Glowacki Family Tells Lies In New NOM Anti-Gay Hate Video



Howell, Michigan public high school student Daniel Glowacki gained notoriety when he disrupted teacher Jay McDowell’s Spirit Day presentation with anti-gay hate speech.

In a new anti-gay hate speech video, Glowacki and his anti-gay bigot mother appear, telling lies about the incident and about gay people generally.

The whole video is a lie, being as it is produced by NOM’s “Marriage Anti-Defamation Alliance,” while the Glowacki incident had nothing to do with marriage. The appearance of the Glowackis — (whose hostility against Jay McDowell had nothing to do with marriage, but everything to do with his observance of Spirit Day) — in NOM’s video underscores that NOM, the National Organization For Marriage, is an anti-gay group, not exclusively devoted to strengthening marital relationships as its name might mislead people to believe. That the Glowackis have appeared in this video amplifies the impression that they are hostile gay bashers. They have allowed the so-called National Organization for Marriage to latch onto them as gay bashers, even though the Glowackis’ initial gay bashing had nothing to do with marriage. They are now abetting NOM’s Brian Brown’s begging for gay-bashing blood money. Brown’s letter accompanying the Glowacki video says that the same-sex movement is attacking “our children.”

Spirit Day has nothing to do with marriage, or with attacking children; the Glowackis are hateful for participating in the NOM video. Spirit Day received one of its initial raisons d’etre for being widely observed when Clint McCance, an Arkansas public school board vice-president, said on Facebook: “Seriously they want me to wear purple because five queers committed suicide. They only way I’m wearing it for them is if they all commit suicide.

Perhaps when he is more mature, Daniel Glowacki — if able to escape the anti-gay brainwashing that his mother inflicted on him — will reflect that he was incorrect — cruel even — to challenge his teacher Jay McDowell over McDowell’s observance of Spirit Day. If he is a decent human being, that absolutely is what he will do. Until he does that, though, he is more with Clint McCance than not: “The only way I’m wearing” a purple shirt “for them is if they all commit suicide.” Daniel did tell McDowell that his purple “Tyler’s Army” shirt offended him.

Perhaps, too, Sandra Glowacki will take a moment out from her bogus martyrdom to consider that each of the dead children commemorated in Spirit Day observations had a mother.

Glowacki’s anti-gay hate video is here.

At the 1:30 point, Glowacki lies about what teacher McDowell said to him.

Glowacki alleges: “He asked me if I was really against the homosexual lifestyle.”

A teacher leading his class in observance of Spirit Day does not use the hate-speech term “homosexual lifestyle.”

Yet, later in the video, Glowacki further alleges that McDowell said “He told me that if I didn’t support the homosexual lifestyle that I could leave his classroom.”

And Glowacki in this video appears to have fabricated an additional McDowell quote out of the thin air.  He twice alleges that McDowell said that students give up their free speech rights when they enter his classroom.  Yet, that allegation is not in Glowacki’s federal court pleading. Neither is the phrase “homosexual lifestyle.” The pleading does in one place allege that McDowell said something about “‘the gay lifestyle’ or words to that effect.” Do you see how underhanded they are being, even in the court pleading, which they have used to beg for donations from gay bashers? They put into McDowell’s mouth, a phrase he never used, and they put it between quotation marks — “gay lifestyle,” as though McDowell had used precisely those words — but then to cover themselves, they say “or words to that effect.”

