And The Hate Goes On - Against LGBT War Dead

On May 1st Granny Ann posted cant-sink-much-lower-than-this about North Carolina Representative Virginia Foxx speaking against the hate crimes bill named after Matthew Shepard. What she had to say was very low indeed.

Farnsworth of One Pissed Off Vet has published a post about a person named "Bill" whose scurrilous statements and action probably qualifies as even lower than that of Rep. Virginia Foxx. "Bill" freely defames veterans who support LGBT veterans as sodomites and dishonorably discharged but also includes Pedophiles in naming the sexual orientation of the LGBT (emphasis mine) ; he is such a cowardly liar that he fails to identify himself except by the one word "Bill". Apparently he does not have the courage of his hateful conviction that it is a "desecration" to have those LGBT military personnel who gave their lives for their country given a memorial , but also that their vet suppporters were dishonorably discharged.

Farnsworth, a Vietnam Veteran, speaks eloquently about this hater in his blog post
Arizona Memorial to LGBT Veterans a Desecration? published Wednesday, May 06, 2009, in which Farnsworth said, "Which I thought was a terrific way to honor the sacrifice of those soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines who had given their lives for a country that wasn't ready to accept them even though they were willing to sacrifice themselves for it."
............................
Excerpts of "Bill's" hate rant: (emphasis mine)
"National cemeteries were established as national shrines in tribute to the gallant dead who have served in the Armed Forces of the United States of America." [WA:Does sexual orientation have anything to do with the gallantry of those who died for their country?]

"In 2001 a group of Dishonorably discharged sodomites the Arizona Rainbow Veterans with the help of corrupt Government officials in direct violation of The National Cemetery Regulations Title 36 and NPS 61 erected a Memorial to all gay, lesbian, Pedophile, bisexual and trans-gender veterans. This repugnant horror now sits on sacred ground along Purple heart drive in founders plaza only yards from the original flagpole from the main deck of the battleship Arizona were 1,177 men died in action on Dec 7th 1941." [WA: And how does this hate spewer know whether or not any of the Arizona's crew were GBT's? Do our heroic war dead bear bias against those comrades who served and died with them? ]

"Demand the immediate removal of the Gay, Lesbian, Pedophile, Bisexual,and Trans gender monument. The cemetery should be used to honor the dead not glorify or even mention someones sexual practices. What's next a monument for those that practice bestiality, fecalphilia, necrophilia?" [WA: This statement alone reveals the depth of "Bill's" filthy, depraved mind set of hate]

End of excerpt.
..........................
LGBT Memorial
Thanks to the efforts of the Arizona Rainbow Veterans, the first memorial that includes gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered veterans has been placed in a National Cemetery. The officials in the National Cemetery Association accepted the design and authorized the donation of this memorial for GLBT Veterans of the US Armed Forces. This memorial is now located in the National Cemetery in Phoenix, Arizona. The boulder-shaped monument of rainbow granite bears the original GLBVA logo. Dedication of the monument took place on Veterans' Day, 11 November, 2000.

Good post Farnsworth. You too, Worried.

I see that depraved pervert "Bill" lumps pedophiles in with Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals and Transgenders. He's either stupid or ignorant or he'd know that statistically the majority of pedophiles are HETEROSEXUALS !

He must be stupid. Ignorance can be cured by education; there's nothing that can be done to remedy stupidity.

Two great posts by two great writers.I'm at a loss to explain, or even try to understand, the wrong wing's absolute hatred of this particular group. Perhaps because so many of them are qualified for membership?

Some "experts" claim many homophobes are suppressed homosexuals. Maybe so. People's sex lives should be a private matter, and who gives a damn what consenting ADULTS do in private? I am not interested in peeking into other people's bedrooms! How in hell does anybody's private sexual orientation interfere with doing their public jobs or fighting for their country?
