Matthew Shepard’s Murder: You Can’t Handle Truth


by Benny Huang

Fresh off the presses this week is a book that liberals already hate. Stephen Jimenez’s “The Book of Matt: Hidden Truths About the Murder of Matthew Shepard” reexamines the 1998 murder of a homosexual college student in Laramie, Wyoming, and concludes that the media narrative simply doesn’t square with reality.

Shepard was indeed the victim of a very brutal murder but it was never about gay-bashing. It was about crystal meth. The killer and his accomplice were not strangers to Shepard, as had been previously reported. They had known each other prior to that night, done drugs together, and one of them had even had sexual relations with Shepard.

As expected, the thesis isn’t going over well with the pink triangle crowd. They will not however, be able to silence Jimenez with accusations of “homophobia.” He is an openly homosexual journalist.

Jimenez’s journey began in the year 2000 when he travelled to Wyoming intending to write a screenplay about the murder. The picture he planned to paint matched the threadbare media narrative exactly because it was all he knew. He soon discovered that most of what he believed about case was a fiction.

It is nearly impossible to overestimate the importance of Matthew Shepard’s martyrdom to the homosexual movement. If he hadn’t existed, they would have had to have invented him. They did invent him, in a manner of speaking. The story of his life and death bares no resemblance to what actually happened.
