VIRGINIA: Homocon Anti-Muslim Leader Granted “Gays For Trump” Festival Booth At Hampton Roads Pride

Gay RVA reports:

Hampton Roads Pride’s estimated 30,000 guests to their annual LGBTQ pride festival this weekend will be greeted by a booth from a group of gay folks who support President Trump. The group in question, Gays for Trump, was largely spearheaded by a 757 local, Scott Presler, who worked for the Trump campaign under gubernatorial failure and Confederate Flag fetishist Corey Stewart until they led a protest at the Republican National Committee headquarters in DC prompting Trump to fire him. Presler most recently spoke at and organized an anti-Muslim rally at Virginia Beach’s Mt. Trashmore earlier this month.

Presler’s name is listed on an Eventbright listing for the Gays for Trump event at HR Pride this weekend. A statement sent to GayRVA from Michael Berlucchi, HR Pride’s Board President, said Gays for Trump submitted an application and was approved “in accordance with our standard polices and procedures.” “Hampton Roads Pride has a longstanding practice of welcoming many different political and community organizations to PrideFest,” read the statement. “We value our nation’s freedoms and tradition of protecting speech and the rights of individuals and organizations to express ideas.”

Presler is a main organizer for the extremist group ACT For America, which held dozens of anti-Muslim rallies across the country last weekend. The SPLC describes ACT For America as “the largest grassroots anti-Muslim group in the country.”

Presler last appeared on JMG when he canceled an anti-Muslim rally in Portland, Oregon after he accused the mayor of having endangered his group by denouncing the event.

NOTE: Presler’s pro-Trump group is separate from the group that last week was denied participation in Charlotte Pride.

    Do you think he constantly thinks about meth and dick like Chadwick Moore claims all gays do?

    • JoeMyGod

      Moore also spoke at the anti-Muslim rally in NYC: http://bigleaguepolitics.com/marches-sharia-law-take-place-nationwide-june/

        Because when you’re “suddenly” conservative it’s what you do.

        • Phaius

          I just realized… Chad is a good example of radicalization in Trump’s America.

          • gothambear

            Chad has really gone off the deep end – just bonkers. It’s one thing to claim persecution for being a spontaneous conservative (!) but his crazy ranting now is beyond the pale. It really does appear self-hating.

          • Phaius

            I honestly think he’s having some kind of break, mentally. It reminds me of what happened with Lucian Piane who had at once been a big lefty and then suddenly started decrying the “hypocrisy of the left” and moved speedily over to the right (and then into conspiracy theory land).

      • gothambear

        I think he is an idiot but like it or not he is part of the community and I’m not a fan of suppressing people from expressing their views, idiotic or not. As long as he doesn’t incite violence or commit a violent act he can prattle away and embarrass himself all he wants.

    • another_steve

      If so, he might get some meth but has no chance with dick.

    • The only time I think about meth is when I’m at Walmart and see people’s teeth.

  • Tawreos

    I am pretty sure that being dumbasses ties his group to the group trying to get into Charlotte Pride

    • Reality.Bites

      “Group” is a misnomer. That one in Charlotte consists of one asshole and his criminal husband.

  • Boreal

    Why would any pride group give fuckups like these space at an event? He is most certainly NOT PROUD to be gay. He supports groups and causes that oppose his very existence and rights as well as those of the other participants. This everyone gets to participate exercise in bullshit just gives credence to these worthless haters.

    • Kissmyassparagus

      He opposes Islam, a doctrine that calls for the execution of gays. Just sayin

      • Boreal

        I see you are using the tired old ‘but the muslims argument.’ So which Muslim group in the US funds anti-gay initiatives that seek to deprive gay people of their rights?

        I also see your new trolling account, created today, has exactly one comment.

        • Kissmyassparagus

          Actually, while I read JMG for years it is your comment that pushed me to finally sign up with Disqus. No trolling here.

