This is the guy Trump just retweeted about the joys of homosexuality in Indian cinema. Pretty low. https://t.co/KyQEF3i0Bv— King God Emperor President BIümpf (@EmperorInChief) February 21, 2020
Hey @PeteButtigieg – your entire campaign is built around progress for gay and lesbian people— Charlie Kirk (@charliekirk11) February 21, 2020
Why haven’t you said ONE WORD about Ric Grennell being appointed to a CABINET position, the first ever in history?
Maybe because you don’t care about LGBT progress, only your career
This isn’t a bug.
It has been a feature of Trumpism that stretches back to MILO’s college tour, Peter Thiel’s speech at the 2016 RNC and the Deploraball during the Trump inauguration.
Donald Trump has moved the Overton Window in the sense that homosexuality has been completely mainstreamed on the Right. In contrast, White grievances are stoked but remain as taboo as ever. This is the big cultural change of the Trump era. Charlie Kirk’s “Culture War” college tour is best seen as a culture war against the Right to shift conservatives Left on social issues and more in line with donor preferences. It is the domestic counterpart of Trump’s foreign policy which has launched global crusades to promote feminism and homosexuality.
Note: In the last debate, I noticed Bernie Sanders casually mentioned his White working class supporters. Donald Trump never talks about his White supporters.
