Fascist California: Two stories today illustrate forcefully the fascist political atmosphere in the state of California. And both are in support of the totalitarian homosexual agenda.

In the first story, the California Assembly has passed a bill that would ban any book, publication, or activity that is aimed at helping someone who wishes to stop their attraction to the same sex. As noted in the article,

“The State of California has no right to deny its residents the resources to help them find happiness or to shut down counselors, schools, and religious organizations that provide those services,” California Family Council president Jonathan Keller said of the vote. “Every person experiencing unwanted same-sex attraction or gender dysphoria must be allowed to pursue help in achieving their desired goals and outcomes.”

The bill is unprecedented for another reason, too: by classifying the subject under prohibited “goods,” which critics say means it would go so far as to ban the sale of books endorsing the practice, as well as other forms of constitutionally-protected speech. “At its core, AB 2943 outlaws speech,” Alliance Defending Freedom’s (ADF) legal analysis of the bill reads. It says that licensed counseling, religious conferences, book sales, and paid speaking engagements could all potentially face legal penalties for promoting ways to reverse unwanted attractions or for expressing traditional Christian teachings on sexuality.

In the second story, the Orange County school district is telling parents that they have no right to opt their children out of its pro-gay sex education classes, even though the law that established these homosexual-friendly classes expressly states that “parents [have] the ability to opt-out of this education and … that the “pupil” shall not be punished academically in any way if they don’t participate.”

To those in power in California, the concept of freedom is essentially dead. They are going to make you do as they demand, no matter what. And you will have no right to dissent.

    Welcome to Obama’s America, land of the formerly free and where laws are only applied to reward friends and punish enemies.

    But when it comes to parodies it’s hard to beat The Simpsons.

    At least high-capacity bongs with pistol grips are still legal.

    FC–
    that is hilarious! (and oh-so true!)
    pivoting massively–
    Q: for anyone who might know:

    I know a Guy, he has a concealed-carry permit for a handgun in Oregon. (He’s perfectly legal, in Oregon.)
    He was in los Angeles in a bad area (doing ‘legal-weed deliveries’) (yeah.. I know), 4 guys attempted to jack him up, he pulled his gun to threaten them away, they called his bluff, so he shot into the air and they fled. Then the Cops went medieval all over him. (He did not attempt to flee and cooperated fully.)
    NOW, he’s facing a variety of “gun charges,” although they have down-charged him with ‘just’ “negligent discharge,” and offered him a plea-deal for a 6 month jail term.
    –He maintains, “yeah, I discharged my gun, but it was a self-defense thing,” and demanded a Jury trial.
    –Can anyone offer me some righteous speculation as to the potential outcome, with a jury drawn from LA? (They are not charging him for the gun itself or related, but are focusing on the ‘negligent’ discharge exclusively.
    (Yes, he has a lawyer, and this has been going on for 7 months, with 1/2 a dozen delays in the process, and he’s out on bail.)

    I’d love some Input from anyone.

    Mitch S:
    Interestingly related… the obama administration dumped about 200 Ethiopian refugees into the surrounding area of Saugatuck. We’ll see how that plays out….

    Since he was defending the Holy Weed, there is a good chance he will get let off by a jury, IMO.

    It used to be that the left thought schools shouldn’t be a place of indoctrinating values but now that they control the schools, they think schools are obligated to indoctrinate values.

    We have separation of church and state. Religion is an ideology, just like progressivism. Progresives use their ideology as religion. It should not be inculcate into little kids at school.

    Kids are forced to go to school and many times public schools are the only options. No one should be forced into a system where a political party used the tools of government to impose their ideology on children. The larger problem is that they do this at private schools too through regulations.

    Concerning the banning of books.
    “by classifying the subject under prohibited “goods,” which critics say means it would go so far as to ban the sale of books endorsing the practice”
    The local news reported on this subject this morning, that the ban list included the Bible, and many other religious works. Lots of schools have a seminary on campus, we do not know yet what will happen if they take their Bible into the school.
