    Democrat hate speech targeting deplorables has always worked -- on their own voters. Libeling Republicans as racist, homophobic morons has kept Democrat voters in line. President Trump laughs at their insults, and just gets stronger. Suddenly, one more Trump success. The Democrat line is breaking. Our minorities are breaking free. President Trump’s off the charts achievements on jobs and security are improving the lives of every single Democrat identity voting bloc. A small, but increasingly significant number are noticing. With his MAGA gains on the economy and foreign affairs, President Trump is slowly chipping away at the Democrat Party’s foundations....
  • LGBT activists on Trump's impact: 'We are at war'

    President Donald Trump's relationship with the LGBT community is complicated. During last year's election Trump positioned himself as a pro-LGBT Republican. On the campaign trail Trump promised he'd be "better for the gays" than his 2016 election opponent Hillary Clinton. The president even made history by mentioning LGBT issues during his acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio. But since Trump took office many voices in the community say their rights and livelihood have come under fire. "We are at war," Ken Kidd, an organizer with direct action group Rise and Resist, tells AOL.com. "We are under...

    In a pretty clear message to liberal LGBT activists who seem to think Donald Trump will revoke gay Americans’ rights and start stoning queer people to death in the streets, the White House on Tuesday released a statement Tuesday saying the 45th president will uphold an Obama-era executive order that protects LGBTQ individuals who work for federal contractors from workplace discrimination. Here’s the brief statement in full, as posted on whitehouse.gov:
  • Trump says he's 'fine' with legalization of same-sex marriage

    Donald Trump said he is “fine with” same-sex marriage but offered few specifics about his plans for the first 100 days of his administration during his first television interview since becoming the president-elect. In an extensive interview with CBS’s Leslie Stahl broadcast Sunday night on "60 Minutes," Trump sought to ease the anxieties of LGBTQ Americans that a new conservative Supreme Court majority might overturn last year’s decision legalizing same-sex marriage. Ducking a question about his personal view on the issue, which he dismissed as “irrelevant,” Trump asserted, bluntly, “it’s done.” “These cases have gone to the Supreme Court. They’ve...

    The Miami chapter of LGBTQ Log Cabin Republicans (LCR) announced on Monday its decision to break with the national organization to support GOP nominee Donald Trump for president. "We, as Log Cabin Republicans of Miami, we're Americans first, we're Republicans second, and we happen to be gay or allies of the LGBT community. American national security is our government's first and foremost responsibility, then the economy - those two issues really are paramount to any American," Miami chapter president Vincent Foster told the Washington Examiner on Monday evening.

    Hillary Clinton addressed a crowd of mostly LGBT people at a rally at Wilton Manors, Florida, where she promised further LGBT-friendly reforms. During her speech, Clinton hit upon several hot button issues affecting gay people – including gun reform, following the Orlando gay club attack. “We are going to keep guns from falling into the wrong hands so that what happened in Orlando can never happen again,” the Democrat presidential nominee said. She brought up her rival, Republican nominee Donald Trump, saying he would reverse the progress LGBT rights have made in the US over the last few years. Trump...

    Several “Think Different” posters portraying a rainbow Apple logo with a silhouette of Donald Trump’s face on it have appeared around San Francisco, including near both Twitter and Hillary Clinton’s campaign offices on National Coming Out Day today. The posters resemble colored versions of the black and white prints that were spotted in Hollywood, Los Angeles, last month, and appear to be the doing of the “Art Wing Conspiracy” group, who displayed their poster design at Lucian Wintrich’s pro-Trump art show, #DaddyWillSaveUs, last Saturday.

    During her softball interview with Democratic vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine on Monday, self-avowed Hillary Clinton supporter Ellen DeGeneres bemoaned a supposed double standard against the former Secretary of State: “So Hillary is, it seems – and I've said this before – that she is held to a different standard than Donald Trump is. Would you agree with that?” Kaine predictably agreed: “Yeah, I think that's true.” DeGeneres continued: “...because she’s an amazing woman but there's so much judgment on her charm, her personality, whatever...” Kaine lamented: “Do you smile enough? You know, ‘She doesn't look presidential, does she fellas?’...

    Democratic vice-presidential nominee Tim Kaine, a practicing Catholic, on Saturday described his evolution on same-sex marriage and predicted that his church would change its views as well. “My full, complete, unconditional support for marriage equality is at odds with the current doctrine of the church that I still attend,” Kaine said at a dinner celebrating gay rights. “But I think that’s going to change, too.” Kaine, a senator from Virginia, spoke to a crowd of about 3,700 attending the 20th Annual Human Rights Campaign National Dinner in Washington, at which he also touted reasons why his running mate, presidential nominee...

    Peter Thiel encouraged the GOP to not get distracted by culture wars on stage Thursday night, saluting Donald Trump for not focusing on such things as he made history. The tech billionaire declared to the Republican National Convention that he is "proud to be gay," becoming the first speaker in the party's history to do so from the stage of the Republican National Convention. "Every American has a unique identity. I am proud to be gay," he said to applause, including from the Trump family. "I am proud to be a Republican, but most of all I am proud to...

    Technology investor Peter Thiel implored Republicans from the convention stage on Thursday against waging "culture wars" on lesbian, gay and transgender communities, mere days after the GOP approved a national platform that defines marriage as between “one man and one woman.” Thiel, who himself is gay, stressed that "every American has a unique identity." He said attempts to require transgender Americans to use particular bathrooms is a "distraction from our real problem." And in a first for a GOP convention, the Facebook board member and PayPal co-founder drew attention to his own sexuality: "I am proud to be gay, I...

    Pro-gay Republicans have held Donald Trump up as the most supportive nominee in GOP history, but at this week’s Republican National Convention, their excitement is clashing with the stark realization that their party is still pushing a very different message. While Republicans seek to broaden their appeal ahead of November’s election, the party adopted a platform that moves farther away from gay rights with a new admonition of gay parenting, adding language that says kids raised by a mother and father tend to be “physically and emotionally healthier.” On the convention’s first day, the platform maintained its opposition to gay...

    CLEVELAND, Ohio — Breitbart News’ Joel Pollak sent The Daily Show running for cover, armed only with his cell phone camera, outside a “Gays for Trump” party hosted by Breitbart Tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos near the Republican National Convention early Wednesday.... “I wanted to shoot raw footage of their interview with a young, gay conservative, because I wanted to compare it to their final cut and see whether they had been fair to him,” Pollak recalled. “I didn’t want this person to be humiliated merely for being gay and having the ‘wrong’ political views,” Pollak added. “They told me not...

    "They're just like us, only different". No, you and I don't customarily put up photos of naked children at our "parties:" The background to Milo's speech at his political get-together tacitly announces that the Log Cabin Republicans have normalized the exploitation of America's children.youtube.com/watch?v=i05eXluAQ18 Breitbart is featuring coverage of the Daily Show crew "clicking" bystanders recording they themselves conducting "interviews", so the bystanders could later compare their video with the Daily Show report for unfair editing.

    Breitbart Tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos has been suspended from Twitter once more just 20 minutes before his “Gays for Trump” event takes place at the Republican National Convention. The justification for the suspension is currently unknown, although it could be as a result of Milo’s run-in with Ghostbusters actress Leslie Jones on the site. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey publicly reached out to Jones late on Monday evening following her complaints of “abuse” on the platform. BuzzFeed are reporting that the suspension is permanent, citing a statement from Twitter promising a clampdown on “targeted abuse.” Milo has also received a message...
