The REAL reason lesbians and gays on the Left support amnesty

by CynthiaYockey on August 19, 2010

Dear Mark Koenig drew my attention to a post at Newsreal aimed at smearing gays and lesbians as supporting amnesty for illegal aliens as their contribution to the Left’s conspiracy to destroy the U.S. as a capitalistic, Constitutional democratic republic and make it a totalitarian Communistic state — which is, of course, MUCH worse than the conspiracy of social conservatives on the Right to destroy the U.S. as a capitalistic, Constitutional democratic republic and make it a totalitarian theocratic state.

One of the reasons I became a fiscal conservative and Republican in the fall of 2008 was to fight amnesty, open borders and illegal immigration. I lived many years in the part of Silver Spring, Maryland, most overwhelmed by illegal immigration from Latin, Asian, African and Muslim countries and I learned first-hand that illegals are a boiling cauldron of hatreds and that the majority come from cultures and religions that regard women as property and tell them it is their duty to kill lesbians and gays. Practically every other conservative in the U.S. is a lily-livered squish on illegal immigration in comparison to me.

However, I want to explain the real reason that lesbians and gays on the Left support amnesty — it is a noble one and not the one posited at Newsreal. It has to do with the Left’s Rainbow Coalition, which lesbians and gays don’t realize was a con to get their money, labor and power.

Gays, Jews and women were thrown out of the Right by social conservatives for being uppity and demanding anti-Biblical equality. Blacks and Latins/illegal immigrants were seduced to the Left by promises of easy money and easy power: welfare, affirmative action and amnesty. That’s the Left’s Rainbow Coalition.

In the 1970’s and 1980’s, the Rainbow Coalition was sold to gays, Jews, women, black and Latins/illegals as a one-for-all, all-for-one deal where we were all supposed to support each group’s civil rights equality, although blacks, being more equal, became the priority and demanded control of when the other groups would be allowed reciprocity from blacks in support of their own civil rights. Sometime in the 1990’s, black race hustlers stopped talking about the Rainbow Coalition and stopped acknowledging the claims of any other group to equality.

However, because the lesbian and gay communities actually ARE a Rainbow Coalition, since our community really IS a mix of races, ethnicities, nationalities, sexes, disabilities, sexual orientations and religions, this betrayal of the ideal of reciprocity for the equality and civil rights of other groups by blacks and their secession from the Rainbow Coalition is something that the lesbian and gay communities on the Left just can’t comprehend and don’t accept. THAT is why the lesbian and gay communities support amnesty — because the Latin/Asian/African/illegal immigrants groups all are clamoring for it and calling it hateful and discriminatory to demand that every single immigrant obey our immigration laws — so the lesbian and gay communities are honoring their Rainbow Coalition ideal of reciprocity. It IS bizarre that gays and lesbians do this the most for the groups that hate us proudly and openly — blacks, the Latin/Asian/African/illegal immigrants groups, and Muslims — nevertheless, gays and lesbians really do believe that their support will some day be reciprocated. So — supporting amnesty is a matter of honor and badly misplaced faith in the honor and intentions of their erstwhile fellows in the Rainbow Coalition.

However, in a weird way, the toxic, deranged and deceitful conflation of advocates for gay equality and the open borders/amnesty movement at Newsreal represents a heartening watershed in the efforts of social conservatives to demonize gay people since it is quite the promotion from being damned — just on the basis of being, without ever having committed any act of wrong-doing — as worse than murderers, child molesters, people who have sex with animals, and so on. The fact that those deranged accusations aren’t selling as well any more so that social conservatives must scramble for new deceptions to demonize lesbians and gays is most encouraging.

    “It IS bizarre that gays and lesbians do this the most for the groups that hate us proudly and openly — blacks, the Latin/Asian/African/illegal immigrants groups, and Muslims — nevertheless, gays and lesbians really do believe that their support will some day be reciprocated.”

