The Gaystapo isn’t too happy about it, that’s what.
According to this, two gay dudes who support Donald Trump – Dewey Lainhart and Cody Moore from Cincinnati – have been the targets of harassment from the gay community. They both talked to a Wall Street Journal reporter at a Trump rally, who posted a video of the interview –
Sounds like they know what they want in a candidate, don’t they?
They didn’t talk about the harassment they’ve gotten in the video, but they did in the article that went with it –
The men told The Journal that they had since received hundreds of hateful messages and death threats from gay people warning them not to leave their house or go to any gay clubs.
“The gay community is not a very supportive group,” Mr. Moore said.
Mr. Lainhart said he carries a gun and remained vigilant in the wake of the backlash.
And the story doesn’t stop there. After the video was posted, commenters on Facebook left all kinds of nasty remarks about how these two are disloyal to the LGBT movement and how they’re terrible people for supporting Trump –
Charming. For being so tolerant, LGBT folks are just as capable of intolerance and hate as anyone else.
I get the feeling that Dewey and Cody are sick of the Democrats expecting them to show up and vote for the hand-picked Democrat candidate like good little minions. Maybe they’re tired of being taken advantage of and being used like political props, while getting nothing of substance in return. Sure, same-sex marriage is legal in the United States, but it doesn’t sound like that’s their main concern. They’d rather have jobs and opportunities for success – things that the Democrats seem to be utterly unable to give them. Social issues don’t mean jack crap if you don’t have a way to live you day-to-day life.
That’s the problem with the Democrats’ pandering (and the Republicans have been veering into that realm as well – as stupid as it is) – they treat these demographics like one-issue-voters. They give gays marriage equality, give Hispanics amnesty, give black people welfare, give the elderly Medicare, give women abortion – they just go down the checklist and think they’ll be in power for the next century or so.
Too bad Actual People aren’t one-issue-voters. It doesn’t matter what color your skin is, who you sleep with, what’s between your legs – you still want a decent job, lower taxes, a way to provide for yourself and your family, and the government to stop bugging the snot out of you every time you take a breath.
I always hoped that the demographic-pandering BS would come back to bite Democrats in the butt. And it might actually be happening now.
