Bolsheviks â€˜Gay Prideâ€™ Disaster and its Lesson for America
By: Linda Kimball
By its nature, Christianity is both a patriarchal and hierarchal religious and philosophical worldview. Since it teaches that mankind is â€˜fallenâ€™ (has a sinful nature which is the source of evil) it requires as a consequence, that moral constraints (social taboos) be placed on manâ€™s sin-nature to encourage him not to act upon sinful urges, which always eventually lead to suffering and evil. The seven great sins are: pride (self-love), envy, wrath, gluttony, lust, sloth, and greed–the source of all manmade social ills and suffering. Moral constraint builds self-discipline. A society in which self-discipline is viewed as a virtue is a society that has high social standards, among which is honesty, reliability, fidelity, loyalty, trustworthiness, efficiency, etc. This is a dynamic, productive society that values achievement and good work ethics.
While all men are sinners, the majority of mankind can and will, accept moral constraints. However, into every generation are born some who absolutely will not. Even as children, these Cain-like individuals will be rebellious, contemptuous, spiteful, and hateful towards authority and moral constraints, which theyâ€™ll view as impositions upon their absolute sovereignty. As adults, theyâ€™ll see it as their mission in life to subvert and tear down all moral restraints and institutions that stand between themselves and their insatiable egos and base appetites. The working principle of this sort of person is: â€œI am, therefore I am entitled.â€
After the collapse of the Roman Empire in 476 AD, Christianity grew and spread rapidly across Western Europe and into Eastern Europe. Western Europe eventually became known as Christendom.
In 1700, a group of Christendom Cainâ€™s calling themselves â€œfreethinkersâ€ had begun agitating against God, the Christian church, and moral constraints. In 1708, Jonathan Swift, famous for his acerbic satire, skewered freethinkers and the â€˜social advantagesâ€™ they saw in the abolition of Christianity: â€œI appeal to theâ€¦polite freethinker, whether in the pursuit of gratifyingâ€¦passion, he hath not always felt a wonderful incitement by reflecting it was a thing forbiddenâ€¦It isâ€¦proposed as a great advantage to the public that if weâ€¦discardâ€¦the Gospel, all religion will be banished forever, and consequently those grievous prejudices of education, which under the names of virtue, conscience, honour, justice, and the likeâ€¦so apt to disturb the peace of human minds (and) so hard to be eradicated by right reason or freethinking, sometimes during the whole course of our lives.â€ Christianity is hateful because by â€œlaying restraints on human nature (it is) the great enemy of the freedom of thought and action. â€œ (Gulliverâ€™s Travels and Other Writings, Jonathan Swift, pp 449-454)
By 1825, animus against God, Christianity, and moral constraints began to be processed by wayward Enlightenment thinkers such as Henri de Saint Simon and Auguste Comte into a system of philosophy and warped morality. Saint Simon systematized rejection of God, religion, and morality into socialism, while Comte enshrined love of self in his â€œReligion of Humanity,â€ which declared that narcissistic Promethean man was the true object of worship. Darwinâ€™s â€œOn the Origin of Speciesâ€ undercut the authority of God by positing that man had evolved from slime. This provided anti-God freethinkers with a supposedly â€˜scientificâ€™ creation story. Thus empowered, they brazenly declared the death of God and began to unleash the full fury of their malignant envy and wrath upon an unsuspecting Christendom, Eastern Orthodox Christian Russia, and eventually Christian-Judeo America. These civilizations and their citizens were to be â€˜unmadeâ€™ in the name of anti-Genesis science and reason. In their place would be devised a scientifically planned utopia and a New Un-Man fashioned to serve the egoistic vagaries and base appetites of the Promethean sub creators.
It was out of a crucible of insatiable appetite and malignant narcissism fueled by Nietzscheâ€™s will to force that all variants of socialism arose: Marxism, Stalinism, Maoism, Nazism, and todayâ€™s progressivism, liberalism, feminazism, eco-radicalism, and the gay liberation movement, now evolving into a â€˜polymorphously perverse beingsâ€™ movement.
