Run afoul of a small minority of the nation’s residents? You won’t like the results
(NY Times) Ian Reisner, one of the two gay hoteliers facing boycott calls for hosting an event for Senator Ted Cruz, who is adamantly opposed to gay marriage, apologized to the gay community for showing “poor judgment.”
Mr. Reisner put the apology on Facebook, where a page calling for a boycott of his properties, the gay-friendly OUT NYC hotel and his Fire Island Pines holdings, had gotten more than 8,200 “likes” by Sunday evening.
“I am shaken to my bones by the e-mails, texts, postings and phone calls of the past few days. I made a terrible mistake,” wrote Mr. Reisner.
The New York Times first reported on the event, a dinner and on April 20, at the duplex Mr. Reisner and his business partner Mati Weiderpass co-own on Central Park South in Manhattan. The event was a “fireside chat” for about a dozen people, but was not a fund-raiser.
His Facebook groveling apology reads in full
I am shaken to my bones by the e-mails, texts, postings and phone calls of the past few days. I made a terrible mistake. I was ignorant, naive and much too quick in accepting a request to co-host a dinner with Cruz at my home without taking the time to completely understand all of his positions on gay rights. I’ve spent the past 24 hours reviewing videos of Cruz’ statements on gay marriage and I am shocked and angry. I sincerely apologize for hurting the gay community and so many of our friends, family, allies, customers and employees. I will try my best to make up for my poor judgement. Again, I am deeply sorry.
In other words, the typical nastiness, vile language, threats, etc, which emanate from the Left caused a meltdown. Just remember this whenever a Leftist yammers on about how tolerant they are. The comments for that post are littered with intolerance, such as
He’s apparently been deleting the more virulent comments. He’s damned if he does, damned if he doesn’t. Back to NY Times
Mr. Reisner’s apology came before a scheduled protest march tomorrow evening in front of OUT NYC.
In addition to the boycott calls, Broadway Cares, a charity that focuses on curing AIDS, canceled an annual event at a nightclub the two men own.
Erik Erickson refers to this as the “totalitarianism of the gay rights movement“. Realistically, this is simply the totalitarianism of the political Left. Lefties deride President George W Bush for proclaiming “you’re either with us or with them” regarding Islamic terrorism, yet, the totalitarian Left puts President Bush’s attacks on Islamic terrorism to shame with their attacks on anyone who either strays from the Liberal plantation or was never on it. As Erickson notes “It’s that they ruthlessly try to destroy anyone who dissents and now anyone who agrees with their agenda, but who dares to allow dissenters into their homes on unrelated business.“
