Gay Pride 2017: Liberals and Exclusion

Americans have learned one important lesson from this past election: politics are personal. The division between red and blue America is growing deeper. As Democrats and Republicans in Congress become further divided on important issues such healthcare, the hostility is extending beyond Washington D.C. and into communities in our own backyards. One community in particular is seeing exclusion and division amongst the political left and right: the LGBTQ community. Pride month is in full swing, however, one group in particular will be excluded in the LGBTQ community from festivities this year: conservatives. LGBTQ Republicans find themselves in a particularly awkward situation. As Pride events begin around the world, cities in the U.S. are witnessing events that are supposed to promote acceptance and tolerance of one another, as hate filled weekends deposing our current administration. Make no mistake, you have the right to protest and speak out against the federal government. However, making those in the LGBTQ community feel unwelcome because of their political party affiliation and excluding them for supporting politicians with a (R) after their name, only makes you a hypocrite. I believe gay liberals have forgotten why it is pride even exist. It’s quite apparent that the Left is defining a new version of the LGBTQ community, and you can only be a part of that community if you are a Democrat or socialist Bernie Sanders supporter.

 The gay rights movement ended when Los Angeles Pride became political, and has arguably become an extension of the Democratic National Convention (kidding). The resist march in Pride L.A. shows how if you are a conservative in the gay community, you are clearly not welcome. This year, you’re only welcome at Pride if you are a Democrat and on this past election day, you exclaimed, “I’m with her”. How disappointing that this is what the left has done, making a weekend about acceptance into a political statement, opening one closet, only to make another for LGBTQ conservatives. The left needs to take a look in a look in the mirror and ask themselves, who really is the party of exclusion? However, it’s hard to be upset, the silly liberals love big government and think it’s the answer to every problem they encounter.

Democrat to Deplorable

My Journey To The GOP

I’ve been getting many of my friends asking me why I am now all of a sudden “right winged” in my political views. I find this question to be a little funny, considering the majority of the concerns are lack of understanding of why and how a gay male, future law student at Columbia, could possibly support Donald Trump. I want to make it clear, I do not full on support Donald Trump. I am critical of President Trump, just as everyone should be. We must hold our elected officials accountable and to the highest standard of review. I do just that. I am critical. I went from #DemocratToDeplorable after the election because I soon learned that I do not align with the leftist agenda or the Democratic party views on many key points.

  • I think illegal immigration is an issue that should be addressed fairly and appropriately.
  • I think Obamacare was a failure, it should be fixed. Socialism/Collectivism isn’t the solution.
  • I find it embarrassing that we put undocumented citizens over the care of homeless veterans on the streets.
  • I think some of the environmental regulations/laws are simply ridiculous, and a review of these laws need to be made.
  • Most of all, I believe America should be first, always.

All In all, my views have changed because I’ve learned the economics behind many of the Democratic party’s programs and agenda, and simply do not agree with them. I am apart of the #NewRight and if being a constitutionalist makes me a Republican, than so be it. But I will always put the country I am from and proud to be a citizen of, first and foremost.

I’ll cut the BS, I’m a Republican. I support Trump. #America
