San Francisco Values: The Sequel

By Bill O'Reilly

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | A couple of weeks ago in San Francisco, the following proclamation was issued: "Be it resolved that I, Gavin Newsom, Mayor of the City and County of San Francisco, congratulate Colt Studios on the occasion of their (sic) 40th anniversary and proclaim February 23, 2007 as Colt Studio Day in San Francisco!"


That evening, the Colt folks held a big party in the city by the bay attended by State Assemblyman Mark Leno and other local dignitaries.


There is, however, one small problem with all this, and it is spelled out on the Colt website, which states: "come inside to experience the hottest man-on-man action!"


Somehow, I don't thinking they're talking about the World Wrestling Association here.


No, Colt Studios is a major gay porn outfit that markets hard-core films all over the world. There are many movies available, including the "legendary bodies series — the pinnacle of masculine erotica."


So the logical question becomes why, exactly, does Colt Studios rate a "day" in San Francisco. I put that to Mayor Newsom, who said he didn't really know about the proclamation. Somebody in his office just signed his name without telling him, according to the mayor. In the future, he said, he'd "review" the proclamations himself.


Might be a good idea.


But Assemblyman Leno was aghast that I would ask about this. He told the San Francisco Chronicle that "the owners of the studio are tax-paying, law-abiding San Francisco employers who promote safe sex."

Leno went on to tell the newspaper that the Colt "products" had "contributed to his development as a gay man."


This, of course, is the same Mark Leno who torpedoed tough legislation to punish child molesters. The good folks in California had to put a referendum on the ballot in order to pass "Jessica's Law" because Leno and his cronies blocked it in the legislature.


Mark Leno also had no problem with the San Francisco Board of Supervisors passing an ordinance banning military recruiting in city schools. Nor did he object to the supervisors passing a resolution condemning a Christian youth rally at AT&T Park, the home of the Giants. The supervisors called the rally "anti-gay and anti-choice."


When my book "Culture Warrior" was released last fall, a number of critics put forth that I exaggerated the agenda of the secular-progressive (SP) movement. On the basis of what's happening in San Francisco, I was naive. The S-P's are crazier then I thought.


I mean, think about it. Even if you believe, as I do, that adults should be able to consume so called "adult entertainment" without government intrusion, don't children live in San Francisco these days? "Hey, Louie, the mayor just said it's gay porn day. Do we have to go to school?"


San Francisco is one of America's great urban showplaces, but the city has been hijacked by radical politicians who are destroying it. Mayor Newsom is in alcohol rehab after having an affair with his best friend's wife, the homeless situation is out of control because the city gives everybody cash, and now these loons are honoring pornographers.
