Iceland Trolls Mike Pence With Rows Of Rainbow Pride Flags September 5, 2019

Pence gets trolled: Taunting the deplorable vice president, Iceland trolls Mike Pence by flying rainbow pride flags to show their commitment to diversity and their rejection of the anti-gay Christian bigotry promoted by Pence.

Advocate reports:

Notoriously anti-LGBTQ Mike Pence was trolled in Iceland by a row of rainbow flags as he arrived Wednesday to meet President Gudni Johannesson.

The Guardian reports:

As Mike Pence pulled up to Höfði House in Reykjavík, he was met not only by Iceland’s president, Guðni Jóhannesson, but also a row of rainbow flags.

Commenting on the sea of rainbow flags,  Ægir Már Þórisson, Director of the Advania technology company which participated in the display of pride flags, said:

We just felt the need to celebrate diversity today and wanted to show that by flying the flags.

There is good reason to troll Vice President Pence. The man is a rabid homophobe who wants to deny civil civil rights to LGBT people, and wants taxpayer money to pay for gay conversion therapy, the despicable attempt to force a child or young adult to reverse their sexual orientation or gender identity, often to satisfy the religious superstition and bigotry of ignorant parents.

As reported by PolitiFact, during his first successful run for Congress in 2000, Pence advocated for government funding of gay conversion therapy on his campaign website, under a section called Strengthening the American Family:

Resources should be directed toward those institutions which provide assistance to those seeking to change their sexual behavior.

In other words, Pence wants taxpayers to pay for what many rational observers believe is child abuse.

On Twitter, the reaction to Iceland trolling Pence was largely positive, with many people of Icelandic heritage praising the move. The following is a sample of the reactions:

Bottom line: Iceland trolls Mike Pence by flying rainbow pride flags to show their commitment to diversity and their rejection of the anti-gay Christian bigotry promoted by Pence.
