"I'm A Gay Activist: After Orlando, I Have Switched My Vote To Trump"

Tyler Durden's picture

Submitted by 'Anonymous' via PJMedia.com,

This is the saddest day of my life. I can't even wrap my mind around the horror of what happened last night in Orlando, where 50 joyful dancing queers were murdered by a religious extremist. I'm sad -- devastated, in my soul -- about that; but I'm also sad that the events of Orlando have shattered my political beliefs, as I can no longer swear allegiance to a peace-love-and-unicorns progressive philosophy that only helps to get my fellow queers killed.

Yes, there is a war between religious fundamentalism and the spirit of love and tolerance. But we progressives here in America still labor under the delusion that the religion we need to combat is Christianity. But that's a strawman opponent, and has been so for decades. Since the 1990s, Christian extremists have essentially lost all their power, and are now toothless nonplayers in the "culture wars." Meanwhile, Muslim extremists, with guns, murder us, and on the left our only response is to bleat about "Islamophobia" and jump through hoops trying to explain away the self-evident religious motivation for the killings.

Oh sure, all year I've been playing the "Bernie or Hillary?" game with all the other default-Democrats in my social and professional circles. But this is no longer some kind of game. Our lives are on the line. Although I voted for Hillary in the primary, I now cringe inwardly with shame and embarrassment at having done so, and in November I will vote for Trump.

Why? Yes, I know that Trump is an a**hole, Trump is a clown, Trump is a motormouth buffoon. You don't have to convince me of that. But he's also the only person saying anything about putting the brakes on Islamic extremism, and in light of what happened last night in Orlando, suddenly that is the only issue that really matters when it comes to the health, well-being and safety of the queer community.

As an aside, Trump has never said anything homophobic, and has always gotten along well with the gay community in New York, so there's that in his favor as well.

I also now realize, with brutal clarity, that in the progressive hierarchy of identity groups, Muslims are above gays. Every pundit and politician -- and that includes President Obama and Hillary Clinton and half the talking heads on TV -- who today have said "We don't know what the shooter's motivation could possibly be!" have revealed to me their true priorities: appeasing Muslims is more important than defending the lives of gay people. Every progressive who runs interference for Islamic murderers is complicit in those murders, and I can no longer be a part of that team.

I'm just sick of it. Sick of the hypocrisy. Sick of the pandering. Sick of the deception.

And you know what makes me angrier still? The fact that I have to hide my identity and remain anonymous in writing this essay. If I outed myself as a Trump supporter, I would be harassed and doxxed and shunned by everyone I know and by the Twitter lynch mobs which up until yesterday I myself led.

I am ashamed. I am angry. And I am sad. I don't want to vote for Trump, but I must. And if you care about the safety of the gay community in America, so must you.

All I can say is welcome home, brother. If you are gay and vote for Hillary, you are knowingly voting for your genocide.

Sorry but I've got no pity for those dead faggots... most of whom couldn't care less about my nuclear family. most of whom seek to disarm me as hoardes of degenerates inflitrate White nations. Good riddance.

Most of whom would have been happy to leave you the hell alone.

how do you get four faggots on a bar stool?

turn it upside down

Winston Churchill's picture

Queers.

They're not gay,they're not faggots(those are yorkshire meatballs), they're queer.

Stop playing the word games unless you want to prove you're gibbering idiots like the progressives.

Let them define the words and you are lost.

Obama and and his man-wife Michael must be somewhat conflicted themselves today.

Been tellin' my Progressive buds that if they get the Shira Law they're importing then they, the atheists and the gays are the first to be burnt.

Just wait until the Feminists learn what Shira law has for them.

Gaius Frakkin' Baltar's picture

If you mean by inserting their "values" into my culture. Do they give a fuck if my toddler son accidentally sees two faggots kiss one another? Fuck no, they laugh and call it education.

Are the poor faggots butt-hurt?

How much does Trump ay ZH?  Sick of all these pro-Trump propaganda pieces

You won't see much pro-Trump stuff on Washington Post if this is true.

 

Trump Campaign Revokes Press Credentials of Washington Post

“Based on the incredibly inaccurate coverage and reporting of the record setting Trump campaign, we are hereby revoking the press credentials of the phony and dishonest Washington Post,” Donald Trump says in post on verified Facebook page.

Well, Trump goes up another notch in my estimation. It's about time somebody fought back against the lying Marxist news media.

Won't make a difference to Mr Trump.

As a long time reader of the WaPo, I can assure you that you never would have seen much pro-Trump stuff in the WaPo regardless of whether Trump abandoned them, because the WaPo is strictly leftist and thus in the tank for HRC22.

My toddler son saw plenty of faggots and lezzies kiss each other.  What did he learn?  That his pals' parents loved each other, and his toddler pals lived in safe and happy homes.  Because, the fact is, that's all toddlers care about.  

He did ask me, when he was about 4, why some of his buddies had two moms, some two dads, some no mom or dad at all but Grandma and Grandpa, and why he himself had a mom and  a dad.  I thought about what he was really asking, as an intelligent 4-year-old, and told him it was because all it really takes to make a family is grown-ups who love kids and keep them safe.  Because, you know, that's all the kid was really asking.

