NY Times Warns LGBT to Stay on the Plantation

A feminist GLAAD operative writing in the New York Times says LGBT people who vote Republicans are traitors to their victim group.

L.G.B.T. conservatives argue that they are not “one-issue voters,” that while the rights of queer Americans are important, they are not the only factor. There are a lot of issues that constitute political identity, and as it turns out, some voters feel that their own rights are not the most urgent.

i.e. “What’s wrong with these idiots that they think economic growth, fiscal responsibility, and national security are more important than forcing Christian businesses to bake cakes for gay weddings and letting trannies use the other sex’s bathroom.”

As I listened, I wondered whether L.G.B.T. rights really ought not to be the most conservative of causes. Above all else we want to be left alone, without interference, to live our lives with truth and grace. What could be more conservative than that?

And yet the modern Republican Party seems to have no problem interfering with people’s privacy when it comes to sexuality and gender identity. From abortion rights to opposition to marriage equality, the Republicans have advocated more government intrusion into private lives, not less.

Except that Government control of “marriage equality” is, by definition, intrusion into private lives.

Also, the Democrats want to the Government to control the employment decisions of small businesses and who they have to serve; what kind of car you’re allowed to drive; what kind of health insurance you must have or face fines; where your kids must go to school and what indoctrination they must receive; who is allowed to speak on college campuses; who you’re allowed to rent that spare room in your house to, if at all; the ethnic composition of your neighborhood; who can be denied their due process rights (innocent college men accused of rape); what political groups you are allowed to donate money to; and they would completely deny you the right to own a  firearm for self-defense.

And they are baffled why these freedoms are more important to some of us than pieces of paper, tranny bathrooms, or forcing people to bake wedding cakes.

  1. Again, basic definitions of intrusion & government control elude Leftists. They don’t get it. By immersing themselves in their unicorns & rainbows, following “fair share” arguments & complaining that existing protections for minorities aren’t enough; they misunderstand almost everything & they base their points of view & arguments from this perspective of ignorance.

    It galls the liberal single issue voting Alphabet Gays, their feminist defenders & old school out of touch elderly Gay Community founders that Conservatives exist who happen to be gay. They wish to bully Conservative Gays because that works with gays on the Left. Except that there’s no vehicle for dictating to gays on the Right, unless it’s the Log Cabin gays, but they’re always deciding what to do, so their consistent confusion acts like a force shield against all anti-matter attempts to breach. Gays up & down on the Right’s spectrum really aren’t lemmings that group themselves into a sexual orientation voting block. They’re half the population of all gays, if not more, & are they part of the mainstream right, understanding that the main reason why Alphabet Gays huddle, equality & law, are long since dead issues.

    If Leftists are looking to bully gays on the right, you know they’re desperate. It’s not a pretty picture on the Left. I’m still predicting implosion & dissolution. They can’t control their Resistance Millennials. So, FemiNazis to the rescue! hahaha

  2. @Hanover – I believe you are quite correct. Leftist gays need to control, and they do sense that many are moving away from their package of leftist politics. They have become an ever growing movement of demands – including shaming. Most people actually want to live free lives.

  3. Interesting. The NYT apparently has eliminated comments on their Opinion pieces (or decided to disable them for this particular piece). One doesn’t even need to read the column to theorize where the author (Barnard College English prof) falls on the political spectrum. One of her other recent opinion pieces for the Times is entitled “Me and Prof. Edward Albee”, and I’m pretty sure it’s not a critical missive. The subject of which invented the term “monkeywrenching” and effectively created modern-day eco-terrorism. It might as well be an ode to firebombing entitled “Me and Prof. Bill Ayers”.

  4. GLAAD, like many identity-political groups, has to maintain siege conditions in order to survive – kind of like NAACP or the $outhern Policy Law Center. (There are a few right-wing outfits that do the same thing – it’s a bipartisan thing.)

    These groups once had a real purpose and, once in a while, even made useful and substantive contributions to justice.

    When real injustice starts getting hard to find, it has to be created from thin air to keep the money coming in.

  5. Black groups have been saying similar things for years; they even go so far as to say that someone isn’t really Black unless they are liberal. I’m surprised these groups have taken so long to take up the argument!

  6. i.m not gay but I have wondered if what hanover said is true since coming to this site. until I started visiting the gay patriot I never knew there were gays with your opinions. I have always wondered if you were just a small group of outliers in the general gay community or if you made up a larger group within the gay community. if so you are a well kept secret, you views are never mentioned in the democrat party-media complex

  7. Both my husband and myself have been off the gay “plantation” for as long as we have been out. It sickens me the way that gay conservatives have been and are treated, often as if we are either insane or card carrying members of the Nazi Party. Neither one of us care whether you want to make a cake for us or for that matter do business with us in any way. For the most part, we have far more in common with our straight conservative friends and neighbors.

  8. salg:

    We are not mentioned by Democrats because we are traitors that must be destroyed. Everyone must think like a liberal Democrat if they are part of a so called victimized group. It is like 1984 all over again by Orwell.

  9. @ Salg: Most homocons either don’t advertise their preference in partners, their political leanings, or both. To be sure, there aren’t many of us- but then again, there aren’t a huge number of homosexuals anyway. But if some of the articles published in the past few weeks are anything to go by, some members of the Gay Left are slowly realizing that the modern Democrats are less interested in being defenders and advocates, and more interested in being overseers on the minority group plantation.

    Come to think of it, this article comes off as subtly homophobic, since it seems to think that homosexuals can be politically placated with offers of a scrap of paper and consequence-free sex. As if the Democrats can take everything else away, but as long as we have those things, we’re happy.

  10. A golden oldie from the Cultural Revolution, the Struggle Session, seems down-right nostalgic compared to the illiberal coastal elites’ current bloodlust for G/L apostasy.

  11. Another dude who was the recipient of locker room swirlies and is now one of the Podesta Boys thinks he’s morally superior because he holds the correct political point of view:

  12. I’ve always been offended by the notion that one isn’t “authentically gay” unless one holds certain political views. It’s downright asinine if you ask me. By the way, in your post, did you mean to say “writhing”, or was that a misspelling? Either way, it was pretty funny as well as scathingly accurate!
