Times of Israel Celebrates Jewish Role in LGBT Civil Rights Movement

The people groups like the Anti-Defamation League and Southern Poverty Law Center call “anti-Semites” are often accused of promoting “conspiracy theories”, “tropes”, and “stereotypes” about Jews and their dominate role in promoting and leading various subversive social and cultural movements, including the promotion and normalization of pornographytattoostransgenderism, homosexuality and sexual deviancy more generally, among other movements.

In reality, “anti-Semites” are just pointing out easily observable and provable facts about Jews and their subversive, anti-Christian, anti-Western cultural inclinations.

And they have been doing so for a while.

Indeed, radical Jewish activists, who are deeply influenced by their Jewish background and ethnicity as Dr. Kevin MacDonald so ably demonstrated in his masterpiece Culture of Critique, have been leading champions of all of the degenerate and entirely subversive movements and cultural norms mentioned above. Incredibly, Jewish news outlets and activist organizations often openly and proudly report on these facts, as The Times of Israel recently did in regard to the Jewish role in the so-called “civil rights” struggle for the LGBT community.

Apparently, June is LGBT Pride Month:

The LGBT “civil rights” movement was not so much about ensuring the “rights” of LGBT individuals as it was about openly celebrating and elevating the degenerate LGBT lifestyle. Now, you’d be considered a “Neo-Nazi” if you criticize, even slightly, any aspect of the LGBT agenda.

Maybe it should have been obvious...

In an incredibly revealing article published by The Times of Israel, radical Jewish activists are proven to have played a central role in the overall movement, which is commonly accepted to have been majorly influenced by the Stonewall riots, a series of violent clashes between New York City police and LGBT activists in Greenwich Village in the heart of Manhattan. The riots began on June 28, 1969, and this year marks the 50th anniversary of the iconic clashes.

At first glance Ross Bleckner’s “Double Portrait (Gay Flag)” might be viewed simply as a pop-culture tribute to the rainbow flag symbolic of the gay rights movement.

But a closer inspection of the painting reveals a raised Star of David and it becomes clear — the nine-foot by three-foot canvas is really an exploration of the artist’s overlapping gay and Jewish identities.

For the past year, as part of the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising, the Jewish Museum’s “Scenes from the Collection” has displayed works highlighting themes of gender and identity. Through these canvases it hopes visitors will further explore the role Jewish people, institutions and art played in the LGBTQ civil rights movement

The museum is one of several Jewish institutions, including the Center for Jewish History, the American Jewish Historical Society and the Museum of Jewish Heritage, participating in the nonprofit Stonewall 50 Consortium. The consortium provides the framework for commemorations and celebrations of the watershed event.

“Jews have always been involved in social justice in US and gay Jews and allies have been key players in the movement,” said Eric Marcus, the consortium’s founder and chair.

Among those instrumental in supporting LGBTQ rights were people such as Pauline Phillips, who wrote the advice column Dear Abby, and famed writer Larry Kramer, who co-founded the nonprofits Gay Mens Health Crisis and Act Up. There was also Jeanne Manford, who founded PFLAG, an organization for parents of homosexual children, and her son, Morty, who became an activist after he was brutally beaten in 1972. […]

A prolific author as well as founder and host of the podcast Making Gay History, Marcus said many might not realize just how many Jewish people were involved in the early years of the movement. […]

It goes without saying that individual Jews and Jewish organizations continue to play a leading role in the LGBT movement. Longtime American politician and current Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden stated years ago that Jews “drove gay marriage changes” in the U.S., a fact Jewish news outlets like YNet News, an Israeli news source, reported on at the time. Biden was of course celebrating this fact, not condemning it or criticizing it as “anti-Semites” often do, as he and virtually all Democrats are fully supportive of the degenerate, anti-Christian, anti-family LGBT agenda.

I highlight these facts not because I “hate” individuals identified with the LGBT movement. I judge people, regardless of their race, ethnicity, sexual orientation or anything else, based on their actions, work ethic, and disposition. I highlight these facts to demonstrate that the LGBT movement has largely been led by radical Jewish activists who are profoundly influenced by their Jewish identity and desire to fundamentally transform traditional Western societies. And Jews and Jewish news outlets openly admit and even boast about these facts.
