Life on the GLAAD blacklist.

A quick holiday fund-raising campaign for Behind the Black!
Scroll down to read this post.
In past years I have managed to avoid asking for donations for Behind the Black during the holiday season. My finances however now compel me to do a short one-week fund-raiser, from November 11 to November 17.
I do not use Twitter for ethical reasons, which I have been told cuts down on traffic to the website. So be it. Furthermore, Facebook has clearly acted in the past two years to limit traffic to Behind the Black, almost certainly for political reasons. So be this as well. Finally, I do not post outside ads, as I have found them annoying to my readers and not that profitable to me.


Therefore, I need to ask for the direct support from my readers. If you like what I do here, please consider contributing, either by making a one-time donation or a monthly subscription, as indicated in the tip jar below.


Regular readers can support Behind The Black with a contribution via paypal:

Or with a subscription with regular donations from your Paypal or credit card account:

If Paypal doesn't work for you, you can support Behind The Black directly by sending your donation by check, payable to Robert Zimmerman, to
Behind The Black
c/o Robert Zimmerman
P.O.Box 1262
Cortaro, AZ 85652


Or you could consider purchasing one of my books, as indicated in the boxes scattered throughout the website. My histories of space exploration are award-winning and are aimed for the general public. All are page-turners, and all not only tell the story of the beginning of the human exploration of space, they also help explain why we are where we are today. And I also have a science fiction book available, Pioneer, which tells its own exciting story while trying to predict what life in space will be like two hundred years in the future.


Note that for this week only I am also having a sale on the purchase of the last 20 hardbacks of Leaving Earth. (Click on the link for more information about the book, which was endorsed by Arthur C. Clarke himself!) This award-winning out-of-print book is now only available as an ebook, but I still have a handful of hardbacks available, normally for sale for $70 plus $5 shipping. For this week only you can buy them, personally autographed by me, for $50 plus $5 shipping! Just send me a check, payable to Robert Zimmerman, to the address above, with a note saying that the money is for the Leaving Earth hardback.


Please consider donating. Your help will make it possible for me to continue to be an independent reporter in the field of space, science, technology, and culture.

McCarthyism of the left: Life on the GLAAD blacklist.

And yes, this gay activist group has a blacklist and they use it to squelch and destroy people who disagree with them.

    Very intelligent, very organized, very politically savvy, very well connected, very well funded, very plugged in to mass media and very, very liberal.

    Its too bad that a competent Conservative / Republican can not articulate a message of respect related to their individual chosen life styles, even if that Conservative / Republican strongly disagrees with that life style. Respect is the beginning of compromise and votes, and one mans morality may not totally be another mans morality and government can not legislate morality.

    By not being able to accomplish that goal and end run them (no pun intended), if it in deed is a goal, is to allow liberals to loose their gay dogs of political war on the general public and force through political correctness their full liberal agenda. Enough of allowing the liberals to define the subject and whip it out ( pun intended) when ever they want to change the subject at hand.

    It is groups like GLAAD and the unions that make up the far left, is it any wonder why the democrat party has left the JFK dems, the author of this article was very good at conveying the hate that GLAAD has for conservative Americans, and about McCarthy, his tactics were brutish, but who was it that turned those tactics around on him, I fear that he was correct in his assertions of communism being rampant in Hollywood.

    Q: How do you make Conservatism less of an existential threat to these people?

    Everyone at their core is Conservative, liberal thought is intellectualized luxury thought with the effect of appearing compassionate but actually causing dependency.

    Cotour, it seems as if the liberal media and liberal education(all facets) are much to blame for the dishonesty in liberal thought, the people who aspire to run a civilization have this thought that if they do it right, that they can enable a cradle to grave lifestyle that keeps their subjects under control and elevates their status as intellectual and to be thought of as DIETY.

    And when the people begin to understand (as I believe they are beginning to understand) that they are being lied to and being shackled with massive debt as a strategy of control, empty promises and a violated Constitution?

    At that point there must emerge someone who can properly articulate an alternative reality, someone who lies outside of the main stream, go along to get along rubber stamp politicians. This political sickness of dependency is now almost 3 generations deep. There are Gays, Liberals and disillusioned main stream Democrats that understand that their party is broken to the point of farce.

    A Conservative must immerge that can articulate sane and respectful ideas where these people feel included and not vilified. That person to me at this point is Ted Cruz, he’s the only politician who talks both about respect of the individual and the Constitution.

    want to ad two names to that list: Mike Lee and Scott Walker.
