Neighbors Greet Vacationing Mike Pence With 'Make America Gay Again' Banner

Share

The daughters of the family that lives across the street, along with one of their friends, put up a sign that said "MAKE AMERICA GAY AGAIN" on a rainbow background.

The neighbors did not immediately respond to The Aspen Times' request for comment, but one woman, who claimed responsibility for posting the sign, reached out to correct Dissalvo's comment.

When Pence announced he was temporarily moving to the affluent Chevy Chase neighborhood in Washington, D.C., residents there posted rainbow flags outside their homes.

Pence's holiday neighbor hung the colorful banner on a stone column that stands at the foot of the driveways leading up to the two homes Wednesday or Thursday, Pitkin County Sheriff's Deputy Michael Buglione told The Aspen Times Friday.

Buglione, the sheriff's deputy, told the Aspen Times that the Secret Service agents were not bothered by the banner and were cordial with the residents who posted it. "When they said, 'We're not here to control your free speech rights, ' they came out with chili and began feeding them". "They've been really nice to us", he says.

The banners were hung by their daughters, and their action had the full support of their parents, Shannon Slade, a girlfriend of one of the daughters, who was also involved in the action, told the Aspen Times.

Just how anti-LGBT is Mike Pence?

President Donald Trump once said of Pence, during a conversation about gay rights, "Don't ask that guy - he wants to hang them all", according to the New Yorker.

The Mike Pence gay hate is so strong it almost destroyed his state's economy.

As governor of IN, IN 2015, Pence signed a bill called the Religious Freedom Restoration Act that "essentially legalized discrimination against homosexuals by businesses IN the state", the New Yorker reported.

The rest of the nation was disgusted. Soon people started threatening to boycott the state.

Over and over again, Pence has voted to prohibit same-sex marriage and permit anti-LGBT discrimination.
