The rightwing conservative commentator Tomi Lahren ripped Sunday’s Gay Pride Parade in Los Angeles and the Equality March in Washington, DC, both Pride events which also demonstrated against Trump , for turning into #ResistMarch, calling it a “crock of crap” and “crybaby fest.”
Lahren, first posting on Twitter, she wrote: “You resist. We persist. Keep crying Snowflakes. #GreatAmerica”.
Later she shared a link to a Facebook video in which she hits out demonstrations, writing:
“So you turned your gay pride parade into a #ResistMarch huh? I have some Final Thoughts”.
Lahren said the move was not really to empower anyone, but rather to “gather in the streets and bitch about an election” they can’t accept.
“Hey resisters, you are so blinded by your Hollywood elitism and pop-culture glorified lifestyle that you’ve abandoned any sense of reason or purpose and transformed what had been a celebratory parade into a crybaby fest of bulls–t, congratulations,” Lahren said in one of her “Final Thoughts” video on Facebook.
She added, “We get it — you’re gay and guess what, we don’t care. President Trump doesn’t care. In fact, President Trump, unlike President Obama, stood up for your rights day one. Obama had to evolve, remember that? Or were you too busy waving your rainbows and screaming your profanities about our President?”
“There’s nothing more powerful than a group of determined people marching and standing up for what we know is right. #ResistMarch,” Sen. Kamala Harris tweeted.
Protester Lorelei Leslie — who, along with partner Melissa McCracken, are addiction counselors at Breathe Life Healing Center — spoke of replacing the parade with #ResistMarch.
“We have to do this or we might not have a parade next year,” protester Lorelei Leslie said.
Lahren responded, “Your rights are not threatened,” and asked, “Are you kidding me?”
The rightwing conservative said the GOP and people like President Trump have battled big government to protect the rights of LGBTQ people.
“The hypocrisy here is amazing,” she said.
