The age of Trump and Conservative inclusion.



I've been asked in the past how could I support conservative ideas and be gay.  No matter how many ways you explain to some people they simply don't grasp what possible reason could make you want to walk away from the Democrats because in their view it supports the idea that you are voting against your own interest.

So let's be frank.  On Twitter and Facebook I can't use the term fag without being censored and even banned from the platform.  You can't speak against so called 'protected' classes of people even if you happen to be one of those people calling out things you see wrong within your own community.

I'm 49 years old.  I've seen plenty in my life and I've had a lot of friends in the gay community over the years that were far older than myself.  The overwhelming majority of people that I've known in my life were liberals.  I had a friend that some people in the LGBT community might know very well in certain circles.  Professor Tom Chorlton.  He was a nice guy.  He was a good man.  He was a professor for the University of Columbia.  I spent many days and evenings in his company as well as was honored to meet and get to know friends of his which included people like Jim Bennett and Deacon Maccubbin.

While Deacon and Jim no longer associate with me, I still consider them dear friends that taught me a great deal when I was just in my 20's and struggling with my life and day to day.  They were outspoken and strong voices and I don't deny that a great many things they have done for the gay community are worthy of high praise and respect but let me be clear, they are not role models nor people I want to be like as an adult.  I've seen and been around enough that I lost my respect for them on morality because of things that they directly did over the years I knew them.  I respect the work they had done, not the men themselves.

My views changed over the decades of my life.  I watched something that caused a great deal of conflict in my life.  I watched as a community that was screaming out for attention lashed out in every possible way.  I watched as some things we wanted came to pass but the behavior and self destructive madness of anything goes anytime turned the LGBT community into something I couldn't reconcile with my values as a human being.

There are some things you just have to stop and look at then do some real soul searching about if you're going to grow up and become an adult at some point in your life.  A great many in the gay community that didn't have the chance to be what kids are today seem to act like spoiled children and are every bit as reckless.

It was bad enough that during the years that AIDS was center stage in the LGBT community that you had young gay men going to 'conversion parties' and engaged in the heavy usage of meth, cocaine, and other hard substances.  This behavior was encouraged and much older men were preying upon much younger boys.  Money, drugs, and sex was a lethal combination that was taking the lives of young people in the gay community and spreading a disease in the most brutal and twisted of ways.

I was at parties like that.  I saw things.  I was terrified.  I had no idea what the hell was going on.  I was young, I didn't understand the dangers of the world around me.  I was struggling as a young gay man in a world that didn't accept gay people, in the age of Matthew Shepard and real bullies in schools that make bullies of today seem laughable.

Liberals don't want to talk about the destructive behavior in the gay community.  They capitalize on the fear and support poor behavior like the acceptance of pedophiles and drugs in the LGBT community.  It's been going on for years.  I've been a victim of it, lived through it, and eventually when I grew up I understood what was truly wrong and how we were being used as a community for a political agenda.

Yes, I know about important issues that are part of the conservative movement today and I see the contrast between liberal politics and conservative values.  As a gay man I want to see a world where moral values in the gay community are as important as our rights.  I see protection of the Constitution and getting government out of our lives as a means to an end where we can find common ground with people that we disagree with on the right.  Such as Christians and others in the religious community.

I dislike the predatory nature of the Democratic party.  I find it disturbing to say the least.  We're all victim class voters.  Equality under the law is a Constitutional value.  Extra punishment because you attack a 'protected' voter class of the Democrats is not equality under the law.

So I'm not allowed to speak out about what is wrong in the gay community on most social media platforms.  The only way I can put the truth out there is to use my voice on this website and continue to talk with people and assert my beliefs because I think they are morally and legally the right course to strengthen our country and the gay community.

It's time for the LGBT community to stop being victims.  It's time for us to shine a light on the amazing people all over the world that are part of the conservative movement and want more for the right and good of the entire gay community.  To be able to speak to issues and not everything be taken as an attack on a protected class.  Where everything we say has to be politically correct or else we're punished for our speech.

In an age where Donald Trump is president, it takes strong voices that are willing to step up and say the unpopular things that people don't want to hear but need to hear.  People in the gay community that have long remained silent or have gone along with something for fear of being persecuted by others have got to stand up and fight back.

The best solution to unpopular speech and ideas are more ideas and the ability to freely speak more.

I'll always believe that..
