Conservatives under attack: Black, Gay, Lesbian

At Common American Journal we know many conservatives are entrenched in the belief that gay and lesbian people cannot be conservative in their political preferences. It’s unfathomable to us, but the belief sadly prevails. Fortunately the arena for this ideology is shrinking more every year thanks in large part to the blogsphere and some brilliant writers therein.

Long ago we were young liberals ourselves, though much less radical than David Horowitz and others in the national media, and we’ve seen how they think and work. If you are a member of any one of a number of demographics in America you must, they believe, therefore also be a liberal. Woman, who are “victimized” by their gender, and lesbian women doubly so. Gay men, also “victims” in the eyes of liberals who would legislate everyone’s troubles away. And haven’t our black citizens benefited from more than 40 years of entitlements, affirmative action, and the inheritance of Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society? Well, that goes without saying.

Or does it?

Conservative bloggers like Kevin Jackson are teaching us how the Democrats have victimized black Americans since the Civil War. He regularly expounds on the topic and is the author of a thought-changing book, The Big Black Lie. One of the most informative exchanges we’ve heard in years took place on Jackson’s internet radio program, The Black Sphere, on the evening that he and ACORN whistle-blower Anita Moncrief discussed their struggle to break from the Democrat Party and its liberal agenda, and the perils of being a black conservative.

Now we’ve learned that gays and lesbians who have moved onto the conservative political scene are being subjected to the same abuses at the hands of liberals. And to illustrate the point we will direct readers to yesterday’s post by blogger Cynthia Yockey (“A Conservative Lesbian”), “Kevin Dujan of Hill Buzz is NOT a racist and he needs our help.” (One of CAJ’s very favorite posts at Hill Buzz is, “Thank you former President George W. Bush and former First Lady Laura Bush,” written 10 November 2009. We would urge you to read that poignant message.)

Cynthia wrote:

The Daily Kos and Democratic Underground have outed Kevin Dujan as the owner of the blog, Hill Buzz. They are smearing him with the false charge that that he is a racist. They are urging their readers to destroy his career and attack him physically. (I’m not linking them, but you can verify this by Googling. Instead, I suggest you read Hill Buzz here.)

The Right blogosphere should rally to the aid of Dujan and Hill Buzz, as he has tirelessly rallied to ours with dozens of posts teaching Republicans how to campaign effectively and supporting Republicans, including Gov. Sarah Palin and now Sen.-elect Scott Brown. If you are not familiar with Hill Buzz, here is a wonderful sample post — they are observing the first anniversary of Obama’s inauguration with the thank-you letter they wrote to Pres. George W. Bush last year.

In my transition from lifelong Democrat and liberal during the presidential campaign in 2008, I started reading blogs so I would be able to explain to my Democrat friends that I had legitimate reasons for supporting McCain/Palin. STOP LAUGHING!!! Since I was briefly a Hillary PUMA, I read PUMA blogs and liked Hill Buzz the best. I began to read Hill Buzz every day some time in September or October of 2008. I assure my gentle readers, Kevin Dujan and the rest of the Hill Buzz boyz are not racists. They oppose racial entitlement and racial grievance hate-mongering. That is not racism.

Hill Buzz is written by a group of gay men in Chicago who began the blog in early 2008 as part of their efforts on behalf of Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Thanks to experiencing the dirty tricks of the Obama campaign up close and personal during the primaries, as soon as the Democratic nomination was stolen from Hillary, they became supporters of John McCain. They blogged, campaigned, phonebanked and donated money for McCain/Palin with unbounded zeal and passion.

Now Kevin Dujan and Hill Buzz need our support. We MUST push back against FALSE charges of racism because Lefties will use it to destroy innocent people as long as it keeps working. Certainly if we do not hang together on this, we will hang separately.

What are the best ways to express your support? Here are some suggestions…

Today’s post at GayPatriot (a member of our links list) addresses the election of Scott Brown and the issue of gay politics and political correctness. The comments on the site are worth reading, too.

By avoiding gay issues and focusing on economic ones, GOP candidates can more readily repeat Scott Brown’s feat

Posted by B. Daniel Blatt – January 21, 2010.

While gay leaders and activists are rending their garments and gnashing their teeth in the wake of Republican Scott Brown’s victory in John Kerry’s Massachusetts, in a fit of pique not seen since Brokeback Mountain failed to win an Academy Award for Best Picture, they’re missing one of the big stories of the race, perhaps the biggest for gay people.

Were these activists not so determined to bind their gay identity to their partisan loyalty, they might have realized that this Republican who once supported a referendum on a state constitutional amendment to enshrine the traditional definition of marriage in the state constitution, pretty much avoided gay issues on the campaign trail.

Indeed, when I did a few google searches to investigate the claims of gay left-wingers that Brown was anti-gay, I could find no evidence he harbored animus against homosexuals and only one time he addressed gay issues in the campaign. And he wasn’t the one who raised the issue. It came up in a meeting with editors of the Boston Herald. He said gay marriage was “settled law” in Massachusetts; “People have moved on.” And so had he.

In his campaign, Scott Brown ignored gay issues to address the economic and national security concerns of his constituents. If Republicans in other left-leaning jurisdictions wish to repeat his feat this fall, they would be wise to take heed. Demonizing gays or harping on gay marriage is not the means to win election.

Focus on the idea, freedom, and the issues, reducing the size of government and providing for the common defense, which unite our party.
