5. My USAF father flew combat in three wars and my US Navy uncle was killed in WWII.

Bringing supplies to the marines on Guadalcanal.

I can 100% guarantee that they did not put their lives on the line so that
my daughter can be hunted down like an animal because she is gay.

The world should be glad both men are in heaven now,
because if my father and uncle could see what Nazi fascists
have done to this country, and that my child is in danger,
the cussing would be epic and nonstop.

Highly recommended democrank Apr 2023 #1
