Confronted By Protester, Marco Rubio Insults Pulse Victims

A group of hero gays confronted that cowardly twerp Marco Rubio about how he has more respect for the rights of guns than the rights of gays, and we couldn’t be more proud.

Rubio was hosting some kind of town hall on Tuesday about helping the businesses that were impacted by the Pulse shooting. (Apparently business tends to be slow after a mass shooting in the neighborhood. Thanks, NRA.) But about 30 protesters, including a fellow named Dave Moran, kept shouting him down.

In particular, Moran accused Rubio of having a close relationship with the NRA and not doing anything to support LGBTs. Rubio, an NRA-sponsored Senator, voted against limiting the gigantic magazines that facilitate mass shootings.

He also had the gall to insult the victims of the Pulse shooting, claiming that he’s not a homophobe. “Quite frankly I respect all people,” he said, adding, “we probably have a disagreement on the definition of marriage.”

It takes some nerve to throw in a dig at the murdered LGBT people at an event centered on their massacre. The meaning of Rubio’s statement is clear: straight people are better than queers. Gays are inferior. Those people who died didn’t deserve equal protection, and they didn’t deserve due process.

The Pulse shooting is complicated and the shooter’s motivations defy simple explanation. But anti-LGBT violence is still widespread, and it’s facilitated by demeaning comments like those still being made by Marco Rubio.

The Republican party likes to pretend that they’re on our side because they say they’d fight the regimes that put homosexuals to death. But that’s a lie. Given the option, they’d be right there on the rooftops throwing us over if they could.

by JohnGallagher September 26, 2016

Donald Trump is off to a great start: he acknowledged that he was born with a silver spoon in his mouth and that he hoped to profit off the housing crisis.  And God bless Clinton for saying that Trump lives in his own reality. If by reality, you mean make-believe universe, that’s totally accurate.
