Here is a photo just posted today that shows Justice Thomas and two of the most anti-gay professionals in the industry.
Good As You founderÂ Jeremy Hooper just published an article with this image he found on Twitter. In the center is Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. On the left is Ryan T. Anderson of the very anti-gayÂ Heritage Foundation. On the right is none other than Robert P. George.
By comparison, Anderson hasn’t had that great an impact on the LGBT community. He’s been the anti-equality voice on CNN, and he’s the co-author of the book What Is Marriage?: Man and Woman: A Defense, along with Robert George. Anderson believesÂ gay people should forgo sex, does not believeÂ in same-sex marriageÂ â€“ calling it a “lie”Â â€“ supports harmful ex-gay therapy, and says rights for gay people are “makebelieve.”
But it’s Robert P. George that the LGBT community and all on the left really should know better.
Prof. George is a professor of jurisprudence at Princeton, and a visiting professorÂ at Harvard Law School.Â He’s also the co-founder ofÂ NOM, the National Organization For Marriage. George has other notches on his anti-gay belt.Â
He is aÂ senior fellow at theÂ Witherspoon Institute, which funded the embarrassingly flawed Regnerus anti-gay parenting study. He’s on an editorial board at the Deseret news, Utah’s largest paperÂ â€“ wholly owned by the Mormon Church.Â He’s on the boards of the Koch Brothers’Â American Enterprise Institute, andÂ the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty.
George also serves on theÂ U.S. Commission on International Religious FreedomÂ â€“ a federal government commission.Â
But one of his greatest claims to fame, aside from NOM, is drafting the Manhattan Declaration, which advocates for anarchy in the face of governmental support for the rights of a woman to choose, and same-sex marriage.
“Today, these two men managed to hug up against a man who will soon make a key decision on marriage equality,” Hooper writes.
These three men, standing arm in arm together in the chambers of the U.S. Supreme Court, should greatly concern everyone.

‘Propaganda’: Bloomberg Destroyed for Posting ‘Deep Fake’ ‘Hoax’ Clip of His Debate Performance to Make Him Look Better
‘In a Climate of Wildfire Misinformation, This Is Super Irresponsible’
Billionaire Mike Bloomberg‘s performance at Wednesday night’s Democratic debate was by most accounts at best terrible, but that didn’t stop the campaign from pushing out a fake, doctored, and highly-edited clip suggesting the other candidates on stage were silenced by a claim he made.
“I’m the only one here I think that’s ever started a business,” Bloomberg said during the debate, as this actual clip shows.
Here, I made the clip of what actually happened when Bloomberg asked who else had started a business. It was not 20 seconds of dumbfounded silence. pic.twitter.com/cpUAH5mkNJ

But in the Bloomberg clip, his remarks are followed by 20 seconds of very uncomfortable presidential candidates being stunned into silence – including actual crickets chirping – by his attack.

The responses to Bloomberg’s fake video came quickly:
Going with deep fakes now are we?

Apparently the latest business Bloomberg started: A company that takes footage from his disastrous live TV appearances and deceptively edits it to make him look good. #Propaganda https://t.co/eguHCUVcNj

This is a fake video, James O’Keefe style. It was stitched together with clips from elsewhere in the debate to produce a hoax version.

Bloomberg’s team is tweeting doctored videos from last night’s debate. In a climate of wildfire misinformation, this is super irresponsible. https://t.co/JMkey0vCkb

1) This video is fake
2) The Trump presidency is a refutation of the idea that “starting a business” qualifies one to be president https://t.co/IfypCycibf

Watch: Roger Stone Greeted With Shouts of ‘Traitor’ as He Enters DC Courthouse for Sentencing
Trump confidant and former campaign advisor Roger Stone arrived at a D.C. courthouse minutes before 9 AM, greeted by repeated shouts of “traitor!” as he walked to the door.
Stone is expected to be sentenced by Judge Amy Berman Jackson, who has been targeted with criticism and harassment by President Donald Trump and his MAGA supporters.
Last week all four federal prosecutors quit the case after Attorney General Bill Barr intervened to reduce their sentencing recommendation, just hours after Trump posted an angry tweet.
Stone was convicted on all seven felony counts, including witness tampering and lying to Congress.
NEW: Roger Stone arrives at a DC courthouse for expected sentencing on his conviction for witness tampering and lying to Congress. A few onlookers yelled “Traitor!” at him as entered the building. https://t.co/Hp6XrotcJK pic.twitter.com/gv91mcYWaN

In Face to Face Confrontation Susan Rice Slams John Bolton on Impeachment: ‘I Can’t Imagine Withholding My Testimony’
Susan Rice confronted John Bolton face to face over his failure to testify in President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial.
Rice, who served as former President Barack Obama’s national security adviser, shared a stage Wednesday with Trump’s former national security adviser at Vanderbilt University, and she confronted Bolton over keeping quiet about his concerns over Ukraine, reported The Guardian.
“I can’t imagine withholding my testimony with or without a subpoena,” Rice said. “I would feel like I was shamefully violating the oath that I took to defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic.”
Bolton had refused to testify during the House impeachment inquiry, but said last month he would testify in the Senate trial, if subpoenaed — but Republican senators unsurprisingly voted against hearing from new witnesses.
“I said I would testify if subpoenaed,” Bolton told Rice. “My position is exactly the same as Joe Biden.”
Rice quickly slapped back.
“Except Joe Biden didn’t have firsthand knowledge about what transpired with Ukraine,” she said.
“When I was the sitting national security advisor in 2016, I was called to testify in front of the House select committee about Benghazi,” Rice said. “The last thing I wanted to do was take time away from my duty as national security adviser. But I did so voluntarily, I wasn’t subpoenaed.”
The university did not live stream the event or post audio of the exchange online, but the Vanderbilt Hustler student newspaper reported on the exchange, in addition to other reporters in attendance.
