WASHINGTON, D.C. (LifeSiteNews) – The head of the nation’s largest, most powerful pro-LGBT lobbying organization has been fired for the role he played in helping his previous employer, now-disgraced former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, discredit one of his sexual assault victims.  

Yesterday’s ousting of Alphonso David as president of the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) not only reveals not only the hypocrisy of an organization purportedly dedicated to ‘human rights’ and combatting discrimination and harassment, it also blows wide open the lie about the organization’s primary purpose. Purported LGBT ‘rights’ are a cover for what is nothing more than a propaganda arm of the Democratic Party’s establishment.     

David, once celebrated as HRC’s first black president, was terminated on Monday by HRC’s board of directors “for cause” –– implying that the board had reason to believe that David was guilty of serious error or grave misconduct –– in what is described as a unanimous decision aside from two abstentions.   

A bombshell report issued by New York Attorney General Letitia James last month showed that in December 2020, Cuomo’s top aides had enlisted HRC’s David, who previously served as Cuomo’s chief counsel and principal legal advisor, to hand over a confidential personnel file of Cuomo accuser, Lindsey Boylan. 

Cuomo aides then leaked the file to media outlets, including the Associated Press, The New York Times, The New York Post, New York Daily News, the Hill, and CBS.  Cuomo’s team sought to retaliate against Boylan because she had declared on Twitter that the New York governor was “one of the biggest abusers of all time.” 

Do you see who these people are?

Glenn Greenwald, one of the nation’s leading truth-telling political journalists and who self-identifies as ‘gay,’ fired off a fusillade of Tweets exposing the true nature of HRC: 

“The head of HRC — the lavishly funded Democratic Party propaganda arm that masquerades as an LGBT advocacy group — got caught helping ex-Gov. Cuomo leak personnel files of his accuser to the media and now depicts himself as the victim, refusing internal demands that he resign,” began Greenwald.  

 ****

“Remember when, in 2016, Bernie said that he thought HRC and Planned Parenthood — which had endorsed Hillary — were part of ‘the Democratic establishment’ and Dem establishment mavens pretended to be angry and offended as it if weren’t indisputably true?” he asked.  

This HRC group is a pure embodiment of swampy DC sleaze,” explained Greenwald.  

“They are funded overwhelmingly by the largest banks and corporations, with a few gay oligarchs thrown in for good measure,” he continued.   

“They take in *$50 million a year*. For what? Who is helped? It’s just a Dem Party front group.” 

“Just a repulsive joke of an organization. Putting ‘Human Rights Campaign’ in its title and then bestowing awards like this on Raytheon, then taking its money. Pure sleaze. I hope Alphonso David stays as its Executive Director:  makes their values clear,” said Greenwald. 

 


“President of the Teacher’s Union defending HRC Executive Director Alphonso David — of course — even after he got caught helping ex-Gov. Cuomo leak personnel files to the media to smear one of his accusers.”    

“Do you see who these people are???” he asked of the Twitterverse.

The brazen hypocrisy of HRC and other Democrat ‘rights’ groups  

The drama between HRC and its now former head shines a harsh spotlight on progressive non-profit ‘rights’ groups as not only rife with hypocrisy, but as more regressive than progressive.    

“Alphonso David, who’s the actual culprit, releasing an accuser’s personnel files as a slimy means of discrediting her when Cuomo was on the hot seat, which happened in his previous job as chief counsel to Cuomo, refused to blame himself at all, and put out a tweet claiming victimhood,” explained American Thinker’s Monica Showalter.  

“He apparently has no shame at all and his response is ridiculous.”

Hungary recently took a major step to protect children from having their innocence destroyed and being sexualized by LGBT propaganda in schools and by pornography in the mass media.

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition which expresses agreement and respect for the wishes of the sovereign nation of Hungary to protect its children against the onslaught of LGBT indoctrination propaganda and pornography.

Since passage of the bill the fake news outlets from Europe to America have predictably begun to fabricate outrage and, or, simply lie about the contents of the bill. And, the corrupt European Union has also now started to attack Hungary's efforts to protect children.

For doing the hard and good thing, Hungary now needs our support.

