Green Lantern 154 Vol.3's story was based on a distorted case LGBT activists debunked themselves

Judd Winick references the case of Matthew Shepard, whose death was originally blamed on homophobia:

Hmm, I guess he's still going by the mainstream press narrative of the yesteryear, much like some others of his ilk still cling to the PC narrative from Ferguson. I wonder how he feels now after a gay book writer researched the true history, and discovered it wasn't what Winick thought:
...award-winning gay author and journalist Stephen Jimenez spent years reviewing previously sealed case documents and interviewing some 100 people for his tome, “The Book of Matt: Hidden Truths about the Murder of Matthew Shepard,” which is officially being released Tuesday.

The book contends that Shepard’s murder was more likely a crime sparked by a drug deal gone wrong: Shepard was a known meth dealer and was supposed to have taken in a drug shipment worth $10,000 that night. He and McKinney, a 22-year-old bisexual hustler, were both meth users and had sex with each other on previous occasions, and McKinney was desperate to get the drugs or the money, or both.

In short, Shepard’s homosexuality likely played little, if any, role in the crime.

“Have We Got Matthew Shepard All Wrong?” asked a recent article in the Advocate, a popular magazine for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) readers.
Not only was a gay author willing to recognize facts, even some press sources aimed at LGBT members were willing to admit (and certainly ask if) this was apparently all a big PC falsehood narrative, turning a crook into a sainted martyr for the sake of forcing their visions down everyone's throats. I wonder if Winick's sore that his source of "inspiration" for the GL story he wrote wasn't supported by LGBT members in the end, and that his whole one-sided view won't hold up in the future? He's probably never even condemned Muslim homphobia in Islamic regimes, where the real dangers take place, and if he hasn't, that's another reason why he's unqualified for commenting on all these issues.

In a way, it is not surprising that Stephen Jimenez and The Advocate would be willing to reveal the truth about the Matthew Shepard case, while the so-called "main stream" media would not. Time, Newsweek, CNN, MSNBC, and the New York Times would not question the PC party line, because they don't want to be accused of anti-gay bias.

Even if the murder had been motivated by homophobia, it would still be ironic that Shepard, like James Byrd, became a poster child for hate crime legislation. In both cases, the killers were prosecuted and convicted (of murder) under already-existing state law, proving that there was no need for a separate "hate crimes" law.

But facts never get in the way of political correctness. In the Michael Brown case, there are civil rights activists who admit that the shooting was justified, but their propaganda still portrays Brown as a victim and a martyr, because it supports their agenda.

It's all about perpetuation of THE NARRATIVE. The facts be damned.

The Reichstag fire of the sissyboy mafia.

Here's a stupid idea: just bomb Iran and Saudi Arabia (along with a couple other countries on the side just for good measure) back into the stone age or at least into peacefulness, like with Japan in WWII. I find it hard to believe that not one military "genius" hasn't thought up that idea before...
