This story is a bit old (last month), but still worth sharing. Thanks to the man occupying the White House, every good thing done in the last 8 years or longer is undone. The man has no impulse control. Funny, though, how he can do shit like this, but We the People aren’t allowed to express our hatred/strong dislike of him. Hypocrisy is rampant in the 21st century.
Donald Trump has become the first president to address the conference of a recognised anti-LGBT hate group.
Trump addressed the Family Research Council’s Values Voter Summit – classed as a “hate group” – as he told the crowds their anti-LGBT views would no longer be silenced.
This man is from my state and when I heard he got shot, I didn’t care. Still don’t care that his life was on the line. It’s just like him and all the rest of the scum representing this state to not truly appreciate the life of someone who sacrificed theirs for his. He makes me sick and very unhappy to be from the same state. That’s what all GOP assholes are like. They’d speak against a gay man or lesbian even if that person saved their lives.
Four months ago, Republican congressman Steve Scalise had his life saved by a heroic lesbian police officer.
Now, the House Majority Whip is set to speak on stage at a virulently homophobic hate group which has questioned if gay people should be executed.
This is vile and sickening that this group is allowed to exist. I have admitted here before that I do not understand all the intricacies of what a transgender man or woman has felt or even a fraction of what they go through during their lives, but no one has the right to be abusive and attack transgender youth OR adults.
For example, the statement not-so-subtly concludes that all transgender people must be mentally ill. “A person’s belief that he or she is something they are not is, at best, a sign of confused thinking,” the statement reads. “When an otherwise healthy biological boy believes he is a girl, or an otherwise healthy biological girl believes she is a boy, an objective psychological problem exists that lies in the mind not the body, and it should be treated as such.”
I don’t think this is surprising in the least.
In 1965, the same year that President Lyndon Johnson signed what may be the most important civil rights law in American history, an early gay rights group known as the Mattachine Society of Washington asked the United States Civil Service Commission to rescind a policy declaring openly gay individuals “unsuitable for Federal employment.” The Commission’s response to the Mattachine Society reads less like a government document and more like an tract from an anti-gay hate group.
