WOKE: Look what happens when gay New Yorker comes out…conservative

Chadwick Moore, a 33-year-old journalist who lives in Williamsburg, had been a lifelong liberal. Then, last September, he penned a profile for Out magazine of Milo Yiannopoulos — a controversial and outspoken critic of feminism, Muslims and gay rights (despite being openly gay himself). Although the Out story didn’t take a positive stance — or any stance — on Yiannopoulos, Moore found himself pilloried by fellow Democrats and ostracized by longtime friends.

Moore tells his story  in the NY Post (below) — including why the backlash drove him to the right.

This man’s experience is emblematic of the goose-stepping, vicious left-wing totalitarians. Those of us with guts and spine to take a stand against the authoritarians are acutely aware of the campaign of destruction against anyone who dares go off the reservation, but for liberals who wake up to this — it’s seismic. It gives us a window into how the authoritarians that went before — brownshirts, blackshirts, nazis, communists — imposed their twisted will on once free societies.

When I was asked to speak at an LGBT event at the Republican National Convention, “Gays for Trump,” along with Milos Yiannopoulos and Jim Hoft, the attacks against us by the left were insane.

The attacks against Chadwick Moore are totally in line with the LGBT’s vicious attacks on my work and me. This is gay leadership. They condemn me (and my colleagues) who oppose the most brutal and extreme ideology on the face of the earth, while stumping for their executioners. They were loud and proud against our ads (below). They were holding press conferences condemning me. Gay organizations in America say nothing about this, but loudly condemned my ad campaign highlighting Muslim oppression of gays under the sharia. That includes the San Francisco Board of Examiners, the Human Rights Commission, SFHRC head transgender Theresa Sparks, but most especially the enemedia.  They called our ads hate and issued a resolution condemning our AFDI ad campaign (the first of its kind) against our organization for merely quoting Muslim political leaders, spiritual leaders and cultural voices in the Muslim community who call for the torture and death of gay people.

I’m a gay New Yorker — and I’m coming out as a conservative

By Chadwick Moore, The New York Post, February 11, 2017 |

Chadwick Moore, a 33-year-old journalist who lives in Williamsburg, had been a lifelong liberal. Then, last September, he penned a profile for Out magazine of Milo Yiannopoulos — a controversial and outspoken critic of feminism, Muslims and gay rights (despite being openly gay himself). Although the Out story didn’t take a positive stance — or any stance — on Yiannopoulos, Moore found himself pilloried by fellow Democrats and ostracized by longtime friends.Here, he tells Michael Kaplan his story — including why the backlash drove him to the right.

When Out magazine assigned me an interview with the Breitbart.com rabble-rouser Milo Yiannopoulos, I knew it would be controversial. In the gay and liberal communities in particular, he is a provocative and loathed figure, and I knew featuring him in such a liberal publication would get negative attention. He has been repeatedly kicked off Twitter for, among other things, reportedly inciting racist, sexist bullying of “Ghostbusters” actress Leslie Jones. Before interviewing Yiannopoulos, I thought he was a nasty attention-whore, but I wanted to do a neutral piece on him that simply put the facts out there.

After the story posted online in the early hours of September 21, I woke up to more than 100 Twitter notifications on my iPhone. Trolls were calling me a Nazi, death threats rolled in and a joke photo that I posed for in a burka served as “proof” that I am an Islamophobe.

I’m not.

Most disconcertingly, it wasn’t just strangers voicing radical discontent. Personal friends of mine — men in their 60s who had been my longtime mentors — were coming at me. They wrote on Facebook that the story was “irresponsible” and “dangerous.” A dozen or so people unfriended me. A petition was circulated online, condemning the magazine and my article. All I had done was write a balanced story on an outspoken Trump supporter for a liberal, gay magazine, and now I was being attacked. I felt alienated and frightened.

I hope New Yorkers can be as accepting of my new status as a conservative man as they’ve been about my sexual orientation.

I lay low for a week or so. Finally, I decided to go out to my local gay bar in Williamsburg, where I’ve been a regular for 11 years. I ordered a drink but nothing felt the same; half the place — people with whom I’d shared many laughs — seemed to be giving me the cold shoulder. Upon seeing me, a friend who normally greets me with a hug and kiss pivoted and turned away.

Frostiness spread far beyond the bar, too. My best friend, with whom I typically hung out multiple times per week, was suddenly perpetually unavailable. Finally, on Christmas Eve, he sent me a long text, calling me a monster, asking where my heart and soul went, and saying that all our other friends are laughing at me.

