The left rarely engages me on policy, which is smart considering they support intellectually and morally bankrupt policies and I support time-tested policies that would actually improve the lives of all Americans – including gays and lesbians. Instead of engaging on policy they rely on personal attacks and name-calling, which is fine, I am a big boy and I can take it.
The most recent line of attacks from the left, and their RINO enablers, is that I am “mean” or “brash” or “too aggressive.” If standing firm for what I believe in makes me mean or brash or too aggressive than I am guilty as charged – and I certainly won’t apologize for that.
I know my style isn’t for everyone, and I won’t win any Miss Congeniality awards. Hell the quote on my facebook page says, “No one has ever accused me of being too nice.”
But let’s be honest, the left doesn’t hate me because I am mean or brash or too aggressive – the same label can be applied to many of my critics. No, the left hates me because I have the audacity to stand up to them. They hate me because I am a conservative who happens to be gay. They hate me because I won’t be bullied by them. They hate me because I have dared to wander off the liberal plantation, because I refuse to play the victim card, and because I have rejected their failed big government agenda.
So if the left is looking for an apology for things I say on twitter or the things I write on my blog or for statements I make on TV, they won’t get one. Indeed, they can expect more of the same.
