After Many Years of Ugly Anti-Gay Rhetoric, Hate-Blogger Jim Hoft Announces He’s Gay

The Stupidest Man on the Internet is now the Stupidest Gay Man on the Internet

In today’s right wing plot twist, Jim Hoft, the fabled Stupidest Man on the Internet, who has been spouting virulent anti-gay rhetoric for many years and openly associating with homophobic hate groups, has written a post for Breitbart “News” in which he comes out of the closet: After the Pulse Club Massacre, It’s Time for Gays to Come Home to Republican Party.

Like most gay Americans, I don’t wear my sexuality on my sleeve. I go about my daily business. I try not to harm anyone. I love my family. I love my friends. I love my country.

I’ve been a conservative activist for years. But today I’m coming out as a conservative gay activist.

In the past few years I’ve built one of the most prominent conservative websites in America. I created The Gateway Pundit because I wanted to speak the truth. I wanted to expose the wickedness of the left. I was raised to love my country. Today I serve my country by defending her from the socialist onslaught.

The idea that gays should “come home” to the Republican Party is so delusional it beggars description; this is the party whose presidential candidates openly endorse a far right pastor who thinks gays should be executed, a party that works ceaselessly to deny basic rights to LGBT people, a party that has tried for years to pass amendments to the US Constitution that would permanently ban gay marriage, etc., etc. The list of Republican anti-gay positions is practically endless.

For Hoft to say he “tries not to harm anyone” and wants to “speak the truth,” well — wow. Again, this is the guy who for years has been propagating every fake and/or dishonest right wing conspiracy theory that bubbles out of the fever swamp, a guy who spread a completely phony story that the cop who shot Michael Brown in Ferguson had suffered major injuries after being attacked by Brown and used a crudely altered version of a CT scan to do it, a guy who often cites white supremacist websites and has even plagiarized them for his crummy right wing blog, a guy who often refers to black protesters with dehumanizing terms like “roaches.”

And when I criticized Hoft for citing a vicious anti-gay hate group (“Mass Resistance”) to spread a crazed fear-mongering fable about Obama’s Assistant Deputy Secretary for the Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools, Kevin Jennings, he publicly accused me of “supporting child porn in classrooms.”

While at first I was surprised to see this statement from Jim Hoft, I now realize it actually explains his long history of ugly anti-gay rhetoric; many studies have found that homophobic attitudes are more likely among deeply closeted individuals.

It makes sense for him to pick Breitbart “News” as his venue to make this announcement, since the most popular writer they have at the moment is a weird, self-hating gay man who openly supports white supremacists, frequently indulges in grotesque race-baiting, and hates women so much he accuses “feminized culture” of causing mass murders. The major difference between Milo Yiannopoulos and Jim Hoft is that Yiannopoulos can actually write two sentences without misspelling four words.

But I hope Hoft won’t be surprised to find that not all of his right wing readers are going to accept his revelation with equanimity. As I write, this is the very first comment at the top of the Breitbart “News” thread:

You “pray”, yet call God a liar by trying to justify your homosexuality. God is very clear that homosexuality is an ACTION and an abomination in His sight. So according to God, there is no “gay”. Only a sinful act that He hates.
As for me, the tragedy of it all is the 49 people who woke up in Hell yesterday because they knew not the Lord.
