After the worst mass shooting in U.S. history where 49 people were killed at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Gateway Pundit’s Jim Holt declared it’s “time for gays to come home to [the] Republican party.”
On June 12, a gunman killed 49 people and wounded 53 others before being killed by law enforcement at the gay nightclub Pulse in Orlando. The number of casualties makes the terror attack the worst mass shooting in U.S. history.
In response to the massacre, Breitbart News’ homepage featured an article by Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft, declaring “it’s time for gays to come home” to the GOP. Hoft -- who has a history of regularly promoting fabricated, baseless attacks on liberals -- is also known for his 2009 anti-gay smear campaign against Kevin Jennings, the Department of Education official responsible for preventing bullying in schools. During his attacks on Jennings, Hoft regularly drew on the work of anti-gay hate group MassResistance.
In the June 13 Breitbart News article, Hoft declared that presumptive GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump is the only one who can “protect all gays,” and came out as a “conservative gay activist” to “defend [the country] from the socialist onslaught.”
From Breitbart News:
After the deadliest Islamist attack on American soil since 9-11 Barack Obama blamed hatred and guns. His inability to called the attack what it is – Islamic jihad – has progressed from denial to psychosis. It’s never been more apparent than Sunday, when Barack was comparing the Pulse club attack to a movie theater shooting by a schizophrenic, that our poor president has lost his own grasp of reality.
Obama was not the only one. Leftwing gay activists posted ridiculous and ignorant remarks after the deadliest single attack on gays in modern history.
I came out in the 1980s to family and friends during the AIDS epidemic. I saw a lot of friends get sick. I saw a lot of friends die. I went to a lot of funerals.
It was a scary time to be gay.
Like most gay Americans, I don’t wear my sexuality on my sleeve. I go about my daily business. I try not to harm anyone. I love my family. I love my friends. I love my country.
I’ve been a conservative activist for years. But today I’m coming out as a conservative gay activist.
In the past few years I’ve built one of the most prominent conservative websites in America. I created The Gateway Pundit because I wanted to speak the truth. I wanted to expose the wickedness of the left. I was raised to love my country. Today I serve my country by defending her from the socialist onslaught.
But last night at least 49 gays were slaughtered at an Orlando club.
Despite this obvious Islamic attack, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are still in denial.
I can no longer remain silent as my gay brothers and sisters are being slaughtered at dance clubs.
There is only one man who can lead this nation and protect all gays and all Americans. His name is Donald Trump.
In 2015 a conservative Supreme Court granted gays the right to marry.
In 2016 only one candidate will protect gays from another Islamist attack.
I pray that gays will come back home to the Republican Party – no more death.
Dear God, please no more death.
