Denise McAllister is a well-known journalist with The Federalist, a conservative publication. She recently made a series of tweets criticizing a fellow conservative journalist over his homosexuality after she said he attacked her for being normal. In response, she was fired from her job and she later tweeted that Ben Shapiro messaged her saying that she was no longer invited on his show for criticizing a sodomite:
Days after being at the center of this week’s favorite meme (“You were at my wedding Denise….”), conservative writer Denise McAllister made headlines again on Saturday, this time for homophobic tweets.
McAllister has been fired from her role at the popular conservative website The Federalist for her exchange with journalist, Yashar Ali. Ben Domenech, publisher of The Federalist and husband of Meghan McCain, revealed in a tweet on Sunday that McAllister was terminated by the publication.
The firing stems as a result of McAllister’s attack on Ali, a popular journalist who writes for New York Magazine and HuffPost, who is openly gay. The unpleasant exchange started when Ali responded to a tweet by McAllister about her husband’s rude response to her attempt to speak with him while he watched sports.
McAllister fired back with a series of hateful messages, that have since been deleted. “A gay man commenting on a heterosexual relationship is just. Sad. Pathetic really,” she tweeted.
McAllister continued, “I think @yashar has a crush on me. Maybe I’m making him doubt his love of penis.”
The taunting escalated in a crude, since-deleted tweet about Ali’s sexuality: “Oh so sad. @yashar is lost. He doesn’t know his purpose as a man. He doesn’t know his purpose as a human being. He doesn’t know his purpose as an Individual. So he wallows and tries to find himself in another man’s a******. Sad.”
Although she deleted the messages, McAllister stood by the point she was trying to make. “I have defensed masculinity & have been ridiculed for it. Maligned for loving my husband as a man & celebrating my role as a woman. Yet I’m the devil in the eyes of many. I criticize a gay man who dares to mock my relationship. And I’m the devil. You do see how f***ed up this is,” she added.
Conservative political commentator, Ben Shapiro, apparently told McAllister she was no longer welcome on his show.
“The minute Ben Shapiro DMed me that I was no longer welcome bc I had criticized a gay man the way I did despite the times I’ve been threatened for standing for conservative principles, the right of women to vote contrary to the feminist herd, and support of masculinity, I quit,” she said in a tweet that has also been deleted.
As for Ali, he responded by sharing a touching message about his own journey.
“I was bullied for being Iranian as a kid. But I never felt ashamed of my ethnicity,” said Ali. “I came out on 8/17/2001 & while it hasn’t always been easy, I have always been proud of who I am. I’m Iranian, gay, and Catholic. Perhaps an odd combo, but I wouldn’t change who I am for the world.”
One can see the screenshots below, which have since been archived:
Notice too that on her archived tweets, she said she worked PJ Media as well, another major “conservative” outlet funded in part by Robert Shillman, somebody which we have written about extensively with deep ties to the military-industrial complex and promoting the anti-Islam/counter-jihad nonsense that is but a front for nationalism and militarism.
This entire exchange of tweets, if one looks, took place over a span of approximately two hours.
In that time, ONE TWEET that was critical of the sodomites destroyed her entire career in the conservative movement, going so far as to have Ben Shapiro personally tell her that he did not want her on any more specifically because she said one thing against the sodomites.
Now let’s put this into a bit of context.
I am not going to sit here and say that “Islam is good” or to praise it, because it objectively is not good. However, the sodomites are also not good, and yet I will speak against them for the same reason that I criticize Islam, which is one of philosophical and moral principles. Yet consider the difference between the two. Most people will not say anything bad if one criticizes the Muslims, and for many people one will receive accolade. However, if somebody based on the same principles through which one opposes Islam criticizes the LGBT, it is no longer “Death to America, Allahu Akbar,” but a veritable cry of “Death to the heretic, long live Sodom.”
In times such as these, it is very difficult to stand up for hard truths. One of these truths is the Biblical teaching on the LGBT, which is that it is a sin that cries to Heaven for vengeance and incurs the anger of God. This is why Sodom was destroyed, as a sign for all times about the evil of that sin, yet this sin today must be veritably “embraced” if one wants to keep one’s job in many cases, let alone to advance oneself.
There are many things that can be said about the Conservative movement and which one can read in the archives here, but this incident should make clear the obvious, which is that the movement has become rotten to the core as it involves swearing alliegance to and never criticizing that one sin, and a serious one too.
In ancient Rome, Christians were put to death for refusing to do the simple act of lighting a candle or offering a gift to a statue of the Emperor, as this was seen as an act of worship, even if they did not believe in it. Christians chose death for Christ over even the superficial display of this act.
Homage to the LGBT is the new offering to the emperor. If one does not make the “offering,” one will be economically and socially destroyed. Indeed, we have experienced something of this, and we are proud to have done it, would do it again and will continue to do it because it is a matter of truth versus error, not popular sentiments or feelings.
Having noted this, remember the coliseums. Times change,but man does not. One would be foolish to think that Christians, if they were fed to lions in years past, may not experience a similar situation in the future, albeit in a modernized context, for refusal to make the same act.
It is something to think about.
