Hi, conservative politicians.

We’ve seen your responses to the massacre in Orlando. We’ve read your messages. We’ve listened to your statements. And here is our response:

Fuck you.

Each and every one of you has spent years attacking, dehumanizing and oppressing the LGBT community. Just last week, you were telling America that trans women would rape our daughters in public bathrooms. Now you expect us to believe you’re sad?

Fuck you.

You helped make this happen. And once the bodies are cleaned up, you’re going to go right back to pushing anti-LGBT laws.

Fuck your prayers.

You use your religion as a cudgel to beat LGBT people with. Fuck your prayers.

YOU LIE. Here’s Rep. Joe Wilson on LGBT rights:

Fuck your heart.

Mitt Romney on LGBT rights:

Sen. Orrin Hatch on LGBT rights:

The Associated Press, 1999, on Orrin Hatch:
Hatch says when he told fellow Republicans at their state convention two months ago that they should be proud of their party because “we don’t have the gays and lesbians with us,” he didn’t intend the comment to sound prejudicial.

Fuck your erasure.

Fuck your refusal to acknowledge that this was an attack on LGBT Americans, many of whom were black or Latinx. Framing it as a generic terrorist attack helps you sidestep the problem of homophobia—a problem you contribute to.

Paul Ryan on LGBT issues:

Florida Gov. Rick Scott on LGBT rights:

Michael McCaul on LGBT rights:

Fuck your war-mongering.

Fuck your attempts to blame Islam for homophobia while using your Christian faith as an excuse to oppress LGBT people. Fuck you for trying to exploit 50 dead queer people to attack Muslims. Fuck your hypocrisy. Fuck your blood-lust. Fuck your diseased, broken version of Christianity.

Speaking of spreading hate and murder, here’s Rep. Mike Kelly on LGBT rights:

Speaking of attacks on people’s freedoms, here’s Sen. John Boozman on LGBT rights:

Fuck you three in particular.

Last year, Republican presidential candidates Mike Huckabee, Ted Cruz and Bobby Jindal took part in a rally where a pastor advocated the death penalty as punishment for homosexuality.

Mike Huckabee on LGBT rights:

Ted Cruz on LGBT rights:

Bobby Jindal on LGBT rights:

Fuck every single one of you.

Fuck each and every one of you who condemn queer people while feigning shock that this mass-murder happened. Fuck you for expecting you to applaud your fake grief. You did this. Fuck you.
