In a new article titled, “What To Do When Your Friend’s a Gay Republican,” OUT Magazine reveals just where it stands on the left's legendary tolerance and inclusiveness by advising its readers to dump their gay conservative friends, according to Breitbart.
“We drop friends all the time for a whole variety of reasons—they messed with our loves lives, they lied, they weren’t supportive—so why do some people think it’s such an outlandish idea to dump them for their political views?” wrote Michael Musto in his high-minded OUT column. “I think there’s a misguided sense that, ‘It’s a free country and people have the right to believe what they want. Why should I let their political opinions interfere with a long-running friendship?'”
Why indeed? But politics is the left's religion, and that's more important to them than long-running friendships.
“[T]here is no law that ‘free speech’ means you have to keep a friend who promotes the Republican agenda any more than you have to keep someone who calls you a cow,” Musto continued. “Everything in a friendship that might have seemed good suddenly goes sour when I learn that they advocate Trump and his hideousness, which involves attempting to diminish rights for women, LGBTQs, Muslims, immigrants, the arts, and the non-rich, not to mention all those treasonous-sounding doings with Russia.”
In addition to spewing such false Progressive talking points about President Trump, Musto also displays the left's typical inability to engage conservatives on the level playing field of reasoned debate, announcing in the article that he has taken to blocking any Twitter user who disagrees with him. He concludes by saying that he would treat a real-life friend the same way if he were to "trumpet in my face the alleged glories of the Republican party, I simply have to show them the hand and the door. Friendship over.”
“They are as over to me as a boyfriend who cheated with someone I was cheating with," he continued. "I have no use for them and would find it more than strained to attempt exchanging friendly banter with them, knowing full well that they’re basically self-loathing climbers who are furthering the mistreatment of mankind with their empty headed emissions.”
Breitbart.com notes that OUT Magazine has previously attacked LGBT conservatives and has been accused of firing former employee Chadwick Moore because of his conservatism. Moore told Breitbart.com that gay conservatives have become “less than merely second class citizens in the gay community. We are reviled, much like black conservatives and any other minority group that says ‘no’ to the Left’s victimhood politics."
Gay conservative provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos took that notion a step further, telling Breitbart.com,“Conservative-leaning gays have always been second-class citizens in the LGBT community, but now it’s closer to third-class.”
Conservative reality star and former Olympic athlete Caitlyn (nee Bruce) Jenner agrees, having said that it was harder to come out as a Republican than it was to come out transgender.
With friends like these, who needs enemies?
