Nullifying NAMBLA For Nincompoops!

By Khalil Amani

Howdy folks! It's ya boy Khalil Amani back with some more knowledge to kick! I wrote this blog three years ago in 2017, but as we enter the seventh (7th) anniversary of Afrika Bambaataa getting stabbed, I think it's only apropos that I rehash some of this stuff. People like YouTuber and demagogue, Hassan Campbell have made his bones by attacking gay people, I imagine, because gayness has been part of his life... from allegedly getting "thighed" by Afrika Bambaataa to having a son who grew up to become a transgender woman.

And so, Hassan Campbell has spent the last four years "going in" on gay people, even putting gay people in bed with aberrant, off-kilter and fringe organizations such as NAMBLA, a group of horny gay white guys who have been trying to make it cool... and normal... and correct... and okay for men to have sex with boys! Yes! Hassan, the victimizer that he has been in these YouTube streets has done everything... from "outing" past victims of Afrika Bambaataa to victimizing 20% of the world's population... the gays... to try and prove a point about his own alleged child molestation and I believe, the internal wrestling with his own sexuality at 43 years of age. Why else would Hassan attack a marginalized group like gay people? He's gotta be struggling with internalized homosexuality!

Whenever a homophobe like Hassan Campbell (though there be a motley crew on YouTube homophobes!) goes in on gay people, I'm reminded of the old saying, "Those who protest most are most suspect!" I think Hassan is lowkey, down-low gay, because there's simply no reason to go to the lengths that he goes to, to denigrate and disrespect gay people, especially a nigga who has a gay transgender daughter and I think another lesbian daughter! That nigga should be raising the banner of inclusion, for his children's sake, not spouting religious bullshit that supposedly condemns homosexuals! Hassan was supposed to get his "Dwyane Wade" on and openly support his trans child, not condemn her!

So this brings me to the subject of NAMBLA for all you nincompoops! Are you a nincompoop? Well, here's the definition. Is it your shoe size? 

Nincompoop: Lacking common sense, silly, no brain, fool, imbecile, blockhead, donkey, cretin, moron, dummy, ignoramus, jackass, nitwit, numskull, pinhead, simpleton.

By the time you get to the end of this blog and you still think that NAMBLA (North American Man/Boy love Association) has power to effect change—or still relevant in the LGBT conversation—or part of the LGBT team, then you’re a nincompoop! Not only are you a nincompoop, but a rabble-rouser, an agent provocateur and a demagogue.

For starters—NAMBLA was founded in 1978. This year (2020) will be 42 years that NAMBLA has been in existence, and yet, still, they have never been able to successfully enact any laws whereby they can fuck children! 42 years of nothingness! Let that sink in! And let this sink in. Their numbers are less than 1,000. 

NAMBLA was a fringe organization amongst the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) community—a far, far leftist group that were the outcast—an anathema to LGBT progress. The masses of gay people did not back NAMBLA’s platform of fucking with children. Human Rights Campaign (HRC) is the largest LGBT civil rights advocacy group and political lobbying organization. Gregory King of the Human Rights Campaign said, "NAMBLA is not a gay organization ... they are not part of our community and we thoroughly reject their efforts to insinuate that pedophilia is an issue related to gay and lesbian civil rights.”

GLAADGay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation went so far as to putting out a resolution stating, “GLAAD deplores the North American Man Boy Love Association's (NAMBLA) goals, which include advocacy for sex between adult men and boys and the removal of legal protections for children. These goals constitute a form of child abuse and are repugnant to GLAAD.”

NAMBLA ain’t never had a safe-haven amongst gay people! NAMBLA ain’t never had a home amongst gay people! In 1993, the International Lesbian and Gay Association (ILGA) achieved United Nations consultative status. NAMBLA, being part of the international group (outside of America, that is!) was forced out of the organization for being a pedophile group. America withheld $119 million to the United Nations until it was verified that no pedophile group was part of the ILGA or any other gay rights group. In 1994 the ILGA expelled NAMBLA from the international organization—America’s first pedophile group.

Wikipedia writes this of NAMBLA: “By the mid-1980s, NAMBLA was virtually alone in its positions and found itself politically isolated…Some gay rights organizations, burdened by accusations of child recruitment and child abuse, had abandoned the radicalism of their early years and had "retreat[ed] from the idea of a more inclusive politics", choosing instead to appeal to the mainstream. Support for "groups perceived as being on the fringe of the gay community," such as NAMBLA, vanished in the process….In 1994 the Board of Directors of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force (NGLTF) adopted a resolution on NAMBLA that said, "NGLTF condemns all abuse of minors, both sexual and any other kind, perpetrated by adults. Accordingly, NGLTF condemns the organizational goals of NAMBLA and any other such organization."

Listening to the YouTube scuttlebutt of the conscious community, you’d think that NAMBLA was about to enact some laws to allow men and boys to get it on! Do they ever mention that there are gay and lesbian people that serve our country in politics? Why hasn’t NAMBLA been able to get gay and lesbian lawmakers on their side? You do know that there are LGBT people in politics? Indeed!

