Human Rights: You Keep Using That Phrase…

In a positively Orwellian post at Breitbart.com, Austin Ruse of the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute (C-FAM) bizarrely claims that “human rights groups” are supporting Russia’s authoritarian law banning “gay propaganda.” And by “human rights” he means anti-gay.

This week more than 100 human rights and other groups from around the world signed a joint statement supporting the new Russian law banning gay propaganda aimed at school children.

The signers are “highly concerned about the heavy attacks that the Russian Federation is facing due to its recent Federal Law…that protects innocence and moral formation of children…”

The signers cite the Universal Declaration of Human Rights that the family is the fundamental unit of society and “is entitled to protection by society and State.”

They assert the new Russian law “protects the innocence of children and the basic rights of their parents recognized in international legislation and treaties.”

How exactly does banning gay people from even acknowledging that they’re gay in public protect the “family”? They use the word family in the most Orwellian manner. If a child even meets someone who is gay, that somehow hurts “the family”? What family?

    Yes, we must protect the “innocence and moral development” of children. Child, ignore that man holding hands with the man he loves as the watch the sunset together. Quick, go play Grand Theft Auto before you’re corrupted beyond redemption.

    You’re missing a key point: the subtext of all their “arguments” is that gays aren’t really human. It’s only straight “Christians” who are really human.

    “Ruse”, the name says it all. Fortunately for him, his parents didn’t get cutesy and saddle him with an oxymoronic name like “Clever Ruse”.

    “It’s only straight “Christians” who are really human.”

    Timmy McVeigh, Ted Bundy, Eric Rudolph–those straight “Christians”?

    In other news, archived records PROVE that the Cossacks, Cheka, NKVD and KGB were much like our own KKK and Knights of the White Camellia organizations that defended the rights of the kulaks, jews and other groups that outside agitators were always attempting to use for their own political machinations.

    Of course these “human rights” groups want to deny some people their rights, but hey, they could still be referred to as “human rights” groups…

    …by morons.

    Why, sure! In addition to the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute, the list included the Bryan Fischer Christian Human Rights Committee, the Fred Phelps Human Rights Church of Topeka, the David Barton Human Rights in History Foundation, the Jonathan Hansen World Human Rights Ministries International, the Craig Paul Cobb Human Rights and Survival Compound, the Pat Robertson Human Rights and Gem Recovery Operation…

    I could go on, but you get the picture. Austin Ruse: Was there ever a man more aptly named?

    Breitbart also published an “open letter” from Vlad Putin to the American people. It was supposed to be some kind of “if Putin wrote a letter it would look like this” kind of thing, but of course it didn’t actually say that anywhere in the story, and a lot of conservative sites picked it up as a real letter, along with a conservative person I know.

    This is called fraud, which is what that website is, and the now passed on creator of the site was.

    Apparently the folks at Breitbart think its a “human right” to force their bigoted views on everyone else. That’s nice to know. I guess the people fighting to end segregation in South were guilty of “human rights” violations as well for not letting southern whites force people to discriminate based on skin tone.

    The Russian Federation came under heavy attack today from Gayrightsistan. They suffered heavy casualties all morning from over 5 million snarky Facebook comments and a dozen brazen Queerty posts. Shortly after noon a photoshopped image of Vladimir Putin wearing a rainbow flag and absolutely stunning red pumps was launched from an unidentified location in Towleroad. And we’re just getting word that they are now under heavy bombardment with Zinger missiles which appear to be coming from the vicinity of Comedy Central.

    Over 10,000 Russians are believed to have suffered near-fatal embarrassment.

    “Catholics concerned about the innocence of children ought to be ex-Catholics by now.”

    In fairness there were plenty of Catholics that were shocked by the pedophile priest scandal, and its safe to say that at least some of them were priests.
