The medium, stories about everyday Americans that the globalist ignore.

Speaker 2 (02:05):
You can think of Red Pilled America as audio documentaries,
and we promise only one thing, the truth. Welcome to
Red Pilled America. We're at the finale of our series

of episodes entitled Trojan Rainbow. If you haven't heard part one,
stop and go back and listen. From the beginning. We're
looking for the answer to the question, how did Pride
Month become ubiquitous by telling the story of the rise
of the pride movement and how a seminole battle led
to its going mainstream. So to pick up where we

left off, By the end of nineteen seventy three, the
alphabet movement was on a roll. Gay activists successfully bully
the American Psychiatric Association into removing homosexuality from its list
of mental disorders without a single long term scientific study
being performed to justify the removal. Gay activists continued on offense,

lobbying locally to end antisodomy laws in a few states,
But with all the gay pride upheaval happening in major
cities like New York City, San Francisco, Chicago, Washington, d C.
And Los Angeles, nothing would catapult the effort to normalize homosexuality.
Like a small group of gay activists in Miami. They'd
make a direct attack against the last standing resistance to

their movement, the faith based community, by targeting the one
group that was previously off limits, the children. By the
summer of nineteen seventy six, the gay population of Florida's
Miami Dade County had fully blossomed. The wealthy white gay
men of the area had little practical need for non
discrimination protections. They had their entirely own ecosystem, their own bars,

their own stace, society clubs, their own bathhouses, their own magazines,
movie theaters, and even beaches. They had an entirely parallel
economy that they could flourish within. And besides, most Miamians
were either unaware of or simply ignored this gay circuit.
As one writer at the time put it in a
local entertainment magazine, quote by day, unnoticed gay doctors, lawyers,

and school teachers go about their jobs, while more flamboyant
artists and decorators go quite visibly about their rounds. Slim
tanned young men in brief bathing suits crew's favorite beaches.
Other young men languidly sun themselves in public parks. In
other words, the Miami gay community had it good. There

was no overbearing oppression that would ignite a revolt, leading
some within their community to believe that gay activism igniting
in Miami would happen when hell froze over well, a
few local gay movers and shakers wanted to try and
make it snow in hades. They looked to nudge homosexuality
into the mainstream by launching a direct attack on the

community's Christian population. The instigator of this effort was a
Miami entrepreneur named Jack Campbell. Jack owned a national chain
of more than forty outfits he branded as health clubs.

In actuality, they were gay bathhouses or private clubs, were
homosexual men met for sex. In July nineteen seventy six,
Jack invited a group of prominent Miami gays and lesbians
to his sprawling home in the Coconut Grove area of Miami,
a wealthy gay beach enclave. The gathered group wanted to
push for legislation that would ultimately force local parochial private

schools to hire openly homosexual teachers if they were otherwise
qualified for the job, and to do it, these gay
activists decided to take a tried and true approach. The
black and women's liberation movements had success by positioning their
causes as civil rights issues. These Miami activists decided to
take the same angle. They formed a political lobbying organization

called the Dade County Coalition for the Human Rights of Gays,
and they went on the hunt for local politicians that
would be friendly to their cause. The group distributed two
hundred questionnaires to Miami politicos to find people to support.
They eventually backed forty nine candidates, and in the November

nineteen seventy six election, over ninety percent of the candidates
they backed won their elections. A gay political action model
was born. Shortly after the election, the group put their
plan into motion. They turned to one of their winners,
a woman named Ruth Shack, and asked her to sponsor
what they positioned as a human rights ordinance. At the time,

similar ordinances had quietly passed in a small number of
cities throughout the United States, in California, Michigan, New York, Washington,
d C, Minnesota, and Oregon. Jack Campbell's Human Rights for
Gays group wanted to do their own version. A member
of Jack's activist group, a guy named Bob Kunsk, helped
draft the ordinance. The group then took a draft of

the law to a local candidate they'd gotten elected, Ruth Shack,
and immediately after her victory, she announced her sponsorship of
the Miami ordinance.

Speaker 7 (07:34):
A bomb dropped on Dade County in the form of
an ordinance offered by metro Commissioner Ruth Shack that would
prohibit discrimination in the areas of housing, public accommodations, and
employment against persons based on their affectional or sexual preference.

Speaker 8 (07:50):
Need was demonstrated to the Community Relations Board.

Speaker 1 (07:53):
But not all of Ruth Shack's campaign backers supported the ordinance,
including a woman named Anita Bryant. At the time, Anita
Bryant had been a beloved national symbol of traditional American values.
Born in Barnsdall, Oklahoma, in March nineteen forty, from a
young age, Anita was steeped in the hymns of her

parents Christian faith. As she came of age, her chestnut
colored hair, large expressive brown eyes, and warm, inviting smile
where the epitome of the all American beauty portrayed on
the big screen. But growing up in the Midwest, Anita
was far from the amplifying lens of Hollywood, so her
path to stardom took a different route. She showed an

early flare for performing singing in her church and school choirs,
honing a talent that would ultimately take her far beyond
the dusty plains of Oklahoma. In nineteen fifty eight, Anita's
beauty led her to winning the Miss Oklahoma pageant. The
following year, she won second runner up in the Miss
America pageant, and in the process, she received nationwide exposure

for her voice. Capitalizing on her moment, Anita pursued a
career in music. In nineteen sixty, her single Paper Roses
reached the number five spot on Billboard's Hot one hundred chart.
Anita was on her way. That same year, her personal

life also experienced an upgrade. In June nineteen sixty, she
married Bob Green, a Miami disc jockey and a fellow Christian.
Bryan's wholesome image and clear motive voice led to a
series of successful albums in the early nineteen sixties. As
she nurtured her music career, she also embarked on the
journey of motherhood. Anita and Bob welcomed their first child,

a daughter, in nineteen sixty two. As the couple started
their family, Anita's vocal talent and wholesome Christian persona began
to resonate with an even larger audience, which opened doors
to commercial opportunities. Anita would s for Coca Cola.

Speaker 9 (10:01):
What King Size refreshment, Sure you do well?

