GLAAD honors biased gay blogger after applauding $100k fine for Kobe Bryant

The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), a gay advocacy group most recently in the news for pressuring the Los Angeles Lakers to fine Kobe Bryant $100,000 for saying “faggot” during a basketball game, may not be living up to its own mission statement of “ holding the media accountable for the words and images they present.”

This month GLAAD announced its annual media awards. The website JoeMyGod (www.joemygod.com), run by gay activist Joe Jervis, won the category for best blog.

But Jarvis often refers to gay conservatives in language unfitting of GLAAD’s catch phrase, “Words and Images Matter” — frequently using misogynistic language and comparing conservatives to Nazi collaborators.

“One thing about the kapo bootlickers at GOProud, we alway$ know where their prioritie$ lie,” Jarvis wrote in December about the conservative gay group GOProud’s support of tax cuts.

During World War II “Kapos” were concentration camp prisoners who worked inside the camps on behalf of the Nazis. Jarvis often tags articles about gay Conservatives with the word “kapo” and/or “quisling” (a term referring to a traitor who collaborates with fascists, which has its origins in Nazi Germany)

In another example, when Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain’s chief of staff, Mark Buse, was outed as a a gay man, Jarvis had some rough words for the Republican staffer.

“Oh, this is going to be FUN,” he wrote. “But also, UGH. We’ve got another scumbag traitorous Quisling self-hating homo KAPO working to beat down his fellow queers.”

Jarvis’s site is littered with hateful and misogynistic comments on his message boards, which his critics note, he allows to stand on his site.

GOProud was not happy to hear that the blogging bully received the award.

“This is the height of liberal hypocrisy,” Christopher R. Barron, chairman of the GOProud Board, told TheDC. “GLAAD claims that ‘words and images matter,’ yet they choose to give an award to a blogger who consistently engages in anti-gay and misogynistic attacks against gay conservatives.”

“GLAAD wants the NBA to police the words of their players but apparently that standard doesn’t apply to their award-winning blog that allows comments that go as far as encouraging violence against gay conservatives,” Barron added.

GLAAD did not immediately respond to TheDC’s requests for comment.

    The height of hypocrisy indeed.

    As an aside: The United States Dept. of Education has NO authority over local schools. In fact it is a waste of taxpayer money. They cannot dictate to local schools on ANY curriculum.

    It should also be known, many parents are removing their children from public institutions because of the far left socialist bent who demand gay orientation days. My children will NEVER step foot in a public school. I have the right as a parent not to allow my children to be subjected to mental abuse by a public school. Mental abuse stems from the indoctrination going on in public schools today. In my opinion, forcing children to listen to gay propaganda is nothing more than sexual abuse instilled mentality.

    Just take a look at the pic of Jervis… He LOOKS like a child molester!

    I Googled him for more pics, and turns out he’s FAT too!

    Just another hate-filled, fat, ugly queen…. and GLAAD supports him? Surprise, surprise…. he’s the kind of guy I wouldn’t pee on if he were on fire….

    @raveman7….So are you kidding me? “He became gay”? Whatever! Don’t feel sorry for those of us who are willing to accept who we are…..FYI…I grew up in a middle class home no “oppressive” parents. Was popular, class and student body officer, prom king…..played basketball and was friends with most of the other jocks….had girl friends who eventually became some of my best friends. Was ALWAYS gay but unwilling to admit it because of people like YOU. Didn’t rely on Oprah for anything except the good she has done in this world….Soooo no agenda on my part except expecting this country to provide me what I am guaranteed in the constitution…my civil rights!! So far what I’ve seen and read about GOProud is that of a group of gays who should have stayed closeted, afraid to stand up to the meanies who oppress you…laugh at you behind your backs and will NEVER stand up for you. You’re willing to stand back and criticize those people who have the balls to say that the right wing of the GOP is filled with lying, bigoted, haters….that’s the facts…if you can read its easy to see that. I’ve yet to read anything on JMG that can’t be substantiated by a little investigating….he has every right to his opinion on your group as you have to yours on his…..soooo accept his right to observe how your organization works and give us all a break without making stupid suggestions about your stereotypical misguided idea of why we may be gay…or why we may be willing to stand up and insist on our rights….NUF SAID! Let the hate mail begin!!

