Dave Wilson - Your Campaign of HATE Will Not Win - UPDATE

Once again the haters in Houston have nothing better to do but to attack the LGBT community, more specifically the Transgender community.  I for one am tired of all of Anti - LGBT rhetoric that you and your elected and clergy friends are trying to use against me and community. At this point in the game YOU LOST, you lost against HERO (so far), and you damn sure lost your fight against LGBT community gaining the right to get married. 

For some time you have made attempts to disrupt the live of millions of people, not just LGBT folks. Your last attempt at office was a sham, yes, you won at the expense of a predominantly Black community who lacks the resources to research and properly vet who they are voting for. You are a predator of the worst kind, with full awareness of the cost associated with your attempts to get were you want in order to do nothing with the power you desire. In Wilson's own words, when challenged by KHOU during their story on his PRETENDING TO BE BLACK to get elected to the HCC Board of Trustees: "Every time a politician talks, he's out there deceiving voters."

"Wilson, a gleeful political troublemaker, printed direct mail pieces strongly implying that he's black. His fliers were decorated with photographs of smiling African-American faces -- which he readily admits he just lifted off websites -- and captioned with the words Please vote for our friend and neighbor Dave Wilson.

One of his mailers said he was Endorsed by Ron Wilson, which longtime Houston voters might easily interpret as a statement of support from a former state representative of the same name who's also African-American. Fine print beneath the headline says Ron Wilson and Dave Wilson are cousins, a reference to one of Wilson's relatives living in Iowa
." - KHOU


Don't you mean that every time you "talk" that you are "out there deceiving voters?' It is no secret that you are strongly anti LGBT, you thought that you were hiding in plain sight. We know who you are sir and how you have tried to spread hate for years. Parading around as a Democrat and a Republican with the same consistent platform of half assed, disproven, hate-filled anti LGBT rhetoric. It may have been successful with that 2001 proposition to ban city employee benefits for same-sex or unmarried partners, but mark my words, you WILL GO DOWN AND HARD.

From the Houston Chronicle in Wilson's own words: (11/7/2001)

"Gay rights, a theme in several city elections of the last 25 years, was the burning issue. Calling homosexuality a sin, sign company owner and conservative activist Dave Wilson forced the city charter change proposal onto the ballot by gathering signatures from more than 20,000 voters.

He started the movement in February after Mayor Lee Brown, a gay-rights supporter, proposed that the same-sex partners of city workers be eligible for the benefits. Brown put the idea on hold later with the agreement of gay leaders. But Wilson, a former candidate for mayor and councilman, pressed on with the referendum.


"We are very pleased at the outcome," Wilson said Tuesday night. "There are some things that need to happen to continue with the effort for family values and marriage in this community."
Wilson, outspent by his campaign opposition, said he would have piled up a more impressive victory if
"the Christian community" had joined his cause publicly.

"Questions need to be asked" about the reluctance of conservatives to campaign for his proposition, he said.

Wilson said he spent about $100,000 of his own money on the campaign through his organization called Houstonians for Family Values, and raised about $30,000 more. His opposition, People for a Fair Houston, spent roughly three times more and was steered by Grant Martin, re-election campaign manager for Annise Parker, City Council's only openly gay member.

Martin said Tuesday night that a victory for Wilson meant that advocates of equal rights for gays need to do a better job of educating voters about such issues."

What many of you may not know, is that for the past few months Wilson has been making attempts at gathering signatures to attack the TRANSGENDER community:


"PETITION FOR A CHARTER AMENDMENT TO PROHIBIT MEN (WHO PERCEIVE OR EXPRESS THEMSELVES AS WOMEN) FROM USING WOMEN'S SEX - SEGREGATED FACILITIES OR WOMEN (WHO PERCEIVE OR EXPRESS THEMSELVES AS MEN) FROM USING THE MEN'S SEX - SEGREGATED FACILITIES."

Now look closer at the petition, which he mailed out to Houstonians:

- He already has their voter registration info on the form with a bar code.
- All they have to do is sign an date

This petitions for a charter amendment that would require the city to change all policy so that gender is interpreted as the gender a person was assigned at birth. It would also require "all entities doing business with the city to abide by the same definition."

******THIS IS AN ALL CALL TO THE LGBT COMMUNITY TO TAKE A STAND AGAINST DAVE WILSON, SHOULD THE CITY OF HOUSTON ACCEPT THIS PETITION *******

I want you to know that, regardless of how this scenario goes, this is a warning to the community at large that we need to be ready for challenges to our rights. Yes, we now have HERO and even the right to marry, but Wilson and his friends will try to chip away at us and we need to be ready.

Not long after making the original post above, THIS HAPPENED:



Then today (7/10/15): "After the city rejecting his petitions, Dave Wilson has filed a lawsuit against the City of Houston.
So yes, another lawsuit with an end goal that would damage our city's reputation.
It should be noted that Dave Wilson is a current Houston Community College Trustee, but rather than gaining notoriety doing his elected job, his quest to deny LGBT people equality is what he has become famous for." - HOUequality

HERE IS THE LAW SUIT:



I have confidence that the case will be rejected, but you cant put anything past a hater.
