this book includes commercial examples, billboard ads, television show examples and more that the writer suggested hollywood do to get the country to change its view of homosexuals, and whats more, endorse them and shun all that dare speak against the movement. The scary thing ism every single last example was set forth in the 90s. Including his idea that the black community be used and paralleled with imaging referencing civil rights of the 60s. Until this day, you will be hardpressed to see a commercial that isnt attempting to say "love is love" and showing blacks and whites in love, and then a homosexual couple after the inter-racial one is presented in front of you. the point was to align the idea of a "southern racist" with those in opposition to their marketing plan. An Idea the book calls "bracketing." It is clear, that the country, was manipulated by hollywood homosexuals who took it upon themselves to use this marketing plan from the book. Even the movie "brokeback mountain" is made as an example before the movie existed, and how such a movie should be marketed. And guess what? it was.
the book included how the AIDS scare was bad, yet could be used to bolster the cause by showing how the common house dad could be gay and appear like anyone else. (tv dads were catching AIDS and also admitting to a gay life). Question all people. Especially a guy who claimed to have HIV in the onset of the AIDS scare, and left sports and suddenly was filthy rich, yet till this day, has shown no signs of it, and no one interviews him on it.

It should be noted that gay are notoriously racist white supremist,anti ethnic,catty and sadistic emotionally and are not the friend of straight women. They also are shallow,empty and will turn on anyone to get a few points. Their whole identity is wrapped up in their sexuality and they are heterophobics wanting to blur the lines of normalcy in their favor.
