A Trump rally along Northwest 154th Street in the Miami suburb of Miami Lakes turned hateful on Sunday, as organizers turned their wrath toward Black Lives Matter and the LGBTQ community. The rally was held in the same area a Black Lives Matter rally, which angered conservative residents, was held in the same area.
Participants wore Trump 2020 t-shirts, MAGA hats, and carried Trump/Pence signs, according to videos shot by Miami herald reporter Aaron Leibowitz, who was harassed by some of the protesters.
At one point, organizer Maria Martinez grabbed a megaphone and launched into a homophobic tirade targeting Black Lives Matter and the LGBTQ community: “Black Lives Matter wants to dismantle the Biblical definition of family. Black Lives Matter, they champion the celebration of homosexuality! Black Lives Matter touts gender confusion. And let’s be clear there’s only two genders, and that is female and male. God created them both.
Martinez’s talking points echoed those of Niger Innis, the National Spokesperson for the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) and executive director of Tea Party Forward, who told FOX News host Laura Ingraham last week that Black Lives Matter is a Marxist organization using African-Americans as a shield to push the LGBT agenda and destroy “traditional” families.
When a couple showed up with a “Black Voices Matter” sign the crowd around them grew angry, and the couple was escorted away by police.
