Mainstream media hysteria over Donald Trump’s election have promised nothing short of pogroms for anyone who isn’t white, Christian and male. And the group that they seem to think is most in danger is the LGBT community.
“Donald Trump’s victory in the U.S. presidential election this week has left many lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) advocates fearing a backlash against their community,” an NBC News article on the issue said.
They then asked a group of people in the LGBT community — curiously excluding any lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender conservatives, as if they somehow didn’t exist — to give similarly fear-inducing comments on the matter.
“Donald Trump sits atop the most hateful Republican platform in history, one that sorely endangers the most fundamental American values of fairness and equality for all,” Sarah Kate Ellis, president and CEO of GLAAD, told NBC.
Wow, it sounds like this is a bad guy. He certainly must have said some awful things about the gay community, right?
Well, here’s what he said during his acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention in July of this year, just after an Islamic terror attack in a gay nightclub killed 49 people.
“As president, I will do everything in my power to protect LGBTQ citizens from the violence and oppression of a hateful foreign ideology,” Trump told the crowd to thunderous applause. “And, I have to say, as a Republican, it is so nice to hear you cheering for what I just said.”

Here’s how the media reports it, though: Trump is Islamophobic for wanting to curb Islamic terrorism that targets those in the LGBT community. Meanwhile, he’s still the bigot against the LGBT community, because, like, Republicans just hate everything, you know?
