Trump Admin Looks To Stop Criminalization Of Homosexuality Worldwide

Here’s the thing: while many Conservatives have an issue with the gay lifestyle, and certainly with forcing gay marriage on everyone, 99.9% of us do not want them harmed nor jailed. So there’s this

Claim – Trump’s Global War on Homophobia Is ‘Racist’, ‘Paternalistic’, ‘Colonial’

President Trump’s campaign to decriminalize homosexuality across the world is motivated by racism, a colonial sense of paternalism, and an urge to pick on ‘brown-skinned’ countries like Iran.

Or so insists a comment piece by a gay activist at the LGBTQ+ journal Out.com.

“Trump’s Plan to Decriminalize Homosexuality Is an Old Racist Tactic,” says the headline.

Below, Mathew Rodriguez claims:

Rather than actually being about helping queer people around the world, the campaign looks more like another instance of the right using queer people as a pawn to amass power and enact its own agenda.

Rodriguez is especially concerned about the plight of Iran. Sure it hangs gay men from cranes now and again. But that shouldn’t distract us from the fact when people like the Trump administration’s top-ranked gay official Richard Grennell – now the US ambassador to Germany – express concerns about Iran, it’s really just a form of repressed racism and colonialism.

Grennell’s sudden interest in Iran’s anti-gay laws is strikingly similar to Trump’s rhetoric after the 2016 Pulse massacre in Orlando, Florida. After the deadly shooting, Trump used the 49 deaths as a way to galvanize support for an anti-Muslim agenda rather than find a way to support LGBTQ+ people. In pushing for immigration restrictions and a Muslim ban, Trump argued, he was the true pro-LGBTQ+ candidate. Rather than honor those who died, Trump used the tragedy as a way to stoke fear among the American people, and Grennell is taking similar actions with Iran — trying to reach an economic goal by painting the administration’s opponent as anti-gay.

Got that? Trump and his folks are taking a stand, and now we have LGBTQwhatever attacking him and even supporting Iran.

    Just how is it our business to lobby against the criminalization of homosexual activity in other countries? We are, after all, quite disinterested in the efforts of foreign leaders to influence our laws, such as our death penalty statutes.

  2. david7134 says:

    This is interesting. How will the media handle this move. If I am not mistaken, the great majority of laws against homosexuals is in Muslim countries. So will the media support the move to the consternation of the Muslims, who they love. Or will they fight this like they did the travel ban.

    Harvey explaining why this is racist, sexist, classist, and, yes, homophobic in 4, 3, 2…

  4. Kye says:

    It’s gonna take Harvey longer than a few minutes to digest all the leftist rhetoric, assimilate it and be able to regurgitate it an a manner so as not to sound a blisteringly stupid as Matthew Rodriquez above. I mean, that guy sounds like a double talking con man selling the anti Orange Man grift to third graders.

    Aside from your obsession, aren’t you curious about, “Why this; why now”?

    Doesn’t this seem out of character for this administration?

    We know tRump is playing some angle, but what?

    Do you really believe he cares about gay Muslims in foreign lands?

    • Bill589 says:

      If you think killing homosexuals just for being homosexuals is okay, then you can oppose Donald on that too. Just because you don’t care, does not mean others do not care.
      But Elwood P. Dowd, we are still praying for you. Stop the lies and hate.

  6. Jl says:

    Do you really think liberals care about gays or women in Muslim countries? The hypocrisy is astounding- say the wrong word or wrong phrase here and the PC police will make sure your career is over, but gays thrown off buildings or women forced to cover their face or suffer FGM-you’ll never here a word from the so called progressives here.

  7. Kye says:

    I wonder how the Mohammadens would treat Jessie Smollett? An almost black fag lying to get attention. Only in America. The guy’s a millionaire (but what leftist these days isn’t?) yet he is a “victim”. He’ll make another ten mil like Kapernick did by being an undeserving, ungrateful minority. I gotta say, even when the Democrat-Communists let their pets off the plantation they really keep tabs on their progress. Sadly not many escape without a bullet or passport to Sing Sing. But that keeps them voting Democrat-Communist and solidifies their Master’s positions.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Kye,

      What makes you think that all Muslims oppress gays? Isn’t it really just the far-right Muslims who do?

