The United States is a third-tier country in matters of civil rights. More civilized societies would not enable, as ours currently does, a malignant monster like Maggie Gallagher, Chairman of the Board of the designated hate group The National Organization for Marriage. Gallagher’s dishonorable behavior has long been considered unacceptable by LGBT Americans, but it is past time for elected officials definitively to denounce her and her unethical backers. That the society allows Gallagher to profit from and to perpetuate institutionalized discrimination against a minority is a festering infection on its soul and on its honor in the contemporary world.
In inciting others to discrimination against gay Americans, Gallagher has no scruples. The fact of inciting to discrimination, obviously, is in itself a signifier of Gallagher’s repugnant character. Compounding her ethical repulsiveness, however, is Gallagher’s fast-and-loose handling of the financing of her campaigns to perpetuate sexual-orientation apartheid.
The administration of George W. Bush, the shameful president who supported a constitutional amendment reinforcing sexual-orientation apartheid in the United States, paid Maggie Gallagher various large sums of money to serve as one of its anti-gay propaganda mouthpieces. Using Republican, small-government tax payer money, Gallagher commenced to inflict pain on LGBT Americans by serving as one of the Bush administration’s faces of state-sponsored hate. Gallagher, fraudulently presenting herself to the public as a “journalist,” got vicious anti-gay articles published, promoting Bush’s sexual-orientation apartheid, yet did not disclose that she was on Bush’s payroll. Paid advertorials must be clearly labeled as paid advertorials. Maggie Gallagher, in cahoots with Bush to perpetuate sexual-orientation apartheid in the United States, however, published paid advertorials for hate without disclosing that they were paid advertorials. To call Gallagher a shill for hate is perhaps expressing the case too mildly. Gallagher eventually got apprehended, in a scandal that would have stopped most other imposter “journalists” from continuing in the field professionally. However, she had a flippant, obnoxious reaction when called out on her unethical behavior, and certain editors who support sexual-orientation apartheid have published her since.
Gallagher has perfected an intensely loathsome, passive-aggressive response to her critics. The sum and substance of her passive-aggressive response is, “They are trying to take away our right to discriminate against them.” Gallagher is not the first abhorrent ogre in American history to deploy such a transparent and despicable tactic in the service of hate and oppression. The slave states seceded from the union because, in their view, the north wanted to take away their “right” to own slaves. To any enlightened, 21st-century human being, it is abundantly apparent that sexual-orientation apartheid in the United States will eventually be cast on history’s stinking garbage heap. Gallagher, nonetheless, regularly defames LGBT Americans. She has likened her odious campaign against marriage equality to the fight against communism. She has asserted that if marriage equality becomes the law of the land, “we” will lose “American civilization.”
