Log Cabin Spox Celebrates Anti-LGBTQ Uganda Law

First, a reminder about yesterday’s news:

Uganda’s parliament on Tuesday passed a law that criminalises identifying as LGBTQ, handing authorities broad powers to target Ugandans who already face legal discrimination and mob violence.

More than 30 African countries, including Uganda, already ban same-sex relations. The new law appears to be the first to outlaw merely identifying as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ), according to rights group Human Rights Watch.

Supporters of the new law say it is needed to punish a broader array of LGBTQ activities, which they say threaten traditional values in the conservative and religious East African nation.

As you can see below, Log Cabin Republicans “ambassador” Isabella Moody, who last appeared here when she declared that “faggotry makes me vomit,” thinks the new Uganda law is “based.” From Dictionary.com:

Based has been appropriated by the alt-right online as a general term of praise, as if “un-woke.” The re-invented based, as a signal of power and swagger, was picked up by the alt-right/white nationalist community online in the 2010s. Since then, referring to alt-right or right-wing conservative figures as based has become a sign of approval in online social-media forums like the pro-Trump subreddit, r/The_Donald.