Speaker 10 (10:04):
King Size Cooke cas Well for.

Speaker 11 (10:06):
You King side Polkas.

Speaker 1 (10:08):
Then a housewife, favorite would tap her voice.

Speaker 11 (10:11):
My Mama duntld me, She told me, Hum, we're having
a party, a tougherware party.

Speaker 1 (10:26):
As her fame grew, Bob Hope invited Anita to be
part of his Christmas special singing for American troops deployed
in Vietnam. Anita was becoming known as the wholesome wife
and mother that sung patriotic songs. Her reputation as America's
ideal woman was cemented when she became the spokeswoman for

Florida's Citrus Commission in nineteen sixty nine, appearing in advertisements
that familiarized her face and voice with households all across America.

Speaker 12 (10:55):
People are telling me our is juice from Florida.

Speaker 13 (10:58):
Isn't just for breakfast anymore.

Speaker 1 (11:00):
By the close of the nineteen sixties, she added three
more children to their conservative Christian family. Perhaps surprising to
Americans today, Anita Bryant was a registered Democrat and had
become such a beloved figure that, at the request of
President Lyndon B. Johnson himself, she was asked to sing
at his funeral in nineteen seventy three. By the time

nineteen seventy six rolled along. Anita Bryant was a revered
national symbol of the American Christian family. So when gay
activists began pushing for a law that would force parochial
schools in her hometown to hire homosexual teachers, Anita was
presented with the dilemma. Up until that point, she did
little in the vein of controversial political activism. She'd spent

most of her career appealing to a wide general audience,
so when people within her church group asked her to
speak out against the proposed gay ordinance, she was hesitant.
Anita had financial obligations. Her family lived in a six
bedroom mansion in upscale Miami Beach. She was no doubt
aware that America was fighting a radical cultural revolution, a

revolution the entertainment industry embraced any involvement in politics could
impact her work on TV, and it wasn't just the
little screen. Anita made a big portion of her income
from live events, and it just so happened that her
booking agent, Richard Shack, was married to the woman who
sponsored the gay ordinance, Ruth Shack. Anita had even donated

to Ruth's election campaign, so she had a lot to
lose by speaking out. But as much as she resisted
getting involved in politics, this proposed ordinance was an issue
that hit too close to home. Anita's children were in
Christian private schools, the types of institutions being directly targeted
by the ordinance. Anita believed that by a lie allowing

homosexuals to be role models for kids, it would rip
apart the moral fabric of America for generations to come,
so she decided to first take a baby step against
the proposed law. Shortly after the ordinance was announced, Anita
called her booking agent's wife, Ruth Shack, and told her
she was embarrassed and sorely disappointed that somewhat she'd supported

was proposing an ordinance that would directly attack her religious liberty.
Anita asked Ruth to drop her support of the ordinance.
Ruth declined and snapped back by comparing the plight of
Gaze to that of Jews during the Holocaust. Anita responded
by reading Leviticus twenty thirteen from the Old Testament, the

passage that condemned homosexuality, and told Ruth that if she
decided to move forward with the ordinance, she'd have to
oppose Ruth's effort, but Ruth Shack ignored Anita's demand and
pushed the ordinance forward anyway. On December seventh, nineteen seventy six,

Ruth voted with four other colleagues on the amendment. It
passed with little opposition. That's when Anita Bryant stepped it
up a notch. With her career, social status and fame
on the line. Anita penned an open letter to the
Metro Commission voting on the ordnance, stating, quote, if this
Ordinance amendment is allowed to become law, you will in

fact be infringing upon my rights, or rather discriminating against
me as a citizen and as a mother, to teach
my children and set examples and to point to others
as examples of God's moral code as stated in the
Holy scriptures end quote. But the open letter fell on
deaf ears. On January eighteenth, nineteen seventy seven, Miami's Metro

Commission held a final public hearing, after which they would
vote on whether to make the new ordinance law.

Speaker 14 (15:05):
Debate over the controversial ordinance prohibiting discrimination in housing, employment,
and public accommodations against persons based on their sexual preferences
drew the largest crowd of citizens ever seen of a
Metro Commission public caring. On one side, several church organizations
spoke in opposition to the proposed ordinance, while an equal
number of proponents voiced their opinions. The issue attracted two

national notables. Chicago baseball coach Alvin Dock and singer Anita Bryant,
both opposed the gay anti bias law.

Speaker 7 (15:33):
Singing Orange Juice advocate Anita Bryant says, quote, God has
put a burden on her heart to crusade against the ordinance.

Speaker 13 (15:41):
I believe I have that right that I can and
do say no to a very serious moral issue that
would violate my rights and the rights of all the
decent and morally upstanding citizens, regardless of their race or religion.

Speaker 14 (15:56):
After two and a half hours of Hutt arguments sprinkled
with amen's and bruised, the Commission voted five to three
in favor of the ordinance. Opponents shout at recall threats
after commissioners, while proponts smiled in victory.

Speaker 1 (16:08):
Miami became the center of the gay normalization movement, the
same city that some believed would spark a homosexual revolution.
When hell froze over, the doubters were actually only off
by twenty four hours. The following day, for the first
and only time in recorded history, it snowed in Miami.

Speaker 2 (16:38):
It's time to treat yourself to the Licorice Guy. You
guys should know by now that I love licorice and
doesn't get any better than the gourmet licorice made by
the Licorice Guy. They have a great selection of flavors
to choose from, like red, blue, raspberry, black green apple,
just to name a few. The freshness of the licorice
is unlike anything you've ever tasted in licorice before. If

you haven't tried licorice from the Licorice Guy, then you
ain't living life right. It's time to dump that store
bought liquorice that's hard enough to break your teeth and
get yourself the soft, fresh stuff from the Liquorice Guy.
What I also love about the Licorice Guy is that
it's an American family owned business. It's made right here
in the beautiful US of A. We are big proponents
of buying American and supporting American workers. Right now, red

Pilled America listeners get fifteen percent off when you enter
RPA fifteen at checkout, Visit licoriceguide dot com and enter
RPA fifteen at checkout. That's licoricegui dot com. They ship daily.
Treat yourself and those you love, and taste the difference.

