In the grand tradition of the Log Cabin Republicans siding with people who hate them, the group has asked far-right commentator and self-proclaimed internet troll Isabella Riley Moody to be one of their 2023 Outspoken Ambassadors.
LCR describes their ambassadors as “fearlessly and unapologetically outspoken” people who have “charismatic and thoughtful perspectives at a time when so many people feel bullied into silence.” But who, exactly, is it who feels bullied into silence?
Maybe the trans kids who have become the target of Republican legislatures all over the country and who often have little to no community support and are lucky if they have support from their own families?
Of course not. The people being “bullied into silence” are the ones who want to do and say whatever they want, no matter how hurtful, no matter how much it inspires bigotry that leads to violence, no matter how untrue, without any consequences. “[These] anti-left free-thinkers are ready to inform, inspire and amuse as they join the only media outlet dedicated to pushing back against radical gender and alphabet nonsense,” reads the Outspoken editorial announcing the 2023 Ambassadors.
