Author of landmark plays about gay men and AIDS was felled by coronavirus.
This does not seem magnanimous on the part of LGBT activists.
Biden claims he’s the first member of a presidential administration to publicly voice support for gay marriage.— Guy Benson (@guypbenson) March 16, 2020

I misread Bernie’s broad 2016 ideological coalition as a generic candidate net favorability vote. But it now seems like he combined ideological objections to Hillary from 2 directions, the economic left & the social/racial/gender right, & has mostly retained only the left side— Matt Grossmann (@MattGrossmann) March 8, 2020
I think both Clinton and Sanders perceived Hillary’s attacks on Bernie as insufficiently left on culture to be effective when in fact they were counterproductive.— Matthew Yglesias (@mattyglesias) March 8, 2020
This misunderstanding went on to shape many candidates’ 2020 decision-making. https://t.co/RK1Dj4jA95
Rural/non-college white vote for Sanders in 2016 was mostly socially right of Hillary and those voters are comfortable with Biden now (and in the general that could potentially include some Obama- Trump voters too).— Campaign Diaries (@CampaignDiaries) March 8, 2020
Bernie’s association with the “squad” cost him this vote.
A similar point, looking at why Warren’s campaign imploded. Via Tucker Carlson:
“Warren got derailed. More precisely, she got infected with a virulent strain of identity politics…. Elizabeth Warren went intersectional, and it killed her.”
Coleman Hughes writes:
Perhaps the most pernicious consequence of intersectionality, however, is its effect on the culture of elite college campuses. … It operates as a master formula by which social status is doled out. Being black and queer is better than just being black or queer, being Muslim and gender non-binary is better than being either one on its own, and so forth. By “better,” I mean that people are more excited to meet you, you’re spoken of more highly behind your back, and your friends enjoy an elevated social status for being associated with you. …
At the same time, elite campus culture is overcorrecting for more traditional forms of identity-based oppression by giving cis-straight-white students—or at least those among them who are embedded in the intersectionalist subculture—a choice between being honest with themselves and being held in high esteem by their peers. Ultimately, we should want to create a culture that does not provide strong incentives for people to be anything other than who and what they are.

It’s almost like the gay press would rather 1/3 of the countries on the globe continue to criminalize homosexuality than give @realDonaldTrump an ounce of credit for doing some good on this issue. Shame on @BuzzfeedLGBT for completely distorting the truth. https://t.co/QCqpPdn6DZ— LogCabinRepublicans (@LogCabinGOP) December 29, 2019
