Idiotic Out Magazine Is Now Publishing Identical Michael Lucas Op-Eds As Conservative Trash Site Breitbart
It’s not clear which site he sent this boring trash to first, but both Out Magazine and Breitbart have run an identical op-ed that defends Donald Trump supporters, and it was written by fellow racist Michael Lucas.
The article appeared on the pointless Out (a worthless gay entertainment magazine that’s now best known for glamorizing horrific bigoted clown Milo Yiannopoulos) first, on October 27th. One day later, it was published on conservative rag Breitbart (perhaps not coincidentally, where Milo Yiannopoulos is a frequent contributor).
In the piece, Lucas (or whichever dumb trick he has regurgitating his racist drivel onto his iPad) spends hundreds of words trying to defend a couple of gay Trump supporters who were—rightfully—bullied and insulted online after being profiled in the Wall Street Journal. The opening to the Lucas op-ed, as it appears identically on both sites:
One of the core beliefs of the movement for LGBT equality has always been that anti-gay bullying, especially of young people, must end. And yet, in recent days, thousands of online comments and threats from LGBT people have been directed against two young gay men who expressed their opinions about the current presidential race.
At a Donald Trump rally in Cincinnati on October 13, Wall Street Journal senior producer Jason Bellini interviewed a gay couple who are both supporters of the GOP candidate. Although Bellini initially did not name them, a gay activist later “outed” the duo as 31-year-old Dewey Lainhart and his 22-year-old fiance, Cody Moore. When asked if they were comfortable being affectionate at the rally, Lainhart replied “Yeah. Ain’t nobody saying nuthin’ about us,” and, “I have a lot of gay friends who support Trump.” Lainhart said he works in the steel industry, and is “Tired of the bullshit government. Time for a change. Trump’s the man for it.” Moore added he believes Trump “would bring more jobs to the country.”
That was essentially the entire substance of the interview, which has provoked an astonishing backlash. Hundreds of thousands of online views have led to thousands of comments, most of them furious with Lainhart and Moore, who have been ridiculed as “hillbilly morons” and “rednecks.” In a follow-up report, the couple told Bellini they “have received death threats from gay people warning them not to leave their house or go to any gay clubs. One message to them, they say, told them to drink bleach.”
The full article, which I won’t bore you with here, runs word-for-word the same on both Out and Breitbart, save for one slight difference in one paragraph on Breitbart. The Out version contains a direct mention and link to The Advocate (which, not surprisingly, is owned by the same parent company as Out, Here Media):
And it’s not only individual members of the LGBT community who are denying gays their right to an opposing opinion. Just last week, The Advocate published an opinion piece by someone who concluded that although PayPal founder Peter Thiel has sex with other men, he should not be considered gay, because he’s a Republican who has endorsed Trump. Who is in charge of devising these bizarre litmus tests?
In the Breitbart version, they’ve edited out mention of The Advocate, probably because an alt-right editor didn’t want to inundate their mouth-breathing insane readers with too much gay shit:
And it’s not only individual members of the LGBT community who are denying gays their right to an opposing opinion. Just last week, a leading LGBT magazine published a column by someone who concluded that although PayPal founder Peter Thiel has sex with other men, he should not be considered gay, because he’s a Republican who has endorsed Trump. Who is in charge of devising these bizarre litmus test?
It’s not clear if Breitbart, which has published similarly awful Michael Lucas articles in the past, knew they were publishing an article that was published on a gay site less than a day earlier, and it’s not clear if Out gave a conservative website permission to run what appears to be their content. More than likely, Michael Lucas sent his article to both sites without telling them what he was doing (he’s been accused of fraudulently defecating on other people’s properties before, of course). Either way, pretty fun to see that we’ve now reached a point in gay media where both Out and Breitbart are running the exact same content from the exact same disgraced bigot. I wonder if both sites have already paid him for the same thing?
