MSNBC host Joy Reid is under fire for homophobic blog posts that she now alleges were actually put there by a hacker.
Gay conservatives are responding.
Charles Moran, a former California chairman of Log Cabin Republicans and the 2016 Trump campaign’s LGBTQ media surrogate, told The Daily Caller, “The reaction by ‘Gay Inc.’ (the national LGBT ‘advocacy’ organization) and the left-wing apologists in the media has been predictable, and the double-standard is glaring. It’s clear – they will try to tow the Democratic Party line and bash Trump while refusing to hold their own accountable, and this includes Joy Reid.”
“I don’t know Joy Reid and don’t read her blog – what I do see is how left-wing media and the LGBT front groups won’t hold their own accountable,” he said.
“Yesterday, Democratic Senators were overruled on their blocking of Richard Grenell’s nomination to be Ambassador to Germany. Grenell is now the highest profile LGBT appointee by a Republican Administration in history. Democrats blocked it for months. And the left-wing media and Gay Inc hasn’t even acknowledged the importance of President Trump’s high-visibility appointment of an openly gay man. Most of the gay press didn’t even report that he had been confirmed. These are the lengths the left-wing media will go to push a deceptive narrative that differs from the truth.”
Moran also said that there was a double standard in “the LGBT faux-advocacy world.”
“So the double-standard is real in the mainstream media and the LGBT faux-advocacy world. Their disdain for President Trump and their progressive elitism and disdain average American values overrides their commitment to journalistic integrity,” he added.
Gregory Angelo, President of the Log Cabin Republicans, also sounded off to TheDC about Reid.
“I’ve met Joy Reid and have actually been her guest on MSNBC in the past,” Angelo said.
The Log Cabin Republicans are one of the oldest gay conservative groups in the country. The group describes themselves as “LGBT Republicans and straight allies who support equality under the law for all, free markets, individual liberty, limited government, and a strong national defense.”
