Video: The discrimination is indefensible, the therapy is discredited; truth must be twisted

by Jeremy Hooper

WND contributor Jason Mitchell likes to call himself "Molotov," apparently because he sees himself as explosive in that tough, no nonsense, "I'm gonna school ya!" kind of way that puts aggression before reason's calmer waters. But to me, that combustible label more aptly applies to the way this commentator and performance artist, much like the outlet that hosts him, so often and so deliberately obliterates the truth.

In the following vid, Mitchell:

  • Claims that LGBT people are unfairly singled out by the New Mexico Human Rights Act, even though the NMHRA specifically applies to race, color, national origin, religion, sex, age, physical or mental handicap, serious medical condition, ancestry, physical or mental handicap, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, and genetic predisposition.

  • Dismisses a state Supreme Court judge's learned application of the law, mocking voice and all, since that learned application of fair nondiscrimination policy is his monologue's Achilles Heel.

  • Denies that homosexuality is inborn, saying it's more like being a doctor or playing sports, coupling it with that uber lame (and way overused) claim about the late Michael Jackson wanting to change his ethnicity.

  • Makes some weird and unbacked claim that bisexuality, a recognized sexual orientation that seems to deeply confound social conservatives, is proof of "change"

  • Claims that America, which does not have hate speech laws (a concept that most LGBT activists, self included, oppose), is a land where people can be arrested for simply stating their opinion that gay people should be straight.

  • Claims that a 17-year-old rape victim would not be able to get proper therapy for the sexual assault, thanks to NJ's law on "ex-gay" therapy, which both implies that (a) being a lesbian is something that can be raped into being and (b) that true traumas are off the table whenever the true nature of sexual orientation is responsibility understood and applied.

  • Claims that NJ Governor Chris Christie's signing of that law limiting "ex-gay" therapy for minors flies in the face of facts, even thought the factual truth is that the entire scientific community opposes efforts to "change" gay people (especially when targeting vulnerable minors).

And more. Actuality, meet your molotov cocktail:
