‘Gay Thought Police’ Like Soviet-Era Bullies

‘Gay Thought Police’ Like Soviet-Era Bullies, by Michael Lucas.

One of the core beliefs of the movement for LGBT equality has always been that anti-gay bullying, especially of young people, must end.

And yet, in recent days, thousands of online comments and threats from LGBT people have been directed against two young gay men who expressed their opinions about the current presidential race.

The blasphemy:

At a Donald Trump rally …[a] .. Wall Street Journal video reporter … interviewed a gay couple who are both supporters of the GOP candidate … 31-year-old Dewey Lainhart and his 22-year-old fiance, Cody Moore. When asked if they were comfortable being affectionate at the rally, Lainhart replied, “Yeah. Ain’t nobody saying nuthin’ about us” and “I have a lot of gay friends who support Trump.”

Lainhart said he works in the steel industry, and is “tired of the bullsh*t government. Time for a change. Trump’s the man for it.” Moore added he believes Trump “would bring more jobs to the country.”

That was essentially the entire substance of the interview.

The reaction:

Hundreds of thousands of online views have led to thousands of comments, most of them furious with Lainhart and Moore, who have been ridiculed as “hillbilly morons” and “rednecks.” …

[T]hey “have received death threats from gay people warning them not to leave their house or go to any gay clubs. One message to them, they say, told them to drink bleach.”

Bullies enforcing political correctness. Step out of ideological line and you will be punished. Hypocrites.
