ELDER PATRIOT – Chadwick Moore is a 33-year-old journalist who also happens to be gay. “Out” since he was 15, he left his Mid-western roots to find happiness and acceptance among New York’s Williamsburg openly gay community.
There he enjoyed the camaraderie of his neighbors, many friendships in the gay bars that he frequented, and an active social life. At least he did until he penned a profile of Milo Yiannopoulos. Moore deliberately set out to be objective about Milo who he admitted he “thought he was a nasty attention-whore” prior to doing the interview.
Despite Moore’s efforts – “I wanted to do a neutral piece on him that simply put the facts out there” – his life became a living hell immediately after it was posted on-line.
Moore recounts that the gay community that had previously embraced him now openly showed hostility to him:
“Most disconcertingly, it wasn’t just strangers voicing radical discontent. Personal friends of mine — men in their 60s who had been my longtime mentors — were coming at me. They wrote on Facebook that the story was “irresponsible” and “dangerous.” A dozen or so people unfriended me. A petition was circulated online, condemning the magazine and my article.
“I lay low for a week or so. Finally, I decided to go out to my local gay bar in Williamsburg, where I’ve been a regular for 11 years. I ordered a drink but nothing felt the same; half the place — people with whom I’d shared many laughs — seemed to be giving me the cold shoulder. Upon seeing me, a friend who normally greets me with a hug and kiss pivoted and turned away.
“Frostiness spread far beyond the bar, too. My best friend, with whom I typically hung out multiple times per week, was suddenly perpetually unavailable. Finally, on Christmas Eve, he sent me a long text, calling me a monster, asking where my heart and soul went, and saying that all our other friends are laughing at me.”
Chadwick Moore had simply remained true to his profession by writing a balanced story on an outspoken Trump supporter for a liberal, gay magazine, and now he found himself excommunicated from the self-proclaimed tolerant neighbors because of his… tolerance.
Moore, feeling “isolated and alone” turned to the broader community for acceptance and he found it among the Trump supporters that the LGBTQ community demands gays reflexively revile.
When he told his family about his feelings he father, a Republican farmer from Iowa, embraced him like never before.
He is dating a Republican construction worker and admits that he finds himself “closer to the right than where the left is today.”
Moore even admits the unfathomable: as he has opened his mind he now finds Ann Coulter smart and funny and not a totally hateful, self-righteous bigot.
Chadwick Moore’s journey of self-discovery is precisely why the left must remain intolerant of open political discourse. That is why they are going to such great lengths – including committing violent acts against those who dare show up to listen to Milo Yiannapoulos – to keep their community thinking in lockstep.
In fact, it explains the left’s fear that drives the intolerance of the woman’s movement as well as the plight of blacks that dare to suggest there just may be a better way.
