After the Ball
|Mein Kampf as a working model|
|“I have helped to create a truly fascist organization. We conspired to bring into existence an activist group that … could effectively exploit the media for its own ends, and that would work covertly and break the law with impunity…[W]e subscribed to consciously subversive modes, drawn largely from voluminious Mein Kampf, which some of us studied as a working model. As ACT-UP/DC grew, we struck intently and surgically into whatever institutions we believed to stand in our way.”|
After the Ball is the 1989 book by Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen, which has been the homosexual movement's marketing blueprint for the now global homosexual propaganda campaign to replace marriage-based society with a culture of sexual anarchy. The book is based on a November 1987 Guide magazine article titled "The Overhauling of Straight America", which was intended for homosexual activist eyes only, and is a remarkably frank summary of the book's thesis. It is regarded as a must-read for anyone who wants to understand the homosexual agenda. Although the After the Ball book, based on this outline, has become the LGBTI Mein Kampf or Communist Manifesto of homosexual propagandists, only the 1987 article states the homosexual goals and tactics with alarming frankness. Defenders of "The Overhauling of Straight America" have tried to minimize its impact, and even outright deceive the public about the truth of its contents, by publicly branding the article as "satire" and ridiculing anyone who takes it seriously, but few people are fooled by this attempt at LGBTI deceit, especially in the wake of recent events that have seen the homosexual agenda, with aid from sympathizers in politics, the courts, academia and the liberal media, make unprecedented gains at society's expense. The publication gave homosexuals in America the traction needed to bring about the "gay" revolution.
The 1987 article The Overhauling of Straight America basically outlines a program how to perform a LGBTI gleichchaltung in the society by adopting salami tactics (cf. "By this point, our salami tactics will have carved out, slice by slice, a large portion of access to the mainstream media.").
Desensitization of public opinion
The first order of business is desensitization of the American public concerning gays and gay rights. To desensitize the public is to help it view homosexuality with indifference instead of with keen emotion. Ideally, we would have straights register differences in sexual preference the way they register different tastes for ice cream or sports games: she likes strawberry and I like vanilla; he follows baseball and I follow football. No big deal. At least in the beginning, we are seeking public desensitization and nothing more. We do not need and cannot expect a full “appreciation” or “understanding” of homosexuality from the average American. You can forget about trying to persuade the masses that homosexuality is a good thing. But if only you can get them to think that it is just another thing, with a shrug of their shoulders, then your battle for legal and social rights is virtually won. And to get to shoulder-shrug stage, gays as a class must cease to appear mysterious, alien, loathsome and contrary. A large-scale media campaign will be required in order to change the image of gays in America. And any campaign to accomplish this turnaround should do six things:
- TALK ABOUT GAYS AND GAYNESS AS LOUDLY AND AS OFTEN AS POSSIBLE
- PORTRAY GAYS AS VICTIMS, NOT AS AGGRESSIVE CHALLENGERS
- GIVE PROTECTORS A JUST CAUSE
- MAKE GAYS LOOK GOOD
- MAKE THE VICTIMIZERS LOOK BAD
