Absolutely Disgusting: Gay Blogger Forced Off the Net

I believe Gay Patriot has commented here a couple of times. I may be mistaken; someone calling himself Gay Patriot West has posted. I think it's the same guy.

Either way....

It seems a "chill wind" of leftist hatred is a-blowin':

GayPatriot, the anonymous gay Republican blogger, has officially signed off. In a statement, no explanation was given. With GayPatriot’s permission, I am now able to recount the real story.

On Friday, GayPatriot posted “WANTED: GAY TERRORISTS” in which he identified gay activists and bloggers John Aravosis (Americablog) and Michael Rogers (BlogActive) as ["gay terrorists," for their single-minded determination to out gays they disagree with politically].

According to Gay Patriot, who is also a client of mine, Michael Rogers called GayPatriot’s place of employment on Friday immediately following the post above and spoke to GayPatriot’s secretary and boss. GayPatriot had no idea Rogers would go to such measures and shared with me that both he and his secretary were very upset by the calls but that his boss was understanding.

Later on that day, Rogers personally called me and recounted much of the same account, adding that he had also called the police and is working with the authorities on the matter. Rogers expressed feeling threatened by the post and compared it to posts by anti-abortionists who posted the names of doctors performing them.

Rogers also said he asked GayPatriot to remove the post and replace it with a post about non-violence or he would launch a national boycott of GayPatriot’s corporate employer and pursue any and all avenues necessary to protect himself. By the time Rogers had called, GayPatriot had already made the decision to remove the post and also remove GayPatriot from the blogosphere.

GayPatriot was silenced.

Some wonder why I try to remain anonymous -- this would be why.

Confederate Yankee compares the tactics of the left to what he believes is the anti-gay agenda of Jerry Falwell. I think he's a little hard on Falwell, whom I have no use for and am fequently embarassed by but whom I think means well enough, but the left really cannot have it both ways.

They cannot whine about the crushing of dissent and then practice the most thuggish of intimidation tactics themselves.

Obviously, if Gay Patriot has a post in him and needs a forum, standing offer to say his piece here.