In this video, Glowacki is portraying his anti-gay hostility in the classroom on Spirit Day in the most fallacious of manners. Surely the Glowackis’ attorneys — and NOM’s attorneys too — know the difference between direct quotes and paraphrases. One proof that they do, is that their pleading is notably free of direct quotes. They would not dare to tell the court that McDowell literally said that students give up their free speech rights when entering his classroom. There are student witnesses, after all. But, for the purposes of a gay-bashing, lies-filled NOM video, the Glowackis’ attorneys don’t mind if Daniel puts in McDowell’s mouth words that McDowell never uttered. Daniel Glowacki is lying in this video — deliberately misrepresenting what happened in Jay McDowell’s classroom — in order to make a strong appeal to other gay-bashing bigots. He would not get away with these lies under oath in a court. His Thomas More Law Center Attorneys, and NOM’s attorneys, know that, of course. The Thomas More Law Center, by the way, refers to itself as a “ministry.” They will not represent you if you are an out gay Jew. It is a “ministry” hostile to gay human beings. They fraudulently portray all Christians as being hostile to LGBTers. Look at the title of this Glowacki-related release on their site: “Courageous Christian Student Confronts Teacher’s Promotion of the National Homosexual Agenda.” In that release, Thomas More attorney Richard Thompson says that the Glowacki case “shows the pernicious way in which homosexual activists have turned our public schools into indoctrination centers, and are seeking to eradicate all religious and moral opposition to their agenda.” That statement comes from a place of hate-filled militant ignorance — and the anti-gay bigot who wrote it has no intention of ever making a good-faith effort to understand gay human beings as his equals — as is demonstrated by, for example, the fact that whole churches ordain out married gay and/or lesbian ministers. It is not, as Thompson claims, only “homosexual activists” who desire to see good strong acceptance values taught in the public schools.  The heterosexual dominated American Medical Association, for example, the heterosexual dominated American Psychiatric Association, for another example, and heterosexual dominated Reform Judaism, for yet another example favor the teaching of good strong acceptance values. McDowell was theming a single day’s class of his Economics course to Spirit Day, on Spirit Day, but from the way Thomas More attorneys, and the Glowackis themselves are carrying on, you would think that somebody had forced Daniel into an intimate homosexual act with a gun held to his head.

Daniel’s lying, gay-bashing words are — let us not forget — coming from somebody whose mother has filed a federal case against a public school. If under oath, Glowacki were to allege that McDowell had asked whether he supported “the homosexual lifestyle,” Glowacki would be perjuring himself.

Central to Glowacki’s spiel is that after McDowell had a student remove her Confederate Flag belt buckle, Glowacki asked McDowell why that student had to remove her Confederate Flag, while McDowell was able to continue wearing his purple “Tyler’s Army” t-shirt, which offended him. Glowacki of course was aware of many racist incidents in the Howell schools community involving the Confederate Flag as a symbol of white supremacy. Here, you can read a Howell resident’s statement that often in the town, swastikas were being added on top of Confederate Flag imagery, and that girls were placing Swarovski crystals on the Confederate Flag and swastika symbols. The writer says: “It is quite fashionable in Howell to have a swastika t-shirt worn with a nice confederate flag belt buckle.” The gist of Glowacki’s complaint is that he is as offended by Spirit Day and a “Tyler’s Army” t-shirt as others are by Confederate flags and swastiskas, and had a right to disrupt Howell’s Spirit Day presentation by carrying on about his rejection of “the homosexual lifestyle.” Remember; Glowacki introduced anti-gay hostility into the classroom on Spirit Day, by demanding to know from McDowell why a “Tyler’s Army” t-shirt — which offends him as a gay-bashing bigot — is acceptable, while a Confederate Flag is not.

Glowacki deserves a big fat F- for likening the Confederate Flag to a “Tyler’s Army” t-shirt in class on Spirit Day, in a community where white supremacists are wearing Confederate Flags and swastikas. Who knows? Maybe the Glowackis wax nostalgic over the Reichskonkordat.

