Milo Yiannopoulos, whose current claim to fame is leading a completely unprovoked Twitter attack against Leslie Jones—one that got him banned from the platform after years of abusive language and behavior, presided over what Rolling Stone calls the RNC's hottest ticket, a party meant to use Islam as a wedge issue in order to scare up LGBT votes.
Via Rolling Stone:
[The Left has] done nothing for gays. While you were busy hectoring and bullying and nannying us about transgender pronouns, you completely forgot that politicians in this country were welcoming in a religion that wants us dead.
This is the hottest party of the Republican National Convention. It is the party everybody wanted to get in. It is the party everyone wanted to be at. And why? Because this is the group that is going to take the power back ... This is the group that is going to turn 'round to the left and say, “You don't own us anymore. Sorry, honey.”
Yeah, we'll show that Democratic Party that we don't need them, after it's been the only of the two major parties that has been pro-LGBT in any real way. They've given us nothing? Really? Not the right to serve in the military, to wed? Nothing?
The GOP is really helpful because hey, they're not killing us like the Muslims. They're just trying to disenfranchise us to death:
I'd rather be disenfranchised than tossed off a building, but I also live in the U.S, so my priority is working on my rights here, where Democrats are—in fact—the ones who give a damn about LGBT people. If he's so upset—I doubt he has the capacity to care—about how LGBT people are treated abroad, I invite Yiannopoulous to go on a speaking tour of said places. It couldn't hurt.
