Trump Campaign Website Selling ‘LGBTQ for Trump’ T-Shirts, Pins

Trump Shirts-compressedThe website for the presidential campaign of Republican nominee Donald Trump is selling “LGBTQ for Trump” t-shirts and pins, drawing applause from some and disappointment from others.

“Show your pride and your support for Trump with this exclusive equality tee,” the store page for the t-shirt, available as the “Trump pride men’s tee,” reads.

The shirt, swiped with rainbow colors and bearing the phrase “LGBTQ for Trump,” is available for $30 while the pin sells for two for $5.

Chris Barron of LGBT for Trump and GOProud praised the campaign’s offering of homosexual apparel, Tweeting, [email protected] makes history again. First GOP Presidential candidate to do LGBT outreach merchandise! LOVE IT!”

Garison Carrell of the Log Cabin Republicans did the same, posting, “The absolute most pro-gay candidate. Thank you @realDonaldTrump #GaysforTrump #LGBT #Election2016”

But Cary Gordon, pastor of Cornerstone World Outreach in Sioux City, Iowa, expressed sorrow over the development.

“From Donald Trump’s campaign website… You can buy pro-gay pride Trump for President t-shirts. Tell me again how the Church should ignore and dishonor Exodus 18:21 to help this wicked assistant to the enemy of religious liberty so they can ‘stop’ a ‘greater evil,'” he Tweeted on Sunday.

Gordon was referring to the biblical mandate to select rulers  “such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness.”

The Constitution Party of Tennessee likewise conveyed its dismay over the matter.

“Donald J. Trump becomes the first Republican presidential candidate to offer official pro-LGBTQ merchandise with the unveiling of ‘LGBTQ for Trump’ apparel. If Trump will do this, what won’t he do?” it opined.

As previously reported, Trump declared at a fundraiser in June that he is the best candidate for the “gay community.”

“So you tell me, who’s better for the gay community, and who’s better for women than Donald Trump? Believe me!” he said.

During his acceptance speech last month, Trump told those gathered that he would work to protect homosexuals if elected.

“As president, I will do everything in my power to protect LGBTQ citizens from the violence and oppression of a hateful foreign ideology,” Trump declared, being met with applause.

“And, I have to say, as a Republican, it is so nice to hear you cheering for what I just said,” he said in response.

In February, he also replied in the affirmative when asked by a lesbian reporter if the nation can expect “more forward motion” on homosexual issues if elected president.

Both Trump and Clinton have declared that they are the best choice for the “LBGT community.”

“We will defend all our rights—civil rights, human rights and voting rights—women’s rights and workers’ rights—LGBT rights and the rights of people with disabilities!” Clinton declared during her acceptance speech a week after Trump made his remarks.

The previous month, she marched in New York City’s “gay pride” parade, posting numerous Tweets that day about the issue, including a video of the Democratic candidate speaking at a homosexual and transgender community center.

“[P]art of what I want to do as president is to keep not only our campaign for full equality going, but also to turn our attention with the help of so many like you to speak out and work for giving others around the world the opportunity to be who they are, love who they choose, [and] have the kind of future they deserve,” she said in the clip.

    How is it controversial that Trump wants to protect all American citizens including it’s gay citizens? Are gays not human? Do they not deserve Christian love and empathy? Are not many of them Christians themselves? If you want to hurt innocent people because they’re gay I don’t think you represent the average American Christian.

    • zeddicuskotor

      Because he is obviously not sincere about it. He supports and is backed by alt right freaks that wouldn’t hesitate to increase hate crimes against minorities.

      • Guest✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        What do you think alt-right means?

        • zeddicuskotor

          It’s a bad attempt to revitalize the white supremacist movement with new paint.

          • Guest✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            So why are so many members of the alt right African Americans, homosexuals, Latinos, and other minorities? You know what the alt-right really is? It’s a movement of young Americans who make fun of the rigid, staid old PC police.

          • zeddicuskotor

            Nope, it’s an attempt by white supremacists to reassert their dominance in politics after 50 years of defeat. It won’t work because millennials are significantly more tolerant and multinational than previous generations.

          • Guest✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            You’re spreading false information. It began as a sub-culture making fun of the old, politically correct crowd like the Dems and libs. Why else do you think Pepe the cartoon character is their mascot? And yes, they’re laughing at you. 🙂

            Nope, the alt right are white supremacists. Same people, different name. It’s the reason why trump is allowing them into his campaign.

          • Amos Moses

            They were not the liberal democrats we have today ……. but still the same party ……. they were not “right-wingers” as you call them …….

          • TheKingOfRhye

            How can they be both “not the liberal democrats we have today” and “still the same party”? That makes no sense.

          • ShemSilber

          • Amos Moses

            Founded in 1866, the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) extended into almost every southern state by 1870 and became a vehicle for white southern resistance to the Republican Party’s Reconstruction-era policies aimed at establishing political and economic equality for blacks. Its members waged an underground campaign of intimidation and violence directed at white and black Republican leaders. Though Congress passed legislation designed to curb Klan terrorism, the organization saw its primary goal–the reestablishment of white supremacy–fulfilled through Democratic victories in state legislatures across the South in the 1870s.

