Donald Trump

There is no question that Donald Trump is hostile to LGBT interests. This afternoon, Donald Trump will address the Values Voter Summit which is principally organized by two anti-LGBT hate groups; Family Research Council and American Family Association. The same afternoon session includes a number of bigots including the Benham brothers, Michele Bachmann, Jerry Boykin, Elaine Donnelly and Rick Santorum. Again that is just the afternoon session which follows the AFA luncheon. There are scores of unhinged anti-gay maniacs in play at this event.

I do not know what Log Cabin plans to do. Personally, I try to make fact-based judgments. If Trump has something specific to say about LGBT rights then he needs to address them in writing. There is nothing on the official campaign website. I found his tweet after the Pulse Nightclub massacre to be all about Trump. It was offensive.

What we do know is that Trump supports the anti-LGBT law (HB2) in North Carolina. Trump has opposed marriage equality for years (at least since he was pimping Carrie Prejean in 2009) and he still does. Trump posits states’ rights which is just code for lawful discrimination. Trump has also promised to nominate justices to the Supreme Court who will roll back the ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges.

When I write that Log Cabin is unpredictable, there is this barforama this month:

This requires no comment from me. Certainly not one that would be free of expletives.