      Why should anyone even read your stupid rant if you can’t even make paragraphs? I never got past the second sentence. That may have been cathartic for you to write it personally, but I doubt if anyone will bother to actually read it.

      @ jasonut29 “Was ALWAYS gay but unwilling to admit it because of people like YOU”.

      WRONG! You didn’t admit it because you were riding on your popularity, feel good moments. Lying by omission is still lying. Your dishonesty is more than apparent.

      Your attempt at transference simply doesn’t fly.

      “Soooo no agenda on my part except expecting this country to provide me what I am guaranteed in the constitution…my civil rights!!”

      Nothing in the Constitution guarantees you the right to perversion or even marriage. Neither are “rights” guaranteed by the laws of the land.

      By LEGAL elections, the majority of people in 30 states have voted down gay marriage, yet gays continue to defy the laws. So, in actuality, gays think they can circumvent the laws because they are a “special”. They have ramped up their phony allegations to get people arrested for “hate speech”, they lie in their complaints all the while THEY continue on their violence and hateful speech. The good little socialists give them a pass all to get a vote.

      The libs/socialists sold their souls a long time ago. So, it is no wonder they back the debauchery and fraudulent agenda and propaganda of the gay movement.

    The hatred stemming from the left and the gay movement is totally mind boggling. How do elected people live with themselves knowing the lies thay are spreading with respect to this B_S about hate crimes? Most of the hate speech IS coming from the gays. Google it.

    “On “hate crimes” laws: “Hate Crime laws are just the beginning. Once those are passed either federally or in all 50 states, begin campaign to eliminate homophobia entirely.”

    “Any homophobic persons, even former homophobes that have been rehabilitated, should be required to register using the same model as child molesters. <<< In Fein's book".

    • On “hate thoughts” and “hate speech” laws: “Homophobic inclinations alone, even without any actions, should be criminal and punishable to the full extent of the law.”

    • On influencing public policy: “Make sure that gay representation permeates every level of governance.”

    • On “same-sex marriage”: “Demand the institution and then wreck it. James Dobson was right about our evil intentions. We just plan to be quicker than he thought.”

    • On “gays” in the Church: “Reclaim Jesus. He was a Jewish queer to begin with, and don’t let anyone forget it.” Clinton Fein – Gay Activist

    On yet another site, "Americablog," "scottinsf" wrote, "Trust me. I've got a big list of names of mormons and catholics that were big supporters of Prop 8. … As far as mormons and catholics … I warn them to watch their backs."

    "I hope they all rot in hell, those servants of a lying, corrupt devil! BAN RELIGIOUS FUNDAMENTALISM," wrote Angelo.

    Kirk and Madsen summarized their approach this way:

    "• Portray gays as victims, not as aggressive challengers.
    • Give potential protectors a just cause.
    • Make gays look good.
    • Make victimizers look bad."

    There are 1,000's of such remarks on various sites. In fact on Care2.com, one will get suspended if they disagree ardently with the gays and libs. I witnessed that today myself.

    Explain to me exactly who is dishing out the most hate? It is more than obvious the gays have become homofacists with their vicious vitriol. Personally, I don't care what people do behind closed doors, but enough is enough of this discrimination against people who don't agree with gays. It is beyond the pale how these radicals are duping so many people.

    Chrtis Barron of GOProud should read his volumes of vicious tweets and reflect for a moment on bullying. Endlessly obsessing about “leftist” gays seems ridiculous. There are many right wing anti-gay people he could focus on, when he’s not apologizing to THEM he’s licking their boots. (She’s a NASTY bigot”…followed by “I’m SO SORRY”). Still got you booted from CPAC, didn’t it Chris?

    Spineless, useless and self-hating. GOProud in a nutshell. I will once again direct you to Chris Barrons’ tweets. Who’s the bully? GOProud is a joke. Chris just hasn’t figured out he’s the butt of that joke and the punchline as well.

    What can you expect from a group that is totally confused about a lot of things.