No butt-hurt required.  You're not required to show your child gay porn flicks if they ask you why the two men are kissing.  You can say, "They must really like each other," and that will suffice.  And have the added virtue of being true.

Gaius Frakkin' Baltar's picture

Did you also tell him that it's not natural or normal? Because it isn't.

So when should I have the talk about fucking animals as being okay?

knukles's picture

If you can't talk about f'ing animals then how do you explain to an innocent kid to stay out of the ghetto?

DownWithYogaPants's picture

Being gay is a genetic proposition.  As long as they don't vote liberal to take away my rights I have nothing against them.  They do have a problem in this particular area of voting libtard.

 

Why are you all upset anyway? For the most part they do not reproduce except for making food-babies.   That makes them much the less of a problem than any of the other minorities which reproduce like flies and expect me to pay for their spawn.

MsCreant's picture

The animals can't consent. Two adults can. What they do with their private parts hurts no one and is none of my business.

 

If a hetero couple is getting too frisky out in public in front of the kids, that isn't okay either. The choice of partner is irrelevant. Too much PDA is inappropriate for either sexual orientation.

Miffed Microbiologist's picture

Wow, and I thought I was uncomfortable explaining why our rooster was riding all the hens.

Growing up is difficult and confusing enough today. Exposing them to so much sexually at such a young age just robs them of their childhood.

Sex is a regular, healthy and normal part of life.  Your kids should know it as a sign of love and appreciation.  Violence on the other hand, is wrong, unless it is in self defence.

MsCreant's picture

Hopefully swmnguy's friends were not being "sexual" in front of the kids. His straight friends should not do that either. I think he was describing various "family bonds" not sexual behavior.

crossroaddemon's picture

Oh, jeez... cus seeing a kiss is going to scar your son for life. Jesus Christ.

 

Who gives a shit who is sleeping with who? It's like the least important thing on the planet.

Gaius Frakkin' Baltar's picture

Not for life, just to the age of 4 or 5 when he can understand the difference. I know the faggots and faggot sympathizers like you are real concerned. Since when did ZH become so gay anyway?

greenskeeper carl's picture

whats your solution then, smart guy? Round 'em all up and shoot them? I don't really like my kids being exposed to it at a young age either, but unfortunately you are going to have ot figure out how to talk to them about this and a hell of a lot of other things that just weren't an issue even 20 years ago. Its a fact of life. Explainign the 'gay thing' to kids is going to go along with explaining to them to stay out of the ghetto, avoid certain groups of people, never trust a cop, etc.

 

 

Gaius Frakkin' Baltar's picture

You're right about that. We have a lot of explaining to do. Not least of which: Why we choose to do nothing why society degenerates into shit.

The question is why does love in any form anger you so much? I feel sorry for you honestly.

Gaius Frakkin' Baltar's picture

Don't, I have two amazing children and they will both grow up understanding that homosexuality is wrong along with many other things.

DaveA's picture

"love in any form" does not anger him, only love in faggot form.

When a man of my race kisses another man, or a 35-year-old "child-free" woman kisses her dog like it's a baby, they are accomplices to the extermination of my people.

"Sorry but I've got no pity for those dead faggots..."

As a Christian, I do not approve of their lifestyle, but these people did nothing to harm any of us and are Americans just the same.  That seems a pretty poor statement.

Gaius Frakkin' Baltar's picture

They're not my fellow Americans. I reckon the baby-killers are your "fellow Americans" too huh? I'm sure your decision not to take a hard stand on anything will put you in front of the line at the pearly gates.

swass's picture

The question really comes down to whether they did anything to harm you.  No, I don't want my kids to witness two gay people kissing, but I also have the right to be offended and they have the right to offend me.  It's America, after all.  As a society, we can discourage that type of social behavior, but the state of being gay (which does not bring harm to myself or my property) does not justify physical harm or death.

Gaius Frakkin' Baltar's picture

Right... that's all Christians do is discourage and yet the problems keep getting worse. The preachers have become like politicians. They make more money by solving nothing, so they don't.

swass's picture

I think our personally held beliefs are better served by directing our anger over the current state of affairs at the source of the problem: government.  Just because two gang-bangers decide to kill each other doesn't mean we should rejoice; we should rather identify the source of the fatherless black families and welfare culture that created the gang-bangers and their bad, violent attitudes.

BarkingCat's picture

They do harm kids. They push their agenda into public schools to brainwash little children into thinking that their deviant behavior is normal. 

If they kept it to themselves I would not care but too many are mentally deficient perverts that relish shocking others.

swass's picture

They are a very small percentage of the population.  It isn't the gays that are pushing their agenda into mainstream; it is liberals in the media and in general, as well as politicians.

BarkingCat's picture

They are not liberals.  No way in hell we should allow such a good work to be stolen by people who are anti liberty.

 

..and how many homosexuals do you think there are in the media?

swass's picture

Unfortunately, we now need to refer to those that love liberty as classical liberals; the word "gay" was hijacked too.  At this point, it's probably just better to say you're happy, rather than gay.

greenskeeper carl's picture

"They" as in the gays do not harm kids. As the above poster said, if you want to direct your anger at an entity enabling all this, direct it at the government. The gays aren't writing the textbooks, or demanding that your children attend compulsory govt education. As the guy above said, the government is the one brainwashing little children. Without the government doing this, they gays would have no ability to do so.
