Obama Gay & Abortion Agendas on Parade in Medals

The highest civilian award given in the United States, the Presidential Medal of Freedom was awarded this week by President Obama to 16 people, including: the first lesbian in space, Sally Ride (1951 - 2012); as well as Bayard Rustin (1912 - 1987), a sexually deviant African-American whose legacy has been rewritten by modern homosexualists as to equate "gay rights" to civil rights; and feminist Gloria Steinem, 79, who dedicated her medal to eugenicist and founder of Planned Parenthood Margaret Sanger.
“We are delighted that President Obama has chosen to award three pioneering leaders who helped to change America for the better.”
-- Rea Carey, executive director of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force

-- From "Presidential Medal of Freedom goes to 16 'true champions,' Obama says" by Michael Muskal and Katherine Skiba, Los Angeles Times 11/20/13

The White House described the winners as “individuals who have made especially meritorious contributions to the security or national interests of the United States, to world peace, or to cultural or other significant public or private endeavors.”

. . . the late Bayard Rustin who won fame as an organizer for events such as the 1963 march on Washington. He was also openly gay and paid a price in abuse from opponents and from some other black leaders who were allies on racial issues.

The late Sally Ride, the first American woman in space, was among the honorees. She didn't just break the stratospheric glass ceiling, “she blasted right through it,” the president said, noting how Ride changed a woman’s role.

The feminist writer and magazine founder [Gloria Steinem] was a crucial voice in establishing the modern feminist revolution which challenged male dominance in the business and political worlds and helped raise wages and dignity for women . . .

From "Remarks by the President at Presidential Medal of Freedom Ceremony" posted at 11/22/13

This medal has been bestowed on more than 500 deserving people. . . . And this morning, we’re honored to add 16 new names to this distinguished list.

. . . for decades, this great leader [Bayard Rustin], often at Dr. [Martin Luther] King’s side, was denied his rightful place in history because he was openly gay.  No medal can change that, but today, we honor Bayard Rustin’s memory by taking our place in his march towards true equality, no matter who we are or who we love. (Applause.) . . . Bayard Rustin was a giant in the American Civil Rights Movement.  Openly gay at a time when many had to hide who they loved, his unwavering belief that we are all equal members of a “single human family” took him from his first Freedom Ride to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender rights movement. . . .

Speaking of game-changers, disrupters, there was a young girl names Gloria Steinem who arrived in New York to make her mark as a journalist, and magazines only wanted to write articles like “How to Cook without Really Cooking for Men.”  (Laughter.)  Gloria noticed things like that.  (Laughter.) She’s been called a “champion noticer.”  She’s alert to all the ways, large and small, that women had been and, in some cases, continue to be treated unfairly just because they’re women. . . . A trailblazing writer and feminist organizer, Gloria Steinem has been at the forefront of the fight for equality and social justice for more than four decades. Instrumental to a broad range of initiatives and issues, from establishing Ms. Magazine and Take Our Daughters to Work Day, to pushing for women’s self-empowerment and an end to sex trafficking. She has promoted lasting political and social change in America and abroad.  Through her reporting and speaking, she has shaped debates on the intersection of sex and race, brought critical problems to national attention, and forged new opportunities for women in media.  Gloria Steinem continues to move us all to take up the cause of reaching for a more just tomorrow.  (Applause.)

From "Obama Honors Gay Socialist and Lesbian Astronaut" by Penny Starr, 11/21/13

On Bayard Rustin’s website, his lover and the executor of his estate, Walter Naegle, wrote about the gay activist’s life, including his 10-year homosexual relationship with the author and his national chairmanship of the Social Democrats USA, formerly the Socialist Party of America.

According to an Aug. 29 interview with Naegle on, the two men met in Times Square in 1977 when Naegle was 27 and Rustin was 65. According to Naegle, Rustin legally adopted him as a son, because they could not be married.

"Sally Ride, who died on Monday, can help put a face to a national problem. She was the first American woman and the youngest American ever to travel in space-the kind of accomplishment that automatically gets you the label of "inspiration for generations of young Americans" and an obit in the Times," said a blog in the New York Times when Ride died last year. "What's less well known is that Ms. Ride was gay. Family and friends were aware of her 27-year relationship with Tam O'Shaughnessy, but the wider public was not."

From "Gloria Steinem Says Her Medal of Freedom Will Honor 'Work of Margaret Sanger’" by Penny Starr, 11/18/13

“I hope that [the late Margaret Sanger] would celebrate this recognition that reproductive freedom is a human right at least as crucial as freedom of speech and that no government should dictate whether or when we have children,” Steinem said.

“I was reminded by Ellen Chesler, biography of Margaret Sanger, that President Lyndon Johnson, even as he signed the first federal and international family planning act into law, refused to bestow the metal of freedom on Sanger,” Steinem said. “He feared reprisal from the Catholic Church.

Sanger advocated birth control in part because she believed it was one way to stop the "unfit" from breeding.

“As an advocate of birth control, I wish to take advantage of the present opportunity to point out that the unbalance between the birth rate of the ‘unfit’ and the ‘fit,’ admittedly the greatest present menace to civilization, can never be rectified by the inauguration of a cradle competition between these two classes,” Sanger wrote in an article entitled "The Eugenic Value of Birth Control Propaganda," which appeared in the October 1921 edition of Birth Control Review.

From "‘If We Each Have a Torch, There’s a Lot More Light’: Gloria Steinem Accepts the Presidential Medal of Freedom" by Adele M. Stan, RH Reality Check 11/20/13

Steinem’s “a-ha moment,” the thing that spurred her to the world of activism, she said, was a reporting assignment to cover an “abortion speak-out,” a gathering where women who had had abortions, which were then illegal, told their stories.

“And then I had an epiphany, which was related to my own experience. … I realized that I had not told the truth about having [had] an abortion myself at 22, and why?” she asked the Press Club audience. “If one in three American women, approximately, has needed an abortion at sometime in her life, why not? What was secret about it? And then as soon as I started to speak about it … I discovered it was often part of other people’s experience, or their families’ experience.”

“A woman’s ability to decide whether or when to have a child is not a ‘social issue.’ It is a human right,” Steinem said. “It is the biggest indicator of whether she is educated or not, can work outside the home or not, is healthy or not, and how long she lives.”

“There is no president in history from whose hand I would be more honored to receive this medal,” she said [of Barack Obama].

From "Gloria Steinem Gets Medal of Freedom for Abortion Advocacy" by M. Catharine Evans, American Thinker 11/22/13

How fitting that abortion zealot and self-proclaimed Marxist Gloria Steinem received the Presidential Medal of Freedom on Wednesday from Barack Hussein Obama.  The male-bashing, anti-family, anti-American Steinem beamed as the guy who voted three times against a partial-birth abortion ban while in the Illinois state Senate placed the medal around her neck.

As one of the architects of the abortion holocaust, Steinem summed up her philosophy in a 2005 New York Observer interview.  The 71-year-old was asked what her advice to young women in the 21st century would be.  She replied, "To do whatever they f---ing well please."

. . . No one should underestimate Steinem's part in the murder of 55 million babies and counting.  Her mainstream good looks, media savvy, and Smith College degree landed her on talk shows, lecture circuits and magazines in the 1960s -- something the dowdy, militant-looking Shulasmith Firestone, leader of the Redstockings, could only dream about.  Steinem looked all-American, making her message more palatable to the masses.

Like Barack Obama, Gloria Steinem rejects the notion that all life is sacred.  She set out to kill the maternal conscience by persuading women that killing their babies was nothing, and he legislated the attack on mothers and children to the fullest extent possible.  She laid the groundwork; Obama brought it home.