          • TheKingOfRhye

            Which kinda goes along with what I was saying.

          • Amos Moses

            Sure … so what was the date when the democrats and republicans decided to exchange names of their respected parties ……..

          • TheKingOfRhye

            Well, they didn’t exactly “exchange names”, that’s a bit of an oversimplification, but it was basically a gradual thing over a long time. The party sure didn’t start out as what it is today.

            At any rate, it’s not really “left-wing” vs. “right-wing”, in this country, it’s more like “right-wing” and “further-right”.

          • edwitness

            Thekingofrhye,
            The truth is they have moved left and further left. Otherwise known as the global governance party. And now they are in the process of making all of us slaves. Or dead.

          • TheKingOfRhye

            If you’re saying the Democratic Party “moved left”, then yeah, that’s pretty much what I’m saying. But still, it’s basically center/center-right vs. right.

            And “making all of us dead”? Well, that will happen to all of us eventually, no matter what party is running things, you know….

          • edwitness

            So kingofrhye,
            Are you saying that communist dictatorship is right wing? Only in the dem la la land of the MSM.
            The democrats are left wing and moving further left while the repubs have moved left as much or more than the Dems.
            The further left meaning more big gov’t control.

          • TheKingOfRhye

            What I’m saying is that we’re right-wing when compared to the rest of the world.

          • ShemSilber

            Thank you kindly, Brother Amos, for these posts, which amount to a college-level discourse on the history of the Democratic party. We should have to pay tuition for such lessons, not so?

            1. The first official legal slaveholder in the American colonies was Anthony Johnson, a black man.In 1654 Johnson took his black indentured servant, John Casor, to court, alleging he had actually purchased Casor as a slave who was meant to serve Johnson for life. The court ruled in Johnson’s favor, and as Kinchlow noted, this appeared to be the first legal sanction of slavery, except as punishment for a crime, in the English New World colonies.
            In fact, black ownership of slaves was not uncommon in the early part of U.S. history. According to the 1830 U.S. Census, of the 10,689 free blacks living in New Orleans, more than 3,000 were slave masters.

            2. The Republican Party was founded on opposition to slavery.It was a group of likeminded citizens in Wisconsin who formed a new political party in 1854 for the express purpose of stopping the spread of slavery into the federal territories. Of the 17 planks in the early Republican Party platform, seven directly or indirectly called for the abolition of slavery.

            3. The so-called “Radical Republicans” were considered radical because they favored not only the abolition of slavery, but complete equality for the newly freed slaves.Kinchlow noted the 1860s were long before the days of political correctness. The “Radical Republicans” had very little to gain by supporting the rights of ex-slaves to full citizenship. Moreover, it was a racist Democratic president, Andrew Johnson, who repeatedly rejected congressional Republicans’ attempts to assist the freed slaves.

            4. In the immediate post-Civil War years, some Democrats did not believe a black man was capable of writing a good speech.Black congressman Robert Brown Elliott, R-S.C., once debated several Democratic opponents over a civil rights bill on the floor of the U.S. House. Democrats could not refute his argument on its merits, so they charged that Elliott had not actually written his floor speech. They argued a Negro by himself “could accomplish nothing of literary excellence.”

            5. Almost 30 percent of Ku Klux Klan victims were white.The Klan targeted white Republicans for being “n—– lovers” who wanted to help blacks secure their constitutionally guaranteed rights. Meanwhile, the KKK became a significant Democratic constituency group, helping to elect legislators, sheriffs, judges and mayors who went on to become Klan members.

          • Amos Moses

            6. Democrats, either by filibuster or committee, never allowed a single federal anti-lynching measure to become law.When the House passed an anti-lynching bill in 1922, southern Democrats killed it, arguing it was unconstitutional because it interfered with state and local authority. House Democrats also filibustered to death anti-lynching measures in 1937 and 1940.

            7. In the 1876 presidential election, 99 percent of blacks voted Republican.Black Democrats were so rare that one congressman mentioned his encounter with one the Congressional Record in 1868. Meanwhile, 90 percent of blacks voted Democrat in the 2000 election.

            8. A majority of blacks actually agree with Republicans on many public policy issues.Kinchlow reported a majority of blacks supported school prayer, education vouchers, faith-based initiatives, the death penalty, and English as the official U.S. language. Meanwhile, polls indicated a majority of blacks opposed same-sex “marriage,” the legalization of pot and even race-based affirmative action.

            9. The NAACP sued then-Gov. Bill Clinton in 1989 for violating the federal Voting Rights Act of 1965.A three-judge panel in Arkansas ordered Clinton to redraw electoral districts to allow blacks greater voting strength. This was the man considered “our first black president.”