Over the years, there have been LGBT folk who have served our country and still serving our country honorably, without allowing NAMBLA’s influence! Lesbian Senator Tammy Baldwin from Wisconsin and gay Senator Harris Wollford of Pennsylvania. House of Representatives gay & lesbian members include Stewart McKinney, Robert Bauman, Gerry Studs, Jon Hinson, Barney Frank, Steve Gunderson, Jim Kolbe, Michael Huffington, Mark Foley, Mike Michaud, Jared Polis, David Cicilline, Sean Patrick, Mark Takano, Mark Pocan, Kyrsten Sinema.

This is the shit that those who speak about NAMBLA conveniently forget to tell their audience! (Or is it that they don’t know or just like to incite emotions? YouTuber Hassan "Poppy" Campbell and his kind swear by this now-defunct group.)

If NAMBLA was so goddamned powerful, why haven’t they been able to influence the aforementioned LGBT folk who are already in positions of power? Again, after 42 years, why hasn’t NAMBLA been able to enact any laws regarding man/boy love? I’ll tell you why! Because whether you're gay or straight, we know that fucking children is wrong!

YouTuber and Afrika Bambaataa victim, Hassan “Poppy” Campbell loves to bring up NAMBLA to make a point about gay rights. Ignorantly and rhetorically, he asks what do gays want? And then answers his own question, suggesting that gay people can live the same fruitful lives as straight people—as though gays can marry across the board—and have healthcare—and sign papers for sick loved ones—and aren’t discriminated when buying homes and employment. He narrows their struggle down to simple fucking. Even though Poppy has a gay child who can easily articulate life as a black gay/trans person, yet still, Hassan thinks it's just about the sex act. Why is Hassan's transgender child estranged from him? Because of that child's truth to live as trans/gay person. Hassan's answer to all his gay questions can be found in the very child he's chosen to shun.

This is a man, Hassan, who has a transgender daughter whom he’s distanced himself from, because of his child’s sexuality. Hassan should be like me—a straight advocate for gay people, since he has a gay child and even though I don’t have an LGBT son or daughter, civil and human rights aren’t just for straight people. Being molested by a man has made Hassan turn his anger towards all gay people, yet, in an ironic twist, he bore a gay child. Being molested by Afrika Bambaataa—a man, has made Hassan unable to love his son (or daughter) as a trans/gay person—and so, Hassan makes every excuse about how and why his child is trans. “It’s the water!” “It’s the culture!” “It’s the fluoride in the toothpaste!” “It’s the (phantom) ‘gay agenda’!” “It’s hip-hop music!” No! It’s the genetics betwixt Hassan and a woman that created this trans/gay child! I've said it before, but I'll say it again; Hassan will never be a bona fide advocate for child molestation as a homophobe. A child advocate must be without bias towards sexual preference.

I submit to you that the worst kind of parent is the parent who discriminates—who withholds love and support—whose love is conditional, based on sexual preference! The child that would bring home a partner of another race or same gender and a parent who would oppose these kinds of unions are the worst kinds of parents!

NAMBLA ain’t got shit to do with shit! NAMBLA was the red-headed stepchild of the gay rights movement, I tell ya! NAMBLA was to the gay rights movement what the Black Panthers were to America—a fringe organization operating on the periphery of a mainstream movement—the gay rights movement. They never had any power! Bringing up NAMBLA is simply an attempt at demagoguery! Hell! If you dig deep enough you’ll find some silly group that loves to fuck animals as well! That doesn’t mean that a bestiality movement is at our doorsteps! It simply means that in a First-World, Free & Democratic society, people will call perversion, "freedom." Stop being a nincompoop! NAMBLA ain’t never been shit to worry about! 42 years of man/boy love advocacy and they ain't got shit to show for it except controversy! I'm nullifying NAMBLA for all you nincompoops! Get to Googling and prove me wrong! Show me the inroads they've made in 42 years! The best you will find is a documentary about their fuckery!

AGE OF CONSENT. In the state of New York, the legal consenting age to have sex is 17 years old. Under 16 but older than 13 can consent with a person who is no more than 4 years old. What about around the world? In China-14 yrs. old, Japan-18 (13 with restrictions), Germany-18 (14 with restrictions), UK-16, France-15, India-18, Italy-14, Brazil-14 (12 with restrictions), Philippines-18 (12 with restrictions), Israel-16 (14 with restrictions), Canada-16, United States-16 to 18, Mexico-12 to 18.

World-wide, pedophilia is subjective, depending on what country you're in. Afrika Bambaataa loves Brazil with its age of consent of 14 and 12 years old depending on locale. Again, looking at pedophilia thought the lens of the world, we would have to agree that pedophilia is not a concrete and definitive thingy! Had Hassan Campbell grown up in places like China, Italy, Brazil, Mexico and a few other countries, we would not be having this child molestation debate, because indeed, those countries allow for children between 12 and 17 to have sex with adults. The BMW that Hassan is suing Afrika Bambaataa for is only the result of having been "molested" in a country where the legal limit in most states is eighteen.

In my next vlog, I shall go deeper into NAMBLA on some "Six Degrees of Separation" type stuff and show you the connection between NAMBLA, Dr. Malachi York, Noble Drew Ali, Afrika Bambaataa and the Moors. Oh! You didn't know that a case can be made that Afrika Bambaataa's pederasty (boy fucking) can be linked back to Dr. York and the Moorish Science Temple of America? Well stay tuned, because my "whet" pen is smokin' hot these days!
