“Evidently the new progressive virtue signal is grousing about those who are grousing about rioters breaking windows and pulling people from cars for their overdue beatings.
Because white privilege. Seriously. Though it’s phrased as “the System works for you, so you can’t judge!”
Except that I can. To wit: If you’re mobbing around vandalizing and looting you’re a vandal and a thief. And if you’re a white, bespeckled progressive apologist for such behavior, you’re a condescending asshole who thinks it *progress* to treat entire groups of autonomous humans granted the blessing of free will as vessels for some ridiculous materialist historicism.
These people aren’t pets, and luxuriating over your own white guilt isn’t noble. In fact, it’s self-serving, arrogant, and ostentatious.
You sympathy is rote. It’s canned. It’s abstract and fundamentally dishonest. Because were it not, you’d be celebrating those who use their free will and personal integrity to turn away from the wilding mobs, not giving faux-sociological cover to those who join them.
You’re social Calvinists. To you, grace is pre-ordained — only instead of God granting it, it’s skin color or location that decides it. Which only cheapens the accomplishments of those who work hard to climb out of poverty or rise above racialism. It’s ugly fatalism disguised as intellectualism.
But hey. Clap each other on the back and pretend you’re making a difference as entire neighborhoods burn. Then retire to your book clubs and your lily white coterie.
I’ll send you a cookie.”
The LGBT Left is trying to bully JK Rowling into making another character gay because Dumbledore wasn’t enough (it’s never enough with the social justice mob, Harry and Ron could become transvestite hairdressers and it wouldn’t be enough).
The LGBTQ department of the Cult of Social Justice is going after author JK Rowling – who (among other things) has been an outspoken advocate for LGBTQ rights – because she won’t “confirm” that Harry Potter’s godfather, Sirius Black, is gay (which he’s not and never has been). And she’s not budging, no matter how much the smutty fan fiction writers beg her to –
The idea of an author having control over her work is alien to the left. All things are common property of the mob, and if the mob dictates that Sirius Black shall be gay and Captain America shall have a boyfriend, and Captain Kirk shall be transgendered, and Jay Gatsby shall be a Black Muslim Lesbian, then all this shall be done.
Again, rather than create their own characters, their own heroes, the social left cannot think beyond hijacking someone else’s creation and forcing it onto their own version of Procrustes Iron Bed. Likewise, they couldn’t build their own scouting organization, so they bullied the Boy Scouts of America into becoming a Social Justice outfit.
One wonders if a time will come when not making a character gay or whatever because the mob demands it will become a hate crime.
In Death and Taxes, Jamie Peck said of my conservative beliefs, “It’s easy for any progressive-minded person to feel sad that someone so beautiful could harbor such rotten ideology.” While I appreciate the compliment about my appearance, I could not help but feel disturbed at the notion that my looks, much less my sexuality, should determine my political views. I cannot help but think of another word that begins with B that connotes the intolerance of the opinions of others. The view that my sexuality should determine my beliefs was shared by Huffington Post Queer Voices editor JamesMichael Nichols. He went so far as to post a call to action, condemning any person or publication sharing or writing about my last photo series, for no reason other than my political beliefs. The hypocrisy of someone who is supposed to be representing “queer voices” working to silence a queer voice seems entirely lost on this editor.
Bill Maher suggested on his cable TV show that perhaps I and the other organizers of the LGBTrump event were “confused” and needed “gay conversion therapy.” Fascinating that these days, a straight white comedian has the moral authority — not to mention the internal experiences — to tell myself and others how to be “correctly” gay.
He goes on to counter the myths Old Gay Leftists tell themselves about those who are off-the plantation:
- “We’re Conservatives Because Our Parents Were.” – Wrong, his parents were ultra-libs.
- “Conservatives Are Hateful Bigots” – As with every other gay conservative, he has learned that his gayness is no big deal to conservatives, but his conservatism is hated by gays. “One shining example of liberal tolerance recently declared that I was “an absolute disgrace and traitor to the LGBT community.” Others on the left have gone so far as to send me death threats — fortunately, they do not believe in gun ownership, so I don’t feel that threatened.”
- Gay Conservatives Can’t Be Fun – That’s what bitter old queens tell the drones to keep them from escaping the collective.
