“MassResistance” confronts Democrat Congressmen face-to-face on tyrannical LGBT “Equality Act”………PART 1
Not relying on the usual pro-family lobbying strategy on this issue
Direct discussion with them revealed a lot!
May 22, 2019
Congresswoman Linda Sanchez of CA was willing to sit down with us, but would not take a copy of our book, The Health Hazards of Homosexuality, which documents huge problems regarding the “Equality Act.”
Again, MassResistance breaks the mold when it comes to fighting the culture war.
Last week the US House of Representatives passed Bill HR5, the tyrannical “Equality Act,” by a vote of 236 to 173. As we recently reported, it would radically re-write the nation’s Civil Rights Act to force the homosexual and transgender agendas into the lives of every citizen. And it’s being pushed by the national LGBT movement and much of Corporate America. It now goes to the US Senate.
This vote was not unexpected. The US House is controlled by pro-LGBT Democrats who have become unbelievably radical. Every House Democrat was a co-sponsor of the bill except one (Daniel Lipinski of IL) – and he caved in at the end and supported it. Eight RINO Republicans also voted for it.
Before the vote: MassResistance talks with seven liberal Congressmen
During the weeks leading up to the vote, most pro-family groups put their efforts on pressuring House Republicans to stick together and try to stop it, though they are outnumbered.
But MassResistance decided to take a more aggressive approach. We focused on liberal Democrat Congressmen. And we personally engaged them on this issue! Our National Organization Director, Arthur Schaper, selected seven of the worst in California.
Arthur, along with some constituents, went to their Congressman’s local “town hall” or “coffee” events and confronted them face-to-face about their support for the hideous “Equality Act.” It wasn’t easy getting them to talk with him, yet he persisted.
Arthur Schaper, our national organization director, who also lives in California, is unafraid to take on the Left or engage liberal politicians on the issues.
Congresswoman Karen Bass (Chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus) at April 6 Town Hall in Vista Del Mar, CA, takes questions from Arthur.
Congressman Lou Correa talked with Arthur at his April 22 Town Hall in Santa Ana, CA.
Congresswoman Katie Hill (openly bisexual) at her April 27 Town Hall in Santa Clarita, CA. She was less hostile to our criticism on this issue than we expected, but still completely committed to the LGBT agenda.
Congressman Mike Thompson at the same April 27 Town Hall in Santa Clarita, CA, reads the flyer on the Equality Act that Arthur (pointing) just handed to him.
Congresswoman Katie Porter at May 4 Town Hall in Irvine, CA would not address Arthur’s points at all, except to say “I’m proud to support the Equality Act.”
Congressman Harley Rouda (a former Republican who morphed into a liberal Democrat) also at the May 4 Town Hall in Irvine, CA, was afraid to even talk to Arther. He would look right at Arthur and quickly walk away. Arthur tried again outside the hall, and got the same treatment. Definitely the weirdest encounter of all.
Congresswoman Linda Sanchez sat down and talked with Arthur at her May 11 Community Coffee in La Mirada, CA.
Here’s what we learned from talking to them…..
What we learned is quite frightening, though not really surprising.
First of all, we don’t think that any of these Congressmen actually read the text of the bill. They all seemed to understand it in the vague sense of “anti-discrimination” (especially relating to employment). But when Arthur brought up specific aspects of it, such as how it will force women athletes to compete with “transgenders” who are actually men, or how it will outlaw certain therapy to help people leave homosexuality, he would just get a blank stare from them.
Second, many of them had obviously been given talking points by LGBT activists. Congressman Lou Correa told his town hall crowd that he came to his decision because “I closed my eyes and asked myself: In fifty years how will history judge us?” This is right out of the LGBT playbook.
Third, it’s clear that none of these Congressmen even cares what the bill actually says or what it would do to society. They just want to be part of the “progressives” and so they adopted that group-think. That was reflected by their unwillingness to actually discuss it on any rational level with Arthur (or anyone else there who tried). Nor were any of them interested in exploring any facts that contradicted the accepted narrative.
This complete disconnect from fact, logic, and real discussion is very dangerous and should be frightening to everyone. But this is the horrible state of American democracy today.
Nevertheless, we believe it’s very important to engage to them directly, face-to-face, with real facts and real questions. They’re certainly not going to hear it from anyone else around them!