Gay activists may howl and shriek in furious denial of the connection between their faux civil rights movement and socialism, but it is gay communists who have â€œlet the cat out of the bag.â€
In 1974, David Thorstadtâ€”prominent member of the gay rights movement, Trotskyist, and founder of NAMBLA (North American Man-Boy Love Assoc.), co-authored with John Lauritson, a history of the early gay rights movement. The history, entitled The Early Homosexual Rights Movement: 1864-1935 links the modern post Stonewall Rebellion movement to its birth in Germany, in 1864. It also details the linkage to socialism.
Leslie Feinberg, transgender lesbian activist, author, and managing editor of the communist Workers World Newspaper concurs with Thorstadt: â€œThe first great wave of struggle to demand sexual and gender emancipation had taken place from 1869 to 1935. It began in Germany. It was a dynamic, expanding movement that grew to be international.â€ (Rise of German Homosexual Emancipation Movement, www.workers.org)
At a Berlin rally held in front of the Reichstag building in 1918, Magnus Hirschfield, socialist leader of the Homosexual Emancipation Movement, stressed why socialism was crucial to their success: â€œSocialism means: solidarityâ€¦further development of society into a unified body of people.â€ Recalling Marx, Engelâ€™s and other communist revolutionaries, Hirschfield said that not only in Germany, â€œbut elsewhere too, nationalism attempted to destroy internationalism and militarism attempted to destroy socialism.â€ (The War to End All Wars: Pride and Struggle a Century Ago, Leslie Feinberg, www.workers.org)
Ernst Rohmâ€”sadomasochistic homosexual, Hitlerâ€™s right-hand man, and icon for many gay activists today, was also a key player in the early gay movement. Progressive gay journalist, Johann Hari disclosed: â€œRohm was the founding father of Nazism. He believed that gay people were superior to straights and saw homosexuality as a key principle of his proposed Brave New Fascist Order. As historian Louis Snyder explains, Rohm â€œprojected a social order in which homosexuality would be regarded as a human behavior of high repute.â€ (www.JohannHari.com) The insane notion that socially destructive behaviors should be elevated to a level of â€˜superiorityâ€™ is the fuel driving Americaâ€™s gay rights movement and is at work this very moment in schools, universities, Hollywood, etc.
As with Rohm, Lenin and the Bolsheviks likewise regarded homosexuality, transgender, etc., superior to the Genesis account of man, and in their narcissistic-induced stupidity they unleashed its destructive forces upon Eastern-Orthodox Christian Russia. â€œSoviet sexologists in the 1920s participated in the international movement for sexual reformâ€¦a pamphlet titled â€œThe Sexual Revolution in Russiaâ€¦stated: Soviet legislation bases itself on the following principle: it declares the absolute non-interference of the State and society into sexual matters as long as nobody is injured, and no oneâ€™s interests are encroached upon. Concerning homosexuality, sodomy, and various other forms of sexual gratification, which are set down in European legislation as offenses against public morality—Soviet legislation treats these the same as so-called â€œnaturalâ€ intercourse.â€ (Soviet Union in the 1920s: Scientific, not Utopian, www.workers.org) In the preceding statements, we can clearly see the foundational basis for todayâ€™s politically correct notions of tolerance, inclusion, privacy, consent and the forced-feeding of â€˜gayâ€™ perversion to American school children. â€œThe Bolshevik Party did not merely scrap anti-homosexual Tsarist laws. They felt it was necessary to tear down the walls that divided homosexualityâ€¦from the rest of society. Soviet Russia was by far the most significant power since the French Revolution to decriminalize male same-sex.â€ (People of the Moonlight in the Dawn of Revolution, www.workers.org)
