Gays for Trump leader blasts gay group’s ‘snowflake fury’

The Washington Times Daily - - NATION - — Dou­glas Ernst

The pres­i­dent of Gays for Trump says hypocrisy and “snowflake fury” of LGBT groups such as Char­lotte Pride are be­ing ex­posed by their se­lec­tive pa­rade bans since the 2016 U.S. elec­tion.

Peter Boykin, pres­i­dent of Gays for Trump, said pol­i­tics are be­hind the re­cent de­ci­sion by Char­lotte Pride to deny De­plorable-Pride from par­tic­i­pat­ing in its Au­gust pa­rade. He called in to ra­dio host Doc Thomp­son’s “The Morn­ing Blaze” show Fri­day to spot­light what he claims is ide­o­log­i­cal os­tracism.

“It’s the same com­mu­nity that sits there and wants to com­plain about not get­ting served at cer­tain places, you know?” Mr. Boykin told the host. “Mean­while, they turn around and the hypocrisy is they don’t want [rightlean­ing groups] served in queer spa­ces be­cause we don’t match their ex­act way of what they be­lieve in.”

Char­lotte Pride, which ad­vo­cates for gay rights in North Carolina and South Carolina, is­sued a state­ment Wed­nes­day say­ing it “re­serves the right” to deny any group that does not “re­flect the mis­sion.”
