Above, Mr Hazouri, adorned with LGBT stickers, meets with election workers from HRC (dark shirts) and Equality Florida (white shirts) to gain their help in his 2015 election bid.  For their candidates HRC/EF sent 95,000 mail pieces to 30,000 households, conducted 30,000 phone calls and 8,000 home visits, and undertook thousands of conversations with Jacksonville voters at over 50 community events and forums - all to join forces with the LGBT attack machine.  Review essay below. 

Hazouri Needs Comeuppance

2016Feb25: Lead Letter: Hazouri betrayed the public by withdrawing HRO bill

By Philip Wemhoff Thu, Feb 25, 2016

Tommy Hazouri betrayed the voters of Duval County.

Hazouri withdrew his LGBT bill in order to rob the public of a referendum on the issue. He will reintroduce his bill later, he states, after the referendum filing deadlines have passed.

To excuse his timing, Hazouri claims that he realized only in early February that his bill did not have the votes to pass.

Nonsense. It’s been known since the spring 2015 elections that he would not have 13 votes to override a veto.

His other claim, that he was surprised by public opposition, is a hoax. He was at Mayor Lenny Curry’s “conversation” meetings and knew the score before submitting his bill.

Come Election Day, voters should remember how this scoundrel schemed to prevent a public vote.

Hazouri slanders the community, calling it intolerant and unjust, and he eagerly joined the wealthy national LGBT movement to sacrifice this key holdout city to the power lust of the sordid LGBT attack machine.

Here are some facts about Hazouri’s allies, the national LGBT machine (unlike the local gay community which has some heartfelt stories to tell).

■ The machine hunted down and ruined supporters of California Prop-8.
■ It illegally published the names of donors to the National Organization for Marriage to incite retaliation.
■ It drummed Mozilla’s CEO out of his profession.
■ It persecutes Chick-fil-A and Hobby Lobby for their moral views.
■ It maintains an enemy list to facilitate retaliation.
■ It attacks liberty: Physician fired for warning against homosexual sex; campus speakers shouted down; instructors fired for explaining church doctrine; Bible groups banned from schools; LGBT speech controls at universities.

And the Oregon press reports that a 67-year-old co-founder of the Human Rights Campaign recently escaped child rape prosecution by means of his $250,000 payment to the boy’s family.

Citizens will know Hazouri and his colleagues Aaron Bowman and Jim Love by the unsavory company they keep, and we must never forget how they rigged the system to thwart the public’s right to vote.
