Gotta Love How the Activists “Think”

May 27, 2017

Leftist activists and militants never let the facts get in the way of a good ideology. After all, facts, evidence and sound arguments would put an end to their moonbeam agendas, so they stay well clear of them. Thus they simply emote instead, and seek to bully and intimidate into silence anyone who dares to differ.

court 7That is how the homosexual activists operate par excellence. That is what they do. They emote, they yell a lot, they seek to shut down all debate, and they seek to demonise everyone who has an opinion that differs from their own. That is their normal operating procedure.

We see all this perfectly played out in the current war over Margaret Court and her comments on Qantas and homosexual marriage. All the details of that tragic and ongoing saga I have offered elsewhere: billmuehlenberg.com/2017/05/26/big-business-radical-agendas-people-power/

So let me try to make a bit of sense out of this whole debate. Just what is actually going on here? Let’s look at a few simple truths:

-Qantas is in bed with Emirates Airlines. On April 1, 2013 the alliance was formed, and it is still going strong.

-The alliance of course is all about money, as are all business alliances. It sure is not about deeply held principles and moral concerns.

-Emirates of course is based in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

-The UAE is a Muslim majority nation on the Persian Gulf. It is a federation of 7 emirates.

-Being a Muslim nation, homosexuality is of course illegal there. There is even a question whether the death penalty applies to homosexuality there. But homosexuals are certainly targeted in that nation. Consider just a few cases of what happens in Dubai, as reported by Wiki:

The legal and social sanctions against LGBT people mean that no formal LGBT organizations or nightclubs exist in Dubai. One nightclub called the Diamond Club sponsored a special night for the LGBT community, featuring a British cross-dressing DJ, only to be shut down by the Government. In 2011, two men were caught having sex in a car and were sentenced to a year each in prison. Both men were deported following their prison terms.
In 2012, police arrested two Indian men for having consensual sex in a public toilet at a bus station. Both were jailed for six months each and were deported following their prison terms. In the same year, a 28-year-old British man who drunkenly had sex with another man in public were both sentenced to three years in jail followed by deportation. On 21 March 2012, police raided and broke up a gay party consisting of 30 men. On 7 June 2012, a Belgian man admitted to police that he was in a homosexual relationship with a Filipino. He was arrested and jailed for a year to be followed by deportation.
In 2014, Karen Mke and Kamilla Satto, two transgender women from Brazil, were arrested at a hotel nightclub in Dubai for “imitating women.” The women were not allowed to leave Dubai once their passports were taken, and faced criminal charges.
On 9 August 2016, Canadian-American model Gigi Gorgeous, who is transgender, had her passport taken and was detained by officials at Dubai International Airport, due to authorities not recognizing her gender as legitimate. She was released after being detained for over five hours.

-Alan Joyce, the CEO of Qantas, is an out and proud homosexual.

-He is using Qantas as his own personal lobby tool, promoting all things homosexual, whether the rest of the Qantas team like it or not. What was to be the premier Australian flagship is now simply his own political lobby group, to push his personal lifestyle preferences.

-Joyce is especially incensed with former tennis great Margaret Court for daring to say that she believes marriage is only a heterosexual affair, and she will not fly with Qantas because of its radical homosexual agenda being forced down the throats of everyone.

-He and his homosexual buddies have declared war on Court. Court must be really evil – she actually dares to state that she favours marriage between a man and a woman. Horrific!

-Joyce and Qantas have said absolutely nothing about their partnership with Emirates, and the fact that the nation it operates from arrests those found out to be engaged in homosexual acts.

So let me just try to get this all straight. Business deals with nations that fiercely persecute homosexuals are just peachy, but an Australian tennis great merely expressing her point of view on the matter is the devil incarnate. Right. I see how all that works – I think.

But it is not just Joyce and Qantas who are up to their ears in hypocrisy and double standards, as well as complete irrationality. I have had plenty of folks blast me and Court over the past few days, accusing us of everything under the sun.

They especially hate our supposed lack of “diversity” and “acceptance”. Hmm, there sure seem to be a lot of double faults being served up by all these critics. So let me see if I understand all this aright: A CEO of a company is allowed to push his lifestyle and personal political views on to an entire airline and everyone else, yet when a tennis great dares to share her beliefs on such an important matter, she is treated like Attila the Hun.

I see. Gotta love all that diversity, acceptance and inclusion! Never mind that the double standards and hypocrisy are all lost on these folks. Never mind that for a group that talks so much about tolerance and acceptance, they are the most intolerant and unaccepting group around.