Speaker 1 (17:40):
Welcome back to red pilled America. So after a heated
debate in January nineteen seventy seven, the Miami Metro Commission
voted to approve a controversial ordinance that allowed openly homosexual
people to teach at parochial elementary schools. The reaction from
the faith based community was loud and decisive.

Speaker 15 (17:59):
One provision of the law that disturbs those who oppose
it is the right for anyone, regardless of sexual preference,
to teach in private or parochial schools if they are
otherwise qualified.

Speaker 16 (18:09):
This is one of the most dangerous pieces of legislation
that has ever been produced in the state of Florida.

Speaker 17 (18:14):
I am absolutely distressed that men and women who have
been elected officials would claim to represent the people and
promote this kind of immorality.

Speaker 18 (18:22):
There's no way that a homosexual would ever teach. A
known homosexual would ever teach at Northwest Christian Academy just
like there's no way that a prostitute would ever teach,
a known prostitute would ever teach, are a known drunk
would ever teach because their scriptural prohibitions divine prohibitions against
these types of sins. We're not running down the homosexual

We're simply saying that there are God's laws against homosexuality
that we must obey as His people.

Speaker 14 (18:50):
The ordinance becomes law in ten days, when a religious
group headed by Anita Bryant said it will definitely begin
a petition drive to repeal the law.

Speaker 1 (18:59):
At the urgent who her pastor, Anita launched a group
called Save Our Children to repeal the ordinance.

Speaker 12 (19:05):
The overwhelming majority of the constituents of Dade County are
against this moral issue, and in particular that it concerns
our children. In the organization which we formed after the
courtroom hearing, the public hearing says it all save our children.
We do not want our children subjected to this kind
of a role model.

Speaker 15 (19:25):
The fight against the county law on gay rights moved
to some twenty day County churches.

Speaker 19 (19:30):
Today it could.

Speaker 20 (19:31):
Be called Anita's Army.

Speaker 21 (19:32):
About fifty percent of the volunteers working in the Save
Our Children headquarters attend Anita Bryant's church. The law protecting
the rights of gay teachers applies only to private schools
like this one. Miss Bryant says, if the law is
not repealed, public schools would eventually have to hire homosexual
teachers too.

Speaker 1 (19:51):
The ordinance not only violated the holy scriptures of the
faith based community, it also violated their First Amendment right
to freely practice their religion without government interference. So religious
leaders spoke out.

Speaker 7 (20:04):
The Catholic Church, through Archbishop Coleman Carroll, has taken a
firm stand opposing the ordinance. That view is upheld by
the Orthodox Jewish congregations, as stated here by Rabbi Thinius Weberman,
who is against the ordinance.

Speaker 22 (20:18):
We also, as part of our religious teachings and miral teachings,
consider homosexuality or any other kind of sexual perversion and abomination,
and this puts us in a very difficult predicament. If
we would be forced to hire somebody who specifically states

that he engages in perversion and sexual perversion to have
these people teach our children, we'd be in a contradictory position.

Speaker 1 (20:49):
The gay activists were smart. They enlisted a few fringe
religious leaders that disregarded their holy scriptures so that they
could falsely portray that there was a debate within the
faith based community.

Speaker 7 (21:00):
Read by Joseph Narrat of Temple Israel of Greater Miami
supports the gay rights issue.

Speaker 22 (21:06):
Discrimination against anyone for whatever reason he's unconstitutional.

Speaker 7 (21:10):
Reverend Albert Schmidt of Grace Lutheran Church, Miami Springs is
in favor of the gay rights ordinance.

Speaker 16 (21:16):
The church should receive the homosexual into its fellowship from
the same understanding and forgiveness that it receives every human being,
because every human being is a sinner.

Speaker 1 (21:27):
But just over a few weeks, Anita Bryant Save our
Children campaign gainsteam, easily surpassing the ten thousand signature requirement
for a referendum.

Speaker 14 (21:35):
A large suitcase bulging with petitions were turned over through
the Clerk's office for certification.

Speaker 7 (21:40):
Save Our Children collected sixty two thousand petitioned signatures, forcing
the ordinance to be put before the public for a vote,
giving the people a chance to repeal or retain it.

Speaker 14 (21:50):
Carl Gable City Commissioner Robert Brakes said it took only
twenty five days to obtain the required signatures of voters
in the county, the.

Speaker 1 (21:56):
Issue would be put to a public vote. On June seventh,
nineteen seventy.

Speaker 14 (22:00):
Seven, during a news conference, MS Bryant said, the big
war against Dade County politicians is well underway.

Speaker 12 (22:07):
Unfortunately, the battle that we won today is only that
a battle. The war goes on to save our children
because the seed of sexual sickness that germinated in Dade
County has already been transplanted by misguided liberals in the
US Congress.

Speaker 1 (22:24):
Anita Bryant believed that the gay community was attempting to
connect with kids at a young age to indoctrinate them
into their lifestyle.

Speaker 23 (22:31):
Just biologic.

Speaker 12 (22:34):
Reproduced biology they have to reproduce by recruiting our children.

Speaker 3 (22:41):
Well, Save our Children's group is appealing to parental anxieties,
saying gays will faunt their homosexuality before impressionable children.

Speaker 7 (22:49):
The homosexuals are gays immediately began their counter attack, demanding
equal rights and human rights for a minority group.

Speaker 1 (22:57):
Bob Konst, one of the original gay activists at help
draft the new law, became the unofficial spokesman of support
for the ordinance. He countered Anita arguing that the gay
community had no intention of pushing its lifestyle on kids.

Speaker 19 (23:16):
We're not educating our kids about homosexuality.

Speaker 15 (23:18):
She's doing it. We're not talking about anything. If anything,
we've kept a very low profile on the whole business.

Speaker 24 (23:23):
But we're not about to be intimidated by her.

Speaker 1 (23:25):
Anita Bryant pushed back hard. She believed that the gay
community was using human rights as a ruse, a kind
of trojan horse, to influence America's youth.