Further on in the video, Daniel’s mother Sandra Glowacki tells lies about what openly gay Howell student Graeme Taylor said on Ellen DeGeneres’s show. She also vents in the video, about McDowell being restored to his classroom after an investigation of the allegations against him. “I was devastated,” says this woman who wants her son to be able to voice bullying non-acceptance of gay human beings in class on Spirit Day by likening a Confederate Flag to a “Tyler’s Army” t-shirt. She moreover complains about what one finds when Googling her name. The video at that point shows the opening sentence of the article “Gay Basher Sandy Glowacki’s Dirty Laundry.” That sentence reads: “Sandy Glowacki appears to be a maliciously anti-gay Catholic bigot raising her children to believe nasty, ignorance-fueled, bullying non-acceptance of gay human beings.”

I stand by that sentence, as being an accurate description of Glowacki’s anti-gay bigotry.  The woman is not a member of Catholics for Equality.

What Daniel Glowacki did in class on Spirit Day was as objectionable as would be a KKKer introducing anti-Jewish hostility on a Holocaust remembrance day.

The NOM video, by the way, has a screen capture of my open letter to Daniel Glowacki that appeared on the Anti-Gay Bigotry Scares Me blog.

Sandra Glowacki’s federal court complaint document is bursting at its seams with gay-bashing defamation. Here is a prior TNCRM article “Don’t Let Sandra Glowacki Get Away With Gay-Bashing Gays in Court.”

Another lie perpetrated in the NOM-Glowacki anti-gay hate video is that Spirit Day has nothing to do with teaching economics, as if no objective evaluation were possible of how anti-gay bigotry negatively impacts the economy. Whereas in reality, gay students sometimes get terrorized out of their public schools, and gay people out of their jobs, NOM is communicating the fraudulent idea that you can not possibly be discussing economics if you are discussing anti-gay bigotry and oppression.

At the 6:20 point in the video, NOM perpetrates another anti-gay lie. Note: NOM spokesperson Damian Goddard previously has falsely alleged that he was fired from his job as a Canadian sportscaster because he made a gay-bashing tweet. His former employer Sportsnet said that “the reasons for his termination are “well documented” and that the decision to fire him was made long before his tweet. Called on the carpet about his lie, Goddard said that it was “absolutely” possible that his tweet had nothing to do with his termination.

Goddard concludes by urging bigot viewers to report to a certain site “threats to their person, property or livelihood” related to their gay-bashing activities. That is rich, coming from Goddard, who lied about having been fired from Sportsnet because of his anti-gay tweet. And, every judge ever given to consider NOM’s allegations about equality supporters’ threats to their persons and property have ruled that NOM’s allegations are without merit.

NOM is packed full of dirty gay-bashing liars. Maggie Gallagher once rebuffed a gay rights supporter by saying “There’s no point in conversing with someone who calls you a liar,” but she has never responded to requests for comment on the article “The endless anti-gay lies of the National Organization for Marriage’s Maggie Gallagher.

So it is just par for the NOM course that they would incite Daniel Glowacki to lie by saying that teacher Jay McDowell asked him if “he supports the homosexual lifestyle.”

‘All-Out War’: Trump’s Attorney Tells Kimberly Guilfoyle Ex-President Will Be ‘Loud and Proud’ When Showing Up for Indictment



Donald Trump’s attorney for Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s hush money case against the ex-president was interviewed by Kimberly Guilfoyle for her new show on Monday. Guilfoyle is engaged to Donald Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump, Jr.

Attorney Joe Tacopina told Guilfoyle, the ex-Fox News host, that the ex-president will happily show up in Manhattan if and when DA Alvin Bragg indicts him.

Guilfoyle asked Tacopina if Trump is indicted would he want them to “do it virtually,” presumably so Trump could participate from Mar-a-Lago.

Frowning, Tacopina said the district attorney and prosecutors “do what they want.. At this point, this is an all-out war.”

“Donald Trump is the toughest human being I’ve ever met,” Tacopina continued.

“Donald Trump is not going to ask for anything from them. If they want him at 100 Centre Street,” the address of the New York County Criminal Court and NYPD Manhattan Central Booking, Tacopina told Guilfoyle, “he’ll be there loud and proud, and there’s nobody that’s gonna make him cower.”

