Today, I wrap up my series of commentaries on the War on Parents with a closer look at the far-Left radical groups we’ve encountered along the way, and their ultimate aims.
I mentioned the “Transition Closet”, a group in Arkansas pushing the availability of opposite-sex clothing for kids being pushed into transgenderism in schools across the country. Not content with operating at the college level, the group is now going after young children in public schools. The founder of the group supports keeping the activity secret from parents.
Another far-Left group, AMAZE.org, pushes sex education for young adolescents, producing videos some call pornographic.
Its website bears all the hallmarks of a well-funded, well-oiled machine of the Left, starting with a couple dozen staffers. That doesn’t happen by accident. That takes money. The group’s managing partner is Advocates for Youth, another well-oiled machine that pushes wider access to abortion, free menstrual products, free condoms, and gender neutral restrooms. The group has assets of $10 million [p.1] and won’t disclose its donors on its tax forms. [p.24] They also get government grants [p. 9], which means you are paying for some of their activities.
We also encountered after-school Satan Clubs along the way.
They are run by the Satanic Temple which is now bringing lawsuits to try to get its way in the schools. They also litigate to promote abortion as part of their religion, to give Satanic invocations at public meetings, and to remove Christianity from the public square. Overall, they are trying to foment “social change”, a dead giveaway placing them squarely on the Left.
One group I haven’t mentioned yet is the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD). They oppose the new Florida law preventing the early sexualization of children and call for more LGBT content in children’s programming. They are agitating in Hollywood to bring it about. Like the Satanic Temple, this group is up front about working for “cultural change”.
Another gay group, the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus, said last year, “We’ll convert your children….We’re coming for your children.”
I take them at face value, but here’s what you need to understand: This isn’t about transgender rights or the gay agenda. Those are merely weapons to get to where the leaders of these groups want to go: socialism. I’ve documented that ultimate aim in previous commentaries, including the communist theorist who came up with the idea of destroying society with sex and the transgender activists caught on video late last year saying their goal is communism and they are merely using transgenderism to get there.
These leaders are hardcore committed Leftists, first and foremost. Their sexual agendas are for the useful idiots. The real goal is to weaken and destabilize society so Leftist leaders can seize power. The issue is never the issue; the issue is always wealth and power for a tiny elite.
This set of Leftist leaders has been called the ‘Gay Gestapo’ and their methods go beyond sexual indoctrination in schools. They also want to destroy religion by denying tax exemptions to churches that oppose gay marriage. These people are deadly serious and playing for all the marbles. If you want to see society destroyed and a tiny communist elite take over, throw in with them. For the rest of us, take what they say about taking over at face value and respond accordingly.