Speaker 12 (23:34):
Anyone has a right to be a homosexual, It's a choice.
We are saying that there are no human rights to
correct our children.

Speaker 9 (23:41):
I believe that more than ever before, that there are
evil forces round about us, even perhaps disguised as something good,
that would want to tear down the very foundation of
the family unit that holds an Erica to gain.

Speaker 1 (24:02):
Anita Bryant even took to the debate stage against Bob
koontzt arguing that homosexual teachers would negatively influence America's vulnerable youth.

Speaker 12 (24:10):
We talk about the danger of the homosexual becoming a
role model to our children, and I'm not talking necessarily
of child molestation in the physical. I'm talking about the psychological,
which is even more detrimental and would have far reaching
effects on our children, on our nation.

Speaker 1 (24:27):
Bob Kootz responded, arguing that there was nothing in their
ordinance it would allow gay teachers to promote their lifestyle
to kids.

Speaker 18 (24:34):
It has nothing to do with sex acts whatsoever.

Speaker 19 (24:37):
Strictly allows all people, gay, bisexual, and heterosexual the right
to a job and the right to our house based on.

Speaker 15 (24:46):
Affectional and sexual preference. It has nothing to do with
sex acts whatsoever.

Speaker 1 (24:55):
The media did its part to pick up the human
rights wonstra of the gay community while ignoring the real
religious liberty position of Anita Bryant.

Speaker 21 (25:02):
Campaign headquarters of the Gays. They are fighting to keep
the law, which they say involves human rights.

Speaker 1 (25:09):
Human rights, and the gay activists had more than just
the media on their side. You see, Bob Koontz and
his team understood that this local fight could go national,
so they brought in national gay organizations to help with
fundraising and organizing. Then, to ensure the issue would go national,

they redirected Anita Bryant's fame just like a jiu jitsu master,
to garner national attention.

Speaker 25 (25:34):
The human rights referendum on June seventh is a major
news story nationwide, It's difficult to pick up a national
magazine without reading something about Dade's upcoming election and gay rights.
The CBA and the television networks have something to.

Speaker 17 (25:49):
Say the battle over homosexual rights and Dade County, Florida.
The battle pitting singer Anita Bryant against gay rights activists
comes to a vote their Tuesday. The issue is whether
or not to repeal a four month old ordinance which
prohibits job and housing discrimination against homosexuals.

Speaker 1 (26:07):
In the home stretch to voting day, June seventh, nineteen
seventy seven, the temperature on the streets of Miami began to.

Speaker 7 (26:13):
Rise as the controversy over what has become known as
the Gay Rights Ordinance increased, and the charges against both
the advocates and the Save our Children people heated up.
A do or die campaign went into high gear.

Speaker 26 (26:25):
If you allow one, just one human thing, to be
allowed to have his rights taken away from him as
a human, say Sampal, you don't have any right when
it come to take away your rights, because if you
they screw you to them. They they screw you to you,
and six million more Jews wind up in a toilet
and I'm not.

Speaker 14 (26:42):
Going to wind up with them.

Speaker 7 (26:43):
Bumper stickers began appearing, along with full page ads in
the newspaper. Workers at campaign headquarters for both sides began
the numerous calls soliciting funds so sure.

Speaker 25 (26:54):
As were prepared, nobody can accurately predict the outcome of
the human rights question here before to day's election.

Speaker 1 (27:03):
Finally, voting day arrived.

Speaker 27 (27:06):
Singer Anita Bryant's well publicized emotional crusade to repeal Dade
County's gay rights law ended. At the voting booth. Today,
three hundred thousand Miamians, a much larger turnout than expected, voted.
Many believed Miami Beach's liberal voters would swing the election
for the gay rights cause, but Anita Bryant has rallied
thousands of fundamentalists Christians to her side for a strong

anti homosexual counterattack.

Speaker 12 (27:29):
Now, the Christian community have never been involved in any
political controversial issue, and they're not only involved, but they're committed,
and they're not only going to they've not only been
working very hard, but they're going to come out and
vote today.

Speaker 1 (27:42):
As the votes were being cast, Bob Kunst remained confident
that the gay ordinance would stand.

Speaker 19 (27:49):
There's no way.

Speaker 1 (27:50):
But Anita Bryant was equally as confident. As the results
started trickling in, the winner quickly became clear.

Speaker 28 (28:07):
And the vote is going now eighteen nine hundred and
thirty for repeal, eighty eight hundred and sixty nine against repeal.
That's climb now to sixty eight percent of the actual
vote for repeal. The virgil. Is that enough with ten
percent in for you to make a projection? Yes, I
think very definitely that the ordinance.

Speaker 5 (28:26):
Is going to be repealed.

Speaker 28 (28:28):
With this margin, it's over. So the people I've spoken,
they spoke very clear, very loud.

Speaker 27 (28:34):
It was a decisive end to Day County's homosexual controversy.
Two hundred thousand Miamians told their elected officials they wanted
no part of the law which protects homosexuals in jobs
and housing. It was an emotional issue and the number
of voters who turned out set a record for a
special election.

Speaker 21 (28:53):
The strongest vote against the homosexuals was in the Cuban community.
The Black's middle class, white blue collar recincts, and upper
middle class areas helped repeal the ordinance by more than
two to one. Support for the gaye was mainly limited
to the Jewish community in Miami Beach and the Coconut
Grove section where many homosexuals live and work.

Speaker 27 (29:13):
A need of Bryan's leadership to defeat the law generated
the national attention tonight.

Speaker 12 (29:18):
The laws of God and the cultural values of man
have been vindicated. I thank God for the strengths he
has given me and my family, and I especially thank
my fellow citizens who joined me in what at first
was a walk through the wilderness. The people of Dade County,
the normal majority, have said enough enough enough.

Speaker 27 (29:43):
In victory last night, she talked about taking her anti
gay campaign on the road.

Speaker 12 (29:47):
We have already been contacted by many communities and individuals
all across the nation who have similar problems in are
concerned and won our health.

Speaker 19 (29:57):
It's all the issual leave Miami to be thrashed out
on a national level by Congress. Are the currents of
vile people.