Oh, and just for good measure, let me mention yet another example of this moonbattery. It involves a comment that has just come in to my website. It so perfectly illustrates the remarkable reasoning abilities, mental and moral clarity, and depth of insight of the activists. It really does put me to shame.

This guy has caught me out big time. I am utterly speechless. I simply have nothing to say in response. This was the guy’s actual comment: “Are you secretly gay Bill?” Yep. That’s it. The gig is up – he has certainly exposed me now. Of course that’s it.

Why else would anyone stand up for heterosexual marriage and normal human sexuality? Why else would one stand up for what has been the norm throughout human history? That’s it by Jove – yes I am a homosexual. Oh well, time to find a new day job I guess, now that he has caught me out.

What is that old saying about being a millionaire by now if I got a dollar for every time someone said something? Well, I sure would be filthy rich by now if I did get a buck every time I had these homosexual activists throw that line at me.

You would think that after it was used around 38 katrillion times, they just might come up with a new line of attack, or a new “argument”? Oh well, I guess not. So this is what we are up against. This is the sort of “reasoning” we must face. These are the sorts of “arguments” we must deal with.

This is the opposition we face. It sure don’t look pretty. But that is the nature of the beast, and that is what we must contend with.

Hmm, I wonder what new comments are awaiting me in my inbox.

  • One can only hope that the reaction toward Margaret Court might in fact work against the homosexual lobby with the public…if they can see how intolerant these people actually are? Keep up the great work Bill.

  • Alan Joyce is using Qantas as a private use for SSM yet a respected tennis player, writer, Christian and pastor Margaret is being scorned and mocked openly for her right to stand up for marriage as one man, one woman. Where is the democratic free speech and the right to debate in a free country, fought hard for by our Australian soldiers in WW1, WW2 and ongoing wars to keep us free and to have choice in beliefs, speech and ones own moral truths?

  • I’m wondering what the Qantas Shareholders have to say. Do they run the company or does Alan Joyce?

  • Awesome article Bill.
    One rule for Alan Joyce inside Australia but a totally different rule with Emirates outside Australia. What a hypocrite.
    Why doesn’t Joyce do us all a favour and have a week away with his male lover in Dubai? A proven homosexual act should keep him locked up for a least 2 years and out of harm’s way free from jamming his perverse lifestyle down our collective throats. What a relief.

    Seriously the failure of the Qantas board to control Joyce beggars belief,
    God bless
    Phil

  • I would really love to know what the owners of Emirates have to say about Joyce’s ssm activism…. Can this story get whipped up a bit more? Very well written Bill!

  • Phil Brooks, love your response, most encouraging!
    Robert Greggery.

  • Hi Bill you titled your previous article “war is declared”. It has often been said that the first casualty of war is the truth. Mr Joyce and his cohorts are hell bent (literally) on suppressing the truth. History tells us that they’re doomed to failure. As always Bill, your articles are accurate, well balanced and informative. Regards, Kel.
    P.S. I am sure that the ensuing responses from the local moonbeam brigade will give you a chuckle!

  • Of course you’re gay! Anyone looking at your profile photo can see a wee smile and only happy people smile … or maybe babies with wind?

  • Guess that’s the end of an Aussie home grown legend! QANTAS is now a tool to further one groups agenda, very sad.

  • Here Here!!! Thank you Bill for simplifying this entire thing!!! Freedom of speech and ideas is vital to our society.
    Anna Frase

  • Phil Brooks, Joyce is not trying to ram his lifestyle down our throats…he is trying to ram it somewhere else.

  • Qantas is just another utility of sorts, much like the sewer system as it gets something from A to B. Homosexual & Qantas boss Alan Joyce explains things clearly.

    God Bless Bill.

  • Hey Phil, love your suggestion I’ll even pay for the hotel room if you can get him on the plane – know any good airlines? (We used to have a good one). I won’t be using Qantas ever again – happy to stay home!
    Hey Bill, I know what your real problem is….’you’re secretly sane’ unlike the rest of this mad world.
    Hey Mike, I don’t see much difference between Qantas and the sewer system in actual fact both distribute pretty ‘stinky’ agendas.
    On a serious note if Joyce had any personal convictions he would resign due to the conflict of stance with Emirates, but of course for all his pontificating and advocacy he is in it for the money – what a slimy little hipocrite.
    As always Bill you are a breath of sanity and clarity – God bless your ministry. Some of the posts made me laugh out loud this time, classics.

