Anti-LGBT Group in ‘Ethics’ Clothing Targets Stonewall Dems

Yet, when pressed further, the group’s ideological intentions become clear.

“We kind of go after any of these people who support leftist candidates, especially,” admits Doyle. “And they are, I believe, homosexuals. And homosexuals are completely united politically and everybody else is not. You see? And that’s why they are as successful as they’ve been for such a small number of people in the population. So we wanted to check them out especially to see whatever they’re doing, they’re doing it according to the law. Because they are united in such a way that it’s almost a conspiracy to impose their will politically on society.”

Doyle went on to gripe about the inequity posed by the LGBT community’s solidarity–it’s unfair how they are able to protect each other and promote their causes by standing together politically, he argued. This way, the cohesive front has an advantage over average Joe who may not find himself as part of a larger organization. (Hmm.A larger organizationlike a political action committee that goes after groups that don’t align with their own political beliefs?)

As for the NDO, Doyle says he is heartily opposed to the “special protections and attention” given to the LGBT community and can’t quite fathom why the city council caved under pressure. “If a person doesn’t like a certain group of people, that’s his business not the city council’s. Actually, I think we just need to change the whole city council over there,” said Doyle, a Tea Party activist who resides in the Woodlands, a suburb North of Houston.  

The proposed attempt wouldn’t be his first foray into confronting COSA.

Following the passage of domestic partner benefits by SA city council, Doyle and the TEAB began investigating council members and ultimately flooded the Texas Ethics Commission with more than 1,000 complaints of campaign finance violations. The group writes, “In this case, the approval by the San Antonio City Council of spousal benefits for homosexual couples brought scrutiny by the above mentioned complainants.”(According to TEC records, the complaints have not resulted in the issuance of violations to any members as of now.)

The group similarly investigated the Austin City Council when they voted to boycott business with Arizona after the state passed a harsh anti-immigration law, and Planned Parenthood, for, in Doyle’s words, promoting “baby killing.”
In a one-two right-wing punch, 2010 TEAB sent mailers to Planned Parenthood Houston donors notifying them of the TEC complaints they filed against the organization while also attacking openly gay Houston Mayor Anise Parker’s partner—the reproductive rights group’s PAC treasurer at the time. In selecting Parker for mayor, voters “endorse both homosexuality AND baby killing,” the letter reads.
