Rising transgender YouTube star and vicenarian Blaire White has received death threats for coming out.
As a center-right “libertarian” that is.
In a post yesterday on her Facebook page, Blaire White said coming out as transgender was easy, but coming out as someone with center-right beliefs has made her life miserable. She explains, “Coming out as transgender was easy and I was met with only positivity from family and friends. Starting my You[T]ube channel and ‘coming out’ with center-right beliefs has wreaked havoc on my life.”
Blaire started her YouTube page just seven months ago, and since then she’s gained over 100,000 subscribers on the popular video sharing site. Her top video has over 500,000 views. However, in the process, she’s made enemies. She has received death threats, and was attacked and threatened by the black supremacy hate group known as Black Lives Matter.
“Within the first month, feminists in my town tried to get me evicted from the place I was living [in] at the time, I lost a significant amount of friends, and overall people were super shitty to me. Then [Black Lives Matter] tried doxing [publishing private information about her on the internet with malicious intent] me and threatening my family,” she continued.
Blaire’s rapid rise in popularity may stem from a similar vein tapped by Brietbart Technology Editor Milo Yiannopoulos over the last few years. Milo initially gained significant attention, and backlash, for expressing his own ideology and beliefs through his platform on Brietbart. Milo happens to be gay, but his conservative philosophy doesn’t mesh well with many young students on campuses around the country, as well as many media and technology professionals around the world. Coincidentally, Blaire’s most popular video involves her commentary on some of Milo’s events (see below). The LGBT conservative movement seems to be exactly that – a genuine movement.
Perhaps young LGBT members like Milo and Blaire can help open some eyes to the hate and bigotry being spread by liberals and the Black Lives Matter movement. LGBT libertarians and conservatives might enjoy a special sort of privilege versus their straight white male counterparts. While they receive criticism and hatred for their opinions, it probably pales in comparison to what a heterosexual white man might encounter if he were to express similar opinions. Straight white conservative men, and conservatives and libertarians from all walks of life, really are the newly oppressed. Perhaps this makes LGBT conservatives and libertarians the best figureheads for the non-leftist voice. Milo covered the root of male oppression oh so eloquently in a speech at University of Bristol last year:
It’s not just hate speech and bigotry – suppression of free speech against conservatives and libertarians seems to be the new normal now. As one example, just last week Milo was permanently banned from using Twitter, most likely due to liberal Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey not agreeing with his strong opinions. It’s fascinating to see that those who attack and attempt to silence libertarians and conservatives are incapable of seeing their own bigotry and hate for what it is. Bigotry and hate often go unnoticed by those who perpetrate the act as they feel justified in their behavior. Yesterday, Black Lives Matter protesters at the DNC convention screamed with impunity, “White people get to the back. Black people come to the front. Take your rightful positions.” Their screams hearkening us back to the days when Rosa Parks and others simply said, “No, thank you.” History doesn’t repeat, but it certainly rhymes. These truly are the new racists:
Blaire summarizes her post on Facebook, “I’m not saying this as a ‘woe is me’ post. I’m a big girl and I can handle whatever comes my way. But the point is to say that ‘coming out’ as someone with any set of beliefs that are not perfectly far-left is more dangerous than coming out as transgender these days.”
