Michael Schwartz Has A Plan

Having already examined a list of hard hitting topics straight from Free Republic threads, the Value Voters summit decided to tackle something called "The New Masculinity", and much to Troy Polamalu's disappointment, it was not a discussion on the NFL's over the top fines for physical play.
The New Masculinity

Feminism has wreaked havoc on marriage, women, children and men. It is time to redress the disorder it has wrought and that must start with getting the principles and ideals for a new "masculinism" right. Such a "masculinism" will have its dovetailing counterpart in a new "feminism" for they mutually define each other and, in nature, are meant to be complementary. This panel will begin this exploration.
A conservative conference panel that can't discuss "masculinity" without going into how much they fear/hate women doesn't exactly qualify as news, but when a prominent Senator's Chief of Staff decides to hijack the panel for his own personal craziness...

A few minutes into his speech, Schwartz moved to the topic of pornography, calling it a “blight” and a “disease” that parents’ “sons” would encounter. Noting that he was about to get “politically incorrect,” Schwartz said that it is his “observation that boys at that age have less tolerance for homosexuality than just about any other class of people”:

SCHWARTZ: But it is my observation that boys at that age have less tolerance for homosexuality than just about any other class of people. They speak badly about homosexuality. And that’s because they don’t want to be that way. They don’t want to fall into it. And that’s a good instinct. After all, homosexuality, we know, studies have been done by the National Institute of Health to try to prove that its genetic and all those studies have proved its not genetic. Homosexuality is inflicted on people.

Schwartz then recalled “a very good friend” of his “who was in the homosexual lifestyle for a long time,” saying that he “had good conversations about, about the malady that he suffered.” He then relayed “an astonishingly insightful remark” his friend had made about the relationship between pornography and being gay:

SCHWARTZ: And one of the things that he said to me, that I think is an astonishingly insightful remark. He said, “all pornography is homosexual pornography because all pornography turns your sexual drive inwards. Now think about that. And if you, if you tell an 11-year-old boy about that, do you think he’s going to want to go out and get a copy of Playboy? I’m pretty sure he’ll lose interest. That’s the last thing he wants.” You know, that’s a, that’s a good comment. It’s a good point and it’s a good thing to teach young people.

So just to recap:
  • Step One: Rile up homophobia in young boys.
  • Step Two: Convince young boys that watching men and women having sex will make them gay.
  • Step Three: Pornography ends because young boys are scared they will become gay.
  • Step Four: Homosexuality ends, because porn is no longer forcing people to be gay, or something
There's so much to like about a plan centered around convincing people that sex=bad. I'm sure that message will resonate soundly with the teenage boys he's hoping to reach.

Oh yeah, and just to reiterate, this is the completely serious plan from Senator Tom Coburn's top adviser to end pornography and gay people.

Kind of defies parody, doesn't it?
