From Free Beacon:
“Bigoted Homophobe Steve Scalise’s Life Was Saved by a Queer Black Woman,” read the headline from Fusion, which is owned by Univision.
And there was this lovely piece within the article itself.
So it is a point of especially delicious irony that Scalise, who survived the attack (and is reportedly in critical condition), may owe his life to a queer black woman.
I’m sorry. But who gives a crap what race, gender, sexual orientation, etc. this woman is? Especially when terms like “racist” and “homophobe” have been used incorrectly for so long that they no longer have a meaning. When everything is racist, no one knows what racism is anymore.
And no one on Earth knows what the term “queer” means anymore. I thought it was a slur, but apparently it’s used in the LGBTQFRTOGJZITAGTEDCHRARYGUVBLSYPOQWE acronym now. So… not a slur anymore?
You know what I care about? She’s a hero and a great American. Nothing else really matters to anyone other than the author of this article that the clip came from. I can promise you, Scalise and his family don’t care about anything other than that, either, especially since he isn’t as racist as this person thinks he is… because no one on Earth as is as racist as this person thinks anyone who doesn’t agree with them is.
After this shooting, photographs started being released of the heroes of this event, which I thought was great. We need to spend more time focused on the heroes in these situations, and we normally don’t. No one pointed out her race or gender, and this is honestly the first time I’ve heard her described as “queer.” And I honestly don’t give a crap that she’s anything other than a hero. Period. Good on her for being a great American, and thank you to everyone talking about her and the others for highlighting them as the heroes they are.
Black? Female? “Queer?” Honestly, no one cares. As it should be.
