Vile: Leftists Savagely Attack Gays Daring To Support Trump

Share

Are you gay? Do you support President Donald Trump?

Well, at least one person thinks that “you should combust.” I’m sure they’re not the only one.

According to TheBlaze, that sort of invective was prompted by a shirt being sold by the Trump campaign’s official website. The tee is adorned with the rainbow flag and the words “LGBTQ for Trump.”

“Show your pride and your support for Trump with this exclusive equality tee,” the description for the $24 piece of swag reads.

It seemed to get people’s attention right before Pride Month starts in June. So, prepare for a meltdown in three, two, one…

This was the reaction from BuzzFeed News’ David Mack. It wasn’t unique:

Do you think that the LGBT left went too far here?

In fairness, I’m pretty sure someone wearing this T-shirt wouldn’t want to date you either.

This was actually a common sentiment, as if LGBT Republicans would somehow be dying to get into a relationship with someone who has absolute contempt for LGBT Republicans.

The invective continued unabated:

Other responses catalogued by TheBlaze: “If anyone dares put on that ‘LGBTQ for Trump’ shirt, you should combust,” “Don’t wear one of these ironically, unless you’ve got some sort of fetish for getting your toes run over,” “If you bought that LGBTQ for Trump shirt do not attend pride this year” and “You’ve got to be f—ing kidding me.”

That last one could theoretically be taken as a bit of a comment on the flip-out over this shirt, but sadly that doesn’t seem to be the case.

Yes, the Trump administration has rolled back some Obama-era regulations for LGBT individuals, although one could reasonably argue those protections — particularly on transgender service in the military and gender identity initiatives in public schools — went too far. The administration has also taken a much stronger stand against anti-LGBT laws abroad.

And, as the president of the Log Cabin Republicans-DC pointed out, there are LGBT Republicans out there — as much as they’re perceived as an oddity.

“I think it’s a wonderful step,” Adam Savit told The Daily Caller regarding the shirts. “It reflects the fact there is real grassroots support for Trump among some segments of the LGBTQ community.”

But for the LGBT left, it’s about policing who can even call themselves LGBT. Part of one’s identity, it seems, must be political. And if that identity doesn’t sit right with the left, well, prepare to combust.
