The narrative was based on lies...?

No H8? -- Bombshell Book: Matthew Shepard Tortured, Murdered by Gay Lover

Almost everything you think you know about the Matthew Shepard narrative is false.

Matthew Shepard was the winsome young homosexual in Laramie, Wyoming who in October 1998 was tortured, killed, and left hanging grotesquely from a fence. He was discovered almost a day later and later died in the hospital from his horrific wounds.
On the night of October 6, Shepard met “two strangers” in the Fireside Lounge in Laramie. The two men offered Shepard a ride home but instead drove him to a remote area, robbed him, beat him with pistols, and left him splayed on a fence.
Cops found the bloody gun along with Shepard’s shoes and wallet in the truck of the two men --- Aaron McKinney and Russell Henderson.
McKinney and Henderson claimed the "gay panic" defense, that they freaked out when Shepard came onto them sexually and killed him in a rage. They made other claims, too, but were convicted and sentenced to life in prison.
Almost immediately Shepard became a secular saint, and his killing became a kind of gay Passion Play where he suffered and died for the cause of homosexuality against the growing homophobia and hatred of gay America.
Indeed, a Mathew Shepard industry grew rapidly with plays and foundations along with state and even national hate crimes legislation named for him. Rock stars wrote songs about him, including Elton John and Melissa Etheridge. Lady Gaga performed John Lennon’s "Imagine" and changed the lyrics to include Shepard.
Thanks to a new book by an award winning gay journalist we now know that much of this narrative turns out to be false, little more than gay hagiography.

Say it isn't so.

Another story from the Left that isn't true?  Well, if there is one thing that you should know about Liberals by now, it is that they lie.  Always.  It's all about agendas based on emotion.  It is all about the end justifying the means.  It always has been.

A lot of people have a lot of time and money invested in the Matthew Shepard myth... 

A lot of people have made a lot of money off of the Matthew Shepard myth.  

Forget about his sexual orientation, his drug use, all of the stories built to create the myth. Strip all of that away and you'll find a young man who was murdered. That is all.

Read the story.
