Some fella wrote an “Hello, I’m Gay and Conservative” article for the left-wing Huffington Post
Writer-Screwing website. He gives the Blogfather a shoutout, which is nice. but the article itself is pretty much nothing that hasn’t been said here before. It’s interesting that one of his main points is that leftists can only think in terms of stereotypes and cliches, and he can’t have a dialogue with them because they are uninterested in hearing any opinion that isn’t in lockstep with their ideology. The comments from the HuffPo’s “tolerant and enlightened” lefty readership prove him right.
My experience with gay republicans are that they were not only raised in Christian households but politically charged ones. They were taught early on that being Christian means you are Republican and to go against Republican idealogy means you are going against God. I was like this when I was younger and struggled with deep internalized homophobia. Thankfully I got help and grew in my idea of God. You have to have some form of dislike for yourself and for people like you to support ideology that goes against you. [Yeah, the old “self-hating” cliche. They are *still* using that.]
Speaking of lame, tiresome cliches.
You’re trying to apologize for a politics very determinedly associated with hatred and oppression of gay people. Being gay might not define you – but supporting and enabling anti-gay bigots is MERELY pathetic. That would be why the “community” is uninterested in your voice – you’re trying to sell National Socialism to Jews.
BTW, did you know every Republican candidate has called for the extermination of gays?
Why would any gay person / American attach themselves to a party that had eighteen (?) presidential candidates align themselves with organizations that not only openly called for the deaths of gays but insist that Jews should not receive any rights under our constitution.
We won’t get into what they think of Women, Blacks, Hispanics, etc, etc.
Hey, it was said by a leftist homosexual ideologue on Huffington Post, so it must be true, right?
About half the comments to the article have been supportive; but they all came from conservatives.