          As for the rest, you don’t seem to understand the difference between criticizing a doctrine (Islam) and criticizing people (Muslims). I never mentioned Muslims. You’re the one who brought it up. I talked about ISLAM.
          Any idea (religion) must be scrutinized, especially the bad ones.
          Just fyi, I am a liberal, married homo who is pro-choice and for legalizing drugs.
          So no, you won’t be able to push me into the pro-Trumper camp.

          • Boreal

            The adherents of Islam are Muslims. The people are not called muslims unless they are adherents of Islam. Your statement is nonsensical.

          • Kissmyassparagus

            You seem a bit thick. Islam is an idea. Muslims are people. If you don’t see the difference then I can’t help you.

          • Boreal

            Muslims are adherents to Islam you idiot, they are not an ethnicity. How fucking dumb are you?

          • Kissmyassparagus

            “He opposes Islam, a doctrine that calls for the execution of gays. Just sayin”
            Read this very slowly.
            Now, Islam, more specifically sharia, calls for the execution of homosexuals. That is the doctrine.
            Muslims are people who will completely or partially or not at all subscribe to this belief. (They cherry-pick just like the xtians do)
            While I am opposed to the doctrine, I am not anti-Muslim. I judge people by their actions, as individuals and not as a group.
            I can’t make it any clearer than this. Sorry. Hope you get it.

          • Boreal

            You dumb fuck. I did read it. You are an idiot. You can’t make anything clear because you have no fucking idea of what you are talking about. Again I’ll ask and for the last time which Muslim group funds anti gay initiatives in the US? If you can’t answer, you are blocked and irrelevant.

          • Kissmyassparagus

            Sweetie, go right ahead and block me. Your insults are your last resort and show that you don’t understand the topic. Show me any country where Islam is the predominant religion and tell me what the rights of gays are. I don’t want this to happen in the west. That’s all.

          • Boreal

            Still waiting for a response. Any Islam-majority country that is a champion for gay rights? No? Nothing?

          • Todd20036

            Still waiting for a response. Any Christian theocracy that is a champion for gay rights? No? Nothing?

          • Michael Nosal

            And where is there a Christianity-majority country that is a champion for gay rights?

            I have yet to see one.

            The piece of trash that is heading this booth is full of hatred. He was at the oceanfront in Virginia Beach last year with cardbord cutouts of Clinton in handcuffs and spouting his hatred towards her. Calling her a crook and a liar and talking about her involvement with the Saudis and the money the donated to her foundation.

            Yet, here we have the Saudis doing the same with the Trumps, and they got a weapons deal out of it and not a peep.

            That is what we call a hypocrite. This man thrives on the drama he can inflict around hum and nothing more.

          • Kissmyassparagus

            Let’s compare, for example, Italy (where the pope resides) and Bangladesh or Pakistan: No one will throw you off a roof, stone you or put you in jail for being gay in Italy. Truth is, Italy has civil partnerships.
            Besides, I didn’t endorse this guy’s views. I merely said that this guy opposes sharia (which calls for the execution of us) when Boreal said that this guy supports the Right which wants to deny us our rights.
            Sharia: death/jail
            Far Right: no cake/no marriage

          • Boreal

            Which Muslim groups in the US fund anti gay legislation lobbying? I see you couldn’t answer that. I can name the xtian ones off the top of my head without even trying: FOF, FRC, NOM, AFA, FRI, Liberty Counsel. You are a failed troll.

            https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/00a7507924a24f58bec8ec8c92b79849374ffcebc54d0e47dcb96cb90da66e41.gif

          • Kissmyassparagus

            Wow. What is it like to live in the leftist bubble?
            I know, facts can be uncomfortable but just because you ignore them they don’t go away.
            Read this article posted by the left-leaning Guardian about a recent survey done in the UK and then substitute “Muslims” for any other religion and see if you would get the same results in a survey:
            https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2016/apr/11/british-muslims-strong-sense-of-belonging-poll-homosexuality-sharia-law

            “However, when asked to what extent they agreed or disagreed that homosexuality should be legal in Britain, 18% said they agreed and 52% said they disagreed, compared with 5% among the public at large who disagreed.”

