Baffled Left-Wing Journalist Discovers Gay Trump Supporter

Dave Eggers went around the country doing what the Democrat Media Complex didn’t do very much of during the election —- talking to voters outside The Bubble —- and despite hearing what they were saying, is still at the end of a very overlong article, still baffled why the left was rejected by most of the country.

In Michigan, he met a middle-aged gay man who supported Donald Trump. (Most leftists are unaware of the existence of gay people outside the coasts.)

Steven McManus has come out of the closet twice. First as a gay man, then as a Trump supporter. We were sitting at a coffee shop in Detroit’s Eastern Market neighbourhood, and McManus was almost vibrating. This was two days after Trump’s election, and McManus was elated – about the victory, yes, but more personally, about the fact that after Trump’s election, he’d had the courage to post a message on social media declaring his support of the president-elect.

“I lived a lot of my life as a closeted guy,” McManus said, “and the liberation I felt as a man coming out was similar to how I felt coming out for Trump. You really truly think you’re the only one who has these feelings. It’s liberating. I felt it was time to come out again.”

“Trump was the only candidate talking about the trade imbalance,” McManus said. “Being a businessman, a successful businessman, he understood why business decision-makers, at the highest levels of their companies, move their production overseas.” McManus was angry when auto companies, after receiving bailouts from the US government in 2009, continued to move production to Mexico. “In Detroit, we gave America the middle class. But this is now a false economy. The housing market is decimated, and the middle class is shrinking. I want someone to shake it up. Let’s move the whole country forward.”

McManus is not blind to the rareness of an openly gay man supporting Trump. “But I don’t have to vote a certain way based on my sexuality. In my mind we’ve moved beyond having to vote Democrat just because you’re gay.” And he’s not worried about a reversal of the hard-fought right to marriage gays just achieved. “We’ve got our rights now,” he said. “It’s settled.”

At the end of the article, Eggers is still pretty much convinced the reason Trump lost is racism and Misogyny. His closing argument:

We are entering an era where uniquely vindictive men will have uniquely awesome power. Dark forces have already been unleashed and terrible plans are being made. On 3 December, the Ku Klux Klan are holding their largest public rally in years, to celebrate Trump’s victory, which they claim as their own.

 

Transgender Showboating Destroys a Good School

Nova Classical Academy is a charter school in St. Paul Minnesota that emphasizes classical studies and academic rigor. It was renowned for the quality of its academic programs, and well-regarded by parents and students alike.

Then, two parents moved in; the husband a doctoral a PhD candidate in educational psychology at the University of Minnesota, where his research focuses on “the creation and implementation of gender inclusive policies and practices in K–12 public schools.” And… by amazing coincidence… the daddy who intends to make a career in the expanding field of Transgender Diversity… had a transgender five-year-old sondaughter. (And the mother knew their child was transgender because, despite being biologically male, he enjoys dancing and lip-synching to Beyoncé. Absolute proof-positive of transgenderism among five-year olds).

The school was eager to accommodate them, and they were eager to be accommodated.

In January 2016, Nova’s board of directors approved a comprehensive, interim “gender inclusion” policy. The policy later became permanent. Under the new policy, a student can choose his or her own gender without medical approval. The school must work with transgender students to “create a tailored gender transition plan.” Students are entitled to use the bathrooms, locker rooms, and overnight-trip sleeping facilities of the opposite sex. They also have a right to demand that others address them using their “preferred name” and pronouns. After the policy’s adoption, a committee recommended converting some school bathrooms to “gender neutral” status, while retaining others as “gender binary . . . (traditionally known as Boys/Girls bathroom).”

However, in the opinion of the “transgender” five-year-old parents, they were not quite accommodated enough, and so lawyers and the media got involved. The parents got to bask in the glow of media and social approval, while those who questioned whether changing the curriculum and culture of a school to accommodate a single (dubiously) transgender five-year-old was a good idea were attacked as deplorables.

And at the end of it… another progressive left success story.

Before October 14, 2015, the school was a thriving educational institution where families of widely differing beliefs coexisted happily in a common enterprise. Now bitterness and distrust are rampant. Friendships have been destroyed, and a significant number of families have left the school, which lost ninety-four students from last year to this year.