I realized that, for the first time in my adult life, I was outside of the liberal bubble and looking in. What I saw was ugly, lock step, incurious and mean-spirited.

Still, I returned to the bar a few nights later — I don’t give up easily — and hit it off with a stranger. As so many conversations do these days, ours turned to politics. I told him that I’m against Trump’s wall but in favor of strengthening our borders. He called me a Nazi and walked away. I felt awful — but not so awful that I would keep opinions to myself.

And I began to realize that maybe my opinions just didn’t fit in with the liberal status quo, which seems to mean that you must absolutely hate Trump, his supporters and everything they believe. If you dare not to protest or boycott Trump, you are a traitor.

If you dare to question liberal stances or make an effort toward understanding why conservatives think the way they do, you are a traitor.

It can seem like liberals are actually against free speech if it fails to conform with the way they think. And I don’t want to be a part of that club anymore.

It used to be that if you were a gay, educated atheist living in New York, you had no choice but to be liberal. But as I met more Trump supporters with whom I was able to have engaging, civil discussions about issues that impact us all, I realized that I like these people — even if I have some issues with Trump himself. For example, I don’t like his travel ban or the Cabinet choices he’s made.

But I finally had to admit to myself that I am closer to the right than where the left is today. And, yes, just three months ago, I voted for Hillary Clinton.

When I was growing up in the Midwest, coming out to my family at the age of 15 was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. Today, it’s just as nerve-wracking coming out to all of New York as a conservative. But, like when I was 15, it’s also weirdly exciting.

I’ve already told my family, and it’s brought me closer to my father. He’s a Republican and a farmer in Iowa, and for years we just didn’t have very much to talk about. But after Trump’s inauguration, we chatted for two hours, bonding over the ridiculousness of lefties. But we also got serious: He told me that he is proud of my writing, and I opened up about my personal life in a way I never had before to him.

I’ve made some new friends and also lost some who refuse to speak to me. I’ve come around on Republican pundit Ann Coulter, who I now think is smart and funny and not a totally hateful, self-righteous bigot. A year ago, this would have been unfathomable to me.

I even went on a date this past week with a good-looking Republican construction worker, someone I previously would not have given a shot.

I hope to find out that it pays to keep an open mind.

And I hope that New Yorkers can be as open-minded and accepting of my new status as a conservative man as they’ve been about my sexual orientation.

    The Progressive thought police require that all blacks, women and gays must walk in lock-step with their totalitarian point of view. These people are vicious control freaks capable of emotional and physical violence. Chadwick Moore is a brave freedom fighter, and I salute his sacrifice!

    • The Monster

      The word is indeed “totalitarian” rather than merely “authoritarian” as is repeatedly used in the article. An authoritarian just wants you to comply with his edicts, but a totalitarian insists you publicly profess your beliefs all match the Party Line on everything.

  • helyanwe

    WOW! First of all..this is one scary story, secondly and most importantly, here is a REAL journalist, an intellectually honest journalist , a rarity these days and look what happened to him when he wrote a factual,non-biased piece. The left has become completely unhinged and this is war folks. I applaud you Mr. Moore, for your integrity and your willingness to see beyond your beliefs and have the courage to allow different ones to grow. Thank you for bravely sharing your story.

    Well done Chadwick, it is easy to try and please the crowd, it’s hard to be brave enough to not only realise that you are not a crowd pleaser but to voice that realisation publicly. I salute you sir and send you greetings from Merrie Olde England!

    Good luck, Chadwick! I was a liberal lefty hippy revolutionary in my college days. One of my fond memories is discussing The Population Bomb- the biggest topic for quite a while. My roommates & I all vowed not to have more than 2 kids. I can’t remember if that was before or after we all visited a gyn downtown for IUDs. I went down the rabbit hole after that for like twenty years! I am now, and have been for about that same period of time, twenty years, a conservative, a republican, a traditionalist.
    The way you described being outside the liberal bubble was exactly what it’s like. It reminds me of being on the outside of the ‘in crowd’ in elementary & high school. Very exclusive and demanding club I decided I didn’t like anyway. It seemed to require too much kissing up & then looking down. Being a part of that becomes more important than being yourself. By the time I got to college membership was compulsory. Drugs helped.
    I watched 1984 last night on youtube. The character Julia worked for the Ministry of Truth, Fiction Department. They had a “Hate Week”. I thought we have Hate Week every week! The people were totally controlled by Big Brother. I also highly recommend a quick read of a book “Red Scarf Girl”- memoir of a 12 yr old in Mao’s Cultural Revolution.