- There are Very Few Gay Conservatives — “The stereotype that gays are met with aversion by conservatives is not only untrue, it’s harmful.” Harmful? No, but convenient to the gays in the Plantation House who don’t want the field hands to get a taste of freedom.
The comments in the article validate the author’s point about the intolerance of gay leftists and the way they bitterly cling to stereotypes, myths, and narratives.
According to Microsoft Word, Trump’s acceptance speech was delivered at the level of comprehension of a high-school freshling.
And this is why I call them the MFM.
Addendum. As has been noted, Democrat speeches that characterize America as a racist society, that declare that racist cops are shooting innocent black schoolboys for no reason other than racism, that there is a ‘War on Women,’ or a ‘War on LGBT,’ or a ‘War on immgirants’ are never characterized by the media as “dark.”
The Democrats deploy this rhetoric as an open-faced pitch to low-information voters. Trump is doing the same.
It occurred to me (and it didn’t take much time googling to convince myself) that the thought had come up in 2000.
Dare I dream?
(Naturally, yes, this is a quick flippant thought after an afternoon at the marina having a few rum drinks… But how, otherwise, could things be worse, amirite?)

So, apparently somebody made this. We’re supposed to ignore the fact that this Muslim Democrat cheered for the 9-11-2001 attacks, has a long history of Islamist behavior that includes threatening to murder fellow students because a slice of bacon touched his hamburger, a guy who posted on Facebook “The real Muslims will never accept the filthy ways of the West” and… Oh, yeah, his father is an Islamist that supports the Taliban... and pretend it was all about Teh Ghey. Because ‘The Narrative.’
Omar Mateen was not a closeted gay dude who went to pulse to work out his issues by committing mass murder. The overwhelming evidence is that he was a life-long jihadist who… by the way… called 911 to pledge his loyalty to [omitted] during his mass murder.
The left… and especially the dim-witted gay left… will grasp at any straw to avoid discussing how Obama’s inept and crippled-by-political-correctness FBI let this guy go on three separate occasions.
“[The attack stemmed from] a particular type of culture that is being brought up right now by, for example, the most prominent and visible, Donald Trump supporters,”
“Islam is a religion of peace, even though there is a lot of extremism, there have been no high examples so far in the United States of America that show straight-up LGBT hate, as far as Islam goes.”
I guess you can’t blame them for regurgitating the talking points their Democrat masters feed them.
Actually, yes you can. These people are the stupidest people in all of history.
Once again, the left equates an Islamist murdering four dozen people to Christians who don’t want to bake cakes for gay weddings.
I mean, that has to be the moral equivalence she is making, right? Because actual incidents of real violence perpetrated by observant Christians against homosexuals simply do not happen. Has any Christian, anywhere, ever spotted two dudes making a PDA in Miami and said to himself, “I better drive to Orlando and kill every gay I can find?” Not even the Westboro Baptists advocate violence against gays.
If someone is aware of someone shooting up a gay disco while shouting “Jesus Loves You,” then by all means, correct my assumption.
Update: Oh, Good Lord. She Kept Digging.
Always fascinating to watch conservatives who won't support basic non-discrimination laws bash Islamic fundamentalists for being anti-gay.

Not wanting trannies in my bathroom is the same is murdering a disco full of gay people. Only on the Democrat Left.
This is a picture of my temporary writing nook while we get the church/house organized and redone to something more to our tastes. Pretty cool, huh?
I got nothing else.
Probably because left-wingers already have a decisive inclination toward mental illness (and irrational paranoia that the Christian Theocracy is out to get them), they don’t seem to be handling the prospect of a Donald Trump candidacy very well.
If there is an unofficial capital of psychotherapy, it’s New York’s Upper West Side, where it’s easier to find a therapist than a parking space.
Judith Schweiger Levy, a psychologist in the neighborhood, has noticed a recent uptick in Trump references among her patients, including a middle-aged businesswoman who blurted out this week that her sister is supporting the billionaire.
“She was so upset and worried that she could have a sister — someone so close to her — who would have zero problem with Trump,” Levy said. “Another patient — also a woman — all she could talk about was Trump and how he’s crazy and frightening.”
Ruminating on Trump’s effect, Levy said, “Part of the reason he makes people so anxious is that he has no anxiety himself. It’s frightening. I’m starting to feel anxious just talking about him.”
