Hell Hath No Fury . . .: Are You on the Gay McCarthyist Blacklist, er . . . Pinklist?

By Debbie Schlussel
The trite, but true adage, “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned,” definitely applies to the scorned men who think and act like they’re women.
As I noted several months ago before Proposition 8 won at the ballot box, gays were already harassing and boycotting businesses whose owners contributed to the Prop 8 campaign.
Now, that California voters confirmed that they believe marriage is between one man and one woman, gays are going full steam ahead in their boycott tactics. Some of the same businesses I told you about before on the list. Others are new. There are even blacklists of Hollywood studio execs who gave to Prop 8. The shocker to me is that any Hollywoodites supported Prop 8.


One other thing, in honor of gays, I think in this case, it should be a pinklist, not a blacklist:

After losing on Election Day, some supporters of gay marriage are using economic boycotts and Internet lists to focus ire on the financial backers of Proposition 8.
Some on the receiving end say the tactic amounts to a blacklist, a term that conjures memories of Hollywood’s refusal to hire screenwriters and others identified as communists in the late 1940s and 1950s.
“I just hate being pigeonholed as a hate monger or bigot,” says Robert Hoehn, who contributed $25,000 to the campaign for Prop 8, which amended California’s Constitution to exclude same-sex marriage. “I have friends in the gay community, and I don’t think any of them would say that.”
Hoehn has seen protesters outside his Carlsbad, Calif., car dealerships, his name and business have appeared on websites publicizing donors, and he has received “the most vitriolic kinds of e-mails, letters and phone calls.”
“I want to make it a little hot for these people,” says Fred Karger, a retired Los Angeles political consultant who started the group and website called Californians Against Hate.
Small as well as large donors have felt heat:
* El Coyote, a Mexican restaurant in Los Angeles since 1931, has seen fewer diners and been picketed over a $100 contribution by a manager and member of the owning family. Marjorie Christoffersen told The Los Angeles Times, “I’ve almost had a nervous breakdown.”
* San Diego developer Doug Manchester, who donated $125,000 to put Prop 8 on the ballot, has seen a boycott against hotels he owns, including the Manchester Grand Hyatt on San Diego Bay. Manchester did not return calls seeking comment. Sonja Eddings Brown, spokeswoman for the Protect Marriage coalition, which supports Prop 8, said Manchester’s hotel “has lost several national conventions and conferences.”
* A-1 Self Storage, with 30 locations across California, has also been targeted by Karger’s group. Owner Terry Caster and family members donated $693,000.
Caster did not return calls but has a recording on his phone defending the contribution and Prop 8. “The homosexual community is trying to change something that has been practiced since the start of our great country,” he says, referring to marriage. “I simply exercise my right to support that which I believe in.”
Brown says she has received calls from small business owners in Hollywood and West Hollywood who have lost customers because of their donations. She said she has seen printed lists that name Hollywood studio employees who gave to the cause, an action that “replicates that feel” of blacklists of movie-industry figures who many in Hollywood to this day believe were prevented from earning a living because of their politics.

Ah, the tolerance of the gay community. So much for “diversity.” They lost at the ballot box. They were soundly defeated. And they simply refuse to accept it.
I hope that if you live in California, you will patronize these businesses now in peril. As if our economy isn’t bad enough, gays want to make it worse.

Absolutely right deb! How dare they boycott stores in this economy! Now, if you don’t mind, I have to go back to boycotting stores that don’t say Merry Christmas.

Its relevant to recall here Debbie that in the Torah, the greatest sin for which Sodom and Gomorrah were punished was not for their sexual immorality. It was for their lack of kindness to the strangers in their midst. And in our own day we’re seeing there is a connection between abnormal sexuality and a lack of regard for the humanity and the rights of other people. Human depravity does not limit itself just to the personal. It can and does have consequences that harm real people. That is why homosexuality is morally wrong and nothing should deter us from saying so. The behavior of the gay community towards those who supported Proposition 8 in California demonstrates the timelessness of the Torah’s wisdom about what really happened in the Cities Of The Plain and why G-d was moved enough to wipe them off the face of the earth.

Criminy NormanF, you need to stop watching religious shows on the History Channel. That S&G were destroyed because they were full of bad hosts is new age revisionism. S&G was destroyed becasue of sexual immorality, specifically homosexuality. Jude (who is ignored by the religious no-nothings the HC always uses) makes that clear in verse 7.

Blayne on December 22, 2008 at 1:41 pm

NormanF is right and you are wrong. There are a zillion references for this, but i am going to give just one here:
“The purpose of destroying Sdom was to show the importance of hesed (kindness) in our world. It demonstrated the extent of destruction generated when society lacks this trait.”

i_am_me on December 22, 2008 at 2:01 pm

This is what happens when you have only a part of God’s inspired Word. To destroy a bunch of cities due to inhospitality doesn’t even make sense. God would have destroyed the whole world if that were the case.

Blayne on December 22, 2008 at 2:04 pm

Speaking of gays, go to and vote for Debbie,…not that she cares about these things.
…and I’m sure that Gay Patriot is in a different category than the above.