Speaker 2 (30:05):
The gay community soundly lost in Miami, but even in defeat,
the beginnings of a national political movement had formed.

Speaker 29 (30:17):
To see.

Speaker 2 (30:17):
From the beginning, Bob Koons's group enlisted national gay organizations
to get involved with the effort, not just to defend
the Miami ordinance, but to prepare for a wider fight
for the normalization of homosexuality. This was the moment that

gay became a household topic, and the homosexual community had
a plan in motion. They understood that similar ordinances in
other cities would be challenged, so first they had to
organize in every state in the country to push their
gay agenda. But they knew that they were outnumbered, so
they had to send a warning shot to anyone that

was considering resisting their effort. In the wake of the
defeat Miami, one gay activist introduced this approach.

Speaker 17 (31:09):
We're going to let them know that Anita Bryant and
any other Christian Vegas have stepped on the wrong minority,
because we will fight back.

Speaker 30 (31:16):
We won't go back in our closets anymore.

Speaker 2 (31:19):
Early on in the Miami fight, gay activists and their
allies decided to make an example of Anita Bryant by
attacking her livelihood. Richard Shack was Anita's booking agent, and
remember he was also the husband of Ruth Shack, the
politician that sponsored the gay ordinance. Anita made a huge

portion of her income performing at state fairs, which mister
Shack booked well In a move that sent a message
to the entire entertainment industry, mister Shack publicly dumped Anita
as his client, claiming that he could no longer represent
someone who so badly maligned what he believed in. Gay
activists and their allies set their sights on another major

source of Anita's income, her job as a spokeswoman for
the Florida Citrus Commission. Anita had been the face of
the Florida orange industry for almost a decade. If the
activists could wage a successful campaign against the fruit, it
would diminish her value to that industry, so they launched
a boycott effort. Gay activists started a letter writing campaign

to the Florida Citrus Commission demanding they fire Anita. She
immediately felt the pressure.

Speaker 12 (32:35):
They're coming attacking my livelihood and it's undermined a tenure
relationship with Florida Citrus.

Speaker 2 (32:42):
Of goodwill, Gay activists began puncturing orange juice containers. They
made songs urging the public to dump the fruit drink.
Gay bars even stopped serving screwdrivers, a popular cocktail made
from vodka an orange juice, and that's where Hollywood joined in.

At the time, Tinseltown already had a gay normalization campaign
under way a few months before the Miami vote. Three's
Company hit American TV sets. The show featured a character
named Jack Tripper who is looking for a place to live.
The series addressed the gay ordinances in a roundabout way.
In the debut episode, two beautiful single women roommates Janet

and Chrissy fall in love with Jack's cooking and ask
him to be their roommate. But when Jack introduces himself
to the ladies landlord mister Roper, mister Roper refuses to
allow a man to live with two single women in
his building.

Speaker 6 (33:43):
This is our.

Speaker 22 (33:43):
Landlord, Tripper, Jack Tripper, I'm moving on to one.

Speaker 26 (33:46):
I saw was completely Oh no, you're not.

Speaker 27 (33:48):
I'm not.

Speaker 4 (33:49):
Are you crazy moving in with two girls?

Speaker 31 (33:50):
Not my ro I'll be strictly platonic, but I don't
care what it is.

Speaker 2 (33:54):
Jack leaves upset to get dressed, but when he returns
to give mister Roper a piece of his mind.

Speaker 5 (34:01):
Mister Roper, I have something I want to tell you.

Speaker 12 (34:02):
I wouldn't live under your roof for.

Speaker 32 (34:04):
All the time.

Speaker 33 (34:04):
Ride son Johanna just explained it to us.

Speaker 17 (34:07):
I'm sorry.

Speaker 23 (34:08):
I misjudged you. Oh, you can move in.

Speaker 24 (34:12):
It's all right.

Speaker 2 (34:13):
Oh, mister Roper is now strangely fine with Jack living
with the girls once the landlord exits. Janet explains how
she was able to convince the landlord to let Jack
live with them.

Speaker 30 (34:25):
How did he get him to change his mind?

Speaker 21 (34:27):

Speaker 29 (34:29):
I just convinced him that nothing would happen between Jack
and us.

Speaker 34 (34:33):
How did you do that?

Speaker 23 (34:34):

Speaker 6 (34:35):
I told him that Jack was a.

Speaker 13 (34:36):
Decent, respectable, hard working young man.

Speaker 12 (34:40):
And that did it.

Speaker 35 (34:41):
Not quite.

Speaker 9 (34:42):
I also told him that you were gay.

Speaker 2 (34:45):
In other words, the landlord was allowing Jack to live
in the apartment because he was homosexual. For the duration
of the series, Jack Tripper is a lovable, harmless, faux
gay man, and in the process, tinsel Town was subtly
normalizing homosexual Already aligned with the gay community, Hollywood joined

in on the effort to destroy Anita's career day lampoond
On Saturday.

Speaker 34 (35:16):
Night Live Our Top Story Tonight, Anita Bryant, former mediocre
actress and Orange Juice promoter, performed coitus in public yesterday
campaign to promote heterosexuality. She and her husband assumed the
missionary position for two minutes then announced she is a
cidpro sexual.

Speaker 2 (35:36):
Popular sitcom Mode promoted the boycott of orange juice.

Speaker 15 (35:40):
Oh what can I do for you?

Speaker 17 (35:42):
Bourbon on a rock please?

Speaker 15 (35:45):
And you I'll have an orange juice.

Speaker 25 (35:47):
We don't serve orange juice anymore.

Speaker 2 (35:50):
An even famed nighttime host Johnny Carson would eventually pile
on Anita.

Speaker 20 (35:55):
Thirteen Queens Boulevard.

Speaker 24 (35:57):
Thirteen Queen Boulevard, name.

Speaker 20 (35:59):
An address Anita Bryant will never have.

Speaker 2 (36:03):
These attacks were kill shots to Anita's Hollywood career. It's
signaled to the entire industry and the corporate sponsors funding
it that Anita Bryant was persona non grata in Tinseltown.
She had a TV show in the works, it was
quickly dropped. A local bank dumped commercials featuring her. The
pressure on Anita and her husband.

