‘The gay left in total panic’: Richard Grenell touts unprecedented numbers for Trump in gay community
Richard Grenell, an ex-ambassador to Germany and former acting director of national intelligence, has some very bad news for the left concerning the gay community’s support for President Trump. He is stating that the polls now indicate more than 33% of gays support Trump. It looks like the Republicans are winning the identity politics game.
For decades, the Democrats have claimed minorities, women, and gay voters as their own. That all seems to be changing in this election as the polls indicate that these groups are trending towards a second Trump term. If these groups rally around Trump, he will be re-elected this time around.
Trump’s message is appealing to the LGBTQ community. Many are tired of being lectured and told what is acceptable by the left.
“A lot of people just don’t like to be told they can only think a certain way, and that’s exactly what the left does,” said Bob Kabel, chair of the Log Cabin Republicans, a national gay conservative group. “You’re accused of being a racist or a homophobe if you don’t agree with everything they say, and a lot of people are just tired of that.”
In February, Trump promoted Richard Grenell, then the U.S. ambassador to Germany, to acting director of the Office of National Intelligence. It made Grenell the first openly gay person named to a Cabinet-level position.
From Richard Grenell:
Support for @realDonaldTrump from the gay community is unprecedented for any Republican in history.
We will see huge numbers – more than 33% support.
The gay left is in total panic.

Three months after that, Grenell was appointed the Trump campaign’s senior adviser on LGBTQ outreach. On social media, he praised his boss as “the most pro-gay president in American history.”

Phil Kazmierczak, a gay real estate agent in Virginia who said he’s “100 percent on board” with the president, blames Democrats for fixating on identity politics.
“They force you to believe, with the help of liberal media bias, that you are no more than your sexuality or your gender or your race,” Kazmierczak said in an email. “They want you to believe that someone is constantly coming for your rights. If you’re gay, specifically, Democrat propaganda states that the Republicans are going to take away your rights.”
Kazmierczak says that Trump is a “staunch supporter of gay people and their rights,” but he said he makes a distinction when it comes to religious groups. In other words, Trump puts constitutional rights before social issues.
“He doesn’t want gay rights forced on religious institutions,” Kazmierczak said. “It doesn’t mean that he doesn’t support gay people. It means that to him, religious freedom is more important than social issues.”
The demographics are definitely in Trump’s favor this time around and that’s probably a shock to the Biden campaign. Dividing Americans and labeling them so they can be separated is not appealing to Americans gay or not.
Tell them not to be afraid. Tell them we love them ❤️
United we stand

Grenell has cited the president’s global campaign to decriminalize homosexuality and his vow to end U.S. HIV transmissions by 2030 as proof of presidential commitment to the cause in speeches at “Trump Pride” events.
That message has hit home with supporters such as Sean Bryant, a gay man from Schenectady, New York, who is semi-retired at 65 and also believes the president is the “most pro-gay” U.S. president in history.
“Homosexual men and women, right now, in this country, at this very moment, have more freedoms and more rights, and everything is perfected to the nth degree,” Bryant stated.
“What more do you want? What more does the left want?”

I believe that without the phony left/right division in this country/world we could be so great. I think 99% of people just want to be accepted and left to their beliefs without judgment or persecution on earth. If we did this & joined forces we’d end hunger, wars, God knows!