      The christianist bible says “If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them.” Leviticus 20: 13.

      If the bible is the word of the christianist god, why do so-called christianists tolerate gays? Don’t christianists take the god or the bible seriously? Shouldn’t gay men be put to death?

      Most conservative christianists are white supremacist Republinazis, who have universally opposed civil rights for gay people (not to mention Black people). Do you agree with tRump’s outreach to gays in other countries?

      You sound upset that many Black people can make many, many millions. It just doesn’t seem fair does it? Beyoncé, Oprah ($2.5 BILLION), Colin Powell, Killer Mike, Chris Rock, Samuel L Jackson, Jr Bridgeman, LeBron ($38 million/yr), Ice Cube, Tiger ($800 million), P Diddy, Kenneth Frazier, Shonda Rhimes, JayZ, MJ, Dr Dre, Robt Johnson, Magic, Dave Chapelle, Snoop, Tyler Perry, Kanye, Don King Jr, Eddie Murphy, Childish Gambino, Jennifer Hudson… And have you seen those NFL salaries? And the NBA? Steph Curry makes $37 million a year! The 100th highest paid makes $12 million a year! How do these “inferior” people get so rich?

      • StillAlive says:

        It is awesome that black people make lots of money. Whats even more awesome is they live in a country that allows that.

        Living in your country as you envision it, all of these black people will once again be poor and put back on the plantation as will the rest of the population because of the unfairness of INCOME INEQUALITY.

        Why are you not screaming about this MULTI-MILLIONAIRES making millions, far, far more than their average Bruthahs? Huh? Is not this a sign of greed and avarice that these black people covet money in a capitalist society?

        You are so full of BS. I tip my glass to these people. You don’t. In your world you see them as nothing more than black honkies taken in by the evil white man while using them ONCE AGAIN AS ALL DEMOCRATS DO TO PROVE A SILLY and untrue point.

        We celebrate their wealth. More power to them. WE want more of them to have good jobs and good homes and a good life. WE WANT THEM TO SUCCEED. Perhaps the establishment left and right does not but the NEW GOP is all about them getting off the plantation and living the good life in a good country that sees them as equals in every way.

        your green new deal want to TAKE THAT MONEY FROM THEM and FORCE THEM ONCE AGAIN back on to the plantation. Blacks are seeing the light Elwood P BRAIN. Trumps numbers are closing in on 50 percent with blacks as even they understand that once again the left is off the rails and trying to put even their own wealthy back on the plantation of poverty.

  8. McGehee says:

    now we have LGBTQwhatever attacking him and even supporting Iran.

    Everything within the agenda, nothing outside the agenda, nothing against the agenda. One dead gay person is a tragedy, a million dead gay people is a statistic.

    Those gay Iranians should be grateful for the privilege of dying for the cause of getting rid of Trump.

  9. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Yesterday a reporter asked tRump about his global initiative to decriminalize homosexuality and he was unaware of it. Was it a senior moment or a rogue initiative?

    In a related issue, just last month the Trump administration allowed religious organizations to discriminate against same-sex couples seeking adoptions.

    • Kye says:

      Yesterday a reporter shouted something at Trump which he couldn’t hear correctly so to you he’s either ignorant or stupid cause you never misheard anyone. You’re such a petty person it’s ridiculous.

      Religious organizations should not be forced to do anything against their religion. Why can’t you grant other people their beliefs. Why do you hate the Constitution? It’s not like it’s a surprise that Christians don’t approve of gay marriage therefore, gay adoption is it? It’s not new is it? Then quit bitching about something that does not concern you. You don’t get to tell Christians how to practice their religion just because you’re a godless heathen.