            And no, I’m not trolling but it seems like that anyone dares to disagree with the leftist narrative must be a Trump-loving, right wing, racist, nazi troll. How sad. Some people just like to exchange views in a civil manner without name-calling but the idea of free speech seems lost on you.

          • Rebecca Gardner

            You win the stupidest motherfucker of all time award. We get the occasional troll here, but you are so stupid that you cannot even be taught.

            Well, they do run into the smartest group of people on the internet. Someone with an IQ of 50 is just not going to survive in a room full of triple digit IQs. Sadly, they still think we’re the dumb ones because we don’t understand their stupidity.

          • PickyPecker
          • Kissmyassparagus

            Thanks for the insults but who was talking about ethnicity?
            Muslims are the same as Christians: Following to some degree an idea or a belief system.
            The doctrine (eg: Islam, Christianity, Judaism, etc) is an idea and can/should/must be criticized.
            This has nothing to do with ethnicity or bigotry. It’s simply questioning a set of beliefs.
            The people who follow this belief should be judged as individuals and by their actions and not as a whole.

          • Rebecca Gardner

            Muslim is not a race it is a person who practices Islam, just like Baptist is not a race it is a person who practices Christianity, just like Hasidim is not a race it is a person who practices Judaism. Finally, all worship the exact same God.

            Please tell me you really are not the fucking stupid and you are just trying to be funny.

          • Kissmyassparagus

            Why would you bring “race” into this.
            Who said anything about race?
            Islam is a belief.
            Muslims are followers.
            Not all followers endorse everything of that belief in its entirety.
            Criticism of Islam = ok
            Criticism of Christianity = ok
            Judging ALL Muslims as the same = anti-Muslim bigotry = not ok
            Judging ALL Christians as the same = anti-Christian bigotry = not ok
            Is this really that hard?

          • Todd20036

            Christianity is an idea. Christians are people. If you don’t see the difference then I can’t help you

          • Kissmyassparagus

            Ummmm Dopey popey said: Who am I to judge?
            Gays in, eg: Italy are doing just fine.
            Gays in, eg: Saudi Arabia are being thrown off the roof

          • Kissmyassparagus

            Yes? I criticize Christianity the same way I criticize Islam. They are both sets of ideas that must be scrutinized, examined, criticized.
            Muslims, like Christians or followers of any other religion or faith, are human beings that I judge as individuals, not as a group.
            While I detest a bad idea, I can respect a person following that idea if that person does not infringe on other’s rights or does want to harm someone.
            In short: I hate cancer, I don’t hate people who have it.

      • shivadog

        I would guess he supports Christianity, a doctrine that calls for the execution of gays.

          I’m an atheist you fool. Any other questions?

          • Todd20036

            Atheists tend to believe in science. Not conspiracy theories.

            Also, they don’t pit one religion against another.

            Put another way, I call bullshit.

          • Kissmyassparagus

            I TRUST in science. No need to believe in it. Facts are facts. I’m not pitting anything against anything.

          • Kissmyassparagus

            Wrong. Atheists don’t “believe” in science. We TRUST in science. Science relies on proven facts which are always open to scrutiny. No belief or blind faith needed.
            Also, I am not pitting anything against anything else. I was pointing out that not all religions are the same. Christianity has been reformed. Islam hasn’t.

    Why should someone who aligns himself with folks that want to keep us as second class citizens be allowed at a celebration of LGBT rights?

    • another_steve

      Because, I guess, we must embrace the self-loathers among us. It is a kind of mental impairment, after all — and we must not discriminate against those who are impaired.

      (or something)

      • Silver Badger

        Yeah right. We need to tolerate those who advocate imprisonment of death for gay people too. Not.

    • Abe

      Why did you vote for a president who was against gay marriage in 2008?

      • Ninja0980

        For the Supreme Court and to get Republicans out of the White House, that’s why.

        • Abe

          So there are good reasons to vote for someone who wants to keep us as second class citizens then?

          • Jonathan Smith
          • Boreal

            Big time.

          • Ninja0980

            He changed unlike the Republicans who still wish to keep us as second class citizens.

          • Todd20036

            Or just kill us outright

          • Todd20036

            Except Obama didn’t want to enshrine into the Constitution that we are second class citizens.

