Idahoans.

Sharron Angle On The Violent Overthrow Of The Government: Anything Is Possible

Asked about her warning earlier this year that a “Second Amendment solution” may result if the teabaggers don’t get their way, Sharron Angle told a reporter that she hopes it doesn’t come to that, “but anything is possible, I suppose.”

Pat Robertson’s CBN correspondent: ‘Gay subculture – one of the most violent subcultures out there’

This one is mind-blowing, with a hat tip to Blender Sebastian.

I thought you might be interested in a blog posting by Christian Broadcasting Network war correspondent Chuck Holton, in which he tells Pat Robertson’s viewers why the military should keep DADT and why “homosexuals, by their own choices, disqualify themselves from military service” — and that “for the pentagon to be even considering allowing them to serve openly only shows an appalling lack of common sense on the part of our elected leaders and military brass”.

It’s no lie. Pat’s correspondent seems strangely preoccupied with a “gay subculture” that he seems to know a lot about that I’m unaware of. From his “Boots on the Ground” report…read and pick this shite apart.

1. The military is, by necessity, an environment where members are encouraged to be strong and healthy. The military strongly discourages smoking these days, because anything that hurts a soldier’s health ultimately makes him a liability to his unit. The homosexual lifestyle has been proven to lower a man’s life expectancy by as much as 20 years – why would we encourage this, then?

2. The Gay subculture is one of the most violent subcultures out there. Government studies show gays are 20 times more likely to be abusive or abused in their personal relationships. This reflects an inherent emotional instability that is not conducive to good order or discipline.

3. Giving Blood: US FDA regulations exclude “men who have had sex with another man even once since 1977″ from giving blood at blood banks. In combat, any one of your buddies might be called upon to donate their blood to keep you alive if you get wounded. Gays should never donate blood. End of story.

4. Suicide: The military is already having problems with troop suicides these days. Gays commit suicide, or attempt it, six times more often than heterosexuals. Is this the kind of American we want to entrust with a weapon?

Bottom line: Homosexuals, by their own choices, disqualify themselves from military service. For the pentagon to be even considering allowing them to serve openly only shows an appalling lack of common sense on the part of our elected leaders and military brass.
