It’s unfortunate that despite all the media bellyaching about the supposed racial component of the Tea Parties based on a handful of signs and the prejudices of those writing about the grassroots movement for the nation’s major dailies or reporting on it for the major broadcast networks (as well as minor cable news networks) that they have all but ignored the gay presence there.
Indeed, despite my calling our presence “infiltration,” it seems that I am not the only gay person to have been made welcome at such rallies. Since I first posted on the matter, I keep receiving reports, like this comment of gay people made welcome at Tea Parties:
Dude. Infiltrated? I just showed up at our local rallies, EVERYBODY knows I’m gay – NOBODY cares. I get TONS more hate at the (gay) bar cos I don’t like ol’ Bammy….
Brian’s experiences parallel my own. I find get more grief for being a gay conservative in gay circles than I do for being gay in conservative circles. But, I’ve said this before.
So, why doesn’t the MSM address this narrative?