            Except that Obama didn’t want to keep DADT in place.

            Except that Obama didn’t want to prevent gays from adopting children.

            Except that Obama advocated for gay people during his campaign.

            In 2008.

          • Rob

            Except that none of those are the reasons Ninja0980 gave for voting for Obama. They said the Supreme Court and keeping republicans out of the White House. Abe was responding to the answer given. It’s Ninja0980 who you need to remind of the good reasons we had to vote for Obama.

          • I don’t remember if I was frequenting JMG back then or still stuck on the Towleroad, but I do remember way too many queens coming down hard on Obama for not making LGBT issues the focal point of his first 100 days and or later screaming about how Obama “evolved” way too late for their delicate sensibilities.

          • Paula

            Perdue, is that you?

        • Rob

          And yet we blame evangelicals for voting for Trump, but they used that same exact excuse. (I voted for Obama because he was the most qualified candidate and I supported his positions. And John McCain proved he was senile by elevating Palin. Not that I would have voted for him anyway, but yeah, Palin.).

      • Reality.Bites

        To find out which right-wing trollbots to block immediately.

      • barrixines

That was a factor in me being undecided in 2007-2008 as to whom I would support for the nominee. It was McCain with the anti-gay Baptist preacher (odd that they were Southern Baptist since Cindy’s millions are from alcohol distribution) who scrubbed all sermon clips from the internet before the campaign.

        The again why would anyone vote for a thin skinned, habitual liar with a horrible combover and the vocabulary of an 8 year old? One of those mysteries of life, I guess.

      • Because both candidates were against marriage but Obama was for workplace nondiscrimination and good on many other issues. Marriage is not and never was the most important gay rights issues. If you don’t know that you are probably not gay.

        Also, Obama was for marriage equality by 2012. Neither McCain nor Romney is for marriage equality NOW. I made the right choice.

      • Raisinhead

        As opposed to voting for an alternative GOP candidate who supported equal rights? There wasn’t one. False analogy.

    • Rob

      Is there some sort of litmus test of ideas that one must pass to be gay? I thought it was about being attracted to the same sex. When you pass a litmus test for him, what are you going to do when others pass one against you for what they find unacceptable to you? I’m for inclusion of gay people of varying political ideology. Not to mention that there were quite a few progressive gays who were against marriage equality because it was a heteronormative ideaology based on patriarchy. But we let them in, despite the fact that they stood up against our equality. I don’t share his opinion, and I’m not sure where we could really draw a line. If they are gay it’s as much their event as anyone else’s.

      • Raisinhead

        It’s not about permitting differing views. It’s about rejecting Trump and everything he stands for, including the appointment of judges with homophobic record, it’s about Pence and the other religious extremists in the administration.

        • Rob

          But not all gay people reject Trump. That’s the point. Not all gay people have the same political ideology, and if the event is really Pride in being gay, then ideological tests are not appropriate. With the exception of militia groups, I believe the only criteria is if your gay or not. When I went to my first Pride, in the early 80’s, it was about being who we were, telling people we can be gay, we can be who we are, and we don’t need anyone’s approval to be so. Feels like now it’s somehow only designed for one particular political belief, and not for all gay people. I guess as we gained rights in society we become more like that society as a whole. Lots of the groups we had in those early marches wouldn’t be allowed in them today because they’d be too far left and fringey. Remember, some on the far left didn’t want marriage equality either, or for our rights to be enshrined in such a manner that we had assimilated to the heteronormative society. It will be interesting to see who makes it into our Pride in November.

      • Michael Nosal

        Nobody has an issue with gay conservatives. It is the ones that tell us they SUPPORT a man that is tryingbto undermine all the rights we have fought for.

        The event is about unity and our freedom to be.

        Trump does not share that sentiment.

        Had they just been “Gay Republicans,” then there would not be such and outcry.

        But no, this man made sure they were called “Gays for Trump”

        It is done for shock value and to create drama and nothing more.

