Ever since he won the GOP nomination, LBGTQ protesters have been burning up the internet, rioting, protesting, starting fights and assaulting otherwise peaceful citizens as they march in the streets in protest of Donald Trump. Since the spring of last year, they’ve been outside his rallies, waving signs and banners and haven’t stopped to this day.
Asked what they’re afraid of, what they’re protesting or just exactly what the big deal is, the common refrain is something like: “Trump is Hitler! He’s going to roll gay rights back to the Stone Age!! He’s a bigot who’s going to round up all gays, Hispanics, Muslims and anyone else who isn’t a white male and send them,…I,…I dunno,….someplace! Well screw that!!! We’re here to say NO to fascism!!”
You’ve seen enough of these interviews to know what we’re talking about and despite the fact that few of these people can even tell the interviewer what fascism is, they’ve been out there – rain or shine. Yet as usual, the fanaticism and the reality are worlds apart.
The Washington Examiner is reporting this morning that the White House has released a statement running 180 degrees contrary to what the radical left crazies in the streets have been screaming.
Turns out Trump isn’t bound and determined to roll back the Obama-era LBGT federal protections at all, instead he’s leaving them in place. Apparently Trump isn’t going to send his Gestapo forces out to find, detain and torture gays.
“President Donald J. Trump is determined to protect the rights of all Americans, including the LGBTQ community. President Trump continues to be respectful and supportive of LGBTQ rights, just as he was throughout the election,” the White House announced in a statement.
“The President is proud to have been the first ever GOP nominee to mention the LGBTQ community in his nomination acceptance speech, pledging then to protect the community from violence and oppression,” it said.”
So despite all the howling from the left and picketing in the streets they’ve once again been exposed as doing little more than chasing boogeymen. Their belief and insistence that Trump and all Republicans don’t want the same rights for minority groups has again been debunked. Will this move be enough to cause them to begin examining reality rather than their own beliefs about it? Not likely.
