.@TulsiGabbard You seem unfamiliar with your own record on this issue.

You led actual protests in HI against #LGBTQ people.
You called gay people "homosexual extremists."
You stopped funding to schools, saying you didn't want "homosexuality promoted."
1/
.@TulsiGabbard You refused to back initiatives to address anti-gay discrimination in the schools, claiming--even as you,an elected official, were discriminating against #gay people--that there was no discrimination against gay teens, which has been well-documented for decades.
2/
.@TulsiGabbard Your support and endorsement of virulently anti-gay groups included working for an organization that promoted the dangerous pseudo-science of #ConversionTherapy.

Here's my in-depth investigation on it for @damemagazine. Please read it.

.@TulsiGabbard Your record on #LGBTQ issues is comparable to that of @VP Pence, who has been roundly excoriated for his #homophobia. You (& your father)have hidden behind a D instead of an R, but your record is one of an enemy, not and ally,and appears no different from Pence.

.@TulsiGabbard Your friends may be willing to hand-wave your record--a legislative record in HI that damaged real, live, #LGBTQ people, especially vulnerable teens and families that wanted to marry and/or adopt, but for YEARS your bigotry and hate hurt people badly.
5/
.@TulsiGabbard You claim in this video to have changed but just weeks ago you attacked your fellow senator @MaziHirono for not bending her will to religious extremism in America.

How can we possibly believe you.
6/
.@TulsiGabbard Now that you want a higher office, you think a @YouTube video can mitigate your past.
But what about all the families you kept apart?
All the kids who got beaten up at school every day?
All the parents you gave permission for #conversiontherapy?
What about them?
7/
.@TulsiGabbard You say you're "sorry" yet just weeks ago you assailed your own senator @MaziHirono for standing against the religious extremism in this country that supports the very actions you participated in for YEARS.

#LGBTQ people do not trust you.
And we will fight you.
8/
.@TulsiGabbard The office of president is not the same as hosting the #Oscars for one night. Your actions had long-term and lasting consequences. What assurances do we have that once in office you wouldn't revert to your previous actions which spanned years?

Withdraw.
Aloha.