Guilfoyle does not appear to disclose her relationship to either Trump in her video, which is produced to appear as an actual news show, during which she shares legal theory with viewers.

Tacopina tells Guilfoyle Trump is the victim, and the only crime was extortion. The grand jury likely will have a difference of opinion.

He also falsely calls The Wall Street Journal, a sister entity to Fox News and The New York Post – all owned by Rupert Murdoch – a “far-left” publication.

Republicans Are ‘Obstructing Justice’ and ‘Becoming Accessories’ to Trump’s ‘Crimes’: Former Prosecutor



In the wake of Donald Trump‘s numerous recent social media rants attacking various prosecutors investigating his possibly unlawful acts, and his claim over the weekend that he will be indicted on Tuesday, many House and Senate Republicans have been rushing to his defense, wrongly claiming he is the victim of a political prosecution.

At least two former federal prosecutors are blasting them, with one saying it is “illegal” to interfere with an ongoing criminal investigation, and another warning Republicans are engaging in obstruction of justice and are becoming “accessories after the fact.”

On Saturday, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy slammed Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, who is expected this week to indict the former president.

“Here we go again — an outrageous abuse of power by a radical DA who lets violent criminals walk as he pursues political vengeance against President Trump,” McCarthy wrongly told Americans. “I’m directing relevant committees to immediately investigate if federal funds are being used to subvert our democracy by interfering in elections with politically motivated prosecutions.”

McCarthy’s tweet was highly criticized, including by retired Democratic U.S. Congressman John Yarmouth of Kentucky.

“I may end being not fully accurate, but Kevin McCarthy may be implicitly endorsing falsifying business records, tax fraud, campaign finance crime, and more, including obstruction of justice, when undermining the justice system is exactly what his tweet does,” tweeted Yarmouth.

McCarthy didn’t stop there.

“Alvin Bragg is abusing his office to target President Trump while he’s reduced a majority of felonies, including violent crimes, to misdemeanors. He has different rules for political opponents,” McCarthy alleged on Sunday. “Republicans stopped the radical DC crime law, and we will investigate any use of federal funds that are used to facilitate the perversion of justice by Soros-backed DA’s across the country.”

Some Republicans injected what many see as the GOP’s increasing embrace of antisemitism into their attacks against Bragg.

U.S. Senator J.D. Vance (R-OH) on Sunday tweeted: “Alvin Bragg is bought by George Soros. He allows violent criminals to walk the streets of New York City, but will prosecute the likely Republican nominee (and former president) on a baseless misdemeanor charge. These people are trying to turn America into a third-world country.”

Elise Stefanik (R-NY), the Chair of the House Republican Conference and an ultra-MAGA extremist, also used the Soros reference, which experts have said can be antisemitic: “The Soros-backed woke prosecutor Alvin Bragg must testify under oath before Congress.”

Attorney and writer David Lurie, pointing to both McCarthy’s and Vance’s tweets, wrote: “GOP politicians like McCarthy, Trump and JD Vance now routinely include antisemitic conspiracism in their political rhetoric.” He linked to this article he wrote at Public Notice.

“JD Vance is advancing a claim that a Jew ‘bought’ a respected prosecutor, who just happens to be Black,” Lurie added. “Double bigotry in just one tweet.”

U.S. Senator Rick Scott (R-FL) also engaged in the antisemitic “Soros-backed” reference.

Speaker McCarthy “is right,” Scott tweeted, “and I fully support his call for an investigation. No federal dollars should be used to prop up this radical, Soros-backed activist attorney or his gross political attacks.”

U.S. Senator Steve Daines (R-MT) on Sunday said District Attorney Bragg “should focus on the violent criminals terrorizing New York instead of pursuing politically motivated charges against” Donald Trump.

On Monday, a former federal prosecutor for 30 years, Glenn Kirschner, issued a warning for Republicans.

