The Gay City News had one thing right: it’s all about money and politics.
The more super-wealthy Hollywood elites get involved in pushing their left-wing political agenda, the clearer the connections become. And now they are openly proclaimed and celebrated.
At a charitable fundraising gala earlier this month in Los Angeles, Ryan Murphy, the creator of “Pose,” “American Horror Story” and “Glee,” accepted recognition as a champion for LGBTQ causes.
His reception remarks quickly pivoted to an announcement: he launched a $multi-million political action committee targeting opponents to the LGBTQ agenda.
The aim is clear: locate and fund opponents to conservative Republicans running for office in 2020. The PAC: Pose Gives Back, hopes to garner corporate sponsorships in order to back candidates who run against targeted candidates.
In the Gay City News, Murphy is quoted as saying, “Senate and congressional candidates who think they can get votes hurting and discriminating against us — well, we can get votes too.”
This caught the attention of outspoken Christian conservative commentator Todd Starnes, who said that Murphy’s announcement is tantamount to a declaration of war on politicians who support traditional marriage and who oppose letting sexually disoriented men into the ladies’ room.
people like murphy think church-going midwesterners and southerners are wicked people who must be silenced.
“Murphy is not the first anti-Christian, multi-millionaire to use his cash to bully and badger people of faith,” Starnes said.
“Tim Gill, a software programmer, committed $500 million to fight religious liberty bills across the nation and to silence Christian bakers and florists and wedding planners.”
Some of the 20 tentatively listed targets include Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT), Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME), Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Rep. Steve King (R-IA).
Starnes warned that the agenda of Pose Gives Back and other left-wing political organizations is diametrically opposed to Christian, Biblical principles.
“People like Murphy think church-going Midwesterners and Southerners are wicked people who must be silenced,” Starnes said, adding that they even proclaim a “punish-the-wicked” sense of urgency.
“And by ‘wicked,’ he means every American who believes marriage is between one man and one woman. Chilling,” Starnes said.
“Murphy wants to punish politicians who he believes are imposing their moral and ethical ether on the nation,” he concluded. “And he’s going to punish them by imposing his own moral and ethical ether on the nation.”