The first demands for same-sex marriage, sex reassignment surgery, and the right to â€˜cross-dressâ€™ were not made in post-Stonewall America but in Bolshevik controlled Russia. These things were disclosed in the article, 1920s Soviet Union: Rights for Lesbians, Transgenders, Transsexuals. It was also reported that masculinized, cross-dressing females were rewarded with influential positions of authority and influence throughout academia, the Red Army, and in the cultural arena. â€œwomen of the masculinized type (cross-dressing army commanders, for instance) were considered with fascination and indulgence.â€ (www.workers.org)
The same article bashes â€œbackwardâ€ Christian-Judeo America for not allowing the mainstreaming of perversion: â€œThat same year (1923) in the U.S., where anti-sodomy laws aimed to padlock closet doors, the FBI labeled anarchist Emma Goldman â€œthe most dangerous woman in Americaâ€ because of her vocal support for gay rights and other forms of social equality.â€
As Utopian Madness Fades, a Semblance of Sanity Returns
The Bolsheviksâ€™ fantasy of a Godless, morals free utopia, peopled by a New UnMan–a soulless, polymorphously perverse industrial robot– collapsed into a hellish nightmare. It was a scene out of a pornographic bedlam: hordes of conscienceless â€œchildren of the Stateâ€ visiting havoc and crime upon cities and towns, sex slavery, prostitution, gross debauchery and outright chaos. After years of revolution and famine the economy was severely damaged, and with the death of the familyâ€”the building block of societyâ€”both economy and culture collapsed.
Too late, the Bolsheviks and Lenin realized that without the family, there is no future.
In a desperate attempt to revive the family, Bolsheviks began to rein in sexual debauchery. By 1923, homosexuals lost the â€˜rightâ€™ to harass straight men for sex, for this became a crime. Then in 1927, the â€˜rightâ€™ to engage in sodomy was lost (criminalized) as was the right to keep â€œbachiâ€â€”cross-dressed, feminized boy dancers kept as prostitutes. The death knell rang in 1934 when both homosexuality and prostitution were declared crimes punishable by up to 8 years in prison. (Women in the Soviet Union, Jen Pickard, Youth for International Socialism)
The Soviet Unionâ€™s birth-to-death rate continued to fall. In the 1980â€™s, Gorbachev attempted yet more reforms. In an effort to undo dysfunctional gender-bending and restore natural male-female relations in hope of bringing the family back to life, a course titled, The Ethics and Psychology of Family Life was introduced into schools and shown on television. Its objective was to reinforce traditional roles. Teachers were urged to â€œtrain and train again, girls to be girls and boys to be boys.â€ (ibid) Meanwhile, here in America, the gender-bending continues full-throttle with this sort of lunacy: University of Michigan Offers Class: How to be Gay: Male Homosexuality and Initiation. Likewise, as was the case in Bolshevik Russia, marriage and the patriarchal family in America are under full attack–with intent to kill–as made clear by â€˜gayâ€™ activist Michelangelo Signorile who advises gays, â€œto fight for same-sex marriageâ€¦and then, once granted, redefine the institution of marriage completelyâ€¦and radically alter an archaic institution.â€ (Source: www.forthechildreninc.com)
Shortly after President Reagan made his now famous â€œevil empireâ€ speech March 8, 1983, the Soviet Unionâ€”a dead man walkingâ€”imploded.
Despite all reform efforts, Russiaâ€™s birth-to-death replacement rate in 2006 continues to fall. Confronted by the chilling prospect of a â€˜deadâ€™ Russia, Vladimir Putin has, in a last ditch effort, adopted a pro-birth policy that will pay families to have at least a second childâ€”if not more. Additionally, stay-at-home mothers will receive 40% of their former salary and families with two children will receive a lump sum of $9000.
Even as a dying Russia turns back to God and strives mightily to restore and protect the institutions of traditional marriage and family so that it might live, Americaâ€”under pressure from fantasy-believing godless Progressive utopianistsâ€”is steadfastly killing these vital life-giving institutions while simultaneously waging a war of attrition against Christianity. In the name of science, reason, progress, tolerance, inclusion, diversity, and orientation, America is casting herself into the grave from which Russia seeks escape.
