Lefties are so plugged into their own fantasy world in which gays are superior to normal people that they have trouble understanding that at least some countries are not so enamoured of gays. In fact, some people want to throw gays off roof tops.
The rotting corpse of a hard left website Daily Beast, which offers pure leftist poopaganda with no pretense of objectivity, made news today.
Excerpt from the Associated Press
RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — The Daily Beast has withdrawn a story that prompted ire of many readers, complaining that it could have outed gay athletes at the Rio Games.
The story’s removal from the site Thursday night came hours after the editor-in-chief for the publication apologized for the article, which was first revised before being taken down completely.
“Today we did not uphold a deep set of The Daily Beast’s values,” read a statement on the site. “These values – which include standing up to bullies and bigots, and specifically being a proudly, steadfastly supportive voice for LGBT people all over the world – are core to our commitment to journalism and to our commitment to serving our readers.”
The story talked about how athletes use dating apps such as Bumble, Grindr, Jack’d, and Tinder to connect with people at the games. A reporter for the site said in the story that he got three dates in his first hour of trying and also detailed what some men wrote on their profiles on Grindr, a popular gay dating app.
Readers and social media users quickly voiced concern that the details in the original version of the story could not only out gay athletes, but also potentially threaten their safety.
Those concerns, Daily Beast editor-in-chief John Avlon wrote in issuing the first apology, were legitimate.
And so a leftist propaganda piece designed to promote homosexuality backfires.
