Minneapolis News Anchor attacked in homophobic incident
Matt Belanger, an Emmy-winning news anchor on KSTP-TV 5 Eyewitness News in Minneapolis, Minnesota, was viciously attacked on his way to work in what police believe was a hate crime fueled by homophobia.
Who wants to nurse him back to health and help him deal with the inevitable PTSD?
Has anyone had him?

Fuck the breeder that attacked him. I say put HIS eye out.

It is amazing how often we are victims of violence without broad society noticing. If the attack had been against a black or Jewish person, this case would not be limited to the pages of gay or local news.

Y'know R5. I HOPE that you're not the kinda gay that rolls his eyes every time you read about racism or sexual harassment.
Blacks and Jews MADE it a big deal when something like that happens. The reason why you can't say anything about Blacks or Jews is because they'll crawl up your ass and come out the other end if you do. It's OUR fault that shit like this doesn't get the kind of coverage you're complaining about.
Get off your computer and do something. Write to the fucking news stations, etc. I mean...don't be mad that those groups have respect because they fought for it.

Are we sure Ted Baxter wasn't involved?

The reality is that gay people are still being attacked.
People need to stop believing the propaganda that gay people no longer have struggles or that we've an accepted part of society.

The reality is gays and lesbians keep getting caught faking hate crimes which hasn’t helped. Setting up a Gofundme two seconds later is a dead giveaway. We even have gay YouTubers faking hate crimes.

From OP's article:
[quote] While in police custody, authorities said Williams “made statements indicating that he assaulted Belanger because he perceived that he was homosexual,”
Why would someone say that AFTER the fact? He just increased his jail term.

We all know the attacker was a closeted fucking POS who really wanted to kiss Matt.

r15 People in every demographic category have faked hate crimes, scumbag. Blacks, Jews, whites, Republicans. There's no proof that this is more common among gay people, but there's plenty that real hate crimes happen more often against us. What is the point of bringing up Jussie here? The suspect has already admitted his guilt, idiot. If you're harboring some repressed anger at discussions of gay victimism, Datalounge is not for you. Go to 4chan spread some CP for the lulz in-between sessions of pro-Trump circlejerks and dimwitted attempts at conspiring to push the LGBTP tag to the mainstream.

Thanks R6, for some reason I was expecting a white piece of shit, I had imagined some White Power neo-Nazi thing. But a piece of shit by any other name.... is still a piece of shit

R18 is on the money here I reckon. And POS was never going to be able to kiss Matt or anyone like him cos he is a hideous piece of shit

We are living in the age of social justice warrior-ism where victimization and oppression grant special privileges and attention.

Another gay radio host who faked a hate crime. We were actually following this case.

The bottom line is, in the age of social media and Narcissism, don’t jump the gun and be too eager to hop on the bandwagon. It can backfire, more often than not these days.

They have respect because unlike certain groups of people hating them, EVERY group of people hates gay men. People don't call others stupid Jew or say "that's so Jewish".
That's why no one cares, because everyone wants gay men to be their punching bag. They all need someone to hate and everyone silently agrees that gay men are the ones that should be hated. No one hates blacks or Jews as much as gay men are hated.

The largest number of hate crimes are against gays.
Are you saying they are all made up

Bingo. It's ALL about monetizing your social media "brand". Getting likes and subscribers is a tough slog if you try to do it legally and ethically. How do you stand out from the pack these days with SO much content out there? Easy. Take a short cut. Fake a sensational "oppressed victim" story that gets you instant national attention, sympathy and cash. People are dumb and fall for it EVERY time. Expect these scams to get worse and more elaborate as people become ever more desperate for their 15 mins.

Gays need to learn to start carrying a gun in their cars (or at the very least a switchblade 🔪) to protect yourselves. How many acts of violence have to happen before you wake the fuck up? You need to be ready to defend yourselves against sick fucks like this. I always carry a switchblade with me just in case.
I’m just so sick of seeing gays hurt and wish they’d fight back for once.

Most of them don’t fall down and curl up in the fetal position. Most of them are either overpowered, outnumbered or both.