The marriage issue is nothing but entitlement mentality bait and switch. If the electorate had immediately voted for these cultural changes, the [gay] left would have trotted out some other trumped up inequity. It is mystifying to me that this population continues to need expressions of legitimacy from outside their preferences. PEOPLE, get a civil union, live your lives with style and dignity but get serious about the state of this country and help us to think through ideas that strengthen our security as well as our cultural foundations.

To destroy a bunch of cities due to inhospitality doesn’t even make sense.
Hospitality was seen as a big deal in ancient times. Examples can also be found in the Iliad and the Odyssey, as well as many other texts from that time period.

chitown85 on December 22, 2008 at 3:07 pm

To the ancients, hospitality was regarded as a sign of one’s character. To refuse it to someone who was not an enemy was seen as a grave offense. Needless to say, decent behavior has to be learned. It does not come naturally to human beings.

HOMOSEXUALS are not being denied marriage. They can get married. Their HOMOSEXUAL marriage is not recognized. Just as much the same HOMOSEXUALS can get married to someone of the opposite sex and have that marriage recognized. Also a straight person can’t have a marriage of the same sex recognized. The rules are the same for everyone. The law is applied equally. No we aren’t born gay. They want to use that to state it is a civil right. Homosexual sex is an act not a birth trait. You can’t put your skin color in the closet.
I will definitely frequent businesses that are being boycotted. I wonder if burning a gay flag is a hate crime? Like to burn a few. Yet burning the American flag is free speech.

i fail to see how the folks who were stripped of their civil rights by a ‘tyranny of the majority’ are the opressors in this situation.. and i don’t have a problem with boycotting as a political tool, it’s just not usually very successful.
.. oh and, btw, no gay men that i know “think and act like women’.. what a bizarre stereotype ! c’mon debbie, you’re better than this.

elpolacko on December 22, 2008 at 7:17 pm

There is no “stripping” of their civil rights- in many states (CA especially where prop 8 passed) there are civilunions- legally they give all the same rights and privileges of succession, property rights, and so on that marriage affords. This is a matter of the use of the term “marriage” which has for thousands of years, been a matter of a religious union performed under the pervue of clergy, so thatthe joining would be blessed or acceptable to the Almighty. To have a group of people, who HAVE the same civil rights, under civil functionaries, try to denegrate the term marriage by having it applied to what the scripture considers an “unholy” union is an affront to those who adhere to the religion. So any oppression under those conditions is coming from the secularists against those who hold marriage a sacred union intheir faith. Compound that with the behavior exemplified in California towerd Mormon temples, Catholic churches, and “little old ladies carryig a crucifix in the street” after the passage of prop 8, and I think it elevates itself to the level of hate crimes purpetrated by the gay community.

The vote in California on Prop 8 was the Democratic process in action–just like the one that put Obama in office. The gay community should accept it and get over it. It is what it is and the people have spoken. All this hatred demonstrated towards others who simpy exercised their democratic rights to contribute their money to causes they belive in and vote their beliefs is disgusting.

Yankee Doodle on December 23, 2008 at 11:27 am

    Ok, lets just say the gays deal with the oppression the religous right and the remaining ignorant group of people who oppose them from a book that stems nothing but terrorists. Lets turn the tables for a moment, would you sit back and take it if those same people outlawed your freedom to hate and oppress? I am damn sure you would fight hell to high water for your freedom to hate back.

A comment from europe.
Seems strange to me that in a democratic country such as the US and in California the silent majority have finally spoken and now the losers of that same vote are wanting to BLACKMAIL & intimidate anyone and everyone who is opposed to their beliefs to get their own way.
If I were to blackist gays in my business (private hotel) or indeed post anti gay messages on my business website and say gays were not welcome at my hotel I am quite sure that I would have law suits filed quicker than you could blink an eye. However it is ok for the other side to do….would someone explain why this is the case?

Bailout recipients Fannie, Freddie gave $ to ‘gay’ groups ! !!! ?????
The group Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays and Gays (PFOX) is outraged that even though government-backed mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac went broke and received a federal bailout, they still managed to give thousands of dollars this year to homosexual activist groups.
PFOX executive director Regina Griggs says Freddie Mac shelled out $65,000 over the past two years to the Human Rights Campaign to help homosexual couples adopt children. The Freddie Mac Foundation has given more than $125,000 to homosexual activist groups over the last three years, and the Fannie Mae Foundation has given $80,000 to such groups in the past decade.
Shawn Flaherty, a spokeswoman for Freddie Mac, told PFOX that she was not sure whether the ex-“gay” group would meet grant guidelines. However, Griggs says Flaherty noted the Foundation focuses on three priorities — stable homes, foster care and adoption, and youth development.
Gift money
“What could be more important than supporting marriage as a man and one woman, adoption by heterosexual couples, and how about telling youth the truth — you’re not born that way [homosexual], that change is possible?” she wonders. “It was interesting because her other comment was that ‘the grants have not focused on the gay community. It’s a piece of it.’ That’s my tax dollars silencing me, silencing our organizations, coming after [Christian non-profits]. This is unbelievable.”
Griggs believes it is no coincidence that openly homosexual Congressman Barney Frank (D-Massachusetts) chairs the House committee that provides oversight of Fannie and Freddie, and Frank has received more than $40,000 in campaign contributions from Fannie and Freddie since 1989. Frank’s former boyfriend, Herb Moses, was an executive at Fannie Mae from 1981-1989.