            10. Republicans voted for the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965 at greater rates than Democrats did.This was true in both the House and Senate. House Republicans out-supported Democrats on the Civil Rights Act 81 to 60 percent and on the Voting Rights Act 85 to 80 percent. Senate Republicans out-supported Democrats on the Civil Rights Act 82 to 60 percent and on the Voting Rights Act 97 to 74 percent.

        Zeddicuskotor,
        When Hillary refers to the “alt-right” she is saying what she said years ago when Bill was Pres. Then she called it the “vast right wing conspiracy”. She is refering to the alternative media and it’s adherents. You know, like the site you are on now.
        She attaches incendiary names to it like racist etc to give it an ugly face. The truth is they are not any of the things she claims. It is her and her ilk who are all those things.

      All people deserve the love of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. If they are living in a willful sinful lifestyle (any sinful lifestyle) they are not saved and not followers of Christ. Christ makes it clear that homosexuality is sinful and goes against God’s word.

      Kaila,
      No! Men that have sex with men, and women likewise, are not Christian. They are idol worshippers.
      Romans1:25-27 and 32
      “Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

      For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

      And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet………..Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are WORTHY OF DEATH, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.”

    As we’ve already witnessed in the US via so many cases against Christian business owners and government employed Christians…protecting “LGBTQ citizens” meant ripping away the first amendment rights of those very Christians. Trump and Hillary have made it clear, things will not get any better for many Christians, no matter who wins.

    “As president, I will do everything in my power to protect LGBTQ citizens from the violence and oppression of a hateful foreign ideology,”

    While I’m fully aware of Muslim teaching regarding intimacy between people of the same sex, as well as the harsh punishments for it in some Muslim countries, I’m far more concerned about the violence and oppression of a hateful domestic ideology, as embodied in the Republican platform, something Trump has not denounced. The fact is Trump has managed to alienate both those who support equality for the LGBT community and those who oppose it. He claims to “tell it like is,” but regarding LGBT issues as with others, he’s said whatever he thought would work depending on the crowd before him.

    • Amos Moses

      “a hateful domestic ideology, as embodied in the Republican platform”

        4. Opposition to legislation ensuring trans individuals have access to the restroom of their choosing.

        I’m certainly aware that you consider these good things, but I don’t. In fact, I think they’re unfair, unAmerican, and at odds with most Americans’ views. And I stand by my claim that for American LGBT people, this is a far greater threat than what is happening in Saudi Arabia and other countries. That doesn’t mean American LGBT don’t care about those grave injustices, but we have to fight the battle which is before us.

    Thanks so much Heather for this article. I hear so much from Christians about how we must vote for Trump because we can’t allow Hillary to get in. But, as far as I am concerned, anyone who will pander to the abomination of the homosexual and their “rights” can not be reconciled to a Christian’s vote. Not now, not ever.

    The two wings of the same party that Dems and repubs represent is globalism. The final gov’t that the AC rules just before Jesus returns. Because of Trump’s endorsement of “homosexual rights” it would take more than just holding your nose and voting for the “lesser of two evils”. The Christian would have to leave Jesus out of their choice in the voting booth all together.

    I for one am not, nor ever will be, willing to do that.

        What we really need to do is find a candidate that does fit the criteria needed for president, like Ron or Rand Paul. Then simply write him in. Wouldn’t it be great if that was how this election was settled?
        Rand Paul is my write in choice and that is exactly what I plan to do.
        He is not his father but, he is a Christian and very much pro life and pro constitution as intended from the founders. And the only rights a homosexual has are those the constitution guarantees. Nothing more.

    “HOMELAND SECURITY TO TAKE CHARGE OF ELECTIONS”

    Any hope that we had for an election of anyone by the people has just been lost …… the republic has been usurped ……

    • Amos Moses

      Even before the FBI identified new cyber attacks on two separate state election boards, the Department of Homeland Security began considering declaring the election a “critical infrastructure,” giving it the same control over security it has over Wall Street and and the electric power grid.

      The latest admissions of attacks could speed up that effort possibly including the upcoming presidential election, according to officials.

      “We should carefully consider whether our election system, our election process, is critical infrastructure like the financial sector, like the power grid,” Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said.

      “There’s a vital national interest in our election process, so I do think we need to consider whether it should be considered by my department and others critical infrastructure,” he said at media conference earlier this month hosted by the Christian Science Monitor.

    A Candidate’s Death Could Delay or Eliminate the Presidential Election
    Chaos would ensue if a vacancy emerges near Election Day.

    The presidential election could be delayed or scrapped altogether if conspiracy theories become predictive and a candidate dies or drops out before Nov. 8. The perhaps equally startling alternative, if there’s enough time: Small groups of people hand-picking a replacement pursuant to obscure party rules.

    The scenarios have been seriously considered by few outside of the legal community and likely are too morbid for polite discussion in politically mixed company. But prominent law professors have pondered the effects and possible ways to address a late-date vacancy.

    “There’s nothing in the Constitution which requires a popular election for the electors serving in the Electoral College,” says John Nagle, a law professor at the University of Notre Dame, meaning the body that officially elects presidents could convene without the general public voting.
