Liberals Are So Gay

The TL;DR version of this article is that “liberals” (in the Progressive-Left sense, not in the Classical Sense)  consider their progressivism to be a defining feature of their social identity.

This phenomenon is exacerbated by two related factors. First, liberals are generally dysfunctional, vice-ridden people who embrace what we call liberalism because its underlying relativism and nihilism help them justify their sins. (They become the arbiters of their own “values.” “Everything is gray, a matter of perspective. I have my own ‘truth.'”) Simultaneously, liberalism allows these virtue-bereft people to virtue-signal by paying homage to the day’s fashionable values. In other words, liberals are generally morally “unaccomplished” people who often have nothing to cling to but the illusion of intellectual, and often moral, superiority.

You know who else derives their identity from group affiliation and obsess over fitting in with their clique? Teenage girls and a whole lot of gay men.  We talk about gay people who let being ghey define everything about them; the clothes they wear, the neighborhoods they live in, the movies and TV they watch. “Liberals” are like that, too. The group defines their tastes and attitudes for them, and they accept it in exchange for membership in the group.

The Democrat Media Complex is very much aware not only that their followers treat their progressivism as a personal identity, but also that because they do, it effectively immunizes the party against the failures of its policies. The identification of Democrats with liberalism is so strong they will deny the failure rather than compromise their identity. (Consider the leftists claiming that Venezuela, Cuba, and Zimbabwe are not failures of socialism; they failed because their leaders weren’t pure enough. Consider the leftists who blame Chicago’s gun violence on Republicans in Indiana.)  It also is why they have constantly and childishly denigrate the right; both to maintain their fragile sense of superiority and to discourage their weak-minded followers from considering alternatives.

Part of the left’s psychological warfare is to ostracize and vilify women like Laura Ingraham, Sarah Huckabee, and Dana Loesch as well as gay men like Chad Felix Greene as an example to others who might step out of line. Likewise, “liberals” must constantly vilify all those who are not “of the body” in order to validate their membership in the “popular group.”

Hence anything that questions, criticizes, or presents an alternative to leftist policies is seen not as a different perspective, but as a personal attack. Declining to bake a wedding cake is thus an intolerable act of “violence” against an LGBT’s sense of self-esteem and must be punished severely.

We look at conservatism as a set of pragmatic policies that have been proven to work over time. It’s not our identity, it’s a set of things we believe. In that same vein, we don’t look at same-sex attraction as our sole defining social characteristic nor derive our identities from it. Left-wing gays do, and because they have not been reasoned into this belief, it is impossible to reason them out of it.

  1. One would think that liberals wouldn’t be spoiling their self-awareness with so much navel-gazing and anti individualism. The liberal Hive will always look too it’s Queen for guidance and disposition of personal identity.

  2. Here’s an interesting link about how colleges and universities are no longer places of independent thought.

  3. Most colleges and universities were always bastions of Liberal and Leftist thought, just with social media and cellphones more immediately-vicious. When I was in college in the late-70s you just couldn’t reach-out-and-touch-someone like you can today. All interactions were face-to-face and private. If your professor was a Commie fellow-traveler, who was there to tell other than the guys in class or the guys you ate lunch or dinner with.

    If you needed to reach someone (and you knew where they lived), you had to walk to his dorm and pin a note on his door (if you could get into the building), or go to his frat and leave a note in their dayroom, or send a postage-free CampusMail note-card to his campus mailbox at the Student Center …or if he was an upperclassman withe a declared-major to his Departmental mailbox. (At-least we could since we had a small Art and Architecture department with a cubby-hole rack for on-campus mail-drops.)

    It might take a few days to hear-back.

    There were no phones in the dorm-rooms, nor in most of the dorm hallways as-if anyone would pick-up and take a message (/sarcasm).

    For most people you just waited until the next class, or a random chance meeting in a hallway or campus pathway.

    That’s a really harsh parallel to draw… re: gay men.

    /tongue-in-cheek

    More seriously, I have no doubts I must have been in the voisinage of gay men even more often I eventually realized or was told so — maybe that’s because I generally couldn’t care less except when I notice the left pandering to their n-th deception victim group / minority, to push further their anti-human nature agenda.

