It’s time for the LGBT community to give the GOP a second look.
Donald Trump wants to protect all Americans — including the LGBT community — from radical Islamist terrorists who want to kill us. Democrats, on the other hand, including Hillary Clinton, insist on open borders while importing thousands of refugees from countries in the Middle East who openly throw gays off rooftops, stone homosexuals to death and deny this community basic human rights.
In fact, in many Middle Eastern countries, homosexuality is punishable by death. Some of these countries include Yemen, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Saudia Arabia, Iran, Iraq and Sudan — just to name a few.
But don’t tell Hillary Clinton that. The Clinton Foundation has accepted millions of dollars from many Middle Eastern nations who imprison gays, flog them or outright kill them simply for being homosexual. Clearly if Clinton truly cared about human rights, she would’ve rejected the unsavory money and told these barbaric countries that until they provide equality, dignity and human rights to all of its citizens — including the gay community — she’s not accepting one bloody cent.
But that didn’t happen. Instead Clinton cashed the check.
Of course, not all Muslims are homophobic, nor are they violent, but millions of them come from a homophobic culture and legal system — Sharia Law — that condemns homosexuality with deadly consequences.
The slaughter at the gay nightclub in Orlando was a wake-up call that the radical Islam threat is no longer an “over there” problem. It’s in our cities and neighborhoods.
The LGBT community is an ISIS target and we must heed caution.
Donald Trump and many within the GOP believe we can display our compassion for refugees by sending humanitarian aid — while our government fixes its broken immigration system. It’s no secret that the FBI interviewed Omar Mateen twice in 2013 and 2014 then let him go.
So much for vetting.
ISIS is hell bent on destroying us. Trump, on the other hand, wants to protect the Second Amendment and send the Islamic State back to the Stone Age where they belong.
Come November the choice is clear.
