Twitter battle explodes when black Trump supporter attempts to downplay her claim that gays are violent pedophiles

Trump supporter Angela Stanton-King  (seen here with Trump) tried to downplay a homophobic tweet accusing gay men of being violent pedophiles. Nice try, girlfriend.

Earlier this week, I wrote about Angela Stanton-King, a  black Trump supporter and the god daughter of "prominent" black Trump supporter Alveda King. I, and several others, called her out for posting this lying tweet implying that gay men are violent pedophiles:

It's not surprising that when faced with the public backlash for this, Stanton-King attempted to play the victim:

Stanton-King added that she’s “not against LGBTQ rights like same-sex marriage,” because she has a 19-year-old son who identifies as gay and a gay aunt who raised her. She believes, however, that there is a need for legislation that ensures “children are not tied to the LGBTQ community.”

That led me to go to her Twitter feed and read comments she made about the controversy. This one started a war between her and I:

You will notice what particular tweet she didn't mention. I wasn't going to let her get away with that distortion:

She didn't like that and so we battled. Some of the tweets was simply us going back and forth. Others are me simply retweeting her mess while calling out her ignorance. Here are some samples

Notice how in this last tweet, she continues to play the victim:

Granted, there were a lot more tweets from her and some of her supporters (five of which I reported) and as well as a few tweets from folks supporting me. So the battle was longer than this and more convoluted. However, the tweets I saved emphasizes the gist of the situation.

Ms. Stanton-King is an ignorant person attempting to cash in on status. She weaponizes religion to scapegoat LGBTQ people much like anti-Semites  weaponized religion to scapegoat people of the Jewish faith and white racists have done the same to African-Americans. However, she is unsophisticated and very obtuse. She seems to think that clinging to her religion and a painfully simple-minded view of her racial heritage will get her over the hump which her bullheaded stupidity has created in this situation. She also seems to think that claiming that she supports Trump has endowed her with some type of talent to be believed when she lies to those who have the "receipts" to call her out.

So why did I give her attention? Because children of color are listening. We tend to forget about them sometimes. And because the mentality which oozes out of her causes death. Evil people with fists, bats, and other weapons of destruction have battered innocent gay men because of false beliefs connecting them to pedophilia. That in itself is bad enough. But then there are situations in which children - the ones Stanton-King claims to be protecting - become the victims of sick people who think that being gay is something which can be 'beaten' out of them.

We go a long way to preventing the madness I described above when we don't always choose to ignore it. There are some times when we have to say "Oh hell no!"

This is one of those times.

Your post made me think of a teaching tool we used to use back in the 80s. HETEROSEXUAL QUESTIONNAIRE

1. What do you think caused your heterosexuality?

2. When and where did you decide you were a heterosexual?

3. Is it possible this is just a phase and you will out grow it?

4. Is it possible that your heterosexual orientation has stemmed from a neurotic fear of others of the same sex?

5. Do your parents know you are straight? Do your friends know- how did they react when you told them?

6. If you have never slept with a person of the same sex, is it just possible that all you need is a good gay lover?

7. Why do you insist on flaunting your heterosexuality... can’t you just be who you are and keep it quiet?

8. Why do heterosexuals place so much emphasis on sex?

9. Why do heterosexuals try to recruit gays into their lifestyle?

10. A disproportionate majority of child molesters are heterosexual... Do you consider it safe to expose children to heterosexual teachers?

11. Just what do men and women do in bed together? How can they truly know how to please each other, being so anatomically different?

12. With all the societal support marriage receives, the divorce rate is spiraling. Why are there so few stable relationships among heterosexuals?

13. How can you become a whole person if you limit yourself to compulsive, exclusive heterosexuality?

14. Considering the menace of overpopulation how could the human race survive if everyone were heterosexual?

15. Could you trust a heterosexual therapist to be objective? Don't you feel that he or she might be inclined to influence you in the direction of his own leanings?

16. There seem to very few happy heterosexuals. Techniques have been developed that might enable you to change if you really want to. Have you considered trying aversion therapy?
