‘New thinkpiece protocol’: Right-wing writer eviscerated for claiming ‘conservatives are more stigmatized than gays’

Published

on

A right-wing gay writer claimed that he’s more discriminated against as conservative than as a gay man in a Tuesday editorial — and immediately felt Twitter’s wrath.

“Everything I was told to fear about being openly gay has become a reality in being openly conservative,” pundit Chad Felix Greene wrote for the right-wing Federalist website.

Greene noted that after he came out, he used to fantasize about “breaking through the walls of prejudice and somehow speaking to the heart of someone who did not yet realize I was just a person like them.”

He then used the “born this way” argument about his sexuality to describe being conservative.

“Today I look out across the turbulent sea of political discourse and ask, ‘Why would anyone choose to be a conservative?'” Green wrote. “To be a conservative means to openly invite others’ hatred into your life and to lose your humanity in the eyes of strangers who view you exclusively through stereotypes and prejudices.”

Unsurprisingly, lots of folks on Twitter took issue with that argument.

“Remember in the 1980s and early 90s when thousands and thousands of conservatives were dying and pleading for help from a government that treated their lives as completely disposable?” producer and Sally Field progeny Sam Greisman wrote. “Good point, good point.”

“Y’all forever wanting to play the victim as you victimize & marginalize others,” Democratic gun control advocate Khary Penebaker tweeted.

Published

on

House Democrats would like to hold at least one impeachment hearing on findings from Robert Mueller's report, but must first sort out court challenges to witnesses and evidence from that investigation.

Roger Stone's trial, which ended in a guilty verdict on all seven counts, raised new questions about whether President Donald Trump perjured himself in written responses to the special counsel's questions, and Democrats may present that evidence and examine Mueller's findings on obstruction of justice, reported Politico.
