A 2009 Facebook post from Right Wing Watch’s Jared Holt shows anti-gay remarks made by the the now-champion of “progressive” values.
“You are a F-R-E-S-H-M-A-N .. not a ‘freshie’ – shut up, you sound like a queer,” Holt said in the post.
The post has made the rounds in conservative online circles.
Holt calls himself an “investigative reporter” for Right Wing Watch, a project of the uber-left nonprofit People for the American Way. His job essentially boils down to ascribing Naziism and bigotry to prominent right-wing figures and groups.
In public, he appears to be a defender of LGBT rights.
“I don’t enjoy these right-wing figures any more than the rest of y’all, but please do not respond to my stuff with jokes about folks being in the closet, performing oral sex on each other, etc. ‘They’re gay’ isn’t a punchline and that crap is toxic. Be better,” he said in a May Twitter post.
He also cited the Southern Poverty Law Center, which has internal bigotry problems of its own, to deride the American Family Association as “anti-LGBTQ” and a “hate group” when it met with Walmart leaders in April:
But as usual, the holier-than-thou charade does not withstand any semblance of scrutiny.
Holt made the homophobic remark, among other disturbing comments, in a Facebook post deriding the incoming freshman class at his high school.
“Sex doesn’t make you cool and it won’t make upper-class boys think any higher of you,” Holt advised incoming female students. “So don’t go around bragging about it. No one cares and you look like an easy freshman whore. Just leave the slutty things you did in 8th grade, in middle school.”
“You are not cool. Everyone does hate you. You are annoying,” he said.
Holt did not return a comment request.

Minnesota Had Record Numbers of Concealed Carry Licenses Issued in 2020
Red or blue, Americans nationwide are getting strapped.
Gun sales have boomed all across America. And it’s not just the Red states. Blue states like Minnesota have also witnessed an increase in the number of concealed carry permits issued.
According to Valley News Live, over 96,000 permits were issued in 2020, which represented the highest number of permits issued since carry permits became legal in 2003. Furthermore, 2020’s numbers represented a twofold increase from 2019 in the number of permits issued.
Tom Knighton of Bearing Arms noted that roughly “400,000 permits have been issued in total in a state of just over 5.6 million people.”
The Valley News Live piece actually conceded that the increase in permits issued was largely the result of a “ rise in violent crime in the Twin Cities and the civil unrest that followed the death of George Floyd.”
Minneapolis was the epicenter of social unrest after the death of George Floyd in late May 2020. With calls to defund the police and irresponsible political leadership that refused to decisively crack down on crime, Minnesotans began to take matters into their own hands.
Gun owners are ultimately the most effective first responders in times of crisis and overall breakdowns of social order. Minnesota’s gun laws are actually quite strict, which has earned it dismal rankings in Guns & Ammo magazine’s rankings for Best States for Gun Owners (39th place) and Best States for Concealed Carry (37th place). Regardless of the sub-optimal gun policies, Minnesotans still instinctively understand the importance of the right to carry.
2020 was a big year for gun sales and showed that the right to bear arms still has a massive constituency of people that can be targeted and activated for future occasions. Serious Republican campaigns should recognize this trend and make targeting gun owners a major priority throughout their get out the vote programs.