    • Drew the Infidel

      Agreed. There is an old saying, “If you are not a liberal when you are young you have no heart. If you are still a liberal when you are older you have no brain.”

  • Florian75

    Mr. Moore welcome to the real world where self preservation, logic, and rational thinking wins out over totalitarian utopian fantasy. I look forward to more of your free thinking and objective reporting. Please continue to speak out against creeping fascism and totalitarianism in our universities and civic institutions. Free speech, free thinking, and civil discourse is essential to our salvation as an enlightened society and must always be a cornerstone of Conservatism.

  • Drew the Infidel

    Adopt this attitude, it works: I have enough people I can call my friends that I do not give a sh*t about the ones who don’t like me or “unfriend” me. Their rush to judgment tells you all you need to know about their so-called friendship. You can’t lose something you never had.

  • GatorDog

    When did the Left become so Socialist? They remind me of Communist Russia or maybe even China. Despicable..

    Good Luck in your quest, now you know how my wife & I have felt living next store to Park Slope.

  • GandalfsTrouserpress

    This echoes my own experience and I am sure that of many others, whose pursuit of Truth, Justice and human rights has led them to leave the cosy but paper thin world of the virtue-signalling Left.
    BB, Jordan Peterson, Milo and the many other heroic sources of sane debate and rational thinking are the beacons we can look to.
    Thank heaven for the internet, the wide range of news sources and our ability to access information that the MSM would seek to ignore.
    The Left liberal bubble is running out of credibility and oxygen. :-)

    The intolerant fascist left only allows for the like-minded, goosestepping Marxist puppets. Any original thought is immediately attacked and destroyed. I guess Mr. Moore learned a valuable lesson…you dance with the devil (liberalism) expect to get the pitch fork.

  • Apothis

    Welcome to the right Mr. Moore. Gay or not you will be embraced by common sense, like minded people.

    Well, the old joke is that a newborn Conservative is the Liberal who got mugged last night. That seems to apply here. This poor guy’s belief system was shattered so naturally he is a bit traumatized. But hey, all I can say to him is…Welcome to the Dark Side! (we have cookies!)

  • Caroline OntheWillapa

    Without calling names or ridiculing the Left, I have to admit that this Left backlash is hurting many of us, including the religious, gays, blacks, browns, yellows, reds, Conservatives, Liberals, straights, and families. Instead of supporting America and POTUS to bring needed change to our government we are fighting among ourselves. How other countries must be laughing! However, the mild to extreme insanity depicted by Hollywood the Left has been a great source of entertainment for this Conservative!

  • Martelson

    The madness of the leftist gay has become a modern version of the old vicious queen of long past. Mean-spirited, selfish and evil. When an gay puts them off – naturally the gay receives the rage as well as that of all their court. Chin up and forward. The times are coming when more will be joining the rest of us. The leftist narrative doesn’t work.

  • David Stephenson

    This is going on my FB page. An almost identical experience to mine. 15+ FB “friends” and family members de-friended me and have stopped speaking to me because I voted for Trump and support his agenda. Thank you for covering this, Pamela!

    • Martelson

      Been having a break from fb. I know I will ‘lose’ persons. Oh, well.
      There’s a lot of gays who are on the right side. The others are just social terrorists.

  • As Adam Baldwin says, “Your lack of tolerance for intellectual diversity has been noted.”

  • just1guywhocares

    Every accusation the left says is a psychological projection…it is they who are the potential Nazis…do you think they would stop at forced “conversions” of people to a gay lifestyle if they had the chance? Health class to include “experimenting” with male penetration? You bet your ass they would (no pun intended)

  • Pa Stark

    Back in the 60’s there was a famous leftist newspaper called The Berkeley Barb. Someone submitted an article that said that if fascism ever comes to this country, it will come from the left. Not only did they refuse to print it, I heard they used his article for toilet paper.

  • Eyal

    As an Israeli gay man, I must say there are more gays in the right than what you’d think. Especially in Israel. The left has shrunk dramatically here because people woke up, including me and many others. Ms Geller, I admire your work and support you, just like many other LGBT people. The hypocrite ones that demonstrate against you are not a reliable representation of the whole community.

    • Martelson

      LGBT persons ought to take notes from the LGBT persons in Israel. What Israel has been dealing with is coming to a place near us.
