Breitbart's Milo Rallies All The Gays To Trump, By Burning Rainbow Flag
Fatuous sparkleturd and Breitbart scribe Milo Yiannopoulos is hoping that his new video, featuring a burning rainbow flag, will convince LGBTQ Americans to VOTE TRUMP. He implores them, in his best, most sincerest-est "Sarah McLachlan narrating an ad about shelter dogs" voice, to understand that Donald Trump is the only man who is going to protect them from EVIL MUSLIM IMMIGRANTS who are definitely going to come over here and murder them.

I’m here to give you a warning from Europe. I know what happens when government and the media colludes to pander to Islam. I know what happens to gay people that the left claims that it is here to defend. The regressive left is the single biggest enemy to the well-being of homosexuals and every other minority they claim to represent that exist in America today. They are not helping you, they are instead lulling you into a false sense of security that you are safe. We have a threat on our shores, in our communities that requires a response from the minorities the left has given up on. Importing Muslims into this country is going to represent significant risks to minorities…Please don’t make our mistakes. America is better than that.
The speech took place at Pulse Nightclub and was ostensibly meant to use that tragedy in order to highlight the "danger" of Muslim immigrants. Of course, as Sean Mandell at Towleroad points out, this whole argument is made rather awkward by the fact that the Orlando shooter was not a Muslim immigrant. He wasn't imported from anywhere. He was born here, in America!
Nevertheless, basically what he is saying is that the Left (which, you know, includes many gay people) has fought for gay rights for the past god knows how many years, simply for the purpose of "lulling you into a false sense of security" -- just so that all the gay people could later be murdered by Muslim immigrants? Oh my! That is quite an elaborate plan!
And, naturally, the party that has fought against gay rights, marriage equality and AIDS funding, and for keeping sodomy laws; the party still whining about letting trans people use the bathroom; the party that has a presidential nominee who says he would appoint Supreme Court judges that would overturn same-sex marriage and a vice-presidential nominee who once wrote an essay telling employers not to hire LGBTQ people -- they are the party that really has always the best interests of LGBTQ citizens at heart. That totally makes all of the sense.
This is actually a fairly common argument made in conservative cesspools on the internet, that the Left has tricked the minorities into voting for them by very slyly not being actively horrible to them or suggesting they should not have rights, and also by bribing them with social welfare programs and not just letting poor people die of starvation, as the conservatives who truly respect them would prefer. We've always wondered what our Secret Evil Endgame for this was supposed to be, and it turns out, at least for the gays, it is to watch them all die at the hands of Muslim immigrants. Makes sense!