“In a very real sense, congressional Republicans who use their power & their office to thwart criminal prosecutions of Donald Trump are becoming accessories after the fact to Trump’s crimes. They are obstructing justice. And we can expect [it] to continue if it goes unaddressed.”

Kirschner was responding to this tweet from noted Harvard professor of law (retired) Laurence Tribe: “House Republicans are gathered at a luxury resort near Disney World where House Judiciary Chair JIM JORDAN (R-Ohio) & senior GOP leaders are preparing to demand testimony from members of Manhattan DA’s Office amid reports of an imminent Trump indictment.”

Monday afternoon Jordan and his colleagues did just that, sending a letter to Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, demanding he hand over communications and testify before Congress to explain his prosecution of Trump.

“Was the Manhattan DA’s office in communication with DOJ about their investigation of President Trump?” Jordan tweeted. “Was the Manhattan DA’s office using federal funds to investigate President Trump? Alvin Bragg owes our committee answers.”

In response, U.S. Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA), an attorney and former military prosecutor with the U.S. Air Force Judge Advocate General’s Corps, called Jordan’s actions “illegal.”

“Dear @Jim_Jordan,” Lieu tweeted. “Local prosecutors, including DA Bragg, owe you nothing. In fact, it is illegal for you and @JudiciaryGOP to interfere in an ongoing criminal investigation, or a criminal trial (if there is one).”

Jim Jordan Waging ‘Purely Political Attack’: Demands Bragg Testify Before Congress Over Expected Trump Indictment



In an unprecedented move House Republican Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan is demanding Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg testify before Congress over his expected indictment of Donald Trump. Bragg, officially the New York County District Attorney, is an elected official whose office was created under the New York State Constitution and does not answer to Congress.

Professor of law and former U.S. Attorney Joyce Vance quickly blasted Jordan’s move, saying: “what jurisdiction does Congress have over a DA elected by Manhattanites? Sure, Jordan will talk about fed’l funding, but this is a purely political attack on local gov’t.”

Earlier Monday, reacting to Speaker Kevin McCarthy’s remarks, Vance said: “It’s not up to House Republicans to review Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg’s conduct. It’s up to Manhattan voters. If Trump is indicted, a jury will decide whether there’s sufficient evidence to convict. The GOP continues to undercut our democratic institutions to serve Trump.”

Jordan’s letter, he writes to Bragg: “In light of the serious consequences of your actions, we expect that you will testify about what plainly appears to be a politically motivated prosecutorial decision,” according to a Fox Corp. article. The website also says it was signed by two other Republicans: House Oversight Committee Chair Jim Comer and House Committee on Administration Chair Brian Steil. None have any oversight authority on the Office of the Manhattan District Attorney.

“Jordan warned Bragg that if news reports of a possible Trump indictment are accurate, Bragg’s actions ‘will erode confidence in the evenhanded application of justice and unalterably interfere in the court of the 2024 presidential election,'” Fox adds.

“The legal theory underlying your reported prosecution appears to be tenuous and untested,” Jordan wrote. He also attacked former Trump attorney Michael Cohen, who has testified extensively in the case before the grand jury.

Just before leaving office Trump awarded Jordan the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

According to former Trump White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson who testified publicly and privately before the U.S. House Select Committee on the January 6 Attack, Jordan discussed pardons with the White House for Republican Members of Congress, although she says he did not ask for one himself. Jordan also defied a subpoena from the January 6 Select Committee.

In a Monday morning interview with Fox Corp.’s Harris Faulkner, Jordan falsely describes Trump’s hush money payment to adult film actress and director Stormy Daniels as “some alleged bookkeeping error.” The expected charges have neither been voted on by the grand jury nor announced.

“Charges in NY are expected to involve false business records created to conceal Trump’s payment of hush money to Stormy Daniels but there are possible charges involving manipulating property values for tax, loan & insurance advantages,” Vance also  said Monday.