        • Rob

          The argument you put forward doesn’t match reality. The argument looses all credibility when you wrote that had it been gay republicans… There were Gays for Bush, Gays for McCain, Gays for Romney. There has always been a right leaning segment of the community, and before Obama, and the expansion of legal rights under his Presidency, all republicans were against our rights, and against our freedoms, and some against our very existence. Yet we allowed those people to March and to host booths. It’s been an interesting week in regards to Pride events. In D.C. We get the black Trans community being marganilzed to the point they felt the need to protest the Pride Parade and block the route, and now this guy on the other end of the spectrum being allowed to participate, but under protest of others. I’m not sure I see the value of weeding out those we don’t approve of for some false sense of unity. I u derby and the value of standing side by side with other gay people, it’s been an enlightening experience for me over the years. But the celebration is about being GAY. Not about being liberal, or conservative. But the right to be gay as we choose, and a celebration of being gay. I dislike this persons politics, and I admit I’m not aware of who he is on a larger scale, but to me it seems that Pride is starting to be partisan, overtly centrist, removing both left and right for expediency and a false sense of unity. Better to know who these people are, since they still occupy the same places we do when it isn’t Pride.

            When those opinions openly advocate the support of groups who are explicitly anti-LGBT or supportive of governance that is anti-LGBT, then those opinions are deemed invalid because they are not based on rational argument but solely to the detrimental treatment of other citizens.

          • FormerMainer

            “then those opinions are deemed invalid because they are not based on
            rational argument”

            – That is an unfortunate reality. As soon as a gay person supports a conservative, their support is dismissed as irrational. That dismissal without understanding makes communication and understanding impossible.

            “but solely to the detrimental treatment of other
            citizens.”

            – Are you suggesting that LGBT folks who vote conservative do so solely to detriment their fellow citizens?

          • Jean-Marc in Canada

            I am saying that if you support the GOP and their views, then yes, you are a danger to other LGBT citizens. Read the GOP Platform, their animus towards LGBT’s is prevalent. Further, the actions of 45’s administration regarding Trans rights is painfully obvious.

            There comes a point when you have to judge people by the policies and governments they support and the fact remains, if LGBT conservatives can overlook the reality of 45 and the GOP stance, then they should be held to account.

            As to their opinions, I stand by my statement. It is irrational to support a governance that is openly hostile to your very existence. If you can’t see that, nothing I say will convince you and we shall remain at odds.

          • FormerMainer

            “I am saying that if you support the GOP and their views, then yes,

            – Are you speaking generally or only with respect to national elections?

            – I think conservative LGBT folks see it very differently – they vote GOP because they believe the GOP is best for the country, LGBT folks included. They would argue that LGBT folks would be better off under their way, regardless of the abscence of LGBT-specific laws. Really, it comes down to priorities – for LGBT folks to be better off, do they need jobs more or civil rights more? That value judgment is the key divider between the LGBT left and right.

            “There
            comes a point when you have to judge people by the policies and
            governments they support and the fact remains, if LGBT conservatives can

            to account.”

            – As mentioned, my view is that they see more to be gained by voting GOP than there is not lose.

            “As to their opinions, I stand by my statement. It is
            irrational to support a governance that is openly hostile to your very
            existence.”

            – Even if the person thinks that the governance support is best for them? I’m struggling with your idea that it is irrational to vote for someone you think would serve your best interests.

          • Jean-Marc in Canada

            No, you’re arguing that it’s perfectly sane to vote for a party that basically hates your existence.

            As for policies, what policies does the GOP offer that makes things better?

            Cutting programs to help people get ahead while using said cuts to offer billions in tax breaks for the rich? Newsflash, trickle down economics doesn’t work. Billionaires do not create jobs when they get tax cuts.

            Or is the Military spending, of which there is far too much as it is, but hey, let’s spend more on something we don’t need because, you know, our billionaire buddies need the cash.

            Perhaps it’s the let’s fuck people over on healthcare, because again, tax cuts for our buds.

            I know, let’s talk the wall, that’s a fun one. Complete bullshit of course, 45 isn’t even going left a finger to make it happen. Benefit to Americans? ZERO.

