Debunking the self loathing argument
For decades now the left has used language as a weapon to attack the right with abandon. It’s always the same steady stream of lies and repetitive justification argument that falls flat when we look at actual facts. Republicans are racists. A fact debunked by the very existence of the Republican party. At the time of the Civil War, there were no Republican slave owners. The party of Lincoln also enjoyed being the party that represented black Americans first in the Senate and House.
There is all sorts of history that demonstrates the Republican Party does not represent racism. There are always isolated individuals. But then the argument becomes that a group of those who are certainly racist, represent the entire party. This too is a false narrative that has never held up to logical or historical scrutiny. The black community has been represented by educated and amazing black men in both the Democrat and Republican party both. The simple fact remains, it was a very long time before black representatives were elected under the banner of the Democrat Party.
What about the argument that LGBTQ people who vote against Democrats are self loathing? This is not only a fabrication with no factual data to support such a claim, it’s quite nearly impossible to hate yourself if you are voting for Republicans based upon the party aligning itself with conservative constitutional values. It’s quite literally meant to be an attack on the character of someone who doesn’t conform by voting and regurgitating party talking points like a Muppet.
At one time LGBTQ people who could not be represented by the mainstream Republican party did in fact find a home with the Log Cabin Republicans, a group that has outlived its usefulness in my opinion. While it was a place to find representation within the Republican party they have done nothing in my lifetime of any value to get their message out to the rest of the LGBTQ community. To this day I can’t tell you the last time I heard anything from them that was even remotely helpful to bringing over voters to the party from the LGBTQ community. No outreach, no support, not a single thing that I can remotely recall hearing about.
So what is this self loathing argument really about? I’m sure most of you reading this already know the basic reasoning behind it. It’s an attack. A shame tactic. A literally bully pulpit tactic to silence opposition. It’s not based in truth. It’s weaponized language. The left has done it to black people for decades before the LGBTQ community became a more viable target and more visible to the public. We’ve seen how Democrats treat the black community and anyone that even thinks about speaking out against the rhetoric of liberals. They are called Uncle Tom, shamed for voting against their race, told they hate themselves, accused of heading back to the plantations. Odd how it was all southern Democrats that owned those plantations. All of those slaves. How were these good people who were voting their heart in what they believed, possibly seeking to head back to the plantations? That never made sense to me.
The same is true of the LGBT community except the circumstances. It’s language meant to shame people into submission. The most volatile individuals who hate LGBTQ people who vote for conservatives are, of course, other gay people. The language becomes vicious. The hatred and contempt. LGBTQ people who have already come out once weather a second storm when they come out a second time and others in the community catch wind of it. Suddenly you’ve become a social pariah. A traitor. You’ve literally been shoved back into the closet if you wish to have any meaningful contact with another human being in hopes of find a connection that isn’t a crazy Nazi queer that would possibly kill you in your sleep for being anything but a Democrat.
You think I’m kidding about that last part, but I’m not. I recently saw a tweet from an 18yo confused person that thinks it is a transgender person. It basically stated that it wanted to go around and sleep with boomers, kill them, and take all their stuff to go and sell. They hate older gays because supposedly they’re the problem. Disturbingly it didn’t seem to discriminate against the idea of killing people regardless of political affiliation but, it was certainly a communist liberal clown.
Liberalism dictates your victim status and you must comply or you must be destroyed. That’s the bottom line. No matter what victim classification you might be, there is no exceptions and they don’t take any prisoners. They regurgitate the same unsubstantiated claims over and over. If they repeat it often enough, say it loud enough, then it must be true in their mind. There is one simple little problem. When asked to cite any data that supports these claims they have none. The shaming of blacks or the shaming of LGBTQ people is the exact same unsupported claim.
Those who use such arguments are simply looking to dominate an exchange. They feel if they can put you on the defensive they’ve won the day. It doesn’t matter if you tell them they’re incorrect or lying. That doesn’t force the issue. You literally have to charge them to find a citation that demonstrates conclusive evidence that such a thing even exists let alone is factually supported by an unbiased source.
Anyone that tells me that I am self loathing because I vote as a Constitutional Conservative has a big problem of their own. They’re demonstrating their insecurities by not being able to debate issues on evidence. They’ve simply reverted to grade school antics and aren’t worth engaging further.