When Conservatives consider the prospect of a Hillary presidency, many will prepare for more repressive gun laws by buying guns and stocking up on ammunition before the State makes it harder. And we make plans to dig in with our families and friends and just ride out the next four years of corruption and batscat crazy radical leftism, just as we’ve ridden out the last eight.
We don’t go whining to psychotherapists.
I am also thinking of all the left-wingers vowing to leave the country is Trump is elected, a list that so far includes Al Sharpton, Raven Symone, Miley Cyrus, Cher, Jon Stewart, Rosie O’Donnell and a whole bunch of dotty leftists who say they will but really won’t when they find out their EBT cards don’t work in Canada. And why do they always swear they’re fleeing to Canada? Why not Mexico? Isn’t that kinda racist?
The bizarre Queers for Palestine and their deranged sisters at Code Pink will not be able to make sense of this: A gay Iranian poet is leaving the Islamic Republic of Iran (a country governed entirely by clerics of the Religion of Peace) and is seeking to live in the Zionist Entity (the source of all evil and oppression).
Three months ago Israel granted a temporary visa to Iranian poet Payam Feilli. It was then that Feilli’s personal hell came to an end. After decades of persecution, the poet finally made it to only place he could ever imagine living outside of his native Iran.
Feilli, who is openly gay, fled to Turkey in 2014 after getting blacklisted and detained by Iran’s morality militia. Today Feilli is safely ensconced in the Israeli metropolis of Tel Aviv where he can publish his writings without the threat of censorship or intimidation.
In 2011, he was arrested the first of three times. The first two he was detained by plainclothes agents for nearly a month, and the third lasted for 44 days. That last began in February 2014: He was at home alone when three bearded men forced their way into his house, wrapped him in tape, blindfolded him, and brought him to a garden where he was kept in a shipping container.
In fairness, the oppression he faced in Iran pales next to the trauma faced by gay special snowflakes when Milo Yiannopoulos criticizes feminism.
Apparently, Ted Cruz’s comment about “New York Values” has sent New Yorkers into full-on pearl-clutching, fainting-couch hysteria.
- Larry Kudlow: “Mr. Cruz is disqualified for being president. Disqualified. Disqualified. Hang it up!”
- Bill de Blasio: ““I am disgusted at the insult that Ted Cruz threw at this city and its people.”
- Tucker Carlson’s Daily Caller whines petulantly: “There’s plenty of other ways to skewer liberal elites without antagonizing an entire region and an entire demographic.”
- Bill Kristol’s Weekly Standard called it, “a clumsy attempt at dog-whistle politics.”
- Governor Andrew Cuomo — who famously stated that pro-life, pro-2nd Amendment conservatives were not welcome in his state — also pitched a snit: “Not only is what he said anti-New York. It’s anti-American.”
- ABC News went out and found a clutch of New Yorkers who were traumatized by Ted Cruz’s remarks. “It’s insulting for anyone to make a derogatory comment about New York values. I think we pride ourselves on being a place of diversity and equality.”
- New York Daily News: Drop Dead Ted!
- Donald Trump’s Twitter has gone to DefCon1 on Cruz. Mostly invoking 9/11, which is pretty tawdry, even for Trump.
Google news lists over 9,000 articles about Ted Cruz’s “New York Values” remark. Saturday Night Live (a late-night comedy show on NBC for any readers born after 1985) devoted a sketch to it.
And all along we were supposed to believe you guys were tough?
First of all, people who elected Bill de Blasio, Anthony Weiner, Chuck Schmer, Andrew Cuomo, Hillary Clinton, and Michael Bloomberg to office have no reason to complain when someone says their values are way more to the left than those of most Americans.
New Yorkers actually banned guns and big sodas… tell us again how mainstream they are compared with the rest of America?
I guess New Yorkers just aren’t emotionally equipped to handle the disdain they constantly dish out toward “Flyover Country.”
Christmas is another occasion to remind ourselves, Progressive Leftists are miserable bastards and they want you to be miserable, too.
As for me, I will be happy to spend Christmas with that family that some deranged commenters think loathe and hate me. I hope the GayPatriot roundtable will also be spending Christmas with the families that leftists think hate and despise them as well.
