It’s always astonishing why gay’s in particular, are so hateful against the very people who would represent their own protection if they had power, like Donald Trump, Nigel Farage, Marine LePen, etc. Currently, the West is being flooded with migrants from countries (not only Muslim countries) where extreme anti-gay sentiments are the norm. The largest amount of gay hatred tend to come from men who are in the closet. They think it will go away if they hate gays or somehow try to ban homosexuality.
