TVC's Andrea Lafferty: A Zombie Queen in Pastel

06/24/2010 05:12 am ET | Updated May 25, 2011

The Traditional Values Coalition's Executive Director, Andrea Lafferty, has been making the media rounds to spew her anti-gay venom to anyone who'll listen. First she penned an op-ed for Roll Call newspaper full of lies about ENDA and then she was invited to debate HRC's Allyson Robinson on CBS's Washington Unplugged webcast. sin_of_lying.jpgBilerico Project Associate Editor Dr. Jillian Weiss responded in Roll Call and it has sent Lafferty over the edge.

Lafferty likes to couch her bigotry in that "I'm just using common sense" type of argument that invariably means that "common sense" has been replaced for "truth." She tries to get her followers to make a leap in logic that might seem appropriate, but on closer examination is found to be either completely factually untrue or a logical fallacy along the lines of "Cutting people is a crime. Surgeons cut people. Therefore, surgeons are criminals."

Since Lafferty had to resort to personal attacks on Dr. Weiss and blatant lies to try and persuade her sheeple, I thought I'd respond with the "straight" truth. It might not be nice, but it's common sense - and it's true.

Feel free to read Lafferty's piece, "'Transgender' Man Attacks TVC," before reading my parody. I refuse to print even a blockquote of the literary vomit and ad hominem attacks against Dr. Weiss.

Zombie 'Queen' Attacks Bilerico Editor

Lafferty-729546.jpgApril 22, 2010 - It seems that Dr. Jillian Weiss's expose of the fearmongering and scare tactics behind the Traditional Values Coalition's attacks on the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) has outraged the mob of zombies' "Queen."

Andrea Lafferty is an undead mutant that lives off of fear and ignorance instead of the usual zombie fare of fresh brains. Humans who are able to think are quickly able to stave off the troubled monster's advances. It is unclear whether Lafferty is simply a reincarnation of other historical undead wretches. She may be the latest manifestation of Jack the Ripper, Typhoid Mary or Saddam Hussein. However, no one would know these things by reading her published bio.

She styles herself the "Queen" of brain dead obsessive fanatics and regularly targets LGBT people for attack by her followers. In addition, she's also rumored to be the star of several porn videos featuring her stomping kittens while wearing only high heels and a vapid smile.

Lafferty is a pathological liar with grandiose delusions. She can find the word "sociopath" in the dictionary.

One of Lafferty's recent attempts to feed by scaring her mob of witless sheeple was sparked by Dr. Jillian Weiss's commentary published in Roll Call on April 22.

During the attack, Lafferty tries to insinuate that 38 states have laws outlawing transgender teachers and that the government will force parents to stop meeting their children's teachers in person to discuss the child's progress. By ending the tradition of parent-teacher conferences, children will be easier prey for the religious indoctrination demanded by these radical fiends.

ENDA-like laws have been enacted around the country without any danger to religious liberties or disabled veterans. Earlier this month, Lafferty claimed that ENDA would allow VA hospital employees to molest amputees.

What Lafferty neglected to mention is that molestation is against the law and regularly prosecuted regardless of the sexual orientation of the predator. Apotemnophilia, or sexual arousal associated with the stump of an amputee, however, is not a sexual orientation and would not be covered under ENDA.

red_herring2.gifLafferty's red herring usage of her favorite "paraphilia" or sexual deviation instead of sexual orientation or gender identity is a dead giveaway that she is attempting to feed off her readers' fear and confusion.

The truth, however, will always trump unholy deceptions. A lie told strictly to stimulate fear and loathing of a minority group is an even bigger affront to a moral society. While she styles herself as the leader of a "traditional values" clatch, her lack of truthfulness marks her as a zombie impostor.

HIPAA was created to protect the health privacy records of individuals like Andrea Lafferty. It includes confidentiality on mental health issues like compulsive lying. Mental health privacy is exempted when it involves the abuse of children or when law enforcement needs to identify a suspect.

