An editor at an LGBT magazine defended an opinion piece published Monday suggesting that rapper Nipsey Hussle deserved to die for what it perceived to be attacks against the LGBT Community.
“Black LGBTQ+ People Deserve to Feel How They Want About Nipsey Hussle,” said the cryptic headline by Raquel Willis, Out Magazine’s executive editor.
Hussle was shot in the face in an apparent gang-land style murder. Here’s how many in LGBT land responded:
Maybe don’t be a homophobic POS while alive?

Willis’s headline affords such broad leeway to her gay compatriots on how they “deserve to feel” in the wake of Hussle’s violent death, leading many to believe that either Hussle suffered a relatively pedestrian fate such as cancer or that Hussle had somehow engaged in a public, prolonged, and notable battle against LGBTQ rights.
It is precisely for the reason that many of Willis’s homosexual and genderqueer comrades were expressing their hatred and anger at Hussle after his death that Willis had to afford them this broad leeway leeway.
Neither of Willis’s implications is true. Hussle’s demise was a violent one.
Willis’s explains her callousness as follows:
So when [sic] an instance like this, a person who has a recent history of speaking ill about LGBTQ+ people and never fully engaged with evolving on the issue (at least publicly) is being honored, many of us can’t help to side-eye.
The thrust of Willis’ piece was that while Hussle was revered by many in the black community for his dedication to public service – indeed he was scheduled to meet Tuesday with the Los Angeles Police Department to discuss gang violence – that one Tweet and one Instagram proved him to be homophobic, and thus, he did not deserve to be mourned by homosexuals, and interpreted broadly, deserved to die.
“When a notable person dies, there’s a way that the general public analyzes everything that the person ever did, for better or worse. However, there are harmful actions or behaviors that are seen as more or less an indictment on the individual as a whole,” Willis said in the piece.
In Hussle’s case, his indicting and “harmful action” was openly discussing the gay agenda.
“None of us should be forced or even expected to mourn people who have operated as our oppressor,” she continued.
Willis thinly veiled her suggestion that Hussle deserved his death by saying that, in her eyes, it is unacceptable to “make light of another person’s passing.”
Hussle was not exactly an ardent anti-LGBT activist. He once had a dust up on the internet about whether a gay agenda existed.
“Demonstration speaks louder than Conversation. They gone feed us every image of our men and boys but this one. No hyper violent…No homo sexual…No abandoners….JUS STRONG BLAC MEN AND YOUNG Men. RESPECT TO MY BIG HOMIE @bigu1 for Leading with love and intelligence. GOD IS WITH US WHO CAN GO AGAINST US.” the Instagram post said.
When questioned on Twitter by Black Lives Matter activist Deray McKesson, Hussle responded with the following Tweet:
“I don’t look down on gay people I love all Gods children foreal. I take issue with the larger agenda.and I’m VERY WELL INFORMED contrary to my appearance. And my conclusion is there’s AN AGENDA…we can go fact for fact and get u some understanding if you’d like. If not God bless,” he said.

The mere suggestion that a gay “agenda” exists seems to have ticked Willis off, despite the fact that the existence of the big gay hate agenda is undeniable.
It’s the same agenda that led Mother England to give half a million dollars to an organization promoting transgenderism in children. It’s the one that labels ordinary conservatives “bigots” if they don’t think transgender children should be dancing for dollars at nightclubs. It’s the one that gave a teacher an award after a five-year-old “transitioned” in her class, and made it appropriate to assign six-year-olds the task of writing gay love letters to each other.
Simply acknowledging the existence of an LGBT agenda was Hussle’s mortal sin in Willis’s eyes.
Hussle’s other sin was not apologizing enough when joined the radio show “The Breakfast Club” and was asked about the internet dust up, during which he said the media took his comments out of context.
“If anyone was looking for a full apology or a grander display of contrition, you never really got one from Hussle. And that’s the point, a number of LGBTQ+ people and our supporters are trying to make,” she said of Hussle’s appearance on the show.
Willis openly says two of Hussle’s supposed sins incite the outrage expressed by homosexuals toward Hussle: 1) being a non-LGBTQ person and “never fully engag[ing] with [or] evolving on the issue [of LGBTQ-ism]” and 2) that Hussle’s “vision of a better community seemingly didn’t include all Black people, particularly Black LGBTQ+ people.”
When asked whether Hussle deserved to die for not sharing the same politics as Willis, she dodged. She did not respond in the negative.
“You could just read the piece,” she told me. “That’s an option.”
But she was quick to distance her opinion from that of the magazine as a whole.
“Also, it’s an op-ed, from me – a singular person not on behalf of the mag,” she said.

CANCELLED: Conservative Gatekeeper Caleb Hull Has Racial Slur Laden Tweets Exposed After Joining Leftist Witch Hunts Against ‘America First’ Movement
Some poetic justice for Mr. Hull.
Faux-conservative gatekeeper Caleb Hull, who has attacked many prominent ‘America First’ voices for not being sufficiently politically correct, is now under attack from the same leftists who he has cheered on in the past.
Jared Holt of Right Wing Watch exposed Hull’s history of making offensive comments on social media. Hull worked for Turning Point USA before becoming a digital communications strategist and marketing his services to pro-Trump Republicans.
“In 2014, Hull made anti-Black, anti-Muslim, and anti-LGBTQ remarks on a Twitter account that RWW determined belonged to Hull by reviewing archives from the account and comparing them to still-active posts on accounts where Hull uses his real name. The account, with the handle @FlwTV, was deleted from Twitter shortly after RWW started reaching out to Hull’s industry colleagues,” Holt wrote.
“Hull casually deployed the n-word on his @FlwTV Twitter account on several occasions and shared jokes in which the slur was the punchline. In one instance, he remarked that he was banned from a streamer’s chat room after he “spammed” the n-word “17 times.” Hull promoted racist tropes about Black people, specifically those involving watermelon and fried chicken, Black children without fathers, and slaves picking cotton,” he added.
While Holt’s hit pieces are meant to enforce cancel culture on the Right and typically abhorrent, Hull’s history of joining leftist witch hunts against conservative voices guilty of mob-imposed wrongthink has made these circumstances particularly ironic.
Hull once went after Kaitlin Bennett of Liberty Hangout after she was attacked by a mob of campus leftists, inferring that Bennett was asking for it due to her history of confrontational political activism.
“When you knowingly enter an area with hundreds of people who you know hate your guts that will confront you, going in without alerting police or having protection isn’t just “exercising your right to free speech.” It’s just plain old stupid and a call for attention,” Hull wrote in his tweet blaming the victim.
“Nothing unites America quite like hating Kaitlin Bennett,” he wrote in a subsequent tweet.
When @KaitMarieox was assaulted and rioted against by hundreds of students, @calebjhull blamed her for it and said she should expect violence. Today he's crying about how he's being canceled. Sorry but you shouldn't have joined Antifa if you didn't want to play by their rules! pic.twitter.com/sBsoNxV1uM

Hull also attacked right-wing pundit Michelle Malkin, calling her an anti-Semite for refusing to disavow paleoconservative video blogger Nick Fuentes.
Time and time again, mainstream conservatives think the cancel culture mob they feed will never eat them too. They think they can fend it off with condemnations of those farther right. But one day, it'll come for them too. Welcome to the club, Caleb Hull! pic.twitter.com/VFJPSiRW1A

The cancelling of Hull by the social justice mob should teach a lesson to every conservative who believes they are untouchable because they serve Conservative Inc. and try to police their speech to appease the Left. Sooner or later, the mob will come for your scalp as well.
