‘Communists live in a make-believe world,’ Jesse Kelly asserts
Prominent conservative commentator Jesse Kelly, known for his fiery rhetoric, drew a controversial parallel in his tweet.
He said, “Biden saying gay people are getting thrown out of restaurants proves a point I’ve made many times: You cannot negotiate or reason with the communist because the simple truth is most of them live entirely in a world of make-believe. You can’t leave reality to work with someone.”
Discrimination shifts towards Christians, unvaccinated
Kelly presented an alternative view, suggesting that it’s not gay individuals who face discrimination but Christians and the unvaccinated.
“PRO TIP: People in America aren’t getting thrown out of restaurants for being gay. But in just the last couple years, they HAVE been thrown out for being Christian. And they have been thrown out for being unvaccinated.”
