Harvey Milk Day Stalls in California


‘Harvey Milk Gay Day’ stalls temporarily

Good news! Under the intense pressure of phone calls and emails to key Democrat legislators in Sacramento — and with the help of everyone who’s using SaveCalifornia.com‘s lobbying and fax campaign —  SB 572, “Harvey Milk Gay Day” for public-school students, has temporarily stalled in the California State Assembly.

Shortly after 10 a.m. Thursday, the floor jockey for SB 572, homosexual activist and Democrat Assemblymember Tom Ammiano of San Francisco, stood up and announced he had “simple” amendments to the bill. Unfortunately, no one seemed to read the amendments, which were approved with a  voice vote that was too quick.

Amending the bill means “Harvey Milk Gay Day” can’t come back for a vote on the Assembly floor until Monday. It also means the bill is in trouble. And it may also mean amendments have been made to “provide cover” for nervous Democrat legislators from pro-family districts. If so, the bill could pass more easily…unless pro-family citizens rise up with greater resistance today, Friday, this weekend, and Monday morning.

This potential bad news should motivate you to make more phone calls, send more faxes and emails, and tweet the Governor, all urging a defeat of SB 572, “Harvey Milk Gay Day.”

Early Thursday morning, SaveCalifornia.com delivered powerful evidence that Harvey Milk was and is a very bad role model for children. We gave copies of actual pages from the authoritative and positive biography of Milk, “The Mayor Castro Street” by Randy Shilts, to Democrat and Republican assemblymembers. It seems to have had a good impact, as did the flood of “No on SB 572” faxes that concerned citizens have been sending.

Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who called, faxed and emailed against SB 572 this week, yesterday and today. You are definitely making a difference against this blatant sexual indoctrination bill.

Keep calling, faxing, and emailing the State Assembly and Governor Schwarzenegger.

See how the homosexual activists are busy.  So please, for the love of God and to protect six million children in California public schools from EVEN MORE sexual indoctrination, get busy and spread the word to others. TAKE ACTION NOW.

Please also consider donating to SaveCalifornia.com to help us rent email and phone call lists to get the word out to many more people and stir them to action. We are fighting hard in the California Legislature and are vigorously pursuing the governor’s veto.


‘Harvey Milk Gay Day’ stalls in State Assembly in the face of truth
A flood of faxes exposes Milk as a sexual predator and public liar

Sacramento, California — SaveCalifornia.com, a leading statewide pro-family organization that is fighting for children’s innocence and against “Harvey Milk Gay Day” in public schools, is encouraged that SB 572 could not pass the California State Assembly today. The bill was instead amended and cannot come up for a floor vote until Monday.

“Harvey Milk was a notorious sexual predator, advocated multiple sexual relationships at the same time, was a public liar, and is in no way a good role model for children,” said Randy Thomasson, president of SaveCalifornia.com.

SaveCalifornia.com has created a web page empowering concerned Californians to call, fax and send emails to Governor Schwarzenegger and state legislators, urging them to reject SB 572, “Harvey Milk Gay Day.” Each assemblymember has received a flood of faxes opposing SB 572 from Californians.

This morning, prior to the Assembly floor session, SaveCalifornia.com delivered to assemblymembers copies of pages from the authoritative biography on Milk, “The Mayor of Castro Street” by Randy Shilts, which details Milk’s horrible example for children.

“‘Harvey Milk Gay Day’ would teach schoolkids all about the life and very controversial values of Harvey Milk,” said Thomasson. “Based on the historical record of Milk’s sordid life, this could include teaching elementary and secondary schoolchildren that adult-child homosexual ‘sex’ is OK, having multiple sexual relationships at the same time is OK, and telling a very public lie is good if it ‘gets you ahead.’ This instruction, whether taught directly or indirectly, is not what parents want or children need.”


Randy Shilts, a homosexual San Francisco Chronicle reporter, wrote a favorable and sordid biography of Milk in “The Mayor of Castro Street.” The 1982 book detailed Milk’s sexual relationships with a 16-year-old, a 19-year-old and other young men:

  • “…sixteen-year-old McKinley was looking for some kind of father figure…At 33, Milk was launching a new life, though he could hardly have imagined the unlikely direction toward which his new lover would pull him.” (pages 30-31)
  • “It would be to boyish-looking men in their late teens and early 20’s that Milk would be attracted for the rest of his life.” (page 24)
  • “Harvey always had a penchant for young waifs with substance abuse problems.” (page 180)
  • “Harvey confided one night that at twenty-four, Doug was the oldest man Harvey had ever started an affair with.” (page 237)


Explaining Milk’s many flings and affairs with teenagers and young men, Randy Shilts writes how Milk told one “lover” why it was OK for him to also have multiple relationships simultaneously:

“As homosexuals, we can’t depend on the heterosexual model…We grow up with the heterosexual model, but we don’t have to follow it. We should be developing our own life-style. There’s no reason why you can’t love more than one person at a time. You don’t have to love them all the same. You love some less, love some more — and always be honest with everybody about where you’re at. They in turn can do the same thing and it can open up a bigger sphere.” (pages 237-238)


“He had not suffered this disgrace, he told a later campaign manager, but he knew the story would make good copy. If anyone said something to Harvey about his fondness for such stunts, he would gesture wildly as launched into a lecture. ‘Symbols, symbols, symbols,’ he insisted. Sure, he had not been kicked out of the military…The point of the story was to let people know that service people routinely do get kicked out. Besides, he once confided, ‘Maybe people will read it, feel sorry for me, and then vote for me.'” (Randy Shilts, The Mayor of Castro Street, p. 78-79)

The text of SB 572 states that “On Harvey Milk Day, exercises remembering the life of Harvey Milk, recognizing his accomplishments, and familiarizing pupils with the contributions he made to this state” shall be conducted; specifically, “all public schools and educational institutions are encouraged to observe…and…conduct suitable commemorative exercises.”

