Joss Whedon Claims Trump Will Purge Gay Males if You Don't 'Resist'

Joss Whedon is usually pretty good with words. After all, the third generation screenwriter penned the hugely popular television show Buffy the Vampire Slayer and the megahit film The Avengers. With that resume of his, one would honestly believe that the man wouldn't have difficulty with language comprehension.

Maybe he just has a problem with rational thought:

Now, let's keep a few things in mind.

President Trump -- despite what other members of the paranoid "resistance" may have dreamed up and told you -- has explicitly supported equal rights for gay Americans and appointed at least two in his administration. Here's openly gay Richard Grenell praising Trump for displaying a rainbow flag and for working with openly gay Peter Thiel.

Further, there's a lot of things going on in Chechnya that make a comparison to the United States ridiculous. For example, the New York Times quotes a Chechen official claiming that gay people can't be rounded up in that country because ... they don't exist.

Yes, really:

A spokesman for Chechnya’s leader, Ramzan Kadyrov, denied the report in a statement to Interfax on Saturday, calling the article “absolute lies and disinformation.”

“You cannot arrest or repress people who just don’t exist in the republic,” the spokesman, Alvi Karimov, told the news agency.

“If such people existed in Chechnya, law enforcement would not have to worry about them, as their own relatives would have sent them to where they could never return,” Mr. Karimov said.

Doesn't sound like Chechnya's official spokesman has much in common with official Republican spokesman Richard Grenell. Just sayin'.

Or Trump himself. Hey Joss: Find me an example of Trump claiming there are no gay people in the United States because their families would have murdered them.

He won't, and further, the paranoid Whedon will not find any other stance held by any other member of the Trump administration that advocates for any sort of persecution of any sort of law-abiding American. Winning? Please. As fascist overlords, the Trump administration downright sucks.

I stand in awe of how someone who created Firefly, possibly the most libertarian bit of science fiction television ever, could be such a simpering SJW that he honestly can't see the difference between Chechnya and the United States.

And since Whedon and the "resistance" is sure to respond with a mention of Trump's seven-nation travel ban: Advocating the murder of gays as official government policy is a massive problem in Muslim countries, such as Chechnya and the seven terror hotbeds. It's the type of belief that we must be discussing openly as we decide whom to allow entry to the United States.