    I’m not so sure it’s an LGBT thing. I think it’s more of a leftist thing – with a heavy dose of what the more obnoxious feminists would call “privilege”. It’s just more of a mind frak when it comes to the rainbow coalition, who have so much more to lose.

    There’s a tendency with the white left to completely disregard what people from non white, non first world and/or non Judeo-Christian cultures actually *say* about things, or to assume that they know better than the people themselves. With Islam, this manifests itself in an asinine declaration that, having – MAYBE – taken a course in Islam at college, they know more than fluent Arabic speakers who have made it their lives’ study. It’s a religion of peace, don’cha know.

    With the illegals, there’s an assumption that they’ll assimilate and be “civilized”, so it doesn’t matter. That they don’t really mean what they say, or it’s their helpless reaction to poverty and other peoples’ bigotry. Or even that they have a point and we are less moral than they. (The question of why they came if that’s the case is never answered.) Then there’s the heirarchy, where race trumps everything – something seen in the relegation of women’s rights and issues in the civil rights movement. The idea of taking these groups at their word, as adults who are able to make up their minds, has not sunk in.

      Just a clarification: I’m not bashing Teh Gheys, here, or agreeing with your man at the link. It’s a bit like the “adultery and promiscuity” card – straight people do it too, even more. I’m simply pointing out the similarities between and within the groups.

      The main difference between straight leftists and their LGBT counterparts is that the LGBTs are told that they must wait in line – same as Asian and Indian Americans in the race heirarchy. They’re also told that there is an equivalence between open borders and marriage equality, and objecting to the former is akin to not wanting same sex marriage.

        Liz,

        Thank you for your insights — yes, it is a Leftist thing. The best explanations I know of are by Eric Hoffer, author of The True Believer, and Jamie Glazov, author of United in Hate, which applies Hoffer’s observations to our contemporary world.

        Regarding waiting in line, it looks to me like every other group is thundering past lesbians and gays and then turning on them viciously. One indicator is the representations of Muslims and other new immigrants vs. lesbians and gays on TV shows. Why can’t Rizzoli — played by Angie Harmon in “Rizzoli and Isles” — be a lesbian instead of a straight tom boy? Why do “NCIS” and “Bones” scrape and bow before Islam, while making lesbians and gays only victims or villains? Why did “Bones” make one character’s lesbianism a passing thing and marry her to the most irritating male character? Where are the gay and lesbian main characters, or even sidekicks? It’s not just the Democrat-controlled Congress and White House using and abusing gay people and then telling them to wait in line forever — it’s Hollywood, too. (That’s not totally relevant to your comment, Liz, but apparently I had that loaded and ready to go.)

    Suckers.

    It is a very honorable thing to stick to your given word, but fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

    There’s a tendency with the white left to completely disregard what people from non white, non first world and/or non Judeo-Christian cultures actually *say* about things, or to assume that they know better than the people themselves.

    You could amend that to “completely disregard what anyone not a white leftist actually *say*” and still be accurate. From my point of view, that’s perhaps equal parts of naivete and arrogance: they actually believe that they can transform these new immigrants into being leftists like themselves. Barring that, they can be co-opted and put into a “group” and lead by leftist leaning leader.

    If that doesn’t work out, there’s always divide and conquer. And they share a goal with the radical imams of the world: to fundamentally change the nature of the USofA.

    Why did “Bones” make one character’s lesbianism a passing thing and marry her to the most irritating male character?

    Agree with Hodges being the most irritating character on that show.

    As for Angela? the way she’s been played (that I’ve seen but I haven’t seen the entire series) if you’re straight, lesbian, bi, male, female, trans, whatever if you’re attractive to her, she’d probably find a way to at least make a play for you. I think the kids now-a-days would call her a playa.

      I R A Darth Aggie,

      How apt is it that Hodges is the Leftist conspiracy theorist always fighting The Power, yet he also is far-and-away the wealthiest character on the show as heir to an enormous family fortune?