  • I think I’ll join Margaret and give the flying kangaroo a wide berth from now on.

  • Great story Bill…keep on ‘shining the light’ of intelligence and balance…..

  • Thanks Susie – will do!

  • Hi Bill. I’ve just watched The Project interview they had with Margret Court. What a disgrace! That panel is joke. The little to no respect they showed to a person like her is clear to be seen. I’m in support of Margaret’s view because it’s God’s view. She put to the Australian public that God ordained marriage and He defines it. I’m incensed with what is happening.

  • Thanks always Bill. All of the Qantas promotions of SSM should come with a health warning just as cigarette packets do. One only needs to go to the Centre for Disease Control’s web site and read the medical disorders that the homosexual act produces.

  • Paul Throns, the Project is on a commercial channel, correct (yes, TEN)?

    They survive on advertising, meaning they have to get viewers to watch.
    Thus it is in their interests to stir up controversy.
    The political bias of most of the media (NB: we are ALL biased) is far more towards leftist totalitarianism than the general population.
    Those views tend to attack all that is good, Godly and especially Christian
    So the easiest way to stir up a storm is to attack Christians, who generally don’t try to behead their opponents.

    Hmm, I wonder if we can restore the Order of Knights Templar?

  • Situations like this leave me completely frustrated. What can the majority of clear thinking people do to combat the imbalance of air time given to these minorities? A letter to the Editor of the daily paper will maybe stir up a modicum of interest and replies, but nothing changes. What other avenues are open to the mainstream of heterosexual, happily married couples, raising families with good social consciences, to be able to protest effectively? If a person with the linguistic and literary skills of you, Bill, are wasted on the desert air, (or at best read by your followers and supporters) what hope have the rest of us got to have our convictions carry any weight?

  • Hi Bill
    I fear your “homosexual” confession will be taken totally out of context to attack and vilify you even more. Be interesting to see what the LGBTQI etc brigade make of it!
    Vic Trudeau

  • From Andrew Bolt’s blog.

    Reader Peter explains:

    Andrew, all your questions will be answered if you buy a copy of Saul Alinsky’s ‘Rules for Radicals’. Margaret Court was just being hammered in accordance with Rule 13. It has been the same for Tony Abbott, Sophie Miribella and George Pell. It’s nothing personal, its just that they represent western liberal institutions that must be defeated by the cultural Marxists.

    Rule 13 – “Pick the target, freeze it, personalise it, and polarise it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions”.

  • Isaiah 5:20 sums it up really well: “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”

  • Good on you Margaret Court for speaking out for your Christian beliefs on Marriage.
    Should be more ChristianChurch Leaders like you.
    Australia is heading down the slippery slope fast if as a Nation we accept Gay Marriage.
    God may not protect Australia if this is legalised.
    Sad part is we may all suffer.
    Pray Pray Pray

  • By boldly stating her stance on marriage, Margaret Court has literally ‘opened a can of worms’ that are now out to devour her and, by inference, anyone who openly supports her views which, regardless of Biblical teaching, have been held from antiquity by peoples throughout the world, including the Aboriginal culture of this land.

  • Dear Bill,

    I am conflicted. Margaret Court wanted to boycott Qantas because they endorsed same-sex marriage. She sent a strong message based on her solid Christian values.

    If we want to send a message to businesses that go in that direction that we don’t want to give them our hard-earned money if they take that stance, we need to be really consistent in that message.

    So I have looked around and tried to find those corporations that I can patronise that don’t support same-sex marriage and I tell you, I am really struggling to put a solid list together.

    It’s like swimming against the tide Bill, and the current is getting stronger.

    I pray a lot. I want to be the best Christian I can be, and I don’t want to go against the word of Our Lord.

    Please help me Bill. I need your guidance.

    Yours in Christ.
    Toby.

  • Thanks Toby, and thanks for caring. I have written about this often now. See here for example:

    https://billmuehlenberg.com/2015/09/19/babylon-its-fall-and-the-mark-of-the-beast/

    As more and more business get in bed with evil, we will have less and less options if we want to keep a clear conscience. So yes it gets real tough, be it dealing with banks or airlines or what have you. We can look around for suitable options for now, and hopefully they still exist. But in the days to come there will be less and less suitable options. But see the article I link to above for some more thoughts on this. And see this one as well:
