ISBL Asshats of the Week: Deplorable Pride

We’re the LGBT community, which means all of us, gay lesbian, bisexual and transgender, are community; we should stand with, and for, one another, always.

And, yeah, you can go a couple of letters further and call us the  LGBTQIA community ... Q could mean queer or questioning while I might mean intersex or intergender, and A is for asexual or ally, but we’re still a community and we need to be there for one another when anyone comes for any one of us.

So, please to explain Deplorable Pride, a group of gay Republicans and supporters of Donald _____, protested at Charlotte Pride in North Carolina especially on the heels of the Bigot-In-Chief signing his ban on transgender military personnel.
“Join us in Charlotte North Carolina on August 27th. Come and show your support for your fellow _____ supporters who are LGBT and are being persecuted by their own gay community. Help us show them that WE ALL STAND UNITED!”
Um, I don’t know if you’re being persecuted, Deplorables, but how you support a man who does not condemn racism, and who, in fact, promotes anti-LGBTQIA agendas is beyond me.

The Deplorable protest is in response to Charlotte Pride’s decision to bar Deplorable Pride’s pro-Donald _____ entry into the event’s parade and it set Deplorable co-founder, Brian Talbert, right, on edge:
“I’m very proud of my country, proud of my president, and was once proud of my community. I’m very proud of my vote. I don’t regret my vote. I will vote for Donald _____ again.”
Charlotte Pride maintains that they reserve “the right to decline participation at our events to groups or organizations which do not reflect the mission, vision and values of our organization.”

Good on Charlotte Pride not to allow a group who supports racism, because, let’s be really really queer, if you support _____ and he supports racism and discrimination, then you do, too, no matter you spin it.

Better still, you might think of it like this:

_____ first came for the transgender community, but I didn’t speak up because I was not transgender.

Then he came for the Bisexuals and I didn’t speak up because I was not bisexual.

Then he came for me and there was no one left to speak up.

Asshats, the lot of you.

Are these real LGBT people, or are they just supporters of Il Douche who are willing to pretend to be LGBT in order to deflect criticism from their hero? Or maybe hired actors? I saw a Craigslist ad looking for "extras," esp. people of color, to fiull out the crowd in Phoenix. Maybe this group could be something like that? Or maybe they're just Loony Toons like the "Blacks for Trump" guy.

Deplorable is exactly the right term. How many showed up?

I scored extremely low on a self-esteem test once and even I don't understand this kind of self loathing mindset.

The LGBTQ that support him puzzles me to no end. It's like supportting and befriending a gay basher. Are they just bitter bitches or are they not be washing the fruit off before they eat it?

Anne Johnson said...

I totally agree with you here.

Mitchell is Moving said...

I agree with you completely, and with them when they call themselves deplorable.

Can we expect to see this Talbert chappie at one of ______'s rallies, behind him but on the other side to that black guy, leaping up and down like a jumping firecracker, but this time manically waving a 'Gays for ______' sign? I should think it's unlikely. That black guy was placed there conspicuously to demonstrate ______'s 'inclusivity', despite the fact that it must have stuck in the craw of _______'s far-right supporters ("very fine people") though it might have helped to reassure any wavering God-botherers, particularly the black evangelicals. But revealing a GAY supporter would be a double-whammy against the right and that would be a step too far. Don't want to alienate them TOO much! So, as I say, it's unlikely.

After the transgender ban they still want to support der Trumpenfuhrer? What alternative reality are they living in?

Inexpicable.

There is always those few, I guess. But I don't get it, either.
