The phenomenal inroads homosexuals have made into general society over the past thirty years have been accomplished thanks to their astute exercise of political muscle and influence and to their manipulation of the mainstream media who have become complicit by consistently promoting the manufactured myth that gays are simply innocent variations on a new norm and that they have been unjustly discriminated against for millennia merely because they are misunderstood. 

The short answer is: lack of  In fact, The Gay Myth that homosexuals are universally good people who would never harm anyone, the myth that has won over millions of Americans to their cause, is a farce. 

JesseDirkhising.jpg  Nothing, not the brutal rape, torture, and murder of 13 year old Jesse Dirkhising by two homosexual perverts in 1999–and subsequent cover up by the MSM–nor any other gay atrocities before or since better illustrate the MSM’s complicity in The Gay Myth than the recent cases of the former lead singer of the rock band Lostprophets and a star of A&E’s “Duck Dynasty.”
ian watins lostprophets  Lostprophets’ Ian Watkins pleaded guilty last month and was sentenced to up to 35 years in jail by a British judge who said he had “plumbed new depths of depravity” in committing a series of depraved, sexual offenses against young children, including attempting to rape babies, sexually assaulting a one year old boy, encouraging a fan to sexually abuse her son, and filming child pornography. 
Judge John Royce called Watkins a manipulative and dangerous sexual predator who had abused his fame to help satisfy his “insatiable lust.”
Described as a “determined and committed” pedophile, Watkins had been outed as a gay perv by his then-prostitute girlfriend as far back as 2006.
Joanna Majic, demonstrating a hooker has a far better sense of morality than a rock star, dumped Watkin’s sorry ass after he told her his sexual fantasies revolved around abusing children and admitted he used his Lostprophets’ fame and fortune to turn young girls into “superfans” willing to allow him to abuse their kids.  Majic told police, “there’s hundreds of victims out there and you’re never going to find them because the mothers are in on it” but the police refused to investigate her allegations.
One wonders whether the British cops were afraid to go after Watkins in view of his status as a popular, gay rocker–and out of fear they would be criticized for persecuting innocent homosexuals.
No such fear bothered the very gay friendly Huffpo.com when they gleefully headined that ” ‘Duck Dynasty’ Star Phil Robertson Makes Anti-Gay Remarks, Says Being Gay Is A Sin,” as if that were important news to either Robertson or to anyone else.
Huffpo’s Cavan Sieczkowski went on to observe with amazement that, “Not only does ‘Duck Dynasty’ star Phil Robertson fail to understand what it’s like to be gay, but he also thinks homosexuality is a sin comparable to bestiality.  GLADD cited the “shocking new interview” and called Robertson’s statements “vile” and “littered with outdated stereotypes.”
Slashing and burning Phil Robertson for speaking his mind, GLADD spokesman Wilson Cruz went on to claim, “Phil and his family claim to be Christian, but Phil’s lies about an entire community fly in the face of what true Christians believe.  He clearly knows nothing about gay people or the majority of Louisianans–and Americans–who support legal recognition for loving and committed gay and lesbian couples.”
In an obvious effort to intimidate A&E advertisers, Cruz ranted, “Phil’s decision to push vile and extreme stereotypes is a stain on A&E and his sponsors who now need to reexamine their ties to someone with such public disdain for LGBT people and families,” a wish not endorsed by at least one brave sponsor and by millions of “Duck Dynasty” fans.
According to Robertson, after  Now, granted, the Duck “patriarch” was rather graphic in his observations and maybe should have been less so when he schooled GQ readers on his well-founded beliefs.  As the rough-hewn Robertson said,  “It seems like, to me, a vagina–as a man–would be more desirable than a man’s anus.  That’s just me. I’m just thinking: There’s more there! She’s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I’m saying? But hey, sin: It’s not logical, my man. It’s just not logical.”
However, even those comments may have been forgivable by the all-powerful Gay Lobby, had Robertson not added, “Everything is blurred on what’s right and what’s wrong. Sin becomes fine.  Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men.  Don’t be deceived.  Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers–they won’t inherit the kingdom of God.  Don’t deceive yourself.  It’s not right.”
That afterthought must have struck hypersensitive homosexual nerves because soon after Robertson was put on indefinite hiatus, suspended (read: fired) from the top-rated cable reality program although A&E–knowing who butters its bread, advertisers–will nevertheless air a Duck Dynasty marathon starring Robertson.
Hypocritically trying to cover all demographic bases, A+E Networks released a self-serving statement to Variety: “We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson’s comments in GQ, which are based on his own personal beliefs and are not reflected in the series Duck Dynasty. His personal views in no way reflect those of A+E Networks, who have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community.”
If A&E feared advertisers–or the public–would dump the Duck franchise en masse, they were woefully wrong.
Skyjacker, a builder of  truck suspensions, told TMZ that it fully supported Robertson and the show and noted that “it’s a matter of God and country–it’s a  free country and Phil has a right to his opinions. . . .We are a Christian-based company and actively share our faith so standing with Phil Robertson is an easy choice for us.”
Skyjacker was unsurprisingly joined by Louisiana’s Governor Bobby Jindal and fellow Republicans Sarah Palin, Ted Cruz, and others and, surprisingly, by the openly gay, dissident feminist Camille Paglia and Time.com’s homosexual writer, Brandon Ambersino.  Paglia considers Robertson’s firing to be on ”the level of punitive PC, utterly fascist, utterly Stalinist” Ambersino  essentially wrote that he disagreed with what Robertson said but would defend to the death his right to say it.
Unlike gay rock star Ian Watkins, neither the patriarch nor his clan have any worries over their future.  Nor does “Duck Dynasty.”
As a result of a classically-American entreprenurial spirit and hard work, Robertson and his family are prosperous beyond their wildest imaginings and, if cancelled, their show would surely land another cable gig. In the meantime, according to CBS, millions of their fans are boycotting A&E and a website, IstandwithPhil.com, has been set up to petition A&E to reinstate the patriarch.