    Good post anyway — that pretty much sums it up, AFAICT.

  5. Jesus. How I hate what the left does against brains.

    Maybe even more than my own dad would.

    Yeah, that’s the crux of the matter.

    Your average leftist is so…

    insecure &/or mediocre &/or anxious &/or envious &/or resentful &/or self-delusional… as a person

    that they have (almost) no other choice than to remove their own, true, honest, unafraid individuality and temperament from the market of ideas that is the natural society —

    They have to hide it, to make it shut up, to lock it up in their secret un -PC closet.

    Hence how it comes the rest of their life and individuality is sacrificed to the selfish, ungrateful mob of the “groups” they have elected to be their shelter from individual responsibility.

  7. There are as many normal people minds as there are individuals who can assume, assert, and introspect by and for themselves.

    There are as many different leftist minds as, at any given point in time, can be accounted for the trendiest anti-human verbiage coming out of the mouths of a small bunch of resentful and envious career intellectuals who, so disappointed by their the limits of their human condition in general, and mediocre talents in particular, they eventually come to wish and work for one thing and one thing only — putting themselves above mankind using the best tool within reach at that, since the original sin — The Lie.

    The last 200+ years of History are quite eloquent in that respect, to anyone who bothered opening if only a handful of books, specialized or not, with already way too many witness accounts.

  8. Whoever this “V the K is…Wow!! I highly Admire and sincerely applaud, YOU!! Most Excellent! Well Done, Bravo!!
    I also am a gay-Christian Conservative and I would be most honored to have you as a friend. You are…Spot On in this commentary!! Good for You and again, most excellent!! I no longer have ANY gay friends left in this world because of everything you described about them is so very, sadly, accurate. Yes, the fact that -all- my one time gay friends have terminated their friendship with me because I am the enemy Conservative is on one level, sad. On another, Im ok with this, glad to be freed from such idiot and individuals who have no ability for critical thinking. If this “V the K” is on Facebook, please consider friending me. I mean this only in a most honorable way without any hidden agendas. Keep Going “V the K” and God Bless YOU!!

  9. I think the writer of the article has more difficulty thinking of gay American citizens outside of his preconceived “little box” that lumps us into that imaginary little box. As such, the author seems to have much more difficulity seeing gays as humans. Much more than American citizens who happen to be gay have difficulty to think outside of his preconceived”little box” (i.e., we no less think for themselves than straights do).

    Case in point: would the author even consider writing an article about how straights need to think outside a preconceived little box (i.e., every heterosexual American city dweller, country dweller, senior citizen, college student, blue-collar worker, scientist, homemaker)? Doubtful — otherwise he would have spent his energy on wtiting about that, since they apear to be the majprity, and thus a potentially bigger issue to concern himself with.

    Seems more of a typical case of some tyrant who seeing gays as a ‘societal boogeyman’ warranting his need to warn his audience of our ‘dangerous disfunction’ (an age-old fantasy he so obviously sees in his minds eye — day and night, no doubt).

    Physician, heal thyself! Author, broaden your life experiences before you write articles that present your narrow preconceptions as an accurate worldview…or, at least write about the beam lodged in the fringe-straight community’s eye before you get all hot and bothered about the splinter in the fringe-gay community’s.

    This comment was written my a morally traditional, politically independent homosexual man who knows countless, equally independent-minded, non-lemming homosexual men and women. Surprise, surprise … there is as much diversity among homosexuals as there is among heterosexuals. Wow, that must mean we’re human too! Shocking as that may be for the minds of narrow-agenda perspective types to comprehend.

    Stop being a pawn of the intollerant, liberal medua and politicuans who falsely hitch their self-serving wagons to any ‘group’ they believe will advance their careers. Just because the TV and newspapers you apparently read as ypur ‘sources’ for your articles are loud mouths, with equally loud fringe followers, they do NOT speak for or represent the emotionally stable majoroties (be they homosexual or heterosexual. Do not assume we don’t exist just because we’re not emotionally irrational, thus we tend to be less loud (dare I say the ‘silent majority’), busy with our lives instead of worshiping at the feet of extreme politicians. That’s the lie your opposition plays; quit playing into it!