            Then there’s the scary bullshit regarding keeping Americans safe, something that will never be done since the majority of violence, crime and terrorism, some 90+% of it, is homegrown and doesn’t even involve Islam or immigrants….but hey, why let facts get in the way of a good sound bite, right? 2nd Amendment ROCKS! /s

            Now, let’s talk about jobs. Under Obama, after a couple of years of getting the house back in order, you saw job increases at a regular rate, much of which carried over until this month, when the employment figures stalled. So tell me, what am I missing? (rhetorical question) The Religious Freedom Bill? Because that will totally be helpful for employment of LGBT’s. Or maybe the reversal of Obama’s EO regarding the protection of LGBT employees working for Gov. contractors…can’t see how that would be deemed a good thing. Or better yet, why not look at the corruption in 45’s and GOP’s foreign policy, yeah, that’s doing wonders for employment opportunities as skilled workers look elsewhere. FYI, we here in Canada just opened up two new Silicon Valley type areas of business and are getting resumes from many in the U.S. to transfer…can you guess why? Here’s another example for you, remember Clean Coal and the saving of 78,000 jobs (which are dwindling anyway due to reduction in coal use) versus the cutting of funding for green energy which currently employs somewhere in the area of 200,000 but won’t grow any further due to 45 deciding fossil fuels are good for the environment. Which leads to the whole climate change issue in which…well, don’t get me started on the stupid that’s causing stateside.

            So, please, tell me, how voting conservative is good for LGBT’s let alone anyone else.

            One other thing, the fact that you made this statement: “…do they need jobs more or civil rights more?” is chilling, on so many levels.

            I may be Canadian, but if conservative queers think that means I don’t know my shit, well, as you say, they get busy all of a sudden.

          • Jean-Marc in Canada

            He came back for more after a day or two. It’s still not going well for him. I made that clear in my last response.

          • ZRAinSWVA

            Jean-Marc: you rock!

          • Jean-Marc in Canada

            Thanks, I do my best to keep sanity front and center.

          • FormerMainer

            “No, you’re arguing that it’s perfectly sane to vote for a party that basically hates your existence.”

            – Not exactly. I’m arguing that it may be perfectly sane to vote for the GOP. It is not perfectly sane to pretend that the GOP hates the existence of LGBT folks.

            “As for policies, what policies does the GOP offer that makes things better?”

            – Generally, those who vote GOP believe that more limited government, less spending and lower taxes will benefit the country or their personal finances in the long term. I thought everyone knew that.

          • Jean-Marc in Canada

            Yet, whenever they’re in power, they do the exact opposite.

            As for everyone knowing that, we do, that’s why we scratch our heads and think, “how stupid are these people to buy this bullshit?”

          • FormerMainer

            I’m not sure its as simple as you make it out to be. Both parties have had their successes and failures in governance, and many (if not most) vote on what is good for them at the time – not necessarily what is good for the whole.

          • Jean-Marc in Canada

            By the way, you clearly haven’t read the GOP platform, because making this statement ” It is not perfectly sane to pretend that the GOP hates the existence of LGBT folks” proves you haven’t. Republicans are a danger to LGBT folks and until they rescind their platform on such matters and prove, actually prove, their not hateful, they will always be seen as such. I mean, have you seen what Republicans have said? Have you seen what Republicans have done? Are you truly so blinded by your desire for cash that you’ll sell you very soul just to get a bit of a tax cut on the backs of others? What a disgusting person you must be, devoid of any understanding or principle. Truly vile.

          • FormerMainer

            A few quick points:

            1. Opposition to equality does not equate to hatred.

            2. The GOP platform does not represent the views of conservatives generally. It is a reflection of the party, not of all conservatives.

            3. My opinion of conservatives depends upon the person. I do not assign the views of a politician in one time zone to my neighbor in a different time zone. People are more than their party.

            4. My desire for cash? Did you mean gay conservatives?

            5. The fact that you view the idea of someone having different priorities from your own as “vile” demonstrates an alarming intolerance for diverse thought.

