GOP candidate slams “weak and gay” Pride Month in vile video rant

Valentina Gomez is at it again. The GOP candidate running to be secretary of state in Missouri posted a vile video message this week criticizing “weak and gay” Pride Month. 

Instead, the 25-year-old real estate investor suggested Pride Month be replaced with “Family Month”. Or even, um, “P*ssy Month.”

“The weak and gay agenda is about to be shoved down our throats for the next month,” she began her video. 

“Why don’t we have a month celebrating American nationalism? Or a Family Month?” she continued. “Or P*ssy Month… for all the p*ssies out there like Don Lemon.”

“I will never allow for children to be sexualized, groomed and indoctrinated. And with all due disrespect, I am done peddling to the p*dophiles this flag represents.”

Gomez is running in the August 6 GOP primary to choose the candidate for secretary of state.

Although comparing queer people to p*dophiles is reminiscent of something from another era, Gomez`s latest video has had over 38k likes. 

Gomez continues to troll with “weak and gay” slogan

This is not the first time she has attacked the “weak and gay”. A previous campaign video showed Gomez burning LGBTQ books. 

Two weeks ago, Gomez made headlines when she posted a video of herself jogging, wearing a military-style vest, and imploring people to toughen up. 

“In America, you can be anything you want,” Gomez says. “So don’t be weak and gay. Stay f***ing hard.”

The video featured a background track by Lupe Fiasco. Copyright infringement led to the video’s removal. Gomez subsequently slammed Fiasco for having the video taken down.

“@LupeFiasco is weak and gay. You should thank me for making you relevant again, after 15 years of not producing a hit,” she said in a tweet.  

Local Democrats and LGBTQ advocates slammed Gomez’s previous video. 

Missouri state House Minority Leader Crystal Quade (D), said, “To all LGBTQIA Missourians, your existence should not be used as a political football … You’re loved & belong in Missouri & I won’t stop until our laws reflect that.”

Brandon Wolf, national press secretary for advocacy group HRC, tweeted, “‘Don’t be weak and gay’ supremely underestimates the strength required to coexist with idiots like this every day.”
