The final installment of ABC’s ratings disaster When We Rise quietly ended Friday night with a victory and a warning. In the episode titled “Night IV,” the stabilization of the AIDS outbreak led to the charge for gay marriage. The success of California’s Proposition 8 – the state constitutional amendment that banned same sex marriage – lit a fire under the gay activists in San Francisco and led to the appeal going to the U.S. Supreme Court, ultimately changing marriage as we once knew it.
The slander of President Ronald Reagan’s legacy by liberal gay activists continues. After ignoring his influence in stopping California’s Prop 6 as governor, President Reagan is painted as a homophobe unwilling to acknowledge or help gays during the height of the AIDS crisis. This characterization of a conservative legend has been debunked but that still hasn’t stopped the liberal gay activists who choose to re-write history in the ABC gay propaganda miniseries When We Rise.
ABC's eight hour gay propaganda event When When Rise isn't afraid to go low. Monday night's episode immediately gets into the leftist activism with a montage bashing Republicans and comparing gay rights to the fight against Nazism and the Civil Rights movement - and it all goes down hill from there.
Ready to push its agenda whenever possible, ABC spent more than 20 minutes interviewing gay activist Dustin Lance Black, who was in Philly for the dedication of a new historic LGBT marker. But when the conversation turned to national security, Black’s comments were predictably liberal, touching on “diversity” and “making one with Muslim Americans.”
The activist and gay CNN columnist LZ Granderson met for ice cream at Philadelphia's oldest parlor, Franklin Fountain. As the two talked, Granderson's colleague asked Black to address a common question from viewers watching the live Facebook feed. "The relationship with your conversation here about the history of the LGBT community, uh, how does this fit into the national security debate that's currently going around in politics especially after what we saw unfortunately in Orlando recently?"
It’s no secret that ABC pushes the gay agenda. But if you doubt it, wait until its newest miniseries comes out (pun intended).
Authored by openly gay screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, When We Rise will detail the history of the gay rights movement from the 1969 Stonewall Riots to the present day. It follows the stories of three people who are also members of the women’s rights movement, the peace movement and the black rights movement. “It's When We Rise, not When Gay People Rise,” Black told Adweek. “It's about how everyone benefits when we lift up any one group in this country.” If you think it will be a neutral examination of one of the biggest rights movement of our time, think again.
Nobody can accuse the broadcast networks of objectivity when it comes to gay "rights."
ABC, CBS and NBC combined devoted nearly 11 minutes of air time during their evening and morning news shows to the May 26 California Supreme Court ruling that upheld Proposition 8, the 2008 state constitutional amendment that banned same-sex marriage. The networks gave gay rights activists more than seven minutes of air time, through interviews and footage of their protests, while they gave Prop 8 supporters less than one minute to talk about their victory.