Fortunately, the majority of Americans - including 77% of Republicans - support non-discrimination in the workplace and refuse to fall for such obvious duplicity.

Removing an infected believer from the evil Queen's clutches is not easy. In fact, a necessary part of the decontamination process includes re-engaging the victim's critical thinking skills.

The zombie witch's "right" of free speech is protected by the United States Constitution; the Bible's 9th Commandment - "Thou shalt not bear false witness" - has been violated.

In a separate attack aimed at America's schoolchildren, the blackguard creature attempted to stir controversy by citing a sham medical association. The American College of Pediatricians is not the same as the well-respected American Academy of Pediatrics. In fact, the nation's pediatricians recently rebuked the fake medical group for attempting to deceive the public and for not acknowledging "the scientific and medical evidence regarding sexual orientation, sexual identity, sexual health, or effective health education." In fact, the group is little more than an ex-gay group masquerading as a professional health organization. The Traditional Values Coalition continues to quote from the phony pediatric group on their website.

wicked_img.jpgThe plain truth is that sociopaths have the following characteristics: glibness and superficial charm, pathological lying, grandiose sense of self, incapacity to love, shallow emotions, promiscuous behavior, lack of remorse or empathy, and they are often child sexual abusers. Zombie Queens like Andrea Lafferty exhibit many of these traits.

Lafferty claims that ENDA will force schools to hire transgender teachers. ENDA does not establish any sort of quota for businesses or governmental entities to hire LGBT people.

The zombie Queen is attempting to play to parents' fears for the safety of their children. The move is reminiscent of 1978's Briggs Initiative, when religious fanatics attempted to ban gays and lesbians (and anyone who supported gay rights) from working in California's public schools. That ballot referendum failed after then Governor Ronald Reagan repeatedly urged the public to vote against it. Reagan is often cited as a hero of true social conservatives.

ENDA would extend federal employment discrimination protections currently provided based on race, religion, sex, national origin, age and disability to include sexual orientation and gender identity.

Lafferty and her ilk are not embarrassed or cowed by the revulsion most Americans and the majority of Christians feel after discovering her wicked schemes and plots. In fact, the venomous hag practically crows that the respected Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has listed her organization as a "hate group" along with other violent racist and militaristic groups advocating for the overthrow of the United States government.

Other groups listed as "haters" include the Ku Klux Klan, the Aryan Terror Brigade and other assorted neo-Nazi or skinhead varieties. SPLC has gone after Fred Phelps and his Westboro Baptist Church as well. Phelps leads vulgar protests at the funerals of fallen soldiers, people who have died from AIDS, and famous gays and lesbians that include signs reading, "God Hates Fags" and "Faggots Rot In Hell."

Many of those same toxic clusters shrug off the SPLC watchlist as a tool of the "leftwing." This baseless charge isn't gaining favor though as all Americans - both liberal and conservative - want to keep track of violent criminals and possible terrorists.

The SPLC confines itself to tracking Holocaust deniers, anti-immigrants, black separatist, anti-gay, neo-Nazi, skinhead and white nationalist organizations. It doesn't track websites like Red State Update or michelemalkin.com or other smaller groups spewing hatred from their web sites or from their leaders. zombie_queen.jpgSeveral of these groups openly seek the violent overthrow of our nation.

Like any undead monster, Lafferty can't stand it when you shine the light of truth upon her and yet she craves the negative attention she gets for acting out.

"Actually, it is a badge of honor for TVC to be listed by the SPLC as a 'hate group,'" she hissed as Fred Phelps gave her a high five. Christians nationwide wept.

On April 23, Lafferty published a poisonous screed attacking Bilerico Project editor Dr. Jillian Weiss on her blog. In it she had to resort to insinuations and outright lies to attempt to besmirch the good name of a productive American. Tragically, this creature of the night will continue to haunt parents' dreams until they arm themselves with that deadliest of weapons, knowledge.
