WATCH: Gay Journalist Becomes Conservative After Seeing ‘Paranoia, Mean-spiritednessness’ in Liberalism

Chadwick Moore is a gay journalist living in New York City. After he published a profile of the controversial Milo Yiannopoulos in Out magazine, he received major backlash from Democrats in his life. He was ostracized from his community, attacked online and even received death threats for publishing an unbiased piece. Of the experience, Moore says this:

“I realized that, for the first time in my adult life, I was outside the liberal bubble and looking in. What I saw was ugly, lock step, incurious and mean-spirited.”

Even though three months ago, Moore voted for Hillary Clinton, what he experienced after publishing his piece caused him to seek out conversation with Trump supporters. What he found was more open-mindedness than he’d ever seen in his liberal community. Just recently, he came out as conservative and said it was just as nerve-wracking as when he came out as gay. 

And though it doesn’t seem like he has much hope for this, he ended a piece in the New York Post saying, “I hope that New Yorkers can be as open-minded and accepting of my new status as a conservative man as they’ve been about my sexual orientation.”

Moore spoke with Tucker Carlson on Fox News about his experience in the clip above.