“This bill is not about ‘gay rights’ or ‘stopping harassment,'” said Thomasson. “Instead, SB 572 is outright promotion of everything Harvey Milk believed in — the entire gay, lesbian, bisexual, transsexual agenda pushed upon schoolchildren as young as kindergarten, without parental permission.”

    and now this:

    Harvey Milk to be Inducted into California Hall of Fame

    Earlier this week the California Museum’s California Hall of Fame announced it inductees for 2009. Among the list of 13 inductees, which includes actors, businessmen and writers, is former San Francisco county supervisor Harvey Milk. Harvey Milk is revered by homosexual activists as a leader in advocating for special rights to homosexuals. The legislature is expected next month to pass SB 572, legislation that will declare May 22 Harvey Milk Day in California.

    This is the fourth year the California Museum has inducted honorees into the California Hall of Fame. According to the California Museum’s Executive Director, Claudia French, “Being selected for this award is a distinction of great honor, one that is reserved for the best and the brightest.” Inductees are selected based on the criteria of whether they have “embody California’s innovative spirit and have made their mark on history.”

    The induction ceremony will be held December 1, 2009 at the California Museum in Sacramento. Inductees, or their surviving relatives, will be presented by the governor and first lady with the Spirit of California medals.

    “This ubiquitous honoring of Harvey Milk by President Obama, Governor Schwarzenegger, and the Academy Awards is a concerted effort to normalize homosexual behavior and promote it to the public,” explained Karen England, executive director of Capitol Resource Institute. “Harvey Milk may have inspired some, but he should not be honored simply for his sexual orientation. If that is the basis for his induction, this recognition diminishes the significance of the honor.”

    Any logical mind would read your points, and easily notice your terribly slanted and illogical attempt to twist facts… solely to justify your bias and hatred.

    The points you presented are completely unfounded and based on hearsay.

    Harvey Milk Day would not be treated any differently than “Cesar Chavez Day”, or “Martin Luther King Jr. Day”.

    Just a little reminder, Harvey Milk was a California elected official. He stood up for the rights of Gay and Lesbian Californians… at a time when NOONE ELSE would, at a time when the Gay and Lesbian community had ABSOLUTELY NO civil rights. How is that not heroic?

    He was an elected official murdered in cold blood… and his killer was let off with a “slap on the wrist”.

    If you hate gay people… just say it.

    Just come right out and say, “I don’t like gay people. I think it’s wrong. I do not want them to have “heroes” or “rights”. I want them to be illegal.” Just say it. I’m sure you’ll find others who agree.

    But please, don’t hide behind twisted points. Don’t try to influence people with lies. That is downright sneaky and extremely UN-Christian.

    It is now well known that pandering to religious hate and prejudice is the gay extremists’ modus operandi. They count that this religious hate will somehow fortify their bogus “marriage equality” arguments. Well, they are mistaken. Increasing numbers of people, religious or not, are seeing what this is all about.

    This is not about “equality”, it is about sex. Homosexual extremists are trying to exploit the institution of marriage to further legitimize and promote homosexuality .

    The target are our children. Radical homosexuals would love to be able to “marry” so that children in public schools would be taught that a homosexual lifestyle is no different than a heterosexual one.

    There are no “points” to twist, only simple facts.

    ““I don’t like gay people. I think it’s wrong. I do not want them to have “heroes” or “rights”. I want them to be illegal.” “

    Jeb, no one here is advocating anything of the kind. Is it beyond reasoning that people disagree with Harvey Milk Day for social, moral and educational reasons? Hate is such an easy out. Blame it all on hate, then you don’t have to spend time worrying about whether your own logic is flawed. Seriously, 52% of California soundly supported proposition 8 and you truly believe it was all based on hate? Only 17% of Californians support Harvey Milk Day. Are their positions all based on hate too?

    Hate is not a good motivator my friend, there’s something missing in your logic.

    Do you think kindergarteners and first graders should be taught to admire and consider for themselves the homosexual-bisexual-transsexual lifestyle?

    Do you think children should be “familiarized” with this without being told that “LGBT” lifestyles have the highest rates of HIV, syphilis, gonorrhea and other dangerous diseases?

    Do you think schoolchildren should perform “suitable commemorative exercises” honoring the political agenda of homosexual activist Harvey Milk — all without parental permission?

    No Way! Bad idea for kids, bad idea for schools.

    Given the number of pastors and priests convicted of child abuse, I certainly don’t want my child exposed to christianity. It’s obviously immoral, and should be banned.

    Just two of the pastors convicted in the last month:

    “I just don’t want him to hurt anybody else,” the woman Alamo took as a “bride” at age eight said on the stand, weeping. “I don’t want him to touch my little sister. She’s only 12.”

    A pastor convicted of stealing $202,000 from his former church and its insurance company was ordered Monday to serve 10 months in jail.

    Zoe, what is your point? If you don’t want to be a Christian, that’s your choice. If you want to take the actions of a few and extrapolate, that’s your prerogative. You’re free to choose to be buddist, muslim, christian, jewish, agnostic, mystic, republican, democrat, independent, marxist, it doesn’t matter. That’s your choice. Isn’t America great?

    Zoe, would you be okay with a special commemorative day named after a child abuser? Neither would I.

    No such day is merited for Mr. Milk the man nor for Mr. Milk the politician nor for Mr. Milk the victim of murder.

    However, perhaps you can state the single most important reason that Mr. Milk ought to be commemorated by all of California.

    I am not saying there is no such reason, but I’d ask you to consider adding a substantive comment that is directly on-topic.
