"Turns out the project is the brainchild of Luke Montgomery and Nate Guidas, the boyfriended do-gooders who made a similar video for their Unf–k The Gulf campaign [of which they sent '$12,000 for charities in the Gulf working to make a difference']."
"UnF—k the Gulf's fundraising efforts center on T-shirt sales ... The abundance of expletives in the duo’s viral video—and particularly the use of children to deliver some of them—has already caught the ire of Bill O’Reilly, who devoted a recent segment on his Fox News show condemning Montgomery for using kids in a F bomb-laden ad."*
You may remember Luke Sissyfag, the former ACT-UP activist who once distributed graphically illustrated condom packages to schoolchildren, regularly pranced before cameras in lipstick, eyeliner, and pink plastic hair barrettes, and championed the idea of a natural gay "queerness." He now calls himself Luke Montgomery and appears on fundamentalist radio programs to decry the "gay lifestyle" as "totally devoid of any moral character" and consisting of nothing but rampant sex and continual drug use. He says anti-discrimination laws are "fascistic," promoted by a gay community that doesn't feel good about itself.
"The best named activist of the 1990s - "queer" turned "Christianist" - has emerged again. Yes, he's now a bear."
"Unf*ck the Gulf's fundraising efforts center on T-shirt sales. For every $13.00 shirt sold, the charity donates $5.00 to environmental organizations, most of them now actively working in the Gulf.
... At Luke Montgomery's website ... you can also buy a $1 lapel pin and a $2 bumper sticker. I see no indication that the money he collects from selling these additional items will go to charity, so nobody should assume that it will. It'll no doubt end up in the same place that 61% profit from his T-shirt sales is going! Is anybody tracking the donations, I wonder?" *
"Sorry, but as a longtime resident of Seattle who remembers him from the days of Luke Sissyfag, I have to seriously question anything Mr. Montgomery is involved in. He is a relentless self-promoter who will do anything to claim the spotlight. Luke started out as a self-proclaimed AIDS activist, best known for attacking openly Gay and supportive officials who disagreed with him about AIDS policies. When we stopped paying attention to him in Seattle, he suddenly rejected the Gay lifestyle (sic) and began appearing on fundamentalist radio and TV, decrying Gay people ... now he's Gay again, and jumping on whatever cause of the moment gets him on camera for a minute or two. Before this, he was collecting money for Haiti and flying himself and his boyfriend there to distribute medicine without any medical training ... I really can't encourage GLBT people to give this media whore a penny of our money ... part of me feels sorry for the guy because he's a mess, but generally I find his actions to be somewhere between counter-productive and unforgiveable."*
"Heck, Bill O'Reilly! Let's use the word FUCK again. What can we append it to? Yeah ... that NOH8 campaign has gotten tons of attention. Look at all of the celebrities who have had their NOH8 photo taken, not to mention the videos starring them and the vast media exposure. They're online store is doing incredbly well.
Fuck, I got it. 'FUCKHATE' ... err, I mean 'FCKH8.' We're gonna make millions!
Oh, honey, be sure to send FOXNews an e-mail and link to the website. We could use the controversy again. Ching-ching!.
