A lesbian couple in their seventies discovered a disgusting homophobic note on their car after visiting their local library.

The pair, who’d visited Jimmie B Keel Library in Florida, think they may have been targeted due to an equality sticker on their car.

“Dear Madam, please don’t take this personally,” the note begins. “But please know there are people like me who thoroughly despise and detest your screwed up notions of equality, as clearly represented by the equality sticker on the back of your car. Thank you for self-identifying.

“We had enough of that crap under the despicable Obama administration and we are not going to tolerate the same of worse under Hilary’s jack-booted oppression,” it added.

“We voted for Trump in droves, and will do so again in four years.”

While the couple did not want to appear on camera to discuss the note, Patty Cohn, who was with them at the library, told ABC Action News it was “nasty” and “cowardly”.

“These women are in their mid-seventies, one needs a cane to walk. This can not go on. People can not be targeted because of who they are,” she added.

Library staff members were alerted to the note, but took no action, saying it was a private matter between two people with opposing views.

The Hillsborough County Women’s Democratic Club, who the couple was attending a meeting with, said they were planning a public way to support the women.

“They weren’t just attacking those two elderly women they were attacking all the people who stand shoulder to shoulder with those women,” added Cohn.

Last November, A Presbyterian minister found a note on his windscreen in the wake of the Trump election win that threatened that his same-sex marriage will be taken away.

Randy Lee Webster is a minister of faith and worship at the First Presbyterian Church in Burlington Iowa.

The note read: “So, father homo. How does it feel to have Trump as your president?

“At least he’s got a set of balls. They’ll put marriage back where God wants it and take yours away. America’s gonna take care of your faggity ass.”

Meanwhile, another pro-Trump note that attacked LGBT rights was left on another person’s car.

The note, written on a scrap of paper, read “time for faggots to go back where they belong. Trump is president now. No more marriage. No more rights. No more faggots.”

Hateful notes like these have spiked in occurrence since the election of Donald Trump as President. There is a petition here calling on President Trump not to attack the rights of trans children.