Speaker 12 (36:23):
Grew in Hollywood. We have been boycotted by the actors
and actresses, so they said they would not appear on
these shows. If I were to even make up personal
parents talking about my book. They don't want my side
of the story to come out because.

Speaker 15 (36:35):
It's the truth. Are you being black balled?

Speaker 18 (36:37):
It looks that way.

Speaker 12 (36:38):
It's worse than that. We're being threatened, and there's all
kinds of harassment, even with my job with Florida Cyprus.
But I still know that God's going to take care
of us. I'm not afraid. We're not afraid, but we're
not going to shut up because people disagree with us.
I think that's a basic ride in America.

Speaker 20 (36:55):
Anita Bryant's role as a leader in the campaign against
homosexuals maybe hurting her camp paying to sell orange Juice.
The chairman of the Florida Citrus Commission says if her
anti gay activities hurt Orange Juice sales, she'll be dropped
from the organization's commercials. Yesterday, the Commission's publicity director said
he wished miss Bryant would resign her Orange Juice role

because of her role in the homosexual issue.

Speaker 2 (37:24):
The gay activists were not only making a need of
toxic to her employers, they began following her around, harassing
her and her husband at every turn.

Speaker 30 (37:37):
Homosexuals started fighting back. The gays formed new groups and
picketed the performer's public appearances, forcing her to cancel a few.

Speaker 15 (37:45):
Anita Bryant and her husband, Bob Green, returned home after
she had completed a television interview under tight security in
New York. She also had to cancel a news conference
there when gay activist said they would cause traffic jams
and put picket lines around her hotel.

Speaker 2 (38:00):
The fair started to creep into her husband's public statements, as.

Speaker 6 (38:03):
The leaders have said, they're going to hound us wherever
we go, whether it's on vacation, or whether it's pursuing
our religious police in churches, or whether it's pursuing our career.

Speaker 2 (38:14):
Activists in the media even tried connecting Anita to a
murder in San Francisco.

Speaker 30 (38:19):
Anito Bryant is now being sued for five million dollars
by a San Francisco mother who charges that the singer's
activities contributed to the recent murder of her homosexual son.

Speaker 34 (38:30):
They say that witnesses have told police that the accused
murderers in stabbing Hillsborough more than fifteen times said here's
one for Anita.

Speaker 2 (38:39):
As gay activists ramped up their attacks, the pressure appeared
to be wearing on the entertainer.

Speaker 4 (38:45):
Several hundred homosexuals came into the auditorium, sitting quietly until
she seemed to refer to them as sinners and that
set them off. About one hundred and fifty gay demonstrators
shouted and walked from the auditorium after Miss Bryan was
given up five an at standing ovations by the audience.

Speaker 28 (39:02):
She's trying to continue her explanation.

Speaker 27 (39:04):
But I do the word homosexual.

Speaker 1 (39:08):
They didn't hear the.

Speaker 5 (39:09):
Last part of those persons.

Speaker 25 (39:12):
The gods said, such were some of you.

Speaker 5 (39:15):
G arewashed, you are satified, you are justified in the.

Speaker 27 (39:22):
Name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Speaker 4 (39:25):
It was an emotional evening for Anita Bryant, but she
said she plans to continue her battle against gay rights
ordinances in other communities, But.

Speaker 2 (39:33):
By the end of the nineteen seventy seventh summer, Anita
and her husband had had enough. The constant attacks and
the damage to her career had taken a toll, so
the two decided to pull out of future efforts to
fight similar gay ordinances in other cities.

Speaker 12 (39:50):
For us to go in and take a crusade in
all the different cities and have referendums like Miami, I
don't believe will happen.

Speaker 6 (39:56):
We're not carpet baggers, and we don't ever want to
be carpet baggers.

Speaker 3 (40:00):
So Anita Bryant will return to her career. She will
offer advice to those who seek it, but she has
decided not to lead her so called foot soldiers of
God on a national crusade.

Speaker 2 (40:11):
Anita Bryant and her husband thought that they were out
of the fight, but what they didn't realize at the
time was that the gay activists weren't done. They wanted
to destroy everything she represented, including her beauty.

Speaker 2 (40:41):
Welcome back to Red Pilled America. So in the summer
of nineteen seventy seven, gay activists and their allies stepped
up their attacks on Anita Bryant and her husband. They
boycotted Orange Juice, blacklisted her in Hollywood, and harassed her
at every turn. By the end of the summer, Anita

and her husband had had enough. They decided to pull
out from all future Save our Children efforts in other cities.
Anita and Bob thought that they were out of the fight,
but what they didn't realize was that the gay activists
weren't done yet. They wanted to destroy everything that she represented,
including her beauty. In late October nineteen seventy seven, Anita

became victim to a form of activism that would mark
a turning point in America.

Speaker 12 (41:31):
If we were going to go on a crusade across
the nation and try to do away with the homosexuals,
then we certainly would have done it on June the eighth,
after one of the most overwhelming victories in the country.
But we didn't. We tried to avoid it.

Speaker 2 (41:43):
As she spoke at a Des Moines press conference confirming
that she'd stepped down from the Save our Children effort,
a gay activist walked up to Anita Bryant and did
something no one had ever seen before. He smacked her
in the face with a pie.

Speaker 25 (41:57):
And every security ain't let him stay.

Speaker 12 (42:05):
Well, at least it's a fruit pie.

Speaker 28 (42:08):
Let's right. Let's pray for him right now, Anita, Let's pray.
Anita wanted to pray.

Speaker 22 (42:13):
That's all right.

Speaker 12 (42:15):
Father, we want to thank you for the opportunity of
coming to Des.

Speaker 35 (42:19):
Moines, and Father, I want to ask that you.

Speaker 12 (42:21):
Forgive him and that we love him and that we're
praying for.

Speaker 13 (42:26):
Him to be delivered from his deft lifestyle.

Speaker 19 (42:29):
Father, and I just.

Speaker 5 (42:38):
We forgive you.