          • Jean-Marc in Canada

            “Opposition to equality does not equate to hatred.” — tell that to black and brown citizens. Seriously?? You went there? If you oppose the equality of another human being, you are being hateful, spiteful and dare I say, down right evil. How can you be so daft?

            “The GOP platform does not represent the views of conservatives generally. It is a reflection of the party, not of all conservatives.” — if conservatives vote for the party, they vote for the platform. Deflect and scrub all you like, that stain isn’t coming off.

            “My opinion of conservatives depends upon the person. I do not assign the views of a politician in one time zone to my neighbor in a different time zone. People are more than their party.” — that would have more gravitas as a statement if it weren’t for the facts and reality of the situation; and the facts are, republicans and most conservatives are actively trying to pass laws that are racist, are anti-woman and are anti-LGBT. These are verifiable facts, not conjecture. So if you vote for them, you are them.

            “My desire for cash? Did you mean gay conservatives?” — Yes, gay conservatives care more about money, greed and their own indulgences to the exclusion of all other things. Have you not read their Motto? “I’ve got mine, so fuck you” Do keep up. And no, that’s not a joke. Most gay conservatives have lifted not a finger to move LGBT rights forward, in fact, most have gladly sat back while liberals do all the heavy lifting and then swoop in to tut-tut about how awful they (liberals) are.

            “The fact that you view the idea of someone having different priorities from your own as “vile” demonstrates an alarming intolerance for diverse thought.” — Not at all. I find any view whose principle goal is to harm, hinder or in any way undermine others as vile, even repugnant. The problem you’re having is that you really can’t justify or reconcile your arguments so you deflect in the hopes no one will notice. I’m tolerant of differing views, but I don’t sit silently and ignore them when dubious ideas are proffered. You’re labouring under the delusion that any and all views or priorities are equal in their value and validity…they most certainly are not. Someone who advocates for the genocide of a people may have a point of view or priority, but that doesn’t change the fact that it is vile nonetheless.

            Seriously, if you’re going to take someone like me on, you had better learn how to offer both argument and rebuttal with more than just platitudes, because believe me, you’re not winning this debate the way you’re going.

          • FormerMainer

            “If you oppose the equality of another human being, you are being hateful, spiteful and
            dare I say, down right evil. How can you be so daft?”

            – I disagree. It’s more nuanced than you make it out to be. I voted for Obama in 2008. He did not support my equality. In no way do I believe he hated me.

            ” if conservatives
            vote for the party, they vote for the platform.”

            – That is not supported by reality or polling data. It’s merely your convenient opinion.

            “that would have more gravitas as a
            statement if it weren’t for the facts and reality of the situation; ”

            – By facts, do you mean those polls showing conservatives have widely varying views on LGBT equality?

            “the facts are, republicans and most conservatives are actively trying
            to pass laws that are racist, are anti-woman and are anti-LGBT. These
            are verifiable facts, not conjecture. So if you vote for them, you are
            them.”

            – If you really believe that is a fact, I’d love to see you evidence. If you think it’s “verifiable” then go ahead and verify it.

            “Yes, gay conservatives care more about money, greed and their own
            indulgences to the exclusion of all other things.”

            – I hesitate pretending to know what others believe. I fear your bias is distorting your view.

            ” I find any view whose
            principle goal is to harm, hinder or in any way undermine others as
            vile, even repugnant.”

            – Now I’m confused. Who are LGBT conservatives trying to harm?And you think harming others is their principle view?

            “You’re labouring under
            the delusion that any and all views or priorities are equal in their
            value and validity…they most certainly are not.”

            – I’m doing no such thing. Only trying to get you to understand that simply because someone has a different value set than you does not make them evil or vile.

            “Seriously,
            if you’re going to take someone like me on, you had better learn how to
            offer both argument and rebuttal with more than just platitudes,
            because believe me, you’re not winning this debate the way you’re going.”

            – I don’t think we are having a debate. More like an attempt to break through your bias and encouraging you to understand people before judging them.

            What good is having a job if you can be fired from it the next day if your boss finds out you are LGBT?

