Yesterday was another terrible Lupus day for me. It’s not a lot of fun when it rears its ugly head and terrorizes my body.
And while it gets in the way of me sitting in my office and working, it does free me up to surf the Internet and see what everybody else is up to.
Yesterday afternoon Big Fur Hat posted a poll over at iOTWReport.com asking one simple question: Can you be gay and conservative?
I didn’t even have to think about it. I clicked “YES.”
As of this morning, the vote is 90 Yes and 11 No.
If a Leftist website had conducted that poll, I think nearly 100% of the respondents would have answered “No” – you can’t be gay and conservative. Not because they wouldn’t think it’s possible, but because they wouldn’t allow it.
In the accompanying comment post, I wrote this:
“I’d rather have one Milo than a hundred Erick Ericksons on my side.”
If I wanted to be the type of person who thinks “you can’t play in my sandbox unless you are exactly like me,” I would have stayed a Liberal.
Who is doing more to bring young people to conservatism?
Bill Kristol or Milo Yiannopoulos?
If you are a regular reader of PatriotRetort.com, you know I have no issue with gay people.
I really don’t care what you do in the privacy of your bedroom. It’s none of my business.
My issue is with the Gay Mafia who seek to impose their will on the rest of Americans. Who insist that we reject our own liberties and bend to their demands.
But there’s a huge difference between a gay American and the Leftist Gay Mafia.
And I judge people by the content of their character.
I don’t love Milo Yiannopoulos because he’s gay; I love him because he fearlessly stands up for Freedom.
His being gay matters to me about as much as a June bug in July.
See, I believe in the Big Tent.
No, not in the way most Establishment Republicans view it.
When Establishment Republicans talk about a Big Tent, they mean it in the sense that we have to reject our principles in order to pander to different identity groups.
Whereas I reject the very notion of identity groups. Identity Groups are flat-out un-American. This push to define us by our “otherness” flies in the face of what this country is about.
I believe our principles are what makes us a Big Tent.
Liberty and Freedom are colorblind.
Individual sovereignty knows no sexual orientation.
The Rights of Man do not discriminate against any American.
Diversity isn’t our strength. Our strength comes from what we share – a love of freedom and individual liberty.
A love for America.
And that love for this nation is shared by people who are like me and people who are nothing like me.
Joy Villa is nothing like me. She’s a vegan. I’m a steak lover. She’s young. Me? Not so much. She can pull off crazy dresses and I wear jeans and sweatshirts. Her skin is brown where mine is fish-belly white (unless Lupus turns me yellow).
But we share a love of America and that is what binds us together.
Milo is a campy, outrageous faggot. I’m a subdued, Christian woman. His humor is bold and over-the-top. Where mine is more of a droll, sarcastic wit. He’s worn more dresses in the last year than I have in the last decade.
But we both love this country immeasurably. We both fight to preserve freedom and liberty. And that’s what unites us.
The Big Tent is America – a nation founded on Liberty and the rights of the Individual.
If you stand with this nation, if you defend the principles of this nation’s founding, your color, your gender, your sexual orientation are irrelevant to me.
Your love of America is all that matters.
And I am proud to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with everyone who loves this nation and fights for Freedom.
