Readers may recall that back in October, I posted an email I received from a hilarious group known as Public Advocate of the United States, who think that the “radical homosexual lobby” is seeking to destroy American life as we know it. I’ve gotten more emails since then, and they are always incredibly overblown with fearmongering and the persecution complex of Public Advocate’s president, Eugene Delgaudio. Here’s an excerpt from one of them:
Sometimes, I am afraid that without your support, I too will be forced to give in to the Radical Homosexual Lobby and stop fighting against their perverted agenda. My friends, I am tired. My health is suffering under the strain of fighting the Radical Homosexual Lobby with limited help. I can’t eat, I can’t sleep and I am sick with worry.
Oh noes! The poor guy – he’s making himself sick working so hard at his bigotry.
But maybe he isn’t so poor, after all. According to one blogger’s recent report, Public Advocate is most likely a one-man show, and Eugene Delgaudio is making upwards of $170,000 a year asking other people for money. Apparently there are enough people who are frightened by Delgadio’s “teh gayz are in our country, destroyin’ all our valuez” schtick that they will give him money to combat the growing Gay Scare!
It just goes to show you – you can’t assume an organization is legitimate (or even extant) just because someone made up a website claiming so (a really ugly one, at that). And for god’s sake don’t give your money to these people. Eugene Delgaudio is a fraud, and hopefully he’ll get in trouble for it sooner rather than later.
