Anti-Gay “Public Advocate” Responds to HRC

Call It OutPost submitted by Dan Rafter, Former HRC Associate Director of Communications

The president of the anti-gay organization “Public Advocate of the United States” is responding to HRC calling attention to his bigoted email blasted out earlier this month by the Weekly Standard – and he’s not happy.

Eugene Delgaudio told the Loudon Times he wouldn’t stop working to spread his hateful and false messages about LGBT Americans: “If someone thinks they can deny me this discussion, they are smoking serious weed.”

Delgaudio then took his rhetoric one dramatic step further, declaring: “With a sledgehammer they try to crush me. They can’t crush my voice.”

In reality, HRC’s action around Delgaudio’s bigoted email was to call on the Weekly Standard to distance itself from his lengthy rant.

The Weekly Standard’s publisher, Terry Eastland, quickly said the ad “is obviously not the sort of advertising that we would accept, nor will we accept it in the future. It was just one of these cases where an ad came in, it was not fully vetted in the way it should be, and it got out.”

In his original email, Delgaudio blasted the Student Non-Discrimination Act (SNDA), saying “radical homosexuals” were pushing SNDA as part of an attempt to “indoctrinate” children while creating a “new America based on sexual promiscuity.” It went on to call LGBT people “sexual deviants.” View the full email.