The bill, which was passed last week, specifically prohibits showing pornographic material or content portraying homosexuality or transgenderism to minors under the age of 18. Other measures include a registry of sex offenders, regulations on sexual education, and stronger policies against child pornography.

This policy is to be welcomed as a pro-active measure against the liberal and LGBT propaganda machine which is steadily encroaching on Hungary's borders, and which threatens to tear down Christian civilization altogether.

Indeed, the same week that this law was passed in Hungary, Vienna's (Austria) deputy mayor distributed "Rainbow Family" information boxes to 350 kindergartens in the Austrian capital. And, Vienna is only about 50 miles from the Hungarian border! 

But, never satisfied with corrupting the children of their own countries, LGBT activists and their accomplices in the EU have been quick to castigate Hungary, claiming that the Budapest government has "discriminated" against homosexuals with their law to protect children, and in doing so, has violated EU law.

However, Hungary's Justice Minister, Judit Varga, set the record straight in an interview with Hungarian journalists, stating:

"This is one of a number of declarations declaring certain Hungarian measures to be contrary to EU law without a thorough examination. The fake news that has taken wing in these statements is completely unfounded.

In Hungary's view, the legislation has nothing to do with EU law. The issue of subsidiarity and constitutional, national identity is a matter for the Member States. Furthermore, the European Charter of Human Rights also says that a parent has the right to determine the direction of their children's development in a culturally traditional background."

And, more broadly, Viktor Orbán, Hungary's Prime Minister, had this to say about Hungary's new law:

"The current left-wing campaign against Hungary is further proof that today, the left is the enemy of freedom, because instead of freedom of speech, they want political correctness as defined by them, and hegemony of opinion instead of a pluralism of ideas.

The new Hungarian law does not conflict with any lofty ideals or European laws. The new Hungarian law simply states clearly that only parents can decide on the sexual education of their children. Education in schools must not be in conflict with the will of parents; it must at most be supplementary, its form and content must be clearly defined and it must be subject to parental consent.

Parents also rightly expect that on platforms used by our children, pornography, sexuality for its own sake, homosexuality and gender reassignment programs should not be available. These restrictions must also be defined with surgical precision. In Hungary, no one has a say in how adults live their lives. In our view, a free adult should not have to give an account of his life in front of any secular authority — only before God when the time comes."

Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition which supports the government of Hungary in their passage of this pro-active child protection measure banning LGBT propaganda and pornography for under-18s.

Thank you!

Showalter pointed out three things that “leap out” with these “crash-and-burn incidents:

  • One, the hypocrisy of these leftwing foundation-supported NGOs is monumental, hectoring the public, giving out awards to themselves, holding star-studded galas, getting oodles of uncritical press, showing up on television, and all the while doing exactly what they claim they don’t want others to do. It’s kind of like the FBI manufacturing “crimes” through informants while being the main perpetrator of the actual crimes that drew the arrests.  
  • Two, a lot of these sanctimonious big-name, big-dollar leftwing NGOs with big foundation and corporate cash seem to have this kind of moral turpitude. The Lincoln Project discredited itself with a founder who was sexually harassing young males while certainly some of the others knew about it. Like these other organizations, they didn’t disband in the wake of the scandal, they just carried on as if the news cycle would memory-hole the matter. They were wrong. All anyone can think of when this group’s name is brought up is the pervy stuff they haven’t sufficiently atoned for as they spread their leftwing message. And there are signs, as I noted here, that their funding is now withering away and drying up.
     
  • Three, and this is the big one: These characters involved in this Cuomo scandal are all people who’ve been standard stalwarts and aides in Democrat politics. 

HRC responsible for Facebook’s banning of LifeSiteNews 

In May it was revealed that under David’s direction, the Human Rights Campaign had joined Media Matters for America, GLAAD, and NARAL Pro-Choice America to strong-arm Facebook into permanently banning LifeSiteNews. 

HRC then published on its website a joint statement by the four powerful anti-life, anti-marriage, anti-family, and anti-human dignity social influencers boasting of their takedown of LifeSiteNews and vowing to do more to further silence LifeSite’s pro-life messaging.
