Remember — saying things like that is not considered ‘bullying’ because it’s coming from someone on the left targeting the right.
You’d think that one day, someone on the left would wake up and realize, ‘Oh, crap! We’ve been totally hypocritical and are the biggest bullies out there!‘
So far, that hasn’t yet happened.
ClashDaily reported on the article written by Chad Felix Greene, a gay conservative man, about the backlash he has faced for being ‘different’. He wasn’t being marginalized and bullied for being gay, but rather, for being conservative.
Check out our ClashDaily article here:
The article by Greene, ‘The Stigma Against My Conservative Politics Is Worse Than The Stigma Of Being Gay‘ was published on Tuesday and hit a real nerve with Deadspin’s sports writer, so she penned a piece that responded to the premise.
Now, in these new-fangled times where we have to rank people in order of their oppression based on their identity groups because of the craptastic ideology of ‘intersectionalism’, a white, transgender female (or genderqueer, Theisen used both in the article) sports writer is telling a gay, white, red-headed Jewish man to STFU because of his politics.
Where do you even begin with that? Does being a trans-woman trump being gay? Are Theisen’s remarks anti-Semitic because he’s Jewish? That was the accusation from the left of any critique of George Soros’s politics even though he isn’t a practicing Jew like Greene is. They did the same with Obama, if you dared oppose his policies, it wasn’t because of ‘political differences’, it’s because we’re all racist. What are the rules? How do you rank these different attributes of a person? I don’t know — that’s why I think identity politics is stupid and you should treat people as individuals. It’s an old-fashioned concept, I know. It was popular in the 1770s and had a resurgence in the mid-twentieth century, but the words of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. have largely been abandoned by the left.
stop listening to these guys! https://t.co/YNFxZo9MwZ

Theisen then uses ridiculous caricatures of right-wing ideology to attack the conservative worldview. For example, she writes that rightwingers ‘advocate using tear gas against people in need‘ which reveals her own bias on the migrant caravan storming the border. She’s not a fan of conservative politics — that’s fine. I’m not a fan of leftism, and neither is Chad Felix Greene. However, the difference is that I think that Theisen has a right to hold her opinion, even if I think that it’s wrong. She disagrees — conservatives should be shunned because they are ‘other’.
What I’m saying is, conservative politics should have more of a stigma than being queer, but apparently, my saying so hurts Greene’s feelings…
Funny how those that want everyone to ‘speak their truth’ demand that conservatives shut up, sit in the corner and get reprogrammed to thinking the ‘correct’ way.
…Putting aside the obvious irony of Greene using a decently prominent platform to complain about his political marginalization in a country where a majority of the government is conservative, this is insufferable. It’s a cynical guy perverting an extremely valid “I shouldn’t have to justify my love to the world” take and twisting it into “I don’t like when people argue with me on the internet because I sympathize with a very successful accused sexual predator.”
That last bit is about sympathizing with an ‘accused sexual predator’ has to do with this tweet:

But, we live in two different worlds where leftists ‘Believe all women’ and many on the right believe that Professor Christine Blasey Ford likely committed perjury with help from the ‘Deep State’ in order to prevent the balance of power from tipping on the Supreme Court –the legislative branch of the Democrat Party.
Back to Theisen’s article:
Normally, The Federalist farting out some jaw-droppingly stupid false equivalence is just another weekday, but conservative gays using their sexuality as a means to defend their abhorrent views have become more and more common as queers win more widespread acceptance. (Some possibly relevant personal background: I identified as a gay male during my teen years, but now I’m probably more like trans female or genderqueer or something more fun like that.) Opportunities that would have been previously unavailable for out gays in fields like business or politics are opening up like never before, giving LGBT people newfound power to create change within the systems that previously oppressed them. But wealthy and mostly white gay men have all too often been afforded the choice not just to shed the “oppressed” label, but to become oppressors themselves. Their sexuality, then, becomes a tool used to help uphold the anti-feminist, white supremacist, wealth-favoring status quo, and they need to fucking stop. (Emphasis added)
Theisen then writes about other ‘right-wing fags’ like Milo Yiannopoulos, Gay Pat from Barstool Sports, PayPal co-founder, Peter Thiel, and a handful of conservative journalists criticizing both their views and their prominence.
The lack of self-awareness is utterly shocking.
Theisen thinks it’s perfectly fine to marginalize people because of their political ideology. I guess that Theisen didn’t read that article in Scientific American that suggests that our political leanings have a large genetic component.
So, yes, honey, I actually was born this way.
With one click on that ‘Publish’ button, Thiesen proved Chad Felix Greene’s point perfectly.
What has been demonstrated by all this is the limited range of perception validated by a lack of empathy from the Left.
'Don't support awful, bigoted people harming minorities and spreading hate and maybe people will like you!'
They cannot conceive of their own prejudices.

They are unmoved by our concerns surrounding bullying, discrimination and bigotry because they deeply believe we deserve it.

Other gay conservatives on Twitter have reacted to Theisen’s article, including those that were named in it.
