True story: One of the first things this editor did Saturday was subscribe to Gay Patriot Plus, and it didn’t cost $5.99 a month and, unless he gets banned again, will probably be around longer than four weeks. (In case you were looking for a similar deal, it’s @GayPatriotPlus this time around.)
There’s nothing particularly worthy about the tweet that inspired this one, but Eric Blair, whose Twitter avatar is George Orwell, whose Twitter handle is @protecttruth_, and who says he writes media industry tweets, warned against retweeting accounts like Gay Patriot Plus, who’s obviously trolling … his account has GOP dirty tricks all over it.
Mr. George “Protect Truth” Orwell thinks a gay DeSantis supporter has GOP dirty tricks written all over it. And not just any gay DeSantis supporter, but Gay Patriot.
Hey Will… I’m fake again. LMAO

Heh GP+ is more real than you are.

GP's been prominent on blogs and social media for two-ish decades.
Who are you, exactly?

Have you tried crying about it?

Gay Patriot has been around a long time. Maybe people should be careful about liking and retweeting you.

Pretty bigoted of you to think that gays can only think one way….

The only troll account is you.

You are a prissy, limp wristed little ladyboy.
You are a drooling dullard stumbling through your own mental slapstick, and you will never satisfy anyone, sexually or intellectually.

Now that will get you banned from Twitter, unless you’re, say, Joy Reid saying it about Lindsey Graham or somebody.
