They Don’t Have A Clue.

Their animosity is rooted in culture of the right… we are against it! What are you against? Whatever, that guy in the red hat says we are against.
A Missouri Republican tried to mock gay people for votes. She instead gave us a meme.
Valentina Gomez believes being gay is weak. History shows that hate and discrimination have made us strong.

We’re about two weeks away from Pride Month, and a Missouri Republican candidate for secretary of state just gifted us the perfect meme for the season.

“In America, you can be anything you want,” Valentina Gomez says in a social media video as she runs through an idyllic small town in a weighted vest with an American flag emblem on the front.

“So don’t be weak and gay,” she continues in the Sunday post that's no longer available. “Stay f------ hard.”

Then, the lyrics to Lupe Fiasco’s “The Show Goes On" kick in and we see a photo of Gomez in front of a pickup and next to an American flag, wearing a hat for the National Rifle Association and gripping an assault-style rifle in one hand, a handgun in the other.
Well those weak snowflakes gays had to stop laughing at the imagine that the conservatives have of gays being limp wristed and frail gay, NBC News wrote…
While some of the critical response to the video has been in earnest — including from lesbian tennis superstar Martina Navratilova, who called it “homophobic” — much of it has taken on a mocking tone.

Former Secretary of State Jason Kander, a Democrat and former Army intelligence officer, called Gomez’s post “veteran cosplay.”

“So refreshing to see a female GOP candidate who never served in the military doing the whole veteran cosplay, stolen valor, bigotry as a substitute for strength routine as well as any man,” he wrote Tuesday on X.

Rep. Becca Balint, D-Vt., an out lesbian, replied to Gomez’s X post Wednesday, writing, “Not weak, just gay,” coupled with a painted nail emoji.
The right-leaning New York Post wrote,
The 24-year-old — who made headlines earlier this year after sharing a video of herself using a flamethrower to torch library books about the LGBTQ+ community — was most recently filmed running through the Soulard District, a predominantly LGBTQ+ neighborhood in St. Louis.


Gomez, a real estate investor, has posted several similarly provocative clips online, stirring up controversy ahead of the election.

In February, she went viral for torching a stack of public library books she claims are nefariously attempting to “groom” children, and said if she is elected, she would ban books on LBGTQ+ topics.
Well now we knew how her head is screwed on.

The right-wing conservative Republicans think all gays are limp-wristed fairies and all lesbians are bull dykes. They still think that one morning we woke up and said, “Gee I bet it is fun to be gay, I want to be discriminated against, have my head bashed in.”