Speaker 2 (42:39):
The attack hit TV screens all across the country. It
was a shocking moment. Anita Bryant was assaulted for the
entire world to see, and the media gave her a
little sympathy and one vicious strike. Gay activists silenced her voice,
attacked her beauty, and ended her career. It wasn't long
before the Florida Citrus Commission ended their decade long relationship

with the entertainer.

Speaker 8 (43:11):
Eh Lo.

Speaker 27 (43:19):
Anita Bryant was once known as an orange juice saleswoman.
Not anymore.

Speaker 2 (43:24):
She'd lost her TV show and her commercial work. She
was dropped as the spokeswoman for Orange growers, her event
bookings dried up, and she was even dumped as commentator
for the Orange Bowl Parade. Her career was ruined. The
pressure applied by gay activists was so devastating that it
destroyed her marriage. Three years after her victory repealing the

Gay Ordnance in Miami, she divorced Bob Green. She'd eventually
have to claim bankruptcy. Anita Bryant would become perhaps the
first conservative victim of cancel culture as we recognize it today,
a phenomenon practice invented by gay activists.

Speaker 1 (44:03):
When gay activists were done ruining Anita Bryant's life, they
turned their energy to the movement she created that was
sweeping the nation. Anita's victory in Miami inspired a wave
of activists across the country to repeal similar ordinances in
their neck of the woods. In the spring of nineteen
seventy eight, Christians successfully repealed a gay ordinance in Saint Paul, Minnesota.

Speaker 20 (44:26):
Let this historic petition and vote by the people of
Saint Paul be a vivid reminder to our elected officials
that they represent us fairly.

Speaker 1 (44:34):
Another gay normalization law went down in Wichita.

Speaker 32 (44:38):
It was a proud moment for the Reverend Ron Adrian.
He and his supporters called it an overwhelming victory for
the right to protect their children.

Speaker 14 (44:47):
How can we possibly have a law giving special rights
to sex deediates without infringing on the rights of our children.
That's what this election has been all about.

Speaker 32 (44:57):
Blacks like Ernestine Daniels voted seven to three against the gays.

Speaker 36 (45:01):
Doesn't bother me being me because I'm gone, But I
don't want my children, you know, to be exposed to this.

Speaker 1 (45:08):
A few weeks later, a third pro gay ordinance was
struck down in Eugene, Oregon.

Speaker 27 (45:13):
Predictions of a close election didn't come true.

Speaker 32 (45:16):
The residents of Eugene decided by a two to one
margin against protecting homosexuals from discrimination.

Speaker 27 (45:22):
Eugene's gay community lost.

Speaker 1 (45:25):
It looked as if the gay movement was going to
be pushed out of the mainstream spotlight for the foreseeable future,
but then came CALLI. In early nineteen seventy eight, a
California state senator by the name of John Briggs introduced
a proposition that was broader than Miami's ordinance.

Speaker 8 (45:42):
Unlike earlier gay rights questions in other parts of the country,
it would not apply just to homosexuals. The law would
empower school boards to fire anyone for advocating, soliciting, imposing, encouraging,
or promoting of private or public homosexual activity directed at
or likely to come to the attention of school children
and or other employees.

Speaker 1 (46:03):
The proposition was to be voted on in November nineteen
seventy eight. Gay activists saw this as a do or
die moment. Although they'd been experiencing defeats trailing back to Miami.
A year earlier, they'd been organizing to make a last
stand in their gay mecca, California. This was the moment
their political organizing in Miami would stand the test of

a building wave. You see. Ever since their defeat, they
knew this day would come. As activist Bob Koontz stated
in the wake of his defeat in Miami.

Speaker 3 (46:32):
We have a national movement and we've created an entire
awareness throughout not just this country, but all over.

Speaker 15 (46:38):
The world as to the discrimination that's going on. And
Panita thinks that the gay community is going back into
a sponsor from that.

Speaker 28 (46:45):
She's so early mistaken.

Speaker 1 (46:46):
But the activists had their work cut out for them.
When initial polls came out, a whopping seventy five percent
of Californians favored the proposition, it looked like it was
going to pass easily, but the gay activists, the media,
anne Hollywood began to chip away at its support. In
June nineteen seventy eight, at a Pride parade in San Francisco,

gay activists introduced the rainbow colored flag that would come
to be known as the Pride Flag. It became the
rallying symbol. Week after week, the narrative machine shaped a
few points of support from Proposition six. With the vote
just a few months away, opponents of the proposition looked
like they'd hit their ceiling. The polls remained steadily in

support of Proposition six passing, But then a rising political
star changed the trajectory of the issue. As voting day approached,
presidential hopeful Ronald Reagan came out against Proposition six.

Speaker 8 (47:42):
Most California political leaders, from Governor Jerry Brown to former
Governor Ronald Reagan, say there are already enough laws on
the books to protect children, and they're apparently convincing California voters.
In late August, the California Field Pole made Proposition six
a two to one favorite. Last week, it showed the
measure loos using by twenty two points among voters most

likely to go to the polls on Tuesday.

Speaker 1 (48:05):
The standard bearer of the conservative movement turned out to
be the difference in defeating the proposition. The gay activists
had successfully erected a wall in California that stopped Christian
activists from purging them from elementary school teaching positions, and
it was Ronald Reagan that placed a few bricks in
that wall.

Speaker 19 (48:23):
In their headquarters near Los Angeles, the supporters of Proposition
six turned somber when the returns clearly showed they'd been defeated.
The mood among opponents to Proposition six was quite different
than downtown Los Angeles, where Mayor Tom Bradley applauded their
campaign efforts.

Speaker 1 (48:42):
The pride movement had matured.

Speaker 11 (48:44):
Pay low, Yeah, Pay Low.

Speaker 1 (48:57):
Over the next twenty years, gay activists, the media, and
hollywood chipped away at Christian conservatives and the nuclear family
to erase all barriers to gay normalization. In movies like Footloose,
they portrayed the faith based community as uncool and backward.
In movies like Private Benjamin and Mister Mom and TV
shows like Who's the Boss, they rased traditional gender roles.

In musicals like Hairspray and bands like Culture Club, they
celebrated gender bending characters.

