Trump — and Pence — take a LOT of abuse from the LGBT crowd, claiming Republicans are somehow a threat to them. Is it time for a re-think?
The left runs breathless reports on how Trump’s ‘attack on LGBT rights is escalating’, for instance. Or other such hyperbolic declarations of imminent danger. That’s weird. Our German Ambassador doesn’t seem to feel at all threatened.
If he were in Uganda, that would be a very different story indeed. In fact, his very life might be forfeit.
This violates the UN Declaration on Human Rights. The UN must act against this. And the business community must react now too https://t.co/NjPgq6L8yu

Uganda has announced plans to impose the death penalty on homosexuals.
The bill, colloquially known as “Kill the Gays” in Uganda, was nullified five years ago on a technicality, but the government said on Thursday it plans to resurrect it within weeks.
The government said the legislation would curb a rise in “unnatural sex” in the east African nation.
“Homosexuality is not natural to Ugandans, but there has been a massive recruitment by gay people in schools, and especially among the youth, where they are promoting the falsehood that people are born like that,” the country’s ethics and integrity minister, Simon Lokodo, told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.
“Our current penal law is limited. It only criminalises the act. We want it made clear that anyone who is even involved in promotion and recruitment has to be criminalised. Those that do grave acts will be given the death sentence.”
That same outlet tried to paint Trump as hostile to LBGT rights for such heinous offenses as nuking Title IX (which denied due process to the accused); Nominating Neil Gorsuch; canceling a conference call; defending religious freedom; housing inmates according to biology, rather than self-identification. What a ‘monster’.
Meanwhile, Trump is trying to convince countries around the world — like Uganada — to reform their local laws so that homosexuality will not result in criminal prosecution, lethal or otherwise.
