Politics in America is often quite shallow and full of stereotypes. Conservatives are often portrayed as working class citizens sometimes bordering on redneck, while establishment Republicans are big business people who have little regard for the common citizen. Liberals are fun and loving people who are sexual deviants and flamboyantly obnoxious people.
In terms of the LGBT community, it is often seen as a leftwing movement and both sides of the spectrum are to blame. Largely due to social conservatives, the potential support of the LGBT community is turned away over religious stances and negative prejudice. Because of this, it is easy for liberals to take political ownership of the community.
Remember when Caitlyn Jenner, the former Bruce Jenner who became a transwoman, came out against Hillary Clinton while defiantly supporting Senator Ted Cruz for President? Liberals came unhinged and with a vengeance. All of a sudden the lines about not being a real woman were no longer social conservative lines, but now were ammunition for intolerant liberals. How could a genetic male possibly understand a woman’s struggles?
The liberal response essentially noted one can openly be a transsexual, but only if they are a transsexual liberal. Transsexual conservatives and libertarians are not a part of the call for tolerance.
Then enter Milo Yiannopoulos, a gay journalist and activist who has become a leading figure in the Alt-Right movement. Being openly gay, he would hypothetically attract the sympathy of the Left. The Left constantly speaks of gay rights and how everyone should be more tolerant of the homosexual lifestyle.
But instead, the liberal response to Yiannopoulos is with the very hatred they claim to oppose.
Like Republican President Donald Trump, Yiannopoulos himself has become a master troll of the political establishment. President Trump repeatedly would say things during his campaign that triggered meltdowns among liberals, often to a degree where his own campaign should’ve come with a “trigger warning” for fragile liberals.
Yiannopoulos, a gay male, was suspended from Twitter after criticizing radical Islam in the aftermath of the Pulse nightclub shooting. Twitter essentially endorsed the notion that innocent gun owners who were being targeted by political leftists are guilty, but we must protect radical Islam after an extremist shot up a gay nightclub.
More recently, hostile riots by radical progressive thugs shut down a speech at Berkeley by Yiannopoulos. The college canceled his speech after the protests erupted into violence against police officers and rioting that resulted in damaged property.
Once again, the Left exposed themselves to be hypocrites.
Liberals often speak of free speech and the right of everyone to have a voice, but when it comes to Milo Yiannopoulos, this does not apply. Liberals often speak of homosexual tolerance, but this apparently does not apply to Yiannopoulos. Liberals often speak against violence and aggression, but resort to these very tactics against Yiannopoulos.
Liberal stereotypes are being repeatedly shattered everyday as Yiannopoulos shows they’re not interested in homosexual tolerance, free speech, or ending violence. They merely want to maintain an echo chamber for their own shallow agenda.