          • FormerMainer

            Again, comes to value. I would assume that most who vote GOP view that as a low risk or even a non-issue.

      • FormerMainer

        I don’t see it as the same at all.

        Why do you think Gays for Trump hates gay people? They are gay and they are going to pride. Since about 1/8 of gay people voted for Trump and about 1/4 are self-identified conservative,makes sense to have them represented here.

        • Jean-Marc in Canada

          Your logic is flawed. One does not invite those who actively support a government determined to harm your community. That’s akin to asking Jeff Sessions and David Duke to a BLM meeting. It doesn’t work like that. These are Kapos/collaborators, not people worthy of respect. Again, they actively support a party and government who are explicitly anti-LGBT. That’s not rational or logical.

          • FormerMainer

            They support conservative government because they believe conservative government is best for our country. Voting your beliefs and for who you think will do the best job is entirely rational.

          • Jean-Marc in Canada

            Not when that belief/government is openly hostile to your existence.

          • FormerMainer

            They would counter that it is irrational to vote for a party you think would be worse for you and the country, simply because they like you or support civil rights laws for you. Again, a question of values and which is more important to the voter.

            Simply put, the fact that they have different values than you does not make them irrational.

          • Jean-Marc in Canada

            Again, missing the point. If you support values that actively harm a segment of the population, one in which you belong, it is irrational.

          • Karl Dubhe

            He votes his wallet, thinking that money can get him out of every and any troubles. He’s wrong, eventually he’ll learn (the hard way) that money doesn’t really count. Not in the end, an end which all of us will experience.

          • Reality.Bites

            Including Trump

          • I think that his vote is not for his wallet but purely and simply against muslims, and probably (other) brown skinned people too. His fear and hatred trump all other aspects of trumP’s platform, causing him and others like him to be blind to the very real possibility that all the advances we have made in the last 10 years could be rolled back. The same goes for all the other changes trumP is doing or trying to do, they are completely blinkered by the one burning issue that is important to them. In this case it is islam.

          • Karl Dubhe

            No reason it can’t be both.

            But the Homocons that I’ve run into are more greedy than racist. Note, I’m not saying they’re not bigoted, but their hate isn’t as strong as their greed.

            They’re totally fucked up Quislings.

          • canoebum

            If and when Trump ever becomes a Conservative, let us know. As far I can tell, he’s just an deranged asshole, and I don’t want an deranged asshole government.

          • Ken M

            Supporting what he says and supporting his right to say it, are 2 very different things. Tie a BIG bunch of rainbow balloons to his booth. After that..people will just smile as they walk by. His right to free speech can have non violent repressions.

          • Jean-Marc in Canada

            I’m not advocating he be silenced, I’m advocating ignoring or shunning him. He can spew all he likes, but I get to respond or shun him back.

        • Karl Dubhe

          You’re speaking as if Trump is a reasonable human being.

          He’s not. That was obvious by the end of the election campaign. Well, it was obvious to those of us who live in other nations, and more than half of your electorate…

          Trump exists in the moment. A moment that is constantly changing, that’s why he takes two, three or four positions on every issue.

          I think that people voted for Trump because they thought he hates the same people they do.

          What the ‘Gays for Trump’ think about other people is irrelevant. Their actions, by voting for Trump, strongly suggest that they hate other people. I don’t believe they thought at all.

          • FormerMainer

            I’m not sure how that is relevant.

    • Hanwi

      I agree, if the event is held in a public space then everyone who wants to must be allowed to speak.

  • Johnny Wyeknot

    Probably quite a few gay Trump supporters in that area

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    I hope they are shunned….not attacked mind you, that would serve no purpose, just shunned or ignored. You don’t engage a hostile, you contain it, much like a cancer or other pathogen.

  • Mickey Bitsko

    I’m all for freedom of speech, so speak on asshole, but I wouldn’t want to be him this weekend. I also wouldn’t be caught dead wearing those Nordstrom jeans.

    I’m always way too nice after a couple of beers.

    I can already tell he and I are not meant to be friends. My clue is the urge to vomit that I’m feeling on seeing his face, knowing what a discredit he is to our tribe.
