Anti-LGBT forces are feeling empowered after Donald Trump's win in the electoral colleg,e and one right-wing activist is calling for the president-elect to dismantle New York's Stonewall Inn, the birthplace of the modern LGBT rights movement and a new national monument.
Writing on Matt Barber's Barbwire website, sci-fi writer-homophobe-racist Paul Hair writes that destroying Stonewall is retribution for President Obama honoring "sodomy" by designating the tavern as a national monument. Hair also directs ire at Kentucky officials who moved a Confederate monument in Louisville to a different location.
"The dismantling of the monument is part of the progressive campaign to destroy all reminders of the Confederacy," Hair writes. "This campaign, in turn, is part of the larger effort to demonize and destroy all of U.S. culture.
"Demonizing and destroying American culture includes elevating evil. This is why the Obama regime honored sodomy by designating the Stonewall National Monument in June of this year."
Hair urges Trump to remove Stonewall's historic designation. "And if that effort proves successful, it then would make it possible to destroy the Stonewall Inn and wipe out its stain on American history."
