Nazis are thrilled that Trump has ‘declared open season on faggots’

US neo-Nazis are praising Trump for “declaring opens season on faggots” after alarm was raised over an order the President signed this week.

The US President this week signed a Presidential proclamation on religious freedom that appeared to back the freedom to discriminate against LGBT people.

It says: “Unfortunately, not all have recognized the importance of religious freedom, whether by threatening tax consequences for particular forms of religious speech, or forcing people to comply with laws that violate their core religious beliefs without sufficient justification.

“No American — whether a nun, nurse, baker, or business owner — should be forced to choose between the tenets of faith or adherence to the law.”

The proclamation also praises the actions of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who has systematically worked to undermine civil rights protections for LGBT people.

And neo-Nazi website Daily Stormer could not be more thrilled.

The extremist propaganda outlet, which is very supportive of Donald Trump, put out a piece today with the headline: “Trump Declares Open Season on Faggots with Religious Freedom Declaration”.

It adds: “The Alt-Right has a bog and rooftop-based policy when it comes to the homo question. And while this is still ways away from being fully implemented, we’re being given the next best thing to tide us over: depriving perverts of gay cakes.

“This is being driven by the Trump administration under the guise of ‘religious freedom’, which is a euphemism for allowing normal people the right to discriminate against homos.”

“Yes, forcing normal people to make anal-themed cakes against their will is definitely ‘eroding’ our freedoms. ‘Freedom’ is being redefined by the slime-people as ‘forcing people to do things for you against their will’.”

The website added: “Needless to say, the faggots and their bugmen allies are showing maximum butthurt.

“Hopefully, this is just a prelude to much greater things to come.”

Just last month, Trump’s administration told the Supreme Court that it should be acceptable for businesses to put up signs denying service to same-sex couples.

Trump’s Solicitor General was supporting Jack Phillips of Colorado’s Masterpiece Cakeshop, who launched a legal challenge to the state’s anti-discrimination laws after refusing to serve a gay couple.

The baker turned away David Mullins and Charlie Craig after he found out they were getting a cake to celebrate their wedding.

Phillips has claimed that Jesus Christ would discriminate against gay people, and continues to insist his religion requires discrimination against gay people.

Elsewhere this week a new rule from the Trump-Pence administration could allow health workers to discriminate against patients by refusing to provide reproductive care to women, denying care to transgender individuals, or refusing to prescribe HIV medication or birth control.

Reps for the Democratic National Committee said: “Once again, women and the LGBTQ community are under attack from the Trump-Pence administration.

“Days before the anniversary of the Women’s March, Republicans are giving health workers a license to discriminate against women and members of the LGBTQ community.

“It wasn’t enough to try to strip transgender Americans of their right to serve, roll back access to birth control, and attempt to defund Planned Parenthood.

“Now Trump, Pence, and their Republican cronies want to allow health care workers to discriminate and rip away access to medical care. This rule is unethical and dangerously undermines public health.

“This proposal is further proof that Republicans continue to push forward an agenda completely out of step with the American people and American ideals.

“Democrats will continue to focus on how to improve access to health care for all Americans regardless of gender, orientation, or income.”
