Pete Buttigieg was confirmed by the Senate yesterday as Joe Biden’s transportation secretary, despite the opposition of some GOP senators. And, since the most important thing about Pete Buttigieg is that he’s gay, those senators are homophobes.
Bestselling author Don Winslow wants them named and shamed:
Who were the 13 Senators that voted against @PeteButtigieg?
We should publicize those names.

Don is too busy crusading for truth and justice to use Google, apparently.
It’s a matter of public record you dolt. https://t.co/KTDAppAQFY

Votes in the Senate aren't secret, nutjob. https://t.co/1MfpsQYKoO

Well, no matter. Others were willing to put in the work for Winslow:
The 2021 Homophobe Hall of Shame!
Remember them & their bigotry, when they run for reelection.@HawleyMO@MarshaBlackburn@marcorubio@TimScottSC@SenShelby@SenBillCassidy@RogerMarshallMD@SenRickScott@SenTuberville@SenTedCruz@SenTomCotton@BillHagertyTN@SenatorLankford

OK, so, now that Winslow has this information, what’s his next move? Will he deploy his ARMY OF CITIZEN DETECTIVES to confront these senators for being on the wrong side of history?
Were all the Dems who voted against Grenell's confirmation homophobes too?
After all, Grenell was the FIRST openly gay cabinet member.??♀️https://t.co/1DTwklLp2h

42 Democratic senators voted against confirming Richard Grenell as ambassador to Germany. Today, Democrats and the Left continue to gloss over Grenell’s role as the first openly gay presidential cabinet member. Clearly they’re even more bigoted than the Republicans.
Speaking of Richard Grenell, what does he think about this? We’d say he’s got more cred on this stuff than Don Winslow.
Every one of these senators who were in the senate in 2018 voted for my confirmation and Judge Patrick Bumatay’s confirmation.
Now publish the list of Democrats who voted against Patrick and me… https://t.co/RxsNyR87LU

What’s wrong, Don? Cat got your tongue?
But with you it was different, because… reasons. This was obviously discriminatory because… other reasons.

They love their lists

They certainly do.
Bullying, intimidation and targeted harassment.
