The LGBTQ SJW’s have struck again. In an article from the Daily Wire it says that:
“In his latest movie “Falling,” actor Viggo Mortensen plays a gay man whose conservative father comes to live with him in Los Angeles. Given that Mortensen is not himself a gay man, some LGBTQ activists believe that the role should have gone to a man who actually identifies that way.”
How ridiculous is this? Why do people fall for this? These people have tried time and again to stop straight people from playing gay or trans folks in movies and unfortunately, some have capitulated to this unruly mob. Luckily, this time Mortensen is not backing down. He says in the article that, “And how do you know what my life is? You’re assuming that I’m completely straight. Maybe I am, maybe I’m not. And it’s frankly none of your business. I want my movie to work, and I want the character of John to be effective. So, if I didn’t think it was a good idea I wouldn’t do it.”
These are actors. That is what they do for a living. So, if I was to take this to its absolute rock bottom and ridiculous conclusion, then how is Neil Patrick Harris, an openly gay man, allowed to play a straight man who “loves to get his F*** on” and it isn’t with any dudes? I haven’t heard any complaints about this.
To switch gears just a little bit, but they also aren’t happy with what is being taught in our schools. For a group that represents approximately 4.5% of the population at best, the group seems to think that they can interject themselves into our education system in an insidious attempt to indoctrinate the youth of this country. We are talking from kindergarten all of the way through high school.
Why does the education system allow this to happen? I can tell you why. First, If a group on the left doesn’t get what they want, they immediately start bullying that person or those people. Of course, along with that come the invectives of homophobe and transphobe. Second, the education system, this time from K-college, has been overrun by the radical left.
God help you if you don’t toe the party line of the ultra progressive left. I lived this for many years in the suburban New York district I worked in and I can say with 100% conviction that it has gotten worse every single year.
Although it may be difficult, the right and the more moderate left need to stand up to this group. They represent nothing that resemble the values that I hold, and I most certainly will not be bullied into saying or doing something that goes against what I believe.
So, kowtowing to fringe groups like this especially when we disagree with what they believe is a direct violation of the first amendment. As I have said before, as long as I am not threatening you, I have the right to believe and say what I want. That makes me nothing more than an independent thinking American.
I am guaranteed that in the Constitution of the United States.