Speaker 25 (49:25):
Thank you, America, You've got tyst style and you know
a good drag free when you say one.

Speaker 1 (49:31):
They disrupted churches to scare the faith based community into silence.

Speaker 20 (49:35):
One thousand homosexual protesters blocked the entrance to the auditorium.
The Christians had to fight their way into the building
and fight to be heard.

Speaker 1 (49:43):
And if anyone ever thought about resisting this shift, just
remember what happened to Anita Bryant. Inch by inch, One
story at a time, they pushed homosexuality into the mainstream. Then,
in December nineteen ninety eight, activists took another shot at
passing a gay ordinance in Miami. As before, at a

public hearing, the faith based community came out in sharp
opposition to exposing their children to openly homosexual teachers.

Speaker 19 (50:11):
This country was not based and founded upon principles of homosexuals.
This country was based upon Christian principles from the very beginning.

Speaker 33 (50:20):
So as a as a member of this community, this
ordinance is not about discrimination. It's about a preference that
the gay community want, and I say that this commission
should vote it down.

Speaker 31 (50:31):
Do individuals who engage in homosexual activities deserve to be
given additional civil rights or human rights beyond what is
now given to every citizen of this great country?

Speaker 17 (50:42):
In other words, do.

Speaker 31 (50:43):
Certain individuals in our community deserve additional civil rights or
human rights protection based squarely on their sexual orientation? The
answer to these two similar questions should be a resounding no.

Speaker 1 (50:56):
As the vote was tallied, it looked like the result
could go either way.

Speaker 5 (51:02):
Commissioner Carrie Yes. Commissioner Dias de la Pertia no. Commissioner
Ferguson Yes. Commissioner Mion No, Commissioner Morales.

Speaker 1 (51:15):
The vote climbed to six to six when the man
with the deciding vote began discussing the rationale behind his decision.

Speaker 10 (51:23):
The experience of African Americans is not the same experience
as the gay community as it relates to discrimination, and
I reject the comparisons that have been made.

Speaker 1 (51:33):
It appeared the gay ordinance was going to be struck down,
but then as.

Speaker 10 (51:37):
It relates to these issues that have been brought up,
and my vote is yes.

Speaker 5 (51:46):
Smotion passes seven to six.

Speaker 1 (51:50):
Twenty one years after Anita Bryant defeated an anti Christian ordinance,
the homosexual community won the right to be openly gay
teachers of kids, the Trojan Rainbow had entered the classroom.
In a little over a decade, Pride Month would become
a mainstream phenomenon, and our children would never be the same.

Speaker 32 (52:10):
Not all boys have a penis and not all girls
have a vagina.

Speaker 1 (52:15):
Yet, when you're one of the youngest and first drag
Queen Flash kids.

Speaker 29 (52:20):
A lot of people when they hear the term pedophile,
they automatically assume that it means a sex offender, and
that isn't true, and it leads to a lot of
misconceptions about attractions toward myners.

Speaker 2 (52:38):
Which leads us back to the question how did Pride
Month become ubiquitous? Homosexuality went mainstream by entering the classroom.
From the beginning of the nineteen seventy six Fight Miami,
gay activists claimed the faith based community's fears were unfounded,

but the gay community knew that by introducing children at
a very young age to their lifestyle, they'd ultimately be
planting the seed of their future normalcy. Practically everything the
faith based community feared when first fighting homosexual infiltration of
the classroom has come true. The nuclear family has been destabilized,
gender roles are being erased, sexual perversion has been mainstreamed,

and innocent children have been physically and psychologically abused.

Speaker 24 (53:30):
At closer friendships with random women I met in the
bathroom before I transitioned at clubs because of how hope
and women are than a head. In eight years of transitioning,
nobody told me how lonely being a man.

Speaker 2 (53:49):
Is the moment the Trojan rainbow was allowed into the classroom,
the fabric of America was frayed. Anita Bryant would later
reflect on her battle with gay activists.

Speaker 35 (54:00):
And I went into hiding. I didn't want to see
the public. I had never wanted to sing again, certainly
never faced pressed. I remember lying in the bed in
my mother's house in a fetal position and wanting to die.

Speaker 2 (54:13):
But she eventually came to a new understanding of her effort.

Speaker 35 (54:16):
To day, I can honestly say that there is such
a peace and a confidence and a maturity, if you will,
that could have only come out of going down to
those pits of despair and despondency and wanting to take
my life.

Speaker 12 (54:33):
That I knew.

Speaker 35 (54:34):
God was there in hell the same as he was,
you know at times when I thought life was heaven.
I did what was right.

Speaker 23 (54:42):
And the rest is history.

Speaker 2 (55:06):
And whatever happened to Bob Konst the gay activists that
fought Anita in Miami, while mister Konst, the same guy
that scoffed at the claim that gays wanted to recruit kids,
continues his activism to this day. When Florida Governor Ron
DeSantis prohibited public school teachers from teaching the gay agenda
to kindergarteners through third graders. Bob Kons came out in

support of DeSantis. It turns out Anita was right and
Bob was wrong. The Trojan Rainbow was always about converting children,
and the gay community isn't even hiding it anymore.

Speaker 29 (55:41):
Making an event kid friendly doesn't mean sanitizing it aka
taking something like.

Speaker 30 (55:47):
Kink out of Pride.

Speaker 2 (55:49):
Americans must do everything in their power to fight the
corruption of our children. The grooming must stop. But thankfully
parents are rising up to protect their kids and it's
creating some unexpected alliances.

Speaker 36 (56:03):
Protests turning violent. Following a school board decision in Glendale, California,
parents have been taking their kids out of classes. They've
been upset, demanding to see new Pride Month curriculum. They're
upset over what their children are being taught about gender
identity and the LGBTQ plus community. There was a similar
demonstration in Montgomery County, Maryland, where parents shouted to protect

our kids and family rights. This was in now Baltimore
and in Washington, d C. The parents are saying no
opt out policy for approved books that feature LGBTQ plus
characters and themes. A lot of people who are in
this group of protesters were Christian and Muslim parents.
