Pulse survivor: ‘We have homophobic psychopaths running the US government’

Pulse survivor Brandon Wolf

A victim of the Orlando shooting at the Pulse club in Orlando believes the current US government are ‘homophobic psychopaths.’

In a scathing interview of the current administration on Joy Reid’s MSNBC show, Vice-President of the Dru Project Brandon Wolf said: ‘I just want to cut through it all and keep it very real with people about what we’re up against.’

‘We have homophobic psychopaths running the United States government,’ he added.

Wolf survived the Pulse shooting and is now a vocal advocate for gun reform in the States. The Dru Project is an LGBTI advocacy group that honors victim of the massacre Drew Leinonen.

In the interview, Wolf also launched an attack on Vice-President of the United States Mike Pence. He claimed Mike Pence wants to put gay people in concentration camps.

He said: ‘If Mike Pence, God bless him, ended up in the White House, sitting behind that desk in the Oval Office, he would have us all in concentration camps hoping to pray away the gay.’

Wolf then added: ‘The gay agenda is to survive until tomorrow.’

He also said it’s a daily struggle to survive for LGBTI people of color and especially trans women of color. Wolf claims the current administration is ‘derailing the conversation’ and ‘turning back the clock on everything we’ve worked so hard on.’

Mike Pence has never claimed he wants to put gay people in concentration camps.

Gay Star News reached out to Mike Pence’s office for comment but have yet to receive a response.

HRC: Mike Pence ‘poses one of the greatest threats to equality’

A new report by the Human Rights Campaign labels Mike Pence ‘one of the greatest threats to equality’ for LGBTI people.

The human rights group slams the US vice-president for going ‘under the radar’ in Trump’s ‘scandal-ridden’ administration. They’ve launched a website and video addressing Pence’s anti-LGBTI history.

This history includes previously joking with Trump about ‘hanging gay people’, opposition to anti-discrimination policies and opposing hate crime protections.

HRC President Chad Griffin said in a statement: ‘Mike Pence has made a career out of attacking the rights and equal dignity of LGBTQ people, women and other marginalized communities.

‘Now as vice-president, he poses one of the greatest threats to equality in the history of our movement.
