Liberal Congressman's Gay Son Comes Out...As A Trump-Supporting Republican
Guy Benson, Townhall
Here we have an interesting 'coming out' tale from a young man whose liberal family was "overjoyed" when he told them he is gay. The real trouble began, you see, when he started having impure thoughts. Political thoughts. Adam Levine is the son of a former Democratic Congressman from southern California. And now he's telling the world about how he came to realize that he's a conservative, and how his vote for Donald Trump has made him a pariah within the "open minded" circles in which he's operated for most of his life. Before I start quoting his piece, allow me to disclose that a mutual friend put us in touch, and I helped connect him with the editors of The Federalist, where this essay appears. And it begins rather provocatively:
I am not a sex offender. But a number of my friends no longer have time to see me. Lifelong acquaintances now regard me with fear and distrust. I have been unfriended en masse on social media and excoriated by friends who deign to remain. And I have been singly excluded from social gatherings when the rest of my family was invited. No, I am not a sex offender. I am something even worse than that. I am a Donald Trump supporter.
