Back in 2007, we assembled background info on the horrid propaganda play, “The Laramie Project.” Performed at high schools and colleges around the country, it uses raw emotion and lies to draw youth into the sexual-radical “rights” cause. The recruitment efforts never let up.
So we’re not surprised to see “Laramie” being pushed again by Arts Emerson and the Boston Globe this week. They’re even exploiting the Governor’s daughter as a “panelist”. Emerson faculty are working with the sexual-radical groups GLAD, GLAAD, PFLAG, GLSEN, Matthew Shepard Foundation, Human Rights Campaign, and Boston’s “Theater Offensive” (“ambitious programming [on] the cutting edge of queer culture and politics”) to promote their ideology and sense of victimhood, and encourage everyone to “take action against hate”:
The moderator will be former ABC news anchor and current Leader-in-Residence in Emerson College’s Journalism Department Carole Simpson. "It is my pleasure to moderate a panel exploring the plight of the LBGT communities," said Simpson. "Their problems of discrimination, physical abuse and exclusion have been overlooked too long. The issues need to come 'out of the closet' into the light of public understanding. I hope I can facilitate that. I lost a close relative to AIDS. Through him I learned firsthand the difficulties he had by being 'different.'"
From the Boston Globe:
ArtsEmerson’s “The Laramie Residency’’ includes panel discussions and Tectonic Theater Project’s “The Laramie Project’’ and “The Laramie Project: Ten Years Later.’’ Tonight’s discussion, “The Struggle for GLBT Rights and Protections,’’ focuses on the Shepard/Byrd Hate Crimes Prevention Act, civil rights, and the impact on awareness because of “The Laramie Project.’’ Panelists include activist Katherine Patrick (Governor Deval Patrick’s daughter).