Like I said, a progressive success story.

Why Sally Kohn *Loves* Identity Politics

Sally Kohn loves her some identity politics.

In poll after poll [Note: No citation for these polls] most Americans embrace the gains won by identity politics. We should expand support, not abandon pluralist agenda.

Let’s be honest; in a world without identity politics, Sally Kohn would just be another dull-witted leftist, at best teaching at a community college. She has never said or written anything remotely interesting or original that would merit any loftier position. (I’d suggest she could “work” as a Diversity Coordinator, but a world without identity politics would also be a world without stupid bureaucratic make-work jobs for people with no valid skillsets.)

In a world with identity politics, she’s “The Official Media Spokeswoman for the LGBTQ Community,” with a fat contract for doing nothing more than spewing Democrat Party Talking Points and assuring white heterosexual liberals that all gay people agree with them.

And there are many, many like her in the Democrat Party and Democrat Media Complex.

Gays for Omar Mateen

Commenter Steve tips off this stupid group of stupid gay leftists: Gays Against Self-Defense Guns. (Known by it’s so-appropriate acronym, GAG.)

In the past four months, GAG activists performed several acts of civil disobedience. Demonstrators targeted the headquarters of BlackRock, one of the largest corporate shareholders of gun companies’ stock; the Reebok-sponsored CrossFit Games, which awarded their top athletes with Glock handguns; and the firearms manufacturer Sig Sauer in New Hampshire (a Sig Sauer semi-automatic rifle and a Glock semi-automatic pistol were the weapons used by the shooter at Pulse). During these protests, GAG activists distributed fact sheets containing information about gun deaths in America and occupied designated locations by chanting and holding “die-ins.” Others participated as “human beings”: haunting white-veiled walkers who held posters with photos and names of victims.

Thank the Goddess that Orlando Pulse was a “Gun-Free Safe Space.” It could have really gotten ugly if anyone had been allowed to shoot back at Omar Mateen.

It’s funny that the words “human beings” are in scare quotes. The phrase “fact sheet” should also be in scare quotes since the “facts” the anti-2nd Amendment left cites are almost entirely inaccurate or hysterically misleading.

But you know what this stupid group of stupid gay leftists supports wholeheartedly? Hate Crime Hoaxes.

So, basically, the response of gay left-wing idiots to a real hate crime — a mass murder committed by a Muslim Democrat — is to ban the weapons that could have stopped the attack because they’re mad at a liberal, pro-gay New Yorker who was elected president.

Makes total sense, doesn’t it?

The Left Doubles Down on Isolation from Mainstream America

They are going to reinforce the walls of that bubble with adamantium. An Asylum of Higher Education in the People’s Republic of Massachusetts has banned the American flag so it can concentrate on its core mission of indoctrinating students in homophilia and Islamophilia.

“We will not fly the U.S. flag or any other flags at Hampshire for the time being,” Lash said in a campus-wide email, according to Campus Reform.

While acknowledging that getting rid of the flag may be “especially painful” for military veterans and their family members, Lash said he hoped doing so would “enable us to instead focus our efforts on addressing racist, misogynistic, Islamophobic, anti-immigrant, anti-Semitic, and anti-LGBTQ rhetoric and behaviors.”

The cost of residing in this asylum is $62,000 a year. Forbes College ranking notes, “Hampshire College is known for its alternative curriculum and joie de vivre.”

I can think of a lot better ways to get “joie de vivre” out of the quarter-million dollars a degree from Hampshire College costs.

 

Teachers’ Union President Compares Trump to Hitler

The President of the Teacher’s Union pretty much just called Donald Trump a Nazi.

“After what happened in the 1930s and ’40s, we used to have a saying called ‘never again.’ Never again have some kind of Holocaust, never again. Frankly … that has to mean not never again not just for Jews, but never again for Muslims, never again for our Latino friends and neighbors, never again for our other vulnerable populations, including what are still an LGBTQ population. So when we think about what we’re walking into … Donald Trump is masterful at disruption and division. Disruption and division create discrimination and when we don’t stay together as a collective, as a coalition, then we are open to that kind of discrimination.” – Randi Weingarten, president of American Federation of Teachers.
