Ian Reisner is a real estate developer and one of two gay businessmen who met with Ted Cruz last week. One would think there would be nothing wrong with such a meeting. After all, this is place where individuals are free to make up their own minds regarding their beliefs, whether spiritual, political or anything in between. I mean, we are talking America, right?
Well, if you haven’t been paying attention, there are certain groups of people who are not ‘allowed’ to make up their own minds, lest they be attacked, ridiculed, threatened, and even boycotted to affect their bottom-line and their livelihood.
As a black conservative woman, I could tell you countless stories of ugly comments hurled at me not from Republicans, but from black and white Democrats. According to their way of thinking, I should wear my political leanings on my skin. One need only look at me and assume that I am a Democrat. After all, I am black.
Such a way of thinking is not only bigoted, it is insulting. In today’s America, if you are a minority, a woman, or a homosexual, you are expected to be a rabid Democrat. Dare to even speak with someone who is not to learn a bit more about what they believe, especially if you are a public figure, then you will be made to suffer.
We saw it with Brandon Eichner, former CEO and founder of Mozilla who was forced out of the company that he founded when it was discovered that he donated to Proposition 8 in California. We see it quite frequently with Christian business owners who are being sued for not wanting to participate in a same-sex wedding with their services. Most recently, the owners of Sweet Cakes by Melissa were ordered to pay $135,000 to a lesbian couple who claimed 88 instances of distress, including mental rape, because the Christian owners would not agree to bake a same-sex wedding cake.
Even worse, the crowd-funding site gofundme canceled their fundraising efforts to help pay this exorbitant fine after being leaned on by the Gaystapo. Now, Ian Reisner, one of the gay businessmen who dared meet with Texas Senator and Tea Party favorite Ted Cruz, has been shamed and bullied into apologizing for this decision. He posted the following message on his Facebook page.
Will the Gaystapo and militant Left be appeased by this forced apology? Judging by the responses to his “tail between his legs” apology, the answer is no.
Here are but a few intolerant and irrational comments to his post.
So, was Reisner supposed to vet someone without speaking with them?
So, all gay people are supposed to believe the same thing in regards to “marriage equality?” Oh, yeah. If you’re gay, then you are supposed to believe monolithically what you are told to believe.
This next guy is really off his rocker, accusing Reisner and his partner of using and abusing young gay men and leaving them to die. He really needs some help with the alternate reality he is living in.
And, of course, any progressive militant activist attack would not be complete without name-calling in a way that demonstrates their own hate-filled, ignorant bigotry.
Welcome to today’s America, where being gay, a minority, or a woman and daring to think outside of the progressive agenda makes you a target for destruction from those hypocritical Liberals calling for tolerance.
