Trump supporter: Demolish the Stonewall Inn to fight ‘evil’ Obama sodomy agenda
A Trump supporter has called for the President-elect to knock down New York’s iconic gay bar, the Stonewall Inn.
The Stonewall Inn is considered the birthplace of the gay rights movement, with a police raid in 1969 sparking the historic Stonewall riots.
The bar, which is still in operation, was designated as a national monument by President Obama earlier this year – preserving it due to its historic significance.
But ahead of the Trump inauguration in January, some of the President-elect’s more backwards supporters have urged him to undo that move – or just knock it down.
Writing on right-wing pro-Trump website BarbWire, Trump supporter Paul Hair compared the act to the movement to remove confederate flags from official buildings in the South.
He wrote: “Progressives are ratcheting up their War on America, and as they destroy its history there is an opportunity to strike back by working to dismantle the Stonewall Inn in New York City.”
It continues: “Demonizing and destroying American culture includes elevating evil. This is why the Obama regime honored sodomy by designating the Stonewall National Monument in June of this year.
“Donald Trump should reverse that designation when he becomes president. And while he likely wouldn’t order the subsequent dismantling of the Stonewall Inn, the removal of the national monument designation would open the way for someone else to do so.
“There already is a movement urging the incoming Trump administration to undo the Obama regime’s massive land grab. That land grab included designating the Stonewall Inn and many other areas of land as parts of national monuments.
T”here’s no reason those objecting to America honoring sodomy couldn’t join the larger movement to undo all the national monuments Obama designated at large.
“And if that effort proves successful, it then would make it possible to destroy the Stonewall Inn and wipe out its stain on American history.
“There will never again be unity in America. The culture war is permanent and peace is impossible. But fighting back isn’t.
“Dismantling the Stonewall Inn is a longshot, but if it ever happened it would be a great counterstrike against the progressives and their War on America.”
