The Washington Examinerreports that the The Miami chapter of LGBTQ Log Cabin Republicans (LCR) announced on Monday its decision to break with the national organization to support GOP nominee Donald Trump for president.
“We, as Log Cabin Republicans of Miami, we’re Americans first, we’re Republicans second, and we happen to be gay or allies of the LGBT community. American national security is our government’s first and foremost responsibility, then the economy – those two issues really are paramount to any American,” Miami chapter president Vincent Foster told the Washington Examiner on Monday evening.
“Our membership has gotten behind the Republican national nominee and it’s unfortunate that other Republicans are unable to do so. Regardless of differences, we understand that a Hillary Clinton presidency is only going to be detrimental to the LGBT community and the general American population.”
Although LCR typically does not allow local chapters to support other candidates, the organization is allowing for flexibility in this election. The Washington, D.C.-based national group is permitting regional chapters to endorse or not endorse Trump in this election. Log Cabin Republicans in Cleveland, Los Angeles, Orange County, Texas and Georgia have also endorsed Trump.
Add all these idiots to the ‘Do Not Fuck’ and “Tar and Feather” list.
Last week, we reported about a recently engaged gay couple that were interviewed by Wall Street Journal’s Jason Bellini during a Trump rally in Cincinnati.
Asked why exactly they want Donald Trump to be the next president, one looked at the other and laughed, “Hmmmm, I don’t know baby… Why?”
His boyfriend quickly replied: “Tired’a the bullshit government! I work in the steel in-dus-try I see it hardcore at the trades and stuff. Time for a change. Trump’s the man for it.”
Bellini’s video went viral — receiving over 196k views, 707 shares, and 900 comments on facebook but the one thing that was missing is that the couple, and the WSJ never identified them.
Back2Stonewall had numerous tips from follower’s about the couples identities and believing in full disclosure we identified them as 31-year-old Dewey Lainhart and his 22 *cough – cough* -year-old fiancé Cody Moore of Middleton, OH stressing a “civil conversation” about the problems of Donald Trump being elected and the major ramifications it would cause the LGBT community.
Since then the couple now report that they have been threatened since the video came out and their names released. Even though no negative comments or threats appear on their Facebook page and they never reached out to us asking that their names be removed.
Most of the comments that ridiculed Lainhart and Moore were posted on reporter Jason Belini’s Facebook page for supporting Mr. Trump — calling them “rednecks” and suggesting that someone should “take away their gay card.” but Moore insists that because of this website making their names public that they have received hundreds of hateful messages, including some threatening physical violence. But of course presenting no evidence.
Will Kohler, the gay activist behind Back2Stonewall, says the men should have foreseen the possibility they would be recognized.
“It’s disheartening that people made hateful comments,” Mr. Kohler said. “But a lot of people might find it hateful itself to support a man who if selected will take away all the rights and… equality that the LGBT community has made over the past 45 years.”
In a followup interview Lainhart says he excuses Mr. Trump believing gay marriage should have been left to the states because his candidate now considers the issue settled by the Supreme Court’s decision. He says he doesn’t like the record on gay issues of Trump’s running mate, Mike Pence, the Indiana governor who signed a law allowing businesses to refuse to serve gays and lesbians.
“I’m not voting for the vice president. I’m voting for Trump,” he says.
In the wake of the backlash, Mr. Lainhart says he has been vigilant and says he carries a gun “because I love the Second Amendment.”
Lainhart added bothered him most was when he and his fiance were called “privileged white guys.”
He says he works 40 to 80 hours a week in a blue-collar job to afford his home and his car.
“We’re both two country folks,” he says. (Middleton, Ohio has a population of about 48,694 people. The racial makeup of the city is 83.3%White, 11.7% African American, 0.2% Native American, 0.5% Asian, 1.6% from other races, and 2.7% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 3.8% of the population.
Mr. Moore calls the gay community’s reaction “extreme.”
“The gay community is not a very supportive group,” he says. adding they don’t regret doing the interview, but claim it’s “put a damper” on their excitement over their recent engagement.
The identities of the Trump loving gay couple who made nationwide news for their interview at the Cincinnati, Ohio Donald Trump Rally on Friday have been discovered thanks to an anonymous source who contacted Back2Stonewall.com.
The couples names are Dewey Lainhart and Cody Moore of Middleton and Kettering, Ohio.
Not much is known about the couple except that they were engaged on October 7th. and are both are die hard Donald Trump supporters. (And out of their ever loving gay little minds)
Feel free to stop by and congratulate them on their engagement on their Facebook pages below. Or talk about you know how Trump being elected would null their engagement, take way their civil rights, and make them more of second class citizens then they already are. In a CIVIL conversation of course.
