Dumbest Gay Man On The Internet Fails Yet Again

Earlier today extremist blogger Jim Hoft, widely known in the progressive blogosphere as “the dumbest man on the internet,” came out in a Breitbart column in which he urged gays to “come home to the Republican party.”

This afternoon Hoft gleefully reported the “breaking” news that a group called Phoenix LGBT has endorsed Donald Trump. As evidence of this endorsement Hoft posted a message from a Twitter account that was created yesterday. Not only that, the account’s profile oddly links to the Manchester, UK-based LGBT Foundation. The tweet below has been shared nearly 7000 times since Hoft’s posting.

The (real) Phoenix Pride LGBT Center has been forced to respond.

If things go as usual over on Gateway Pundit, Hoft will either ignore evidence that he’s been taken or he’ll just delete the post entirely. Either way, many thousands of right wingers now believe that an LGBT group has endorsed Donald Trump.

      After last week saying he’d support “traditional marriage.”

    • Get Real

      It is infuriating that he is making it seem like some “foreign Islamist outsider” came in and committed this massacre in Orlando. A “temporary” Muslim ban does not keep out existing Americans terrorists like the idiot who committed this horror yesterday. It is so hard to listen to Trump’s fear mongering. And he is reading from a teleprompter. Gawd he is dull…


    I have to to disconnect from the Internet for a while. Posts like this are just to fucking depressing. LGBT endorsing Trump? Why don’t we just light the fires to the ovens.

      Was working the Hillary booth at Pride a few weeks ago, and a Trump supporter came by to debate a little.
      Surprisingly, not in a bad way. He was respectful, wasn’t trying to gather a crowd or demagogue, didn’t seem to be playing for the (non-existent) cameras, and it was an actual conversation. He just had a few “cards on the table” questions. It became clear pretty quickly how a millennial Californian working at Pride(!) would or could support the “we’ll start by taking away gay marriage, then put a religious requirement on immigration, and then…” guy.
      “Trump doesn’t actually want to [do the thing we’re talking about]. People can say whatever they want about *anyone* (tsk tsk), and people like to make a rich guy look bad.”
      “Trump said, out of his own mouth, on camera, that he’d “strongly consider” appointing judges to reverse Obergefell, and he said he supported traditional marriage.”
      He puts his hands up a little, a sad, resigned “whatcha gonna do?” type things. In no way did felt he had been beaten or disproven. No no, he was confident that we both knew the REAL truth (i.e., Trump 4 marriage +4 AX Trump couldn’t just SAY he os pro-trans pro-equality, cuz, you know, we pro

    Small surprise Trump is the darling of the shouties. They just love anyone who makes them feel right, facts be damned. They don’t care if they’re wrong, because anyone who points out they’re wrong is wrong for making them feel wrong.

            Only the stuff about gays is followed nowadays. So things like the racial purity requirements (10 generations for the children of Lot’s sons/grandsons to be accepted) that outdo the Nazis aren’t followed any more.

        • Christianists use the OT to justify their hatred. They’re as evil in words as the killer was in action. And many christianists are celebrating his actions.

      • grada3784

        OT is followed by all the Abrahamic crowd. The Muslims just believe that Ishmael was the son to be killed, not Isaac.

      The stuffing of animals and building of the Ark were done by 900 year old Noah and his two 100 plus year old sons according to their wholly holey book of sacred silliness.

    Pretty cool. Now Donald Trump’s fans think they have some great accomplishment to boast about.
    Smack downs with evidence are fun and trend well.
    A fake twit account is even funnier.
    That’s two fools…how shameful.
    Also, it’s not going to sway any more LGBT people. No one, imo, is on the fence anymore. You’re either a Donald Trump fan or you’re not.

    Is there a folksie saying for being fooled thrice?

    • religion is insane

      Trump’s suggestion will not solve the problem. This scumbag was born in NY, an us citizen, maybe living few blocks away from trump tower before moving to Florida. Moreover, there are many second generations of Muslim who are us citizen with parents who came here with student visa or working visa. They are not even immigrants.

      trumps positions on many topics regarding the gay community are far to the left of the usual GOP positions. Most of his supporters are too stupid to NOTICE that, but its true. he doesnt think you should have the right to fire someone based on their sexual orientation, he even wanted sexual orientation added to the Civil rights act. Certainly not a liberal, but still no Rick Santorum by any means
