The leader of the national organization of LGBT Republicans told Big League Politics he is frustrated by the mainstream media’s distortion of President Donald J. Trump’s attitude and policies regarding the LGBT community.
“We have never had a Republican administration in the United States that has stated unequivocally and explicitly its commitment to the human rights of LGTB individuals globally,” said Gregory T. Angelo, the president of the Log Cabin Republicans.
“In the past, you had indications from the George W. Bush administration and the George H.W. Bush administration, but they never explicitly said it,” he said.
Angelo said the Bush I and Bush II White Houses would often leak its support on background or appoint gay ambassadors or other officials as a symbolic gesture.
The 2012 delegate for Newt Gingrich said he was frustrated by how the mainstream media continues to put out the narrative that the president and his administration are hostile to LGBT individuals and their human rights.
“It is a conflagration of confirmation bias that liberals have about the Trump administration working at all times and in all ways against LGBT individuals—and a media that is obsessed with clickbait headlines and getting clicks rather than getting the story right.”
The most recent example was the Sept. 29 vote at the United Nations Human Rights Council, when UN Ambassador Nikki Haley voted against a council resolution condemning the death penalty as punishment for homosexual acts, he said.
The vote was actually a political maneuver by opponents of the death penalty in general and the council vote was meant to embarrass the United States and supporters of the death penalty, he said. In 2014, under President Barack Obama, the U.S. abstained from a similar resolution.
“There were a number of articles about this resolution that I saw, written by the entertainment reporters, Tweeted out about by people with no experience writing in politics and certainly do not understand the nuances of international diplomacy,” he said.

Many of the stories actually had headlines claiming that the Trump administration voted in favor of the death penalty for LGBT individuals, he said.
When he heard about it, Angelo called his contacts at the American mission to the United States to verify what he had been reading and what people had been calling him and texting him about.
His contacts told him that this resolution has come up repeatedly and the United States has never voted for it, he said. “But, never in this fake news, social media 140-character, clickbait, news environment, which we live in right now.”
Fact: There was NO vote by USUN that supported the death penalty for gay people. We have always fought for justice for the LGBT community.

Angelo said he is 100 percent confident that Trump does not want to execute the gays. “Were there any doubt—and it is so absurd that we have gotten to the point—Nikki Haley Tweeted out, personally, that this resolution had nothing to do with LGBT individuals and that the United States.
Wisconsin Man Charged With Anti-White Hate Crime in Vicious Vehicular Murder
The suspect has admitted he targeted Thiessen because he thought he was a “white racist.”
A Wisconsin man intentionally drove over a motorcyclist because he was white last week in the town of Taycheedah, killing the man. 27-year old Daniel Navarro, who has been identified as Mexican American, is being charged with hate crime-enhanced first degree murder and reckless driving for driving into 55-year old Philip Thiessen, a Marine Corps veteran and retired law enforcement officer. Navarro reportedly targeted Thiessen on the basis of his race, and his belief that “white racists” drive the Harley-Davidson motorcycles that Thiessen was riding.
Thiessen was currently an investigator with the Wisconsin Department of Justice, who investigated crimes against children. Members of the community have mourned the man as a pillar of the community.
Fond du Lac County Sheriff Ryan Waldschmidt has reported that Navarro admitted to attacking Thiessen with his vehicle intentionally at the crime scene, stating “yes, it was intentional” to a responding officer. The suspect later admitted to his racial motives in the crime when confessing to police.
“Navarro said that if President Donald Trump and white people are going to create the world we are living in, he has no choice and that people are going to have to die,” said the sheriff.
Later, during his interrogation at the sheriff’s office precinct, Navarro reportedly said that he wanted to go to prison for the rest of his life to escape his “racist” neighbors, whom he could supposedly hear making racist remarks through the walls of his house.
Fond du Lac police have reportedly tried to place Navarro under a forcible mental health evaluation before, unsuccessfully. In his first court appearance, Judge Robert Wirtz set Navarro’s bond at $1 million.
Unfortunately, there’s reason to believe that the radical racial politics of the Left is going to lead to further violent hate crimes against White Americans.
