Dear Mr. VP,
You visited Philly this week. How excited was I to see openly gay Representative Brian Sims’ post to welcome you.
“OFFICIAL WELCOME: Vice President Mike Pence let me be the first person to officially welcome you to the City of Brotherly Love, and to my District in the State House!
To be clear, we’re a City of soaring diversity. We believe in the power of all people to live and to contribute: Black, Brown, Queer, Trans, Atheist, Immigrant, we want you and we’ll respect you.
So keep that in mind while you’re here raising money to attack more families, spread more lies, blaspheme with your bible, and maybe even talk to a woman without your wife in the room. We have plenty of them, and they’re pretty much all more powerful and more real than you have ever been.
So…get bent, then get out!”
Someone, somewhere, will tell Sims he should have remained civil.
I suppose I think if you deny someone’s humanity, they’re allowed to chuck you the bird.
