Media stay silent while Trump wages war on gays

I find it extraordinary that Donald Trump’s envoy to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, voted with Saudi Arabia to support putting gays to death, and it was not even mentioned in this newspaper.

In addition, the Donald has continuously rolled back as many protections for gays as he can — arguing we are not protected in employment before the federal courts, arguing we should not have the rights to have access to businesses engaged in interstate commerce in front of the Supreme Court.

It is clear to the Donald that we are the new Jews. He is setting it up to run against us just as the Nazis used the Jews to gain power. And yet the media are silent.

It is frightening to the substantial gay community which lives on this island.
