Brandon Straka, founder of the #WalkAway movement, was sitting just two rows in front of me at President Trump’s speech Thursday night. I’m sickened to have to report that he was also among those attacked by leftist thugs when he and a friend returned to their hotel. He said it was almost identical to what Jussie Smollett reported, except this attack really happened.
Straka noted that he hadn't endured an anti-gay attack like that in 10 years, and worse, they couldn’t even fight back because the media would accuse them of being racists. He wrote, “At least back in the day when gay-bashing was common, the media didn’t blame the gay people.”
Sadly, that’s because the media, like much of the Democratic Party leadership, have thrown in their lot with a group of radical leftists who don’t care about gay rights, women’s rights, black rights or even human rights. The only right they care about is their own delusion that they have the right to exert power over everyone else. If you disagree or challenge them in any way, they will attack you with anything from vile racist, sexist or homophobic slurs and profanity to physical violence. And if you fight back, as Brandon says, you’re a “racist,” even if you’re black and the person you’re fighting is a white punk calling you the n-word.
I hate to see this for a number of reasons, but one of them is that I consider real racism to be a terrible sin that’s an insult to God, who created us all in His image. That’s why exploiting the condemnatory power of the word by falsely affixing to people who simply disagree with your politics is also a sin and an insult to God.
And if you’re surprised that a conservative Christian would be defending a gay man against homophobic attacks on him by alleged “social justice workers,” then you need to stop watching fake news sources.
