Mike Pence is far more extreme than Donald Trump, and Matt Baume lays out the evidence in a new video that will bring you up to date on all of Pence’s hideous homophobic moments.
For example, Pence opposed HR2410 in 2009, a bill that would have encouraged foreign governments to decriminalize homosexuality. He also supports gay conversion therapy, defunded HIV programs, opposed hate crime protections based on sexual orientation, opposed the repeal of ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’. He opposed marriage equality and wanted to ban civil unions.
His most high-profile anti-gay moment, however, was his signing of Indiana’s anti-LGBT ‘religious freedom’ bill. You may remember that one.
“Mike Pence may look comparatively stable next to Trump. But he’s actually way more extreme when it comes to LGBT issues — here’s just a sampling of some his worst hits. This is the guy who could be second in line to run the country, and that’s a huge problem since Trump’s one of the most impeachment-ready candidates we’ve ever had.”
