In the wee hours of June 12, a lone American gunman with a Muslim name on a mission to destroy gays entered the Pulse gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, and left 50 people dead and 53 wounded. It is the worst mass shooting in U.S. history.
This is a wake-up call for leftist gays and lesbians in the month that is the anniversary of the 1969 Stonewall riots, triggered by a police raid that was the last straw for patrons of the gay bar, the Stonewall Inn, in Greenwich Village. Gays stood up, and fought back. The Stonewall riots are considered the watershed event that inspired the modern gay equality movement.
Already the usual progressive voices are working hard to suppress awareness of the teachings of Islam as the shooter’s motive and to call for confiscating guns from responsible gun owners. But the fact is that killing gays is bedrock Islam: “With homosexuals, it’s the same,” he said. “Out of compassion, let’s get rid of [kill] them now.”
And the truth is that gun-free zones are the most powerful magnets for mass shootings.
To fight back this time, progressive lesbians and gays need conservative lesbians and gays like me to show them why and how.
I’ve spent most of the last 32 years providing end-of-life care for my late life partner, my best friend in the 1990s, my mother, my foster sister, and my father. The death rate for longterm caregivers is 1 in 3, rising to 2 in 3 around age 67. I’m 62. So I’m used to doing a dangerous job.
Now that my father has died, I must create a career for myself. I’ve chosen being an author, blogger, and activist with the primary purpose of exposing the lies of the transsexual movement and stopping their aggressions on the rights of girls, women, and the definition of what it is to be female. I also will be writing about gays and Islam, illegal immigration, and the Second Amendment (I earned the Jr. NRA rank of Expert Sharpshooter in the 1960s). But I have a problem. I will be throwing stones from behind glass doors.
This mass shooting of gays for being gay has convinced me that I don’t have the time to earn the money to replace the glass doors of my new home with steel ones. I had to get the double doors of my father’s home replaced. It’s more money than I can come up with in a reasonable time. sdTo be safe, I need to ask for help. So I have created a GoFundMe campaign to replace my doors. If this mass shooting has filled you with a desire to do something positive, please donate to make it safer for me to write and speak up. Thank you.
